Efforts to be Made to Organize a Mining f Company Here. A. F. Stukey, deputy county clerk, Is in receipt of another letter from his cousin, who has been in Alaska for sevens' seasons. Tne cousin writes that he has been watching, as he had promised to do. for a chance for Mr, Stukey to get a hold on some good mining property in the Alaskan gold region and he thinks he has found It. He states that certain parties who own a fine claim are willing to give Mr. Stukey a fourth interest in it if he will sink a shaft 75 feet deep and develop the property. They will agree that if the shaft demonstrates that the lode is valuable, they will sell the remaining interests for 850,000. If the property turns oat worthies", wort may bestoppedatany time. Tbe claim has been prospected and the output assays $216.30 to the too, Is shown by a certificate from the assay office. The claim lies near the Bald Eagle mine, which, although only partially developed, is held to be worth a million dollars. The ore taken from the two lodes is said to be identical. Mr. Stukey has great confidence in the judgment of bis cousin, and hence believes that the property he described oflers a fine chance for an investment. He has made up his mind to try to organize a company ia this city to take advantage of the cSer iihuamade. He will not only risk his own money in the venture, bu4 states that he is willing to go in person to the gold field and superintend the development ot the mine. In organizing a company, if some forty or fifty persons will go in, the amount to be paid in by each person will not be large. Mr. Stukey will glvP further particulars to any one who may call oa him. If anything is done, It must be done within the next thirty days. REAL ESTATE TKAN8FKBN. Reported for the Pharos bj Seth M. VelseTi Abstractor. George Wilson to Eobert M. Gibson—E i sw J sec 15.

A Discovery bj Prof. Gates, of Washington, which Answers the Question. An iDterestint Subject. "What is Life?" This question has been asked during all ages, but it bas never until now been successfully answered. Professor Elmer Ga'.es, of Washington, who has been making great experiments with the microscope, has made virtually, a double microscope: in other words, he brings the image of the first microscope OD the lens, which picture on the lens is enlarged by the second microscope so that many things which it is impossible to see with an ordinary microscope are revealed. In this way he is able to see the smallest cells of the body in an exceedingly large form. He says: "Cut a piece of protoplasm into a numoer of pieces and each piece will still be alive," thus proving that the germs ot life exist in even the minutest particle of the body. But be goes farther and says that he believes mind is life, and that mind is present in every particle of the body. This Is a new, a startling, a wonderful theory and it may lead [co a revolution on the subjects of disease, health ana happiness. It explains clearly one ;hlng and that is, why ihe mind is Irequently affected when the body is disordered, and it brings home the question of. health or disease very forcibly. It becomes plain that in order to have a clear head and a strong mind, one must have a body that is- in per THE GREAT COnHERCIAL SCHOOL OF INDIANA.

With pains In the baclc, nausea, weariness, bearing down sensations and all the symptoms Indicating a weakened condition of the kidney and urinary organs, there Is certain to be a clouding of the intellect which calls for immediate action. This action can only be successfully taken by using some great modern discovery that Is certain to put the cell tissues In perfect shape. There is such a discovery aa3 it is doing more to counteract pain and establish health than anything known to modern times. In soeak- ing of It Dr. William Edward Bobson of London, says: "I emphatically state that I have been able to give more relief and effect more cures by the use of Warner's Safe Cure than by all the medicines in tbe British pharmacopoeia." Dr. B. A. Gunn, dean of the United States Medical College, says: "I prescribe and use Warner's Safe Cure in both acute and chronic Brlght's disease and com mend it most frankly." Such statements should convince any man or woman that there is no need of farther suffering, If a prompt use is made of the remedy that is commended so highly. The New Cor. Mkt. 5th & Erie.
