The C. M.& St. P. company has placed

Lridges, a telegraph pole on each side cf
the track and small ropes, about six feet
in length, are hung over the center of' the
track. These little ropes are to notify
thebrabemsn that there is a bridge close
by. When out in a drk nkht. if the
brakeman was standing on an extraordin
ary hih car.and could not see the bridge,
there would be some danger cf him strik
ing it, but as soon as the ropes touch
him he is aware that there is a bridge
a short distance ahead and to get cut cf
danger. There have been & good many
accidents in this way. but as the scheme
is a good one and beneficial to the brake-
men, there will undoubtedly be no more
seiious accidents happening in this way
on the C. M. & St. P. road.
