LINING AS A BUSINESS.
The success of any l:uniness is based upon the fact of obtaining reasonablec returns for the amount of labor bestowed. In a min ing district where there are a number of good mines the result of compensation for la bor is as certain as in any other branch of business. It ha: been so in all the mining portions of the United States where intel ligent work has been carried on. It can notbe supposed that those who do not work, or those who do not know how to work will beso fortunate as those who exhibit in(lustry and apply a knowledge of the busincss to enterprises if this character. The most for- - tunate are those who know best how to work and how to do the most, of it, although tiere are cases where the mnost wortn less of miners get great mines, but it is not t he rule. A discovery needs to receive alarge amount of labor to be successful and nothing but con tinuous and persistent labor is sure to bring success. As it is in farming, so in minining; there are many things that mtake success or de stroyit, outside of labor, but the rule is that a certain amoumit of labor should pro duce certain results it'pursued intehlligently. When at times all things are fair to the look there may be circumstances that are not looked for, but as the rule a "lprospect" thatlooks well will give results, in values, that will be satisfactory to the miners, and in many cases a lortune in reward of a year of active labor and a mine that will prove a solid income to its owner. The history of the efforts of men in min ing is the same as in all affairs of life. The miner who succeeds in working a mine after ithas been discovered, is the man of thought and energy, and he is one that will sink his shaft and lose his ledge however small it may be. lie pursues it and never lose sight of it, and makes it his business as faithfully as wouhld a mechanic or merchant. The day has passed when it is believed that any man who can swing a sledge is a miner, or that a mnan who can do nothing else can work a mine. Intelligent labor has developed many mines that would otherwise have remained without working and has added to the prod clc tionof precious metals to a won(lerfu degree. The Comstock lode, of Nevada, has nadce a race ofacomplished miners whose survices are sought after by owners at from four to six dollars a day, and all over the Pacific coast there are mining superintendents who get a salary of from $300 to 400 per month, who took their first lessons as wokrmen in the mines of the Comstoek. As a business such men know it is a good one, and they would not change positions with any men in the country who perform any kind of labor. No other men do so much good to the coun try as the men who strip from the ledges the waste rock and leave bare the riches of the Continent. Men are scattered all over Cal ifornia living in ease and comfort who made the first step in that direction by labor in the mines. A year or two, a few years at most will so situate a man that his hard labor will be over. Such men will declare that min ing will pay and they can realize that it does. An accomplished miner is always sure that his services are needed, at what is deemed * high pay ; and miners are the men who dis cover mines in the new and oldold districts, and they work them to the best advan tage. It sometimes occurs that a mani who has no knowledge of mining or of ores discovers a pospects which he does not know how to work and of the value of which he is ignorant. In such cases the discoverer is tihe victim of the designing, while the ex p erlenced miner would reap the reward of his labor or good fortune. The country needs thousands of miners who have experience that will enable them to do work well and intelligently, and to such Colorado offers the richest field ever before known to the world.-Colorado Farmncr. Montana offers, we think, the best field lbr skilled quartz miners to be found in America. Tr:e pranctical experience of ;nin ers of this class, l:re, is limited compared with those of Nevada and Colorado, yet the success has been prdport:onately goon, and Itcereasing as they learn more of the busi J-OFFIT1' & R1OSENCIRANS, Dealers in STAPLE and FANCYV TATIONERY, School Books, Picture Frames, MIouldings, Notions, Fancy Goods, etc., ete.
