The Various Machines and How they Work
Attempt! at Improvements.
Tee Chicago Daily News has the fol
lowing concerning street weeping de
vices, a matter to Which the Rock 1 Bland
council has given more or less attention
of late, having recently determined to
try the m .n with a broom scheme as an j
experiment the coming season. I
To the average citisen the street-
sweeping machine is an object of aver
sion and the ccuse of more or less pro-
faulty. Ii comes twlthing along just as
he is going oat for the evening and kicks
op a cloud of dust which settles on his
new silk hat and fills his eyes and month
with the sediment of city life and traffic.
The sweeping michine, how. ver, is the
result of a good deal of careful desicnlna
and inventing, and lacklets inventors are
all the time spending their time and
money in the effort to gel up new and
Standard Sweeping; Machine.
The standard sweeping machine is the
simplest form that can be gotten up; for
simplicity is a necessity to which all other
theoretical advantages have yielded. A
two-horse sweeper costs the city ?450.
It has a large pair of wheels behind und
a small swiveled truck in front. Undt-r
the rear wheels is hung the - cylindrical
broom, wmch is about 10 feet long, and
which, when new, is about three feet in
diameter. The brooms are used, how-
tyer, until they are worn down to lees
than half that diameter. They are made
of material called baas or of raltn.
Sometimes bass and rattan are mixed.
E-peciaily good results are claimed for
the combination, as the stiff rattan d;gs
out the mud, while the finer bits sweeps
away tbe dust.
The broom is Lung at an ancle of CO
degrees to tbe line of travel of the sweep
er, which inclines it 30 degrees to tne
nam axle. A countershaft takes the
motion from the revolving ax!e, through
bevtle gearing, and a eproket chain runs
don from the coaotarsha'l to the
broom. The glaring is usually so pro
portioned that tbe broom makes three
revolutions to one revolution of the rear
wheels of the sweeper, and in the oppo
site direction. The broom can be lifted
up and thrown eul of eir by the driver
when tbe machine is not sweeping.
The d rt is tumbled over and over by
the broom, which gradually works to tbe
right hand side and leaves it there in a
windrow. The two-horse machine
sweeps a swath about eieht feet wide
Kamberof MUea Covered.
Twenty miles is couB.dcred a good
nig it's work for one midline and pair oi
Dorses. As the machine must travel back
and forth from four to six limes to sweep
a 6 tree t, it can sweep completely only
from three to five miles of streets in a
tiigbt. Ia Washington they use large
four-horse swiejiers, because they cm be
bundled to acvnnttze in the broad ave
nu(S of tbe ca,,i;al. It would bo too
mii.-h bother turning them arouud
in New York 8 narrow thoroughfares.
With the arrangement of brooms de
scribed each panicle of dirt is swept
diagonally across the street any if it is ou
the extreme left it will be carried axut
forty feel forward in eider to get it eight
feet across to the windrow where it is
dropped. As the joints of the pavement
run straight across at right angles, ii is
evidently desirable ihat the broom should
sweep along these joints. Not only would
fie joint then be cleaned out, but tbe
dirt would be swept directly to the wind
row instead of being tumtiled over and
oyer while tbe machine is traveling forty
leet. One engineer recently built a m -
cbine tnat did sweep exactly at right
angles across the street, but it ran bard
and took snore horses to pull it, and the
mechanism wasn't quite so simple as that
oz me om macmne.
"Pick Up" Devloe.
Another object of much invention is
tbe construction of a good "pick-up'
machine one that picks up and carries
S itsewn sweepings instead of leaving
laesn in me windrow. Home nave been
built that worked fairly well on a smooth
asphalt pavement, but they are likely to
let out or order ana work imperfectly
while a rough pavement knocks them out
Dr. 8mitb, formerly health officer of
New York, has spent over a thousand
dollars en a pick-up machine which he
bad u exhibition at the last American
institute fair. It bad the ordinary form
tl broem, but instead of dropping tbe
windrows of dirt in the street, it depoe
t d tl on a belt which carried tbe tii.l up
and dropped it into a box. This
picked tip about three-fourths of the
dirt, but tbe other quarter was left in
the shape of a little windrow of stuff
that was thrown beyond the belt. So
tie problem is still unsolved in an en-ti-ely
practical and satisfactory manner.

The Nest of the Kingfisher.
Our American belted alcyon, or common
kingfisher, is an expert hole borer. There
is scarcely a clayey bank along the streams
of our middle and southern states but has
its face cut by the door of one of these
gloomy looking houses.
The hole is usually quite round, and goes
directly into the bank, with a slight up
ward slant to a distance of from two to
four feet, where it turns nearly at right
angles to one side or the other, ending in a
large, jug shaped pocket, where the eggs
are laid. The kingfisher is my most cheer
ful companion when I am out for a day's
or a week's angling. It is an ever fresh
delight to watch him swooping down into
