Orno, of Toledo, claims to have made avaluable discovery along the line oí the Ann Arbor road near Milán. Mr. Orno says he has found great quantities of pure raw sienna, trom which the paint of that name is made, and thinks the supply inexhaustible. The specimens he has shovvn are much finer and purer thai that imported trom Italy, and contaii no sand whatever. 'l'he discover} was made alter a fiïe in a field tha had burned the sod off and turnee the clay underneath a deep red which attracted notice and his atten tion to it. Mr. Orno has obtained leaste of all the land in the vicinity, and intends working it for all there is in it. The sienna is only about a toot and a half below the sod, and, as it is directly on the line of the railroad, transportaron is easy. He has had offers hom paint dealers in the east to take all he can handle of it, and, as the supply is so laige and easy ol access, it is probable that the find may prove a mine. - Detroit Evening News
