THE SCBANTON ; TKIBUNE-TUESDAY MORNING, OCTOBEE 2, 1894.
Wbat it known in Shamokia as the
'North of the Mountain" district of
the Reading Coal and. Iron company's
coal fields bas been diridxd into dis
trict!, the first diTialon embracing all
thecollieriea from Trerorton to Gilbert
on, and the second division embracing
all tbe collieries from Mahanoy City to
Gilbertoo, and including tbe Shenan
doah district collieries. Heretofore all
these collieries hare been embraced in
one district, Montroe T. Echrtfllir
bavins charge ot tbe entire fiii.
Under tbe new order Mr. Sohnfflr
will continue as division superintend
ent ot tbe district, having charge of
the collieries from Trevorton to Gil
berton. Mr. Scbrtflhr'a headquarters
will continue to be at Ashland. Tbe
second division will be in charge of
John Skeath, of Mabony city,
former distriot superintendent of
that distriot. His headquarters
may be at Shenandoah. David W.
Price, wbo for the past aix years bas
been tbe superintendent of tbe Ashland
district, has been appointed assistant
to division : Superintendent. Thomas
Doyle, of tbe Pottsville district collier
ies, embracing the collieries from Tre-
raont to Silver Creek. Mr. Price's
lieadanarters will be at Pottsville. Mr.
Price will be succeeded as superintend
ent of the Asland district by Thomas
Campbell, at present inside foreman at
Indian nidge colliery, at btieuauaoati,
wbo will have his headquarters at Ann

Wbat is known aa the Otto-Hoffman
coke-nialsing process is soon to be in
troduced in this country with' impor
tant results. The process is noted for
producing a biah grade of coke from
inferior coals, and ulco by saving tbe
gases and by-products of tbe combus
tion of the coal. Tbe name of tbe com
pany represented by tbe above-named
uentleman ia tbe Otto Coke and Chemi
cal company, with headquarters at
Cleveland, tbe principal parties inter
ested being tbe Messrs. Mather, of
Cleveland, and tbe Cambria Iron com
pany, ox Johnstown. Today practi
cally the entire production of coke in
tbe United States for metallurgical
purposes iff made in beehive ovens,
which allows all the 'waste gases and
other produots of the combnstion of
tbe coal to escape into the air. Tbe
centre of the coke making Industry is
in tbe Connellsvllle region, and tbe fuel
. Droduced here is tbe standard blast fur
naee fuel. The Pocahontas Flat Top
district is also a producer of higbgrad
' metallurgical coke. Xbe close prosi
mity ot the Connellsvllle region to the
great centers ol iron and steel manu
facture, tbe low priee- of mining tbe
coal, and the steady demand for coke,
have made tbe producers somewhat
conservative in investigating any new
processes proposed to supersedo the
present satisfactory, altbongh waste
Jul, beehive method. To a considerable
extent tbe position of the Connellsvllle
region in the matter .or ovens has in
fluenced tbe other producing districts
tbronghout tbe country. According to
tbe claims made for the Otto-Hoffman
process all this may be changed, and
inferior coal can be made to produce
bigh grade of coke, while at the same
time giving certain valuable chemical
substances wbioh contribute in a large
measure to tbe expense of operation.

TROUT AND FLIES
SUPERSTITIONS THAT ANGLERS IN
An Angler Discourses en the Taboos ef
the Sacred Fish There seems to Be No
Reason Why Other Bait Than Files May
Not Be Used in Hooking Trout
Aneline on the Itchen, the Test and all
other fashionable trout streams is governed
by a rigid law that the fly is the only per
missible lure. No sportsman questions the
tradition, which indeed is so thoroughly
established that the very poacher in tbe
dead of night wbuld blush at the thought
of using; anytbi-g grosser than an alder.
dearly all eVtiuettes, howsoever dlthcuit
it may be to verceive what originally gave
rise to therryare rational at bottom; but
this one seems an exception. There is no
obvious reason why worm or gentles or the
Alexandra fly or even minnow should be
tabooed. At least there is none that we
Perhaps If one were venturesome enough
to ask a Hampshire fisherman in what
respect a minnow is offensive, we should
be told that it falls into the water with a
shocking splash. Tbe splash is undeniable;
but surely it is an inadequate explanation,
of the taboo. ' A minnow is not the only
thing that splashes. We have seen the
lightest dry fly splash abominably, to the
obvious terror of the trout; and the Hamp
shire fisherman himself splashes, for he in
variably wades, and in that act disturbs
the water in half an hour more than all
the minnows in the tackle shops could pos
sibly do in a day.
It is equally impossible to think that the
objectionable characteristic of the minnow
is that it is too killing. The minnow is not
killing at all. He who could do any good
with a minnow in tbe pellucid waters of a
chalk stream would be an artist of incom
parable skill. Tbe trout usually flee an
angler's minnow in a perturbation com
pared with which the author of "Salome's"
displeasure with the lord chamberlain is
equanimity. Can it be, then, that in ta
booing the minnow onr fishermen are
making a virtue of a necessity, and not
countenancing it merely because it is use
less? W e might mcline to this conjecture,
if it were not that the best mauaged dry
fly is usually useless too. Why are our
modern fishermen so fastidious as to the
menus by which they achieve failure?
Humiliation on tle gentle makes the
subject darker than ever. Indeed gentles,
which may be defined as maggots, wasp
grubs, caddis or any other white creeping
things, are treated according to a code ol
angling morals which isquite inexplicably
arbitrary. You must not use a gentle
when it is a "stone bait;" but you do a
highly meritorious action when, ten min
utes afterward, he has taken to himself
the wings of the greendroke and you seize
blin to adorn a tail. You must not use a
maggot from the butchers; but you are at
liberty to pnt a bit of white leather on a
fly hook, and that oddly enough is some
times a lure more deadly than tbe gentle,
of which it is intended to be an imitation.
You must not use an Alexandra, but no
body will hinder you from working with
a 2-iiich Jock Scott if you are fool enough
to prefer that means of failure.
There is, however, a reason for this par
ticular taboo. It is founded upon a wis
dom akin to that of Theophile Gautior's
cat, which, bearing a parrot speak, re
marked reflectively: "This is not a bird.
This is a gentleman. Listen' to bis conver
sation!" In tbe estimate of the conscien
tious fisherman, tbe Alexandra fly is not a
fly. It is a minnow. Its dressing of feath
ers looks like wings; but there are three
books underneath, and when the thing is
in the water it has the appearance ot
Thus far the philosophy of the taboo is
unimpeachable; but we can go no further.
The Alexandra's resemblance to a minnow
is no ckuicr than that ot a brown hackle to
a spider, which is so little close that we
have the audacity to doubt whether the
trout feels himself to be rising at a spider
when we feel that it is a spider we are of
fering bim. Wbat cause indeed have we
to believe that fish take onr lares in the
spirit in which they are given? Is it not
pretty well ascertained that there is no fly,
no shrimp, no prawn which bas any like
ness to the blue devils, the thunder-and-
lightnings and other engines on which
sulmon willingly impale themselves? What
can a trout be thinking of when it snaps at
a parr tail? Let us hope that anglers will
not allow this so called Nineteenth century
to pass away with the premises of their
science unrevised. It is high time they
were considering the possibility that fish
take some lures merely for the fun ot the
thing, or by way of resenting an insult,
and not because tbe lures seem something
good to eat.
Having gone so far In heresy, we may as
well say a word for the worm. Any one
caught in the act of fishing in Hampshire
with a worm would be promptly expelled
by his club. As he wonld have broken the
rules, that would serve the rascal right
but really the taboo of the worm is, like
crimes' acts in the eyes of the Liberal par
ty when it is the other party which has
passed them, a means of turning innocence
The worm in Itself is inoffensive. Very
often, especially on a bright summer day,
it would be less of a failure than a fly usu
ally is, but that should not be accounted
to its discredit. The streams on which it
is fot'luUdeu are so well Btocked that no
harm would be done, although all the fish
ermeu on them tried worm now and then
and succeeded as often and as abundantly
as their skill permitted. Succewf ul worm
fishing in a clear stream is no mean art.
It might be rated higher than success with
the dry fly, for while it is true that the
trout as a rule prefer a worm to an In
sect, it is also true that to cast a worm so
as to attract tbe fish is much more difficult
than to "place" a dry fly neatly. London
Chemistry of a Tear.
A tear from the eye of a representative
of the Caucasian races is found to be com
posed of water, salt, soda, phosphate of
line, phosphate of soda and mucus. From
the eye of an African the elements com
posing the tear are found to be the same as
the above, with the single exception of the
phosphate of soda, and with the addition
ot a slight trace of ammonia. The Eski
mos and the fishing Finns seldom shed
tears, but when they do chmists say they
are exceedingly salty.
The chemical elements in tbe Caucasian
tear arrange themselves into particles that
look like fish bones; thoso from a negro's
tear form a rude cross, while the same

IT WASN'T A DOG.
Finally the Street Cor Conductor's CnrU
oalty Was Satisfied.
They stood on the crossing of Fourth
avenue and Eleventh street The old lady
was completely occupied with a birdcage
on each arm and the old man was obliged
to deposit a parcel, two baskets and a
satchel before he was able to wave the free
band at a passing car. This latter act,
however, made necessary the gathering up
of the bundles anew, and progress from the
curb to the car was slow and painful.
The old lady, whose natural stoutness
was tremendously augmented by tbe bird
cage additions, prudently took the car door
sideways and secured a seat without mis
bap, though the car was somewhat crowd
ed. Her husband, however, was only able
to stagger on board, drop two satchels and
basket on the platlorm and gasp lor
The other basket was a large covered
one, and he clung to it with such solici

"It's a dog."
"Yes, it is. Get off tbe car."
"I won't." said the old man stoutly, hug
ging his precious bosket and pushing in
side the car.

conductor roughly. "No dogs allowed on

"I haven't a dog," echoed her husband
"Leave that old man alone," yelled the
muscular passenger. "You wonldn't dare
to monkey with a young man. Come out
and settle it wid me."
The conductor made no reply to this se
ductive Invitation, but by a quick move
ment he pried up the lid of the basket, in
tending to look in, but before that was
possible out popped the green and solemn
head of large parrot.
