Ono of tho many qualities that require
to bo possessed by candidates for foot
pinto honors is good sight. In fact it in
tho principal one on British railways
No sight aids of any description nro al
lowed to bo worn, and beforo being'
promoted tho men must bo ublo to pass
satisfactorily a test which, with differ
ent companies, varies in severity. Some
companies test periodically,-whilo others
only do so when tho men aro promoted
to tiring and driving, or when soma ac
dent occurs through a signal having been
mistaken or passed at danger.
In justice, therefore, to tho traveling
public, as well as for their own interests,
it is tho duty of railway companies to
seo that the men they place in such re
sponsible positions are thoroughly com
petent, as tho speed at which trains are
now run requires nctUcnesa of vision.
In tho early days of railway enterprise,
tho train was often preceded by a man on
foot sometimes on horseback whoso
duty It was to soo tho lino clear, but
with tho rapid developments made in lo
comotive engineering it was soon found
necessary to dispense with this "herald,"
nnd in duo course fixed signals were
placed nlong tho route.
Thus tho responsibility of seeing tho
position of fiiguulsiunl attending to them
was placed upon tho men in charge of
tho train viz, driver, flronmn and
guard for tho latter in tho oveut of an
accident must bo ulilo to stato whether
tho Bignul wan clear or not, and his sight
(also that of uhuutcra and signalmen) is
subjected to tlio bamo test as that of the
Vnriouu inc.ho.Ui of testing have been
resorted to, but tho nuo which for, a con
Bidornblo period was iibcd by railway
companico.r-.nd which tho men still most
approvo of. was tct'iing by means of Hags
and latum. 'I no cattdiriiito was taken to
anlcobtnught Ctr'jwh, uud another party
with tho flaga (red, green nnd white) by

about COO yurda uud exposed tho signals,
which tho candidate was required to
namo to tho foreman or inspactor pres
ent, Bomo officials, howover, do not approvo
of tho caudidato naming tho colors, and
in mich cases what is known as tho "wool
test" liuri to bo gono through. This con
sists of a bundle of various colored wools
from which tho caudidato must pick out
pieces ho thinks correspond to skeins
which aro given him to match. In some
companies tho skeins aro simply hung
on ft bar and tho candidate asked to
point out tho danger colors, etc., with
out naming them, but as there aro vari
oua kinds of color blindness, It is much
bettor to use other colors as well as

large would advise everybody
doubtedly tills is tho correct method for
testing color blindness if properly con
ducted. Dut the method which at tho present
timo seems most popular is what is
known ns tho "card test." This is a
pieco of cnrdb'-ird ibout Tig inches by U
inches, in i... .i i.l luu four corners are
tho colors, n I. green blue and yellow,
all very bright, while tho space left be
tween, about two inches, is divided into
squares one-iifth of an inch, which at a
distance of 15 feet corresponds to a bulls
eyo 2 feet square 01)0 yards away. Tho
candidate 'stands in feet from tho card
and names tho colors 'as they uro pointed
out, ulso counts tho number of bluck
cned squares, which aro varied in num
ber by covering up some with a pieco of
Each eyo is examined separately, both
as to color sense and form, caro being
taken that thu uuuicd eyo is simply cov
ered and not pressed upon, as this causes
irritation of botli members. Having
named tho colors and counted tho spots
correctly, tho caudidato may congratu
late himself that ho has passed.
Generally speaking, tho sight should
bo tested onco every threo or four years,
as during that period accident or diseaso
may have impaired tho vision, while
habitual smokers should bo tested much
oftener, ns it lias been ascertained that
tobacco hiuoko has a deleterious effect
on tho sight.
Ah yet railway companies have not
adopted u hard and fast test. Each has
its own method, but as so many precious
lives aro intrusted to engine drivers uud
their mates, nu exhaustive test should be
made. Strictly speaking three tests
should bo gono through: 1. Wool test,
to detect color blindness. 2. Object tost,
squares or iinall letters, for form. 8.
Tested in datkeued room with lamp for
color ignorance, as it is important that
tho candidate should bo ablo to namo
tho colors. Tlio lamp, having been light
ed, is placed on a table, wliilo tho candi
date stands about "0 feet off. A pieco
of cardboard witli a hole about half an
inch in diameter is placed over tho face
of tho lamp, and various colored glasses
pused in front, which the candidate
should name, remarking whether lighter
or darker than tho previous ono of tho
samo colored group. London Tit-Bits.

You never saw a poet or a painter with
largo, coarse ears that stund out from
tho head like extended wings. That kind
of nu auricular appendage betokens
coarsoiiobs.of mind. A long, narrow ear
that lies flat to tho head is a sign of pug
nacity. Nt-ver trust a man with n thin,
waferlike ear. Ho w is bom a hypocrite,
if not a thief. A very buiall ear betok
ens a trilling mind, lacking decision.

Regarding tho seamanship of ono of
tho iiieinbera of tho Massachusetts naval
reserve: Tho incident occurred during
tho trip on tlio cruiser Man Francisco,
and voluminous as was tho commenda
tory report of tholr doings which was
sent to tlio navy department it did not
tncludo this incident.
On tho Li'coiul night that the reserves
wero ut hea ono of tho amateur tars
was on tho watch. Ho was n Boston
man. Thu night was clear and beauti
ful. Myriads of stars twinkled in tlio
heavens, but there was no moon. Sud
denly tho reserve sang out:
"Where away'" asked tho officer of tho
"Far, far away," replied tho would bo
When thu officer had recovered from
tho shock occasioned by this uuseamau
like answer, ho looked over the rail in
tho direction pointed out by tho man
from Boston. Then ho had another lit.
Tho stern discipline which prevails on a
cruiser at sea did not allow him to swear,
but there was a word of meaning iu tlio
way in which ho growled out: "What's
tho matter with you? Can't you rccognlzo
tho rising moon when you seo iff"
"Moon! Moon I" stammered tho em
bryo sea dog. "I beg your pardon, sir."
Then ho shouted, ns'if making amends
for his error, "Moon, ahoy!" Boston
A lliillmin Screw.
Some very iuteiestiug experiments
have been recently made by M. Mullet
respecting tlio action of a screw iu pro
ducing vertical propulsion iu a balloon,
tho icmltsof which have been presented
to tho Academy. Tho screw was de
signed and set to work by M. Lauglois
do Saumier. It lias a diameter of 1
feot ami turns round a vertical shaft
fixed by two clamps to ono of tho sides
of tlio car. M. Mallet succeeded, by im
parting to tho screw a velocity of 100
revolutions a minute, iu raising tho bal
loon, which has a capacity of 28.000 cu
bic feet, through a vertical bpaco in tlio
samo timo of It:!;) feet.
Frequent repetitions of the satno ex
periment invariably gavo tho samo re
sults. As tho screw revolved, it neces
sarily caused tlio balloon to rotatu also,
but tlio movement was not found to pro
duco any inconvenience, since tlio veloc
ity did not exceed 0 01 of a coinpleto
revolution iu a second. Tho author con
cluded his communication by a series of
observations upon this particular modo
of propulsion, pointing out that it was
exceedingly well adnptod for purposes of
scientific experiments, Uenlo Civil.
