THE BCHAKTON TRIBTJITE TIIUIISDAT MORlONa; AUGUST 30, 1594;
For tba pant few day a report has
been urrent in railroad oirolti tbat x
Poitmaater General John Wanamaker
had been offered the preildeney of the
Reading road. On Saturday evening
last a reporter of the Philadelphia.
Prua interviewed him regarding the
report. He waa candid in saying that
when abroad recently he waa ap
proaohed by men largely interested in
needing aecaritiea, who urjrsd nitn to
brooms the eompany'a president, Sines
nil return Come, be added, others sum
larly interoated, resident in this coun
try, have discutswd the mutter with
him, also wanting him to direst the
management of the company a affairs
He said tbat he hud not signified his
willingness to do ex nor oonld he say
tbat he had seriously considered den
ulte uronosltion of that kind. "Read
lag," taid Mr. Wanamaker, "should be
reorganized. Delay in doing so bus
sorely burdened thousands of Fbiladei
pbians owning stock, wbo have suffered
for vears bv not receiving dividends.
Reading is a great property, and if
properly nnderstood should be earning
dividends. What is needed is manage
ment, and not only financiering. I
have been surprised at tbe advance in
the price of Reading stock, despite the
faot that the adoption of a plan of re
organization would mean an assess
ment on suoh stock.
An important railway enterprise,
with St. Louis and Chicago capital
back of it, has coma to light at West
Superior, Wis. A newly orgauizai
company has for several weeks bud a
surveyor at work running a line from
Superior to Stillwater, Minn., on the
St. Croiz line. It is intended entirely
for iron and coal. It is to take iron
ore at the docks there and transport it
to barges at Stillwater, whieh will run
down the Mississippi to St, Louis, re
turning with coal. The St. Liuis iron
mongers have concluded that tbey
must draw on the Meaaha and Vermil
lion ranges for ore. A number of
wealthy lumbermen are also said to be
interested in the project.
Tbe drought lias attained alarming
proportions at Silver Brook. Two of
J. W. Crellin's steam shovels shut
down at that place Tuesday and unless
the water from tbe abandoned strip
ping at No. 1 can be used tbe shovels
will remain idle, says the Hazleton
Standard, until a bounteous rain
streams its cooling potions ovr that
district. Contractor Crelliu has been
obtaining bis water from the Old Sil
ver Brook creek for tbe p ist two weeks
and the coal company has now taken
possession of that supply for their No.
Tbe new breaker whieh haa been
under course of ereetion at Park
Place for some months past is now in

i uu uperuuuu. ji. prominent leaiure
of tbe modern structure, according to
the Huzleton Standard, is the introduc
tion of terra cotta chutes instead of
the ordinary cast iron chutes tbat have
been used universally throughout the
anthracite region for years. Ic is
claimed for tha new kind of chutes
that tbey facilitate tbe preparation of
coal, being muoh smoother, thus al
lowing the dirt and wash and email
Bizfg of coal to pass through them
blandly. , , i
Says the Philadelphia Bulletin. "The
official who finda the anthracite market
stocked from end to end would have
found it so at this period in almost any
year for a decade. He sums up the
casein the admission that ighty per
csnt. of the output goes into domostio
channels, and this admission oarrles
with it the obvious conclusion that a
minimum quantity of coal only is used
when the heat of tbe year is most in
tense. Tbore has certainly been no rea
son why any resident of this region
should have bad more than one fire go
ins sine June ushered in the heat of
summer, and the conditions which pre
vailed here also prevailed, in greater
or less degree, in other localities. Tbe
cost of mining being less in summer
than winter, the operators nre accus
tomed to foroing their ontput some in
response to business demands. If tnere
be any real decrease in tbe consump
tion for the aetual summer ssason, at
least a portion of it must be ascribed
to the increasing number of gas and
oil stoves now in daily use."
The coal tonnage of the Huntingdon
and Broad Top railroad continues to
sbow a decided improvement compared
with last year; for the weak ended
Aug. 25 it aggregated 54,650 tons, an
inoreHKe over the same week last year
of l 1,039 tons. Shipments for tbe year
fltrtrregate 1.224,163, a decrease of 186,
7b2tom compared with tbe same period
in 1393. This decrease was marie be
fore the great strike of the soft-Coal
miners, and since its resumption there
has btXan a large and steady increase in
tonnage, no less tbat 43 per cent, of
the earlirr loss having been recovered
within the past six weeks.
Etstbonnd shipments from Chicago
last weak aggregated 47,161 tons,
against 4..558 tons tbe preceding week
and 43,992 tons the corresponding week
last year. It will thns be seen tbat
there is an improvement, not only over
last year, but over tbe second week of
tb i month; and this improvement, tbe
P "adelphlaStockholder thinks, should
not only continue, but grow heavier
from this time forward. Tbe move
ment of general merchandise is ex
petted to tie very free as soon as goods
now in bond are released. .This, how
ever, is a matter of only aecondary
consideration. The increased traffic
will come from the general im
provement whieh the country .is
now experiencing, and which prom
ises to sontinue for an indefinite
period, for all stocks are exceedingly
low and must be replenished. The
buying power with tbe public gener
erally is also increasing, and labor
disturbances seem to be rapidly draw
ing to an end, tbe strike of cotton
operators at New Bedford and Fall
River being the most serious now, al
though there are indications tbat it,
too, will be short-live. Tbe ontlook
from a railroad point of view is, there
fore, very encouraging.
Minor Industrial Notes:
Now that railways are increasing their
shop forces hundreds of mechanics and
machinists are applying for jobs.
Freight traffic on the Nickel-plate road
is said now to be tbe heaviest it has been
at any time in the last three years.
The Lehigh and Wilkes-Barre Coal
company have a neat reservoir completed

President Cleveland has approved the
act to authorize the purchasers of the
property of tbe Choctaw Coal and Rail
way company to organize a corporation
and to confer npon it all the powers, priv
ileges and franchises vested in that com
pany. The card sharks who gave tha Michigan
Central so much tronble are now working
passenger trains ot tbe Lake Shore road,
and the company is making an effort to
drive the swindlers from its trains.
Lat week the Pennsylvania company

Tbe Pennsylvania lines are again doing
a heavy business handling at Indianapolis
last week 377 more loaded cars than in the
week ending Aur. 18, and C33 more than
in tha corresponding week of 18(13. The
largest gain waa with the Indianapolis and
The Big Four lines proper last week
bandied 1.H7 more loaded cars than in tbe
week ended Aug. Id, and 1,705 more loaded

A narrow-gunge locomotive, bought at
Pitt9burg, Pa., for 13,575, was delivered at
Samaca, Colombia, for $1,895, with $10,904

The loaded car movement of the Lake
Erie and Western road last week was the
lurgest of any week since the present man
agement took hold of the property. Tnere
were forwarded from Indianapolis 655
loaded cars and 405 brought in, making a
total of l,ro. In any previous week 703
was the highest number the road has
reached at this point. The mcrease is 100

New York, Aug. 29. There was a fair
degree of activity at the Stock Jexcbange
touay, oat tne increase ot Dueiness was at
the expense of values. The temper of

Cervantes was taken prisoner in 1575
by Barbary corsairs, and fell into tbe
bands of the renegade Albanian. Dell
Mami. Cervantes and his companions
escaped irom Dell Manl, but could not
just then escape from the country. A
urotner ot Cervantes was ransomed in 1577.
and promised the captives to send a frigate
from Valencia or the Bulearic isles which
should touch nt a point of the shore agreed
upon and rescue them by force or strata
The place where they took refuge was
near the seashore. A gardener named
Juan, under the direction of Cervantes,
secretly cut out a cave, in which the fifteen
Christian prisoners hid themselves. Juan
watched the neighborhood and allowed no
one to approach the cavery, and another
slave brought food to the cuptlves, who
dared leave their hiding place only at night,
After eight days, during which Cervantes
watched the sea, he saw the frigate which
had come to rescue them. That evening
tbe frigate approached the land, but fisher
men gave the alarm, and so many people
assembled that the captain was obliged to
go to scaaguin. He made a second attempt
a little later, but unfortunately was cap
tured. The day aftef the frigate was taken the
captives were betrayed. Cervanteea was
setit to the convicts' prison, and a little
lutcr, just as he was about to be sent to
Constantinople, where the possibility of
rescue would be lost forever, he was ran

Giving It Age.
Oldboy went down to Rockawny Bench
on a hot day to escape the heat of the city.
Ho enjoyed himself hugely there, watch
lug the bathers and the children on the
sands, and finally worked up sufficient
energy to take a plunge himself. The bath
gave him u first class appetite, and lie
looked around for a place where he could
appease it. A pavilion dining ball on the
beach struck his fancy. All over this place
were posted placards announcing that it
was the only place on the beach where an
"Old Fashioned Clmu Fioost on Birch
Bark" could be obtained.
Now, Oldboy is very fond of a clam roast.
especially an old fashioned clnm roast, so
be took a seat at a table and ordered the
menial who approached him to bring him
one. As Oldboy sat there with the sea
breeze fanning his bald head, he dreamed
about the delights of the clam roast to
come. It did not come, though. Oldboy
is a patient man, but after sitting there for
about fifteen minutes lie called the waiter
over and asked him, somewhat harshly:
"What is the matter with that clam
roastf Have you sent out to dig the
"Oh, no, air," answered the waiter, with
a polite bow, "but you ordered au old fash
ioned roast, you know."
"So I did, so I did," snapped Oldboy;
"but what of tbat."
"Why, we has to wait for it to get old
fushioned, you know," answered the wait
Oldboy had no more to say, and tbe
waiter, with a merry twinklo in his eye,
soon brought the roast and placed it be
fore him. New York Times.
An Art Editor's Duties.
The art editor of n newspaper not a thou
sand miles away tells mo that once, when a
certain painter exhibited bis work, he was
obliged, through lack of space and time, to
make a hurried visit to the collection and
write a notice of it, hardly more than
twenty lines in length. One day a porten
tous shadow spread itself across his desk
as he sat at work, and on looking up lie
saw that it was. cast by the artist whose
pictures he had so briefly and not enthusi
astically reviewed. The artist said:
"I came to see if that was all the notice
I was going to get."
"Well, yes; it probably is."
"Can't you do more than that?"
"Most of you people think that I have
nothing to do but write about art. As a
matter of fact, lftS nearly all newspaper
men, that is only a part of my work. I
have to write editorials and get up matter
for our supplement, and go to concerts and
help review books"

The Morning liath.
Cold water is a narcotic, as alcohol Is. It
deadens tiie sensibilities of the skin, and
hence prevents the sensation of cold. It
relieves the disposition to chilliness be
cause of this deadened sensibility, and as
colds and catarrhs are due to byper-seusl-tiveness
of the skin, we readily see that the
cold bath prevents the cold by reducing the
But tho cold morning bath does some
thing more. It arouses nervous activity
by calling upon the vital system for in
creased animal heat. The contraction of
the vessels due to the cold is followed by a
relaxation of them, explained by the prin
ciple of reaction, and so through the cold
bath both action and reaction are estab
lished, which frequently give delusive ex
citements to the victim. ,
The tepid or warm morning bath is a
great improvement over the cold water
bath, but even these nre not to be com
mended. Whoever would enjoy the best
of health should take bis bath two, three
or four times a week and retire to bed for
a rest, thereby allowing nature to secure
the best equilibrium of her forces and pro
mote tho best conditions of health. Dr.

NEW SHAPES IN STRAW HATS.
Those With the Corners Turned llaek Like

Among tho many shapes in which struw

a lengthwise croiwo ulong tho top similar
to those or soft felt lints are also seen and
luv appropriate enough to the coarse braid

favorite device wilb small bonnets Is to
cut straight into tho flaring brim in front,
turning tho two corners back like wings.
Bonnet shapes are displayed mado of gul

with bended and Kpauglcd net. Theso
shapes require very ilttlo trimming, but
most of tho other lieud cojj-rlngs seen nro

was of fluo black straw and was loaded

Wlnit a Modern Gun Can Do.
Unless one is actually brought into busi
ness relations with the great science of
modern warfare, it is difficult to conceive
of the terrible power of the latest and larg
est guns. These engines of destruction,
weighing 110 tons, hurl a projectile of solid
steel 10 inches in diameter aud nearly 4
feet long at a velocity of 2,079 feet a second.
When tested, one of t hese guns sent a shot
through 20 iuches of steel armor, 8 inches
of iron, 20 feet of oak, 5 feet of granite, 11
feet of concrete and 3 feet of buck.
Comparatively a locomotive weighing
200,000 pounds would have to spin along
the tracks at the rate of l!i." miles an hour
to strike n liluw equal to that projectile.
