CONCERNING OLD LOCOMOTIVES.

N. V. World.
"Trouhlo," said nn old ongineor, as ho
Uppod back from tho brass railing he was
polishing and pcorod nt tho olongatod reflection
ot himself on tho bright surface,
"of courso it Is troublo to keop a locomotive
clean, but thon it is troublo to shnvo
or for n woman to wear stays. Anywhero
ono takos pride in his wotk it is onsy to
enduro a llttlo inconvenience. Hut this
onglno can bo kopt In ordor with one-half
tho work required on oldor machines."
"Why is that?"
"Oh, tho tondoncios of modornjloconv
tlvo building is toward fower bright parts.
Twonty years ago nn ongineor spent half
his llfo polishing brnssos; now halt nn
hour a day will suillce to koop hi? engine
presontablo. Somo ot tho uowest
aro made with no bright parts
but this is carrying plainness to nn
extromo. Superintendents any thnt such
an engtno does not livo ns long ns a inoro
ornamental ono, and I guess that is the
fact. You bob an enginoqr must koop pol'
lshod surfacos cloan, whoroas a plain uv
chine Is allowod to rust and so starts on
tho road to tho scrap-heap, tho cemetery
of doad rolling stock."
"How long can n locomotive keop out ot
"It's nvorage llfo is about llftocn years,
though thoro aro motors on tho Brio llond
that wore put on in 1853 and 1850. Thoso
aro a llttlo docroplt, but thoy do their
work yot almost ns faithfully as they did
yoars dgo. Somo engines
smoko more than others, mid smoking in a
macblno as in men uses up vitality very
fast. No, I can't say that thoso -old Erlo
locomotives aro so very In
fact thoy aro not. Ono ot the most curious
things about tho locomotive Is that it was
born comploto. No Invention that I can
recall has boon the subject ot -so tow improvements.
Why, sir, if Ooorgo Stephenson,
tho Inventor of tho first railway motor,
woro to stop from his grnvo Into this
cab ho could run his train to Philadelphia
after flvo mlnutoo study.
"Why havo thoro been so few Improvements?
From nn onglnocr's point of vlow,
I should say becauso tho machlno Is ported.
yoars ago, long before
the first onglno was Introduced In this
country, John Stavous, In applying to tho
Now Jersoy Loglslaturo for permission to'
run stouni carriages, saidt 'I can soo nothing
to hludor a ctonm carrlago from moving
on rails at tho rato ot 100 miles nil
hour.' Of course ho did not accomplish ull
that he claimed. The first onglno was
rought hero In 1829 by Horatio Alton, was
rlod on tho Dolawaro and Hudson HIver
Hoad and provod too heavy. Thon our
Amorlcau artisans began work on a
at Wostl'olut, N. Y., and 'urnsrl
out tho "Phoonlx," tho first built in thio
country. This provod outlroly too small
for work, so heavier ones wore built, hut
none over ontorod practical sorvico. Hut
tu 1832 Govornor Do Witt Clinton superintended
tho construction of a buccossful locomotive
named aftor htm, whloh pllod between
Schenectady and Albany on the
Mohawk and Hudson Road.
"Tho Baldwin Works of
Philadelphia, claim? to have built tho
fourth machine mado horo. This was used
on tho Philadelphia and Gormantown
Hallroad in 1833. Four yoars ln,tor tho
Rogers Works of Pnterson, N. J. ..after two
years' labor, completed its first onglno."
"And you say thoso woro good motors V
"Certainly. There havo been a tow
minor Improvements on thoin, not many.
Thoy"5avp nddoil a cab for us follows and
n pilot (cow-catcher), Increased the driving
wheels from one pair ,o foui or six,
and In the Internal economy added tho
multitubular boiler and tho chlmuoy exhaust.
Thoso nro tho ptlnclpal Improvements,
and on tho ontlro locomotive thoro
aro very tow patents. The old machines
made almost as good timo as tho present
avorago, As for tho few patented
builders say tho etigtuos can bo
mado almost as woll without thorn. Tho
onglno of is a marvol of simplicity
"Havo all attempts at Improvement
"Most of tho monoy nfiont in radical
changes has been wasted. Tho Fontnino
onglno, nnmod after its Inventor, which
was to mako eighty miles nil hour with one
pair of driving wheels placed above the
other, has not, it Is said, made good Its
claim, and (he Holland naphtha-burning
machine, iuvoutod by Mr. Conant and
to burn uniithn and water, Is now
lying Idle In tho Brio yards at X'atersou.
Several trials failed, It Is claimod, to Induce
tho onglno to work satisfactorily. As
far as brass and nickeled work goes tho
machlno Is a gllttorlng success.
"Tho economizing of fuel has ulways
boon aimed at, and ou tho Reading Road
dirt-burning machluos nro ttsod to
tho mountains of othorwlso valueless
coal-dust that accumulate at tho
mouths of tho mines. In cities wlioro tho
smoko Is objected to, somo companies have
been obliged to resort to using expensive
coke. TJioro aro at present sixteen
works In the country, not Including
the shop3 ownod by railway companies.
Pennsylvania has flvo of those.
Now Jorsoy and Massachusetts throo each,
Now Yoik two, Rhodo Inland, Now
and Malno ono oacli. Thoso works
glvo employment to 14,000 men and oyory
year add about 2,C00 locomotives to tho
IM,000 now In daily use. At present five
men havo to work an entire year to complete
one ot tlieno huge mnchlnos, The
your 'just past has been a som'owhnt dull
ono for manufacturora nnil a majority ot
the shops aro not now working full time.
"Aro nil ont;lnoors s woll Informed; I
I think so It Is our business to know tho
history of our onglno, and wo cortnlnly
liuvo to know how our locomotive is
built. You will nlways II ml that a good
mochanlo makes a good ongineor." And
tho grimy driver disappeared under his
onglno and squlrtod half n pit., of oil from
tho olongated spout of a
oil-can Into nn Invlsllilo aperture.
THE THINKIST AND HIS THINK.
IIIU Nje'w Iiiicld DcAcrlpllon or tlie
Mrcliniilsiiii 01" the HI I nil.
What n wonderful thing Is thought!
What n complex pleco of mechanism is tho
onglno wo call our thinker, and what a
glorious result is tho think itself aftor it has
Just been thuukl There It lies, warm and
fresh from tho thlnkographor, full of llfo,
now laid Idea that may change the career
of a natloi) or knock tyranny higher than
What, thou, is an ideal Is ltnot the ovtui
oiConfc germ of tho wherefore, floating
through space and at last caught up and
germinated in tho bosom of tho inlollectual
forthwith? I do not say that it in, but is it
not? Scientific truths aro flint but theorhs,
attorward demonstrated, tested by time and
at last thoy pillars upon which
other scientiflo truths may rost, until
thoy constitute an architectural pllo,
as strong and as symmetrical as tho plnster
cast of a duck's foot In the mud.
Thought, howovcr, must bo coupled with
enorgy and Industry, or It may como to
naught. Many thoughts protubo Into tin
moist spring air only to be guawod off by
tho cut worm of neglect or ilowlv eatea bj
the srjuashbug of idlo speculation. I give-know
n man whoso brain was ono of tho
most active ot his time, and yot his namo Is
not known boyond tho limits of his own
school dlstriot. Whon his brain began to
act, and as It woro to glvo down, you could
almost hoar It. Ha had a fine scholarly
mind, and yet his liver was torpid. To
show how nature delights to deal with incon
gruities, I nood only say that although this
man was a post and an artist in his mind, ho
no plo with a knlfo and Anally died In obscurity.
Ho was not practical with all his
groatnoss, nud ho walked down tho long
vMa of llfo holding up his pantaloons by
means of a shiuglo nnil I How often is this
tho case. Why should men with tho greatest
mental endowments bo also most prone to
gastric occontricitiosi And yet it Is so. I
am that way myself.
Sometimes I am temptod to repine, and to
ask: Why should I rtm all to soul and to
brain, nnd bo top heavy with intolloct, nnd
yot bo tho plaything of bilious collol It Is
buttbo natural penalty attached to eminence
and intellectual superiority. And yet at
times I am almost discontentod. I forget
this great law of compensation, or wish that
nature had endowed 1110 with a plain
brain and more gonial vitals, instead
of such n waste of brain along witli a stubborn
and short-sighted liver.
Thought, however, Is a great succoss.
Without it wo grope through tho world,
staggering into tho legislature at lost, whore
wo sink Into oblivion. If we scorn to develop
our thlnkors, what do wo liecomof
Wo bocomo anonymous and indefinite. Tho
thlnkor muse bo oxerclsod In ordor to make
it grow. Exorcise dovolopcs the thlnkor as
it doos tho biceps musclo. Wo soon learn to
rldo tho blcyclo If we practlco constantly,
and so may wo train ourselves to straddlo
tho baroback of tho frisky young fdeu, and
at last mako It subservient to our will.
Wo should early accustom ourselves to
think, so thnt when wo on Ivo at mlddlo
ngo, If wo havo on Idon, It will
not glvo us a ncnous shock nud
food us Into 11 pi emature grave. Those who
think much tit last become thoughtful, and
it is surprising to what an extent this is tho
case, while on tho other hand the rloso
human nnturo will be struck with
tho fact that those who roll up their thinkers
in a napkin and put them away in tho
nt last become notlcoably
thoughtless. While ut first blush this statement
may appear doubtful, careful observation
will demonstrate jtn thorough reliability,
Givotho think plenty ot fresh air nud
exercise", or nt last It will most assuredly
curl up and die. Bill Nvk.
