“What was th« fastest time vou ever
made?” asked the talker of Johnnie
Byers, one of the best known engineers
in the western country.
“Well, he returned, “I reckon a run
of forty miles I made on the North Platte
end of the division was the slickest.
You see, I was sent out from Omaha
with a light engine to pull in a special
director’s car from North Platte, and
when I got within about fifty miles of
the latter station I was given an order
to run regardless of everything—other
trains were side-tracked for me.
"I hadn’t left the station more’n five
minutes before a heavy thunderstorm
casse up—‘hey do it awful quick out
there—and me and my fireman enjoyed
the finest display of fireworks you ever
"All of a sudden Tom yells to me:
“Holy Moses! The lightning’s struck
the track! Pu.'i out Johnnie, or we’re
“I looked back, and sure enough there
came a streak of lightning along the
right rail headed for us. It was a kinder
whitish-blue sort of a thing, and was
humping along like it had a time order.
"I knew that if it struck the machine
we was ail gone to the sweet hereafter,
and I pulled her wide open.
"Well, the old machine seemed to
know something was up, and she gave a
jump like a scared antelope and shot
ahead of that lightning streak. At first
the streak seemed to be gaining on us,
but after ths engine got good and start
ed, my, you ought to see the distance
play out between us. But the lightning
didn’t seem to be discouraged. It just
spit on its hands and clawed along alter
us like a promissory note after an insol
"Well, I saw something must be done,
but couldn’t make out how to do it. It
waB plain that if this thing kept up much
longer the water and coal would give
o«A not to speak of red-hot journals. I
s& to Tom:
THeave away, now, with the coal and
will fool him,’ and, although he’d been
heaving away since the start of the race,
that Beemed to help, for I could see the
lightning was lagging. Then I turned
the machine over to him and crawled
back on the tank. I bad an idea. There
was a siding a few miles ahead and if we
could make it—well, you’ll see. There
wai a broken drawbar on the tank, and
when I reckoned we’d got about the
right distance 1 dropped it. I could see
it rolling along for quite a dis.auce, then
I got back to the engine and slacked up.
“All of a sudden I heard the most out
landish racket you ever heard of behind
ns. Then the air was full of splinters,
and when I rolled back, sure enough
the drawbar had fallen in the switch I’d
calculated on hitting, and. bad made
snch a connection with the main track
that the lightning had been switched off
and had run down on the siding and in
to two cars of powder standing there.
I’m sorry I can’t give you the exact
time of that run, but under the circum
stances you could not expect a man to
hold a watch, now could you?”— Omaha
Clinching a Bargain.
“Some years ago when we wore re
pairing our Sun lay school building we
held the school in the auditorium of our
church,’’ said Bishop Cheney. “I was
superintending it mysell one dav, and
entering the chttrcb I came across a little
group of street gamine, some boys, one
or two girls, ragged, dirty and unattrac
tive. I stopped to speak with them
pleasantly, and told them that I would
put them in clarses after I got through
with the opening exercises, and one of
them thrust his hand deep down in hia
trousers pocket and pulle<^ out an old
rusty jackknife ¡.nd said; Mr. Cheney,
I wish you would keep that until after
the Sunday scl ool is ove>.’ Why he
wanted me to keep it I did not know
then. I do know now; but I took it,
put it without thought into my pocket,
took my place ipon the platform and
struck the bell ihat called the school to
order, was abort to begin the opening
prayer—give ort tbe opening hymn—
when my attention was diverted by the
patter of little f 'et coming up the broad
aisle. It ia a long church, and a little
girl was coming from the extreme oppo
site end. She rime slowly, but with an
expression in her face that showed she
had a most imprrtant message to com
municate, and so all exercises were sus
pended. Every eye was upon her and
upon me as she climbed up the chancel
steps. With a fi.ee and voice expressive
of intense eagerness, she said to me:
“ ‘Say, Mr. C heney, Johnnie wants
his knife; he has got a chance to
Inventor Westinghouse’s Millions.
George WeBtinghouse, of Pittsburg, iB
estimated to be worth 1'20,000,000, which
he made first by his airbrakes for en
gines and railroal cars. Every man who
travels nowadays pays tribute to West
inghouse. His inventions made fast
travelling possibl ». The quick stopping
of a train was next to imjtossible before
his brakes came into u»e, and hence it
was dangerous to run fast and create too
great momentum. While talking with
Mr. Westinghouse recently he was ap
proached by a gentleman of hia acquain
tance, who recalled the fact that Mr.
Westinghouse had once offered him hie
brake inventions for the sum of |3,000.
Since he founded his enormous fortune
Mr. Westinghouse has been interested in
various other en erprises including the

The Next Census.
In taking the eleventh census a great
man}' cumbrous and practically useless
details that were carried out in taking
the tenth census are to be omitted. Ex
perience has shown how to reach with
much less labor than heretofore all the
results that ate of practical value.
Twenty-two enormous volumes, besides
compendiums, were the outgrowth of
the census of 1880. The bill now before
congress, to make provision for the cen
sus of 1890, limits the volumes to seven,
viz: (1) Population anil social statistics
relating thereto; 12) Products of manu
factories; (3) Mining; (4) Agriculture;
(5) Mortality and vital Hiatistics; (6)
Valuation and public indebtedncHs; (7)
