GOOD MATERIAL FOR BOILERS Variety of Pumice Stone Is Coming Into General Use in Japan—Has Many Advantages. "Koku Seki" is a variety of pumice stone which, ti' far as now known, , reports Vice Consul H. T.

Though used In Niijima from ancient times as a build ing muterliil. only comparatively re really lias "Koku Seki” become known commercially in Japan proper.

Few have realized that peat might replace coul and break to a large ex tent the dependence of some of the northern states upon distant coul 1 mines. For several months a Minneapolis company has been engaged in the prep aration of peat for fuel, said to be the only enterprise of its kind in the coun try. A machine has been perfected that digs, macerates und spreads out to dry "mi tons of wet peat in a day or a quantity sufficient to produce 100 tons of dry fuel. That's how much peat j contracts in the drying process. One man operates the machine.

A crusher plant, with a capacity of, ,-|iio tolls of peat a day. has been built i in Minneapolis during the winter to produce powdered peat, and in the spring ten peat digging machines are to he started on the Minnesota hogs.
