Down in a Silver mine. Those who have never personally inspected the lower Levels of our mines May obtain some idea of the degree of heat to be found therein by visiting the Savage works at the change of shifts. The men a packed together As close As they can stand on the Cage Are Pope up out of the Shaft All steaming hot for All the world like a Bunch of asparagus just lifted from the pot. They make their appearance in a Cloud of steam that pours up continuously from the a a Depths profound a and Are dimly seen until they step Forth upon the floor of the works. As the men land and separate each carries with him for half a minute his Little private Cloud of vapor. As this passes off the Man is seen to be naked from the Waist up his skin As wet As though he had just been lifted out of a Pool of water. The men bring up with them besides the steam an amount of heat that May be Felt by the Spectator As they pass. All this is at the top of the Shaft where it is considered quite Cool that then must it be hundreds of feet below where the men started from Down where the water stands at 157 degrees fahrenheit Down there no steam is seen it is too hot for it. It is Only when the hot moist air coming up from the lower regions strikes the Cool air toward the top of the Shaft that it takes the form of steam. Down there where the men come from you must keep your hands off the pump column and the pipes and if you pick up any Iron tool you will at once put it Down without being told to do so. Down there they handle things with gloves on or wrap rags about the Drill they Are guiding and Iron apparatus they Are moving and Down there too you will learn to keep your Mouth shut after you have drawn a few mouthfuls of hot air into your lungs. Perspire it is no name for it. You Are like a sponge that is being squeezed. You Are ready to believe that you have ten million pores to every Square Inch of surface or As Many More As any authority May mention and that All these pores Are As big As the cells of a Honey comb. You go for ice water and it almost seems to Hiss As it passes Down your Throat you keep going for it and thus in a Short time find out what becomes of the tons and tons of ice that Are daily consumed in the mines. Remain below among the miners for an hour or two and when you Are finally popped out at the top of the Shaft All red hot and steaming among the other asparagus sprouts you will appreciate the Beauty the Light and the coolness of the upper Virginia Nev Enterprise.
