RAILROAD RUN BY ONE MAN.
Traveler Returning from Maryland
Telle ef Unique Line.
"During n recent trip through south
ern Maryland, where I spent a week
of my vacation," said a New York
business man, MI had occasion to ride
on the oddest and perhaps most
unique little railroad in America. This
road, a branch of the Washington ft
Potomac railroad, runs from Brandy
wine, In Charles county, to Mechanics
vllle, In St Mary's county, a distance
of 18 miles. The single train, which
runs each way daily, is made up of
the engine, -one freight car and one
combination passenger and baggage
car. The schedule seems to be liberal,
and no hurry Is ever manifested In
"The conductor of the train, who
also acts as baggagemaster, is general
manager of the road. He issues or
ders as general manager and obeys
them as conductor. When as con
ductor he thinks the schedule should
be changed he notifies the general
manager hlmseix who, it ne tninas
It advisable, makes up a new schedule
and issues running orders accordingly
to the conductor also himself and
the latter obeys. The engineer is
master mechanic, chief 'of transporta
tatlon and overseer of the roadbed.
The Iranian drives the express wagon
between trips. There are no ticket
agents along the route, and the con
ductor collects fares, as on a street
railway, punching a hole for each fare
In a slip of cardboard. Then he goes
into the baggage car, sees that the
trunks are properly delivered and
looks after the express and mail pack
ages. The road has no stations between
Braadywlne and Mechanicsville, and
if a passenger desires to leave the
train at aay of the dozen villages be
tween the main points he or she must
notify the conductor of such intention.
A printed card on the back of each
car seat reads:
"'Passengers wishing to board the
train between stations have only to
stand near the track, hail the engin
eer, and he will stop.' "
Country Manual Training.
Even manual 'training needs new
direction as it touches country life. It
may not be necessary to eliminate the
formal exercises of model work and
weaving and the lika; but some of the
practical problems of the home and
farm may be added.
How to make a garden, to lay out
paths, make fences and labels, are
manual training problems. How to
saw a board off straight, to drive a
nail, to whittle a peg. to make a tooth
for a hand hay rake, to repair a hoe,
to sharpen a saw, to paint a fence, to
hang a gate, to adjust a plow point,
to mend a strap, to prune an apple
tree, to harness a horse the problems
are bewildering from their very num
ber. Manual training can be so taught in
the schools that are equipped for it as,
in 10 years, to start a revolution in the
agriculture of any commonwealth.
