WHOLE NO. A MOUNTAIN OF POTASH. Most Wonderful Discovery in Potash Ever Made on American Continent Believed to Have Been Made on long Bun, Near Gaines. The discovery of a mountain ol potash-bearing rock on Long Kun at the little town of Davis, about five miles from Gaiues, is to all upjwar- ances an established fact, sa.v s the Westtield Free Press. The mountain several hundred feet northeast of Davis is a mass of Pocono sand stone and this stone seems filled with po- tassium nitrate or salt peter. Colonel Henry C. Demming. Coii- sulting State Geologist, and one ol the leading geologists of this country nas spent two dajfa ou the property, which is owned by James Mi-Oul- lough, S. M. McCullough. Jonu T. VanDusen and C. W. Reese, and he is enthusiastic over the wonderful pro- mise which this hill gives to America as a source of potash lor American farms. For three davs Colonel Demming has been going over the property a force of men taking samples of the rock from the foot ot the hill to the crest of the mountain opposite the Gurnee coal mountains. Every- where the rock has been uncovered b> blasts of dynamite it has shown up and floury with KNO3, the potash that, makes farms advance in fertility as if Dy magic. Colonel Demming anabzed tbe mineral at his laboratory on June 14 and again on July 26. The first sample showed potash JO.49% aud -the last sample showed the presence of chemically pure potash to the ex- tent of While these are from selected samples, the richness of the rock as far as has been revealed by blasting, increases rather than de- creases as the surface is penetrated. Analysis of a sample of the rock was made by the chemist at Alfred University, who found the piece he tested contained 3U.6 per cent, pot- The German potash mines which supply the world are from rock yield- ing from 12% to 10% potash. From all that has been learned about the Long Run rock it will yield a higher percentage than the German mines. In places the potash lies between lav ers of the rock and here it can be scraped off with a knife. This is practically the chemicallj pure pot- ash of commerce. But in part of the formation thus far uncovered, the potash seems to saturate the rock it- self, giving it almost a limestone ap- pearance. Colonel Demming, who served in the civil war directly under General Ulysses S. Grant and also with Gen- eral George A. Ouster, though well past seventy, is a mightv spry indi- vidual when it comes to going ovei a mining proposition, and he has been all over the Hill KNO3 and ar- rived at the following deductions: that there is a mass of rock in that hill 5fOOO feet Wide, 6.000 feet long and 400 feet high which from sur- face samples, or samples taken with- in a of the surface, indicates that hill is loaded with potash. the mass proposition of be, of course, can not be orei stated until a ton or two of the rock could be ground and the pot- ash extracted, but the Colonel, who is a hard-headed geologist and one who has put in his long and busy life Ipok- ing over mines and prospects, is san- guine tha't this discovery is of won- derful importance to this country, in fact, one of the greatest mineral dis- coveries of many years. Colonel Demming is only just back from Colorado and next week he goes down into Mexico nearly a thousand miles from the border to inspect a mine for American and Mexican cap- italists. The owners of Hill KNO3 are fortunate indeed to have secured so able a geologist to go over their property and had the Colonel not been deeply interested in this re- markable discovery, so unusual and unexpected as it was. it is doubtful if his presence could have been se- cured. But he came and has given  the Cripple Creek or Klondike btrikes for potash is vastly more important to America that gold. It is the one mineral absolutely ne- cessarj to agriculture and the onlv mineral America lacked until the Ti- discovery. The discover.v was not announced until after experts in mineralogy, c-hemistrv and geolog) had made cer- tain that it existed in commercial quantities. .They lound almost solid mountains of potash- It means that America is at last free irom having to depend upon the w ishes ot the German government to whether this country shall have potash in sufficient quantities to de- velop fully its agricultural resources. During the war the supply was en- tirely cut off. with tho result that American agriculture suffered severe- ly and land has become poor. In peace times German production of potash is controlled by the German government by permitting only a cer- tain amount to be taken from the ground each >ear. Although Amer- ica spent more than a year in the German market prior to the war, the limited production made it impossible to get the quantities necessary to full development of ag- ricultural possibilities. Immediately following announce- ment of the discovery in Tioga coun- ty, land values jumped to many times what the land could have been bought for a few weeks ago. One w ho had begged a real estate agent to sell his place for two weeks ago, Friday refused to sell for It is expected that a rush of fortune hunters into the district will begin at once, and that a new Klondike will spring up. First intimation that the moun- tains contained the precious mineral was several weeks ago, when John T. VanDusen picked up a peculiar-look- ing rock. He sent it to Colonel Dem- ming, with the request that he ex- amine it and see if it contained min- erals. Colonel Demming's examina- tion showed that the rock contained minerals, and he recommended that an analysis'be made. This was soon arranged for, and the report came back that it contained 3 per cent, potabh. A visit to the mountains bv Colonel Demming followed shortly afterward, and he and Van Dusen dug into the mountainside with picks to determine the quantities of potash. A short distance from the surface rocks an- alvzed 10 per cent, potash. They dug further and found many rocks that contained 20 per cent. Still deeper, it analyzed 40 per cent., the highest anaivsjs, being 44.8 per cent. Specimens were also sent to var- ious colleges tor analvsis. amon? them the New York State School of Agriculture, at Alfred t'niversitv, Cornell University and a college in Wisconsin, with favorable reports from all. Col. Demming was asked, if the mineral had been found in commer- cial quantities. he replied, "not in commer- cial quantities, but in colossal quan- tities." "A careful search was made of the deposits of the Col. Dem- ming added, "and the rocks are sat- urated with potash and nitre, which is also a most valuable mineral in ag- riculture. Heretofore we have got- ten'our nitre from Chili. The moun- tain 1s composed of rock known as the Pocono sandstone, No. X. and the Catskill. No. IX. lv ing directlv un- 'lerneath A careful calculation "has been made of average per cent. of potash held in the mountain and the lowest result is tons'. Potash is now quoted at a ton. Experts believe" that the pure article can be extracted from these rocks on a large scale at a cost of less than >1 ii a ton. "The extraction of nitre from the. rocks is comparatively simple. First, UK- pulverisation of the rock to pass through a CO-mesh sieve; then tbe placing of the crushed material in IHTKV vats, and the application of hot I tioii became acute, efforts of various kinds to extract potash from other Mibstances attempted in addi- tion to continuing the hunt lor hid- neu mines, was carried to Alaska aud all American possessions. Efforts were made to produce it from Pacific seaweed. At another time it was thought that enough might be extracted from sugar beets; waste Irom distilleries was also tried. Small quantities were finally produc- ed from alunite, found in Utah. A few small deposits of the mineral were also found in 'scatered but the qualities were not sufficient to warrant mining. llarnsburg, Aug. H. C. Demming still declines to make pub- lic the names of the chemists who anabzed the Tioga countv potash rocks, on which he based his state- ment that the nnd was one of the largest in the world.- In his an- nouncement Colonel Demming assert- ed that analvses and physical tests have been made by the New York State School of Agriculture, Alfred University, Cornell University, a Wis- consin college and the Demming lab- oratory, in this city. It is not denied that the Pocono sands of Tioga and Potter counties contain potash, but local geologists who are familiar with the district say that the value of the deposit de- pends upon the quantity of available salts that can be reclaimed. Colonel Demming bases his large claims upon his assertion that the strata of Pocono sandstone in the mountain at Davis station are im- pregnated with the salts to such an extent that chemical analysis shows as high as 44.8 per cent, pure potash. Samples of the rock show that it runs in layers, and that when these lav ers are split apart deposits of salts in white crystals are seen. These deposits are of varying thickness, some of them half an inch. The crystals lie like butter between slices of bread. They declare that the Pocono sand- stone if taken from the hill in large quantities would show a considerably low-er percentage of pure potash, and that selected of the rock do not justify Colonel Demming in claiming that the whole mountain will run high in the valuable salts. There may be de'posits of potash in the Tioga county hills, but some state officials, who are naturally deeply in- terested in the 0nd, declare that the commercial worth of the deposit must be demonstrated. "The formation of the country in the western part of Tioga county is entirely favorable for a potash declared a Philadelphia geogolist, "but that doesn't mean there are millions of tons of potash lying up there waiting to be dug out of the ground and loaded into cars." "I wouldn't advise anybody to get excited over the reported find of Colonel Demming, or invest -any money in potash mines at this stage of the game. It's too risky. There may be a mountain of potash rock in Tioga county, and there may be a mountain that has some streaks of potash bearing rock, but whether there is enough rock that runs suf- ficiently high in free potash to make it worth while to get out os the ques- tion that only a commercial plant will determine I ''The geological formation is fav- I orable. There are large beds of rock salt to the north in New York state, and there are oil wells to the west in Pennsylvania. The countrv was once the bed of a sea, which was in past ages rent and folded by great up- 1 heavals and earth disturbances. In I any district where beds of salt are I found it is possible to discover some j potash. In fact, the potash in this form can only be located near a salt deposit. How much potash can be I faund is another question. j "It is only a practical demonstra- tion by level-headed men that will de- I termine whether Tioga countv will j find wealth in potash or whether the supplv is so scant that it will cost more to extract the salts than they ara worth."

Herald Garage Proprietors Must Keep Rec- ords of Cars Stored or Left for Repairs. Garages throughout Pennsylvania have had attention called by letter to the provisions of the act approved by Governor Sproul June 30, requiring that records must be kept of, all cars stored or left for repairs in everv garage in the state. The provisions of this act are now in force. A special form has been pre- pared by the State Highway Depart- ment, and this must be used by the garage men. Records must be kept in ink or indelible pencil and shall be open to inspection of police or other authorities for one vear from date. A stiff fine is provided for fail- ure to maintain the record. Police authorities declare that the keeping of tttese records will do much to end the stealing of automobiles. The record' sheet contains spaces wherein a complete description of the car is make of machine, manufacturer's number, make of en- gine, number of engine, and other information. The sheet has been prepared so that it will be of great assistance to garage men in keeping "tabs" on their own business. Highway Commissioner Sadler in his letter to garage owners and oper- ators sets worth the entire section covering record keeping It is sec- tion S of House Bill 395 (Act as follows: "That the proprietor of everv pub- lic garage and motor vehicle repair shop shall cause a record to be kept after the manner to be prescribed by the State Highway Commissioner of the names of any and all persons owning or having charpe of any mo- tor vehicle stored, left for repair, or purpose at anv such public garage or motor vehicle repair shop, together with the make, manufac- turer's number, name of state of reg- istration and the registration num- ber of such motor vehicles. Such record shall be kept in intror indel- ible pencil and shall be open to the inspection of police officers or other proper authorities. Such records shall be retained and be available for a period of one year after entrv but not thereafter He shall also immediatelv not if v the local police authorities'and State Highway Com- missioner of anv such motor vehicle whereon the manufacturer's number or mark has apparenth bejen altered, obliterated or removed With the Hisrhwav Department receiving complete information con- cerning stolen -and paraaes keepinu records of cars received or stored, it will be possible quickh- to locate stolen automobiles if they re- niajn in Pennsvlvania.
