blades set at an angle to the direction
of the flow of steam. The first row
of blades encountered by the rush of
steam deflects I.t Cram its course , so
that It would not effectually operate

NOT ON HIS OWN TIME.
. : , Sick Man Would Not Go to Hospital
In Dinner Hour.
Charles M. Schwab , on the day 110
sailed for Europe , said that he believed -
lieved America offered to worltlngmen
more opportunities than any other .
"The workingman , though , " he add-
ed , "must be of the right It\nd. \ He
must not be like the Greek I heard of
'rhls chap , having come to America - ,
cn , secured a good laboring job at $11
. a : week. But he did not get on well
+ b He was continually afraid of doing
" r more thEm ho was paid ) for.
"They say that a gentleman passing
one day the new building the Greek
, was working on saw him lying on his
; . ; , , . stomach on the sldewallt. Ills face
" was pale : a succession of loud groans
arose from him.
" What Is the matter ' with that (01-

are stationary and their use is to
again alter the direction of the flow
of steam and bring It back to the
straight course from one end of the
cylinder to the other before It encounters -
counters the next succeeding row of
working h'ladeR Time tips of the revolving -
volving blades almost scrape against
the casing of the cylinder , and the
stationary blades almost touch the revolving -
volving shaft 01' drum. Thus there
are practically a series of turbine
wheels on one shaft , and the steam
after llerformlng Its work In one tur-
bine , say the high pressure , passes to
the Intermediate , thence to another
01' to the low pressure turbine , all the
while gradually diminishing In pressure -
sure and gradually expanding. It will
be seen that there Is no friction in
the turbine and no wearing parts save
the bearings on which the main shaft

To Pay for Irrigation.
A proposition Is now on foot to irrigate -
rig-ate pertain parts of North Dakota
and eastern' Montana whereby the
government Is to put In irrigation
canals and the settlers are to pay $25
au acre for the service , payable In ten
annual Instalments of $2,50 each
re"olves. From the low pressure tur-
bine the steam passes to the con-
denser and thence back to the boiler ,
where It I'e-ellters HI pure water , Inasmuch -
asmuch as no Internal lubrication Is
required In the hll'blnes After many
experiments , it is now Ilemonstmtod
that time new vessels will be able to
come to n. dead stop from full speed
In a shorter time than If driven by reciprocating -
clll1'ocating engines : while their maneuvering -
neuvcrlng power will be unsurpassed
by any steamers aUoat. To the engin-
eering profession the adoption of rotary - ,
tal'y engines means Increased , speed
for the same boiler power , due to
reduced weight of machinery and increased -
creased economy In steam : time cost
of ull-l\Cep is also less : while there
will he a smaller engine room stat
and n. IIltnlnlshed bill for lubricants.

BREAKING THE NEWS GENTLY

A political lieutenant once announced -

"You have broken this news gent-

1'hls Irishman had great faith In his
diplomacy and delicacy , and ona tlay
when a boy was Itllled at the quarry
he tolll the men to leave everything
in his hands , and he woulll hr2uk the
news to the hoy's mother us it shol1Jd
