Page 139 - Norwoodville, a coal camp, is situated two miles due south of the Delaware mine. Mining has been carried on in a desultory fashion at this point for a number of years, but it was not until recently that the present large production was attained. The company now in charge of operations has met all difficulties in a determined and scientific manner. The Norwood-White shaft No. 1, commonly known as Klondike No. 1, lies on the north side of the Chicago Great Western tracks, near the camp (Delaware Tp.,...
