The hard conl trade is Int'llnod to be

the Il.ist theie Is still some demand,
enoiiRh In the iirkiokuU' to move n
lot of io.il, but the tiade Is falling back
into dullness after last week's lluiiy.
HBP coal Is the size most wanted.

The foundation for the new v,nhery
which will dispone of "l'aton's" uilm
pile is finished and eveiythlng Is teddy
for the carpenter1-. The washeiy will
be a large one and as the culm heap Is
also laige and tontalns an enoi metis
quantity of good io.il, thete will be
woik there for many .t da. The heap
is said to bo one of the best in the
northern hatd to.il Held. It was made
when tiler was no di umnd for the
Fmallcr slyes of roal which now find

the Ontario l.tlltoad leading to the

from the old No. 1 to the lueaker at
the Kldge. At pic.-ent the load passes
over the etiliii pile. It Is jnoposed to
remove It fiom thete to the back of the
culm pile so that It will not Inteifete
with the woik of disposing of the pile.
Effect of tho Strike.
Concerning the late si i Ike of the sta
tionary tiremen theie is this comment
in the runout Issue of the Knglneejlng
nnd Mining Journal:
"The sttike of the uicmcn In the an
thracite coal legion Listed only a few
days and was unstinessful It failed
because the support ot the 1'nlted Mine
Wotkers was not gien to It, and the
oflkeis of that a spoliation tendeied
the servhes of theli men to take the
places of the Hi emeu so far as was
necessary to keep the pumps going and
the mines tree fiom water. This ac
tion was taken in pursuance of tho
promises made on behalf of the Vnlted
Mine Woikers at the time of the settle
ment ot the geneial stilke last fall,
that the union would pi event any un
iecesaiy and vexatious utilkes. In
this case the agreement has been kept;
and the action taken lias certainly been
Judicious. It is not only the canylng
out of an implied contiuu. but It also
goes to show that the Pnlted Mine
Woikers contiol tho situation and can
command tonsldoratlnn for the i lalms
Which they may make hoieaftei."
There weie no new developments In

AN OLD-TIME ROMANCE.
How Miss Grisel Held Up the Post
man ond Saved Her Father.
I'rmn The I.ond'n IcIpbmpIi.
The Kail of Abeidern, speaking at
a dinner of the Pulled Kingdom Pch
tal and Telogiaph Sen ice Benevolent
Society nt Abeideen. said they had to
go back to the old mall coach days to
set tho plctuiesfiie aspect of the postal
service, and to lliustiate this he mint
ed a loinantie incident which occuned
in the lelgn of James II 111010 than
200 ears ago. Sir John Cochrane, son
of a line old nobleman, Lend Dundonald
who was one nt those who thought
the liberties and Interests of the coun
tiy weie In danger owing to the policy
of the government'of the day, and 10
slsted it. Sh John was betiavecl into
the hands of the enemy and was lodged
in Edinburgh Jail. One night the door
of the pilson opened, and he hoaid the
voice of his daughter (Jilsel, who was
allowed to have many talks with him.
Meanwhile the news came that his
condemnation had been settled b the
council, nnd that the mall would c 01110
next week with his death w.trinnt. MsS
(lilsel Cociiiane told her father that
she iiad to go away for a few das.
He said: "I hope you will do nothing
lash," nnd she leplled that she would
do nothing veiy i.ish. She lode fiom
I'MInbuigh to lieiwick, where her old
nuiso lived, and tlieie she changed
her clothes for c lotheh of a bov. Then
she inde to a place between HeiwUk
and Helfotd, vvlieie she made Inquliies
tegardlng tho King's mall messongcis
and where they used to put up.
Ai living at a small inn about four
miles south of Heiwlek, she asked for
something to eat. The hostess told her
not to mnVe a nnlse, because in the
box-bed the King's mall mess.enger was
asleep. "Do lie nulet," shesald, "with
voiu knite and folk" She began her
meal. "Can you get me some water?"
The hostess 'aid: "Why a buiw lad
like yon hould sup nie." "Have jou
no cold, fiesh water'.'" If jou give 1110
water I will pay you the same as for
the ale." The hostess explained that
she would have to go to the well, n
long distance off, and It would take ton
minutes, but the clil or mtbor .
patent boy poisuaded the woman to go
lor 1110 water.
Dining her alitenco tho glil went to
the box-bed theie was the mall-mes-
senger asleep a "swack" fellow with
his mallbag under hks head, using it
for a pillow. On the table weie his
pllols. and veiy neivously the glil
withdiew the ch.uges. No sooner was
this done than the hostess letumed
with the water. Tho glil finished her
meul, went on tho mad, made a cir
cuit, and met the mall messenger, and
they lode together a bit. After a shcut
chat she dievv a little nenier and said:
"My f 1 lend, 1 have a fancy for this
mallbag." "If It Is a Joke," said tho
messenger. "It Is a pietty poor one."
She took out .1 little pistol and present
ed It. Tho messenger pulled out his
pistols, nnd snnp! the hist missed file.
Ho thiew It away and drew tho othei
sna! He had to hand over tho mall
bag, and she rode into an adjoining
She opened the bag, dtew out an of.
fliliil letter, and lode with it to her
nurse's house, wheto It was found to
contain the death win rant of her
father. It was put Into the flic. She
resumed her glil'H clothes and tode
quietly to Kdlnbuigh. That caused so
much delay that they managed to get
n reprieve, and her father was isaved.
He (the speaker) had a personal In
terest in that Incident, as he under
stood Grisel Cocluano was u dliect an
cestor of Lady Abeideen.

How Meissonier's Gardener Pioved
Himself a Fine Botanist.
A good story Is being told nbottt a
gardener who vtas for many eats In
the oinply of Messlonler.
This gnidetier was not only wonder
fully skilled In the ait of cultivating
uoivei's nnd vegetables, but be olio was
a Hue scientist and, ns he was en
dowed villi a phenomenal nionioiy, he
was able to give offhand the hcitiinltal
name of any plant that was shown to
him. Some of hli employer'- ft lends
fieciucntl) tiled tn bailie hltn by hand
ing him seeds or cuttings of exotic or
other out of the way plants', but they
never slice eeded.
Now, Molssonler was pi mid of hlni,
but ho vowed that he would, once nt
least bewilder him, nnd one day while
lmillo Angler was dining with hlni, ho
summoned the gardner nnd, taking
from his pocket a small paper package,
lu which he hud pievlously placed some
eggs of cliled hen Ing, he said to him:
"lleie nie some cuilous seeds, (Jan
you tell me what they nroV"
"Of couise, I can, lr," leplled tho
gardner, and, after examining them
for a moment or two, he gave them a
most Impressive I.ntln name.
"If ou sow them now," asked the
painter, "how- long will It take for
thorn to appear obove ground?"
"A fortnight," was the reply.
"Well," said Melssonler, "I wish you
would sow them at once, for I am
curlou1 to see what kind of plant It
A foitnlght later i:mile Augler, deslr
Ing to see the end of this joke, came
to bieakfnst at the painter's villa, and
as he nnd his host weie at table the
gardner presented himself nnd said:
"If you gentlemen will oblige me by
stepping Into the goiden, I will show
you the plants that those cuilous seeds
The two f i lends followed him to tho
oonsoi vntory, where he pointed out to
them 12 odd-looking objects In a box
