RY Something that heretofore has been called impossible has Just been aceoDplished at the factory of the Frank H.

The apparatus has been in opera tion a little more than a week and it appears to have been demonstrated conclusively that it is possible to frea i the atmosphere of quicksilver and to provide an abundance of fresh, pure air at a constantly even temperature, at the same time avoiding air cur- MRS.

THE ATLAS TURKISH BATHS i 2-17 Fairfield Avenue lytfIES, DAY FRIDAY SOLVE THE MYSTERY Wonders can be performed says the National War Garden Commis sion of Washington, which will send you a jfirden book for a two-cent stamp for posts g. rents that interfere with the hand ling of the fur while it is being con verted into hat bodies. For years a means of banishing the quicksilver menace has been sought by hat manufacturers and the successful application of the "air washing" process to the forming mill of the Lee factory has apparanotly solved one of the most serious and perplexing problems in the hat in dustry. The danger to health, and even to life, that results from the jrosence of quicksilver in the close a.r of the forming mill has not only been recognized and made the sub ject of serious study and countless experiments by men in tlie hat in dustry, but has been the subject of a state investigation in (New Jersey ir. the hope that some way could be found to banish the evil and erad icate, so far as hat factories are concerned, tha cause of a most bane ful "occupational'' disease. Until now no solution of the problem has been found. Quicksilver is used in the carrot ing process through which the fur passes In the fur cutting shop, be fore it reaches the hat factory, and considerable of it remains in the fur. "The shakes," hatters call the dis tressing effects of inhaling quicksil ver. Men and women contracting the disease shake like persons with the palsy, their teeth become discol ored and decay, and they gradually become unfitted for work. Sometimes a loir-g rojt, away rom the poison ous atmosphere of the forming mill, will restore the health of the work er seriously affected, so that ha may return to his employment ag;:!n, but some are permanently incapacitated by the disease. From a humanitarian standpoint th discovery of a means of ridding tho air of the forming mill of its menace of quicksilver marks an important step forward, and that Danbury is able to point the way in this direction is a source of gratification. W. E. Heibel, chief engineer of the American Blower Co., of Detroit, who installed the apparatus and worked out with Mr. Lee the many perplexing problems that it was found necessary to overcome in ac commodating the "washing" system to the requirements of a hat factory, explained to a representative of The Times recently what had been accom plished and how. - The temperature in the forming room, where seven machines were in operation, stood at the time at seventy-ifive degrees and Mr. Heibe! said it had remained at that point all dav. The usual temperature in the rocm before the "washing" ap parau? was in operation stood from eighty to one kundred degrees. The air was clear and sweet and free of particles of fur and was even purer. Mr. Heibel said, f1 an the air out side. The apparatus for "washing'-' the air entering the factory is located in a specially constructed annex out side tho forming mill, and includes a specially installed engine to operate the mechanism by which the air ;s drawn from the building, purified, heated or cooled, and sent into the factory again. To heat fresh cold air constantly entering the building from the outside atmosphere would entail great expense, so warm air is drawn from the factory, cleansed and sent back again. It is necessary to maintain a certain degree of hu midity in a forming room to facili tate the manipulation of tho fur, so the aid is humified to the right de gree before it is sent in. It is so nec cessary to avoid drafts of air during the process of forming hats that or dinarily the entrance to a forming room is by way of an ante-room, the door of which is closed before that leading into the forming room is opened, and to maintain a constant and even circulation of air without causing troublesome drafts was one of the problems that required wee!"' of study and experimenting to worn out. In the "washing" apparatus the air passes through two thick banks of miet on its way Into the factory. The air intake, through which the air enters the apparatus, is the first step in the process. From the intake the air is filtered through a bank of heavy mist four feet in thickness, created by sprayers through which water is forced. This mist bank both "washes" and humidifies the air. Be yond this mist the air encounters what are termed "wet scrubber plates." which catch and hold par ticles of dust and other, impurities that succeed in passing through tha mist. Beyond these scrubber plates is another bank of mist, three fee thick. w::"re ths air receives its sec ond bath. Then comes another set of fscruber plates to pick up any thing that chances to have survived up to that point. "" The air next passes through the heating apparatus. In the banks of mist it has become one hundred per cent, humidified, but th heater, rais ing the temperature cf the air to that of the forming room, at the same time reduces the humidity to the right proportion. This accomplish ed, a huge fan -sends the air into the factory through ducts that run s'ong the side of the building. It is stated that tha results at tained thus tnr are entirely satisfac tory and there seems to be every rea son to believe that the problem of l:i '.ting quick - silver and the "shades" from the forming mill of a hat factory has at least been solved.

Battleford was an early fort and station of the fludsons Bay Company, at the junc tion of Battle Creek with the Sas katchewan river, and at the time of the second Iiel rebellion it was the enter of a larza Indian population. When Rtel raised the flag of lnsur- ectlon, late in March, 1S8B. a -large id hostile band of redskins gathered 'Out Battleford, Several settler .ear the village wero killed, and there ? was considerable plundering and de ! struction of property, but the cunning chief, Poundmaker. did not permit his braves to bring the issue to the point of open warfare. He wns a wise old Cre-, and he wanted to know "which way the cat was going to Jump" before definitely declaring himself. The paopls of Batfleford wait wildly alarmed by the presence of the menacing braves around the village, and sent out urgent appeals for aid. A little army of 540 men, ram paid principally of the "B" battery of Kingston, the Queen's own and Governor-General's Footguarda, un der command of Usut-OoL W.
