HE PHOSPHATE BEDS OF BEAUFORT ; I I i lis Great Indus try of the South Carolina Coast—The iirotherhooil Dredge. The phosphate beds make the great in- i nstry of Jieaufort, ns of most of the coast oathwest of Stone ferry; and as all the egroes average i-T a day in cash earnings, r can do so if they want to work, their eneral condition is good. A satisfactory xplauation of these phosphate deposits as not been worked out, and it is some liing of a problem, as the geology of "tali Carolina jumps ail the intermediate ■gea between nrcliæan and tertiary. In he piedmont section of the state the azoic ucks stand ont sharp and abrupt from 1 he hills and line the channels of the many right and swiftly flowing streams of that egion. A little further down the slope he drift covers these rocks, and they are! till there;and the cxeavations at Columbia 1 ring out a horde of blue and decked : limite. A little lower, there is, in popu- ! r language, "no bed-rock." At Orange urg they bored l,loo feet for artesian : ater, and found drift all the way down lay, sand, and marl. .Still coming down the slope, one readies , point where the sand has traveled so far j rom its original matrix in the Blue ridge J hat it is completely triturated, and the j Tls have no consistency'. Along this line, ; t an average distance of perhaps sixty : iles from the eoast, is a line of sand hills ! •hich seem to have been shaped by the I ind and below them is the broad, flat, j engrail) unhealthful. "low country/' •here the purple and chocolate-colored ! beams flow sluggishly over slimy hot ms, bet ween muddy banks shrouded by efuneral moss, And yet on the sea ard side of this tract, in the bottom of he creeks and inlets, but occasionally ex nding a long distance inland, is the plios hate rock. It was known to be of some value as ly as 1850, but nothing was done to evelop it until the reconstruction legisla te of 1808 chartered a company to work • Since then the companies have paid a yalty to the state for all they took out of avigable waters or from state land, and 'year the state received 81 <5,00b from at source. As much was taken from rivate lands, the yield must have ex ceded "00,000 tons. The supply is practi illy iuexhaustible, as the strata wherever ierced are over twenty' feet thick; and in j any places it is known that successive 1 rata is superimposed with dirt between, 'hen lirst mined the rock is dark gray or early black; after being washed and found it is a lighter gray. The com ercial article sell at #8 to $0 per ton, und : is expected that the total yield of the ! 'te this year will be worth over *1,500, A great impulse has been given the work tely by the Brotherhood dredge—the in ention of Samuel Brotherhood—which es up the rock by' thirty'-six iron scoop uckets, running on axles, somewhat in j ne style of the endless platform of a liorse "'er. in the original rock are sharks' eeth and flsli bones of many kinds, which, ; suppose, with the phosphate of lime, ake it valuable us a fertiliser. In front I "here I write are two steam dredges at i V, : ucr °ss the point are extensive °rks on the land, and elsewhere in the j lace are large establishments. A few Throes still follow the old system of wad in tlie shallow creeks and carrying out nch detached pieces of the rock as they ® n handle. — ,l Parke" In Chicago Times.

One day while ridhs througli a canon he was shot through the shoulder and fell from his horse. Ills - ,, sailants, Unding that he was not dead tortured him outrageously. They ,-nt' gashes in his lace and ail over hisbodv applied lire to his feet and hands, and ended their brutality by scalping him. lie suffered untold agonies, ami prayed tint' death might relieve him. Finally he fell into a taint, and upon awakening he found himself being kindly eared for in a miners cabin. The miner had picked lum up and carried him a long distance on horseback. Xeff suffered weeks of excru ciating pain and raved with a fever, and as soon ns he was able to travel lie took the road for home. A reporter asked Xeff how it felt to have Ins hair lilted. y* "It is a dreadful sensation," he said One thinks, as the skin is being torn *rom Oie skull, that his feet are coinin<' right up through his body to the top oT his head. Oh. it is terrible. It is so pain ful that you can not utter a cry; thousands ot stars dance before your eyes. You imagine ml-hoi nmlles are dart ing in and out of your Itcsa, and you clasp your hands so Ciosely that the linger nails cut iuto the fiesh. 1 would rather he run SäH»:!";I|HALL, other ordeal. It makes me shudder to think of the tortures i have gone through with, and i never want to look upon the face of another Indian." "I)o many persons survive the opera tion?" interrupted the reporter. "No: I have only heard of two or three men besides myself who have lost their hair by the scalping knife and then live to tell of it." "Do yon think the hair will ever grow' "Ä sliall have . ,„„t ; up there. The skin was torn off tor a I space of four inches square, and I'm afraid it will never heal entirely. Even if it does heal over the bare place will always be so painful that 1 can not touch it. I keep my head tied up in cotton and sweet oil. Ton can see my beauty lias been entirely marred. These frightful gashes across my face will go with me to the grave. Chicago (Cal.) Chronicle. Salting «I* the l-'iinioiiit Chrysolite. I have seen mines salted when the best of them were fooled. A man they call "Chicken Bill" salted the famous Chryso lite. in Lead ville, and sold it to Tabor for, 1 think, 810,000. lie worked days anil weeks on it, and Anally hod it lixeti to his satisfaction. Then Tabor was approached, and, not trusting any one else, went down into tlie shaft himself. He hml been in mines twenty years, ami was well qunli iied to act as his own expert. I le was im pressed with the property and bought it, but the vein was small and be concluded to go lower, lie had only sunk ten feet further when lie struck tlie bonanza, and tile property was immediately recognized a..- being worth millions. The salting was not noticed until later, and Tabor was so impressed with it that instead of having the man arrested and scute tired to the penitentiary, lie began to stake him, und bas him in his employ to day. While prospecting for Tabor lie dis covered the Turn O'SImuter, another rich -trike. But while there is suiting, ihere is not as much of it as formerly. There have been numerous instances where it has not been proliiuble. For instance, if "Chicken Bill" had used less ingenuity and les- time, and sunk His shaft ten feet further, he m-iead of Tabor would have struck tlie bonanza, and have Hail a inillou instead of 81il.ni«».— W.
