| At a recent board of trade meeting
| the matter of commercializing coal tar
was brought up. Dyestuff is produced
| from just such tar as could be manu-
factured in great quantities there.
The tar is a thick, black, heavy
liquid obtained by distillation of bi-
tuminous coal in the manufacture of
illuminating gas, and is used for print-
ers’ ink, black varnish, and other
things. It is a complex medium from
which many substances have ‘been ob-
tained, especially hydrocarboms of the
benzine aniline phenol, napthaline and
anthracene, which are respectively
typical of the dyestuffs formerly sup-
plied to the United States iby Ger-
many. :
Attention was called to the many
products to be derived from the coal
tar and it was pointed out that im-
mense' deposits of coal, said #o be in-
ferior for the markets as steam coal,
lie in the hills surrounding Boswell.
It is not at all unlikely that a big
plant for the distillation of coal tar
will be established in that town.
There are a number of ideal locations
and with improved shipping facilities
the commercialization of coal tar
should become one of the communities
most important industries.
The lorge barn on the farm of Mil-
ton Schrock, near Rockwood, with
"all its contents, was destroyed by fire
on Wednesday of last week. The in-
surance carried was $1,000, which, it
is reported, will not more than cov-
er one-third of the loss. With Har-
rison Bittner’s hay baler, a number
of men were engaged in baling hay,
and it was while they were at dinner
that the fire occured. The flames
had gained such headway that the
men were unable to save much prop-
erty. Included in the loss were the
baler, 700 bushels of oats, several
hundred bushels of wheat, in short,
the season’s crops. It is not known
how the fire started.
