The nae of bagasse as fuel is receiving
much attention in Louisiana, as
well as here in Hawaii. In the last
number of the -Louisiana Planter
George Osborne of Kukaiau, Hawaii,
contributes the following interesting
account of fits experiments in burning
"I send you herewith a rough sketch
of what, after a great deal of experimenting,
I consider to be the best
method we have of setting steam boilers
In the sugar mills of the Islands,"
he writes. "The .boilers are set tandem,
or one In front of the other. The
gases pass first under the bottom of
the two boilers and return through th
flues and tubes of the .boilers to Jie
smokestack. This method of firing has
long been In use, and the difference in
this instance consists in building .the
furnaces further out from the end of
the bojler, so that the firing can be
done from the top of the furnace, instead
of the front, as Is usually the
"These furnaces arc usually made
about six feet ten inches by six feet,
and are fitted with step-ladder and
horizontal grate bars. The step-ladder
bars are usually about six feet long,
and the horizontal cr common grate
bars three feet long. Jn the bridge
wall six hot-air pipes are built.
These hot-air pipes are a great improvement
and increase, or improve,
the combustion wonderfully and to
such an extent as to surprise many
engineers. Flues are also left on each
side of the' furnace, and they terminate
in the bridge wall. I may say oue
thing for these furnaces, which 1 can
say for no others that I am acquainted
with. It is that there Is rarely any
smoke whatever issuing from the
smokestacks, and it Is difficult for people
at a distance to tell whether we
are working or not,
"An improvement is also found in
making the flame bed rather lower,
which gives more room for -the flame
and gases to combine. This style of
furnace may be far from perfect, but
it is an immense improvement over the
old style and comes nearer satisfying
me than any boiler setting that I
cave had any experience with, excepting
water-tube boilers. In regard to
Arndt's patent automatic combustion
testing apparatus, I will say that it is
to the furnace what the indicator is to
the steam engine, and shows just as
plainly what is being done in the furnace
as .the indicator shows what is
'being done in the engine. I think it
will eventually be useu as much, ine
object of the machine is to show the
amount of carbon dfoxjde, or carbonic
acid gas in the flue gases, which is
everywhere regarded as the test of
combustion. Only about 9 to 10 per
-cent CO could be got by the old meth
od of firing, and it was only by the
experimenting with the air supply and
by different methods of firing that the
highest results were attained. When
the firing wta done automatically from
the top door, and when the ash pit
door wa3 nearly closed, and more fuel
was kept in the furnaces, the
shows the highest amount of
CO or carbonic acid gas.
"We find, however, that different
boilers and different settings require
different treatment. For, while some
furnaces require more air op top of
the fuel, others do not, and again,
while some need more air below the
furnaces, others require less. So, the
only way to determine what is needed
is to test them with such an apparatus.
.1 may say that formerly we were short
of fuel, but since putting in this combustion
testirg apparatus we have
more fuel, or uagasse, than we can
use, notwitlutr.pdlpg we use 10 to 15
per cent maccation."
A Louisiana planter, In writing on
the sanio subject, says: "I have burnt
bagasse in my own furnace and I have
seen other furnaces burn It, but ths
hottest fires, to all appearances, were
in the Dutch-oven furnaces. Where
the steam boilers are hung over the
bagasse fires they, to be sure, get the
direct heat, what there Is of it, but the
boilers in that proximity to the fire
so chill the furnace that no great hsat
can be generated. The white flames in
such a furnace look warm and genial,
but they are not hot. They are cold
and moony as compared with the blue
flames, uenoting the intense heat of the
Dutch oven. ,
"GJve me a roomy Dutch oven, with
a blast forced through small tuyeres
to limit the volume of air and Increase
its intensity. The blue flames bore
boles into the glowing mass of bagasse
and the firebrick linings are white with
fervent heat. Thjs heat can then be led
to the boilers near by; where it will
make itself felt. What though there
may be a small amount of bagasse in
Ihe center of the pile not in combustion?
It Is all burnt None of it gets
away, aad therp is no smoke from
such a furnace. Its fire is seven tjaies
hotter than the fiery furnace of

The Case Crop.
Splendid weather for this growing
crop has been" recorded throughouf the
sugar parishes this week. Work is
progressing rapidly, the cane fields being
now generally dean and laying
by will soon be a thing of the past.
Although late, a number of planters
are now sowing peas in scattered stubble,
thu3 disposing of any grass that
might otherwise grow later on. The
cane crop is more than holding its
own, for both stubble and plant present
a most healthy appearance, and
Is besides, fast attaining average siz;
In fact, in a number of sugar sections
the cane Is now considered fully up to
average size, if not even larger, than
it was at this period last jear. Xow
that danger from excessive rains has
passed, we feel justified In repeating
our prediction that this wilK truly be

Industry. Sugar Planters' Journal.
Beet Sugar in Colorado.
The general result of a season's work
at the Colorado station has dpmcttt
strated the ability of Colorado to produce
sugar beets profitably, it Is said,
anti further work along these lines will
be confined to cultural, problems and
to special features of the industry.
The sugar-beet crop for two larse
factories In the Arkansas valley is now
planted, and there are 12,000 acres In
beets, says the Field and Farm. This
Is a good record for the first year in
this new enterprise. This acreage is
to supply two large factories, one at
Rocky Ford and the other fourteen
miles north at Sugar City. In addition
to these two, there is another large
factory which was erected at Grand
Junction a year ago, and has successfully
turned the first crop of beets into
sugar, rrom this point about oOOO additional
acres will be grown this year.
The farmers will receive ?4.50 per
ton for beets yielding 12 per cent sugar
and So per cent purity, and an addition
of 33 1-3 cents per ton for each
additional per cent of sugar. The seed
costs the farmer. 15 cents per pound.
Food Value of Sugar,
Experiments have been made by Professor
Mosso, at Genoa, to test the
food value of sugar in cases of
from hunger. His results confirm
the theory that sugar is assimilated by
the exhausted system more rapidly
than bread, and showed a rapid rise in
temperature wjthin ten or fifteen minutes
after a small quantity of sugar
was eaten by a long-fasting animal,
the effect reaching a niaximunHn one
to two hours. Sugar restored life to
