TO BJJPERATEB Railroad OfTidals Are Greatly Concerned Regarding Rail way Ties. .. ' WHAT SUBSTITUTE FOR WOOD Boston and Maine Railroad Edu? cating Farmers by ?Sending ( Out a "Butter Train." i ?? ?* ? ' The Norfolk and Western ouTclalB an? nounce that their seaside Sunday ex? cursions will begin on April 2Dth, nnd will continue throughout the season. A little emphasis was added to the growing evidence that a substitute for tho wood tie must he found by the con? sideration of dimensions for a standard tie, which were submitted to Ihe Ameri? can Hallway Engineering and Mainte? nance of Way Association at 11b recent meeting. Th? discussion centered upon tho point that a tie seven Inches by eight Inches by eight feet Is too small for the modern high speed track, In par? ticular affording Insiiillclcnt bearing sur? face, nnd that on tho other hand, It is larger than necessnry for other track, such ns spurs and sidings. Again, for localltlcB whore' tho roadbed In Boft, as In the South, a tio approaching ten feet In length Is required for 'stability.' In view of thla foot It was considered wise to Bpeclfy dimensions for three classes of ties corresponding to tho throe.classes of track, and these will be submitted to tho association nt its meeting In 3007. However, the futility of adopting any ant of standards for ties wafl pointed out by Mr. Baldwin, of the Illinois Central, who admitted that the supply Is virtually tho governing condition which determines the size of ties. Tho extent to which that condition enn bo permitted to govern as demanda of tro/fie and high speed In? crease will doubtless determine the limit of existence of tho wood tie. Thnt some substitute must be found li?,s been pointed out Innumerable times, nod many are liv? ing nnd working In the hope that they ?will evolve the Ideal equivalent. It may be well to boar in mind that such a sub? stitute must be not only the equal, but the superior of tho wood tie, affording by form, dimension, material and mass, better and more permnnent bearing sur? face for the ralis and greater stability^ in the roadbed. The fifty-third meeting of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers will be held at Chattanooga, Tenn'., beginning on May J. Headquarters will be at the lied House.

The Boston nnd Maine Railroad has tried an experiment this spring In sen?l Ing through the State a 'Ibuttor farm? ing special," slmlllar in Its makeup to simular trains run by the Western rail? roads. Tho experiment has met with unexpected.success, being visited by more than 13,000 persons during Its trip through New Hampshire. The exhibits were fur? nished largely by the New Hampshire College of Agriculture of Durham, and President W. D. Glbbs, with a corps of assistants from that Institution, have been In charge. There has lately been such a train run through the South, In charge of scienti? fic farmers, who lectured on various sub? jects. Tho plan met with favor hero.
