vegetation it would require an average rate of fourteen tons
nearly per year per acre.
Second, from all appearances the plants from which this coal
was formed were largely thin and puny; there being no indication
of those large, tropical trees which are usually found in coal
Third, we learn from the fossils found immediately under and
over the coal that it was formed from marine plants, which never
grow large and which grow very slow. Novice.
Thurber, Tex., Feb. 16, 1894.
To The Miner:
As a citizen of Texas and a resident of Thurber, I believe the
miners have found one who will show to the outside world that
the miners of this camp are not as they are represented to be—
by some who have no use for them, except to get the almighty
dollar. If those fellows have not cut their eye-teeth by this time
they are in the rear rank—in the rear guard, and some of them
will think so in the approaching election. They know their
friends and they know their enemies.
1 implore my fellow-craftsmen to accept the advice of "Iris"
to load clean, merchantable coal, and not destroy any prop-
erty belonging to the company. As honest men it is your duty
to protect your employer's property.
Mr. Editor, in your issue of last week I read an artical from
"Dynamite,'" stating that if No. 5 had her air courses brushed
up and the entries in shape she could flop her wings and crow.
I heard a well-posted miner say. since reading the article, that all
good miners keep their roads in good order.
I am informed from authentic authority that you will give space
in your instructor (The Miner) to those desiring to say some-
thing regarding mines and mining. If such be the case, allow
me to start the ball rolling by asking "Dynamite" one question
regarding the gases that are met with in coal mines: If 250
cubic feet of carbonic-oxide transpires in five minutes would it
take less time or more time for an equal volume of nitrogene to
transpire, and why ? 1 rapper.

There is not a more level headed business man in the state of
Texas than Martin Casey of Fort Worth; he is observant, iutel-
ligent and shrewd. He visited our town last week and told us
that he did not have the slightest conception of the extent ol
the coal trade nor of the business being done. Mr. Casey is
the founder of the Fort Worth Brewing company, and all say
that the beer made by them is not, and cannot be excelled.
The artesian water used in the manufacture of their beer is
taken from wells about 1200 feet in depth, and is pronounced to
be by far the best water used in the manufacture of beer, in
this or any other country; we expect at some time to see this
Brewing company as large as any in the country, and exporting
beer to South America through deep water ports in the Gulf of
Mexico of our own Lone Star state, and also expect that the
well earned reputation of Fort Worth beer, will take train load
after train load through El Paso and Laredo into old Mexico.
Pluck, perseverance and thorough, correct business principles

Washington, D. C.. February 3, 1894.
To The Miner:
You are entirely correct on the money question. When ac-
cumulations take the form of bonds it increases itself by increas-
ing the value of money and shrinking the value of everything
else. The accumulations of past ages are now in the hands of an
international (Gold Bond) syndicate, who are now controlling
the governments of the world to put the world on the gold basis.
Shrink the money of the world one-half, give us an indefinite
period of falling prices, during which time labor will suffer and
all enterprise be unprofitable, while confiscating the property of
the world and enslaving mankind to a bondholding oligarchy.
We are overwhelmed with calls for literature. The failure of
the repeal bill to restore good times has caused a good deal of
thinking among the business people; they are organizing and
will be heard from next fall.' Sincerely yours,
J. M. Devine,
Secretary American Bimetallic League.
