UNIQUE COAL WASHURY.
Srpnrntrt Urn Coal nml Alio Tills tho
Wllkes-Barre, Aus. 1G. Tho new
washery erected at the East Boston
mine of W. G. Payne & Co., In Kings
ton township, near Luzerne borough, Is
now In operation. It Is the llrst of Its
kind on the West Hide and hundreds
have visited It to sue it at work. The
washery serves a double purpose, sep
niatir.pc all the good coal from the large
culm piles and filling the abandoned
woi kings In the mine. Mr. Payne ex
liecls to do away with all the culm
about the i:ast Uoston and at the same
time secuie thousands of tons of coal
uf the smaller grades.
The method by which the culm Is
washed is thus described by the Times:
It Is llrst Hushed Into a line of ele
vators by a stream of water and Is
conveyed to the head of the washery,
where It Is dumped on a large plate,
which Is perforated by holes one Inch
by thtee-quarters of an Inch. From
hero the larger sizes are pushed into
s-mall chutes and the coal Is picked out.
The slate passes down the chutes Into
a pair of rock crushers, from which it
Is washed through plpts Into the aban
doned working of the mine.
The coal picked from the waste by
the boys Is sent through a pair of
small rollers, dropped from them Into
another sot of elevators, by which It is
carried back again to the plates. Pass
ing thiough the plates It passes Into a
screen, where the pea, buckwheat and
j Ice coal are separated. The coal after
leaving the screen passes Into the Jigs,
where It Is cleaned and prepared for
market. Each size Is then carried by
a separate conveying line to the coal
The culm that Is being washed is
conveniently located, so that but little
work Is necessary to get it into the
elevators. When needed a line of con
veyors will be placed. The machinery
for the washery was made at the Vul
can Iron Works and the washery Is In
charge of William Gaines, of Wilkes

The Philadelphia Ledger Continues
to Note Steady Improvement.
Philadelphia, Aug. 16. The Ledger
says: The anthracite collieries continue
working five days per week on three
quarteis time and all of the newly
mined coal Is being moved to market.
The lecent scarcity of vessels has some
what retarded the eastern shipments
of coal, and the storage pockets at the
Nt-w England distributing points have
been pretty well depleted of stock. The
Heading company Is now busily en
gaged in replenishing Its stocks of coal
In the east and is also distributing con
siderable coal In other quarters, while
all of the anthracite mining and carry
ing companies are now working their
collieries four to five days per week
on three-quarters time and are mak
ing preparations for an active fall busi
ness. It Is not Improbable that there will
be made an advance of 15023 cents per
ton In the prices for the prepared sizes
of anthracite about Sept. 1. The local
line and city trade continues quiet, but
it is expected that the proposed ad
vance In the pi Ices for coal will stim
ulate renewed buying before the end
of the month. The anthracite tiade
generally Is reported to be In quite
a healthy condition, and tho outlook
for Increased business and higher
pi ices for coal at an early day is said
by the well Informed to be excellent.
WAS SHE BETRAYED?
Sad Circumstances of the Death oi
Nisi Jennie Ji-uldn.
Wllkes-Harre, Aug. 10. Says the Rec
ord: The sudden death of Miss Jennie
Jenkins, a well known young woman of
Plymouth, at the home of Mrs. John
O'Connell In Edwardsvllle on Saturday
morning at 9 o'clock, under peculiar
circumstances, has caused a big sensa

She was 20 years old and for the past
four years has worked out as a do
mestic. She was quite good looking

ly disposition, her character was never
questioned and no one Is more shocked
at her untlmply end under such a cloud
trjan are her Intimate friends.
Miss Jenkins was last employed at
the Central house In Kingston, which
place sho left about three weeks ago.
She went to the home of Mrs. O'Con
nell, which' is situated near No. 4 break
er of the Kingston Coal company, last
Sunday night, accompanied by a girl
friend. On Sunday.nlght she was taken
violently ill and on Monday Dr, Corss,

is worthy of consideration, especially when anyone buys for a large

sum when the year rounds about. We make our money on buying.
We buy only for cash, and from manufacturers in need of ready
