New Throwing- Machine.
The Atwood-.Morrison company, of
Stonington, Conn., have just placed on
exhibition on the first door of their
show room, 275 Market street, this city,
si machine that will be of great interest
to the silk trade, especially the throw
lug branch. This machine spins first
time, doubles and twists, all three pro
cesses in one. It is u model of simplic
ity and also mechanical skill for which
this company is noted. The spindles on
machine are belt driven, in place of the
old style of band drive.
The gieat advantage of tills machine
over the old style Is the quality of work
it turns out. The great saving iu floor
space, and the small amount of help
required to run it. They have the ma
chine in actual operation, and the trade
is cordially invited to call and inspect
It. The company report a great de

COAL AS FUEL
TO CELEBRATE ANNIVERSARY
OF ITS EIRST USE.
On Tuesday, Eeb. 11, It Will Be One
Hundred Years Since Coal Was
First Used to Make a Fire in TjU
zeme County The Old Fell House
Has the Distinction of Being the
Place Where the Test Was Made.
Event to Be Commemorated by a
"One of the noteworthy Incidents
In connection with tho city history will
bo recalled Tuesday, Feb. 11, when
Weiss Bros., proprietors or the Old Fell
house, will celebrate the one hundredth
annlvc-isary of the day coal was first
utilized as fuel in Luzerne county,"
says the Wilkes-Barro News. "This
important discovery was made by
Jesse Fell, at that time a proprietor
of the, log tavern on Northampton
street. It happened, so history says.
In tho usual way, by accident. Several
patrons entered the log cabin. It was
decidedly cold. Some one suggested
that the proprietor erect a fire place.
He hesitated for a while, as a little
money was greatly prized, but being
pioneers, they were willing to try, and
If It proved a failure they would try
again. The old grate, which Is in good
state of preservation, was put together
by a blacksmith named Hurst. Others
completed the fire place.
"On the 11 th day of February, 1S02.
a large crowd gathered In the tavern
and the fire place was tested.
The chimney had a good draught
and In less than a few minutes
the ilames were flickering. Very
soon the coals became warm, some
cracked and later they reddened,
much to the delight of the spectators.
It is needless to say that an evening
of jollification followed. The news
soon spread and In less than a month
the wood fires were discarded and coal
HONOR BELONGS TO FELL.
"To Jesse Fell belongs tho credit,
though some others claim the honor,
but historians as well as family his
tory have proven beyond a doubt, that
this was the first place where coal was
used as fuel In Luzerne county.
"The grate on which the coal was
used was made out of wrought Iron
and was never burned or mutilated by
the fire. It Is now a historical relic and
deeply prized, but the proprietors of tho
Old Fell house, tho Weiss Bros., are
not selfish, but allow the grate -to re
main In the old fire place, where it can
bo seen by all who visit tho ancient
building. The room In which it Is lo
cated is nnother historical landmark,
as within this modest structure the
first session of the Luzerne county
court was held. James Cadden was
tried for the murder of Daniel Gllllgun
and convicted. Tills was In 1849.
"Organizations were very seldom
heard of at that time, but there were
a few, who were habitual callers at the
Inn, who did not forget tho Masoulu or
der, and one day decided to organize
a branch In Luzerne county. It did not
take them very long to select a place,
for no better ono could he selected than
tho old Inn, where tho bright glowing
coals Illuminated tho roughly fur
nished room. An organization was
perfected and It Is now one of tho
most flourishing lodges In this city.
"It must bo understood that this was
a public house. The license wns very
cheap. One could bo procured for
$8. A copy of the document Is now In
tho possession of the present proprie
tors, and they treasuro It very highly,
It Is peculiarly worded, having ancient
"The building Itself Is a unique one
and there Is no other like It In the
city, The ceilings nro very low. Tho
beams were mado of logs taken from
the woods In their rude shape, put to
gether with a hutchet and saw. There
have been some changes, however, as
It has been deemed advisable from time
to time by the various proprietors.
Jesse Fell built a small addition In tho
rear. This was In 176S, People began
to emigrate to the valley and ho de
cided to add another building ten
years later. This made the tavern
mora commodious. Further Improve
ments were mude In 1823 and 1850. Dur
ing the latter year tho rear portion
was torn down and a blacksmith shop
was erected which was occupied for
some time by Robert Zimmerman.
This was finally torn down In order
to evade the tiro limits, A high fence
was erected In Us place.
"In the year 1873 the building was
occupied by Jucob Buffer. Ho erected
another large fence, nnd built a roof
overhead, making a pleasant concert
hall. There wa8 plenty of wholesome
pleasure during these memorable days.
The hotel, It was not known us an Inn
any longer, changed hands very fro
qucntly. It was conducted by Charles
Gabel, and then L. Allbtich camo In
possession, In 1SSG the rights nnd
privileges were purchased by Council
man Philip Weiss. His brother, An
thony, eatne In possession some yeors
ago. Now'lt is being conduoted by N.
II. and F. J. Weiss. Tho latter nro two
progressive young German Americans
nnd nro well trained hotel men, and
that Is why their place Is ono of the
most popular In the city.
"A short time ngo the Weiss Bros,
decided that It would bo a very good
move to celebrate the ono hundredth
anniversary of the discovery of coal as
a fuel. Tho Idea Is meeting with popu
lar approval and Is sure to bo one of
the most enjoyable events of the yenr.
Tho nffalr .will be held on Tuesday,
February 11, and tho publlcwlll bo In
vited to make an Inspection.
MADE BY PIONEERS.
"Tho grate and fire place are a com
mon bit of workmnnshlp, It Is true, but
there is something nbout them which
makes them attractive. In the first
place, they are old, made by pioneers,
who wore always busy, If not active
In warfare and wero tireless In their
efforts to develop tho bountiful Wyo
ming Valley. Little did they Imagine
when tho coal was tested, that one
day this city would be the centre ot
a great mining Industry. The old set
tlers were the men who led the wny
nnd deserve the credit.
"The grate Is the centre of attraction.
During the centennial of 1870 It was
shipped to Philadelphia, and was on
exhibition for some time. At the con
clusion of the celebration the grate
was missing. Detectives wero placed
on the trail and for weeks they made
a diligent search and succeeded In
finding It. While on the train It was
stolen again, but It was found nnd
shipped to tho owners. It has been
carefully guarded ever since.
"The fire place has been remodeled
several times, as the red brick broke
and crumbled. It was found necessary
to patch and cement them. The last
setting wns done by Ferdinand Lange.
who at that time was an employe of
Herman Fry. The latter was a mem
ber of the legislature. Mr. Lange is
now a candidate for council. The
grate was manufactured by a black
smith named Hurst, who enme to this
city from New England. This relic Is
on exhibition In the parlor ot the ho
tel." THE MARKETS
