Used to Burn Grass Along Railroad Right of Way. A San Antonia special of 15 says: Following the copious rains which have fallen througout this section and abundant crop of weeds has come up and there is probably no place where they grow thicker and do more damage than along the right-of-way of the railroads. In consequence various methodes have been resorted to as a means of exterminating the weeds with more or less success. An effective means, temporarily at least, is a contrivance invented and known as a grass burning machine. This is built on wheels and is hauled over the track with an engine and cars. It is loaded with Beaumont oil and attached to it is an arrangement where by a flame shoots out which instantly destroys all vegetation it cemes in contact with. Under the old method the grass and weeds were cut down by hand and it is estimated that the grass burner saves the railroad company over $200 a day for labor for the time it takes to do this by hand. The grass burner is now at work on the San Antonio and Arkansas Pass line.
