From another Corner of Columbia co., there comes a Story of another discovery of Coal which if it proves to turn out in paying quantities will prove a Boon to tie entire South Side. The Coal has been discovered in roaring Creek township on the main Ville Mountain by George m. Craig and a prospector Patrick Moran. And the Story that is Back of this discovery is at once interesting Aud convincing of the ability of Moran As a prospector. Several months ago Moran and Craig were driving Over Mainville Mountain when Moran noticing its formation stated to his companion that there was Coal to be found in that Basin. To succeeded in getting Craig interested Aud they leased Over two Hundred acres of land lying Between the mine Gap Road and tie Mainville Road in roaring Creek township. Several men were employed Aud the work went quietly along until a depth of perhaps two Hundred feet had been reached pick Aud shovel Aud dynamite being used. After a number of weeks hard work they struck the vein and have found it to contain Coal of an excellent Quality. A number of people in that Vicinity have already burned it and declare it to be the very Best they Ever had in their stoves. The Shaft will be sunk yet deeper to ascertain the depth of the vein and if it be found to be in paying quantities Steps will at once be taken to mine it of an extensive scale. Moran claims there is Coal in All the land lying that Side of the Mountain. The Mountain dips Low into the farm Laud in that Section Aud a number of tie Farmers have become Verv much excited Over the Prospect of becoming Rich. When Craig Anil Norman started their operations All were sceptical and derided the idea that there was Coal but now since they have proved Thore is Coal there All ate anxious to reap some of the benefits should it prove to be in paying quantities.

Without any sign of approaching dissolution she passed away Tho very suddenness adding greatly to the Shock. In addition to her husband Tho deceased is survived by Oue son Charles Morgan of Wheeling w. Va., Anil two daughters the i sees Lucy and Hutli Morgan of Kingston. Workmen will approve of it. Among the improvements in Tho Borough contemplated by Council for the coming summer is Oue which will be most highly appreciated by a Largo number of employees at the Keading Iron works. The plan is in doing away with tie Ca Al Bridges to remove Oue of the divisions of tin Mill Street Bridge used As a sidewalk to Mahoning Creek at the foot of Chestnut Street.
