Williams commend thj entire ticket, and especially the nomi nee for County Judge, Mr. II. T. Derickson, who is a neighbor to Mr. Williams. The same loyal support seems to be accorded the ticket in all parts of the county. In Clay City every member of the party, so far as we have heard, is in line for victory this fall.

This road will cost, the county nothing for repairs which will partly recompense the county for its extreme hish cot of construc tion. Those persons who have talked against the Fstill county con nections on accouut the extra wear on the new road will now take notice that the State will stand the expense and is anxious to do so.

In a former article we explain ed that it was possible to reduce nearly every substance to gases. This is particularly true of some of the elements left in the shale deposit duriug the Devonan Age and the action or application of Heat is necessary to vaporize the Carbon and to release the Hydro gen and Nitrogen. The Potash elements is not easily volatilized, go it is obtained by a Leaching process a9 will be explained later. The retorts used for this heat application, consists if immense Fire Clay tubes through which the Shale is passed while the heat is applied to the outside of the tubes. The concrete foundation which you are familiar with on the property of The Devon Oil Shale Products Company forms the support for Fight of these retorts and the retorts themselves are built up of ten sections each of the immense tiles piled near the foundation. The Figbt Mjuure holes made by the embedding of the steel I beams in the concrete, contaiu eight heavy funnel shap ed castings and upon these cast ings the retorts are built up. These eight retorts are then en closed in a solid rectangular brick wall which rests on the couci eti and the white Silica Tile which is stacked near the retort sections extends from the bell of each section to the brick wall forming a Silica floor at each section top, through which all eight of the retorts extend to the top. Above this retorting section are the magazines and bunkers from which the Shale is fed continuously into the retorts proper, and the spent or treated shale is continually removed from the bottom of the retorts, by a set of spiral screws which aie mounted in the funnel shap ed castings already mentioned. The lower ends to these funnels dip into a water seal, which re tain the gases in the retorts and torces them out of the upper end to the condensers. The shale is first blasted loose from the dill' that is now opened up on the hill side near the river and being picked up in a steam shovel is dumped into caand hauled to the crushers where it is broken up into small piects about the size of black walnuts. Then it is carried in a conveyor to the top of the retorts where the bunkers, magazines and re torts are completely filled, (ias is then admitted through five openings f the rear end of the rectangular brick building which contains the retorts, and by reason for the Silica floors or bailie plates is forced clear across the whole unit and comes in contact with each retort equally. This gas is at first manufactured in a (ias Producer, but as soon as the retorts get hot enough they furnish more than enough gas from the fhale being treated, to give sufficient power for plant operation as well as for the re torting.
