Here we j  found good wash rcorns and individual  lockers for clean clothing, for which *���������  slight fee is charged. These are s o  well liked that the space is .being, doubled. Comfortable bunk houses, dining  roowis etc. are here. -X.y:  The lamp room in a  se'perxte   building was of greatest iuter#t to us.        It  contained the test box.    This is   filled  with fire damp and each    lamp   before  going out is tested for safety.       If     a  lamp is defective, it explodes,, if   good,  it invariably   goes out.      Plenty     o f  lamps are kept in reserve.    The lamps  are automatically lit by a spring    a*id  fuse.    This fuse will light the lamp 50--  times without removing the - chimney i^--  Electric motors are used for   pulling  mine cars.  GET A NEWS ADD  IT PAYS!!  J  7  J.
