The large iron deposits of the  district are again attracting the  attention of investors, and the  splendid success of investors in  the western portion of ' the district, will prove a strong incentive to investors, to follow and  secure the large deposits of iron  on Bull River and Dibble Cr��ek.

Within a  melioration   man   has  harnessed  J heir force, converted  their energy, into electricity  and   compelled  nature  to do" the  work.  In thirty years electrical science  .has.advanced  from-the field., of  discovery and invention to practical application to'the arts and  industries,   developing    a   tiny  laboratory spark ' into a power2  fill    agent    which    moves   the  wheels   of   industry  and  commerce.    The telegraph-and  the  arc  light were   known   before;  but the  telephone,   the electric  railway, the incandescant  lamp,  and the electric motor have been  used only within a generation.  ,,     Electric^  cranes'-   and   hoists  would build the Pyramids to-day  with  ease and  dispatch.      The  ���iiiivsuauiiua Or- Uiiraliiutsu��� wOiiiUieu  who actually wore out their lives  in.that monumental labor of dead  ages paid the penalty , of ignorance.-' Economy, and concentration' of, effort are the lessons of  the twentieth century. ', '  ' ���Th"e automobile truck wheel-  ing tons of dead weight from  place to. place under, the guid-  t- 1 r y  ance , of . a ; driver   whose only  labor is to pull a lever, is an ex-  ��� ample in every day  life of an  ' electric   machine   doing   safely  and   economically , work   which  was but recently the 'wearisome  task of man and  beast.     Merchandise will soon  be collected  by .electrically operated  express  wagons,' transferred  to electri-  cally propelled .freight' cars, and  .whirled > from    New   York' to I  Chicago at a "speed ofr90,"miles  per hour, over trunk lines whose  problems of electrical e^uiwneht  and.   maintenance]yFM-^ have  ��� solveditli'emselves(^��^  ���" Traction aiid lighting are the  two   applications   of  electrical  energy r to everyday life which  are   most    in   the   public .eye.,  Twenty years ago there-were no  electric cars in the United States  The application of electricity  to  trunk line railway'tract ion is believed by many experts to be a  .devolopment.oLthe near future.  ���Western Mining World.
