Aid. Cox Treferred to the
culty experienced by the surveyors
in setting the line for the new cement sidewalk along Richter Street.
He raised the question as to whether the cost of the second surveyor who had been engaged, and the
additional . expenses involved
should be met by the council or
paid by the original surveyor.
Mayor Sutherland said that owing
to the subdividing of the blocks
- along the street some of the pegs
had got out of line, and a dispute
had arisen as to where the. actual
line should be fixed. There had
.. been a difference between the two
surveyors of spme inches at one
end, but they had eventually come
to "an agreement
Aid. Leckie thought the. city was
quite justified in making the additional expenditure so as to be quite
sure of their ground.
The Mayor said that both surveyors had recommended the establishing of certain corners in the
' city to serve fixed and definite
- starting points in the laying out of
sidewalks etc. The points should
be located and posts put in. Many
of the old stakes were gone and
others doubtful, and theie would
very likely be trouble in the future
if the matter was neglected.
Messrs W. J. and E. Clement attended with plans of their subdivision amended according to the
suggestion of the council some time
ago. As the plan was now satisfactory, a motion was passed that
it be accepted by the council.
A resolution was also passed,
"that the action of the mayor and
treasurer in borrowing from the
Bank of Montreal the sum of $3,000
to meet the cost of local improve"
. ment works, be approved by the
council." "
The following was also passed :•
" That the mayor and treasurer be
authorised, to borrow from the
Bank of Montreal from tine to time
such sums as may be necessary to
pay for works of construction under
By-laws 90.91, 92,94,95, and 96."
The mayor reported that he had
sent an invitation in the name of
the City to the Western Canada
Irrigation Association to hold its
next annual convention at Kelowna.
at Calgary, and had been accepted
Mayor Sutherland mentioned
that a preliminary report had been
received from the engineer engaged to look into the question of
a sewerage system for the city. It
was a most comprehensive report
and went thoroughly into the matter. There was one point however
upon which it had been necessary
to write, for further information be-
fore'bringing the matter before the
council. The engineer had apparently taken it for granted, that owing to the high price of land available the city would not want to
consider the disposal of the sewage
by means of a sewage farm. So
long as they were going into the
question they should have full information on all the different systems.
Aid. Cox suggested that people
on the outskirts of the city^ should
be encouraged to build septic tanks.
Most people had land enough
arid the.tanks could be installed at
comparatively small cost.
A letter was read from the C. P.
R., asking if the council would consent to the extension of their tracks
across Cawston avenue, if the company decided;upon extending the
track which now serves the Kelowna Ca/ining Co., and the Farmer's Exchange.
By resolution it was decided to
give the permission asked for.
A petition Was read from the
owners of property on Fuller Ave.
requesting the council to open up
and grade that street. Referred to
the Board ol Works.
The following letter was read
from the Kelowna Canning Co.:-.
City of Kelowna,
Gentlemen: ■   -
, We beg to iriake application
,' for a lease for 21 years of-the
land in front of the present
cannery site, 100 feet,north
from the property held by the
C. P. R. on the foreshore. The
use of the land wou'd be exclusively for the further deve-
lopement'of the canning industry.
Thanking you in anticipation
of an early reply.
Yours faithfully,
KELOWNA CANNING Co. Ltd.
The Mayor said that the city had
grant of the foreshore extending to
to the north side of Cawston Ave.,
and the Canning Co. wished to
lease two-thirds of this.
It was considered prudent to take
time to eonsiuer tuc request. ~ine
mayor mentioned that in all probability the Great Northern Railway
would be wanting a site in Kelowna inside of eighteen months,
and sufficient of the foreshore
should be reserved for them.
The meeting then adjourned.
The following conservative platform has been given out by Mr.
R. L. Borden at the commencement of his campaign : —
1. A thorough reorganization of
the method by which public expenditure is supervised. Increase
in what is known as ordinary controllable expenditure from $21,-
500,000 in 1896 to nearly $74,-
000,000 in 19/1 is proof of extravagance beyond any possible
defence.
2. Granting ,of, their natural resources to the" prairie provinces.  _
3. Construction of the Hudson
Bay Railway and its operation by
an independent commission.
4. Control and operation by the
state of terminal elevators.
5. Necessary encouragement for
the establishing and carrying on of
a chilled meat industry.
6. Establishment of a permanent
tariff commission.
7. Granting of substantial assistance towards the improvement of
our public highways.
8. Extension of free rural mail
delivery.
9. Extension of civil service
reform.
10. Granting of liberal assistance
to the provinces for the purpose
of supplementing and extending
the work of agricultural education
and. for the improvement- bf agriculture.
II.. A cbuise of policy and administration which will maintain
independent and unimpaired control of our own affairs by the
Parliament of Canada, a policy
which, while affording no just cause
of complaint to any foreign nation,
will find its highest ideal in the
autonomous development of Canada as a nation within the British
Empire.;
Conservative Association Reorganized
British Railway Strike
Ended
Government Assists in Settlement of Dispute
Railways and Lumbermen
Share Forest Fire Costs
At present lumbermen and railway companies in British Columbia
pay a portion of the cost of fighting fires on their property, and in
the future, as the result of a conference between Hon. W. R. Ross,
minister of lands, and other government officials, and a number of
prominent lumbermen and railway
officials' of East Kootenay, they
will contribute to the cost of preventing the outbreak of forest fires,
to which end the chief efforts of
the government are now being
directed. A special committee of
nine has been appointed to direct
the work. On the committee are
representatives of the government,
the lumbermen and the railways.
Mrs. J. Hawkin and her daughter
of Truro, N.S., mother and sister of
J. N. Thompson, are visiting for a
few weeks.
The railway strike which for a
few days tied up business throughout Britain, arid threatened more
than one city with starvation, has
been settled. After a late conference Saturday evening at the Board
of Trade offices it waa announced
that the men would return to work
immediately. Already troops are
being withdrawn from railway property, and the old schedules are
being resumed.
A joint comnittee of five members composed of two representatives of the railway companies,
two of the men, and a non-partisan
chairman, appointed on Tuesday
to investigate the workings of the
Conciliation Act of 1907, which
the men claim is the root of all
their grievances.
A conservative estimate places
the cost to the community for the
railway strike last week at $10,000-
000, exclusive of the decreased
profits of the companies which will
amount to many thousands. Work
at the London docks is in full sway
again for the first time in three
weeks, but it will be some time
before the congestion of freight is
relieved.
The cabinet had been working
night and day since the strike was
threatened, to arrange a compromise between the railway
managers and their employees.
Most of the credit for the ultimate
success of their efforts appears to
rest upon the shoulders of David
Lloyd-George, chancellor of the
exchequer, who, in his statements
to parliament and in an interview
with the managers and the men,
worked for. conciliation when all
others of the interested parties
seemed tb have given it up.
A meeting of the Liberal-Conservative Association was held in
Raymer's Hall last Monday evening. Mr. Raymer, the president,
took the chair.
On the meeting being called to
order, Mr. Raymer briefly announced the object of the gathering. It was, he said, in the first
place to receive the report of the
delegates who had attended the
nomination convention at Kamloops last Thursday. As one of
{he delegates he could himself
&ive the result of the convention.
<He had attended every convention
since coming to the valley a good
many years ago, but he could
truthfully say he had never been to
one which had been so strikingly
unanimous in . its support of a
candidate as last Thursday's meeting had been in nominating Mr.
Martin Burrell. When Mr. Burrell's
name was announced as the candidate the whole of the delegates
had stood up as one man and expressed their approval with loud
cheers. No other name was mentioned. There was no doubt as to
what would be the result of the
election ; but what the conservative
party wanted to do was to return
Mr. Burrell with a larger majority
than ever.
To carry on the work locally as
it should be carried on, continued
the chairman,the association should
be properly organized. They were
unfortunate that night in the fact
that several of their leading members happened to be out of town.
It was questionable, however,
whether any advantage would be
gained; by delaying the reorganization. The time before the election,
was short and the sooner they had
the association into definite working order the better.
It was unanimously resolved to
proceed with- the election of
officers and the following were
chosen:—
President.—H. W. Raymer. .
Vice-Pres. —-R. A. Copeland.
Secretary.—R. F. Morrison.
As8i8t.-Sec.~J. W. Jones.
Treasurer.—J* A. Bigger.
Executive Com.—J. H. Baillie,
M. Hereron,-W. T. Patterson, Leslie
Dilworth, A. W. Dalgleish, T. G.
Speer, E. Wilkinson, George- Rowcliffe.
On retiring from the'' post of
secretary Mr. E. Weddell was
vacating a position which he had
held for a number of years. As
he was shortly leaving town, however, it, was impossible for him to
continue in that office. He however kindly consented to act in the
capacity of assistant secretary for
a few weeks in the place of Mr.
W. -!«_«■_» .-who   has   not   yet

returned from his tour in Europe.
A suggestion was made that the
association secure a Toom to be
U3ed as a committee-room until
after the election. Mr. H. W.
Raymer generously offered the
free use of a room in his building
for the purpose which offer was
accepted. The selection of a caretaker waa left with the executive
committee.
A Big Lumber Order
One of the largest orders for
lumber placed on the Pacific coast
has been given to the Victoria
Lumber Manufacturing Company
of Chemainus by the Grand Trunk
Pacific company. The transcontinental railroad has placed an
order with the mill for 10,000,000
feet of lumber, mostly heavy timbers, bridge material, etc., for delivery in Manitoba for construction
work east of Winnipeg.
Rece ves Unanimous Support
of Delegates
Although there was only one
name before the Conservative Convention held in Kamloops last
Thursday, there was a large muster
of delegates from all parts of Yale-
Cariboo,/>ver two hundred being
present. The delegates from Kelowna were Messrs. H. W. Raymer,
R. A. Copeland, W. T. Patterson,
M. Hereron and J. A. Bigger.
Hon.. P. Ellison, the president of
the .-. Yale-Cariboo Conservative
Associaiation was in the chair and
after a few introductory remarks
commenting on the fact that there
was only one name to go before
the convention, he tendered the
-unanimous nomination to Martin
Burrell. He called attention to the
fact that Mr. Burrell had to the entire satisfaction of all Conservatives
represented- during the last parliament the largest and most richly
endowed by nature of any of the
Canadian constituencies. Had the
government been fair to the west
a redistribution bill would have
been brought down and the district now included in Yale-Cariboo
would have two or three members.
We only had one, but he thought
that one was the best we could
possibly have.
Mr. Burrell, in accepting the
nomination was most enthusiastically received, his advent on the
platform being greeted with prolonged cheers. He feelingly
thanked the convention for its
marked-expressions of good will
and'confidence, and said that it
was just such occasions which gave
a man the heart to put up with all
the trrubles which political life laid
upon a man's shoulders. More
than this, the enthusiasm displayed
and the confidence expressed, told
him as nothing else could, how
strongly the Conservative party felt
upon the great issues now before
the people. He agreed With the
chairman in his remarks about the
riding of Yale-Cariboo. Its size,
its variety of resources, and its
political wealth were compared by
the speaker with some of the pocket handkerchief consistuencies in
other parts of Canada, and he said
that he felt it unreasonable that so
large a territory, almost an empire
in itself, should be represented by
only one man. He-felt the responsibility as well as the honor in doing so. He did not consider the
present enthusiasm as being in any
personal.it was national and showed
that Yale-Cariboo would do the
right thing on September 21. He

Carsorso's Horse Wins
in Match Race
A match race around which centred no little interest locally was
run off this afternoon at the race
track between Fuller's "DonE"
and Casorso Bros.' " Royal King"
over the half mile for a purse of
$200.
Considering that no public announcement had been made of the
race, quite a large number of
people had gathered at the Recreation Grounds. The controversy
which arisen as to the correctness
of the judges' decision at the last
match race some weeks ago, and
the at any rate unsatisfactory nature
of the test, lent added zest to this
afternoon's contest. It was the
determination of all concerned
that there should be no hitch about
the race from start to finish, but
that it should bi a fair trial of ppeed
between the two horses. " Wid "
Thompson, as usual, rode Fuller's
horse, " Royal King's" jockey being
P. R. Sautelle. an experienced rider
brought in for the occasion from
Calgary.
The utmost care was used in the
preliminaries of weighing in  etc.
At length all was ready for the
first heat, and the horses got away
with very little trouble in fineshape.
The greatest excitement prevailed
as the two ran practically neck and
neck throughout the whole course.
On the home stretch, however,
"Royal King "-.began to draw
ahead, and a_ final spurt as the
jockey dug in his spurs; brought
him under the wire first by about
two lengths.
After a wait of about fifty minutes the . second . heat was run.
Here again a capital start was made
though,;"Royal King* took' some "
litde persuading. The result was
was plain after the first few hun-
dreh yards, "Royal King" drawing
ahead considerably and keeping
the lead until the end of the race.

of this city. before   passing   a   Redistribution
tion, which had been a deferred
one, and said that he could not
help feeling confident of the result this time. He accepted the
nomination and would leave no
stone unturned to merit the confidence the convention had placed
in him.
The resolution committee submitted the following which were

MARINE MOTORS
A boat equipped with a Roberts motor is a continual
source of pleasure.    None of those irritating worries
which, in spite of your experience with other makes,
are not inseparable from motor-boat running.
.    A Feu) Points   .
The Aero-Lite is lighter in weight without any
sacrifice of stability. It is made of a special alloy,
lighter than aluminum and stronger than cast iron,
and with better wearing qualities than either iron
or steel.

Progress 0? Temprance Work
In B. C.
The temperance movement in
British Columbia is ipaking pro.
gress notwithstanding the fact that
so many forces are in opposition to
Local Option and prohibition. During the last fifty years the churches..
of several denominations have done
considerable temperance work.and
during the last twenty-seven ye&re
the W. C. T. U. have worked away
in the various'departments of their
excellent organization. The Dominion Alliance branch, along with
other organizations, have done
work in the past which has not
been in vain. The I. O. G. T. have
about twelve hundred members inthe province and many of their
lodges are quite {active. The R. T.
of T. have about seven hundred
members and are doing their
best to ht-lp along the temperance
work. The sons-of temperance have
one iodge in Vancouver. These
temperance organizations are composed of strong and good men and
women,
The Local Option League -was
formed in the fall of 1908. Its first
effort waa to get a petition of, 35,-
000- signatures abd present the
same to the Government, asking for
a Local Option law. This was
considered insufficient by the Gov-
eijiment and.' though a plebiscite,
taken in November, 1909, gave us
a total vote ia favor of a Local
Option lawof~c«er. 32,000 and a
majority of 3,700, this majority was
about 500 votes less than demanded by the Government, so thatno
Local Option law wris ehacted by
tKe Legislature; the demand being
equal to Half of all the number of
votes cast for candidates. A most
unfair and un-British demand.
One result,' however, Was the
passing of-a hew Liquor Act,, which
ia, a great improvement on the past;
ThetTthe temperance people-decided to get the -'Canada Temperance
'Act" amended to fit.British Columbia. This being'done by the Federal .Government,, a, vote was tqken
thereon in the cities of Chilliwack
tmd f^fmeejRypiert, the *e«iMt being
a. loit vote:ih each place, brought
about by misrepresentation and
the introduction of party politics.

The Menace ofthe
Codling Moth
AU orchardists, and especially
those who have visited the badly
infested districts of the East, are
aware of the terrible menace to
the apple industry presented by
the codling moth. Happily fruitgrowers in this province have not
as yet this handicap to contend
with, thanks to the vigorous system
of inspection of everything likely
to carry the infection.
An interesting account was given
recently by Mr. Thomas Cunningham, provincial fruit inspector, of
the determined mannerin which the
B.C. Government met- an accidental introduction of the pest
into the Kamloops district. Mr.
Cunningham says : " The codling
moth is now fortunately no more in
B.C."
" Some years   ago   a  Christmas
present   of   Ontario   apples   was
sent out to some railway men-at
Kamloops.     This was not a shipment   for   commercial    purposes,
and so was ..not inspected.    After
the   apples   had   been ' used  ther
barrels, always dangerous, for harbouring the larvae of the codling
moth, were thrown outdoors.   The
moths   hatched   out   and   quickly
found  food   and   condition   quite
favourable   for    reproduction,   so
that  within a year or two   many
fruit  trees  of   Kamloops became
badly infested.    We first  were in
doubt of the identity of  the pest,
and it was not until after several
of them were artifically bred that
we fully realized the gravity of the
infestation.    We began by spraying with  arsenical  spraying   mixtures, paris green, London purple
and finally arsenate of lead. Banding   the   trees   for   trapping   the
larvae was  also  resorted  to, and
whilst we did have a measure of
success, we barely prevented   the
infection from spreading.
" In one .orchard^, found . infect
tion  had  been  carried   there  by
using old fruit boxes from the
Kamloops stores. I agreed with
the owner of the orchard to have
every bit of fruit in the orchard
gathered and destroyed, cutting off
the supply of food for the larvae.
We never found the slightest, trace,
of infection afterwards. This experiment pointed the way to deal
with Kamloops orchards, and I
advised the government to repeat
the experiment that I had tested in
the Schafer orchard, namely, the
purchase of all the apples, pears,
crabs and quince growing in Kamloops last season. This was agreed
to, and when the fruit had attained
one-third of its size 1 had Mr.
Coatham of Chilliwack, a reliable
horticulturist, take charge of the
picking of the fruit, and in two
weeks the fruit in Kamloops was
all cremated at the burner of the
Kamloops Sawmill Company.
" Subsequent inspection at Kamloops during the season failed to
disclose any larvae. This has been
proved beyond doubt, and I a...
enabled now to give Kamloops a
clean bill of health."

Sir Wilfrid Tired of Politics
Speaking at Three Rivers Sir
Wilfrid Laurier forecasts his retirement from politics. He asked what
political life had further . to offer
him and said that: for twenty years
he had not known what rest was.
His opponents might defeat him
but they.could not take away the
love of those who worked with
him or the prosperity of the last
20 years which bore testimony to
the success of his rule.

- Provincial and General News -
Dr. K. C. McDonald,, formerly a
dentist of Vernon, was selected by
the Liberals at the nomination Convention in Kamloops last week to
carry their banner at the coming
election in Yale-Cariboo.
The Liberal candidate is well
known throughout the district. In
I 907 he was candidate for provincial honors, running against Hon.
Price Ellison. At the last general
election he was returning officer
for the Yale-Cariboo district, and

Chilliwack is having trouble
with its telephone service. Three
telephone operators quit their jobs
in the local exchange, following
the posting of a notice in the office
by officers of the company:
" Loafers; your presence will not
be tolerated in this office during
business hours. By order of the'
board of directors." The girls declare they have not been in the
habit of entertaining loafers, and
that the action of the directors
was' entirely unwarranted. Upon
the refusal of the management to
remove the sign they pinned on
their bonnets and walked out,
necessitating the placing of linemen on the switchboard. Neither
the directors nor the striking operators will recede from their position
and the public has to tolerate the
situation.

HISTORIC  LOVING CUP.
Owned in Turn by Goldsmith, Garrick,
A Dr. Johnson and Burke.
The fuiuous literary society of Loudon called the Savage club has traditional connection with Will's coffeehouse and the Mermaid tavern of early days. The reader of Mr. Watson's
volume of history and anecdote relat.
lug to the club will come across in its
pages incidental mention of things that
recall names that are famous in our
literature. How rich in associations a
simple drinking cup may become is
shown by the following:
Iu 1902 there was brought to the
club a most remarkable relic of which
the lord mayor of Loudon had recently
obtained possession. This was a loving cup holding a pint or a little more
which, as certain inscriptions testified,
was at one time the property of Oliver
Goldsmith. On Goldsmith's death it
passed into the hands of David Garrick and thence to tho possession of
one of the literary and artistic clubs
of the day.
Then after an interval it passed into
Dr. Johnson's hands, for one of the inscriptions engraved on its silver rim
records that it was presented to Burke
by his friend Samuel Johnson, doctor
of letters, as a memento of Johnson's
visit to Beaconstield, which was
Burke's home. The date of the presentation was 1779, Ave years after the
death of Goldsmith and Ave before the
death of Johnson.
ESSEN'S BAKERY.
Said to Be the Largest Breadmaking
Concern In the World.
The largest bakery iu the world is
located in Essen, Prussia, the home of
the great Krupp gun factory. It is a
vast building, in which seventy workmen, divided into two shifts, work
night nnd day. Everything is done by
machinery, says the Loudon Post. A
screw turns unceasingly a kneading
trough, into which are poured some
water and ten sacks of flour of 200
pounds each.
This machine makes about 40,000
pounds of bread each day. in the shape
of 2E>,000 small loaves aud 2:1,000 large
loaves, produced by 230 sacks of flour
of 200 pounds each. All the operations
of breadmaking are performed in this
colossal bakery. The wheat arrives
there, is-cleaned, ground and brought
automatically to the kneading trough
by a series of rising and descending
pipes.
There are thirty-six double ovens,
and the workmen who watch over the
bakiug of the bread earn from 8 to
10 cents an hour, making an average
of 90 ceuts a day for eleven hours
on duty. They have coffee and bread
free; also the use of a bathroom, for
they are required to keep themselves
spotlessly clean and must wash.their
hands eight times a day. ~
The Brown Rat.
The best way to make a good clearance of rats is to turn a cobra into the
place they inhabit. It will clear them
out in an amazingly short time. But
most people prefer the rats. Were it
not for cats, owls, weasels aud a few
other animals in combination witb
man, in a short time the whole country would be one vast raltery, for the
rate at which these animals increase
Is stupendous. They are without
doubt one of the worst forms of vermin, but they possess one good quality.
In a tight corner few animals are more
courageous than the brown rat. Rats
hard pressed have been known to fly
at a man's throat. Two or three, secure
in a little fortress with a small opening only large enough for one at a
time to come in nnd go out, will defy a
score.of ferrets, and if oue ferret with
more courage than his brothers does
venture to enter the lions' den he
must look well to himself or he will
never come out alive.—Loudon Globe.
Organ Pipes..
The names of the different parts of
an organ pipe are interesting. For instance, the air is forced iu through a
hole in the pointed toe of the pipe,
goes through the flue (the slit cut in
the side) and strikes the lip. In some
cases it then bits the beard (a metal
cylinder attached just below the opening) and rebounds against the lip, producing a double vibration. There is
also a tongue, and the tipper part is
called tbe barrel.—Exchange.
Faultfinding.
Often the most unhappy people are
those who have lost the art of admiration and become experts In the art of
faultfinding. Beauty is everywhere,
but they see It not because of the
flaws somewhere below It. Faultfinders should turn their magnifying
glasses upon themselves and there discover why they are not loved.
Conversation.
Conversation warms the mind, enlivens tbe imagination and is continually
starting fresh game, which is Immediately pursued and taken and which
would never have occurred in the duller intercourse of epistolary correspondence.—Franklin.  .
Dead Authors.
Tbe society of dead authors has thia
advantage over that of living men—
they neverjlatter us to our faces, or
slander us behind our backs, or intrude
upon our privacy, or quit tbelr shelve*
until "we take them down.—Oolton.
What They're Not Doing.

OLD  TIME  LIBRARIANS.
r.
8pofford, Whitney and  Butler Made a
Famous Trio.
With Ainsworth Uaud Spofford, for
fifty years librarian of cougress, who
died  in   1908;..the  passing of   Went- j
worth Sanborn Butler, for more than i
fifty years Librarian of the New York \
Society library, and of James Lyma'u !
Whitney, for forty years with the Bos- ;
ton Public library, a triumvirate of old j
school librarians has gone.   The envi- ;
ronment,  conditions  and  methods  of !
administration have changed,    lu the •
fifties,  before  the days of elaborate j
catalogues, with subjects grouped and
classified, the librarian was popularly
credited with carrying all the knowledge of the universe in his head, ready
to impart to all comers on request.
Mr. Spofford and Mr. Butler were
both born in New Hampshire and Mr.
Whitney in Northampton, Mass., about
a decade later. Amherst, Dartmouth
aud Yale contributed to their culture,
and New England and the country
gave them their early vigor and resourcefulness.
Mr. Butler knew the beaus and the
belles of New York for three generations. William Culleu Bryant, Guliau
O. Verplanck, Fitz-Greene Halleck and
Evert O. Duyckinck drew upon his various stores of knowledge. The great
jurists and statesmen William M.
Evarts, David Dudley Field, Hamilton
Fish, John Jay and Samuel J. Tilden
were intimate friends and constant visitors at the society library.—New York

ROTARY SN0WPL0WS.
These Powerful Machines Are as Big
as Freight Cars.
The snowplow is a huge machine, as
big as a freight car, and built of steel.
On the forward end is a monster
wheel with powerful blades of steel
looking like au overgrown electric fan
so arranged that their angles can be
changed. This wheel, which is perpendicular to the track and revolves at
right angles to it,-is inclosed In a casing or drum, also of steel and with
sharp steel edges. The top of the
drum is supplied with a pipe or chute.
Inside the snowplow is a steo.m engine, which drives this huge fan whee!
at from 100 to 250 revolutions every
minute. Below the body of the plow
near the track is an ice cutter to clear
the rails of ice before the wheels go
over them and a "flanger," as it is called, designed to scrape the bulk of the
snow off the track itself after the fan
has whittled the snow bank away and
thrown the most of it to one side. Be-
hiud the snowplow are coupled from
one to three or even more powerful
engines, and behind these a car.
On the car are many men with shovels, for, despite its enormous power
and its ability to toss tons of snow
about as you might toss a shovelful,
even the rotary gets stuck at times
and has to be ignominiously dug out:
