by the British press. A. no ted pub

of books in Germany. A thousand
volumes were sent by the Germans.

of Chicago to bestir themselves,

They supposed they were helping to
replace it. There had, however, been
none of this sort before.
Chicago began to take the neces

April 3, .1872, six months after the
fire, the city council passed an ordi ordinance

then got a law through the legisla

left in the city was an abandoned
iron water tank that had served as a
reservoir for the south side. It was
60 feet in diameter and 30 feet high.
It was roofed over, a hole cut in the
side for a door, shelves built around
its curving, sides, and turned into a
library. There during 1872 and 1873,

S. Sims, in the World's Work. "No U U-boat

Atlantic without our knowledge. The
submarine was a slow -traveler, and
required a minimum of 30 days for
such a trip; normally the time would
be much longer, for a submarine on
this long voyage seldom cruises at more
than five knots. Our destroyers and
anti-submarine craft were much faster,
and could easily cross the Atlantic in
ten days. It is. therefore, apparent
that a flotilla of destroyers stationed

Gold and Coal.
In describing the Cambria coal
field of, y yoniing, an expert mentions
the Interesting fact that gold and sil
ver are present in small quantities in j
the coal. From the occurrence of iron j
: pyrite, which is distributed throughout
fhe coal seam, it is suspected that this
mineral carries the precious metals.
The coke made from the coal Is used
in smelting works, and averages from
one to two pennyweight of gold per
ion, w hich is sufficient to compensate
for a high ash content.
