inuhos thick, and solid metal, and
chunks of oxidized ore of same
width that he whittled with a pookel
knife, No assays have been made
on the rook ; it is not necessary,
hut pieces of free-gold ore, if ore it
can be oalled at all, run over !500,
000 per ton. The Mollie Gibson
never produced any ore that oarrios
more ounces in silver per ton than
this Isabella does in gold. With
every hour's work the streak is
lengthening and widening. Join
ing this metallic body there are six
feet of quarts that will run from
1000 to 12000 per ton..
Mauager Kilburn said: "I don't
like to say anything that will ex
cite people any more than they are
at present. The nietallio ore body
has doubled in size both ways since
yesterday moring. Some of the
pieces of ore are 80 per cent gold.
I never saw such mineral, and I do
not believe its like was ever mined
in this or any other camp iu the
world. We have no assays taken
on the rock, but a ton of it could
be picked out that would run any
where from 150,000 to 1200,000.
The strike was made in a uew ore
body at a depth of 850 feet. The
chute has been cut at the seventh
level 200 feet above, and also at
the fifth. At the latter place the
aisay was obtained in tbe breast of
the drift yesterday, on two feet of
ore that went better tbau $1000 per
ton. I here 18 at least blocked out
in one level, between the ninth and
seventh levels, 15,000,000 worth of
ore."

New War Preserve Bodies.
A Neapolitan physician has Intro
luced a new system of preserving
bodies from corruption. lie simply
gives the body a series of baths for an
indefinite period. For anatomical pur
poses the body may be made to'rcsume
!ts primary freshness, but If the bath
treatment is sufficiently indulged in
the subject .attains th density and
consistency of marble and gives forth
a metallic ring when touched with
metal. Though the sole Intention of
thi; Inventor was to preserve siibjeols

that hi process may supersede re

"Thanks, no," tnld the other. "How

"Couple of yean, or such a matter."
"Have you tried to quit It since you
began?"

"Suppose you try to quit."
"Why?"
"Simply to test the strength of the

of mine talked to me just at you ire

and tried it for indlgettlon, I think It
