Tliey Jlnit Be Handled With the Same
Cure ns a Horse.
It may not be generally known that
locomotives intended ror express trains
require as much training, in their way. Tor
fast running ns do race horses. The Penn
sylvania Railroad Company builds its
own engines, and those built for express
(rains ere known as class P.
They are very large, and built, with
slight variations, after the pattern of the
big English engine iraported'into tills coun
try several years agcr, and which at that
time was a curiosity iu its way. When
one or these big engines was taken out
of Ihe shops to be placed ou the road, in
stead of pulling It to the work it Is in
tended ror at once, it is run ror two
or three weeks ou some one or the local
branches, in order (o train it, so to speak,
ror raster running.
By this meaus all the bearings and jour
nals connected with the running gear be
come settled to Ihelr work; for, should
anything about the new machine not work
harmoniously, there Is ample time to ad
just the defect- No. 180, of class P, will
be ruuning one day on an accommodation
train, but t ill soon be-flying over the road
as an express at the rate. In many places,
or a mile a minute.

and secured lor them the ictury.
From the fact that they dispersed the ni
rates or the seas they were regarded as tho
patrons or the mariner. Een sacred his
tory bears witness to their rame, for thu
vessel which bore St. Pau I to Rome after his
shipwreck had as its "sign" "Cjstor and
Pollux." It is a curious coincidence that
Pollux is one of the stars used in naviga

a ship at sea.

It is to be hoped that many persons took
the pains to look for Venus in the daytlmo
lost month. She may still be seen when thu
sky is perfectly clear, but it will be neces
sary to cstauiisn some guiuc ol position be

her motion westward. It is said that tho
first Napoleon was delighted to observe A
Venus shining upon him at midday npon tho
occasion or a fete in his honor, and that tho
attending crowds regarded her as tbe star
or the conqueror.
