In the conHti-uction of the plant there has been quite a radical departure from the plans of any other plants In the country. Old Ideas ahve been combined, modified or enlarged upon, and several original ideas have been brought into play. The mill has been built after much study of economy in the matter of space, without cramping, and with a view to tbe greatest saving of labor, and in the length of time required for treatment, for in the latter was seen the possibility of increas DRS. vonWEDELSTAEDT any other in use. certain ,-mencies being employed to assist the cyanide that are altogether new.

The company is at present, treating some "blue" ore. which is difficult to cyanide. It is oxidized by the introduction of a dioxide solution, ami the results are being carefully watched. Every "wash" is retained, standardized and used as solution, and none of tbe cyanide is allowed to get into the stream below the plant. The ore is being treated very coarse- HARRY MERAY C ffices Olympic Block, Opposite B. &. M. Depot, i el., B. H. 202...

When I reached the building on my return from the restaurant, everybody bad gone, and the place was as lila i u and silent as a cave, but I let myself in at a side, door and groped my way up stairs, fumbling in my pockets for a match.

I could feel the Dose and eye sockets against my fingers, and, a stubble o beard pricked my palm. Now, gentlemen, this may seem like nothing as I tell It here, with the Incandescents ablaze and people passing to and fro. but In that black, deserted rookery it was the Incarnation of horror.
