nothing but what it iVir.ur.c. Destructive only of

highest moral and in.elkctual attributes of our

Tiik journals ot France are required to

CAN RAILROAD TRAINS MAKE A
MILE A MINUTE?
An old engineer on the hne railway de
clares that a mile a minute is beyond the
capacity of locomotives used on American
railroads. He gives an instance id his own
experience where he made neatly a mile a
minute, nd is absolutely, certain that h
could not havo gone any faster or even maid
tained tho speed he had attiined.androuch
ed the tnd f a - fifty milb
run alive. An engineer can't breathe while
going at such a furious rate.
A Long Island engineer agrees with
tho Erie man. Ho has often heard, he says,
of the milo-a-uunuto runs; but bis twenty
years' service ut tho throttle valve assures
Lim of tho falsity of all such stories. Much
prominence was given to the run made by
engineer Frazor, in 18C2, between Suffern
ami Jersey City. It was. reported in the
papers at tho .time, (and has been. con
sidered a marvel ever sineo) that the thirty
two miles was made in twenty-eight min
utes. Tho Long -Island engineer was a
passenger on that very train, and lie de
clares that they were thirty-five minutes,
making the 33 miles. "Cheeky as Mr.
Frazer is," continues tho Long Island man,
"he'll not deny this assertion. The engine
J. L. Colt was in use, and she certainly
made remarkable time; but at no time did
she reach a mile a minute."
But railroad engineers, like doctors and
preachers and other people, disagree most
palpably. An engineer of tho Pennsyl
vania Central rushes into print, ami declares
that any flvo foot driver is capable of more
than a mile a minute. "I should," says lie,
"like to give some facts in regard to a run
made by Joe Losie, with engine 07. Ou
the 10th of October, 187-1, a special train
with members of the Pennsylvania Coal
company on board leftEaston at 1 :25 p. in.,
and arrived in Jersey City at 2:33Jj. De
ducting ten minutes for three stops, the run
was made in one hour and eighteen min
utes, the fastest part of the run being made
between White House and North Branch.
where tho train made four miles and ninc
tentns in three minutes ami fifty-seven sec ¬
onds, or at the rate of 74 o-J-7'J miles per
While the public has been given to the
belief that u mile a minute is among the
possibilities of railroad travel, common
credulity is not equal to the woik of gulp
ing down the story last above related.
Nearly seventy-five miles fcn hour ! To ac
complish that ipeed a five foot driver (and
the same engineer declares that a five foot
driver is capable of ;.s great a rate of speed
as a seven foot six-inch one) would
be required to spin around
at the rate of four hundred
and forty revolutions a minute, or nearly
eight revolutions to the second. The trucks
would be compelled to get ulong at the
rate of a thousand revolutions a minute !
To accomplish a mile a minute a five-foot-driver
must make three hundred and fifty
two revolutions, and the trucks over seven
hundred revolutions. It is, if we taku
"Familiar Science" as authority, to be
questioned whether the power of cohesion
in the particles of iron or steel, will sustain
such a raekct. A wind that courses along
at the rate of seventy-five or even sixty
miles an hour, is equal to the work of up
rooting trees, unroofing burns and ol playing
eternal smash with things generally; but
w hether or nvt railroad trains may safely
move at an equal rate of speed, is a matter
that has certainly had a practical demons
tration. The trouble seems to be thut the
engineers can't agree upon results.

To do his best to keep up with current

, A stating an important truth, and one
it is well to have understood, I copy
from the daily Post, Democratic, of this
city, the following: . '
"There is no doubt thut the superior in
telligence of American mechanics, due
largely to oursplendid free school facilities,
is one of tho principal causes of the rapid
improvement in our manufactures. The
highest authorities in England grumblinly
concede that in almost every article mide
from iron qr steel, from a half-ouucp casting
to the heaviest locomotive or massive engine
we are ahead of the Britishmanufacturcis.
The Swis9 and German reports of our ecu
tennial assigned as the reason of the high
average character of the American work,
brain in the workmen. And they simply
told the truth."
RECALLED TO LIFE BY A BIIIUKK.
The recall of a country girl to lite by
sister's shriek is one ot the local topics of
the Journal, of Evansville, Ind. The young
lady nad been quite ill tor weeks, and wu
thought to be dying ol consumption. She
had grown so weak and emaciated that her
stren-'tu was no more than r child s. Ouv
afternoon, while lying upon her couch, her
sister came in Iroin a walk and sat iy the
bedside. A conversation began, and tho in
valid began to speak. As she uttered the
Jirst word, she felt a bewildering weakness,
and a sinking flutter of her breath. Il-r
eyes became fixed, the lower- jaw dropped
as in death, and the body became motion
less, while consciousness disappeared. Tin
sister leaped from her seat and ran to the
door shrieking to her mother that her sister
was dead. The sound of the shriek pene
trated through the veil of death, and roused
the sinking faculties. The blood, which
had congested the luns, was sent back by
the nervous shock,' and, gathering her
strength by a strong effort of the will, tin;
invalid opened her eyes and awoke to life
again, breathless and amaed at the tliril
ling peril she had escaped.
