From the Minneapolis Journal.
A French engineer proposed last
ear to the directors of the Interna
tional Exposition to be givaa la the
''reuch capital in the year 1900 the
iKglntr of a hole to the depth of one
mile. The idea was favorably re
ceived, but on investigation the mag-
Itude of the undertaking became so
pparent that the idea has been
ropped. It will, therefore, be neces
sary for those who desire to descend a
mile into the bowels of the earth to
come to Calumet, for nowheres else
on earth are there available openings
f such depth. Within less than a
mile of each other in this raining
town there are three vertical sharts
each nearly one mile in depth. The
deepest of this trio is the Red Jacket
shaft of the Calumet and Ilecla cop
per mine, which has reached its full
depth of 4,900 feet. Five Eiffel tow
ers could be dropped down this hole,
were it wide enough, and the top of
the fifth would reach above the sur
face only to such a height as would al
low It to be easily covered by the steel
shaft house now being built over the
The! was begun In 18?9 and it
took st i'u years to sink It, showing an
average progress of 700 feet annually,
early all of which has been blue trap
rock, one of the most refractory of
minerals. The conglomerate carrying
copper was the bed of an ancient sea,
nd is composed of pebbles aud gravel
worn by the action of the water, such
s are seen on sea beaches or lake
ake shores, cemented into a solid
mass of cale and silica. By the perco-
ation of the waters and the decompo
sition of certain constituents of the
rock little cavities were formed, in
which were deposited small nodules of
copper by the water.
The Red Jacket shaft is 151 by 25
feet in size inside the timbers, and
contains six compartments, being
fully equal in working capacity to half
a dozen mining shafts of ordinary size.
The shaft Is solidly timbered. The
adamantine firmness of the rock ren
ders it secure for all time to come,
the timbers being merely to carry the
trulliic of ineu and mineral, of water
and electricity, which surges between
the sunlight and the bottom. In four
compartments will slip uo aud down
the ponderous cages, carrying ten ton
loads of rock at the speed of cxprers
trains. Up and down In these cages
will also ride the men who mine the
rock from the old sea bud. In one
compartment will be the great iron
pump pipes, and down another de
scends the steady current of com
pressed air, which runs the drills a
mile below the engine bouse. Bunched
in slender cables are the copper wiref
which cvey electricity to light the
reccsse the mine, threads of wire
that afluí 'elepbo.ilc communication
from the most remote drift to any oth
er portion of the property, for the Cal
umet and Ilecla has a telephone ex
change of Its own, which in size and
perfection of equipment puts to the
blush the facilities of many preten
tious towns, and which reaches every
office on the surface and every por
tion of the great mine. There are
Ore alarm wires, too, for the Calumet
and Ilecla spares no cost to make its
employes as safe as skill and lavish
outlay of money can render them.
The slnkrog of the shaft posesscs
deep interest from a scientific stand
point. Observers ascending to great
heights in balloons have been able to
secure data of surpassing Importance
regarding meteorological conditions,
aud observations made at the depth of
a mile afford positive Information.
The Red Jacket shaft has shattered
some of the deeply cherished theories,
and there are text books dow extant
in the higher institutions of learning
which must be overhauled, because
facts have succeeded theory. The
mines of the Comstock lode lo Nevada
were the deepest In the world. The
mines were very hot, and on the deep
er levels some of the more pious min
ers were quite positive that they
smelled sulphur, and refused to go
further down for fear of encroaching
upon the dominion of the devil. Ac
cording to deductions, the bottom of
the Red Jacket should be about the
proper temperature to boil eggs. Care
ful tests have determined that the
normal temperature of the rock Is 87.0
degrees Fahrenheit at the bottom.
The rock temperature at the depth of
105 feet was 59 degrees Fahrenheit,
showing an excess of 28.6 degrees to
95 feet. There was, however, a
gain of 8 degrees In temperature In
the last 500 feet sunk, a much more
rapid increase than at lesser depths.
Notwithstanding the beneficial ef
fects of ventilation and compressed
air, men working at the bottom of the
deep shaft do not have an especially
easy berth, though liberally paid.
They are compelled to wear rubber
boots and rubber coats, as the water
found in the mine at that great depth
Is most corrosive to the human body.
There is machinery enough on the
surface to drive all the street cars In a
city like St. Louis at this single one of
eleven shafts, and It Is housed In fire
proof buildings tnat would be the
pride of a city of 100,000 Inhabitants.
From a letter written by the Rev. J.
Gunderman of Piniondale, Mich., we
are permitted tu make this extract: "1
have no hesitation in recommending
Dr. King's new discovery, as the re
sults were almost irarvclous in the
case of my wife. Wb'lo I was pastor
of the R'tptist church at Rives Junc
tion she was brought down with pneu
monia succeeding la grippe. Terrible
paroxysms of coughing would last for
hours with little Interruption and it
seemed as if she could not survive
them. A friend recommended Dr.
King's new discovery; it was quick in
its work and highly satisfactory in re
sults." Trial bottles free at Eagle

Yuma Times: A corps of trusted
employes of La Fortuna gold mining
and milling company came in Sunday
evening in charge of a bar of bullion
aggregating $70,000. It is a product
of a thirty days' run of the twenty
stamps at La Fortuna and Is next to
the largest bar of bullion ever brought
to Yuma. Wells, Fargo & Co. took
charge of the gold at this point. La
Fortuna is to-day the best producing
liold mine in the west according to
its stage of development. -Solomonvllle
Bulletin: Lust Sun
day afternoon while the San Simon
was over Its banks two Mexican boys
killed a large white ibis. The ibis isa
very rare bird in the United States
and is found only in the lower part of
Florida and along tne mouth of the
Colorado river below Yuma. It Is a
very remarkable occurrence to And
one this far from its haunts. It must
have followed the San Simon down
during its flood.
The Arlzooa Stockman says the
easiest way to get rid of skunks is .o
roll a few erains of strychnine in a
ball of lard and place it where the an
imal will Olid it. Skunks are very fond
of lard and never fall to eat the poison
when prepared In this way. Better
put yonr house cats and dogs where
they cannot get the poison wheu It Is
put out, for they will cat It as quick
as a skunk and with a fatal result.
Electric bitters is a medicine suited
for any season, but perhaps more genj
erally needed when the languid ex
hausted feeling prevails, when the
liver is tornid and sluggish and the
need of a touic and alterative is felt.
A prompt use of this medicine has oft
en averted long and perhaps fatal bil
ious fevers. No medicine will act
more surely Iq counteracting and free

tion, dizziness yield to electric bitfers.
