C.Benton, Oregon, Mo CAPTURES RUNAWAY ENGINE. How a Plucky Engineer Overtook His Locomotive on an English Railway. One of the finest stories in the his tory of the English railways centers round a runaway engine on the Stock ton & Darlington line. The engine was observed by the driver of another and more powerful one. Seeing the fugitive speeding in the direction of Darlington, he un coupled his own engine, crossed the points and set out in pursuit on the name line. It was a long chase, but the pursuer, driven at top speed, grad ually overhauled the runaway. At last it came near enough for the driver to crawl to the front of his en gine and drop a stout chain over the tender hook of the other. He returned to his footplate, shut off steam, and screwed down his brake. This steadied the one In front and so retarded Its pace that the driver was able now to creep from his own engine on to the runaway, put on the brake and bring it to a standstill, al most in the crowded Darlington sta tion. Underground Rivers in Australia. There are comparatively few rivers j of any size or importance in Australia, i and a local learned professor of sci t ence has ben explaining the reason. In consequence of the geological for j mat ion of the commonwealth most of j its rivers are at present imprisoned i subterranean streams. He declares that one of these under j ground rivers is the largest in the j world, being no less than 200 miles j wide and running right through the center of the continent. If these vast supplies of subterranean waters were brought to the surface and properly utilized Australia would become the richest country in the world. Eating and Drinking.
