HILL OWNERS AITS GIRLS.
Had to "Register Out" Until Squabble
The mill owners exert, as far as pos
sible, an influence over the moral tone
of their employes. The average girls
are self-respecting, yet they trifle with
love. The attraction they wish to exert
is ever present In their minds and in
their conversation. Their most impor
tant sacrifices are Invariably for clothes.
They have superstitions of all kinds;
to sneeze on Saturday means the arrival
of a beau on Sunday; a big or little tea
leaf means a tall or short caller, and
so one. There Is a book of dreams kept
at one table In the mill. The girls con
sult It to find the Interpretation of their
nocturnal reveries. They are fanciful,
sentimental, cold, passionless.
Two girls in the seaming room had
got Into a quarrel that day over a pack
era flne-loklng, broad-shouldered
fellow, who had touched both of their
hearts and awakened in each an emo
tion she claimed the right to defend.
The quarrel began lightly with an ex
change of unpleasant comment; It soon
took the proportions of a dispute which
could not give Itself the desired .vent in
words alone. The boss was called In.
He made no attempt to control what lay
. beyond his power, but applying factory
legislation to the case, he ordered the
two Amazons to "register out" until the
squabble was settled, as the factory did
not propose to pay its hands for the
time spent in fights. So the two girls
"rang out" past the timekeeper and took
an hour in open air, hand in hand, fist
to fist, which, as happens to man, had
its claiming effect. Everybody's Maga

news of the wonderful recovery of Geo.

was suffering from Bright's disease of

little relief and less hope. Today Mr.
Ayers is as well as man could wish. He
tells the following story:
"About a year ago I was at West
Camp, sick with Bright's disease and
without hope of ever being better. when
an old gentleman from Bath, N. Y.,
advised me to take Dodd's Kidney Pills,
telling me they had cured him of the

was past hopirfg and told him so, but
when he bought me a box of Dodd's
Kidney Pills and coaxed me to try them
I did so Just to humor his whim.
"That was the means of saving my
life. I took that box and half a dozen
more. Thanks to that old man and
Dodd's Kidney Pills, I am cured.

We are reminded by a correspondent
that "fall" is not the only word of
which the Americans have preserved
the old English meaning. According to
the late Mr. Richard Proctor, the
phrase, "I guess," to English ears so
ridiculous, Is really Identical with the
old expression "I wis," meaning "I
know." The word "guess" has changed
its meaning entirely in England, but
has partly preserved it In America,
where, of course, the native says, "I
guess," when he Is more or less in a
state of certainty. There are many oth
er examples of words that have played
fast and loose with "g" and "w," such
as "guardian" and "warden," "guard"
and "ward," "guichet" and "wicket."

"Polertics Is a trade
that I hain't worked at very much uv

time when I used ter git enthused over

THE USE OF OIL AS FUEL
Railroads and Manufacturing. Plants
Replacing Coal With It.
While New York is without an ade
quate coal, supply, San Francisco Is
comparatively at ease. The reason for
the difference Is that In San Francisco
the use of crude oil for fuel is general.
Other cities are also heavy users of oil
fuel, and in consequence are suffering
much less than ,New York because of
the coal strike.
The use of crude oil as fuel Is at this
time of special interest. There are a
thousand facts bearing opon the sub
ject well known in the oil trade, but
little known to the general public. Dur
ing the past year railroad and steam
ship lines, factories, electric plants,
public buildings, schools and apartment
houses which formerly burned coal
changed to the use of oil.
as companies in the East and South
are replacing coal with oil. At the wa
terworks in Buffalo, Providence and
Galveston, oil Is being used. In New
York the Rapid Transit officials have
begun to consider the use of oil for
generating electricity in their plants.
Cities as far apart as London and
Jersey City are using oil-burning ' fire
engines. In California briquettes of
crude oil pressed solid, are used in hun
dreds of homes for cooking purposes.
The oil briquette is as yet chiefly a
French idea, but it is rapidly 'forcing
its way into domestic economy on the
Pacific slope. The briquettes are blocks
which are said to burn better than coal
and without smoke.
The following statements gleaned
from copyrighted articles by Raymond
L. Bernier In the aNtlonal Oil Report
er, and used in the Sun by permission,
throw a flood of light on the increase
in the use of fuel oil.
"In 1901 more than $10,000,000 was ex
pended in San Francisco alone for coal.
Dr. C. T. Deane, secretary of the Cali
fornia Petroleum Miners' association,
after a careful investigation, reports
that at the present rate of consump
tion of fuel oil, the total cost of coal to
San Francisco will be only about $5,
000,000, a reduction in the use of coal
of one-half in one year. More than 250
manufactories in San Francisco have
discarded coal for oil."
The Southern Pacific railroad has 210
locomotives converted to all burners
and it has let contracts for eight oil
tanks along Its lines, the tanks having
a capacity of from 20,000 to 55,000 bar
rels. The company has decided to equip
its entire system for fuel oil, includ
ing Its, railroads, steamship lines and
Last April, on the western division of
the; Southern Pacific, thirty-nine en
gines traveled o total distance of 100,
000 miles, using oil for fuel. If coal had
been used In these engines,' it would
have required 4,000 tons at a cost of
$20,000. The amount of oil used was
12,000 barrels at a cost of $3,600. The
saving to the company was more than
$1(1.000 more than four-fifths.
The Dutch steamship company uses
oil for fuel. The Hamburg-American
line has recently built four steamships
using liquid fuel. ,The North German
Lloyd line has two steamers of the
kind. - 1
The Santa Fe road Is using more than
twice as much oil as the Southern Pa
cific, or about 1x8,000 barrels a month.
In all the company has seventy-three
engines using oil, and thirty others
will shortly discard coal.
An oil-burning locomotive is being
used by the Northern Pacific road with
a view to burning oil on every locomo
tive on the system. Instead of the cal
being In the rear, it Is In front, giving
the engineer an unobstructed view and
reducing the possibility of accident
The engineer controls the supply of
oil and water by a twist of the valves
In hl3 cab, and so no fireman is need
ed, another great economy in addition
to the decreased cost of fuel. Accord
ing to the Chicago officials of the
rond, the cost of fuel oil is about one
half that of coal.
Fuel oil is coming into favor with
steamboat men and several of the
steamers now plying the Mississippi
and its tributaries are burning it.
All the state institutions in Texas
use fuel oil, and the great smelting
plant at El Paso and similar smaller
ones throughout the state are doing
In the west and southwest, where oil
is plenty and coal scarce, it is natural
that oil fuel should make great prog
ress, yet. what is being done in Call
forla and Texas and the southwestern
states is reflected all over the globe. In
Russia the great railroads are run by
oil-burning locomotives, while the use
of oil fuel is general.
In Philadelphia the United as Im
provement company is using oil at the
rate of l,200,00o barrels a year. Many
manufacturers have substituted oil for
coal Blnce the anthracite strike began.
In Newark there are a brewery, an
iron foundry, a stamping mill, a chem
jtiemedy uo., umcago or iuew xoric
ical works and a crucible steel plant us
In Baltimore oil-heating apparatus
is being installed in the 125 public
schools. A large number of manufac
turers at Springfield, Mass., are using
petroleum In their plants where for
merly thov used hard coal.
Oil lias taken the place of coal at the
Morse Iron works in Brooklyn, and the
president of the company says It Is a
better fuel than coal because there Is
complete consumption without either
smell or smoke.
The government has been experi
menting wltn fuel oil. Last August
there was an endurance trial of an oil
fuel engine at Washington. A boiler
and engine room, constructed on the
same plan and run under the same con
ditions as on cruisers of the Denver
class was operated for 116 hours con
tinuously. The torpedo boats Talbot and Rodg
ers have been fitted with oil-burning
apparatus and put Into commission as
an experiment at Annapolis.
The use of oil in the north and cen
tral and eastern states is not so ecen
omical as In the Bouthwest because of
the distance from the source of sup
ply. Thus the Southern Pacific rail
road shows a saving of four-fifths by
the use of oil,, while the Northern Pa
cific reports a saving of only one-half.
It Is said by those who have used It
for fuel that oil is cheaper than coal at
$3 a ton. It Is calculated that in heat
ing capacity 7,250 pounds of oil is equal
to 2 000 pounds of coal.
The oil is used mostly by means of
spray burners, the fuel being piped to
the furnace under a pressure sufficient
to spray It at the point of Ignition. The
danger of its use Is commonly over-estimated,
it is declared.
The briquette, which Is in general
use in France, Is the preferred domestic
form. Plans are under way at Beau
mont, Tex., for the building of two
plants to manufacture briquettes.
Hiliary S. Brunot, United States con
buI at St. Etlenne, France, says that
the briquettes are composed chiefly of
petroleum, crude or refined, and pos
sess all of the advantages of coal and
petroleum, without the inconveniences
of cither. They weight only half as
much as coal, leave only 2 or 3 per cent
of residue, leave no clinkers, do not
melt or run, burn without smell or
smoke, do not absorb moisutre, will
float on water, do not explode, are not
liable to spontaneous combustion, and
will keep indefinitely, retaining all of
their flames of combustion, give off a
white flame .eight to ten inches in
height, produce twice as much heat as
coal, can be used in any kind of fur
nace and are easy and agreeable to
handle. New York Sun.
PROVED TO BE MATCH.
A Conductor Got the Worth of His
They were both very tough; they
knew it, and, furthermore, they were
proud of it. The conductor of the Man
ayunk car they boarded at Ninth and
Vine streets was a little, weazen-faced
thin-lipped, red-headed fellow, but he
was full of grit He collected the fares
from the two toughs, and then one of
them pulled out a short clap pipe and
filled it with tobacco. The conductor
eyed them as he came in to collect a
fare from another passenger. ir I had
a match I'd smoke this," remarked the
one with the pipe, feeling in his pocket.
"You'll smoke nothing on this car,"
said the littlo oenductor emphatically.
"If I had a match I'd show you
whether I would or not," was the re
ply. "I'll just call that bluff." said the
conductor, and he handed the fellow a
match. Then he went to the front of
the car and pretended to study the cash
register. When he turned the tough
was puffing away, filling the car with
pmoke. With a swift movement the
conductor knocked the pipe from the
unruly passenger's mouth, and before
the passengers quite knew what had
happened be had run the fellow off the
car. Taking a nickel from his pocket
he threw it after him, saying:
Thaw's your fare." ..
By this time the other tough had
recovered .from, his astonishment, and
as he, too, showed fight, the plucky
little conductor treated him In the same
