TREATING RICH ORE

Silver City, X M Aug 29 Treating
rich ore by hand instead of shipping
It to a smelter, is the practice adopted
by the Langston mine officials. The
rich ore now being taken from this
property at Pinos Altos is being pound
ed up fine and then it is panned. The
residue is then treated by amalgams- '
tion with mercury and the metal is ob- I
tained from the amalgam by passing it I
through a retort. Even after this I
process, considerable gold is left in the i
ore and this is sent to the smelter.

Uncertainty Adds to Interest.
What lends almost breathless inter

France and England have all along
kept their aerial experiments as pro
foundly secret as possible. From time
to time there have been maneuvers and
demonstrations, but the world has prac
tically no knowledge of the exact aerial
equipment of the combatants. What
deadly air fighting machines the three
nations have "up their sleeves' has up
to now been largely a matter of specu
lation What surprises they may have
in store will very shortly be revealed.
Then too. though astonishing pro
gress haa been made in the science in
five years, aviation still is largely in
an experimental stage English. French
and German experta have planned and
built experimented, but not until now
has their handiwork been given prac

skirmishes of the war. the English put
a German submarine out of commission
with one shot by smashing her peri
