Jan 19 1901..Ernest Newell has a good story he is giving to the boys.  He says one of the

for breakfast instead of going so far for it, where upon the stranger replied that he had 
furnished him with a bed and he didn't care to ask to much from one family.
   J H Newell, manager of the roller mills, and B H Sexton, the engineer, took a drive to
the Erie and other coal fields Monday in quest of fuel for the mill.  The best they could
