The farmers’ institute held at this

everybody seemed pleased and also
profited with what they heard. It is
encouraging and helpful to any com-

When cold weather comes along a
great many women suffer from chap-
ped lips and burning skin, caused by
the sharp winds accompanying winter
weather. To prevent this a coating of
cold cream should be put on the face
before going out of doors and this in
turn should be covered with a delicate
powder. At night a good camphor ice
should be rubbed into the lips thor-
oughly, and if the face is very sore
from exposure to wind it would be
well to apply a bit of the camphor to
the face also. This should be allowed
to remain on the face over night, and
the grease that is left on in the morn-
ing should be washed away with
warm, not too hot, water and a pure
soap. Remember before going out of
doors to apply a slight coating of cold
cream, rubbing into the skin well.
This will protect the complexion and
keep it soft and smooth.
Chapped hands, which sometimes
are very painful, may be treated in
the same way, camphor ice being rub-
bed into them at night, powder
sprinkled over the hands and then a
large and loose pair of old white
gloves pulled on over the hands. In
the morning the gloves should be re-
moved and the hands washed in warm
water and a pure soap. Several nights
of this treatment will make the hands
smooth and white.

ALCOHOL MAY BE FUEL OF THE
The fuel of the future seems likely
to be alcohol. And the very near fu-
ture at that.
As Prof. Alexander Graham Bell
said the other day, “No sooner has
King Alcohol gone out the back door
as a beverage than he enters the front
door in triumph as a fuel.”
Important beginnings in this direc-
tion have already been made. Exper-
imental alcohol engines have been
built, and have proved highly satis-
factory. Automobiles can be run by
alcohol perfectly well, with slight
modification of their machinery.
The technologic branch of the Unit-
ed States Geologic Survey has recent-
ly tested a slightly modified gasoline
engine, with alcohol as fuel, and has
obtained some highly interesting re-
sults. The alcohol proved to possess
a fuel efficiency equal to that of gas-
oline—rather a paradox, one might
say, inasmuch as it has only half the
heating value. But this is explained
by the fact that its combustion is far
more complete, so that it yields as
much power as does gasoline.
In the government tests the fluid
fuel (whether alcohol or gasoline)
was supplied from a glass tank placed
on a weighing scales. An index on a
dial showed the quantity consumed, |
and another automatic contrivance,
measured the amount of power deliv- |
Alcohol is an ideal fuel. Its com- |
bustion is perfect, and it is therefore |
smokeless. In burning, it resolves |
itself into water and carbonic acid,
exactly as it does when chemically |
consumed in the human body.
Before long all our warships will
be driven by alcohol, which will take
the place of fuel oil, just as the latter
has replaced coal. Already experi-
mental alcohol engines have been con-
structed for naval vessels.
It is equally certain that all mer-
chant steamships will be propelled by
alcohol. The convenience thus to be
gained is obvious, as well as the
economy. For naval and commercial
use, fuel stations are scattered all
over the world. Their supplies of
coal or oil are fetched usually from
great distances, and at such expense
that the prices charged are extreme-
How different it will be when alco-
hol takes the place of oil and coal. It
can be made on the spot, from raw
materials right at hand, or can at
least be manufactured somewhere not
very far away.” At every port it will
be stored in huge tanks, and an arriv-
ing ship, wanting fuel, will need only
a pipe connection to fill up.
Alcohol will go steadily down in
price as methods of making it are im-
proved. Already it is sold in Cuba at
eight cents a gallon. In tropical
countries it can be produced with
special cheapness because of their
luxuriant vegetation. Anything of a
vegetable nature can be made to yield |
In our own’ country alcohol will be-
come one of the most important farm |
products. A still with a capacity of |
hundreds of gallons a day can be built |
for $500, the apparatus being so sim- |
ple that alcohol can be turned out as |
easily as cider from ‘a cider press. |
One such plant will consume all of
the farm waste within a radius of a |
couple of miles—cornstalks and corn-
cobs, frost-bitten potatoes, rotten ap- |
ples, etc. It may even handle all the |
neighborhood garbage. Laws will re- |
centage of a “denaturing” agent.
Professor Bell says: “The world’s |
annual consumption of coal and oil is |
so enormous that we are now within |
measurable distance of the end of the |
supply.” Sra . i
As for its utilization for power, it |
is simply a matter of suitably modi-'
fying machinery. Oil will steadily
advance in price, as well as coal, and
thus inevitably’ must soon arrive the
dawning of the age of alcohol.
Reasoning from One to the Other.
If it be true, as stated in a Forsiun
humane journal, that common salt
will kill chickens, that citric acid, the
base of lemonade, promptly kills cats
and rabbits, that horses, hyenas and
hedgehogs can drink prussic acid (a
deadly poison to man) with impunity,
and that a pigeon can take 12 grains
of morphine without serious effects
we certainly need to be most careful
in reasoning from one to the other as
to the results of experimentation up-
on one for the benefit of the other.—
