able the promoters to proceed wi;h in
ventilation of the zinc and lead fields
in the vicinity of Andalusia.
Those interested in the venture al
ready have options on ahout acres
of land lying southwest of the village
of Ai.dalusia. They have men on the
ground at work boring through the
zinc-bcaiing ledges at various places.
Some of the samples unearthed are of
a richness equal to those found in the
great zinc regions in other states.
More startling than the presence of
zinc in paying quantities, which has
been suspected for some time, is the
discovery that lead is also present. The
'combination renders the future of the
region most promising, provided pre
tnt prospects are borne out.

Alfred Thatcher, a mining man with
much experience in the southwest, is
in Andalu.-ia township now in charge
of the prospt ctors. One of the most im
portant finds he has made was in an
abandoned coal mine. A ledge toohar-1
to be worked with coal mining instru
ments had stopped the progrtss of the
miners, and this ledue. when broken
into under Mr. Thatcher's direction,
was found to be rich in IhiUi lead and
zinc. The investigation now centers
at this Mint and a hole will be drilled
down from the surface through this
The success of this mining enter
prise means much for "Kock Island
county. It is to be hoped that it will
not turn out as many others have done,
a mere stock selling scheme.
