TALGA. (FHOM OPH OWN CORRESPONDENT). Talga, Ff liruary 3. The Star of North mine has been granted exemption to allow the proprietary company to concentrate their endeavours upon the erection of machinery to treat (lie stone.

Ou the llewarjl mine wQrk is still being continued in the new lower shaft, which is now down something like GO feet, with the water getting troublesome. In consequence of tliia bailing has to be resorted t<>, mid progress is necessarily slow.
