The new Devils Hollow t.iuntij lies east of the Spring nci, east of Quapaw, where the Chailes M. Schwab interests hae taken an op tion on 2,700 acres and about a dozen mills. It has alvvavs been known that there were beds of ore there, but the fact that the water in that sec tion will bo strong enough to make mining out of the question except with companies with unlimited capi tal has kept the prospectors from making any special headway. The water is of the artesian type, in some cases spurting from the ground from wells not more than 150 feet in depth. Ore is found in some places from the grass roots on down as far as any one has gone with their tests. PREMIUMS FOR DOG HELPED TO POULTRY SHOW, CONVICT SLAYER i MKS.
