Too "Funny" by Half.
The Franklin glee club gave its enter
tainment , Tuesday evening , in the Con
gregational church , before a well-filled
house , notwithstanding the rainy , in
clement weather. With the exception
of two or three meritorious numbers , the
entertainment was rather "plunky , " and
a disappointment. The club is poorly
balanced being weak on the tenor end
and badly "listed" to the basso side.
Perhaps the most vulnerable point in the
entertainment was the excess of "fun. "
It spoiled the taste of the music which
was fairly creditable and enjoyable.
Prof. Aller's base solo , Miss Stevens'
piano solo and at least one club effort
were creditable.

A new style of locomotive , to be known
is the "Atlantic type , " is being experi
mented with by the Chicago , Rock Is- li
and & Pacific road. One of the features
) f the engine is a device whereby almost
he entire weight of the locomotive , in-
: luding the tender , may be thrown di- a
ectly over the driving wheels when
iteep grades are to be covered. "Trac-
ion increaser" is the name given the
nechaiiisrn used in shifting the weight.
Phe machinery for doing this is air cyl-
nders placed over what are known as
'idler" wheels , directly under the cab. h
[ "he removal of a portion of the weight '
rom the idlers allows the back of the tl
ngine to sink down and thereby trans-
ers it to the drivers. Engineers have
) renounced the new device one of the
> est inventions added to locomotives in
'ears. It enables trains to climb heavy
grades easily and in long trains renders
mnecessary the work of a helping en-
jine at the rear of trains. But hill-
: limbing is not the only feature of the
veight changer. In starting a train from
i station or on level track it demon-
itrates its usefulness equally as well. It
ibviates the use of sand and assists an
ingine to "keep on her feet. " One of
hese new engines on the Rock Island
ecently made a record-breaking run
vith a "train of seven cars. The 182
uiles between Davenport and Chicago
vas covered in three hours and twenty
ninutes. The first 119 miles were run
n 122 minutes , including two stops ,
inhere were several bursts of speed , in
phich a rate of eighty-five miles per
tour was attained.
