A Valuable Invention.?Messrs. Ro?
bert F. Burnham ami Wm. F. Strong,
employees of the South Carolina Railroad
Company, have patented an invention
of great practical benefit. It consists of
a rear light for railroad cars, to be at?
tached either to the top or bottom of the
vehicle. It is an octagon-shaped appa?
ratus with colored glasses, attached to
the wheels of the car by gearing, which
revolves, showing different colors when
tho wheels are turning, and remains
stationary when they are at rest. The
value of the invention lies in the fact
that an engineer on the rear of a train
having tho new light can tell at a glance
whether the preceding train is moving
or standing still, because as long as the
train moves the light or rather the cover?
ing revolves, showjng different colors,
and thus enables him to judge whether
to follow or check up. The inventors
I are young Charlestoniuns.
