LIGHT RAYS CONTROL TRAIN
TO PREVENT WRECKS
German engineers are testing a
llghtray safety-coiitrol system for
railroads, say Popular Mechanics
Magazine. A selenium cell is an im
portant unit in the apparatus and
along the right of way are mirrors, '
of special construction and said to
be reliable under all weather con
ditions. Hays emanating from the ]
locomotive cab strike the mirrors
as the train proceeds. If there is
danger ahead or the next block is
closed, the rays affect the selen
ium cell in such a way that an
electric circuit is closed and the
train’s brakes are automatically ap
plied. The train is brought to a stop
gradually by varying the distance
between the mirrors. The system
has been recommended for Installa
tion at curves and other places
where slower speeds are in keeping
with greater safety.

The country seems aghast when
it contemplates the fact that in the
last presidential campaign the Dem
ocrats spent $5,500,000 trying to
elect their ticket, while the Repub
licans spent an equal amount, says
the Elizabethtown <Ky.) News, and
it goes on to give some history with
“When we consider the purchas
ing power of the dollar lias decreas

this is a trivial amount compared
with Use campaign fund ol the Re

Bryan for the presidency Accord
ing to the biography of W. J.
Bryan, which is being published in
the Liberty Magazine, the Repub

while the Democrats only had $442.
000. The public can have some idea
of this enormous corruption fund
of 1896 when a dollar thefi was as
big as a cart wheel, while now it
is no larger than a watch wheel.
$16,000,000 was more than both Re
publicans and Democrats spent in
1928 and measured by its purchas
ing power then, as compared to
1928, it was three to four times as
much as both parties spent in the
“Most oi the money spent in tne
Smith and Hoover race was ex
pended for publicity and nation
wide hook-ups over the radio, while
In the 1836 campaign most of the
$16.SO0,00O was a slush fund either
to corrupt the voters or to falsify
the election returns. The wonder of
Bryan's 'first battle,” as he called
it, must grow amusingly in the
public mind when the tremendous
odds which he faced are contem
plated. In addition to this $10,500,
000 slush fund nearly every fac
tory in the country put up the
sign. “This factory will be closed
if Bryan Is elected president," for
the purpose of intimidating em
ployes from casting their ballots
for the brilliant orator of the
Platte. Nearly all of the big news
papers were controlled or bought,
and used relentlessly against Mr.
Bryan's candidacy. Every railroad
in the country employed all of their
coercive power to beat Bryan,
“In spite of everything that was
done and all the fraud that was
committed, Bryan only lacked the
electoral votes of a few states to
win the presidency. If he had car
ried Maryland, West Virginia, Ohio,
Indianna and Kentucky he would
have been elected and it was in
these five states that most of the
enormous corruption fund was con
centrated. The Democrats had no
money, the Republicans had “money
to burn." When we look back over

I have three little girls, and when I
see one of them fretful and ‘droopy’
in the morning, I begin treating her
with a course of Black-Draught. It
is not long until she is lively and
well again. I make a tea of It and
give It to the children, as they take
it best that way.

up with a bad taste in my mouth
and feel sluggish and dull, I know
it is time for a dose of Black
