Counteracting the Desire of the Rising Generation to Go Klsewhere by Hutld ing Club-Houses and Aiding Them to Advance Themselves. The young men of this part of the coal field have flowed outward in a steady stream for livo years or more past. This depletion in the homes of the mining villages has of late caused more or less concern to the managers of mining corporations of the vicinity. The young man is still a necessary part of the equipment of any properly con ducted colliery. Machinery and foreign labor have displaced them in many vocations about the mines, but there Is yet abundant use for the activity, energy and brightness of tho American boy, and, try as they will, the lime has not yet arrived when coal companies can run their huge plants without him. Hence the departure and continued absenco of Iho boys, unnotieod at first by the coal officials, has lately assumed a position among their troublesome questions, and efforts are now being made to induce the young men to remain here, instead of going off to seek that higher and more ideal life craved by youthful nature, which in the past was not to bo found in the monotonous existence which was a boy's lot in the coal region. With this object in view, to make their evenings and leisure hours more pleasant than heretofore, club-houses and rooms arc being built in the mining towns, wherein the younger employes can meet and derive, to a limited extent at least, the advantages to bo gained by associating with ono another, eacli giv ing to his fellows tho benefit of his knowledge in some particular branch of education or sport, all reaping some thing from the whole, and the result tending to bring thorn nearer to those attributes which go to make man better and nobler. A room of tills description has for some years boon maintained at Jcddn by the Progressive Club. Jcddo today has triple tho number of young men of any town in tho coal fields, in propor tion to population. The desiro to wander off lias boon reduced to a mini mum, and tliis fact lias not escaped the attention of John Marklo, the head of tho firm at that place. To assist the boys in their clnvating work he has offered to build the organization a club house which will meet their demands more fully than thoir present quarters. Work upon the structure will soon begin. It will bo a two-story building, with basement,. A steam-heating plant will he installed, and the club will add largely to its present library and furnish the house th roughout. Previously a ball has been held in Freeland annually on Thanksgiving Eve by the club, to procure tho necessary revenue to maintain its room. Under an agreement made with Superinten dent Smith, of the Markle firm, who is also interested in tho club's work, this form of raising money will hereafter he dispensed with, and a donation of SSO will be made to tho Progressive Club by Mr. Smith every Thanksgiving. Tho company will also erect a club houso at Oakd&le for tho young residents of that town. A year ago the Cross Creek Coal Com pany presented the young men of Drif ton with a building for purposes similar to those outlined above, and a few weeks ago completed another building at tho hall park in that town, designed and adapted for the use of tho Fearnots Athletic Association. This intorest which the coal com panies of our vicinity are taking in on couraging tho young to stay hero is truly commendable, and with a little more humanity shown all their employes during working hours, will go farther to establish friendly feelings and harmoni ous relations between capital and labor in our midst than any person can predict. Every such movement of the corporations, having the advancement of man as one of its objects, even though tho main incentive in inaugurating it may he a personal ono, will redound to their credit and will be appreciated by the beneficiaries. A Great Attraction. The Red Cross nurse, in her desire to ease the pain and quell the agony of the wounded sufferers, did no small dam age to faithful hearts, during the late war. In "A Daughter of Cuba," which comes to the Grand opera house, Hazle ton, tomorrow evening, Miss Joan Mawson, in her petite, graceful way portrays the loving, gentle, sympathetic nurse. Tho play deals with the love of two people who havo mot on tho field of battle, wherein a tent has hastily been erected. Tho nurse tremblingly prepares for tho treatment of tho first of tho wounded. She has followed her lover to a fever-ridden country after tho usual lover's quarrel and with hopes of a reconciliation adopts tho custom of the Red Cross.

Tho performance will begin promptly at 8 o'clock, so as to anabio the people attending to ride to tlieir homes. Injured on the Railroad.
