The Safest Seat. The frequency of
collisions on railroads has raised the ques
tion. Which is the place ot greatest st
onritv in a railroad train ? A railroad
lonrnal mvps the following as an answer
ft i verv well known that the car nearest
the engine is exposed to the least dust,
and that the rear car of a train is general
lv aafur than the front car. The safest is
probably the last car but one, in a train of
morp. than two cars : tnat is. mere are
ft-wer chances of accidents to this than
anv other. If it is a wav train, at moa
prate nneed. or anv train standing still, a
collision is possible from another train in
the rear, in which the last car receives the
first shock. Again the engine and the
front cars of a train will often run over a
broken rail, or a cow, or stone, without
detriment while the last car, having noth
ing to draw it in the line of the train, is
free to leave the track. Next to the front
car, the rear car is probably the most nn
safe in the train. The safest seat is pro
bable npar t.hp center of the last car but
one. "and in a very long train, in the cen
ters of the last two or three cars next to
Yf.ars Spent in Sleep. It is estimated
that if a man lives to be seventy-two years

he may be the remaining two-thirds. Let
us be charitable.

Busbee vs. Lewis. 1. An action to re
move a cloud upon title to land will not
be entertained merely to afford protective
relief, where the plaintiff is under no dis
ability to bring suit to test the question of
title. (Suggestion as to the manner of
plaintiffs redress, aud a review of authori
ties by Ruffin, J., to the effect that where
a valid legal objection is apparent upon
the face of proceedings, fcc, there is no
such cloud upon title as equity will remove
See preceding case.)
2. The tax title in this case is a nullity
unless all the requirements of the naked
power conferred by law upon the officer
selling the land were complied with.
