Coal and
" Clinkers"
Don't always blame the coal if you find
"clinkers" in your furnace.
Clinkers are often the result of the way the fur
nace is handled.
The feed door should never be left open, as cold
air rushes in and deadens the fire and causes clink
ers by suddenly chilling the hot coals, which are
in a plastic condition.
The fire will settle down into a solid mass and
you will have trouble to remove the ashes.
The best coal is liable to clinker from this cause.

Washington. Feb. B.—The lull in the
battle in the Senate over the admin

an end to-day. The Senate had been
in recess since F.iday. Meantime the
Democratic leaders had been waiting
for the arrival of Senator Newlands

come to a vote. Kven with the vote
of Senator Newlands the Democatle
leaders admitted that they could not
defeat the Clarke motion.

their hopes on the motion of Senator
Gore to discharge the commerce com
mittee fro mfurther consideration of I
a substitute ship purchase bill which !
he Introduced last week. They are
confident that with the support of pro
gressive Republicans they can carrv
the Gore motion. In that event the
substitute bill would be brought back
to the Senate and tht Republicans
would be compelled to resume their
defensive light.
With the arrival of Senator New
lands and Senator Smith, of South
Carolina, the parliamentary situation
was changed. Senator Smith had not
been expected to return on account of
serious illness in his family. With hts
vote and that of Senator Newlands.

vote on the motion to recommit with
instructions. Then the Vice-president
would be relied upon to cast the de
ciding vote.
As soon as Republican leaders
learned of the return of Senators
Nelands and Smith, a conference was
called to consider plans of action.
