To-Day the Upright Piano Is
tailed In the riaco of tho
Joy of tho Family.
Thlrty years ago homo wasn't happy

parlor, so that the taught- ot the
house could entertain the visitor ev
ery Sunday afternoon by chortling a
llttlo after she had been sufilcleutly
re axed. The organ was always a beau
tiful thing very beautiful. A real
beveled edge mirror was set In the
top so that daughter could look upon
herself as she Industrlouuly pumped
with both feet and rhorded with both
bands. It was great exercise playing
tho organ In those days.
All organs were decorated alike. On
one was a picture ot mother's fa
ther and mother; on the other side
wero father's parents. Cousin Harry,
who was doing so well lu Denver,
beamed out from one side ot the Chi
nese Illy that Aunt Molly brought bark
from the city on her last trip there,
while on the other side ot the Illy,
looking down severely upon the wax
fruit In Its glass rase, was Prof. Dar

Wgh school.

Solution ot the smoke problem Is claimed by F J Doyle, the Inventor
of a coal-burning device which was recently tested In a Chicago Junction
railroad locomotive In the ptesence ot road mecnantcs and expert engineers.
While moving at various rales of speed with a number of heavy laden cars
attached to It the engine emitted only a slight stream of white smoke, which
resembled steam. The device can be attached to any locomotive. It can
also be used in the boiler rooms of manufacturing plants, the Inventor de
clares. The secret ot the apparent effectiveness of the appliance Is said to
Ho In the faet that It cantos perfect combustion. The coal Is tranefermd
Into coke, the gas froai the coal being consumed In the process and then
the coke Is burned.

erally realised by tho farmer. For tluv
melioration of heavy clay land they
are exceptionally vnluablo. This ts
particularly so with the ashes ot soft
eeal, as such usually are reduced al
most to a dust. Coal ashes have a
fertlllier value. This opinion, how
ever. Is not held generally. Tho coil
beds contain phosphorus, potash, nitro

Important Ingredients. When the orig
inal trees out of which wero formed
the coal beds were reduced to coal the
mineral elements remained In them,
and consequently those saiuo elements
so with tho ashes.
Ono reason why people have formed
an Idea' that coal ashes contain no fer
tility Is that the trees now grown
have In them less carbon than these In
tho old days and thus the percentage
of other elements to carbon Is prob
ably greater now than thon. which
gives a larger value to our wood ash,
but does not annihilate tho nluo n
