Distinguished Heads Scottish Rite The reunion brings strongly into the minds of the Scottish Rite the names of those distinguished men who have dur ing a period of three-quarters of a cen tury held the highest office, venerable grand commander of the southern juris diction. * First is that of Albert Pike, the scholar, poet and the master mind, whose genius and personality gave the Scottish Rite a higher conception of its dignity, and the phillsophy inseparably Interwoven with tin- fabric of the order. He passed to his rest in 1871 after having held the highest office in the Scottish Rite for more than 60 years. General Pike was succeeded by Dr. Bachelor of New Orleans.

Football Result At I.exington: Virginia Military 14, University ol Mississippi U, • TO MAKE TESTS OF AUTOMATIC DEVICE TO STOP TRAINS Julian and Associates to Try Out Invention on the Queen and Crescent Route - i M. R. Julian and associates of Bir mingham have bean given permission by the management of the Queen and Cres cent route for a practical test on the Cincinnati, New Orleans and Tertas Pa cific division for their automatic train stop and cab signal. The test is to be made under the super vision of the officials of the Queen and Crescent and Stephen Smith and J. V. Morris of this city, the work to beghi within the next week. On account of the numerous fatal wrecks on the Ameridan railroads and especially the recent wrecks on the New York, New Haven and Hartford rail way, the general public is demanding that something be done to prevent such a great loss of human life. The larger railroads In the east have been enedavor lng to get a practical automatic train stop and cab signal that will stop a train when tile engineer fails in his duty. It is said that the objection to the present signals is the inability of the engineer to see the board or semaphore arm in time to stop his train. It has been .estimated by experts that engineers on some of the faster trains have to catch a board, or semaphore, every 30 seconds and look after the engine at the same time, while In a great many cases he is making 70 miles per hour to make his scheduled time. This experts claim to be a physical impossibility, as the engineer has to see the board about 200 feet before he gets to it to keep from overrunning danger signals. Realizing these conditions, the ' New York, New Haven and Hartford has of fered a prize of Slo.000 to the man who can perfect a practical cab signal and automatic train stop. The cause of the recent wrecks on the New York, New Haven and Hartford was due to the fact that the engineer did not run his train according to the signals received because he could not see them. The Julian signal eliminates this feature as It puts the signal In the cal) of the locomotive where he can see them by means of three electric lights at all times, and he claims there is no excuse for not regarding his signals. If. how ever. an engineer does disregard the sig nal there is a recording tape-clock which records the kind of signal he got, the time of day he received the signal and the speed of the train, simultaneously. If he gets the danger signal, the train is automatically brought to a stop regard less of the action of engineer. The United States government has re cently appropriated $25,000 to be used in Investigating the efficiency of any such devices, and there has been a bill intro duced into Congress making this com pulsory for railroads to use such a de vice if found practical. To do this they will only have to mend the. present safety appliance act to include this device. There has been an association formed in the east comprised of fhe leading rail road experts of the larger railroads which is known as the American Railway asso ciation, which has issued a circular letter , to all general managers of all Amerl- | can railroads, stating the requirements ; for cab signal and automatic train stop Mr. Julian claims that bis device covers j in detail every requirement asked for; by these experts. The inventor has been working on his i device for the past three years and has I taken out several patents on it. To briefly describe the working of signal: The signal is indicated in the cab of engine by means of electric lights which indicate the condition of the track ahead j at all times. If the block ahead is clear, j he receives white light; if. however, there is a train in block ahead, the green light or caution signal will be displayed; then upon • entering the block occupied by a train he receives a red light or danger signal and the brakes are automaticallv applied. Mr. Julian claims Ids device will abso lutely prevent trains frim running into open switches, open draw bridges, burn ing bridges or any other dangerous sig nals. This the inventor experts to show during the demonstration to be made on the Queen and Crescent out of Cincin nati. CONFCTTH PENSIONERS BEFORE FERGUSON Montgomery.
