FRIDAY EVENT NO, MAY 28, 1915, STEEL IHILLSNQW ALARMED OVER ITALY QOINE TO WAR Possibility of Shortage of Common La bor Causes Much Concern—lron Production in Nearby Districts, Slightly Increasing New York. May 28.—"The Iron Age" says tho rato of production at the largest steel plants has been main tained, and in some oases, particularly in the Pittsburgh and nearby valley dis tricts, slightly increased. On the sell ing side some of the heavier lines show more activity, while lighter prod ucts are quiet. Buying for domestic use is marked by caution, in view of : the issues raised with Geimany, but there is no uneasiness. The exodus of Italian workers to go to war is causiug some concern, and there is more than a possibility of an actual shortage of common labor in some parts of the iron industry. The Counellsville coke region will be af fected and already a short supply of labor is reported iu the West Virginia coal tields. After some weeks of small business in rails, several orders have come out together—2s,ooo tons for the South ern Pacific placed at Knsley, 15,500 tons for the Lake Shore, 8,000 tons for the Chicago Alton and 4,000 tons l'or the Chesapeake district. The Chesa peake & Ohio's total purchases are about 15,000 tons. If the Pennsylva nia order comes as expected, the week will be the largest in months for rails. The developments in the bar market are interesting. The mills are getting behii in .deliveries, due to the tilling up of capacity by shrapnel bar orders, particularly 2-inch rounds and larger. In the Central West a new inquiry is for 45,000 tons of 1 1-16-inch rounds for ritle barrels and at Pittsburgh a company that has a large contract for ride barrels is negotiating for bars. At the same ti*iu> the large agricul tural implement inaßers are slow to con tract for their bar supply, seemingly awaiting further assurance concerning crops and foreign situation. No issue is being made of the 1.20 c price on such contracts, as the bar market has been gradually stiffening with the plac ing of so much war tonnage. Iron bars are firmer, but in hard bars for rein forcing there _is irregularity, sales be ing made at 1.05 c, Pittsbugh. The ascent of spelter above 18 cents, or to more than twice the highest price reached in any previous year, has caused a fresh flurry in galvanized sheets. Some makers have advanced their price to 4c for No. 28 and, while the largest interest still quotes 3.60 c, this price is only for prompt delivery end to regular customers. The soaring of spelter has set users of brass as well as of galvanized sheets on tbe hunt for substitutes. Mill which are not quoting on gal vanized sheets are going more vigor ously after business in black sheets and 1.70e, Pittsburgh, for No. 2S sheets can still be done. In special sheets for au tomobiles no such weakness has ap peared. Plate mills have fared better in ton nage, due to the good car contracts of the past two weeks, but the car com panies were able to buy at I.loc, Pitts burgh. Recent buying for three addi tional vessels placed with eastern ship yards also brought out low prices. Boi ler plate demand has increased in the Central West. Plate manufacturers are keenly in terested in .lie inquiries from foreign countries with a view to plaicng mer chant vessel work here. Foreign yards are full of naval work and the outlook is for full employment of American shipbuilders for the pext three years. FIND BONES AFTER <lll YEARS Skeletons of Men Killed in Mine in j 184« Unearthed Scranton, Pa., May 28.—Breaking through the rock walls which separate the workings of the Delaware and Hud son No. 1 colliery at Carbondale from the old drift in which anthracite coal j was first mined in this country, ves- | terday, Evan Williams, a miner, found | the skeleton of a man. It was in a I sitting position against the face of the j coal measures and still wore miner's shoes. Around the chamber were the' bones of a number of other men. It was determined 'by investigating I the mine records that the bones were ! those of the eight men who were en tombed oy a fall of rock in the old drift January 12, 1846.

He was F ! j'jl .nM /V a signer of both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States, and his wisdom made die latter a possi- |Jf Bi /\ bility. The great Lotd Chatham pronounced him not only an honor to the Anglo-Saxon people, but to human nature. In every j. § f SI A \ Capitol of Europe he was a welcome guest, and he it was who induced France to lend us ships, men and money during the dark- S *| V \ est days of the Revolution. Upon his death Congress entered a general mourning of a month. In France it was decreed that all members Ip i iijP \ of the national as:emHy should wear mourning for three days. So long as Americans treasure the Republic and Personal Liberty as the |*|;; j&V noblest of all human blessings, the fame of Franklin can never perish. Rasonally he wis possessed of robust health; he was a well-shaped man, ofawisebut merry nature; he had the head of a Greek philosopher, whilehis grace,his noble bearing and winning personality made him a conspicuous figure in any assemblage cf great men He was a moderate user all his lifetime of Old Madeira and barley-malt brews. It is S|||'!|' j; ||jj|E' ; JEE I safe to say tliat he toasted the New Republic with every great man of Europe and America.

L. i Crowley, of the Cecil district, killed the monster alligator in Hutchinson's •pond a few days ago. The gator had been a familiar figure there for the last quarter of a century, but all ef- ! forts to kill him had proved futile, he | being a sly old fellow and managing l to get to his cave.

Grauel Mahogany and Rosewood I The beauty of mahogany and rose | wood lies in the rich color and tine grain i of the woods and this is not enhanced ; by carving or by elaborate decorations. ; Therefore beauty of outline and perfec -1 tion in finish is the result furniture manufacturers strive for when working in these materials. Rosewood is from a tree called by West Indians, Amyris; it does not at tain the great size of the mahogany anil j its color is not red but a dark, richly veined brown. To keep furniture made from these woods in condition it is sufficient, to rub them gently with a soft cloth when j they need dusting. The beauty of these wonderful woods is their hardness which makes them so durable. Naturally a hard wood, they | are especially seasoned before they are | used and some factories keep choice j pieces of them for years in the process .of seasoning. It' a rosewood or mahog any piece becomes scratched, scorched I or defaced, it can be restored bv a | cabinet-maker to its original beauty. This is not always the case with ve ! neered furniture. Dampness, heat or i much jarrying will often raise the | veneer and it cannot always be re | placed. A delicate Colonial tilt-table of rose | wood veneer was used for serving tea upon until the veneer commenced to ! blister and peel. It was sent to a fur -1 uiture restore shop. Week after week i went by but it was not 'returned and i the owner called on the workman, who ; showed her the process of restoring and said he had been compelled to wait until r • —— x Better Than j' Baying R.

Mo had matched it in the ease of an old mclodian, a beauty of itself, and was painstakingly removing the veneer from the one old piece and transferring it to the other. This explains, in part, why it is so expensive to have old treasures renewed by professionals. If you admire mahogany and rose wood pieces as they So well deserve, and have some of this furniture to re store, a very good way to do this is to follow the example of the Shackletons; they employed the most expert work man they could hear of to restore and polish some of their "finds" and then they stayed by the workman and took notes with eyes and ears and after a few days they were able to do the work themselves.
