LINEAGE DATING TO
REVOLUTIONARY WAR
SAVES HORSE’S LIFE
MANHATTAN, Kan., Jan. 28 —
Riley county, Kansas, is boasting of
a horse that is eligible to membership
in the Sons of the American Revolu
tion.
The animal's proud lineage recently
saved its life in the veterinary hos
pital of the Kansas State Agricultural
College here. The horse was brought
to the hospital with an incurable foot
disease and veterinarians recommend
ed killing it. The farmer, however,
objected strenuously to parting with
the animal. He said that his own
great grandfather, a major in the war
of the revolution, had ridden an an
cestor of the horse and that his line
had remained in the family ever since
that time.
The horse has gone into honorable
retirement in the hospital here.
NEW SAINTS FOR ST. PAUL’S
LONDON, Jan. 28.—The statues of
the apostles adorning the sides of St.
Paul’s cathedral, have been unable to
withstand the rigors of 200 years of
London weather. Today they are with
out features and are fast crumbling
away.
Copies are being made of material
better calculated to withstand decay
and will shortly be set up.

TURBINE ENGINE
GIVES PROMISE OF
SPLENDID SERVICE
STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Jan. 28.
The neck and neck race between
steam and electricity as a motive pow
er for railway trains has grown con
siderably as the result of the recent
extensive tests in Sweden. These
show that the Swedish turbine loco
motive consumes 45 to 50 per cent
less coal than a modern locomotive
with reciprocating engines, while re
quiring but one-twentieth as much wa
ter; can make a run of 600 miles with
out stop, and can maintain the same
regular schedule which at present re
quires three locomotives of the ordi
nary type.
Runs totaling more than 10,000
miles in regular passenger and freight
service have been made between Go
thenburg and Stockholm. No stops to
take on water have been necessary,
and the consumption of coal has been
only about half as much as the ordi
nary engine. The turbine locomotive,
which is the invention of the Swedish
engineer, F. Jungstrom, is a radical
departure from the reciprocating en
gine. Instead of the familiar piston
and cylinder mechanism, together with
the crank drive wheels with their big
counterweights, turbine wheels are
used which are rotated by a current
of steam playing over the blades, the
turbine shafts being connected by
gears to the shafts of the drive
wheels.
Among the advantages of the tur
jbine as summarized by the inventor
are the saving in fuel and water
smaller engine crews, higher efficien
cy of the boiler owing to pre heating
of the combustion air, reduction of all
fire risks because sparks are extin
guished in the pre-heater, more effi
cient starting power, smoother run
ning and less wear on rails and
couplings, smaller space required in
the roundhouses, and more comfort
for the passengers due to the absence
of steam clouds.
BOARD TO CONTROL
! PORT OF HAVRE;
HAVRE, Jan. 28.—The French gov
ernment has granted autonomy to the
port of Havre. The action provides
that all improvements and other dis
positions respecting the port need no
longer have the approval of the min
istry of public works. The control of
harbor construction and similar oper
ations will henceforth be under the di
rect control of the (Chamber of Com
merce of Havre and a board appointed
by the government.

Prisoners Gain Weight
on Eight Cent Meals
GALESBURG, Jan. 28—Although
meals served in the Knox county jail
the past year cost an average of but
eight cents each, every prisoner in the
jail for a month or more, showed a
gain in weight in the period of con
finement it was stated in the annual
report of Sheriff Wilson today.
The eight cents includes, besides
meals, the salary of the turnkey, and
cost of soap used by prisoners to keep
their cells and their clothes clean. A
total of 15,500 meals were served in
the year.
