Hfunl.tlna Time of Train.
The aysteiii of haikHlm railway

I not all, rullr.snls In this country con
form to that code 111 the nN-ratloll of
I trains, pas-eiig'T ami ireigin.
i I'uder the old system trains were run
j by time cards. A train left Chicago,
for Instance, at 7 p. in. Roll).' west.
An east-bound trnJn on the same line
that was before the double-track sys
tem now In vogue by some cntnpnnle
had left a given station on Its schedule
time. The time card Indlcat.sl when
and where ihoso tralna were to meet
and Jin. In an open country, on a
line comparatively straight, and In the
daytime, there was no danger even un
der such at, uncertain and blind uys
tetn. Hut running trains under such a
nystetn on a road made up of curves
and In a foggy or black night was

tem of those who had the rcsHiusiblI-
The man who first suggested han
dling trains by wire Is still living. His
name Is ltols-rt Pltealrn. When the war
wa.s under way Thomas I Scott was
I at llie head of the Pennsylvania aya-
I A short lime la-fore the battle of An
j tletam I.llinilu scut for Scott and told
, him with characteristic frankness of
I the program. As showing Lincoln's
: capacity 11s a military man, he told
I Scott that the battle would lie fought
near Aiitletam. about such a time. The
commander of the Armv of the Polo-!
inae was present
the only obstacl
foresight could discern. In the way of
victory, was the liisuilic lent means the
t bit-eminent had of handling Its troops
and the munitions of war.
Scott thought that rid be arrang
ed, lie consulted with Pltealrn. who
bad general ktiowlnlge of the han
dling of trains, as he had of everything
else In connection with railroad mat
ters. Pltealrn said It could be done If
he waa given full authority to handle
nil the trains. This was granted, ami
the work was done on the same gen
eral system as that now lu use, ami
I itcalru delivered at the aniiolnteil
plaiT. on time, every man. horse, un...
'ii, gun and other war munitions which
were Drought Into play lu one of the
great conflicts of the war. In plain
KnglUli, he simply sent one order, or

points over the track, It Ignlfje that

Within Hie limits of a crowded city,
like Chicago, trains are run on what
Is known iin the bhs k system. Some
roads have electric connections show
ing that Ihe track In clear between
certain points. Oilier roads have the
system of disks, showing different
lights by day and night. This system,
however, Is lndes'iident of the train
