Spirit lovers, however, became very fond of it, and it was soon adopted as a beverage, and made an article of general trade, and received the name of the plant used to give it flavor. In Holland, the original “Geneva” was made by grinding the juniper berries with the malt, before fermentation, and subsequently fermenting the whole together, by which the flavor becomes perfectly disseminated from the beginning, and the spirit thus made is superior in flavor to any other.

Suddenly facing them as I reached the juniper, and instinctively remembering the direction to fire low which you gave me, y'ou know, Elliot, I shot off each barrel quick as lightning, then rushed on again. That I had killed some, at all events, was evident by the growling and fighting of the others over the dead ones. I knew that the dogs nowadays were never known to descend to the valleys - until driven by actual starvation, and, also, that when hungry they did not scruple to eat the dead of their

The owners of the Juniper are expecting to resume operations in connection with the Mariposa Improvement Company, while the Morning Star has returned to the possession of its former owner, Mr. Grosser. Coming to the mines on Sherloclc’s no important change during the past year is noticeable. Mr. John S. Diltz, owner of the Diltz mine, has done considerable work upon the mine, in getting out large quantities of ore, and sinking a shaft on the main vein near its northern extremity. For want of proper facilities and lack of water, no crushing or washing has been done, but great quantities of ore, estimated by Mr. Diltz to contain at least $100,000, have

    Highlight: the US Mint occupied its once notable home at Chestnut and Juniper streets. Eckfeldt selected that site. His city home was at Vine and Juniper, but it was he who bought the now famed Eckfeldt farm in Delaware County with it still standing farmhouse. Adam's son, Jacob, got his place in the U.S. Mint when Jackson was President back in 1832 and was still there until President Grant occupied the White House in 1872. For seven years he and his still living son, Jacob, were both in the Mint. This family record has no parallel in the long span of years during which it served in the production of American coins." The Bala Golf Club is near City Line Road and the Pennsylvania Rail line. I have been unable to confirm this was the Cloud/Eckfeldt farm. St. Joseph_s University is nearby but I have been

    CONFERENCE REPORT: SAINT-GAUDENS: THE RENAISSANCE OF AMERICAN COINAGE

    Highlight: Most of the participants convened late Sunday afternoon at the nearby Juniper Hill Inn, where we were treated to a tour of the house, followed by a modest buffet dinner. After that, a number of us settled into the Presidential Suite for a post-dinner drink and conversation. For me, it was a nice way to wind down after 11 long days working in Boston! The next morning, the museum's curator, Dr. Henry J. Duffy, treated us to a long tour of the site's buildings, grounds and sculpture. (Of special numismatic interest among the items displayed were the original plasters for a 1907 Extra High Relief $20 with Arabic Date, and another of St Gaudens' famous Indian Head $20, the pattern formerly known as J-1776.)

    NEW ENGLAND SHILLING "COULD BE" REAL

    03/24/2013

    Highlight: -Editor A man who brought an old coin to an appraisal fair at Juniper Village last month walked away with an appraisal of $400,000, if the coin can be authenticated. The appraisal fair was held on Feb. 28 at Juniper Village at Chatham Assisted Living. It was one of the facility's frequent free community outreach programs, said Executive Director Joann Malanga. The appraiser was Doug Reeder, an expert art and antique dealer from Warren Township. _The coin, called the New England Shilling, was actually the first coin struck in North America? in 1652, in the General Court of Massachusetts, Reeder said. There were three denominations struck, three pence, six pence and one shilling coins. _If it were real...it would be worth around $400,000.? Reeder said he sent the coin's owner to Peter Doelge

    History of the First United States Mint: Its People and Its Operations

    /1924

    Highlight: When the location of the second Mint was under discussion he recommended the location at Juniper and Chestnut, which was accepted. He then lived at Juniper and Vine streets. From the time of his resignation until his death, February 5, 1852, he kept up his attachment for the Mint, and to him, more than to any other man, is due the credit for ideas and achievements that are now and always will be of interest to numismatists, not the least of which is

    1/1/1882

    Highlight: The western and smaller end is appropriately embellished by the |)et of the district — the Juniper — with its rich fis- sures of auriferous deposits, reaching sometimes as high as $20 to the pound of siliceous gravel. “ The hill i)roxier is an uidieaval of argillaceous slates and argilla- ceous x)ori)hyry. These clays are in a comi)lete brecciated condition of varying hardness, from the extremely hard, compacted blue slate to the soft, i)lastic clay. Alum shale, containing i)yrites, is also met with, and a friable quality of agalmatolite — a vast variety of colors and shades — lending a peculiar beauty to the conglomerates. “The porphyritic is much more finely brecciated. These two classes of rock are usually found as opposing walls in the trend of the best defined fissures, which have a

    Annual Report of the Director of the Mint Upon the Production of Precious Metals

    1/1/1883

    Highlight: The Juniper and Morning Star mines, situated on the ridge between Hornitos and Bear Valley, have suspended operations within the past year. The owners of the Juniper are expecting to resume operations in connection with the Mariposa Improvement Company, while the Morning Star has returned to the possession of its former owner, Mr. Grosser. Coming to the mines on Sherloclc’s no important change during the past year is noticeable. Mr. John S. Diltz, owner of the Diltz mine, has done considerable work upon the mine, in getting out large quantities of ore, and sinking a shaft on the main vein near its northern extremity. For want of proper facilities and lack of water, no crushing or washing has been done, but great quantities of ore, estimated by Mr. Diltz to contain at least $100,000, have

Construction began on the new structure in 1829, starting with a ceremony planting the cornerstone in the ground on July 4 of that year. Beginning with a “liberal provision ... made for its accomplishment” from the Congress, the new building was conceived as a “temple of numisma,” in the words of Joel Orosz and Leonard Augsburger in The Secret History of the First US Mint. Orosz discovered the first printed description of the new structure in the pages of a somewhat obscure Philadelphia periodical, variously called The Casket and Atkinson’s Casket, whose prime claim to fame is its history as a forerunner to a magazine that Edgar Allan Poe edited.

I commenced to use it about eight mouths ago, at which time I was confined to my room. From the first bottle I was astonished and gratified at the beneficial effect ; and after using it three weeks was able to walk out. I felt much like writing you a full statement of my case at the time, but thought my improvement might only be temporary, and therefore concluded to defer, and see if it would effect a perfect cure, knowing that then it would be of greater value to you, and more satisfactory to me. I am now able to report that a care is effected after using the remedy for five mouths
