' Tho destruction by firo of tho Adelaide tc-hool house very probably mnrk« tho passing of a school ibuild- ing for that vicinity. The old Method lat church, which has not been used as place of worship for several years, is- be-lnjf temporarily fitted up to accommodate tho 52 pupile for the ro- lirialnder of tho school · term. Tho probabilities are that the school bulldin; will not bo rebuilt. Tho onierg-ency quarter in the church bulldiir; will bo utilized-for tho present. Afterward provisions will too initdo for a continuation ot tho school. Tho circumstances show one of the losults of tho abandonment o£ coko plants. Thirty yearn ago Adelaide was a flourishing and prosperous coking -town. With tho ovens in production a largo forco of men was given steady -employment in tbo mine and ou tho coko yard. They were housed in the town which had llsj complement of a school building, church and residences. With tho working out of the coal tho only residents remaining have been tho families of men em-ployed at the wood preserving plant. These are tower In number than wore forancirly employed nt tho coke plant, but that there arc etill 52 pupils lu the school, employing two teachers, make it appear that provisions will have to be made to afford school facilities. If, however, tho consolidation with other schools \s decided upon the transportation system employed In the township may be extended to provitla accomodations for !lu children. In the end this may bo the most economical eolation of the question. TOTH BIUTimAT OF A LOCAL mur.

Tho attention of tho public has recently boon directed to a series of d i H a . s t f r s to motor busses at gnsde crossings In the State of Ohio.

Shrinkage in Coal Values J.atrcAic'l.UHlattn When John 3S, Derwlnd, vlco-preel- d e n t of tho JiorwInd-WliHo Coal Mining Company, died in May, 1028, fate will was f o u n d 'o contain a stipulation to the effect t it his two brothors wore to bo perm tied to acquire tho 12,602 shares of ; toclc in Iho company---oi which Jic 1 died possessed--at. ?1,000 a aliare or ut uuch faif valuo au migb.t be fixed tin ougli arbitration. It was .ipparont that when the testator made bis will ho doomed hl shares of tonl stock to be worth upward oE ?1.1,000,000, Yot the transfer tax appraisal of the catate, filed recently in New York, discloses tho 12,602 enures were ,eold by thf cpecutors to the two brothers, at -fc. prlco ot a little' more than 5200 ti share--in keeping with e. caraful api raiaal of the valuo of the stock made by a public account-ant. According to tho flndings of the accountant, t'io substitution of oil an a fuel for g neratlng power in fjteam- tihlpe had i-orloualy affected the ctml industry and hud compelled the Her wind-White Company, which formarlj had ft practical monopoly for tho sale of coa 1 to steamers) in Xc".\ York, to seek n e w markets fur . « o u t p u t , with a material reduction of tho com- pany'ti profits ensuing. "New economic oletuonts by way of competltioi adversely aff-ect the futuro welfare of this corporation," the accountant loported, "and make itt; profile blgnly spoculutive."
