And the way In which the institute has combined practical observations tak.n on a essel In ordinary active sen Ice with tho application of engineering theories and the experimentation ofsevcr-il of its lab oratories lends .pedal interest to tho undertaking. The flrt of a scries of 'ervlcc tests to o. conducted by the oificers and stu dents of tec Jiolocy co-operating with the oihcijls of a local transpu.tation CM"iiany has been made on the ste.im fchlp NantucUrt, which plies in the coast wise tiC-Vlce letween hero and IJaltimore Although somewhat similar tests have been made in tht part, no merchant steam er her ever before been m thoroughly e amlnid in acluil service, with a full car go stowed aw a In her bold and the ordi nary, everjdav life of the ship going for ward as usual Tho Institute partv accounted for prac tically all th" toil conunud In a trip from Balt-moie to oston for the Mi am gcnoiated In he boilers mil the iiropor tiun of it reqjiied for eacli piece of .in- Jiaratus, Including pumps, winches and -raiies, ilvn.iirtos or what not. and the work done in return for the expenditure, not only In propelling tho vessel, but in everj mechanical detail of operating the modern steamer In ordinary traffic illum ination, heating, removal ot bilge water, the loading and dischaiging of cargo and so on.

Here Indicators and registering devices were attached to ncailv everv pipe and mechanism In the ship's vitals and the student engineers worked minute by min ute, and hour by hour from port to port. Now the data thus gathered is being tabu lated and the xarious problems suggested by what was seen aboard the ship are be ins' worked up in laboratories where pipes and valves have been arranged just as they were In the Nantucket's boiler and engine-rooms and all the mechani cal pioce-ses nt nropeling the vessel at sea are reproduced exaetlv on land, where they cn be kept in continuous orcratioa ir.deflnitIv Marine engineers, which are perhaps the most perfect engines vet devised bv man, have one great advantage over railroad locomotives For example, there Is room on n steamship to car. more complicated apparatus than on a steam train, and so, though thee is les oppoi tunltv for refill ing the boi'ers with fresh water, the s ime water suoply en be used over and over agjin bv means of condensers Constantly starting out from the boilers as steam the raw material from which the power is created. o to speak, accom plishes its work In the cjllnders by driv ing the vessel's propellers and then, being eondensed, comes back to the boiler again water niui Eurpusmgiv ime leakage During the tvvtntv-one and a half hours of the Institute's t"st on the Nantucket 1H.S00 gallons of water, or nearly a mllllcn pounds, were recorded as having passed through the boilers and engines, although the original supply was only about 2SXI gallons In imking its repeated circuit the steam nai handled bv a series of pumps and other pieces of mechanism, each of which Is an Important factor In the economy of running the essel. !

It will be in keeping with that of last oir It Is expected, however, that that number will be con siderably exceeded. Another error of fact was the state ment that COO candidates were expected this- jear. It Is pointed out that tals could not be true when there were bc-t 44U vacancies to fill.

"The Bargain nimters" contest is intended to develop the reader's skill as a chopper, just as if he or she were really buying the goods instead of merely making a selection from the adver tisements. NO MOKE THAN ONE ARTICLE OF ANY KAROAIN ADVERTISED SHOULD BE SELECTED; WHOLESALE BUYING OF ANY ONE THING WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED. Every article selected must bp named specifically; the mere fact that "a dollar article" waa bought for 50 cents will not be accepted. CONOiTiONS OF" THE CONTEST. Republic Employes or Their Families Are Not Permitted to Enter This Contest. Owing to the mam- was in which a bargain can be stated it is difficult for Uncle Eke to de-" vihe general rules to coer all the specific cases which might cause doubt in the contestant's mind. So to guide those in this week's contest the following ruling is made upon generally questioned points: Contestants may submit ns many dif ferent estimates as they please, but under no circumstances will .iny per son receive more tlian one award Ilirh contestant must ipeml the sup posed JW to a fraction. No Item will be considered that does not show a avinjr even though it be 1 cent, to make up the even S40. In i slnsle item or bars ll l quoting two or more articles or grades only one can be taken.
