Daniel Sully as "O'Brien, tho Con
-3 tractor," presents one of tho most ox
f citing and realistic scenes known to the
, stage. It shows the blasting of rock,
the actual construction of a railroad,
the threatened strike and the final driv
* ingnf the "golden spike." It is a scene
4 long to be remembered for it is true to
nature. At the Grand soon.
Wooden Hull road Tien Must Go.
A serious blow is threatened the hun
dreds engaged in the railroad tie mak
ing in this and other counties. The
Railroad Gazette has an article in which
it is contended that railways will in the
near future use a rigid foundation for
their rails, employing to this end metal
cross ties. Heavier and harder rails
will also bo used, with tho result of a
large saving of annual expense in
repairs and renewals. In tho cities the
tracks of tho street cars are, given a
rigid and solid construction, whereas,
opinion formerly favored an elastic
track.
On steam railroads, the old methods
are tenaciously adhered to, and no
material improvements has been made
in track construction since steel rails
have been introduced. The railroad
track of the present day represents only
a long flexible makeshift bridge of
roughly spiked rails on more or less
yielding support of lose Hies. Under a
railroad train it behaves very much like
the keyboard of a piano under the hand
of a player.
It is very far from the condition of
tho'rigid and smooth track of modern
street car lines, on which the expense
of repairs and maintenance, exclusive
of renewals, lias been reduced to a mere
nominal amount. But the enormous
cost of 845,000 to 860,000 per mile for
such puts it out of the question for
steam railroads.
The cost of repairs annually is about
8800 a year por mile where traffic is
heavy, exclusive of renewals of rails
and ties which cost 8400. The cost of
track is about 810,000. If the cost of
repairs and renewals be capitalized,
there should be ample sum for rigid con
struction. If wooden cross ties are
displaced in favor of steel the rails will
be placed on longtitudinal metallic
sleepers which will add greatly to the
rigidity of the track.
An Important Coal Case.
Referee S. J. Strauss last week heard
tho arguments of counsel in an import
ant case which involves oyer s3o,oooand
also the meaning of tho term "miners'
ton" or "miners' weight." The plaintiffs
in tho case are M. W. Morris, I. Everett,
George K. Drake, Thomas Drake and
Ebenezer Drake, and the defendants
John Jermyn, Joseph J. Jermyn, 11. D.
and Jeremiah B. Shit Tor. The
plaintiffs leased certain coal lands in
Lackawanna township to tho defen
dants upon a royalty of 10 cents per
ton miners' weight. The lease was made
in 1865 and tho controversy involves the l
meaning "minors' weight" in tho lease.
The plaintiffs contend that the min
ers' weight was 2,464 pounds to tho ton
of sucli material as came from the,
mines, acceptable under tho rules of
mining in vogue at tho time, for which
the employer paid tho miner. The de
fendants claim a miners' weight ton
was such coal and refuse that came
from the mines and was accepted from
tho men, as would make a ton of pre
pared coal; also that tho question in
volved in this case was settled in a
former suit in which tho supreme court
rendered a decision which was final and
conclusive and prevents the plaintiffs in
tho present case from securing a judg
ment.
Yoiiiik People Married.
Frank McNeils, of Mauch Chunk,
formerly of Upper Lehigh, and Miss
Mary Ferry, of Washington and Carbon
streets, were married at St. Ann's
church, on Thursday. Miss Annie Bon
ner was bridesmaid and Michael Cun
ningham, of Mauch Chunk, groomsman.
The young couple will reside at Mauch
Chunk.
Bernard Philips and Miss Annie Mc
llugh, of Jeddo, wore married at St.
Ann's church, on Thursday. Miss B.
Sweeney, of Ebervale, was bridesmaid
and Corry Harvey, of Philadelphia, was
groomsman. After tho ceremony a
drive was enjoyed and a reception fol
lowed at the home of the bride.
John Philips and Maty A. Jonos, of
Drifton, were married Thursday even
ing in the English Baptist church by
Rev. E. C. Murphy.
She "Took Her Clothe* Hack Home."
Mrs. Alice Jones, of Parsons, went to
tho district attorney's office a few days
ago and took homo her trunks, which
had been in the custody of the county
detective since tho party left London.
Mrs. Jones was accompanied by her
husband and lie sat in the office as
she opened one of the trunks and re
moved therefrom some of Stephenson's
belongings. Stephenson's trunk is still
at tho district attorney's office and he
remains in the county jail. The cases
will bo brought before the grand jury
which meets this week.

LORE OF HALLOWE'EN.
ORIGIN OF MANY QUAINT OLD POPU
LAR CUSTOMS AND TRICKS.
It* Time-Honored Nut Crack and Snap
Apple N iyht an Occasion fur Merry
making, in Which Lovers Have Things
Their Own Way.
. The night of October 31, the eve or
vigil of Ali Saints (or All llallow'3 day.
November 1), is variously termed Hal
lowe'en Hallow even, Nutcrack niglit
and Snapapplc night. This niglit of ajl
nights in the year is the one when the
supernatural is rife, and spells, mischief
making elves and unseen agencies run
riot. While Saint Valentine's day is
also given over to love and lovers, yet
Hallowe'en is regarded tho best night of
all the year for divination. To discover
just what sort of husband or wife one is
to be, blest with enters into almost all
the youthful Hallowe'en practices.
FROM CKKKMONY TO SPORT.
The character of tho doings on Hal
lowe'en are much changed now from
those of olden days. Anciently they
used to partake more of ceremonious
belief; now the young people have turned
them into sport. The jests and tricks
which are practiced on this night are
no longer believed in seriously, but are
done just for sport, half hoping some
thing might come of them, for, you
know, "stranger things have happened."
lIOW THE NUT CHARM IS WORKED.
Of course the most common and most
peculiar of these matrimonial foretellings
is the roasting of nuts. Two nuts are
placed side by side and named for the
person trying and the peiTered lover or
loveress. If they burn quickly and
brightly it means sincerity and affection:
cracking and jumping away mean
inconstancy: and if they burn together
a happv marriage will be the result.
Another nut trial is to name two nuts
and then throw them into tho (ire, and
if one of the nuts should burst thai one
is not sincerely affectionate, but if it is
reduced to ashes a warm feeling is
betokened. Perplexity comes to the poor
maid whose two nuts both burn to ashes,
unless her feelings help her to give the
preference.
SN A I'AIM'LE NIGIIT DIVINATIONS.
Apples are in no wise second to nuts
as a means of divination on Snapapple
night. Who has not had the slightly
damp but certainly hilarious fun of
ducking for apples in a tub of water?
Tiny slits are often made in tho apples,
into which a small piece of paper is
introduced, on which is written the
names of the favored ones. Blank
pieces of paper mean a life of celibacy.
Then again the swinging of tho apple
paring over the left shoulder! Who lias
not tried that and been assured that the
uncertain shape it made was really the
favored initial? To placo two apple
seeds one on either eyelid, eacli named
for a lover, is another common practice.
The one that stays on longest is the
most desirablo. This has one advant
age, that your preference may slyly
help Facte along if it seem undecided by
winking. So much for our own familiar
sports.
That Nanticoke Strike.
After a suspension of operations for
four months the Susquehanna Coal Co.
last week made an attempt to resume
work at No. 6 colliery, Glen Lyon, but
only a few of the men reported for work
and after the filled cars which had been
standing in tho mine since the strike!
was inaugurated were run through the
breaker, the officials woro forced to
shut (htwn tho mine. The men seem to
bo still masters of the situation and
everything now points to a complete
tie-up of all the collieries of the com
pany in Nanticoke and Glen Lyon until
next spring, at least the company will
make no further efforts to settle the
trouble, according to statements by the
officials.
Many Meritorious Features.
In addition to many other meritorious
features. "O'Brien, the Contractor,"
which comes to the Grand next Monday
evening, has one of the very best singing
quartettes ever heard in a drama. Their
selections include the very latest up-to
date musical hits. Thoir execution and
rendering of their selections combine a
rare blending of harmony and melody
and has been a most enjoyable feature
in this high-class entertainment. A
play of nnuusal merit, full of heart
interest, a company of uniform excel
lence. bright comedy, beautiful scenery,
exceptionally beautiful drosses which
are worn by the ladies of this company,
all unite in making an evening's enter
tainment that will please most tlieatre
goers.

Our Ever Untiring Efforts
To Do Better.
To give our patrons the biggest pos
sible values for their money, is the key
of our great success. We are not satis
fied to stand still, but are forever forg
ing ahead, forever trying to make the
values bigger and the prices smaller.
We are continually scouring the mar
kets for the very best of dependable
merchandise, and buying, as wo do, In
immense quantities, we are enabled to
sell clothing as cheap as the average
merchant can buy.
This season we have been more active
than ever. Our grand array of Clothing
for Men, Hoys and Children proves that
it is the greatest assortment that has
over been shown to the purchasing pub
lic of this town. And we have been
farsightcd enough to anticipate the ad
vance all the clothing merchants are
complaining about and placed our
orders much earlier than usual. Wo
can, therefore, sell clothing at the old
prices, or make you a suit or overcoat
cheaper than any other tailor in the
region.
