Trinidad Asphalt. Viewed for the Aspect of Production

THE discovery and use of asphalt dates from the remotest ages. D'Eyrinis, who discovered the Val de Travers mine, and published a work on the subject in 1721, held that Noah's Ark was coated, and the Tower of Babel cemented, with it. He based his assertion on the proximity of the deposit at Siddim. L.A. Simmons
