The article, however, being of volcanic origin, is abundantly found wherever there are, or have been, volcanoes.
A discovery has recently been made of a large and very rich deposit of this valuable mineral on the island of Saba, one of the Dutch West Indies.
A New York company has found the average yield of this deposit to be over 60 per cent of sulphur, of excellent quality, and in quantities practically inexhaustible.
The island is within a hundred miles of the port of St. Thomas.
It is also rumored that a discovery of sulphur has been made on Rabbit-Hole Mountain on the line of the Central Pacific Railway in Humboldt County, Nevada, at a place called Inferno.
The mountain is said to be a mass of sulphur, yielding from 92 to 96 per cent of the pure article, and is being shipped to Carson and San Francisco at the rate of 10 to 20 tons a week.
California procures some sulphur from Japan as well as from Sicily; but this Nevada product is said to excel either.
