I KEEPING DOWN SMOKE
This ii the seafn of the year when careful business nun arc '
inokinp over their healing plantR nrl tudying improvements in the
equipment in an endeavor to krp down the smoke nuisance which
has bocn increasing with the rapid growth of Ogden.
Suggestions as to the best type of stokers are numerous, arid
instructions are not wmiting as to the method of tiring a bailer.
But the owners of plants continue to find no real solution of the
Recently in Salt Lake City, the engineer of one of the hotels .
gave a demonstration to rIiow how to prevent imoke He did noth
ing more than mix oil-shale with the COtl fed into the fire box, and i
then he made this explanation:
"By burning oil shale with coal in proportions of about one of
shale to four of coal, a perfect combustion is secured. C'oal, when ,
used alone, lies on the fin- some six to right minutes before it be-1
gins to blare, and during this period and for a time afterward it
gives off heavy gas and carbon which, not ha inn the flame to burn
them, pass away in smoke.
"When oil shale is ued with the coal in the proportion above
stated, a very different action takes place As soon as the shale ill
thrown in the fire box it blazes up with a stead, hot flame which j
burns the gas and carbon that is cast off by the coal, making a per
fect combustion and positively no smoke
"To eliminate smoke in an ordinary furnace using coal alone
it is neeessary ami s ordered by the city inspectors to open the
door of the fire box from two to four inches. This causes cold air
to rush over the fire and prevent tne smoke showing. The reason
for the smoke not showing is because the air thins it out. The gas
and carbon are there just the same, and pass up the chimney un
burned and invisible, and so many heat units are thereby lost. In
my opinion, at least half the efficiency of the eoal is lost while the
door remains open
"With the use of oil-shale and coal the door of the fire box is
closed tight, securing full efficiency of the fuel Further attention is
called to the greater efficiency of the oil shale-coal fuel, in the fact
that the perfeel combustion secured and eliminating the smoke leaves
the heatmp surfaces of the boiler clean, allowing it to work at high
est efficiency at all times, thereby making a big saving in fuel.
"After firing with CO alone the steam gnuere drops back from
ten to fifteen pounds. Firing with the oilshale furl it does not dror.
back. It rises at once. This must mean much better results from"
the fuel "
The experiments with oil-shale should be followed up and, if as
successful as claimed, a mor e should be made to test the combination
fuel in a furnace in Oi'den.
I INTRASTATE RAILROAD RATES
Following the Increasing of passenger and freigh1 rates by th J
Interstate Commerce Commission, a number of railroad commissions
of the states haM declined to prant intrastate increases I tab's com
mission refuseil to .dlr.w passenger rates oven 9 cents a mile to be ,
advanced and hps blocked the raising of rales on eoal and ores. It
is said the matter will be taken into the federal courts by the rail-!
The Illinois public utilities commission recently allowed an in- r
rease of only '.:! l-' per . nt m intrastate freight rates as ag
the 40 per cent requested, but declined to permit any increase in
passenger fares, owing to the existence of a 2-eent a mile fare &
in the state
The Wiseonsip railroad commission granted an increase of 3i
per cent in line with the iOtion of the federal body, but held that it
had no authorily to increase passenger rates because of the 2-CMl!
fare law in force in that state
In New York is' week the public service commission for th'
Second district allowed to the railroads on their request an incress
of 40 per cent m intrastate freight rates SXCCpt n milk and cream
mainly on the ground that the discrepancy between the new inter
state and the former intrastate freighl rates would have a disturb-1
ing influence on business of every kind and might prove disastrous j
in some lines. The commission, howeveri declined to grant the in
crease of '() j.er cent jn passengei farefe asked for by the ruilroads
n the ground thai the rate asked bo 3.6 Cents per mile, was in ex
cess of the maximum fixed by itftttyi
Had the Utah COmmilsiori granted the increase in freight rate
demanded on Intrastate shipments of coal, the price pf fuel would
have been advanced at least .u cents to consumers in this state
I WOMEN AS MOTHERS.
This existence of ours is becoming more artificial. After pro
I eeeding to determine for grown upi a balanced ration in which
appetite is but little consulted the Specialists tell us that too many i
babies die in the United tate because women are not good motion
In yesterday's Standard-K.xaminer was an article h .Julia,
Lathrop. chief of the Tinted States children's bureau, declaring that i
one baby out of ten bom in the United States dies before it is a'
year obi from cause which in prcat part are preventable, if the.
mothers knew their full duty and observed the rules of right li vine :
This does not seeni p s;hle and yet the authority for the sain

Dentists will tell yon t hut the bad teeth of the people of this
country are due to an unbalanced milk diet in infancy; that a big
percentage of the milk of mothers is deficient in properties which,
build up firm teeth and thej advocate artificial feeding
Raisers of livestock were the first to discover the necessity fbi
balanced rations and to consider prenatal conditions. Now the
knowledge gained by the Livestock men is being applied to the human'
j! CITY POPULATION
One.quarter of the people of this country live iq II cities and
j one-tenth are in the three hie; cities of New Y"rk, Chicago and Phil
j delphia, according to the n.v. figures just completed.
New York has 5,621,151
Chicago has 2,701,709
Philadelphia has 132 1,15$,
; This makes a total of 10,146,531, er more then one-fourth the
j papulation of England.
Americans are a nation of city dwellers
There are 68 cities with a population of 100,000 or more, and a
total population of 36,000,000
The ten largest citie each have more than half a million and
I are New York, Chicago. Philadelphia. Detroit. Cleveland. St Louis,
1 Boston, Baltimore, Pittsburg, Loa Angeles, San Frsnemco ami Buf
falo. In the past ten years I,ns Angeles has gone ahead of San Fran
eifeo, although if the ' bay region" was included in San Franc
boundary th latter would have a population of approximated
000, or almost 30U.U0U more than Lo Aj5glt.
