11 THE CAMP KNOCKER. THE MINING INDUSTRY Never Give Him any Pointers on Your Business Transaction. GEOLOGY IN MINING. Even a Little Knowledge Would Often Prevent Expensive Mistakes. The Granite Mining Journal has the following: "If you want to be successful in handling a mining deal. Just keep your while the whole matter of strata, ' mouth shut about the matter. There Ml J That a knowledge of geology In Vractieal mining is not only beneficial, but posll'velv nocessary, has been oft limes proved. Millions of dollars have been fruitlessly expended in a search for valuable minerals where none ex isted, and where a knowledge of geology would have saved the un- , necessary expense of the work of de velopment. There are many instances where expensive shafts have been sunk In search of a certain ore-bearing horizon, when the collar of the shaft was below that horizon, with no pos, siblt hope for encountering it. while in attitude above the sea the platform lit the month of the shaft was con siderably higher than the ore-bearing zone In the same district. This pecu liar fact was due to faulting of the strata, resulting in lower beds beins raised to a higher elevation than later strata of the same series. The sayin-r once mineral-bearing, always mineral-bearing." is a good one from a geo logical standpoint, hut not always so when viewed commercially. If a cer tain area of archaean rocks is found to be mineral-bearing, it usually fol lows that any later rocks in this same area, overlying the older crystal line rocks, are also mineral-bearing: but this is not to be assumed as Indi cating that the entire concession of luter rocks laid down upon the sub merged Archaean will prove profitable, lor such rarely, if ever, proves to be the case. An exemplification of this theory is found in the Black Hills of South Dakota, where the Archaean or Algonkian rocks -vre notably mineral bearing, nnd the overlying sandstones (qunrtzites). shales :nd limestones of the Silurian and Carboniferous forma tions are also ore-bearing in part. Kach stratum is not ore-bearing, but there are several horizons already proven to carry gold and silver, and sometimes lead ores in commercial quantities, and In some of the dis .'..!.... ihot retrion there are no less hnn five separate ore-bearing zona or separatehoilzons In which miner als ire found in the Ulack Hills in commercially valuable quantities .Is not less than nine, and there may he others, as yet undetermined, und this does not take into consideration the occurrence of ore deposits in the mas sive eruptive rocks of the, region. A somewhat analogous condition is found at leadville. Colo., and in other mineral regions in which sedimentary beds predominate. Peep wells have been sunk for water and oil in crystalline rocks where a novice in the science of geology could have predicted failure with assurance. Instances are not few where consider able work has been done on strata of blaCk, lustrous, slaty rock, in the be lief that it wns anthracite coal: beds of obsidian have also been located ns coal, and black basaltic rocks have beni believed to be tin ore. These are but few of the numerous mistakes made by those unfamiliar with th; simplest principles of geology and mineralogy. Mining and Scientific Press. GOLD SEEMS EVERYWHERE. are men prowling around seeking In formation that will put them 'next' to the party you have coming to look at your proposition, so that when he ar rives the local promoter,, who is a dangerous character, will blast your reputation and cuuse the prospective investor to distrust your statements.

The liberal minded business man of this character knows too well that a "knock" hurts the "k'locker" as well as the "knock ed."

The United States land offlc. at Washington has made a rulelns that a patented clam shall refer Its lines to the lines established by the govern ment and land surveys in the several western states, and the ruling has neei and still Is the cause of much unnec essary anxiety on the part of those described as a dangerous character owning patented mining claims. All who are familiar with the meth ods of the government land surveys and their results are aware that many of these lines are not true north-south or east-west courses, and that many other discrepancies exist; but this fact and the ruling of the land depart ment need cause no serious uneasiness on the part of those owning patented claims. In Colorado, particularly, a great deal is being said about the mat ter, and the oninlon Is eiDressed tht the land department Is about to involve the entire mining region of the west in Interminable litigation by shifting the claims about into new positions, In the effort to make the description)! of the claims conform to the land nr vey lines. Nothing of the sort, '.s contemplated. I and if it were, the land department has no authority to float mining claims from one position to another at will When the land detiartment has issued a patent to a mineral claim, that claim nasses bevond Us jurisdiction. The stakes or monuments are necessarily prima fade evidence of the limita- Inni nnH hnnndaries of the Claim. I . ..t.,.. v. ; a -'.f intoi rn Mines' An Arizona Prospector Concerning Whom an Interesting Yarn is Told. Somewhere In the White mountains of Arizona, near the Indian reserva tion. Is a mineral field of wonderful richness. The location Is known to but one person, an old prospector named Williams, and he refuses to tell whore it Is. He pays it is within 40 rUttr. tr ih tnu n h i tJOncerillllK una Fays: it mav oe announceu ua n gen takes his gold und whence he obtains his supplies. He has thus far evaded those " ho have Fought to track him to his claim, and he frankly owns that eral rule that a patent is conclusive evidence as to the limits of a location, and It cannot be assailed by Bhowlng boundaries were dlf- 1, hnnu in Veen his secret to himself ' that its Actual l.r l.v.j.. -. ... ..- , .!.. IV.J In h rertni nom iiium; ucmutu . that were there In a variance between the calls of the patent for courses and distance and the monuments specified therein, the monuments control, where the monuments are clearly ascertained." Since the land office has no juris diction after issuance of patent, inth.i event of a controversy the case must be passed upon by the courts. . The land department has no power to sum mon witnesses, take testimony or to perform any of the other functions for which courts are constituted, and therefore It h9 no Jurisdiction. When ever a contict arises over this new or der of the land oce, the courts will determine what lands were transferred by the government to the patentee by taking testimony as to the monuments on the ground. If it be found that the bearings and distances from certain mineral claims corners to lines of the land survey do not conform to the calls In the patent, then those bearings, and distances should be ignored, and the monuments outlining the location will define the position of the claim In ques tion. The whole matter only empha sizes the necessity for care when stak ing a mineral location to carefully set each post or monument, and to refer these posts or monuments to natural and Indestructible objects as far as possible. Trees are vry often used fo this purpose, but In time a tree, being destructible, may disappear or its identity be lost. Prominent rock outcrops are preferable, and where the lines of the land survey are accessible, they also should be used as reference.

Since Mr. Mc Kay, one of the bess, practical miners in the county has gone to work there he is opening up more values than ever expected.

The auburn-haired1 girl has leng been advised by her modiste to effect the pe culiar golden brown tints which match her Titian locks when purchasing new gowns and accessories. But now comes the fad of matching the hair througout mics entire toilet, and It is taken up with enthusiasm even by the "mouse- colored maids." Golden hair can be very prettily matched, though care must be taken to avoid any bright yellow, like butter cups or marsh marigolds, for they kill the gold In the hair. For corncol ored tresses a morning- hat trimmed with a yellowish fur on velvet, and somewhere on it a dull gold buckle? is quite the thing. Old ladles with white, or gray htir have realized how immensely becomlmr to them axe bonnets of precisely the sarrv? degTee of moonlight gray or, pep-per-and-salt. One girl of a prevailing tint of soft brown in eyes, hair and sun tanned fkin Is always a symphony In old Ivory. Her hat with sweeping feather, tulle stole, suede gloves, with shoes and stockings en suite, and gown of Ivory voile, all melt Into tones of her natural coloring like a rich carving or antique lvorv.
