THE SMOKE NOISANCE. An invention, which Fetm3 destined in a remarkable degree to lead to the mitigation of what ii popularly known as the Emoke nuisance, was (pays the ' Sydney Mornine Herald' of May 20) on Saturday afternoon exhibited at work 011 board tho steamship Narrabeen in the presence of a considerable number of gentlt men who take an interest in scientific matters. The invention is known as Don's Smoke Preventor and Fuel Economizer, for which it is stated that no fewer than thirty-Bix patents have been obtained in various countries. The instrument is nothing more than an air injector fittid above the door of each furnace, and so contrived that it sucks the air from the atmosphere, anl delivers it with great force upon the surfaco of the fuel. The effect of this is to drive the atoms of oxygen into contact with the atoms of hydrogen and carbon tho instant they are born, the result being visible flame. Ity this chemical union not only ij the flow of volumes of dense smoke charged with smut prevented, but the furnace is kept at a much more even temperature than under ordinary conditions, and a saving of fuel is effected which is represented ai beirg so great th*t with the new smoke preventor in use less than 190 worth of cojl vill generate a volume of steam equal to that for tho production of which under ordinary conditions the consumption costs LIOO. Four of Don's injectors were on Saturday, one being applied to each furnace The Narr&been first proceeded ns far as Cockatoo Wand, thenco she made a tiip to Manly, and back to Circular Quay, tho timo occupied in steaming being two hours ard a-half and the veeFel doirg about ten knots an hour. From time to time during tho jyurney ta Manly via Cockatoo Island the stokers fired up, Rbundant evidence of this operation taking place being afforded by tho outburst of dense volumes of black smoke. Then, after the lapse of a few seconds, the signal was given for the injectors to be brought into use, the steam- valvts vvero opened, and the result was instantaneously apparent. The outflow of dense smoke was at onco cut off from the funnel, and thero succeeded it a flow < f curling vapnr, A few seconds later this vapor issued in so clear a condition that it strikingly resembled the vapar to be seen rising from the ground on a warm aummcr day. Meanwhile the color of the smoke carriod away by the wind had assumed the dimensions and appearance of a large black cloud.
