A NEW BOOK FOR COLLIERS. It is seldom that a book on a technical sub- ject likingB.1ining receives so rapid a sale and has as much praise bestowed on it as "Dont's for Miners," just issued from the "Western Mail" offices. I* a notice on this tittle hook given in a '-econA issue, the "Colliery Guardian," the highest authority in Mining literature, states: "It is not, exaggerating to say that if any workiJlg miner were to have this book, and to raad it,he cowld not fail to be a better rwan for the rest of his life. It is full of useful practiced hints. Tho advice is homely, and given in a humorous way. and there are items of informa- tion interest.ing to anyone who has to do with coal working. The object of the writer of the little brochure in printing it was to put- miners on their guard against accidents by pointing cut the chief causes of them. But in addi- tion to this the work contains and has woven into it the records of many deeds of heroism, and is interesting as we have said before for its general information. The subjects comprise prospecting and sinking, under which last head there is a story of a Welsh sinker's thrilling e- perigee, and also a narrow escape; roadways, timbering, hauliers, doorboys, colliers, etc. Immediately on the appearance of the book ottO of the foremost engineers of the country offeffflw to pay the whole cost of translating the work into Wolsh, stating at the same time that it read by even a small porportioe Of the ea1lia'Ø it would be the means of saving itaay lives J. limbs, and tha imforfcunaie Moaeqaenees of accidents under-round." This is praise scldo- meted out to a South Wales waiter, 1V. iP this cti.se, is up to the present unknown.
