MINING NEWS IN BRIEF Western Newspaper Union News Service. Tread of Metal Price*. Silver 9 .52% Lead 4.45(0) 4.60 Copper 12.25(0'12.50 Spelter 6.05 Colorado. The Colburn mill at Cripple Cre<3k will be In operation by Oct. 15. It is estimated twenty-five cars of food ore will be shipped from the Forest Queen mine at Cripple Creek during the month. According to a recent report from Ban Juan county, there will likely be a zinc-treating plant put up in Sll verton by the government. A heavy tonnage of smelting ore is going out from the Santiago mines at Georgetown. The ore ia a high grade, averaging S4O per ton in gold, silver and lead. It is stated that the Dives-Pelican and Seven-Thirty Mining Company at Georgetown will soon start work on an aerial tramway to run from the Zero tunnel level, to the big company mill. A stringer of lead has been encoun tered near the breast of the Vindica tor tunnel. Idaho Springs, indicating the approach to a vein carrying that material. This is something unusual for that section, as the ore is mostly of a copper-iron nature. The Colorado Chemicals Company, which has taken over the old Bailey mill at Eldora, Boulder county, has in creased the force of men employed and it is reported will convert the plant into a cyanide mill after plans successfully employed in California. Since the decline of the market val ue of silver in 1893, development work in Corkscrew bulch, in Ouray county, as in other localities, has practical ly ceased. With the advancement of copper the district has come into prominence on account of its vast quantities of black copper. An important discovery is reported from the Seven-Thirty mine on Sher man mountain, Georgetown. In carry ing a stope on fhe Bismark vein from the third level of the old workings, a streak of solid smelting ore six inches wide has been exposed and a mill run returned 490 ounces silver per ton, with twenty-two per cent lead. The vein has been exposed for ninety feet and the showing is improving. The rick strike reported several days ago on the 200-foot level of the Stratton's Independence mine, in Crip ple Creek district, by William Millar and associates of Victor, is holding up v ■well and it is said the shoot has wid ened from two feet to three feet. The I ore is plastered with sylvanite and samples assay from S2OO per ton up. This is one of the richest strikes made in the camp in many a day. The discovery of ore carrying SSOO in platinum per ton, with SBS gold and traces of silver, has startled miners in the vicinity of Norwood. The plat inum was shown as the result of a general assay of ore from a big vein of sandstone known to be rich in gold and which was located about thirty days ago In a new field in the Natu rita caflon, by W. S. and Scott Leach. Placer miners have panned the ore, which is a soft red sand, and disinte grates easily, getting big values. The strike is the most wonderful made in the San Juan country for thirty years and the new field is overrun with pros pectors. New Mexico. There has been a new discovery of ore on the Economic Mining and Mill ing Company property, eight mile 3 southwest of Cagrlzozo, during the past week, whicth may develop the property into being one of the gieat i mines of the southwest. The abandoned smelter of the Con solidated Mining & Smelting Compa- ! ny at Los Cerrillos, north of Albuquer que, which recently emerged from pro- | longed litigation as the property of the ► Bank of Commerce of Albuquerque, been sold under lease and bond, together with six mining claims in the »\.]Cerrillos district, to the Sunset Mining & Smelting Company of Albuquer que, which has ben developing prop erties in the Hell Cafion district. The new owner will put the smelter into shape at once and start active devel opment of the mines near Los Cerri llos. Wyoming. The great Rambler mine at Holmes 1s to resume operations under arrange ments recently entered into between J. M. Ruggles of Madison, Wis., and the Rambler Copper and Platinum Company, whareby Mr. Ruggles is to operate under a lease and bond. Nevada. / Approximately SBO,OOO was distribut ed by Goldfield Consolidated Mines Company as wages for the month of July, covering the payroll, which av erages about 675 men. A deep shaft and extensive explo ration of the Goldfield Belmont prop erty on lines commensurate with the recognized merit of the proposition are among the plans announced by M. B. Cutter, president of the Tonopah & Goldfield railroad and one of the larg est stockholders in the Goldfield Bel mont Mining Company. DANGERS OF DISKING Expert Tells of Practices to Be Avoided. Foundation of Dry Farming la to Farm for tho Future—*tore Up Moisture In 801 l for tho Next Yoar. We have boon watching tho effects of ■ hallow plowing and dloklng for nearly thirty years, and still wo can see no good In It Every dry year the same thing happens. In 1908 wo went over thousands of acres where the crops had boon dlaked in on stub ble. Wo saw oats burned out six and eight Inches high; opring wheat completely fired just beginning to head; winter wheat that went only five bushels to the acre; and Holds of corn on shallow-plowed sod that yield ed nothing but a handful of fodder, writes E. R. Parsons, a dry form ex pert, In an exchange. The disking and shallow plowing habits come from the humid states, where It rains sometimes twice a week, and small crops can always be raised by simply cultivating enough to keep the weeds out. Farmers will sometimes say, “We can raise more by disking than plow ing." This is true, because a surface farmer seldom plows more than three inches, and he can do this equally well and more quickly with the disk. Or he may plow without harrowing, let the ground dry out as he goes, and plant in a poorly prepared seed bed. An old friend of ours used to raise Indifferent crops by plowing once in three years and disking in his seeds the two intervening years. The first year his oats would be about two to three feet high; the seond year, 18 Inches; and the third, about a foot; but If a dry year happened, there was nothing doing. He always would per sist that be could raise good crops without plowing to carry his cattle through the winter. I happened to meet him in 1909. “Well," I said, “bow did you come out last year?" "Oh,” he said, “I sold my cattle.” Thousands of head of cattle were sold in the fall tof 1908 for the same reason. This put the market down adn the dry-farmers lost heavily. Supposing we plant a crop of spring wheat or oats on corn stubble, what happens? Ninety per cent of the farmers put cattle on stubble during the winter. The ground becomes bard and overpacked; we disk this on the surface and plant the seed. For a while It does splendidly, and If the rains keep up will make a fair crop; but if dry weather comes and a crust forms on the surface or under the mulch, the crop is gone, for it is solid underneath. It has never been plowed!' It Is the surface farmers who are always walling about this crust under the mulch, but those who belong to the deep-plowing school pay no atten tion to it, for they still have plenty of room for the roots of their crops down below, and if the mulch above the crust is in proper shape there Is no more evaporation than there was before. A man wrote to me once and asked what he should do for the crust under the mulch. I wrote back and said: “Next year plow deep." His answer was: “How did you find out that I didn’t plow deep?” The worst consequence of disking without plowing is the effect It has on next year’s crop. The ground be ing hard, the water penetrates very little; the available moisture is used up by the crop, and the surplus evap orates or runs off. Nothing is saved for next year. In dry-farming, if we work only for the present, we are living from hand to mouth. The very foundation of this branch of agriculture is to farm for the future. Store up moisture in the soil for next year and the year after, keep track of it with the pick and Bhovel or with a ground auger, and you will soon find out which style of farming pays the best BLUE GRASS PASTURES EXCEL Extensive Investigations Carried on By Missouri Experiment Station With 263 Head of Cattle. Cattle fattened on blue grass pac tures will make double the gain on the same grain for the first three months of the pasture season as com pared with the late months of the feeding period. This Important factor aR well as the Influence of age, nitro geneous supplements and the margin of profit are discussed in Bulletin 90 of the Missouri experiment station. This bulletin was written by Dean F. B. Munford and records the results of five years’ experiments In fatten ing cattle of various ages on blue grass pasture. This extensive In vestigation Involved the feeding of 263 cattle, divided into 36 distinct ex periments, and is the largest and most complete investigation of this subject which has ever been made in this country. Delight In Freeh-Turned Soil. Through the summer, when rains are infrequent, all one needs to do is spade up fresh earth every few days and mash the clods. The hens and chicks delight to dust in fresh turned soil. Interesting Movement. Dry farming is the most interesting and Important movement in the world. GROWING THE BARLEY CROP Definite Rules Cannot Bo Given Ow ing to Diversity of Condltiono. Beed Bod Is Essential. (By H. B. DERR, Bureau of Plant Indus try, U. 8. Department of Agriculture.) Barley is grown over such a wide area and under such a diversity of con ditions that definite rules for its culti vation can hardly be given. The thor ough preparation of the seed bed is essential under all conditions, as on this depends a large part of the suc cess of the crop. Plowing should be dona the fall previous or a considerable time before seeding. This allows s complete setr tling of tho soli and Improves its war ter-holding capacity. Many failures bars resulted from planting barley on newly plowed ground, especially when a dry season followed. The crop sel dom does well on 'newly broken sod; but when sod land is to be planted beet results will be obtained if It la broken ahallow and laid flat rather than set on edge, as Is commonly, done. Breaking should be done while the grass Is fresh and green, as de composition then seta in rapidly and the vegetation and roots soon decay. Plowing under vegetation when the plants and roots are tough is injurious, as their slow decay renders the soil too open. No soil should be plowed when very wet. The shearing action of the plow upon the bottom of the furrow Is like ly to form an almost Impervious layer or “plowpan” by compacting the soli particles. Unlesß the depth of plow nig is varied from year to year this layer Is likely to Injure the growth of crops that follow. By gradually changing the depth of plowing each year new soil is brought to the top and mixed with the surface soil with out Injuring Its yielding capacity. In some portions of the United States the ground is seldom plowed for barley where it follows a culti vated crop, but Is simply cross or double disked and harrowed. When the soil Is In good physical condition good crops may be obtained by this method. Where possible, barley should follow a cultivated crop. As soon as the previous crop is removed In the fall the ground should be deeply plowed and left rough. As early In the spring as possible the land should be double disked, either crossing or lapping half, if the soil is rough and cloddy a plank drag should be used to break the clods. In extreme cases a roller should first be used. The disk har row or plank drag should be followed by the smoothing harrow to make a fine seed bed. In a cold, backward spring this treatment will aid in warming up the soil. If the land is not plowed until spring, the soil sometimes dries out so rapidly that it becomes bard before the plowing can be completed. FEATHERS AS A FERTILIZER Farmer Accidentally Makes Discovery Which Has Proven to Be of Great Value In His Garden. A short time ago I happened to stop at the home of a huckster. I in cidentally began to talk about the value of different kinds of manures. He said: “You can talk about hen ma nure and sheep manure, but I’ve got something that’s got them all beat en.” Of course I was anxious to find out what It was, and it developed that it was leathers, says a writer In an exchange. He owns a small farm. In his busi ness he kills a great deal of poultry. The feathers began to pile up on his hands, finally, finding It to be quite a task to burn them, he hauled two loads out on the fields. The result was that he could tell to the very row where the feathers had run out. Now he’s exceedingly careful about saving feathers. He spreads they out in the. barnyard In order that they may be come thoroughly mixed with the manure. DAIRY NOTES. Salt is valuable as a preservative of butter. Separate milk as soon as possible after milking. The milk vessels and utensils should be used for milk only. Care and cleanliness in ‘milking is necessary to good butter. Whitewash the cow stable and keep it looking fresh and clean. Milk must be removed at once from the barn to a clean place for cooling. It Is evident that healthful milk can not be produced from a, diseased cow. The best separation is secured when milk Is put in the machine at animal heat. Ground oats and oil-meal make an excellent grain ration for freshening cows. Rape Is very good feed for milch cows but must be fed in connection with other feeds and not In excess. The first and undoubtedly most im portant factor in the production of pure milk is to have a healthy herd. The cream separator, the silo and the manure spreader should find a place In the equipment of every dairy farm. The milk pall should be made so as to reduce to a minimum the amount of dirt that can get Into It during ths operation of milking. Suit the feed to the cow. Some cows will give more milk on one kind of feed than another. Find out which it the better, and give her that. Salt which is too coarse cannot be evenly distributed throughout the but ter. On the other hand, very fine salt favors the holding of too much water The medium grade gives best results. LATE MARKET QUOTATIONS Western Newspaper Union News Service. DENVER MARKETB. Cattle.

Lady Visitor —I am coming to your mamma’s company tomorrow, Tom my. Tommy—Well, you won’t get a good supper. Tommy’s Papa—Tommy, what do you mean, talking like that? Tommy—Well, you know, pa, you told ma you’d have to get some chicken feed for her old hen party tomorrow. Remarkable Fish. “I thought you said there were fish around here,” said the disappointed sportsman. "There are,” replied Farmer Corn tossel. “But they are experienced fish. Moreover, they’re kind and con siderate.” "1 haven’t had a nibble.” “Well, you don’t think they’d bite at that brand-new fancy tackle, do you? They’d stand off and admire It, but they’d never take a chance on gettin’ it mussed up.” In Strict Obedience. Master Gregory Graham, aged three, had been having an ocean bath, and breaking away from bis older sister he ran all dripping wet to the door of the living room, where Mrs. Graham was entertaining a caller from the fashionable hotel. “Why, Greg," his mother greeted him, “you mustn’t come in here like that, dear. Go straight upstairs and take off your bathing suit first.” A few minutes later Mrs. Graham turned toward the door in curiosity as to what sight there had sent her visitor’s eyebrows up so high, and In the same moment her son’s cheerful voice rang out: "I tooked it off, mother, like you told me to. I’m coming in now for some cake.” HIS COLOR CHANGED. Evelyn—But when It comes to love making Harold is rather green, isn’t he? Myrtle—Not now. Evelyn—lndeed! Myrtle—No, he’s blue; I rejected him last evening. GET POWER. The Supply Comes From Food. If we get power from food why not strive to get all the power we can. That 1b only possible by use of skil fully selected food that exactly fits the requirements of the body. Poor fuel makes a poor fire and a poor fire Is not a good steam producer. “From not knowing how to select the right food to fit my needs, I suf fered grievously for a long time irom stomach troubles," writes a lady from a little town in Missouri. “It seemed as if I would never be able to find out the sort of food that was best for me hardly anything that I could eat would stay on my stomach. Every attempt gave me heartburn and filled my stomach with gas. I got thinner and thinner until I literally became a living skeleton, and In time was compelled to keep to my bed. A few months ago I was persuaded to try Grape-Nuts food, and it had such good effect from the very beginning that I have kept up its use ever since. I was surprised at the ease with which 1 digested It. It proved to be Just what I needed. “All my unpleasant symptoms, the heartburn, the inflated feeling which gave me so much pain disappeared. My weight gradually increased from 98 to 116 pounds, my figure rounded out, my strength came back, and I am now able to do my housework and en joy it. Grape-Nuts food did it."

The Extreme Limit. “Is there anything worse than liv ing in the suburbs?" asked Howard. “Yes," replied Mr. Fartrek, of North Hackensack, “there is. Living in the suburbs of the suburbs." Back to the Soil. “Gardening has restored young Weakling to health. Great thing, gard ening." “It was gardening that knocked him out in the first place." “That’s strange. What kind?" “Roof.” Hard to Find Things. He —Where are my collars, dear? She —I don’t really know. He—Well, yesterday I couldn’t find my shirts; this morning my ties were missing; now I can’t find my collars. The only place I know of worse than my bureau Is my card index system. The Publicist’s Mistake. “What this town needs most," said the eminent publicist, “Is a thorough cleaning up, about a dozen new bridges and a first-class subway sys tem." “You are mistaken," replied the av erage citizen. ‘What this town needs most is a good lef-handed pitcher.” All Right Without Assistance. It isc probable that many queens of the kitchen share the sentiment good naturedly expressed by a Scandinavian servant, recently taken into the serv ice of a young matron of Chicago. The youthful assumer of household cares was disposed to be a trifle pat ronizing. "Now, Lena,” she asked earnestly, “are you a good cook?" “Ya-as, ‘m, I tank so," said the girl with perfect naivete, "if you vill not try to help me.” —June Lippincotts. Not on the Market. Tompkins—Ventley has received a million dollars for his patent egg dat ing machine. You know it is absolute ly interference-proof, and dates cor rectly and indelibly as the egg is be ing laid. Dewley—' • the machine on the mar ket yet? Tcmpkins—Oh, my, no! and it won’t be on the market. The patent was bought by the cold storage trust. A Strauss Heaven. Senator Depew, at a recent dinner in New York, said of Richard Strauss’ music: “To hear Strauss’ ‘Elektra’ or his ‘Domestic Symphony’ always makes me think of the old Scotch piper who said; “ ‘Ah, there’s ane nicht I s’all ne’er forget. There were nineteen pipers besides mysel’ all in a wee bit parlor, all playin’ different tunes. I just thought I was in heaven!’" Big Future for Him. The visitor to the Sunday school had been asked to talk to the scholars. His theme was the possibility of youth. He dwelt at some length upon the attainments of men of obscure childhood, and to point his remark turned to a little child near at hand and said: “Tell us your name, little man." In a voice heard through the room, the little man piped up: "Sarah Watkins, sir." HOMESEEKERS EXCURSION RATES TO TEXAS AND NEW MEXICO POINTS DUR ING 1911.
