THE TELEPHONE-REGISTER. M c M innvii . k , February - O regon : 8, 1889. CHASBD BV A THl'NDERBOLT. “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 see. "All of a sudden Tom yells to me: “Holy Moses! The lightning’s struck the track! Pu.'i out Johnnie, or we’re done for’’ “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 vent debtor. "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 Herald. 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 trade.’ ” 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 natural-gas deve opment at Pittsburg, electric light an< motors and railroad building. 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) Statistics relating to railroad corpora tions, express, telegraph and insurance companies.
