ELLENSBURG ITEMSSMITH Bros & Co. have leased their new building west of their store to John AMLIN for a saloon. Rumor has it that Mr. OGDEN, of Yakima City, contemplates opening a new drug store in SMITH Bros. new building,
and also that his wife will open a millinery store in the same building. Samuel COLTER arrived here on Tuesday's stage from Puget Sound. Beef cattle have suddenly taken a rise here, twenty-eight and thirty dollars a head being paid by buyers for
dry cows. A cleanup was made in the Tip-Top mine a few days since, which gave a yield of over fifty dollars a ton. Thos. JOHNSON of the Schafer Gold & Silver Mining Co., has returned from Peshastin and reports good prospects. He
intends putting in more machinery for crushing the ores of the mine. Tom means business. Billy MILLS has sold his livery stable to Chas. REED who will carry on the business in the future. The farmers of Kittitas Valley are busy harvesting and threshing their crops, and all report a large yield. Several German farmers are in the valley looking out locations for themselves and their friends who they expect will
arrive very soon.
