The railways in the state of Ohio have
carried 85,000,000 passengers during the
last two years without a fatal accident to
one of them-a creditable fact which appears -

places in the world.-Railway Age.
The western roads into St. Paul ,
Minn. , have announced that for 6o days

The Great Northern railway of England -

After pumping a handcar up a heavy
grade over rails covered wiih sand a section -
tion foreman fells like getting a club
and murdering the thick-skulled engineer
who leaves such evidence of his ignorance -
ance behind. Many engineers imagine
that the more sand they use the less the
drivers will slip. The result is that the
rails are covered with sand , the engine
rumbles over it , every car drags heavily ,
and if the train gets over the hill it is
by main strength and awkwardness.
Then when the track men come along
they must get off and push or tire themselves -
selves out pumping the car up. It seems
that not more than one engineer in ten
understands that a few grains of sand
distributed along the rail a distance
equal to the diameter of the drivers and
at intervals of 500 to boo feet is sufficient
to prevent slipping.-Jerry Sullivan , in
the Road Master.

Two Twenty Five--After the Wreck
BY MRS. LILLIAN VAN BURChI.
Two Twenty-Five came back again ,
All fitted once more for work , ,
Bounding and pulling o'er valley and plain ,
And never a duty she'll shirk.
There's a stranger's hand on the throttle now ,
A new fireman at his side ;
Calmly along with thoughtful brow ,
O'er the same old track they ride.
Two TwentyFive came back again ;
All shining and new you come back ;
Did not your iron sides throb with pain ,
As you stoodon that glittering track ,
Where in the mire , a few short weeks before ,
Sobbing like some human soul you lay ;
While 'neath your iron weight those four ,
Lay breathing their lives away ?
Two Twenty-Five came back again ;
Oh , the weary hearts that will ache ,
As they look upon you with eyes of pain ,
Then , sec the empty homes you make.
You come from the shops all clean and new ,
To take up your duties once more ;
The OTHERS are standing purified too ,
On the other side of the shore.
Two Twenty-Five came back again.
To her duty so tried and true ;
We know 'tho' we look with eyes all stained ,
She only did as her Master bade her do ;
And there on the other side , we know ,
Are the loved ones we laid to rest ;
For our Master repays what is done below ,
' Ah , truly" , we murmur , "God knows best" .

In the valley of the Ohio river and its
