Simmons of Rapid City is spending the winter in Chicago for tho purpose of furthering ccrtain Blaok Hills enterprises. Mr. Simmons, from his long residence in and thprough knowl edge of the Hills, is a valuable man to have in tho oast, as what he says iu re gard to tho properties of the Hills can bo safely relied upon. He is personally ac quainted with nearly every miuing claim in the entire region, and his knowledge of them will be of incalculdble advantage to eastern investors desiring information. A Sure Thin?. The leaching works, that liavo been talked of so long and so much maligned by those who seem to take delight iu blackmailing Black Hills industries, aro to bo built very soon in Deadwood. Mr. Karris Franklin, the representa tive of the company who intend building tho plant, has returned from Novada and California where he has been ongaged in aEamiuing the process for some time, loaded down with facts and figures drawn from exhaustive experiments made under tho direction of R. A. Clark, the patentee of the leaching process. It has been es tablished that over 80 par cent of the value of tho oro can be saved readily. Mr. Clark has been engaged to superin tend the works, both in constructing'and operating. The plant at first will be of fifty ton capacity, costing about $00,000. A« soon as possiblo it wiU be enlarged to 125 tons, at a cost of $100,000. Tho building will bo 60x15.0 feet, and 400, 000 feet of lumber and 150,000 brick will bo used in its construction. -AH the work will bo performed at Deadwood, ex cept for tho rollers, furnace, engine and red wood for tho leaching vats, which will come from California. Mr. Clark says he can erect the works in ninety days from the time he starts in. The works will employ forty men reg ularly in the fifty-ton plant and use 400 cords of wood a mouth. This will give employment to at least 250 men outside tho works, and if the plant is increased to 100 tons the force will be doubled. Ore can be reduced at a cost of $5.80 to $7 per ton. By this it will be seen that mine owners whose ore runs from $20 to $40 per ton have a bonanza. Much credit is due to the promoters of this enterprise for their untiring eitorts in bringing about a solution of this great problem of reducing our refractory ores. This plant will be a benefit not only to Deadwood, but to the entire Hills, and all inhabitants will feel the effects of this industry as soon as it begins to build. We hope tho erection of tlio plaut will bo begun at .once. v.s,J -, Clearing Sale of Ladies' Cloaks* Days Wo Shall Sell the balance of Our- CLOAK STOCK AT HALF PRICE REGARDLESS OF COST Wo shrill also inaugurate a sale of- X^errxrisbrits c&, Sliox*t'31_.en.gtlis In all departments until all are sold.

PER ANNUM Bachelors' Ball, s On Thursday evening last, forty-five couples met at tho ranch of Mr. E. T. Hoffman, about twenty milos from Stur gis, on Alkali creek, and participated in a dance continued "till broad day light," gotten up by the old bachelors of that locality headed by-"Sandy" Taylor, D. P. Flood and Mr. Hoffman. It is needless to any that all had a great timo, for when a parcel of old thorough-bred bachelors set out to have eoino fun, the generally know how to have it. A fino supper was prepared by these same old-maid-mon, on an extensive scalo, no less than half "critter" and forty yellow-legged spring chickens being prepared, to form the base of operations for tho after-math of cakes, coffee and sweetmeats. Several of tho young ladies were heard to re mark that thoso boys who did the cook ing wore just as good husbands as thoy wanted and there was no need of looking farther, for- they "would bo so hand}', yon know." The music was furnishod by "Alkali Bob" and Tow Hurley, vio linists, wliilo James Aubroy manipulated the month-organ. A party of seven couples from Sturgis on their way out to tho party, stopped at the ranch of Mr Rood and "hold hini up" for their sup pers. It is snpertkms to romark they got them. Altogethor, everyone dind good time, and one and all declared the bachelors first-class entertainers and A1 housekeepers.

He reads the Chicago Inter Ocean one night, and the following day he howls for protection. The next night he devours the Atlanta Constitution and rises from his -virtuous couch at tho dawn of the now day a rank free-trador. He don't know what the trouble is, he says. Wo think tho troublo is in tho captain himself. He is too big to be affected by such liomcopathic doses. Take a good stifi alleopathic doso of oither. and then it may stick, captain. G. C. Searlcs of the Sioux City engrav ing company, who is on a sketching tour through tho Hills in the interest of the Chicago & Northwestern, was in town on Thursday looking around at some of our natural scenery. If arrangements be niado with him Sturgis will occupy a prominent positiea in a forthcoming publication, soon to appear.
