Such a Getting up Stairs.
As Daniel Webster said to the young

A. Hutchinson, Foreman Downer's Kero
sene Oil Works, Boston, Mass., writes: Mr.
Patton, one of our foremen, in walking up
stairs last week sprained bis leg hndly. I
gave him a bottle of St. Jacobs Oil to try.
He used it and nn almost instantaneous

Goal and Minerals in Ohina
At present the direction of the vice
regal minitig enterprise has been given
to Mr. Tong King-Sing, who has under
bis orders a full staff of miners and
mining engineers. Tho field chosen
for the first mining operations is a
wide track of undulating ground,
whose main direction is to the north
and west of Tientsin. Enormous beds
of coal of old formation have been
found, mostly between limestone lay
ers, so that working will be inexpen
sive, safe and easy. In the same dis
tricts there are inexhaustible beds of
iron-stone, and Iron ores ot tho better
i kinds, such as spathose.lhnonite, lueina-
tite, are also found in rich deposits.
At no great distance' from the chief
coal minw, una u country easy oi
access, copper ore of abno"mal rich
ness has been found, and in the hills
which bound the vast coal and iron
districts, lead, silver, and manganese
await the miners' advent The coal
deposits will be worked first Pits
have been selected for opening; tram
ways are to be laid, and a canal will
connect the center of the coal and iron
country with the rivers Peh-tang-ho
and Pei-ho. At the end of this sum
mer the first produce of the coal mines
will be brought to Tientsin for sale,
and that large market, which now de
pends to a great extent upon Nagasaki,
will thonccforth draw all that is re
quired for steamers or government fac
tories or homo uso from the Chinese
mines, which will also supply Pekin
and the towns on the Peiho and Grand
canal. Tho coal is of good quality, of
high density, much of it gives but lit
tle smoke, and there is almost absolute
frodom from sulphur. North China
Carl rrel7.nl thus discourses, in the

proceeds to smoke his favorite cigar.
