THE MAN AT T
Xiii'e of tho Engine*
an J Xiesfx
Chicago '.
If you have ever gone to thc rai!- j
road station at night to take a limit- '
ed train perhaps you have noticed the I
great, throbbing locomotive that stands
puffing aL thc front as if impatiently j
waiting thc pull of the lever that
opens the th ret tie. If you approached
it you would find its great wheels tow
ered above you a foot or more, twelve
inches if you were six feet high. You
would see the great steel arms that
run to thc steam cylinders; you would
see the long glistening boiler: back of J
that, if you stretched your neck up
ward a little you would see thc engi
neer's cab and still further to thc rear
a sudden burst of light might indicate I
that the door of thc firebox had just
been opened to add fuel to thc roaring
blaze that was converting thc water
into steam.
Ahead of you, the railroad yards,
with their shining tracks would
stretch out in thc glare of thc electric
headlight. You might attempt to
Bpeak, too, but you would have to use
thc full force of your lungs to make
yourself heard, for thc then inanimate
thing is not one of silence.
Then you might discover tho engi
neer. In all probability he would be
moving quietly around the great mon
ster, his long oil can in one hand and
a wrench in the other, making his last
careful examination of his steed be
fore ho started out on the journey
on which he held the destinies of hun
dreds. If you oould see under his
cap, it is likely that you would find
his hair was gray or turning to that
color. Talk with him, and you will
find him calm, cool headed and capa
ble of great self-restraint. His sober
face would tell you that he realized
his responsibility; his eye, that he
was ready to meet any emergency of
it. Tho arm in that faded blue jacket
is always near tho throttle and air
brake; that eye ever on the rail.
Chicago is tho radiating as well as
objective point of scores of fast limit
ed/express trains. To the North, to
the South, to the East and to the
West, the great engines, pulling the
long, heavy trains, speed at a rate
that frequently ronches sixty miles an
hour, one mile in sixty seoonds.
Every railroad of inportanoe has its
limited trains; the rule of all is:
"Make the run ss quiokly and with
as few stop as is possibler* Realiz
ing that in the present day time is
money, the railroads do not hesitate
to spend money to sav$ time. The
moat powerful and most expensive lo
comotives are purchased. They are
indeed expensive necessities, their
original cost is excessive, running up
to $20,000 for one engine; the cost of
maintenance and repairs is heavy;
their consumption of coal ?absolutely
large, their average life on the limit
ed bot more than two years, when they
must be relegated to use ia pulling
slower trains, and finally to the sorap
iron pile.
The locomotives generally used on
the limited trains are compounds,
known as the Atlantie type. They dif
fer mostly from the ordinary locomo
tive in their great size and the fact
that they are compound engines, that
is, having the high and low pressure
cylinders, which permit a greater
speed to be attained.
The approximate weight of suoh a
type of locomotive is 20,000 pounds,
or 100 tons, exclusive of the tender.
The tender, when laden with coal,
weighs 150,000, bringing the total of
the locomotive and tender up to 350,
000 pounds, or 175 ton". The boilers
carry normally 220 pounds of steam.
SW! CORE
Like the running brook, the
red blood that flows through
the veins has to come from
somewhere.
The springs of red blood are
found in the soft core of the
bones called the marrow and
some say fed blood .also comes
from the spleen. Healthy bone
marrow and healthy spleen
are full of fat.
Scott's Emulsion makes new
blood by feeding the bone
marrow and the spleen with
the richest of all fats, the pure
cod liver oil.
For pale school girls and
invalids and for all whose
blood is thin and pale, Scott's
Emulsion is a pleasant and rich
blood food. It not only feeds
the blood-making organs but
gives them strength to do
their proper work.

fribune.
The tender holds 10 tons of coal and)
0,000 gallons of water. This is suih
cient supply of coal and water to make
one trip of four hours.
Thc locomotive is equipped with its
own electric lighting plant, which
operates exclusive of that used to il
luminate thc train. A small dynamo
furnishes enough power to run thc
powerful arc lamp used as the head
light and a dozen other incandescents
in thc engine cab itself.
Another all important part of thc
great engine is thc air pump. This,
too, is opeaatcd by stearn from the
boiler, and supplies thc- air for that
all important part of modern trans
portation-thc airbrake.
The Atlantic type jf engine differs
from other locomotives in thdt thc
engineer is provided with a place above
the fireman, whore he is away frora
the heat of thc furnace, although that
of being next to thc boiler is nearly as
great. The engineer's compartment
is a foot and a half wide and about
four feet in length. At one end is a
long window, which is closed when
tho wind is too strong, and a wider,
sliding window is built into'the side.
The sill in this is covered with stuffed
leather, and a Btool similarly uphol
stered is attached to thc side. It is
hangiog out of thia window, with his
hand in easy reach of thc throttle and
the airbrake that the engineer spends
most of his trip, anxiously peering in
to tho brilliant light ahead of him, his
eye ever on the rail to see that the
way ?B clear.
The greatest speed attained by any
limited trains that run into Chicago
on regular schedule is 70 miles an
hour, over a mile a minute. This
pace is kept up for a distancr of f>0
miles, and is made by one of the limit
ed trains. that run between Chicago
and Minneapolis, beginning at Auro
ra.
This speed, of course, is terrific; an
engineer could not keepit up during
his entire run. Four hours on an en
gine under the present system is quite
wearing enough. The constant fear
that something will happen while go
ing at this paoe causeo the iutense
strain on the man in whose hand rest
so many lives. The danger of another
train ahead, of a thrown switch, a
bowlder on the traok, or even a man,
ia oonatantly before him.
The engineer on such trains is high
er paid than those who run the small
er locomotives. The great strain and
oonslant peril to his life are the oause
of this. Engineers are paid so much
a mile for each trip, and their pay
cardo at the end of a month run from
$150 to $200. They pull their train
into the town at the end of their run
one day and pull another baek the day
following, each trip averaging four
hours. Eaoh man retains his own en
gine, and most of the engineers have
been in the eharge of the monster
since it came into possession of the
road. Thus they come to know their
giant servant aa thoroughly and love
it as* sincerely as if it were not an in
animate object. An engineer feels
queerly out of plaoe on a strange en
gine.
The vicissitudes of an engineer's
life are well told in the language of
one of the engineers who pulls a limit
ed train^on one of the Chicago-Minne
apolis lines. *
"When I get off my locomotive af
ter a run," he said, "I am as worn
out and exhausted as though, 1 had
put in 10 hours, at hard manual labor.
The intense strain and constant worry
in that cab is nerve wrecking, and it
often takes me a couple of hours to
get settled down enough to go to sleep
when I retire.c Keeping a constant
eye on the rail, the surging back and
forth of.the great engine, which, it
would seem to a stranger, was often
in danger of jumping right off the
track, particularly where the road bed
is ?rough, keeps the nerves keyed to
the highes t[pi tob, and to this is added
the-constantiweight of responsibility
of so many lives.
"Then, too,S there ?.is [the constant
fear that yon are going to run-down
somebody at a crossing, strike an in
toxicated man (dying on the traoks
withoutgevent fleeing him, and many
annoyances more or less great. It ia
anything but a pleasant sensation to
have reported to you at the end of
your, run, or when you reaoh the
roundhouse theSfnext * day, that yon
have killed some man.
"I had thia happen to me a few days
ago, and it made my blood run oold.
?s I was pulling into one of the sta
tions where we stopped I saw lying in
the traok what I supposed tobe aheap
of ashes and cinders. The eleotrio
lights of the station blurred the effect
of my headlight, and as the heap
looked just like an ash pile I paid no
attention to it. ? The next day it waa
reported to me that I had run over and
killed a man, intoxicated of cornie,
and it wai he that I tu?Ht-j??k for thc
?-li pile. Sac!) an occurrence docs
not make a man feel particularly good,
I can tell you.
"The wind, too, makes a good deal
ot' difference with a trip, lt is uot HO
bad when we arc facing the wind, for
we cut right through it then, but wheo
the wind strikes thc train sideways it
makeB the trip harder, and it is with
difficulty that we can keep up to the
schedule of the train. The wind,
though it would seem impossible,
pushes the train over far enough to
caui?c friction between the fiangCB of
the wheels and the Bides of the rails,
thus requiring more power to pull the
train.
"Then, too, there is always the fear
that something might go wrong with
the machine. Thc air pump might
break down, thc headlight dynamo
might get burned out, or something
mi^-'ht happen to the locomotive itself.
I can tell, however, by my ear when
anything is wrong with the engine,
notwithstanding the noise of the
train, thc shriek of the whistle, thc
chug-chug of thc air pump and the
crashing of the engine.
"Anybody who imagines that the
engineer has an easy snap ought to
try it for a while. Here I am a gray
haired man, having spent most of my
years attaining my present position,
and riskiotr my life nightly fora live
lihood. Tho engineer's berth is not
one of roses, nor his life full of hon
ey." _^ t ^_
Cotton Experiment Farms.
Mr. ll. C. Keenan, alderman from
Ward 4, has a number of cotton patches
on which he is making experiments
with thc hybridization of cotton seed.
A few of the bolls have opened, and
Mr. Keenan is very muoh pleased with
the outlook. Dr. Webber, the govern
ment expert under whose direction the
work has been conducted, will be here
in a few lays and will make a very
careful inspection of thc plants and
their fruit.
Much depends upon the success of
the experiments this year. The object
is to get a seed which will reproduce
itself and will produce a staple of not
less than an inch and three-eighths
in length. This is the fourth year,
and Mr. Keenan thinks that some of
tho plants are perfect specimens. If
suoh should be the case, the govern
ment might begin to send out seed for
planting next year, and the new vari
eties might revolutionize cotton grow
ing in the South.
The average staple of upland cotton
is only three-fourths of an inch. The
new plant would produce staple twice
that long and of superior texture.
Thia would increase the value of the
staple as a raw product to be manu
factured. The long staple cotton of
the sea island variety or of the Egyp
tian variety will not grow in the Pied
mont country, and the purpose of the
government has been, to breed the
long staple cotton on the stalk of the
upland variety in order to inorease its
hardiness and to get it to mature ear
ly, as the summers are shorter here
than on the coast islands.
There are several secondary objects
tobe accomplished ; one being to prop
agate a seed which is free from lint.
This will make it more venable to the
oil mills, for it will require IBBS ma
chinery in the handling. Mr. Keenan
has some varieties in the fourth year,
in whioh the seed is almost separate
from the lint, and the lint oan be taken
off without a parti?le adhering. In
theie patches are many kinds of freak
varieties, such as the brown cotton,
whioh is very much like wool.-Co

The Baltimore Sun Bays that at
Wesley Grove camp-meeting last
month thc subject of "eternal dam
nation*' was introduced by one of a
party of ministers and laymen who
were lounging about in one of the re
ception tents on Preachers' Row, en
joying secular relaxation and eooial
intercourse. One gentleman Addrcaa
ed Bishop W. A. Candler, of the
Southern Methodist Episcopal church,
and said :
"Bishop, surely you don't believe
that Ood would permit anybody to be
damned, do you ? Don't you think
God is too good for that ?"
To this Methodist with Universal
is t predilections the Bishop replied: ?
"I don't know about that. Biblical
history would seem to be to the con
trary. Acoording to the theory im
plied in what you eay all the wicked
people who were drowned in the flood
went straight to Heaven and to eter
nal rest, away from the oares bf this
world, while the only good man in the
whole world at the time was left
wading around in the mud." . ..

Circuiiistautlal Evideuce.
Not long ago a man was charged
with shooting a number of pigeons,
the property* f a farmer, bays an ex
change.
In giving his evidence the farmer
was exceedingly careful, even ner
vous, and the solicitor for the defense
endeavored to frighten him.
"Now," he remarked, "are you pre
pared to swear that this man shot
your pigeons?"
"I didn't ?ay he did 6hoot 'em,"
was the reply. "I said I suspected
him 'o doing it."
"Ab, now we are coming to it.
What made you suspect that man?"
"Weel, first I caught him on my
land wi' a gun. Secondly, I heerd a
gun go oil an' had seen some pigeons
in his pocket-an' I don't think them
birds flew there an' committed sui
cide."
He Wanted the Nickel.
The druggist's night bell rang furi
ously, and, with much ruffled temper,
thc worthy dispenser carno down in
his pajamas and opened the store
door, according to the Philadelphia
Ledger.
"I want a bottle of ginger ale,
jdease," requested the complacent in
dividual who stood without.
For a moment the druggist was in
clined to be personal, but then he re
flected that since he had come down
he might as well do business.
"Twenty cents, please." he said.
"Five cents will be allowed on the
bottle when returned."
Two hours later he was awakened
by another ring. Again he descend
ed, to the same complacent customer
at the door.
"Here's your bottle," he remarked.
"Gimme my five cents."
Mutual Mistake.
Little Wilie told his mother that a
lion was on the front porch, but when
an investigation was made it was
found to be thc Newfoundland dog
which had been newly sheared.
"Now, Willie," said his mother,
"you have told a very naughty story,
and you must go up to your room and
pray for forgiveness and remain there
until the Lord does forgive you."
Willie promptly obeyed, but he was
gone only a few minutes before he
came tripping back.
"Did the Lord forgive you?'' asked
his mother.
"Yea," was the reply, "and He
said He didn'tblame rn? much either,
'cause when He first saw it He sorter
thought it was a lion Himself."
Hie Mistake.
A parrot in a country district es
caped from its cage and settled on
the roof of a laborer's cottage. The
laborer had never seen such a thing
before and climbed up with a view
of securing it. When his head

roof, the parrot flapped a wing at
him and said, "What d'ye want r'
