Poland's Salt Mine*.
The salt mines of Wielieaka, near
Cracow, Poland, were mentioned in
1044, and have been worked since 1240.
| The first map of tbe mines was made in
1638 by Martin German, a Swedish
mine surveyor. Tbe eight shafts now in
existence are from 207 to 285 feet deep,
and the length of the levels now open
is 345,000 feet, with 115,500 feet of
underground tram lines. Between 17<2
aud 1893 about 3,000,000 cubic yards
have been excavated of salt. Machine
drills are now used, and compressed
powder is employed in blasting. About
l, 187 pounds of powder are used per
ton of salt prodneed. Tbe present levels
are lii feet, high by 6% feet wide.
The old man sighed as he took the
go; len haired, laughing little boy upon
his knee, and, stroking bis shimuß
tresses, said, “Ah, how mush I sbould
like to foal like a child again 1”
Little Johnny ceased his laughter,
