afttr those in universal use on the rail
ways today to which he had his patent
attached to fhow it in woik ng order so
that the members could see the practical
workiDg of the device. It is plain and
simple, and consists of a frame which fits
nicely into a box and supports a small
wheel mounted on a spring so that it
presses against the lower side of the
journal. In the bottom of tbe bcx oil is
placed to tbe depth of an inch, and the
lower wheel running in the oil carries it
up to the journal; the bearing above acts
as a distributor and keeps the journal
covered with oil over its entire surface
It is its simplicity that
mends the device, and like
otner vaiuaDie inventions the won
der is that it was not designed be'
fore. It was patented May 21. U89, by
Daniels & Ccstley, and las changed
hands several times since. It is now
owned by Mr. Robenson and two asso
ciates, and be has an option i pon each of
their interests, so he can make an offer
for a full title in his negotiations. He
equipped a Santa Fe presenter train over
a year ago with the inventioi, and it has
worked so satisfactorily that he now has
ajcontract to equip all the pessenger
coaches with his lubricator. He also
thinks that be could go right on and get
the contracts to equip every road In tbe
country as fast as the lubricators could
be mmufactured. His plaa is to put
them on the cars on 60 days trial
and an account kept of tbe sav
ing of oil to tbe company
that period, this saying to represent the
payments to be made by the contracting
c mpany till the price of tbe lubricator,
$12 for an 8-wheel and flS for a 12
wheel car, has been met, when the corn
pany will own them, their me, however.
ttf be limited to the car on which they are
originally placed, so that all
new cars made beret fter shall
have new lubricators. He would
manufacture enough either by contract or
special shop, to equip from 100 to 150
cars daily, and bad assurance, that under
hia plan he could make contracts right
alone to use this output, whila the price
made would meet all expenc itures and
afford a handsome profit to tbe manufac
Col. Robenson also suhmifed a writ
ten proposition as thebwis i f organiza
tion and acquirement of the patent, in
which he details the manner in which the
business could be carried on successfully.
Citizens of Galesburg have be -n at work
trying to get the amount of ttock sub
scribed and have succeeded in raising
$150.0(10. but Mr. Robenson would soon
er have tbe stock subscribed here, for the
reason that if it is, it will be taken in lar
ger blocks, and will be more tatisfactory
to tbe promoter.
A full investigation of the natter was
ordered by tbe association, t.nd II

A Manall Blaze.
The fire alarm turned in from Eigh

in the west window of the M. & K. es

had been left hanging over tbe edge of
the window so that it touched a steam
radiator that stands near by. When the
steam was turned on full tbe cotton was
ignited, and immediately the flames ran
up into tbe window, which bad been
trimmed with the same material. Mr
Kohn, who was sitting near the window
at tbe time, had his hands badly burned
