k layers are thick the oreis of far better grade—the black colour no doubt indicates the presenceof argentite. The ore has regularly a excellent resemblance to thefluidal structure! of the felsite-country even to the really colour,and the writer regards it as powerful proof of replacement ofcountry-rock by quartz and argentite. It is merely another formof silicification, possibly of far more recent date than that of the restof the filling. Fig. 18 (Plate XV.) is a single instance of its occurrencein the vein. Fig. 19 (Plate XV.) shows an additional occurrence of caracol ore,and its relation to the felsite nation-rock showing flow-structure. * In this district, the miners term china-clay (kaolin) tofo or chile, reserving theterm caliche or cantara for ordinary white decomposed clay. t Prof. Grenville A.

It isthe most flourishing of the Straits settlements and a placeof considerable commercial importance. Its most distinguishing function is, even so, a steamtramway which runs from the quay through the principalstreets, terminating in two populous villages. The induce-ments to develop the line had been the considerable freight andpassenger targeted traffic, the latter of which is establishing as thenatives get utilised to the devil machine.
