HUGE MINE IN FLAMES.
Mountain of Coal in Colorado Burning
and Mania Helpless.
The town of Newcastle , Colo. , when
President Roosevelt left the raihraj
train to plunge into the wilderness , h
celebrated as the location of a subter
rancan fire which , is gradually consuming
a mountain of coal one of the most val
uable deposits 5u the Rot-ky Mountains ,
writes William E. Curtis in the Chicagc
There are many burning mines in the
United States coal banks that have
caught fire and cannot be extinguished.
There used to be one within the city lim
its of Fittsburjr. which had been burning
for a generation when I last heard about
it , and may be burning yet. The coal
originally caught fire from a gas explo
sion and the operators were not able to
put it out. There are several burning
mines in the anthracite region , also.
Some of them are situated so that they
cannot be Hooded and others are allowed
to burn because they are not worth
enough to justify the expense of putting
the fires out.
Noar" Marshall , BouUlcr county , Colo. ,
a 300-acre furnace has been burning since
the early 'GOs and millions of dollars'
worth of coal has been consumed. Many
thousands have been expended in trying
to extinguish the flames during the last
forty years that they have raged , with
out avail. All efforts have been unsuc
cessful and the owners have now aban
doned the property to burn itself out.
Up in the Bad Lands of North Dakota
in the Little Missouri valley several
seams of lignite coal have been burning
for years. They were on fire when the
first white man went into that country
and there is no way to quench the flames.
In the Bull Mountains , north of Billings ,
Mont. , is another big fire that has been
burning for thirty years or more. But
none of them is so important as the
burning mountain at Newcastle , Colo.
You can see the fire on the hillsido if
you pass that way on the Denver and

"The coal goes into the hill , dipping at

thickness , respectively , five , eight , twelve ,

The Frugal Crow.
A correspondent sends to the Pioneer
( Allahabad ) the following notes on the
fact that a ca'se has been reported of a
crow's nest having been found which
was made out of telegraph wire : "Any
thing resembling a twig is pressed into
service. In the days of old , before
glass-stoppered bottles came into use
for soda water , many nests were made
of the wires used to keep in the corks
of such bottles. A nest constructed
out of brandy bottle wires was once
taken in a palm tree outside of Mad
ras. Another nest was found composed
of bits of tin stolen from the tin ba
zaar in Madras. One pair of crows
constructed a nest out of gold and sil
ver spectacle frames purloined from
the factory of Messrs. Lawrence &
Mayo , in Bombay. The materials for
this nest ( of which the value was
400 rupees ) were stolen by the wily
crows during the luncheon hour. It

were disappearing from the factory in
