According to u previously arranged

House Burned Near Fords Ferry.
A most disastrous fire occurred at
the residence of T. N. WolTord Moi - j
day night, April Cth, in which his house
and nenrly nil of his household goods
were burned to tho ground. The fire
started from some unknown cause not
long after midnight. When the fire
was discovered by tho inmntcs at two
o'clock, it wns too lato to recover the
houso from tao flames. Only a few
articles were saved before tho fire
gained n complcto hold aK over the
house, which was reduced to
embers half an hour after the
flames were discovered. The loss incurred
by the flro was estimated at
$1200,00. There was no insurance on
the house. Immediately after the fire
a number of Mr. WoiTord's friends got
up some subscriptions for the benefit
of the distress family. Mr. WolTord
and family are now living in another
house on their farm not far from the
place where their formerly stood.

praise and applause as has Howe's
Great Ixmdon Shows. An ovation

From the genesis of the show until
its present collossal perfection there
has not been a solitary season in
which it has not led its fellows in the
multiplicity nnd general excellence of
its attractions ami now it towers above
and dwarfs all other tented exhibitions
in comparative insignificance, and this
season it presents such an opulence
of sterling und meritorious attractions
as to entitle it to be designated as a
vast Amusement Golconda whose wondrous
wealth of entertainment is un-li
Bed nnd immeasurable. Howe's
Great Iondon Shows are prolific in
leading and sensntional features, and
fully equipped with' the finest stable of

( has a large, well-ordered and well-selected
menagerie, containing living,
vigorous specimen of all that is
strange, rare and curious within the
range of natural history, and this
Royal Romnn Hippodrome is a realistic
reproduction of that of the dayB

It may be said, however, that to
these always prominent and desirable
attractions have been ndded for the
' current season, many features so stu
penaous in magnitude, so overpowering
in unprccidented grandeur and inv

that the features mentioned, grand

The Reason They Moved.
Last Sunday, while explaining the
Sunday-school lesson which pertained
to the bartering of tho Jews in the
Temple, the superintendent asked tho
children, "Why did the Lord send them
out of the Temple?" As no one answered
he wished to make it clearer,
and put the question in this way:
"Why would a man mnke peoplo move
out of his house?"

A NEW FIND
Western Section of Kentucky and Eastern III
nois One of tbe Richest Floor Spar Producing
Areas in tie World. Considerable
Money Has Been
Made onFluor Spar.
It is a well known fact thnt the
western section of Kentucky nnd eastern
Illinois is one of the richest
producing areas in the world, and
considerable money has here been made
in working the pure spar vein, but inasmuch
ns most of these spar veins also
contain zinc and lead, which up to the
pn sent time, has not been amenable
to separation: there is a fortune in an
economic method which will produce
the pure spar from this class of material.
Although considerable work has been
done towards cleaning up fluorspar
from zinc, lead, sulphur, etc., through
various methods, such as oil flotation
water concentration, and air separation,
nothing definite has been accomplished,
and the problem is therefore,
as far as these methods are concerned,
Some few years ago il was supposed
that oil flotation would effectually solve
tho problem. Clean lead was separated,
but the main problem, that of
eliminating zinc from tho spar, is still
unsolved, on account of the slight dif
ference in gravity between the zinc
and the spar, which is a delicate operation,
and one almost impossible to accomplish,
and makes it financially impossible.
At about this time it was
suggested that the problem might
be solved through chemical
means, and therefore certain ore reduction
schemes were proposed. The
most feasible nnd best ndnptable method
to accomplish the desired end, was
found to be the application of hydrochloric
acid in the presence of an oxidizing
agent. By this means the zinc,
lead, etc., arc converted into chlorides,
and as such can then be readily removed
by washing and dissolving out
with water, leaving the spar in its
naturnl ground condition, ready to be
disposed of as ground spar of A number
1 quality, and also producing zinc
and lead chlorides.
The process as carried out in practice
is as folio 's:
The fluorspar which should be free
from calcspar, (viz: carponateof lime)
but may contnin variable percentages
of zinc nnd lead sulphides, is crushed
and ground to about forty mesh. This
crushed material is then treated in a
suitable furnace and at a proper temperature,
said temperature not to exceed
750 (leg. Cent, to tho action of
gaseous hydrochloric acid, in tho presence
of an oxidizing agent. This oxidizing
agent mny be oxygen from the
air, the decomposition products resulting
through the addition of nitric acid
or nitrates to the. charge, or chlorine
gas, which the inventor orefers. The
chlorine ga which is used in this operation
is produced primarily through
the electrolisisof a salt or brine solu
tion. This operation produces caustic
soda and chlorine gas. The caustic
soda selling nt n price of 2J cents per
pound. (00') will cover the major cost
of the production of the necessary
Now in treating the impure spar
with hydrochloric acid and the above
produced chlorine gas as previously described,
the impurities such .is lead,
zinc and sulphur, aroliinlnated. Supposing
we have a spa'r. containing per
cent of lead 10 per cent zinc, then we
should have per ton 100 pounds of lend,
200 pounds of zinc, a few pounds of
sulphur, which is eliminated, and tho
rest (if the ore be pure) approximately
1650 pounds of spar. At the present
market price, say A cents for lead,
4 cents for zinc, we would have 100
pounds of lead, value $4.00, 200 pound
TO THIS DISTRICT.
zinc value $8 00, 1650 pounds of pure
spar at a low estimate of ten dollars
per ton, value $8.00, giving a total of
$20.00 per ton on ores, that are at the
present time worthless. The zinc and
lead chlorides which are produced above
are amenable to electrolisis the same
as salt. This operation producing an
exceedingly pure lead and zinc, and at
the same regenerating the chlorine gas,
for use in the further treatment of
raw ore, making a continuous cyclic
I have produced large quantities of
metal by similar means in Europe and
conceived the idea of the treatment of
fluorspar and rebellious zinc and lead
ores, preferring, however, the method
of trc4tmefit should be kept a secret
process, but found it difficult to do so
and raise sufficient capital to establish
a plant. Mr. P. H. Jordan, of Cleveland,
O., who represents me, advised
me some years ago to procure patents
on my process for ore treatment, which
advice I took, and applied for a basic
patent in iua, wnicn was granted in
1907. This patent haa been followed
up bv other patents for the treatment
of rebellious zinc, lead and silver ores.
There are large quantities of ore exist-ant
which are not amenable to present
smelting operations, and from which
large profits could be derived. Therefore
it is my desire to bring these ores
into such a condition that they will become
a marketable commodity, where
as they are now lying dormant and are
worthless. Wm. Koehlrr,

The Princeton Presbytery of the
Presbyterian church United States of
America closed its session Thursday
evening, with a popular meeting addressed
by Dr. Kunts, of Mayfield, on
the topic, "The Relation of the Church
to the Working Man."
The meeting was an unusually interesting
and successful one.
Wednesday Presbyterial communion
was observed. A large audience was
pretcnt There was a splendid musical
program. The sermon was prached by
Dr. Bull, of Hopkinsville.
It seemed that almost the entire audience
participated in the sacramental
The different reports showed 'he
work of the churches in the bounds of
the Presbytery to be in good condition.
A deep, devotional spirit pervaded
all the session. The writer, in all his
experience in Presbyterial meetings,
has never attended a more interesting
and helpful meeting, or one in which
there was more of the spirit of love
toward other churches, or more
in regard to the work of our own
'The good people of Sturgis let themselves
out to entertain Presbytery and
make it pleasant for the delegates.
Tho Presbytery adjourned to meet
in Mayfield in the fall.

to him, be ye come out as against a
