Editor Report, Cottonwood.
Very little has transpired since
last letter and everything is about
the same as usual, all claims and
prospects showing up in good shape
and prospecting good.
Work on the Black Jack mine
has been suspended for a few days
till more powder arrive» when it
will be carried on with its usual
vim, it is still looking in good shape
and an excellent hody of ore still
in view. A prominent mining man
and whose name we are not at lib
„erty to mention is now figuring up
*pn securing this mine as well as
several other companies in addition
to those mentioned in former letters,
so the probablities are that some
one will soon take hold of this mine
and by so doing secure a big bonan
za. '1 be Black Jack is all wool and
several yards wide at that.
Some work has been done upon
the McKinley and Emma of Sheep
Gulch, and everything done shows
a larger body of ore of an improved
quality and which widens with
depth, the company which bonded
it will be hereon orabout June 1st.
The Triangle Fraction on Fiddle
Creek is showing up very well, and
prospecting from surface.
Recording on the Glouchester on
Chair Creek is finished and an ex
cellent prospect can be had from
the surface in. Dr. McCallie and
T. M. Post are working on the Im
perial claim near Crawford creek
and it is showing up O. K. and
prospecting good. Flint & Barger
took out $60. in three hours work
upon their placer claim at mouth
of Sheep gulch. The largest nug
get in this lot weighed over $10.00.
About 90 per cent of the amount of
gold taken out of this claim the past
winter is rough quartz gold. We
are given to understand that a Mos
cow company proposes to wing dam
Salmon river at Spring bar near
Crawford creek, after the summer
rise is over. There is no question but
what this enterprise will be crowned
with great financial success. Tak
ing it all in all the Simpson min
ing district is improving greatly
and coming to the front with rapid
Btrides, the only complaint we hear
of is from our merchant, Mr. Cur
tiss, who says that it takes him
hustling continually to get in goods
to supply the ever increasing de
mand, but so far he has done very
well indeed.
Yours Respecfully,
Please aeeept this copy of
' 99 .
our annual for this year, with the
compliments of the Passenger De
partment of the Northern Pacific
We think that the cover is unus
ually appropriate, and artistic as
well. In these days of emigration
and new home-seeking, the text
should be of special interest to those
inclined to seek new homes and for
tunes. The Northwest is a large and
varied country and welcomes all to
test its resources and possibilities.
The'tourist and traveler may also
perhaps, lind in these pages some
facts and knowledge relative to
scenic beauty and health in this
grand region, heretofore unknown
to him.
The publication is of value in the
home and to school teachers and
Bcholars, and we gladly send it
mailed in special envelopes to any
address upon receipt of SIX CENTS
in stamps or otherwise.
Should you inform the public
that it can he thus obtained, I will
he pleased to receive Two Marked
Copies of your Journal containing
such announoment.
Very respectfully,
Chas. S. Fee,
My own theory is that a magazine
must be better this year than it was
last year to be as good as it was last
year. Everything in all lines is get
ting to he better and better. Every
year shows an improvement. The
people expect more, demand more,
and will have a right to demand
more, as long "as ftie world nuovee. !
A publisher cannot stand still. He 1
either goes backward or for war f. I
must do a bigger- business this year
to do as big a business ns I did last
year. Everything in business, as !
everything in life, is relative. If 1 «
just,where I stood last year, the
fellow behind me will, at thpend oh
the twelvemonth, have olosed up a
good deal of the gap between us, and
the fellow ahead of mo will have
widened the gap between us. 1
must move on and on and eternally
on. or, with the pace we set in these
days, it is only a question of a very
little time when I shall find myself
.put of the race. What is true of rhy
business is true of all business, it
seems to me, We must reach out
and out and out for wilder fields.
The advertisement is the natural
and most effective way of reaching
out. The reorganizing period is up
on us. It throbs with vitality and
life and interest. It is solving new
problems, opening up new theories,
establishing new linos. It means
that the big house will get bigger,
and that the small ones will disap- !
pear. Centralization,concentration,
is the thought and soul of the busi
ness world today. Regrets, lamen
tations, protestations, are unavail
ing. The new order of things is here,
and it has come to stay. It means
ruin to those who oppose rt; it means
riches and power to thoso who es
pouse it. It means oheaper goods
for the people, the greatest good to
the greatest number.— Munsey,
Carter's Monthly For May.
Cabthh's Monthly Magazine pub
lished in Chicago, and edited by Opie
Reed, is making rapid strides in the puls |
lie favor. It is tlie only 10 cent maga* !
zinc in Chicago devoted exclusively to !
American literature, and is certainly '
supplying the need for a western maga
zine. Each month the magazine pre
sents an interesting table of contents,
consisting of short stories, sketches of
travel, and articles of general interest,
all profusely illustrated; hut in addition
to this each number contains an article
of a philosophical, economic, or scientif
ic nature. The leading article in the
May number is ' Weltmerism—the New
Era in Healing." This is a capable re
view of the Weltmer Method of Mag
netic Healing, the new science that is
creating so much interest in the United
States and Europe. The article takes
up the question from a scientific stand
point, and shows the fundamental prin
ciples upon which the science is based.
The writer visited the Weltmer Institute
at Nevada, Mo., for the purpose of re
search, and was astounded at the mar
velous cures effected. Since Professor
Weltmer discoved the new science three
years ago and commenced its practice at
Nevada, over 70,000 patients have been
treated, and the halt, the lame, and the
blind have been cured. The article also
describes how the sick may be cured at
a distance by a system of treatment pre
scribed by Professor Weltmer, upon the
patients sending to him a statement uf
their eases. The cures effected by this
method are as remarkable as when per
sonally treated, The new science has
opened up another avenue of business
for young men and women, and hun
dseds are taking the course of instruc
tion. The Weltmer Method of Magnetic
Healing is winning the admiration of the
most noted physicians, for nearly all
the cures effected had been given lip by
doctors as hopeless. The remarkable
success attending his discoveries has
stamped Prof. S. A. AVeltmer as one of
tlie great men of the age.

Would Not Sutter So Again For
Fifty Times Its Price.
I awoke last night with severe
pains in my »tomach. I never felt
so badly in all my life. When I
came down to work this morning I
,felt so weak I could hardly work.
I w r ent to Miller & McCurdy's drug
store and they recommended Cham
berlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar
rhcea remedy. It worked like mag
ic and one dose fixed me all right.
It certainly is the finest thing 1 ev
er used for stomach trouble. I shall
not be without it in my home here
after, for I should not care to en
dure the sufferings of last night
again for fifty times its price.—G.

Ireland Has Had Many Names.
Few countries have suffered so
many changes of names as Ireland.
In the time of Ptolemy the island
was known as Scotia, Diodorous
Siculns calls the island Iris, or Iris;
in the De Mondo, credited by some
scholars to Aristotle, it is" called
Irenne; in the Araganautioa of
Orpnans it appears as Isinua;Stabo
called it Irene; Caesar, Tacitus and
I-, i , ,, .... - , l
I liny mentioned it as Hibernia; I
Mela called it Juverna. The native
names in Celtic are Ir. Erie or Erin '
Plutarch mentions it under the name
of Ogygai. The name Ireland is no
doubt derived from the native Ivor
>Eri, but when it came into general
use is a question concerning which
scholars are much at variance.
Cottonwood is a piosperous town

Admiral George Dewey,
Coming home, they say,
Bring out the anvils,
Let's have a holiday,
Shoot up colored rockets,
Turn the search-light high,
See the name of Dewey,
A-blazing in the sky.'
Didn't need a bath-tub,
On his Manila trip,
Didn't boast of fighting,
Never had the grip,
Sank tlie Spanish navy.
In a manner that was new,
Honored grand ''Old Glory,"
Did it ship-shape, too.
Didn't mention "canned beef,"
Got no reprimand,
Went about his business, •
"Child-like and bland.
Never wrote for magazines,
Had no tale to tell,
Led the fleet while fighting,
The whole world said, "'Tis well.
Ate salt pork in Hong Kong,
Never asked for pie,
Didn't wire "Hot weather," hero,
Didn't moan or sigh,
Didn't ask to eome home,
Stuck right to Ids ship,
Didn't get a bit scared,
Took no foriegn lip.
Admiral George Dewey.
Coming home, they say,
Bring out the anvils,
Let g have a holiday,
Shoot us covered rockets.
Turn the searchlight high,
See the name of Dewey,
