Lamar vs Colorado Springs.
The Lamar football squad left
for Colorado Springs last Friday
morning and on the following day

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. The Lamar team have n.
•if’s’ or ‘an’s’ to give, but are wii.
iug to admit that they were ou
classed. The score stood 11—0 ii
favor of the Colorado Springs Tei

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

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>

ibo*e passenger engines, the Bald

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.
