The explosion of one torpedo is a signal to Stop the explosion of two not More than 200 feet apart is a Sig Nal to reduce Speed and look out for a Stop signal. The fuses Are of similar construction to the Well known roman Candle used for fireworks celebrations except that they Burn a steady flame without explosions. A Sharp Iron Spike at the Bottom end will usually stick in the ground or in the Cross tie when thrown from the rear of a train and holds the Fusee in an upright position where it is More plainly visible. A Fusee must be lighted and left by the flagman whenever a train is running on the time of another train or behind its own time and under circumstances which Call for such Protection. A Fusee on or near the track Burn ing red must not be passed. When burning yellow the train May proceed with caution when the Way is seen and known to be Clear. Standard fuses Burn red for three minutes and Yel Low for seven minutes and can be seen for quite a distance. You will gather from the above explanations that the red Glare of a flaming Fusee on or near the track warns the approaching Engineer that a preceding train has passed Over his track less than three minutes ahead of him and under no circumstances must pass this signal while burning red. When the flame turns to yellow May proceed with caution Only As the Way is seen and known to be Clear keeping in mind that when the Fusee changed from Rod to yellow was exactly three minutes behind a preceding train which May have Stop Ped within a Short distance or May be proceeding at an unusually slow rate of the superintendent of the Shore line division another Branch of the same Railroad gives this additional detail re Garding torpedoes when a train stops upon the main line and requires Protection against a following train the flagman goes Back a specified distance and places one tor Pedo. then continues a farther distance Back placing two torpedoes. As soon As the train to is protecting is ready to Start the Engineer blows a specified whistle signal which is a notice to the flagman to return to his train. On the Way Back picks up the one torpedo leaving two on the rail to warn the Engineer of an approaching train that another train is a Short distance ahead and to give the flagman time to run Back and get aboard of his own of the use of fireworks As signals in the Navy the chief of the Bureau of construction and repair of the Navy department Washington makes the Fol lowing statement All modern ships Are fitted with electric signals and the use of such signals is general in the naval service. In the Case of Small vessels having no electric installation and also for use in Case of the failure of the electric Sig nals the Navy has a system of coloured stars in connection with rockets for the purpose of signalling. These Are in no sense the Ordinary commercial fireworks but Are manufactured by the service for naval use exclusively. There Are no photographs of this system of signals for distribution. The apparatus consists of a specially de signed pistol from which Are fired cartridges containing the coloured stars that Are used in the service code."? new York mail. The Optimist.

Life life is the finest of the Fine arts. It has to be Learned with lifelong patience and the years of our Pilgrim Ages Are All too Short to master it tri umphantly.? Drummond. Her 9acred word. Not going to Alice s luncheon but you gave your sacred word so i did and i d go in a minute if my dress had come home."?Harper s Bazar. We must laugh before we Are Happy or else we May die before we Ever laugh at All la Bruyere. Number 6. Philippine volcanoes. Mayon is the most famous and the Taal comes next. The most famous philippine Volcano and one of the finest Volcano Cones in the world is that of Mayon. Its height is 8,970 feet and the Volcano is visible at a great distance. Since 1766records have been kept of its eruptions. In that year Many plantations and Vil Lages were buried under a Stream of lava which flowed Down its Eastern slope. About 1,200 lives were lost in the eruption of 1814, which buried the country around a part of the base of Mayon under the outpourings of lava and dust. A similar calamity in 1825 destroyed the lives of about 1,500 per sons. In the nineteenth Century there a number of severe eruptions including one in 188g-7 which continued about nine months. An eruption in 1897 killed 350 persons and destroyed much property. Twenty two violent eruptions of this Volcano Are on record. Next to Mayon the Taal Volcano is the most remarkable. It is on an is land in the Lake of Bombon and the is land built up by its outpourings has an area of 220 Square Miles. The vol Cano is incessantly ejecting dust and vapor from its Crater. Taal As Well As Mayon has been the Center of numer Ous destructive earthquakes but no very great eruption has occurred since 1864, when four villages around the Mountain were completely destroyed. Lengthy visits. The uns tinted hospitality of old Vir Ginia. Virginia hospitality is a byword. The old time country House says mrs. Roger a. Pryor in my Day was of elastic material capable of sheltering any number of guests Matiy of whom remained All summer. In deed this was expected of them. dear sir said the genial Mas ter of Westover to a departing guest who had sought shelter from a rain storm my dear sir do stay and pay us a the guest pleaded business that for bade his compliance. Well Well said major Drewry if you can t pay us a visit come for two or three weeks at least week ends were unknown in Vir Ginia and equally out of the question an invitation limited by the Host to prescribed Days and hours. Some times a Happy guest would ignore time altogether and stay along from season to season. I cannot remember a parallel Case to that of Isaac Watts who invited by sir Thomas Abney to spend a night at Stoke Newington accepted with great cheerfulness and stared the rest of his life nearly forty years but i do remember that an invitation for one night brought to a member of our family a pleasant couple who remained for years. Mozart s musical memory. Mozart had a wonderful memory of musical sounds. When Only fourteen years of age went to Rome to As Sist in the solemnities of holy week. Immediately after his arrival went to the sistine Chapel to hear the famous miserere of Allegro being aware that it was forbidden to take or give a copy of this renowned piece of music Mozart placed himself in a Cor Ner and gave the strictest attention to the music and on leaving the Church noted Down the entire piece. A few Days afterwards heard it a second time and following the music with his own copy in his hand satisfied himself of the Fidelity of his memory. The next Day Sang the miserere at a concert accompanying himself on the harpsichord and the performance produced such a sensation in Rome that Pope Clement Xiv. Requested that this musical Prodigy should be presented to him at once. Picturing the face. Why do you photographers always photograph the left Side of the face by preference because it s the Best looking was the prompt reply. The left Side of the face is always the More regular and it always shows least the Marks of time. But continued if you want to bring out the read character of a face photograph the right Side. There nature sets her print there the lines Are bold and unmistakable. There every defect no less than every excellence is stamped deep. The left Side where everything is softened Down for Beauty. The right Side where everything is Well rubbed in for character. Those Are the por trait artist s two chief rules."?new York Tribune. Her importance. Herbert Spencer once told this Story of a woman of his acquaintance vain As Well As vulgar minded she professed to have a High admiration of shake Speare and was partial to Reading his plays aloud and considered that she declaimed the speeches extremely Well. On one occasion after enlarging upon her reverence for him she ended by saying a i often wish that were alive and that i had him Here. How we would enjoy one another s conversation " sure to know. To understand that you have bought some remarkably to yes but what s the use few peo pie know whether a gown is really expensive or not wait until Yon reach the customs inspectors."?Pittsburg Post gentle hint. You want to go Back to your Hus band do you How did you Tell him i bought myself a new hat and Bent him the Bill Flie Gende Blatter. When the heart is won the under standing is easily convinced.
