THE SCT AKTOIT Tltir.NE-TIIUKSDAY MORNING. IA 31, 18iH.
S OF The Farmer' Dairy Despatch now runs witibule refrigtrutor ora on the Lehigh Valley road of o new and el put OiFBifn in transferring mill; from the Genuine country to Nw York, Newark and Philadwlpliia. The Farm er's Dairy Diptob, whleh ii coinposid principally of Scranton cupltaliits, it rapidly gaiuing biisinods untler inau iiRi'inent of A. P. Bedford, thron.;h WttOM eixor Ih the company wus or Kimiz. 1, and promises to bo one of tho most valuable milk lines iu the coun try. Frosident Joseph S. Hirris, of tho R' inline railroad, has returned to Phil, mltlpliin from ;i trip to the coal regions, whre lio wont toiutpsot the coudition of the flooded collieries. He reported that by the end of the week all of them will be pumped out. The temporary structure to replace the wrecked Mua cr bridge has also been completed, and tho company is about ready to resums tirafflo over its own lines to Williams port. It is cenerally understood that noth ing will be done toward reorganizing Boadiug until September or October, by which timo it in expected to have all the rival committees harmonizad and the way paved for a plan which will be readily odoj td by all Interests. The directors of the Philadelphia, Wilmington and Baliimoro Railroad yesterday declared a semi annual Oasil dividend of 3 per cent, payable ou July 2, to stockholders of record ou Slay 29. This is a reduction of per cent, from the Slay dividend of lb'J.i, which was 3J per cent. The exports of iron and steol from Great Britain for the four months to April 30 show a decided docrease. Thi-t year the total amount was 772,325 tons, valued at $3,773,001, while iu the corresponding period of last year it was 801, 35 tous, valued at $5,881,848; the diminution In quantity b)ing 10 i per cent., and in value 10.1 per cent. Tnen has been a very large loss this year In the exports of railroad material to the Australian colonies, and a still larger one in tho shipments of all olnsaes of iron and steel to India, so that the manufacturers are realizing the effect oi the silver policy in the latter couutry. In spite of tins decrease iu exports there has been no falling off in produc tion so far this year, but there is much cein plaint of low prices and increasing stocks on hand. The imports of iron ore hnvo increased a little, having been 1.523,884 tons so far this year, or more ly 3 5 per cent, than in thccorreipond ing period of 1803. President Harris, of the Reading company, after a careful inspection of that company's flooded collieries, has onuounced that not only was the ac tual ('Htm;? to tho various properties inconsiderable, but that before the close of tho present week all but thro s of the fifty-two collieries will have been reclaimed. An extra fores of men hus been put to work pumping out the water from the mine, and their work has been so effective that tl.irty collieries were reported as being on full time yesterday. The compmy's Iosh, throngh inability to fill orders, will be quite heavy. Shipments last week aggregated only 138,580 tons, ngainst 257.886 tons the correspond in a MUtok last year, a decrease of 121,820 tons, making the docreaso for the year 090,203 tons. Improvement In the authracite trade continues steadily, and will be promoted by the new circular, with its no more than reasonable increase. If we may believe the Stockholder, there is no longer any doubt that a large number of consntners who have heretofore used soft coal exclusively are now using anthracite. The Lahigh Valley has received several orders from soft coal consumers this week one order alone aggregating 2,000 tons and the Reading has been equally fortunate. The Reading, however, could only accept orders subject to delay in de livery, owing to its mines being flood ed by last week's storm. At oue time only twelve of the colleries of the com pany were in operation, but Itrsnnottfl efforts were made to "pump thorn out, " with such success that nil the mines, with the exaeption of three, have been reclaimed and are now turning ou: coal. They, moreover, are working full timo nnd free handed, and should tho present demand continue it is prob ablo both timo and number of men will bo increased. A circular addressed to the holders of the second consolidated mortgage funded coupon bonds of 1885, incomo bonds, preferred and common stock of the New York, Lake Erie and Western railroad issued by John King, president of the company, in answer to man v inquiries, gives the following informa' j tion concerning the plau of r -organization : Over 80 pr cent, of all classes of securities called for in tho plan have been deposited thereunder.and the new bonds have been ratified by the share holders. The new mortgage has been executed by the company and by the Farmers' Loan and Trust company, as trustees, and the same recorded. The company has never contemplated any modification of the terms of the circular of Jan. 2, 1894. Minor Industrial Notes: Thirty of tho Reading's fifty-two collior les have resumed operations lor four days per wook. W. & Nevins, for many years local freight agent of the Lehigh Valley rail road at Buffalo, has resigned. Tlie Doltimore Central Railroad com pany has appealed from sevon land dam age jurors' charges of $0iM for eleven sit tings In u little 18,800 case. Augustus Soheuch, foreman of the Cranberry strippings of A. Pardee & Co.. has resigned to accept the position of goenrnl superintendent of the stripping of J. C. Haydon & Co. He will assumo tho dutios of his new position next wook. Mutchler, Connolly & Donnelly, Phil lipsburg contractors, have boon awarded tho contract to rebuild the break in the Lehigh canal at Esston. The contractors have begun work with a force of 100 men. It Will requiro from 10,000 to 20,000 tons of stone to do the tilliag. Tho anthracite carrying roads are now pressed to their utmost to transport all the coal that is now being mined iu this district to tidewator and western points. On Sunday last the Delaware and Hudson Canal company wore obliged to run up wards of twenty trains north from Onr bondalo to prevent getting blocked. The Lehigh Valley and New Jorsey Central are also crowded, all of tuoir engines and crews being pressed Into service to move the coal over the mount. .inn and return of the empty cars to tho mines.

Mrs. Roland, connected with very re sectable people and now old nnd feeble, has beon for years considered a witch. Ig norant persons. so consider her. Others lay she is the living representative of his dark and awful majesty. It is said she quarrels as fiercely with tho ghosts of her mother and sister upon their frequent visits as she ever quareled with thstn In the flash. A little boy teld me that when he built fires for Mrs. Roland a few years ago she tojd him to "t a chair, quiek, for Lucy," npou one occasion. When he did so he heard distinctly tho rustle of a silk dress, aud Mrs. Roland, di recting her eyes to the apparently vacant chair, set up such a querulous scolding of Lucy's ghost as to frighten him nearly to death. "Stay iu purgatory," she said, "or else you'll have all those silk dresses so creased nnd glazed that they won't do for House man's rag bag. You only come back to hear yourself rustle iu silk, you proud hussy, and sntan can have no revenge be cause you burned yourself Up here!" "A great many times," said the child, "would she thus receive her ghostly visi tors. Sometimes they would soma to look over tho family jewels, and then there'd bo a great f us& bpcause certain of Mrs. It's relatives roHNd her, and she acquainted Lucy with the fact. Onco Lucy slapped tho witch's jaws. The hoy heard tho sound distinctly and tho red print of a hand showed plaiuly on tho pallid old cheek." Lucy was actually burned alive in that ugly old square house. She was burned in her kitchen fireplace, aud only one shoe, inside of which was a foot, proved that flesh, blood aud bono had perished there iu t he pile of blackened ashes ou the hearth. Chicago News. The Fox Wan Surprised. Tho Iluv. J. Murray, in his work on the creation, relates that on ono occasion an acquaintance of his was out shooting wild ducks. On reaching a bend of tho stream he saw six wild geeso out of range. Ho crouched down in the hope thaf they would presently como nearer. While thus concealed he observed a fox stealing down to tho bank, on reaching which he re mained motionless with his eyo fixed on the geese. At length he retired, but presently reap peared, carrying iu his mouth a very largo bundle of moss. He entered the water silently, sank himself and then, keeping the moss above tho water, himself con cealed, he floated among the geese. Sud denly one of them was drawn under the water, and the fox soon appeared on the bank with the goose on his hack. Close to the water's edge ho found a hole, caused by the uprooting of a tree. This hole he cleared out and enlarged, placed tho gooso ut the bottom of it and covered his prize with leaves aud dry litter, of which there was abundance close at hand. Tho fox then took his departure, and the interested watcher went to the hole and removed the goose, taking care to restore things to thoir former appearance. Then he resolved to observe what fol lowed. In about half an hour tho fox re turned in company with another. They went straight to the place where tho goose had been burled aud removed tho earth. No gooso there. They stood looking at each other for sonic time, and t hen sudden ly tho second fox attacked the other most furiously, as if enraged by having a trick played upon him. Boston Courier. Generosity Among Street Arabs. I was a witness on Park row of a pleas ant act by a street arab. Three ragged newsboys were trying to sell the earlier editions of tho afternoon papers. A man, carrying a largo bunch of fine looking bananas on his shoulder, passed close by. The motion of his body loosened one of the biggest and ripest, and it fell to the sidewalk. The man kepton, not notic ing or caring for the loss. Tho banana lay ou the pavement for about half a minute unseeu. Then tho largest of the three ragged urchins spied it, aud, with a cry oi delight, ho ran over and picked it up. It, was natural to suppose that he would proceed to ent it all himself, but instead of so doing he called his companions to his side and exhibited hia find. They eyed it greedily. Without any request, however, from them for a share In the coveted fruit, the finder divided the banana into three parts and gave his fellow newsboys each a part. The smallest piece he reserved for himself. It was only a small thing in itself, yet it showed, I thought, that there was somo thing noble bidden under the ragged gar ments of that little urchin. New York Herald. Tito nny nnd the Hit. A funny answer was received by Judge McMath to a query put to a littlo six-year-old boy, whom ho sought to entertain whilo rhiing In a street car the other even ing. The judge was on his way home after a hot day and wore his "stovepipe" hat on the back of his head. Beside him sat a middle aged gentleman with his littlo six-year-old hoy. The father of the boy nnd the judge carried on a conversa tion, during which tho hoy frequently peeped around his father, evidently at tracted by something. Tho judge at length tried to divert the boy from those occasional little stares and asKed, "And how are you, my littlo boy?" "Oh, I'm well," was the modest reply. "Can you tell me your name?" The name was given. "How old are you?" The boy slyly turned his eyes toward the judge and renvarked, "About ns old as that hat of yours." Cleveland Plnindcaler. A O,uos:r Norway Custom. Tho Briton who has been in Norway oi Denmark, and mixed with the Norwegians at home, canuot for the life of him sym pathize with tho Scandinavian custom ot shaking hands violently with one's fellow guests at dinner, and uttering the words, "Thanks for meat," when the meal is ended. It seems a most futile and ridicu lous proceeding. Well and good, if the in terchange of courtesies were confined to each guest severally nnd his host. But that every Individual should engngo in a methodical bout of handshaking with every one else seems absurd iu the extreme, Yet our Scandinavian friends do not feel them selves under nny compulsion to justify t his long established custom.

Ho Cooked III Meuls In Mis i in Pot Hat and Went About llarcfootcd, Sowing Apple Seeds and Tracts tie Was Con alderate Toward Everything Alive. One of the quaintest, queerest and most original characters that ever trod tho trackless wastes of the western wilderness was Jonathan Chapman, known as old Johnny A pplcseed. Pioneer, philosopher, philanthropist and nomologist was he, tak ing no thought of himself and living for others only. Ho would not, could he pro vent it, sutTer the slightest harm to be done to the meanest of living creatures. In tho great western solitudes ho led the life of the primitive Christian, taking a thought only of tho hour and letting a wise Providence lookout for the future. He thought hunting morally wrong, and ho would let a mosquito sit on him anil suck bis blood until the insect was satiated to bursting. This odd old man was the pioneer or chard planter of the west. For over twen ty years ho wandered over the states of Indiana, Ohio, Illinois and Missouri, plant ing apple seeds and selling and giving away tho seedlings. Many of the great apple orchards of the west owe t heir origin to Johnny Appleseed. Old Johnny was horn in Boston in 1T75. In 1801 he ap peared in the territory of Ohio with a load of apple seeds, which he planted in various places in and about Licking Creek. The first orchard originated by old Johnny was on the farm of Isaac Stodden, in what is now Licking county, O. "I have often wondered why there was such n widespread Ignorance of old Johnny Appleseed in the west," observed a friend of the writer recently. "Even among hor ticulturists his name Is scarcely known. There certainly was no character any more fully identified with the west than he in his day." Thus it is with all who have ever heard anything of t he quaint old man. The won der is that his name is not a byword and his history a part of the common school curriculum of the day. HIS TIN POT HAT. The early western pioneers who knew him but slightly considered old Johnny a vagabond. From cursory observation it would appear that their views wero pretty well founded. A more uncouth individual it would have been difficult to find. His garments were a bundle of rags. II is shoes, when he wore any, could scarcely be held on his feet by bits of twine, so dilapidated nnd worn were they. His pinched nnd grizzled features were covered by a growth of very shaggy beard. His hair was quite long and very much faded by constant ex posure to Wind and weather. But old Johnny's crowning glory was nn old tin mush pot that had a long handle. This battered old culinary utensil he wore for a hut, When he was tramping through the western forests the old man always cooked his meals in the old mush pot. The cravings of hunger satisfied, he would give the pot a careful washing, put It on his head and tramp on. This was his practice for over two decades. Tho old pot was bright enough on its inside, but its exterior wus a sight to behold, so blackened aud battered was it. With all his uncouthness of personality, however, old Johnny Appleseed hud an in tellect as keen ns the most polished schol ars of the day. Ills ideas wero far In ad vance of his time. Those who have re ceived personal Impressions of the old man Bay that he was a philosopher whose puri ty of thought was as clear as a perennial spring and whose life was us simple us that of a child. WHY lilt WAS SO NAMED. The name Johnny Appleseed was given him by the early settlers with whom he came in contact because he nearly always carried a bag full of apple seeds with him. These seeds by infinite toil ho gathered from the ciiler presses among tho Dutch farmers iu Pennsylvania. When a sufficient quantity of the seeds had been gat hered old Johnny would load the fruit of his labor in a canoe und start on a voyage dow n the Ohio river into tho great w ilderness of the west. In Indiana and Illinois, wherever there was the faint est suspicion of a. settlement, he went and planted his apple seeds, Sometimes he. would select an open place in the forest, his judgment telling him thut some day the white man would lie there. The dis covery of fruit bearing apple trees in the woods in these states has led many to be lieve that the apples are indigenous to the boil. When Indiana and Illinois became well settled, old Johnny extended his wauder ings west of the Mississippi river and planted his apple seeds on Missouri soil. In the wigwam of the Indian anil the cabin of the pioneer he was known and always welcome, lie must have made twenty such annual trips as the one above de scribed. When his seedlings became large enough he gave them to I ho set tiers or sold them for fond and clothes. IOMN OK HIS PKGUUARrTin, One of the most peculiar characteristics of old Johnny Appleseed was his religion. He led a simple, moral and harmless life. Ho was the follower of the new church, a Swedenhorgian, nnd he never lost nn op portunity to expound his doctrines. He carried with him always a little bundle of tracts. These he distributed among tho early settlers on the border of civilization. When he would make his return trips he would take those tracts up and leave new ones in their places. His advent in Ohio In the early days created a sensation. The simple minded people of the towns and vil lages knew nothing but the old faith, and their belief was strong in superstition. Some thought he was crazy, and there fore treated him with companion; others thought he was possessed of n devil and would not, allow him to enter their houses. At this time, however, a member of tho Baptist church of Richland county, O., a school teacher and the! lu st read man in the county, Invited the strange pilgrim to his home. TheOhioan said afterward that be fountLhls guest to be one of the best posted and most brilliant minded persons that ho had ever hail tho pleasure of meet ing. Those who knew the old man say that ho was in constant, fear of hurting some in sect or animal. One night ho built his camp lire in the woods and prepared to cook his evening meal. The niosqilltoes wero very thick about the lire and some of them flew into it and were scorched. This so worried old Johnny that ho took his old mush pot, hat, filled it with water aud quenched the lire. It is said that the strange old man to whom the west is indebted for most of its great apple orchards died in Allen county, Intl., near Fort Wayne. A person who knew him says that his death was a tri umphant passing into glory. He lav on the grass with his faco toward tho setting sun. Hll countenance was wreathed with smiles of rapture, und as the last beams of the great luminary died out, of the west the vital spark left its abode of flesh and passed iuto the great unknown.
