•This company waa organized a abort

and absorbed the old Kt Joe Transpor

new company has fully demonstrated
its ability to secure busineeee and baa

Pacific which we did not enjoy before.
It is a home Institution, buys its sup

ployes are residents of the town. What
money it earns is circulated here and
we believe all will agree with us in the
statement that It should receive the
patronage of our merchants and all
others who have anything to ship.
Goods from Portland, Kan Francisco,
Omaha, Kt. Louis sod other points
reached by the U. P. system should be
shipped via the People's Transportation
Co. The company proposes to build a
large, tins steamer; but before this is
done the people of this city will be
asked to assist the enterprise, not by
donations or bonuses, but by subscrib
ing for some of the stock which is
worth par to-day and will soon be pay
ing a good dividend. Looking at the
matter from a business point, it is a
good investment and tbe sooner this
stock is taken the sooner the new boat
will be built, the machinery for which
is already purchased. The company
only asks that our people subscribe for
B3.UJ0 of the stock.

Tka It Joe Miaioff District
Mr. Charles Boyd, an old resident of
tbe upper Kt. Joe, has been visiting the
city and informs us that the Kt Jon
Mining Co. will commence working
three shifts of eight hours each, on their
claims. They have six feet of ledge
matter in their shaft, at fifty feet from
the surface. They will commence next
week on a drift that will strike tbe
ledge about two hundred feat below
their present shaft They have a fine
prospect, so far the rock averageing by
assay one-hundred and twenty-five dol
lars per ton. In the immediate vicinity
of this ledge are numerous others of
equal value, no doubt; but have not
been thoroughly tested, In fact this
portion of the Cceur d'Alene mountains
baa never been prospected to any ex
tent for quartz. Years ago, about 1870
and 71, during the Cedar creek excite
ment, there waa considerable prospect
ing done for placer, and while we were
in Cedar creek in 1871, parties from
that country brought, what would be
considered now, fine specimens of gold
and silver bearing quartz. We remem
ber several specimens that showed free
gold and one or two that was full of
wire silver, but in those days prospectors
were not looking for quartz; if they
had been, the Coeur d'Alenes would
have been discovered twenty years be
fore they were, as hundreds of miners
tossed through that country prior to
1864 and considered worthless what is
now one of tb* richest quartz mining
districts ia the United States. As we
liave before remarked, the mountains of
tbe upper Kt Joe and its tributaries af
ford a field unequaled by any
section of country we know of
for the prospectors. Why prospectors
give the Kt Joe basin and adjacent
mountain ranges the go-by, is, to say
the least, singular, as it is surrounded
on all aides by rich quartz and placer
mining camp*. This is practically a
new field for the prospectors, and one
worthy of their steel.
Preserve Pruitt for the Pair
Kootenai county should have a credit
able fruit display at the World's Fair
and those who have good specimens
should preserve them for this purpose.
Tbe cost will be small and there is no
reason why our county shook! not have
a fine display.
The preservative fluid should neither
cause the fruit to swell, so as to in
crease its size, nor should it have ths
opposite effect of causing it to shrink.
This implies that iu Uie exchange
will unavoidably occur between the
juice* inside and the fluid outside, the
two sliall pass through th* akin with
about equal rapidity, and this necessi
tates that the two liquids «H»n be
approximately of the same density.
For the purpose of regulating the
density of tlie fluid we would recom
mend glycerine, which can be obtained
so cheaply as to render it available to
It is not always, of course, easy to
ascertain the density of the juice of
fruita; but the following can be taken
as approximately correct for ripe fruita.
Apples and pears, about 12 per cent
Plums, prunes, peaches, apricots, about
10 per cent Cherries, about 12 per
cent Most berries about 8 per cent
Grapes, in California 18 to 32 per cent
It is only in very tender skinned
fruits that a tew per cent more or less
will make a difference in Uie result
Kince, however, fruit fuUy ripe is
usually too tender for transportation,
is usual to use for exhibition purposes
that which, though having attained its
full size and coloriug. falls considerably
short of the above sugar contents, aud
will be best in most cases to assume
at not over two-thirds of the above
figures and regulate tlie density of the
A solution of oue ounce of Salicylic
acid to live gallons of water, to which
as much glyreriue has been added as
corresponds to the density of the fruit
juice, constitutes a preservative fluid
which has been used with very satis
factory results. Heat or boil tlie water
before adding the acid and there will
be no difficulty in dissolving iu The
solution can also be mad* very easily
by tiie addition of a little carbonate of
soda isal-sodak without heatiug. But
when making use of the soda it is abso
lutely necessary to avoid an excess, aa
the uucombined soda exerst a very in
jurious influence upou the preservation
If the fruit thus preserved is to be
kept for a considerable length of time,
is well to use double the amount of
acid, per gallon, making half of it dis
solve by means of carbonate of
carefully added, and then the remainder
