HE earth Is uaod as part of the electrical circuit for the weak current of telegraph lines, and doubtless would be so used with telephones were It not for the disturbing effects of wandering T earth currents, in trolley lines, where the current la a powerful one, the rails are used as a return circuit, and owing to In sufficient connections part of the current often goes astray and does damage by causing the corrosion of water plot's, etc. This fact lends Interest to a recent pro posal to do sway with the return circuit altogether on high-power transmission lines. Although It Is proposed to make the con nections to earth at some points remote from habitations. It Is thought probable by aomj critics that damage would result from such a plan, says R. Biquard In the Revue Sclentlf'.que, as quoted by the Literary Digest: 'The advantage of an earth return Is particularly marked in the case of long high-tension lines. Various questions arise regarding the practicability ot this method. First, the rapid corrosion ot the earth con nections, due to electrolysis of the soil, will necessitate their being so arranged as to make replacement possible without Inter ruption of the current. Also, corrosion of conduits and metallic objects, burled near by, Is to be feared. It wfll there fore be necessary to establish the points for earth connections at a sufficient dis tance from any threatened point depending on the Intensity of the current The great est .difficulty will be with telegraph lines. It Is evident that if the transmission of energy produces a continually varying dif ference of potential between the two ex treme earth connections of such a line. It T;1U be disturbed by the wandering cur rents. And supposing this difficulty solved, we must also take account of the in.luctlve affect on telegraph wires, ef the presence, near by, of a single conductor transmit ting high potential currents. A single wire. In fact, la dissymmetric; Its Inductive In ' Ouence Is not balance.! as la the case of two parallel wires carrying opposite cur rents. Lancey's tests show that for a powerful continuous current we must have a distance ot 6,000 meters (three miles) to avoid with certainty perturbations on a parallel telegraph line of great length. In fact, the study of the question Is far from complete; and practical tests are r.ecissary. The use of the earth as a return circuit, however, when the problem has been solved, will make possible a very great increase In the field of action of natural water powers, as the use of high tension transmission has already done." Electric Farm House. Fifty miles east ot Sacramento, Cal., says the Klectrla News, Ellis Frauklln owns a small form. A little trout stream, rioting among the foothills and across the farm In a series of falls and rapids, en route to its destination In the Bear river, has been detained a little while at this farm, where It cheerfully dons the In visible mantle of electricity and does most of the mechanical work about the prem ises, heats and lights the building and does the cooking, washing and Ironing and nu merous other small chores. This diminutive trout stream In times of high water is a small torrent, but dur ing the dry season It shrinks to a few cubic Inches a minut, so It was necessary to utilize an old miner's ditch for a res ervoir to store up a supply of water against the dry months. A part of this old ditch, dug by early placer miners, was re paired to hold 100,000 cublo feet of water. A six-Inch riveted steel pipe, 446 feet in h ngth. carries the water to the foot of the tall, where the power house is located. The little two-foot water wheel In the power house works under a seventy-five-foot head and Is belted to a 240-volt, six-horsepower General Electric generator. ' The water enters the water wheel through a one and one-halt-inch coixle and develops more than six horsepower. The heavy pulley wheel takes the place of a balanoa wheel and a small governor prevents any accldenta Current from the power house Is carried to the bouse, a quarter of a mile away. over a small copper wire strung on twenty-foot poles. The reside ice and a small log cabin, known as Mr. Franklin's den, are lighted With a total of about fifty six teen candlepower lamps. Another lighting circuit runs to the barns and outbuildings. In the basement at the house a three horsepower motor operates a centlfrugal pump and with line shafting drives a wash ing machine, wringer, churn, cream sep arator, grindstone and a circular saw. It Is not necessary to journey to the power house to start or stop the machinery. Near the switchboard in the house Is a small crank attached to a shaft running through the wall to the outside. By a syb tem of pulleys this crank operates two long galvanised Iron wires, running Just beneath the transmission wire, which open or close the water wheel gates as desired. An elec tric busier on the switchboard' tells when the gate valve Is tightly closed. The residence Is beautifully lighted. Lamps aggregating fully 900-candle power make the rooms as cheerful and pretty as any city home. Elegant fixtures, harmon izing with the Interior, make one almost forget that he Is living on a farm. Outside the broad verandas, with their pendant electric bulbs and lanterns, add to the charm of this country home. The farm laborers also share In the luxury of elec tric lighting. In their little cottage, which Is apart from the residence, electric lamps are provided for the bed rooms and for the library, where the men pass their evenings. But lighting Is only one use to which the power Is put. Down In the basement the three-horse power motor runs a horizontal centrifugal pump, which lifts water from an almost Inexhaustible well to a reservoir dug in the hillside and connected to the pump by a two-Inch pipe SO feet long. The reservoir has a capacity of about (.000 gal lons and Is placed forty feet above the level of the pump, furnishing kitchen, bath room and laundry with water at a good pressure. In the front yard there is hose connection with a hydrant, which furnishes water for the lawn and also adds security to the home In case of fire. Steel Heflwed ar Electricity. While our groat coal and coke centers will undoubtedly long continue to roduoe the larger part of the world's pig Iron and to refine It Into steel. It was clearly shown at the meeting of the American Electro-Chemical society, says the Iron Trade Hevlew, that certain favored lo calities will soon be producing material1 quantities of Iron; that the use of elec tricity for melting tho finer grades of tool ar.d alloy steels is now the best and cheapest way; and that the electric fur nace will soon be generally used for spe cially refining many grades of steel after they leave the present open-hearth or Bessemer processus. There Is no doubt that ample funds will be provided In the near future to carry out one of the sug gestions made at the meeting, namely, to secure much greater economy by the In stallation of very large furnaces with larger electric currents and correspondingly smaller losses. As Iron ore and fuel In crease In value, the tendency to use better and better grades of steel will Increase, slnoe tho life of these Is. greater and the cost of the special refining necessary to produce them Is decreasing. Wherever steel must stand specially severe service the best steel obtainable is usually the cheapest, since the cost of labor and es pecially of tlmo Incidental to frequent re newals Is eliminated. Thus many parts of railway lines demand the best possible wearing steel, and where maximum strength In cables and other steel Is neces sary the extra cost of the greatest possible refining of the steel to be used Is often the cheapest plan. Then, too, the use of fine sttels for special purposes Is Increas ing rapidly of late, especially for automo biles and fine machines of many kinds. Elertrle Light Discovery. The latest achievement of the aged In ventor, Daniel Drawbaugh of Eberly's Mills, Pa., one of the original Inventors of the telephone, la to do away with the car bon used In arc lights and telephone trans mitters and the Tungsten filaments, used In Incandescent electric light bulbs. Mr. Drawbaugh has been working and experi menting with a new composition since he first began his work on the telephone, thirty or more years ago. He says ha does not as yet have a name for the composi tion, but that he has so far perfected It that it will not crumble and wear like car bon or break Ilka the filaments now used In Incandescent globes. The composition Is hard and cannot be melted by a heat of 4,000 degrees. A. B. Bed man of Harrtsburg, Pa., Is working and experimenting with Mr. Drawbaufh.

Farr, then a young man, came to Nebraska with his young wife, selsoted a home and settled In the southern part of what was then Keith county, and which later became Perkins county. In the western part of the state, though at that tlmo a good deal of good land was open to homestead In almost every part of the mate. They had a little money then, but hard years came and It was soon spent. Nothing daunted, they remained where they jere, and in a few years began to make money and to buy land around them, until at length their holdings e:ubraced 3,600 acres of level or gently rolling land. This they fenced and Improved, and named their home the "F" ranch, extending -their fences to enclose about twelve square miles of land. Settlers came and settled around them, the Burlington built Its road through the ranch, ana tne mile town of Venango grew up two and one-half miles from its western bounrtry. while the station of Brandon la now less than one-half mile east. The ranch Is now well improved as well as nicely located, and Is stocked with a fine hord of Clydesdale draft horses, worth up to 1800 each, and with a large herd of cattle. Those young people who stayed have accumulated a snug little fortune, estimated at about J75.O00, all of which the ranch produced. Jn recent years help has been hard to get, settlers have encroached on the free range, and the little "worries" grew to be many. This led thern to the conclusion a short time ago that they have earned a rest, which they can afford to take. Having made up their minds to quit, they wish to do so at once, and so placed their ranch on the market at a very low figure in order to sell it quickly. It sold a fow days sgo to The Kearney Land Company of Kearney, Neb., and will be cut up and resold In small tracts to farmers. The cowboy, and the rancher Is passing on.
