TIIE SCRANTON TIUBUKE-TIIUIIS DAT MORNING. OCTOBER 25, 1894.
MINE, MILL AND RAILROAD.
Probably the most expert mine of
ficial in the Wyoming coal region, ac
cording to the Philadelphia Inquirer,
Is James B. Davles, the general super
intendent of the Plymouth Coal com
pany. Mr. Davies has charge cf the
important operations of Haddock,
Shohk & Co., at Plymouth and Luzerne
borough, and he is credited with having
saved a large portion of the town of
Plymouth from destruction threatened
by a cave-in of the Dobson colliery,
w hich was operated without regard to
proper care of the surface. He was the
flrBt to design a culm separator on a
large scale, and the refuse from the
coal at both the breaker and separ
ator is washed into the old workings
of the mines for the purpose of render
ing them secure from collapse. In ad
dition to his ability Mr. Davies is re
nowned for his fearlessness and there
has not been a disaster for many years
where he has not been foremost in the
work of rescue.
Superintendent Bowers, of the Dela
ware and Hudson collieries in and
around Carbondale, received a telwgram
Tuesday afternoon instructing him to
put the mines under his charge on
three-quarter time until further
notice. This Is In part due
to the Increase in orders owing
to the approach of winter weather
and also to the fact that the supply on
hand has greatly decreased of late from
the short time worked at the mines.
The Hallstead colliery of the Dela
ware, Lackawanna and Western com
pany at Duryea, that was flooded about
a month ago, will be in readiness to
resume operations three weeks hence.
The water in the first vein has all been
pumped out, and a force of workmen
are at work this week removing the
large World's fair pump to the second
vein, 308 feet below the first. The pump
will be in position in a few days, and it
will take all of next week to pump the
water from this vein. The debris will
then be cleared away, and the mine
Will be ready to resume operations.
One great annoyance in the present
method of lighting trolley cars is that
every time the trolley slips off the car Is
left In darkness. According to the
Buffalo Express, a system of lighting
cars by electricity has been devised by
W. M. Miner, the electrical engineer of
th American Manufacturing and En
gineering company, New Yark, and a
demonstration of it was recently given
ns Installed in a car in Hoboken, N. J.
The visitors were conveyed in the car,
and In running over the line the trolley
circuit was frequently broken In order
to show the value of this system in
always keeping the car illuminated
wheter the trolley wheel is on or off.
The system consists in the use of a
small storage battery of six Donaldson
Macrae storage colls, which are used to
light a duplicate set of lamps should
the trolley come off or the motor cur
rent give out or be Interrupted In any
way, the battery being switched on
automatically when the motor circuit
Is broken. A trtflley-current is passed
through an electromagnet, which com
pletes a circuit through Incandescent
lamps connected in series in the usual
manner. The same current also passes
through the storage battery, keeping it
A late electric device, according to
the same authority, is a chair to run
on a trolley wire. A man can sit in this
chair and fly through the air at the
rate of thirty miles per hour, pro
vided he does not slip his trolley, in
which event he would be likely to come
to grief. The trolley chair was origin
ally invented for the purpose of ena
bling Judges to follow a horse race
around the track. Richard E. Sherman,
of Chicago, is the inventor. The inten
tion is to suspend the car upon wire
three-fourths of an Inch in diameter,
No. 16 copper wire being used to carry
the current at 110 volts, and the sup
porting wlra being suspended from
wooden poles at the side of the track.
The car is made of wood, and is of suffi
cient size to accomodate two persons.
The motor is placed under the seat
and is controlled by a braking device
operated by the feet. The armature
carries upon Its shaft a wheel belted to
another wheel mounted upon the shaft,
which also carries the wheel by which
the car is suspended.
There is no longer any attempt to re
strict anthracite tonnage to the recent
ly made limit, says the Philadelphia
Press. A number of the trading com
panies have given orders to work full
time and from this time on the great
producers will compete with each other
in sending a large amount of coal to
market, rather than In restricting the
output. It is said the new order of
things, which New York people expect
will develop Into a coal war, was begun
by the Lackawanna, but the Lacka
wanna says the Lehigh Valley was the
first offender. The result will be to
make much lower prices. For a long
time it has been evident that the an
thracite trade needed some rndlcal
treatment to get it Into shape. It is now
likely to have it. The result may be
unpleasant for a time, but In the end it
will be beneficial. The latest agrement
to maintain a certain allotment of ton
nage was rather more formal than the

at fault A slnggish, torpid liver de
ranges your stomach and kidneys and
bowels. It poisons your blood. You

The best-known remedy in the world
Is Carlsbad. People go there, not only
for a disordered liver, but for all the
diseases that follow it, and for jaundice
and chronic liver complaint, and every
ailment of the kind. .
There's no need for you to go. You

leading companies, and it was' under
the impression that In order to save the

It has, says the Hazleton Standard,
been talked about for some time that
the Silver Brook No. 1 breaker will be
closed down indefinitely on Nov. 1.
The fact Is there is too much coal pro
duced at the 8trlppings and various
slopes within the Silver Brook com
pany's domain for the breaker to pre
pare, and besides enough steam cannot
be generated at No. 2 breaker to handle
the present supply of coal expediently,
without adding No. 1 breaker's supply.

An Interesting rock drilling contest
took place at Miner's Mills Saturday
afternoon fur i0 a side between Ed.
Loftus, of Wllkes-Barre, and David J.
Aston, of Miner's Mills. Loftus won,
breaking the record for this county
by one and one-half inches, he driliiitf

It Is stated that the Inter-State Com
merce commission has In preparation
suits against the Pennsylvania and the
Baltimore and Ohio railroads, alleging
cutting of rates. The maximum penalty
for this violation of the law Is $5,000
fine and two years' imprisonment for
the offending official, either or both, at
the discretion of the Judge.
Hails are being laid by the Clearfield
Quarrying company on a short railroid
that will open up what Is expected to
be the largest quarry in the state. The
road Is fom miles long, and connects
with the Euffalo, Rochester and Pitts

tract for 1,000.000 yards of stone, to be
furnished principally for a bridge over

New York, Oct. 24 Speculation ftt
the Stock exchange was lifeless today,
total sales having footed up only 65,
S44 shares. American Sugar, which was
the most active stock on the list, was
traded In to the extent of 8,700 shares
The market is Indifferent to news and
neither the poor statements of the ft.
Paul and Atchlnson for the third week
of October, nor the comparatively fav
orable report of the Northern Pacific
for the same period had the slightest
Influence on prices. Holders appar
ently have made up their minds to keep
what they own In the way of securl
ties until times Improve and bear tac
tics and unfavorable developments fail
to dislodge long stock.
Gold exports were again the Bubject
of discussion, and while the expecta
tion Is that some gold may go by Sat
urday's fast steamers, nothing definite
has been decided about the mater. The
fluctuations in the prominent issues
were confined to the fraction in every
Instance. As a rule standard stocks
opened a shade higher, then sold off
and In the last hour improved again.
There were some wide changes In the
specialties. Consolidated Gas broke 2
to 116V4 on the announcement that the
East River company was ready to sup
ply gas In the uptown districts. Later
the stock recovered to 117, Manhat
tan was firmer on covering of short
contracts and ranged between 1.06
and 107. It is estimated that about
6,000 shares of stocks have been covered
during the last two days. Tennessee
Coal and Iron broke 2 to 14 on the
liquidations said to be for the account
of the De Rordethen Interest, which has
retired from the company. In the af
ternoon the early drain was recovered
owing to statements by insiders that
the property was in good shape. New
Jersey Central on light trading fell 214
to 107. The talk was that the anthra
cite coal trade was demoralized owing
to over-protiuction, and that the com
lng meeting of the sales agents will be
a lively one.

HOODOOED BY FALSE TEETH.
Remarkable Story Told by a Drnmmcr at
An Incident occurretVat the Wvomlnu
House the other night that well lllus
trates the superstltition of commercial
travelers and which proved a great
source of amusement to Night Clerk
A Trenton drummer who Is well
known in Scrnnton arrived on the 2.10
morning Lackawanna train. He waited
until several other travelers had been
assigned rooms and then In a myste
rious manner asked if there was a fur
nace or other tire in the hotel where he
could "burn something." The clerk
said the steam heating plant wns In
the basement whore the bell-boy could
take the articles to be cremated.
"Not much," said the drummer, "I'm
not going to run any chances; I'll see
this package placed In the fire myself.
He accompanied the remark by taking
from his satchel a small paper box
which he opened and showed the aston
ished clerk a set of false teeth. He met
the clerk's expression of surprise by
saying he would explain matters after
the teeth had been consigned to the
flames. A moment later he and the
bell-boy returned from the basement.
The drummer bought a cigar, heaved
several sighs of satisfaction and told
the following story:
'Eight dnys ago Charley Blaisdell,
Alec. Ewlng, Jr., George May and
met In Susquehanna. Every one of us
was In good spirits and each had had
a profitable week, except Blaisdell
Now that's a particular point In the
story. Blaisdell Is one of the most sue-
cessful drummers on the road and none
of us could account for his expressions
of dull trade. He could not understand
It either, but said that merchants nnd
druggists who always gave him large
bills had for some reason or other no
need for his line. After conversing and
telling yarns until nearly midnight
bade the party good-night and turned
in, as I had to catch an early morning
train. The next morning I procured
my gample case from the hotel office
ana leit on tne isrie road.
'When I first showed my samples
that dny I discovered the Bet of false
teeth. I was selling to a woman buyer
and could only make some remark
about 'a joke' and try to look comfort
able. I didn't make a Bale, however.
That noon I placed the teeth In my
satchel at the hotel with the Intention
of sliding them Into the coat pocket of
May, Ewlng or Blaisdell, whichever one
I met first.. Since then my sales have
fallen 20 per cent, from the average of
the past two months, and, too, at a time
of the year when business is always at
least fairly good. I have written my
house three letters naylng I wns
troubled with rheumatism, as an ex-
cuse for my poor showing.
'Not until this morning did I know
the cause of my poor luck. I ran
against May and Ewlng in Carbondale
and felt free to tell them how dlsap-
pointed I had been In my week's work,
They said trade was good with them,
and when I Inquired about Blaisdell
they remarked having seen him the day
previous and he had had one of the
most prosperous weeks or tne fall
trade. This reminded me of the false
teeth and I charged then Individually
and collectively with putting up a Job
on me. They swore by all that wa
good and holy they were Innocent and
finally said Blaisdell was the culprit,
"I learned from them that Jack W1I
lets, of Syracuse, found the teeth In
room in a hotel. He presumed they
had been left by someone who had
bought a new set; anyhow, Jack ap
propriated them and .carried them
about In his grip until he met Charley
Blaisdell. Blaisdell found them the
next day in his sample case. While th
teeth were possessed by Willets and
Blaisdell those fellows might just
well have stayed home and saved trav
ellng expenses. They didn't do a land
ofllce business while they carried th
teeth, and I know blankety-blank well
I haven t.
"No, sir, I wouldn't carry the things
another day for J20; I'll have to hustle
for at least a month to make up my
New -vases. Latest. Davldow Bros.

Among the best things shown are:
Warp Henrietta, Metelase, Melrose, Eudora, etc. The last named "Eudora," being the very latest Cloth out. The "Eu-
dora" is a triumph in textile weaving. It is a Silk Warp, and exquisite in its rich softness. Some say "it's only a

ereat advantage, too, in these davs of Umbrella Skirts. Full Coats, etc.
It has extra weight Not so heavy as to make it too warm fof a good all-around-year's dress, but just enough
heavier than the Henrietta to give it the appearance of having the body of a Ladies' Cloth without its overburdening warmth.
It positively will not catch the dust. The dust shedding qualities of Priestley's goods have always been their

of milling STRICTLY OLD WHEAT until the new crop

condition for milling. Washburn-Crosby Co. will take'
no risks, and will allow the new wheat fully three
months to mature before grinding.
This careful attention to every detail of milling has
