I caught your piece about the bookstore in Carlinville and the chap there being interested in the Virden-Pana mine riot. I wrote an article on that back in the fifties for the Illinois Historical Journal. It was the first done on that incident and has been cited many times. Perhaps the fellow can find that in his local library. Also it occurs to me that you may not know that the famous "Mother" Jones (a nationally known labor union figure) is buried in Mt. Olive. The liberal-radical magazine now published derives its name from her."   Victor Hicken
