A patent on a unique dovlco , de
signed to prevent the collision of rail
road trains , has just been granted to
James S. Anderson , who lives at Ames.
The patent consists of an electrical
signal that gives the engineer notice
of approaching danger , the signals be
ing intended to operate a distance of
five miles , so that the warning will bo
given while trains are that far apart.
The locomotive will have in Its cab
a signal bell. Above will extend a rod
that will strike an overhanging ap
paratus , so that when another train la
entering that particular stretch of road ,
a circuit will bo established and the
signal bells will ring. The patent will
also Include features for giving warn
ing of open switches and burned bridg
es. Mr. Anderson has been working
for two years to perfect this device
and he believes he has succeeded In
getting the result ho wanted. Ho is
not a railroad man , but has Liken con

a number of years.
