A SCHOOL ON WHEELS.
lutr the WestlnRlioiMi ) Alr-tlrnko Bjttin
A few weelts ngo there rolled intt >
the yard of the NCT ; York , New Ha
ven and Hartford railroad , at Pnrk
square , a most unusual kind of Bchool-
houso. It was backed upon a siding ,
nnd remained there until It left the
city. This BChoolhouse , with Its corps
of competent Instructors , Is the only
one of Its kind in this country , or In
the whole world , for that matter , and
s owned and operated by the Wcst-
nghouso Air Brake company. It Is
made up of three cars and has traveled
more than fifty-five thousand miles. In
t more than one hundred thousand
railroad men have been Instructed
within the eight years of its exist
ence. It Is n perfectly constructed
school house , fitted with every appli
ance for instructing the pupils In the
iso of the Westlnghouso Air Brake
system , and has Its principal and Its
competent teachers. "When the West
lnghouso air brake was Invented and
applied to steam railroads , It wna
found to bo the best thing of Its kind
ever invented , provided It was proper
ly handled. It Is automatic In its ac
tion , but the best results could not
be obtained without a competent man
at the throttle , who understood per
fectly Just what results might bo ob
tained with a certain amount of pres
sure. It was this fact that led to the
establishment of the schoolhousoT
which Just now has its headquarters
In Boston. It was the idea of getting
the best results out of the brake , and
therefore insuring greater safety to
the passengers and a saving of prop
erty to the railroads and shippers , that
was the inspiration of this remarkable
school. It was in 1889 that the three
cars that compose the schoolhouse
were built in Altoona , Pa. , by the
Westlnghouso Air Brake company. The
instruction car is equipped with the
full number of air brakes , number of
feet of piping , coupling , auxiliary res
ervoirs , etc. , to equip a freight train
of thirty cars , and'nlso'to equip a pas
senger train of fifteen oars fitted with
the whistle signaling device. The in
struction car weighs 135,000 pounds ,
nnd is one of the heaviest cars that
ever traveled the rails of a railroad.
Moro than 112,000 railroad men Eave
received instruction nnd have been
examined as to their competency. The
schoolhouse of three cars has been on
every railroad west of the Mississippi
river , Including Manitoba , Canada , and
Mexico. It has also been over thou
sands of miles of railroad on the mlfl
die Atlantic , central and southern
States. Boston Transcript.
STAMPS AND COINS.
Assistant Postmastcr-Qeneral Mer-
rltt has decided upon the designs for a
series of new postage stamps for the
island of Cuba , and they will bo sup
plied as promptly as possible by the
bureau of engraving and printing. An
other series of stamps will bo made
for Porto Rico , and n third set for the
Philippine Islands. They will be fur
nished by the United States , but the
proceeds of their sale will bo turned
into the local treasuries until congress
shall order otherwise. All three of
the new colonies are to be treated by
the postolflce department as foreign
countries until some permanent form
of government has been adopted for
thorn , and the old rates of postage will
I'd maintained. It will require a five-
cent stamp to carry a letter to Cuba
and Porto Rico as before.
General Adjutant von Petroff , now
postmaster general of Russia , Intro
duced novel letter boxes throughout
the Russian cities , and ordered the
more frequent collection of letters
from the boxes. The new boxes stand
on corners of streets , so that the public
can reach them from sidewalks ; the
letter carrier who collects the mall
opens them from the street side with
out oven dismounting from hlawheel. .
All the collecting carriers have been
provided with tricycles having a large
receptacle for the mail matter In front
The stamps of the Cuban republic ,
printed a year or so ago , as a means
of raising funds for the Insurgents
have been sold in large quantities
though they have never been recog
nized as postage stamps , if a letter
franked with one of these labels was
sent to the United States It was treat
ed by the postal authorities as wholly
unpaid , and the postage collected upon
delivery. Having no recocnlzed gov
ernment the Cubans could not issue
postage stamps and expect them to
be honored in other countries.
The duke of York , who is now about
35 years of age , and in direct line to
the throne of England , is a most con
spicuous figure in the stamp world. He
Is a collector , and , of course , has a
very fine collection , although it does
not compare with any other noted al
bums in Europe , but then ho is a royal
highness , and that makes a heap of
difference , in the stamp world as else
The prejudices of men are rooted for
the most part in their personal charac
ter ; and on account of this close con
nection with the roots of personal ex
istence , they cannot bo removed.
Neither evidence nor understanding ,
nor reason , has the least effect on
