Panther Run Mine ca.1913
The tipple was reconstructed and equipped with a Phillips Automatic Cross-over dump and screens changed to improve the preparation of the coal.  Also installed a Jeffrey car haul as a labor-saving device.  Built 14 brick and cement stoppings to take the place of wood stoppings.  The main haulage road in the mine relaid with 40 pound T-rail a distance of 2,500 feet.

(From the "Report of the Dept. of Mines of Pennsylvania for 1913.")
