A shaft b ' by-9H is down forty feet, on a twenty-two-foot east and west view-on Cornucopia No. 1 and will reach the fifty-foot level in a few days when the company will crosscut a north and south view intersection.. The north and south view appeared unexpectedly in the west side of the shaft at fifteen feet depth and. presents excellent possibilities, being characteristic, and carrying values where encountered. The width of this view is thought to be about twenty feet from outcrop Indications on the mountain, discovered after the' view appeared In the shaft.

There is a market for real estate opening such as there has not been for several years, uhd there is a full realization upon the partir the buying publjc that property values tire lower today than they will ba a year from now. This has caused owners of well-developed tracts to place these properties upon the market and attractive Offerings at the prevailing low market rates are being made, much to the advantage of the buying public. It Is realized that with the Increase In the cost of materials pd labor, that the development of property has increased in cost. To lay out a new tract, install streets and sewers and sidewalks ftnd the usual Improvements necessary to the development of city property costs twice aa much today us it did a few-years ago.
