THE SEjJALIA ' WEEKLY BAZOO, TUESDAY At GUST 2. 18fe7.
A ROMANCE IN THE ROUGH. LttVen, partners, to the story That I haven't told before ; One with more of gush than glory, And without a drop of gore. Partners, since I left camp quarters There's a change came over me, Tili I shadder one man's daughter, Quite as sailors do the sea. TUI I see in eyes that glisten, AH a tar sees in the wave When he sorts o' thinks it's his n. And the notion makes him brave. I'm in love I, gruff old feller! With a girl as good as gold ; Oce with cheeks as rich and meller As a peach too ripe to hold. See has hair the hue of nuggets That we've washed from mountain streans; And her waist I'd like to hug it, As I sometimes do in dreams ! Or each little hand a dimple Marks each knuckle as a smile Sometimes marks the sweet and simple Cheeks of girls not spoiled by style. And her vjoice it seldom utters Sounds you wouldn't like to hear "Way out thar where Gulch Creek sputters .'.nd where women don't appear. ' hush?" you say; "we thought you's married .nd you claimed you'd picked a pearl ."' K:ht. my pards: but that love carried "his love to my baby girl. Natton B. Htalk, in Cotmopolilan. STRANGE USES OF PAPER. How the Racing Shells of Leading Rowing Clubs Are Made. lnt'rtlng Description of the Methods I loved tn the Manufacture of Paper Car-Wheels, Building Paper and Other Artic'es. One of the most remarkable uses of pa er i the building of paper boats, uniler the patents recently expired, of E. Waters. These boats are made of an ordinary Manilla paper of good quality, usually in live thicknesses, in all only one-sixteenth of an inch thick, except in parts where there is a rein inforcement of one or two extra strips. The process of making them !s simple. A model of soft pine is made the full size of the boat, tht bow end being of two pieces which can be detached. The paper is delivered in long rolls; the model is turned upside down on a lorg frame; one narrow strip of paper and then a second ,are first laid on w; ere the keel would be, and then one. Two, three, four, five sheets are succes sively laid along and molded close to the model, each as it is put on being coated with shellac and with glue to at tach the next sheet closely to it. Thus done up in paper the models are taken to the drying-rooni, where a heat of about 150 degrees F., continued for five days, consolidates the glued paper ir.:o a solid mass. The movable pieces f wood at the bow are unscrewed and taken out, and with this place for a start, it is easy to peel the boat off the model, as a peach-skin comes off a fresh peach. A keel is now fastened inside the boat, several extra layers of shellac are put on outside and inside, a strip of wood is fastened in for a gunwale, and the shell is presently ready for its fittings, seats and outriggers. They are mostly racing shells, from single scull up to eight-oar, but one boat has been built as large as 42 feet long by 4 feet 4 inches beam, to hold forty-two persons, this, of course, be ing stayed by wooden ribs; and a steam-launch 19 feet long, worked by a one-horse-power oil engine, boat and engine together weighing but 430 pounds, was last fall successfully run at a speed of about ten miles per hour on the upper Hudson. The cost is some thing above that of wood. The single scull, 21 J feet long by 10$ inches beam, costs from $65 to $100; the eight-oared shell, about 60 feet long by 24 inches wide, costs $400. It is an interesting fact that the racing shells of Harvard, Yale and Columbia in 1886 were all from the same model from this shop, so the contest was entirely one of skill on even terms. Not only is traveling by water in debted to paper, but traveling by land. A paper car wheel seems even more a contradiction of terms than a paper boat, yet it is now generally acknowl edged to be better, safer and longer lived than one altogether of metal. It was the invention of Richard N. Allen, a locomotive engineer, afterward mas ter mechanic of the Cleveland & Toledo railroad, who took for his aim in life the production of a better car wheel than those in use. His first set of pa per wheels was made at Brandon, Vt., in 1869, and after much scoffing he was graciously permitted the use of a wood car on the Central Vermont road, un der which they were tested for six months. The Pullman Palace Car Com pany in 1871 gave the first order for a hundred , wheels; ten years after the Allen Paper Car-wheel Company, with great shops at Hudson, N. Y., and Pull man, 111., produced and sold thirteen thousand in a single year. One of the set first experimented with under a 'sleeper" is shown, at Hudson, with a record of 300,000 miles' travel. It is the body of the wheel only which is of paper. The material is a calen dered rye-straw "board"' or thick paper made at the Allen Company's mills at Morris, 111. This is sent to the works in circular sheets of twenty-two to forty inches in diameter. Two men, standing by a pile of these, rapidly brush over each sheet an even coating of flour paste until a dozen are pasted into a layer. A third man transfers tnese layers to a hydraulic press, where a pressure of five hundred tons or more is applied to a pile of them, the layers being kept distinct by the ab sence of paste between the outer sheets. After solidifying under this pressure for two hours the twelve-sheet layers are kept for a week in a drying-room heated to 120 degrees F.; several of these layers are in turn pasted together, pressed and dried for a second week, and still again these disks are pasted, pressed and given a third drying of a whole month. The result is a circular block, containing from 190 to 160 sheets of the original paper, com pressed to 5 or 4 Inches thickness, and of a solidity, density and weight suggesting metal rather than fiber. The "paper wheel' 1 is made up of this disk of compressed paper, snrrounded by a steel tire, and fitted with a cast iron hub, which is bored for the axle; wrought-iron plates protect the paper disk on either side, and all are bolted together bv two circles of bolts, one O e set passing through a flange of the tire and the other through a flange of the hub, and both through the paper center and it protecting plates. The real sen'ice of the paper is in in terposing a non-vibrating substance be tween the axle and the tire, so that the vibrations, which in some unknown way rearrange the atoms of metal so that it brittles and breaks after long wear, are prevented. Nature always provides some way of wearing things out, whether it be man, lest he lag su perflous on the stage, or "the everlast ing hills" themselves, but in the case of compressed paper, art seems to have got ahead of nature.for it seems not lo wear out at all. The steel tires of these wheels do wear down, and are then re turned in a lathe to smaller diameter; but when they are gone and are taken off, the paper block appears again as good as new, and ready for a new tire. The paper wheel has the one dis advantage of greater cost, but its longer life and greater safety are in its favor. "Straw lumber." so called, is a simi lar application of paper for building purposes; it is used, not for posts or beams, but in place of lath and plas ter, for sheathing, etc. An ordinary "straw-board" paper is made on the cylinder machine the refuse bedding of stables being very largely utilized as the material and is run through a vat of resin and other water-proofing material heated to 350 F. A number of sheets are then placed together be tween metal plates, and subjected like the car wheels to enormous pressure in a hydraulic pres. The result is a very hard and solid blackish board, about chree-sixteenths of an inch thick, which can be cut with a saw or chisel, and is marketed in slabs 12 feet bv 32 inches, at a price of about $40 per thousand feet- This is now in use also for the interior of railwav cars and for perforated chair seats. "Building pa per" of the ordinary sort is a coarse paper of straw or waste used for sheathing or lining wooden houses. It was put to good use immediately after the Chicago fire, when a Western paper company lined the 10,000 houses, 16 by 20, which were run up to accommodate the homeless, with this material, at a cost of $5 for each house. The non-conducting quality of paper has caused a curious development in America of the paper-box industry, so that the lover of oysters mav "take home a fry in a box" to keep it hot, or a brick of ice-cream to keep it cool. The Chinese and Japanese are said to make paper clothes, and their hand kerchiefs and napkins are well known to us, but American achievements in this direction have been confined chiefly to paper collars, cuffs and bosoms," sometimes with a backing of cloth, which is conjoined with paper at some mills by reeling the cloth off parallel with the web of paper and pressing the two permanently together between rollers. The use of paper bags and boxes by shopkeepers has reached enor mous proportions, and the latest prod uct of American ingenuity is a "self opening bag," completed automatically from the web of Manilla paper by a machine on which its owners had been at work for eight years. This is folded flat as it comes from the machine, but a single dexterous flap with the hand opens it into an absolutely square cornered bag which will stand upright on the grocer's counter to be filled. Paper buckets, barrels and other house hold utensils are either made by join ing the edges of a flat sheet into a cylinder or by stamping out the form from paper pulp, whioh last was the basis of the papier-mache of old days, which was molded safe into the desired shape, coated with, successive layers of asphalt varnish and polished down. Paper pulp is also used in one process of stereotyping to make a matrix for the type-metal. R. R. Bowker, in Harper's Magazine. A RUN-AWAY TRAIN. OF GENERAL INTEREST. An Eye to Business. "There's a couple of nice cucumbers, doctor," said the green grocer, "all I've got left I was going te send "em over to the Smiths, but if you want 'em you can have 'em." No," replied the doctor hastily, "let the Smiths have them. They are patients of mine." Ar. Y. Sun. Weekly Bazoo, $1 per year, t ry ii. Hw a Terrible Catastrophe Wae Averted by a Boy's Presence of Mind, There is a story in Wide Awake of a boy, the fifteen-year-old son of a loco motive engineer, who had often ridden with his father and "knew the engine pooty well." Indeed the engineer had frequently let the boy "drive" on a long stretch of straight track. One night he left Dave in charge of the en gine on a siding while he went to sup per as usual. There came up a furious wind; and, after a little some cars shot by without any engine. The wind had started them. Boy, think quick! Down grade! The Lightning Express is to come that wav! Nobody near. No telegraph wire. The trains are headed together. There is less than an hour to catch those run- away cars and pull them out of the . m S - . . 1 T way. iNo time lor nesitationi ne springs to the lever, picks up speed and tears away with grade and wind and steam like a whizzing arrow. They are miles ahead. The rushing minutes are full of sudden comprehen sion. He almost sees through the dark, tempestuous night What set him fly ing toward this plunge was thought of the Lightning Express. Now danger takes hold of him. What if he is just too late! The runaway train is in sight! e7 O Off steam! No, on again! Let the story-teller tell the rest. He must slow up, but do it so nicely that when he does come up with them there shall be the least possible shock; for here is the hardest part of the busi ness. He has nobody to help him "couple." He must be, for the once, both engineer and switchman. He had not thought what a formidable job this was until it stared him in the face. On he flew, revolving the situation in his head and adjusting his engine with the nicest care until he was upon the very heels of the runaway; then, with many misgivings, slipped out of the engine-house and crawled along the side of the locomotive and down on the "cow-catcher." Hero, seizing the long coupler in one hand and holding on with the other, he stood watching with breathless in terest the approaching collision. The suspense was agonizing. The situation was perilous. A gust of wind might sweep him from his place; he might be -h;iken off or crushed. He was almost panic-stricken. A dozen times he was at the point of turn ing back. To his startled ears the air was full of uncanny sounds the sweep of another tornado, the rush of the "Lightning" just ahead. But he had in him the stuff which heroes are made of. The hero, remember, is not he who is insensible to danger, but rather he who feiN and realizes, but yet over comes it. The "Meteor" drew nearer and near er the flying train. Dave had used ex cellent judgment in regulating its speed; for at length it came up with the rear car with scarcely a shock, so that Dave could reach over and drop in the pin. Then clambering back into the engine house he seized the "throttle." To his amazement the train did not stop. In stead of the "Meteor's" stopping the runaway, the runaway dragged the "Meteor" along in its headlong flight. Dave was horror-struck. He had i bought the train would stop at once. He had not calculated what a tremendous im petus all those heavj cars had acquired. Now, then, the tussle! The train be gan to slow up. It came to a standstill. Then the backward pull. Slowly they got underway; but the wind and up grade were against them. Dave began to get anxious. "The Lightning" must be due by this time. He kept a sharp lookout behind and whistled like mad around the curves. At length he entered upon the long, straight, level line of road which ex tended clear to Blankton. Dave breathed freer. It was the home stretch a good ten-mile run. Hardly had he congraulated himself, when far behind but unmistakably he heard the scream of "Lightning's" whistle. He was going already at his topmost speed. He was making not more than thirty-five miles an hour, while the "Lightning" was coming on at the rate of sixty. With horror he heard it gaining on him; the next whistle was nearer, and at length when he had made only two-thirds the dis tance the gleam of its headlight came shooting round a wooded curve in his rear. Out of the very despair of the mo ment Dave gathered calmness. He turned his back on the pursuing train, he cast no look behind, he shut his ears to its on-coming roar: looked straight ahead, kept his eyes on the track, his mind on his duty. He is almost there he is there, he dashes past the station-house, across the switch and down at last upon the side track. It is all right Jake and Jim are there. They have thrown the switch back in time; and the "Lightning" goes whizzing and shrieking past When Jake jumped aboard the "Meteor" his son fainted dead away in his arms. m s The first time old Fogiboy saw a telegraph line he remarked: "Crackyi but it takes a heap o' wire to keep them poles steady, and it must be plaguey expensive, too!"
