ELECTRICAL System For Rapid Transportation of Mail. F. F. and C. H. Loomis, the elec tricians, have invented an electro magnetic mail carrying system, which has interested some eastern capitalists. The device is peculiarly construct ed, so that small cars, four feet long and 14 inches in diameter are driven at a speed of 400 miles an hour along a small track especially arranged. No motors are used. Dynamos at either end of the line do the work. The system is shown in operation on ia small circular track in the electrical plant of C. H. Loomis. It is estimated that mall can be taken from, Philadelphia to New York in 12 minutes. H. B. Camp of this city, is also in terested in the invention. A patent has been applied for. All experi ments with the system have proven satisfactory. LAST LINKS. BROKEN ARM Cletis, the five-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. A.

Sletboda Taed In tbe aiannfactnre at This ntnseroni Exploilre The Care Tliat Urn to Be Exerclaed In tbe Factories. Nitroglycerin and Its peculiarities are little known, even In localities where it is made. People generally give It a wide berth, and even a less number know how It Is manufactured. Probably in no place In the United States is there such a great amount of the explosive used as in the Indiana oilfields. Indiana has four nitroglycerin factories, and they are seldom visited by curious people. The explosive Is made from a compo sition of acids and glycerin. It Is gener ally pale yellow in color, and quite col orless when pure. It is odorless, and hasia sweet, pungent, aromatic flavor. If touched by one's tongue, or even brought Into contact with the skin, it will produce a severe headache. A large tank, called an agitator, is whem thu fluid is mixed, and the mixture is composed of equal parts of nitric and sulphuric acids. Inside the tank are seeial paddles, like those of a churn, untl it is here that the real danger In the manufacture exists. The paddles are put in operation and a steady stieam of sweet glycerin is turned into n vat until 2S0 pounds are thoroughly mli.ed with the 1,500 ponnds of acid. The chemicals coming in contact pro duce an intense heat, and in order to obviate the danger cold water Is run through pipes encircling and running through the vat. At S5 degrees F. a red vapor, almost like fire, arises. If cutting off the supply of glycerin in the agitator does not lower the temper ature. It Is time to say farewell. Before 90 degrees are reached nothing but atoms of the structure and Its contents are left In Its manufacture water Is used to flood the workroom, since a drop fall- t Ing on the floor might lead to an explo-, sion. Not a nail Is to be found in the floor of the factory, and the visitor is cautioned not to drag his feet. Those who make the dangerous fluid say that a jar will not cause an explosion; that friction and fire are the only agencies by which It can be discharged. One may pour a barrel of nitroglycerin from a high building to a cement walk below and It will not explode, but a small quantlti of it dropped from the same height in a can will blow the building down. A sharp concussion In stantly touches it off. Factories be come useless nfter a few years' opera tion and have to be destroyed. The timber becomes saturated with nitro glycerin and an explosion is Imminent at any time. The average production of nitroglyc erin from 1,500 pounds of acid and 250 pounds of gjycerin Is about 150 quarts. About 100 quarts constitute an average hot for'an Indiana oil welL While magazine explosions are not rare, the real cause of the blowing up never be comes known. Those who are close enough to see the cause always go Jip with the building. The average time for a shooter or nitroglycerin maker to remain in the business does not exceed five years. Death Is instant, and no one has ever recovered from a nitro glycerin accident Bodies are torn to atoms no larger than bits of sausage. The wages of employees of the fac tories range from ?125 to $150 a month. Colonel "William A. Myers of Bolivar, N. Y., was the man who made and ex ploded the first pound of nitroglycerin in an oil well. He built the first fac tory In the United States near Titus ville. Pa., In 1SGS. Up to that timo powder had been used to torpedo oil wells. It was then that an explosive that could be discharged under watei Was found in nitroglycerin. Colonel Myers father was a Philadelphia chemist and taught his son how to make It The first well torpedoed was on Colo- ncl Mills' lease, near Titusville, and the charge consisted of only two pounds. Oil was worth $0 a barrel then, and a torpedo that would double the produc tion of a well was worth almost what the maker chose to ask for it. Colonel Myers built 12 different factories In different parts of the oil regions from 1803 to 1885, when he retired from the business. Only one of the original fac tories stands Intact today. Myers mado several fortunes and spent his money like a prince, but, fortunately for him, he still has a snug sum laid by. Well shooters spin great yarns of their experiences, and the stories are of the hair raising order. Well shoot ers generally are fatalists to a consid erable degree in their belief, and It Is probably one reason why they do not fear the iluid. They state that when one would think it was the most dan gerous the explosive is the safest. The smallest drop can be placed on an anvil and struck by the heaviest sledge hammer, and the hammer will pound back over the shoulder of the striker, no matter how much he may try to hold it Some claim that It will tear the arm off. but this Is exaggera tion. Transporting the explosive from l magazine to a well Is not as danger ous as timid people think, according to the shooters. It is transported In square cans such as are used for var nish. In preparing for shooting a well, a long tin shell Is suspended in the tub ing, and the shooter pours the fluid J in as ir it was water. It Is not un usual for 200 quarts to be in a well shooter's wagon on one trip. A slight leak In a can may be touched off by friction and explode the entire load. If it should explode In the center of a town, every building would be reduced Instantly to debris. Indianapolis Jour nal. NOT ON THE TIME TABLE. The Cirlou Reason For Which a Train Vuu Side Tracked. In the rarefied atmosphere of the high tablelands of Mexico objects that are really a long way off appear to be close at hand. This has led to many ludicrous mistakes on the part of tour ists, and even on the part of those hav ing a knowledge of the peculiarity of the country. The Mexican Central railroad has a tangent (section of track In which there Is no cun e) that Is said to be the longest In tbe world. It is over 60 miles in length, and a locomotive head light can be seen, of course, for a very long distance.

Koch & Co. curve approaching this tangent, and as it entered on the straight track Its brakes suddenly began to grind. It soon came to a standstill, and the con ductor, fearing that an accident had befallen tbe engine, hurried forward, and was shown by the engineer a light that was twinkling and dancing on the track directly ahead. "A headlight, sure," the engineer said. "Must be an extra and the dis patchers have overlooked it, for orders do not mention it." "Guess you are right," the conductor replied, "but I never knew the dis patchers to be so careless before. Any where,but on this tangent there would have been a collision and somebody killed. We'd better move ahead slowly to the next side track. We can't tell just how near that train may be, and we will wait for it to pass us there." They reached the.side track in safety, ind, drawing in on it, awaited the coming of tbe other train. Half an hour passed, and the engineer was fuming, wondering how much longer he was to be delayed, when the con ductor called him to step out to the main line. "What do you think of that head light, now?" he asked, when the engi neer had joined him. "Seems to have got clear up and off the road." The engineer gazed at the twinkling light, then, "Venus, by Jupiter!" he ex claimed. "Billy, we've side tracked to let a star go by, or my name's not Smith!" Youth's Companion. CLOTHES AND THE MAN.
