OTHER TRAIN BREAKS RAIL
One that Is Wrecked Uom Nut do so Rail
road Van Saja.
In talking of the recent railroad
vreck near Denrock. a railroad man
in an interview explained how broken
rails cause such accidents. He says it
is net the train which breaks the rail
that is ditched. 'Often, when broken
rails are found by the seetii n men.
they shi.w that they have been broken
for Mime time and that many trains
have passed over them. Finally a train
conn's alonir and strikes the broken
piece in a certain way and the loose
end turns up. Then, in less than a
second, the train is in the ditch and
perhaps several ers.ns are killed. It
is one f the many duties of the sec
tion men to watch f.r broken rails.
When the section men find a broken
rail the first thinr they do is to drill
holes throught he two parts and bolt
en an angle iron, which will make it
s-fc until a new rail can be put in
place of the broken one. When the
an-Ie iron is on. the break is almost
as t-afe as any other joint in the road,
but a new rail is always put in place
of a broken cue at once.
The causes of rails breaking are
many. A slight flaw in the thin part of
the base may cause the rail to crack
clear through, -while the ball cf the
rail can be worn cut without causing
n break. Sometimes in driving spikes
the maul strikes the base of the rail
an.l cracks it. This will not cause any
trouble for a b ug time, and then some
day the crack will begin to lengthen
with every train that passe- until the
rail is in two parts.
BAN PUT ON FRIED ONIONS
Indiana Court Iecll that the Odor May
bt- a NnliHncf.
An onion odor has been stamped
with the disapproval of a court de
cision. The cooking of the odorifer
ous vegetable in an artistic neighbor
hood of In liana has been declared il
legal in the choicest terms of Hlack
stone. In pursuance i f the rights cf every
individual to the uninterrupted use
and enjoy ment f air and lip ht the
Indiana appellate court decided that
ii i person is at liberty to permit the
odors cf Hie onion indiscriminately to
permeate the atmosphere.
Afler days spent in deliberation the
learned judges affirmed the decision
of the circuit court at .New Castle,
which awarded the firm of Campbell
Pros. r that city damages against a
restaurant keeper name 1 Shrayer.
who persisted in frying onions at a'.!
hours i f the day and night.
According to the allegations in the
Irial court the defendant, who occu
pied the rooms above the store of
Campbell Pros., had many patrons
who made a practice of eating sirloin
teaks and fiied onions. While odors

lie presiimcii to travel siiywaru. i nc
cstimeiiy in lllis case showed they
ettled on account of their weight on
the persons below.
Then the trouble began. I he ow li
es of the store declared they person-
illy did n t object to the strong, nox
ious smells winch louiui ineir way m
them from above, but they alleged
the odors scented their stuck of val
uable silks. laces, and millinerv goods
ind nauseated their customers.
The defendant in answer declared
he onion a vegetable which is nece.--ary
to the happiness of mankind.
nn-l that there were certain prescrib-
I forms in which it could be pre
wired. Hi- fnrt her declared that sci
nec thus Tar had not been able to
nveiit any plan for the reduction of
nil. n odors or their confinement in
inv one room.
The court did not dispute the
llegation and did not attempt to pre
cri'.ie the legal limitations of the
idor. Although privately admitting
their fondness for the vegetable, the
members of the court declared the
onion habit of th New Castle resident
had become a nuisance.

DAILY PRACTICE OF FIRE DRILL
Among Pupils of Various BnildioK
In the City Report on
The monthly meeting of the hoard
of education was held last evening.
The committee on janitors and heat
ing reported to the board that the
htaiing plants of the Lincoln and high
schools had been inspected and that
they were in first class condition, ex
cept that the boilers in the Lincoln
building were set lower than was
necessary, and if raised to proper
height would save a epiantity of fuel
during the winter. The committee
recommended to the board that the
boilers be reset before another winter.
Superintendent H. H. Hayilen met
the ptincipals of the grade schools
last week and they reported that the
fire drill was being practiced daily and
that already the scholars were able to
leave the building much more rapidly
than at the ordinary dismissal.
