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.
