“The following, taken from the Col- |
liery Engineer, published at Scranton, |
- Pa., may be of much interest to the
mining class of this section.
“Every mine examiner's report we
examine blames the primary cause of
nearly all accidents on the carelessness
"nf the victim or one of the victims.
‘Js not this carelessness largely dae
to lack of discipline in the mine? We
believe it is. The securing of the
proper discipline necessary to prevent
careiessness lies with the mine in-
spectors and mine superintendents. It
is ap undisputed truth that the disci-
pline must be enforcad with the great-
‘est rigor. where the risk to life and
property is the greatest. In no in-
- dustry is there more risk of accident
through lack of discipline than in min-
ing, and in no ‘indastry is there sach a
lack of discipline. This lack of dlisci-
pline is largely due to the fact that
the men employed in the mines work
in groups of two or three, and it is
impossible for the foreman to keep his
- eye on them at all times. In fact, as a
rule, sees them but once day. There-
fore the necessity of inforcing disci-
pline by severe measures must be re- |
sorted to if it is to be secured at all.
“The mine laws and the local rules
are all framed to make the occupation |
of the miner as safe as possible. If
they are mot inforced to the letter they |
are useless. Every infraction of them :
. should be punished either by imprison-
meut or peremptory discharge or both. |
“There are two great factors that
work against good discipline in mines
—ignorance and sentiment. Ignorance |
on the part of many enployes and
sentiment on the part of the mine in-
spector, mine officials, and officers of
the courts. The effects of ignorance |
can be counteracted by the officials
ptliishing every breach of the law or
rules. A man once punished for a fanlt
of ignorance is not likely to repeat it. If
every man in the mine knows that
every breach of a ruleor law will be’
punished, even if no accident results

ing feed well and train properly, and
you will have a good cow.
There is no better crop for winter
feeding of sheep than oate and peas
mixed. It is very nutritious, and is
eaten with avidity by the sheep.
The exact temperature of loosening
the hair from the skin of a pig at butch-
‘ering is 180. The pig should remain a
‘full minute in the water at this temper-
atare to give time for the hair to be
loosened. :
Where hens are allowed to roam
over the barnyard and fields they pick
up many waste substances, even in
winter, but in cold weather they should |
have at least one pint of shelled corn
twice a day for every 12 hens.
In feeding grain to sheep feed a
small quantity often.
want. This will have much to do with
the prevention of scratches. The
farmer who raises his own sheep will
find it profitable to markét them as soon
as possible,
If a horse balks, do not whip him,
‘but, let him stop and think it over.
After a little reflection and a few tosses
of the head he will often start of his
‘volition. Talk to him kindly, pet him,
lcosen a strap or buckle, and he may
forget his obstinate spell. An apple or
a bunch of grass from the roadside
may win him.
The narrow dimensions of many’
stalls are a positive eruelty to the horse.
They are built too narrow to enable
‘him to extend his limbs ‘when con-
venient. He is compelled, when in a
recambent position, to double up his
limbs under him, and his legs are thus
kept cramped, when they should be
completely at rest. Five feet is nar-
row enough for single stalls.
The manure of some animals is richer
than that from others. For instance,
manure from the hog is twice as val-
unable as that from the cow, because it
is more concentrated, but the cost is
in proportion to the food used and.
‘ the amount digested. A ton of grain
or coitonseed meal can only produce a
certain amount of manure, no matter to
which kind of animal it may be fed,
' and while some animals produce mau-
nure of less. value than others, yet
they produce more of it, and the loss
in one direction is a gain in another.
All value of manure depends upon the
"food on which the animals are fod.
All through winter especially, the
heaviest feed of every kind of farm
stock should be at night. Enough
. should be given at each meal, but in
‘ the evening it may be of richer quality
and more tempting to the appetite.
| This is needed in cold weather to keep
the animal warm, as the process of di-
| gestion is a slow combustion of food
which fornishes heat for ae body
while it provides nourishment for the
blood. As the process of digestion
goes on with less interruption during
‘sleep » heavy meal at night is less
likely to injure the stomach than if
| given at any other time. Besides, un-
Jess a farmer feeds after dark at night
‘and a good while befope daylight in the
| morning the interval between feeding |
‘is longer through the night than
through the short days of our Northern
‘winters. A better feed at night is,
therefore, neeeded om this account. :

gets about the hundreds of other fam- |
ilies the lives of whose fathers were
placed in jeopardy by the culprit.
“Therefore the enforcement of disci-
pline must in a great measure come
from the mine officials, and as the
only punishment, they can inflict is dis-
charge, prompt discharge should be
the penalty for every violation of law
or rules.”

Munchine Mining at Adrian.
“The machines are spoiling the min-
ing business at Adrian,’’ said an oid
miner yesterday. ‘There are about
twenty iron men np there, and they
probably average iifty tons of coal a
day each. They have but cone range
of entries, instead of two, as formerly,
and they keep blasting all day, and the
: mines are constantly filled with smoke.
The machines are bad for the miners,
and they are not altogether a good
thing for the company, because they
do not mine close enough to the bot
tom. In many places there is as high |
as two feet of good coai on the bottom,
and I am sure it will average eight
inches all over. One inch of coal dis-
tributed over an acre makes a hundred.
tons, and this wonid be a loss of $00
tons to the acre in coal. Of course the
company gets its coal out cheaper, but
the coal is not so nice more slack
and there is this loss by not getting to
. the bottom. And the smoke is some-
thing terrible. Mining under these
conditions is not pleasant,” concluded
the digger of dusky dimonds. “It is
bad enough to compete with the foreign
yet.” —Punxsutawney Spirit.
