ctn'S wero kept standing in tlio storago
yards of tho Pennsylvania railroad ut
South Amboy for weeks at a timo. At
times tho company was embarrassed for
want of cars to traussport tho coal from
tho mines. Tho difficulty was finally
solved about throo years ago. In placo
of tho long Htring of loaded cars may
now bo seen iinmcnso pilos of coal.
When a train arrives from tho mines,
tho various kinds of coal aro sorted out
and tho cars drilled to tho proper sido
track for unloading. In oloso proximity
'io each sido track stands a largo derrick
with n movablo boom extending diagon
ally into tho air about 80 foot. To this
boom is attached a largo trnvoling bolt,
on which nro fastened largo buckets. Tho
bolt is operated by a small steam cngino
in chargo of tho man who manipulates
tho olovator. As tho coal drops from tho
outlet iu tho car it falls into tho buckets
on tho olovator bolt nud is carried to tho
cud. of tho swinging boom, whero it is
dropped in tho center of thopiloaud dis
tributed by gravity. Tho coal remains in
theso pilos until it is required for ship
ment ; then it is loaded in cars and trans
ferred to tho docks.
Tho immouso pilcu of coal
contain from 10,000 to 12,000 tons eact
and nro worth from $ 40,000 to $50,000,
according to tho market value of tho
coaL It is frequently tho caso that thoro
aro 13 of theso piles of coal iu tho stor
ago yard, representing a valuo of from
500,000 to $000,000. It was discovered
recently that tho coal rusted whilo in
thoso piles. This did not detract from
tho burning qualities, but affected tho
selling valuo. To provont this canvas
covers woro mado at u cost of $1,000
each. When tho pilos of coal nro all
covorod, tho storngo yard resembles a
largo circus. Tho sight of such an im
mouso quantity of coal is viowod with
astonishment by straugors, although the
residents of South Amboy tiro so accus
tomed to it that thoynovcr givo it a sec

AN ANCIENT BLOCKHOUSE.

as it stood 1!10 years ago. To tho Pitts
burg chapter of tho Daughters of tho
Rovolution wo nro indobted for its res

redoubt of Bouquet, as it is called, was
occupied as a tenant houso, and within
its walls was bom Pittsburg's local his

Down ou "tho point," on a narrow,
