Stenographer Declares Woman
Has Same Right as Man
In Stale-Scented Coach.
CHICAGO. April .-Should won
Oh. sister, ask Mary Foley, the
Chicago stenographer, who makes it
a practice to patronize the smoking
ears on railroads in preference to
the day coaches. In the faces of
Iaany Mpen commuters Miss Foley
wilked into two of these holy of
holies, drew forth her cigarette
ease, and settled for a nice little
No one tried to stop her.
She did it "just to see." She
started south on the Rock Island.
She walked toward the smoking car.
The conductor who saw her politely
remarked, "That's the smoking car,
Madam." And what did Miss Foley
may? Ah. she knocked the conductor
flat with her answer:
"Yes, I know it's the smoking car
-that's why I'm going there."
This conductor was too dumfound
ad to tell the tale, but the conduc
tor of the Illinois Central managed
to give a confused report of the
spectacle he saw, and thus the re
porter found the young woman's
"I Know It."
"She calmly walked into the smok
ing car after getting on at the Fifty
third street station," said the 1. C.
Oonductor. "I called to her three
times, 'The next car is the smoker,
madam.' and she only smiled and
said: "I know it.'"
"Did you really invade two men's
smoking cars?" the reporter asked
"Yes, but what's wrong in it?"
She queried. "It was the first time
I ever did such a thing. We are an
emancipated race, aren't we? Can't
we do as we please?"
"Yes, yes," stammered the r.
porter. "How did you get the nerve
to put it over?"
"Oh. the soothing effects of cig
arettee give one the nerve." laughed
Miss Foley. "But, seriously, the
idea came to' me when I got on a
train the other day. I couldn't find
a seat and had to stand up. I hap
pened to look into a smoker and saw
the men lolling back comfortably
in the half-filled- car, puffing away
In the greatest contentment. I said
to myself: 'Why shouldn't I do this?
Am I prohibited from enjoying a
seat and a smoke just because I'm a

For a number of years department
experts have been studying the ex
plosibility of carbonaceous dusts,
mostly for the education of manufac
turers and workers in materials
which produce such conditions, and
surprising disclosures of general
interest have been made.
Where wheat grains or other
cereals are handled In bulk, friction
produces quantities of fine dust. and
when train and carloads are handled
daily, the amount of this dust that
accumulates about the plant, on
floors and projections, is enormous.
Dust clouds long hang in the air.
It has been determined by the ex

the air a mixture as fickle and ex
plosive as that formed in the car
buretor of an automobile.
It can generate as explosions an

barrels. All that is needed to start
