UNCLE SAM TO ANALYZE
The V. S. IJureau of Mines has built a "mine-fire
gallery" at its -Pittsburg experiment station to
study the problems of spontaneous combustion and
.subduing mine fires. The gallery consists of a steel
tube G 1-2 feet in diameter and 27 feet long, laid
in a deep trench, lined with fire brick and mineral
wool, covered with 2 feet of earth, and with its
ends stopped by 13-inch brick walls. The chamber
has been made as nearly airtight as possible and in
sulated against tho escape of heat generated within.
At one end is a motor-driven fan and air meter,
while at the other is a stack which can be opened
or elose.d. At intervals along the top of the gallery
are small pipes for withdrawing samples of air or
gases inside, or for inserting pyrometers. The gal
lory will hold six to eight tons of coal when one
It is intended to place different kinds of coal or
waste in the chamber and study spontaneous devel
opments under various conditions. Experiments arc
planned on controlling lire by reducing air supply
or. sealing. Progressive changes in composition of
the gases, etc., will be followed out and tempera
ture measurements .made to secure data for solving
practical problems in subduing mine firSs. It is
claimed that this is the first attempt to investigate
this problem with experimental apparatus on a
mining scale and with full control of surrounding

"Wilson's "New Freedom" caused tho release of
a million hands in the factories because of his

"new freedom" of "Woody s will give the boys a
chance to study up on economies the science of
living on half-time wages, and in many cases no
wages at. all. Chicago has a daily bread line of
7,000 now. But wc are not to refer to these things,
for it hurts the feelings of his Majesty Tut, Tut, be
