The National Associatipn of Stationary Engineers will meet In Rochester to mor row, while the International Union of Steam Engineers convened at Denver yesterday. These organizations have been laboring for years In the direction of greater efficiency in ateam engineering. For several years it looked as if steam, perhaps the greatest benefactor the human race has known, and which has contributed more than any other ont mechanical force toward human progress, was doomed to an enforced retirement to the limbo of things which have out lived their usefulness. After the advent of electricity and producer gas. engineers everywhere predicted the time when thy would take the place of steam, which had a full century of almost unchallenged sway. It was found that the electric locomotive had many advantages over the steam railroad engine, and that the only hope of steam was that the cost of electric installation would retard the general adoption of electric motive power for many years to come. It was also found that In marine engi neering as well as in factory practice the use of steam was a wasteful and costly method of deriving power from coal and other sources. Everywhere it seemed agreed that steam was towering on the brink of its grave, and that shortly the boon of yesterday would be the forgotten thing of tomorrow- Even railroad presi dents were wont to predict that in a half century steam locomotives would be as much of a curiosity as the old John Bull in the Smithsonian Institution is today. But now it seems that all these predictions and forecasts are to be given the lie by steam. Some months ago the subway company of New York found that its power plant, which was thought to be large enough to meet all the re quirements of the system for many years to come, already* was proving inadequate. The problem of increasing the power generating facilities of the plant be came a pressing one. To tear out all the compound condensing engines of this plant and to substitute high pressure turbines therefore was believed to be out of the question. It had been demonstrated In engineering practice that a low-pressure turbine can utilize the exhaust steam of a non-condensing en gine to great advantage, but it had never been successfully demonstrated that such a turbine could be hitched to a compound condensing engine. The subway authori ties concluded to try the experiment of installing a low-pressure turbine with a compound condensing engine of the re ciprocating type. ? . ? * The result of this experiment has proved to be one of the most epoch al a k 1 n g Possibilities of the events of * ~ . the engi Low-Pressure Turbine. nerrlng world In almost a century. It has shown that the low-pressure turbine can derive more power from the exhaust than was given by the reciprocating engine. In point of fact, when the low-pressure tur bine was hitched with the compound condensing engine, It was found there was an Increase of 146 per cent In power derived from a given amount of coal. In other words, by utilising . thfi exhaust steam under the old methods the power derived from a pound of coal may be multiplied by two -and one-half. It Is dif ficult to overestimate how much this means to the engineering world. When such installations become general it will result in a vast saving of fuel. But with all the saving effected by the new method of Joint reciprocating engine and steam turbine installation, which method represents a higher degree of eflergy utilization than either producer gas or electricity can show, much yet remains to be desired. This is shown 'by the statement that even with such a new utilization of power as the subway peo ple have made more than one-half of the energy in the coal still is permitted to escape into North river. It is lately announced that a Russian naval engineer has Invented a new process of utilizing all gases arising from combustion, which make him able to convert fully 90 per cent of the energy in his fuel Into power. The method by which he obtains this de sirable end Is Interesting In the extreme. He first takes all of the gases coming from the furnace and cools them from a temperature of about degrees to something like 1,?30 degrees. Thus cooled, h* passes the gases Into a tube with a water spray, where they again are reduced In temperature to about ?W0 degrees. After thus being treated the gases becme superheated steam and in this form are introduced into the boiler itself, where they are utilized with the To Brighten Linoleum. A SPLENDID way to brighten linoleum Is to give it a thorough rubbing with linseed oil and paraffin. Boil the oil and wax together and apply with a brush while still hot. Use only enough to cover the surface and wipe off with a cloth. Dolly it is folly To be thin and melancholy. A daily share Of Campbeirs far* Will make you fat and jolly.

If his invention proves to be the success he believes It to be, the results will be more far-reaching than anything that has occurred in the engi neering world since the time of Watts and Stephenson. Under present engineer ing practice the utilization of 10 per cent of the energy contained in the fuel used is about as much as the average estab lishment can hope to do. The other 90 per cent of this energy is absolutely wasted. If the invention of the Russian works well we may be using the 9i? per cent and wasting only the 10 per cent. This would so affect the conservation problem as to remove fuel from the class of things de manding the pressing attention of the conservationists. It also will overcome nearly all of the trouble experienced as a result of the smoke nuisance. There will be no occasion for chimneys to factories, *? the Russian intends that his boiler shall be a chimneyless one. The use of oil as a fuel in the opera tion of steam engines Is rapidly being proved to be more economical and more efficient than the use of coke. A signifi cant lesson was taught recently by the experiments that have been made with the United States cruiser Cheyenne. With coa! as a fuel used, the steaming rauius of this vessel was 1,300 miles. Since the introduction of oil-burning furnaces it is found that the steaming radius has been increased to 2,300 miles. If this ratio were kept up on all the war vessels of the navy it would give an efficiency hith erto undreamed of. Not only ha* the in troduction of oil as fuel increased the steaming radius of the Cheyenne, but it also has made her a faster vessel. * * A crusade is being waged by the steam engineers of the country against boiler _ explosions. At the Efforts to Prevent present time these Boiler Explosion,. about two a day throughout the 313 working days of the year. In thirty year* In Germany, ending with i907. there were seventy-two fewer boiler explosions In the entire empire than there were in the United States in the year 100? alone. There were only one twenty-seventh as many fatalities connected with boiler ex plosions in Germany in that time as there were In the United States during the year. This ratio is maintained also in the factories of Great Britain, showing that American boiler explosions are more the result of carelessness than of neces sity. Not long asro a boiler explosion occurred In & factory in Canton, Ohio, the results of which were unusually gruesome. The body of one of the victims of the accident was hurled a distance of more than 630 feet. It passed entirely through a house, breaking through the weatherboardlng at both sides as if It had been a cannon ball. The body continued on its flight for fifty yards after having pierced both walls of the house. When a boiler explodes it Is not an In stantaneous action, but a series of actions following in quick succession. First there Is a small hole opened at the weakest point, and the explosion takes place through the extraordinary tension of the gas In its anxiety to get through the hole at once. The energy in a cubic foot of highly heated water Is equal to that In a pound of gunpowder. In a boiler with lflO ruble feet of water space and eighty cubic feet of steam space the totaJ energv amounts to 122,000,000 foot pounds. If this were expended directly in driving a 10,000-pound steam boiler It would be enough to hurl it into the air more than two miles. Several of the Journals of the engineer ing profession devote considerable spare to a discussion of methods for the pre vention of boiler explosions. These dis cussions take the form of correspondence school lessons in boiler operation. It is pointed out that much of the damage done to steain boilers is through care less firing at times when the boilers are not In actual operation. When a factory Is fired up In the morning, before begin ning operations. It is usually done by the night watchman, not by the engineer force. The watchman knows but little about the principles of boiler operation. There Is a movement on foot among the engineers of the country to have all state legislatures enact laws requiring all op erators of steam boilers to be licensed before, they ran qualify as engineers.

EMMA PADDOCK TELFORD. Origin of Word Etiquette. The French word "etiquette" really means a "laber or ?"ticket." How. then, comes it to denote "conventional forms of ceremony"? It is said that a certain Scottish gar dener In charge of Ixiuis XIVs garden at Versailles was very much put out be ou? the courtiers walked over his beds. To keep off these trespassers he placed labels or tlckets-"etiquettes"?at various spots, with instructions as to the proper paths. At first the haughty courtiers did not deign to notice these placards but a hint from high quarters that their walks In future must be within the "etiquettea" compelled their obedience. Thus, according to the story, originated our present use of the word "etiquette " TIMELY HINTS FOR WOMEN READERS A Simple Process. The process of shampooing seems to be one fraught with mystery to many women, yet nothing could be more simple. With a good cleansing agent to rub Into the scalp and on the hair, plenty of soft, warm water and dry towels and shampooing Is as nothing. The only diffi culties attending the process are getting on the soap properly and rinsing It out thoroughly. Without the first the hair will not be clean, and without the sec ond It will be sticky. Soap in cake form is never to be put on the head directly, because the applica tion is so hard that it cannot be evenly distributed. Castile soap, reduced to a jelly by shaving it and pouring over It boiling water which keeps hot for an hour, but does not cake, becomes an ex cellent cleanser. A pint of water to four ounces of soap is a good proportion. This when cold Is a jelly and may be ap plied direotly. . The head is not to be dipped into a basin of water Arst. Rather should water be applied sparingly with the hands, just to make a moist surface, over which the jelly is put. A little more moisture, per haps, may be needed. There must be enough to form a suds over the head when rubbing begins. When a perfect covering of lather has been formed and the scalp begins to feel stimulated the head is dipped into water and those suds are rinsed off. only to have another application of Jelly and a second rubbing. Three and sometimes four separate applications are needed, and all this time the long hair has not been cleansed, though it becomes wet. When the hair about the head is clean, and this is easily known from the fact that when it is so it has a silky, almost creaky feel between the Angers, soap Is put on the long hair, which is rubbed be tween the hands and then rinsed. Two or three different clear waters are neces sary for geeing out all of the soap. Drying Is never to be done by artificial heat, for the natural oils, already absorbed by soap and water, aj-e further dried, and the hair becomes crisp and unmanageable. Rubbing with soft old towels Is best, the friction acting as a stimulus to the scalp. Fanning is another good way of drying, the change of work resting the arms of her who is doing It. and the sun and nat ural wind are ideal. There is no danger of the hottest sun burning wet hair. It is useless to work over the long hair until the scalp has been dried, for the moisture runs down, naturally, and the ends are the last to dry. To dress the hair before It is dried thoroughly is to run the risk of making it musty. MARGARET MIXTER. Packing a Trunk. A slight knowledge of packing will help a girl to keep her clothes looking fresh, though they may be often put into a trunk. It is literally wearing to frocks to mash them down time after time when going away to make short visits in the summer. A large quantity of tissue paper may be regarded as a good investment.. The more sleeves and waists can be stuff ed to hold their original shape the less will they be crushed, and at all cost one must avoid a frock being so placed that it will be mashed down flat. When this happens such sharp creases are made that only ironing by a professional will freshen It. It is a mistake to think that a trunk should be loosely packed; on the contra ry, the tighter everything can be placed In It the less likely are the articles to be shifted when the trunk Is thrown from car to platform and hurled upon wagons. Fnless one has a trunk so built as to stand on end always. It does not matter in what section the heavy articles are placed, for what Is the top at one time will be the bottom at another. Bags of linen just large enough to hold a pair of show or slippers simplify pack i Ing. for stockings to match the pair can be put in with them, and there is less likelihood of forgetting, or of their separating in the trunk. Before putting In a dress it should be laid out on a bel or other large surface, and sheets of tissue paper, crushed to gether lightly, stuffed Into the sleeves until the latter are round, but not hard. The waist Is then fastened, and four or Ave sheets, also crushed, go into that to give It semblance of shape. Then the skirt is taken at each -side down by the hem. and laid out perfectly smooth, after which flrst one side and then the other is laid over to the back seam. The sections left are again folded to the back seam, when the skirt will be narrow, end should be perfectly smooth. Tt Is immediately folded short, probably in two folds. If the waist Is at tached. The bundle, firm and shapely. Is laid on a piece of cheese cloth half a yard long to serve as a cover. This Is pinned down, tight, hut smooth, and the parcel thus arranged Is easily Ilffd Into the trunk. 'So matter how the trunk may be thrown about, the folds are preserved so that few. If any. wrinkles are made In the parking. As soon as possible after arriving, gar ments are to be taken out and hung up, putting tHem into the air If they are creased. Every girl should always have four or Ave folding coat hangers with her, for dresses that are hting on them more quickly lose any appearance of hav ing been in a tnunk. Good Biography a Tonic. A good tonic for the girl who Is short on ambition and long on frivolities is reading of biographies of men and women, who have "arrived" after hard ups and disheartening downs. They reproach her for accepting the limitations of her lot, and sometimes inject into her mind a healthy bacillus of discontent, says the Chicago Tribune. The girl who enjoys biographies enjoys achievement, and vice versa, for the latter point to the former as a source of inspiration and enlighten ment. N It is best to read of the doings of such men and women who have reached the top in your own line of work, for these make the strongest appeal to your will, and If you cannot r*ad between the lines and pick out pointers for yourself you will at least feel the unexpressed chal lenge to perk up and do likewise, If not a little better. Domestic Girl Is Happy. The girl whose sphere is set In domes ticity can And as keen a satisfaction tn doing her work to the very best of her ability as can her sister who achieves college honors, or fame In the literary world. Indeed, there is something pecul iarly satisfying and Ane and healthy about work with t^e hands, becabse, for one thing, it is generally service for oth ers. ' Again, the great mass of women must inevitably And their scope in domestic life, and every girl, whatever her social position may be, would be the better for two years' thorough training in house wifery. says the Philadelphia Inquirer. Therefore, if you are going through your "hopeless phase," try good honest house work as an antidote. Work hard with your hands and at the same time culti vate a cheerful spirit and an interested habit of mind. Gooseberry Jam. Select for this the smooth-skinned fruit, either green or red. It is better when the fruit is not fully ripe. "Top and tail" three pounds of the berries. Wash and put on to cook, with just enough watsr to keep them from sticking to the pan. A cupful will be about right. Cook twelve minutes, then add three pounds of sugar, or two and a half If a very acid Jam Is desired. Cook together twenty minutes, pour into marmarlade Jars and seal.
