How a western line solves the problem of fast passenger service on. light-
traffic lines. "
St. Paul. Minn.. July 14. When
the passenger travel is light anil the
. revenues moderate and patrons pf
branch lines ask for modern and fast
service, what is a railway to do?
The Northern Pacific has solved
the problem by adopting the "tor
pedo motor" in place of trains hauled
by seam locomotives, and has placed
one of the new type of passenger car
riers in service on a Minnesota-Wisconsin
branch where the passenger
service is light. - but made up of a
particular class of people who want
the best and insist on having it. The
new car is gasoline driven, and un
der one roof houses passenger ac
commodations, space for baggage same as a railway train
and mail, anil its own power plant.
Casoline engines . drive it and the
tests, made on a stretch of suburban
track between St. Paul and White
Bear lake showed a speed of a mile
The new car has an odd appear
ance and is unique in its general de
sign. The forward end is projected
like the prow of a ship, and offers
little resistance to the wind. There
are few projecting ventilators or oth
er devices to retard speed. The en
gineer has his station in the
forward end of the car, which
is controlled by air brakes the
The rear1 portion of the car is fit
ted up handsomely for passenger ae-
lommodations and forward of the
pasenger compartment is a space for
baggage and mails. -
Exhaustive tests show that the car
is under perfect control, is capable of
a maximum speed greater than is
ever required in branch line service
and is very economical in the con
sumption or gasoline. The success
cf the tests will be followed by the
abandonment of steam service and
the substitution of the new type of
motor on many branches where the
traffic is light.

NOTED RADIUM CURE
-. What physicians proiiouuce one of
the most remarkable cures through the
agency of radium In the history of
medical science was recently continued
by the examination of a patient who
was expected to die six mouths ago.
when be vent to Flower hospital in
New York city with a malignant tumor
the size of a child's head in hi abdo
men. . The large mass which threatened his
!lfe has disappeared, anil the small re
rualping knot in its place has lost its
character as a tumor and Is simply
scar ti-sue which has not been re
moved by th? process of absorption.
Drs. William II. DIeffeubach and
William Ted Ilelmutb. who have had
the a.-e in charge, claim for Flower
hospital the discover of the method
employed, which was the injection of
relatin impregnated with radium into
the tumor itself after the' seat of the
trouble had been, reached by opening
the abdominal cavity. . Thepractlee la
the only other glmilar caseon record
one periormed in Kurope some rtays
ago, was to Inclose the radium in a 1
glass tube, which was sewed up iu '
