The first trip over the new third rail track from New Britain to Berlin was made to day at 12:30 .o'clock. The motor car had orie closed coach for a trailer, and the trip took the place of the regu lar 12:30 passenger steam train. Head Motorman William Lj. Evans handled the motor, and Conductor John Graham looked after the passengers. The offi cials of the company on board were General Superintendent C. H. Piatt of New Haven, Vice-President John M. Hall of New Haven, Colonel N. H. Heft chief of the electrical department, Road Master Hamilton and Division Super intendent Davison of Hartford. Mr. Davison superintended the trip. The run from the passenger station in New Britain to the Berlin depot was made In five minutes, and the return trip in six minutes. Motorman Evans was compelled to slow up, on the re turn trip near the American Hosiery factory in New Britain on account of a number of girls who were going down the track to work. At Berlin the officials of the compa ny Inspected the power house and ex pressed themselves satisfied with the working of the machinery. There were fifty regular passengers on the down trip and thirty on the return. No extra power was required for the operation of the car. The run from New Britain to Berlin was made over the new track, which was not completed until late this morning. The return to New Britain was made over the old track. The cars moved quite as smoothly over the new rail as the old, and with much less jolting than over the line to Hartford: The steam trains will not be taken oft 'the Berlin line until next Tuesday, when the new combination baggage and pas senger cars are expected to arrive. The experiment of handling transfer freight will not be tried until President Clark returns home from Europe. The double tracking of .the New York, New Haven & Hartford railroad be tween New Britain and Berlin, which has been in the works for some time, has been practically completed and In a few days third rail service will be opened between those two points. It is proposed to use both tracks, each of which is equipped with the third rail, for both electric and steam service, electricity to be used for passenger ser vice and steam for freight There has been a great deal of work connected with this addition to the third rail ser vice and it Is to be regarded as only the beginning of further development In electric transit. It is possible that an attempt will be made to run freight trains by the third rail. The grade from Berlin to New Britain Is an es pecially heavy one, fifty feet to the mile and the test of the new line will be as severe as any that can be made In this section. It is expected that the motors will do the work all right and no diffi culty Is anticipated. THIRTIETH ANNUAL REUNION. Fifteenth Connecticut Volunteers at Branford, The Fifteenth C. V.

Mail routes through the high lands of the Carolinas, Virginia and Kentucky and other states brought them many thousands of dollars. A favorite method was to sub-let con tracts to "circuit riding" preachers who made regular trips horseback, and who would carry the mails for al most any sum they could get, frequent ly for less than one-tenth of the amount the star routers were receiving for the work. It is difficult to tell Just how much money was made out of the business, and in a manner perfectly legitimate, in its rosy days, but hints here and there give some idea of the profits. One route of thirty-aix miles In Michi gan, which had a mall each way every day, was awarded to the contractors for six thousand dollars a year, or twenty-four thousand dollars for the life contract. It was sub-let to a live ryman at Just one-half the sum. The liveryman killed forty horses and sank a lot of cash, besides trying to get rich on the job. An old traveling agent now out of the business says he has let many a contract at a profit of 75 per cent, to his employers. William Harding of London is one of the veteran route agents. He has been In the service of the big contrac tors for thirty years, and Is still In the business, which he says has now about gone the way of many other good things. Harding ,v has been in every state In the Union time and again, dealing with sub-contractors, and has cashed checks in every county seat in the United States where there Is a na tional bank. Of the younger set of professional star routers W. B. Catching of London Is probably the most successful. He is yet In the neighborhood of thirty, but has an old head. A few years ago Catching was a subordinate of one of the old star route kings, and In this way he mastered the science. .Then he got hold of a little money, a thousand or so, and went to bidding for routes on his own hook. He was shrewd and bold, and his success has been phenom enal. How much he has made nobody knows. Some say that at times his profits approximated sixty thousand dollars a year. He built the Catching block In London 'at a cost of seventy- five thousand dollars, has lived well and is rated high. When a subscrip tion was started for a big school at London, Catching was approached, and put his name down for ten thousand dollars or fifteen thousand dollars as quietly as he would have given a dol lar. Catching, like his successful pre decessors, transacts the larger part of his business from an unpretentious of fice in London. Ed Parker, another brilliant young operator, has also made his pile. In the mountains they will tell you that thirty, thousand dollars 13 not the measure of his Income. He, too, was a product of the Kentucky mountains, and learned the art In the service of the veterans. He had brains and nerve, and Is still in the game. Parker has lived well and his fondness for pol itics, state and national, has cost him some thousands. He was the leader of the revolt against Br. Hunter, the nominee of the republican senatorial caucus at Frankfort In March, and has been prominent In other party affairs. While many large fortunes have been made In star route speculations, much money has also been lost, and not a few of the mountain operators sank tlwrfr thousands In unfortunate contracts. The business is a science, and the novice Is In great danger of burning his fingers the 15nt time he tackles the schedule. In ttte last ten years professional star routers have sprung up all over the country. At every letting the competition Is warmer and the margins more closely drawn. The "land office" business of the fa mous old Southern Mall and Transpor tation Co. is now a thing of the past Within a few years the contractor will earn all he gets out of the routes.
