Aged Iron Mines Are Again Being Worked Suffern, N. Y. -- Operations in the historical Gannon Iron mines near Sloatsburg and MldvaJe, after a shut-down of more than twenty years, have been resumed and ore Is again being extracted there. It was from thene mines, said to be amoug the oldest In America, that ore wan taken for the manufacture of artillery In the Revolutionary war and later In tlie Civil war. The Iron In the huge chain strung across- the Hudson river from West Point to Cold Spring, that blocked the British Sect In the Revolutionary war, was made from ore taken from these mines. Oru was taken from there in large quantities during the Clv)l war aod transported to Cold Spring, where It was made into cannon by the Parrot Gun Works, known as tho \YcBt 'Point Foundry. "BÂ«U OF mm MEN'S SHOES" HOLDS ODD RELICS Storage Placo for'Effect* of Dead Soldiers and Sailors Whoso Heirs Are Unknown. Washington.--Wlttiout a doubt one of the most Interesting government offices in Washington to some people, If they knew about It, would be what the' sxperts call the "personal effects room." Mora popularly known BB the ""bureau of dead men's shoes," It Is Indeed such n. bureau, for hero arc storÂ«l the strictly personal properties of jiersons under government protection who havÂ« died without leaving Jegn! heirs or whose heirs cannot be found. In most cases they were American soldiers and sailors who died In fqrelgn lands or on the high seas. Bat the collection also Includes the prop- ertj of, soldiers who died In soldiers' homes, and of German spies and others. This "bureau," the.work of which consists of examining, marking, labeling, cataloging, nnd filling tho ob- jecfa received, Is housed 5n the old pension building. At the present time more than a dozen steel eases are used for the filing, and they nre crammed to the limit with sealed packages. Once the filing Is complete, the "bureau" begins Ita efforts to find tha heirs. In every case everything possible Is done to find some relative--a parent, brother, slater, wife, or child. A single glance Into any of the many packages proves how great their value would be to loved ones, if they could oaly be reached. But Intrinsically the* have small value. Yet the world's greatest government spends Itf time and energies collecting, label- In?, and distributing these "priceless" treasures to their rightful owners. Government employees comb the whole globe In their efforts to find the heirs, no matter how trivial the value of the property In question. Whether It Is a faded love letter, a lock of hair, a picture, or what not, Dncle Sara makes the same efforts In every case to search out the heirs. Our consuls In foreign countries who at* under the State department handle the affalra and personal effects of those persona who die abroad. If the h?!rs'cannot be found the property Is sent to tho "bureau of dead men's siioes" and stored wiille further effort Is made to find them. Nearly all of the packages In the "bureau" contain rings and watches and medals. There are also many other relics, such as lockets, photographs, locks of hair, tetters from feweethtmrta, etc. And many of those whose effects go to the bureau leavo ical estate, bank notes, bonds, etc. But these are always converted Into dollars and deposited In the treasury In the name of the legal heir or heirs. Police of Cuba Plan Drive on Alien Crooks Havana.--Police headquarters are making plans to break up a band of International croolcs expected to Invade Cuba with the coming of the American tourist season, - Last season a band of crooks cama with the crowds of winter visitors and the police succeeded In recovering about $20,000 from the light-fingered gentry, who were arrested and skipped their bonds as soon as released. Warnings from American police headquarters of the visits of members of the same gang have put the authorities here on their guard, photographs and descriptions being on file In the archives. ! *Â»JU**tfW^\liWWW$ftM SO Nationalities in Hawaii National Guard Washington.--The array will match the Hawaiian National Guard against any organization In the world on the point of variety of nationality.

One infantry company of the guard la composed of Chinese oJBcors and men exclusively. Cat'. Whisker. There Is an old belief that a cnt uses Ifs whiskers to determine whether It can squeeze through a small open- Ing or hole According ;o fhJs notion, If the cat's whlsbers touch the sides 'of the hole, It will not venture In, Although this Is not strictly true, saya Pathfinder Magnalne, there Is a grain of truth In the belief. The large hairs on either altfp of a cat's nose are feelers. Technically they nre known ns "vlBbrissae." Their roots aro provided with delicate nerve endings of touch, thus enabling the animal to flnd Its wav ^r^h eap fhroueb a dnrls, Â«nr- PRICE TEEPLE GIVEN--DUET BENCH--MUSIC- DELIVERY $2.00 A AND B ench, Rolls and Delivery, Free ONLY A FEW PIANOS LEFT AT THESE LOW PRICES 5 Ft.
