laka Superior Region Causes Wonder
ful Klondyke to Pale
vnto Insignificance as a Producer
of Mineral Wealth-A Wonderful
Find of Almost Pure Copper.
Tons of it Brought to Light by a
Single Blast—Great Excitement
Caused Among the Miners and
Mine Owners—Some Interesting
Figures on the Profits and Pro
perty of the Calumet and Hecla
Company.
Houghton, Mich., August 1.—Great
excitement has been caused through
out the whole Lake Superior mining
district by the rich strike of native
copper mad? yesterday in the shaft of
the Six Mile Hill mine. Over a ton
of the metal in an almost pure condi
tion was loosened at one blast, as well
as a large amount pf ore which will
yield rich returns.
The results which have been ob
tained by the mining companies all
through the copper district have been
so good of late as to make gold mines
lose their charm, and those who know
of the rich retwns from the copper
veins can never be allured by tales of
fortune from gold fields, even if the
tales are as marvelous as the Klondyke
stories.
The biggest of the copper mining
companies is the Calumet and Hecla.
Its annual report, covering the opera
tions for the calendar year 1896, which
has been recently issued, shows that
on a capital of $10,000,000 dividends of
$2,500,000 were paid, and almost as
much more was added to the assets of
the company.
The 1896 production oi tne mine was
46.237 tons 1.395 pounds, the largest in
the history of the property, anil nearly
two-thirds of the total production of
the mines of the Lake Superior copper
district The statement shows a sur
plus in cash, bills and accounts re
ceivable. copper and copper mineral
on hand, of 15,889.211.50, the copper be
ing estimated at 8V2 cents per pound
and mineral at 4 cents per pound. The
mineral contains a trifle over two
thirds pure copper, and the cost of re
fining and marketing copper from min
eral is less that one cent per pound,
so that the real value of the mineral
on hand is in excess of 61* cents in
stead of 4 cents per pound, as figured
In the report.
The net surplus of the Calumet and
Ilecla is actually ahout $7,500,000, or
$75 per share, much the largest car
ried by any American mining com
pany, and exceeded by few corpora
tions in the country.
During 1896 the company returned
dividends of *2.500.000 to its stock
holders. added $191,686.27 to its pres
ent personal estate, and $169,207.94 to
its real estate, and increased the cred
its of the company by $1,856,473.83.
Adding dividends, increase of surplus,
and additions to real and personal es
tate. the net profits of the year’s opera
tions were $4,717,368.04. or in excess of
$47 per share on the capital stock of
100.000 shares.
In all likelihood the true figures of
cost of production of copper by the
Calumet and Hecla are between 5.4 and
5.5 cents per pound, which means that
the mine is working a profit of approx
imately 50 per cent, on its product, a
percentage of profit to gross revenue
which, it is believed, is sltown by no
other American mine, whether of cop
perAilver or gold, and is exceeded
onlw by the ratio of profits of the
Kim^erley-De Beers diamond mines of
South Africa.
FOR THE POOR MAN’S PARADISE.
Booth Tucker Exprc:* to Plant a Colony In
the Southwest.
New York. August 1.—Mr. Booth
Tucker, commander of the Salvation
Army in the United States, has just
returned from the southwest, where
he inspected lands for the purpose of
selecting a site for his proposed “poor
man’s paradise.”
The commander hopes to interest
capitalists, and if he is successful there
soon will be established in the south
west a colony that is expected to go far
toward solving the problem of how to
better the condition of the city poor.
Commander Booth Tucker hopes to
have, early in September, a conference
with several eastern capitalists who
own large tracts of land in Arizona.
Colorado. New Mexic* and Wyoming.
He does not expect that any of thorn
will donate their lands to this plan of
establishing a western utopia, hut he
believes he can demonstrate the prac
ticability of his plan and that he can
assure these capitalists a return of 5
per cent, on their investments.
If he succeeds in doing this he will
raise in a month, and with
that money will start 7">0 families for
the new utopia within the year.
FAMODS BUTTERFLY COLLECTOR.
William Itontnn, Jr., of Wellesley. Mass.,
Will Visit Kleld Museum. Chlraga
Chicago. Ills.. August 1.—William
Denton. Jr., of Wellesley. Mass., who
Is said to have the largest and finest
collection of mounted butterflies in
the world, is visiting friends in Chi
cago. Mr. Denton has just returned
from a trip to South America, where
he secured some magnificent specimens
of butterflies.
Among them is one which alights
on a twig and lays its wings together
so that they simulate a leaf so closely
that close inspection hardly reveals
the deception* The main stem and
veins of the leaf are clearly repro
duced in the wings, and even the
specks caused by fungus on the leaf is
imitated by the coloring of the insect.
Another remarkable specimen has
wings the color of which change by re
flected light from brown and black to
the most intensely brilliant blue. This
butterfly flies above the peaks of the
Andes and never comes to the earth
except to drink. Mr. Denton, whose
father was a well known naturalist,
will visit the Field Columbia museum
to-day.

Mother Died First Then Three t’hildreu
Father Has Keeu Missing fora Month.
Reyncldsville, Pa., August 1.—John
Harris, a canvasser of this city, has
b«en missing from his home since June
29th, and nothing has been heard from
him since.
Mr. Harris has had more than his
1 share if ill luck of late and it is be
lieved his mind is slightly deranged
from his troubles. About five years
ago the wife and mother was buried.
Two years later two daughters and one
son died, all within twelve months, and
that, with his own ill health, preyed
more or less upon Mr. Harris’ mind.
When he left home on June 29th to
canvass for the sale of a patent article.
I he promised to write to his remaining
I children the next day, yet nothing has
j been heard from him since. The little
daughter now in charge of the house
hold, which has been reduced to one
I little boy and herself, the sister, Mar
ian, 14 years old. having died on Tues
day. is sadly broken with grief.
PIANO F0R°KL0NDYKE.
| Milwaukee Mu*'.c Healer to Furnish One
for the At»«ka Hold Fields.
Milwaukee. Wis., August 1—A Mil
i waukee music dealer will enjoy the
j distinction of shipping the first high
grade piano to the new gold fields of
Alaska. Yesterday a Grand avenue
I piano man received an order for one
I of his best pianos, to cost $">25, from
C. H. Wilson, of Seattle, who is about
to locate at Dawson, the getting off
place in the Klondyke district.
It will be necessary to carry the In
! strument, suspended from poles, over
I the Chilkot pass, by way of the Dyea
and I«ike I.inderman route, and the
transportation will cost nearly as much
as the price of the instrument in this
city. This will be the first piano to
reach the gold fields by this route, and
success in shipping it would indicate
that the difficulties in crossing the
Chilkoot pass are not near as great as
is generally believed.

YACHTING HAT AND CAPE.
Beautiful Confection* In Different Shades
«>f Yellow for Wear on the Ocean.
At one of the preliminary races of
the Yacht Club the other day there
stood upon the deck of a very gayly
diessed little observation yacht a young
woman who wore a‘dream in yellow.
She looked like a lovely marigold with
her even sun tints. Her gown miglii
have been anything, for the cape and
the spreading hat were ail that was
visible.
The hat. a burnt yellow straw, turn
ed up at the back and was profusely
trimmed with bunches of tiny yellow
flowers nestling in green leaves. At the
back there rose loop after loop or yel
low taffeta ribbon wired and made
very durable against wind and sleet.
_l_
IIAT AND CAPE FOR YACHTING.
The collarette was a very lovely
thine: in white Hamburg, laid over yel
low taffeta. There were fine tucks be
tween the rows of Hamburg which
made the collarette look all the more
like lace. A very natty ribbon of yel
low taffeta was tied around the neck
and big loops stood out at the hack.
Above the ribbon was a ruff of tln\j
edging.
It would not be fair to say that thj
silk-striped gingham which the vounj
lady wore addfd nothing to her
tunie, for it was very neat.

A WISE PLAN.
Reckless and Inexperienced Bicycle
Riders Not Allowed on the Streets
in Russia. l ’«
Washington, August 1.—Consul Gen
eral John Karel, of St. Petersburg, In
his report on bicycles in Russia says:
“Bicycling in Russia »is in its in
fancy. In this northern part there is
very little, except in the summer
months, because in ■winter the snow is
deep and the weather cold. Before a
person is allowed to ride a wheel on
the streets of this city a permit is
necessary, which is issued by the city
administration, under the following
regulations:
“The applicant must first pass an
examination on the wheel before one
of the cycling associations of St. Peters
burg. When he has received a certi
ficate, he sends it with an application
to the city administration. Although
the permit is given gratis, the cost of
revenue stamps and of the little book
containing rules and regulations re
garding bicycle riding in the city
amount to $1.13, which must be paid
by the applicant before the pernfit is
obtained. Such permit is good for one
year, which begins always with May 1.
“Upon payment of the required
amount a registered number for the
bicycle is issued with a permit. The
number, in plain white figures on a
red plate, must be fastened on the
wheel both on the front and back 8"
as to be clearly, visible'to the police
and the public in case of any mishap
cr disobedience of the prescribed reg
ulations for bicycle riders. One plate,
with the number on both sides, is fast
ened to the frame in front, below the
handle-bar, sticking out so that the
number can be seen from either side,
and one plate is fastened to the frame
! behind, below the saddle, in such a
way as to be in full view when the
person is sitting on the saddle.”
Up to February, 1897. ladies were not
allowed to ride a bicycle on the streets
of the city of St. Petersburg. Since
that time permission has been granted.
There are four cycling clubs in St.
Petersburg and three in the suburbs.
The number of registered wheels in St.
Petersburg is a little over 7,000.
HE OBEYED ORDERS.
“Answer that telephone, will you?”
said the Griswold street man to the
new office boy. “And see if you can
tell the truth.”
“Hello! Hello! Yes—say, some
body wants to speak to you, sir,” turn
ins to his employer.
“Ask who it is.”
•'‘All right—who is it? Say. ne says
it’s Mr. Green.” *
“Oh, confound Mr. Green. I know
what he wants. Tell him I’m out.”
"Yes, sir—hello, he says he’s out. I
mean, sir, he’s out—out—yes, sir, out.
The boy now' listened with a frighten
! ed faCe- , mu ♦
"He says, sir,” to his employer, that
he has heard every wrord I’ve said, and
that he knows you’re not out. What’h
I do. sir?”
“Good gracious, you cussed little
fool," said the man as he grabbed his
hat. and prepared to scoot from the of
fice. “Tell him he’s mistaken.”
"He sav9 you’re mistaken, sir.”
