Among many owners of properties there exists u certain antipathy to iboudiog tbe -claims. As against a certain class ikis antipathy is well founded. In every camp are men who seek to obtain Oko -control of properties, by bond or otherwise, who havu no money themselves, neither can they command any. This class should be left severely alone. On the other hand, we have men -who desire to purchase property. for themselves or to find a purchaser, cos will consummate wuat tney Out: take. These men, when they do un dertake an enterprise of this kind, wish to be in a position whereby if they accomplish anything that they may haye the benefit of their efforts. Such men should be encouraged. Owners should deal liberally with thom. They will find it to their in terest to do so. A reasonable length of time should be given them in which to take the property them selves or for a purchsaer. No exor bitant "bunuB," as it is termed, or even none at all shonldbe demanded. .Most owners of mining property ex pect to realize on the sale of a prop erty, not from its production, many of them being too poor to place it on a productive basis. When the right kind of a man i found, who is willing io spend his time and money in consummating a sale, that should be considered suffi cient bonus for him to risk, while the owner should regard the chances of a sale sufficient consideration for giving such a man control of the property. It is to the interest of all to enl'st in any mining camp the aid of out side capital. It is the only way whereby a large number of proper ties can bo placed UDnn a paying basis, thus giving that prosperity vhich can only bo secured by a large production of ore. So long as men will stand m their own light by not placiug themselves in the proper po sition to consummate a sale to capi talists, just so long will they fail to realize anything from thoir proper ties; just so long will we have unpro ductive properties which a little out side aid would make productive. We do not wish to be understood as ad vising a reckless bonding of claims to any man that presents himself, but if the right man does do not hesitate to give him a chance, there by adding to your own chances of wealth as well as to the prosperity of the camp. San Miguel Journal. Iron Ore. There is only one place in Califor nia, one place in Oregon and one in Washington Territory where iron ore is mined, This is rather owing to lack of suitable fuel in proximity to the ore than to lack of ore, as that has been found at a number of places where' it is notyet utilized. The only iron mine being worked here in this State is Et Hotaling, Placer Co. The mine produced 4,500 tons of first class iron in 1881. In 1882, 990 tons were made when a disastrous fire destroyed the works. They were rebuilt, and production is now going on, most, of the iron being consumed here. The Pnget Sound mine in Washington Territory has one fur nace. They employ about 225 men. The Oawego Iron Co. employs about 400 to 500 men. This company is controlled by the Northern Pacifio &iiroad. Co-, most, at the iron prodno d being -held for the requirements of tho'road. Iron is brought to this -city 'from England on returning grain -vessels at comparatively low ates-of freight, considering the distance; and while lihe-consumption is heavj, the xrices paid for the crude metal aro by no means exorbitant. Iron ore is now mined in twenty-five States and Ter- ritories. as 'follows: Maine, a ermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Now sZork, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, NDrth iCarolina, Geonria, Alabama, West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Missouri, Texas, Colorado, California, .Oregon, Utah and Washington. Very large deposits are found near' Lake JSuperiorin Michigan and Wisconsin ; near Lake Champlain, in New Works in Southeastern Missouri; in North ern JNew Jersey, ana at uernwan, Lebanon eounty, Pennsylvania. These are the principal sources of iron ore supply in the United States. Bctara ef tho Great Cem.t of 1812. "The discovery of another comet, by Prof. Brooks, of the Rochester Observatory, N. Y., was recently An nounced. Careful observation has since shown that this is the famous comet of 1812, whose return was pre - dieted for this year by the astronom ers of 1812. The comet of that year was visible to the naked eye for the period of ten weeks. It is again rap idly approaehi&g both the sun and the earth, and will be visible to the naked eye in a few weeks. The com et has been observed by MrJHill at the Daridsoa Observatory, un , this ' mass with a scar-like nucleus of the eleventh magnitude. Its appearance is very faint, so much so that a star of the eleventh magnitude near by presented a comparatively dazzling appearance. A few evenings after the discovery of this comet by Prof. Brooks, Prof. Swift, of tho same observatory, and director thereof, discovered another comet in the same noiguborhooci. The indications are that these two comets will cross each other's orbits in their progress towards tho sun. Their appearance so near togethor in the same field is considered as some thing surprising and significant. It is thought by Bome that they may throw new light upon the origin of comets and the laws by which they are governed. Both comets are being observed with much interest at all the American observatories. Death of a Great Inventor. Charles William Siemens, the sci entist, engineer and electrician, died of rupture of the heart, in London, November 20th, aged 60. The de ceased, ten days ago, received a fall, tbe effects of which caused his death. Charles William Seimens was boin at Lenthe, Germany, on April 4, 1823. After completing his educa tion at Gottingen, he entered the Stolborg Machine Works, and in 1843 settled in London as a civil en gineer. With his brother Werner he carried on bis investigations in elec tro magnetism, and made several im portant improvements in the manu facture of submarine cables,, and the mode of securing their insulation. The firm of Seimens Brothers his constructed many of the most im portant existing submarine telegraph lines, and has the contract for the new Bennett-Mackay cable. The Seimens Brothers' regenerative gas furnaco and rotary furnace are of great use in the manufacture of steel. By the Seimens process the celebrated Landore mill steel is pro duced, hundreds of thousands of tons of which are annually manufactured. Among the other inventioas of Dr. Seimens and his brother, with whom he was always immediately associ ated, are the water meter, an econ omical steam engine, a method of gold and silver plating, tho process of anastatic printing, the double cylinder air-pump, the chronometric governor, the hydraulic brake to prevent the recoil of artillery on ships, and many other scientific in struments. But the invention with which Dr. Siemens' name has most recently been associated is the Sie mens electric light, which is exten sively used in England and on the continent of Europe, especially in Pans. Dr. Siemens has held many honorary positions, and stood in the verv front rank of electricians. He was made a doctor of civil law by Oxford University in 1869, One of Lincoln's Stories. Secretary Lincoln has enough of his father's nature to enable him to make good stories and to tll thom well. When he was in Chicago with President Arthur he, with a nurabei of other -gentlemen, was enjoying an aftor dinner chat, when he told this story. 'illustrative of tho craze in Chi cago for entering the plea of self- defense: Three men quarreled in a room above a saloon, when one of them fell Sead from 'heart disease. The others were fehrful that they would be charged with murder; so one went to the saloon and enticed the -bartender out while, the other carried tho corpse down and placed it in a chair, wtth its head on a table, as if sleeping off a drunk. When the bartender returned the two raei took a drink, saying that the drunken man in the chair would pay for it, and went away. The bartender soon shook his customer and demanded his pay. The corpse fell over on tfhe floor and as tho bartender stood trembling with fear the two men re turned with an officer. The bartender: anticipatiog&is arrest, quietly -said, "He struck me first." Always ask for Ike Editor. Above all things remember that tbe only way to get anything printed is to see the editor personally. Editors don't go by the matter in a manu script. They go by the looks of the writer. Besides that, time hangs very heavily on the hands of people around newspaper offices, and it is difficult to see what would become of them if would-be contribute did not call oiace im a while to talk a'out their ar ticles or play checkers. Be careful, howt'C in ascending to the editorial rooms tofapi'adole-acting snrino' steri which is alwav?f"nie- where along the stairs, nd turns over, landing victims in ibe cellar.

The Swimmers Discovery. At one time Capt. Webb was in charge of a coasting vesel which sailed for Lapland. He noticed that while he stood shivering on deck, wrapped in furs and flannel, the Laps would go out into tho ice cold water and remain there for hours. There was the secret he was after. How was it that they oonld stand the cold so much better than he could? He determined to learn the secret, and dreading sickness sent the vessel home in charge of tha first officer. He lived with this people for six mouths, studied their diot, their u.cthod of living, and lived as they lived. He t.hen returned to England, and remained for two years on the east coast of England, existing upon blubber and the skins of fish. He has learned the secret of maintaining his normal temperature and keeping the blood iu the veins and arteries in nearly the same state of richness in the water. He found no more blue veins, no more chilis. He outwitted the doctors, and discovered, or at least utilized, a scientific fact, Corr. Boston Herald. How to Loosex a Tight Screw. One of the simplest and readiest methods of loosening a rusted screw is to apply heat to the head of tho screw. A small bar or rod of iron, fiat at the end, if reddened in the tire and applied for a couple or three minutes to the head of tho rosty screw, will, as soon as it heats the screw, reader its withdrawal as easy by the screw driver as if it was only a recently inserted screw As there is a kitchen poker in every house, that instrument, if heated a' its extremity and applied for a few minutes to the head of the screw or screws, will do the work of loosening and' an ordinary screw-driver will do the rest, without causing the least damage, trouble or vexation of Bpirit. In all work above the common kind where it is necessary to use screws, and particularly in binge work and mountings,f ancy fastenings and appliances affixed to joinery or furniture work, we would advise the oiling of serews or the dipping their points in grease before driving them. This will render them more easy to drive and also to withdraw, and it will undoubtedly retard for a longer time the action of rusting. Bosky Mountain Mining Eetnaw. IS AliUM POISONOUS? Dr. HallVJournal cf Health, -in recent issue, sayff: Iras question has causea a good deal of discussion. Alum is used by many bakers to whiten their bread, enabling them to use an inferior flour, iEt'is more extensivelv employ ed as acheap substitute for cream of tartar in the manufacture of baking powders. It has not beon consider ed immediattoly dangerous; although if continued it induces dyspepsia and obstinate constipation. But the fact that many cases of poisoning have occurred from baking powders which contained alum, puts the ques tion in a morj serious aspect, and prudent people will exercise caution in tho selection of baking powders. "Under what conditions, then, does this substance formerly used only for mechanical or medicinal purposes become poisonous? ,They ao cer tainly obscure, and at present we can only surmise what they may be. We suspect that the cause exists in the individual poisoned; some peculiari ty of the constitution producing a morbid change in the secretions of the stoniac-h, with which the alum, combines and tforms an active poison-; or the secretions may bs health v but in an unusual proportion, in combination with tbe alum, consti tute poisoo. "For example, two parts of mer cury and two parts of chlorine form calomel, which is not poisonous; but change the proportions to one part of mercury and two parts of chlorine and we get corrosive sublimate, which is a deadly poison. "Then, again, we know rrothing of the cause of constitutional peculiar ities. Why is it that one person can eat all kinds of green fruits and veg etables with . impunity, while the same course might cost another indi vidual his life? One person can SAdle poison ivy and sumac with out befng in ixjIfBiBtaffected; an j other is poisoned if he approaches to within ten feet of them. Out' of a family residing in a malarial district, some of th inombers will suffer half the year with fever and ague, while the others will enjoy excellent health during the entire year. Foods tnat are wholesome to some persons are actually poisonous to others. This is especially true of some kinds of fish. There is no safety in taking alum into the stomach, as it is shown to be always injurious, and often dangerous. Baking powders proper ly compounded, and containing pure cream of tartar instead of alum, are more convenient than yeast; and bread and pastry made with them are just as wholesome, and far more palatable. Wo are in entire sym pathy with the manufacturers of the Royal Baking Powder who com menced and are vigorously conduct ing the war against the use of alnm in baking powders. "Before committing ourselves, however we made tests of a sufficient number of baking powders to satisfy ourselves that the substitution of alum for cream of tartar in their composition has not ben overesti mated, while a careful examination of the Royal Baking Powder con firms our belief that Dr. Mott, the Government Chemist, when he singled out and commended this powder for its wbolesomeness, did it wholly in the interests of the public. "We do not hesitate to say that the Royal Baking Powder people deserve the gratitude of tbe commu nity whom they are endeavoring to protect. "Will not some prominent manu facturer of pure Candies follow their example, and exposo the secrets of a business t'aat is doing untold mis chief to little children!" A Cincinnati firm had for years kept in a drawer all the counterfeit money received in the course of busi uess, and the other night a burglar gofc in and took every cent. It is supposed the bnrglar will write an indignant communication to tbe preBB upon the subject as soon as he calms sufficiently to handle a pan. Chica Herald. The many veins of low grade ore and the minerals, such as copper, zinc and iron which the miner may now oonBider a disadvantage, will, at some time in the development ol this industry, prove to be the most valua ble products of the mine. The wise miner should therefore mark the lo calities wherein these minerals occur, as the time is not far distant when tho demand will make them profita ble. Rockv Mountain Mininsz Re view. I. J.
