- A place fully six miles north of the town of Cripple Creek, which was for fully a year the terminus of the Midland Terminal Railway, is somewhat excited over a reported strike of mineral.

A test lot of 6,000 lbs. has been shipped, which from a number of assays taken from the vein should sample $70 per ton. Considerable prospecting is being done in the neighborhood, and there is much talk of erecting a large reduction works, there being ample water and plenty of available mill sites.

If this shipment should prove profitable the capabilities of this district will be great. The Lincoln and King of Diamonds are situated midway between Cripple Creek and Midland.
