Tbe search for material ended, tlio
work of construction may begin. Two
duplicato copies of tbo cartoon are lirst
made. One operation suffices to accomplish this. Tho cartoon is laid on a large
table, and beneath it aro two sheets of
similar paper and two sheets of ordinary
black transfer paper arranged alter
nately. By passing a small revolving
wheel over tbo outlines of tho cartoon
the tracings are quickly and accurately
mado. Each space is then numbered
correspondingly on both tracings, and
one of them is cut up to make patterns
for tbo glass cutter. An ingenious dis
seating instrument is used for this pur
poso. It consists of a pair of double
edged shears, wbicb, In cutting, removes
a strip of paper just tbo width of tbe
lead which will separate tho fragments
of glass whon tbey aro finally bound to
gether. in this way each pattern is precisely the size required. When tlio glass
is ready to bo put together in tho window thero is very Uttlo coaxing to be
dono to get It into place.
Tho picturo window lias now reached
tbo most critical stage in Us develop
ment. Tbe paper patterns are to find
suitable counterparts in glass, and upou
the nicety with which this substitution
is accomplished depends tbo etrect of the
entire work. Nothing Is loft undone tbat
will assist tbo glass cutter in forming
correct color judgments. Throughout
llie entire process, and hero particularly
the work progresses under precisely thorn
conditions that aro best calculated li

A sheet of plain glass the size of tin

Charles Rondo*. Character.
This volumo of "Readiuna" is full ol
excellent material for an estimation of
tho character of Chnrlos Reads. His
catholicity of feeling, his hatred of cant,
his high senso of justice, his sympathy
with the suffering and poor, are shown
from first to last in bis writings aa well
as in his life. What would havo struck
you next if you had known him well,
was tbo difference between Mr. Reade at
homo and Mr. Rendu in print. Call upon
him. Ho would receive you with the
gentleness of a saint (not that I pretend
over to havo known a saint, but you will
appreciate tbo simile), talk to you witb
singular modesty, listen to you with* the
greatest respect, ask you to dinner, or to
tako a cup of tea as ono wdio receives a
favor by yourncccplaiicc, nnd yotl would
havo gono away thinking of him as III
mildest, sweetest, most long sulTerii,
gentleman you had ever met. But givi
bim n grievance, tamper with his right
tread on his moral corns, then put a pen
in his hand, and you would find him a
writer of thoughts that breatho, of word:
that burn indeed. Not, my friends, thut
I ever experienced his wrath. On tin
contrary, ho was always kind and sym
pathetic toward inc. Iio took me b\

picturo was painted for another church,
from which it was removed in 1707 by
tho French, who ultimately sent it to tho
Vatican. It may interest somo of my
readers to know, further, that tho picture stolen from tho Church of San Pietro, at Perugia, was a reduced, though
extremely beautiful, copy of tho same
"Entombment" hy Sassoferrato. Tb •

Editor Courier:--Sik,—Alberni is
(I was going to say amused) generally
"knocked out" over a letter which recently appeared in the Victoria Times for
May 81st, beaded "Hobson and Alberni."
Of course it is a well-known tact tbat
there are people who are continually
"agin the government," but when the
"agin" takes the form of the letter to
which 1 refer, it is high time to''chip in,"
otherwise much harm may be done.
Doubtless many of our settlers got badly
"sold" over the "Intended" visit of
"Honest John," as I. C. Cf. says in his
letter; but surely he forgets that he commenced his epistle by slating the intended political visit of the
Provincial Secretary wnsaltnost unnoticed
by the Alberni public who appeared to
care little whether tbe Hon.   John  came
to Alberni or went elsewhere; a little
farther on he says that those who were
so badly "sold" threatened to bring an
action for damages against the hon.
gentleman. However I venture to think
tbnt we shall manage to survive Mr.
Robson's absence, distressing though it
may be. though 1 confess we should like
to have put'two or throe pointed questions
to the hon. gentleman had he ventured to
put in an appearance; such as. for in-
stunee, "Does the Govern ment intend to
fulfil their reiterated promise to give ns
additional st, ain-boat service'.'" This I
can at least say for mv fellow seniors of
Alberni, ihey will be very much pleased
to see Mr. Robson whenever he can spare
the time to pay us a flying visit.
In tin' meantime Mr. Editor wi must
manage to get along as besi we may.
though wi'can't help thlnklnc and for
that matter saying—that if the government forgets our very existence, it lakes
cnipnol lo forget the collection of taxes.

Why 11 Is Unjust to Judge il Han't Life By
lis [exceptions.
A single brick, if it be an exeeption-
I al brick, is not "afair test of the wholo
Structure." This is true whether the
brick is far above or far below thc
average. Because a man has once in
his lifo sunk down below his true
oharaoter, if he has risen again never
more to sink, it is not fair to sneeringly
single out that blemish as a specimen
of his manhood; and because a man
has risen onco in his life to extraordinary lofty achievement, if be has
fallen buck to his own level never
more to rise, it is not fair to refer with
pride to that achievement as a specimen of his strength. While it is true
that n man is no stronger than his
weakest point, when that point is involved in the testing, yet that weakest
poinl may bo now entirely eliminated
from his oharaoter, leaving behind
nothing but tbo ugly surface-blemish
on bis record: and while it is
true thai what we have dono onee we
eun generally do again, yet if, as a
matter of fact, we have never succeeded in doing it again, it is not fair
to credit ourselves with a present
ability which does not iu reality appear to exist. To ferret out past mistakes und fasten them on another's
oharaoter as its label, or to herald an
isolated past achievement as a sample
of our present power, Is to reverse lhe
first principle of truth, und make the
exception the rule. How much barm
und injustice are done by such unsound
judgment! To bo fair, and to make
legitimate deductions, one must judge
a character, it principle, u tendency, at
lis normal best, not from the highly
forced single success —still loss from
its poorest illustrations.—S. 8. Times.
Jokes to  Let By the Hour.
"Jokes to Let" is a sigti that may be
read on some office door before long if
a young man who thinks he lias got an
inspiration carries out his threat. He
revealed his scheme one night recently
I o n person whom he happened to
meet. Said be: "1 have got an idea
that is going to make my fortune, und
a big one nt that. I am going to start
a joke shop and a funny story factory.
You see. 1 am something of a hand at
making jokes myself, and I can hire
iwo or three others to get up funny
stories for tne. Then I intend lo advert ise for patrons, und I'll get. them
easy enough. There arc plenty of
young men who liko to appear clover,
when they really ure no more clever
iban a cow, Wben they go out in
company with a party of their fellows
hey want to say something smart or
toll a story thai will delight the girls.
Now to remedy the inability of most
young mon to do this is a long felt
want. This is just what 1 propose to
Bll. I will simply contract to allow
I belli lo use Iho jokes or stories, one,
twice or three times, or us often as
they care lo pay for il. In fact I will
lent I hem my jokes. If they violate
my eonlidenee I will expose Ihem; that
is, if I can Hnd them out. I tell you.

still "believed by the heads of the depart
ment"—a class of men—these last we
think—not over credulous as a rule. We
have been led into making the (ore-going
remarks by a statement in a New York
paper to the effect that numbers of tbe
leading Statesmen of Great Britain have
been converted to a belief in the doctrine
expounded by Hknrv George. This
statement  is bucked bv no shadow   oi
quite   unable   Io
proof, so that we are
judge of its veracity or otherwise
failing such proof, we decline to tttk
statement without the proverbial
of salt.    The reason for our hesitation in
believing tbnt''British statesmen"  hold
the view with which they are credited,
is that we ourselves have seen no reliable
authority given in their own press as to
such tenets becoming a part of the mental
equipment of those who bold the reins in
us appeared to regard as almost an
accomplished fact. Mi. Sutherland
proudly refers to the fact that letters now
occupy but 14 days between Charing
Cross and Bombay, lie went on to say
tbat comparisons were sometimes made
between the company's business and the
carriage of the American mails from
Queenstown to New York. The distance
occupied by that journey is something
like -.SOO miles. Tho delivery of a I', it
0. mail embracing China, Japan, and the
two sides of   India   required a journey
' altogether of 24,000 miles
The porlor-
. niauces of the company's ships were
the I short of feats such as the City of Paris
rain I accomplished lately, but if the passenger
trade, the factor which produced speed,
to India and the Fast ever attained anything like half the proportions of tne
American passenger trade tbey would
be happy to build ships to abreviate the
distance by three days—the difference
between the passage of the Cilv of Paris
and tbe delivery of the mails in India in
14 days from England.

A writer iii the Englishman published
in Calcutta, tells the following amusing
Story; "I have beard of rather a ludicrous
incident which happened at a lawn-tennis
party within a ten miles ratlins of Government House. One of the gentlemen
of the party was u young mart rather
proud of his legs, and the better to call
attention thereto, be had invested in a
brilliant pair of scarlet silk garters, which
were ostentatiously displayed al the
bottom of bis knicker-bockers. I .tiring a
game he fancied that one of bis cherished
ornaments had como of!', as be saw a
I somewhat similar article of apparel on
tlie ground close to him, so be picked ii
up and put it into his pocket, not notic-
!iug an angry look on the fine of his
the partner, who happened to be a married
| woman.   Very shortly after, beforo tho
isctl to
to the
house, the young gentleman retiring into
lhe refreshment tent. Arrived there,
und as usual, looking down at bis legs,
he discovered both bis own bright orna-
lentB in their proper place, and began to
where lhe oilier one could have
come from. Nothing further would probably have happened had not the young
man, with the vanity of youth, a few
days afterwards boasted to some of his
friends of h\sbonneifortunet,at the same
lime hinting rather too plainly the name
of tbe lady to whom il belonged.
Nothing remains a secret long in India,
especially 'f tbere is a spice of scandal attached to it, and consequently the report
about bis wile reached the husband's
ears. Arming himself with a horsewhip
the husband waited upon the young man
who thought that discretion was the better part of valor, stammered out bis explanation, wrote a humble apology to
the lady, dictated by the husband, and
bad to surrender his valued treasure.
The young man who is well known in
Anglo-Indian Boclety now goes among his

Keep Cool nnd Mvu Long.
A calm, cool, temperament is doubtless an
aid to a long life. It is tho people who are
easiest troubled andoftenest excited who wear
out first. Bulwer, tn one of his novels, makes
tho cynical remark that two things aro essential to tbo greatest longevity—a good digestion nnd a bad heart. This has been applied
often to old men who were not sympathetic
in their temperament. It docs not follow,
however, that becauso men are imperturbable
in manners thoy aro heart less—much less than
they have bad hearts. Men may bo actively
wicked us well as apparently indifferent on
tho subject of righteousness. When a man
lives to a great ago tho presumption is that
ho has taken good care of himself. Some aro
more scrupulous to do this than others, and
some find tho tusk much easier than do the
most of their fellows.—Boston Herald,

The Ullnd Men"-. Cafe.
Some years ago in Paris there was ;t
small restaurant, known as tho Blind
Men's cafe, much frequented by the
blind, where an orchestra of blind musicians performed for tho amusement of
patrons. One extremely dark night in
winter, when a thick fog had fallen upon
Paris—so thick that no one could seo his
way, nor so much as distinguish a street
lamp ten feet away, and when policemen, carrying torches, here and thero
assisted sofne groping foot passenger to
find his course—a gentleman, seeing another man walking along confidently
and boldly, ventured to say to him.
"Sir, will you pleaso tell mo where
you are going?"
"To the Palais Royal," said tho gentleman, who was walking witb such suro
"And how do you find your way so
"Oli, never mind; 1 never get lost. Do
you wish to follow me?"
"Thank you,"
So the first gentleman caught hold of
tbo pocket of tbe other's overcoat and
started after him. Not a thing could ho
descry, but bis companion marched confidently along. At length tho two arrived
under the familiar arches of tbe Rue de
"Wo arc safo now," exclaimed the gentleman wbo had been led; "and may I
thank you for giving mo the advantage
of your wonderful eyesight?''
"Yes, but you must not detain me.

The man was perfectly blind. The

Mourning for Pets.

mourning for them when tho died. And how

It takes about two-fiftlls of ti second to
call to mind llio country in which a well
known town is situated or tho language
In which a familiar author wrote, We
can think of the name of the next month
In half the lime wc need to think of tho
namo of last month. It takes on tho
average of one-third ofa second to add
numbers containing one digit and half a
second lo multiply them, Such experiments give us considerable insight into
tho mind.
Those used lo reckoning can add two
to three in less timo than others; those
familiar with literature can remember
more quickly than others that Shakespeare wrote "Hamlet." It takes longer
to mention a nionllt when a season has
been given than to sny to what month a
Beason belongs.
Tho tinto taken up in choosing a mo-
lion, the "will time," can bo measured
as well as the time taken up in perceiving. If I do not know whicli of two colored lights is to be presented, and must
lift my right hand if it bo red and my
left if it bo blue, I need about one-thirteenth of a second to initiato tho correct

and tu a color one-third of a second.
A letter can bo seen more quickly than
a word, but we nro so used to reading
aloud that tlio process has become quito
automatic, and a word can bo read with
greater easo and in less timo than a letter
can bo named. Tho samo experiments

Abovo all other characteristics, how-
over, of Peking one thing stands out iu
horriblo prominence, and 1 hnvo put this
off to the last. Not to mention it would
bo to willfully omit tho most striking
color of tho picture. I mean its filth. It
is tho most horribly and indescribably
filthy place that can be imagined. Indeed, imagination must fall far short of
tho fact, Somo of llio daily sights of the
pedestrian In Peking could not hardly
bo moro than hinted nt by ono man to
another in tho smoking room. Thero is
no sewer or cesspool, public or private,
but tho streot; the dog, the pig and tho
fowl aro tho scavengers; every now and
then you pass a man who goes along,
tossing tho most loathsome of tho refuse
into an open work basket on his back;
the smells aro simply awful; tho city is
oho colossal and uncleansed cloaca. As
I havo said above, tho first of tho two
moments of delight vouchsafed to overy
visitor to tho Celestial capital is his first
sight of it. The second—though 1 must
uot omit to thank my too kiud host for

Now Yorkers, who are the greatest "scat
terers" In tho world, whether in business,
literature or the pursuit of professional researches, may extract a useful lesson from
the sublime concentration of the old German
scholar, who, although his devotion to a single thought and aim was carried to tho extreme and nearly to tho point of tho ludicrous, it nevertheless illustrates tho folly of
too great diffusion in any pursuit.
That this is tbe ago of specialists, when any
man who can do one thing better than any
other person, or even better than most persons, reaps the reward, is proven in a thousand ways, in small matter*- as well as in
those undertakings that leave their impress
upon an age.
All newspaper men kuow that Oliver Hitch
cock made his everlasting fortune through
sticking to corned beef and beans. His little
underground restaurant became famous all
over the country, and Mr. Jay, from Way-
back Centre, hunted him up and took him In
as one of the lions of the wicked metropolis.

There ia an old fellow dowu ou Massau
Kt reet who has grown richer than half tho big
merchants around his humble store, and all
that ho sells is insect powder. So great did
tho fame of tho vermin destroyer becomo that
a dozen imitators sprang up in various parts
of the city, yet without injuring tho prosperity of the original.
Goodyear was a one idea man, aud be
haunted capitalists with his gum shoes until
thoy began to call him a crank, but he carved
out for himself fame and fortune enough to
lit out a dozen average men.
Governor Ames, of Massachusetts, acknowledges that tho colossal fortune of his family
was founded upon shovels. His firm made
shovels and shovels, and at last the Ames
shovel led tho world, when, presto! Ames
was rich.
Ono chni) mado a fortune out of clothes
pins that thut up with a spring, butthe funny
point in his success is that tho people never
found out that his pins were intended for tho
security of tho weekly wash, but misappropriated them for paper clips and mado a run
on him.
A Yankee began the manufacture of padlocks to fasten dog collars. Ho made no
other padlock, but got rich all the same. Another man, win' hit out the idea of the return
ball, und stuck to thut and nothing else,
amassed a competence.
But, perhaps, tho most singular single idea
worked in tho mercantile lino was that of the
liy trap man, who had n place of business on
William street. Ho sold nothing but fly
traps, and hud them of all varieties and various styles of architecture, each one better
than tho other. He had crowds of customers,
and got rich just In lime, for tho poor fellow
to whom ho sold out was ruined by tho combined efforts of the siuglo idea fly paper man,
nnd tho equally solitary Idea windows creon
man. Both these worthies declared n. revolution against the house fly, wero victorious
and retired upon ample fortunes.
The original weatherstrip mau was one of
the ono idea contingent, and middle aged
New Yorkers remember that ho vied with
tho Daily's Pain Killer man and Hadways
Heady Relief man in desecrating tho face of
nature, dittoUiek fences and dead walls with
his advertising. They all got rich at the expense of Iheir follow citizens.
There Is a famous down town drug store
whoso proprietor is a convert to tbe ono idea,

All the patent medicine and specialty advertising firms aro simply working the ono
Idea scheme. Even in journalism tbo ono
Idea man usually gets there—if be has the
necessary financial backing at tho start. This
was peculiarly illustrated In the old Daubury
News, which, from an insignificant weekly
blanket sheet, published In an obscure town,
Oevcloped into the most famous humorous
(paper hi the United States.
There is only ono drawback to the single
idea as applied to literary ventures, as well
as, iu a lesser degree, to commercial undertakings, and that is the ultimate certainty of
successful imitation. But the imitator does
not usually begin to see tbe point until the
originator is on tho high road to fortune, and
by the timo tbo opposition is iu a way to
divide up tho business the original Is able to
step down and buttou up his pocket, leaving
tho imitators to cut ono another's throats, to
the profit and delectation of tbe public.
Among tbo professions tho scope of tbe specialist is evon more pronounced than among
tho commercial branches of human industry.
Tho neurologist, who studies tbe nervous diseases, aud wbo would consider himself insulted if asked to prescribe for a case of measles;
tho oculist, wbo charges you an outrageous
fee for looking iuto the iris of your eye witb
a microscope, and who chiefly looks wise and
talks mysteriously; the aurist, and half a
score of other medical aud surgical specialists
reap the big rewards of tbeir profession, and
get most of tho glory. The dream of the
newly fledged medico is to blossom out into a
consulting specialist, sit in his oflice and tako
fat fees, ana ref uso to go out of bis olllco save
to seo old Money Bags, who is willing to pay
handsomely to cheat tho gentleman who li
bouud to get bim sooner or later.
A reporter was in tbo olllco of a famous
Now York specialist In mental diseases the
other day, whoso sole bobby is a beliof that he
has a talent for novel writing, and came in at
tho tail end of a long procession of cranky patients, wbo sat upon tbe edges of their chairs
and regarded the others iu tbo room as lunatics, Tho colored attendant kept tho patients
going in ouo door and out at another with a
celerity that appeared ludicrous, when it was
remembered that these wild eyed people came
to consult tho great authority about the most
terrible ^orongemeut that tho human frame
is heir to. It seemed as though they just remained within tbe consulting room long
enough to disgorge a feo aud wero then hustled
out. As each patient would bo got rid of a
little bell would ring, aud tho business liko
darky would usher the 'next in order into tho
Inner room. These audiences were permitted
to last just so long every day, and when tbe
outer door was locked no one could be admitted. It was, "Come to-morrow."—New

As soon as she opened tbo door he came in,
sat down and told the following tale:
"In the course of my rumbles near the sea-
shore I was obliged ouo evening to ask a
wealthy farmer to put me up for the night.
" 'Why, certainly,' said he, with a promptness that surprised me. 'Only too glad to
help a fellow creature along. Would you be
willing to sleep in that barn yonder? it [smug
and clean. I use it ouly to store hay, and my
cattle aro housed m that other ono, farther
away from the beach.'
"I thanked him for his kindness, and ui it
was already growing dark ho took a bunch
of keys, unlocked lhe door and ushered mo
in. 'Now,' said lie, 'you can make a bed for

I was ready to drop with fatigue before I entered that barn, J lay there fur two hours
without closing my eyes, and I seemed to bo
growing moro wakeful us tbo night woro ou.
At last I sat up with my back against the wait

"PshawI this was nil fancy—a delusion of

a piously economical old lady, who wanted In

"Thus I raved aud reasoned alternately for
two moro hours, with my eyes fixed upon a
bright ray of moonlight which streamed
through a chink in tho barn wall above my
head. I couldn't keep my eyes oft it. It
looked, to my excited fancy, like a long
bright finger pointing at something, aud I
seemed to bo waiting to seo what it was.
"Gradually, as tho moon mounted higher in
tbe heavens, that long bright rny descended
to the barn floor, until finally it rested upon
—a pair of heavy top boots, with tho toes
turned up, sticking out from under a heap of
bay at the other end of tho barn.
"A cold wavo swept through me, and my
hair began to bristlo liko tho tail of an indignant cat. Who could my fellow lodger be?
Surely there wero feet in thoso boots, or the
toes would not be turned up. Wby didn't be

hated to finish tho sentence. How long that

"There wns uo escape for me. If lhat door

yelling, 'Wake up, herd' My worst fears

Growth of tho Beet Sugar Industry.
The simple and inexpensive methods adopt
ed in the German factories have made tbe
beet sugar manufacture one of tho most profitable of industries, and tho work goes on day
and night, at a prime cost for conversion of
$3 per ton of beets, or ono cent per pound of
sugar, uot estimating the cost of tho beetroot,
but including labor and all materials used,
like coal, coke, lime, charcoal, wear and tear,
aud interest on tho invested capital. The
monthly disbursements of such an establishment eroded $00,000, and givo employment
to thousands of wago earners in direct and
collateral industries. One sugar corporation
In Franco reported a net profit derived from
tho manufacture of beet sugar a fow years
ago of $3,000,000, and the season did not extend bejOQd 120 days. Under theso new conditions tho production of beet sugar in continental Europo bus doubled in the last decade; and, after tho homo populations aro
supplied, the surplus is exported'to Great
Britain and tho United States, reducing the
prico of sugar In tho markets of tho world
moro than 50 per cent.
Tho sugar refineries of this country uso the
beet and cane sugar indiscriminately in the
manufacture of tho block sugar of commerce, and tho family grocer sells tho imported refined beet sugar at a price from 88
to B0 per cent, above tho prico of cane sugar.
Before our late war, Louisiana produced
more sugar than Germany; and although tho
beet sugar industry In tho latter country was
greatly stimulated by tho high prices of sugar
prevailing, incident to the entire destruction
of tho cano sugar industry of tho United
States, yet as late as ISTSthe empiro produced only 2,500 tons, whilo for tho year 1SSS
a production of 1,800,000 tons of sugar and
saccharine resultants is recorded.—-V. H.

Russell Street, Bloomsbury, London, Dear
Sir:—We embrace iliis opportunity of con-
gratulating yon upon the wide-spread reputation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. 1.
Collis .Irownc's Chlorodyne, has earned for
Itself, not only in Hindostan, but all over
the Last. As a remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a better is im-
polled into the country, and wc shall be
triad to hear of its I'm,Iii,j; a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. The other brands, we
are happy to say, are now relegated to thc
native basilars, and judging from their salct
we fancy their sojurn there will be bul
evanescent. We could multiply instances
luflnitum of the extraordinary efficacy of
Dr, (Vill- Browne's Chlorodyne InDiarrnce,
and 2nd Dysentct) Spasms, Cramps,
NV'iralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
a general Sedative, that have oteiirred
iinu. t our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhoea, and even if
tlie ,11 re terrible forms of Cholera itself, we
have witnessed ils controlling power. We
have never used '.ny olhcr fotm of this
medicine lhan Cllis Browne's, from a firm
conviction thai il is decidedly the best, and
also from a sense .;l duty wc owe to the pro"
fession and the public, as we are ofthe
opinion tnat the substitution of any other
than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERATE

the Surveyor's Institution, in an article
contributed to the Canadian Qtuetle, has;
the following:   We spent a day at Banff,
and visited the Anthracite coul  mine,
which at no distant day will form one of!
thc staple industries of the eountrv.  The |
company is now shipping over 100 tons a
day of excellent anthracite coal to San1
Francisco via l'ort Moody.   < lentleuten
in Vancouver who have been  using tbe
coal speak in the highest terms of its
qualities.     I tlo nol think it extravagant j
to venture the prediction that at no remote period the output from these mines
will  reach  1,000 tons a day.   The pro-1
prietors. of the mine now find it  impossible to fill the constantly increasing de-
mand in San Francisco for their coal.

The Salt Spring Island Mining Company (limited) was incorporated some
weeks ago and work has since been prosecuted on the mine, men being kept at
work steadily night and day. A shaft
was sunk 85 foot, at which depth a well
defined ledge was found. In order, however, to prospect tbe ledge at a greater
depth and with less expense, the company have decided to run a tunnel from
the side of the mountain 100 feet lower
down. The tunnel is now in 100 feet and
everything so far gives evidence that the
mine is going to turn out well.
