SPRAY METHOD USED
TO PURIFY SEWAGE
(By Associated Press)
LAFAYETTE, Ind.. Oct. 12. One of
the most important problems confront
ing Indiana cities is the purification
of its sewage prior to disposal Sev
eral methods are available for accom
plishing this purpose, one of which in
frequent use, sprays the liquid sewage
through nozzles over beds of stone.
Experiments were conducted in the
hydraulic laboratory of Purdue uni
versity in 1917 to determine the rela
tion between actual and theoretical
quantities of water passing through
eight different nozzles. During the
past summer extensive apparatus was
designed by Prof. R. B. Wiley, acting
head of the school of civil engineer
ing, and built in the laboratory for
study. Thirteen nozzles have been se
The plant consists of a pump for
supplying the flor and suitable piping
to a nozzle set at the center of a
curvature of a quadrant of a circle
of 12 feet radius and two troughs to
catch the discharge passing outside,
the range of the quadrant. This quad
rant is in turn divided into 26 com
partments, the flor from each com
partment being measured separately.
The pressure or head is ascertained
on glass gauges. The air and water
temperatures and the humidity also
are recorded. For different pressure,
within a range of from one to nine
feet, measurements are being taken
of the height, width, radial range and
amount of the spray. The nozzles are
rotated and raised to various eleva
tions to determine the effort of these
changes upon the measurements.

SHORTAGE IS LIMITING
(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, Oct. 12 Shortage of
railroad transportation is so great and
serious that it is not only limiting, but
will for a long time continue to limit
production and commerce of all kinds,
Samuel D. Dunn, editor of the Railway
Age, asserted at the annual conven
tion of Associated Business Papers
Almost every other condition is fav
orable to an increase of production
and commerce, and a revival of pros
perity, he declared.
The present 'transportation situa
tion was aggravated, but not created,
by the coal and railway shopmen's
strikes, Mr. Dunn said. The condition
is due mainly, he added, to a' great in
dustrial revival and commercial activ
ity and to a long decline in the ex
pansion of railroads.
"Production and commerce are try
ing to increase as much as they did
after the panics of 1893 and 1907. and
after the depression of 1914 and 1915,"
he said. "But the capacity of the rail
roads has not increased within recent
years as it formerly did. This is the
principal reason why at the very begin
ning of this period of business revival,
the country is confronted with a short
age of transportation that is prevent
ing the speeding up of production in
the mines, the mills and factories.

The Farm and the Farmer
By William R. Sanborn
AND THEN IT RAINED ,
Farmers who attended a farm sale
on Tuesday can tell you all about the
brand of weather we enjoyed. It was
just the occasion for hip rubber boots
and longtailed slickers, as you waded
around in the barn lots, or selected im
plements out in the pouring rain. One
of the men who picked out Oct. 10 as
the best day of the esason on which
to hold a sale, was out betimes, which
means mighty early, that fateful
Cold rain couldn't dampen his ardor
and he decided that the sale should
be held, rain or no rain, and so it
proceeded to a finish. This particular
sale was held at Reidston by Arthur
Curme, and in spite of the weather a
good crowd turned out and made a
cleanup. One farmer, however, thought
the rain a bit belated and told Arthur
that "it was a wonder he hadn't held
his sale three weeks earlier, "when
we needed rain so badly."
Among the 126 head of hogs oa offer
were 25 pure-bred Poland China spring
gilts which were in competitive de
mand and brought more money than
have some of the same age at recent
breed sales. In fact, all the hogs sold
well; this also being true of the cattle
three of which were Red Polled cows.
A small bunch of sheep sold for $7
per head, and a promising cold was so
greatly admired by Nate Colvin that
he bid it up to $108.
looked at from all angles the sale
may be considerel satisfactory, as Mr.
Curme stated. The net was between
$2,600 and $2,700. Weddle and Hind-
man were the auctioneers and Frank
Taylor, of the First National bank,
made the settlements. The Ladies'
Aid of th Phristian church at Center-
ville, served a satisfying rainy-day
lunch to a larger crowd than they had
expected as they watched the down
pour. The Curme sale was not a clean
up, simply a "Reduction" sale to dis
pose of some surplus stock and imple
Various Farm Sales.
The Creek Bros, offering of Big Type
Polands consisted of. 50 head of spring
pigs, 33 of which were gilts. The top
of the sale was paid for a fine boar,
which the buyer, Gilbert Orbaugh
paid $49. Five of the choice gilts
were purchased by Adam Eby at a
cost of $36 each. Peoria, 111., wa3 rep
resented at the sale and a few of the
best on show have now been shipped
to farmers in that vicinity.
Cunningham and Stevens, living
west of Lynn, held their first Duroc
sale, on Tuesday. No exceptional
prices were paid but a pretty nice
bunch of hogs were distributed among
the farmers of the neighborhood, li
M. Perry paid $48 for a choice fall
yearling sow, which topped the sale,
Mr. Perry hails from Falmouth.
Bentonville is putting on a big com
bination sale. A lot of good hogs of
various breeds, a number of horses,
quite a bunch of cattle and all sorts
of things seen at a community sale
will go under the hammer. The sale
is set for Saturday, Oct. 14.
Have Coal at Eldorado
E. V. McClure, of Eldorado, says
that they have all the coal they need
with three cars of Kentucky coal and
one car of anthracite chestnut about
due to arrive. Mr. McClure reports
getting three cars of anthracite last
summer, including April shipments,
which were divided around. He ex
pects to sell the anthracite now to ar
rive at around $15. He explains that
while they have no great surplus they
are dividing it so that people depend
ing on him for coal will be sure to be
kept from freezing. His price on est
day. He said that they had boosted
their price on wheat to $1.07 on this
advance, and that a few farmers still
have wheat in their bins.
The elevator at Lynn reported both
hard and soft coal in their bins, on
Thursday; not a large supply, but
some of two or three grades, with
more supposedly in transit.
Five Cars Due at Crete
H- L. Welsh, manager of the ele
vator at Crete, says the demand for
coal is becoming urgent. He has or
dered five cars of Indiana and Ken
tucky coal, all of which should have
arrived days ago, in fact, two cars of
Indiana coal, for which he has tha
bills, were expected in before Oct. 1.
He al?o has bills for the Kentucky coal
and has hopes of being able to quiet
the. clamor for coal light soon. They
have been paying $1.02 for wheat for
a week or more and he reports a little
grain still on some of the neighboring
W. B. Woodward, of Dublin, eaid:
"After a five months shutdown of the
mines, I can't see how we can look for
cheap coal this fall, as the demand
must be large right along for some
time. We have a little coal here but
the demand isn't heavy, nor has If
been, so far. We have not done any
requisition business, which is a whole
lot of trouble, as we have been able
to get rlong without appeals to the
coal board. We now have both Ken
tucky and West Virginia coal in stock,
not a great lot of it but a little for
those who need it. We are pricing
both kinds at $10.50 just now."
New Paris is in shape to keep com
fortably warm, according to George
Richards. He has managed to get a
car or so of coal from time to time
and has a car of Yellow Jacket Ken
tucky coal in at this writing, which
