A Substitute for Coal
To Cost $2-50 a Ton. Dr. Henry W. Morrow, a Wilmington chemist, who has made valuable inven tions in the manufacture of wood Jbre, recently gave a public exhibi tion of his now artificial fuel in his laboratory at Third and Market streets, and it was successful in every particular. The correspondent of the Philadel phia Public Ledger saw the fuel moulded into small bricks and placed in an ordinary cook stove, where with in a few minutes there was a fire at white heat. The fuel is made of ordinary earth, treated with a chemical process. Dr. Morrow used bricks made in a hand mould, but estimates what their cost on a large scale will be at $2.50 a ton, with a good profit. The fuel for ordinary domestic pur poses, he says, will burn from four to five hours longer than coal, and under forced draught, such as on steamships, locomotives and in industrial estab lishments, it will burn from two to three hours longer than coal. Any kind of earth, except sand, will do. Some of the bricks burned were made of earth taken from the yard of Dr. Morrow's home at Ninth and West streets, some from along the bank of the Christiana river, and from other places about the city. ;(■ The bricks for domestic use weigh about three ounces, of which 3 per Cent, is coal tar, 90 per cent, clay or earth, the remainder sawdust. ■ v The coal tar -is introduced so that the bricks may lie outside of a build ing, like ordinary coal, and can not be damaged by water or weather. Dr. Morrow showed some bricks that had lain in a basin of water for twd days, and they were as solid as when moulded. The sawdust is used, so that it will burn out in a few minutes, and make the brick porous and admit the heat, but the dust is not a necessary in gredient, as some bricks were burned recently which did not contain saw dust. Coal slack can also be used, and Dr. Morrow burned some bricks which contained about 1 per cent, of that ma terial. The manufactured fuel, while burn ing, throws off no gas or odor, but burns with a bright blue flame of in tense heat. It burns up completely, ■ there being no clinkers, everything in the composition crumbling into fine dust after passing through the fire. The fuel also cleans itself, the outside peeling off and falling into dust as fast as consumed. Dr. Morrow says that the fuel can be used without the least damage to the tubes of boilers or crown sheets. A BLOODLESS DUEL. The Challenged Man Was Bii id ann One Arm Was Help Finely effective but happily bloil less has been the latest Parisian duel. The challenger was M. Jacques Sarcey, son of the late Francisqu,. Sarcey, the celebrated dramatic critic His opponent was that hard hitter with pen and sword, M. Lauren Tailbade, who, however, after man'’ a single combat, has given up duelling, his acceptance of M. Jacques Sarcey e cartel being the exception that prove-i the rules which he has of late years laid down for his guidance. While putting up his sword he has not blunted the point of his sarcasm. Hence the challenge sent by Sarcey’s son. M. Laurent Tailhade in a book review had incidentally made a violent onslaught on the late critic, of whom the mildest thing he said was that Satce in the 40 years during which ho the Parisian stage had “em ployed 12 newspaper columns to drivel in once a week regularly.” Added to this were serous charges agiinst tha critic’s memory, which roused his son’s indignation. Under the cl.ciru stances M. Tailhade broke Ids new rule for once and accepted the challenge. The duel was fought in a wood near Paris, but far from the in discretions of the boulevard, which did not learn of the encounter until it was happily ended. M. Jacques Sarcey is 22, and looks no older than his age. M. Tailhhde’s hair and pointed sixteenth-century beard are gray. The young man discharged CASTOR IA For Infants and Children.

Tailhade raised his weapon and fired at a neighboring tree, scattering some sparrows. Then came the effective scene. Hat in hand, and with a cavalier’s bow, M. Tailhade walked up to M. Jacques Sarcoy. “Sir,” he said, “I felt compelled to accord you the satisfaction which you asked of me. I valued too highly the motive of your challenge not to accept it. But let me tell you, sir, that a duel with me Is a delusion. I am blind in one eye and have lost the use of one arm. Now that I have stood under the fire of your pistol, allow me to say that I am sorry I wounded your filial feelings.” It may be recalled, by the way, that the infirmities mentioned by the writer are the result of his having been blown up in a dynamite outrage some years ago at a resturant opposite the senate. Unable to match M. Tailhaue’s fine speech, M. Jacques Sarcey was con tent to make a handsome bow, whereto M. Tailhade responded with a second and still lower salutation, and the reconciled adversaries parted. It is a pity all Parisian duels do not end thus. —Paris dispatch to London Telegraph. A N-w Hornet’s Nest. When, on that September day in 1780 Lord Cornwallis met in battle the patriots of Mecklenburg, Rowan and the adjoining country, he realized that he had indeed stirred up a hornet’s nest. With the same spirit and love for liberty and the energy that backed it in those trying days Charlotte has pursued the paths of peace until to day she Is a veritable “hornet's nest” of enterprise and industry. Her thrift and energy are evidenced upon every side, and the buzz of machinery has taken the place of the snap of the old flintlock. Factories and schools and hundreds of manufacturing plants bear witness that she is still a hornet’s nest; but the “nest’s” occupants are without stings and extend to the visitors to our great and growing city as hearty a wecome, if not as warm a one, as they did to Cornwallis and his •’Redcoats” 121 years ago.—Charlotte (N. C.) Democrat. ■Wonderful Case in Indiana. Buck Creek, Ind., July 15. —Mrs. Elizabeth Rorick of this place liad rheumatism. She says: "All the doc tors told me they could do nothing for me.” She was very, very bad. and the pain was so great she could not sleep at night. She used Dodd's Kidney Pills, and she is well and entirely free from pain or any symptom of the rheumatism. “Are you still using Dodd's Kidney Pills?” was asked. “No, 1 stopped the use of the pills some time ago, aud have not had the slightest return of my old trouble. I am sure I am completely and perma nently cured.” Many in Tippecanoe County who have heard of Mrs. Rorick’s case nnd her cure by Dodd’s Kidney Pills, are using the pills, and all report wonder ful results. Eccentric. The Witness —I consider the defend ant eccentric. I watched him on one occasion and noticed that he care fully read the same newspaper all through twice. The Court—Did you call his atten tion to it? The Witness —Yes. He said he was color blind. The Court—What did he mean by that? The Witness —He said he couldn’t tell a newspaper that was read from one that wasn't. —Cleveland Plain- Dealer. NEW WABASH EQUIPMENT.

It is now definitely established that consumption is a curable disease. Like every other chronic malady, if it is permitted to possess itself of the system and complicate Itself with other disorders, it is beyond remedy. But taken in time, and dealt with its incipient stages, recovery is practi cally assured. When the character of the microbe became known, it on.y remained to subject it to the condi tions most unfavorable to Its ex istence. Oxygen destroys it its deadliest enemies are pure air and light. Half an hour of sunshine is sure to kill it. And the most effleiet t treatment is, therefore, that which gives freest play to these agencies. Hence, hygienic and dietetic meth ods are of the highest importance. Whatever has been done through medication is of slight value in com parison.

With the new methods it Is no longer held necessary for the patient to seek a climate of the kind that has been sup posed to possess some specific prop erty against the disease. The benefits from mild climates are now seen to be due chiefly to the effects of the out door life that the climate encourages. But whatever the advantages of such a climate, they are liable to be offset by the depressing Influences that fol low separation from home and friends, with consequent melancholy. The expense, for the great majority of pa tients, also bars the way to the change. Therefore, the most desir able treatment, on the whole, is that which keeps the patients near home. This is the conclusion reached by the author of one of the most important works on pulmonary tuberculosis, Dr. S. A. Knopf of New York, who ex presses his thorough dlsbellqf in the l specific curative quality of any cli mate, and therefore would place a sanatorium where It would do the greatest good to the greatest number.
