prise by the city of Halstead and the inter
vening townships. It is desired to make
this line not only a connection of the St.
Louis & San Francisco railway but also a
connection with the Union Pacific railway
at McPlierson. From Bentley the line is
about fifteen miles into this city. The
Halstead people are extremely anxious for
a direct connection with this city and its
rapidly developing live stock interests.
This line tap-, the iinest portions of Har

There is but ono house in th city, or in
fact in the country, that makes a business of
rehabilitating the salvage of great fires, and,
as that house takos caro of salvage of any
and all kinds from fourteen different-states,
something of tho Ecale upon which it is con
ducted can be imagined. As, of course, all
tho goods saved from the flames aro badly
injured by water, they must all be subjected
to a drying process. For this purpose there
is upon the second floor of the main building
an immense drying room, which occupies the
entire floor. In ono cornsr of the room is an
engine, with a huge pipo extending the length
of the room, from which short pipes open
downward, abovo a-triple row of slats about
fifteen feet long, which extend across the
room at right angles to the wall the entjro
length of the building at intervals of three
feet. Tbeso slats are set in galvanized hooks
and depend from strong timbers; from them
when visited by tho writer hung festoon
upon festoon of cloth of ovory hue and kind,
some scorched at tho edges, others wholo and
perfect, and all soaked.
The steam caused by their rapid drying
and tho intense heat of the room made the
atmosphere almost unbearable, although ths
air is kept constantly in motion and con
stantly changing by tho great revolving fans
in the open windows.
THE PROCESH OF D3YING.
Connected with tho engine is an ingenious
arrangement for renewing the pilo of plush
and velvet goods injured by water. It coa
sists of a largo squaro box filled by steam
from tho engine. This box has a perforated
zinc top, and whilo tho manipulator turns
tho plush from sido to side it is brushed by a
revolving brush; tho air from the revolving
fans, near one of which it is placed, constantly
circulating over tho surface of the goods,
dries it at tho same timo by evaporating tho
steam. When this room is given over to tho
drying of dried fruits, nuts, beans, rice, to
bacco, coffee, cigars, and groceries of every
kind, they are arranged upon hugo perfor
ated trays set upon slats in tiers ono abovo
the other. The air, at a moderata heat, is
kept circulating over and around them by
means of fans, and they aro thus dried by
evaporation without injury.
Flour is very littlo injured by water, as a
pasto forms upon tho outer curface which
preserves tho flour within from damage;
therefore it is simply necessary to removo
tho staves of tho barrel, scraps off the outer
pasto from tho flour, and place it in a largo
bin, from which it is sifted through an im
mense sieve, and reweighed and barreled.
Tea preserves itself in somewhat tho same
way. A quantity of tea wived from tho
burning of a tea warehouse aggregating 1,200,
0C0 pounds had been dried and was ready
for reboxing, when it was found by a chemical
analysis to bo unfit for food on account of
tho river water with which it had been satu
rated. Although to all appearances it was
as good tea as ono ordinarily buys, and there
was nothing unusual in its taste, being unfit
for food it could neither bo sold nor given
away. What was to bo done?
As a last resort it was decided to feed the
furnace with it, and for five months wns tho
entire building (five stories) heated with tea
HOW THE SALVAGE IS HANDLED.
Upon leaving tho drying room and ascend
ing to tho third floor tho writer found num
berless women aud girls busy assorting tho
dry goods which had just been returned from
tho drying room. Some that wcro so badly
burned at the edges as to be useless for any
other purpose wcro thrown aside to bo sold
to manufacturers of "cottage carpets," or to
the paper mills, to whom thousands of tons
of such refuse aro sold every year. Other
pieces, mainly cotton cloth, which is very in
flammable, whilo not too badly burned for
use, aro still damaged so much as to bo un
salable. These goods are given to aid socie
ties and tho poor, and, when suitable, to hos
pitals for bandages.
Tho fourth and fifth floors aro devoted to
measuring goods, making them into bolts,
and clipping off burned edges, tho clipping
being done by a hugo knif o worked by a lover,
which clips and presses a wholo bolt by a
single movement. They aro then ticketed
and mado into lots and aro ready far market
Hats and caps are tubjectod to pressure to
expel tho water, and aro then dried and re
blocked. It was interesting to observe the
busy workmen and watch them take from
the bin, which must havo contained many
thousands of hate, a crushed, shapeless thing,
and watch it under their hands becomo as
perfect a hat as could bo bought from a
Tho other buildings, which aro a part of
tho reclaiming establishment, aro devoted
mainly to tho care of groceries and tobacco,
to rebagging coffee, spices, nuts, etc., and to
tho renovation of cigars. This branch of
tho business is skillfully done. Tobacco,
which quickly molds whon wet, must be
slowly and carefully dncd in order that its
flavor may not b3 injured, as must also
cigars. The onginal packacres are carefully
counted, and an affidavit of their number
made to tho revenue department of the gov
ernment, which furnishes free of charge tho
stamps for tho new packages. Cigars receivo
new wrappers and boxes, and are sold in
All tho processes described have been in
vented and experimented with ono by one.
It has been the work of a lifetime to bring
them to their present perfection. Tho appa-
rus which is usel for measuring cloth, as
well as the many contrivances for brushing
and polishing goods of all kinds injured by
smoke and water, from pecan nuts to brass
bedsteads, was invented by tho head of the
hou;, as well as all tho other processes re
ferred to in this article.
Great skill is required in removing stock
from tho ruins, as lack of skill in this partic
ular would add greatly to the Iorvjs.
Tho large cheap stores, as well as many
wholesalers, are the purchasers of reclaimed
salvage. The goods whon they come into
their hands are almost as perfect as tv hen
they came from the factory. Chicago Trib

THE LATE GEN. SCHENCK.
Anecdotes Which jhow Hi Heal Char
acter. Like all sxn of strong convictions, ag
gressive peraoaaltry aud extreme capacity for
making warm friends or bitter foes, Gen.
Robert C. Scbcaci, who died reccctly at
Washington, was the object daring his life

equal amount ot undue cnUcten. Perhaps

'-' ponuctaa, an ex'tfTplcmataJ "but ot
military affairs ha knew nothing, and those
opposed to him eaid so in plain terms. His
appointment was 'denounced in ono leading
newspaper t3 an outrage on tho soldiers, and
it was suggested that he be turned over to
somo orderly sergeant of the regular army
and "mado to driil hfco sixty for a month."
It was only a little after his entering on
active military service that Scheack's critics
found a new occasion for reiterating their
original views. The general was engaged in
securing possession of the Loudon and Hamp
shire railroad. At Vienna the train convey
ing his forces was fired upon, the engineer un
coupled the locomotive and ran away, and
Schcnck's handful of men had to face a band
of very eager and active opponents. Tha
truth of the matter, a3 afterward established,
was that tho combatants on both sides dis
played creditable courage and came out of
the contest with honor, but Schecck's en
emies declared that he had been lgnominious
ly routed, and sarcastically dubbed him the
"hero of Vienna."
Tho probable reasons why President Lin
coln gavo Schenck his commission were two
in number. For ono he knew the man to bt
able, aggressive and bravo. And again he
considered himself under great personal obli
gation. It may not bo generally known, but
it is an actual fact that LIr. Lincoln gavo
Schenck tho credit of first naming him for
the presidency. In September, 1S59, the for
mer addressed a meeting at Dayton, 0., on
tho pohtial issues of that period. Allusion
being made to the subject of tho next presi
dency, Mr. Schenck suggested "that if an
honest, sensible man was wanted, it would be
n ell to nominate the distinguished gentleman
from Illinois who had just addressed them.1'
However, if the beginning of Schenck's
military career was not glorious, either
through lack of experience or want of oppor
tunity, ho showed conspicuous gallantry and
ability later on. At tho secoud battle of Bull
Run, whilo in tho thickest of the fight and
urging his men forward, a ball struck hia
right wrist and his sword dropped from hia
hand. Says ono of tho historians of the war:
"Soldiers stdl enjoy telling of tho general's
rage and fearful imprecations at tho loss of
his sword." He refused to leave tho field
until he had recovered it. The wound per
manently injured his right arm, and for the
remainder of his lifo Gen. Schenck wrota
with his loft hand.
When minister to England Gen. Schenck
became tho target of a good deal of adverse
comment because he was reported to have
published a book on poker playing for the
use of tho English aristocracy. "Poker
Bob," as he was afterwards called by hi3 op
ponents, never took tho trouble to deny the
charge, but his friends claimed that he sim
ply wrote out tho rules of tho game in com
plianco with the request of a lady. She had
the manuscript put in typo and issued a few
copies of tho pamphlet for privato circula
tion. Gen. Schenck spent the last years of his
lifo in absolute retirement. He gathered
about him a few old friends, but cared to
mako no now ones. As one of his biographers
says: "His enemies spoke of him as selfish;
his friends called him whole souled, generous,
big hearted, hospitable."
Ethor Displacing Chloroform.
Dr. Roger Williams has mado a carof ul ex
amination of the hospital books, from which
it appears that in ten years chloroform was
administered at St. Bartholomew's 12.3C3
times with fatal results in ten cases, being
about ono in 1,236. The most important re
sult of Dr. Williams' investigations, however,
is the discovery that when ether instead of
chloroform had been used during tho samo
period there were only thrco deaths out of
13,bl instances. Dr. Williams tolls us ho
has long been aware of tho greater safoty of
ether, and ho declares his belief that this is
tho conclusion towards which professional
opinion is steadily moving.
OI Icto-et to Photoj-nphcrs.
It has recently been discovered that sul
phate of quinino possesses tho power of ren
dering light non-actinic, and that a plate of
white ground glass, which has been covered
with a strong Kolution and allowed to dry,
may bo used in tho photographic lantern in
stead of that el tho ordinary ruby color,
says Popular Snvnco News. Wo havo re
