In the past month crude rub

$3 per pound, with prospects for
another boost in the near future.
Mr. Motorist, do you realize
what that means to you? It
means that when you replace
your already costly tires you will
have to dig up from $10 to $25

Incidents ol Building Great Na
val Station In Hawaii
Lund, While Laying the Blasts, Now
Carries a Spsar With Which to Keep
Thsm Away—New Concrete Dry
deok to Be Large Enough Far Any
W. F. Dillingham, who is in charge
of the work of developing Pearl Har
bor, Hawaii, which the United States
government expects to make on* of
the finest naval stations in the world,
arrived at New York recently from
Honolulu on bis way to Washington.
Mr. Dillingham is the manager of
the Hawaiian company which Is dredg
ing and opening up the harbor and
the resident manager in Hawaii of the
bridge company which is building the
"The contract for the harbor dredg
ing was let in December, 1908, and
calls for the removal of 4,800,000 cubic
feet of coral rock and sand from the
reefs which project into the harbor,
making the channel too tortuous for
any but small vessels to get in," said
Mr. Dillingham to an interviewer.
"The harbor basin now has an area
and a depth of water sufficient to float
all the navies of the world. Up to
date no machinery has ever been de
signed for digging coral in a seaway,
and there are about 1,400,000 cubic
yards of it at Pearl Harbor that comes
out in the reef suction,- where it is ex
posed to the surf.
Often Has to Fight 8harka
"How is the work done? Well, prin
cipally by means of divers, high grade
powder and blasting gelatin. We bave
two experienced divers, one a native
Hawaiian and the other an American.
The latter has had a good deal of ex
perience on the Pacific coast and also
in Hawaii. And his work requires not
only skill, but bravery. His name is
Martin Lund. He Is a giant and In
his diving suit must weigh close on to
600 pounds. Lund works eight hours
a day and sets off about eighteen blasts
in that time. Sometimes be carries on
his work with sharks all about him
He often has to fight them.
"You see, the blasts kill large num
bers of smaller fish in the waters, and
every day as soon as the blasting
starts the sharks come around looking
for food. Sometimes you will see as
many us twenty of them at one time.
"The whole outer section of the har
bor has been laid out like a checker
board, and we shoot in squares. Lund
or Olepan, the Hawaiian, lays the pow
der or gelatin on a ledge and fixes the
electric connections. No boring is nec
essary when the pressure of thirty to
thirty-five feet of water keeps the
blasting material in position. When
there are only two or three feet of
water above it is blown up from 400
to 500 feet in the air, but thirty feet
there is hardly a lift of the surface
of the water.
"When Lund bad his first battle with
the sharks be was armed only with a
knife. He bad told some of the div
ing crew that there were lots of sharks
about, but they thought he was only
trying to make it appear that he had
a particularly dangerous job. One day
they felt a jerk at the line and hauled
quickly, and there was Lund slashing
away at something near his feet.
When they bad hauled him in a dead
shark came up to the surface. Then
Lund bad a spear made. I was rath
er afraid that he would decide that he
didn't wish to continue the job, but
when I spoke to him be grinned and
said that as soon as he got his spear
be wouldn't care bow many sharks
there were about. All he wanted was
something to keep them away from
his feet. He bas got so that he pays
no attention to them unless they come
right down at him.
Larger Drydock Planned.
"About three weeks ago Lund was
laying a charge of powder and was
wiring it up for a blast when some
thing made a turn around above him,
and, looking up, be saw a big white
belly overhead. He picked up his
spear and attacked it, and it rose to
the-surface.. 5S*5_cr_w Ja.-the—heat

Lund had aimed at the right spot.
"The drydock as designed an* con
tracted for was to be 420 feet long,
but it has practically been decided to
lengthen it 100 feet and possibly ISO.
Negotiations are now oa between the
government and the contractors, and
it Is expected that the dock to be final
ly decided upon will be large enough
to take in any battleship of today as
well as to meet requirements for years
to come. The dock will he of concrete.
The excavation for the manlier dock
Is well under way, and twe cargoes of
lumber for the false work have been
received at Pearl Harbor. The two
vessels which brought this were the
first of their size to enter the harbor,
the work already done having made
that possible."
An Incident of a Fashionable Wedding
In New York.
Not long ugo one of the wealthiest
"charge customers" of a well known
department store in New York pur
chased a $500 wedding veil for her'
daughter, which was charged to bet'
account and duly delivered. The wed-:
ding was a large one and celebrated at
high noon in one of the downtown
It happened that one of the girls
from a department store went oat for
luncheon at this hour and. seeing a
fashionable wedding in full swing,
slipped into the church with the crowd
and into one of the back pews. After
the ceremony was over she hurried:
back to her place behind the counter,
too busy with her special sales to even
think about it.
The next morning, however, when
she read an account of the "magnifi
cent wedding in church and a de
tailed description of the wonderful
veil worn by the bride, valued at1
$500," she laughingly told her numer
ous friends in that department that
she "had been one of the honored
guests and had seen that $500 veil
with her own eyes." Just at this thrill
ing point of her story one of the floor
men stepped up to her and said:
"You are wanted at the manager's
office, Miss B."
As she entered the office, to her per
fect amazement, she beheld the identi
cal bridal veil just under discussion.
"Miss B.. can you tell me if you ever
saw this veil before?" asked the man
"Yes. sir 1 saw it yesterday."
"Where did you see it?"
She took from her pocket the clip
ping from the morning newspaper
with the account of the great wed
ding, the costly veil and a picture of
the bride. Laying it upon the desk,
she said:
"This is a picture of the veil."
"How did you happen to be at this
wedding instead of in your place here
in the store?"
"It was my luncheon hour, and I
went to the wedding Instead of to
The manager smiled.
"Can you positively identify this veil
as the one you saw yesterday?"
Miss It. took it up in her hands and.
unfolding it, ran her fingers through
the mesh and into the tiny folds where
the orange blossoms were caught, then,
with some difficulty picked out three
little pieces of rice and handed them
to the manager.
She went back to her counter, and'
the "charge customer." whose ac
counts ranged In the thousands each
year, was rendered a bill for "$300
for the use of a bridal veil worn by
her daughter."
A check for the $300 was immediate
ly sent, and the wealthy "charge cus
tomer" still continues to charge.—Chi-i

How a Coal Fire Protects Itself.
A curious way In which afire in the
heart of a coal pile keeps Itself from
being put out is noted in a mining
journal. Such fires often start In the
Interior of large piles of coal owing
to heat developed by slow oxidation,
which is prevented by the size of the
pile from escaping into the air. Such
fires are difficult to put out owing to
the fact that the burning mass turns
the coal around it into coke, which is
nearly impervious to water. The pile
may thus be thoroughly drenched
without putting out the fire, which it
never really reaches. The only way
to deal with the situation is to drive
Into the pile a sharpened iron pipe,
long enough to reach the burning coal,
and then to couple a hose to the uppei
end and turn on the water.
