Dr. Gordy ppoke on 'psychology. He

character of the fad Is Its passing

lecturer -was Professor Twl tmyer on the
subject. "Development of Civic Vir
tues In the Ppuibllc Sahools."
Man Is a gregarlou.i animal, that is,
he does not like to live alone. There
was a man once who lived alone, but
God saw It was not good for him to

him where he had 'been all day, when
he oaime heme in the evening; he had
not the experiences that many men
undergro, yet he, was not content.
The speaker went from this phase of
moralizatlon to the responsibilities
that ree-t -upon teachers In training the
pupils. Order Is one of the essential
principles In the school room. Study
must tie natural, that Is the head, heart

AN EXCITING RIXAVAY.
Frank llannls and E. J. Roodwln Thrown
from a Carriage on Washington
Avenue, bnt Fortunately Escaped With
That good horsemen are not lmmuned
against runaways nowadays was shown
yesterday morning. Frank Hannis
and E. J. Goodwin, respectively, In the
front rank of professional ana gentle
men drivers of this city, had a miracu
lous escano from serious accldtnt and
furnlnhed no little excitement for pe
destrians and drivers on Washington
The runaway horses were a newly
matched pair which had but a few mo
ments before been hitched together for
trial. The horse that caused the trouble
belonged to a dealer who keeps his
stock in Cuslck'B livery. It's mate was
owned by Mr. Goodwin and was hitched
with the other with the prospect of a
sale to the dealer.
Mr. Hannis held the reins and on his
left Mr. Goodwin was seated when they
left Ousick's stable on Washington ave
nue. The pair drove quietly to Vine
street, where Mr. Hannis turned the
team and headed them toward the
stables. At this point the dealer's horse
plunged forward carrying his quiet
mate with him and when Mulberry
street was reached were going on a
dead run. notwithstanding all the wiles
and strength of so good a driver as
Tho Speed Was Terrific.
The speed was terrific. Each occu
pant of the buggy knew it was suicidal
to jump. Mr. Hannis realizing the fu
tility of trying to stop the maddened
pair unaided asked Mr. Goodwin to aid
him. The two sawed and tugged at
the reins to no avail. The horses
seemed only to go the faster, and when
passing The Tribune building were fly
ing at race track speed.
Fortunately the avenue was not
crowded with vehicles, but In going
over the Linden street car tracks the
forward axle broke near the laft wheel.
Mr. Goodwin tried to remain in the
bufrgy, but the lurching of his compan
ion crowded him out and he was rolled
and slid about forty feet on the smooth
asphalt pave, landing near the curb
stone. Meanwhile the speed of the
crazed horses was unslackened and Mr.
Hannis made a forced exit from the
buggy In much the same fashion as did
Mr. Goodwin. Neither sustained a cut
Ono Horse Badly Injured.
The team collided with a dray at the
corner of Spruce street and came to a
halt on the sidewalk of the new Mears
building between two piles of bricks.
The pole snapped and was forced into
the chest of the dealer's horse Injuring
him so badly that he may not live.
Mr. Goodwin's horse was uninjured and
on being driven later In the day gave
no sign of having remembered the run
away. Persons who witnessed the runaway
and the lightning speed of the horsea
orvpied how the occupants of the
buggy escaped with their lives.

Electricity as Underground Motive
Tower Is a Success.
TEST MADE IX BELlEVt E SHAPT
Motor Weighing Nino Tons Can Haul
Twenty Cars a Mile in Four Minutes-It
Works" on tho Pria- .
ciplo of tho Trolley,
Electricity as a motive power In the
coal mines was demonstrated to be a
success, by the 'introduction of a motor
in the Bellevuc shal: of the Delaware,
Lackawanna ar.'i Western. This mo
tor was -tested Monday and Tuesday,
and it provt l yesterday to 'be able no
only to supplant the patient mule, but
also to be capable of accomplishing
quicker, more i-iulsfactery all around
and much more work than the long
eared animal, all at lcs3 expense.
The motor in the.Bellevue mine is but
three feet 'In a'.tltud?, and (t extends
six Inches on each side beyond the raila
of the 3-foot track. lis length Is twelve
feet. The weight of It is about nine
tons. It runs on -the fame principle in
volved In the operation of the trolley
car. There are the overhead wires, fas
tened to the .roc-f iby means of wedges,
the trolley pole, controlling handles and
brakes. A motcrman has a perch of his
own, and lis master of the situation with
two 25-horse power motors at his com
mand. A large headlight throws Its
rays Into '.ihe darknets.
Themachltie was -built at the shops of
the General Electric company of Schen
ectady, iN. Y.. and Is -the first one to
prove successful, it is said. Not that
the sye-tem la del'ecvive, or anything like
that, 'but wherever these machines have
been Introduced seme hitch or another
appears to have attended the test, ne
cessitating a reshlpplng of them back
to the factory for overhauling.
How It Was Got Down the Shaft.
In lowering the motor to the bottom
of thec'haft the hoisting carriage had to
be taken out altogether and the motor
was attached to the rope Itself. It was
then let down slowly and carefully.
There were no marring incidents met
with. The work was accomplished un
der the supervision of Inside Foreman
John Hale. Outside Foreman Bert
Green, sr., and Assistant Foreman Bert
The motor, or "dinkey," as the dusky
diamond diggers call It, does Its work
similar to the engine on the steam
road. It hauls cars after It along the
gangways, and this one machine will do
away with !ght mules. The rails on
which It runs weigh forty pounds to the
yard, they are of Iron and are set in
the regular 3-foot guage.
It operates between the foot of the
shaft and the Innermost passing
branch of the main gangway. It hauled
twenty loa-dtd -cars on Monday a half
mile In two m'inutes, and has a s-pec-d
of twenty miles an ihour on an average.
It will be necessary to .press the mule
Into service yet awhile to drag the
empty cars up the chambers to the min
ers, until a machine Is invented that
will do away with that, too.
Persons acquainted with the survey
of a mine .working and the manner in
which coal is hauled to the foot of the
shaft will readily perceive that It Is
not an ImpcrasJblllty to get a similar
motor for chamber work, so that tho
stubborn nn!.mal as a factor in coal
mining will be a relic of bygone days
before the close of the nineteenth cen
tury, Powor Generated Outside.
Alongside the hoisting engine house
at the mouth of the shaft a small dy
namo room has been erected for the
purpose of generating current. It has
a capacity of 250 horsepower; the en
gine wheels make 2.'0 revolutions every
minute and the generator goes around
6M times every sixty seconds. In addi
tion to furnlshln.? current for the jno
tor,' a pump for evacuating the mine of
its surplus water will be run by It,
and a switchboard will be fed that will
give current to llumlnate the breaker,
engine houses, offices, iblacksmith shop,
and all other appurtenances of the col
liery. The hoisting capacity of the shaft Is
ninety cars an hour, and if the new
motor falls to haul cars to the foot of
the shaft with regularity sufficient to
comply with this demand, another mo
tor will be got.
The miners, laborers, and, In fact,
everyone about the mines, are amazed
at the euccepi of the now mnchlne.
This Is hut the first step In the di
rection of harnessing electricity for
motive power underground, and the
Delaware, Lackawanna and Western
company lnteds to Introduce It In all

Pottsvllle .Monday tolely to look after
our Interests in that region. On our
arrival we found 'that a number of sales

number of coal men, who, like our
selves, have property In that region, but
who live -in otlher cities. We met and

day and evening, but to my knowledge

and that time is not very far off. If the
remarks overheard by a reporter have
any significance, the meeting last night
may have formulated plans which will
not only multiply the number of our

"They were to the effect that the big
coal carriers and producers of the
northern coal fields were going to con

only In the Luzerne awl Lackawanna

during the past cummer Is attributed
by some to the Reading, whether well

losses caused 'by such a fall In prices

"Potts-vtlle will be the big coal
metropolis of the battle ground and will
bear tho same relation to this mighty
revival of Industrial activity that
Scranton holds with the phenomenal
development of the Lackawanna coal
