James Fitzsimmons' new building is the highest business house on Wood River, the studding being thirty-four feet high. T. E. Clohecy and family visited Hai ley hist Wednesday.

Mr. S. is engaged on the Fitzsimmons' building. The Douions. The Boulon's Musical and Dramatic Combination appeared in Union Church Thursday and Friday evenings to crowded houses aud an appreciative patronage. That the Boulons are tal ented there is no room for doubt, and the best evidence of their appreciation boro is in the very liberal patronage se cured. We cannot take room to deline ate a criticism of the various parts per formed here on the two evenings, but pronounce the whole well worth attend ing. Mr. Boulon and family are, we understand decided to remain on Wood River through the winter, and they will furnish the towns of Bellevue, Hailey, Ketchum aud Bullion with an excellent ball room orchestra, as well as an occa sional entertainment. They are not among strangers, and we hope w ill have many more friends among us. The Harris Lode. Mr. Wm. Harris has made a new Btrike on the Harais location, on Elkhorn Hill. He came to town Thursday with some beautiful specimens of bright, solid ga lena. which was found in a feeder to the main Harris ledge, about 100 feet west of the discovery. It pitches into an enormous quartz ledge, which seems seperate from the discovery vein aud gives flattering indications of an im mense ore body a short distance below the surface. We are glad to see the old pioneers getting rewarded for their frontier hardships. Cord Wood. Cord wood is selling in Ketchum at $3.50, $4.00, and $4.50 per cord.

The Philadelphia Company Is Flooded with Ore Khipmnnts from Bullion and Other Camps, and is at Last Com pelled to Pat a Limit on Receipts. Ore receipts at the Philadelphia smel ters have finally grown so large that the company has, we understand, been obliged to place a limit on the purchase of high grade ores until such a time when an increased operation, or at least greater capacity and better trans portation than the winter season will allow, does away with the risk of too much dormant capital. There is espec ial risk in the acceptation of high grade lead ores at this season of the year, since the limited winter transportation may render shipment impossible, or very expensive, for several months. During this time bullion from ores naturally almost bullion, lies on hand as dead capital, causing great loss to the com pany. Bullion turned out to lay over till spring might just as well be worked in the spring, and being purchased at time, save the risk of bleeding a live industry. THE A. 0. U. W. A New Lodge to be Formed in Eetchum. A lodge of the Ancient Order of Uni ted Workmen will be instituted in Ketchum on Monday evening next by J. W.

Moslv, George Metzlar aud George Johnson. Additional names may be added to the list upon application to any of the above. The medical examination necessary to precede admission to the order will be made by Dr. Lev is. Gone to New York. Vice President Vernum, of the Colum bia A Beaver Mining Jc Milling Company at Sawtooth, took leave lust evening for the headquarters of his company in New York City. He returns to his fel low capitalists interested in the C. A B. operations here, jubilant in the assur ance aud satisfaction that his exertions at Sawtooth have been rewarded with unquestionable success. The leaching process, tried and put into vigorous operation, he has banished a great cloud of doubt from the public mind, and placed the C. A B. operations iu a good, dividend paying condition. Mr. Ver num will return to Sawtooth Got. 20th, and will then run the mill just so long as possible before closing down for win ter, probably longer than most people in that vicinity expect. At present, in his words, "Silver is accumulating on them very rapidly." and it is a part of Mr. Vernum s mission east to lay iu a supply of crucibles, which are short at the works, and other stock for a steady operation.
