the premeditated and prearranged
collision of two railroad engines, "in
the interest of science," hich took

mated by competent judges at any

but it was almost impossible to get
anything like an accurate estimate,
it being right on a prairie, but it
was the greatest number of people I
vise you, and you adyise your friends,
to get just as far from it as possible.

and about 5 o'clock two engines, to
each of which were attached six box
cars, came down the track, and each
was given a trial run of one mile in
the presence of the people, in order

Standing that way, under their
pressure of steam, they reminded
me of two prizs-fighters who had
met to shake hands before a fight.
Blowing their whistles at each other
two or three times, they began to

ple realized that the final set-to wes
at hand, and interest grew intense.
