A short time after a lodger, who the and as it was a little peculiar, he thought j once of getting up to see whether he was a ill, bnt did not do so. Between 11 and 12 a. m. yesterday a friend went to his j bed to get him up, and, after speaking j two or three times without receiving a ! reply, examined the face, and discovered ! that he was dead. From the appearance ! of the body death took place without a struggle. on ; While returning from the dance the 1 sleigh he was in tipped over and he j turned it back, using all the strength he ; H. had.

There is no one thing taken into our homes so dangerous as the ordinary re- j fined petroleum of commerce; hence, 1 the man who does not use care in buy- 1 ing his supply of coal oil is grossly ueg- j leering to provide for the safety of his family.

It Comes to the Front as n Genuine Bo nanza at a Depth of 100 Feet. On Christmas Eve the men at work in driving the tunnel to tap the Parker I vein at the depth of 100 feet, struck ore. i of and not till they had driven live feet further was the opposite wall of the j four tonsof high grade ore was extracted, consisting of azurite of copper, carbo nates and galena. This not only proves . . . for her among the great bonanzas of Wood River, there being nothing but (edge struck. In driving across tiie vein the mine a good one, but insures a place j solid ore between the walls, and that of a very high grade, judging from the up pearance of specimens that we have j seen. j Three tons of ore from this mine, ! worked as a sample, yielded 587) ozs. in ! silver per ton, and assays running as ! high as 2,865 ozs. have been made, The mine is situated on Elkhorn Hill, ; about one-fourth of a mile ubovo the 1 famous Elkhorn, and is owned by Geo. | Montgomery, Eugene Gillenwater, E. ; H. Terry, W. H. Watt and Sam.
