Fir broke oat in the strew stacked
near the Graham Taper mill near
Sears at 12:30 today, and in a few
minute the flames were leaping
furiously, threatening the destruc
tion of the mill, about sixty feet dis
tant, bat fortunately the wind was
in the wrong direction to encourage
ine spread 01 me nre to me null, and
it was conhncd to the straw.
! TtMaaa.au! Tons Antes.
Of this material there were 3,000
tons, and the lire was communicated
by a spark from the smoke stack at
the mill, and owing to the dry nature
of the straw, it was soon a mass of
flames beyond the control of snch
nre protection as could be sum
moned at the time. Tbc two Milan
companies responded, and by means
of a hand pump and the cn.
pine in the mill succeeded in
getting a couple of streams of
water on the burning straw.
Meanwhile word was telephoned to
Kock Island arsenal for the steam
engine there, and with Lieut. Thomp
son and J. W. Law head in charge, it
was sent to Rock Island with all pos
sible haste, and Supt. of Telegraph
Greenough. of the Peoria road, bad
switch engine 3 and a flat car in read
iness to convey it to Scars. Reach
ing there the ensrine was set to work
assisting in putting down the tire and
holding it in check.
The Loa and Inaoraara.
The straw destroyed was rained at
112,000. on which "there was insur
ance of 1. 000 in Hayes & t'leave
land's agency, distributed among
these companies at 11.000 each:
Aetna, of Hartford; Winchester, of
New York; Royal, of Kngland;
Queen, of New York.
John F.vans was arrested this
morning by Officer F.tzel for stealing
a ront from GIockbnfT's milk wagon
in front of the Star blin k. It was in
deed a clever catch and reflects much
to the credit of the officer. Mr.
Glockboff had stepped out of his
wagon and F.vans came alcng, saw a
coat inside and proceeded to swipe it.
Mr. GlockhotT noticed the coat was
gone and hotiGml the police. Officer
Ktxel was detailed on the case, and it
was only a short time until the
sneak thief was nailed and jailed.
F.d Williams, better known as
Blacky,' wss arrested by Officer
Kautx on Vine street lctwcVn Twenty-fifth
and Twcnt v-sixth streets Inst
night. Blacky" is a rather hungry
looking individual, and from nil in
dications is an excellent judge of
foul, for when arrested he bad a bag
in which was found eight of the
nicest chickens. He was taken to
the station and is awaiting for some
one to turn up and claim the chick
ens. F.d claims that he was not the
only one that had a finger in the
chicken deal, and the police are on
the lookout for a man whose descrip
tion was given them by Williams.

Tho idea of using for machinery bear
ings some material developing only lit
tle friction when worked dry and with
out oil is not one of recent date only,
bnt may be said to go back to the time
of tho Romans, as some of the hand
flour mills found at Pompeii have the
lower stone fitted with an iron bearing
which evidently worked dry in the stone
socket of the npper stone. I believe the
wooden axles of wagons which are used
in some parts of England at the present
time to transport heavy grindstones
from the quarries are constructed with
axlea of oak in a similar manner.
Throughout Egypt, in the Nubian water
wheels, which are everywhere employed
for irrigation, unlnbiicated wooden
bearings are used, which appear to wear
very slowly, the surface of the bearing
aoquiring a fine glase. Stone bearings
have also been employed for shafts
In addition to these oiilesa bearings
there are others in which perhaps a
small quantity of grease might have
been employed, such as the leather
bushes need in spinning wheels and the
leather band on that part of the oar
which works in the rowlock may be
quoted as an instance of leather work
ing on wood. Glass has aleobeen tried,
but tbe only kind which has survived to
the present and has been the most suc
cessful of all is tho plumbago bearing.
