IIKTII A I,TO. KD WARDS VILLE. The olectric mining machinery in the Henrietta mine in the northeastern part of this city has been discarded. This notion on the part of the proprietors of the shaft is regarded with interest by mine operators all over Illinois, as It was a costly but practical experiment in mining, methods. When the Henrietta shaft was sunk a t-ouple of years ago the owner, Henry Voge, announced his intention of tequiping it with the best and most up to date machinery. Accordingly electric drilling machinery was installed, the coal boxes were hauled by the .same power and the mine was electrically lighted. The drilling machinery is now in a shed near the top works and will probably never be used twain. Its discarding is held to prove that the roof in mines in this part of Illinois will not permit of the use of that class of machinery. Kach machine occupies laterally half a do/.en more feet of spacethanany other kind, necessitating a wider entry, and this weakens the roof to such an extent that it is at all times dangerous to the men following the machine. The apparatus itself makes a splendid cut, but can never come into general use in coal fields like these where the coal is not compact. It is believed that Madison county farmers will devote a large acreage to the raising of broom corn this summer. The firm of Berry & Hot/., who operate a broom factory in this city, have leased a farm at the edge of Ije- elnire and will put it all in the corn.
