The? coming marriage Is the cul mination of a romance of a, year s#o. On an automobile tour through In diana, Mr. Coey first met Miss Lewis. The dashing "sky-pilot" won her heart: It was a case of mutual af fection. Shortly afterward they be came engaged. Miss Lewi$ is the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. B. Lewis.

SO.—The waste of mineral products in the United States amounts to $1,000,000 per day in value. The waste of natural gas amounts to 1,000,000,000 cubic feet per day, or more than enough to light all the cities of the United States having more than 100,000 population. These statements were made by Sen ator Flint of California at the recent meeting of the national conservation commission in Washington, in his re port on the mineral section of the commission. Senator Flint called attention to the very large waste of material and the large loss of life which characterizes the mineral industries ip all .parts of the country/ which he said was de plorable. Equals Half Mined Product. "The enormous waste in coal mining is equivalent to about one-half of the total product mined, or for the year 1907 about 280,000,000 tons," said Sen ator Flint. "With an entire waste of all mineral products approximating $1,000,000 per day, and with the min eral production of the United States during the past year amounting to $2,000,000,000, this waste Is equivalent to more than one-sixth th# value of the total production. "The seriousness of this loss Is more clearly appreciated when it is remem bered that our production and con sumption are Increasing much more rapidly than is the population of. the country: that the mineral supplies for future use are limited in quantity and cannot be reproduced. No new sup plies are being created to take the place of those being withdrawn from the earth, and either used or wasted When once these supplies are ex hausted, the exhaustion Is complete and permanent.

"But more serrous even than waste of materials Is the' excessive loss of life in our mining operat'ons. We are grieved to find that during the past ye*r in coal mines alone more than 3.000 men were killed and more than 7.000 Injured and our dis tress Is increased rather than dimin ished to find that the number of men killed In the United States for each 1,000 men employed In the mines is from- two to four times as great as It Is In other coal mining countries. "The seriousness of this problem Is shown when the fundamental facts are brought to the front that these mineral resources have required untold ages for their accumulation: that no human being has contrlbutade toward this ac cumulation or has increased the in trinsic value of these resources and that hence their present owners, whether acquiring them throuarh dis covery or purchase, have- ro right to waste or destroy that which is neces sary to the wealth of th« .. nation, which th*v did not create and which thev cannot replace. "The COP I supplies of the -United States, which occupv an aararegatr area of 500,000 snuare miles, are esti mated to contain about 1.400.000,000 tons of coal available for mining un der existing conditions.

The richest—and I met crowds over there—are terribly vulgar. Now they import English butlers and Eng lish footmen to wait upon them, and, believe me, one would find the man ners of the servants' hall more con genial than those In. the drawing room. "I have one good thing to say about New York," L®»*y Auckland explained, "and that is in praise of the climate. When I have praised the climate, I can praise little else. Everything is Inordinately mean and the system of inflated tipping is utterly paramount. "You must remember when I talk about America I mean New York, just as an American does.

'The estimates of our iron ore plies, based upon data gathered from every available source, indicate that of the high-grade ores we have in sight available for use under present eco nomic conditions 3,840,000,000 tons of which nearly two-thirds are located in the Lake Superior district. In addition to this, the final estimate of low-grade iron ores, those not available for use under existing conditions, shows that there are about 59,000,000,000 tons dis tributed throughout the iron-producing1 districts. At the present increasing: rate of consumption It Is estimated, that the high grade iron ores will have been largely consumed by the middle of the present century while the sup-, plies of high-grade coal may be ex tended to near the middles of the next century. "As to copper, lead, zinc and tit«* precious metals, It Is estimated thats. without discovery of other deposits a$: the present increasing rate of con suniption, the known supplies of thesa materials will not last beyond th«| present century, and the probability o$ discovery of new supplies is diminish-*, ing with each year. The losses in th,| mining and treatment of these metalsl., are even greater than with the iron. With lead, zinc and iron ores the ohie^| source of loss is in the me tale them^i selves, through rust, electrolytic ac-. tlon, etc. "In all our efforts to conserve resources and to protect the liv health of the men who extract metals from the earth, we shall alway# be dependent upon the active co* operation of the states.
