What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

York to Philadelphia, ' 1 Fire hundred gold bricks—not the kind so dear to the heart of thè investing agriculturist, but the sort Uncle Sam deals, in—were loaded into the treasure, wagons of the United States Express Co. at the assay office one morning, re cently, driven rapidly to the Liber ty street ferry and so transported to the' mint at Philadelphia, where they are to be converted inti) gold coin. The total weight of the gold was in the neighbor hood of 14,000 or 15,000 pounds— seven or seven and a half tons. Its value was about 4,u00,000, says the New Y\ork Sun. “This is part of a shipment of $ 10 , 000,000 worth of gold in bars from this office to the mint in Phil adelphia within the past four or five days,\ said Superintendent Mason, of the assay office. “We send no guards with the treasure. . This is a matter for the express company. We have a contract with them to carry our coin and precious metals and they take all the responsibility from the time the consignment leaves the door of the assay office until it is de livered within the doors of the mint. The gold bars are packed in bepees averaging soineiyhere in the neighborhood of $ 00 ,(lòfi to a box. Each gold bar weighs from 28 to 30 pounds aud is worth in the neighborhood of ?S,.000.” In the back room of the assay office were a couple of boxes, on small hand trucks partially filled with the gold bars. “Be careful of your fingers,” said an attendant as a reporter picked up one of the bars and re placed it on end by the side of its mates. “You would be surprised to know how those gold bars will pinch if you give them n ehance to. Their dead weight is so great in proportion to their size that their edges will cut right into the flesh if you get your fingers in between. We have to be very careful in handling them.”- At the .United States express S O M E V E R Y Q U E E R LA K ES. Bodies of Water That Are a Source of Wonder to All Who Bo-, hold Them.

Granting that there is a greater mileage of railroad in this coun try, the proportionate travel is prok/ibly greater in England than here. What, then, is the explana tion of the fewer fatal accidents, or, rail.er, ih>- a 1 most total lack of accidents iu that country as com pared with the frightful mortality on our American roads ? The ex act solution is probably not easy, but the most natural explanation that will come to mind is that the British roads are better managed^ and that they are held to a much stricter accountability by the au thorities. Another reason also is the total absence of all grade crossings in England and the uni versal employment of the best of safety devices and signals, the block signal system being practio- ally universal.—N. O. Picayune. Mysterious Lake in Russia. A remarkable phenomenon is re ported from the Russian rural commune of Schava, in the govern ment of Tzareff Koksaka. Inex- plicable sounds were heard for several days issuing from the earth. The sounds varied from something like the booming of can non to the screeching of steam .whistles and seemed to come from •a forest skirting the commune. In this forest, where the terrified peasantry gathered in expecta tion of some calamity, the earth was seen to heave incessantly. Gradually huge cracks appeared, water was seen, at last the earth seemed gradually to sink, water rose, and-'iliere appeared a new lakh of considerable extent,-which is now being examined by geolo gists.—Detroit Free P\epa. ,• Me and-Me'thusalar will! be there October 26.

Basket ball, on the other hand, was born in the year 1901' at fSpringfield, Mass., and its author was James Nainsmith.
