Speaking of railroads in the streets of populous villages, our steam-railroad, whose track crosses some village streets, is required to keep constantly before its employees this iron-clad regulation:

No train or engine must run across Main street, Mill street or Portland street, at a speed greater than five miles an hour. Bell must be sounded continuously while passing through yard of Bridgton Lumber Co.
