Workeis of America at llazclton. Pa.,
this week the coal operators tliroujiU
out the nnthiaeite region Saturday
posted notices auuuuucin that the 10-
per-cent. advance m wages ami ctner
foncessiuiis made to tbe miners last
November -would be continued until
April 1, l'MJ. and that local differences
would be adjusted with the employes
of the respective collieries. This ac
tion, it is understood, was determined
upon a week ago. and is said to have
been the result of a desire ou the part
of the operators to avoid a conference
with the miners.
Will Not Keeognize tbe Union.
Notices have been posted at all
mines operated by the following com
panies: The Heading Coal ami Iron
company, the l.ehigh Valley Coal com
pany, Delaware and Hudson. Pennsyl
vania railroad, Delaware, Lackawan
na and Western, Central railroad of
New Jersey. Pennsylvania Coal com
pany (now controlled by the Krie Kail
road company and the Hillside Coal
company. While the officials of the
companies are reticent it is under
stood that they will positively decline
to take part in the miners' convention.
The request made by President Mitch
ell, of the U. M. W.. that the operators
send representatives to the conference
has thus far been for the most part
ignored. In one or two cases a negative
reply was sent. The operators are said
to bo anxious to avoid any action that
might be considered a recognition of
Will Treat with Their Own Employes.
They have, however, expressed their
willingness to treat with their own em
ployes when there are any grievances
to be adjusted. While the agreement
to continue the existing scale appears
to be unanimous all of the companies
do not favor the idea. An official of
one of the largest coal carrying roads
in the state said-that the increased
wage scale keeps the selling price of
coal too high, especially where anthra
cite coal competes with the bituminous.
He said also that there is a big de
mand for anthracite coal at present,
and that the high price can be main
tained only so long as the boom con
tiirues. Miners Who Want an Advance.
In only one instance thus ftir have
the miners openly expressed disap
proval of the scale. The employes of
the Mineral Railroad and Mining com
pany in the Shaniokin region say they
want a C per cent, advance to place
them on the same basis as the Heading

Also a Few Facts on the Same Snbject
We hear much nowadays about
health foods and hygienic living,
about vegetarianism and many other
fais along the same line.
Restaurants may be found in the
large cities where no meat, pastry or
coffee is served and the food crank is
in his glory, and arguments and the
ories galore advanced to prove that
meat was never intended for human
s'.omachs, and almost make us be
lieve that our sturdy ancestors who
lived four score years in robust health
on roast beef, pork and mutton must
have been grossly ignorant of the
laws cf health.
Our forefathers had other things to
do than formulate theories about the
food they ate. A warm welcome was
extended to any kind from bacon to
A healthy appetite and common
sense are excellent guides to follow in
matters of diet, and a mixed diet of
grains, fruits and meats is undoubt
edly the best.
As compared with grains and vege
tables, meat furnishes the most nutri
ment in a highly concentrated form
and is digested and assimilated more
ciuickly than vegetables and grains.
Dr. Julius Kemmson on this sub
ject says: "Nervous persons, people
run down in health and of low vital
ity should eat meat and plenty of it.
It the digestion is too feeble at first
it may be easily corrected by the regu
lar use of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets
after each meal. Two of these excel
lent tablets taken after dinner will
digest several thousand grains of
meat, eggs or oi her animal food In
three hours, and no matter how weak
the stomach may be, no trouble will
be experienced if a regular practice is
mide of using Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets, because they supply the pep
sin and diastase necessary to peifect
digestion, and every form of indiges
tion will b8 overcome by their use.
"J. hat large class of people who come
u ider the head of nervous dyspeptics
should eat plenty of meat and insure
its proper digestion by the daily use
of a'nafe, harmless digestive medicine
like Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, com
posed of the natural digestive princi
ples, pepsin, diastase, fruit acids and
salts, which actually perform the
work of digestion. Cheap cathartic
medicines, masquerading under tbe
name of dyspepsia cures, are useless
for indigestion, as they have no effect
upon the actual digestion of food.
"Dyspepsia in ail its many forms is
simply a failure of the stomach to di
gest food, and the sensible way to
solve the riddle and cure the dyspep
sia is to make daily use at a meal ot a
preparation like Stuart's Djppepsia
Tablets, which is indorsed by the
medical profession and known to con
tain active digestive principles.
