An extensive deposit of mineral - al paint has been discovered within - in a very short distance of : Falls Ci ty.rrhe discoverer , who requested - quested that his name be not mentioned , told a t Tribunc man of the iind and backed up his statements with samples of both the ore and of paints made there- from. This man is one of our well known citizens and is per- fectly reliable. When seen by a reporter he said : "I have known of this deposit of mineral : : paint for a long time , but had no idea of its value. About ten years ago I was work- ing on a house which was being erected on a farm not very far from town and noticed near a 'well on the premises , a pile of peculiar clay like substance which I took to be mineral paint , from the amount of oil it contained. I made inquiry of the owner of the land and learned that the substance had been taken out by- a well augur ten years before. The augur had passed through a layer of the substance at least eighty feet thick. I did not give the matter much thought until I was in Lincoln this winter and learned from paint manufacturers - ers the value of such a deposit. I at once renewed my investigations - tions with the most satisfactory results. The ore from which mineral pain is made exists very near : Falls City in large quantities and a very shod time will witness the development of the lind. " Here the gentleman picked up a large piece of the dark brown oily substance and continued , . Sphinx Club Wins Piano . . The piano cotest which was conducted by Burris Bros. , Dav- ies & Owens and S. L. Davies , closed last Friday. For some time the fight had been between the Sphinx Club and Central school , the other contestants having - jug been left far behind. As the contest neared a close , both sides redoubled their efforts and many votes were cast during the last few hours that the ballot box remained - mained open. The final count of the ballots showed that the Sphinx Club had polled 22,219 votes and Central school had 18,181 votes to their credit. The piano was accordingly awarded to the Sphinx Club. , . .

" ' : ' d' ; ' ' 1-t "This sample is from the original . ; pile that , I noticed at the well anti J has lain exposed to the elements , I freezing and thawing and heat , and rain for twenty years. It is i still rich in oil and seems to have lost none of its original quaJi- tics. " The reporter was then shown a can of paint which had been made by imply grinding the ore and mixing it with raw linseed - S oil. When applied to a hard pine board the paint dried rapidly with a gloss like varnish. The reporter - er secured a sample of the ore , which can be seen at this ofiicc. i ' The ore from which mineral I ) . pain is made is very rare and I western paint manufacturers are compelled to ship their supply from . as far away as Vermont and i New Jersey. This being true S one can readily sec the value of a f discovery of mineral paint in the ; immediate vicinity of , : Falls City ; It means the building up of an , , i , industry of no inconsiderable -il magnitude , for it is evident that , a vein eighty feet thick would . yield an immense quantity of the , _ s ore , the mining and shipping of . which would require the labor of I many men. . The location of a . big paint factory in this city would not he unlilely. Speci- mens of the ore have been sent to Lincoln to be tested and when the report is made an exhaustive investigation of the vein will be made. The gentleman whQ.dis- covered thc deposit assures us , ' that he will have something of 'I importance for publication in the ' very near future. " I .J . The boys were naturally much ! elated over their victory and feel , j2 grateful to their friends for help 4 they go'ave. On Sunday afternoon ' . the new instrument was thoroughly - _ ly tested at the club rooms. A ' " . number of young ladies were in- "I : vited in to do the playing. pave Sowles learned that the contest -r was in progress and sent up a - big box of fine candy , which proved ' . to be just what was needed to r : make } the concert a complete suc- " cess. W. W. Jenne and son Harry left Tuesday on a trip to New York. They were accompanied 10 by , Stella Blanchard who has K been here visiting at the home of 1\11' Jenne. . . . , , y : i , , \ , I , t . . . . - . . .
