Very few people are aware, when going
to an auction, that there exists among the
f nrniture dealers, and other gentlemen of
their "kidney" who patronize these places
what is knows to those in the swim as a
On arriving at a furniture sale these
worthies agree not to bid against each
Suppose a rather valuable antique sofa
(which, if we may trust to the voluble
eloquence of the auctioneer, was made by
Noah at about the same time be built tbe
ark) was put up. One of the ring, we will
call him- A, wants just such an article.
The sofa is worth perhaps a couple of sov
ereigriH. A bids for it, and all tbe other dealers
are silent. After a few bids from tbe ven
erable olddames who frequent these auc
tions, it is knocked down to him for five
and twenty shillings. . When a few more
lots are disposed of a fine old armchair is
brought out, which is purchased under
the same conditions by B, also of tbe ring.
Each of these worthies knows perfectly
well what each article is worth, but under
the principle that there is honor among
thieves, none of the dealers ever bid
against one another.
When the sale is over all the ring repair
to some out of the way place. A then puts
up the sofa which waa knocked down to
htm at five and twenty shillings. B raises
the price to twenty-eix shillings, placing
the shilling into the ""pool." C follows
malt and adds his shilling. The others keep
on bidding until a fair sum is reached, when
tbe article is knocked down to the highest
bidder, who pays A the original sum he
paid for the sofa at the auction. The other
money is left in the pooL All the pur
chases are dealt with in a similar manner.
'When all are disposed of, the money in the
pool, which by this time amounts of coarse
to a considerable sum, is equally divided
among the members of the ring.
It may be asked: "Why is such a great
of trouble taken way coma not tne
bnyerf" It must, however; be remem
bered that the policy of such men is "dia
mond .cut diamond" with a vengeance,
and a division of profits among themselves,
instead of the auctioneer getting the bene
fit, is naturally more likely to conduce to
the advantage of them all.
Should one broker by mistake at the auc
tion bid more for an article than itTs after
ward found to be worth, the ring share tbe
loss in tbe same manner as they share the
profits. This, however, very seldom oc
curs. It may be thought the auctioneer does
not eagerly seek the bids of these gentry.
This is often the case, and when their bids
are really too absurdly low he runs up
the price by the aid of imaginary bidders.
But tbe brokers will not go any further
than they think will answer their purpose,
and the lot is bought in by the auctioneer
To make private purchasers transact
their business through them these dealers
will frequently bid against him or her,
and run the article np to about treble its
real value. Had the purchaser "tipped
the wink" to one of their number be would
most probably, for reasons I have stated
above, have been able to obtain it at a
much lower figure. Tbe article would be
put np again in the same way by the
broker, and would make, say, thirty shil
lings. The broker would most likely
charge his client two guineas and pocket
the difference, besides taking his share of
the pooL London Tit-Bits.
The Waste of FaeL
Since in obtaining power from fuel by
means of steam engines upward of 90 per
cent, is wasted in unused beat, while the
power obtainable for use represents scarce
ly more than 10 per cent, of the real value
of the fuel, under the very best conditions
the question arises whether there may not
be discoverable a plan whereby a much
larger percentage of the real value of the
fuel may be turned to account as electric
ity, and through the latter as heat, light
This question has at present no answer.
The subject baa been alive in the minds of
our most-able engineers and inventors for
years, and some have striven hard to find
solution to the problem. Records of sci
entific discovery have been earnestly ran
sacked to find some clew, or, as it were, a
guiding poet to point the way for the un
certain explorer. It now appears that we
may be compelled to await some new dis
covery, some new adaptation or some new
generalization before the way to the much,
desired solution may be found.
The effect on the general industrial and
economic development in electricity which
would follow the discovery of some not too
complex means for realizing an economy
of even 40 or 50 per cent, of the energy
value of fnel is indeed almost incalculable.
