HIGH SPEED ON FRENCH RAIL
WAYS. The compound locomotive Is win
ning laurels for itself just now by Its
remarkable work in hauling express
trains on some of the French railways.
We have not been accustomed to look
to France for record high speed per
formances, tho trains In this country
and in England having been up to a
iw years ago easny nrst in this re
spect. Of late years, however, a few of
the French railroads havo been paying
particular attention to their express
train service, with the result that the
last named now holds the leading
place, running several of its crack
trains at an average speed, including
stops, of over 54.5 miles per hour.
Of the twenty-five expresses that are
booked to run at a speed of over 50
miles an hour, there are six, including
one between Amiens and Calais Ville,
102.J miles, with a speed of between
50 and 50.9 miles an hour; seven be
tween 51.1 and 51.8 miles an hour;
seven between 52 and 52.7 miles an
hour, and five having respective speeds
of 54.5, 54.8 55.3, 5C.3 and 57.7 miles
an hour, including stops; tho last
named run is made between Paris and
Amiens, 81a miles; while tho averago
of 56.3 is maintained on a continuous
run, without stop, between Paris and
St. Quentin, a distance of 95$ miles.
vvnat a splendid service this is will be
understood when wo bear in mind the
fact that the five fastest trains exceed
tho speed of our own Empire State ex
press, which is timed to run from New
York to Albany at the rate of 53.58
miles nn hour, though they do not
equal tho Atlantic City flyer on tho
Philadelphia and Reading railroad.
The trains are not so heay as the Em
pire State express, although some re
markable work has been done with
trains of between 300 and 400 tons,
running at speeds of from 40 to 50
miles an hour.
Perhaps tho most interesting feature
of this express service is tho fact that
it in worked by compound locomotives
of tho four cylinder typo. These on
glnes have generous grate surface; a
largo total heating surface, in some

ONE-FOURTH OF THE WORLD'S
Fully one-quarter of tho world's sup
ply of coal is now mined in tho United
States, and in tho last twenty-eight
years no country has como anywhoro
near equaling it in tho increase of pro
duction. Whilo tho increase for tho
wholo world has bepn less than 100 por
cent, that of tho United States alone
has been nearly 200 per cent.
In the calendar year 1897 tho total
production of bituminous and anthra
cite grades was 19,603,970 tonB, worth
at tho mines $198,809,178. Local in

enough to warrant increased and more

With a present production more

1870, our exportations havo increased
