ttcally the same source of supply. The
eight districts named are:

Mine Foremen in Demand.
Capable mine foremen are always in
demand in the Fairmont district and
there is splendid opportunity for the j
miner who aspires to a responsible position
in connection with mining. The
mine foreman is a very responsible position,
too, being classed by leading
operators of the region as the "hub"
in the production of coal. The state
lavs of West Virginia make the mine
foreman the "boss" in the mines and
make him responsible to the state
both as to the conduct of the mines
and in regard to the safety of the men.
The mine foreman make good wages,
being paid as much as the bankers,
as is often pointed ont in connection
with the money paid out for the producing
of coaj. There is not only a demnad
for mine foremen hut for men
for fire-boss, and tipple foremen. The
mine foreman-is often advanced to
mine superintendent when he proves
himself capable though the fact that
a man is a first class mine foreman
does not necessarily fit him for the du
