years. Tiff is a mica-like formation,

difficult to. separate from ores, has
worried operutors greatly. How Kava
uaugh came to Jopiin carries with it a
pretty satire. He was directed to thLs

Korea, as the manager of some coal
mines for the mikado. He saw- the
great demand for idols and seals
among the natives and concluded ic
would be a good thing to establish an
idol factory there. He learned that the
Koreans required gods and seals to
guard against ill luck that were bright
and glittering, shain-ly and capable of
withstanding hard usage, as the Ko
rean carries his god and lucky seal
around with him.
Kavanaugh knew that tiff was found
in California, but that it was too brit
tle to stand grinding and shaping. The
Missouri product, he learned, was
amenable to such treatment, and he
went directly to Jopiin. He proposes
to ship a carload of the stuff to Ping
Tan open an idol factory there in
competition with the native god mak
ers and give the people idols and seals
more durable and less costly than the
article to which they are accustomed.
Should the venture prove successful
financially, and Kavanaugh believes it
will, he expects to make the shipment
of tiff from Jopiin to his Korean fac
torv a regular thing in the future and
thereby establish a market for the now-
worthless byproduct of the mines.

claimed that the water pipes needed
repairing and that he complained to
Mrs. Pratt. It is said that an argu

that Hart pushed her down the cellar

charge which he says he will appeal.
