A complete stone sawing plant is being installed at the Burke quarry, near Hot Springs. It is expected that it will be put together and ready to start up within thirty days. It will be operated by steam, and the Elk-horn company is at present puttir.g water in for its use. Saws are in operation at quarries in other parts of the country, but this is the first stone sawing machinery ever brought to the Black Hills. Gang saws are used, there being six saws in a gang, and where all the saws of a set are at work the slabs are a foot thick. When it is desired to cut a larger slab a saw is taken out. The paws are run gig-fashion, and are twelve feet long. The stone is on a solid bed. and the saws work down upon it. It is decidedly injpra ticable to cut. stone by hand at. this age. With tli" saws a stone may be cut to any si '' desired riuht at the quarry, and whci it is loaded on the cars it U ready t lie pla I'd in the position int'iidMl f.r it. Besides being much more rap: 1 than hand cutting, it is a!, o nn ti!ii:'oi in, and a better surface is obtained.

M ' I s They Have Got to Go. PROSPECTING IN THE BEAR GULCH COUNTRY. Joseph Schuler of Spearfish, is in the Bear gulch mining distiict developing some ground that he owns in that part of the Hills. He is located on Sand creek, near Welcome, two or three miles over the Wyoming line, where lie says a large amount of work is going on. He is not far from where A. 1). Ti-knor found the rich ore, over which there was considerable discussion during the past fall. .1. T. J,.

Nk- I,, ,?s. was claimed that he seldom made a mistake. When Mr. Faulkes purchased tho property at Keystone the doctor told him whero to start his shaft and described the contour of the ground as accurately as ho could have done had he studied tho surface for months. He drew a plan of what would be found upon sinking, and development has shown that he was not mistaken. A shaft la 135 feet deep on the ground, and 350 feet of tunneling haa been done. This work has been done on a ledge, from which some good assays have been obtained. Editor Faulkes is a philanthropist, and he says he has not gone into the mining business because ho wants money or for any individual purpose, but says if his plans prove of value that he intends to build a hospital at Cedar Rapids, Iowa, where poor crippled children may come from all parts of tho United States and be treated free of charge. Prominent railroad men have entered into an agreement with him to provide free transportation to these patients, if the plan carries thru. Mr. Faulkes has been a cripple himself for a great many years, and his sympathies go out to others In distress. Faulke does not need money. He is Independent as far as worldly goods will go, for he has been a money maker ever since be went into the newspaper business. Other newspaper men have learned that he not only has the wit to make and save money, but the wisdom to enjoy it. With all his energy he i3 TALK OF A RAILROAD TO THE GRAND JUNCTION. There Is talk of a railroad being tuilt to the Grand Junction mine, near Custer. Tho plan In contemplation by the Burlington is to leave the main line at or near Oreville, this side of Custer and run up Tenderfoot gulch to the Grand Junction, which la about two miles from the main line. In connection with this plan there la talk of extending the line so as to take in the whole belt, coming down French creek to Custer, making about eight mllea ef track. Such a road would be perfectly feasible, and would have good trackage all the way. It would be taking in the mining country about the heads of Tenderfoot and adjacent gulches, and all that rich country Immediately west of the town of Custer, which Is being rapidly developed. With tho promised consummation of the deal for tho Grand Junction mine there Is talk of a mill to treat the ore. Water could be secured sufficient to run a 200-stamp mill by taking It from Springs creek, and negotiations are under way for a ranch on the creek that carries with it a water right. If this plan 1b carried out, and there is every reason to believe it will be, It will offer every Inducement for a road to build in. There is a section of country tributary to the Grand Junction that, according to the opinions of tho best mining men who have examined it, will some day contain a number of rich mines.

Henry Keets and Frank Bryant Will Leave in a Few Days for the Soutii. Henry Keets and Frank Bryant of Spearfish, will spend part of the winter in Cuba, where they are interested in a large tract of land and a hemp mill. Mr. Keets will leave for the east tomorrow, and will lie overtaken at New York City by Mr. Bryant, who intends to leave the Hills January 6. They will engage passage on one of the. steamship lines from New York to Nuevitas, Cuba, near where tneir possessions lie. Mr. Brandt, formerly of Lead, the man with whom they are interested In the enterprise, is at Nuevitas now and has completed a large mill on the land. "You don't think we handle hemp like we handle ore. do you?" said Mr. Brypnt yesterday in answer to a question a ; to the process of treating the product, and as to the size of their mill. "Well, the truth Is that I don't know mie h about it myself," he continued, "except that it goes thru a kind of shedding process at the mill and is then baled .ready for shipment, Yr.

One well known' mining man has traced the Grand Junction ledge for a distance of eight or ten miles. Wherever prospecting has been carried on systematically and persistently and withproper judgment good results have been obtained on this belt, and a Colorado mining man, N. Acton, of Colorado Springs, who was shown thru the district a few days ago, was amazed that such a rich region should have been left so long in an undeveloped state. o HE LOCATES MINES BY SECOND SIGHT. Dr. C. F. Harrington, a cla'.i voyaut physician, for whom It was claimed that he had remarkable success in locating mines by second sight, is dead. It was thru his advice that the "Get There Ell" mine .near Keystone was sold a number of years ago to Editor faulkes of the Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Gazette. The mine is now called the Tykoon, and a company has been organized upon it, the stock being held by sv number of Iowa men. Dr. Harrington'! home was at Madison, Wisconsin, and he died at San Diego, California.

"Yes. it will be a good trip, but I must confess that I am not as enthusiastic as I might be about going, now that the t!me Is pretty nearly here. I am leaving my folks a long way behind, and things of that kind are always rather worrying." A double set or rolls has been received in Deadwood for the Detroit & Deadwood company's cyanide plant, on Annie creek. A new crusher is expected to arrive within a few days, and as soon as it comes the machinery will all be taken out to the plant at once, and be set up. This machinery is to take the place of the old rolls and crusher, which were taken out several weeks ago, because of their battered condition. The cyanide plant has been closed down since it was decided to discard them, but it will be running again now within a few days. J. J. Feld- Mineral Water. Ginger Champagne. Sarsaparilla.
