First publication i SITUATION AT THUNDER. Well, here we are in the fam ous Thunder Mountain country ithat is Ben and I) and find that the stories that are floating around the Salmon River country about the scarcity of laborers to be an at least between seventy-five and one hundred idle men in Roose velt at the present time ready to go to work the first chance they have to do This I believe will be the ban ner year of Thunder Mountain but it is too early in the season to make any predictions. The roads and trails are impassable owing to deep snows in the moun tains and high water, and nearly all of the mining companies and stores are short of supplies. The " S unnyside which employs more men than any other one company had to suspend operation about 2 weeks ago owing to a defect in the workings of their tramway, but they expect to have this died and resume operations by June 1st. The success of this company means much to Thun der Mountain. They have spent thousands of dallars in the erec tion of a forty-stamp mill, tram way, boarding and bunk houses and on the road which was built from Boise last year. Judging from reports the "Sunnyside" has immense bodies of free-mill ore and is undoubtedly one of the largest mines in the State. The mine is at present under the management of Supt. Abbott. The H. Y. and Climax Co., have only three men in their em ploy at present, but will put on a larger force as soon as the snow disappears. The mine is now under the management of Peter Wagner, who was foreman of the "Sunnyside" mine last year. The "Standard" has a fine showing of high grade ore, and at the present time have a force of fourteen men at work under the management of Supt. Schnid er. This is a new company which started up late in the win exaggeration, as there are so. Company reme ter. The Dewey Company have been working a force of thirty all winter in their mine and men mill. This property is under the management of Supt. Hang and William Pryor —the latter is well known to all old Custerites and at one time was foreman of the "Skylark" mine at Bay horse. The 20th Century Company have about thirty men at work but they expect to double their force as soon as they can get the machinery in for their ten stamp mill which they will erect during the coming summer. The De Camp property Divide Creek have a small force at work and they have let a tract for the hewing of square timbers for a ten stamp mill which is to be erected this year. There are a great many people in this section who have claimed Custer county as their home at time or another, viz: Hicks, Myron Shonover, Lvnch, Mrs. Morris and daugh ter, Nick Dorsa, Frank Tully.

We have just issued a quantity of 28x42 three color 4th of July posters for the celebration at Challis. Even if those are not the re mains of John Paul Jones, he will never rise up to make a kick about it. Doubtless Japan will soon come forward with an "Asiatic" Mon roe doctrine of a new and im proved pattern. Louie, the Chinaman, offers to sell his vacant lot, wood and chickens in Challis, for $50, as he desires to go to China. Custer Lodge No. 21, I. O. O. F. elected the following officers for next term : N. G.—Lee Kerr. V. G.-Wm. Elder. How about a flag pole and a big flag for Challis ? It is only a few days to the Fourth, and it will not look much like a 4th of July without a large flag. Rain ! Rain ! Every day ! This is the best grass year ever known in this arid region of Ida ho. Little irrigation has been done here this season so far. There is a new kind of game in some portions of Idaho called "lemons." The game is to catch the prettiest girl in the bunch and squeezer. That makes the other girls look sour. New Jersey has furnished the crowning sensation. A man there has resigned a public posi tion on the ground that it is too easy, and ought to be abolished. Mr. Carnegie should give him a hero's medal at once. Custer Encampment No. 10, I. O. O. F. last Wednesday eve ning elected the following offi cers for the ensuing term : C. P.—Lee Kerr. H. P.— M. M.

Axel Olson departed Thursday for his home at Shelley, Idaho. W. R. Deem, representing the Sherman Piano House, of Butte, was in this city last week. Why is a newspaper like a woman? Because every man should have one of his own and not run after his neighbors. Earl Dodge had the main bone in his right arm fractured on Monday, the 5th. He was scuffl ing with Claude McKendrick and fell onto a rock. W. J. Lamme, Thos. J. Kerr, Duncan Williams, Henry Brad bury and Guy Bradbury depart ed last week on a prospecting trip to the Warm Spring Creek district. Chas. Waller, who has been over to Twin Falls since last fall arrived in Challis last week. He says Twin Falls is already a flourishing city of nearly 2,000 inhabitants. Miss Hazel Morrow and her brother, McKean, who have been attending school at the State University, Moscow, arrived^ in Challis Thursday morning en route for their home on Pah samaroi. Lawrence Phelan has discov ered a very rich lead on the South Fork near Smith's ranch and there is a good deal of ex citement over it at present. Some of the rock assayed $1000, and they have an immen se lead.

We've got two twins to our house and I'd swap 'em enny day for a billy goat ! President Roosevelt has sign ed the proclamation creating the Sawtooth forest reserve in this portion of Idaho embracing more than 1,900,000 acres of land. Ac cording statements the land is well timbered, practically all un surveyed and has no settlements except a few mining camps. The land is rough and has few roads and trails and has no agricultur al value, but is important for its forests, stock ranges and miner al resources. The reserve was was created to protect the timber but more particularly to protect the watershed of the Boise and Salmon rivers for irrigation and agricultural purposes. A farmer, living on Camas prairie, came to Grangeville one day this week, and the first thing he did was to go to the express office and load up a big box marked "Montgomery, Ward & Co.," and then drove to a certain store to sell some potatoes he had.
