Earliest Times, but During tin

Approached Perfection Lithollte
Is a' New Form of Artificial Stone
That HaB Many Qualities to Re
commend It to FavorThe Lacka
wanna Board for Today.
The tut of producing stone by uniting
various substances with some kind of
rement has been practiced so long that
its origin Is lost In antiquity.
Perhaps the earliest known Instance
of artificial Btonumaklng In the world
may bo accredited to the mound build
ers, the ancestors and Immediate prede
scssors of our native American Indians.
In many of the mounds that were
built by that remarkable race of men
are found specimens of what Is popu
larly known as pottery. This would Im
ply that the wares were made from
clay, while In fact they are none other
than artificial stono, the cementing
agent being lime carbonate.
The art of producing this stone re
quired an unusual degree of intelligent
observation, as well as patience and
The process briefly described Is as fol
lows: The first work of the artist con
sisted in crushing limestone to a rather
llnoly granulated condition. He then
mixed this limestone In certain definite
ptoportions with clean, sharp sand. To
this mixture was added enough clay to
render the entire maps plastic when
worked with the proper amount of
Coming down to historical times, we
find artificial stone was produced by the
people who Inhabited Europe, Asia and
Africa at the very dawn of civilization.
The writer has in his collection of
ancient mortars and concretes, which
Is probably the largest collection of its
kind in the world, some rock-like speci
mens of artificial stone that were made
more than four thousand years ago.
During the time of the old Roman
empire, concrete was lavishly used and
much of it still remains in good condi
tion. A few years ago a body of ltoman
concrete was encountered in driving a
tunnel underneath old London, and it
was found to be so hard as to turn the
best steel tools. No natural stone could
equal It in hardness.
The records of the United States pat
ent office disclose the fact that the art
of stonemaklng has progressed during
the last half century at a constantly
There is a kind of manufactured
stone that has recently made Its ap
pearance in some of the markets, which
bids fair to fulfil all the requirements of
a perfect stone.
It is called litholltc, and when it is
used in buildings and has been tooled
or rock-faced, it is next to impossible
to distinguish it from the finest quality
of natural stone.
Llthollte Is the invention of C. W.
Stevens, of Harvey, Illinois. He is a
veteran in the stonemaklng industry.
He has labored in the cause since the
old time Frear stone was in vogue. He
has taken out many patents for stone
making, and a great deal of the best
manufactured stone work now extant
stands to his credit.
With the birth of "Iitholite." a new
era dawned upon the stone industry of
the world. At a single bound Mr. Stev
ens has overturned all the time-honored
theories that have centered around the
fascinating nrt of stonemaklng.
What the Bessemer process is to the
steel Industry, so also is the Stevens
process to the stono industry. Lltho
lite is a revelation in stone. In Iitholite
the cement is treated scientifically and
is therefore at Its best. It is supplied
with all the water required for its com
plete crystallization, and the surplus, If
any, is gradually removed.
Keduce any kind of a stone to a
granulated form, and mix two or three
parts of this material with one part of
good Portland cement, add enough
water to enable you to whip the ma
terials Into a creamy consistency.
Now plunge your hand into a pile of
sand and withdraw it carefully, and
without disturbing the impression made.
Next pour the material Into the mold
patterned by your hand, and in a short
time you have a stone hnnd, which in
every detail will be the exact counter
part of your own.
That is Iitholite. The granulated stono
has not been compacted or pressed, and
yet, Its density is practically unchanged
by its metamorphosis into iitholite.
Recently the writer was standing nt
the building on the northeast corner of
Xassau and Beekman streets In New
York city examining the "Iitholite" with
which the first two stories were con
structed, and he heard a man say,
"Now those columns there at the main
entrance are made of artificial stone,
and how cheap and nasty they do look
as compared with the rest of the work,
which Is very handsome stono from out
"West." Now tho facts are that the
columns In question were made from
western limestone, and all tho rest of
the work was dono lu "Iitholite." The
man was correct as to appearances, but
misinformed as to tho facts,
Llthollte is In fact a vast Iminovr
ment on most of the natural stones, not
only in appearance but in strength and
uniformity In texture.
.Llthollte is artificial only In the bense
that machine made Ice is artificial. The
latter Is ico just as surely as though it
were frozen in a stream or lake. So
also Is llthollte a genuine Btone. It Is
natural stono crushed to granular form
and reproduced by a simple natural
proceis In any desired form, color,
grain, texture or design, and the
cementing material of the stone is vast
ly superior In the matter of endurance,
to that which originally held the stone
Llthollte is destined to work a revo
lution in house building throughout the
The cement-stone-age Is at hand. In
the early days of our country, tho peo
ple had to be content with log houses.
After many years of patient toll, they
began to construct houses of wood
wrought In the sawmill and planing
mill. These buildings In turn will be
superseded by llthollte. In a few years
tho patents on llthollte will have ex
pired and the process is so extremely
simple that every farmer will be coat
ing his own building stones In sand.
When that duy comes, the houses wll
be warm in winter and cool in summer.
The hollow walls will be dry and ver.
mln proof. Even the roofs will be coy'
ered with llthollte slabs, and in fact the
entire building, with tho exception of
the doors and windows, will be made
of llthollte, and danger from Area will
.. tu:av eliminated,
Exterior and Interior decorations will
be cast In tho stones, which beyond the
expense of cheap patterns, costs no
inoro than plain work. Llthollte may
be heated to a cherry red and then
plunged Into cold water and Us quality
and appearance will remain unimpaired.
It withstands freezing tests perfectly.
Clean, sharp sand may bo used In
stead of crushed Btone, or tho two may
he mixed together. It Is a matter of
taste in color and texture.
As Improvements follow each other In
rapid succession, It Is not at nil Impos
sible or Improbable that still greater
Inventions In stonemaklng may be born
Into tho world, but until such time It
must be conceded that for quality,
cheapness and general excellence, there
Is nothing In the lino of stonemaklng
thnt can surpass llthollte. Uriah Cutn

April dividend disbursements in New Yoik are
$19,114,532; for March the. ucrc $29,903,5(11.
Ther is a wide difference in the character of
distribution In the tno month. 1'or example,
as tho New York Times points out, in March
the Standard Oil company and tho United States
Steel corporation paid out .inoro thjn two-thirds
of tho total amount disbursed in that month. In
April, lioncer, the distribution "111 be more
eienly divided, the largest dividend declaration
bcimr $2,075,fi2'i by tho Continental Tobacco
company on Its to claws of stocks. Next In
order are the following: The American Telegripli
and Telephone, $1,724,200; American Sugjr lie
fining compiny, $1,545,101; Western Union Tele
giaph, ?l,21fl,75U; United States Leather, pre
ferred, 0931,235, and American Smelting and lie
fining, preferred, $S73,OO0. Comparing Apiil this
jear with last, it is found that the grand total
falls off about $2,500,000. However, the fact mutt
be taken into consideration that last .sear the
Amalgamated and Anaronda Copper companies
paid out $4,900,000 in dividends, while this jear
both companies arc lacking because of tho post
ponement of tho disidend day on .Amalgamated
and the failure of the Anaconda directors to ob
tain a quorum. In the case of the Continental
Tobacco dividends, that on the common goes to
tho treasury of tho company, which owns prac
tically all of such stock. The American divi
dends arc not payable until Hay 1. The divi
dends paid so far this year, by months, follow:
February '.. 17,450,722
Grand total if01,2S5,000
An expert in railroad accounting brings out
some very striking facts in connection with the
Pennsylvania Hallroad company. The present
capital liabilities of the Pennsylvania are under
$300,000,000. If all the present outstanding re
curitloa of all kinds of the vailout corporations
owned, operated and controlled by the Fcnn'ylva
nU were retired and a new issue of stock ex
changed therefor, with a par value of $1,000,000,
000, the company could piy 6 per cent, dividends
theicon and have a nirpliis of about $5,000,000
left. The corporation has, however, in its treas
ury. In addition to the securities covering the
properties included above, stocks and bonds of
other corporations whoso earnings are not in
cluded, such as the Ilaltimorc and Ohio, the
Chesapeake and Ohio, tho Norfolk and Western,
etc. The Pennsjlvania received on tin's class of
investment not less than $1,7S0,050 last jear.
This makes the apparent actual gross income not
less than $2QO,il2,0J7, and the available net, $00,
090,550. The insular division of the War department has
prepared a statement showing, in comparative
form, the commerce of the island of Cuba, for
the ten months ended October 31, 1001, and
1000. The total value of merchandise imported
during the ten montlis ending October 31, 1901,
was $54,040,227, against fC3,140,10D for the cor
re.iponding .period of 1900, and the exports of
incichflndiHe during the ten inonthi ended Octo
ber 31, 1001, amounted to $10,045,400, against
$41,321,231 for the same period of 1000. Tliec
figures sliovv a comparatively slight difference in
the imports, but an increase of 3(1 per cent, in
the exports. The value of tiicichandlsu Cuming
from the United States for the ten months ended
October 31, 1001, was $2J,0U4,tl31, a dctrcae of
Mtll,347 a compared tilth the corresponding pel
iod of 1000, while the expoits for the period of
1001 amounted to, $13,051,314, an incicase of $11,
335,710 over 1800.
Indications strongly point lo a speedy clleon
timunce of the deadlock in Wall street. Satur
day's bank statement was the bct one In over
two months, the earnings reported continue to
excel past high-water maiks. It begins to look
as if the market would kooii get out of the rut;
preponderance of factors favor bullish operations.
Crops do not cut the figure they used to in rail
way earnings; we had a poor winter wheat crop
in 1899 and u failure of corn crop In 1901, without
any setback to business or falling off In earnings.
In fact, railway earnings on top of bid harvest
each time actually Increased, which accounts for
the determined manner in which holders keep
their stocks. Tho outlook for Apiil is for a
better market. Ilaiglit It Frcesc.
The heaviness of the coal flocks in the fate of
the postponement for a month of the threatened
anthracite strike (with all the hlgns pointing to
a final aud peaceful settlement of the matter) Is
said by the New Yoik Times to l due to on
effort on the part of insiders to check speculative
activity in the issues at this time, until tho
banks shall hare put thtmsclves in more satis
factory position as regards their rescrvo ac
counts. Tho ltailvvay and Englnerilng llevlevv sajs;
"All recent ndvices from iron and steel manu
facturing and distributing centers Indicate that
tho vigorous conditions and tho advancing ten
dency In prices still continue."
The National Arphalt securities protective
couunittee is at work on a plan of reorganization
for tho company, and its presentation aud con
sideration Is legarded as next step in tho pro
ceedings. The Pennsylvania railroad will soon place un
order with the Allison Manufacturing company
for 1,000 lilgli side steel gondola cars, 100,000
pound capacity, for the lines west of HtUburg,
Tho Standard Oil company is reported to have
bought the J. M. UutTey Petroleuin company,
which controls the leading oil wells of Texas.
Stockholder of the Kc) stono Watch Case com
pany have voted to increase the capital stock of
the company from $3,taX,000 to $1,400,000.
Tito Chicago board of trade memberships sold
on Saturday at $3,000 net to the buyer. Thin is
a decline ol $750 from tho top price.
Gross earnings of the Mar Four for February
decreased $48,728 and ntt $70,200, compared with

Make Them Very 'Wealthy, and It
Is the Greatest Becent Find in the
Mining World A Town Is Being
Laid Out About the Mine Size of
the Vein Not Yet Determined.
Tho last Irsuo of tho Archbald Citizen
contained the following: ,
"A few weeks ago tho Citizen told of
the rumors that reached hero concern
ing the good fortune of Peter Scanlon,
a former Archbald boy, who went West
tewnty-four years ago. Further con
firmation of tho truth of these rumors
was affoteled this week, when Mr. Scan
Ion's brother, John J. Scanlon, of Main
street, received a copy of the Arlzon
Ttango News, a paper printed In Wil
cox, Arizona, containing an account of
Mr. Scnnlon's lucky discovery In an old
mine. From this It would appear that
Mr. Scanlon Is likely to become very
wealthy, a consummation which will
give delight to all his acquaintances In
this town, where ho Is well known. '
"The Itange News, of February 21st,
In speaking of Mr. Scanlon's discovery,
" 'Wilcox and vicinity arc wild with
excitement over the most phenomenal
mining strike ever recorded In the his
tory of mining in these parts and pos
sibly in the world. Tho strike is lo
cated about ten miles east of Wilcox, In
the Dos Cabezas mountains, in what Is
known as the Casey group of copper
" 'Two months ago P. F. Scanlon, T.
F. Nlland and J. P. Kraft secured a
bond and lease on this group for the
sum of SSTi.OOO and set about to do the
assessment work, which was one of the
conditions of the bond. They started
on an old tunnel and drove It a few
feet, when they discovered ore stains on
the north wall. Believing1 that they
were close to the ore body, they com
menced to prospect the surface and
discovered Indications which led them
to believe that the ore body was close
to the burface, about 200 feet to the
north. Accordingly, they put in a few
shots nnd soon encountered ore. After
stripping the ground for a distance,
they discovered the foot-wall and be
gan sinking a shaft toward it. They
sunk a distance of fifty feet In solid ore,
in which there is hardly a pound of
NOTHING BUT COPPER.
" 'At tho depth of fifty feet, finding no
bottom to the .ore body, they started to
drift ahead to see if they could dls
ered the hanging wall. They are nlso
about twenty feet In the ore body in
that direction, without having discov
ered the hanging will. They are also
drifting along the foot wall In both a
northerly and southerly direction to as
certain, if possible, any break in the
ore, but so far none has appeared. The
size and dimensions of the ore body are,
at this writing, entirely unknown, but
the cropping of this enormous deposit
can be traced for miles over the sur
rounding country. Scanlon and his part
ners have now nine claims and nine
mill sites, and have also laid out a
town site nearby the mine on the foot
" 'Mr. Scanlon is a typical miner of
the old school. He came to Colorado
from Pennsylvania In 1878, settling In
Leadvllle, and has followed mining ever
since. He Is well known among the
old-time miners and mining men who
operated in Colorado camps in the lat
ter part of the seventies and in the
early part of the eighties. He Is a
man of striking appearance, standing
about six feet three In height, broad
shouldered, broad-chested. His face Is
scarred from many an encounter with
falling rock and other accidents inci
dental to' the miner's life. Ills manner
Is quiet and cordial, his features are
legular, indicating intelligence and
force of chaiacter. He Is a splendid
miner and has demonstrated what in
telligence and pluck can accomplish In
OTHER T.UCKY ONES.
" 'His partners, Messrs. Kraft and
Nlland, are young men from the same
.state. They are well educated, gentle
manly fellows, well drilled In the school
of hard labor and economy. In the
camp, all Is activity. The three part
neds work harder than any of the men
lu their employ. Their sudden emerg
ing from mediocre circumstances to a
knowledge that they possess unbounded
wealth and from obpqurlty into promi
nence has not in the least turned their

tho new Htrlke, and Scanlon and his
partners are dally approached by them
on the subject of selling their mine. So
far, they have remained obdurate, re
fusing to sell or set any prlea until
they have at least determined in a more
satisfactory "manner the extent of the

been visited a number of times by

turned It down and Scanlon and his
partners have again demonstrated that
It Is the practical miner who discov

is associated with Mr. Scanlon, lived
In Scranton before ho went west and
the other members of his family are
