the engineers of the Youthen
railway, in order to render tin
' grade on Saluda mountain lea
hazardous. The grade,well knowi
to patrons of the numerous sum

Asheville to Spartanburg, is on<
of the finest pieces of construe

casualties occurred upoi
It. the wrecks of the presen
summer and the recent catastro
phe in which Engineer Averil
and Firomanllair lost their lives
have convinced the heads of tin
system that something must bi
done to lessen the danger to thi
human freight that is daily car
ried over the line.
The plan that has been dovisei
was fully described in The Stab
some days ago. Running off fron
the main line, between Afelrosi

and Saluda, will he placed tvn
spur tracks running up incline
so steep that the impetus of i

frouefi at these switches nigh
and day and the switch will b<
cut in on the main line at al
mm times.
The engineer ot every trail

>^giye the watchman a signal tlia
his train is under full control
Otherwise the switchman wil
ff not
let the train continue on it
course but it will be vent on th>
sidetrack.
Two spur tracks will be put in
for the reason that a train afte
passing the first may gain sulli
cient headway to be practical!;
a runaway and will then be sen
in on the second spur.
The hrst spur will be locater
f about a nnle and a half from Sa
ludft, not a quarter of a mile fron
Big Out, whose walla tower 10<
feet above the track. Thoswitcl
will be placed at the end of i
section of the track which rum
lor a few hundred feet practi
cally in a straight line, thus al
lowing the train if necessary t<
leave it on an easy angle. Fron
the switch the spur will extern

in it. Starting at a percontagi
of 2 feet in 100, the grade wi!
gradually become steeper unti
at its further end the percent agi
will be 12 feet in 100.
"If the grade were any stoepe;
the pilot of the engine would d.j
