New Machines Can Sweep With
out Raising Dust,
Motor Driven Cars Can Clean Com
munity Without Water The Dirt Is
Sucked From the Pavement and Car
ried to the Body of the Machine.
The advisability of introducing an
auto street cleaner is being seriously
considered by the New York street
cleaning department. Tests hnvo been
made of a now type of street cleaning
machine which have impressed many
of the officials who have something
to do nbout the welfare and improve
ment of the city. The demonstrations
showed that the streets can he thor
oughly, noiselessly mid dustlessly
The machines, which ure manufac
tured and operated by the Emerson
Contracting company, as was shown
in the tests, can. at the will of the
operators, clean the streets either by a
sweeping or n (lushing process, it thus
having a distinct ndvantago over the
various types of flushing machines In
that cleaning can be done without wa
ter as well as when using water.
It is not intended thnt the machines
are to be purchased by the city. The
Emerson company's offer is that the
street cleaning depnrtment shall lease
these machines for the use of the de
partment and pay for such use at a
stated price per 1,000 square yards of
streets cleaned, the Emerson company
paying all costs of operation and main
tenance. The machines, which require but
two men to work them, are motor driv
en and built in different sizes to suit
different conditions of traffic and
street width, with a carrying capacity
for sweeping proportional to the width
of brooms. The brooms are five and
nine feet in width, and the sweepings
arc instantaneously thrown into con
veyors that carry the sweepings to the
body of the machines, which hold five
and ten cubic yards' respectively. The
process raises absolutely no dust, thus
avoiding the spreading of germs and
doing away with other objectionable
features of the present day method of
cleaning streets. The machines when
filled can bo driven to the nearest
dumping station, emptied and the
work resumed. One of the claimed ad
vantages of the machine for flushing
purposes over the other types now on
the market is that it will clean 1,000
square yards with forty gallons of wa
ter as against 400 to 050 gallons used
by other machines, and wet sweepings,
too, are taken up into the machine Just
as expeditiously as are the dry. No
sweepings are washed into the gut
ter, catch basin or sewer.
Texas Improvement Club a Success.
The Civic Improvement club of San
Antonio, Tex., looks back upon tho
year 1010 as one of distinct progress In
civic betterment. Its educational work
has Included the introduction of the
study of civic improvement into the
public schools, so that when the young
student leaves tho high school to as
sume the responsibilities of citizenship
he will be fully grounded In its princi
ples. The leaguo has also worked for
tho establishment of a municipal band
to give free concerts in tho plazas and
parks, for tho removal of all unsightly
billboards and fences, for new ordi
nances making such Improvements
compulsory and preventing further en
croachments on the river, for cleaning
up vacant lots and planting trees and
flowers and for establishing play
grounds. Prizes For Home Gardens.
Tho offering of prizes for home gar
dens Is now receiving considerable at
tention in many cities, for tho commit
tees on awards are completing their
work. Thoso premiums are offered by
civic organizations, business Arms and
Individuals for general Improvement,
best gardens and window boxes, and
tho high praise thnt is given the re
sults In tho public press nnd by those
interested In tho movement Is proof
that nothing beautifies our homes and
cities more than horticulture and Is
more easily and readily appreciated.
The florist should certainly give this
movement his hearty approval and do
all in his power to make the world
more beautiful.

Record of Schoolteacher Who Has Quit
After Thirty-nine Years.
Thirty-nine years u schoolma'am
and never slapped, spanked or boxed
the cars of i pupil that is the rer
ord of Miss Mary Todd, who has just
retired ns instructor of drawing and
mathematics in the West Aurora till.)
"Spare the strap and spoil the boy"
has never been tho motto of Miss
Todd. No pupil in her class has ever
been made to extend his little hand
to be "warmed" with a ruler, and no
girl she taught ever had her ears box
ed for whispering. Frank Vanderllp,
president of the National City bank of
New York, is one of the hundreds of
successful men who have often said
they owed their early success. to the
kind words of Miss Todd.
"Kind words go further jvith the
boys and girls in school than a whip
ping," Miss Todd said.
"I have always used one plan with
pupils In my classes when they were
unruly, and that was to use words of
kindness. Instead of rushing for the
ruler or tho strap when my pupils
were guilty of wrongdoing I would
place my arm around them and appeal
to their sense of righteousness. My
plan always seemed to be tho host.
"School children are not bettered
any by whippings. In my long expe
rience I have found that the child
who Is shown kindness nnd given ad

Chemical society that he has discover

traded from iodine nnd which Is sim

Fennell has been working on this sub
ject for the past two years. He told
how he found this new clement and
stated that he Is now engaged In sever
al new developments with It which
will bring his discovery to a better
Professor Fennell said that he came
upon the element In a roundabout way
while he was making experiments on
another line; that he dropped that lino
of research and has now found this
new clement, which will make his dis
covery of great benefit to humanity by
reason of the fact that materials can
be made from this nt a much less ex
pense than with tho usi of radium.

The Hen's Laying Capacity.
A writer in the Petaluma Toultry
Journal says of White Leghorns: "In
the pullet year the pullet lays more
eggs because she has more time in
which to lay them. If she commences
laying in September or October she
will have twelve mouths of laying be
fore she molts, so she can produce 180
"When she molts she is unproductive
Tor nn average time of throe months,
so tho next year she has only nine
months in which to lay. If she does
as well as she did when a pullet she
may lay 135 eggs. As liens grow older
they take more time to molt nnd the
rests between the periods of laying nro
longer, so she will probably bo unpro
ductive four mmitlis the third laying
year, and will dojWell if she produces
100 eggs. Beyond this It is very un
certain what she will do."
Rape Pasture For Fowl.
Rape makes very good pasture for
cither young chickens or laying hens.
For best results the seed should bo
sown as early as possible in the spring
and allowed to got a good start before
the poultry Is permitted to pasture In
it. If a good growing season the rape
plants will continue to put forth now
foliage, which will bo sufficient green
food for the birds throughout tho sea
son unless the yards are overcrowded.
Hens or chickens can never do their
best when confined lu yards so small
that a sufficient amount of green food
cannot be grown. In case the chick
ens strip the plants of the leaves it is
a good plan to cut the stalks and keep
tho fowls out until they nre again well
started. Rural New Yorker.
German Grafting Wax.
Take in proportion one pound rosin,
half a pound beeswax, one ounce tal
low, half an ounce Venetian turpentine
(the last to prevent running in hot
weather). Place all in a ;ossel and
boll. Stir well, aud when thoroughly
molted pour the whole mass into cold
water. When cooled off somewhat
work well and form into sticks. Tills
is an old German recipe and one of
the best.
No Profit In Poor Feed.
Some stock owners argue that musty,
burned hay that is a little too far gone
to feed to tho horses Is plenty good
enough for the cows, which, needing
more roughage than tho horse, will eat
it when they can get nothing else. But
the unoffending cow Is sure to get her
revenge in the milk pail for that kind
of treatment.
Remedies Should Be Applied
When Disease Is Manifested.
The changes in the weather during
the spring months may cause the horse
to contract a cold.
The cold is usually manifested by a
mucous discharge from either one or
both nostrils, a staring coat, general
depression, slightly off feed, bowels
constipated and scanty passages, high
colored urine. These symptoms be
come aggravated as tho disease pro
gresses. The mucous discharge takes
on n more sticky appearance, nnd the
cough Is quite frequent when tho
horse is exercised.
The cold may extend into the throat,
'causing considerable soreness, as ' is
shown by the horse protruding the
head, tenderness from manipulations
of the throat and frequent coughing.
If the cold is neglected it becomes
chronic and may last for months. In
this condition the animal loses flesh,
the coat remaining rough and good
feed apparently doing the animal no
Preventive treatment is, of course,
much easier than medicine. One
should keep the horse out of drafts
while warm. Blanket tho animal dur
ing cold weather whllo In tho stable.
If obliged to work the horse during
rainy weather or in severe storms a
canvas blanket to keep tho horse dry
is necessary.
Medicinal treatment consists of
steaming the nose, using a pall of hot
water to which is attached a sack,
the other end being cut so as to allow
tho steam to enter tho nose. A pint
of raw linseed oil to open the bowels
Is betieflcial. A hot poultice of Unseed
meal applied to the throat will relieve
tho tenderness there. When tho pa
tient begins to improve n course of
tonics is Indicated. C. Ij. Barnes, Col

With, plenty of clover hens will re
