(This was taken from a very dark microfilm)
MINERS and prospectors who have not already done so, should at once commence the assessment work on their claims to comply with the U. S.
mining laws. Only a few weeks more remain in which to do the work. It is ???list to put off this necessary duty until the last minute
and perhaps jeopardize important interests. If work on the claims is not commenced on or before January the 1st, 1889, they are liable
to forfeiture and relocation.

CLE ELUM ITEMS

The people of Cle Elum expect lively times within the next two years and are putting everything in order for the rush. There has been a good deal of development work done on iron mines in this vicinity this fall, and they are showing up immense bodies
of ore. There has been some building activity here this season, the principal buildings being the large store of Thos. JOHNSON and the new
brick of Walter REED's. The latter is the first brick building constructed in the place. The brick, which was made here, is of excellent
quality. Squire GAMBLE's addition to Cle Elum will build up during the next two years. The Squire is determined to give every man who will
improve his property a fair chance. Lots can be had in this valuable addition for $125...
