(.HOW I 11
We are in the habit ot referring to
iluiost any period of the past a* the
i'age of superstition," unmindful ofthe
|act that there is hardly a superstition
the jtast which does not retain a
it hold in this day of enlightenment
nd advanced civilization. It is only
pa little over a year ago that a woman
pas burned to death in Ireland by
her husband and neighbors on the
Charge ot ''possessing an evil eye.
In our country there are plenty of
people who believe in witchcratt as
Implicitly at* did our Puritan ancestors
In New Kmrland. They can l��e found

pre used fur malignant as well ;s
protective purptsi's, it being believed
that the pricking of a pigs heart will
get on the heart ot the person aimed

put the heart, full of pins and thorns
Up the chimney, in the belief that as
the pig's heart dried and withered, so
Would the heart of the jieetileot person
���Who had "evil eyed"  the  pig.    This
nperstitiou, though in a different
form, is familiar in the symisiihetic
magic oi Kosetti's "Sister Helen and
the waxen imags of her false lover.
Among the wilder sections of Pciinsvl
vania. Tennessee and other middle
and southern states, as well as among
fclie fishermen of the Delaware aud
Maryland peninsulas, many instances
of firm Indict iu the "evil eye "are
Said to exist.
The precautions against witchcraft
are like the forms of witchcraft; very
numerous. Spitting is a very common form ot protection against the
"evil eye." Theocritus is almost
literally translated by the rustic who
says: if you meet anybody with a
north eye spit three times"--only one
ot the instances, however, ot the existence to-day of tbe superstitions of
Paganism, but one which still lingers
in the unseemly French habit of insult
by spitting in the face. Among objects
in common use whose origin In popular su|ierstition has been generally
forgotten, are the half moons on
torses1 ha mess, which were snee re
garded as potent amulets against
"evil eye," the horseshoe nailed over
the doors of houses, and the coral
baubles on which infants cut their
teeth, of which the shape keens the
remembrance of tbe old classic fascin-
um because the image of it was hung
around the necks of children as a
guard against witchcraft,
Although the belief in the "evil eye"
may not grow, it will probably none
the le��& exist in more or less pronounced forms, until that millennial day
when a high state of civilization
shall be general in what are now the
least favored jiarts of the earth. Tlte
hope of weeding it ail out at onve is
as vain as that of-the sudden over
throw of the various fanatic taiths ot

the statement that: "the recent purchase ofthe control of the Helena A

reported to be only a beginning, and

Items of this purport are of almost
daily occurrence in reliable journals,
showing immense purchases of silver
lead mining properties by  wealthy
l>ondon    companies    where    these
metals are found in liberal quantities.
They can be accepted, we believe, aa
good    illustrations  ot    the   evident
change of sentiment in the financial
world as ��� egwrds silver as a standard
money metal.    That silver will  be
recognized the world over as a standard money metal   equal   with gold
there is no doubt, and these regular,
extensive purci a e   of silver proper
ties by omnpaniea of Ixindoners who
are the acknowledged financiers o
the world and best able to judge the
the financial  pulse of   the   nations,
indicate   clearly   that   the day of bimetallism, international or otherwise
is not far distant.

The following extracts arc taken
from au article entitled "The, JlAr
peetive Resumption of Mining Activity,"' written by David T. Day for the
'Engineering Magazine,' New York.
"The quantity and value of the
mineral products of the Cnited States
torm a good barometer ot industrial
prosperity. Mineral industries are
more directly affected by commercial
changes than almost any others
since the crude products of the mine
serve as a starting-jioint for most,
manutacturing enterprises. Any industrial expansion must be anticipated by a corresjioudingly increased
supply ot the crude minerals necessarily involved.
"One well recognized condition
necessary for mining prosperity is to
find a market tor the continually
growing supply. Full activity for the
enormous mining plants of the country
means great prosperity. But, after
several years of declining industrial
activity, a glance over the field shows
a great aggregate of capital invested
in idle mines and their accessories.
That this is a serious, ever, critical,
condition for the capital Involved
will be appreciated by considering
the rapidity with which an idle mining plaintdepfecfatesT Mining machinery is rendered worthless more
rapidly than that of a well protected
factory. Frequently the niine��water
is so acid as to quickly corrode metal
to a worthless condition, and In the
deeper mines the encroachments ot
water alone frequently amounts to
more than the mineral is worth, and
then a shut down means abandonment.
"No G*reater contrast can be drawn
between the effects ot prasperons con
ditions upon two rliflerent mineral
industries than is to be seen in Uncases of the building stone and Hie
precious metal industries. The tonne r
is entirely dependent upon a market
which comes with the increased
building in a season o| even moderate
prosperity, while gold and silver, on
the contrary, always have an a lam
dant inirket, no matter how great
the product! Still, even tnese are
dependent open the | re valance of
prosperous industries to induce tin-
investment ot capital iu producing
them, and our gold and" silver mines
have telt the recent season of dull
times as greatly as any other line of
mining work. The prospector goes
ahead in all seasons, unreaaonabh
seeking dejiositB whether he can sell
them or not, so that the present condition is one. of countless undeveloped
deposits ot gold and silver, ot greater
or leas Lmportanoe, waiting for the
necessary capital before a produetcan
lie reajized.	
"Beside the well recognized* increase in mining activity iu the Kwcky
Mountain region, tlte op|tortunity tor
profitable investment- in gold-mining
in the Piedmont region of the South
must lead to greater development. U ia
in this field that much prosperity must
result from the use ot new reduction
methods tor refractory ores. There is
no doubt that the expectations from
the great cyanide, propesj and recent
advances in chlorination have been
altogether too sanguine. N evert he-
less, the possibilitv of treating low-
grade ores, practically tailings, by
one or another ot these devices ia
leading to more business-like methods
11 this entire field.    That the  result
means a marked InoreafSj in the gvlii
product in 18:>7 is undoubted.
'Newly discovered fieldsof unusual
richness, anil old fields, now made
valuable by great reduction in costs
Ot mining and milling ores bj the introduction ot new and improved processes, are in a pbsitidn to add to the
-"There it* ��o particular branch of
the mining industry  which has not
felt the   quickening   effects  of these
economies,   but the  precious metals
have been especially benefitted.    We
do not. refer  to  the record breaking
figures at which   low   grade  quartz
has Wen mined at a profit, but rather
to the large ttodiesot low grade ore,
as well as old waste damps, which it
has become i-ossihle to work profitably
by the cyanide process which  puts
the low grade deposits in the attitude
Of a newly discovered store of wealth.
Thus at Cripple ('reek   very little ore

a ton in teliurideof gold, although in
most localities ��7 ore wuuld l>e shipped, and still poster- ore lnitrh* psy
excuses.    Already there  are  large
dumps at most of the Cripple ('reek
mines which exceed  ��7  in gold, and
these must surelv be  used  at future
local cyanide mills.
Among the new gold fields of the
United states, that at Gunnison, Colorado, and those iu the Black Hills
seem of unusual promise. Again, the
reaction from the South African ev
