An Idyl of Summer Days Passee Drifting Down the Ohio Rivse
By The Rev. Sumuel W. Traum
Speaking of vacations, I am remind
ed of one that in its way waa different
from that usually taken by men, and
I take it that it is enough different to
be of interest to some one else.
In the early summer of 1905 I took
what was called "the long trip" on
the steamer Falls City up the Ken
tucky river. Just to think of a trip
of 212 miles up a river that is so nar
row that I could throw a stone from
bank to bank at any point in the en
tire distance. A system of "locks"
makes the necessary depth for push
ing up this defile. Some friendly pas
sengers on the boat, who at any rate
pretended to have been much travell
ed volunteered the information that
the cliffs along the Kentucky rival In
their grandeur and rugged ness the
Palisades of the Hudson. Of this
statement's accuracy 1 have no proof.
but am inclined to believe that if the
Palisades are more beautiful than are
the hills of the Kentucky they are
worth going across a continent to see.
I took shipping at Madison, Indiana,
a city oi some ten tnousana peopie,
the second oldest settlement in the
state, and a one-time rival of Indiana
polis. My wife and daughter were
with me. I happened to be personal
ly acquainted with the steward of the
boat and I felt that it was not tres
passing on that friendship to accept
the many additional kindnesses and
comforts which lay within his power
to bestow. It was nine o'clock at
night when the boat pulled in. The
moon was shining brightly and the
broad expanse of the Ohio made a
beautiful picture as we pushed out to
midstream and made our way for Car

a dam, raising the waters to a height
of eighteen or twenty feet. At one
end of the dam a huge stone box has
been made large enough to contain
our steamer. At the upper and lower
ada of thU "box" ara placed
These are in the form of a letter V
with the apex of the letter up stream.
If now you will think of a pile of these
letters laid over on their side and pil
ed as high as the lock you will be
able to Imagine something of the
shape of these gates. By means of a
wrench operated from the top of the
lock, iron shutters are opened and ;
closed at the bottom of the gates and
by means of these the water is con
fined or released, as the operator de
sires. If the upper gates are closed
and the "shutters" of the lower gates
are open, the lock can be drained until
the water in the lock is on a level
with the water below where the boat
lying. This makes it possible to
open the gates, the "letter V" pulling
apart at the point and opening as wide
the lock itself. This gives room
for the boat to enter, after which the
gates are closed and the "shutters' in
the upper gates are opened allowing
the lock to fill with water, until it
reaches the level of the water as high
as the dam has raised it, after which
the upper gates open and the boat
passes out into the stream above, but
has gained in elevation the height of
the dam. This then makes a body of
water of sufficient depth to carry the
boat to the next "riffle" when anoth
er lock is put in, and so on to the
head of navigation. Thirteen locks
and dams in all, have been completed.
Trip by Daylight.
I have made this portion of the trip
number of times and inasmuch as
my first trip up the river to a distance
of forty or fifty miles was made by
daylight, instead of night as my read
ers may have been led to conclude
from what has already been written, I
am tempted to go back again to Car
rollton and come over this portion of
the river by daylight. At the Junction
of the two rivers, the Kentucky and
the Ohio there is a depth which it is
said the plummet has never reached.
The traveller who enters the river at
this point sees a narrow chasm, doubt
less created by some great geological
cataclysm, and is at first disappointed,
especially if in reaching Carrollton he
has been moving on the broad ex
panse of the Ohio, the river which
Bayard Taylor has called, La Belle
Riviere. Almost immediately, either
on the one side or the other, and fre
quently on both, will he note the pre
cipitous banks, and will see that at
the very edge of the stream the water
is of sufficient depth for the steamer
to push "her nozzle against the bank,
till the last galoots ashore."
Unfeigned Delight.
But this early disappointment soon
gives way to an unfeigned delight, as
now by the world forgotten, he is en
abled to forget the busy world out of
which he has come, and he uncon
sciously yields himself to the enchant
ment of the new world into which he
is going. In a single continuous line
sometimes running for miles will the
sightseer observe rafts of logs which
have been towed down from the
mountains of Kentucky, or which may
have drifted to their present mooring
under the skillful pilotage of some
mountaineer." Craft of every kind
floats upon this stream; the stately
steamboat and the gasoline launch,
the house boat and the "John-boat"
are all at home upon these waters. All
sorts and conditions of men, of every
vocation and color will be seen along
the way. So different is this - new
world, so unlike the busy, hustling
world out of which he has emerged,
that one soon finds himself taking on
some of the same lethargy that seems
to possess men and nature alike.
Hurricane Deck.
So soon as the steamer comes In
sight of the lock the passengers with
one accord find their way forward on
the cabin deck, or else dividing into
squads will go aloft to the "hurricane
deck." As yet they are not well
enough acquainted with the pilot nor
the officers of the vessel to be per
mitted to enter the pilot house; or the
Texas," that portion of the upper
part of the vessel used as quarters
for the officers and crew. But rest
assured that before this trip is con
cluded every last one of them will at
some time or other have extended
them the courtesy of visiting these
covetted spots. But just now, from
whatever vantage point may be gain
ed, each is busy with securing for
himself a sight of the lock and of the
methods employed in "locking
through." Nor does the process tire
the tourist, for on the return trip
there is shown the same keenness to
observe every particular as there was
on the . way up.
Iridescent in the sunlight and spark
ling as with a million diamonds is the
sheet of water that pours over the for
midable wall of masonry that has
blocked the way. The formntion of
the lock we have already described.
The pilot has signalled the engineer
for slower speed and finally all pow
er is shut off and the vessel glides
into her temporary prison. An iron
ladder imbedded in the masonry af
fords a convenient way for the
r'rousters" to scale to the top with
rope in hand by which when the wat
ers have grown turbulent In seeking
to burst out of the stone walls, the
vessel may be held in tow. The wis
dom of this course is seen so soon as
the waters come pouring in.
Variation of Sights.
It is when the vessel is going down
stream that variation is given to some
of the Bights. At the bottom of the
upper gates there is what is called an
"apron" a level space of some eight
or ten feet in width and upon which,
when the water has rone below that
level will be seen fish, floundering.
The "roosters" take full liberty now to
help themselves. They climb down
the slimy sides of the gates and begin
their struggle with the fish. It Is al
ways a matter of amusement when
one is captured to see the "darky" put
the fish away within his blouse, fthfr
waistband of his trousers making a
bottom to the "creel." It must be a
rare sensation to have a live fish next
to one's naked body. It is some com
fort to know that the "roosters- have
tft nrlYilam of i-Uf Umn flak for
extending their own, and not the pas
senger's. btH-of-fare.
At seven o'clock in the morning the
call comes for breakfast. On that
first morning it is a ssfe guess to say
that no one is tardy for his morning
meal. It has been a long time since
we arose and we are indebted now to
the steward for his contribution to
the enjoyment of the trip.' Just now
at our first meal we are strangers to
each other but before we will have
reached our home again our list of ac
quaintances will have become extend
ed to the number of people aboard.
I do not recall now the exact hour
that we arrived at Frrmkfort, Ky the
capital city, of the state. But I do re
member that when we came to the
wharf-boat and had made fast that the
captain assured us that we could
have "stop-over privileges" for a num
ber of hours. These hours we used in
sight seeing, sending post cards to
friends at home and a general "rub
bering" expedition. We stood on the
square of marble that is imbedded in
the . pavement in front of the capital
and which marks the spot where Gov.
Goebel fell on that day when he was
assassinated. We climbed to the room
wherein it was said that the assassins
stood, when the shot was fired. We
noted the differences in customs and
the difference in the way of "doing
things," and did not leave until we
were warned by the blasts of the
steamer's whistle that our time had
expired. ,
Banks Less Steep.
It was now well along in the after
noon. The banks were less steep and
the country seemed to be more level
than at any point along our journey.
but erelong the gorges began to deep
en and we realized that we were once
more in a hill country. The day had
been delightful thus far and many
pleasant memories were- ours. One
think I should have mentioned that
we saw in Frankfort was the winding
stairway in the capital which Is Its
own support, and is said to be the ar
chitectural wonder of the world.
I do not reemmber the name of an
other county through which or along
which we passed, and have only faint
recollection of some of the sights of
fered us. I cannot recall them in the
order in which they came and feel
that it would be to me a trro of un
usual interest to be permitted to go
over this same route again. But I do
remember that as night came on and
the searchlights were brought into
play that I saw some of the most beau
tiful scenery that my eyes ever be
held. Along the' Ohio river the pilot
steers his vessel by the lights along
the shore. These are so placed that
by keeping the prow of his vessel to
ward them he will always have a safe
channel. Just as soon as another light
comes into view the pilot no longer
steers by the one that he has just us
ed. When there is a dense fog so that
these lights are obscured thre re
mains nothing but to tie-up till morn
ing. But on tbe Kentucky, the stream
is so winding that such a system of
lighting is impracticable, hence the
steamer uses her searchlights, and by
means of these the banks on either
side are always kept i" "Jew.
When I think of th? jauties shown
by these lights I feel just how poor
are any words of mine to describe
them. The tints of the foliage are so
different, hues that are not discover
able by the actinic rays of the sun,
and always presented in duplicate, for
the waters serve as a mirror upon
which are faithfully reproduced in the
waters below the beauties that are
just above.
Vl.d With Nature.
Man has vied with nature in pro
ducing great things. As for instance,
near Tyrone there is the bridge of the
Louisville Southern railway, 1658 feet
long and 266 feet above the river.
The center span is 555 feet long and is
the longest cantilever span in the
world, so I am told. Then at Shaker-
town is the more famous High bridge,
1125 feet long and 286 feet above the
river. At Hickman, at a height suffi
ciently above the water to admit the
stacks of the steamer at high water
mark is an old wooden bridge that has
been standing since 1S3S. As wonder
ful as these are as tbe engineering
feats of man they lose much of their
interest by reason of their surround
ings. The towering cliffs that rise
in almost perpendicular heights, com'
posed as they are of strata of rock of
every conceivable thickness and color,
overpower the beholder by their very
grandeur. Some one spoke of them as
the battlements of the world, standing
stern and erect in their massive pro
portions exposing their bold fronts
against which the storms of ages have
beaten and reproduce for us the fable
of the Titans, in that these are left
as the marks of some long forgotten
battle of the gods. One can almost
believe this to be true. In common
with all hill "countries the "Devil" has
his share in it. Yonder is a project
ing rock, and notwithstanding we have
no record of His Satanic Majesty hav
ing ever taken the Holy Orders, yet
the captain of the vessel says "this is
the Devil's pulpit." And yonder wall,
a little more smooth than the rest he
tells us is "the Devil's slide." At yon
sharp turn In the river, where It is so
narrow that the boat can hardly get
through the pilot says "this is the
Devil's elbow." And yonder cave, the
entrance to which only we can see
the steward says is "the Devil's kitch
en." And in all this when I pointed
out to the captain one of the distiller
ies and asked him if that belonged to
the "Devil" too, he only smiled by way
of reply. Some place along the way
saw "the Devil's back-bone, and can
only say that if the rest of him is of
the same huge proportions he must
be of ponderous bulk.
Schedule is Slow.
f The trip up the river and back is
so arranged tat that portion of it
which Is covered by night on the up
trip is taken by day on the down-trip
so that one has the opportunity of
seeing It all the way. No one appears
to be In any hurry and the schedule
Is so slow that much time may be lost
at bum ac an usual iaterest. white
in
IHIAMD
those of lesser, interest may be passed
more rapidly. I remember that when
we were - coming bach and were pass
ing through "Lock No. 7." I believe,
the passengers disembarked and went
over to tbe hills for a romp. At each
lock the government has a house
built which is occupied by the "lock
tender," and as with all other govern
ntent property, so with this, every
thing is kept in nice condition. But
nature had done much for this one
spot. The stable whs hewn out of a
solid rock, the door to it being hung.
apparently against the face of the hill.
Within I theT -sta'.I were spacious, and
hat seemed f range to us. there was
no unusual moisture. Nearer tbe
house was a "spring house" which an
swered the purpose of the refrigera
tor for the family. Nearby strawber
ries were growing in abundance, and
the well sodded premises furnished a
delightful spot to hold an informal
lawn-party. W!ien the passengers
ere ready, they indicated to the cap
tain their desire to move on. . Such
was the abandon and freedom that
was manifest all along the way. If I
were asked to name the one spot
along the river that is the most pic
turesque, I should select the view
looking down the river, from near
Hickman. So nearly in front Is the
range of cliffs that the beholder can
not for the life of him tell in what
direction the river will turn, only as
he may have been over the trip be
fore and therefore knows. I am of
the opinion tliat the height of the
ranges is overestimated by most tour
ists. Having been reared in the hills
am that far competent to say that
all probability there is nothing
along the Kentucky river that rises to
a height in excess of six hundred feet.
Even the range of cliffs below Hick
man is certainly not to exceed three
hundred and fifty feet.
"Rousters" Leave Boat.
The entire distance traveled by the
steamer from Louisville to Valley
View is about 270 miles. In direct
line overland tbe distance would like-
be the full two hundred miles
shorter. At one point in the river the
'rousters" get off the boat and walk
across to the next landing, a distance
of less than two miles, while the1
steamer following the river reaches
the same spot in about sixteen miles.
That comes as nearly being a case of
"meeting yourself coming back" as
any that I know of.
It is difficult for us to imagine the
Interest that the people along the riv
er take in this steamer. On the "long
trip" she reaches the people of the
upper river only once a week. There
are large districts that have no other
outlet but this and the river is their
railroad. What is taken out of the
country goes by boat and all that they
receive comes in by the same way.
That boat is their boat. At one lock
we stopped awhile and a company of
the local young people came aboard.
one dropped down at the piano, the
rest cleared tables and chairs out of
the main floor of the cabin, tbe
couples paired off and for about fif
teen or twenty minutes they had an
old fashioned "shin-dig." That Is just
a sample of the way that they do
things. When , they were done they
went ashore, the steward arranged the
chairs and tables and we went on.
The whole trip including transpor
tation, state room, and meals cost less
than seven dollars. It was a complete
rest and for a time we were near to

Explanation:
The value of coal is Indicated by the number of heat units It con tains.
This heating value is expressed in terms of "British Thermal Units" per
pound of coal. If all coal contained the same proportion of moisture, or If
the moisture in coal delivered by a given dealer were constant In amount,'
the purchaser's problem, so far as this factor is concerned, would be sim
plified.
The moisture in the coal delivered is worthless to the "purchaser, aatf
really costs hitn a considerable amount, in the loss of the heat absorbed dur
ing its evaporation in the furnace.
OT several coals having a aimilar composition, tha on which haa the
least moisture and the least ash will generate the most steam or heat.
Coals containing small percentages of ash are moat valuable, not only

so correspondingly less and are Items to be considered In the choice of
coals. With the ordinary furnace equipment there may be a considerable
loss of efficiency and capacity through a large percentage of ash.
