full time, and about 40 men are em
ployed underground keeping it sup
plied. Much development is going on
under the management of F. L Glroux,
who has decided to ship his concen
trates to the El Paso smelter by -way
of Lake Valley instead of Cutter, as
was originally intended when the
company made its tan road to that
point, as the former is the most eco
nomical. Manager Giroux has offered
the use of five stamps of the mill for
custom work, and the McPhersons are
hauling a thousand sacks of ore from
their claims south of the Wicks for a
trial run. If this proves a profitable
venture there are several other parties
in the district who, propose to take ad
vantage of the offer.
The "Wicks Gulch continues to ship a
carload of high grade ore monthly and
expects to double the output in the
near future.
A. I. Bird, -who is in charge of the
Garfield and Butlerproperties, has five
men cleaning up and preparing for
work on a large scale, as it is confi
dently stated that the $250,000 for
which the mines have been bonded to
the English parties is nearly all sub
scribed, although the bond does not
expire -until next August.
It is reported that Boston parties
are negotiating for the purchase of the
Mamie Richmond group.
Will Robins expects to resume work
on the Trio group shortly and with
the exception of the Richmond there is
not an idle mine in this neighborhood.
Xiake Valley is taking on new life iO
men are working on the property
cleaning out old stopes, clearing the
old workings, and it is the intention to
erect a smelter there as sooryas the
management has decided what capacity
will be needed. There are hundreds of
thousands of tons of low grade ores at
Lake which can be handled at a profit
now, that could not have been consid
ered in the early eighties when the
mine was first opened.

JKrriekerbocker Brings Re
port of Good Progress
in Grand County
C. 'Knickerbocker, one of the discov
erers and pioneers of the camp of
Sylvanite, Grant county, New Mexico,
which went through a considerable
gold excitement about three years ago,
has returned to El Paso from a visit at
that camp and reports that there are
a number of the old timers who have
Just completed their assessment work,
and a number of them are also doing
development, and says they are entire
ly satisfied' with their showing. Ed
Clark, postmaster at the camp, is mak
ing arrangements to sink a shaft on
his claim, that is located between the
"Wake Up Charley" and the "Creeper."
This claim shows considerable free
gold on the surface, with a fairly good
sized lead.
Charles Zelger, of El Paso, is large
ly interested in that camp, being the
owner of the "Wake Up Charley," the
"Broken Jug" and the "Creeper." Ho
has done a great amount of work on
his property, with excellent results.
Mike Wilcox, one of the original
owners of the Gold Hill property, re
ports doing work on the east side of
the Hachlta mountains and has struck
a streak of rich silver-lead ore.
Resumption of Alvarado Is
One Good Feature.
Other Developments.
ParraL Mex., Jan. 17. The future tor
the Parral district looms up brighte
than ever since the Alvarado started
to grind, and the Veta Colorado made
good its word to buy ore. Fifteen hun
dred tons in one lump were purchased
of P. B Butler, representing the own
ers of the Santa Gertru&is property by
the Veta Colorado company at first,
and several more purchases are pend
ing The price paid for the Santa Ger
trudis ore was not made public but the
burro freighters are receiving in the
neighborhood of U25 cents per ton for
transporting it to the company's
The Alvarado is considering several
offers for ore, and it is very likely
that the deals will be consummated
shortly. The Alvarado has at present
on the dumps sufficient ore for a two
year run, based on the present capaci
ty of the plant.
Several easterners are due in this
city within the next few weeks.
Santiago Hambleton left for his
Mlna Maria property in the Roncesval
les district to be gone a short time.
The Maria struck a nice body of ore
about two weeks ago and some ship
ments have been made that have
brought pretty good values

Woman's most glorious endowment is the power
to awaken and hold the pure and honest love of a
worthy man. When she loses it and still loves on,
no one in the wide world can know the heart agony
she endures. The woman who suffers from weak

a man. Her general health suiters and she loses
her good looks, her attractiveness, her amiability
and her power and prestige as a woman. Dr. R.V. Pierce, of Buffalo, N.Y., with
the assistance of his staff of able physicians, has prescribed for and cured many
thousands of women. He has devised a successful remedy for woman's ail

A 30 ton carload of ore was shipped
to the El Paso smelter during the past
week from the Fortuna mine in the El
Tlgre district of Sonora. This prop
erty has shipped much ore during the
past year. It is largely owned in El
Paso and Morris B. Parker has had
charge of all the development. Values
In the ore last shipped were $145 per
ton, being 3.7 ounces gold, 127 ounces
silver and 4.9 percent copper, 14 per
cent lead. Another carload of ore is
at the railway at Tsabel station and
will soon be brought to the smelter.

shows the vein an average width of 3
feet, and it has a continuous streak of
shipping ore nine inches wide that as
says 120ounces silver, 1.35 ounces gold,
5 percent copper, and 12 percent lead
the balance of the vein averages $2&
