The Engineer Wm Anxlone to Get Home,

He had stood on the footboard for many
years, and on nearly every road in the
sountry he could tell where were located
the bai curves, the weak trestles and give
the hisi ory of nearly every town of impor
tance. He was a library of thrilling stories
and an encyclopedia of railroad informa
tion. 1 lis friends and acquaintances liked
to hear him talk. The veteran of the throt
tle was one of a crowd that was standing
at the vest end of the Union station train
' The most startling experience I ever
had in my life," he was sayinir, was at

and so far as machinery is concerned it is
made as s ue as possible, but a good many
people ha--e been killed there on the double
tracks. 1 hey sav that on a dark night, at
a point rifc ht around the curve on the Cin
cinnati tricks, me shadow ot a woman
stooping over the tracks can sometimes be
seen. Th'ire was a woman killed there
once when she was trying to pull her hus

back there every once in awhile. But 1

"Suddenly a red light flashed across the
track on ahead, and then two or three more
began bobbing around. I whistled for
brakes and then reversed, and we stopped
about a hundred feet from the first light.
I got down off the engine to oil up, when
just as suddei ly as the red lights appeared
they went out of sight and in their stead
were at least 1 alf a dozen white lights.

Messrs. John Ohlweiler and Gustave
Stengel returned this morning from their
prospecting tour among the mining
localities of Colorado in which they and
Other Rock Island citizens are interested.
Sheriff Gordon, who accompanied the
Rock Island party remains a month yet.
Mr. Ohlweiler stated this morning that
he was more than pleaded with the pros- j
pect and property of the two Rock
Island companies in which he is inter
ested. Bjth mines are within SO miles
of Denver, the mines of the Rock
Island Gold Mining company beicg sit
uated in Boulder county, there being
three claims known respectively, as tbe
Biker, Senator and Opbeim while the
silver claim of the Rock Island Mining
snd Milling Company is at Hard Scrab
ble creek. Mr. Oiilweiler personally
inspected all the mines, and ore taken
from tbe gold mine was found to aver
ege $157 to the ton, while a mine whose
mineral pays $50 to tbe ton is considered
good property in Colorado.
The VnfT Opera Company.
"The Queen's Mate," by tbe Duff
Comic Opera company, made a pro
nounced bit at the Davidson last night.
It is by Lecacq and Jacobowski, the
libretto by Harry Paulton, and had -not
been seen here before. It is bright and
winning musically, while the line: are
keen, witty and original. Mis Bert
Tarn, in the principal, was at her very
bet. Her leading numbers are espec
ially adapted to ber voice and she acted
with charming grace. Miss Girard also
had a pleasing role and sung and danced
delightfully. With Mr. Carroll, upon
whom devolved the responsibility for
the fun, the handsome lady worked ad
mirably. Cirroll has the best role of
its kind seen here for seasons. In it he
is inimitably amusing. The chorus is
one of the best trained and competent
r beard In Milwaukee. Miss Cogan
performed a difficult character
'ning a number of encores.

tbe Burtis at
.Major Ueneral i'.itnck Maxwell, in an
article on how r.tiglish is sometimes
mutilated by the smart baboo and the
intelligent foreigner, gives an example
taken from a memoir of the late Honor
able Just ice OoinKkul Chunder Mookerjee,
by Mohendro Nauth Mookerjee, his
nephew, printed at Calcutta. Describing
the grief of the family on the death of his
uncle the author says, "The house pre
sented a second Isabel or a pretty kettle of
fish." Further on, describing the career
of the justice, hi says, "His first business
on making nu income was to extricate his
family from the difficulties in which it
had been lately er.warped, and to restore
happiness and sunshine to those sweet and
well beloved fact - on which he had not
seen the soft ami fascinating beams of a
simper for many a grim visaged year."
In another place, "This was the first
time that we see ii pleader taking a sent
on the Hengal lcgir-lative council solely by
dintofhisownleg.il weapon; and he was
an au fait, and therefore undoubtedly
transcendental lti -re to the council."
Again, "Justice Mxikerjee very well un
derstood the boot of his client, for which
he would carry a logomachy its if his wheel
of fortune depended upon it. His elevation
created a catholic ravishment throughout
the domain." In a touching sketch of th
justice's personal appearance the author
prettily observes, "k"hen a boy he was fila
mentous, but gradually in the course of
time he became plump as a partridge."
Itock Salt in Kngland.
The accumulation of extensive oeds of
rock salt must he attributed to the natural
process of evaporation beneath a torrid sun
in the Trias days, hen a series of salt
lagoons, communicating with the sea, were
dried up and incrusted with salt after th
fashion of many of the so called Australian
lakes of the present are.
The cavities at the i.epth of 100 feet have
been caused by the dissolution of local
areas of rock salt th-ough the action of
percolating water from the higher level of
the Hunter sandstone. This accounts for
the great force with w iich the brine risi
when the stored supply is tupped, and th
sulwidence of land corresponds very closely
with the extent of the 'rtvities from which
the salt has been evaporated. Droitwich
is situated exactly in tl is synclinal trough
ot tne mas, and con-icquently there is
hardly a straight wall or chimney iu the
lower town. Gentleman's Magazine.
