' '; . A New Fuel. ;
; Many attempts have been made to
use turf or peat as fuel, but this mate
rial has never obtained great impor
tance, ' because ' in comparison to its
small . heating value,- its' volume was
too large, and consequently , the, trans
portation was found too expensive,
moreover, the considerable amount of
ashes it produced made it impractica
ble to use in any quantity. ' - Suddenly
it seems the time has arrived for peat
to enter into competition with, and in
some cases to substitute all other fuels.
An invention,!! thfe' economical irapor
tanqe. of which jis inestimable at. the
present moment, Vras; Recently patented
by Mr. !Rosendahl of Christinstad,
Norway, which country probably pos
sesses the .largest denoHitH of neat in
L the worldf.' His method of making a
practical fuel of peat simply consists
in heating the peat in iron ovens to
250 degrees centigrade, and when this
temperature is readied to close all the
Valves of the oven, the temperature of
250 degrees being - kept up tor seven
hours. This process changes the mater
rial considerably, and the tar andjgas
eous products of the coal-like remainder
represent 80 percent'ofvthe whole. ' A
chemical analysis of the product, made
at the Christiania University, showed
jthe prepared '.peat' to contain 65- per
cent of pure oarbon, 16 per cent of
oxygen, 6 per cent of hydrogen, 4 per
cent water and, what is most surpris
ing, only 6 per cent of substances whioh
will remain as residue in the: shape of
ashes. The new peat-coal has a the
oretical heatinj value of ,6,500 calorio
units, which is equal to that of medium
grade anthracite coal.; ; ':' The cost Of
peat-coal, however, is so small that it
pan be sold at a profit for $1.75 per ton,
while an qual quantity'of anthracite
coal costs from $4 to $5. By the pro
cess b! Rosendhal,' even in . its present
crude state, the' production; of peat-ooal
costs but. 75 cents per ton.&nd ,it is very
iiiteiy tnat even. this cost will be con
siderably reduced before long. Tests
have been made with the new material
at the Krupp works at Essen, Germany,
and it was found that the new fuel
gave better results than , either anthra
cite or. coke iri the iron foundries and
for the production of Bessemer steel. "

With a better understanding of the
transient nature of the many phys
ical ills, which vanish before DroDer ef
forts gentle efforts pleasant efforts
rightly directed. There is comfort in
the knowledge, that so many forms of
sickness are not due to. any actual dis
ease, but simply to a constipated condi
tion of the system, which the pleasant
family laxative, Syrup of Figs, prompt
ly removes. That is why it is the only
remedy with millions of families, and is
everywhere esteemed so highly by all
who value good health.; Its beneficial
effects are due to the fact, that it is the
one remedy which promotes internal
cleanliness without debilitating the
organs on which it acts. It is therefore
all important, in order to get its bene
ficial effects, to note when you pur-,
chase, that you have the genuine arti
cle, which is manufactured by the Cali
fornia Fig Syrup Co. only and sold by i
all reputable druggists. - ;:: r; ,; , 1
If in. the enjoyment of good health,
and the system is rec-ular, laxatives or
other remedies are then not needed. If
afflicted with any actual disease, one

physicians, but if in need of a laxative,
one should have the best, and with the
well-informed everywhere, Syrup of
Figs stands highest and is most largely
Jtoed and gives most general satisfaction. .

all the mineral mixtures in the world
cannot cure.- S.S.S. (guaranteed purely
vegetable ) is a real blood remedy for
blood diseases and has no equal. ' .
Mrs. Y. T. Buck, of Delaney, Ark., had
Scrofula or twenty-five years and most
of the time was under the care of the
doctors who could not . relieve . her. , A
specialist said' he
could cure : her, but
he filled her . with
arsenic and - potash
which almost ruined
her constitution.' She
then , took nearly
every so-called , blood
medicine and drank
them by the wholesale,
but they did not reach
her trouble. : Some
one advised her to try
: S.S.S. and she verr
soon formd that she had a real hlnnd
remedy at last. .She says: ''Alter tak
ing one dozen, bottles of S.S.S. I am
perfectly well; my skin is . . clear
and healthy and I would not be . in
my former condition for two thousand
dollars. Instead of drying up the poison
in my system, like the potash and
arsenic, - S.S.S. drove the disease out
through the skin, -and I was perma
nently rid of it." - ,.
A Real Blood Remedy
' S.S.S. never fails to cure Scrofula,
Eczema, Rheumatism Contagious Blood
Poison, or any disorder of the blood.
