Gogebic Iron Spirit (Newspaper) - September 12, 1891, Bessemer, Michigan VOL. 5. The Leading Local Paper. LESS EM EK, MICH., SAT UK DAY, KE; = . I'-, lo!)!. COUNTY SEAT OF GOGEBIC COUNTY. Tho Best Advert oil Medium. I I tie First Stone Flued in Position or v the Bow Lock at the -Sod. A large crowd of our citizens anti many strangers assembled at tint now lock yesterday at 3 o’clock to witness the'laying of the corner atonal tho Announcement having been made • »me days previous that it would then be placed in position. Everything was I ti readiness for the event, the stone linv-lngjioen appropriately inscribed. After placing many mementoes of the occasion in tlie inclosure, the corner stone of the groute-t lorn; in* t lie world was laid in place. Afte.r tlioso massive walls shall have crumbled away. in tho egos to come, or like the old lock, shall have been removed to make room for a still larger one, and the objects wrhich were so carefully placed ’neath the stone once more exposed to the gaze of human eyes, who eau tell wit Ii what wonder or amazement they will be greeted? The commencing of the stone work of the new locks at this early date is ti source of surprise and can only be explained by the hustling abilities of the gentlemanly contractors, Messrs. I luges Bros. & Hangs. They have already proven their competency to fullfil their contract with the government in more than a satisfactory manner. They have one of the largest and best plants, embracing the most improved machinery and methods, ever constructed for a work of the kind, and xviii brush the job w ithin he specified time or sooner. —Soo Democrat.

Tho Ironwood papers are hot under the collar over the telephone service of that city. We know of one Ironwood editor whose voice would do to tile ■taws, aud all he would have to do to lie heard all over the city is to open fin* door. Hardly see why he should kick. The Hurley Tribune says tile schools of that burg have been a st Midi ug disgrace long enough.

SPIRIT RA PPI NGS. Court week has brought its usual quota of transients to our city. Otto Zacliow was called lo Appl ton, by the sad news of his father’s death. Rani Gerhardt, of Colorado Springs, Col., is a guest of Bessemer relatives. E. A. Moas, of Humboldt, was a Bessemer visitor, Sunday. Win. A. Parker, Marquette, looked us over Tuesday. P. B.

Oil which will pass the present test xviii flash at 95 degrees so that the test is reduced 25 degrees. Of eour-e the oil companies xviii find no fault, as the Michigan oil will now be le-s refined and contain more gas. It will burn more rapidly, but it xviii not make difference enough in the quality of the light to compensate for tho auditiouiil danger. The Traverse City Eagle, from which the above is taken, further adds: Under the old law tho oil was safe, while now it is absolutely dangerous, and all who use it .should handle it with care.
