The Camp Dry Mines, Which Have
Ileen Shut Down for Some Time,
to Recommence Operation
We learn from good authority that
the numerous phosphate mine3 of the
Camps, known as "dry mines." and
which have not been in operation for
some time, will be active again in the
very near future. The dry mines em employ
ploy employ about twice as many people as
those which are operated by dredges
and known as "wet mines." Some
fifteen or twenty of these dry mines
compose the property of the Camp
oompany and when they are put in
operation again the good times of
several years ago will have returned
and this occasion will be one of rejoic rejoicing
ing rejoicing for all those interested in the wel welfare
fare welfare of Dunnellon.
A survey has just been completed
and the work of building a right-of-way
to all the mines of the Camp
company south of Dunnellon, will be
started at once, over which electric
power will be furnished these plants
for lighting and operating purposes.
Dunnellon has for many years been
the center of the phosphate mining in
Florida and some of the richest de deposits
posits deposits of phosphate rock in the world
are within a mile of our town, and
the merchants of our town have al always

and when the dry mines start, large
increases in their respective businesses
will take place. It is to be sincerely
hoped that nothing wiH turn tip that
will delay the starting of the above
mentioned mines any longer than is
absolutely necessary and our people
await the work whistles of the mines

j Poonga-Poonga man -whose
shoulder had been scratched
by an arrow an hour before.

you take hold that boy. Maybe he will
want to sleep. Shake him up. If he
sleep he die."
The advance was more rapid now,
for Binu Charley placed the captive
bushman In front of him and made
him clear the runway of traps. Once,
at a sharp turn where a man's shoul shoulder

a screen of leaves, the bushman dis displayed

leaves aside and exposed the head of a

They turned aside from the runway
at a place indicated by Binu Charley
and came to an immense banyan tree

the innermost heart of the jungle a
denser jungle of its own. From out of
its black depths came the voice of a
man singing in a cracked eerie voice.

face and body. Somehow, engaged In
their healing ministrations, they no

The morning's action had been set settled

stay behind In his banyan refuge and
gather strength while the expedition
proceeded. On the far chance that
they might rescue even one solitary

With Tudor, Adamu Adam and Arahu

however, for by means of the poison poisoned

Caught by surprise fifteen feet In

to realize that it was a man. for he

not perturbed. He flung his poisoned

between the legs and, tripping upon

upon him, clutching him by his snow

and a dandy at that, his face black
ened with charcoal, his hair whitened
with wood ashes, with the freshly
severed tail of a wild pig thrust
through his perforated nose and two
more thrust through his ears. His
only other ornament was a necklace

a village drum. But the beat was slow.
There was no panic in the sound. The
runway now became a deeply worn
path, rising so steeply that several
times the party paused for breath.
"One man with a rifle could hold it
against a thousand," Sheldon whisper whispered

hold it with spears and arrows."
They came out on the village, sit situated

that Tudor would blunder his love

But there were certain traditious of
hospitality that prevented Sheldon
from breathing a hint that it was time
for his guest to take himself off. And
in similar fashion, feeling that it was

the temptation to warn Joan. Had be

was that he knew nothing at all
