The llawley Mine Fire
Ktlll "On the Job."
The fire in the old cinder heap
that comprises a part of the Erie
yard is still burning. This makes a
two months' continuous known rec
ord, but how long the fires were
smouldering before their discovery
.can only be conjectured. After the
'fly lineo flint frtl O HtTIO W1Q llSOfl
was withdrawn it was supposed that
the fire was practically out; but It
became necessary once more to di
rect water Into the ditch which Is
now done from the east side. The
lire is very intense and the cinders
are burning so that they crumble
llko powder.
The Conductors Arc Xow
Exchanging Places on E. & W. V.
For the past few days regular
patrons of the E. & W. V. passenger,
trains have had a splendid oppor
tunity of getting acquainted with
Conductors Connolly and Johnson.
Generally about this time, of year
regular conductor A. C. Snyder takes
his vacation and spends a week or
two catching fish from Wayne county
lakes. Ho has been absent from his
train, but, alas! has not been Ashing.
Conductor Snyder has been on the
sick list, and his train has been cap
tained by Conductor Connelly, of
Avoca, while Conductor Johnson has
been directing the fortunes of the
Summer special. Conductor Snyder
is getting well, however, and will
soon be at his post. In the mean
time regular patrons are getting ac
quainted with the new voices that
chant In their ears, "tiekots, please!"

Improvements at Eric Station
Are Still Progressing.
Work is progressing on the im

take place on or about the first Mon

Sonic Places Where Hiiwleyitcs
Catch Lots of Fresh Fish.
There are probably more expert
fishermen in Hawley, that is more
fishermen who catch fish, than can
be found In any town of its size In
tho State.

as good to eat when properly fried

On Labor Day there were no less
than 150 people fishing on the lake

Peck's pond is still the Mecca for
fishermen; but the pond has been so

Guilty? Or Xot Guilty?
It is now openly charged by some
of the politicians of Hawley that the
real battle is between a combination
of the Democrats and Republicans
against the Washington party. Inas
much as the only Washington party
candidate is on all the three tickets,
everybody cannot see just where the
accusation is pertinent. However,
If somebody is guilty, "let no guilty
man escape." Now, then, guilty, or
not guilty? 'Fess right up, and be

Desirable to Manage Them Sepa
rate From Other Fowls.
Plan Given for the Construction of
Suitable House to Accommodate
Ten Hens and Male Coop
May Be Enlarged. -
The boy who has fowls of his own
will want to manage them so as to
keep them separate from tho other
poultry on the farm. The following
plan, which ts arranged to accom
modate ten or twelve bens and a male,
has been founcS very satisfactory. It
may be enlarged for a greater number,
always remembering that each addi
tional fowl means, from flvo to eight
square feet more of floor space.
Tho coop In question Is live feet
wldo and twelve fet long, giving a
floor space of sixty square feci flvo
or six square feet per hen. It Is six
feet high at the front,, and four feet
at the back, and is built from cheap
lumber, and covered with- tarred roof
ing. On most farms there are odds
,and ends of boards enough- to pu'.
A Splendid Specimen.
iup such a coop, except for the roof
:lng. As no glass is used, tho only
additional ex pens will be for nailer
.hinges, a few yards of cheap cotton
domestic, and a little poultry net
The door into tho coop is put at one-
end of the front wn!. It is not closed -
with a solid door, but with a frame!
covered with wlroi netting, having a
curtain of muslin as tho inside for
use In cold weathers The upper half '
of tho remaining part of the front la
Also left open and covered with net
ting, with an insider muslin curtain.
In warm weather these curtains are
'kept rolled up, but In cold weather
they are let down over the openings.
They should be largo enough to cover.
-them well, and have weights at tho-
Donom to hold them In place. If a.
lien is run in, and a. rather heavy Blat.
thrust through the casing thus formed,
they will stay in place very welL
The only other openings In the coopi
tare four llttlo square'..- doorways, eight'
by ten Inches In size.. If the hens are.
Tery largo, these may. be made some
what larger each way, Ono of thcsoi
little doors should ba in each end, and
ono in each lower corner of tho bade
wall. They nro cloeed with a sliding
panel, set in a little framo, which;
can be raised or lowered by a wire or
stout cord. Only one- is, of course, tor
be used at a time.
In tho center of the buck wall, two-'
feet above tho floor;, fasten ( frame
two feet wide and1 three feet long,
carrying two roasting poles. This
frame should be hinged to tho wait bo
It can bo raised out of tho way when,
desired. Under Iti. a foot from, the
floor, make a little platform of boarda
to catch the droppings. Do not fasten
this anywhere, as you will want to
take It up to clean it On the, front
corners of the roosting frame pat legsi
a foot long, which should rest on thlsj
dropping board when the rooet Is
lowered in plaao. Have both. Boosting,
poies me Banna neigni, noi sm bo we
frame will slant.
On the celling, directly aove tho
roost, nail strips of inch boarda so as
to make a frame tho same; size, or a
trifle larger, than the roost Itself. To
this tack strips of burlap sackingne
enough tc- reach the floor, and 'wid
enough to completely surround the
coop when they are dropped in pinto.
At the. lower edges put slats to bjeep
them In place, as on the other cur
tains. On cold nights this makes a
Bnug, and yet not stutfy, Bleeping place
for the biddies. In the warmer parts
of the country this inside curtain
will not bo needed, but in tho colder
states it will give ample protection
through the winter. It should bo
rolled up during the day.
The nest boxes two are plenty
should be placed in the darkest part
of the coop. This will be against the
front wall, In the corner farthest
from tho outer door. A box three
feet long and a foot deep, with parti
tion In the middle, and doors cut in
the ends, makes a good nest when
turned bottom side np over a nico
deep bed of clean straw. 1

Erkr Brothers, nnd
Oliio.Silngo- Cutters.
ITH the corn- growing rank
and tall In the fields of Old
-Wayne county, the ma
jority of farmers aro think
ing about silos, ensilage
tsnd' ensilage cutters. And that line
ot thought leads right up to where
die Erk Brothers hardware store
have their Innings.
Erk Brothers are more than deal
ers in hardware for they are practi
cal farmers. Consequently they
know tho needs of farmers, and they
represent and sell the best machin
ery and farm appliances that are
manufactured. For instance, take
Silage Cutters: They sell the famous
"Ohio" Cutters, and can give a good
and valid reason for every claim
made as to their superiority. Here
are- some reasons why the "Ohio"
Cutters aro the very best:
Dependability. The "Ohio" will
fill your silo at the rato of a ton in
two minutes, tho corn being cut in
half-Inch lengths, and will keep the
pace 'and maintain the strain hour
after hour and day after day.
Bull-Dog Grip Tho "Ohio" is so
built that material to bo cut cannot
wind around the lower roll and clog
or break tho machine. When once
started the material has to go
Durability. The "Ohio" people
have been building machines for
nearly 60 years. They have found
all the weak places, and the wek
places have all been eliminated.
Castings. "Ohio" castings aro all
heavy and of hlgh-slllcon iron.
Foundation. Extra heavy ot
thoroughly seasoned hard mapte,
mortised, tenoned, double-pinned and
well braced with iron rod and nut
reinforcement through front.
Safety. The tragedies that occur
at silo filling time aro cut out if you
use the "Ohio." They are so eternally
rigid that no lives or limbs aro over
Phone or write Erk Brothers to
send you a little pamphlet, "Silo
Filler Logic." It is free, and they
will gladly mall It to you. What is
better yet, call at their store and let
them explain a lot of things about
silos, ensilage and sllo-fllling ma
chinery that very farmer ought to
know. 70 W
