OUR ENORMOUS COAL PILE. Production Has Increased 400 Per Cent. in a Generation. The production of coal in 1012 reached the great total of . U34.4Uti.oH0 short tons valued at the mines at .J!).r),Im,071, ac cording to' a statement by Edward W, Parker, coal, statistician, just issued by the United (states geological survey This year the report on the coal in dustry of the United States begins the fourth decade in which coal statistics have been published annually by the geo logical survey. In 1882, the first yen of this period, the total coal production of the United States had reached what was then considered about high-water mark 103551,180 short tons, in 1B1Z the production of bituminous coal alone in the state of Pennsylvania exceeded that figure by nearly CO per cent, and the combined production of bituminoua coal and anthracite in Pennsylvania in 1912 was 2 times the total production of the United States in 1882. lhe to tal coal production of the United States in 1912 was more than five times that of 1882. In 1882 the United States was a poor second among the coal-producing countries of the world, (jreat uritain having an output exceeding that of this country by nearly 70 per cent. The United States supplanted Great Britain as the premier coal producing country in 18119, and in 1912 it was as far ahead of Great Britain as that country was aheaflt of the United States in 1882, The United States at present is contributing 40 per cent of the world's supply of coal and is consuming over 99 per cent of its own production. All Records Broken in 1912. In 1912 the production of coal in the United States not only surpassed all pre vious records, but the average value per ton exceeded that of any normal yea m the 33 years for which statistics are available. There has been only one year when prices generally were higher than in 1912, and that waa 1903, the year of the fuel famine. The gain in output in 1912 over 1911 was 38,090,454 short tons and the in crease in value was $09,040,860. The production of bituminous coal increased from 405,907,059 short tons to 450,104, 982 tons, a cain of 44.197,923 tons, with an increase of (!fl,H07,620 in value. The decreased . production of anthracite, amounting to 6,102,409 short tons, was due entirely to the suspension of min ing in April and May, when practically the entire region was idle. The factors which contributed to the increased out put of bituminous coal were (1). the revival in the iron and steel industry, which stimulated production in the east ern states, the coal made into coke show ing, alone, an increase of nearly 6,000,000 tons; (2) bumper crops of grain and other agricultural product, which gave prosperity to the farming communities of the middle West; (3) decreasing sup plies of natural gas and fuel oil in the mid-continent field and their consequent lessened competition with coal from the southwestern states; (4) increased con sumption by railroads and in nearly all lines of manufacturing; (5) activity in the mining and smelting of the precious and semi -precious metals in the Rocky Mountain and Pacific states. These fac tors combined made the year 1912 one of the rare prosperous years in the mining of bituminous coaL Increased Production in 21 States. Of the 27 states in which coal min ing may be considered to be conducted on a commercial basis, there were 21 in which the output of 1912 showed an increase over 1911, and in all but two of the important states the increase in value was greater than the increase in tonnage. In the production of bituminous coal Pennsylvania in 1912 showed an increase of 17,804,231 short tons. WVst Virginia's increase in 1912 was 6,955,107 tons. Illi nois increased its production by 6,206,108 tons, Ohio by 3,768,741 tons, Kentucky by 2,44018 tons, Indiana by 1.1W4,33 tons, Alabama by 1,079,179 tons, Virginia by 981,971 tons, Colorado by 820,441 tons. and Jvansas by K07,4o4 tons. 1914 u 0 I t mi mtw ui iwm wit mi nnui n Mil If II WALTON'S VERMONT REGISTER BUSINESS DIRECTORY oimu TKJtn own v tOR f aRMHl USNB AND- .fRQftSSlONAt MtN. ...!

CABOT ' Mr. and Mrs. Rowland R. Preston of Monessen, Pa., have been visiting the past week at the borne of Mrs. Preston's mother, Mis. Martha M. Stone. In Connection with West Rutland's Beer Party Murder. Rutland, Aug. 13. In connection with the fatal stabbing at West Rutland Sat urday night, which resulted in the death yesterday of Joseph Stalkus, six men have been arrested in the charge of breach of the peace, in addition to Peter Jakabouis, who is charged with the murder. The six are as follows: John I.ipniski, Paul I.udakaski, Tony Mil kitus, tStanislaw Mikitus, Joseph Bonos -ki and Joseph Botkus. It is understood that, although these men are supposed to have been at I.ik niski's house just prior to the stabbing and possibly in the party which partic ipated in the brawl, they professed ig norance of the whole affair at the inves tigation Monday. About the only evi dence the prosecution has against Jak-, abouis, who is alleged to be the prin cipal in the crime, is the dying state ment of Stalkus, who told the officers that it was Jakabouis who did the knife work. PLAINFIELD. Dr. Hudson will be at the PlainGeU office Thursday, August 14. What One Boy Who Has Been There Thinks of It. Julio Francis Ganmuzzo, a lad from W'ebsterville, who is at the state indus trial school at Vergennes, at the annual graduation exercises this year, gave an esav on "What the V. I. S. JIae Meant To Me," from which we quote the fol lowing: Most of. the boys of this school have been victims of circumstance; that is of poor heredity, or poor environment or both. What can a boy of eleven years do? I don't see what else a boy can do except steal something. "I was brought 110 in a village in Washington county, Vermont. Wlien I was five years of age my mother died, I think some of the other boys of this school know what it is to lose a mother. I had three sisters and one brother. My oldest sister took care of the house for about a year, when my father then mar ried again, a woman from the old country. "I used to skip school to hunt up what I had to eat. I was sent for more than a dozen times for staying out of school bv my school teachers. "The officers soon got tired of going after me, so they told me they would send me to the ergennes industrial school the next time I stayed out. The next time came about a week after they told me. The cause of the next time was that I was forced to stay out to get what I needed to eat. "The Vergennes industrial school, a high sounding name, any way, I thought. It sounds as though I should have enough to eat and drink and still go to school ; thus I reasoned with myself. There was nobody to tell me that had dishonestly stolen or to be sorry when I came here. So when with the officer I arrived here, I had not a pang of regret, for I saw that the boys all looked well fed and clothed and apparently did not have to steal to get the necessities of life. I soon found out that I was right. The boys are healthy and happy and in addition, the officers seemed to care little for them. This was new to me for I scarce ly remember the time when I had been shown any personal attention. "This place has been a great help to me in giving me new ideals by which to shape my life. I never saw one of those big fat Bibles until I came here. I never hardly knew what was in a Bi ble. I have learned not only that there lived a perfect man about two thousand years ago, but also that man, our Christ, I cares for me poor; miserable, sinful me. I do not think I am the only boy in this school who never saw one of those fat Bibles before he came here, either. Hoys, that Bible as all right and you never waste your time wlien vou read it. "I found here, too, a standard of the value of time. For the first time 1 worked; work is a great remedy, it keeps you out of all kinds of mischief. Here I have to work when I am told and play when it is playtime. Most of us had too much time to loiter around the street corners, to fall into the com panionship of older boys and to learn to smoke and do wrong. When I was home smoked unconcernedly as though bent on ruining my life just as fast as I could. I smoked so often that it soon gave me a slight heart irouDie, irom which 1 have not wholly recovered, aow know lust how, through the absorp tion of the nicotine, through' the mem brane of the lungs, the blood of the whole system is effected; because it is the blood that feeds our muscles and brain and whole frame. If the blood is poisoned, naturally we cannot be strong and efficient. "Although most of us boys and myself of this school have been more or less the innocent victims of circumstances and have made mistakes which we knew no better than to make or perhaps were driven to it nevertheless, now, through the influence of the school, we have been given a better, clearer view of life and we now can make men of ourselves if we reform. '1 stopped smoking Just a little while before I came here because my heart pained me. When one boy would offer me a cigarette if I refused it he would turn around and tell his companions that I wanted to be a little angel and waa afraid to smoke. It cut deeply to have the fellows laugh at me but I am glad I was a little angel in that case. I wish all the boys would try to be little an gels in that respect and not smoke or drink, because tney win De me oetter men for it. "Reform is the word. Two letters, r-e. but they include the active, aggressive determination on our own part to do, as we know by our newly acquired m formation, what is right. To form means to shape. It requires a skillful hand to form a beautiful vessel out of shapeless clay. We, who have had that moulding by delicate, skillful hands, but have been rouehly thrown together and allowed to withstand fearful blows as best we could. We must reform this vessel of our bodies and minds accord- iner to the litfht iriven to us here. Vte must make men of ourselves in spite of early environment, and this home wo have here will help us." RUSHED TO HOSPITAL. C. Gregg, Hurt in Wilmington Auto Accident, Has Little Chance. Brattleboro. Auc 13. J. C." Gregg of Pawtucket, R.
