Electric Freight Engines.
The three electric locomotives being
constructed by t ie General Electric
company to haul t ars through the Belt
railroad tunnel are nearly completed.
The machinery is about finished, and
the generators are well under way. The
locomotives will be of 1,200 horsepower
each and will comist of three separate
trucks coupled together to form one
motor. The weig'it on drivers will be
100 tons, and the i. umber of drivers to
each locomotive w.ll be 13. The maxi
mum weight of freight trains to be
hauled is placed at 1,200 tons, which can
be carried at a spetd of 15 miles an hour;
maximum weight of passenger train,
5(3 tons; speed, 30 miles an hour.
Each axle of the 1 icomotive has mount
ed upon it a gearless motor flexibly con
nected to the driving wheels, and means
are provided for controlling the motors
and couuuutatiug them, so that high ef
ficiency can be atta ned at nearly all rates
of speed by running the motors either in
series, multiple series or multiple, ac
cording to the lo:td to lie hauled and
speed desired. The current will bo sup
plied to the motors from the generators
by the regular trobey wire, with ground
return through the rails. Where switches
and sidings occur i pecial arrangements
will be made to prevent the trolley by
any chance from jumping the wire,
To lie Ttrrled Alive.
The mind reader, A. J. Seymour, is
generally known in Illinois, and his pro
posed attempt to 1 e buried and remain
in the ground while a crop of barley is
grown on his gr.ive creates interest
throughout the stte. Dr. E. C. Dunn
of Rockford has been selected by Sey
mour as manager. Dr. Dunn says:
"There is no qi estion that this feat
can lie performed. I have seen it per

at Allahabad, Delh and Benares."
Foreveral days Seymour will be fed
upon a diet of fat and heat producing

An Old Carpet Worth S5,ft00.
The longer a carpet is used in the
coiners' department at the United States
mint the more it is worth. Wear and
tear do not diminish its value. Yester
day a thick woolen carjiet that has been
on the coiners' floor for seven years was
taken up and carefully cremated. The
precious ashes wer ; scrupulously gath
ered together, as if iliey were the relics
of some departed saint, and by an elab
orate refining pnx ess the government
recovered '2'J ounci a of gold, worth ovei
S-Vi'lO. The metal had been deposited
there by the iiu'initt simal abrasions and
disintegrations of tl e yellow metal while
lieing converted from bullion into coin.
Even the heavy g oves of the men who
haitd'i bullion are incinerated, and the
gold is brought bad: to Uncle Sam's cof
fers. Even the sun ke from the furnaces
used for melting tie metal is made to
redeliver the treasure with which it is
trying to esca'H", and from the soot in
tl chimney cnnni:ig little bars of the
yellow stuff are secured. San Francisco

Two years ago John P. Elmborgof St
Paul was injured while boarding a cable
car. He sued the company for damages,
but lost his ease ( wing to insufficient
witnesses. A & w nights ago ho dreamed
that he met frieni who told him that
the names of the vitnesses of the acci
dent would bo foun 1 on the back of a
letter received two days before tho acci
dent occurred, tog tlier with the state
ment that the casualty was the result ol
tho gripman's carelessness. He also
dreamed that all the witnesses against
him would commit i nicide. The follow
ing morning Elmb rg found the letter
described, and on its back were the
names of 10 witnesses. Four of these
have committed suicide, and two more
witnesses have diel natural deaths.

The Energetic Camera Fiend.
For several days an enterprising pho
tographer from Kansas lias had a masked
camera so arranged in a tent at the main
crossing into the Cherokee Strip that he
can ake a negative of everybody pass
ing without his knowledge. As the
department holds that every person who
now goes upon the strip is a "sooner" and
loses his right to take land there, these
negatives will become very valuable evi
dence against those going in now to hunt
out good claims, and the owner of them
can command a good price from each
subject to have his negative destroyed,
or can sell the same to contestors or the
government attorneys employed to hunt
up evidence against perjurers. Guthrie
