,The first of the new equipment of
pay-as-you-enter cars, for which the
Tri-City Eaiiway company has con
tracted to replace those destroyed by
fire in the Moline avenue sheds last
May, appeared yesterday on the Third
avenue line, and brought forth many
expressions of praise. They are the
last word in up-to-date street railway
equipment" There is none better. The
new cars are of two different makes,
the St. Louis Car company and the
American Car company, both of St.
Louis. While the company specifica
tions called for identically the same
design, the American Car company,
either through oversight on the part
of the builders or neglect of the com
pany's own inspector, who was on the
ground, blundered in the end decora
tions, and in addition to the omission
of the pay-as-you-enter sign, did not
provide as large a reel box as the
St. Loui company, and hence the il
luminated designating sign is not so
distinct. In the end appearance the
St. Louis cars are the better, but in
the interior finish the American car
has it on its competitor. The railway
company is disappointed in the failure
of the American Car company to car
ry out the specifications to the letter,
as it sought in view of the large addi
tion to Its equipment to have the cars
absolutely uniform in outside appear
ance. The public in general is so
pleased with the new cars, however,
that the differences will not be ob
served. Superintendent Huntoon today an
nounced that he had received word
that 11 more new cars are on the road
and accordingly he hopes to have the
Fourth avenue line supplied by the
end of the week and soon after that
the Elm street.
Then the perambulating bird cages
that the company has perforce of
necessity been using on the Long View
end Watch Tower lines will be perma
nently retired and it is hoped sent to
the scrap heap.

Charged with the theft of two bush
els of potatoes from cars in the C. M.
& St. P. railroad yards, John Lane,
formerly employed at the Llnwood
quarries, was this morning
bound over to the grand jury under
500 bonds on a larceny charge.
Saturday afternoon Lane entered
the Gould restaurant, 1923 Second ave
nue, and asked the proprietor if he
was in the market for some fine po
tatoes. Upon receiving an affirma
tive reply, he borrowed a gunny sack
and returned with a bushel of them
a few minutes later. He started out
o get a second load, but on the re
turn trip was nabbed by the police.
Lane claims that a car had been brok
en open and that several people were
carrying away the precious tubers in
pails and sacks. He said ho was in
toxicated at the time and was Jiot re
sponsible for his tctions. He told
the police ' he did not break into a
car but that the potatoes he secured
were scattered about the tracks in
Milwaukee yards. Railroad officials
denied Lane's statement, testifying

PIPE SMOKING INCREASING
RAPIDLY IN AMERICA
New Process by Which "Bite" Is Re
moved from Tobacco, Respon
sible for Great Popularity.
"Have you noticed that many more
men smoke pipes nowadays than five
or ten years ago?" asked J. L. Scha
fer, an experienced tobacco man who
is at the Manufacturers hotel for a
few days. "It is no exaggeration to
say," continued Mr. Schaffer, "that
two nii'V.on more men are smoking
pipes now than were ten years ago.
This tremendous increase is due to
the discovery of a process of treating
Burley tobacco to remove the bi'e
"For many years tobacco men
have known that Kentucky Burley is
the sweetest and mildest of tobacco,
but it remained for a Richmond doc
tor to discover the famous 'Tuxedo
Process' which removes every trice
of bite or sting, and preserves the
criginal sweetness and freshness of
That this "Tuxedo Process" does
actually remove all the bite and sting
from the tobacco, is proven by the
hearty endorsement which the tobac
