NEW KIND OF BOILER.
Iinportnnt Improvements Ucing Made
at the Wiltimn A. Colliery.
Several important Improvements
says the Plttston Gazette are in pro
gress at the William A. colliery of the
Connell Coal company, near Duryea.
Chief among them Is the establishment
of a line new auxiliary steam-producing
plant of novel design. The plant
is located at the rear of the old boiler
house, and consists of a vertical water
tube boiler known as the "Porcupine"
and manufactured by the Hazleton
Boiler company of New York city. The
most peculiar feature of the plant .Is
that tho boiler stands on end. The
boiler proper Is twenty-seven feet
high, but a hood and stack erected on
top of the boiler tower seventy-one
feet Into the air. The boiler has the
appeal ance of a cylinder boiler forty
one Inches in diameter standing up
right, in which 918 holes are bored for
the reception of four-Inch tubes which
will project outward thirty-three In
ches, thus giving the name "Porcupine"
to the boiler.
"A circular wall of fire brick will
eurround the tubes and the brick will
be incased in Iron. The boiler will
have a capacity of 250 porse power,
and the waste heat from nine cylinder
boilers adjoining will be used to gener
ate steam in the new boiler, though It
is fitted with flte place to be used when
necessary. The supply pipe will run
from the top of the boiler and the
boiler will be fed by a No. 11 Sellers
injector and pump. There are but few
boilers of this style In this section, and
the one now being erected has Improve
ments which are not features of the
others. There Is one at Dorranceton,
one at Plymouth, and several at Haz
leton. William Hart, of New York, has
charge of the work of erecting the
plant, and we are Indebted to him for
The William A. breaker suspended
work Friday for the remainder of the
month. Meantime, the breaker will be
fitted with Zelgler patent slate pickers
which will be used to clean the stove
coal. These pickers are now In opera
tion. In the Connell company's Law
rence breaker, and are giving excellent
satisfaction. Superintendent Samuel
T. Jones hones that the work on the
boiler plant and in the breaker will be
completed In time to resume work on
July 1. The Connell company takes
pride in fitting the William A. colliery,
inside and outside, with the very latest
improvements, and It Is one of the fin
est plants in the region.

Well Known Condition and
remits. With tho approach of spring ho
has had an indescribablo fooling of 111
health. 'Not sick enough for tho bed or
well enough foi the table.' Inn few words,
Ho Bocamo Run Down
each year from constant mental and phy
sical action. Hood's Sarsaparllla has re
lieved and Invigorated him In overy In
stance. Last month wo purchased four
bottles of tho medicine. I took two of
tho bottles, being weak,
Without Appotlto and Vigor.
After I had used halt a bottlo ot
Hood's I realized quite an improvement
and soon felt qulto comfortable. I gained
so much that I recommended Hood's Sar-
eaparlllft to my nearest neighbor, who has
had malarial symptoms. She has also
taken tho medicine and its effect upon her
for good was almost magic. Sho has now
prevailed upon her husband to tako it to
build him up. I havo also givon Hood's
Sarsaparllla to my two little girls, ono
nearly 3 years old, who is not strong, con
sequently languid, and tho other, 15 years
old, for pimples which lndlcato bad blood
and disfigure her comploxion. Both havo
been helped by Hood's Sarsaparllla which
I am glad heartily to recommend." Mrs.
