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.

      Papers for the incorporation of this place have been filed and acted on by the county judge and delivered on to the secretary of state. All that is lacking is the plat of the proposed incorporation which is being drafted now and will be forwarded in a few days. As an incorporation, Rush will be one of the richest in the state for its population as within its limits will be all the rich zinc mines of the Rush creek camp and eight concentration plants, besides other valuable mining land, that will be subject to a city tax, and will produce a large revenue. Within the next few weeks Rush, which has been the largest unincorporated city in the state, will be the largest incorporated in the north central section. As soon as the charter is issued a city election will be held and the city Dads selected. A great deal of interest is being displayed over the coming election several tickets already in the field.
