Coal digging in the River Here which has been sue a a important Industry a Luis us the Sumi Iier practically closed j for the season yesterday Aud the two i Irge Coal diggers operated by Hiram Ruch and his Sou George Ruch left for Northumberland where they will enter the dry Dock for repairs which Are very much needed after the season of hard work put in at Danville. There is a flood of seven an a half feet of the rior and this together with the probability that slush ice will soon begin to run induced to. Ruch to return Home while Tho conditions were favourable. Or. Ruch collected together All his Flat Aud Row boats and As Tho two Coal diggers with these in Tow lifted their anchors and dropped Down Stream the collection of Craft presented the appearance of a miniature Fleet. There were four Coal dredges operating in the River Here during the summer. Two of which still remain Here hut Are Idle. The amount of Coal extracted from the River at Danville it Lur my the summer has broken All former records. A fair estimate places the average of Coal taken from the River i Here at Twenty tons daily. This during the summer has amounted to an Normous aggregate which was sold to Tho the structural tubing works Standard electric Light company and the Hanover brewing company. As autumn approached the Coal seemed to improve in Quality Aud was pronounced first class. Mam i the speedometer indicates the Speed attained Pei hour and the number of Miles travelled giving the daily and the season run. The Ordinary Model records the Speed up to sixty Miles per hour while a special scale Cau he made to indicate one Hundred Miles per hour. The indicator registers a seasons run of ten thousand Miles Aud repeats. The daily trip registers Oue Hundred Miles and Cau he set Back at will. There Are three Points claimed for the its own either of which gives it a preference Over any other device of the kind of the Market the most important is that it will Register on a lower milage than any Oiler indicator it Lias Ijelu subjected to a very severe test and has been found to Register at the rate of two Miles per hour with absolute accuracy the test with the same Gratifying results was carried from two Miles up to sixty Miles per hour. Another valuable Point of the Speed meter is a device for stopping the Speed baud at any required time Aud showing the exact Speed attained at that moment. By this a a Stop when an automobile is held up by an officer for exceeding the Speed limit All controversy As to the exact rate the machine was travelling will be settled by a glance at the speedometer. Another Point of Merit lies in the adjustable bracket by which the Speed recording instr Mufit is fastened to the dashboard. By Means of this bracket it is adjusted and held at any inclination before the Driver. The speedometer line All other devices of the kind is operated by a flexible Shaft connected with the automobile wheel. The bracket As Well As the speedometer is the invention of a. R. Dudley and l. A. Gree Leaf two Young men who Are in Danville at present looking after the manufacturing. The Star motor meter co. Ltd., is composed of the two inventors above named no. No. Dudley father of no. R. Dudley who is president of the concern Aud no. H. Hitchler Well known hereabouts who is Secretary and treasurer. The Compau at present is Busy perfecting tools and it will he a month or so later before any of speedometers will be of the Market. The speedometer is protected by twelve distinct . Dudley and Gree Leaf Aro the inventors of a valuable clock meter and other Speed recording and time recording devices the manufacture of which will he taken up in due time at the local factory. Tho clock records the time of Day Aud the number of Miles travelled and is the first clock Metor invented which by actual test keeps reliable time no matter what rate of Speed is attained or How rough Are the roads traversed. The clock is provided with a Patent adjustable escapement. The Patent regulates the depth of the pinions so As to overcome Jar and vibration. Discie Teut Adver patronage of no harm in trying.
