This is the season when Root fires in chimneys are frequent. They selo'om result disastrously, but they cause much annoyance, and there is always the pos- sibility of danger. Remove the soot in the chimney; this is an excellent pre- ventive. During the cold weather do not thrust a bridle bit into the mouth of a horse, until you have first warmed the hit. If yon wish to kno.v why sve give this acMce. touch your tongue to a cold piece of steel when the mercury in the thermometer registers zero. X 4v It is quite customary, when a man seems to be down, to give him a kick, but it dont always pay. A many men who have passed through the fire, and proved themselves superior to trials that would crush weaker men, have lived to scorn the later fawnings of peo- ple who were friends "for revenue only.'' At a recent single sitting, a Maadvillc man ate a w hole "possum and half an- other, a half peck of swpet potatoes.four rusk, a half-pint of cranberry sauce, a big bunch of celery and a dozen crack- ers, washing them down with six bot- tles of beer, and then left the table hun- gry. When boots are wet through, do not drv them by the fire. As soen as they are taken off. fill them quite full of dry oats. This grain will rapidly absorb every vestige of damp from wet leather. As it takes up the moisture it swells and fills up the boot like a tight fitting last, keeping its form good and drying the leather without hardening it. When you hitch your team aud go in- to the house to warm yourself or get a drink, don't forget to blanket your horse. The horse gets cold, when he stands out in such weather as the pres- ent, and has to suffer, although he cannot tell the misery he endures. Be kind and humane to that noble the horse at all seasons of the year. It is money in your pocket to do so. The atteaipt to run wet beans through evaporators, and bring them out as as which has been tried this season on an extensive scale ap- pears to be a success. The color is much improved also and the expense is quite small for the work. It will save the farmers quite a sum on what was con- sidered a dead drop loss in parts of the ceuntrv. LIGHTING CARS BY GAS- The SnccessJul Test of A Xew Dunkirk Invention. The Martin Car company are making a test of an invention for light- ing cars with gas. They have fitted up a car with the apparatus, and a test of it was made Friday. The car was run o--'er the D. A. V. P. road to the Junc- tion and back. It was a severe day and night for the test, but the machinery, and "verything connected with the pro- duction of the gas orked to the perfect satisfaction of the inventor and the Mar- tin company. Charles H. Ketcham, superintendent of the road, was giving it his personal supervision, and ex- pressed himself as very much pleased with the manner in which it worked, and with the briilancv and puritv of the light. The purpose of the invention is to make use of gasoline. A copper tank about twenty inches square and six or eight inches thick is put upon the roof of the car. It is parked tightly full with layers of blanket fabric. Two holes are made through from top to bot- tom, and through these the heat of the lamp-chimneys is conducted, so as to warm the tank. A special advantage of the system is that no peculiar lamps are needed; the old oil ones are adopted di- rectly in use. When put iu use, ti-.e woolen filling of the tank issaturat-J with gasoline and then drained, lise squeezing a sponge. Air is passed through the tank from the air brake at a pressure of half a pound, and this air is then burned. That is all there is to it. The tank will supply gas enough for seventy hours" service. The invention worked perfectly on its trial. There were but two lights in the car, but they lighted the car well. The flame was clear and steady, and the light was white and strong. It was much superior to oil. The lamp was kept cool, moreover, while with the oil it is heated. The chimney could be grasped with the hands without burn- ing. The apparatus is safe, moreover. Tests of apparatus much like it in New York showed that fire aa d xiol ows and pressure could not explode the Dunkirk Observer.
