ed front one dim path of • light to
another thrown at interval's upon a
, street by flickering lamps—or
who recalls with a shiver the winter
days when he was forced to leave his
warm bed to start a breakfast fire in
the old cook stove—or who ever liv-
... ed ten mile^from.a telephone or„ tele-
graph station, the development of tir-
ban and interurban transportation, of
lighting, of gas and electric stoves, of
the telephones and telegraph, is a
source of wonder. To the younger*
generation who remember none of
these things and who accept the con-
veniences provided by public utilities
as part of the natural order of things,
full appreciation of the value of these
, services is more difficult.
"When we consider the maximum
of conveniences that is ours and the
corresponding debt that we owe to
developers of public service as we
know it there should sink into our
consciousness an' appreciation that
should cause us to be exceedingly
lenient in our criticism of temporary
inconveniences, ito be exceedingly
: interested and generous in' our atti-
tude toward all steps that are taken
for the promotion and progress of thje
things that are essential to a happy
social and economic environment. '

NEW YORK-CHICAGO LINE '
'WORKS NEW ERA
. I .. J'-. .
A new era" in telephony was mark-
ed when a 500-wire cable, 882 miles
in legtli, connecting Chicago and
New York, was placed in service re-
cently by the American Telephone and
, This cable is the longest overland
Wire carrier in the world. Most of
the construction is overhead, the
cable being suspended from poles,
while 144 miles is in conduits under-
ground. It cost $30,000,000.
The circuits can be used -
graph business slmu.o.n, •-..$■ wit i
f the telephone conversations, and
should the circuits be developed into
duplex circuit ~ where telegraph mes-
sages are sent an-;! resoivn!''at the
same time, the cable can .handle 520
telegraph .me:-> -.ges and 258 conver-
sations at same tir.:e. '

Texas farmers and tourists now en-
joy 784 miles more of the ; Federal
highways than .they did a year ago,
accor<ling to the Sears-Roebuck Agri-
cultural Foundation. This milage, com
pleted in the year ending June 30, cost
a total of SI 1,777,972, of which the
federal' government furnished $4,867,-
31g. High way construction under "this
plan now under way in the state to-
tals 1509 miles, while the total mile-
age completed previous to last year
was 3122;miles, •
This additional mileage while a
convenience to the tourists in the
state, is a godsend to the farmer, ac-
cording to the Foundation- It is esti-
mated that each and every farmer in
this section of the country averages
23 tons of farm products hauled to:,
market and 5 tons of feed, fuel, fer-
tiliser, machinery . supplies, each from
town. When good roads make trucks
feasible this is not very burdensome,
but it represents a good many hours'
labor whgre horses and. poor roads
must be used. And so while the tour-
ist finds the inter-city roads mighty
comfortable, to the farmer a good
serviceable road from his farm to the
nearest market is a downright neces-
sity. .■■ ' . ,....
The expansion of hard road systems
both in this land1 other states in recent
kets takes in- fifteen or thirty ..dollars
up to several hundred dollars, a day,
varying with the locality, the pre-
ponderance . of buyers being 'tourists
driving through the-vicinity, Some of
these are nothing more than stands
of simple board construction while
the more pretentious are housed in
buildings; which may be locked after
the day's or the season's „ business.
The most successful of the markets
are so placed as to have convenient
parking facilities where, prospective
buyers may examine the articles of
goods, which "shxrald"be"'<)f good quality
vet moderately priced and attractive-
ly displayed. " '

WASHINGTON, ' Aug. 29:—Gove-
■imiirient agencies and experts " - here
interested in the conservation of oil
for fuel and lubricants are looking
into what has become known as the
"Linton, process" supplemented by
other discoveries. - , .'
The inventions behind this process
abandon all j the theories "for - the pro-
duction of motor fuel;;: by what is
knjpwn as the "crackling" : method,
principally identified by high temper
atures and the use of great pressure,
applied to the oil.
The new way is one of "cohver^
sinn," not breaking- or "cracking."
Fxperts assert that if the "Linton
process" does all that its supporters
claim, then the cost of motor fuel
oil and lubricants will be reduced one-
The New Method.
In the "conversion" method only
low. temperatures are used and no
pressure is needed.
In the so-called cracking process
large percentages of free carbon are
separated from the molecule's, which
are broken and permeate the gasoline
and residuum. This is what causes
the deposit of carbon, on cylinder
heads and valves resulting in engine
The Linton, motor fuel, composed
entirely Qf methylenes, is not only
devoid of free carbon, but it dissolves

NEW? COMET COMING
A faint comet which may, how-
ever, become bright enough to be seen
by the unaided eye as a sniall patch
of light, has been discovered by Prof.
Richard Schorr of the Berggdorf
Observatory, near - Hamburg,, Ger-
many, according to advices received
at Cambridge by - Dr. Harloy Sliarp-
ley, director of the Harvard College
The celestial visitor is said to be
Tuttle's comet which was first dis-
covered,, in. 1790 by P. F. Mechain
at the Paris Observatory,- -After this,
it was lost until 1858 when C. W.
Tuttle, then at the Harvard Observa-
tory rediscovered it and/found that it
was^'p'enodic, returning to the neigh.-,
borhood of . the: earth every fourteen
years. Now it has returned for the
fifth time since his observation.
At present it is of J;he eleventh mag
nitud'e,"'"so""that it'can only be seen
with the aid of a telescope of moder-
ate power. It is in the constellation
of the Sextant below the bright star
Regulus, which is directly south
about:8 o'clock in tjhe evening. Regu-
lus is at the end of the handle,-of the
"Sickle," a group of stars in the con-
stellation of the Lion resembling- that
gardening implement. The comet is
moving toward the northeast so that
it is coming into better -position for
observation. As it is not" a very large
