The coats we are offering at
this time are all new, up-to-date
stock, and embrace this season’s
styles throughout. In point of
quality they have no superior.
The La Mode line is known the
country over, and has an enviable
reputation for superiority in style,
fit and durability.
If you have not bought your
coat and are needing one, here is
a great opportunity. Seventy-five
cents will do the work of a dollar.
Come and see these coats.

Whit is Horsepower?
Among many engineers there
arises discussion as to the incidents J
surrounding the origination of the |
term horsepower as applied to the ,
steam engine. The following quo-;
tation from “Farey on the Steam I
Engine,” published in 1827, will be
welcomed by many.
“The machinery in the great |
breweries and distilleries in London I
was then moved by the strength of
horses and the proprietors of those
establishments who were first to re-
quire Mr. Watt’s engines always
inquired what number of horses an
intended engine would be equal to.
“In consequence, Mr. Watt made
some experiments on the strong
horses employed by the brewers in
London, and found that a horse of
that kind, walking at the rate of
two and one-half miles per hour,
could draw 150 pounds avoirdupois
by means of a rope passing over a
pulley, so as to raise u p that
weight, with a vertical motion, at
the rate of 220 feet per minute.
This exertion of mechanical power
is equal to 33,000 pounds (or 528
cubic feet.) of water raised verti-
cally through a space of one foot
per minute and he denominated it
a horsepower, to serve for a measure
of the power exerted by his steam
This estimate is beyond the ca-
pacity of the average strong horse.
Smeaton and other early engineers
estimate that 22,000 pounds per
minute was more accurate.—Power.
