BoMB of the western railways of the United States have in use a weed-burning apparatus, one of which worked over 900 miles of road last year at a cost of less than 2Jdol. per mile. The apparatus comprises a lamp using oil vapour. This vapour is kept close to the tracks by a shield over it. The intense heat burns the weeds between the rails. Once at work tha shield is lowered within 4in. of the rail, and when not in use it is raised to 18in. above the rail. The operation is somewhat slow, only about H miles an mmr being covered.
