SOME ODD FACÍS ABOUT COAL
Material Is Not Always Black in Color
- -Colliery Merely . Derivation
From Coalery. .
A colliery used to be called a coal
ery. Coal-meter Is an old name given
to on? who superintended the meas
uring of coals. Coalstone Is a species
of hard, opaque, inflammable coal,
which does not soil or -dirty the fin
gers when touched. It Is jet-black,
and can be cut. Brown coal hos been
found at Bovey, Devonshire and ou the
continent. CoaUhod Is an old-fashioned
name for scuttle. Gas light can
be traced back over 200 years. A Mr.
T. Shirley, In 10G0, attributed a burn
ing well at WIgan to the presence of
coal underneath It. Just about this
time a Mr. Clayton procured gas by
distilling " coal. . - Practical lighting,
however, came very slowly. In 1729
a Mr. Murdoch Illuminated his house
with gaslight, and a very poor show It
is said to have been. Ho lived nt Re
druth, Cornwall. In 1802, Birmingham,
in celebrating tho peace of Amiens,
brightened up a large factory with
gaslight. Thousands Journeyed to see
the wonderful sight which led to
gas-works being established at that
place, and In Manchester and Halifax.

Wins Championships at Interna
tional Live Stock Show.
Splendid Exhibits, Both of Animals
and Grain, Won Admiration of
Judges and Spectators.
One of the most Interesting sights
at the International Live Stock show
at Chicago was the evening parades
of horses and cattle. As the Cana
dian section of these parades came in
to view, and as it passed around the
ring, there was continued applause.
There were two or three reasons for
this, the principal ,one being that in
this section there were the wonderful
Clydesdales, the Belgians and the Per
cherons that had carried off champion
ships and first prizes. The province
of Saskatchewan had a splendid dis
play of Clydesdales and showed In a
number of classes, and In every class
they got In the money. A remarkable
and noted winning was that of the
University of Saskatchewan, showing
"Lady Bruce," female Clydesdale, In
a class of 24 and taking second. In
competition there were entries from
such famous studs as Conyngham Bros,
of Wilkesbarre, P. L. James of Easton,
Mass., and George Chiett of the same
state. She was beaten by an Imported
mare, but was later made champion
American-bred mare and reserve
grand champion, an honor never before
conferred upon anything but an Im
The following are some of the good
things that Canada won at the Inter
national, in a fair fight and no favors.
Grand championship for Clydesdale
stallions ; championship for American
bred Clydesdale mares; reserve senior
and reserve grand championships for
Clydesdale mares; grand champion
ship for Southdown sheep ; sweepstakes
grand championship for wheat for the
continent of America ; championship
for Durum wheat for America.
Another of the reasons for the ap
plause given the Canadian sections of
the parade was the heartiness with
which the American spirit was imbued
that Impelled it to greet with the full
est appreciation the efforts of the win
ner, and the hundreds of Canadians in
the immense audience of the amphi
theater appreciated It.
The purpose that Canada had In
making exhibits from their farms,
whether It was of live stock and they
had It there In all branches grains,
grasses or roots, was to demonstrate
that the war had not created devasta
tion, that the country was alive with
interest in the matter of production
and that It had ability to produce In a
manner that would bring It champion
ships, and what better place than the
International, where it would be placed
before thousands, many of whom, with
the enlightenment thus gained and
with a desire to better their condition,
would be made to realize that in the
neighboring country to the north there
was an opportunity that It might be
of advantage to them to embrace.
