The New Eldorade.
A prominent citizen of Denver,
just returneq from the Wood River
country, in Spite of his natural loy
alty to his booming Sratf, gives the
following interesting and seductive
terns concerning the Wood River
country: The region occupies about
20,000 square miles of central Idaho.
Silver predominates and although the
Veins are not phenomenally large
their number and !5.vernge richness
beats anvthins in the history of
mining. Some 5,000 locations have
been made, and paying ore has al
most invanbly commenced at the
grass root. Hie yield last year was
$1,200,000 and this year it will be
$3,000,000, and the average of all
ores worked is about $200 per ton.
In Wood River camps proper the
ores average about $125 sliver per
on and 65 per cent, lead, but just
over the divide to the north they are
ot dry, stisphuret and ruby class,
yielding $5000 to $1,000 per ton in
car-load lots. There are six smelt
ers, two stamp mills and one ore sam
ler in the Wood River and Saw
tooth regions, their combined capa
city being over 200 tons per day,
and yet .the mines ate putting up
thousand of tons of ore(for which
there are no reduction facilities) a-

to effect sales of good property in
that country, as the strong fissure

ifornia, Philadelphia, Chicago and
Salt Lake men have secured the best
hold thus far. The country is splen
didly watered and timbered, and the
mines lay at such low elevations as
to be econamically worked. Hailey

and' will make a town of 5000 to 10,

Florida sugar Lands.
Rapid progress is being made in
cutting the canal from Caloosatchie
ver to Lake Okeechobee, by which
millions of acres of valuable sugar
lands, it is asserted, will be reclaimed.
One of the prime movers and origin
ators in the reclamation of some
200,000 acres of sugar land in Louis
iana, in an interview published in
the Florida Times, expresses himself
as greatly surprised at the quantity
and value of the sugar lands in
Florida. He declares the lands of
the Okeechobee Company, located in
the Kissimmee Valley, to be of the
nest character he ever saw, possess-
ng in the quality of the land, cli
matic advantages and absence ot
frost, all those properties most' con-
uctive to successful sugar culture.
While in Louisiana they are com
pelled to Cut cane while still green,
and often lose a whole crop from
frost, in Florida they allow it to ma-
are to full growth. From a person-
1 inspection of the lands bordering
on Lake Tohopekaliga and north of
Lake Cyprus he found large tracts of
and possessing the prominent natu
ral requisites to the growth and ma
turity of rice and sugar can under
the most favorable conditions. From
all indications South Florida is des
tined to become an important con
tributor to the production of 6ugar
cane in the United States. Already
a number of Cuban planters have ex
amined the land, and expressed
themselves in favor of investing their
capital in sugar lands in Florida.

A Valuable invention,
Says the Albany Democrat, last
Tuesday Hiram Ifenton, of this city,
eceived the patent on his magnetic
crold ( enarator. This is one of the
most ingenins as well as valuable in
ventions ever introduced on the Pa
cific Coast and will stand by the
side of many of the wonderful inven
tions of the present time. To Mr,
Kenton it will, we are confident
prove a gold mine. To accomplish
what it will do in all its details has
been attempted by many ingenins
minds, all of whom have failed, but
Mr. Kenton is confident now that he
has struck it right and obtained just
what is wanted. For the last four
years he has made this his study, and
it should be a matter of local pride
that he has succeeded.
The object of the separator is to
separate the gold from magnetic
sand and other substances, one of
the most troublesome being a chlo
rine, a greasy appearing acid found
particularly near the ocean. Th
plan of doing this is .really ingenius
and shows a thorough knowledge of
magnets, eta A series of copper
pans, are arranged in a wooden sluice.
which may be divided and doubled
or trebled as the sluice descends,
each pan being lower than the one
above, and at the same time descend
ing. On the bottom of the pans,
quick-silver is spread, forming a
coating, without eating the copper.
It each of the pans perforated copper
plates are fitted, and under each ate
a series of large magnets, from fifty
to a hundred and fifty, according to
the size of the separator. Over each
of the nans, running from the sides
of the sluice are two beams, through
which copper screws partly incased
in zinc are run, resting on the cop
per plates. The sand, water, etc.,
re thrown into a perforated arrange
ment at the top, which throws off the
large substances and allows the sand,
gold, water etc., to pass down through
the sluice over the perforated plates,
pans, etc., forming a perfect riffle.
The quick-silver attracts the gold
through the perforated plates, and it
adhetes to it, while the magnets un
derneath disturb the magnetic sand,
keeping it at the top, so that the
water carries it on through the sluice
out at the bottom. Mixed with the
water, gold and sand is the trouble
some chlorine which would collect
and eat the plates, rendering it im
possible to save the gold, but to op
pose this enemy, the copper plates
are given a negative power, repell
ing it, while the zinc on the screws
having a positive force attracts it,
and at the same time by reason of
the copper pins being connected with
the plates below, an electric current
is formed and it . is continued on

Professor Beal furnishes a state
ment to the. Rural New Yorker, that
a neighbor who was a poor cultiva

because his soil was poor and had not

had rich soil, which kept the plant
growing with more luxuriance, with
later ripening of the fruit.

formerly stood is really the right
way, whilst many plant a tree as they
would a post. Roots are ot two
kinds the young and tender rootlets
composed entirely of cells, the feeder
of the tree, always found near the
surface getting air and moisture, and
roots of over one year old, which
serve only as supporters of the trees
and as conductors of the food.
Hence the injury that ensues when
the delicate rootlets are so deeply
buried in earth. Placiug fresh or
green manure in contaot with the
young roots is another great error.
The place to put manure is on surface
where the elements disintegrate, dis
solve and carry it downward. Nu
merous forms of fungi are generated
and reproduced by the application
of such manure directly io the roots,
and they immediately attack the
tree. It is very well to enrich the
soil at transplanting the tree, bnt the
manure, it to be in eontact with or
very near the roots, should be thor
