   Hutchinson News (Newspaper) - February 22, 1890, Hutchinson, Kansas                                Style "A" Single Door-Closed. Our Style "D"~Side Board- Attached to either Style "B" or Style "C" Refrierator. Peerless Ice Chest. Style 'C-Double Doors Style "E-Side Board. The PEERLESS Refrigerator The M-A.3SrXJF,-A.OTXJI:lEID BY hinson Manufacturing HUTCHINSON, KANSAS. We herewith show you a few styles of our Refrigerators, and this advertisement will continue but for a short time, it will be well for you to make a note of this after reading, so that if you are not ready to purchase at once >ou will remember us when you are ready to look into the merits of the Peerless. You are well aware that it costs money to make honest goods, ard as long as the Hutchinson Manufacturing Company make Refrigerators they will be made that way, and if in course of time we find that our business is not appreciated we will discontinue to manufacture them, as we propose to make the best or none. So far our sales have been beyond our expectations, so much so that we are making a larger number now than at any previous time. Yoa will hear this Patent Refrigerator spoken of, and that with removeable lining, etc., so as to be cleaned. Use common sense in constructing a Refrigerator, get a pure air circulation and let the impurieties be carried off in the waste water, and you will not have to keep your Refrigerator in the back alley for tear that people will conclude on coming in the house that you have started a tannery on your premises. We have made several improvements to our Refrigerator this year, and expect to do so from time to time, as we feel confident that they are second to none, and for the benefit of some of our competitors making claims we still have confidence to offer the following on the Peerless: We will donate any charitable institution I50.00 if there is a better Refrigerator than the PEERLESS in the market to-day, and $50.00 to the party who can produce it. The qualities to be based on the economical use ot ice, cleanliness and the preserving qualities of whatever is placed in the provision chnmber.   As mouey talks it is useless to say more.

A sagacious friend who recently went from (lie Straits of Gibraltar to the lio.s|iliunis h.-iiil 10 us before we left home: "Ynuwill *ee nothing nunc purely oriental th:in Tangier in all ymn proposed journey." l.Vrt:iinly we have found the place bu completely foreign |o all our ideas that only the old fashioned word "omtaruli^h" t;eoms adequate to dci.crihe it Here 1.4 the most western of all iIiobou-ports of northern Africa lyine, within tiiglil of the coa.-.t of Spain and the Ruck Of (iihralllir, a place of 1(1,000 ilihuliit-ant.s, upon whose wa\ y of life and thought Kuiopcau Christian civilization h;i:i Bcareely made an impreBsion. Vet more limn 2U0 years ago this city fur a ehort period belonged to the FOnglit.li crowu. It is now the residence of those foreign ministers who are accredited to the kuI-tuu of Morocco. It iy in almost daily communication with France, Spain uud Qibrultar. lx>th England ami Spain maintaining poBtoHicea, with separate bureaus, stamps and mail bags. Thero are newspapers published hero in English and Spanish The Hotel Continental is so good that there Is u current mot to the effect that the best hotel in Europe may bo found in Africa , IIA111) TO LAND. Tho English come "for Bport," the. particular attraction being the chase of wild boar, for the which a manual of "bog sticking" lias been elaborately set forth. Vet, notwithstanding all this the' Moors arid the Jews goon in theirold fashioned ways as if they were living in the Fifteenth century Indeed, 11 iscasytotx*-llevo that we see In Tangier much of the vame sort of life which prevailed in southern Spain 400 years ago-before the conquest of Granada-with one iuipor-lanl qualification Tangier has nothing which suggests the learning, tho science, the ui u, or even the sac redness of the great cities of Andalusia when Moorish �way was dominant The Arabic or Mohammedan dominion, without the Arabic enlightenment, loses all the elinnn which Is suggested by what is even now to bo seen in Cordova. Granada and Seville. The transit to Tangier is easily made In eight hours from Cadiz, in lour hours from llihndlur in twelve hours from Malaga, anil the traveler iua> have his choice mining many coiii}H-iing t-lcumers Ol dillerenl bizes uud different disadvantages The transit over, a lauding must be ittudu The beach slopes so gradually that large vessels cannot come near the shore, uud people, emtio, baggage ami goods must all be transferred to lighters and rtiwhiials und thus brought to land 111 rough wealiiei ilicsli-auier will snino-limes lie for hours wilhoiii U-nig able to dlsemliaiU its cargo, and one company of ttavutejs wiiuui wa iiml luuirumi tu Sioiii without putting foot upoD the shore of Afnc:l When it is rough, but not 60 rough passengers are carried ashore in the arms of stalwart Moors, or perhaps ride papoose fashion. Fortunately, these descendants of the pirates who used to infest the Morocco coasts are capital boatmen, with strong anus and legs, so that they may bo safely trusted. New perplexities arise when the shores are reached. In all Tangiers 1 do not think there is a wheeled vehicle-not a gig, a dray or even a wheelbarrow. So a gang of porters seizes a traveler's trunk's, handbags, shawl straps and urn-luellas, and transports them up the narrow and sinuous lanes which lead to tho hotel. As I looked from the rowboat to the top of the lauding stairs I noticed in the crowd, which was dressed in all the colors of the rainbow and in all the varieties of ra.stern fabrics, a tall, dark faced Moor, witii a capacious turban, a broad, blue (lowing robe and a stout slalf, ending in a pastoral crook. "1 am Mohammed," he called out, pointing to his heart either to conlinn his identity or his veracity, 1 cannot say which. "The man 1 am looking for," was my answer. From that hour until our departure Mohammed took charge of us. Wo did not engage him, but lie engaged us. ilis tread was as diguilied und steady as that of Salvini when he personates Othello. His shoulders were broad enough for a Sam-sou. Ilis voice was deep, rich and musical, like that of Carl Formes. When he was mounted on bis favorite mule, leading our cavalcado through the market place, or halting before tho suake charmer, or climbing "tho mountain," where foreigners havo their houses, he was quite magnificent. BiOUTH IN TBS CITV. Tho architocluro of Tangier is much more impressive when seen in mass than when seen In detail. Looking toward tho city from tho steamer in the early dawn the view was beautiful. Terrace above terrace rise white, Hat roofed houses, over which tower the minarets of two or three mosques. The city is divided into two parts, through which runs the principal street, leading from the "water gale" to tho "market gate." Upou the western or highest acclivity latbekarbat or citadel-a combination of residence, fortress, court of justice and prison-a forlorn and unattractive Alliambia, The shops, the bazars, the dwelling houses are interesting because so completely different from those to which Europeans are wonted. So is tho boys' school that was "kept" just opposite the door of tho Hotel Uoutineiital. Twenty bright eyed little fellows, seated on the ground, were taught by au old man in turban and speetucles tt> rejieut over and over again verses from the Koran iu u sjng-eong tone, while cards with the words in Arabic were held in their hands. Solomon's precepts rtapc/iting the util- Hi of the rod were not forgotten by the tu bailed pedagogue. He plied the stick gently but (Irmly on the backs of thu inattentive scholars, precisely as in south, em Spain the sellers of Christmas turkeys drive their bi|Mida from door to door in search of a purchaser. If the buildings of Tangier are not pleasing, the landscape is most rewarding The beautiful curve of the bay, tho wide view of the oceau. llie.iuwr hills of gejitle acclivltymtersected by pleasant valleys, tho foliage green in winter, and including such sub-tropical plants as palms, cactus, aloes, eucalyptus, pepper trees, oranges and lemons-all this was charming. In the distance on the European coast we could see Trafalgar, where Nelson fought and died; Tarifa, a name associated with most unpleasant "duties," and Gibraltar, with its command, ing fortress. Here run the straits which unite the sea to the ocean, and here are tho pillars of Hercules, which always have been and always will bo landmarks to the traveler and the merchant.-D. C. Gilman in Baltimore Sun. Why Doe* the EurLh Quake? The earthquake theory which &eems most probable, and the one which has the most adherents, is the one which lellB us that the "quake" is caused by an effort of \intemul heat to make its escape through a weak part of tint surrounding earth crust. Mow thick the eaith'scrust is would he a hard matter to lind out for a certainty. The German government is now at work upon a shall (if it has not been recently abandoned), near Schlade-bach, with the object especially of obtaining trustworthy data concerning the rate of increase iu the earth's temperature as it uears the interior. The last statement tho writer read concerning this shaft said ihat it was at that time 1,892 meters ill depth. The temperature was about 48 dogs, centigrade, equal to about 120 Fahrenheit. If it increases uniformly us the depth increases, as it has heretofore, the boiling point of water will be reached at about a,000 meters (providing iho shaft could bo sunk to that depth), which is equtd to about two miles. At this rate of increaso the point at which platinum melts would bo found to be at a depth of forty-live miles. According to these figures the earth's crust cannot bo more than one-ninetieth of its radius. Professor Newcomb, connected with the naval observatory at Washington, said at the tiiuo of the August earthquake in 188-1; "The only common sense explanation of an earthquake, to my mind, is that down in the bowels of the earth, say from 20 to 100 miles beneath the surface, there is fluid matter, boiling at a white beat, which as it gradually becomes cooled, contracts, leaving a space between it and the solid parts, and the heavy weight of tho earth above the vacant place causes the earth to sink, then you have your earthquake."-tit Louis Republic. t'ortugur* Klii( nnd Queen.
