Dr. Higgins assures us. is pretty good at present. Considerable real estate is now changing hands. Getting in shape for the Fall boom. we reckon. She‘s a-coming. The moon gets as full as a tick now-o‘nights, and therein she resembles certain citixens of the Reef we wot of. Messrs. Quillan & Mahony will open their new and tastily-furnished Temple of Liquid Refreshments on Saturday evening. “Judgments are prepared for scorners, stripes for the backs of fools," and everlasting damnation for him that payeth not for his newspaper. Fall weather is now upon us. All doubt as to “whether“ it would “ fall“ cold enough to sleep under anything but a mosquito bar, is now removed. The ﬁnishing touches are being put to J. H. Cusidy's new and elegant residence at the north end of Main street. The building is a. credit to the street.

Outlook for the Reef. Captain Lubbock. who has been rusticating in Pioche for a few days past. submitted to the pumping process of a Record reporter, and the following is the result : “ Captain H. S. Lubbock arrived here last Saturday evening from Silver Reef. He reports things rather dull there at present, but spoke very encouragingly of the future; in fact. so much so that he took us by surprise. He says they will ship from the Reef in 1880 from 25 to 3} per cent. more bullion than they will during the present year: The mines are all in an excellent condition at the present time—never looked better. The affairs of the Stormont Company will soon be satisfactorily arranged and work will soon start with renewed vigor. The Chrisiy Company‘s affairs are all running along smoothly. The mines are all in splendid irim. showing a good quantity of ore. The mill has been running steadily for twenty—one months. but it is the intention to close it down some time during the coming month for repairs. which it is very much in need of. The burnt district has been entirely rebuilt. and the new buildings are much more substantial than those destroyed by the fire.“ ——-—o.—o———————- "Very Like a Fraud.

Pier}; 00.. UTAH, Sept.20th. 1879. i To ”(C Editor of the Silver Reef Miner : After months of prospecting in this section of the Lord's vineyard, I desire conscientiously to assert through the columns of the MINER that the bouanzas of the Ohio mining district have been discovered and are now being put in shape for their energetic and successful operation. There have been many endeavors put forth by certain interested parties to block the wheels of prowess and put a damper on the mining interests of the )It. Baldy district. Misrepresentations as to the resources of the mines have been published. and when the falsehoods have been corrected by parties who do 'rc the facts to be made public. they are asailed in the Salt Lake Tribune as " irresponsible scribblcis " by some Duke like the Duke of Morvsvulc. \Ve desire especially to call the attention of moneyed men to the opportunities afforded for investment. The quantity and quality of the ore which late dcvelcpments have shown up. will fully justify The Chronic~heil (late the Barnacle) reports typhoid fever prevalent in Beaver.

Track-laying on the Utah Southern Exten— sion is said to be progressing at the rate of two miles pc-r day. We don‘t believe it.
