This trend for the country as a whole continued into the week ending May 17, the department wen on to show, B.155.000 tons being mined throughout the country during that week. This was a drop of 130.000 tons or 1.6 per cent from the 8.285,000-ton output the week before. For the first two days of the week beginning May 19, the American Railway association stated, car loadings of coal amounted to 53,873 cars, a slight increase from 53,426 cars which were loaded the first two days the previous week.

Z., May 27.—Bqy Scout Paul Siple of Erie, Pa., youngest member of the Byrd Antarctic expedition, has too many other things to occupy his time to bother much about girls. "Girls?" he repeated, when asked his opinion. "Shucks! I have the highest regard and admiration for nice girls generally, but have never thought much about being in love, being busy with other things.". 'In that way the tall, husky youth who was chosen from among the thousands of Scouts in the United States to accompany Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd to the Antarctic, disposed of rumors connecting him with various alleged romances which have developed since his trip two years ago. Admiral Byrd and other members of the expedition were unanimous in praising Siple as a good scout and a willing worker during the long stay In the South Pole region. Siple celebrated his 21st birthday at Rock Barrier, but he still appears quite boyish with his wide smile and his manifest interest in birds, fishes, motorboats and radio inventions. Siple Is not yet certain about the future. He may resume his Inter- SPRING GARDENER. FINISHES THE SEASON OM GOIFGREENS!
