25 years ago. The loss is $2,500.

A VANDERBILT INVENTION.
Locomotive Tender Which Railroad
Experts View With Favor.
Young Cornelius Vamleiblit. whose
locomotive tirchox rs now Iwing adopt
ed by m:mv of the railroads of the
couutry, has, according to the New
York World, also invented and patent
ed a new tyie of locomotive tender.
It looks entirely different fruiu the
ordinary locomotive tender. The water
tank Is not rectangular, but cylindrical.
It Is built of steel one-quarter of an
inch thick and is eight feet In diameter
and twenty-three feet lo:ig. It Is sup
ported on u nnrrow frame. I'nder the
middle of the tank there is a plate
steel saddle, whieb supports the rear
end i f the eoal hoier. wldch c.nipns
the forward 4ia!f of the tender.
The coal hopper is of tho ordinary
rectangular form, but has a sloping
bottom so arran-d as t drop fuel
down to the foet plate. The wheels are
of east Iron, with st-el tires. The
tender, liht. weigh 47."" iounds.
When fully loaded t!i weight is 03
tons, or 13.f ) p Minds. The Vander
bilt tender w 111 carry 1 1 tons of -oaI
and 7.O00 gallons of water.
The railroad experts say the Vander
Mlt tender of cylindrical form i the
strongest that i!i l devised. Its
transverse strength Is so great, that,
although twenty-s'x feet long. It will
carry Its load of twenty-nine tons of
water without auy center support.
Consequently the under frame can lie
made llshtc. The .let saving in weight
Is about seven and a half tons. An
other advantage Is the coal carried
next to the engine.
