Superintendent Williams' Mine Drill Gaining Ground. For several days past groups of men, the majority of them being miners, havo been frequenting Luburg's hardware store, on North Main street. Seeing a group of the horny-handed sons of toil In the sture yes terday afternoon a UkkALD reporter rteppod in to learn tho object of attraction md lound it in a splendid little model ol tho mine drill patented by Mr. John L Williams, tho diviion superintendent lor the Philadelphia & Reading O. & I. Co. Tho model is an exceedingly neat piece of work and it shows tho uso of the full-size machine very advantageously. It has at tracted hundreds of miners to the etoro the past week. It is placed upon a box in front of a lump if coal, so visitors may operate it and understand bow it works, and teethe advantages of tho macblns over other drills. Tho miners who havo seen the modol and who have used the drill in their work say the machine Is destined to go to the front and outstrip all other styles. A description of tho drill may not bo out of place hero. Tho accompanying cut has been kindly loanod to tho Hera d by Mr. Williams. The drill overcomes, in an cffoctuil and practical manner, n-arly alt the owontlal objections which hereto fore havo orovonted any ol tho so-culled labor-saving drilling machines from be coming popular among miners. Tho principal fea turcs of tho drill aro de lineated in tho accompany ing cut and it is 6hown in a position ready for work. Tho main bar (A) is made o malleablo iron, about 30 inchrs long and 11 incln'S thick. Tho for ward end (f) is slightly beveled and tapered, tho upper surface being pro- yiuoa wun six steol spur teeth. Attached to tho main bar by a slot bolt ( j) is a brace rod (t) and wedge (g). By this contrivance tho drill can be secured in position in less than ten soconds, by driving tho wodgo (g) un derneath tho forward end of main bir with a hammer, thus forcing tho teeth firmly into tho coal. Th wedge g), as already shown, bolng attached to the brace rod (tl which is tcrnw throadod at tho back end (j'l- easlly adjusted in the slotted boitand held in placo by lock or jam nuts. Tho brace rod (t) thus tightened prevents all vibration ol tho main bar (A) or the drill-ouarUlnit t''ed bar (b) which il carries, thereby rendering the drill loss liable to loss of power in cutting, because Its course is kept truo and free from friction. At the hick end of the main bar (A), and attached to it by an ordinary bolt, is flttod a spherical socket, with ball boanng geared to tho head-iiece or nut. Tho head-piece is threaded on the inside to carry tho tubular or hollow feed bar lb) through which tho drill stora (0 passes. This drid stem (i) is fitted so as to revolve freoly within tho teed bar (4) through which it pasfos, in order to oorcomo all resistance on tho bit (o) when hard substancos aro encountered, which is oasily accomplished by merely turning a thumb scrow id) on the wheel end of thofred bar. This throws tho drill 6tom (J) free from tho food bar (A) to rovolve without being forced forward faster than tho operator may desire to feed it, which he does in tba same manner as if using tho ordinary rachet to drill iron. The crank bandies (k) are supplied with oxtbnsion levers, and tho feod can be regu lated fast or slow by turning tho hand whool (e) in connection with tho cranks, or by using it to feod in rachet stylo when cutting through bard rock or elate. Tho cog wheel (c) gives great additional power to tho machine and is "iio of Its material advantages. Tho foed bar (4) has a slot wheroln a feathered key of the cog wheel (c) fits to enablotheuso of the crank handles (A) on the sides, which besides Us increase mo tive powor, Is a great benefit when it is ro'iuired to bore a hole close to the rib side. Tho bit (a) is made with throo cutting points, which takes out the center and face of a bole quickly, while tho twist of tho bit (a) increases in spiral form all tho way from point to heel, which makes it im possible for the cuttings to clog tho hole, as they are carried backward and discharged at the mouth of tho opening. This not only does away with a scraper, but ensures . free and easy working of the drill to any depth required. The feed attachment of Mr. Williams' drill can bo readily adjusted to the drills made by Hownlls, Bittonbondor and others. Tho drill, however, is far superior to thpso of other make, as was amply demonstrated In the test before several prominent mine officials at the Kohley Run colliory. It is simple in all points of construction, does not oxceed twenty-five pounds in weight, and can bo sold at retail less than the price now charged for the others at a'good profit.

FULLY 200 ELDERS ARE ENGAGED Laboring With Renewed Activity Throughout England and Scan dinavia Tho Prosolylors All Young Men. London, Sep. 11. The renewed nc tlvlty of Mormon mlsstonarlealn England nnd In Scandinavia is attracting marked nttcntlon. As previously stated fully 200 elders from Utah are now engaged iu tbo work of pronulyting in the two coxin tries mentioned. They nre sent from Snlt Lnko City with commissioners, to stay one or two years, when they return, nnd their places nro taken by frosU re cruits. In Yorksblro tliero nro known to bo eight at work, and inoro than this num ber nro laboring in Lancashire Two of these mlisionniles have been working in n small Lancashire village for uearly a year. They do not bold public meetings, but endeavor to secure converts by private interviews. Their method is to visit tho people in their own homes nnd In con versation with thom to point out tho beauty of tbo system of belief of tbo Lat ter Day Saints. They havo n supply of trncts, setting forth tho Mormon fnltb, which they freely distribute Theso proselyters are young men. A reportor happened to be visiting tho cottage when ono these missionaries called. Hie cottage was occupied by three women weavers, and all single. The elder said, after a pleasant greet ing, "I will leave you this tract and will call again to answer you nry questions you may desire to ask mo about it." The tract contained nu outline of the doctrines nnd was entitled "Tho Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Its Faith and Teaching. By Elder John Morgan." A man, whom ono of these ciders vis ited, says: "I nskod him a simple ques tion, and that wns enough. I said: 'Do you believe in a plurality of wivesf Ho replied in tho nfllrmatlvo. I then told lilm that Mint finished tho Job, so fur ns I wns concerned. To a man ono of the ciders showed a card containing tho "articles of faith" of tho Latter Day Saints, which asserted belief in tho gift or prophecy, in visions, in the power of healing by prayer, itc. The man suggested to tho eldor that he go with him and euro a girl who bad a withered hand. To this request tho elder replied that be bad seen sight restored to the blind by prayer, but that he would not visit the girl referred to, us faith was necessary on her part in or der to bring about a cure. This elder in tho courso of an inter view said polygamlsts wore of as pure life as others. They lived in nccordanco with the laws of Abraham. They were not prompted by vice, but were simply fulfilling God's will. "Thero aro no Mormons now living in polygamy," said ho, "but they are obey ing tho decision of the Supreme Court of tho United States. In Utah it is believed that tho decision is unjust, nnd wo fought it until the Church decided to nbido by the decision. "The decrco, howover, caused a grent amount of suffering, In consequence of the forced separation of wives nnd chil dren from their husbands ana rntliors. "Wo bellove that Christ will return to His own pcoplo, who will be gathered to gether in tho United States, Our con verts are still mostly drawn ' from Eng land, Wulcs and Scandinavia." Improved Mail Faollltios. Postmastor Goo. S. Keipor, and his effi cient aid, F. E. Slrohmoior, are constantly dvliug means by which our mail facili ties can bo Improved, and tinco thoy havo ben working together have tucceodod in mklng several radical changes in tho sys tem that have been of much boneSt to our business people. By tbi-ir lalost move, ("tiers aro now sent from Ashland ti Scranton, Wilkes-Bar -o, Eiston, Hnzieton, Shenaudoah and other points on the "can non ball" train, loaving tbo P. & R. station at 0 12 p. m. Although they trAVol a longer distance to get to their destinations, they aro received there much quicker than if tbey bad been hold until noxt morning and sent by the regular mail trains. They ,u e punched direct to Philadelphia where tbey arrive at 11 p. m, and leave on mid night trains for points named. Thus It can bo seen that a letter for Sbenaiidoah, leav ing on this train, tavels two hundred and lorty nulos to reach a town that is only nlno miles distant. Although It is pouched 1.0 Philadelphia and travels this remark able distanco, it Is back in Shenandoah at 4:21 next morning, which is somewhat of an improvement over tho old way of send Ing a letter to Sbonandoab, as heretofore the first mail lrom Ashland was received thero at 10 a. in.
