STEEL PASSENGER COACHES.
Public Safety Demands the Elimination
Of the Old Wooden Cars.
What Is probably the largest Bteel
passenger car equipment owned by any
railroad In the world is that of the
Pennsylvania Railroad which, with the
cars just completed and those in course
of construction, has 030 all steel pas
senger cars. With this large number
of steel cars, the Pennsylvania Railroad
is now to start the operation of all-steel
pauutjor trains on Bomo of its lines of
On August 12, l!)0(i, tho Pennsylvania
Railroad announced that all future paa
seneer equipment woulil bo built of
steel; not only steel frame but steel and
non-collapsible ir, every particular. In
planning the ears and establishing the
standards, which are now copied in nil
Pennsylvania passenger cars, no ex
pense has been spared by the company
to build a coach which should provide
the greatest possible strength, a stool
framing which could not be affected by
the Ore, an Inside lining which should
be absolutely unburnable, and at the
same time, one that would not conduct
heat or souLd.
The Pennsylvania Railroad in No
vember, 1900, ordered 100 all-steol pas
senger cars. Since that time additional
orders have been placed and there are
now in service on the company's lines
245 coaches, 10 dining cars, 21 combi
nation passenger and baggage cars, 29
baggsge cars, 18 postal cars, and one
company car, a total of 324 cars. In
course of construction there are 140
coaches, 34 dining cars, 43 combination
passenger and baggage cars, 4 baggage
cars, 42 postal cars, 11 mall storage
cars, and 11 baggage and mall cars.
The Pullman Company, at the in
stance ot the Pennsylvania Railroad,
has for the past four years been at work
designing all-steel parlor and Bleeping
cars. Some 500 such cars are shortly
to be completed and placed in service
on tbe Pennsylvania Railroad.
With the all-steel passenger equip
ment now ln-servlce or on order, and
some 250 steel cars to be ordered on
tbe 1910 passenger equipment program,
the Pennsylvania Railroad will, in a
short time, have in service about 900 of
its own steel passenger cars, and 500
steel Pullman oars.
The character of the questions con
cerning color or race, age at last birth
day, conjugal condition, number of
years of present marriage, the number
of children born, and the number of
children now living, to be asked bv the
enumerators In the Thirteenth United
States Census, beginning April 15, next,
Is clear'y explained in the printed In
structions to the census takers, which
have boen prepared bv the United
States Census Bureau. As to age
of the person enumerated,' the
enumerators are cautioned that this
question calls only for the age in com
pleted years at the last blrthdav.
Therefore a person whose exact sire on
April 15 is 17 years, 11 months and 5
days, should be returned simply as 17,
because that Is his age at his last hlrth.
The annual meeting of tho stock
holders of the Reynoldsville Building

fares each way if they ride to the mines:
Consequently most of them get off at
Mitchell's crossing and walk the re

by about one hundred miners has been
prepared asking the trolley company to
Issue a special laborer's ticket which
will permit the miners to ride to tbe

presented at the last meeting of the

the endorsement of that body, and will

telescope to ascertain tbe position of
the herring shoals. This is the way
to make the water telescope:
Procure a tube made of tin and fun
nel shaped about three and a half feet
long and ten Inches In diameter at the
largest end. It should be wide enough
at the top to take in the observer's
eyes, and the inside should be painted
black. At the bottom, or wide end, a
clear, thick piece of glass must be in
serted, with a little lerd In the form
of a ring to weight tbe tube. When
the Instrument is Immersed in clear
water It Is astonishing how many
fathoms down the observer can see.

At the last meeting of the Business

ciiiistitutlon was presented by a com
mittee appointed for that purpose, and
unamiiiiiiioij udcpteJ. It will bocoma
effective after the election in
April. His a ridical departure from
the ( i-i c; i rial constitution, an effort hav
ing b 'eij made to cut out the "red tape"
and alluw freer and more spontaneous
action by tho Association.
The most important change was the
elimination ot the $3.00 entrance fea
and of the monthly assessment feature,
which were so objectionable to many in
the original. Under the new constitu
tion the members simply agree to pay
$1.00 p.-r year Into the treasury to help
carry on the work and pay the rent of a
room for meetings. It Is believed that
many more members can be secured
now that the assessments and high en
rollment fee have been removed. Every
property owner in town should be wil
ling tu contribute one dollar a year
towards tho work of bettering industrial
conditions. Tbe recent sale of the
steel plant has demonstrated tbe value
of such' an organization to the town.
It is working on other projects of equal
importance to the future of Reynolds
ville, but the work cannot be carried on
without a little cash in the treasury.
