Tbe two big engines now on tbe
S.P. are run between Roseburg and
Grants Pass by Engineers Wake and
Porter. The former's was laid up for
severtl days with a broken malt' rod,
but Is back on the road again. It
seems tn be the intention of the com
pany to put.elx nf these engines on
between Roseburg and Portland to
take place of eight smaller ones now
in use, tbe two running south to take
the place of three now running there.
They will then take off two of the'
helpers here and one at Grants Pass,
throwing three crews out of employ
ment. The engineers do not seem lo
take kineUy to the big machines,
believing them lo lie rather risky
things t run on, especially south
through the canyon. They soy that
it is Impossible to see any distance
ahead on track, and that they will
probably run into obstructions more
frequently than heretofore. Review

he was shown Into a hath room, He
was heard to splosh around awhile
and then everything became quiet.
So quiet that the janitor became
curious and looked' over the door1
