Kepiilillrun Nominee For Congress
Perhaps the best introduction
Jlr. Ainey to tho Republican voters
is tho following taken from his home
paper p.ibllshed before Ills nomina
tion: It wan surprising with what abso
lute unanimity men from a'll parts of
the county and even in adjoining
counties centered their views as to
their ideal for that position, upon
ono name. The store, the office,
the public place where tho people
were accustomed to gather in
groups in different portions of the
county expressed opinion, unitedly
and overwhelmingly in favor of W.
D. B. Alnoy as their choice. One by
which at this time can be given of
one people from all these different
sections have sought out Mr. Ainey
and i-rred him to be their candidate
until. n' ni'al though it may seem,
it is novortho'ess true, that this
time t: - ofn." ha., wight the man.
.Mr Alno- is a brilliant and liard
workln lawyer, a student of men
and affairs, a speaker of more than
ordinary power, a man who has
always been identified with the

To the Republicans ot Wayne Co.:
I take this means of announcing
myself as a candidate for the nomi
nation of Prothonotary at tho pri
maries, Sept, 30, 1911.
To most of you I am known per
sonally. During my seventeen years
of service as a clerk In the Hones
dale postofflce my efforts have been
to perform my duties faithfully and
courteously to the patrons of the of
fice and the public generally.
To the voters with whom 1 am not
personally acquainted I would say
that, since a severe Injury sustain
ed by my father a few years before
his accidental death when I was six
teen years old I have tried to make
an honest living. My birthplace was
in Texas township, district No. 4,
Wayne county.- My school days
wero limited to tho district school
and the Honesdaie High school, As
a boy of eleven years I spent my
summers slate picking on tho Dela
ware & Hudson dock and attended
school during the winter, I also
spent soveral summers working on a
farm In Cherry Ridge.
After school I entered tho office
of the Jlonesdalo Iron Works, known
now as the Guerney Electric Elevator
Co., where I stayed a number of
years and later entered the Hones-
dale postofflce serving two years un
der 'William P. Brlggs. I then "went
to the Carbondale Lumber company
as a uooKKeepor, remaining with
them until the apointment as post
master of Miss Mary E. Gerety, who
later became the wife of Hon. C. A.
McCarty. In Juno, 189,0, I returned
to the Honesdaie postofflce where I

INCREASED PRODUCTION OF AX-TIIRACITE.
Pennsylvania's Output in 1010 Larg
est in History With Ono Excep
tion. Except that of the " boom " year,
1907, the production of anthracite In
Pennsylvania in 1910 was tho larg
est in the history of tho Industry,
according to E. W. Parker, coal sta
tistician of the United States Geo
logical Survey. The quantity pro
duced In 1910 was 75,433,346 long
tons, an increase over 1909 of 3,
058,997 long tons, the value Increas
ing from 1149,415,847 In 1909 to
1160,275,302 in 1910. The produc
tion in 1910 was within almost ex
actly 1,0.00,000 long tons of the max
imum record for 1907, when the
output amounted to 76,432,421
long tons. The value of the pro
duct in 1907 exceeded that of 1910
by $3,308,754. The average price
per ton at the mines in 1910 was
52.12, against $2.06 in 1900, ?2.13
in 1908, and $2.14 in 1907.
Practical Coul Conservation.
Through the recent invention,
says Jlr. Parkor, of grates and fur
naces adapted to tho use of small
sizes of anthracite, and owing to the
higher prices of the prepared sizes,
the percentage of waste has been
reduced to a minimum. "Buck
wheat," "rice," "barley," and even
culm are now important Bteam-rais-Ing
fuels, particularly in hotels,
apartment houses, and large office
buildings in the cities of the East,
where smoke-inhlbltlng ordinances
are in force. An object lesson in
practical conservation is here fur
nished and to the credit of the
operators in the anthracite region
be it said that It was put into effect
a number of years 'before the agita
tion over the conservation of natur
al resources began. Not only a,re
tho small sizes produced in the pres
ent mining operations sold and uti
lized, but the unsightly culm banks
which blotted the landscape in the
anthracite region are fast disap
pearing as the usable coal Is being
recovered from them by washeries.
Of the total production in 1910,
1,184,629 tons were recovered from
the old culm banks, and 91,833 tons
wero recovered by dredges from the
bed of Susquehanna Riven.
The anthracite-producing Indus
try was without any marked feat
ures during the year. The operators
and miners had in 1909 renewed
by mutual agreement for a third
term of three years tho awards of
the Anthracite Commission that set
tled tho great strike of 1902, and
while thore were a few temporary
shut-downs because of labor difficul
ties, there was only one in which the
Idleness extended over 12 days, and
most of them were from one day to
one week. The board of concilia
tion created by the Anthracite Com
mission, consisting of six members,
three representing the operators and
three representing the miners, has
done exemplary service In bringing
the employers and employees into
harmonious relations and has de
monstrated the wisdom and practica
bility of conciliatory methods of
settling labor disputes.
Utilizing tho Consumers' Cellars.
The policy adopted several years
ago by the operators, of allowing
discounts from the circular prices
for coal purchased in tho spring and
early summer months, continues to
work satisfactorily. The discounts
allowed on domestic sizes are 50
cents a ton in April, 40 cents a ton
in May, 30 cents In June, 20 cents In
Tuly, and 10 cents in August, the
circular prices being restored in
September. The inducements thus
offered to make the cellars of con
sumers tho storage places for the
winter supplies of fuel has had a
notably steadying influence on the
trade and gives steady employment
to the miners throughout the year,
against the conditions of rush work
in winter and much Idleness in sum
mer prevailing before the rule was
put Into effect.
Fatalities in tho Mines.
Accrding to a statement made to
the United States Bureau of Mines
by Mr. James E. Roderick, chief of
the department of mines of Pennsyl
vania, there were 601 fatal and 1,
050 non-fatal accidents in the an
thracite mines in 1910. This was
an increase of 34 In tho number of
fatal accidents and of 15 In the
number of men injured as compared
with 1909, when 567 men were kill
ed and 1,035 injured. Ab the pro
duction In 1910 amounted to 75,
433,246 long tons, the quantity of
coal mined for each life lost was
125,513 long tons against 126,044
long tons in 1900. The death rate
per thousand employees In 1900
was 3.55, against 3.31 in 1909.

NEW HAY FEViJrrTRKATMENT
Sufferers from hay fever are like
ly to be struck pleasantly by the pro
posal to treat their ailment by sit
ting for half an hour or bo in a wine
cellar. But the wine, it seems, has
nothing to do with the case; it Is
the frost that Is doponded upon, By
the way, has the 'effect of an unchlll-
od cellar ever been tested? The
theory of tho New York hotel mana
ger, put into practice lately with re
sults said to be satisfactory, is that
since the malady disappears with the
first frost, it Is well to try a little
artificial frost. This, of course,
rests upon the pollen theory. It is
open to those who attribute hay
fover to tne strong sunlight of sum
mer to prove that the same results
may be obtained by darkness with
out tho frost. Maj. Woodruff cites
a Massachusetts doctor who has
used smoked glasses successfully lr.
his own case and with patients.
There seem to bo no statistics show
ing the proportion of blonds among
sufferers from hay fever. Maj.
Woodruff's view, based only on per
sonal observation, is that " it seems
to be more ' prevalent among blonds
who are living In countries lighter
than their ancestral home." But
there aro as many theories on the
subject as there used to be in regard
to malaria, and there are few sub
jects that are discussed with such
Intensity of opinion. Springfield
