Deposit of Great Importance
Discovered in Two
The two federal bureaus engaged in
the search for potash salts, the bureau
of soils of the department of agricul
ture and the geological survey of the
department of the Interior, have re
ceived promising telegraphic news from
their field representatives, says a press
bulletin of the United States geological
survey. A potash deposit of apparently
great Importance has been discovered
in Borax or Searles lake, in the north
western corner of San Bernardino
county, Cel. This lake or playa is the
last remaining pocket of a once much
greater lake which has almost dried up.
and Its central depression contains a
large body of crystalline salts known
to consist of common salt and sulphate
and carbonate of soda, with small quan
tities of borax. This salt body is satur
ated with brine, and Interested persons,
stimulated by the gorernmental search
for potash, recently secured an analy
sts nf old ftftmal( nittitriAl from this
I brine. The result being significant.
the lake was visited Jointly by repre
sentatives of the geological survey and
of the bureau of soils, who took brine
samples from six wells distributed over
the salt flat. Analyses of these sam-
Jiles have been made by the cooperative
aboratory at the Mackay School of
Mines, at Reno, Nevada, and show an
average ef 6.7s percent of .potassium
oxide (K O) contained. The average
salinity of the brine is 43.82 grams of
solids per 100 cc Comparison of the
results indicate that the brines are
nearly uniform throughout the flat
The probable importance of the depos
it Is due to the occurrence of the potas
sium salts in soluble form in a natural
saturated brine, and under climatic and
other conditions especially favorable to
'Its separation and recovery by solar
evaporation. Existing data give rea
sonable assurance that the brine-saturated
salt body is at least SO feet thick
and covers an area of at least 11 square
miles. Assuming the salt body to con
tain 25 percent by volume of the brine,
the total amount of potassium oxide is
estimated at over 4,009,000 short tons.
This estimate is believed to be conser
vative, and the available tonnage may
well be expected to exceed 10,000,000
tons, which would supply the country,
at the present rate of consumption of
potash, for 30 years. At any rate, it ap
pears that this locality constitutes a
very important source of potash in
probably readily available commercial
form. Methods of separating potash
from brines are now under lnTestlga
tion by the bureau of soils.
Wet and Dry Lakes Common.
Borax lake or Searles lake is one of
the many'pl&yas or intermlttenaly wet
and dry lakes common throughout the
arid regions of the west. It lies be
tween the Argus and Slate ranges In
the Mohave desert of southern Callfor-
of the famous "20-mule team" borax
mine, the borax being hauled in great
wagons drawn by 20 to 2S big mules
to the Southern Pacific railroaa at Mo
have, a distance of 80 miles. The lake
i or flat is about 10 miles long and five
nnies wioe ana u receiea me araiu
age from the surrounding hills tor
many thousands of years, vast quanti
ties of dissolved minerals being thus
concentrated in it. The water has been
evaporated., under the intense heat of
the long hot. Bason but the sJT have
remained, So that for most of the .Tear
in fact, often throughout the year
the bed is a, glistening plain of white
salts, in attempting to cross which men
have lost their lives. Borings have
been made through the mud and water
underlying the lake to a depth of some
hundreds of feet, the depest borings
made bringing up hot mud.
Minerals Keund in Mai,
Many useful and curious minerals
are found in the muds and other depos
its of Borax lake. Including, of course,
borax. Among them are gypsum,
glauberite, carbonate and sulphate of
soda, salt, thenardlte, and haneklte.
The last carries as much as 2.1 per
cent of potassium, equivalent to 4.44
percent of potassium chloride. The
salts are not evenly distributed over the
surface of the lake. Borax was found
plentifully over about three square
miles, common salt is everywhere, ana
sodium carbonate and sodium sulphate
are widely distributed. One boring is
said to have passed through 28 feet or
solid trona (hydrous carbonate of soda)
of great purity. At other places there
is 25 feet of solid mixed sulphate and
carbonate of soda, with smaller quan
tities of other salts. Although the lake
bed is dry most of the time, a few
Inches under the outer crust there is
always water a bittern heavily im
pregnated with salts. Several years
ago an English company attempted to
work the soda deposits on an extensive
scale, but for some reason the work
has not been pushed. This company
sunk a number of wells, casing them
through the soda deposits. It was
found that a heavy stream of water
could be pumped continuously without
perceptibly -lowering the water level.
Potassium chloride and sulphate, the
forms in which potash salts are most
likely to be found in such deposits,
are among the most soluble of salts
and are likely to be much more gener
ally diffused than salts less easily sol
uble. That the entire body of water
and mud in the lake contains potash In
a more or less uniform degree, is indi
cated by the results thus far attained.
However, there are modifying agen
cies, such as springs and streams, that
bring in fresh water, for the movement
of water through the lake will be slow,
owing to the presence of the sand and

Revolution Outs Down the
Number of Mexican Div

With 83 America mines and works

cording to reports made to Mining
and Engineering World, totaled $81,
700,390. This compares with SS1.84.
031 in, the same period in 1911 with 96
mines participating. Had it not been
for the falling off in disbursements
made by the Canadian and Mexican
companies the quarter's declarations
would have made a record in American
mine dividend payments.
Whe nit is taken Into consideration
that these dividend payments result
from the operation of only gold, silver,
copper, lead, zinc and quicksilver mines,
and do not include the millions of dol
lars paid by other companies whose
products Include coal, iron, petroleum,
cement, etc, and la addition the so
called rare minerals, the magnitude of
the American mining industry can be
better understood.
That the operation of gold, eilver,
copper, lead, zinc and quicksilver
properties has long been profitable,
taken as a whole, is evidenced by the
dividend payments of the above men
tioned 33 companies, which have, Btnce

the shareholders a total of 1660,663,272.
Were the total disbursements made by
the 300 or more companies quoted in
the dividend tables published else
where in Mining and Engineering

it would make a startling total well

Coppers Assume Lead.
For the first time in many months,
by reason of the improved prices for
tne red metal, the copper properties as
sume the lead in dividend payments,
the quarter's disbursements showing
that, with 19 companies contributing
nearly one-half of the quarter's total
or 39,798.218 was paid by the pro
ducers of copper. These 19 proper
ties have certainly had a most profita
ble career for, to date, holders of their
stock have been enriched to the extent
of 3328.059.542. On -the combined is
sued capital of these companies this
is a return equivalent to 153 percent,
or 3114,503,880 in excess of outstand

Of the 83 companies paying dividends
in 1912. 57 are classed as gold-stiver-lead-sine
producers. These distributed
among shareholders during the quarter
just ended $7,607,104,- and since in
corporation 3204,482,305. Thirty-eight
of these properties are located In the
United States and they contributed
$4,985,622 during the quarter and $149,.

While Eczema, Acne, Tatter, Salt Rheum, etc., are troubles which, affect
the skin, their source is far deeper than the outside cuticle. These affections
are caused by irritating humors, or uratio acid in the blood. Such imparities
inflame and irritate the delicate net-work of fibrous tissue which lies Just
beneath the surface of the outer skin, and the inflammatory discharge thus
produced is forced'out through the pores and glands, and is continually
kept up while the blood remains infeoted. This exudation causes the form
ation of scales and crusts so often seen in Eczema, and when they are
scratched off the flesh is left raw and more susceptible to other infection.
It can very readily be seen then that to produce a cure the circulation must
be purified and cleansed. This S. S. S. will do. Zt goes down to the very
bottom, removes all humors and impurities, neutralizes the excessive actfs
of the system and in this way removes the cause of disease. Local applica
tions can only soothe theJrritation and assist in keeping the skin clean; they '
never produce a cure because such treatment does not reach the blood.

as fas as you can. And don't stop till
you have run so far the widow can't
catch you.
A woman of forty, of mature Judg
ment (or as mature as her Judgment
may ever hope to be), wants a boy 20
years her Junior to elope with her. If
she loves him, as she probably claims,
it is not an honest, honorable love. It
is not the unselfish kind that lasts,
and In a case like jours, my dear boy,
your parents should be given all the
power the courts would extend to
parents against whose children there
have been made threats of kidnaping.
Old enough to be your mother, she
so far -forgets your mother's rights by
urging you to do that which would
break your mother's heart.
If she were the right kind of a wo
man she would encourage you to be a
man. and do that which is best' for
your future. Instead, she is flattering'
you into a step that will be suicidal.
If she has wealth, as you claim, that
should bear no weight with a man of
twenty with life and its great possibili
ties before him.
She has nothing to give you that you

The manner of woman she is is

Into your work. Make doing well

of your own age to share it with you.
She is here, somewhere. The Lord
who made you didn't forget to make
her. Rest assured that the woman who
was created 20 years before you was
not put into this world for the purpose
of living and loving and marrying and
losing, experiencing all the emotions
of life, and then waiting till you had
arrived at the discreet age of twenty
that she might gobble you up.
If your mother is forty and were a
widow, could you love and respect her
if she tried to persuade one of your
age to elope with her?
Since this woman is old enough to
be your mother see that she meets the
standards of that age.
If she is an "uncommon pleasant wld

fatuated you. It would be a pity for
her to Chanel her condtion.
And from youi roint of view It would
be a crime.
