Au Oddity in Railroading.
“The craze for fast time on railways
Is taking a new feature,” observed a
prominent railroad official to a Star
writer recently. “It is the shortening
of lines and reconstruction of surveys
in order to make a given line as
straight as possible between two points.
It is, in fact, a scheme to make time
by saving distance. A railway with
out a curve or a cutting is, of course, a
splendid thing from an engineering
standpoint, but it is a very tedious
affair to the passenger. To thoroughly
realize how extremely monotonous a
long journey on a railway without a
curve or cutting is, one must travel on
the road from Buenos Ayres to the
Andes. That railroad beats all known
records for having 200 miles of tracks
almost on a line, such as mathemati
cians describe as the shortest distance
between any two points. No one who
has not seen this remarkable stretch of
road, straight in front and behind as
far as the eye can reach, even when
aided by a field glass, can grasp what it
means or what an amount of wearisome
monotony it involves and entails.”—
Improved Train Equipment.
The O. R. & N. and Oregon Short
Line have added a buffet, smoking and
library car to their Portland-Chicago
through train, and a dining car service
has been inauguarated. The train is
equipped with the latest chair cars,
day coaches and luxurious first-class
and ordinary sleepers. Direct connec
tion made at Granger with Union Pa
cific. and at Ogden with Ilio Grande

ington and Idaho to all Eastern cities.

Consequently, the railway had to be
laid on and along the river, not merely
It will be seen by the illustration that
the river runs side by side and under
the railway, and the bridge on which
the lines are laid Is suspended by rods
from the girders, or arch braces, which
span the chasm above. The bridge
therefore literally hangs. It can be
readily understood that the fixing of
these great girders in a position so in
accessible. with rapid water below, and
no foothold on either side, was an engi
neering feat of no slight difficulty.
It Had Been Swallowed by n Hungry
Dog, but la Still Useful.
A little group had been spinning
yarns in the rotunda of the Waltou for
an hour or more when a bronze-visag-
ed, middle-aged man joined the party.
Several of the group recognized him
ks the captain of one of the big tramp
steamers which ply between Philadel
phia and foreign ports, and a place In
the circle was at once made for him.
“We’ve been killing time telling sto
ries,” someone explained. "Suppose
you turn in your contribution.”
The captain thought a moment and
“I was thinking of something that
happened on my last voyage,” he final
ly said. “We had on board as a cook
a big colored fellow, whose principal
companion was a little yellow cur dog.
One day while the cook was preparing
some beef for dinner be let the heavy
cleaver with which he was doing the
chopping slip from his grasp.
“It fell to the floor with a thud and
the cook emitted a howl of anguish
that was heard all over the ship. The
cleaver had struck one of his bare feet
and sliced the big- toe off as neatly as
a surgeon could have done It. Here
was a chance for the yellow dog and
he seized it. Making a dive for tlie
severed toe he swallowed it In one gulp
and then made a bee-line for the deck.
“This was more than the cook, craz
ed with jMiin, could stand, and he burl
ed the cleaver at the dog. Ills aim
proved true and his curshlp passed out
of existence then and there. At this
Juncture the ship’s doctor came up to
find out what all the row was about.
When he learned the truth he laughed.
“ ‘JT1 fix that for you,’ he exclaimed
to the cook, “wait till I get my instru
“Within five minutes he had held a
l>ost-mortem on the dog and recovered
the lost toe. Washing' it with antisep
tics he skillfully stitched it back in
place again and the cook hobbled back
to his quarters minus his dog. but with
as many toes as he had ever had.
That's about the only story I recall,
Just now, gentlemen. It has the merit
of being true, however, and If you
don’t believe It come down to the ship
any timt and I’ll show you the cleav
er. The cook has quit the sea and I
don't know bls present address.”
But everyliody signified a willingness
to accept the captain’s word unsup
ported by further evidence and the

to grow worse. I lost 48 pounds,

Jucobs, of Richmond, advised me to

In a Missouri court recently a rather
novel case came up for decision. Dur- [
ing the civil war a certain Northern I
soldier went into the service, leaving a I
young wife at home. In due time the
news reached him that his bride had j
died and when the wa • ended he did
not return to his old home, but settled
out West. He married again, and with
his second wife accumulated a large
amount of property in Pratt county.
Not long ago he learned that his first
wife had not died, but, supposing him
to have been killed, had married an
other man. This man died, leaving
her a widow. When the Pratt county
man learned these facts he brought suit
for divorce, and the woman in the East
heard of it and went out and fought
the case, asserting a claim to part of
the Pratt county man’s property.
However, after the lawyers had made
a great fight before him, the judge
granted the divorce and left the Pratt
county man free to marry the woman
who has been living with him for many
years as his wife.—N. Y. Tribune.
