SEVERAL YEARS AGO. 0 west. NEEDED IMPROVEMENT. The Continental Alta's President Projecting a Railroad Uf Little Cottonwood. It was a red letter day In the history of Utah when Henry M. Crowther took up his residence here. It was also a great day for the Alta mining district when he decided to turn his attention to the ground now known as the Continental Alta. Since that time, over three years ago, he has bent all his energies In the direction of developing the camp, and has been the means of bringing many thousands of dollars into the state. The latest of his enterprises Is to project the building of a railroad up the canyon to Alta. In the old days, when the camp was pouring out its wealth of carbonate ores to the valley smelters a tramway was operated to the camp. Large portions of the trackage of this old tram are still in tact. The great slump In the price of metals In the early nineties, which caused the abandonment of the mines led to the discontinuance of its use. The land slides and avalanches of succeeding winters tore great gaps into the road and rendered it useless as a means of communication between the mountain camp and the valley. Today with the great Columbus Consolidated, and other mines besides that of the Continental Alta pouring out their ores, and the constant development of new mines adding their quota to the output of the old producers, a railroad has become a necessity. None are quicker to grasp a situation than Mr. Crowther, and he is now engaged in financing the scheme. The road will be one of great difficulty, frara an engineering standpoint, to construct. The grades are in many places too great to admit of the use of g the ordinary locomotive engine, and a cog wheel will have to be resorted to. Still, the enterprise is not impossible by any means, and with its projectors known ability and push there Is no question but that it will be ri accomplished fact in the near future. That the enterprise will be a paying one there can be no question. Today, with all the available teams m commission hauling ore, the output of the mines is circumscribed and many tons of ore are being piled upon the dumps or stored in bins and drifts for the lack of the means of transportation. This conjested condition will be agravated as the months go by. The best hopes of all the miners and the entire people go with Mr. Crowther in his endeavors In the direction of this most needed Improvement. AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE OF UTAH.

Though only five years old, (he Columbus Con. has produced over 8500,-00worth of ore, and Is now sending In the neighborhood of 1,800 tons to the smelters a month. Though the ores of the Columbus are In the main high grade, there Is In the upper workings of the mine an enormous tonnage of milling ore. This Is Increased as development Is pushed. Enough, however, are already uncovered to keep the mill running an Indefinite period to Its full capacity. These concentrates, when placed upon the market, sell for more than enough to pay all the running expenses of the mine. When It is understood that there Is an average of 125 men employed In and around the mine, not to mention the fifty teams and teamsters hauling the ore to the sampler, the value of this output Is at once seen. Not only have the Jacobson boys enriched themselves by opening the they have done more. They have proven the value of management In mining, and have been the means of rejuvenating Alta mining district. The camp was to all intents and purposes dead when they entered It and It now promises to be one of the great mining districts of MONSTER ENTERPRISE. Among the great mines of the state the Continental Alta may safely be placed. It Is a mine with a history, both past and present Its future is also assured. When the camp was in the heyday of its earlier productiveness the ground under the name of the Lavlna and Grizzly groups was pouring out its metallic wealth in a continuous stream and enriching its Then owners by thousands monthly. came the great slump in the price of metals and the property became inactive until aroused to life by the genius of Henry M. Crowther. The mine is situated at the extreme head of the Little Cottonwood canthe great Park yon and overlooks City district as well as that of Big Cottonwood, which Matter is even now taking a commanding position among the mining districts of the state. The property consists of many mining claims, all of which are highly mineralized and are intersected by immense Assures bearing great bodies of ore. The great vein along which are situated the Columbus Con., the Emma, Alta Continental, City Rocks and other big mines of the district, traverses the territory and innumerable cross fissures as well as contiguous veins make the mountain one of ore. These ore bearing channels have only been explored as yet above the sulphide zone.- - This has been accomplished by the means of tunnels, shafts and drifts until the upper portion of the mine is one complete netof ' underground channels. work Though many of these were made under the old regime, the ore bodies they exposed were not in any manner depleted. In fact only the very highest grade of the carbonates were sent to the smelters, leaving the drifts in many instances filled with ore which under improved methods of treating and smelting, proves to be pay rock of high value. Besides this, the mine contained vast bodies, even in the old workings, of milling ore, which is now being treated and (Continued In Our Next.) REMEMBER.

She was a or she would have known that In this very genteel boarding house, select as were its boarders, the star boarder was an English baronet, and that it was a feature of honor accorded him that dinner was never fairly commenced before his arrival at the table. The baronet, to do him justice, was extremely punctual where replenishing the inner man was concerned. But on this particular evening he was not In his accustomed place, and people shuffled and toyed with rings, and tried to appear not to be waiting, till the newlittle comer, a vivacious, fresh-tinte- d lady, a little turned 40, inquired of her near neighbor the cause of delay. But at that moment the baronet appeared, (walking slowly, a heavy cloud on his brow. He took his seat by the side of Miss Brown, the lady of the establishment, presiding at the head of the table. He stooped and whispered to her in portentlous tones. "Can eat no dinner! she answered aloud in alarmed accents. "Nothing, nothing, said the star boarder, unless," with a melancholy wave of his hand, "a spoonful, just a spoonful of the soup. No more, not a drop more, as in obedience to his request the soup ladle descended to his plate. "I have not missed taking them for 15 years, and I dare not attempt anything like a full meal without their aid. Until the mail arrives morning I am a starving man," and mournfully he applied himself to the soup placed before him. That dispatched, he rose, and with a muttered apology left the apartment for the drawing room. . At his departure Miss Brown gave The star boarder could explanation. eat no dinner because hi3 digestive pills the last two he possessed till the morning mail brought a fresh supply had disappeared from the box. The pill box was still standing on the mantelpiece, but the pills, so the servant reported who had been sent to fetch them, were gone. Does he think the servant swallowed them?" "I dont know," answered Miss Brown, absently, too anxious for the effect upon her permanent boarder to join In the general titter around the table; "but he says he shall dismiss him at once for his carelessness." "What Is the number of the baronets room?" The newcomer asked the question with sharp abruptness. "No. 15." "Then It is next to mine. The lady looked for a moment attentively at her plate, then, after the baronets example, rising, with murmured apologies, quitted the table and the room. A minute later found her by the star boarders chair. "Are you quite sure? Perhaps there is some mistake. Your servant might have overlooked them. May he Just give one more look? Divided between surprise at her interference and her pertinacity, the bars, onet, turning, rang the bell near him and directed his servant to look once more. The man obeyed. He returned, perplexity on his face, with the pill box and two Innocent-lookin- g pills therein. "There, I told you so! said the little lady, with & clh.p of her small white hands. The star hoarders first sensation was joy. "Madam, he said, with a studied bow, "you have the witchery of your sex. But his brow clouded. Glancing Your caretowards his lessness is unpardonable. I shall dismiss you from my service. You might have cost me the loss of He rose hastily and, courtesy reminding him, offered his arm to his benefactress. The two returned to the dining room. Forgive the noor man." said the lady as they went "No, madam; such carelessness Is too culpable." new-com- er man-serva- "And you are feeling quite well this It was the morning after, morning? and the lady whose witchery had secured the baronet his dinner leaned over his chair. Quite, madam, he replied gallantly, owing to your cleverness. I hav not had & dinner Buit me so well or enjoyed so perfect a nights rest for a long while. Then you will not be so stern tot? wards your But the star boarder shook his head. Such culpable carelessness, madam." The lady hesitated. Could you keep a secret? He bowed solemnly. Then I will tell you something. My room joins yours; they are much alike. I, too, take pills before dinner, and I went by mistake into your room and took two pills. Afterwards I slipped up and placed two of mine In your box. I feared to tell you lest they should not suit you; but you see they have acted admirably. Pray, say you forgiv me. The baronets politeness was taxed. Madam, he said, the effects have been too happy for resentment Also it follows my servant is absolved from blame. There was a deeper tint In the ladys cheek, tut her eyes were laughing. Gould you keep another secret? He laid his hand on his heart Faith fully. Then she rose as though prepared to make quick exit after speaking. It is nothing so very serious; only the pills jou took last night were rheumatism pills; and I am so glad they suit' d you." man-servan- One Would Imagine, Proceedings, Rather Trying to tho Nerves of a Party of Weatern Tourists.

We advanced until we were within twenty paces of the warriors.
