It AVill Lessen Escape of Smoke by
Use of Combustion Chamber.
Judge A. S. Watts, in the Hustings
Court yesterday, granted a charter of
Incorporation to tin; Morris Smokeless
Furnace Company, with an authorized
capital of ?100,000.
The officers of the company are: T.
J. Wool, of Portsmouth, president; P.
H. Larkin, of Portsmouth, vice presi?
dent; H. L. Maynard, of Portsmouth,
secretary; N. Beaman, of Norfolk,
treasurer; J. O. Morris, of Richmond,
The company has acquired patent
No. (50,855 "for steam boiler furnace
and door therefor." issued to J. O.
Monis, of Richmond, Va., June 5, 1000.
The invention, which is a simple one,
consists of a furnace door, a firebrick
arch and bailie wall constructed be?
neath a steam boiler rearward from
ihe bridge wall, together with a fire?
brick bowl. These parts are so ar?
ranged as io form a combust.on cham?
ber, in which all the products of com?
bustion an? consumed, thus decreasing
i he consumption of coal, materially les?
sening the escape of smoke and adding
to the steam-producing capacity of the
boiler. Tests have been made with
Ibis invention upon Hie hollers of tho
< 'unsiin.er.s' Brewing Company and
Fcntress' refrigerating plant, at Nor?
folk, and the Port Norfolk Railway
power house, at Port Norfolk, with
very satIsfuctory results.
!t i.- claimed that by Hie new for?
me ? ma more than one-fifth of the
ordinary amount of smoke is allowed
to escape, and that the consequent sav?
ing by increased combustion amounted
to 23 2-3 per cent, in the tests which
have been made. These figures are
important, as experiments show that
lt. per cent', of carbonate in steam coal
is not consumed, but goes up in smoke.
Tin: cause of the wreck.
It was said by the Seaboard Air Line
people yesterday that spreading rails

The baggage and express cars were the
only on. which left the tracks, and on
account of the slow rate of speed no

Mrs. Holland Attempted Suicide In Her
Family troubles are said to have
been responsible for an attempt made
by Mrs. Holland, of Norfolk, to end
her life yesterday at the home of her
mothnr, Mrs. Sweet, at Cooke and
North streets. Park View,
f'be attempt was made about 12
lock, and Mrs. Holland had come
from Norfolk only a short .While be?
fore. She seemed in low spirits, and
her net ions struck Mrs. Sweet and an?
other of her daughters, who was in
the room, as strange. Mrs. Holland
appeared to be in a semi-stupor.
While the three were talking Mrs.
Holland placed n note on the table
near which she was sitting and at the
same time took a bottle from her
pocket, and, placing It to her lips,
drank the contents.
Mrs.'Sweet seized the bottle, and in
the struggle for its possession Mrs.
Dr. Gray G. Hollttday and Dr. E. H.
Claude Mere summoned to Mrs. Hol?
land's assistance, and though they ar?
rived in a few minutes after the laud?
anum was taken, found the would-be
suicide in a precarious condition. It
was then that Mrs. Sweet spoke of her
daughter's apparent stupor when sie
arrived from Norfolk, and it was con?
cluded that she had already been tak?
The note left by Mrs. Holland Is
said to have given a reason for her
actions, but. nothing is known of its
contents, except by the members of
the family. Last nigh! one of the at?
tending physicians said Mrs. Holland
