To more adequately handle its ever increasing traffic, The Erie
Railroad is constructing 260 miles of new double, triple and in some
places quadruple track between Salamanca and Ghicago. Five
thousand five hundred men are employed on this work which, will be
completed in the near future. The Erie Railroad will then operate over
1,000 miles of double tracked, rock-ballasted railroad between New
York and Ghicago and with increased service will more than ever be

Old Flags Decay,
Washington. Historic battle flags
of the United States in the museum
at West Point Military Academy are
in need of repair. The Civil Service
Commission is endeavoring to find an
oxpert needle woman to mend them.
These ancient colors are very valu
able. Most of them pertain to the
Revolutionary, Mexican and Civil
Wars and were carried by the troops
engaged in those conflicts.
The work or repairing these flags
will bo ver difficult because in most
cases the material has become so
brittle that they would almost fall
to pieces if handled roughly. Tho
older ones especially are fragile, and
in the opinion of the commission it
will require tho most expert work
manship to put them into condition

38,170 Reindeer in Alaska.
Washington. Uncle Sam owns 3,
77C reindeer in Alaska and is con
stantly increasing their number, ac
cording to a report of the Interior
Department. The report says the
total number of reindeer in Alaska
was 38,4 7G distributed among '54
The government introduced the
deer into Alaska from Siberia in
1912. Tho report says:
"In 20 years the reindeer indus
try has elevated the Eskimos in Alas
ka from nomadic hunters and fish
ers to civilized, thrify men.
Lumber Sold by Forest Service.
Washington. More than two bil
lion board feet of timber, with a'
value of four and ne-half million dol
lars on the stump, was sold by the
forest service last year, according
to the annual report of Henry S.
This is an increase of 107 per cent,
over the sales of tho largely for fu
ture. The timber sold was largely
for future cutting under contracts
that will run for a number of years.
The actual cut was a little less than
500 million board feet, an increase
of 15 per cent, over 1912. Still
larger sales are in prospect.
Desplto tlio efforts of temperance ad
vocates more distilled spirits were con
sumed last year than In previous years,'
and tho consumption of cigarettes, not
withstanding the agitation against their
use, was enormous.
Tho report of tho commissioner of In
ternal revenue shows that the production
of distilled spirits was 65,352.383 gallons,
which Is 7,103,308 gallons more than last
year. Tho quantity of spirits removed
from bonded warehouses, presumably for
consumption, exceeds by more than 7,
000,000 gallons tho quantity removed dur
There was an Increase of 3,055,150,170 in
tho production of cigarettes.
Output of the United States for 1012
was Two ami n Quarter Billion
Dollars Six Times the Value of
the Production of n Generation
The value of all minerals produced
in the United States in 1912, accord
ing to figures just compiled by Ed
ward W. Parker, statistician, of the
United States Geological Survey,
Teached the record-breaking total of
$2,243,G30,32G. This is more than
six times the value of the production
in 1882, 30 years ago. During that
period tho population has not quite
doubled, but the per capita output of
tho mines has increased from $7.2 1
During these three decades the
value of the output of some minerals
has made a striking increase. The
value of tlio pig-iron product, for in
stance, has increased from 10G to 420
million dollars; copper from 1G to
205 million dollars; gold from 32 to
93 million dollars; lead from 12 to
37 million dollars; zinc from 14G to
G95 million dollars; petroleum from
24 to 1G3 million dollars; natural gas
from 215 thousand to 84 million
dollars; cement from $3, GOO, 000 to
Still moro striking illustrations of
the growth of the mineral industry in
the United States are tlie figures
showing that, while in 1880 the total
mineral production In the United
States was valued at $3G4,000,000, in
1912 tho value of the pig iron alone
was $420,000,000, while the value of
tho coal production for 1912 was
nearly double tho total mineral out
put of 30 years ago. In 1880 the
value of tho mineral products was
approximately $1,000,000 a day; in
1912 It was over $G,000,000 a day.
