pounds. It replaces the regular tN-or

firing up or for the boiler makers to
do their work the machine can be

The -principle employed: is blowing
the coal in with steam. A hinall en
gine turns a paddle wheel to feed
down the coal in front of a narrow
oponingthe full width of the rear end
of the shovel plate audi three discharg
es of steam, first a hard one for the
further end of the tire box, then a
medium force for the middle of the
box. ami a light on for the part next
to the door, force the coal into the
box. At the front end of the shovel
plate are located' two ad just ible wings
on blades, one at either side, each be
ing curved to direct a portion of the
coal to the sides anil back corners.
There are but two moving parts to
the stoker proper, i. ., the paddle-wheel-
to feet! down the coal, ami an
internal submission rotary valve to
discharge the steam.
The machine is expected to save suf
ficient fuel and boiler repairs to war
rant its purchase, and the hard work
it saves to the lire man by the fact
that he is i-hichhid from the heat of
the tire should inspire him to work
for its success. ,

the rights were r::ther cool; the hit
ler part of the week was warm. Kain
fall was deficient, only a few localities
being fawrci'i with showers. Fall
plowing b progressing, but the work
has been rctaitled in many instances,
on account of the dryness of the soil.
S n. wheal, rve :nd grass seed have
been sown. The acreage sown ill
win at will : how a decrease.
The weather conditions have been
favorable for corn, excepting cool
nights the first part of the week, and
lack of moisture in some localities.
The chief concern now is the date
when the crop will be safe from in
jury by frost. Estimates, furnished
by upwards of ::M correspondents
range from Sept. 1.1 to Oct. 1.1. A very
decided majority fix the date at Oct.
1. The record at the weather bureau
office at Springfield, covering a period
