The present  school house, with 'accommodations for  -10 children, was built two years ago.  The past term has seen the children  crowded into the room to the number  of 50 and 55. But now- this crowding-  process is to be overcome and the school  roll will be increased to upwards of (30  in short order, and two teachers will be  employed. All this indicates the onward movement of the town.  SLOCAN MINERAL, FLOAT,  The Arlington has a force of 75 men.  The Slocan Star paid a dividend of  $25,000 last week.  The force at the Ivanhoe is to be increased to 100 men.  Work has been suspended on the  Con lor for the winter.  The lack of snow is retarding the  work of the Slocan rawhiders.  J. M.

A special meeting of the  shareholders will be held in Vancouver  on Dec. 21 to authorize the sale of the  company's assets.  The largest shipment of ore in any  month from a Slocan mine was made in  July, 1898. by the Payne. The amount  shipped was 1850 tons,' which netted the  company a little less than $120,000.  During November the Payne shipped  1073 tons, Last Chance 354, Slocan Star  142, Ruth 112, Sovereign 49, Trade  Dollar 62, American Boy (11, Cube Lode  15, Enterprise 40, Arlington 345, Hampton 8, Bosun 80.  The Minnesota Silver Co. started  their mill last wreek, and will turn out  daily a car of high grade concentrates.  Clean ore will also be shipped from the  Ivanhoe, and this company is likely to  head the list of Slocan shippers for  many months to come. The monthly  shipmente will run over 1200 tons.  of the inhabitants of New Caledonia  is  such that they are actually obliged  to  leave the best profits of the industry to  the 'English.    Moreover, in consequence  of the high price of the coal used, which  comes from Australia, it is necessary to  extract the ore and then sell it.   It can  be neither smelted nor refined, as the  net cost would exceed the profits.   The  extracted ore is sold, not to Frenchmen,  as they are without the necessary  tools  for the treatment of nickel  ore,  but  to  Englishmen-    The latter buy the  ore  and transport it to the blast furnaces at  Glasgow,   where   it   is   smelted.    The  nickel is then forwarded in pigs to  the  refining   works   at   Havre,   and  from  there the metal is distributed in France.  CANADA'S    MINT.  SCHOOL    REPORT.

With the prospects so bright for the  developing properties about New Denver, the dawning of the twentieth century brings with it the reasonable hope  that before its close we shall have experienced that spring boom that has always been coining���but, like a dog's  tail as he tries to catch it, is just out of  jreach.

The "pioneer days" in New Denver's  school history will soon be past.

The Montreal   Witness says;���"The  news will doubtless be gratifying to the  mining community,which will probably  benefit.    Western   Australia's  experience seems to have been that the presence of a mint in a country may enhance  the market price of gold, whether actually treated at the mint or not, by reducing  the   cost   of   its   disposal.    In  Australia the market price was raised  about 25 cents an  ounce,  and as the  value of the gold produced iu Australia  last year amounted to  $79,000,000 the  extra earnings of the mining community because of the establishment of the  mint would, according- to  that calculation, be about 8400,000.   Last year the  value, of the gold   produced  in Canada  amounted   to   S21,000,000,   the   saving  upon which by the  Australian  calculation would  be  $1.00,000.    The  mint  in  Australia, where the curreucy in common use is gold coin, is run at a loss,  and here, where our ordinary currency  is paper, we cannot expect to do better.  The Canadian Bankers' Association has  never favored  the establishment of a  mint, and it may be taken for granted  that the Canadian taxpayer will  object  to be taxed to make up any deficit in  the cost of working,   which  one would  suppose, however, could be avoided by  making the cost a charge, upon the gold  minted, thus merely reducing somewhat  the miners' extra profit."  Toronto Saturday Night:���"The bankers of Canada, with few exceptions, we  are told,do not think a Canadian branch  of the British Mint will be of any use to  this country. Perhaps not, but it will  be a nice thing to  set; Canadian-coined  ing company, of Movie, by which the  Messrs. Guggenheim & Sons, the smelter  people of Antogagasta, Chili, contract  to purchase 81,000,000 of reduced wet  silver-lead ore per year from the Movie  mines  The deal is of great importance, not  only on account of its size, but owing to  the fact that the desire of the Chili  smelters to secure the wet silver-lead  ores of Kootenay for fluxing purposes  may cause a boom in those ores.  In the past three months %��150,000 of  this ore has been shipped via the C.P.R.  to Vancouver and by 'steamer to San  Francisco, where it is transferred into  other steamers for Chili. At the present  time a gang of men arc engaged in  sacking 1,000 tons of the Movie ore for  shipment,but there is some delay caused  by the famine in sacks now prevalent  here.  The ore will run in its reduced state  about ��50 a ton. In the first week in  December another shipment of $150,000  worth of ore will take place. In fact  the demand is only limited by the  supply, and the possibility of getting  the ore forward.  The St. Eugene mines which are producing this vast wealth are owned by  the Gooderham-Blackstock syndicate.  They Were originally owned by a  Catholic priest, who was shown the  outcropping ore body by an Indian.  The sale of the mines by the priest enabled him to build, exclusively with the  money he received from the Goodei-  ham-Blackstock syndicate, a handsome  church, which he called the St. Eugene  Mission.  Owing to the success of the St. Eugene  mines Moyie has sprung from a village  to a city in a few months,and St, Eugene  Mission is famed throughout the Koote-  navs.���Vancouver Province.

Good, sound, ripe fruit cannot  harm the most delicate stomach, and it  is an excellent plan to commence the  morning meal with a ripe apple, or any  fruit in season. Children should be  taught to reject the skins and stones of  any fruit, as these frequently set up  irritation of the stomach and intestines,  and lead to disastrous consequences.  Tomatoes are excellent blood purifiers,  and should enter largely into the summer diet. There is an idea existing  that, the eating of tomatoes produces  cancer. Some years ago one of the best  known cancer specialists was asked if  there was any scientific basis for this  gold pieces,  even  if  we,  have, to look   assumption,    and    he    unhesitatingly  The "MoniteurOHiciei flu Commerce"'  of Paris, in an article on the nickel industry, states that the principal deposits  of nickel ore are found on French soil  in New Caledonia. In both quantity  and quality the nickel of that; colony is  superior to the impure nickel of Canada. It is said that about 120,000 tons  of nickel ore are extracted every year  in New Caledonia. These 120,000 tons  represent a value of.t'800,000, they are  extracted by two large companies, with  a united capital of ��'1,200.000, and by  several other companies. These ngures  .show that the nickel   industry   in   New  longingly at.them in a broker's window.  In   this   country   we   want   the.most  modern   improvements,    and   without  doubt gold,coins will be largely used as  the medium   of   circulation in British  Columbia, as  they are  in  the  Pacific  coast States of  the   Union.    This will  decrease the  circulation   profits  of the  banks, and of course the  bankers foresee this, and would prefer things to be  otherwise.    Canadian   bank   bills  are  not   negotiable,   at  par   in   the   United  States,   except    along'    the    Dominion  border, but if we have; gold coins of the  same   denominations   as   those  of  the  United States,  an  ever   recurring embarrassment will be avoided   when  the  peoples of the   two  countries   visit  another.    Of course this presumes upon  Canadian gold being-  mafia  into  coins  on the decimal system, not   into sovereigns  nv guineas.    The   latter   would  only be  a  nuisance,    but   the   former  would be a step in the  direction   of introducing the decimal system   into  the  Empire as a whole.    The  Empire  now  has practically one flag, one  language  and one sentiment; and   it   is  time  we  approached a common basis of  coinage  and currency."  Toronto News:���"The  establishment  of a branch mint in Canada   may  seem  a   big  fbing.  but  if   the   Government  would give bonds to reffn-ni the admin-1  istration of the Yukon, and cease  from j  the exactions which are, killing  mining!  up there, it would be more to  the  pur-j  ���pose.    If the present oppressive  conditions continue, the greatest gold district  in the Dominion   will  send   verv   little  metal to coin in a vear or two,"  answered that there was none.  Lime water, being easy and inexpensive to prepare, should be kept in  every household. To make it, place a  piece of unslaked lime, the size of an  egg, in an earthen vessel, and pour oyer  it one quart of clear, pure, cold water.  Allow it, to stand a few hours, then filter  through blotting paper, rejecting the  sediment. Put it into a clean bottle,  cork, and keep in a dark, cool place,  where, it can be easily found when required. Lime acts very energetically  on water, and a teaspoonful of lime  water put into a cupful of water or milk  almost entirely destroys am deleterious  substances there. A teaspoonful in a  <"ie cupful of milk is an excellent remedy  for delicate children whose, digestion is  weak. It is also very beneficial in  cases of acidity of the stomach. It gives  no unpleasant taste to anvthing- in  which it is used.  C'lMM'i-ftil     Ti-oaf.iiM-ii!.  Considering the, amount of work that  has been put upon the properties situ  a ted in the immediate vicinity of New  Denver, there is not a camp in the district that, can boast of a better showing  than this.    On Silver mountain,  while,  in a comparative sense,   very little systematic mining has been done, yet the  fact has been proven that there are as  promising bodies of ore there as have  yet been worked  in the Slocan.     This  can be said with equal assurance of the  California, Hartney and Marion.   These  are the only properties that have been  operated on Silver mountain this year  by  companies  with   ample   means at  then- command, and in each instance  the'properties have hilly proven up to  the satisfaction of the managers.   None  of these have yet entered the  list of  regular shippers,   but all have made  satisfactory shipments and have in the  aggregate about  thirty carloads of ore  now on the dumps or sacked ready for  shipment. They also have much ground  ready for stoping and are in a position  to make regular shipments when they  make more perfect their shiping facilities.   The   completion   of   the Silver  mountain wagon road will be all that is  needed.   Even in its px-esent state it is  a great boon to  these mines and will  enable them to handle their ore at greatly reduced cost.  The Mountain Chief, Hie pioneer mine  of New Denver and Slocan lake, is still  idle, but the ore is there in all its richness and quantity and will some day in  the 20th century resume operations as  of old. With the properties adjacent to  it showing up so favorably it will be  taken off the hands of the present owners, without a doubt, and made the  mine that it ought to be.  The favorable development of the  prospects in the neighborhood of these  Silver mountain mines proves that,  when they get into the hands of moneyed men who can open them up on a  larger scale, many of them will develop  into mines of greater or less magnitude.  The same may be said of those on the  lake shore near the Bosun, and those of  Goat mountain. The work that has  been put upon the dry ore properties  of Goat mountain is slowly demonstrating the existence there of a very  valuable ore body, and it is only a question of time and work when New Denver will be able to boast of some regular shippers of high grade dry ore.  any time since work began. No stoping  has yet been done, but in the course of  development over 200 tons of ore has  been taken out, which will be shipped  in a 'aw week's time. When stoping-is  begun the Hartney 'will be a regular-  shipper.  PINTO   PROVING    B.ETTEK.  When the Northwest Mining Syndicate had a bond on the Molly Hughes  group   two years ago,   things looked  favorable for the dry ore ledges of Goat  mountain   being properly opened up.  But little, if anything,  was proven at  that time.   However, some good prospecting was done and very fine  showings of ore were made at various points  on the property.   Since the ibond was  thrown up the owners have taken out  and shipped ore as they felt inclined.  One   of the   most important showings  made on  the group was   that   on the  Pinto claim, from which  a few tons of  400-dollar ore was shipped.     When the  bond was given up the pay-shoot had  pinched to a few inches and the outlook  was somewhat discouraging.   A  few weeks ago work was resumed at  this showing by the owners, and with  the   first   shift's   work   the   pay-shoot  showed indications of widening.     Soon  it had reached a width of 15 to 20 inches  and was   followed   to   a   considerable  depth, with results so satisfactory that  a tunnel has been   started  to  tap the  ledge at considerable depth.  THE   MARION    IDLE.  The game of "freeze out" that is being attempted on the Marion has tied  that property up, with little prospect of  work being resumed this winter. This  is unfortunate for had work been continued after the partial settlement was  made some months ago, the property  could have been placed on the list as a  regular shipper before spring. There  is several carloads of ore on the dump  ready for shipment. When the Marion  Company gets down to mining and  quits the tenderfoot game of "freeze  out" it will begin paying- dividends. In  the meantime the property will be a  mine only in the prospective.  IS.    C.    ORES     FOR     CHILI.  The largest ore deal ever arranged  in British Columbia has been consumat-  ed bv the St. Eun'cnc Consolidated Min-  Once upon a time, says the Tammany  Times, an invalid rented a room two  flights up in a countrv inn. He got  worse, and worse, and the doctor gave  J him up. Then the landlord called on  J the sick man, and asked bun if he, had  any objection to being removed to the  I ground floor. Naturally the sick man  desired to know why the landlord wanted him taken downstairs, to which the  landlord made the following explanation: "You see, sir, you are worry hill  and my wife is werry particular about  the wall paper, and she, is h'afraid that,  in bringing your corpse, down to the  'earse, the h'ends of the collin might  knock "oles in the new wall paper,  which would beh'obviated if you was so  kind h"a�� to let h'us carrv you down  while vou arc still h'alive."  THE    CALIFORNIA.  The California, on Silver Mountain,  back of New Denver, is forging ahead  under the conservative, management of  A. J. Marks. Since last summer COO  feet of tunnels have been driven on the  property, making a total of L200 feet.  There is ore in all four tunnels, The  fourth is in 1st) feet, and 275 feet in  depth from the surface. In a drift on it  a fine showing of ore was struck last  week. On Sunday another showing-  was uncovered in the same, tunnel. A  raise will be commenced from the  fourth lo the showing of ore in the  third level. More lumber and mils will  go up to the property this week. The  force will be increased in the spring',  when the mine, will be, a steady shipper.  Ore could have been shipped for several  months past, but the nianajrer prefers  tfi await, the completion of better transportation facilities.  HAKTNEV    LOOK INC    WELL.  The   most   encouraging   reports  are  brought down from   the   Hartney.  and  Local Manager   Bluinenauer   is   highly  pleased  with   the   outlook.     The   past  summer's  work   has   proven   the  mine'  entirely satisfactory.   The tunnels have1  been driven ahead   on   the  lead,   some-!  times   with   good   showings  of  ore and  at other times with little.    Rut at every  level ore has been encountered,   and as  depth was reached  Ihe.  pay   chute   has  1 been found to  increase  in width.    Just  | now the  showings   are   belter  than   at  TUR1US     DEVELOPMENT.  The lower tunnel being driven on this  Goat mountain property has tapped the  ledge and encountered the ore shoot.  The showing is very gratifying to the  owners. They expect to work the  property all winter, taking out sufficient ore to pay the expense of development.  THE     KOSUN.  This property continues to make, ite  regular shipments of 20 tons a week.  Development work is going steadily  forward, and is proving very satisfactory tf) the management.

It is claimed by a French naturalist that if all the birds in the  world were destroyed man could  not exist more than nine years.  The bugs would eat up everything  in sight by that time. Think of  this, ladies, when you wear birds  on your hats.  The business man who fails to  advertise in a live local paper is  suffering from false economy, or  the lack of that spirit always found  in progressive natures. He is  generally selfish and prefers to hide  his commercial light under a peck  measure rather than set it in the  columns of a newspaper where the  world can gaze upon it.

This bird, which  is  the  only thing around the office that is  yellow, except the coin in the safe,  sets upon the cap case and sings the  latest songs to the  prints   who  set  up the type for this literary luminary.    The bird is very  wise,   and  never   comes   down  the  elevator,  having seen the bulldog's  picture.  It also has the only pair  of wings  in the office,   although  the  editor  may have a pair before the close of  the next century.  Sara Bernhardt is again   playing  in America.

No stops will  be made except at  cities   where   $3,500   a   night   is  guaranteed.    Thus   it   is   evident  that   the   French   have   captured  America.    It is more than 20 years  since I saw Sara.    Then I traveled  200 miles and  sat  in the  nigger  heaven in order to see this female  play   the    part   of   a    consumptive   courtesan   and   speak   in   a  language of which I only knew four  words, Sacre, Mon Dieu  and  Oui.

Let us look into the  matter.  The precepts of Christ along with  those of all great  reformers  share  the power  of  lifting up   common  humanity from the lower plane  of  sensuality   to   the   higher  one  of  ennobled lives,   but   research   into  the past reveals the fact that  very  little evidence is revealed that  He  ever existed except as a deity built  up by clever ancient   writers   from  the earlier religions of  the   world.  Mithra. Krishna. Buddha, and many  other deities are said to have been  born of virgins.   Buddha,  preached  the Sermon on the Mount, Confucius  gave us the golden rule, and in fact  nearly   everything   that   Christ   is  credited with doing was performed  or experienced by deities  in   existence long  before   Mis  stated   time  on earth.     Mithra. a   deity  of  the  ancient Persians, was born, according to the legend, of a  virgin   and  in a cave on the 25th of December,  symbolizing the renewed birth of  the sun after the winter solstice.  The early Christians chose the  Catacombs as a  place of  worship.  The finest lot of Xmas presents ever seen in  the Slocan.    Come and see for yourself.

There was something in the pose of the emaciated  figure which spoke of a time when  that, too, had been beyond the usual  comely.  "My God !" said the philanthropist.  "You, Nell!"  "Yes," she said thickly, "it is I.  And-~it is like this I met you, Arthur,  after these twelve awful years. I left  home, friends, womanly repute, everything for you, and I have not so much  as seen you through all this hellish  time. But I .love you still; I love you  with all the strength of my soul."  At this point a spasm of awful  coughing shook her, and the racking  strength of it almost terrified him.  When presently it ceased, and she  stood panting, he noticed the foam on  her thin lips was blood-flecked, and  that the shabby dress she wore was  flimsy and utterly-unsuited to the  night. "Nell," he said, trying to  keep down all evidence of the annoyance the forlorn creature cau��ed him,  "Nell, I'm inexpressibly sorry to see  you like this."  With a woman's instinct she divined  his feeling, and for* a moment her  affronted pity of herself overcame her  long passionate love for him.  "Yes," she said, laughing bitterly,  "one would scarcely think that the  woman you first raved over, then conquered, then forsook, only 12 years  ago���the woman you and other men  called beautiful���could not succeed  in so much as keeping her disfigured  body even by the sale of it now. Do  you know, Arthur, that to-night a  brute I spoke to laughed in my face,  told me rag-picking was a belter business for me.    Think of it!"  Glynfield winced, and drew the  robe of self-righteousness more closely  around him.  "But," he said, "how ever did you  come to this, Nell ? I left you in  London, you know; I never thought  it possible that you could fall so far."  "Thought!" she murmured, sadly.  "Of course not! Men never do think  for long nor care. I don't blame you,  dear. When you left me I had a  little money, but it soon went, and I  ger, Arthur."  Here another fit of that fearful  coughing intervened. Then she continued in a very low tone:  "Of course things were easy enough  then���easy ?   My God, how hard!   I  loved you always, Arthur, and every  ���every man who so much as laid a  finger on me I h.ited because of the  wrong done to you.    And when baby  died I thought I should go mad.   But  soon I got the pleurisy and the doctor  told me that nothing  but a warmer  climate would keep the  life in  me.  I did not want to die until I saw  you  again, Arthur.    Oh, I could not die  till then.    And I heard that, you had  gone to Australia, somewhere."  "But, my poor child," said Glynfield, "what good 'can I do? I���do  you know I am married, Nell?"  "No," she said with a sob ot a thing  sore-wounded. "But who am I that  I should blame you ? Only, Arthur,  I know what men think and say of  such as I. They cannot look at thing j  from our standpoint. I tell you that  I love you���love you astruely and as  purely as on the day I left my home  for you. You Will not say I can never  see you, Arthur? It will not be for  long." ,.       '  "Don't you see how impossible that  is," said the Philanthropist, painfully  agitated. "But, Nell, I am rich  now, you know. You will let me  arrange that you want for nothing ?"  The harlot rose to her full height.  Then, with blazing'eyes, as she held  the poor rags about her shrunken  bosom, she spoke, and. the Philanthropist quailed before her:  "You offer me money���you ? 'Then  you think I have fallen low indeed.  Arthur, the time will yet come when  you will realize what you have done;  and I would be willing to become the  meanest thing that crawls sooner than  exchange places with you then. I  left everything for you, and you forsook me without a word. And after  the horror of these years I still loved  you, and forgave what there was to  forgive. But now. Oh, I love you  with all my heart���that is my punishment; and I hate vou with all mv  soul!"  The fit of coughing was this time  such that before it ceased the outcast  had fallen to the pavement exhausted.    He stooped to raise her.  was not respectable.  "Poor devil!" said the Irish constable he called. "She was moity  little good, yer honor, and it's koind  of yez to boide by thejoikes of her."  They took her to the morgue.  So the wanton died. And the man  of God went home to the arms of the  pure woman. ���Hobart Clipper.  Probably two-thirds of the copper  now produced in the United States is  refined by the electrolytic method.

For a Sydney winter the night was  cold beyond the common. A night  of chill wind and skurrying clouds,  following on the heavy and unseasonable rain of the previous day. The  moon was at the full, and as it ever  and anon emerged from some passing  cloud-veil it made the city beautiful  as only the moon can, inexplicably  vitalized the atmosphere, brought out  the massive buildings about tlie General Post Office in imposing and richly  varied chiaroscuro.  Arthur Glynfield, passing rapidly  along Pitt street, noted these artistically charming manoeuvera of the  moonlight with distinct and generous  approval, for Glynfield had the artistic temperament; he frequently told  his friends so. He was a fortunate  man, this Glynfield. The times of  "boom," though they had impoverished thousands, liad made Glynfield  It rich. He was singularly fortunate  with a marvelously acute premonition of a paying hazard. He had  what his intimates called the "luck  ol the devil."  The phrase was not, perhaps,   apt,  for Glynfield had given largely to  church and charity���had become a  pillar of the state and a bulwark of  the Nonconformist conscience.    Even  now, as he strolled erectly down Pitt  street in appreciative mood,   he had  but just left a  meeting which  had  enthusiastically recognized his gift of  one  hnndred  pounds to the  Indian  'famine fund.    A more than  usually  staunch  upholder of the sanctity of  marriage, a stern enemy of all sexual  license, he vv -re on the lapel  of his  well cut coat the tiny dab of white  isilk significant of membership of a  serfcain "social purity league."   Evidently a man of God.  "Sir!"  Mr. Glyngeld was startled abruptly  rroiii his reverie, and he disliked in-  ierruptions of that sort very much at  my time.

With the nearingof the new year  the lead situation is again attracting  public attention. The arrangement  made by the American Smelting" &  Refining company a lew months ago,  says the Spokesman-Review, establishing a flat rate of $4 per hundredweight for lead until the end of the  year did away tor the time being  with much of the differences between  the producing and smelting interests  and the question of a reciprocal arrangement between the producers  and the trust whereby the former  would bear the loss on exports of the  surplus output, thus keeping the  home market healthy, was for the  time killed.  It is understood, however, that the  term of the trust's arrangement for a  fiat rate for lead expires with the  year and that there is a rmovement  on foot for some new arrangement  that will be of the utmost importance  to the lead producing industry.  It is understood that E. W. Nash,  president; A. R. Meyers, vice-president, and ex-Governor James B.  Grant of Colorado, one of the principal  stockholders in the American Smelting & Refining company, are all in  New York, and the presence in that  city at the same time of Charles  Sweeny and A. B. Campbell of Spokane, both representative operators  in the silver-lead belt of the Coeur  d'Alenes, is regarded as a probable  indication that an important conference is on foot that will mean a settlement of the difficulties either by  the establishment of a flat rate or by  other reciprocal agreement for the  next six months or a year.  This question of lead prices, as has  often been pointed out, is one of the  utmost importance to the silver-lead  camps of the northwest, as a comparatively slight change in the price  aggregates a large sum in the profits  of the district. Particularly is this  sn in the Coeur d'Alenes, where the  ore is largely lead. The output of  the Coeur d'Alenes is growing greater  almost monthly. It is reported thai  the output for October was somewhat  ovur 1 il,000 tons ol concentrates. This  about equaled the September output,  but was considerably greater than  that of August Mi-July. As this ore  concentrator on the average about  eight to one. the actual output of the  minea for the month wa  000 tons.  in mining of any one American city;  Houghton county, Mich., has about the  greatest developed system of mining of  any county on the continent.  Sea water contains about live ounces  salt to the gallon. At a temperature of  39.1 degrees F. a gallon of sea water  weighs 8.565 pounds Sea water lit sea  level will boil at 213.2 degrees F.  Specially made gas engines are now  built from three horse power to 150  horse power, capable of producing from  50 to 1500 16-candle power incandescent  electric lights when belted to a dynamo  of the proper capacity.  A single-acting pump is capable of  doing good service, but it is to be borne  in mind that for a given duty the water  piston of such a pump must have  double the area of a double-acting  pump, assuming the strokes to be  equal.  With proper and necessary arrangement there is no reason why an isolated  electric lighting plant should not work  satisfactorily and economically. Any  reputable electric supply company will  gladly furnish full details and estimates  of cost, and results.  There is nothing in the United'States  .i*iniiig- law requiring the locator of a  mining claim to make application for  United States patent therefor. He can  hold it for 20 years, if he so disposes,  by complying with all requirements  pertaining to unpatented'miniug claims.  The silver on an electro-plated plate  wears off in a time directly proportionate to the grade of the ore run over it ���  the lower the grade the quicker the  wear. Barren ore run over a well-  coated copper plate will abstract some  of the amalgam from its surface.  Next to the Rio Tirito of Spain,which  lias produced copper ore for nearly 2000  years, the oldest producer of copper in  the world is probably the Fahigrufva  mine, near the town of Falum, in central  Sweden. The mine is first mentioned  in public records in the year 1220. A.D.,  but is much older than that. The oldest  privilege belonging to the mine is from  King Magnus Ericcson, and is dated  February 24, 1347. The ore contains  three per cent, copper, but has proved  profitable.  A French inventor has'combined a  phonograph with a telephone in such a  manner that a message spoken into the  telephone is impressed upon a wax  register at the receiving end, in case  the person to whom it is addressed  happens to be absent. The registered  message can at any time be turned into  speech by setting the phonograph in  operation. A similar device has also  been employed in Germany.  CONDENSED ADS.
