How"Big Business” gets the most out of the Coal Pile

F saving Coal means losing Power the ultimate economy is doubtful.
Getting more heat and power out of less Coal has been the problem

that the manufacturing interests of the Nation have had to solve. And in the solving of this problem there is a great lesson to individual coal users.

have supplied America's plants with both
heat insulations and maintenance materials
- to have been for 25 years one of the
champions for coal saving-to feel that our
commercial efforts to further the cause of
power-plant economy, have in a large sense
helped in national conservation.

For the devices and maintenance materials
which have conserved industrial coal piles
can often be applied, in some measure at
least, to smaller coal-saving problems.
For instance, the covering of heat-carrying
pipes or surfaces with scientifically designed
insulation is saving America's manufac-
turers millions of dollars' worth of heat
each year - coal power that would other-
wise be wasted.
Of equal importance, the loss from wear,
friction and leakage has been cut to a mini-
mum through the use of specialized
"packing” devices and materials that are
known to every engineer as maintenance
materials — necessities to efficient plant
operation.

This, from the author's preface, indicates that the new novel by the editor of Life is more on the lines of "Amos Judd," " The Pines of Lory"and " The Last American" than like his more recent novel, Pandora's Box." It is the somewhat romantic narrative of a woman and a reckless lover, whose control of waves of thought brings about exciting and significant happenings.

CRITICISM OF THE OUTLOOK'S CRITICISM This is to express my disappointment and regret at reading the current issue of your valued publication.

During the last Presidential campaign I carefully read your criticisms of the President. I was not always in sympathy with what you said, but I wanted the truth. And I still want it from folks who are in a position to give it to me.

Criticism is still right, provided there are good grounds for it. But what of the critic's grounds in the present case? Is The Outlook to be classed as “incompetent” because it did not know that we have half a million men in France ? Chagrined as I am over your “Knocker's Issue,” I would not want The Outlook to be suppressed as incompetent because it did not know some things, nor yet because it spoke without knowledge.

The German of the military class sincerely believes that democracy is impossible as a permanent form of government. He is doubtless pointing out to-day that the American people with their “ impossible rights” have forced the Administration to clivulge important military secrets.

Outlook, you have repeatedly said that we must meet Germany on her own grounds. You are right. Not that we must suppress criticism by the use of a firing squad, but that we must voluntarily relinquish it for the duration of the war, at least in cases where there is a probability that we are not in possession of all the facts.

Outlook, I read you carefully every week, and have done so for years. You have been very helpful to me. I value your weekly visits so highly that I am still hoping you may some day get rid of some vestigial prejudices such as I believe lie behind your recent pet with the Administration. Prejudice is the enemy of democracy.

(Rev.) CHARLES O. ShuGART. Wesley Methodist Church, South, Greenville, Texas, February 2, 1918.

One of the pleasantest bits of news about this delightful suite is—it is not expensive. You would not feel extravagant if you could enjoy its loveliness for only a few years. However, like every Berkey & Gay piece, this furniture is so excellently made that it may be treasured for a lifetime, for generations even.

ALSACE-LORRAINE I have just read your article on AlsaceLorraine, in which you discuss the proposal of the German Government “ to leave the disposition of Alsace-Lorraine to a plebiscite of inhabitants.” I agree with your conclusion, but not with all your arguinent. At the time the provinces of Alsace and Lorraine were taken by Germany from France they were a part of the territory of the French Republic, and could not of their own motion, without the consent of the French Republic, transfer their allegiance to Germany. When Germany took possession of the provinces, she did not consult the inhabitants. There is no reason in conscience or law why France should consult the inhabitants of Alsace and Lorraine as to whether she shall resume sovereignty over territory wrongfully and without consideration taken from her by Germany. The Southern States of the United States seceded from the Union and organized a Southern Confederacy. The United States Government denied the right of the Southern States to sevede, and, after the defeat of the army of the Confederacy, resumed its sovereignty over the Southern States without consulting the inhabitants. Why should not the French Republic follow the example of the United States?
