More Than 100 Feet Long and Amounts to
Two Engines in One
The Southern Pacific Railroad
has just had completed at the
shops of the Baldwin Locomo
tive Works fifteen new locomo
tives of a type which has aroused
considerable interest The new
engines are of the Mallet com
pound type which are in reality
equivalent to two locomotives
joined into one having two sets
of cylinders and driving wheels
The Southern Pacific almost a
year ago secured a number of
these locomotives but engineers
operating them have raised the
objection that the extreme
length of the machine exceeding
as it does 100 feet and the huge
boiler interfere with the view
of the track ahead
To obivate this difficulty the
Southern Pacific has bad its new
Mallets so constructed as to
be turned about and run back
ward with the cab foremost
The result is an engine resembl
ing frcm the front an electric
locomotive with large windows
through which ithe engineer
gains an unobstructed view of
the track From the windows
downward is a smooth plate
front with a small pilot helow
it the real cud is the smoke
stack and behind the second set
of cylinders isthel tender
Such aU arrangement of course
would be an impossibility with a
coal burning locomotive where
the firing must bedone in the
engine cab The Southern Pa
cifics engines however are oil
burners and the only change
necessary was to extend the
pipes around the side of the
boiler from the tender tank to
the oil burners in the firebox
The advantages gained from
the clear outlook afforded the
man operating the locomotive in
the opinion of railway engineer
lag men that it is regarded a N i
strange that po few have ben
designed In the 4rciiaarYaoa 1

Earlinjjton City Hall Hears Talks
on Important Farm Topics
The Hopkins County Farmers
Hall Saturday morning and was
called to order at 10 oclock by
Judge Jno G B Hall president
of the cub v The morning Was
filled with very interesting dig
cessions continued right up to
the noon hour when adjourn
ment was had until one oclock4
After the dinner hour the meet
inc was continued with renawed
interest until final adjournment
at 4 oclock Some twentyfive
fatmers all told attended the
meeting coining from various
faections of time county and their
interest was keenly manifested d d
throughout the day Only a feW
of the subjects outlined in the
program published last week in
THE BEE could be taken up be
cause of the lack of time The
principal topics discussed ere as
Esq J H Shaw led the dis
cussion on Corn making a very
instructive talk and conducting
veritable rouhd table7 upon
ithe J subject wjiiph r drew out
A t < yv > >
mauy questions from others in
jattendauce W W Wilson of
Dalton and J H Laffoon took
parjjvuiso in discussion of this
subJecb f i Jcrutspnted th K
time until noon vvrhir I
The first subject taken up aft
er dinner was Fruit Grafting
and Spraying by J J Tippett
a practical and self trained fruit
grower and nursery man of this
county whose home is a few
miles northwest of MadisonvilJe
VIr Tippett illuminated his talk
by exhibiting various tree cut
tings and rooted young fruit
trees to show the manner of
grafting told how to make at
home a cheap and practical
spraying mixture and how to ap
ply it Another point he touch
ed upon especially was the dead
ly San Jose scale describing it
and the danger of it and how to
avoid and control it by spraying
Mr Tippett was subjected to
numerous queries from interest
ed listeners
Esq Frank Sisk stirred a more
general interest perhaps than
any other speaker by his story of
his successful experience in
growing pea hay for a number of
years past He now puts in an
nually 85 or more acres in peas
and is considered as perhaps the
most successful grower of this
important crop in Hopkins coun
ty His farm is but a short dis
tance west of Earlington and he
was formerly for some years a
resident of this place
J H Laffcon was on the pro
gram for a talk on hay growing
but this subject was not reached
Mr Laffoon made a brief talk
on Wheat however when the
latter subject came up onthe
jjiQgfani Regrets were ozpcps
sod that there was not time to
hear Mr Laifoon on grass and
hay culture because he is known
to have devoted much time to
this crop for years and with fine
success The chairman an
nounced that the cldb would ex
pect to hear from Mr Laffoon
on this subject at its next meet
Tiling and Drainage was dis
cussed by J D Bobbitt Madi
sonville W W Wilson and J
H Laffoon and it proved to be a
subject those present generally
ts o
farmersj butt a thins which but
+ Cer
few of the Hopkins county farm =
tars had put to the practical let
This is probably because it cons
some 20 per acreto tile land
properly The two last gentle <
men Had used tHe oxtbnsiveiyou Q
their farms for years peat
and had gotten results that l
proved to them the plan was
very beneficial
The farmers nil agreed iliat
fertilizers were beneficiar lo
wheat but several expressed tie
yiew that they did not believejn
it for any other farm crop Some
oven declared the n belief to be
that fertilizers were simply
stimulants and their conth tieaj
use Would exhaust the land 7
The leading spirits in time
meeting urged the holding of
monthly meetings of the Farm
ers OlVb as it was proposed
should be done when tIle club
was organized at tho Farmers
+ 1
Institute held here last fall and
come out of frequent discussion
of the best methods in various
details of farming r Iot
