Mr. Atkinson's duties as state engineer also include the in spection of coal mines in which lie takes considerable interest. He was taken to Klein Saturday afternoon, where he took advantage of the op portunity to investigate the work ings of Mine No, 2, considered one of the best coal mining plants in the world. He expressed surprise at the wonderful improvements made here in the comparatively short time the mines have been in operation. The coal mined in the state of North Dakota is all of the lignite grade, yet Mr. Atkinson sees a great future for the iudustry in his state. Especially is this true since the perfection of the briquet ting process has made it possible to transform the lignite into a coal almostsemi-bituminous.
