Process of Machine and Facts of Interest. The Climai gas machine owned and operated by the Citizens’ Gas and Fuel Company of this city, is a won derful invention, and for the past ten days has produced the most beauti ful and steady light ever seen in this city, and it is constantly growing in favor with the community. In the stores where the light is in use, the quality and fabric of goods are brought out as never seen before un der any artificial light. The process of making this gas is very interesting and the ladies and gentlemen of the city are invited to call at the power house in the rear of Mr. Redman’s drug store and inspect the workings of the plant any evening between the hours of 7 and 9 o’clock, when Mr. C. J, Johnson, of St. Louis, and Mr. E. O. Carrington, the gen eral agent for the United States, will be pleased to explain the full process of making gas. This plant is the first and only plant of its kind run by au tomatic steam power. Water power is used elsewhere by this company but not steam. This steam apparatus is a unique fascinat ing little affair and looks as though it might have been made by the “cliff dwellers” of Colorado, but it was not. It works automatically, shutting off and turning on its own fire when in full blast,—in a word caring for its own safety and utility. The gas machine is a marvel of ingenuity and by the scientific com bination of air and gasoline in the car bureter, a hydro-carbon gas is made of 2 1-2 times the candle-power per cubic foot of coal gas. This machine manufactures the gas only as it is consumed by the burner, no storage of gas being required, and when all lights are turned off, the machine stops automatically, but will start its self when one light is turned on and will work on day and night and give 15,000 candle power of light at any time it is wanted. It produces the best quality of illu minating and fuel gas ever made. The gas gives more than double the brilliancy of light than gas made the old way from coal, and for cooking it surpasses all other kinds of fuel. No ashes, dirt or odor, but furnishes cooked food with all the natural flavor x’etained in it, making a “dish fit for a king” and 1-2 gallon of coffee can be made in 5 minutes, thus losing none of the “aroma”. One gallon of water call uu uruugiii tu uic uumug puuu m 7 minutes on any ordinary gas stove burner. This gas produces with one mantle a light of 386 candle power. The power aud brilliancy of this light was tested one night last week in this city by a gentleman from Little Rock, reading a newspaper article out loud at a distance of 163 feet from the light. We wish the Citizens Gas and Fuel Co. all success in their enter prise. WAR ON BUCKET SHOPS. New York, May 21.—Owing to the success of the Chicago Board of Trade in its efforts to eliminate bucket-shops in the West, similar movements have gained greatly. On Monday next members of the New York Cotton Exchange will act upon a proposed amendment provid ing that any member of the exchange who shall be interested or associated with, or shall act as the representative of, or shall knowingly execute any order or orders for the account of a bucket shop, shall be expelled. REVIVAL AT THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH. A good audience heard Mr. Cline again last night on the important sub ject, “Will it pay to be a Christian?” He will speak tonight on “The two faces of God.” Those who have kept up with his series of discourses, feel that it is a liberal education in itself of Bible study. Jle has done a fine work for the church in Newport. Services will continue till Sunday night. REMOVAL OF DIVISION. Walnut Ridge, Ark., May 21.—Gen eral Superintendent Cotter with Di vision Superintendent Hartigan of the St. Louis, Iron Mountain & Southern Railway, were here last week looking over the land lying between this place and Hoxie, with the intention of lo cating the Missouri division, which is to be removed from Poplar Bluff, Mo. Finding the location suitable, and that the citizens, both" here and at Hoxie, would donate same to the company, they immediately sent surveyors to lay < ff the land that they might as certain amount wanted and name of owners. Deeds will probably be se cured this week. Orders have been given to sell and remove the large hotel now on their right-of-way, as they will probably erect a modern passenger depot on this location. The passing of this hostelry is the de struction of one of the landmarks. It was built in 1872 by Mrs. Boas, and many noted people have been enter tained there, among them Samuel J. Tilden, General Grant, W. T. Sher man, Sam J. Randall. Having been the railroad eating house its fame has gone abroad into all lands. ARKANSAS POSTMASTERS’ SALARIES INCREASED.
