There are sonic pleasures that must
1-e lasted ta be understood. Yon
can't imagine them! But once try
them and vou want them! One pleas
ure is the EMPEROR MAN'S SHOE.
No need to go into an analysis of its con
struction you are not a shoemaker!
But you know that you like it. And
that is enough.
You detect instantly a certain air of
quality. There is nothing common
place about it. It is unmistakably an
aristocratic shoe, made of soft, pliant,
extra-high-grade leather. Every part
of it is flexible, so that the foot is not
cramped; the step is easy the tread
elastic the movement graceful.

COIN'S PALACE OF
The Itovk Island Plow company has
just completed and placed in suc
cessful operation, a gas plant for
uciuthe foundry that embodies the
latest ideas iiv providing an economi
cal fuel for forges, and is the first of
its kind to be applied to the manufac
ture of agricultural implements.
The plant for the manufacture and
distribution of the gas has been con
structed in connection witli a cooling
plant, and the two have cost in the
neighborhood of $:!0.000. An addition
to the engine room was built to ac
commodate them. The work has all
ben done by the company's em
ployes under the direction of the
company's engineers, and has con
sumed about three months. The cool
ing plant has been in operation for
several weeks, but the final tests of
the gas plant have been made during
the past few days.
The gas plant, which does away
with the coke furnaces, was furnished
by the Acme (ias company, of Chi
cago. It consists f a series of steel
tanks containing crude distillate of
petroleum. Air is forced through
this oil and is saturated by the evapo
ration of "the latter. The gas formed
is then conducted to the furnaces
Here it is mixed with suflicient air to
insure complete combustion, by means
of suction "tees" . into tine inlet of
which the gas enters, while the other
inlet is connected with air at the
ante pressure as the gas.
Has Sfanr Advantages.
The compressed air for making- the
gas ami for mixing with it at the
furnace is applied by a cross coni-
pound single stage compressor, manu-
actured by the Lnidluw-llunn-Cor-j
don company, of Cincinnati, and is ca
pable of furnishing 150,000 cubic feet
or free air per hour. The gas increas-
s the capacity of the forge shop.
does away with the unsightly piles
of coke and ashes, effects n saving in
the cost of fuel ami makes a more
omfortable fire for the men to work
with, as practically all the heat is
onfined within the furnace.
The refrigerating plant is used to
keep the brine in the hardening vat
used in tempering the working parts
of the implements at a sufficiently
low temperature to be used to the
The plant that the plow company
has installed was manufactured bv
the York Manufacturing company, of
York, Penn. It consists of a 20-ton
ammonia compression machine, an
ammonia cooling and condensing coil
and the brine coding coil. The engine
compresses the amonia g-as to about
to0 pounds pressure in two single act
ing cylinders and delivers it to the
cooling coil. I lus latter is made up
of-dotihle pipes through one of which
cold water is circulated. This con
denses the ammonia to a liouid. It is
tluwi allowed to expand through a
small valve into the brine cooling coil
which is also made up of double pipes,
through through one of which the
brine is to be cooled is circulated and
into the other of which the ammonia
is expanded. The ammonia in
expanding absorbs a large amount
of heat from the brine, leav
ing the latter at about zero
(centigrade) depending on how fast
the compressor is run. The brine is
kept in constant circulation by means
of a centrifugal pump, through the
cooling coils, and hardening tanks.
thus insuring an even temperature of
the brine in the tanks.
, A Decided Improvement
This system presents many advan
tages over the old system of cooling
the brine by means of n cooling tow
er. The brine could be kept' fairly
cool in winter but was usually too
warm in summer. With the brine at
the low temperature at which it is
now carried, it is not necessary to
heat the work so hot to get the pro
per hardness, which is a source of
economy. Also, as the temperature
of the brine varies so slightly the
work comes out much more uniform.
The Kock Island Plow company is
working all departments at the limit
at the present time, and has business
enough in sight to insure a continua
tion of the present conditions indefi
nitely. The output is now larger than
ever' before in the history of the concern.

The machinery for the small arms
plant is practically all in except the
smaller fittings to be made for the

that au improvement on the present
