In nsture, herself has had new exemplifica
tion' recently in the dtacovery of a deposit'
of la; perhaps centurlea old from which
a hlgbygrade, genuinely pure soap can be
madv. .Heretofore it haa always been
th likht that a soap could only be made
front animal tats, oils, etc. It thus adds
weight and credence to , the old aaylng

ponaceous deposit la especially interesting
in ,tht period of chemically prepared arti
cles.', , ,
Ths discovery, romantic though It sounds.
Is riot a myth, but a geological fact. The
supposition is that the lava Was deposited
by an extlnot geyser centuries ago. It Is
situated near .Orleans.
No doubt thousands of prospectors and
ranchmen In days passed camped near this
valuable lode, but none thought to Investi
gate It. ' It remained for some ranchers
from Colorado who camped there to look
Into the peculiar soil. It was purely an
accident, a deed of curiosity, that prompted
ia member of the party to take some of
the mud to clean a knlfa blade. To the
amasement ot all It took Off' the rust aa
If by magic. They rubbed it in their hands
aod their hands became clean. They tried
It In cleaning other articles and it worked
equally well. ,
Capitalists Are latereated.
When 'the party returned to Colorado
they told of their And. The saponaceous
qualities of the lava were not dreamed of
at that time, the finders believing it
merely had atrangs and unusual scouring
properties, just as nearly all mud pos
sesses some such properties. Denver capi

Malt Gives Beer
Its Food Value
Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer is healthful it builds up strength,
?romotes health, aids digestion and acts as a tonic. Perfect beer
s possible only with perfect malt, and perfect malt can only be
.made by .the eight-day process used by Pabst.
Mall is made from barley. Barley contains in its elementary
form the constituents that go to build up the human system, bone,
muscle, blood and brain. The Pabst process of making malt is
like the process of digestion. The barley is started growing as
if planted in the ground. The changes that take place in the
grain when it sprouts are similar to the action of the digestive
fluids on the grain if it were eaten. Pabst eight-day process of
making malt retains in predigested form in the beer all the nutri
tious, life-giving elements of the barley.
In many breweries the old shorter process is still used. This
' covers a period of not more than three or four days and the malt
- is of forotd. unnatural development, lacks in nutrition and is
in all ways inferior, much of the vital nutriment of the grain
being lost.

gist to Investigate. He reported that, the
deposit was undoubVdly left by a once
active geyser. The mstter was then sub
mitted to chemists snd their analysis of
the lava gave the first Inkling that It
possessed the properties of soap in a pure
and natural state.
The property, extending over a conslder-
Vable number of acres, was bought outright
from the original owner, and a company
was formed in Denver tv. manufacture a
commercial soap with this lava as a base.
The company was named the Oeyserlte
Soap eompsny, and the article Itself Oey
serlte soap. A building was erected at
Thlrty-flref and Blair streets, in Denver
snd the manufacture of ' the ' soap was
begun on a Urge scale.
Company Finds Demand.
Though all this hsppened a compara
tively short time ago, "the company Is re
ported to be In a very prosperous condi
tion, snd the soap Is being sold In sll parts
of the Vnlted States and the demsnd for
It Is Increasing steSdlly without the ex
penditure of a cent for sdvertislng. The
promoters, however, hope soon to compete
with the other well known soaps by launch
ing an extensive advertising campsign. It
seems that nowadays nothing can be made
to go hugely without extensive advertising.
Frank A. Joslln of Denver, the president
of the company, recently made a trip to the
property In the company of an expert and
he reports that the deposit Is well-nigh
limitless. An attractive feature from the
commercial standpoint is that this lava
costs the company practically nothing In
comparison to the material that all other
scap manufacturers are compelled to buy,
and that the geyaerlte can be ahtpped Into
Denver, ready to be converted into sosp, at
less than one-half cent a pound. This gives
the company a tremendous advantage over
other sosp manufacturers, as, owing to the
peculiar Inexpenalvencss of the article. It
csn be sold at a lower figure than other
sosps while giving a better profit. The
wholesaler and Jobber sells what he finds
the most profitable, so It Is certain that
Geyserit coap will have the friendship of
the men who aell It.
Pare Nataral Soap.
Chemists claim that Oeyaerlte sosp Is
the only purs and natural sosp that has
yet been marketed. It Is ssld to be un
comblned and to contain no free caustlo

Perfect beer, such as Pabst Blue Rib

is added the assessment this year will be
an Increase of some 81W.O0O over the returns
of last year.
D. B. Griffith, assessor of Jefferson

Thirty per cent of the horses sssessed wore
aged II to 6 years and were valued from

sessed were colts from 8 months to 8 years
old and were valued at from .830 to 830;
SO per cent of the mules assessed were
colts and were valued from 840 to 865; 50

Redaclng Lincoln Assessments.
County Assessor Miller of Lancaster
county Is becoming much agitated be
cause the County Board of Equalisation Is
making a material reduction in his assess
ment of the business men of Lincoln.
Nearly every business man who has gone
before the board with a protest has suc
ceeded in knocking off several thousand'
dollars. Mr. Miller yesterday went before
the board and said such action would re
sult in the State Board of Equalisation
taking a hand In Lancaster county affairs
and the consequence would be that Lan
caster county property would all get ma
terially boosted.
Inasmuch as the merchants of Lincoln
had already commenced to knock on ths
assessment of the business men of Omaha
long before the county board of Douglas
county got through Its work. Mr. Miller
says It is not meet that the county board
of Lancaster county should reduce his as
sessments. He assured the board he had
made a fair assessment of the property
In this county, and in every Instance, he
said, he had goodv reasons for increasing
the returns made by the property owners
and under the circumstances he would be
unable to go before ;the' atate board to
