It is plain to be seen that Los
Angeles county is the represent
ative county of Southern Califor
nia, and tho emporium of Los
Angeles county and Southern
California is Los Angeles City,
centrally located therein ; also
centrally located in the best val

Important Mining Operation.
We are in receipt of the prospectus
of the Potosi Mining and Smelting
Company of Cerro Gordo.an incorpora
tion formed for developing the mining
interests in that district. The imme
diate object of tlie company is to run
a tunnel into the west side of the
Cerro C-ordo mountain, cutting the
entire system of mines that have
heretofore been worked or that may
be discovered during its construction.
The tunnel is desigued to lie nine feet
in width, eight feet in height, and
4,400 feet in length, cutting tlie Igna
cio mine at 210 feet below the surface,
the Alpha at 240 feet, the San Benito
at 4.12 feet, the First Lead Mine at 570
feet, the Second Lead Mine at 008 feet,
tlte Santa Maria at SIG feet, tlie Union
and Jefferson at 1,044 feet, the Buena
Vista at 2,140 feet below the outcrop.
It will contain a double railroad track
and its primary design will be to fur
nish a meansof egress for the mines
which it intersects, besides giving
them a better ventilation and increased
supply of water. It is also expected
that blind lodes will be developed in its
construction that will furnish no in
considerable profit to the company.
The principal revenue of the Potosi
tunnel will be the transportation of
ores from the company's own mines
to their reduction works; and also of
ores from tlie mines already opened
on the proposed line, for which will be
charged one dollar per ton. This
source of revenue is almost unlimited,
as the mines are inexhaustible, it is
estimated that the receipts for water
cannot be less than $50 per day.
The total cost of the tunnel will be
about $100,000. The capital stock of
the company is $5,000,000, divided
into fifty thousand shares of $100 each.
The property of the company consists
ofthe Potosi Tunnel, and Tunnel Site,
located in February, 1871; the Alpha
Tunnel, and Tunnel Site, and the Al
pha, Franklin, ami Omega Silver
Lodes, located in 1868, When the
i'oliisi Tunnel is completed, the pros
pectus estimates the net profit to the
company, from mining alone, at 5109,
--200 per month.
In concluding, the report says: The
Potosi Mining and Smelting Company
oilers one of the safest investments,
for the amount of proposed cost, that
can possibly be offered. Tlie tunnel
will cut several of the most extensive
and valuable mines in the world, at a
depth varying from 300 to 2,200 feet
below the outcrop, and will form the
cheapest possible outlet for these ores.
The company's mine heretofore men
tioned can immediately be placed on
a paying basis. The entire works will
cost as above $97,009 20, or in round
numbers $100,000. They can be com
pleted within two years, and when
complete, cannot fail to produce a
very large revenue for generations.
This is perhaps the most important
mining operation which lias ever
been projected in Southern California,
and its successful accomplishment/,
which seems well assured, will greatly
promote the interests of our section,
The Cerro Gordo mines have almost
an exhaustless supply of richly pay
ing ore. Hitherto the system of oper
ating these mines lias been the most
primitive in character, the hoisting
from many of the shafts being done
entirely by manual labor. With the
increased facilities for mining which
this new project will inaugurate, and
the cheap and rapid transportation
which will be supplied by the con
struction of tbe Los Angeles and Inde
pendence Railroad, we may expect
tlie products ofthe Cerro Gordo mines
to double and treble within tlie next
three years.
Professor Denton's Fifth Lecture.
Tho attendance last night at Prof.
Denton's lecture was considerably bet
tor than that ofthe previous evening,
there being more ladies present, we
think, than at any former lecture.
The Professor began by saying that al
though the granite formation is the
oldest, we have granite of recent form
ation—it is forming now. The meta
morphie formations go hack long be
fore the period of animal life, yet there
were metamorphic rocks formed long
after animals existed. No place on
earth contains all tlie formations
shown on the chart. Neither are they
found now lying in the order named.
The chart represents them in the order
in which they were formed. In the
changes that havo taken place it is
proven that eleven thousand feet of
rocks have been worn oil' in places—
tlie highest mountains have been worn
down to plains. These remarks are
necessary and introductory to my lec
ture to-night, which is the tertiary
period, or the age of mammals. There
are eleven orders of these. First, two
handed mamma s — man the repre
sentative; second, four-hand mam
mals—monkeys the representatives;
third, insect devoureis—tlie hedgehog;
fifth, the carniveran—the cat and dog;
sixth, the cretaca, the whale, por
poise, etc.; seventh, the pachyder
niatas, elephants, etc.; eighth, the
buminanchi, ox. sheep, etc.; ninth,
MAP OF OUR BACK COUNTRY.
Rodentine, gnawing animals, squir
rels, etc.; tenth, edentator, animals
of no teeth; eleventh, marsupulia,
Douched animals. He then spoke of
the difference of families, genii and
species In treating of mammals, and
dwelt upon them at length. He
pointed tint the tertiary formations
in various parts of the earth. We find
these fossil animals in this formation.
The serpent appears for the first time
hero. Scientists knew but little until
recently of this period. Comparative
anatomy lias come to the aid of the
scientist to bring into form and re
store to their original shape the mil
lions of bones found belonging to this
period, although differing so materi
ally from those wf their age. The Pa
cific coast was all under water then;
first the Sierras rose and the eastern
part of this State, while the western
part of California was still under
water. Four hundred species of fossil
remains have been found in one bed
in Alabama. Tropical fruits have
been found in New England showing
that this locality must have been as
warm then as in Southern Florida
at that time. Only six per cent, of
modern shells are found iv the first
tertiary formation, forty percent, in
the middle and from seventy to ninety
percent, in tlie last or highest. He
dwelt upon the interesting country we
inhabit, and dwelt upon the impor
tance of a knowledge of geology to us
and our children. Some ofthe South
ern States, Colorado, Nebraska, and
other portions of our country contain
immense quantities of these fossils.
The number and forms, too, very
great. Seventeen species of fossil
horses have been found on this conti
nent, differing from ours; yet not a
horse existed in America when the
Spanish came here. One of the most
remarkable spots on earth is in Utah
Territory, lie there found sixty or
seventy fossil insects new to the geol
ogist. Wheat and the rose is found
iv this highest tertiary forma
tion for the first time. The earth
is evidently being prepared for man.
Bight hundred species of insects are
found iv ■Germany. Nin%ty-eighl dis
tinct species of plants in northern
Europe, which only now grow in trop
ical clime. The mastodon, the largest
animal known, lived in this age. He
had tusks fourteen feet long, feet a yard
long. His tail must have been'two
feet in diameter at the body, and his
thigh bone three times the size of the
largest elephant. Tlie Professor here
painted in fancy some of the terrible
scenes that must have transpired on
land and in the water by these terrible
monsters, just as the Professor can iv
his glowing manner.
His next lecture to-night is, "The
Age of Man, or the Advent of Hu
manity." We hope the people of Los
Angeles will give him a large audience
on this, the last occasion which the
learned gentleman will give us to lis
ten to him on this interesting subject.
Tho Grange Store.
We clip the following from tho
Mutual Aid for July, just issued. Tho
statement comes from an official
source, and may be relied upon as cor
rect. It gives a more comprehensive
idea of the status ofthe enterprise and
its objects than we have yet presented
to our readers:
The Grange Co-operative Company
has established its main store iv i.os
Angeles, on Main street, between Sec
ond and Third streets, and have com
menced a strictly cash business. The
trade starts out under favorable BUS*
pices and averages at the rate of about
$3,000(1 month. If a credit system were
adopted this trade would be more than
doubled, but goods could not be sold
as low as they are at present. The
capital of the Company at present is
very limited and it is absolutely neces
sary to adhere strictly to a cash trade.
Experience will show the Company
what it is best to do in the future.
The General Manager now has on
hand a full stock of groceries which
are being sold to stockholders at from
lv to 10 per cent, below the ordinary
retail prices heretofore prevalent in
this country. To persons who are not
Stockholders, goods are being sold at
prices much lower than those in vogue
elsewhere. Thus far about one-half
of tbe trade is to persons who are not
stockholders anil both goods and pri
ces give general satisfaction to all.
The company regrets that it was
unable to get in operation in time to
furnish grain sacks for the grain crop
in the south end of the county, but
the officers have done their best to
meet the wants and have the satisfac
tion of knowing that they will be pre
pared to meet any emergency another
season. Notwithstanding this delay
large quantities of sacks are being sold.
Arrangements have been made by
the General Manager for the shipment
of grain aud farm produce. (Stock
holders anil others should consult
Mr. Seymour before disposing of
their produce elsewhere. All kinds
of farm implements will bo pur
chased by tlie company for those
giving it their orders,' stockhold
ers receiving tlieir implements at as
near as possible to wholesale prices.
More capital is needed. There are
hundreds of Gsjmgers yet in Eos An
geles and San Bernardino counties
who have not yet subscribed to the
stock of the company) and they
should do so at once so as to give the
General Manager more funds with
which to operate. There are also a few
who have subscribed to the stock of
tho company who have not as yet
made their first payment of five dol
lars per sbare and taken their stock.
Such persons should respond at once
and thus help tlie movement.
A lunre amount of tho trade at the
store is now with those who arc not
stockholders. A large city trade will
soon be built up which will furnish a
good market for the farm products.
The surplus products will besbipped
to San Francisco so as not to allow the
market hero to become glutted if pos
sible.
Joe Murphy Last Night.
Tlie first of Murphy's series of en
tertainments in Los Angeles met with
a rousing response from our citizen's
last night. Tho audience was the
largest which we have ever seen
in Turners' Hall, every available
I pace being occupied. The proceeds
from the house doubtless reached a
thousand dollars. Tlie entertainment
was what Murphy's playing always
proves—immense. The minor char
acters were all well sustained and cap
ital hits were made throughout. If
you want to laugh and laugh again
and keep it up for two hours or more
go and hear Murphy to-night.

PIPIFAX.
This remarkable curative herbal
preparation Is entirely unlike nnd greatly
superior to any oilier recuperant ever dis
covered.
It Strengthens the living vital nervaurie
principle, and gives energy to the muscles,
nerves, filaments, membranes, and all tissues
of Ihe internal organs.
PIPIFAX — Keeps the skin in a supple
condition; the cuticle pliant; the pores open;
and brings the blood to the surface; thereby
enabling the system lo counteract these bane
fill atmospheric influences.
PIPIFAX—Parses through the blood, car
ries off by presplratlon and oilier excretions
the effete and injurious materials ofthe body.
It is soothing, alterative and del'urative. Used
methodically and rationally, aided by suita
ble diet, it produces most important changes
in the system, contributing tt the reconstruc
tion of tissues, and removes vitiated matter
which has become not only useless but inju
rious. No other article has ever been intro
duced which combines in such nn exlraordi
nary degree tho principles of an efficient anti
bilious agent and tonic. Try it and be i ,n
