WM JONES, Prop ; ! j j Neighboring News. Dr C. L Gtittinan of the Moscow hos pital has recently purchased an aulomo bile of the Olds Mobile type which he ill use in his professional work. The Mountaineer says there is a wild man living about 30 miles np the Middle Fork from Kooskia He lives in a dug out and is digging a tunnel into the hill side in search of gold. The man is said to be well educated and is a religious fa natic The term of the district court which was set to convene in Moscow next Mon day has been postponed to an uncertain date. Judge Steele has two or more weeks of work at Lewiston and when that is completed he will open the spring term in Latah county. There are no cases of pressing importance here and the term when convened promises to be a light one. There will he a big Woodman picnic in Juliaetta on June 10 and it. The com mittee having the matter in charge met there last Saturday and fixed the above date as the more suitable. The officers for the occasion are A 1 Whitted, Genesee, president; H. W. Weber, Kendrick, Sec retary; F. Fox. Juliaetta; A. H. Webster, belaud; Dan Whybark and Dr. Beck, Genesee; Janies Bratcher of Kendrick, form the executive committee. The sec ond day's proceedings will piobably end up with and old-fashioned barbecue. A great time is anticipated. Mr. J. Shields & Co, the wholesale seedsmen, received many orders for corn wheat for seed which they'could not fill this spring. Many of these orders came from points east of the mountains, which leads Mr. Shields to believe the virtues of this cereal as an article of stock food are just becoming known in that section. In order to be prepared to meet this probable demand. Mix & Griffith have leased 100 acres of land near town from Mrs. 'iilia A. Moore, which they will sow to this grain, Mr. Shields agteeing to take the product at an agreed price. While this grain has been raised in this section before, it has heyer been under taken commercially. Small tract' of the orn wheat have yielded as much as 70 bushels to the acte here, and it is con fidently predicted that at least 45 bushels an acre can be raised during any average uop year.—Moscow Star. Train Robber Sent To Asylum. "Bob" Meeks, Montpelier bank rob in r, has been adjudged insane and will be committed to the asylum at Blackfoot. Dr, Collister, prison physician, swore t> a complaint charging Meeks with in finity, and the examination of the con vict was conducted by the doctors before the I'robate Judge in the office of Warden Perrin. It was shown that Meeks was afflicted with suicidal mania and that lie was otherwise out of mental balance. His removal from the penitentiary will relieve the prison authorities of a great deal of annoyance, as he was a very troublesome prisont r. Meeks first came into notoriety when in broad daylight he and three compan ions rode up to the Montpelier bank and robbed the institution of a large sum of money. His companions escaped, but Meeks was captured and sentenced to thirty-four years in the penitentiary. Later his sentence was v commuted. On Christmas Eve, 1901, Meeks, while engaged in outside work, fled to the hills °n a penitentiary horse. He was recap tured the following morning and on trial for breaking jail his sentence was dou bled. Last February, alter attempting to ** ver an artery iu his wrists he sneaked out of the prison gate under cover of a delivery wagon and again struck out for the hills, but a bullet in the left leg stopped his flight and so fractured the Lnib that amputation was necessary. While sunning himself inside the walls of the new cellhouse shortly after his discharge from the hospital. Meeks climbed up the trestle woik to the top of wall and after a few frenzied shouts to those la-low he dived to.the ground, * drty.fiye feet below Strange to sav he escaped with a shaking upand was strong e rn |u h to fight his attendants with a pair f, l shears, with which he tried to stab him ^df- His mother was sent for, and after er "rrival Meeks quieted down, but his teh ivior was so erratic that he required constant watching. .... reserve, was a visitor in the Sunday.

Newton Hibbs in a letter to a frien in Boise, dated at Roosevelt, April 14, says: E.veiylliiug looks good for the camp. The Dewey lias met the requirements that were fixed to termine whether or not the big mill was found on the lower level and at the end of the long tunnel. This was made the test of pernuyiency by the experts sent in by the stockhold ers last summer. _ '•A new tunnel half way mountain is now planned. lown the 'The Sunnvside is showing ut) in good form. The great ore body is proving to be uniformly rich. This mine has no parallel in the mining world. It is readily developed by natural conditions It is only necessary now after a com paratively small amount of prospect work to measure up the millions of tons of ore in sight and determine the most econ omical process of treatment. I, With the experts who looked over the Suntivside early in its history could formulate no theory that w-ould make values at depth certainty. The general distribution of gold over the surface was a remarkable condition but all the pessimists and ignoramuses counted for this display of values by theories of precipitation on the surface from the porphyry that was wasted in the process of eroston. It is now demonstrated that the enrichment is the result of chemical action that has carried the gold to great depth in this receptive dyke and precipated it through out millions of tons of ore. So far as the Sunnyside is concerned this theory is demonstrated and this fact develops the j mine. All that is needed now is a tape line to measure the reserves to be equal j to nil the productions of the Homestake, | and then to solve the big proposition of handling such a bulk of ore. This ore should 1 e reduced for 50 cents a ton and the biggest mill in the world could be run on the Sunnysi le reserves of £5 ore until the youngest stockholder in the company should die of old age. There was a new strike reported in the Dewey last Saturday. The boys were displaying a io-pound sample that showed at least fio in free gold and they reported a large body in one of the drifts on the 185-foot level. ''Good reports come from the Kansas City Gold Reef mine. The superintend ent reports large bodies of fy ore with veins that run into the hundreds. This shoeing demands a big mill. This mine on Monumental creek, five miles above Roosevelt." Mr. Hibbs is one of the best known mining men in Idaho, and has a reputa tion for good judgment and veracity that makes his report a reliable standard by which to measure the wealth ol the Thunder Mountain district. Didn't Mind Black Elies. A guide in the Maine woods was brag ging the other day about his indifference to the attacks of the big black flies, froai which those in his party were suffering greatly. A $to bet was made that he couldn't let the flies settle for five min utes on his bare back. The guide strip ped, and the insects came in good nnm bers and began to bite. He did not wince. Then one oi the party got behind him, took a burning glass out of his pocket, and, the sun being out, focused it on the guide's shoulders, The guide squirmed and wiggled. He stood it for some sec onds, then lie blurted out; 'I can stand all the .black flies in Maine, but brush away that durned bee!" Spell» Pekin with a "g" The United States board of geographic names has decided that "Peking" is tlie correct form in English to indicate the capital of China. The word has always been spelled with a "g" down to Febru ary 3, 1897, when the board of geographic names voted to shorten it to the Canton ese dialect sound "Pekin." Miss K. R. Scidmore, who spent many years in the far east, marshalled the tes timony and conducted the campaign which resulted in the restoration of the "g." The war department is embarrassed by the new order, inasmuch as its con iiection with the expedition to China in volved a mass of printed reports and maps in which the name is misspelled according to the latest decision. A man was standing in front of a Saranac Lake market the other day. He had a basket and a fishing rod. "Just throw me a dozen perch and bull .heads." lie said to the owner of the "Certainly," replied the owner, "but why do you ask me to throw them to you?" , „ , "So I can no home aud tell my wife 1 caught them," was the reply. "I may be a poor fisherman, but I ain no liar. Exchange. ABSTRACT SHEET FOR NEZ PERCE COUNTY Prepared by H. K. Barnett, Abstractor, for Week Ending April 24 Deeds—Madison A. Kelly to Clarence L.

University of Montana has writ t en to the University of Idaho fora field meet to take place in Moscow some time in May. Captain Murphy advises that there is good prospect of the meet being pulled off as desired, owing t< the fact that the Salt Lake trip is off for this year. The Mormons wanted loo big a guaranty for next year, and it was not thought advisable to close up the con tract. As this is the case, the athletes are now turning their eyes toward Montana and expect to meet the team from that state next May. Preparations will bei made in that direction. The Salt Lake trip appeared to be a certainty and a great many hopes were built upon it, hut the Montana meet may be just as good The University of Idaho track team is in much better shape this year than last. The team is also much stronger, and as Washington is weaker, the Idaho team has hopes of winning. Great improve ment has been shown in the distance runs and in the mile the college team will spring a surprise. The 440 yard is strong this year as compared to last. The other places on the teatu were strong last year, and as the colle R e ha * not lost any men it is need le9s to say that they will he strong in that department this jear The first meet is with Pullman. It conies off May 2. The following is the ^ st of men and how they will run: too yards, Tilley, Horton; 220 yards, Tilley.
