This is an old yellowed brittle copy of a newspaper from the Mining era of Marion Co. It was sent to me by John Headrick. He tells me that he found it in his father's old papers. Many thanks to John for sharing this with us. I knew that some of the mining towns published newspapers but this is the first copy I've ever seen.
The photos in this newspaper are very dim. I've done the best I can with them.
Page 6 - Column 1
Satire and Otherwise:
Dr. Gray reports Oscar McCarty suffering from the hookworm disease. Oscar finds himself in physical condition which will not permit him to put in more than 19 hours a day. He is much worried over his ill health.
Public Sentiment seems to demand that the new town make proper provision for the purchase of a suitable park for the women and children. The space opposite the Silver Hollow office is unoccupied and the many loafers who sit like McCawber, "waiting for something to turn up," favor the acquisition of the ground. Indications point to this being turned down, however, for the reason that these gentlemen see no reason for the children being there.
Wanted, correspondence with young lady. Object, matrimony. Good looks not absolutely essential, but positively must have a good disposition and culinary accomplishments, with thorough knowledge of concocting and cooking tortillas, frijoles, tameles, chili, perritos and gatitous. Our advertiser is a young man 30 years old; rich, of striking appearance, and speaks through an almost imperceptible moustache. He has a good appetite, especially for highly spiced foods and literature. Conduct negotiations through the Bugle.
