What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

The Watseca mining compiny, operating the Watseca mine in the Rochester district of Madison county, says the Standard, has made several important discoveries of mineral in its properties lately. Carlton H. Hand, general. manager for the company. who came direct from the mine said, ‘‘It is true, that we have made some discover- ies, and they are important. The first strike was made in the new vein knownas the Alameda, south of the 450 foot level. , We had never explored this vein south of the shaft because it had vot shown up well where it had been cut above. The vein at the 450 foot level is strong and carries good |. values, as does the ore body from which we have been taking ore right along. ‘The ore is base, but we will concentrate it and ship the concentrates, We have also opened a new. chute north of ‘the shaft. It is really a new vein; one we did not know we had. This gives the company three veins of pay ore, and one’ about which very little is known, as it has not been pros- pected sufticiently to determine its value. The pay veins are all good and strong and make the Watseca a coming gold producer of the first magnitude. There are two shafta, one of which is’560 feet deep and is on the pitch of the vein, and the other is 460 and ts vertical. The incline known as Goodale, as it was sunk by him for eastern men.

The methodist church was crowd- evening, and the exercises very were pleasing. wn ‘ | It was the opinion of Mr. Goodale \that the volume of water would! | decrease to such an extent that the }pumps could handle it without itrouble, and subsequent work has proved the correctness of his theo-| ry. At that time about 1,000 gal- lons of water per minute were pouring into the shaft, which was only 200 feet deep; but shortly after our company began work the Yolume of water was reduced to 308 galons per minute.’ This is avcounted for by the fact that we drained the ledges, which Mr. Goodale would have done had his backers kept the work going. The mine is now yielding about 400 gal- lons per minute, but the workings are much deeper than they were | when the ore bodies were full of moisture and 1,000 gallons per minute were being raised to the After a land song by Sunday the choir} school, the divine!
