They met again In the afternoon,

are preparing a list of grievance?, to
be submitted to Superintendent C. C.

President Mitchell Coming.
President John Mitchell, of the Tni

in this city Friday. National Com
mitteeman Frederick DHcher gave out
this information yesterday, but de
clined to shed any light upon the
wherefore of Mr. Mitchell's coming.
It is understood, however, that there
arc a number of matters If importance
which will bo attended to by the na

meetings which aro being nightly held
throughout the district, Both national
and dlhtrlot 'organizers address these
assemblages, of which there are sev

Queer Anthracite Specimens.
Charles Law, of West Tittston, has
for ninny years been authority on all
things pertaining to the history of this
valley and its products, and especially
Yesterday he showed to a. Daily
News reporter two specimens which
.ire now on their way to the Smith
honian Institute at "Washington, D. C.
and which later will form a portion of
a collection to lie placed on exhibi
tion at tho Pan-American exposition
at Ruffiilo. One of these specimens,
found in the Butler mine, is purely
foal mid in weight about five pounds,
nnd Its peculiarity is that when ex
posed to tho light, there Is a reflec
tion of all the colors of the rain
bow. ' Tho otlicr was egg shaped and was
found in what is known as a pot-hole
in Wyoming and on thn exact spot
where a cave occurred several years
ago, wrecking the postofllco in that
borough. Of course, there are thous
ands of mineral specimens displayed
in places that bavo been unearthed in
tills valley, but the above are the lat
est finds and are of such value tbnt
they will find a place in the greatest

The Philadelphia and Reading' Coal

Some of It Made from Cotton and
Some from Glue.
Iljney Sutherland in Ainslcc's.
Cotton has often masqueraded as
silk, but it seems rather queer that it
can be made into real silk. The ni
trated cotton is put into a cylinder
with ether-alcohol and slowly revolved
for twelve hours. Then under a pres
sure of forty-flve atmospheres, it is
squirted out of glass tubes whose bore
is 1-1000 of an inch. The air solidifies
the threads as they are carried along
on moving bolts. They are fine as silk
worm filaments and as lustrous. They
take dyes well, but they are so in
flammable as to bo almost explosive,
obviously a fatal defect. Just here
is where the modern chemist shows
the kind of a creature he is and what
his principles are. I don't know what
you think of a man that deliberately,
and to compass his own selfish ends,
lanes advantage of the little weak
nesses of tho elements and Introduces
a tempter into peaceful chemical com
binations to lead astray some mem
bers. Such men exist. They get their
living by Btioh tricks. They oven hold
up their heads and call themselves re
spectable. Here is this nltryl, living
happily, so far as we know, with cellu
lose, and along comes tho chemist and
brings in a smirking, stylish Lothario
of a stilpbydrato of calcium, and away
goes the giddy, deluded nltryl, leaning
on his arm .lust like the poor lady In
"Rast Lynne." All that the deseileil
artificial silk can do after that is to
look pretty. It never plucks up the
courage to explode. Well, it's a queer
One of the uses of this modification
of the cottony, pithy structure found
In all vegetables is to spin it into
threads and char It for the luminous
loops in incandescent lamps. Also,
when woven into a kind of bobblnet
nnd impregnated with the oxides of
thorium and rerlttm. it makes the
mantle of the AVelsbaeh light.
Artificial silk can also he made out
of glue, Tho gelatine is dissolved in
water to the pioper consistency, dyed
nnd forced through tiny glass tubes
as with tho cellulose silk, it is really
nnd animal product like the silkworm
silk, but tho manufacturers have not
yet bepn able to gel Hie appliances for
water-proofing the thread with tho
vapor of formaline that tho silkworm
has which 'secretes the same drug for
the same purpose, Also, it Is qultn dlf.
ficult to dry tho thread milr-kly on tho
rnirylng bells, for you cm easily see
that they cannot bo made verv long
Another difficulty Is that tho silk must
bo dyed beforo'lt is spun, nnd as gela
tine has a way of not being the same
shade for tho samo quality of &tlckt
ness, It is pretty haul to tell what
color you will got till It Is dry, If
tho bpun, tin pads are soaked In the
dye-pot, the stuff thinks that thin Is
11 new way of making wine jelly and
makes all possible haste to change It
self ftom diess goods Into dessert.
Still. It makes a very pretty silk, If
you don't wear It out in a rain stoim.

shall pay the costs.
The rule to show cause why the
name of Sam Jurkovltz shall not be

Ladies come' to our Millinery Store from far and
near to get ideas of styles. Wo have many imitators but
no rivals in this region in vast extent of stock, in variety
of models and inflexible moderation of price. Our Milli
nery Department is equipped with such experience and
taste that no mistakes are made in adapting the correct
designs to suit faces, and particularly those difficult to
satisfactorily frame. One trained to study such matters
is far more capable of deciding the suitability of a hat
than is the wearer, who may not know her possibilities
of beauty. Often it is the hat which gives the touch of
distinction to a lady's appearance, while there is nothing
in the world which can make her such a ghastly failure
as unbecoming headgear.
A limited number of hats may be seen in our win
dows which are copied in our own workrooms from
famous Paris models; the originals would cost you from
25.00 up; these are marked 5.00.
See our window with the repro
