Many of the Lamar bust ness men subscribed fare for one person, and they either sent some one or let the school board choose some one to send. The result from the game was not Just what was expected by the lotmar people but never the less not enough courage and praise can be given the Lamar team for their good work. J'ae boys went in tin. game on very poor grounds for either team, and it was seen that the game would be hard fought. In the first half the Springs boys played hard and by out nissing our boys they were abi j to for-’e too pig-skin over the goal line on a fluke, and missed goai. Between Halves the boys were feeling in the bist spirits and had tu~ intentiat of winning the game. But to theii sad dissapointmeut the "Terrors forced the second touchdown over the goal, and also kicked a goal. The game went on for a few min utes and it was seen that the La mar team was outclassed, mosti> being in the swiftness of the op ponents.

Tue rear thre. pairs are driven by high preso-*. > tinders, and the two forwaiu pairs by low pressure cyiiudors. An engine as long as this levi -tiuan built aloug ordinary line witu rigid frame, would have dii tlculty in negotiating even ordin ary curves. To overcome this mos. serious objection, the designer h.. ouiit the frame of these monster* ii two parts so arranged that i will give on the curves. In * official tests this engine took sixteen degree curve as easily as switch engine and without reduc tion of speed. me feed water-pipes are equip ped with a heater that raises the temperature of the water to above ooiling point before admiting it to the boiler. After the steam has .seen generated to a register c juut 200 pounds to the square inch it is sent through a super uealer before passing to the higi. pressure cylinders. After perform ing this duty, the steam goes into a reheater for rejuvenation before mtering the low pressure cylin ders, from here it exhausts through rue stack. This engine is the first one for passcpger service, built on Mallet s design. and the * lrat to combine fet-u water-heater, super-heater auu .ebeater in the same machine. As a measure of comparison it may be stated that this locomotive develops a traeuon power of 65,000 pouups of 2.- pounds in the next most powerful passenger engines ever ouiit . A second locomotive exactly dup li.uting the one described is nei.il> iearly for delivery. In addition to ibo*e passenger engines, the Bald win company have under way t*o Mallet compounds for Santa Fe ireigui service. These machines are larger in every way than those lu te no*: il for passenger service, save .u the matter of drive wheels, they are but 62 Inches in diameter. Thel weight is to be 700,000 pounds each. The ordering of these monster machines is in line with the advanc ed ideas that characterize the Santa Fe in all departments . If these engines perform the work expected of them, others will be ordered for use on the several .nountain divisions of the Santa Fe. The development of the Ameri can locomotive is one of the mar vels of the age. Twenty years ago the monsters of the rails were 48 feet long, 10 feet high anu weighed but 116,000 pounds. These new mountain climbers of the Santa Fe will make the old time heavy weights look like toys. The big engine will be put on ex hibition for a few days, in Chicago, after which it will proceed west to enter regular service. H. W. Koen made*a trip to Pu eblo last week on business.
