Jones had presented; his case. Jt.

certain that his biibiness will tako on a

staff"of twelve employees were kept
busy until after mid-eight last Saturday
and' lots of deliveries had to go over as
it was found to be impossible to got
through the list notwithstanding thn
fact tliat four rigs were kept,going all

capability to look after tho interests of
bis customers and to constantly add to
thoir numbers by his courteous treatment and constant application to busi
nees. An element of strength in Mr.
Barclay's-busii'esa position is that thc
rentals , which will coma lo him
from the upper fl.iqr and the large store
occupied by Bleasd'ell will bo' a source
of revenue-instead of a drain in the
shape of rents to landlords. The build,

Again   tho Ftimilinr Cry —Fire.
This morning at 2:30 lire was discovered in the large boarding house
occupied by Mr., Robert Silverwood,
situated on CJeinmcl street near the Coal
Co. oflicCs. The boarders ^ere aroused hy the suffocating sensation produced hy the smoke from tlie fire which
originated in the kitchen near the flue.
Tlie fire was seen by'Mr. King, night
watchman at'the Coal Co, oflkes; and
the alarm sounded. °
• Mr. King and Mr. ,ToJd -were thc
first to arrive., "Mr. Todd with the
assistance of King got 'llie lire hose
belonging to the company over the
fence very soon after the alarm was
given. -' The chemical engine was soon
on the ground, and a hose line from the
laid." Tlie lire - being so" near the lire
hall-enabled the fir^t comers to get
water and the' chemical it! work in a
very few 'moments so thai what looked
like the beginning of 'another ' serious
conflagration was, conquered IJetore'il
gained much head wny. .-• ' -""
Chief Tuttle. arrived on the scejie
before the lire was extinguished making
good lime for ji sick man who had so
far to go, Tills shows that if we" had'
awell drilled,' well equipped lire -brigade wilh furnished quarters in'the tire
hall that'there is lots of nood material
for such a force and that if wu lind hud
this kind of a brigiide thc lire in the
Free Press block aud the one in bl<>c«
2t could have been confined to ihe

It is unnecessary lo panii.uliiri/e as to
those who did good work last night,
there uru lols ol good workers, all lhat
is lacking is organization nnd drill',
We can not refrain Irom once more
pointing out tlie fact that our city
council having the ui'iehincrvol'the liitt
at their disposal have utterly failed' its to
their duty in providing for a brigade.
Last night found lhc lire hall empty
excepting Mr.' McLennan find"' no

For dciehniuing lhc metal parts of
minerals lhe "nieldometi'i-" is mosl
convenient. This instrument consists
essentially of a strip of platinum loil,
•.ipon which small fragments of mineral
are laid. The platinum is gradually
heated by lhe passage of an electr'u-
current", until the mineral melts; the
temper:iture of llie foil being obtained
by a calculation based upon the resistance of the platinum, the observed
strength of tbe current, and the rate at
which heat is radiated from tlie foil, as
determined by careful observations.
This method is especially useful in minerals that can be had " only in small
fragments.   ,
There are   three   important  metals
that do not occur native,   namely   iir,
zinc"and nickel.    Iron occurs native in
infinitesimal   quantities.     Native  lead
is a decided rarity.,   Quicksilver occurs
native in small quantity.    Native   zinc
.was. reported from Georgia years ago,
native tin was   reported   occurring   in
Siberian   gold   placers,   native,- nickel
was supposed to  hlive   been   found in
Caledonia.    Investigation proved these
discoveries   untrue.      Nature   in   her

Mammoth cave,' Kentucky, is   located in    lldmorison   country,   85  miles
southwest of Louisville, Ivy.    Its real
diameter, is about ten .miles,   while  to
date fully  100'.t-a'-Vs of "passageways
have been,explored- including avenues,
chambers, pits, doii.cs.and rivers. -Tlie
main cave is three miles long, running
in width from forty to 175 feet, and   in
height from 40 to"i2S.'feet.    Its greatest hall or dome   i-»   known   as   Chief
City, or t   «pie, ah    is ah  oval  room
541 feet long, 287 feet wide,'   and 125
feet high.   The s   called star chamber
mimics lhe starry heavens,   because of
its •> lofty' calling, composed -of   black
oxide of manganese.flecked with; crystals of gypsum.    The cavern exists in
live successive tiers, through which   al
various   points   shafts  have been  cut,
that are known as pits or domes.    The
largest are the bottomless   pit,   Gorins
dome, the  Mammoth   dome   and  the
Miielstrom, their average, depth being
100  leet. .   Oval" depressions,   locally
known.sis sink holes,,> drain  through
the pits and chasms and  for *i. subter
raneati lakes and streams   that  finally
find   an   outlet   to    the    neighboring-
Green river.    The largest of the rivers
is the Kcho river, a couple.of miles  in
length.    Beyond  what ,<is   known   as
River, Hall,   long    avenues    extend,
which are most beautifully lined with
gypsum crystals.     A   feature   of, the
cave is that.even to the deepest pits the
atmosphere   is   both   chemically .'and
optically pure all the year around.

Close upon 5,000,000 persons', were
employed in mining and quarrying iii
the world in 1903. ' It is estimated that
more than half were engaged in mining coal alone; Great Britain employing over ihree-quarters of'a million,
the United States and Germany over
half a million each, France 167,000;
Beiguim 139,000; Austria 121,000, and
India 86,000. The world's production,
of coal in 1903'was 881,000,000 metric
tons, valued at more than 1,550,000,-
000: Of this quantity the United
States contributed 318,000,000 tons, or
about 36 per cent.
Marbles are'rounded balls of broken
clay, marble, agate and, other mineral
substances, ln Saxony, where' are
made millions of those playthings, the
mineral most used is a - hard, calcareous stone, that is first broken up into
square blocks with a hammer. These
are then thrown tod or more > together
into a mill that is constructed of a sta-
tionary flat slab of stone, with a num*
ber of concentric, furrows upon its face.
Over this a block of rock.of the same
diameter, partially. resting upon the
small stones, is kept revolving, 'while
water flows upon-lhe atone'slab. ^Jn
15 minutes the marbles are worn completely round, and arc ready * for marr
ket. An'v'-estai-iiishincntwith three
mills will turn out -60,000 marbles - in
•a week. Agates are made into marbles at Oberstein. Germany, by first
chipping the pieces neai-4y round with
a hammer, and then wearing them
down upon the face of a large grindstone.
