4 H. H. Maguire Invents Hot Blast
Door for Use on Locomotives.
Door Will be Given a Thorough Test by
the Short Line-Make Big Saving
in Fuel.
About two months ago Engineer
11- H. Maguire of this city, filed
with the patent office at Washington
an application for a patent on a hot
blast furnace door and frame. The
application was accompanied with a
model. A few days ago Mr. Ma
guire received a letter from the pat
ent office stating that there waa
nothing along the principle of his
model on file m the office and that
his application would be considered
in due time. This ia practically an
assurance that a patent will be
The door can be used on all loco
motives and stationary boilers and
Mr. Maguire is confident its use
will result in a saving of from 30 to
25 per cent of fuel. It has been
proveu that the hot blast draft in
heating stoves, where soft coal is
used, saves fuel by converting the
gas arising from the coal into heat.
£ome months ago Mr. Maguire came
to the conclusion that if the hot
blast draft would save fuel in heat
ing stoves it would certainly save
fuel on locomotives and other boil
lie accordingly set to work
devising a furnace door that would
operate on that principle. He was
not long in perfecting the model,
which he immediately forwarded to
the patent office.
Mr. Maguire exhibited his model
and explained its principle to Mr.
Dunn, superintendent of
for the Short Line, and that
