000; improvements at Broad
Htreet and Lehigh avenne,
$18,423 !)2, one twelfth of onrrent years
tixed charges (stiranteri)$705,000.ma!c
iug a total of $878 295 45 and learinc
deficit for' the month of $79,895 07.
For the corresponding montn of 1893
the surplus was $30,001.2-1 The de
ficit to date for tbe current fiscal vear
is $1.2116,545.119, an increase of $242,.
964.01 orer tbe corresponding period of
Twelve years ago JG. R. Brown, gen
eral superintendent of the Fall Brook
Railway company, introduced Ion that
road what is known as "discipline with
punishment system," with the best re
Hults. Recently F. G. Darlington, su
perintendent of the Indianapolis divi
sion of tbe Pennsylvania lines, has in
troduced this plan, says the Journal,
intending, he says, to give it a good
test, and every employe who has been
disciplined this month has been given
the benefit of this plan. In eaeh case
evidence Is taken and the sentenoe of
suspension, thirty or sixty days, as the
case may be, according to. the rules
of the company, put on record; "the
sentenoe is then suspended, and the
full report of the examination is placed
on record, as each offense may come
up, until such a time is reached that
the record is so bad that the company
is justified in dismissing tbe employe.
As far as explained to the men and
acted on by Superintendent Darlington,
the employes express satisfaction. For
Instance, should a switchman misplace
a switch and an accident occur, the
record is made out, and if such a thing
occurs again dismissal is likuly to fol
low, and certainly on tbe third offense.
Discipline without punishment is not
praeticed where an employs uses in
toxicating liquors or gambles; in such
cases dismissal is tbe punishment,.
As anticipated, the coal i1a agents
nt their meeting in New York, ad
vanced the eastern price of conl to the
May circular, which was $3 50 for
broken and egg, and $3 75 for stove and
chestnut. Western prices were ad
vanced to $4 per ton for grate, and
54.15 for other sizes to Bnffalo. The
prices to Chicago were advanced to
$4 75 for grate and $5 per net ton for
ji ii ra
other siz-j. These prices take effect
immediately. (Tbe outpot for October
was fixed at 8,01)0,000 tons, against 2,
500.000 tons lost month.

New York, Sept. 27. Generally speak
ing the stock market displayed a great
deal of firmness today The advances were
by no means lurge, but the fact that there
was any .improvement at all excited no
little apprebeusion in the bear ranks iu
view of tbe big drop in Sugar aud the
weakness of some of the other industrials
and specialties. Sugar was forced for sale
throughout the session aud declined from
'M to Distillers were weak, but on
the other band Reading aud all of the
grangers developed positive strength and
advanced X to 1 per cent. Despite the
weakness in Sugar these stocks re-acted
only fractionally at the close. Total sales
235,000, of which 87,000 were Sugar.

Devil's Punch BonvL Why a imnch

his satanic majesty, or why there should
be a so cullud pulpit in it tradition h;is
forgotten to koep a record. All that one
knows is that it is called tho Devil's
A drive of a little over three miles
over hard roudf, a turn into the dense
primeval forest, and suddenly on top of
a grand elevation, surrounded by a
magnificent hummock timber, the Punch
Bowl is ut your feet.
There are several ways to reach tho
bottom of tho bowL The most expedi
tious is to let loose and roll down, but
that is rather undignified. Once down
its depths, its size is forcibly impressed
on the mind, for whr.t you took to bo sap
lings and stones develop into magnolia
und walioo trees measuring 5 aud 6 l'eet
in circumference, and 'tho stones that
looked so lmndy from tfio briuk becomo
bowlders of very respectable size. It is
hard to estimate the are; of the bowl,
but between one and two acres will
probably approximate its sizo at tho top,
while the bottom is about one-fourth of
this size and is irom 00 to 70 feet be
low, the topmost boughs of tho trues
barely reaching tho level of tho sur
rounding ground. Its stoop sides ura
draped with beautiful ferns, mosses nud
vines and dotted all over with violets,
modestly hiding away with the delicate
maidenhair fern nudor tho protecting
leaves of the palmettos and vines.
Looking up tho sides of the steep slopo
the picture left on tho mind is ono of
surpassing beauty, aud it is hard for the
stranger to realize that tho scene is in
