THE SCIt ANTON TRIBUNE-SATURDAY MORNING-. MARCH 12. 1894.
"TERSE NOMENCLATURE OF VARIOUS
BIG RAILWAY LINES.
II Titles of Some Well Known Hull
road Are Twitted and Abbreviated.
Why Some of the Names Are So Ap
pliedThe Stove Committee.
A gentleman of an Inquiring turn of
mini iisked Chauncey AI. Di-pew somo
tinio ngo how m.iny railroml nirknamtn
there were, Tlio New York Central's prey
Idcnt blandly replied, ".lust as many M
you have a mind to make.''
"But how many do you know?" persisted
"Well, I have hoard the Pittsburg, Fort
Wayne and Chicago road called Taddy
Ftanigan'a Wife and Children,' " said Mr,
Depew; "but really, if you want a list of
railroad nicknames I should not daro
ttndwtnka to make one out."
Other well known railroad men were so
licited to furnish the desired Information,
but in each case iuability to eucompass tho
subject was pleaded. "I havo heard," said
one of these Ki-ntlemen, "that tho nick
name 'Nickel Plate' was jrivi-n t the New
York, Chicago and St. Louis railroad by
William II. Vandorbilt when ho bouirht it.
Ilo was grumbling at tho pries he had to
pay, and remarked, 'Why, If the infernal
road was nickel plated It couldn't cost
much more.' "
Failing to obtain all the information de
sired from the railroad presidents, the in
quirer turned his attention to the general
managers. In the ranks of those indis
pensable functionaries was one man who
actually became interested In the subject.
He said genially, "1 cannot tell you much
ou my own authority, but between our
selves and the 'stove committee' 1 thiuk
we can make up a list."
TlIK "STOVK COMMlTTKK's" LIST.
The "stove committee." ho explaiued, is
the source of ull railroad information for
which no railroad Officer la Willing to be
directly responsible. There is a "stove
committee" connected with every railroad.
It keeps watch of things, discusses Internal
and external policies, criticises the officers
of the road, and pusses out to the world
through devious and untraceable ways
"tips" of what is going to happen.
If an unpopular officer or agent of a rail
road company is about to be removed or
transferred to some post less desirable than
the one he has occupied, he generally
gets his first information about it from tho
mysterious "stove committee." A con
spicuous illustration of this fact may be
cited in the case of Charles Francis Adams,
who was deposed from tho presidency of
the Union Pucitlc. The news of his pros
pective fate, which was wafted into the
office of Tho Times from the well xstcd
"stove committee, ' met with reieateil de
nials from Mr. Adams, but ho was finally
obliged to admit its correctness.
But to return to tho list of railroad nick
names. The "stove committee" conjured
up by the genial general manager evolved
the following list:
Big Four The Cleveland, Cincinnati,
Chicago and St. Louis railroad.
Nickel Plate New York, Chicago and
Tho Soo Minneapolis, St. Paul and
Sault Ste. Marie.
Pannhandle Pittsburg, Cincinnati and
Queen and Crescent Cincinnati, New
Orleans and Texas Pacific.
Monon Louisville, New Albany and
Nypano New York, Pennsylvania and
Maple Leaf Chicago, St. Paul and Kan
Clover Leaf Toledo, St. Louis and Kan
Cotton Belt St. Louis, Arkansas and
Blue Grass The Kentucky Central road.
Tho Sunset Southern Pacific railway.
The Consolidated New York, New
Haven and Hartford.
Katie Missouri, Kansas and Texas.
' Big -andy Elizabechtown, Lexington
and is. Sandy.
SIGNIFICANCE OF TITE NAME3.
The above list includes the nicknames
most In use. In addition to these there is
a very large number of abbreviations of
the names " railroads which are a part of
the railroad parlance of the day. There is
the Central, for the New York Central and
Hudson River raid; West Shore, for the
New York, West Shore and Buffalo; Erie,
for New Y'ork, Lake Erie and Western;
Lickawanna, for Delaware, Lackawanna
and Western; Santa Fe, for Atchison, To
peka and Santa Fe; the Frisco, for St.
Jxiuis and San Francisco: R, T., for Rich
mond and West Point Terminal; Lake
Shore, for Lake Shore and Michigan South
ern; R. W, 0., for Home, Water-town and
Ogdensiurg, and the Plant system for the
Savannah, Florida and Western and the
Charleston and Savannah roads. There
are many others that the "stove commit
tee" could not reroem ber at the moment.
The Buffalo and Southwestern, which was
at first abbreviated to I!, and S. W., is now
known locally as "Brandy and Soda Wa
ter," and the Buffalo and Jamestown rail
road is familiarly spoken of as "Tho Jim
town." Most of the nicknames are slgnlflc-nt of
some peculiar feature or character u the
railroad systems to which they are applied.
For instance, the "Big Four" is applied to
a system formed by the consolidation of
four roads viz., the Cincinnati, Indianap
olis, St. Imis and Chicago; the Cleveland,
Columbus, Cincinnati and Indianapolis;
the Indianapolis and St Louis, and tho
Cairo, Vineenncs and Chicago DM The
Maple Leaf is appropriate bMMM n line
drawn around the various points to which
the Chicago, St. Paul and Kansas City runs
outlines a maple leaf. The Clover Leaf fits
the Toledo, St. Louis and Kansas City for
the same reason.
Tho Kentucky Ontral is called the Blue
Grass because it runs through tho blue
gross region. The Queen and Crescent
describes the Cincinnati, New Orleans and
Texas Pacific, inasmuch as Cincinnati is
called the Queen City and HfW Orleans
the Crescent City. The Nypan-i is simply
a condensed abbreviation of New York,
Pennsylvania un;l Ohio, as N. Y., P. and O.
The "Soo" takes its name from the Bull
Ste. Marie, and the Monon applies because
It is the main junction on the linn of the
lulsville, New Albany and Chicago.

The planet nearest the sun Is Mercury,
which is on the average about 115,400,0(10
miles away from that orb. Venus is nearer
to tho earth than any other pionet. When
both these bodies are on tho aaino side of
the sun, and when Venus is nearly ou the

A PERUVIAN RAILWAY.
Expensive to lam and Ut-pulr Because of
High Hills and Muuy Freshet,.
The Oroya road is a very remarkable
piece of engineering work, executed, jwr
haps, not wisely but too well. The ditfi
eulties surmounted are enormous. The
constructor, an American, Henry Meiggs,
Used to say, I was told, at certain arduous
points, "The lino has to go there, and if
we can't find a road for it we'll hang the
track from balloons." This remark illus
Irates the boldness and almost reckless
uess with which the lino has been built,
and even now, lino as the work is, it is in
Constant danger of destruction in many
parts. Every year sections of the line,
bridges and viaducts are swept away by
Hoods nud landslips which cannot bo fyore
secn. A waterspout bursts un n mountain peak,
an ImmenM volume Of water, mud ami
bowlders dashes dowu, and half an hour
later all is calm again; but the railway
truck has disappeared, or one i4 the
bridges will be fouud twisted into a knot
half a milo uway from its proper place.
For this reason the. line must always U
very expensive and difficult to keep in re
pair. The working of it Is also very ex
pensive OD account of the high price of
coal and tho quantity warned by the con
tiuuous firing required to force the train
up the stoop gradients.
As it is, tho locomotives have ii inch
cylinders, and the steam pressure all the
way has to be kept at 140 pounds to the
square inch. The maximum train is 11 vi
cars, weighing eight tons each and cany
ins; ten tous of cargo and in order to drag
this weight from fiton to Chicla the loco
motive burns sevet. tons of first class Rn
gllsh QOftL The maximum gradients are 4
per ormt. and the maximum curves V.V me
ters radius. This radius is found in all the
tunnels, of which there are forty between
Lima and Chicla, tho longest measuring
890 Batters. The number of bridges is six
teen, the longest being the Verrugas via
duct. The total distance from Callao to
Chicla. where the rails end, is, r-H'-j miles.
The Oroya lino, on winch the rworian
loan in 190 of 9,(60,090 sterling was ex
ponded, was not QnlsUOdfot want of funds,
and the portion of it that was completed
has never paid The original idea was to
carry tho line to La Oroya, in the t ran-.au
dine province of Junin, and the survey and
much of the earthwork mid tunnels were
executed ln-fore the money gave out iu
18T3. The summit tunnel through the
Paso de Galera, between 1,100 and 1,1300
meters long, is open, and from the plains
it appears to l an interesting piece of
work, being on a vertical curve, with If ,
percent, gradients ou the Pacific slope of
the Cordillera, and just enough for drain
age ou the Atlantic slope, where the Una
rana lor ti'j kilometers with gradients of
from i to 4 per cent., and then for the rest
of the distance to La Oroya, 43 kilometers
over easy ground.
The summit tunnel of the Paso de Gal
era is the lifty-cightli from Lima, it is dis
tant from Callao by the rails 104 miles,
and stands at a height of 4.M4 meters, or
15,700 feet above the level of the sea, thus
making the Oroya the highest of all the
projected transuudiue railways. -Theodore
Child iu Harper's.
The careful and conservative spirit which
! characterizes so much of the work doue in
England is shown in connection with the
recent splendid piece of work, the City and
South London railway. While iuauy of
the details of the lino are carried out with
tho perfection of modern electrical skill,
there are some points in connection with it
which are so much behind modern prog
ress as to appear in a moosuro inconsistent
with the enterprise which characterizes
the rest of the work. It appears that the
elevators leading to the underground sta
tions are operated by hydraulic power.
There is a good deal of dissatisfaction that
electricity has not bean used for this pur
pose. Nothing could be bettor adapted for
working lifts than motors, and the saving
in expense would have been considerable.
Unless the elevators are balanced there
is a plunger volume of high pressure water
wasted every time each hoist is used,
whereas if the motors were employed the
generator would need supply little more
than the power wasted in general friction.
Another fact which has been freely criti
cised is the use of an air brake where elec
trie power is availabre. It has been urged
that tho block system arrangements, nnd
the cut off of the supply from a moving
train in case of necessity, are objections to
If these are obstacles they can lie easily
overcome, and the special leads which sup
ply the carriage lamps could supply the
motive power for the brakes. It, is argued
that this combination iu the same plant of
hydraulic distribution, compressed air and
electric traction is a somewhat anomalous
one. New Y'ork Commercial Advertiser.

Digrn'ty In a Cat.
The heartless and deliberate rudeness of
the cat's behavior on occasion would, had
she been a man, have unquestionably justi
fied shootingatsijjht. Theeourtiers in the
most slavish palace of the east would have
rebelled had they received the treatment
she meted out daily to thonc who waited on
her hand and foot After a devoted ad
mirer had bunted breathless and bare head
ed over a largo garden and under a Mating
July sun, lest puss should lose her dinner,
and hail at last brought her into the din
ing room in his nrms,.thut cat, instead of
showing any gratitude, and instead of
running with pleasure to the plate pre
pared for her, has been known to sit bolt
upright at. tho other end of the room, re
garding the whole talole with a look of un
disguised contempt, her eyes supercillious
ly half shut, and a tiny speck of red tongue
protruding between ber teeth.
If the thing had not bwn so exceedingly
well done it. would have lieen simply vul
gar; an it was, it amounted to the most
exasperating form of genteel brutality Im
aginable. The company having been at,
last thoroughly stared out of countenance
and put down by this monstrous exhibi
Hon of international radanaaa, the cat in
question slowly rose to her feet, and dig
ging her claws well into tho carpet,
stretched and balanced herself, while
yawning at the same time with lazy self
satisfaction. After this she proceeded by
the most, circuitous rout-obtainable to the
pinto put out for her, evidently Intending
it to Is-, clearly understood t hut she held
its ptaaaoca under the sideboard to ii due
In some way or other to her own skill and
forethought, and that she, in no sense
regarded herself as beholding to nny other
person. --London Spectator,

CiiiNTLKMKN : When about ten or twelve yeari
old 1 was troubled with trucks ucross the palm of
my left bond, and when they honied the trouble
broke out on my head, and every winter it would
come out as a .sort of tetter and make scales all over
my head, 1 have not been free from it a single
winter since, but it was worse la-d winter after 1 had
the grijiiK?, f'-r then it came out in spots all over my
body. I had a doctor examine me, and he told ine
that there was no cure for ma. I irot worse ami
worse. Scales would form over the sores and then dry out until they would
craelt and pop open, showin-,' a watery mutter. My skin was all like a dry
wrapper, It felt as though it h id dried on me. The scales were so lad that
they would collect in tho bed aud have to lie shaken out. It was about this lime
that I commenced using B. 3. B. I wa3 so baJ that I was ashamed to take my hat
oil before a neighbor. I bad used five bottles of another medicine without noticing
any effect; but when I commenced to take B. B. B. the sores came out thicker
thin before, and they burucd like Are ; they were immense blotches of tire that
would burn so I could not sleep. The way they burned and itched can cot be
told, and I hope no ouo else may over know from experience, The only relief I
could get wua from washing tlio sores with some B. B. B. ,
I stuck to the mediciue and was on the fourth bottle before I could sec that I
was really belter, although I knew that it was better to get such rottenness out of
my blood than to have it stay there. I did say once that I wished I bad DeW
commenced taking A B, B., but my wife encouraged me, and to-day 1 thank her
for tho advice, fur I am in good health now, aud I'don't believe 1 ever would lime
been wilU my blood in such a condition as it was. ... ,
My scalp now is clean and clear of all scales and tetter, and on my body there
are only small spots to show where the sores were, and these shjIs are free from
scales. 1 do not doubt but that the cure will lie perfect.
I am now on the sixth bottle aud will take more until every spot is gone. 1
firmly believe that Burdock Bood Bitters will cure the worst disorders of the blood,
for such certainly was mini;.
