RAILWAY SIGNALS
Fireworks That Serve as Train
Protectors
CODE OF TORPEDO AND FUSEE
Maiugos These AudibU and Visible
Danger Signs Convey to the Engi
neer The Use of Pyrotechnics as
8Ig ncls In the Naval Service
Top J popV or perhaps s single
pop sharp and distinct like that of
giant firecracker heard not only on
the Fourth of July but on every day
In the year Sundays included What
did It mean And on almost any
night as 1 look out of my window I
ceothe edge of the wood or the fields
lighted up by red or yellow fireworks
Why tula strange Illumination
As all these queer happenings took
place on the railroad a few rods from
my house 1 made lnqulrlesof the rail
way officials and here are some inter
esting facts about the use of these
curious fireworks
The general superintendent of the
New York New Haven and Hartford
railroad explained as follows
Our rules provide fori the use of de
tonators commonly known as torpe
does asaudible signals and of fusees
as visible signnls
Thebe torpedoes are attached to
the top1ofthe rail on the engineers
side of the track by twosmall flex
ible metaP straps whlcV are easily
bent around the ball ofthe tall as
shown In the picture and hold the
torpedoes securely in place until ex
ploded by the first train passing over
thli trnrk
u
The explosion of one torpedo is a
signal to stop the explosion of two
not Mi than1200 feet npart Is a sig
nal to rvduce speedand look out for
a stop signal
The fusees are of similarfconstruc
tion to the well known Roman candle
used for fireworks celebrations ex
cept that they burn a steady flame
without explosions A sharp iron spike
at the bottom end will usually stick
In the ground or in the cross tie when
thrown from the rear of a train and
holds the fusee in an upright position
where it b more plainly visible
A fusee must be lighted and left
by the flagman whenever a train la
running on the time of another train
or behind Its own time and under
circumstances which call for sueh pro
tection
A fusee on or near the track burn
ing red must not be passed vThen
burnlngyellow the train may proceed
with caution when the way is seen and
known to be clear Standard fusees
burn red for three mintites and yel
low for seven minutes and can be Seen
for quite a distance
You will gather from the above
explanations that the red glare of a
flaming fuspe on or near the track
warns the approaching engineer that
a preceding train has passed over his
track less than three minutes ahead
of hlmT and under no circumstances
must he pass this signal while burning
red When the flame turns to yellow
he may proceed with caution only as
the way is seen and known to be
clear keeping In mind that when the
fusee jfhnnged from red to yellow he
was exactly th reeminutes behind a
precedingtrain which may have stop
ped within a short distance or may
be proceeding at an unusually slow
rateof speed
The superintendent of the Shore line
division another branch of the same
railroad gives this additional detail re
garding torpedoes
When a train stops upon the main
line and requires protection against
a following train the flagman goes back
a specified distance and places one tor
pedo He then continues a farther
distance back placing two torpedoes
As soon s the train be is protecting 13
readyto start the engineer blows a
specified whistle signal which is a
notice to the flagman to return to his
train On the way back he picks up
the one torpedo leaving two on the
rail to warn the engineer of an ap
proaching train that another train Is a
short distance ahead and to give the
flagman time to run back and get
aboardfof his own train
Of the use of fireworks as signals In
the navy the chief of the bureau of
construction and repair of the navy de
partment Washington makes tho fol
lowing statement
All modern ships are fitted with
electric signals and the use of buco
signals Is general in the naval service
In theNaiso of small vessels having no
eiectricinstallatlon andalso foruse In
cose ef the failure of the electric sig
nals the navy has a system of colored
stars in connection with rockets for
the purpose of signaling
These are In no sense the ordinary
commercial fireworks but are manu
factured by the service for naval use
exclusively
There are no photographs of this
system of signals for distribution The
apparatus consists of a specially de
nlgned pistol from which are fired car
tridges containing the colored stars
that are used In the service code

01 the Crusade of Southern Women
in Agriculture
In the American Magazine for
December there is an article
apout Marie Samuella Oromer
Miss Cromer by means of girls
tomato clubs has taught 3000
girls to become independent
through growing and putting up
vegetables The movement has
become national and is backed
up by the Department of Agri
culture A brief extract from
the article follows
Miss Cromers achievement
has risen to the dignity of na
tional movement fostered by
the United States Government
Within a year five Southern
States have taken up the grow
ing and canning of tomatoes
Her army has grown to 3000 girls
from the original fortysix In
May the General Education
Board promptly gave its check
for 25000 to meet the expense
of equipment and a propaganda
of national circularziation The
federal agricultural department
has scattered broadly through
the S6uth leaflets of instruction
and girls and women every
where are awake to the fact that
the divine gift of the soil was
not for man alone The crusade
is to be farreaching and will not
be confined to tomatoes when
the work progresses further
cucumbers and other garden
products will be given attention
The proper ways of cooking will
be taught for Miss Cromer has
been in New York observing the
principles of teaching Domestic
Science Southern homes will be
healthier wealthier and wiser
when Miss Cromers mission is
complete

About Faying Poll Taxes
A new ruling of the Attorney
General makes the payment of
poll taxes somewhat more diffi
cult A special deputy cannot
be appointed in towns of less
than 10000 population This
makes it necssary for a man liv
ing outside of larger cities to pay
his poll tax in person unless he
appoints some other man his
agent who must make affidavit
to the fact and call in person up
on the collector and pay the mon
ey Tax Collector Edgar Thom
as who was here Monday was
in receipt of a letter from the
Attorney General stating that
there was nothing in the law pro
hibiting making an offisial of a
bank an agent and doubtless ar
rangments will be perfected so
that our people may pay their
taxes to some member of our
banking force who can go to
