Swan Lake,-Man., Nov. G—One of
the most terrible fire tragedies in the
history of the province occurred,four
miles south of here at 5.30 this morning, resulting in-the death of Mr. and
Mrs. Edward Carey and six of their
family, together with Miss Mary Gillespie, the teacher of Lakeview school,
The victims perished in ihe destruction of the Carey home, which was destroyed in flames, the sleeping .occupants being unable to escape.
Son Discovers Fire.
Herbert Carey, aged 17, the only surviving member of thc family, and his
father, rose at about live o'clock, and
wi ,'j ihe lather remained in the kitchen to-kindle tlie fires, the son pro-
cedeed to the stables to teed the cattle and horses, it being then, quite
dark. The other members of the
household were still asleep. While,in
the stable the son heard cries which
he mistook at first for the howling of
a wolf. He went out and heard to
his horror cries from his father, and
saw that tho house was on fire. Run-'
njng to tlie house lie succeeded ' in
dragging tlio burning nihil from the
flames whicli by this time completely
enveloped him. Mr. Carey's clothes
were entirely burned from his body,
nothing, but his boots remaining, and
his son was also badly burned from
the attempts he had made lo rescue
him. Realizing that any attempt to
enter the house would be in vain, Herbert assisted his father to a place of
safety and theii. set off (P warn* the

of bone, the whaler Beluga, the first,
of the big whaling fleer, of this port
arrived yesterday.
The officeis and crew kill of ihe
narrow escape of the vessel from ll.c
ice-floeS in a driving storm on Aug.
8 during which one of the crew succumbed to cold and tlie others were
badly frost bitten.       "
The Beluga was among icebergs off
Unalaska when the storm struck her.1
Lashed to the wheel, Captain Porter
directed the craft so as to avoid the
huge bergs as they were driven toward" the Beluga by the gale.
The men were compelled to work
for hours in tlie cold, and one of the
crew, B. F. Ballinger, died of exposure.
Tho rest narrowly escaped perish-'
ing. During the storm ' the Beluga lost her maintop and mizzen
mast; but managed to retain her precious cargo.   -

The one fish'meilicine of which nipdv
era science thoroughly approves is'cod:
tlver.oil, anMhis, though In far less;
nauseous form than formerly, is swaj-
:o\ved in tons every year.
In old .days.,a. much wider use was
made of fish as "cures for various'ev'ilsr
and some* of these practices have survived'to the present day. , Some little
time ago a boy died of epilepsy in "a"
north Wales parish. The doctor, called
in too late, inquired if the deceased had
been given any. medicine. "Oh. yes,",
was the answer. "We caught a trout-
drowned it in new milk and gave it t«;

Eels are supposed to possess all kinds
of virtues,    Iu the dark ages of medicine a powder made of eels' liver was
considered an absolute specific for deaf- :
ness and was also employed in cases of ;
ague or fever," > A decoction of eels' fat ]
Is still  used  by   I •■,iicir peasants as a' •
remedy for falling li.-.ir
But the most valuable part of the eel,
according to popular superstition, is Its
skin. Many an »!d farmer wears" a
belt of eelskin as a preventive against
I'h'etunatlsni. ,(iiid sonic believe that a
garter made of the skin of this snakelike fish worn next to the human skin
as a preventive net only against' rheumatism',.' hut also against "sprains or
similar injuries.,
Another cure I'm- rlieumntisiu. whicli

is :i red herring. The herring being the
most plentiful of all the sea (ish, a
nuiiibi'r of superstitions have attached
themselves to it. For luck through the
ensuing year one must lie sure to enti
a herring ou New Year's day.
Fisliermen bcllcv" that each shonl Is
headed by a', king herring, which is
more than double as large as any of its
followers. They believe that when one
ofthe "kings" mines up in the not it
should be 'thrown overboard; otherwise
tin*' next day's fishing will be a failure.

per cent over the vote of 1904.   The
national vote has been brought up by
i the farmers and small villagers to at
'least 650,000 instead of the 409,000 of
the last "election," .when a number   of
■ ^..disgruntled  Democrats voted on the
Socialist ticket.   ,There were no   sore
heads from either of the old parties
"voting for Debs.    And yet the-steady,
solid growth of Socialism was never
more clearly shown than in these elec-
'tion returns. 7

snow flies ten months In tho year, was
not to be outdone by tha land of tobacco and night riders.     Duluth,   the
third city in Minnesota, trebled its So-

Strike   of   Typesetters   and   Printers

■' Cleveland, Nov. 10—The. strike of
the typesetters and printers on the
two local Hungarian newspapers,
the-Hungarian News and the Hungarian, Szadabsag has had the result
of producing one • of the most novel
publications ever issued here. Typewriting was the basis on.which the
editor of one of the papers was able
to produce his sheet. The typewritten sheets were photographed and
printing plates were made , from
them, y
The plates were then placed together in. consecutive order and from
these tho regular edition of the paper was printed.
No Shortage of Cars.
• Mr. Hill does not take a very optimistic view of the railroad sltui 'on.
This coun'ry Is away down and il
will tako ii several years to recover.
You don't feel it out hero because of
the fact that your resources aro agricultural, "but it la felt" in the oast.*
Thero will be no car shortage this
year.     For that matter thero, has "never boen— the shortage has always
been, in terminal facilities.     I don't
think there will be any new railroad
building this year.     We  will  carry
out the work on our Waterville   line
and eventually that will probably ' be
extended. up  the  Okanogan  but  not
at. present;    We will wait until there

about perfected. This wa3 back ln the
eighties, aud the plau was to get into
tlw building by means of the great
sewer which runs under and near the
treasury aud is known as the Fifteenth
street sewer aud which grows' larger
as it enters the Potomac about three-
Miuirtors of a mile from the White
P.iondfoot's plan, as developed after
his arrest, was to get Into tbe building,
truck the safes and place tho money
In large rubber bags and float them
down the sewer to the Potomac, where
his pals would be In waiting.   Theso
bugs were found in ills room whon he
•wns arrested, und secret service men
hnd often seen him walking along the
shores of the Potomac near where the
big   sower   empties.    This   sewer   Is
about nine feet in diameter where It
pusses the treasury.     A   man   could
easily   make   his   way   up the sower
through a stream of water which undor  normal  conditions is only about
twelve Indies deep. ' By entering the
tunnel or sewer nt the river'the journey to the treasury could.be made by
keeping a 'sharp   lookout.    When  the
niaii or mon In the sewer reached the
Fifteenth street sewer nothing would
sepai-ate them from the gold coin and"
bullion except about eighteen  feet of
.earth .nud'not too secure stone wall.
It  wns Broadfoot's scheme to dig. his
way  through  this obstruction "and to.
let tlie earth tioat or wash down the

man  more than'two  weeks,  working
only at night, to have made ah openiug

the exact location of tlie vaults; and
when he once.reached them he would,
liave Imd'no trouble in getting tlie gold'
coin aiid bullion.   It was .evidently'" his
purpose* to till'the'rubber bags with

One of the main issues of the recent
campaign, particularly as it affected
British Columbia,, was the keeping as
far as possible of Asiatics from, this
land. ■       /
Much was said by all'campaigners,
many causes were brought forth for
the existing conditions, speaker after
speaker proceeded to take his hearers
to the root of tho trouble, until tlie
average man was'forced to the con-,
elusion that'it was a,grievance, with
as many roots as ,the average poplar
In this instance,.as In others, we
have to deal with conditions as they
are, not as they ought,, to be, nor as
we would like to find them. Tho average workingman knows that lumber
camps and many sections of railroad
construction worlc, are'over-run by
Asiatics. ' Not only db'they invade
the labor market, but merchants and
caterers are called upon to face the
same problem, possibly in not the
same manner, but;- the Asiatic problem, while being a boom to mill men,
is a serious and jeopardizing influence
in other activities.       .
Non-employment and a withdrawal
of patronage would tend to alleviate
existing conditions. While not advocating an Asiatic boycott, we cannot help but conclude.that the words
of Ralph Spiith had the true ring.of
remedy- when he remarked "I • have
not yet spent a dime with an Asiatic."
The question is by no means ;settled, the regulation of such immigration is bound to be a burning question
for a long time, despite the assurances
of politicians to the contrary. But
remember, the solution Is within the
reach, to some measure at least, ■ of
every white resident of the province
of British Columbia.

Hamm, Westphalia, Germany, Nov.
12—The greatest mino disaster In a
great ninny years in Germany occurred this morning at the Radbod mine
three miles from here,        ' ''       *
There wns a heavy oxplosloh In the
mine about 4 a.m., and almost Immediately thereafter tho mine caught on
Ure.  •
Of 380 minors only six escaped without Injury, 35 were taken out badly in-
jured and 37 bodios wero brought,
out.   ,    .. '
Tho remaining 302 have boon given
lip for lost.
, Tho explosion destroyed ono of the
shafts which had to bo partly ropalred
before tho work.of roscuo could ho
begun. Heart rending scenes wero
onnclod ut tho mouth of tho mine as
tho dond mill wounded woro brought
to tho' surface,'
First reports Indicated that tho explosion wiih duo to nn explosion of
conl dust but lho HlnlcmontH of the
Injured men .ponder this Improbable.
Tho nnhiro of tlio explosion now up-
pp'ni'H lb' ho not vory clear.
The extraordinary scenes of'disorder in which Mr.' Victor Grayson fig-
uredtook place'on* Thursday.'and Friday of last week. , , ■"- •
,: At the close of questions1 on Thursday Mr. Grayson said:-"I rise to move
that this house'do immediately adjourn to consider a matter'of urgent
public importance, * namely the ques:
tion of unemployment."       -   •
The Speaker reminded Mr. Grayson
that his motion was out of "order.
Mr. Grayson: "Under the. circumstances I feel that (the cry of (unemployment are so great (people are
starving at this moment in the street)
that we must for once ignore these
(Loud laughter aud cries or 'Order.') - ,        .   ■,
The Speaker.said he was* afraid the
House was bound by tho' rules it had
itself made. - ,,
',' Mr. .Grayson: "Then 1 must '-et'use
personally to bo bound by any such
Loud cries of order wei*e*angrily renewed when the honorable member
declined to resume bis seat while
the speaker was standing. Mr. Grayson raised his voice above the'uproar
and shouted. "It is all very well to
cry out 'Order' for you who are well
fed."" 7 ,_ '-• -   '.'
Mr. Grayson' refused to sit down
and continued to discuss* with the
speaker the ruling of the latter.
The Speaker: Order, order. I have
given the honorable member with, I
think, every courtesy, (loud cheers)
an'explanation of the-circumstances
which" prevent him from raising the
Question at the present moment. . I
have pointed out that another occasion may arise and that he should wait
until that'day."      „     -
Mr. Grayson: "Yes, but In the immediate , future people are starving."
There-was great disorder.-,. Loud
cries of order and reiterated Injunctions from all parts of the house to sit
down came, from all quarters of the
house. Amidst the uproar the Speaker of the House ^called upon Mr.
Grayson to' withdraw.  • -: •,'.-,"",'• •-■ .
Mr. Grayosn: If you send your machinery of force.to remove me I am
willing,to*withd'raw..-..-• •"' ■ ,-,, "
"TK^Sp^lf^IfThTTliohp'faBl'e mem-
ber- will" not withdraw bt his own accord I must ask the sergeant at arms
to remove him.-' (Cheers.)
. ,Miv. Grayson: "I am willing to'.leave
because''I feel, degraded'.(uproar)',. I
have the unemployed mandate behind me, They are asking for some
urgent legislation and have been goaded into disorder. ■ I absolutely refuse
to be bullied into silence!"
Speaker:' Ser'geant-at-arms will you
kindly remove the honorable member?
Mr. Grayson: "I leave the house
with pleasure. Turning to his fellow
labor -members Mr. Grayson said: —
"Traitors to tliolr class who refuse to
stand by their cause,,
The sergeant" at arms' then advanced towards Mr, Grayson who at onco
arose and, proceeded to leave the as-
sombly. Halting at tho ,bnr ho faced
the speaker and glanced down both
sides of tho houso and shouted:— "I
leave this houso wllh iho greatest of
This was followed by more cries of
,  "A House of Murderers."
Mr. Grayson ngnln' figured |n an
ogroglotiH, exhibition In the house on
Friday whon (ho comnilttoo stage of
tho Licensing Hill was rosumod,. Immediately after tho division of 1111
amendment.Mr. Grayson rose and said
ho wished lo cull ntteutlon to tho fact

.This was. followed by loud cries of
order. -  '.,-.-   ;       , 7      . .. ".
' "Personally," retorted the member,
"I refuse to give order. I am.only a
single one in this house but.I defy it
to silence me."     ...
The chairman:. Order, order!-"..,'
Mr. "Grayson: "I will not give order.
I have, a large mandate behind me,
and I positively refuse to allow this
house to proceed any farther while I
am in it. .Shouting above the din,
the honorable members accused ; the
house "of callous indifference' and1 defiantly refused to" give'order. " There
was then a repetition ,of the! argument in which Mr. Giayson had engaged ^vith. the speaker on the previous day. *"     '    •
The Chairman:'The honorable member has refused to obey my instructions to sit down and I now ask him
to withdraw*from the house!
Mr. Grayson: I refuse to' withdraw
voluntarily until tho house shows an
Inclination to deal with this urgent
question. ,   ' ,
.The chairman: .Then,. Mr.- Victor
Grayson, I name you for disobeying
tho orders of the chair.
Mr. Grayson:— , "Sir, you .cannot
shame me. I will obstruct" the procedure of this house so long as it refuses to u-.tend.lo this measure."
The Prime. Minister then . moved
that Mr. Grayson be suspended from
the ho'use, which was immediately carried.
. :Mr. Grayson slowly made his way
to the door, and remarked to the assemblage:   ■
;■ "I leave this house feeling that i am
gaining dignity by so doing.'.. I hope
that other members will leave it' too.
It is a house of murderers,"
The honorable member then passed
through the doors and left the house.

and.was exceedingly Interesting. The
resident pastor of the chapel, Rev. J.
W. Boulton, we understand, is shortly
to be removed to Hosmer. Here is
an opportunity foi^ serious reflection.,
Tt hav long <.m felt that the ro.iuiri-,
ments of the Free church element in
Coal Creek-could he met by'tlie ministrations of one church, and that, to
b<S basedi on modified unsectarian
grounds. It is claimed that this
was the position until about a year
ago when the Presbyterians built and
opened their, present chapel.     There
■is ,very little difference between the
government and rites.of these, two
sects. The feeling between then1 in,
Coal Creek has beerivhotably -stamped
, with brotherly love and. irxie Christian.
^charity and.forbearance... Still,    the,
as their religious aspect nnd; every,
true member of a] church 'likes'?o see
his church self 'supporting aiid' ^entirely free and Independent, of outside
subsidies, Monoy is not.so plentiful
in Coal Creek as it was a year ago,'
and a working ninii 'cannot dive down
even to help his church' with that freedom which he could thon. Limited
space forbids going into detail on this
subject" but'It Is-hoped that what
has beon said on this subject will
serve ns n hint to tho Methodist conference and lo the Prosbytorian Synod:

" Unmistakable evidence that, the
Chinese have, reduced to ' a system
the business of enticing white girls
to frequent opium' dens both here,
and in, New Westminster, was presented at last night's meeting of the
Moral Reform association, and was
further borne out hy. subsequent investigation.
■ "Allegations were freely made and
seem to be verified by facts that the
Chinese owners of theso dens of unspeakable iniquity are not only on the
lookout for fresh recruits to become
inmates, but thoy take good care that
a girl once having placed herself in
their power is given little chance to
lead a better life.
. At. last night's meeting-of the Moral Reform association a well known
local lady who resides on Pendrill St.
and who has been interested in tlie
hioral reform' movement for some
lime, made a rather startling assert,
ion to Chairman II. H. Stevens' and
Secretary' Melekov. - This lady, who
believes in deeds as well as words in
moral reform worlc, was much interested in the case of.Belle Walker, a
white girl who was found in a Chinese opium joint some time ago and
sentenced to a term of imprisonment
on a vagrancy charge.-  '
Believing that this girh could ' be
reformed she made arrangements by
which Belle Walker was given employment at her home on Pendrill St.
until such time as' she could commu:
nicate with her "parents and find her
home. ;!      ■  ■-     -•
The day of Belle' Walker's liberat-
ion arrived, however"and she'„dld not
put in-an appearance.;. This led" to
Inquiries being made by the lady and
tt was found that the' proprietors of
the Chinese den which the girl had
previously visited, "had made irieffec-
with her during the* period which'she
spei/t in prison.' Tr'?.* had sum pro-
.Writs' of- 1'i-iilt,'■flo> i> 'i.'n.'l- sweet*.
and1 twice had asked '"permission" to
see''tho*giri."* 'But' tiie'matron"fflist-,
rated, all attempts"'to hold communication with her.
It is alleged that, the Chinese were
on watch for two days before the liberation of the girl, the men being
changed every few hours. However
Belle Walker did not come to the
home on Pendrill street which was
waiting for hor and to which she had
promised to go,' nor to the home of
another local lady who had mnde her
'iv similar offer. ' ''
., That thc, Chinese induced the girl
lo ngnln resume her lifo of shame
mny bo Judged from the' fact that information was secured by the local
polico that Belle Walker went ovor
lo Now Westminster nftor her liberation nnd becntno hn Inmate of a Chinese opium den there fully as notorious ns tho ono In which Bho was

before I was of no more consequence
than a servant, and now she takes
me for a spy—or a thief," the girl
thought. "I hope I don't look like
either; but then, T suppose, it is imprudent, of him to talk like that."
She remembered that > anions' other
things she had rend of John''Kenrith
was the, fact, thnt „he collected rare
jewels, his one piece of self-indulgence. Now- sh" had no longer a
doubt of the identity of this Mr. Kenrith.
"By-the way, vou'll find anothev

Lancashire mini, r-hnniriii*-: the srb-

"How very ve.'tatious!" exclaimed
Lndy Lnmbnrt*. . '
Her tone was so tremulous with
surprise, and annoyance that Elspeth
glanced up in' spite of herself.
Lady Hilary's "lovely face was scarlet, ah'd, tho'ueh her,,big violet eyes
were gazing "at the flying landscape.
Elspeth - was to feminine not to be
sure the girl felt the angry, suspi-
fcious flash her mother's eyes darted
nt her. The atmosphere of tho carriage had suddenly become mysteriously electric. '
"I thought lie was . a.- friend of
yours." said Konrith, innocently.
"Not nt nil. "T consider him a'most
undesirable youn" man," returned
Lady Lamburt. "T- hope, dear Mr.
Kenrith, if he t-ios to force himself
upon us at f.i*.-'tr;iin, as he is almost
sure to, thr.L \ou will hplp me to—
er—keep liini iir his place."
"What is his place?" Kenrith asked bluntly. "H'-'s an officer and a
gentleman, and a very irood fellow as
well as a bravo one:" That's my opinion of him.'
"Well cnoui'h, from, a man's point
of view," said Lady Lambart, more
gently.' "But I'm a woman, and-Hilary is a young rjirl, with ,no one .to
watch.over us: We must be careful.
Captain Oxford is dreadfully- pushing, and of course lie is, nobody." '
"So am I nobody."
"How like you to say that! But
you had a name, even before you
made it, whereas Oxford -Isn'-t .his
name; you know, or Laurence cither.
Really," „old Miss Laurence, who
adopted him-when he was a2.wreteh-

"Yes," said Elspeth, turning quickly, to. see, not a servant,- but-a pale-
faced, black-eyed, young man, very
well dressed in dark,blue serge..
"I am Mr. Grant, Mr. McGowan's
assistant," he announced, with his hat
off.   '"Mr.   McGowan  -wished nie  to
meet and.drive you back,.so.that on
,the  way   I- might   prepare  you 'for
'somo oi your duties, and save time."
'   "It will be very kind,of you," said
ihe jjirl.
"1 shall be glnd to help you in any
,vuy 1 can,", he'answered, and looking
up, Elspeth caught' a flash, in, the
dark, deepset eyes.which contradicted
the white coldness, of thc iace.
"I  wonder  whether  I'm  going to.
like Mr. Grant of not!" she thought.
,The look in his eyes told her that the
pale man wns not unaware of the fact
that'she was a pretty girl.   ■
The drive to Loehrain was a wild
and beautiful one, but Miss.Smith's
ouloginms hnd "-not half prepared her
for the magnificence-of'the place itself.   . -
■ "Why, it's like a great castle, and
has the air of being hundreds . and
hundreds of years old!" she exclaimed in intense admiration," when the
dogcart Mr. Grant drove hnd passed
through a .park, and brought them
Into sight of a huge, gray stone pile
on a slijrht grassy elevation. But
even before her companion replied,
she remembered how Mr. Kenrith had

'It's much "to his credit'that he's
cot on so "finely." said Kenrith:
'"In his profe.-.'-ion, yes; but of
course he could neve: dream of marrying, at all events, nny girl in the
station to which he seems to aspire,"
replied Lady Lnmbart.
Elspeth bei'nn to feel as if she had

to road: "What will they" do when
Miey see me at* I.c-clirain?" she.wondered. But she soon decided Uiiyt th*.

for Loehrain Castle Hydropathic Hotel was tlmt of u small town, popular
anions tourists, uiici so thoro was uo
reason why it should occur to lier
follow travelers that her dostination
was the same as theirs,' Loehrain
was livo or six inileH distant,' and
Elspeth saw her threo Into companions co away in a very smart motor

hotel. Thoro were, ovidontly a num*
bor of other jruiislB for the now. and
fashionable Hydro, and olijht or ton
ol thoir irinkl* and valets departed in
n bunoh in a hi*: motor omnibus.
Evorythins win ro quickly dono that
Elspoth had not timo to wondor what,
was to become of her, bbforo a voice
•,4-oko her name.'

will-be at. my,, disposal here, to answer letter's^as Mr. Grant is engaged
then, and can only, help: me in the
. evening. From. 10.30 until 12.30 I have
promised'your services to Mr.'Kenrith; who has arrived-..to-day; that is,
I wired him I would "have ah efficient
stenographer. ,to .work , with him,
which, was the principal reason why
I'wanted you-in such a hurry."
"Ilbeg.youT pardon, may I come
in?" asked a voice "at'the door, which
was slightly ajar./'It was a man's
voice, and spoke with a marked
American accent:   '"
"Come in, Mr. Trowbiidge,".replied
the manager politely, and a person of
striking appearance entered; a man
of thirty-two'-or-three,-perhaps,' tall,
clean-shaven, with' thick, fair hair
parted in the middle, dark brow's, and
black-lashed, narrow! yet. bold, gray
eyes. He was handsome, exceedingly
well dressed, with an air of wealth
and prosperity which was almost aggressive. His glance dwelt for a few
seconds with flattering admiration
upon shabby little Elspeth; yet the
girl was ungrateful .enough not to
like tho newcomer.
■ "So   sorry-to   interrupt,   but    I'm
badly in need • of your help, Mr. Mc-
' Gowari," said he, laughing in a
friendly wny. "I'm; n busy man, and
can't let everything slide, even up
here, while I'm taking a vacation.
My correspondence ,h:is run milc3
ahead of me. Can'you recommend
anybody in the 'neighborhood who
can write pretty well'from dictation?"
"This young lady will be able to
help you, I think. She lias just, come
to act as my secretary, but I can
spare lier for somo' hours a day to
guests of the hotol who vnnt her services."
"What an odd coincidence, and a
lucky one ior inc. Introduce me,
please," said Mr. Trowbridge; and the
stenographer should have been more
than ever flattered thus to be, inten-
• tion ally (ho doubt that it was intentionally) raised to a footing of social
equality  by. a young  and  handsome
■•man, evidently., a person of importance in the world.   •' - =. '
Mr. McGowan obeyed, and Mr.
Trowbridge made himself agreeable
to Miss Dean, looking at'her with an
expression which seemed-.to say,
"What a surprising, thing to find such
a pretty girl in your. position. I admire you immensely, andjwant you to
like me."
■ Still, Elspoth did,not like him.
"There's something that doesn't ring
true," she said to herself. And she
did not believe that it'.'.as a coincidence that Mr. Trowbridge'had happened to ask for a secretary, at the
very moment when she had arrived.
She had an idea that he had come to
Mr.'McGowan's door with some other-
object, that he had overheard a word
or two of the conversation, and had
taken his .cue from it. Still, even if
she were right ,in the-surmise she
had to' remind herself- there was tio
great harm in' what Mrl .Trowbridge
had done. Probably- the. man must
want help with his correspondence,
for she was not such a radiant beauty
.that he'should invent a'need solely
as an excuse for enjoying her society
for an hour each day. Such -things
might happen in novelettes, but not
in real life;" nnd  in any   caso    Mr.

Mr. Grant. smiled rather grimly.
"There are more gruesome stories
■told about Loehrain as it. used to bo

Sudden drops of temperature .are
■ impossible in the home heated by ,
hot water or steam. Stove fires
die out, hot' air furnances heat
unevenly, and the hot air switches
to other parts of the house leaving the remaining rooms, cold
and drafty. But with the Oxford
heating systems operated by
Hot Water and Steam
in connection with Oxford Radi-
atQi's an even, steady circulation
of healthful warmth is kept uo
throughout thc house. Eacli
. radiator is diffusing the same
temperature of heat in sufficient
quantities for thc size ofthe room.
The illustration below shows nn
Oxford Comfort "Hot Water
Boiler. The fire pois are accur*
ntely nnd scientifically propor-
tioncd to thc fire surfaces for
burning low grade fuel, and surprisingly economical results arc
nttninca thereby. The improved
pattern rocking nnd dumping
grates, case nssured for cleaning
firo surfaces, large fire nnd flue
doors nre some of the commendable features.
