the needle has been journeying to and

so near tho surface that everyone
though it would work Us way out, but
It did not. It turned und sturted on a
Several years passed before it was
felt again. In the meantime the girl
had become .Mrs. Durham. Then it
was felt under the left shoulder blade.
Two years later Mrs. Durham felt it
near her right elbow. Four years af
terward it ussalled Mrs. Durham's
right knee and an attempt was made
to cut It out, but It got uway. So !t

doctor succeeded ill cutting it out. It

New York, Jan. 29. The general sales
agents of the unthrui-itH coal companies
adjourned alter recommending a produc
tion for February of W per cent, of the
June, lsS4, output. This will make ubout
2.IHW.U0O tons for February. No change

According to a member of the "minor
ity stockholders' committee" of the Phila
delphia and Erie Railroad company the
next move In tlu-lr campaign uiiiilnst the
management will be an utti-mpt to secure
certain Information they are seeking by
mandamus proceedings. The ipiestlous ut
Issue refer chiefly to the division of
through freight receipts between Phila
delphia and Kile and the lessee of the
road, the Pennsylvania Rallroud com
puny. It Is reported that the Wllkes-Ilarre
and Eastern Railroad company has made
contract with anthracite coal miners In
the Wyoming region that will insure it a
tonnage of l.ow.uou ton per annum. This
will nearly double the previous coal ton
nage of the New York, Susquehunne und
Western railroad, which ow ns the Wllkes
Barre and Eastern. Although the last
named was opened for business on Oct. 1,
it has not yet beun to derive the full
benefit of its coal carrying contracts, for
the largest producer It hus contracted
with cannot turn over Its product until
The mechanical department of the Penn
sylvania has completed the Seciflcntions
for a monster freight engine. With these
engines It Is proposed to haul heavy
trains ut high speed, us the drivers wlil
be larger than on the class "It" engine,
the heaviest type now built. The llrst
built will be used for hauling the dressed
meat and vegetable trains, n tralllc which
has reached largo proportions on the
Pennsylvania lines. These engines will be
run only between Pittsburg and Jersey
City, as the class "K" engine Is as heavy
as the company would like to run regular
ly on lines west oC Pittsburg.
It Is suld now that the famous Jeddo
tunnel cases will be nettled during the
coming week and the Injunction with
drawn. It Is said thut the fanners living
in Butler valley who huve instituted pro
ceedings restraining the company from
tiring the final blasts and releasing the
sea of wuter which Is contained In the
severul Hooded mines have become recon
ciled. Agents for the company have been
ut work for a month or two trying to ef
fect a settlement. The diimuge to the
farm lands will be offset considerably by
the Increased markets und general busi
ness which Is sure to follow the rebuild
ing of the different towns. It Is under
stood thut the opening will take place In
the early purt of February. George Scott,
one of the contractors who pushed the
work to such a successful completion,
stated that It will tuke but a few min
utes to remove the remaining harrier af
ter the legal restrnlnt shall have been
withdrawn. Mr. Scott snys that the sur
veys and final borings came out so exact
thut they will be able to draw the water
off ut any sliced desired. It Is understood
that one of the stipulations made by the
prosecutors In the case before the settllmr
wus that the water should be drawn off
gradually so tint t the creeks nnd fishing
streams shall not bn polluted any more
than is necessary. It is estimated that It
will take three months to dear the mines

Washhtirn-Crosby Co. winb to assure their many pat
rons that tlicy will this vcur hold to their usual custom
of milling STRICTLY OLD WHEAT until the new crop
is fully cured. New wheut is now upon the market, and
owing to the excessively dry weather many millers are
of .the opinion that it is already cured, and in proper
condition for milling. Washburn-Crosby Co. will take
no risks, and will allow the new wheat fully threo
months to mature before grinding.
This careful attention to every detail of milling has
