Prof, .1. lv. Parks, the noted mineralogist and mine geologist, has con
eluded his examination of tbo Arling*
ton and Bpeoulator properties and,
upon ln'3 re-commendation, the com-
pjiiiifs*, acting in concert,will proceed
with tho erection of large works for
the treatment of their ores. Once
established, the mill will treat the
contents of the vein entire, to/jether
wilh all the existing dumps, In
examining the properties Prof.
Parks treated them ai3 one,characterizing tlu- vein as thn Arlington fissure
and classing it as the foremost silver
mine he knew of In the dry ores.
Jnst prior to his leaving the eity, the
Professor very kindly submitted to a
little cross examination as to his visit
here, detailing his experience in
these words:
'For iho past month I have been
i making a critical examination of the
combined Arlington and Speculator
I properties. They possess a largo fis
j sure, very highly mineralized, which
runs through the entire property for
practically a distance of two miles.
Up to the present time only the high
grade ores that could stand the
charges of haulage, freight, and
smelter treatment h.i ve been shipped.
Associated with these ores, however,
there is a very large tonnage of
workable ores thst have cither been
I aft in place in the mine, used as fill
in,: in the stupes,or tho excess placed
on a separate portion of thc dumps
as nu asset. I examined the property
with a view to determining tin* ore
reserves and probable futures,-and to
make a critical examination of the
mineral constituents nf the ore, and
| duteruiino whether these lower tirade
ores could not be^jeoitoinic*ill\ treat-
esl on the ground. 1 ht*"ve *5>Bli> to
tlie conclusion that, with acombina
tion mill, ombracing procos es in
winch I have had successful practien]
experience, such ens can be economically treated; ar.d, owing to thu
largo proportion of them in the vein.
tlis returns ii valuable metal from
them will appear as a large factor in
tlio profits derived from this great
ore deposit.
"This method of treatment thai I
have proposed and recommended
will very materially reduce the cos:
of min ing compared with tho preseni
method of minin!,' for high grade ores
icily, during which is necessitated
the breaking down and c iring for a
certain portion of lower grade ores
In these dry ore mines silver is the
principal uietal sought for, while in
properties i.i ether camps, such as
Butte and the upper Slocan, silver Is
^ bve-product, as it ia associated
moro or less with other metals. The
Arlington Assure contains bodies ol
the highest grade variety of I-'i'ei
bltrgite that I have ever met with in
my 22 years of practical experience
in all pans of the world, much of it

bearing variety efgrey copper.

re reserves of nre, wnuc
a vary hands nuo asset is possessed In
the l.iw grade ores on the several
damps. The property is cap.ibis* of
thu production of ore In largo quantities f*>r many years tn come. 1 do
not hcsl'ato pi say that the vein will
be productive of a good grade of erei
for a I in*1   time  in  the   future,   both
laterally and to a great depth."
In consenting to the abovo interview Prof. Parks stated ho was not it*,
the habit of making public, any feature of .i report when examining
mines, but In ibis instance there were
certain featuri * that the management i ,
of th« Arlington liicowilabi Mines'
were not averse to proclaiming in the
trim Interests if tlio camp. Tne
com panics  were  close corporations
■ible. to inform the management within a very few cents just, what the.
actual cost of treatment of the ore by
the mill would be. He believed,
though, that the result would be sueh
that the whole vein could bo success-
fully treated at a profit, If large
hoilies ofthe high grade article were
encountered, then tbe management
might find It advisable to ship that
clement as it was, otherwise everything would be treated. The Professor hinted that hauling by wagons
from the mine would be largely dis*
pounted, as the product of the mill
would go fur ward in the shape of
With tho adoption of Prof. Parks'
report., the management Will proceed
wiih the establishment ol tbo mill, in
tht* construction and operation of
which manv men will he employed,
while the force atthe mine itself will
he largely increased. In places the
Arlington vein is 40 feet wide and
the ta-k of taking out the mineral
will give employment to a much
larger crew than has yet done sor
vice ht thc mine. Prof! Parks' visit
will work a mighty benefit to this
see1 ion.
J. Frank Collom, manager of the
Arlington-Speculator, told the Nelson
News that tho process to bo installed
at the mine is known as the lVllatin
Glorissey, and was one of the earliest
known for treatment of dry ores, but
wis only used in a laboratory, and
not beiug found satisfactory at the
time oi'its discovery the patent was
allowed  to   lapse.   Since  then   the
cyanide and electrical treatments, of
which it is a combination, luve been
no greatly improved that the sys cm
is revolution!*! -tl.   About n year ago
a property with  very  similar ore to
that ofthe Ar ington, was purchased
by Dr. Sendryx at Prescott, Arizona.
This property had been left unwork*
id,as it was found impossible to treat
the ore al a prolit    Prof. Parks, wins
wm fi miliar with the process mentioned,  believed   that  it  would  bo
fniKul possible by m-ans of it to successfully treat tho Arizona are, and
under his supervision it. was installed
and run fur two months, and since
has been carried   on   under  other
ln.inag. ni'- nt with gratifyingbucc«sj.
The idea ofthe system is 11 take a
dry pre and put it through a crusher,
creating "ll the s*ims-s possible, which

tho whole is placed  in vats, wi h a
weak cyanide solution. Amalgamating plates are placed at the bottom.
With a negative polo at the bottom
and a pneiiivo pole In  paddles to stir
uie mixture up, the gold, silver.copper and a little leas! are precipitated.
I*ltat product is thi u retorted «t the
mine into base  bullion and  is ready
for shipment to a refinery direct,thus I
doing away with shipping and smelt
ing charges.   In the year that the
system   has been   in   use at Prescott
91 per cent of the  values have been
saved In the ores treated.
To fully test their ore, the Arling*
ttn will ship a carload toprcseott, to
be treated by the mill, and if successful an experimental plant will be installed at, the mine. At present no!
nro under .'10 ounces can bo handled.

At the smelter only 80 per cent ofthe

values are returned. Undor the new
process the charges will not exceed
12.60 per ton and, as the product will
be shipped In the way of bullion, the
saving In freight and mielter charges
will be great. If proven a success

increase was the result ofthe enlarged output at the Arlington, it having

"But how should you know anything
about farming?" she protested.
"How should 1 know peas from
beans? However, I wasn't thinking of
going Into farming. I've got something
better than breaking my back at the
plow. Have you any idea what can be
done with a poultry farm of fifty
acres? Oo you know that sueh a farm
would make a Bothschild of a man ln
a few years, and with very little work
on his part? Mrs. Bowser, a fortune

"That ls good news, but let me bear
the details. You propose to buy a farm
of about fifty acres und ruise chickens,
ducks, geese and turkeys?"
'That's lt. ami Standard OH dividends won't be iu it It'll take most

of tbe year should give us 3.000 liens,

That's a total of 2.250. nnd they will

"But I'm going to ruise my own corn,

In tbe office of the Duuedln Dully
Rush the reportorlul staff was busily
engaged, save perhaps Topson. lie hud
Just strolled In, plunked himself down
In his chair, and ufter scribbling off a
short "two header" passed It luto the
city editor's room und resumed his
usual lnzy attitude, feet cocked over
the top of his desk, hat on the buck of
hla head, while be stnrcd Into space
■nd slowly puffed away ut bis pipe.
Topson was naturally lnzy. The boys
claim he was born thus, lie wns not
altogether "a good fellow," though no
•ne seemed to have might to say
against him. He wus reserved, luni little to say and nlways did his work
well, though he did take much longer
ta accomplish It than uuy of his colleagues.
Tbe telephone in the elty editor's
room rang. In a few minutes that Individual walked Into the reporters'
room, looked around quickly ami
caught sight of the figure of Topson,
the only Idle man In tbe room.
"Topsoe!" be culled, then hesitated a
moment. Tbe elty editor wanted some
good work accomplishes!. He wanted
lt quick, and Topson wns anything but
quick.   However, he continued:
"Go over to No. 1 und report to Fox.
He will be In the detective department

wbnt it needs In tlie wny of Illustration
nnd so forth. Make a goosl spread of
it, but none of your long theories.
Want this thing short untl breezy.
First murder In a mouth.  Now, bustle!"
Topson donned bis coat and. after
slowly filling bis pipe, left tlie room
with apparently no further thought
than If he had been sent across to get
a paragraph about the annual meeting
of the society of Know Nothings, Sucli
tblngs us murder stories, social gatherings or pink tons occur us mere Inch

all work to him. and thnt Is the wuy he
ligures lt up.
An hour bad passed since Topson left
the office and no word came from blm,
The city editor was getting restless.
Fox had returneil from police hentl-
qunrters with another story, but beyond tbe fnct tbnt Topson bnd reported

This wan ll new role for Topson. The

Many stories nre told of Sothorn'*-
original methods of entertaining hjs
friends at dinner, and possibly the
most amusing Is that of the beluted
guest. When, late ln the dinner, thu
frleud was anuouueed, Mr. Rothern ex.
claimed, "Let us ull bide under the
table," and down they all Went save
Mr. Sothern himself, who remained
seated. When the tardy guest entered
Mr. Sothern rose und received blm
with exquisite courtesy, saying, "Winn
your nume wns anuouueed, my guests
for some unaccountable reason, all hia
under the table." After u few moments of discomfort one by one they
crept out nnd buck to their Bunts.
I heard from both Mr. Sothern nnd
Mrs. Vincent this account of an outburst of fun at a dinner given by him
In his parlor nt the Bevere House: As
tho guests, ten In number, were gathered about the open lire before dinner
a stout, pompous waiter, afflicted with
short breath, addesl tbe last touches to
his dinner tnble, nlretidy spread. Ten
large, square plcfes of bread were
plnced wltb mathematical precision
one at each plate, und then he left the
room to bring the wine. Mr. Botbern
saw his opportunity mid, s'ulllng \,u
dog, cried: "Tiger, the brenil! Quick,
Tiger!" Aud the nimble little gray-
hound hounded lightly upon the table
iigaln and again as he beurd his master's Imperative "Fetch the breud!"
until each piece had been removed to
a durk corner near the fire.
I'pon the winter's return all was silence. The expectant look upon Mr.
Sot hern's face showed only that dinner
was awaited. Standing for a moment,
bewildered, tbe waiter, seeing no bread
upon tbe table, hesitatingly turned to
the door, tben retraced his steps to
tbe table, examined It eurs'fully nnd
hurriedly left tbe room. He soon re-
uppcared with a fresh plate of bread,
und again nt each plnte a piece wus
carefully placed, and he retired with
tlie empty plnte. "Quick. Tiger! Fetch
It again!   More breud!   More breud!"
And once more each piece was removed before the grave wnlter reappeared, ami all were ugalu silent. One
look nt the table and one ut the
guests, and there remained no doubt

A Detroit woman who labors nmong

"One duy there wns n death hi the

" 'It was better for her. wasn't lt.

Hon. Mr.  Sifton  Ii:t3  informed  the

"Tarte's protective ambitions will not

Well-wishers of the camp and interested claim-holders will rejoice at
tho encouraging words of Professor
Parks, found In another column.
That he bas successfully solved tin*
qooitlon of treatment or the ores of
the Arlington lissure is beyond question,, and by next year will be established large works for extracting the
mineral. In Itself tbe establishment
ofthe mill will giro employment to
many men and ensure a larger force
at the mine. But it is in Prof. Parks'
brave words of the calibre and con
ditlonof our leading mine that one
finds the most satisfaction, he classing
the property as of tho highest stand
ing, with largo reserves of ore, and
capable of extensive production for
many years to come, The Professor's
opinion is encouraging in that it dis
poses for all time of tho idea that the
dry ere belt has no future. It estab
lishes the merits of the camp beyond
reproach and, in tho assured profits
lor the Arlington Speculator, places
the seal of prosperity on this section.
