OLD-TIMERS STOOD AGHAST AT
THIRTY MILES AN HOUR.
To Them Such Rapid Traveling Seem
ed Almost Beyond Possibility,
Much as Traffic of the Air
If the ghost of Horace Greeley were
to come wandering back across the
hills to this town,
where he once
worked as a Jour
it would not only

the face of those
some of the
things his nimble
fingers set in the
office of the old
says a Gowanda
(N. Y.) correspondent
In giving a brief resume of rail
road progress, a report tells of the
advancement in carrying mails from a
speed of seven miles per day, twenty
years before that date, up to nine
miles per hour at the date of the re
port. Then comes this naive state
ment: "Attempts are making to
force it up to ten miles an hour, but
at anything beyond this, to a cer
tainty, horsepower falls us. How,
then, shall we find terms adequate to
express the value of a discovery which
carries us from ten to twenty or thirty
miles an hour?"
Speaking of the expenses of rail
road maintenance, the report men
tions a day's cost of a train upon the
Manchester railroad. This was in
England, and, of course, English
money. "The hire of the engine man,
four shillings; fireman, two shillings
and six pence; coal, three shillings
and four pence; oil, one shilling. To
tal, ten shillings and ten pence sterling."
At every point in this old report one
finds facts of great interest to one liv
ing in the present day. when air traffic
brings up similar comments.
At that time the Freeman and Mes
senger was published by G. N. Starr,
with weekly issue and subscription
price of $2.50 a year. In clubs of
twelve, the cost was brought down to
$1.25. Advertising went by the square
inch. Instead of by column- inch as
now, and the rate was "$1 per square,
with liberal discount to those who
advertise-by the year."
Even so far along as 1851, when
the New York & Erie railroad went
through Dayton, four miles away,
newspaper methods were somewhat
different from now. In an obscure
place on the inside pages of a Go
wanda paper was a short notice of
the passing through of President
Millard Fillmore, with Daniel Web
ster, secretary of state, the remainder
of the cabinet, Governor Washington
Hunt of New York and railroad offi
cials. Over this was the head: "Hor
rible Casualty." At the bottom of the
article it said that two young men.
Franklin Peacock and Ebenezer Hen
ry, were badly and perhaps fatally in
jured by the premature explosion or
bursting of a cannon fired in salute to
The following week, in the editorial
notices, the death of young Peacock
was mentioned. So do times and
newspapers change. Buffalo Express.
Plan Monster Terminal.
The Canadian Pacific Railway is
planning a new terminal for through
freight which will cost about $7,000,
000. This line is said to have at Win
nipeg the largest car yard in the
world. There are 132 miles of track,
with accommodations for upward of
3,000 cars. Engineers are 'making
plans for a clearing yard with accom
modations for 5,000 cars.
COLD WEATHER AND METALS
Scientists Assert Temperature Makes
'No Difference, but Railroad
Broken rails and broken axles hare
caused many accidents this winter,
with its unusually low temperature,
yet certain scientists who are report
ed to be high authorities concerning
strength of material insist that cold
does not cause metal to become brit
tle, and that the idea that such is the
case is a popular fallacy. Among the
scientists holding these views are
Styffe, Fairbain, Klrkaldy. Webster,
the United States government com
mission, and others: but they have
against them all the practical men
who have to handle tools or material
in zero weather. It is no superstition
that induced a wood chopper to warm
his ax before beginning work on a
frosty morning; and it is the teachings
of experience that induces the trackman
to lighten his blows on his cflld chisel
when the temperature is low, and be
knows it is not necessary to cut so
deeply into the rail to be broken as it
would be if the day were warm. Civil
engineers, as a rule, have insisted
that temperature makes no difference
to the resisting power of metals, not
withstanding that the popular voice
has always maintained that metals
break more readily in cold than in
warm weather. The correctness of
the popular belief concerning metal
getting brittle when cold- was vindi
cated by tests made by a member of
the British Institution of Civil En
gineers some years ago. A series of
drop tests were made on axles kept
artificially in a temperature of zero
and on other axles of the same kind
kept at 100 Fahrenheit. The results
were that the axles tested warm ex
hibited an average of 58 per cent,
more resisting power than those tested
at the lower temperature. Chicago
WILL REPLACE WOODEN TIE
Railroads Quick to See Possibilities of
New Concrete "Sleeper," Re
A struggling Californian named
George Gates, who is 70 years of age,
has sold to a syndicate of eleven of
the greatest railway systems of the
United States, for three and a half
millions sterling, the patent rights to
a concrete railway tie or sleeper, in
vented by him. The new concrete
sleeper is considered the greatest rail
way invention since the airbrake. It
is a composition of substances which
afford extraordinary resilience and
durability. A single machine can turn
them out at the rate of 3,500 a day.
Gates is a veteran of the Civil war
and has had a hard fight with poverty
during his career as an inventor.
He proposed to spend a portion of
the money now received in perfecting
and Introducing another invention
styled by him a "continuous rail." Of
the remainder the bulk will be placed
in trust for the benefit of his wife and
relatives generally. For the present
Gates lives in a modest cottage in San
Jose, Cal. Sunday Magazine.

PERFECTED BLOCK SIGNALS
WHAT is called the block signal shows tbe railroad engineer whether tbe
way ahead is clear or blocked. In tbe modern block system of signals
used on so many of the railroads the movements of a train are actually
controlled by the movement of another through the operation of these sig
nals. Here again electricity plays a wonderful part.
How the Dimes Grow
Wonderful how easy it is to break a dollar and spend it
a dime at a time. But it is just as easy to save a dollar a
dime at a time if you, cultivate the habit. Dimes grow into
dollars rapidly and a dollar working for you helps you in
getting the dollars you are working for. "We help you culti
vate the saving habit, and the dollars you save we will put
to work for you. Make your dollars work for you and in
time you'll not 'need to work so hard for them. v
