True to his well-known wav, he commenced

but Abe likes to have things look nice and
clean, and lent a willing hand. Uarjienters,

taken from the Ccrro de Pasco silver miiup
in Peru shows that the submerged portion
of the mountain is very rich, and a rough,
estimate shows that a body of ore will bo
exposed bv the new tunnel which Mr. Hen-

to $500,000,000. These mine hae lain un

known to the present generation, though
they had been w orked for 2.10 years, when
the mines had to stop on account of water.
Peru has now di-covercd that a tunnel can
be built which will drain the mountain
completely, by draining off the lake from
which the water in the mine comes, and .-ho
is so much in earnest about it that the first
