NEW YORK'S WONDERS.
The Biggest, Noisiest, Fastest thing
That Helps Make Night
NEW YOKKEKS WHO DON'T KNOW ENG
LISH FROM CHINESE.
If you ever chance to visit New York
and are outdoors late at night, when
the streets are almost empty and quiet
and you suddenly hear an ear-splitting
hair-lifting, soul-chilling wail, a swell
ing and diminishing howl, that doesn't
stop for a second and always makes
the justly celebrated "Kebel Yell"
seem a gentle lullaby, don't waste time
in wondering whether it is Gabriel's
trump ar perhaps Satan calling in his
children, most of whom get to New
York when they can, and especially
after dark. The noise will be that of
the alarm-siren attached to the wagon
which hurries some hundreds of feet of
hose to the scene of any fire that is to
be treated by the new high-pressure
service. The siren must sound its alarm
loudly and steadily, for when the
streets are clear of the daylight tangle
of trucks, carriages, autos, etc., the big
horseless hose-wagon can and does
make faster progress than most torpe
Just before you begin to stop your
ears to keep the increasing racket from
getting into them and lifting the top of
your head off, you discover that the
siren had an accompanist—a great
gong, that produces enough clanging
to supply a hundred trolley cars, could
the noise be divided up for distribution
among them. It will be of no use t«
try to run away from the composite
din unless you are wearing seven
league boots. Besides, the wagon is
worth seeing for its own sake. At first
view it looks like a big ocean steamer
coming up the bay, but appearances
are deceptive in the semi-darkness, for
it is not quite as long as a city building
lot is wide. The hose, which is as
great in diameter as the snakes a man
sees after a week of emptying saloons
into himself, are laid in so many fore
and-aft lengths that a circus giant
could not see across the heap, yet upon
them stands the hose crew of a dozen
men clinging to handrails and making,
the dark mass fully six feet higher, for
a stocky fireman of ordinary size isn't
sure to be equal to the demands of hoae !
under the new pressure of water; the
work requires giants in stature as well
as strength. When the wagon has j
passed you and you succeed in unglue
ing your feet from the sidewalk, you
will be sure that you haven't drawn a i
full breath in half an hour, and it re- I
ally may have been a full half minute.
The spectacle is worth looking up, as
some men do, by lounging in the vi
cinity of the hose-house night after i
night, but it is not advisable to have I
any other fellow's bunch of nerves
with you, your own will be all you can
It is a pretty serious thing to be the
biggest thing of the kind, whatever
the kind may be, unless one can get
full consolation by blowing one's own
trumpet, which New York seldom can.
Among the city bignesses most recent
ly discovered is the proportion of for
eign blood in our hundreds of thousand
of school children. More than one
third of these youngsters were foreign
born, more than two-thirds are of for
eign parentage, and nearly one-half are
of parents neither of whom can speak
English. The outlook didn't worry us
much when most of the immigration
was from Ireland and Germany, for
the Irish spoke what passed for Eng
lish, and the germans made haste to
pick up enough tenement house dialect
to make themselves understood; but
since Italians, Russians, Hungarians,
Greeks and Poles began to flock in, and
a colony larger, numerically, than
some state capitals, has been formed
solely of Syrians and other.West Asiat
ics who speak several lingos and do
most of their reading and writing in
Arabic, there is a big problem before
the school teachers. The principal en
couragement is that "Blood will tell,"
for there is a lot of good blood inside
the shabby garments of many of these
immigrants with many children and
outlandish names. The manner in
which the immigrant sections of the
tenement house districts are crowding
children into the Normal College (for
girls) and City College (for boys), in
both of which instruction is absolutely
free, but must be earned by graduation
with high marks from the public
grammar schools, is quite startling to
thoughtful observers and exasperating
»many easy-going pupils of native
rn parentage. Often a list of prize
winners at the City Collage recalls a
roster of France's noted "Foreign Le
gion," which contains names from al
most every European race but the
French. And the way those boys and
Iris with jaw-breaking names assimi
te with native-born Americans as
on as they are old enough to go into
isiness and marry is puzzling to their
d-world parents, who remind one an
her of the story of the hen which
hatched ducks. Gargoyle.
Speculating AM The
End ol The World.
WHAT SCIENTISTS THINK WILL CAUSI
GENERAL DESTRUCTION OF GLOBE
AND DEATH OK ALL LIVING
H«w the world will end is an eternal
problem, which, in the opinion of
many, is a matter for scientific inves
tigation. The terrible catastrophe in
Italy is «nly a foretaste on a small scah
of what many eminent scientists be
lieve will bethejend of thelworld. Thai
wipe all life from the globe before the
actual destruction of the earth is com
plete is the opinion of many, says Cas
sell's Saturday Journal.
The late Grant Allen firmly believed
that the world by the crust
of the earth eventually giving way be
neath the colossal weight above it; and
Abbe Dupin, one of the greatest scien
tists of France, believes that doomsday
will begin with a war that.will envelop
the greatest nations in Europe, this be
ing followed by a|plague_the like of
nating with] an earthquake_that will
practically shake the world to pieces.
H. G. Wells, whose scientific pro
phacies are well known, is, howevej, of
a different opinion. The world will
end, he declares, by its becoming en
tirely frozen over. It is a well-known
fact that every yeaifmore ice accumu
lates around the poles; in short, many
millions of tons of ice in excess of that
of the year previous about the
earth's extremities each year, and in
Mr. Wells' opinion thisjwill gradually
extend until tht whole world is frozen
over and every living thing is thus de
Several scientists are of opinion that
we shall perish by fire, and this old
world of ours with us. Nikola Tesla is
convinced that, the atmosphere of the
world is so fullyScharged with electriic
ity, the result will be a gigantic explo
sion by spontaneous combustion, when
the world will be entirely encircled with
flame which in the space of a few sec
onds will destroy all life.
Two of the world's greatest scientists
firmly aver that the end of the wojld
will be brought about by astronomical
conditions. .Take Professor Marien
berg, the noted Austrian student. In
His opinion the earth will fly from its
arbit and come in contact with one of
the other planets that may chance to |
be in a direct line. The earth, being
wmparatively small, will, of course,
.et the worst of it, and split into frag
ments at the collision. But, of course,
-irectly the world swerved from the
orbit all living things would die, and
mch an earthquake take place as would
completely put the Italian catastrophe
n the shade.
Just as interesting is the prognostica
tion of M. Camille Flammarion, one of
the greatest living scientists. After
nany years of study he has arrived at
the conclusion that the world will in
the twenty-fifth century come across
the planet Bella, which crossed our
me a few years ago. On this occasion,
lowever, a collision will take place and
Bella being infinitely greater than the
sarth, a shock may be expected within
ie calculates will be 865 times greater
;han the shock caused by the collision
oetween two trains, each traveling at
15 miles an hour.
THE FASHION WAS STARTED IS ENG
LAND BY ELIZABETH.
The practice of starching linen is at
east 400 years old. It is said to have
mginated under Queen Elizabeth. Its
nventor was a Dutchwoman, the wife
of a Mr. Gullheem, who was driver at
the royal court. Mrs. Gullheem un
lerstood so well how to improve a
small deficiency in the bust of her royal
mistress by means of stiffened collars,
frills and laces that Elizabeth over
whelmed her with favors and privileges
and finally elevated her to the rank of
.hief inspectress of the court linen. j
The fashion introduced by the queen
was, of course, soon followed by all the
women of rank. The fad for this new
"art" finally degenerated into a verit
table mania for starching ironing,
plaiting, etc. Later special "profes
sors" of the part of starching establtsh
ed themselves in London, among'
whom a Flemish woman of the name
of Dinghen van de Plasse seems to have
occupied the highest rank. Those pri
vileged to be initiated by her in the art
had to pay no less than £5 for a les
Later they began to add blue color
to the starch. Queen Elizabeth, who
was very anxious about her question
able beauty, found that the addition of
blue gave a green hue to her complex
ion. She therefore prohibited her sub
jects wearing any other than pure
white starched linen, claiming that
blue washed linen was injurious to
health. But fashion proved superior
even to "good Queen Bess." They con
tinued merrily to use blue starch,
though one woman after the other had
to go to prison for trangressing the
"blue law. "—Boston Post.

POCKET COAL DISTRICT.
During the last three or four years
considerable exploitation and develop
ment work has been done on the coal
deposits in Lee county, Va., in the vi
cinity of Pennington Gap, in what is
known as the Pocket coal district, and
as a result a large amount of valuable
information concerning the geologic
position and distribution of the various
workable coal beds in that region has
become available. In tho early sum
mer of 1908 C. A. Fisher of the U. S.
Geological Survey, made a brief exam
ination of these deposits, and he has
embodied the results of that work, to
gether with information furnished by
persons interested in the development
of the mines, in an advance chapter of
the Survey's Bulletin 341, published as
Bulletin 341-C. This report is now
ready for distribution.
The district derives its name from
the fact that it lies in a "pocket" or
topographic depression, surrounded on
three sides by high ridges. It is about
nine miles long and four or five miles
wide, and includes about 40 square
miles. Within this area there are 12
known workable coal beds and 2 more
which may possibly be workable. They
have a combination thickness of about
54 feet and occur within a stratigraphic
interval of about 2,000 feet.
Coal has been mined from small
banks in this district for many years
to supply a small local demand, but
wood has been so plentiful and so cheap
threthat the native population has had
little incentive to develop coal for do
■c fuel. The building of railroad
into the district has, howevep,led
ireased interest in the coal de
Mr. Fisher reports the results of
studies of |the physical and chemical
properties of the coals and expresses
the opinion that coke of average quali
; ty could be made from most of the
; workable beds.

Ito the government report on the golc
I and tin deposits of the southern part
of the region by L. C. Graton and Wat
deuiar Lindgren, which was published
by the United Geological Survey as
Piing in this general region dates
to the beginning of the history of
ica, for the early Spanish and
sh records contain accounts of the
discovery ef metals. The principal
mineral resource is gold. When the
early Spanish explorers came to Amer
ica they were shown by the Indians
rich nuggests and ornaments ef gold
from ihe southern Appalachian region,
some of which is supposed to have come
■,he era covered by this report.
pvniards minted gold in Georgia
in the seventeenth century. From
1825 to the present time production has
been continuous. Unfortunately, no
reliable statistics of the production are
to be had, but to judge from all availa
ble data it seems probable that the to
tal value of the gold mined has been
about $10,000,000. A considerable but
unknown proportion of this amount
has been derived from placer deposits,
but much the larger part has been won
by hard rock mining. Iron has been
mined in the southern Appalaehiana,
and within recent years the monazite
industry has attained some importance
in the Carolinas. Copper, lead, man
ganese, pynte, mica, barite, corundum,
clay, limestone, and granite have also
been found and worked. Besides these
minerals tin ores occur in this region.
The world's use of tin is steadily in
creasing and the demand for it is con
stantly growing. New deposits are dis
covered from time to time, and certain
districts already known are increasing
their output, but the production of
some of the important tin-mining re
gions of the world is declining and that
of others can not long be maintained.
The reserve stocks held in various parts
of the world are accordingly being
greatly depleted and the price of tin ia
gradually becoming higher.
For these reasons the discovery of
new deposits of tin ore is of great inter
est to mining men and to many who
Mnnected with the metal industry, I
tl as to investors. The United I
States consumes over 50 per cent of the
world's output of tin, but contributes
an inappreciable amount, so that any
information regarding deposits of tin
ore in this country is of especial inter
est. The southern Appalachian region
has not yet afforded tin ores in com
mercial qualities, but shows promise of
