DISAGREE ON NUMBER
OF HOURS OF WORK
(Operators and Miners Again at Logger-
heads In Pennsylvania.
PHILADELPHIA, Pa., April 4.—A dis
agreement between the mine operators
end miners today regarding the strike
commission's ruling on the number of
hours to constitute a day's work, resulted
In the closing of numerous collieries
throughout the anthracite coal region.
The greatest dissatisfaction was express
ed in the lower region and in Pottsville,
Bhamokin, Mahanoy City and contiguous
towns a majority of the mines were idle
part of the day. At some of the collieries
the men laid down their tools after they
had worked eight hours, and at others
they remained in the mines nine hours,
but refused to work ten hours when re
quested to do so by the superintendents.
The operators assert that they will pay
the men only for the actual time worked
and the miners claim this to be a viola
tion of the agreement.
Meetings of the local unions were held
and in a majority of cases the miners
decided to return to work Monday and
submit the question to joint conciliation
committees of operators and mine work
ers, as suggested by the commission. Of
ficials of the union as such are not per
mitted to interfere in the controversies.
Henry Ward Beecher's Spirit, "Widow's
Mite" Coin and a Medium.
BOSTON. Mass., April 4.—Dr. Richard
tary of the American
branch of the Society for Physical Re
rearch, has received a letter from Dr.
Isaac U. Funk, of New York, in regard
to the "widow's mite" coin, the posses
eion of which a spiritualistic medium re
vealed to Dr. Funk, by whom it had been
ten for nearly ten years.
Dr- Punk wished to get into communi-

cation with the spirit of Henry Ward
Beecher, through which the revelation in
regard to the coin was made, In order to
learn what disposition the preacher would
have made of it. He wrote to Dr. Hodg
son to find out if Mrs. Piper, the noted
medium, would assist in the case. Mr.
Hodgson expresses doubt of the genuine
ness of the original spirit message.
"Not that I doubt Dr. Funk's sincerity,"
said he, "but beyond that, there is the
much more difficult problem of discover
ing whether the message really oame from
a discarnate spirit, or was revealed by
telepathy through a living person. Though
Dr. Funk had forgotten about the coin,
and through his brother, whom he told
to return it, had forgotten, too, it is not
impossible that information regarding the
coin's location may have come from them,
they being unconscious of it. Or, more
possible still, it may have come from
somebody entirely ouside. Several people,
undoubtedly, hava known where that coin

tions from spirits you must first eliminate
all possibility of Interference from living
people, and in cases like this it is prac
tically impossible to do so. I had been
dealing- with Mrs. Piper for several years
before I was willing to admit that any of
her messages came from discarnate spir
its. I was sure that they came from liv
ing persons, telepathically. But finally I
was forced to abandon that hypothesis.
"If Mrs. Piper is used in connection
with this matter It is net at all sure that
definite answers to our inquiries will be
obtained. It is just as if I gave some
body the name of a living person whose
whereabouts were unknown and asked to
have him traced up. It could not be done
In a minute. I have got to find some

Executive Committee of Min

in December in This City
Instead of Minneapolis.
The next annual convention of the
Minnesota Educational association will
be held in St. Paul in spite of the vote
taken at the last convention in favor
of holding the next meeting in Minne
apolis. At the executive committee
meeting of the Minnesota Educational
association, held yesterday at the Com
mercial club. Dr. S. G. Smith, in behalf
of the Commercial club of St. Paul ex
tended a cordial invitation to the as
sociation to hold its next meeting in St.
Paul, as has been the custom for a
number ot year.
W. G. Nye, representing 1 the Com
mercial club of Minneapolis, extended
an invitation to the association to meet
in that city. There was some discus
sion, but it was decided to hold the
convention in St. Paul, at least this
year, to avoid possible conflict. The
headquarters of the convention will be
at the Windsor hotel, and the dates
will be Dec. 29, 30 and 31.

Made over on a change of food is
rather a fascinating experience.
Sounds like fiction, but an employe of
the Anaconda Copper Co. of Anaconda,
Mont., had just that experience, being
cured on Grape-Nuts.
"For several years I was so run down
from indigestion and improper food
that I had to resign a $125.00 a month
position in Chicago," he says. "I was
in such a bad condition that if I stoop
ed over the sour food came boiling up
into my throat and out of my mouth.
"I lost nine months valuable time,
and three of Chicago's best physicians
said I must die. I weighed about 140
pounds, which is skeleton weight for
me. So I resigned myself to my fate
and went home to the country to die.
It was there a cousin introduced me
to Grape-Nuts and new life. I threw
all my medicines away and at the end
of two weeks' use of Grape-Nuts had
to admit that I had gained 4 pounds.
In the next few weeks I ate absolutely
nothing but Grape-Nuts and pure rich
cream and gained 18 pounds.
"I began to take interest in the
events of the world again. From this
point my recovery has been rapid and
today I am physically in the best con
dition I ever was in my life. I had no
trouble to get a position with the Ana

stated that of the $100,000 appropriated
by the legislature for the Minnesota

probably would, be Rivm for the edu^

most important features of the state.

opposed to spending our money for
such purposes. We have already been

It was finally decided that the com
mittee in charge of the exhibit be in

necessary to ask for $5,000 from the

So dense was the smoke when the
firemen reached the burning building
that it was some time before they

What caused the blaze is unknown.
The fire had evidently been smoulder
