Better Than Losinsr Diamonds. As has been stated before, a telegram telegram from Abbeville announces the discovery of a solid bed of rock Bait in Orange, which lies in the swamp off the south coast of Louisiana. The land is the property of Joe Jefferson, the actor, and is very near the Petite Anse, or Avery's Island, where a large deposit of subterranean salt, the largest largest in the country, ' has been worked for years. Mr. Jefferson believed that there was a salt mine on his island and sunk a shaft 500 feet in his search for it. A second sinking struck a solid mass of rock salt at a depth of ISO feet, and penetrated several feet into it. This salt paragraph is being extensively copied and has caused any amount of fresh talk about the great comedian, who really has no need for such advertising. 4
