W. Sf CjLARK,
Treatment of JLow Grade res.
"A succesful and profitable method
of treatment of low grade ores," says
the Mining Review, "which are pre
valent in many parts of the country,
and may be found to a greater or less
extent in the mines of every district,
is one of the most imperative needs
at the present time cf mining in
dustry. Necessity is the fertile mother of
invention, and there is no question
but when it becomes necessary to
utilize these low grade ores to meet
an imperative demand, some process
will be found ready to successfully
solve the important problem. This
is made doubly sure from the fact
that in the field which is wide and
extended, and at a time when ores of
a high grade are easily found in large
quantities, rapid improvements are
being tested by practical work and
trial, and many substantial steps in
the right direction have already been
found worthy of adoption.
It is possible that a mistake has
been made by mining men in at
tempting to perform too much, and
that a large proportion of the losses
in mining enterprises may be traced
to the effort to mine, mill and treat
ores at the mine, when it might be
found more profitable to divide this
work and not attempt to do it all
It is well Known that the iarmer is
content to produce his crops and put
them upon the market; and a mill on
a farm for the purpose of grinding
the wheat into flour is never seen.
The question of making mining
and milling two separate and distinct
industries is one worthy of considera-
1110.it
proiuao:
ion. kjuo or tun
metlioaa oi treating low grauo ores
at the present time-, will doubtless be
found in the direction of concentra
tion, so that the cost of transporta
tion may be materially reduced. At
the present high rates of transporta
tion it is not a wise policy to pay for
the cost shipment of worthless rock
which is not available for any pur
pose whatever.
Mining and concentrating, where
necessary, would doubtless bring
better results in a majority of cases,
at least until more extensive develop
ments had proven something of the
magnitude oi the work to be done.
Tne mining industry of the coun
tiy would to-day show vastly better
results if the money expeuded for
mills had been put into the mines.
Agriculture would have been ruined
long ago. and the fields turned into
a waste of desolation, if every farmer
had commenced operations with the
idea that every farm must support
its own grist mill, saw mill, loom
and forge, to fit its produqt for the
market
The establishment of smellers uea.i
ihe mines and extensive and com
plete refineries in the market centers
where the mine products must be
sold, indicates the future separation
of the two industries of mining and
iuiiling, and also insures bettor re

all interested in the development of
our mineral resources for the pro
duction of bullion.
A ISMA HOI.
his friends took a seat by his bedside
took hold of his pulse,and as he open
ed his eyes the friend said: "Now
don't exert yourself, and don't try
to talk. The doctor says you will be
alright if you remain quiet." The
victim of the joke opened his eyes
and was going to ask what was the
matter, when he found his mouth
held together by court plaster, and
his voice sounded like that of a man
with a hare-lip asking someone to go
to tho devil. By this time one of the
jokers 4was having trouble to keep
from laughing, so ho put a handker
chief to his face, sobbed, and said
'My God, boys, this is horrible!" At
this the Oshkosh villain said, hope
fully: "Don't be discouraged, my boy
we will pull you through, if you do
not get excited. I have cured worse
cases." Then he took a pair of scis
sors and cut the court-plaster that
held tho lips together, and said
"Tuere,Jiow do you feelnow? Don't
talk much, but don't youjieel rellov
ed?" Tho victim looked at the doc
tor. ana at me boys who were pic
turesquely sta nding around the bed
and said: "Doc, for God's sake, what
has happened to me?" The doctor
told him to be quiet, and then whis
pered to him : "You have had the
worst fight that a man ever had an d
lived. A man attacked you on "Wells
Street, with a view of robbing you,
and you defended yourself, but it
was a hard struggle. Mr. Drury,
please ghand me that hand-glass.
Thoro, you can see for yourself,
There is a contusion of the brain,
tho eyes are discolored, and I thought
youv jaw was broken, but as you can
talk I guess it is only fractured
Don't tail:." The-victim took a Ion
look at himself, and the first thin
ho said was: "Is the other fellow
alive?" It was all the boys could do
to keep from bursting, but they kept
sober faces, and the doctor said the
other fellow was alive, but ho was
the worst used up man he ever sewed
up. He said one arm was broken,
and one eye gouged out, and his face
looked as if a pile-driver had struck
him. The victim smiled a satisfied
smile as he heard how he had whip
ped the other fellow, and then the
boys asked him if he had any massage
to send home. He took tho mirror
and looked at himself again, and then
said: ''Telegraph for my wife." That-
was too much , and the boys roared,
and the doctor tore off iho court
plaster from his nose, another fellow
brought a wet towel and the paint
was washed off, and when ho was
clean tho boys handed him tho mir
ror, and he looked at himself again,
and then he sr.w it was a joke, and he
wanted to kill some of them. Peck's

A BIG BAS.
At the recent veteran's reunion in
Chicago was Theo. 11. Davis, the ar
tist of Harper's Weekly, who was all
through the war. There was one of
the Chicago veterans who sometimes
took in a little too much wet stuff,
and who was a little excitable when
full. The visiting, the music, the
marching, the cheering, and tho ex
citement of the reunion, had made
him feel quite excitod, and he wanted
to fijjht his battles over again, but
the boys kej t him quiet, and finally
got him to bed, and soon he slept
like a log. The boys were in the
room telling stories, when some one
called attention to the sleeping com
rade, and m a second au idea occur
red to Davis, the artist. He went to
his room and got his water color
paint, and brushes, and some court-
plaster. Pretty soon the artist was
at work with his soft camel's hair
brushes. Ho first painted two black
eyes, then he painted a swelling on
one cheek, and on the forehead he
painted what looked as though a
sledge-hammer had smashed in the
skull, and left the brain oozing out.
Then the artist took somo strips of
court-pi aster, and stuck one across
the painted broken nose, and another
across the mouth, sealing both lips,
and the boys stood back to look at
tho stricken man, and wait for the
Qourt-plaster to dry. The boys got a
trange veteran from Oshkosh to per
sonate a doctor. After a little the
ieejper began to'wako up, and one of
In the Bank of California yesterday
on the floor in front cf tho counters,
was displayed a very tempting ob
ject in tho shape of a gold bar, weigh
ing 5ili pounds, and valued at tho
sum of 31M,000. Tho dimensions of
tho bar are, fifteen inches in length,
seven inches deep, and six inches
broad. The gold is the result of a
twenty days' run in the North Bloom
field Hydraulic Mine, in Nevada
County. It is the largest ever cast
in the United States, and, as far as
known, in the world, and as two cru
cible moulds had to be used in tne
casting, the mystery is how such a
perfect and smooth bar could be
turned out. Quite a number of peo
ple, who came for a look, were told
they could have the bar if they would
carry it away. It is useless to add
the bar is there still. S. F. Call.
Ho Apologises. "Do you mean to
call me a liar?" asked one rival rail
road man of another railroad man,
during a dispute on business they
had on Austin avenue yesterday
"No, colonel, I don't mean to
you a liar. On the contrary, I
you are the only man in town
tells tne truth all tho time, but
offering a reward of twenty-five
lars and a chromo to any other
the darkness, said it looked like rain
and ho had bettor be going.
On tho international train that left
yesterday for San Antonio there was
a negro who kept sticking his head
out of the window. "Keep your head
inside," said the conductor, angrily.
"Whaffor?" "For fear you will dam
age some of tho iron work of the
bridge, you fool."
