A note of alarm concerning the gasoline, supply of tH country was sounded at the convention of the So-cletj' of Agricultural Kngtneers here today by Ir. Oscar K. Hran-sky of the Htundard Oil Company. He declared that production was not keeping pace with con- j sumption and that exhaustion of j ' the supply was drawing near. The tension was relieved, however, when it was calculated that the estimated remaining supply of crude oil, visible and Invisible, 7,629.000,000 liarreU in all. would last for 1S8 years at the 1916 rate of consumption of 55,000,000 barrels. Pr. Hransky said that next year there would be 3.000. 000 automo-bilea in operation in the I'nited States, or 7 50.000 more than this year. He estimated that Knstern oil fields are 76 per cent ex-haustod; mid-continental fields 50 per cent Texas fields 80 per cent snd the California fields 35 per cent exhausted. . . . .

Many of the produce markets at the foot of Franklin street are equipped with banana rooms. In using steel there are generally two properties required. One Is hardnss to prevent wear and the second Is softness to give toughness. These are opposite conditions. This necessitates the hardening of the surface which is exposed to the wear while the- Inside remains soft. This process Is called ease hardening. Success in the treatment depends upon the use of definite temperature kept uniform. Heretofore this work could be done only by an expensive and lorg drawn out process. However, the Introduction of fuel gas Into factory work has made this a simpVe process. A small factory can now do Its -own case hardening at a very low cost.
