In the old tariff the duty on zinc
ore was 20 percent of its value. In
the new tariff the duty is graduated,
being proportioned according to the
value of the ore. Ore containing from
10 to 20 percent is 1-4 cent per
pound; between 20 and 25 peroent, 1--cent
per pound, and 25 percent or over,
1 cent per pound, the last being, the
average value. .
Almost coincident with the increase
in duty, on zinc, the National Railways
of Mexico issued a tarff from Chihua-

rate- on zinc, and lowering the rate

ins: duty on zinc, went into eriect on
August 5, 1909. The importation of
zinc fnto the X'nited States from Mex-
! ico through this port for the first six
months of the year 1909 (under the old
tariff) was 19.07S tons, valued at
$206,967. For the first six months of

tariff was operative, the importations

Following the Increase in duty, there
was Httle or no zinc imported, due to

so a comparison of the six months or

of the new tariff to an equal period

Mount Franklin on both sides of the j

Heights, the ridge east of the smelter

though they have a grayish granitic

What Granite Is.
Granite Is a deep seated rock, that
U solidified while deeply buried, rhyo

of the same chemical composition
which cooled at or near the surface.
Granite is fairly even In grain,, the
texture being such that the principal
minerals, or mineral groups, may be
recojmized by the eye or with a lense,
and the rock mainly consists of alkali
feldspar and quartz, together with
small amounts of mica, hornblende,
pyroxene and other minerals, one or
more of which may be present. The
chief minerals in ordinary granite are
feldspar, quartz and mica. The
granite in the steps of the postoffice
building is hornblende granite. This
is from the quarries of Llano county,

Rock for Concrete.
The andesite near Kl Paso affords an

the only rock suitable tor mixing with
Portland cement in reinforced concrete

stood the test of volcanic fires in the

tremendous heat of great conflagra

would slake to powder when water
from the fire engine Is poured on it.
