been for many weeks, and they
were all spending tbe'e money
too. The reputation of Harts-

from miles around to do their

folks in Hartshorne to never

individuals, but of assemblies as
well. Town progress was never
attained by such a spirit.
A fellow dropped in our office
the other day. and as soon as he
realized where he was, said:

DISTRICT INSPECTOR CLARK
Has Just Issued His Report Rela-
tive to the Explosion at
The Hou*r of Kupprnh«un*l
Following is the report of Dis-
trict Mine Inspector .Martin Clarlj
as to the cause of the explosion
in Hartshorne Mine No. 8 on
the morning of October 21, 1909
About 8:00 o'clock iii Thurs
day morning October 21st, 1909,
at No. s Mine of the Rock Island
Coal Mining Co., there was an cx-
ploison of fire-damp in the 11th
hast entry, in slope No. 26, which
killed ten men and injured one.
rile Fire Moss Dan Hughes' He-
port Hook showed that he had
found sonic gas in the entry and
air course and alsoi n room No.
Fin- Boss Hamilton, also said
that Hughes remarked in the
I' ire Boss Lamp Room, that No.
18 room "was loaded" and that
Hughes took sonic canvas with
him when he returned to remove
the gas from No. 18 room.
When the stopping were re-
placed and sufficient air circula-
ting to eleart lie room of gas,
Chief Inspector Ilanraty nnd my-
sell with a committee of miner's
and also Mr, Win. Cameron, Fed-
eral Supervisor of mines, and
tin- mine officials made a
thorough examination of all the
places that were affected by the
explosion. We first examined
the entry and air-course. A his-
sing noise, such as is made by a
pretty strong feeder could be
heard in the direction of the
lace of the lower entry and gas
was detected with a safety lamp
back as tar as the last break-
through. At this point readings
were taken with two different
anemometers and both inatru-
meets showed a velocity above
three hundred feet perm inute
and a total volume of over six
thousand feet per minute The
upper entry also had s ie gas
'h<> high side and a pit car
was standing close to the face in
position for loading, which would
indicate that the miner was about
'.<> startt o work. Room No. 21.
is the last room turned. In No.
18 room a car was in position to
be loaded and a shovel, pick and
sledge, and also a pit lamp and
cap were, found between the car
and coal face, which isvery good
proof that the miner had started
to work. A piece of brattice
cloth, such as was reported mat
the fire boas took with him, was
tounil tautened to some props- in
the usual manner for directing
the air current to the face of the
workingp laces to keep them
clear of smoke and to remove
any gas that may have accumu-
When a working place is found
by the. fire boss when making an
examination in the morning, to
contain gas in dangerous quanti-
ties the law requires him to pre-
pare a dead-line at all the en-
trances to that part, of the mine,
and permit no one to go beyond
them until the danger is remov-
ed. In this case judging from
the distance that the flame and
the force extended, from the ini-
tial point of the explosion, in
my opinion the proper place to
have placed the dead-line would
be near the slope at the entrance
to the entry. We found no evi-
dence to indicate that this was
done, neither could we find any
where in the rooms or entries i
dead-line mark. As the fire boss
when found was at. a point
about 12n feet outside the sly,
it appeal's as though lie consul
ered the place as safe and hai
turned them over to the miners
and bad started to leave that
part of the mine, when the ex-
plosion took place.
From this, it is evident that
fire boss Hughes, after putting
up the canvass in Room No. 18
lid not take the precaution of
examining all the places through
liicli the gas had to pass with
the air current, before permit-
the miners to go into th
I am thoroughly satisfied that if
this precaution had been taken
that there would not have been
any explosion and that the lives
of ten persons would not have
been sacrificed by negligence.

One of the primary teachers
was naving sonic trouble in get
ting one of her pupils to read
distinctly. She soon found the
cause of the difficulty to be a
large chew of gum in the child's
mouth, "children." she said, "we
don t chew gum in school." In
a few minutes one of the tiny
tots came up, holding up
gum saying. "Teacher. 1

The report of the csconil month
of Haileyville Public School is
the best record the school has
made in the past four years. The
following is the report Aver-
age daily attendance for the
month, males 1114: females 146, tn
tal 28(t. The per
atlee: Males 91: females 89. av-
erage percentage of attendance.
9(1. The tardiness for the second
month is about 25 per cent less
than the tardiness for the first
month. This record shows that
the teachers are putting forth
their very best efforts, and that
their efforts are bringing results.

Patronize State Banks
There are two reasons why Oklahomans
should do business with State Banks
FIRST—Because a land owner can use his land
as a basis ot security and back his money
wants with a low rate of interest.
SECOND—Because the Oklahoma laws protect the
depositee by a guarantee which husbands
hiv money while on deposit and makes
the banks contribute to a fund out ot
which, in case of failure, he is to be paid.
