the county Is increasing, despite the
unusual amount of surface water in

during the same period in 1913 and
370 tons lor the previous month.
The ores mined last month carried
an average value of $42 a ton, as com
pared with $32 for the previous year.
This is the largest amount of ore
which the local sampler has handled
in several years, and indications point
toward a much larger tonnage during
this and the succeeding months of the
year, as the White Raven and Yellow
Pine mines now are shipping on an
average of 100 tons each a week. The
395 tons carried values as follows:
One hundred and forty-three ounces
gold, 25,7"2 ounces silver, 33,670
pounds of lead and pounds cop

cabin and break the news to the
widow.
"She was seated at a table eating
apple-dumplings when the man rode
up. He broke the news as gently as
possible. The woman listened quietly
with a dumpling poised In the air half
way to her mouth. When the man had

" ‘You-all Jest wait till I finish this
