Tlie Union Pacific to Hun All Vesttbuled
Gas lighted Cars.
For several months the chief officials
of the Union Pacific have been looking
over the large number of appliances used
in lighting coaches with a view to put
ting into the cars of the company some
improved light. The old oil lamps now
in use have outlived their usefulness
and do not give satisfaction in this age
of improvements. At first it was pro
posed that electricity be substituted for
oil, but when an estimate of the cost of
this was made it was found that the ex
pense would be so great that it would be
out of the question entirety. The com-
any could not hfford to fit out its thous
ands of coaches with all electric wires
and lamps, to which would have to be
added the cost of the dynamos on the
locomotives and a special engine to fur
nish power for the dynamo. The elec
tric system would make a great deal of
extra work for the engineer, and this,
together with the cost, rendered the
system impracticable. The side lamp
system was also investigated, but as this
was similar to the one now in use by the
company except that the- lamps are
placed on the sides of the coaches instead
of at the top, it was also abandoned.
There are several gas-lighting systems
in use on the large railroad systems of the
country and they differ very materially
from each other. When the railroad
company finally decided to light their
coaches with gas they were uncertain
which of the systems to use After re
peated trials they declared the" Pinch
light the best for their purpose and ac
cordingly a contract was awarded for
that light.- The Pinch light is produced
by plain lighting or coal gas generated
at works erected for that purpose at
various points along the road. The gas
is stored in a tank, which usually forms
a part, of the top of one of the cars of the
train to be lighted. The car is switched
to a point near the gas works and the
gas is forced into this tank until a high
pressure sufficient to force it through the
other coaches is indicated upon a gauge
provided for that purpose. Under each
of the coaches runs a small pipe con
nected at the ends of the coaches in a
manner similar to that used in the con
nection of air brake hose, and it ie
through this pipe that" the gas is carried
through the train. The lights are not
like the common gas jets used in dwell
ings, but consist of , a circular flame,
which is covered by a concave glass
which throws the -light downward, as
would an invented bull's-eye lantern.
The Fence of the Future.
There are a number of stronsr points in
favor of the Tuna Hedge as the fence of
the future, the advantage of this kind of
a fence may be briefly inumerateu as
follows : ' It becomes- a perfect barrier
against all kinds of domestic animals
after three years growth ; does not sap
or impoverish the ground, being a strict
ly atmospheric plant, and will not grow
from the seed or by cutting the roots
hence will not spread, it grows only to a
certain uniform height and therefore
does not require trimming, it has been
thoroughly and successfully tested in
northern climates and does not kill out
in the winter time, it serves the double
purpose of usefulness and ornamen
tation, as it is an evergreen and blooms
during three months of the year, an .in
vitation is extended to' thoroughly teJ
its merits, and every one will be con
vinced that it possesses all the advant
ages claimed for it. Messrs. Johnson &
Payne are now taking orders for the
Tuna Hedge and have met with uniform
success. Any one wishing a livinggrow
ing fence something that will not spread
and will be a fence for all time to come
should give their orders now afid get
their fence started this fall.
