CHILE'S MINERAL WEALTH.
Sreat Kesotirces of This South Amerl
The famous coal mines of I.ota and
Corout'l have an annual yield of l.'k)),
iXJO tons and employ some ft.f'OO labor
ers, according to the Knginc; ring Mag
azine. Tills not only supplies Chile's
needs, but also coals nearly all Ihe Eu
ropean steamers touching the borders.
The cofil is what is termed "soft," but
it Is ol good quality. The country Im
ports some hard coal. The most itn
portiint mineral industry is, of course,
the nitrate of soda. Chile at present
has over H nitrate works. The erudo
material (called caliche) Is found un
der a conglomerate, in beds varying
from a few inches to twelve feet in
thickness. The process of extraction
Is one of leaching and refining by crys
tallization. About ,4K,000 metric
tons of 2,2XM pounds each are annual
ly reduced, estimated to be worth S54,
WK),X)0 in Europe. About four-fifths
Df all the nitrate exported goes to Eng
land and the continent, Creat Britain
alone,, taking one-third and CJermnny
a little less. A large a mount f Irt
ish capita Is invested in Ihe. nitrate
Holds, sixteen of the largest companies
alone representing n capitalization of
more than $40,000,000. The Chilean
government exacts a duty of $11.52 a
ton on all nitrate exported.
In metal mining copper comes first,
both as to present output and further
opportunity. The country needs mod
ern metallurgical processes nnd knowl
edge of successful methods of handling
low-grade ores. The present produc
tion is about 30,000 tons of copper an
nually. Manganese Is also an Impor
tant Industry. Silver, once very high
ly profitable, has declined; 74,009 kilo
grams of silver were exported in 1900.
Promising gold deposits exist, especial
ly in Southern Chile; $,'iO,(XX) iu gold,

Korea tho Pathway of Nations.
Nothing encourages the study of ge
ography like war. It was in 1871 that
Americans began to look up Korea on
the map, for at that time we were at
war with her;, but there was only one
battle, nnd In that battle only one
hian was killed on our side. So the
geographies were soon put back on
Iho shelf. In 1894 Koreu again came
to the front, but the Chinese fled so
precipitately before the Japanese that
before the geographies were fairly
open the tide of war swept serosa the
Valu and left Korea again the "Land
of Morning Calm." And now again In
Ibis year of grace she is to be made,
though much against ber will, the
chessboard for another game. Id
1228 she was swept from north to
touth hy tbe Mongols In their effort to
(et at the Japanese. In 1502 sbe was
iwept from south to north by th
Japanese. She has been verily tha
pathway of nations, trodden of ever
