Howe amp Polk have just entered upon a line of work which promises to give j their Plant increased prominence and to keep every department running at full capacity. Their latest departure is the manufacture of steel Telegraph Telephone electric Light and trolley poles something entirely new of the kind designed to supersede the tubular form of Metal pole in Vogue up to the present. The inventor g. V. A. Conger of new York Lias been in this City for a couple it lays past and thursday two poles As samples the first Ever assembled in this City were put together under his supervision. The poles Are 30 to 32 feet in length consisting of 3 bars of a a us Iron 2 by 21 inches fastened together by seven spreaders and collars made of malleable Iron the top covered by a weather Cap neatly embracing tie three pieces. A Patent on the new style of pole was granted to or. Conger first May 1900, and again May 1901. It May not be generally known to our readers that the wooden pole in the Large cities of this country is pretty generally a thing of the past. Many of the City ordinances prohibit them altogether. The tubular Iron pole in use is an awkward cumbersome affair made up of several sections riveted together. If the claims made for or. Congers invention hold Good his will undoubtedly be the pole of the future. In Point of service and durability after adequate tests it is said to completely fill the Bill while constructed As it is along Light and Graceful lines it is rather an ornament than otherwise to the streets. The pole weighs 400 to 450 pounds. 33per cent less than the tub Ubirt pole. It i planted in Concrete at a depth of three feet just one half of the depth that is needed for 1 he tubular pole. In raising the pole three men can handle it As against five or six required for the tubular pole while of course Only one half of the time is consumed in digging the holes. Howe amp Polk off and on during the summer have been manufacturing a a us Iron for or. Congers poles which was shipped to Newark n. J., where the assembling was done. Those poles were sent to South America and Africa. The poles assembled As samples in this City yesterday will be used As electric Light poles in Brooklyn. N. Y., and Are the part of an order of several car loads. To a representative of this paper or. Conger expressed himself As very Well pleased with the samples and stated that he Hall Given the exclusive manufacture of the poles to Howe a Polk. Considering the Strong endorsements that or. Congers invention has received from eminent engineers and the future evidently before it the structural tubing Plant would seem to have a very important contract on its hands. 0.

What is unquestionably the finest collection of philippine curios that has As yet reached this Section arrived at South Danville tuesday morning As a part of the personal belongings of t. Judson Yastine principal musician in the band of the 43rd regiment u. S. Yols., whose recent arrival from san Francisco was noted in these columns. The collection indeed is a museum in itself the most interesting object probably is a Model of a native House some 22 inches by 18. The Model which to the minutest detail is a faithful counterpart of a native Shack is constructed of the same material Bamboo roofed with it is an instructive object lesson and from it alone can one obtain a Correct idea of a filipino Shack which May he 10 by 12 feet one Story High and supported by pots three feet or so above ground. It contains a Large Hall or apartment opening on one Side into a Row of bed rooms and on the other unto a Broad veranda. It has no Chimney As no fire is used in the Bouse cooking being done on the outside. The roof is effectual in turning the water but the building is no Protection against the cold As the air blows through the loosely constructed sides and Toor. The pigs and chickens of the family Are domiciled under the building. In the collection there Isa Beautiful Rug soft and Heible deftly Woven of sea grass upon which the filipino sleeps and in which he Rolls himself when the night becomes cold. There Are also brooms and water buckets Odd in the extreme Beautiful delicately wrought fans one made of Ivory another of Peacock feathers Ami still another of Sandal Wood every movement of which As it is used throws a delicate fragrance in the face. There Are eight canes All of which Are curiosities and one of Ebony tipped at each end with filipino Silver which is of no Little value by reason of the rare and delicate carving with which its entire length is decorated. The weapons of the collection form no Small part representing Bolos and daggers of every description some crude enough in appearance but Many finely wrought and mounted on handles of Caribou Horn. Some of the designs especially that of a malay a Crese a Are especially cruel and murderous and give a Good idea of what our boys in the Philippines were a up one of the weapons which or. Yastine values very highly is a Dagger by which he was stabbed in the face. The scar of the wound remains but the filipino who inflicted the Gash is no More As he was shot by one of our soldiers before he could strike the second blow another interesting article is a Jug of a be not or filipino whiskey a Clear and colourless liquid almost pure alcohol distilled from Rice. It is a highly into i eating drink and a Sciort indulgence in it will unbalance the mind. Beno it is said was responsible for the outbreak of insanity among the american troops in the Philippines. Or. Yastine since his return has been treating his friends to a taste of Beno but a a taste invariably was All that was desired As it has a villainous flavor and is not at All adapted to the civilized palate. It would be useless to attempt to enumerate one half of or. Yastine a Fine collection of curios. It would require at least one half a Day to look them All carefully Over. Miss Boden badly injured.
