WHEN the new electric lights :n the
Big Mountain colliery, near Shenanaoah,
were first put in operation a few dys
ago, seven dazed and dazzled mules,
which for. five years had seen no brighter
luminary than lanterns, turned tail and
fled into the depths of tho mine. The
workmen tell interesting tories about
the habits of colliery mulus, their tough
ness, their contentment, and their totel
depravity. Several months ago the
lower levels in the largest colliery at St.
Clair were flooded, work was stopped,
and all the mules were hoisted to the
surface. More than a dozen of them
had passed eleven continuous years in
the mine, and had apparently forgott,n
that there was a world of grass and sun
shine, for when they were turned out to
pasture they huddled together in evideni
alarm, and for a whole day did nothing
but gaze on earth and sky. The prob
ability is, that they were at first blinded
by the glare-a common experience with
their kindred under similar circum
stances. Just as they were beginning
to enjoy their now life work was resumed
in the mines, and they went lback to
their old home in the darkness.
