R- Hmllton Wrtten of Recent Visit to Plattevllle. Wisconsin where a New Industry Has Arisen. In the very early days of the settlement of Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin, Galena being the chief center, lead minine was one of the leading in dustries. As a paying business this has loner since ceased, owing in chief, to the excessive expense involved in the deep sub-water raining. In many of the mining districts, however, a new industry has arisen. The miner of the early day threw out of his shaft as refuse, two substances besides stone and clay. These they called, the one black-jack from its dark appearance; the other drybone from its porous, bone-like structure. For years these lay in the mounds at the mouth of the shaft. It was finall...

Neville, Mayor of Bloomington and member of the Illinois warehouse and railway commission, died suddenly -while visiting at West Baden. Mayor Neville was appointed by Gov.
