Funeral of Jubcz Jcnkins-Kntcr-taimncnt
John T. Jones, hotel keeper on North
Bromley avenue, has secured a patent
for an ale condenser and cooler. The
device is a most Ingenious one, and Mr.
Jones has worked Industriously to per
fect it. It can be made of either copper
or tin, with a double faucet ana wo
pipes. By a turn on one side of the
faucet, the froth of the ale will come
out, and when the other side Is turned
the condensed ale will appear. Mr.
Jones has the condenser In operation
at his hotel. Behind the faucet is a
coil of pipe, around which the Ice Is
placed. This keeps the liquid cold. He
has received saverul communications
fnm firms, asking the price of the
patent, but Is yet undecided whether to
s:ll or work It himself.

This tree Is fortv Upt hl-rh ami hm
a spread of at least thlnty feet and Is
about thirty years old and at least one
foot thick. It wns taken from the
Moosic mountains on a patent machine
for the purpose. The tree Is pulled from
me fciounu ime a turnup from a gar
den, without disturbing the roots;
therefore the limbs do not need cropping,
The earth Is all brought in about the
roots and the tree Is guaranteed to live.
By planting trees In this way at least
thirty years can be gained and the
people of this generation can have some
benefit of the shade. The tree and dirt
around the roots weigh about live tons

and took a day and a half to trans
The system of planting trees with
these machines has proved a great sue
cess, 'those about the grounds of the
World's exposition in Chicago were
planted In this manner. In Rochester,
N. Y 200 trees, some seventeen inches
in diameter, were moved back from
Lake -avenue to widen the street with
out a single loss. The parks in Paris
which were destroyed in 1871 by the
Germans were re-set in this way, and
at present over 100 cities in this coun
try have these machines working. Bos

two; Albany, two; Detroit, four; Buffa
