It ono time a railroad engineer. Hl.s
dream carried him back to the days
ion of the throttle and he was brought to
the the tlrno when ho found II necessary
irn- to "smoko Into" the siding. His train
was approaching a switch , which had
ere to bo thrown. "As plain as if I was
on the road today , " ho says , "a device
Ion presented ItEelf In that dream where
by I could throw that switch from my
engine , without stopping and making
It necessary for the man to get down
and do the work. Just as I was startIng -
Iho Ing Into the switch I woke up and
1 of with my awakening the Invention was
Jin- lost. "
