Country Life Iu America. The coal dock of the C. M. iV St. I'aul railroad built here during the past two months is one of the most improved hoisting and loading ap paratus on the line. Thn structure resembles very much the pockets in the shaft houses at the mines. The whole structure is about .M) feet in height over all and contains two px k- ets, or chutes, each of these having a capacity of NO tons of coal. These pockets are built on either side of a runway that contains an endless bucket arrangement for the hoisting of the coal out of the pit Isdow. The jxieket stands on a concrete "ttment sur rounding a pit dug into the earth to a depth of about fifteen feet. The end less chain runs from a point in alniut the centre of this pit over roller lear- Ndelphla Times i fr i i l m .i i . ings. iuv Biues oi me pu taper to wards the centre so that as the buckets take the coal from below the remainder of the coal in the pit slides down to the centre. The bucket chain is pro pelled by a large gasoline engine which stands in a little house at the base of the structure. One man is all the attendance that is necessary to coal np engines with this apparatus and he can do it In about a tenth of the time that two men could with the tierrick that has lieen is use for the last decade all over the system. The coal is hauled in ore cars and a dozen or more cars are left on the siding that loads to the pocket. As a new supply is wanted the attendant drops a car down over the pit and unfastens the trapdoors. Tho coal drops out into the pit Isdow. He then goes in and starts the engine and in alnt five minutes the whole carload of coal is in ttoekets above. The buckets dump themselves into a lift I" slide that conducts the coal into the chutes at the top. When one chute is full th" silde is shifted so that the coal will run into the other one. When an eilglne comes up to lie coaled the temlei is stopped under the apron that ' leads from the Itottom of the chute and the coal i n laesed and runs out, into I he bill in the tender. It lakes but a remarkably short time to c al up an engine by this method. In on (lie (irniinil Floor.
