mine I have ever been connected with." lion. .1. K. Pardee, 11 mining expert well known all over Utah, Idaho and Montana, says: "In nil

CHANGES IN MINING METHODS.
Business Offers an Inviting Fit Id as a Call
ing for Young Men.
The ancients thought they knew some
thing about mining, but notwithstanding
the experience of many centuries, recent
discoveries In science show that .scien
tific mining has just begun. Though
there is an element of uncertainty in the
result of .1 tour of prospecting, when mineral-bearing
rock Is once found recent
study enables the metallurgist to extract
therefrom many products that are of
value la the commercial world.
The ancients knew nothing of the
modem methods of treating ores, and in
consequence of recent discoveries many
ores that were once thrown away are now
found to carry great values. New terri
tory is dally being explored, new ledges
found and new placer beds uncovered.
All of these occurrences emphasize the
fact that the mining Industry, If not still
In its infancy, has not yet passed through
the stages of early development.
The methodical prospector and the
painstaking metallurgist have advantages
over the miners of ancient days that are
$ marked as in modern agriculture over
the methods pursued when fields were
-plowed with forked sticks and grain was
threshed with the flail. Invention and
chemistry, by their working together, are
opening up a new era in the history of
mining, and just as the agricultural land
.of old ate reworked, so are mineral-bear
lug lands that were once 'thought to be
exhausted, are beln.g reworked and yield
Ing values, even greater than when first
To the young man .who .would achieve
distinction as .speclallsts:there is no bet
ter field than one wherein the work 'has a
bearing upon the .mining 'Industry. The
expert geologist, engineer, metallurgist or
chemist, In any of the several branches
df.hls. science, will always be in demand
by the owners of mineral-bearing lands.
In conjunction with agriculture, mining Is
the prime source of wealth, for manufac
turing and commerce are dependent upon
the products of the earth. With more
painstaking study, deeper researches in
all matters of science, the great Industry
of mining will reach an importance not
dreamed of by the old time miners. It Is
quite apparent that the age of mining has
just begun. Seattle Times.
Pleasant Way to Travel.
The' most delightful way to travel to
the east Is by way of Salt Lake City
