Many Eastern men. Interested In mi

that their applications arc so disas

faulty. For Instnnce, n story !s going

superintendent who cabled his com
pany that the "shaft had caved in nnd
thnt a new one would have to be
made." The president of the compnny

In no matters does a mining super
intendent show his good qualifications
better than In the selection of his foro

make poor superintendents for lack of

swayed In their selections by fancies
as silly as those of a schoolboy. The
elements that make a good Amerlcun

those that make a good mine foremnn.
