PAIflE'S CELERY COMPOUNI Built up His "More Paine's Celery Compound has been sold id the city of Orubha for the last month than all other medicines put together. " So writes the leading wholesale drut house of the w st o the pro prietors of Paii e's Celery Com pound In October last a card from Hon. Frank E. Moores, the mayor of that city, was published in the Omaba J tee, in which he told of the great benefit Paine's Celer Cnnipoi(l Lad b-en to him. '"I regard it," he said, the most wonderful remedy I have ever tried for bu'lding up the system when once run down. " On account of Mayor Moires' great - popularity and well known standing-, the publication of bis card in the Bee instigated ibe Otuaba New, the Bee's principal competitor, to mike a canvass of druggists an 1 physicians in that city to tind out their experience with this and other remedies."' A few days later the News published almost, a page of opinions it had gathered- The physicians and druggists interviewed were absolutely una imous in sayirg that, of all prepared remedies, the one that had undoubtedl v, in their experience, ace mplished more than tm, tls rf KE', 0tt 1,2,8 Blown to Atoms.

Jobs Hare Hammond V.mrr-m e Probable Life of the Rand licet al Thirty lrar.-('arloi Facta Re garding the Diamond KInem Tbe Qn.ailsa of Labr. Tbe foi.'owing remarks on tbe re sources :;nd outlook of tbe Transvaal are extracted from an ad.lres Ueliv ered by Mr. John Uavs Hammond at Harvard and Yale. Tb farts set forth have an iitervstiuK boarinij ou tbe cur rent finance, commerce and history, says tbe New York Pot. Aside from the broad questions of the money mar ket involved in tb problems touebfd upon, the matters of American sup plies for the Transvaal and of tbe country's own Industrial aud political future depend very largely ou tbe de velopments now about to be wituessed ou tbe Witwatersrand. Mr. Hauiuioud spoke as follows: "Tb- Witwatersrand poldtjeld in the Transvaal is by far tbe most impor tant :ld mining district iu the world The Witwatersrand district is in its physical aspect radically "different from tbe usual conception of a mining coun ! try. It rather resembles a praziug country, where mining prospectors would pass by contemptuously as un coiijfrtnal to ore.' and In that respect tbe -'Urreui-e of gold in the Witwa tetsraiid district illustrates the truth or tbe adae that 'gold is where you find it 5old was first dis-vered in this district in the year 1SS.V It oc-cuin-d in what is called tbe banket, which i a coarse conglomerate deriv ing its name from its resemblance to an almond rrx-k candy called "banket by the I Mitch This nomenclature is about the sole contribution of tbe Imtcti to tte mining industry. "Tin se auriferous deposits are unioue in i lie liist'.My of gold mining and sre unparalleled iu respect to their re markable consistency and consequently commercial reliability. Tbe gold bear ing conglomerate beds are interstrati Bed with ted of quartzite and sand stone. The ore carries about $10 in gold per ton and is mined and treated metallurgical); by tbe usual nietbods of gold mining and milling. "Tbe principal mines extend east and west from tbe town of Johannesburg twenty-five miles in either direction. To give some idea of the magnitude of operations. I may state that about 100, 000 Kaffirs and over 10.000 white men are engaged directly in mining and that nearly 0.000 stamps are working night nnd day. crushing over 7,000,000 tons of ore annually. In order to ob tain the supply of ore for one year' output it Is necessary to excavatf eight miles of solid rock five feet in width find 4G0 feet in depth, besides the many thousands of feet of additional shaft sinking, etc The gold won as the re sult of this stupendous work is valued at about $7.",00O.0O0. Since 1886 these mines have yielded nearly $400,000,000 wor(j of gold. "Just previous to the beginning of the war tbe Witwatersrand mines were producing gold with a value of $100. 000.000 per annum, more than one-third of the world's output. The gold mines support a district of 100.000 white pop ulation besides contributing to the sup port of thousands of laborers in other countries engaged In the manufacture or supplies for this industry. "How long will these mines last?" "It is customary to speak of such ex tensive deposits as illimitable, but as an engineer I am denied tbe use of such convenient hyperbole and must endenvor to satisfy the curious by some reply more definite. But it is in deed a difficult question to answer, de pending as it does upon tbe depth to wbjcb mining can be profitably car ried on and upon tbe rapidity of ex ploitation as well. As to ultimate depths, the geological and mining con ditions in the Witwatersrand district are exceptionally favorable and admit of maximum depths. There is but lit tle water to interfere with deep min ing, it beina for the most part seepage snd is taken up from tbe upper hori zons. Also tbe increment of tempera ture with tbe depth is very low. tLere being only one degree of increment in temperature for 2in feet of depih. I have on other occasions expressed the opiniou that mining will be found feasi ble to a depth of about !0.io feet. As to rapidity of exploitation we min ing engineers of South Africa, chit-fly American engineers, pride ourselves iu holding tbe world's record In respect of speed in mining, and work that has taken centuries in the history of Eu ropean mining will be done in a decade under tbe conditions that obtain with os. Therefore when I speak of mining oct an area in the aggregate some thirty miles long to a vertical depth of two miles 1 must prepare you by these ! statements I have just made as to our ) capability to undertake rapid exploita tion. If I must hazard an expression of opinion, from which the element of guess, though unscientific, cannot be altogether dissociated. I would place the life of tbe Witwatersrand at thirty years. It may be a short life, but it wjl be a golden one. for within that period more than S3.000.000.00O of gold will have been extracted from the mines of that district, a sum more than double that of tbe entire production of California since Tts discovery." Regarding tbe diamond "sines' of South Africa, represented chiefly iu tbe great Oe Beers consolidation with its $3X000.000 capital. Mr. Hammond went on to say; "In tie OraB$-e Free State. La Um i that's all. No energy, no vim, no vigor, no ambition. The head aches, thoughts are confused, memory tils. Life becomes a round of work but half accom plished, cf eating that does not nourish, of sleep that fails to refresh and of resting that never rests. That's the beginning of nervous prostration.

Transvaa! and in t'ape Colony dia monds have already lev!i found in pay able quantities. By far the most iin Krtant diamond mines for South Af rica, ami indeed of the world, are t nose at Kiiuberley. a lout iT0 utiles ncrtb ot Cae Town. I tiumotids were discoer d there in PSiKt. They occur in tlif indurated mud of tbe craters of ex tinct volcanoes and vary in size from that of a pinbead to the great Jacgers foiiteiu diamond, of which 1 shall pres ently tell you. The present workings are from 1.200 to 1,000 feet in depth, located in what is called tbe neck ol these volcanoes. Tbe diamonds art mined very much as coal is mined, aft er which the diamondiferous rock is exposed to atmospheric agencies to in sure its disintegration, thereby facili tating the separation of the earthy ma terial from the diamonds in tbe subse quent process of washing. "All tbe mines of KimHerley are now under the ownership of tbe He Beers Consolidated company. This company employs about "2.O0O white men aud about 12.000 Kattirs at the mines and Indirectly supports a population of HO. 000 at the town of Kimlierley. The an nual production of the mines is from 2tXK).000 to 3.000.000 carats, having a vjfclue of aliout $20,000,000. This out put could be greatly increased, but is restricted so as to admit of the market absorbing tbe product without entail ing any reduction in tbe price of tbe diamond. The entire product of the diamond fields of South Africa to date that is. for a period of about thirty years is somewhat over fifteen tons in weight, having a value in excess of $500,000,000. A box about eight feet square would contain all these dia monds, tbe net result of mining over 100.000.000 tons of rock, besides the millions of tons of earth moved In exploratory and dead work. The life of the mines Is as yet indeterminable, but diamond mining in Kimberley un doubtedly will continue for many years to come. "The diamonds are sold to syndicates of diamond buyers at from $5 to $8 pet carat. The syndicates agree to tak the entire output of diamonds, regard less of size, at that price. In this Con nection. If you will excuse the digres sion. I might mention the history of tbf celebrated Jaggersfontein diamond This is the largest stone ever discov ered. weighing very nearly 1.000 carati in tbe rough (about half a pound avoir dupoisi. and is three and a half inchef long, about as large as an average goose egg. It is impossible to deter mine tbe value of a diamond of thii size. It Is of good color, but would not cut well. Diamonds lose from 4 to GO per cent of their size in cutting Some idea of its value, however, might be suggested by the fact that a dia mond of only ISO carats was sold t few years ago by the De Beers com pany for $750,000. and diamonds, as yot know, increase greatly in value witl increase of size. As yet there are n bidders for this 'white elephant." Tbf Jaggerfontein diamond which I hav Just described was found July 1803 at 3 o'clock, after firing one blast." Commenting recently on the facts set forth in bis address. Mr. Uammonc made this additional remark: "It will be several months, bowever, before there is an adequate supply of labor for tbe mines. The number ot workmen needed is 12.000 whites and 100.000 Kaffirs. The pay of tbe Kaffir Is SO cents a day and bis board. White labor cannot possibly compete with black labor In the mines. Owing to tb low grade of the ore the mines conld not be worked at a profit were white labor employed. But there is any amount of opportunity in tbe mining district for skilled white labor. Mining firemen, machinists, drill men and car penters are greatly needed. "A considerable quantity of machin ery will be required in the future. Most of tbe machinery will undoubted ly come from this conntry. but the mar ket will be greater and more profitable when transportation facilities are increased.
