      In the Windber Area Museum we have a booklet prepared by the Berwind-White
      Coal Mining Co. It was a collection of ads they placed in Hungarian
      Newspapers (in Hungary) advertising jobs in America. "A house, a plot of
      land for a garden and a cow .....". These ads were 1900 to 1914.

      things are hidden away "safely", which means I'll never find it again.
