Friday afternoon engine No. M. ou the
Illinois Central railroad, was receiving
coal from a car standing below the turn
table. When the men had supplied her,
one of the party, named John Mahoney,
boarded her with the intention of runuliii
her along for tho punose of giving coal
to others tluit were standing near. John
is no engineer, but he thought he knew
enough about an engine to run her a few
yard', so he tried It. He pulled the
throttle valve wide open, the engine
started, and when John thought he had
gone far enough he tried to stop her, but
she kept ou going, nor did
she slacken her speed until .she had
reached the turn-table, whore she Jumped
the track, and ran acro-i the turn-table
on the planks, tearing them Into splin
ters as she went. The next thing iu her
way was engine No. 1 1; she went against
the rear end of her with a crash, banging
her tender and back truck up pretty bad
ly, and burying her own drivers iu a big
pile of cinders. When theengine started
for the turn-table, John jumped off,
stood and watched her movements, and
when he realized what had happened,
went to the shop, got his coat, and re
marked to Mr. Wallace, the head man at
the shops, that "he didn't believe he
cared about working any more ; he
didn't feel well at all."
