NEW DEVICE FOR RESCUE
WORK IN. COAL JUNES.
In accordance with their policy of
investigating every promising method
for reducing the risks of mining, the
anthracite coal operators have Just
made a test of new life-saving appa
ratus. It is a German Invention, and
Its function is to keep the man who
wears it supplied with pure air while
he fights mine fires or rescues com
rades who have been overcome.
The test took place In one of the
mines near Scran ton. About 30 offi
cials of the companies gathered tc
witness It. A mine gangway was al
lowed to fill with gas, for the pur
poses of the test. Two volunteers,
fitted out with the helmets, explored
the gangway and chambers branching
out form It. Emerging from the gas.
they reported themselves none th
worse for the experience.
The chief part of the Draeger ap
paratua, ao called after Its inventor,
is carried upon the back: It lncludef
cylinder tanks of oxygen, and potash
cartridges for absorbing carbonic add
gas exhaled from the lungs. The oxy
gen, contained In the cylinder, at an
Initial pressure of 2000 pounds. Is
sues to the helmet at the proper rate
for consumption by the lungs. The
fled by passing through the potash
cartridges, and la used over again ir
conjunction with the fresh oxygen
from the tanks. The apparatus will
supply air to the wearer for two hour
Recent disasters in bitumlnour
mines in this country and abroad
have aroused widespread Interest Ir
the subject of mine aclcdents. The
United States government, even, ha?
conducted Inquiries Into the causes of
accidents, with a view to finding
means to prevent them." In the an
thracite mines of Pennsylvania meas

have been so perfected that fatalities

Officials are on constant wntch fo

n this way Incompetent men often

ire powerless to prevent It.
Instructions are printed In every
language spoken In the mines, and
are posted prominently where all the

Instances, however, the state Inspec
tors have learned that the men pay
too little attention to the notices.
