Jliss Frances Benjamin Johnston of
Washington City, who may bo called the
pioneer of newpaper photographers, and
ho has probably used the camera on
more public personages; for newspaper re
production, than any other perbon in the
country, was in St. Louis for a few das
Jait week In the course of her tour of
Western States in the lnteret of seeral
well-known Eastern publications.
She was a guest of honor at a reception
held at Strauss's studio Thursday, and
met several local artis5s. iicr own w,ork
with the camera was much admired.

graphic work In serial and dally news
paper t ork.
Beginning her career with work for a
newspaper syndicate at "Washington, it
nas curiously enough through George
Grantham Bain of St. Louis that Mis
Johnston was enabled to utilize her artis
tic faculty with commercial buccefs.
In passing down a New Vork street her
attention was attracted some jears nco
by the feign of Demorest's Monthly Maga
zine. Sho decided to show some photo
graphs to the editor, who was Mr. Bain,
and he asked her if she had cer attempt
ed to do any writtns ln""Connectlon with
her photographic work. Sho replied: "No
I hac not, but I can."
Then the editor told her he" was about to
send out for a series of illustrate nrticl-i
on just how Undo Sam manufactured his
money. The financial title seemed at
tractive at least.
Miss Johnston said she would under
She went to tho Philadelphia mint and
then through the Bureau of Emigrating
and Printing at Washington. To shew
how early that nil was in the hlstorv of

This was but the beginning.
Magazines Hki the Cosmopolitan, Hi'.r
pers, the World's Work, the weekly pa
pers, and then In the course of time the
dallies adopted the use of the new Ftvlo
of illustration, and Miss Johnston's work
has since appeared everywhere.
One of the interesting -'"odes In her
career was the "assignment," as newspa
per persons call the command of their su
periors, to proceed to Europe and secure
the first pictures of Admiral Dewey on
his return from -Manila.
The naval hero was coming "home and
the American newspapers were without
photographic material of the hero or the
vhip upon which he was returning to re
ceive his countr's congratulations.
ARTIST TO DEWEY.
Hurrjlng down to Oyster Bay, Gov
ernor Rooseelt came out of the surf In
his bathing suit to give her a card of In
troduction to Admiral Dewey. With this
he hurried tho next morning aboard an
outgoing transatlantic Meamer. She ar
rived in Naples tho same day with the
Governor Roosevelt's card, which Miss
Johnston still retains, proved an open
sesame to the Admiral's heart. The next
morning she had ,ecured a doztn plates
of the Admiral and cverv thing on board
ship duwn to the cainry which lost its
leg in the bittle of Manila Bay.

Engine Driver and Fireman
.Ttimjied From Locomotive Go
ing at Speed of Forty ililes
Colorado Springs. Colo.. JCoi. 14 Many
persons Img wondered how It feels to so
out into space from the cab, of a.locomo
tive going at a rate of forty to fifty miles
because of a conviction thitl the chances
of life are greater by takinB such a leap
than by remalnlne oil the seat of the cab.
To make such u leap out of a runaway
engino that is descending. Ute Pass, taking
chances on landing against a bowlder or
the side of a mountain, was the fate that
Frank Watts, engine driver, and James
Brandcbery, fireman, performed, and both
men are etlll alive to tell the tale.
The fact that the air brakes would not
stop the train dawned upon Watts spon
after crossing the saftty iwitcli below
Btery train that comes down ute Pass
stops at Ciscadc for Inspection. The run
ning gear is inspected, tho brakes are ex
amined and tested and four different men

is in shape to make the descent before the
engine driver is allowed to pull tho throt
tle to start his machine on Its downward
A:i a further safeguard against run
aways the company has u safety snitch
built on the side of the mountain about
half a mile below Cascade, and before any
train can have the main line to make the
descent the engine driver must whistle for
tho track, when "Uncle Jlmmj" Taggart
turns the snitch and opens the main line.
If the engine driver falls to whlstlo for
this swltrli his train runs ud the side of
the mountain and "sec-saws'! back andn
forth on the switch and the main track
until it come? to a stop at the bpttom of
FIREMAN TEU-S STORY.
The freight' train passed Inspection lat
Cascade and entered the main track at
the safety snitch. It woajuot long there
after that Watts, in recharging his air
brakes, made the d!coery that his train
was, beyond his control. His brakes were
not of sufficient power' to withstand the
weight of his sixteen cars of gold ore and
lead And silver bullion and there was no
reasonable expectation that the train,
would remain on the tracks through tho
first tunnel of the eight that lay be
tween him and the level track.
Brandeberry tells the story thus: y
"The. last safety switch was passed with
the train under perfect control, stealing
slowly down the mountainside. It ran as
usual until we had covered about three
fourths of a mile, when. the engine driver
thought he had better recharge his air
brakes. There is a loss'of air in running
the train, and it Is necessary from time to'
time to recharge the brakes.! If this Is ncaj
done the brakes will lose their grips On the
wheels. This recharging process requires
nearly three minutes, and, "with the terri
ble weight of the train we were bringing
down this time gave us a terrific impetus.

Seemed to be little effectr'.He applied them
again and" again, but It was of no per-
"Xounay imagine that we were feeling
mighty uncomfortable, and had to decide
prettj quick what wo were going to do.
AVe sized up the situation us uest we
mUht and decided that we had a chance
only by Jumping from the cab, and a small
chance at that, and that the rest of the
boys on the train had only the same
chance that we had. When we made Up
our minds to make the leap we had stayed
with her for three-quarters of a mile and
knew that she was wild and that every
second lessened our chances. Watts made
the leap ahead Of met
ALIGHTED ON GRANITE BANK.
"When we Jumped we were In a straight
stretch of track and ho was fortunate
enough to strike the ground on a gravel
slide. He went at least twenty-five feet
fiat on his stomach, and I thought still
less of my own chances when he had
made the leap. I think it was about twen
ty seconds later that I followed him. I
hit a bank of disintegrated granite, en
the upper side of the track. 1 rolled over
and over for about thirty feet, and how
my head ktpt In connection with my oody
is something I will never know. I reil
lzed that 1 was rolling further down tho
embankment all the time and that it I
didn't stop I was going under the wheels
of the train. I graspod and reached for
something to stop me, but caught noth
ing. When I realized that I had stopped
sliding and rolling my hold was swimming
und even thing was black as night before
"I couldn't tell until after the whole
train had parsed whether J had been
ground up beneath It or not, but I knew
that I was not dead. In a few seconds, al
though they seemed hours, I realized that
the train had gone and I sat up. There
was Watts about ixtv feet behind me,
also sitting up und looking at me. I don't
think 1 cried, but it was not because I
didn't want to.
"In a moment we remembered that the
engine that had helped us down from
Leadvllle, was following and we flagged
it. Front that point down to Manitou we
made a low run, oxpecjing to find the
train piled up in some of tho canyons
along the way, and to havo to carry the
remuins of the rest of the bovs down to
Colorado City with us. We were I'orty-Uve
minutes making the run to Colorado City.
Our surprise at finding that there had been
no one hurt In the wreck that we found
there was equaled only by our surprise at
being alive ourselves.'
An investigation was held at the office
of the superintendent nt Colorado City.
The main reason for the cause of the
wreck wus shown to be that the train was
composed ttf o many foreign cars- with
low-braking power. An explanation of
this is that the braking power-of tho for
eign cars is onlv from 40 to 50 per cent and
that of the home cars Is 70 and 80 .per cent.
