THE GREAT T"ANS-CONTINENTAL
Whatever surprises are in store for
us in the way of new trans-continental
lines, it is reasonably certain that the
Northern Pacific will always remain
the choice of nine out of ten persons
going from Oregon to the East who
seek comfort or pleasure. The splendid
combination of river and mountain
scenery along its lino, together with
its unrivaled equipment, place the
" Northern" easily at the head.

STORIES OF THE RAIL.
I. or. mini I vr Tlittt l.ove uml lisle Mini t't
hllill Oilier Human raealiui.
"Locomotives are funny things,'
said at) Erie engineer, "anil I've -oii
them sometimes when I believed they
were actually human. Tlmv get the
sulks ami have balky streaks, and
when they're in such moods you can't
make time with them any more than
you can II v. Then again they'll be as
chipper ami willing as a thoroughbred
horse, and you actually have to hold
Yin 111 to keep from running into sta
tions ahead of time.
"I suppose the stuhbornest loco
motive that was ever put on aro:;l was
one of the "Twin Sisters,' a couple of
sj'lendid machines built by the .New
1 ork Central a few vears ago. They
were made exactly alike in every par
ticular, from the same patterns, by the
same workmen and with the same ma
terials. There wasn't a man on the
mud that' could tell which was which
until their numbers were painted on
them. They were beauties, and the
engineers who were assigned to duty
on them were the envy of all the boxs.
When the engines were put on trial one
of the locomotives developed amazing
power and speed. She could take a
freight train up a grade with scarcely
an effort, and with a passenger train
made tifty miles an hour with ease.
The other one wouldn't go at all. Even
when 'pulled wide open' she would
simply give a few spiteful pull of black
smoke, a few turns of her driving
wheels, and then would slop. The
way she exhausted steam showed that
she w as a vixen. She was taken apart,
and not a single thing could be found
wrong with her mechanism. Different
parts of the locomotive that was so
great a success were exchanged for the
same parts in the stubborn one. The
wjjling locomotive ran us well as ever,
but the stubborn one refused to move a
peg. They tried a half dozen different
engineers on her for you must know
that sometimes a locomotive is par
ticular about the man that handles her
throttle, and w ill do work for one that
she refuses to do for another: but she
treated them all with equal disdain.
They put her in the round house and
kept her there for six months, thinking
that she might get over her balky lit,
und run all right on another trial.
"One day they fired her up and tried
her. She started off like a beauty, and
ran two miles in a little over two min
utes. Then she stopped, and couldn't
be induced to make a movu in either
direction. She was towed back to the
shops and taken to pieces. The same
machinery was used in building anoth
er locomotive, and that one was as big
a success as the mate of the stubborn
engine, ami when I last heard of her
she was still one of the best engines on
"It sounds (pieer to say that locomo
tives have their likes und dislikes, hut
it actually does seem that they have,
und there are few engineers who don't
believe it. There isn't a railroad man
who can't tell you instances by the
dozen of engines that positively would
not make time with some engineers,
but which would get there every time
under the hands of others. You might
say it was the fault of the engineers if
the engines did not make their time,
but I have known the very best engi
neers that ever mounted the footboard
who have been obliged to be transferred
from locomotives placed in their charge
because the locomotives would not
make the time, but which, under the
hand of other engineers neither as
skillful nor so experienced, would never
"Take the case of Josh Martin and
Gad Lj mail, two of the old-time Erie
engineers, und either of them w ithout
a superior in their day. Josh was run
ning 11 locomotive that he was greatly
attached to, and the sequel proved that
the attachment was mutual. For some
reason or other the superintendent of
the road wanted Josh's locomotive for
nse on a portion of the road that Ly
man ran on, so he ordered Lmii.hi and
Martin to exchange engines. The old
ftdlows who remember it say that when
Josh's engine was run from PortJer
vis Josh cried like a baby, and that the
engine herself was all broke up at the
parting, for she was 1111 hour longer
than she should have been in "cttiuc;
to her new field of labor. (Sad Lyman
took charge of her; but she made up
her mind that she wouldn't work un
der him, and she didn't. Sin- got
stalled with the lightest trains, and
never made her run on time. After a
week's trial Lyman reported the loco
motive 'No good," and she was con
demned to run the gravel train. She
worked as balky and sulky as ever, and
the superintendent ordered her taken
to Pater.on and br ken up. Josh Mar

road u-tlving. He begged In have his
'old galv hack again, and linally the
superintendent said he might try her.
Josh mounted the foot-board once
more, uml when be pulled the throttle
away she went like a bird. She made
the run to Port Jervis quicker than
any locomotive hud ever done it up to
that dav, and Josh Martin ran her for
years over the Delaware division ufU-r
that, and always made his run on time
as easy us could be, except in cases of
accident. No, sir; the fact of the mat
ter was, Josh und that engine just
loved one another, anil simply would
not be parted; and there are plenty of
cases just like it to-day. X. '. Huh.

by standing in the isle at her side, con

CHILDREN WHO ASK.
Wliv I'ari'iils KIidiiIiI Answer All Lawful
Qm-Htliiiu of Chlllrii.
Mr. Mary ('. Hungerford has some
wise words in Our i'liiinlrij Home about
answering the hoys. Children, loth
boys and girls, ask all, manner of ipies
tions just because they ore curious and
want to know. The child that does not
ask questions must be lacking in in
telligence, and the gist of Mrs. Hunger
ford's advice is that mothers should not
he ashamed to candidly own their
ignorance when unable to answer some
puzzling query. Evasive answers are
denounced on the ground that "a
child's clear eyes soon see through its
mother's thinly-veiled pretense of being
too busy or too sick, and then he has to
learu that she not only is not able to
give the information he seeks, but
stoops to deceit to cover her inability.
The boy w ho finds out that his mother's
lips can litter a word that is not strictly
true is to be pitied, but his mother is
more to he pitied." A suggestion fol
lows to the effect that mothers might
get their children to help them more at
the household work and in turn stiidv
a little with the children, mid thus ui!
would learn something und ait era of
mutual helpfulness would set ill. I
cordially commend the idea. Mothers,
and fathers, too, are far too much ad
dicted to the habit of checking the
wholesome spirit of inquiry and in
vestigation in their children, w hich is a
mark of a healthy mind. If ignorant
on any point, look it up. If possible,
let the child look it up with you. Then
talk over the subject in tlx household
so that it may be pcrmaucntlv im
pressed on the minds of all. All law
ful (juestions should be encouraged.
