as well as underground. A large resi

At 50 feet more will cut vein. In this
cut mining cars will run. This is arrang

and dumped at the mill with the siugle
handling. The grading of the road bed
is finished and the ties and iron is being
placed. They have all in all, about 7000
tons of ore in sight 5000 tons ou the

Mining- Future Prospects.
The mining interests of North Carolina
have suffered more severely from specu
lation than from any other known cause.
There are a class of men, who may with
propriety be termed "niiuiug hyenas,'
going from place to place hooding miner
al lands for speculation. This practice is
ruinous to the best interests of not only
the laud holder, but the purchaser, Ex
tensive aud valuable tracts of mineral
lands have been bought at farm land
pi ices and organized into companies at
an ndvauee so great as to load down what
otherwise would have been a good pay
ing-enterprise, if honorably conducted.
Mauy North Carolina mines might to-day
be iu operation and producing reasonable
dividends if the speculator had been con
tent with, reasonable returns. But not so.
Each sale must bring a fortune! By
reason of this, Northern and English mar
kets are filed with circulars baits got
ten up in the most approved style, signed
and couutersigned by bogus mining ex
perts, asking for investments at figures
too startliu for even Muuchauseu to
Uu tue other iiauu, some good men
have gone to work prudently, advancing
slowly, overcoming difficulties as they
come to them, until now they are estab
lished. They make but little fuss, but
by steady, legitimate work have gained
position. It is this class ot men, nnu
they alone, who give toue and strength
to mining in any section.
Aa regards our mineral interests, North
Carolina has seen her darkest days aud
her future is assured. I Her prosperity
will come slowly for a j while, but the
more surely by reasou of the experience
of past years.
We have gold, silver, copper, lead,
iron aud mica in vast quantities ; but to
extract these from their native places is a
business, laborious and expensive, and
not a lot of figures aud maps. It is work,
honest hard work, directed by cultivated
braiu force that is needed no other plau
can succeed. Those who look on niiuiug
u any other light will j fiud themselves
badly mistakeu. Meu who are not afraid
to take hold of pick, when occasion re
quires, are the men who will make min-
ng a success.
Rowan County at Atlanta.
BKIXO IN SPECIMENS.
The fact that the counties surrounding
us are busily engaged iu preparing ' arti
cles for exhibition at the Atlanta Exposi
tion and the further fact that uo one
seemed to care whether! this county was
represented iu either her agricultural or
mineral resources j prompted a move
ment on the part of several young men
to have a fair collection of our resources
made and sent to Atlanta. To defray the
expense incurred iu making the collection
aud labeling the articles a paper was
presented to ' our citizens asking for cou
tiibutious. This met with such poor sue
cess (only $25 or $30) that a thorough
canvass was not made. Any further con-
