Feb. 10, 1903. To While away last week it waft our pleasure to visit the little town of Wilton on the Washburn Road north of Bismarck, and ia company with a number of oth ers to makeatrip through the eoal mines located near that place. Wilton is located a fe\y miles east of the Missouri River and oa a gently rolling prairie,fitted equal ly for farming or grazing. The mines are about a mile east of the town addon a scarcely noticeable rise of land. The entrance to the mine is an oblique instead of a vertical shaft down which one walks to a depth of sixty-five feet before arriving at'the mine level. The coal is hauled up this shaft by electricity in cars hold ing about 3000 pounds and dump ed into cars for shipment. About two hundred twenty-five men are employed and from five hun dred to eight hundred tons of coal is mined per day. The work of cutting and drilling is all done with machines driven by electricity furnished by giant dynamoes at the surface. Apart of the interior is electric lighted. The miue is free from water and the air is kept pure by huge elec tric fans at the top of the air shafts. Our guide told us that there were about twenty-five miles of tunnel and we felt after walking a half hour that we bad been through the most of it. The coal sells at one dollar per ton at tbe mine and seems, to be of a very superior quality.. In stead of being loose and sbaly it is quite like the eastern coal and is far ahead of the lignite sold here last fall. Representa tive Dickinson of Ayr who was in the party said after coming in forceful contact with it that it is a little the hardest stuff he had ever triedTb sit on. We give in this issue a list of the patrons of the rural free de livery routes as evidenced by the boxes delivered. There are, without doubt, a number who will become patrons of the coutes vyho have not yet erected their mail boxes, We were surprised to learn that only eleven boxe* had been put up on the east route. One of the requirements of the department is thafe "there should be about sixty patrons of each in order to continue the service, and wc fear that unless more boxes are erected the serv ice will be discontinued. Farm ers, the free delivery is a good thing. Do not allow it '.o be tak en away from you by your failure to comply with the requirements. -a NOTICE fc" my Friends and Patrons. On and after Nov. 1st, 100:',, we Ehall change our present method of doing business, and instead of doing a credit busi cess, as we have done in tho past, we shall sell strictly for cash. Some wise men have puid that a business could not be run in Hope on a cash ba&ie. I think it can, and shall so con duct this business in the fuj ure. 1 can, aDd will, sell goods cheaper than any man can st'll them on time, thereby making this business profitable to borh my customers and myself. To every person who has patronised me in the past (whether they have paid me or not,) I extend tbe right.hand ot good fellow ship, and solicit your patroongo in the future. In conclusion, 1 would say that this step hir not been taken without mature reflection and due consideration. It will probably offend some of my customers to be refusal credit, and if I could, I would rather such a thine would DOL occur. But I have been unwil lingly forced into the position vvherelmust either sell goodsfor cash or go outof business. 1 prefer to stay in business. A re duction will be made upon all (roods in stock on the 1st day of Nov., 1902, and remember, I will sell you goods as cheap as anyone, but I MUST have the cash. Respectfully. E.
