An tip to date skiddoo" train was
recently added to the schedule of tb'
New Haven railroad, and. although
President Melleii did not name it. be is
quoted as likely to adopt the suggestion
of the commercial travelers who chris
tened it when they saw it located on
the time table to start at T:"". a. in.,
says a New Haven special to the New
It l.t n New York express, and the
drummers ami New York commuters
who patronized it on Its maiden trip
said that it spelled "skiddoo" for them
to try to catch it. The train got a bad
start, for the baggage ear broke down
the first morning and had to lie re
placed by a new one before it could
get out of the station at New Haveiu
1 lie commercial travelers who ehris
tetii'd the train threaten to change tbe
r.iitne frMn "si, i, Moo'' to "hoodoo" if
tlii- performance indulged in on the
initial trip is repeated.
Side doors are to be a feature of a
new style il' coach to be introduced on
tlie I'ni n Pacific, says an Omaha cor
respondent of the Kansas City Star.
This style of car will le the most rad
ical departure from the end door sys
tem. iieil universally ever since rail
roads in America came into existence.
The door will be wider than those now
in use, and it is believed will form a
much quicker means of egress than a
door built at one end of the car.

motive power of the 1'iiion Pacific Is

Itie tirluinator of the idea to build pas
senger ears with side instead of end
doors. 1P believes that cars thus con
structed will be much sltoti'-'er and
more durable than the style now used
and that in case of wreck there will be
little danger of tbe coiiclies telesci-pin
each other. The car will have a small
passageway by which passengers may
ro from one coach to another, but this
will lie so arranged that it will not
weaken the end walls of the car.
Another feature of this coach is the
use of round instead of square win
dows. They will be somewhat smaller
than the square lights, tint less liable
to destruction I.y nccident. .V new

and the ear will present an appearance
so little in common with the ordinary
coach that it will at first hardly lie
recoiriii.ed as a passenger vehicle. The
new coach, which is being constructed
at the shops of the company in Kan
sas City, will be placed in service in
about sixty days. It will resemble thi
coaches iu use on the English lines.
The Xew Haven railroad recently
placed a rail locking device on the new
four tracked drawbridge over the IIou-
satonie river at NaiiKatuck Junction
that will render impossible the recur
rence of an accident similar to that on
the Atlantic City drawbridge last year,
says the Xew York Times.
This accident caused the experts
much study, and the new device is the
outcome. The rails of the new draw
bridge Instead of meeting with blunt
ends overlap each other fully a foot
and a half, allowing the car w heels to
run over them smoothly and without
the jar produced by the old time meth
od. P. ut the chief measure of safety Is
that there is a means of locking the
two ends of the rails by the use of a
bolt or plunger. On each rail is a hole,
and when the two rails are in their
proper position the towerman who
guards the block in which the bridge
Is situated by n movement of a lever
drives the bolt through the two holes,
which firmly fastens the rails In n
rigid and perfect alignment.
By means of a dial right nt hand the
towerman can tell if the bolt lias made
tlie movement . uecesaau to lock the
rails. Thus absolute safety is assured
before the signal Is given for the train
The Pennsylvania railroad has begun
planting hardy shrubs along Its tracks
in the Alleghany mountains at the
points where traffic has been delayed
by snow, says a Pittsburg special to
the New York World. Thousands of
shrubs will be set out, and it is ex
pected that the "snow fence" will be
in shape to serve its purpose by next
winter. The company tried building
rail fences, but it was too expensive.
J. V. Ieerus. general superintendent
of rollimr stock and motive power of
the New York Central lines, has under
examination the model of a device in
vented and patented by a brakeman in
the employ of the company designed to
warn train crews of hot journals when
trains are in motion, says tlie Cleve
land Plain Iiealer. Tbe device consists
of au attachment fastened to each
journal bearing and contains a fuse
which at a certain temperature well
Tiitliin the safety limit rings an alarm
in the car ami the trainman Is enabled
to cool the hot journal instantly.
Ieems may pass favorably upon the
inveution and have it installed.
TO SAVE HEATH HENS.
Plans to Stop Extinction of a Hundred
Specimens on Marthas Vineyard.
To prevent tlie total extinction of the
species of wild fowl known as the
heath hen, the only living specimens of
which in the world are now said to be
ou the island of Marthas Vineyard,
numbering only about 100, Ir. Ieorge
W. Field, chairman of the Massachu
setts fisheries and game commission,
has asked for an appropriation of
$2.oOO from the Massachusetts legisla
ture, says a Hoston dispatch to the
New York Times.
This expected appropriation, with
about $2.o0o already contributed by
public spirited citizens, is to lie used
to build fire stops around the breeding
place of the birds on the island and to
provide for maintaining artificial in
cubators. "The first settlers of the Atlantic
coasiqund.vUese,birds yejjr numerous
from Cape Ann to Virginia." sai.l Ir.
Pield. "They wen; especially numer
ous in Massachusetts. Rhode Island,
Connecticut, New York and New Jer
sey and became an important article of
food. Indiscriminate shooting, snaring;
and forest (ires led to their disappear
ance from the mainland. Those on Mar
thas Vineyard are decreasing yearly."
It is believed that the heath hen
could be made an important agent in
assisting in controlling insect pests on
farms if it could be restored to the
mainland. '1 he bird is similar to the
prairie chicken of the Mississippi val
ley, but differs from it slightly iu size,
iu color and in the shape of the pe
culiar neck feathers, which give it the
name of the pinnated grouse.
The project is strongly tirgtvl by Tr.
T. S. Palmer of the biological survey
of the department of agriculture at
Washington and also by William
iMitchci president of the National Au
dubon society, who has written that
the society stands ready to give finan
cial assistance if it is needed.
Lecturer's Joke on the President.
The lecturer on the "rublierncck" au
tomobile, which is doing a large busi
ness in Washington at this season, has
a new joke, says a Washington dis
patch to the New York Sun. lie got it
off recently before a load of visitors
while the machine was passing down
Executive alley, which runs between
the White House and the State. War
and Navy building south from Penn
sylvania avenue. "And on your left,
ladles and gentlemen, is the president's
ollice. Observe in the rear of the
structure we have the lawn tennis
court, where the president plays with
Ambassador Jessurand, Secretary (Jar
field, Mr. P.acon and other members of
the tennis cabinet. Frequently In
passing it is possible to see Mr. Roose
velt reaching out for a high ball."
Do Not Neglect the Children.
At this season of the year the first
unnatural looseness of a child's bowels
should have immediate attention. The
best thing that can be given is Cham
berlain's Colic, Colera and Diarrhoea
Remedy followed by castor oil as di
rected with each bottle of the remedy.
