Tlio Trump nml the Hot ltnx.
Llko n new man ho went to work. First
taking nn iron hook ho pulled every bit of
tho packing from out tho box nml then
poured bucketful nfler bucketful of cold
water, curried from the wuter Inn ., into tho
box. It wns soon npiKircutly cold, but tho
experience of tho trainmen taught thorn that
when tlio train started up Unit coolness would
vanish llko an Icicle, on n town pump in tho
rays ot tho wnrm suu.
liut the tramp soon astonished tlicm by
completely filling tho iron box with anml
brought from tho sand dome on the engine.
"Now, air," ho quietly but firmly bald to
tho conductor, "start your train, run for flvo
miles nt regular simxhI, then stop."
Tho conductor looked puzzled nud half in
clined to refuse, but tho saying "you can't
mnko worse worscr" bottled the question.
At tho llvo mile, stop thu trainmen nnd
tramp rnu forward, found the nxlound tho
brass journals around the aamo literally
"white hot." Tho trump throw in pnllsful of
water, washed out thu baud ckvui, mid cooled
tho box again in n jiffy. Then ho put in
fresh wnstu for packing, good oil, n llttlo bait
nnd ordered tho conductor to start. IVolI,
tho train went to 1 on time, nud that
box wns us cold ns an icoljcrg.
I was interested in tho matter and asked
tho conductor how It was dono.
"Well," lio slowly nnd rather cmbnr
rasscdly said, "it was as simple as thorulo of
thrco after you understand it. Ho ls somo
practical machinist broken down by rum.
Ho knew that tho revolving of tho uxlo bo
tween tho two brass journnls In that box
would never heat nnd bet firo to tho wasto if
thero was plenty of oil thero and no rough
Rubstuuco between tho journnls nud revolv
ing nxlo to create a friction. Very fre
quently tlicro is n tiny point or ror h projec
tion on cither tho brass journals or steel axlo
and this produces tho boat. Now, then, ho
simply took out tho packing, mndo it n dry
box, put in tho sand, which smoothed down
tho rough place, nml then lio cooled It off nnd
