CODE OF TORPEDO AND FUSEE Mssoagee Thai* Audible and Visible Danger Sign* Conv.y te the Engi neer—The Use of Pyreteehalee ae Signals In the Naval Servlae. "Pop, pop," or perhaps a single "pop," sharp and distinct like that of a giant firecracker heard not only on tbe Fourth of July, but on every day ID tbe year, Sundays Included. What did It mean! And on almost any night aa 1 look out of my ndow 1 see tbe edge of tbe wood j>i* fields lighted up by red or yellow firework*. Why thla strange Illumination? Aa all these queer happenings took place on tbe railroad a few roda from my bouse 1 made inquiries of tbe rail way officials, and here an some Inter esting facts about ths use of these curious "fireworks." The general superintendent of the New Tork. New Haven and Hartford railroad explained aa followa: "Our rules provide for the use of de tonators. commonly known ss torpe does, as audible signals and of fusees' as visible signals. "These torpedoes ire attached tQ the top of the rsß on the enclneir"* side of tbe track by two small flex ible metal- straps, "wbieb ■bse «oaily bent around the ball of tbe rail. n* shown in the picture, and bold the torpedoes securely In place until ex-, pioded by tbe first train fmmlan a\rr this track. "Tbo explosion of one torpedo Is a signal to stop; tbe explosion of tWfc" not more thsn 200 feet apart to 0 sig nal to reduce speed aad look opt far a stop signal. "The fusees are of slmllsr construc tion to tbe well known Roman candle used for fireworks celebrations, ex cept that tbey born a steady flame without explosions. A sharp Iron spike at ths bottom end will usually stick. In the groand'or In the cross tie when thrown from tbe resr of s train and holds the fasee In an upright position, where It Is more plainly visible. "A fusee must be lighted and left by tbe flagman whenever a train to running on tbu "time" of another train or behind Its own time and under circumstances which cell for such pro tection. "A fusee on or near tbe track, burn ing red. must not be passed. When burning yellow tbe train may proceed with caution when the way la seen and known to be clear. Btandard fusees barn red for three minutes snd yel low for seven minutes sad eaa be seen for quite a distance. "You will gather from the above explanations tbat tbe red glare of a flpinlng fusee on or near the track warns the approaching engineer that a preceding train haa passed over his track lees than three minutes ahead of him. and under no circumstances must he pass this signal while burning red. When the flame turns to yellow be may proceed with caution, only as the wny Is seen and known to be clear, keeping In mind that when the fusee ( banged from red to yellow be was exactly three minutes behind s preceding train, which may bare stop ped within s short distance or may be proceeding at an unusually slow rate of npeed." The superintendent of ths Shore 11ns division, snotber branch of tbe same railroad, gives this additional detail re garding torpedoes: "When a train atops upon the main line and requires protection sgalnst a following trnin the flagman goes back a specified distance and places one tor pedo. He then continues a farther distance back, placing twp torpedoes. As soon ss tbe train be is protesting is ready to start the engineer blows s specified whistle signal, which Is a notice to ths fagsmu te retain to his train. On the way hart be picks np tbe one torpedo, leaving two on the rail to warn the engineer of an ap proaching train thst another train to a short distance ahead and to glvs ths flagman tlms to run beck sad gat aboard of Wsown train." Of ths ass sf fireworks as *dgaal| fa tbe navy tbe cblef of the bureau of coostructlos snd repair of ths navy de partment Washington, makes the fal lowing ststement: "All modem ihlpi «h ItM with electric signals, and the DM ot rack signals Is general In the naval ie> lie* ID tbe cmae of •mall Teasels bating DO electric instillation sad «Jso tor DM In case of tbe failure of the electric sig nals the navy bas • system ef colored stars Id connection with rackets tor the purpose of signaling.

Geeen Manuring—Soy Beans. - There has recently come in'o the farm economy of the Stale a very important new legume called the "soy bean," an. Importation from Japan, It seems. This plant ia variously known as the soy bean or stock pea and line ita greatest development, with us, In the eastern part of the State. Thla is not only one of our beat forage crops both for cattle and hogs, but la, at the same ttine, per haps, our beat green manuring crop. It carries a very high 1 per cetat. of nitrogen as well as a Mtye amount of other mineral plant foods and puts into the soil an, abundance of organic nuttier which quickly becomes active hu mus for the nso of growing cropa. Tbe Soy bean can generally be grown to good advantage on land too poor to grow a good drop of oOw peaa. Aa Mated above, the soy bean is one of olurvery best green ma nuring crops ou account of ita high fertility value. A ton of soy beau hay, aoeoniing to some ex pert analysts, eontaina 46 lba. of nitrogen, 13 lba. of phoaphat«, and 81 lba. of potash. It ia an aaay matter to grown 3 tonaof soy bean hay to the acre on land of average fertility. At this rate, should the crop be disced and plowed under then would be added jp the acre, 08 lbs. of nitrogen, 26 lba. of phos phate, and 42 lba. of potaah; or, on a field of ten acres there wonld be rendered available 980 lbs. of nitrogen, most of which would come directly from the sir; 200 lbs. of phosphate, and 420 lbs. of potaah, both of which would be rendered available from the solu tion of these materials from the surroundiug soil particles. In addition to these amounts of plant food, this crop would put into the ground an enurnious amount of organic matter which would, of itself, liberate still more of the inert plant -foods in the soil. The amount of plant food thus rendered available per acre la equal to that removed from tbe acre by a 100 buahel crop of corn, 100 buahel. crop of oats, a 50 buahel crop of wheat, or a 3 bale crop of cotton.
