vein located beyond a doubt by
geologists. The mine opening is
placed at a point where it will be
most convenient, where there is
proper drainage and where other
conditions are most suitable.
In addition to the small mills
at the mines for separating the
zincand lead and other matter in
the ore from the fluor spar there
are two large mills operated in
Marion. These buy the spar in
the fineness of wheat flour. The
ore is hauled to these mills in
wagons and except for severe
winter weather when the roads
are too bad to travel a large
stock is always on hand.
Fluor spar sells at from $6 to
$15 per ton for the grade or fluxing
qualities, and from $11 to
$26 per ton for crushed. This
allows a nice margin of profit to
both miner and mill operator,
while good wages are paid to every
one who helps to handle it.

chemical composition of lead and
zinc but upon casual examination
looks like it was some sort of
stone or quartz. Some speci

Owing to the lack of railroad facilities
the mines enjoy only a
local patronage. These mines
were started and operated for
many years by John Bell who
was the Union party candidate
for President in 1860.
In all this time the mining industry
has been uncertain and
operation has been sporadic.
Now it seems as if it really has
reached a business basis and its
success assured. There will nev

In nearly all of these mines
lead and zinc are found in greater
or lesser quantities. Both are
sufficient to make them valuable
byproducts, and as such they receive
due consideration. As far
back as the war of 1812 these deposits
were known and thousands
of the bullets with which the
Americans fought the British
were molded from lead dug from
the rough surface of Crittenden
and Livingston counties.
Une of the chief causes cf the

This was very valuable and costi
