Engineer Charlie IIogn is the re

has repeatedly broken toe world's
records for :'ast time in driving' a lo
comotive oi the New York Central.
His skill and his remarkable record
attracted tLe attention of the direc
tors of the Mew York Central, and, as
a result, he las been appointed travel
ing eng-ineer for that road. He is to
have full supervision of the training1 of
New York Central engineers, and is
expected to mpart to them the secret
of his sn cess how to get the greatest
speed out of an engine without
straining the machinery or endanger-
His methoJ is simple and practicaL
He first eximines his engines thor
oughly, often spending four or five
hours minutely examining every bolt
and nut. li s personal examination
assures him of the condition of his
steed and gives him confidence. Then
he pulls the throttle wide open and
regulates ths speed with the reverse
lever. He feeds the water slowly,
slows down foing up grade and runs

courteous and fearless, and un.ir hk

RED SNOW AND COTTON.
Two CnrioKities of Nature Which It la
Difficult to Kxplaln.
Captain R ss discovered on tti
shores of Baffin's bay a range of cliffs
extending for eicht miles which vroro
covered with red snow of a brilliant
hue, and some limes as much as twelve
feet in depth. Colored snow storms
were recorded as lonncvi as ih sivth
century, and a shower of red hail was
mentioned by .lumboldt as havinc otv
Cdrred in Palermo. In lsos red snow
fell to a dentil of over five feet in
Carciola. Gern anv.

lemon and stra .vberry ice cream. In
the first volume of K:inp's "Arcti.. Ftr.
ploratiocs" it is stated that when the
ships passed the '"crimson cliffs of
Sir John Ross" the patches of roo
snow could be seen at a distance of
fuilv ten miles.

THE V!S:ON Cr BIRDS.
It Is Often Mirr wroplc and More Acute
Birds have vt rv acute vision, per
haps the most a ?ute of any creature,
and the sense is also more widely dif
fused over the r?tina than is the case
with man: const quently a bird can see
sideways as weK as objects in front of
it. A bird sees showing great un
easiness in consequence a hawk long
before it is visible to man; so, too,
fowls and pigco is find minute scraps
of food, distinguishing them from
what appear to us exactly similar
pieces of earth r gravel.
Young chickens are also able to find
their own food knowinr its position
and how distinct it is as soon as they
are hatched, wh ireas a child only very
gradually learns either to see or under
stand the distance of objects. Several
birds apparently the young of all
those that nest on the ground can see
quite well directly they come out of
the shell, but the young of the birds
that nest in trees or on rocks are born
blind, and have to be fed.
Like Father Like Son.
A young man returned home a few
days ago from a trip to South Africa
for his health anl in narrating his ad
ventures to his f;ither, he told him he
had bought a silver mine for S.1,000.
"I knew they'd swindle you," ex
claimed the old man. "So you were
fool enough to b ly a humbug mine?''
Ye?: but I didn't lose anything. I
formed a company and sold half the
stock to a Lo idoner for tti,.i00."
"Y you did?" gi sped the old man, as
he turned white. ' I'll bet I'm the
one who bought it" 'T know you
are," coolly observed the young man,
as he crossed his legs and trio! to ap
pear very much at home.
More Cat Than Villas-.
A tourist had visited a small historic
town. He was shown the massive
wall that surrouiided it and the im
mense town gates, ' n need to be
very careful," he said, gravely, to Vhe
official who was his escort. "Why

are open the village may get 1 st. "
