'  Li the foremost rank of silver pro -  ducing mines in West Kootenav  stands the Silver King. It differs in  two essential particulars from all the  other g.-eat wealth producers of, the  country, 1st in the mode of occurrence  of the ore, 2nd in the nature if the  ore.  I suppose everybody connected with  mining here knows that the Silver  King ore occurs in two large masses  and not in the form of a true fissure  vein with distinctive .walls, as is  usual in thc Slocan ; and that the ore  consists in the main of what is com-,  monly called peacock copper ore.  Although it must be admitted that thc  term peacock ore is very appropriate,  it is not strictly correct, as in miner-  a logical circles *the name is usually  given to tarnished copper pyrites  which has assumed an iridescent appearance from ex] osure to the air.  It is more correctly described as  variegated copper ore.  If you are fortunate enough to discover a piece of this mineral,showing  crystallizatiop you will observe that  jt, is composed  of perfect- cubes   cr  pcta hedrons. it is however coinpS.ra-  tivfcly rarely found- '.in this condition,  being-most.frequently massiveo  7 It shows a copper red or brown  color on a freshly cut surface, but  quickly tarnishes until it present?  tint' beautiful, clxaract eristic appear-  gravity varying from ��!> to 5J, it is  slightly harder than that mineral.  It has a general metallic appearance  and a streak which differs from its  color, being of a pale greyish black.  It contains when pure' the same  elements as copper pyrites, namely,  copper, iron and sulphur, but whereas  copper pyrites contains only 34 per  ceut of copper, bornite or erubescite  as'this mineral' is called, frequently  contains 70 and rarely falls,below 50  per cent., being sometimes replaced  by a considerable quantity of silver  as in the Silver King ore.  It forms, .very ��� valuable copper  deposits in Chili, Peru, Mexico, Germany anYV several' parts of the United  States; copper being now worth in  the neighborhood of 12 centra pound,  with an upward-tendency; but after  all its commercial importance in this  province depends in a great measure  on the'silver wliich.it contains.   "  Another - mineral of great value'  ���which    is   found   in    considerable  quantities in the Silver,'King is what,  is.known���-as- grey;* copper ore."  This  mineral , is   met ��� with   in- paying  quantities in the Slocan, constituting  as it does the main'source of the silver  in the Best mine and others in that  region.    It is called also fahlerz and  tetrahedrite, the latter,  which is its  generally accepted'-name,   from the  fact of its crystals being mostly in the  form of modified tetrahedrons.    It' is  ���usually found in the massive state,  with a steel grey 0j iron black color  and streak. ��� It has about the same  specific, gravity as variolated copper  but-is sometimes considerably harder,  although it is very nearly as brittle.  There- is another mineral  called  stronicycrite  consisting  entirely   of  the sulphides of silver and copper,  which-when pure Jyields 58 per cent  silver, but as it usually contains a  large quantity   of the   puie copper  sulphide,   the silver only -averages  from o to 30 per cent.    It is an ore of  very slight occurrence, but deserving  of mention on account1 of its richness;  MINING NOTES.  Happenings    of ' Interest   Among   tlie  Treasure Vaults.  Mr. .Sproat  soon got near enough to land to reach ^ncew!th which we'.are* all familiar.  It  is   very brittle and   although  much lighter than galena> its specific  a plank held out to him and he and  his charge were drawn to the shore.  It varies greatly in composition,  being normally a sulphide of copper  and antimony containing 35 to -1J per  cent of copper, but part of the copper  is often replaced by silver, iron, znic-  or mercury, occasionally by tin, lead,  platinum.or gold. Arsenic is nearly  always present in quantities varying  ."roni a trace up to 10 per cent, and  grey copper containing bismuth is  not alloj'cther unknown.  In rare instances silver almost entirely replaces the copper, sometimes  .forming SO per cent,  of the whole,,  but, as k rule, the ore will be found  to contain from 2 to 10 per cent  ���You will thus see that it is practir  cally impossible to tell all the consents of any particular specimen of  grey Copper ore without the aid of a  complete chemical analysis. .

An Army of Moon*.  t  Astronomers conceive it to be possible for the earth, under certain circumstances, to capture as sataeilites  some of the roving meteoric bodies  known to be numerous in space, instead of bringing them to the surface  as aerolites.   As these bodies are too  small to be seen���a mass of 1U0 tons  being invisible at 8,000 or 1,000 miies  when   brightly  lighted���the   earth  may be actually attended by hundreds  of invisible  moons.    Sir J.  Herschel was even of opinion that  such moons not only do exist,   but  they may be  large enough  to be  visible for brief intervals when beyond the earth's shadow;   and Sir  John Lubbock has supplied formulae  for- calculating the distances from observations  of_ the   kind. ���' M.  Petit,  director of the Observatory of Toulouse, has . been led by observation  and calculation to conclude that the  earth  is  attended by at least one  meteoric stone of considerable size.  It is about twenty six times closer  than the moon, its orbit being about  5,030 miles from the earth's surface,  or 9,000 miles from the -centre, and  the tiny moon revolves around the  earth  in three hours   and   twenty  minutes. ���Invention.  FOUR HUNDRED MILES AN HOUR.  The   Railway  Age,   of Chicago,  quotes from the Pittsburg Commercial  Gazette an interview with Col. James  ' Andrews,   a . well-known American  engineer, on the union of the West  ing house Electrical and Baldwin Locomotive Companies.    - 'Col. Andrews  has," says our contemporary,   "the  reputation of being one of the best-  read engineers of the country, and is  especially conversant witli railroad  affairs."   He was one of the engineers  who helped to build the jetties at the  mouth of the Mississippi, and his ser  vices to Captain Eads helped to make  the enterprise a success.  The Colonel,  who was in a talkative mood, said he  saw no reason  why we should not  travel at the rate of 400 miles an hour  as easily as thirty.   He had made  drawings on an idea he had formed on  railway travel,   and connected the  cars of the future with an electrical  device which would do away entirely  with locomotives.    Each car would  carry its own power���that is motors���  and pick up the power from a single  truck, or from iron pins in little boxes  along the track.    "Instead of huge  wooden structures, which experiments  proved required immense power to  overcome, we intend," said the Colonel,    "to build  a  steel  cylinder-  shaped car, with an immense smooth  surface, resembling a cigar, save that  it will be pointed at both ends,  to  allow it to run. in either direction  without turning.   All nuts and bolts  and external appurtenances will be  level   with the  surface externally,  thus saving the power required to  overcome friction.    This car will be  run on a single track, with a rail in  the middle of the ties.   On each side  of the  rail will   be  a  system   of  brackets^ six or seven feet high, supported by outside braces.   At the top  of each bracket, and connecting all of  them, a channel bar will run    The  car will run on two wheels, similar  to a bicycle, at each end of the ye hide.  Ajong the side Of the car as many  little friction wheels will be placed as  may be required; these will run in  the  chaiinel bars to keep the  car  balanced.    Springs will be attached  to the friction wheels to aid in regu-"  lating the car should it tend to one  side while running at high speed."  The cars will be as luxuriously upholstered as possible inside. Over  400 miles could be run, if necessary,  as there is, in his opinion, no danger  in fast traveling, so long as the train  could not leave the track, as at present. It would then be possible for &  busy man to take a trip of a few hours  to San Francisco: ,an(l the dangers of  collision and track-jumping would be  lessened. The cost of sueh a line  would not be greater than at present.  People would do more traveling under  such conditions, and no freight would  be carried., These are Colonel Andrews' views as to thefuture of electric  traveling, and it must be admitted*  that they are, at all events, "revolutionary" enough.���Mining Industry  and Review.

Possibly some of the bloomer  tfiris have no Bible, and it is for the  benefit of such that we quote : * 'The  woman shall not wear that which per*  ta'inetli unto man * * * for all  that dp so. are ah abomination unto  the LoVd."���N.

She killed him.- with ,an /axe,..made  black pudding of his blood, and sliced  the flesh into layers,,which.after salting and spicingf tliem, she made into  .sausages. When "she was arrested,  she"confessed, and told' the officials  that her .''father made excellent eating".''' She admitted that she had devoured seven sausages made of the  old man's flesh. *- A reporter" states  that in her .cottage may be fouud a,  . copy of Dean Swift's ironical pamphlet  recommending the Irish peasantry"to  eat their children so as to pre vent* the  offspring of the poor from being a  burden.to their parents.���Ex.

After  reposing in the furnace several hours  at a temperatare of about 300 degrees, the attendants opened the doors  and found, the. Phcenecian sitting up  i 1 his piepan shivering with cold.  As the draft from the open door struck  him he cuddled up in one corner and  bellowed but.': i For Gcd sake, close  that door, or I'll catch mvdeath of  cold." "  -*s^-  PETROLEUM  IN  THE   ISLAND  OF  JAVA.  S. F. Karnes has recently returned  from the Island of Java, says the  Pittsburg Dispatch, where lie has  been engaged for a year and a half  in drilling for oil near Soeraybay,  about eight miles from the east coast  of the Island. Mr. Karnes was in  the employ of Capt. The Toanlock, a  very wealthy gentleman of the  Fiowry Kingdom.  "He drilled four wells in all and got  oil in three of them, the other was a  duster. One well was drilled to a  depth of 135 feet, and when tested  pumped 16 barrels a day. There is  no regularity in the sand formations  in winch the oil is found. Less than  < 00 feet from the well mentioned the  oil was found at 80 feet and the well  showed for 30 barrels a day.  The oil is dark and of 31 gravity,  and in many particulars resembles  our Ohio and Indiana product, but  his not the disagreeable odor. When  refined it makes a very grcd illumin-  ant. The earth seems to be saturated  with the stuff. By digging a hole  and st a few feet from the surface it  will fill up with oil.  rThaMfjlling was all done with machinery, J and:^ natives assisted Mr.  Karnes in fcjie work of putting down  the wells. He stated that he found  great difficulty in making them understand bim when he first went to  work, arid about the first thing he did  was to learn to swear in Dutch. The  natives art indolent andrlazy, .and it  was not an uncommon thing for the.  driller to. go to sleep while turning  thc temper screw ,an#, fall from the  derrick stool.    ";" .  The native labor "cost from 16 to 36  cents a day in American money, and  they thought it ;gopd wages.'.  The  natives refuse to work in the after/  noon, and think a few hours in the  morning  constitute  a day's  labor.,  They, spend much, of the time in bathing in the rivers, men and women,  and the bathing suits-worn are.much;  more abbreviated than those'seen at  Atlantic Ci*y" or Long/Branch.   Morality and virtue,  as taught in this  country,   are not in vogue on   the  island. *  A Mr. Shoop, who visited and spent  a good deal of time investigating the  Pennsylvania - oil fields. some eight  years ago, has an oil field with 150  producing wells and-two refineries in  the interior, and has amassed a vast  fortune in the oil business.  , Mr. Karnes thinks the island rich  in petroleum deposits, and in time it  will be a competitor with Russia, and  when the country ha-Vbeen developed  the Russian bear will not be in it.

The  bear immediately showed fight.    One  of tfie prospectors got' away,   while  the other climbed up a small tree.  He could not get entirely out of the  reach of the ferocious animal for she  grabbed one  of his feet in her teeth  and suspended,'in the air she held on.  The prospector was in a terrible dilemma.    He shouted to his partner to  keep away    After a few moments of  awful suspense the limb he was holding on to bent down.    The sudden  jerk caused the bear to let go, taking  with  her the  prospectors shoe.    It  was  torn,   although   tightly   laced,  clear off of his foot, taking several  strips of flesh with it.    This saved his  life, as the' bear, after chewing the  shoe a short time, disappeared-in the  forest.  , The unfortunate man was-a long  distance f. om camp.

The hospital to be erected by Doctors France' and Magee is now well  under way after some delay in securing lumber.  Several buildings intended for different purposes are under way. Next  to the France-McGee hospital, the  store building being erected by Jack  Smith is the most conspicuous. This  will be completed in the course of another week.  W. F.

Frisco  mine,, was instantly killed in the  Frisco by a raining , timber, which  himself and several others were endeavoring to hoist with the aid of a  block and. tackle. The body was  taken to Butte the next day for interment; accompanied by Joseph McDonald and Chas. Beisel.  . The Hunter-has been partially shijt  down a few days pending ^he.repairs  to the mill machinery. Everything  is now in,full operation again, with a  force of ninety to ninety-five men.  The mine is looking exceedingly  well. The ore is of such a character-  that it will make concentrates very  fast. No crude ore is being saved,  but everything is run through the  mill. The timbering is caught up  close, and" the mine is in good shape  for working.

At night there are usually  a few down from the Hunter, but as  the Morning is nearly three miles  from the town the men stay pretty  close to their work.

' Women are now admitted to lectures at Edinburgh University, where  they sit on the front seats. Recently  eight women were attending: Professor Tait's lecture on the geometric  forms of crystals. "An octahedron,  gentlemen," said the professor, " is a  bod j7 with eight  plane faces.   For  example "   -'Look  at the front  bench,"   broke in a man from the  back seats.  When Lord Chesterfield was in his  lastillness, and his death was only a  matter of a few weeks, his physicians  advised that he be taken for an easy  drive in his carriage, and he went  out. As the equipage was proceeding slowly along, it wras met by a  lady, who remarked pleasantly to the  great invalid: "Ah, my lord, I am  glad to see you able to* drive out."  "I am not driving out, madam," answered Chesterfield ; "I am simply  rehearsing my funeral."  , Once, when one of Fairragut's gunboats on'the Mississippi was just going  into action, one of tlie powder-  monkeys was noticed by an officer  ykneeling by one of the guns* saying  his prayers. The officer sneeringly  asked him what he was doing, and if  he was afrai.d. "No, Iwas-praying,"  said he. -'Well, what were you  praying for?". "Praying," said'the  lad, "that the enemy's bullets may  be distributed the same way as the  prize-money" is, principally among  the officeis." ^  Judge Lamar, at a political meeting, in his own S��ater alluding to the*  Civil War,   suggested as a parallel  case the parable of the Prodigal Son,  arid the joy fur reception at his, home  when the n.iughty hoy returned.   He  was succeeded by a ifegro, a Republi  can,   who,   after  soiiie   general   re-  . marks, paid his resj ects to Lamar's  parallel.   .  "Forgiben!"    said   he,  "dey,   forgiben,   dem   brigadiers?  Why,  dey'se come walkin' into de-  house, an' bang de do',  an' s*o up to  de  ol'. man  an'  say:    'Whar  d;st  veal?"'  A German sportsman once said to  a well-known Scottish baronet:  "Talking about dogs with keen  scent. I have one in Germany that  will compare favorably with any you  have in England."' ''Very remarkable dog, I suppose?" yawned the  listener. *. I should say so. The day  after I left home, he broke his chain,  and, although I had been away for  hours, he tracked me and found me  merely by scent. What do you think  of that ?" "I think you ought to take  a bath," replied the Caledonian, turning calmly away.  Major Lomax, of the United States  army, visiting in Canada soon after  the War of 1812, was entertained in  ���Quebec by the officers of one of the  royal regiments. After dinner,  speeches and toasts being in order,  one of the British officers having imbibed too generously of the champagne, gave as a toast: "The  President of the United States, dead  or alive." The toast was accepted  with laughter. Major Lomax rose to  respond, saying: "Permit* me to  give as my toast 'The prince regent,  drunk or sober.'" The British officer  sprung instantly to his feet, and in  angry tones demanded: "Sir, do  you 'intend that remark as an insult ?''  To whicli- Major Lomax calmly replied : " No, sir; as the reply to  one.'"',,,-' ' '���:.{��� ���  There is a dentist in San Francisco  who is noted for.his musical tastes  and his high charges. His ordinary  fee is fifteen dollars per hour; his  extraordinary fee is unknown. Some  time ago a lady was in his chair, and  the dentist was conversing with her  while her mouth was filled with rubber  dams and things. Carried away by his  enthusiasm while talking of a certain  song, he offered to sing it for her.  Taking an inarticulate, rubber-intercepted sound for an affirmative, he  skipped lightly to tlie piano, which  stood in one corner of the operating  room. There he toyed with Polyhymnia; the muse of music, doubtless much to his, satisfaction, and,  turning to his / patient, asked  how she liked it. "Very much, indeed, doQtor," came the reply in  muffled, tones, "but it would have  been cheaper at a concert, for here it  has.cost me three dollars and seventy-  five cents."
