The Advent of a Hilly Days and chillier nights of autumn when overcoats Are comfortable brings one face to face with the fuel problem in a Way that is Apt to inspire a feeling Akin to desperation. The Householder Lias All along been buoyed up by the Hope that the differences Between the Miner and operator would be settled before the Advent of cold weather. But the time has now arrived when fire becomes a necessity and the question what an to going to Burn of Trudes itself upon us. It is a fact that in More than one household in this City tin Hearthstone is cold because the Coal bin is empty. River Coal and Washor Coal Are unsatisfactory and very expensive make shifts. If there were any Hopes of a speedy termination of the strike however they might offer some solution of the difficulty hut the operators declare that they have no intention of yielding and Tho miners say they Are prepared for an All Winters fight. River Coal and the Washor article would hardly prove a circumstance if it came to taking the Placo of All Tho hard Coal usually required for Domestic purposes. Clearly then it is Wise to look around for some other Supply. How will soft Coal Burn this is a question that Many persons Are asking. Several have already tried it and the results Are described As not satisfactory. It has the Merit of being comparatively cheap and although its use is accompanied with much dirt and smoke it will not to rejected without a fair trial. Soft Coal is in general use in Ohio and in Large portions of our own state and is burned in cellar furnaces in grates in Cook and heating stoves. An experienced builder of this City previously in business in Tho soft Coal regions stated yesterday that the chimneys of houses there Are constructed precisely As in this Section which makes it Plain that if soft Coal Burns there it should also Burn Here. Evidently All that is needed to get Good results is some experience in managing the fire. Although no one will probably want to use soft Coal except As a last resort it is a rather comforting thing to reflect upon that we have it to fall Back upon.

The persons in this City who have interested themselves in this Enterprise have been waiting for Tho bricks from Ohio but All their doubts As to the value of the shale Deposit Are set at rest by the favourable report of the Ohio firms As Well As the Fine appearance of the bricks. The work of getting ready to begin operations in the Spring will soon Start and tin Plant will to erected within a few Mouths.

The chief of police monday night was kept Busy looking after Small fires built about the streets for the purpose of getting rid of leaves and waste matter of other sorts. The chief considers that these tires Are in most cases wholly unnecessary and As night approaches especially a source of great danger. Such fires on the streets Are frequent enough at any season but As autumn approaches the falling leaves afford ail excuse to Small boys for keeping up an almost constant Blaze filling the air with smoke and unpleasant a it Quot a i is necessary at an v ii inv is Yunu a lire in the Street it should be in charge of some one of mature judgment capable of taking care of it and not left in the bands of children to be used As a play thing. Such is the View of the chief of police and lie declares that the Bon fire nuisance must cease or be kept within reasonable Bounds. Putting no Rural mail boxes.

Gurry who found it necessary to insert several stitches. Want to close at 8 o clock. The period of Early closing being at an end the stores now remain open during the evening. While it seems that there is no attempt to be uniform ill closing few of the stores remain open longer than eight of clock. Up to that hour Oliero seems to be a Good Deal of business some nights More than others but enough of the whole to justify keeping open. Several of the merchants would like to make eight o clock the closing hour for the whole year. They see but Little excuse for keeping open later and believe such a move would have the sympathy and support of the Public. They say that about All that is now required is for the clerks to fall in with the movement selecting eight of clock As the hour for closing the year around. They see no objection to closing at six of clock hut expert i knee they say has shown that Early closing cannot he made popular in Danville. They merely ask that tin next Best thing he done and the hour of eight be selected. 1uj.

The Coal Metropolis nine has been doing some Good playing in the Region but Here they will hide in the Tail grass for Danville is going to astonish the nation with its great combination. Connie Mark is expected hero to pick out material for his Pennant winning athletics of next season. The Rumor is unfounded. A Rumor has gained considerable currency about town during the last few Days to tin effect that the blast Furnace hero belonging to the Danville Bessemer company has been 1 used by a Philadelphia firm and will soon he put into operation. This i it an old Story which periodically bobs up in this City in the present instance it found Many who were inclined to believe there was some truth in it owing to a companion Rumor which represented that the same firm had leased a Large tract of or Laul in dutch Valley from which to it teed the Furnace.

It is True the Bessemer company has the blast Furnace advertised hut there an 110 negotiations on foot to justify the above store it Mugo for a or Tyor in a Cao. F Grade to re la the new pavement Laid Aboc during the present summer been instrumental in bringing to jets of a grades Quot into disc there is a Lack of uniformity True a new Merit often not aug several inches above the Ore adjoin ing although the latter May hav hem Laid within a comparatively recent Date.
