filled with clean charcoal. Aronnd and

readily distinguishable from tbe

genuine anturaolte, on tbe authority
of several of the best mineralogists of
tbe coast, and sustains every test of

regularly stratified as though in

The discoverers, after secretly nsinu
every effort to locate coal in the nearby
mountains, at last confessed entire in

Minor Industrial notes t
All ef the collieries of the Cross Creok
Coal company worked full time last week.
The Tresckow waahery bas drawn tbe
dead line on non-nglish-speaking for

Tbe other day the Beaver Brook colliery
prepared and damped 667 mine care in
nine hours, breaking the colliery's record,
Kuyle Bros., who some time ago received a
contract to strip a large piece of coal land
at Eckiny, for the Cross Creek Coal corn
pan t, began operations Saturday. The
stripping will give employment to about
800 men.
A Pardee & Co.'s No. 8 colliery was last
Friday shut down for an indefinite period.
The foreman and superintendent were
transferred to other operations, and indi

that plant
The Beading Coal and Iron company is
about to erect a 9x88 pump on the grounds
of tbe Anthracite Powder company, which
will be used to force the water np to tbe
Keystone waahery, and the Potts' colliery
at LocuBt Dale.
The Schuylkill and Lehigh Valley Rail
road company has purchased a tract of
land containing 54, 000 square feet at West
Woods, within a mile ol Pottsville, and: it
iajUMed that a large machine and car shop
will be erected there.
All the Reading and Lehigh Valley col
lieries in tbe Schuylkill region closed
down on Wednesday evening for the
week. The shot down is complete and In
clude engineers and firemen. These col
lieries will not work more than four days
this month.
Tbe Lehigh and tfilkes-Barre Coal com

a large reservoir a mile west of Honey
Brook. It will be built be built large
enough to hold asupply of 8,000,000 gallons
of water, and will supply all tbe com

For tbe year, to Sept 1, tbe total of coal

The demand for anthracite coal is so
light that tbe Reading bas rented a num
ber of its coal barges to soft coal shippers.
This never baa happened before in tbe
neretoiore so-called busy season.
The Milneiville colliery of A. a Van
Wickle, is the only colliery in that region
that is working full time. When the con
necting link, whioh is now being eon
strncted is completed, the collieries at
Coleraine will also work steady.
General Agent Latta. of tbe Pennsvlva
nia railroad, spenks in glowing terms of
the increased buineM of the company,
"Business is picking up," says be. "Our
equipment is rnsbed as bard as it can go,
aud we have not sufficient box cars to sup
ply the demand. Everybody appears to
want to do something and the idle capital
of the country is rapidly finding its way
Into tne cnanceis or traue."
Dick & Mantz evidently intend to do ex

Frank Dwyer ranks among tbe best of
the league pitchers. In answer to tbe
question, "Who are probably the best
eight pitchers in the National league?" I
should say Rusie, Meekin, Nichols, Brelt

Mercur. Young is nowhere in bis last

almost entirely, and Stein cannot pitch
well when he takes his regular turn.

IndQstrleaa Indians.
The efforts of tbe United States govern
ment to render the Indian tribes self sup
porting and industrious have been most
successful in cases where it haa been pos
sible to take advantage of and develop some
kind of industry already known among
them in at least a rudimentary form.
With such a tribe as the Navajos, for in
stance, the government has had no trouble
since the wan with tbe tribe ceased, be
cause theee Indians are natural horse and
sheep raisers. Thay have been able to sup
port themselves by dealing in horses and
sheep. An attempt to make them farmers
In the sense known in the eastern states
would probably have not only failed, but
would have demoralized tbe Indians and
made them dependent upon tbe govern
ment. Other far western tribes of Indians have
subsisted largely In the past by digging

great extent of conntry. It is hoped that
these Indians, now that they no longer
have free range over a vast tract, may be
easily taught that they caii make a living
Dy planting other Kinds of roots on a more
limited area.
One of tbe difficulties with which the
government bas to contend in the process
of civilizing the great mass of tbe Indians
now classed as "wild" is the fact that they
occupy a conntry of dry plains, where very
little agriculture was practiced when the
Indians were in their primitive state, and
where it was comparatively easy and pleas
ant to derive a living from the herds of
buffalo and other game that were to be
found ranging the plains,
Such a people must almost be made over
again in order to be rendered agricultural.
But they bave a kindly feeling toward cat
tle which are a sort of natural successors
to the buffalo. They make excellent herd
ers and very good drivers of oxen.

Mauagtng Mothers.
It Is often said that romance is shocked
at the idea of a mother finding a husband
for her daughter, but delicacy is equally
shocked at a young girl hunting a husband
entirely by herself. Mother and home
throw a charm and a refinement aronnd
such efforts, and no good young man will
refuse to acknowledge the wisdom aud re
spectability of the English custom that "a
wife is to be courted on her father's hearth
stone." It is very easy to resent this sup
posed necessity of guarding girlish inno
cence, but it is a necessity in spite of all
protestations to the contrary. If, indeed,
the young are capable of self direction,
then mothers are a mistake, and all that
Holy Writ and wise men have said is false
and antiquated, and behind the youth of
this generation.
ISutstirelya mother who has modeall
the conditions of her daughter's life for
eighteen years may at least advise her
child on the muklng of her marriage aud
her home. For if she be a good mother
she will always consider that within due
limits a marriageable daughter should be
intrusted with her own destiny. Slio will
know that it is one of the secrets of wise
management to manage as little as possible,
and never to interfere iu things of small
moment. Mothers, then, ought to supple
ment by their own experience the Inex
perience and emotions of their daughters
and to warn them. Amelia K Burr in

There is a little circle of clever people in
town who have fallen into tho habit among
themselves of using grammar that would
make the schoolmistress's hair stand on

one of them say "1 done it" a'dozen times
or so in the course of tbe evening, he ap
proached the speaker. "Will you tell me."
he said, "why you say 'I done it' instead of

So the questioner went home and got out

Then be came back to the first man. "Will
you show me where you got Shakespeare's
authority ior the '1 Uono it?' " he said.
