J. J. Stauber, manager of tlie Savanna Copper company, has lately -svxitten in the -current number of Mines and Metals an interesting description of the Burro Mountain mining district, :New Mexico. Among other things he says that the district is 14 miles south-west of Silver City, -with which it is connected by two stage lines, making daily trips to and from. The Little Burro mountains are about 6300 feet elevation abovjs sea lev el, while the Big Burros have an eleva tion of S000 feet. Copper is reDorted to have been dis covered as early as 1871. The district went through many vicissitudes common to -western camps. The St Louis mine was about the only property of any note for ..ia nv vonrs and is said to liave pro duced about $1,000,000. Itnow belongs to the Burro Mountain Copper company. Geology, v Northeast of the Burro mountain dis trict is tle broad "Maugus f alley, flank ed on the east by a precipice-. This val lev and the Navajo valley, may be the result of a fault plain, but is believed to be due to erosion. On the west of this fault is a large area of water depoited material of considerable thick ness. To the west the district is gener ally marked by an iron oxide, cemented nn tio Trpst nlnnsr Dead Man canyon ero- per stained. The Savanna Copper com pany's "C" shaft has penetratea j.- feet through-this material and proved it to be dipping northeast 60 degrees. On the south Oak Grove canyon and on the westalong Dead Men canyon' ero sion has exposed biotite granites. These boundaries mark the outer edges of the area now under extensive development. This granite core was cut by a series of andesite dykes, forming broad fracture zones., which were prob ably thesbeglnning ofthe perlod.of min eralization, the richest zones being in the kaoJinized portion. In places they Mining Men Coming and Going From El Paso Andrew Bain, who was foreman of the Congress mine at Leon mining camp, belonging to the Candelaria Min ing company, Cliihuahua, for several years, has just arrived from Hawthorn, Nev., where he has been operating a rich gold mine.

Operating Companies. The National Copper company, operat ing in the northwest part of -the dis trict has developed chalcopy rites in granite, while the Savanna Copper companv in shaft "B" has encouniereu some galena at "150 feet depth. The Azure Mining company on the north has developed a large turquois anine, along an unaltered zone in the granite. Up to three or four years ago there was no very extensive development work in the district "At this time .the Che mung Copper company, ,hc Burro Moun tain Copper company and the Savanna Copper company hold the best developed properties. The - two first named each have nearly six. miles of development and a reported ore tonnage of over 2,000,000 tons. The average grade of the ore is 3 to 3 1-2 percent copper, but large masses are found running from 1 to 3 percent, with occasional bunches of 20 percent copper. The Old Virginia mine in 1907 shipped several thousand tons of ore averaging over 10 nercent cooper. For future oper- j ations by concentration, ore carrying 2 1-2 percent is being classed as cominer 1 cial. Besides these there rare several oth i er companies operating in the district.

Kingman, -vriz., Jan. 2S. E. M. La mont, manager of the Bimetal mine, has again been called to Los Angeles by a telegram from B. F. Kel$h, engineer for John Hays Hammond. The Bimetal is a large deposit of low grade gold ore, about three miles south from King fbaan, and has been under bond to Mr. Hammond for several months past. Mr. Lamont returned from a confer ence with the Hammond representatives in Los Angeles only about a week ago with the information that the deal "was off. The "mine had held up to a most rigid examination of several months by a corps of expert engineers and geolo gists, but the price had been the ob stacle to the conclusion of the transfer. With the idea that the deal was indeed off. Mr. Lamont was busily engaged in preparations for the immedIa?V enlarg ing of the Bimetal mill by 30 stamps and the Kemple mine is being thorough ly sampled by a series of miill runs un der the direction of superintendent Dawe.

BICE STEIKE IS MADE HEAE GLOBE Ore Carr-ying 40 . Percent Copper and Much Sil ver Uncovered. Globe, Ariz., Jan. 2S. A sensational "strike of copper and silver was made in the Kepler group of claims when a two and a half foot vein of ore carry ing 40 percent copper, and from 1000 to 2000 ounces in silver was discov ered. The vein was encountered in a drift leading from the bottoirf of a 40 foot shaft and gives every indication of permanency and increasing Vldth. Samples of the ore displayed in the city created great interest in mining ci-cles and the opinion prevails that another big producer has been discov ered. The Kepler group of claims is lo cated about seven and a half miles northeast of this city and in a district famous in the early days for silver pro duction and 'today known as the richest copper section In this district. The dis covery is on what is known as the Yuma fault and the rich ore exposed is within 1500 feet of an extension of the same ledge in which $300,000 m silver was taken out when this district was known as a silver camp.

It is an nounced from Pittsburg, Pa., that a mining company vrill be Incorporated very soon according to the laws of that state for the development of five claims in Santa Cruz -county, Ariz, The own er of the claims is V. R. Williams, an expert miner from Pittsburg, who as sures that ore bodies of high value in gold, silver and copper will ibe yielded by the claims in question. Ar depth of 160 feet has been, reached in the shaft of the Morrow & Cham berlain property in Paradise. Drifting northward has now begun from the bot tom of the shaft, Frank S. Hayward, a banker of Vinton,' la., is Interested in this property. The first ore bodies were encountered in the mine at the 40 foot level. It is a typical copper propo sition, being the copper found together with gold and some silver and without the slightest traces -of lead and zinc. R. P. Bland has purchased John Moore's interest in the bond on the Scott & Crawford. The property in question consists of a mine, the ore of which runs fair' in copper and silver, carrying carbonates and galena. A vein about three feet in width has been en countered and is being worked as fast as possible. MEXICO ZINC TO BE IMPORTED 7AT MARATHON. San Antonio, . Tex., Jan. 28. R. W. fowe, collector of customs at Eagle Pass,' has returned from Washington, where he had been in connection with the establishment of a sub-board at Boquillas to handle the importation of zinc to the United States. It Is under stood that such action is made neces sary by the preparations of the Dei Cannon Mining company to operate the zjnc mines in Boquillas and to bond a fraction line from Boquillas to Mara thon. A warehouse system will be established where the zinc ore will be deposited by means of a cable, six miles from the Mexican to the American side, carrying baskets weighing 400 pounds each. Nervous People Are Frequent Sufferers From Too Much Hydrochloric Acid In the Stomach. A Trial Package of Stnart's Dyspepsia Tablets Sent Free. "Sour stomach." or acid dyspepsia is a form of indigestion in which entire- i ly too rnuch hydrochloric acid is se- creted by the stomach. A sour taste in the mouth is1 the most common j symptom of acid dyspepsia; and the j saliva, which is normally alkaline, is J found, when tested, to be changed to acid, or just tne opposite of what It should be, and is a state of the secre tion which causes rapid and extensive ( destruction of the teeth. Everything eaten turns more or less sour in the stomach, but sweets and acid fruits are far worse In this re- spect than other foods. If the eructa tion of liquids from the stomach oc curs, they have such an extremely sour taste as to set the teeth on edge. Hydrochloric acid isan Important constituent in the gastric juice, but when too much of It is secreted, it does positive harm to the mucous lining of the stomach; and when acid dyspepsia Is long continued It often sets up chronic gastritis, gastric ulcer, and other serious diseases. The premature loss of all the teeth has been caused by acid saliva, which was dependent upon the excessively acid condition of the stomach STUART'S DYSPEPSIA TABLETS, besides furnishing pure, aseptic pepsin to thestomach to dilute the excess of hydrochloric acid, and to digest pro telds and albuminous foods very thor oughly, also contain 'hismuth subni trate and calcium carbonate, which are antagonistic to the acid, and therefore neutralize the effect of the excessive amount of acid in thb stomach, and the continued use of these tablets will change the perverted condition of the secretions to a normal state. Ifl you are suffering from "hyper-chlpr-hydra," as physicians term it, or in other words, acid dyspepsia, and experience a sour tas'e In the mouth, with acid eructations or heartburn, be gin at once the use of Stuart's Dys pepsia Tablets, using one or two after each meal, or as may.be required, and the same quantity at retiring time, for if this trouble is allowed to run on, it may cause serious organic changes In the stomach. There are cases on record where the lining of the stom ach has been completely eaten away through perverted action of the secre tions. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets have been tried in all forms of indigestion and dyspepsia, with unfailing success, so that no matter which form you may be suffering from, the quickest way to bring about a cure is through the use of these powerful stomach tablets. Secure from your druggist a fifty cent box, and get cured of acid dyspep sia, or whatever form of indigestion you may be suffering. Also send us f your name and address for free sample, Address F. A.
