it is a remarkable tact that one of the fast
est, if not the fastest, locomotive now run
ning was built 45 years ago. Its driving
wheels are feet, cylinders 17‘4 inches
with two inch stroke, and lias easily attained
a speed of 75 miles an hour. It is interesting
to know that the engine is still working the
forty-five minute express of the London
and Northwestern between Manchester and
Liverpool, one of the fastest services in the
kingdom, and it is stated that still, after her
forty-five years service with a load equal to
her power, she is capable of running at the
highest possible speed yet attained.

edition to the car service between Chicago

wood and ash. The upholstering is in em
bossed plush of peacock blue, old gold, green
and drab. The compartments are reserved
exclusively for ladies traveling alone. The
Pmtscli system of gas is used in gold-plated
trimmings and lamps. Tlie cars are termed
the best ever turned out by the Pullman
The new chair car in which the heating ap
paratus blew up at Red Cloud, Monday
evening, went through Lincoln at 7:45 yes
terday morning on its way to Plattsmouth
for repairs. The Baker heater made a sorry
reck of one end of the car. A hole about
three feet wide was blown out the side, and
the portion of the roof that was just over
the heater lies in fragments out near Red
Cloud just where it landed after being struck
with a hurtling slab of boiler iron over two
inches thick. The sensation of the passen
gers who were involuntary spectators of the
occurrence can be best imagined. It this
thing gets common it may be expected to ap
pear in next year’s “only startling realistic
play.”—Wednesday’s Lincoln Journal.

ly conductor. He was to have been one of the
crew of a freight going east at about two
o’clock this morning, but while the cars were
in motion in making a coupling of the air
hose preparatory to starting out, his coat was
caught under one of the wheels and he was
drawn down to the rail and one pair of
trucks passed over his left arm crushing
along the left side of his body and inflicting
a severe scalp wound. He was carried into
Agent Phelp’s room and Drs. W. H. Smith
and W. K. Miller summoned. The left arm
was amputated and liis other injuries dressed,
but it is hardly possible that he will survive.
