A flash of light, an explosion- that rattled -windows in houses many miles away; and all was over, and the people were left to draw their own conclusions. Many persons happened to be outside when the exceeding brightness of the Clash of light caused them to look for the cause and they had plenty of time to see the beautiful phenomenon before the explosion. More fallen meteors, on exhibition in the City of Mexico, have been picked up in the.state of-Chfuahua ?than in any other state. The two little children of Tien Paynes who have been sick are improving. Many peons, with their red blankets over their shoulders, came trudging into town. They have quit work on the construction of the railroad and are on their. way home. Cattle in the Dublan -pasture are very poor. They have been turned into another pasture where the feed is bet ter. Arwell Allred, formerly of Mexico, but now of Blackfoot, Idaho, underwent an operation for appendicitis. Mother ISTurses Her Children and rlow Has Measles. Colonia Juarez, arch 25 Mrs. Ttiggs, formerly of El Paso, came down with measles -while caring for her children. She has been very sick. Her life was despaired of for several days, but she seems to be Improving a little now. Her husband was caiiled nome from EI Paso because of her illness. A matched game of basketball, be tween the Dublan and Juarez seventh grade pupils, resulted in a victory for the Dublan boys. The game was played in Colonia Dublan. Later the Dublan boys went to Juarez to try the game again and the Juarez boys were the victors. Mrs. E. A. Saville has gone to Ciudad Juarez where she will remain for sev eral weeks.

MEN BADLY-BRUISED IX SEVENTH STREET BRAWL Four men are in the city jf.il charged with assault and fighting -and two charged with simple fighting as the re sult of '& drunken brawl on Seventh street Thursday afternoon. Anselmo and Pablo Parra, who are charged with fighting, were terribly beaten by the Bryan K. Morse, mining engineer, formerly superintendent of the Ortega Mining companyl, of Cananea, Mexico, who has been In the city a few weeks, left for Bisbee today. He spent eight months last year in the famous Cobalt mining district, Ontario, Canada in geological and mineralogical examina tions, and furnishes the following ex cerpts from his notes on observations in various localities of that district, which will be of great Interest to all mining men of the southwest as showing the conditions existing and methods used in that district. Describes Formations. The country rocks of the proved bo nanza circle of the silver deposits of the Cobalt and South Lorrain camps are all Pre Cambrian and are classified in three series: First. Keewatin; second Huronian; third, diabase and Gabbro. The oldest series in the district con sists of an ingenous complex which con tains diabases and related rocks of dif ferent periods of eruption, together with granite porphyry and other ingneous material. Sediments are represented by the jasper iron ores. The basis rocks, or greenstones occur in much larger volume than do those of a more acid character. The name Keewatin is ap plied to this series, The ore deposits appear to occur only in the diabases and greenstones. The Keewatin has been subjected to folding and other disturbances and Is cut through by medium to coarse grained granite, especially in the town ship of Lorrain, to which the name of Laurentian is applied. The Keewatin rocks, however, have been folded be fore the intrusion of the Laurentian granite. Cobalt In Huronian. The second series is the Huronian, After the Laurentian Intrusions the surface was subjected to erosion, and these jocks together with the Keewatin were worn down. This period of erosion was a long one, and the surface was rendered uneven, being cut into hills and valleys. Government geologists are rather inclined to the belief now that the lakes were formed by glaciers. The oldest fragmental materiaa. which lies directly on the eroded Keewatin and Laurentian surface, consists of conglomerate, greywacke slate and im pure quartzites. These rocks contain fragments of the granite, greenstones, diabases and other representatives of the older series and their relationship to the latter is quite easily proved by contacts in quite a number of locali ties. This older or lower Huronian is of special interest since it contains most of the cobalt-silver veins. The association of the members of the lower Huronian is somewhat vari able. There is usually a little coarser material, conglomerate at the base. This is frequently followed by considerable thickness of well banded greywacke slate. The slate in many cases passes gradually upward into a feldspatchic . struction or impure qua.rLziie wiimu is sutceeucu by a coarse conglomerate. The upper parf of the conglomerate is undoubtedly younger than the more slaty members. Slate Conglomerate. The breccia and conglomerate of the lower JIuronian are what were called by Logan and others, slate-conglomer- late, a name which well describes the varieties possessing a slate-like base through which are set pebbles and boulders. The veins cut through all these series, but the most productive parts of the veins are usually in rocks which contain more or less coarse frag ments. The series of arkoses, or what have been catlled by some writers sea-green quartzites, togethtr with conglomerate and quartzites of the township of Lor rain, form another series in the Huron ian, Mr. Miller stating that he has sulph-arsenide of t sulph-arsenide of antimonide, fftnr othpr mfiii. thv sav. jjtii! hnf-h nn- peared in police court this morning with ound hem unconformable to the Lower their heads bandaged where they had been cut and bruised.

The third series is Diabase and Gab bro. These rocks refer to tne post Up per Huronian intrusions of the diabase. The two terms are employed in the canip .to distinguish between 'the fine and coarse grained. Diabases repre sent several periods of eruption. Kee watin to post middle Huronian are found in the field and is very difficult to distinguish them. The diabases of the post upper Huronian are mucu fresher in appearance and coarser In grain than those of a similar compo sition which occur in the early series, and can thus be readily distinguished in che field from the latter. In many cases, where associated with the Huronian, the diabases seem to be In the iorm of sheets or sills spreading between or over the layers of the rocks through which they cut. They show no evidence, such as amygdaloid texture, of being surface flows. It is generally conceded that the fractures and -fissures now occupied by tne silver bear rtng veins, were dause3 by the in trusions of the diabase and other dis turbances, following same. Since the eruption of the diabase, the area has been subjected to great de nudation. The surface has been cut into hills and valleys and the geologi cal map shows a patchwork of Kee watin, .Huronian and Diabase, together with glacial and recent deposits. Ore Analysis. An analysis of the ore shipments for one year show the following propor tions: Silver, 3.9 percent; Cobalt, 5.5 percent; Nickel, 3.49 percent; arsenic, 25.6 'percent; the gangue is calcfte. 1. Native Elements: Native silver. Native bismuth. Graphite. 2. Arsenides: Niccolite, or ars'enide of nick3l, NdAs. Chloanthife, or diasenide of nickel NiAs2. Smaltlte, or diarsenide of CoValt CoAs2. 3. Arsenates: Erythnite. or cobalt bloom, CoAs 208 plus H20. Annaberguite, or nickel bloom Ni3As20S plus SH20. 4. Sulphides: Argentlte, or silver sulphide "g2S. Millerite, or nickel sulphide NiS. 5. Sulph-ansenide: Mispickel. or sulph-arsenide of iron FeAsS. Cobaltite, or cobalt CoAsS. Proustlte. or silver Ag3AsS3. 5. Antimonide: Dyscrasite, or silver Ag6Sb. 7. Sulph-antimonides: Pyrargyrlte, or dark ruby silver, Ag3SbS3. Work at the Mines. At the mines without mills, the grada of ore Is raised by cobbing, washing, and hand picking. The ore is usually J first passed over "a grizzly or coarse screens, as the screenings generally carry enough value to be of shipping grade without further treatment. At the Kerr Lake mine the tailings from the sorting tables run on an aver age of about five ounces of silver to the ton. "With the smelter, schedules and freight rates at present in force, an ore must run about 45 ounces per ton to pay charges outside of the cost of mining. All ores below this point must, therefore, be concentrated If they are to be shipped. The point at which the combined con centration and smelting rates meet the direct smelting rates is aDout 90 ounces. If, however, a mine ownsjts own mill, the grade of ore that can be concentrat ed more profitably before shipping to the smelter direct is much higher. In the future, if present conditions hold, it will be natural to expect that very Utile ore will be shipped from the camp that will assay less than 100 sil ver per ton. There are at present seven mills in the camp and five under con- The average concentration ratio is 45 into one. The costs of mill ing runs from $1.25 per ton to $2.50. The flow sheet of the mills Is as fol lows: Crushers, rolls, trommels jigs, stamps, or rolls with hardinge or Chilian mills, James or "Wilfley, or Dles ter concentrating tables, DIester slim niers or frue-vanners. Some of the mills using cyanide process for the tailings figure that four ounces pays the cost of cyaniding. Cost of Production. a BERG, 206 San Antonio St. A LITTLE THISTG Changes the Home Feelings Coffee blots out the sunshine from many a home by making the mother, or some other member of the household, dyspeptic, nervous and Irritable. There are thousands of cases where the proof is absolutely undeniable. Here is one. A "Wis. mother writes: "I was taught to drink coffee at an early age, and also at an early age be came a victim to headaches, and as I grew to womanhood these headaches became a part of me, as I was scarcely ever free from them. "About five years ago a friend urged me to try Postum. I made the trial and the result was so satisfactory that we have used it ever since. "My husband and little daughter were subject to bilious attacks, but they have both been entirely free from them since we began using Postum instead of coffee. I no longer have headaches and my health is perfect." If some of these nervous, tired, irrita ble women would only leave off coffee absolutely and try Postum they would find a wonderful change in their life. It would then be filled with sunshine and happinesss rather than wearlnes and discontent. And think what an ef fect it would have on the family, for the mood of the mother is largely respon sible for the temper of the children. Head "The Road to Wellvllle," in pkgs. "There's a Reason." Ever read the above letter? A new one appears from time to time. They are genuine, true, and full of human Interest. The mines at present, are not receiv ing payment for cobalt, nickel, or ar senic. The cost sheet of one of the prin cipal mines is as follows: Cost of production operation $105.46 per ton .13011 per ounce. Depreciation, $13.03 per ton .01607 per ounce. Marketing ore, $51.02 per ton .06294 per ounce. Corporation legal, $6.50 per ton .00S03 per ounce. ' Less Income, $8.10 per ton .01 per ounce. Total, $167.91 per ton .20715 per ounce. The above details include every item chargeable to production. A depre ciation of 24 percent on plant and build ings is charged against the working costs. In the marketing cost is in cluded the value of the smelting de duction, that Is. the difference between the total contents of the ore and the percentage paid by the smelter. During the year 10,000 feet of un derground work was done through 12 shafts and two tunnels, and 40,000 feet of surface trenching, chargeable against production. Profit on Production. The profit on production was as fol lows: Gross value of ore, 100 percent total cost of production 39.42 percent; profit on production paid In divid ends, 60.58 percent. The cost of pro ducing, silver ranges from 5 1-4 per ounce to 21c, the average of the camp being about 15 c per ounce. The deepest workings of the camp are at present 500 feet, with high grade values continuing, and the future of the district in both high grade and milling ores is very bright. The total production to date has amounted to nearly $30,000,000. The ore Is native silver, occurring as sheets and pockets, and with the arsen ides of cobalt and nickel. The pay chutes are from 20 to 1000 feet long. Many carloads of ore shipped from the camp have run In the neighborhood of $100,000 per car. The ores are shipped to the Anglo French Nickel company, the Swansea Wales, the American Smelting Refin ing company, Perth-Amboy N. J., and Denver. Colo., the Carnegie Smelting company, Carnegie, Pa., the Beer Sond-J helmer company, of Hamburg, Germany, the International Nickel company and the Canadian Copper company at Cop per Cliff, Ontario, Canada. Costs Greater There. The costs of mining in the Cobalt dis trict are much higher than in the south western country. There is a great vari ation In the camp in the cost of under ground work due apparently to the fact that comparatively few of the miners are skilled. For instance, in one of the principal mines two drifts were run from a 100-foot level in diabase rock. One cost $4.25 per foot and the other $12 per foot. This difference was caused by the fact that the miners in the first drift were skilled machine men and the others were not. Drifting underground, management, etc., included, costs from $12.50 to $2h per' foot; shaft sinking, 4x9 in the clear, from $20 to $50 per foot. In drift ing no timber is necessary as the ground stands; In shaft sinking, tim bering Is compulsory by law. i Easter Sale of Jewelry Novelties at One-fourth the Real Value and Even Less ABOUT 350 pieces will be offered in this After Supper Sale, consisting of plain and jeweled brooches, belt pins, cuff buttons, -Dutch eollax pins, neck chains and sash pins.
