The Steam Iop, "Which Is an Appliance
for Returning to a Steam Boiler tho
Condensed Water from Steam TIpcs,
Jackets, Heating Coils, Etc.
Tho Bteam loop hero illustrated is a
striking piece of apparatus, since it will
return water to a boiler situated at a high
level vrithout the intervention of pumps,
injectors or other motors. Engineering
gives the following Illustrated description:
Tho water simply flows back just as if it
were under the action of gravity, the only
means of communication being a range of
pipes. The action will be readily under
stood by reference to the annexed diagram,
which shows a steam boiler connected by
a steam pipe from the dome (A) to a steam
engine (B.) Immediately in front of the en
gine is fixed a separator, which catches the
water carried over by tho steam, as well as
that which condenses in the pipe. From
the bottom of the separator there rises a
pipe until it attains a considerable eleva
tion abovo the water line of the boiler; it
then proceeds horizontally, and finally
descends and enters the boiler at D.
Tho water from the separator follows the
course of the pipe, and flows into the boil
er at a higher level than the separator.
Tho reason of this will be readily seen. The
iteam pipe and the steam loop are both

connected to the boiler; but of course there
5s a slight difference of pressure in them,
the pressure falling a little tho farther the
Bteam gets from the boiler. Let us sup
pose tho pipes to be blown through at tho
cocks H and C, and these cocks then
closed. Water will commence to collect in
tho separator, and the pressure in tho loop
to fall by reason of condensation. Tho ex
cess of pressure in tho separator will im
mediately begin to drive tho water up the
risor, not in a solid body, but in separate
plugs or plungers, which will follow each
other at frequent intervals.
As soon as these reach the top of tho
yiser they will flow along tho horizontal
fiipe, which is of large diameter, and col
ect in tho down pipo. Hero the mats will
jremain until the head of tho water, plus
tho steam pressure above it, is sufficient to
raise tho check valve, when a part of tho
column will flow into tho boiler. Usually
a head of a few feet is sufficient to effect
this; but if tho pipes be very long it may
require twenty feet or more. At tho mo
ment when tho check valve lifts the
gauges at B and F will give tho same
j-cading, while tho gauge at G will show
tho steam pressure oxisting at thnt point,
jtho water is thus returned to the boilor
without loss of pressure and almost with
out loss of heat. This is done continuously
and automatically, the only care required
being to blow through occasionally to re
jnove the air.
"While waiting in a drug storo recently,
urys Popular Science News, our curiosity
was excited byacall for "colorless iodine,"
and after the customer had been supplied
with tho preparation we mado some in
quiries in regard to its composition. It ap
peared that tho iodine solution was bleach
ed by the addition of ammonia, so that
ttv hat tho purchaser roally obtained was a
solution of iodido of ammonium, possess
ing none of tho characteristic properties of
iodine itself. Colorless iodine is said to be
in considerable demand, but it contains no
octive iodino at all, and is evidently the
invention of some druggist or physician
with more ingonuity than chemical knowl
edge. TIow tho U. S. Arsenaln Clean Drafts.
Tho method prescribed for cleaning brass
end in uso in all tho United States arsenals
is claimed to bo the best in tho world. The
plan is to make a mixture of ono part com
mon nitric acid and one-half pint sulphuric
acid in a 6tono jar, having also ready a
p ul of fresh water and a box of sawdust.
The articles to be treated are dipped into
the acid, thrown into tho water and finally
rubbed with sawdust. This changes them
into a brilliant color immediately. If the
brass ha3 become greasy it is first dipped
in a strong solution of potash and soda in
v arm water; this cuts tho grease so that
the acid has full power to act.

Wo read that among courtesies current
in tho Middle Ages foudnl barons wero
mado noticeablyprominent,inthat "rights
and jurisdictions" accorded to them under
the crown insured to them "deference and
respect." Ono of those privileges was "to
erect a canopy, cmbroidorcd with armorial
bearing, over tho chairs in which they sat
when they administered justice or occupied
at ceremonial dinners."
"The cloth of state," as such a canopy
was called, is not wholly a lost relic, and
as a curiosity of tho long ago maybe seen
with other rich awnings in throne rooms
of royal palaces.
A parallol back and a projecting roof
sometimes took the place of the canopy,
and far more comfortable was s.uch an
arrangement, and -highly gratifying to
madam the baroness, since by the change
making room for two she could share the
honors, accorded to her liege lord. It was
also so occupied at meal times, whereby
the noble house mother could receive her
quota of "deference and respect."
From these ancient "forms" was evolved
the sometimes rude, but strong and con
venient "settle." which manv of tis hsvn
observed on stoops or piazzas of country
inns, or on me verandas of well built farm
ers' homes. Harper's Baxar.

On bringing tho lenses close together, so
that Newton's rings could be observed in
tha film of air between them, a very small
motion of the support caused a consider
able oscillation of the rings. In this way
ho could detect the motion produced in the

If iodino bo accidentally swallowed,
quickly mix somo common starch, as for
starching clothes, and compel tho patient
to drink a largo quantity of it. If lau
danum or morphine is taken in overdoses
givo strong coffee, and keep the patient
continually moving, not allowing him to
sleep. Tincture of belladonna is also an
antidote for morphine, but should only be
given by an experienced physician, as it is
also poisonous, except in minute doses.
Mustard and water will act as a prompt
emetic, and if given speedily will remove
many poisons from the stomach, and prove
efficacious in saving life. A teaspoonful
of ground mustard may be taken with im
punity. Tepid wattr swallowed in large
quantities and thrown up, aided by the
finger in the throat, will "wash oat" many
poisonous substances if taken promptly,
repeating the operation several times.

The Toad and the Dulce of Tfelllncton.
Short Cuts has unearthed a peculiarly
delightful letter of the Duke of Welling
ton's, which runs as follows: "Strath
fieldsaye, July 27, 1937. Field Marshal
the Duke of Wellington is happy to in
form William Harries that his toad is
alive and well." During one of his
country walks the duke found a little
boy lying on the ground bending his
head over a tame toad and crying as if
his heart would break. On being aked
what was the matter the child explained
that he was crying "foT his poor toad."
He brought it something to eat every
morning, but he was now to bo sent
away to school a long distance off, and
he was afraid that nobody eke would
give it anything to eat and that it would
The duke, however, consoled him by
saying that he would himself r the toad
well fed, and by further promising to
let the boy hear aa to its welfare. Dar
ing the time the boy was away at school
he received no less than five autograph
letters similar to that given above, and
when he returned for the Christmas
holidays the toad vtsa efcill alive to glad
den his heart. The story is eTea more
delightful than that of the duke's indig
nation when he found that a party
of children at Strathfieldsave among
whom, we believe, waa te present

without 3am. The incident rotted hiia
to immediate action, and he at once

Roland Bernard Gelatt, whose espousal
of the Jewish faith and a fair daughter of
Israel at tho same time has been chronicled
extensively, is a newspaper man. Geo
graphically speaking his journalistic ex-
perienco has been wide. In Minneapolis,
Detroit and Kansas City he has figured in
newspaper circles, anil he is equally well
known in several smaller cities. He is an
Iowan by birth and a printer by trade.
When he went to Cornull university he
found his mastery of a trade useful. Not
being provided with a superabundance of
cash he sought for means to defray tho
necessary expenses of a college course. A
case on one of the morning papers of Ithaca
was assigned him, and so he stuck type by
night and studied by day until ho was
After a brief connection with the Iowa
press, notably The Dubuque Herald, Mr.
Gelatt made his way to Minneapolis.
There he served as managing editor of The
Tribune under the regime of Gen. Nettle
ton and C. A. Nimmocks. When Mr. Nim
mocks bought The Evening Journal Mr.
Gelatt was installed as managing editor.
The sale of The Journal ended Gelatt's
connection with the paper, and he removed
to Detroit to tako the editorship of Tho
Tribune. In a year this paper was sold,
and Gelatt went to Kansas City with a party
of Detroit newspaper men who purchased
The Kansas City News. His connection
with The News was brief, and in the early
par of 1SSS he went back to Minneapolis
to aid Mr. Nhnmocks in the establishment
of Tho Evening Star, which is uow Tho
Evening Tribune. After a few months'
stay in Minneapolis he once more suffered
tho misfortune vt having the paper sold
over his head, and betook himself to Kan
sas City, where, in association with Robert
A. Corregan, he established The Morning
Globe. A lack of capital embarrassed tho
proprietors, and after the fourth day of
publication they began seeking for a pur
chaser. Mr. Louis Hniiimerslough, a re
tired clothing merchant, was induced to
buy the paper and still owns It.

Editor GHatt's romance began while be
was with The Globe. An ml vertising so
licitor, Samuel Reefer, a Hebrew, lmd a
young daughter, Ada, who was employed
as a stenographer in the business office.
Gelatt's association w:th her ripened Into
love. She reciprocated his affection, but
the customs of her race stood between
them. Ordinarily inflexible in his adher
ence to personal theories and beliufe, Gel
att yielded to tho coaxing oice of Cupid.
If his sweetheart would not marry him as
a Gentile ho nou Id become a Jew. So ho
sought out Rabbi Bukowitz and presented
the case to him. The rabbi decided to ac
cept Gelatt if he would demonstrate tho
sincerity of his conversion. "Dfer your
marriage eighteen months." said he;
"meantime study our aoctrines and live
according to our creed. If after this period
of probation you still desire to cmbraco
our faith, como to me and I will admit
With thi promise Gelatt had to be con
tented His period of probation wai
passed away from Kansas City, for leav
ing The Globe he w?nt to Minneapolis to
edit the newly established Times, and
thence to Bay City, where he is now con
nected with The Tribune. But neither the
lappe of time nor separation from bin in

he reappeared in Kansas City in the pres

neither of these can be attributed to Estello
Lo Bon, tho woman for whom Fred Kim
ball, of Worcester, Mass., abandoned

fugitive from justice. Her fascinations
were entirely of the baleful order. She was
tho partner of his guilt and of his flight,
kept him company during a European tour
until his stolen money gave out,and then, re
turning to America, lured ham to New
York, greeted him at the dock with a Judaa
kiss and slipped from his embracing arms
that detectives might clasp tho handcuff
on his wrists. Now, without a friend,

It is pleasant to turn from contemplation
of this darkly shaded picture to view one
limned in less lurid colors that of a bright
maiden whose fascinations do not blight,
and who is so impervious to the friendly
advances of her patrons that they do not
even know her name. They know her
only as "Boston's pretty flower girl." and
all tho young fellows, and many staid busi
ness men as well, go out of their way to
purchase a posy from her baiket.

Writes a reporter, ovhlently while under
the spoil of hor charm: "She ia soft in
face aud utrong in body, and she never
sells n roso or a pink that the admiring
nuyer does not feel the absurdity of taking
tho tlowor and leaving her. But she has
an eye only for business, and the aaine may
bo said of hor smile."
But it is not in Cupid'a court alone that
woman rules. Other inheres of activity
and other seta of emotions come under liar
domination. There, for example), is the
