Colonel Drew, Is never of a danger nu

proptr refining 9wh sn nil may burn,
but not ns wi4l as a water white oil, and
also has a tendency to clog the wick or
produce disagreeable and unhealthy
produrts of combustion. Oils also vary
as to their density, the lighter, more
volatile and more easily Inflamed being
the cheaper ami more dangerous. Thoy

teach this, while the denser kinds, some
lime known as mineral sperm, head
light till, snd by other fnnry namos,
dies not ltllame until IWO" F. Of
course this latter oil is the safer for all
lists, as lamps containing It arc safe from
explosion or Ignition If the lamp Is over
turned. Unfortunately the proportion
of this oil in petroleum is to small, and
the cost of preparing It so much areater
than In the case of ordinary kerosene,
that Its ptlcc Is very much higher than
ordinary oil, and precludes its use ex
cept for localities where absolute safety
and the best light Is desired, nor will nil
burners work satisfactorily with this oil.
Ordinary kerosene can be found In
many grades and varying prices, nnd It
Is Impossible for the purchaser to tell
what he Is getting, but the price Is, with
reliable dealers, n fair gauge. The
cbonncst Is. by police regulation, within
the limit of oidlnary safety, aside from
carelessness and accidents, while the
best, with the duplex or araand
burners, gives a much superior light
and with proportional safuty. One's
means must decide the question of
which to use.
Lamps of almost any form will burn
tliu common oil-, not all with equit
safety, however. For the better oil the
duplex or argand burners are ndvlsvile
01 ticceseary, either lo provide for the
primer combustion of the ollornsuf

wick, ami the oftener the lamp is tilled

A lamp which has had cloudy or c!
nred oils In it should be thoroughly
ckancd and new wicks Inserted before
using a new oil, nnd It Is necessary to
boll out the burner from time to time
with soda lye or washing soda to re
move the gummy mattur which acottni
ulatts upon them. Mixing of good oils
can do no harm.
With a good lamp In good condi
tion, that Is to say clean ami tilled with
good oil, bad results may be due to
1. 1 no wick, wicus are seiiiom or
inferior qualliy. but may he too closely
or loosely woven or not tit the wick
tube of the lamp. If too loosely woven,
especially with the cheaper oils, the oil
continues to creep up the wick when
the lamp Is not In use and spreads an
oily 11 1 m all over the outsldu of the
lamp, A better oil or more closely
woven wick Is the only remedy for this,
and as a rule the cheaper the oil the
denser the wick should be. When the
wick does not lit the tubo It may be so
large us to be unduly compressed and
thus prevent the llow of oil, or It may
be so loose as to Jar down. Several
changes in wicks are often necessary
before finding one suited to the lamp
and nil.
S. Clogging of the wlek. As has
been mentioned, bud or old oils gum
and clog the wick. The remedy for
this is a belter oil after Inserting new
wicks and cleaning the lamp. He sure
the nil to bright, not cloudy and water
3. Wicks too short. The wicks uny
not reach the level of the oil la the re
ceiver, or it may be too far away from
the name. When the lamp is nearly
empty this Is advantageously not more
than live laches from the Hame.
4. Trimming Scissors never should
be used oa wicks, or, if they have beea,
the wick should be treated as a new
wick, as follows: The new wick should
be put lu the wick tube of the burner
after saturating it with oil, aad then,
without immersing it la oil In the re
ceiver, lighted and allowed to burn out.
A gentle rubbing of the wlek surface
turned low will then give an eves aad
good wkk. The retaovalof charted
and crushed porttoas of the wick by
rubbing in this way should be repeat!
as often as made necessary by the use
of the lamp.

successor, being n prolectlonTit, was In

would support It."
The uniformity with which Demo

rimoval of K M. Li (kwrodof Hurling

Jlr. I.ockwood received a letter from
Representative Harrison Kelly, saying
that his successor would likely be np
pointed within tbreo weeks, and offer
ing him the opportunity of resigning.
Sir. I.ockwood did not resign and he
was removed. Squire M. Lane was up
pointed to the place. He Immediately
appointed Sir. Kelly's daughter to a
place In his olllcu and afterword made
her assistant postmaster.
It Is clear to the committee, says the
report, that the numerous changes,
more than (il per cent, of all the Pros!
denllal postmasters, has been In a groat
measure political. Mr. Clarkson, In an
interview sent through the United
Press to all the leading newspapers in
the country, is reported assaying: "The
I'tesldentbna made no removals except
for cause, for delinquency, InelUclency
or violation of law. He refused to make
any changes for partisan reasons."
"Our Inquirlee," says the committee,
"have led us to the conviction that this
declaration cannot be true; and, in our
opinion, It would have been more Just
to have acknowledged the existence of
political Influences."
This would have involved an Incon
sistency with the promisee of the last
Republican platform: that the "spirit
ana purpose of the Civil Bervlce law
should be observed in all Kxecutlvo ap
polntments." Hut, where the fact la as
clearly established as it is In this case,
the avowal of such inconsistency would
have been far better than the attempt to
conceal it by giving reasons for the
changes, which, In point of fact, are
not the reel ones.
.It was indeed hardly to be expected
"that the spirit of civil service reform"
in the PostotHce Department could be
enforced through such Instrumentalities
as Mr. Clarkson and Mr. Waaaruaker.
Mr. Clarkson has been openly and con
spicuously au opponent of the reform.

of a charge of arson, after a long trial.
Last April the Grand Opera-House was
set on tire, and in August last Williams
was arrested on the cvidenco of a man
named Morrow. On tha trial Morrow
swore that Williams proposed to him to
burn the opera-house. Morrow's wife
and sister swore to having overheard the
plot. The defense showed that Mor
row's character was very bad, and the
women of like cuaraoter, and that it
was spite work. The whole trouble
grew out of a feud over politics.

Trie nent Test nt th Nsvat lrvlmt
tttnnmt set rn t tne xpeettten
er the aianefaetnrers,
arTowK, Sot. 15.-A pwcltl to
IWn Tnhnne ttm Washington ssys:
As a supplement of the petfomiftSKse of
Ihe llotteet and Plrmlny nrojectfles at
the armor-plnte test at AbbmipbHsv comes
the trial of Amertenn pmjeclllee st the
rmval proving grvmml. For a long time
claims of the superiority of the domes
tic shell have been urged, but in this
nnllke the Instances of American ord
nance, the resn'ts do not strs'.aln tie
the representations of manufacturers.
The test this week at Annapolis of these
shells Is valuable only for Its develop
ment of the weakness of American pro-j-ctllts
snd their man! rest inferiority
tn the foreign shells. At least this Is
the conclusion justified by the report
of the officers who conducted the test nt
Thesrmor-plale test where Ihe Holtzer
and Flrminy shells were used developed
Indisputably the superiority of the
former. Some allowance was made for
the condition of the plates nn the second
day's assault when the Flrminy pro
jictllt'S were fired, and the deductions
advanced were possible for contra
diction. The opinion of the experts,
however, secmetl to lie in favor of the
lloltrer. This week's tests, according
tn the official reports, do not alter this
condition of merit.
At the last test there wero presented
for trial four sholls. tha Storling, tlio
Redcmann-Tllford, the Cnrpsntor-Firth
and the Holtzer. The target used was
n compound plate 111 Inches In thick
ness, nnd corresponded to the nrmor of
the Minntonomah. Previous firing had
rendered It somewhat untrustworthy as
nn 1 fleet! ve target, but that faot made
tha performances of the projectiles tha
mora easy. The gun used wns a bIx
Inch breech loading title, nnd the mitx
7.I0 of the gun was 203 feet from the
Tha powder charge was forty nine
pounds, nnd tbu projectiles weighed
each 100 pounds Tliu velocity at tlio
n.uzrla was 2,020, nnd at tbo striking
point 2,000. Tha same rclntlve condi
tions of firing were supposed to govern
the test, nnd the points uf Impact wore
selected as nearly as possible with a
view to equality of circumstance. This
equality, the bonrd say, was obtained In
all cases, tnva possibly In that of tha
Ridoninnn-TIIford shell, where tha re
tlttanco wns considerably less at the
point of Impact than In tlio other three
00 res.
The llrt round was with tliu Sterling
projicWe, which ticnotrated the plato.
The si ell broke up, nnd a portion of
the bcfcd was greatly distorted. Six
suifiice cracks were started nnd onu
short circumferential crack, while the
old cracks, results of a former assault,
were opened. Tha second round was
with the Reilemann-TIl ford shell. Like
the Sterllne, It wns broken up nnd a
portion of "tbo head distorted. It re
mained In the plate. The Indont in the
target was 5 Inches. The dlsturbtnces
were minor, but tha board met the
problem of the dlffuionces in resistance,
and concluded that there was llttlo
choice between the Redemann-Tilford
uml the Sterling shells.
The Cnrpenter-FItth sholl was used
In the third round, the projectllo pene
trating the plate until the point struck
tbu wood backing, when It rebounded
entire, and was picked up thirty feet
from tlio target. Thashell on measure
ment was found to be shortened 43-100
of nn Inch. A thin scale had bean
pealed off the plate In two places anij.
numerous cracK were ousorvcti. riecee
of tha hard steel facu of the plutu
in the shapo of a trapezium dropped
from the top of the plato to the ground
and a triangular piece, sixteen Inches
across the top, was started.
The Ilolt.tir shell was tired In the
fourth round, and was found to have
penetrated tbo plate. It remained in
the backing, the base of the shell being
11 Inches from tbu face of the plato.
Tha base showed no signs of Injury.
There were nineteen short radial cracks,
and a new radial crack to a former ten
inch Impact was opened. The hard
steel was started and bulged to the
front In a number of places, but only a
small portion fell to the ground.
The experts who represented the
Naval Ordnance iluroau at this test
head the projectiles in the order of
merit with the Holtter, according to the
Firth the second place, snd declaring
equality of performance for the Itle
mann Til ford and Sterling.
