fie sat and gazed with a placid mien
And a cheerful and contident smile
At the little square box with the "gem fifteen,"
And he said he'd bet his pile
That he could finger It out rieht thar ;
So he jumped the blocks about.
And then he remarked : "It's simple. I a war.
And I reckon I'll work it out."
So he tackled it sharp for an hour or more.
And his hands he ran through bin hair.
As h Jumped right up and fearfully swore,
And his eyes had a maniac's glare.
That he'd "be dashed if the dash, dashed fool
That Invented this aie;nal was here.
He'd smash his dash, dash, dashed skull.
And chaw tiff an end of his ear."
But after another hot hour had flown
The bead drops tiown Van to roll.
And he raved In a wav that, the people all ay,
Struck terror to each watching soul.
For Thirteen Fifteen Fourteen alas I
Were all that he Kot for hw pains :
So he frantically swallowed of poison his glass
Aud with a bullet he bored out his brains !
BY CAELOTTA PEEKT.
Into her Mfe a brightness, aweet and awlft.
Shone with a glad surprise;
Proudly, to meet the longed-for, royal gift,
She lifted happy eyes.
She saw the light of such a gloriona morn
As neVer dawned before;
Her heart, to welcome im the strange new
Flung open wide its door.
Tho blessed light, bcr wakened spirit throngh.
Thrills of great rapture sent;
For she had walked in shadowed ways, and
Full well what darkness meant.
And, as of old a statne thrilled with song
At rising of the sun.
She felt that in her heart, voiceless so long,
Life's music had begun.
She Heard rare melodies around her roll.
Tender and sweet, as when
The stars of the morning sang; and from her
Up rose the glad Amen.
One little day she walked In perfect llgftt,
And wore It like a crown ;
One little day she sang her aonga then night
Smldcnand swift came down
Canio don n and closed about ber like ft pall.
And shnt out all the day
Shut out the liitht, the warmth, the. aJoom,
That made life glad and gay.
And so of old, at setting of tho sun,
On the cold lips of stone
Joy turned to grief, so, when her day was
f he made her bitter moan.
The gloom and darkuess.all her leing throngh,
l'ang of dumb anguish sent;
A.nd darkness was the darker since she knew.
At :aot what sunshine meant.

would Ihj at our phuro of destination.
The conductor had iiiii.-hed collecting
the fares, ami. seeing a vacant seat by
my side, hatl dropped into it, as if for
a rest at the end of a tiresome day's
work, lie made an entry in his note
book, closed it, placed it in his breast
pocket, buttoned Ills coat, folded his
nrms,thcn turned tome wi;h a friend
ly remark, as if now he felt at liberty
to lay aside all ollic'al dignity and be
sociable. 1 was glad to while away
the time, as the train was rushing
along in a darkness that concealed all
objects of interest without ; uinl so I
encouraged tin; conversation.

down in the cushion and bracing his
knees against the back of the seat in
front, "many years ago 1 was running
the night cxprc.s3 on Long Island,
front IJrooklyn to Greenport, a dis
tance of ninety miles, thccntiic length
of the road. The Long Island road,
was then a ouc-horse a Hair having on
ly a single-track, with switches at the
different stations to allow trains to
meet and pass. On the evening to
which 1 now refer, I started from
Jirookl vn at ten o'clock with the old
Constitution, long since broken up,
but then the u"jck engine of the road,
with a baggage or freight car and
three passenger cars. The night was
just as dark as a pocket, or, if any
thing, perhaps a little darker," he ad
ded, as if he had accurately tested the
internal secret of that useful, portion
of the dress.
"Tt must have been been very dark,"
"We were the -only Tegular train up
the road that night with the excep
tion of the Greenport express to
.Brooklyn, which was to s art at ten
o'clock, and meet n at Lakeland sta
tion, in the middle of the Island,
switching off tlieie to allow us to
Well, we were perhaps, six or eight
miles on onr way when I stepped out
on t:ie back platform of the rear car
to see if it was growing any lighters
We were then ";oiiig over a part of the
road which was as straight as an
arrow for a distance of four or five
miles. As I was looking LviCK over
tlwis stretch, I saw behind us, at the
distance of three miles or so, what I
knew to be the head light of an en
gine, as it was too bright for anything
else ; for of course I did not suppose
the government had been putting up
a lighthouse along the road."
"Probably not," said I.
"You may be sure I was a little sur
prised," -. said . tho conductor ; "for
there wasn't an extra train once a week
upon that road, and 1 knew there was
uor.e going out from Brooklyn that
night anyhow. I waited for a few
minutes, until I saw that it was really
an engine eoming, and, what was more,
was gaining rapidly on us, although we
were going at our usual rate of speed.
When I was satisfied of this fact I
hurried forward and said to the en
gineer, 'Jake, there is a train close be
"Jake dropped his oil-can and his
lower jaw at tho same moment, and
looked to see whether I was crazy or
"'Well, let the fireman attend to
matters here and como back and see,
"Wc hurried to the rear, and in a
moment Jake saw, as well as myself,
if there was any joke in the matter
we were the victims of one. and a
rather serious one, too ; for the train
in the rear had gained a full mile on
us while I had been forward. The red
cinders were pouring out of the
smokestack as Srom a blast furnace ;
the headlight threw a glare along the
road, burnishing the iron rails to our
very wheels. Close as he was upon
us, the engineer of the advancing train
had not given us the slightest signal
to warn us of his approach, and made
no response to our repeated whistles
of alarm, lie was violating all rule;
and, if he had determined to secretly
run us down, he would act just as he
was doing. Jake, at first seemed
struck dumb not so much because he
then thought of danger as at the cool
impudence of the engineer behind.
He looked as if he would like to
throttle him. His tongue after a
while got into working order, and he
broke out, 4 What docs that crazy fool
"'The engineer must be crazy or
drunk, said I. 'If he keeps on in that
way ten minutes longer he will surely
be into us; and I signalled the fire
man to put on more steam. 'What
business the train has upon the road
at all to-night is what puzzles me.
"'I wonder if it isn't an engine the
old man is sending down to Jamaica
to the shops for repairs? said Jake. 'I
saw the Ben Franklin standing on the
sidetrack with steam up just as we
started, "rom the way she overhauls
us there can't be much of a train be
"I did not know but that Jake
might be right, for .1 had seen the
Franklin standing in the depot when
we left. That cngino waa just as fast
as our own, and if it was without a
train attached, as Jake supposed,
might easily gain on u, as it seemed
to be doing. 'At any rate wc shall
sec when wo pass Jamaica station,
whether Jake's theory is correct,' I
thought, aud said to him.
"By this time the fireman, acting as
engineer, had given our engine all the
steam she would take, and wc were
slashing along at a lively rate, 1 tell
you," said llie conductor. "The good
people along the road who were out
of their beds must have thought that
a railroad Gilpin was riding another
race according to the new style. I
was angry enough to have scuta bul
ict at the crazy engineer following xtm,
and I determined that my first busi
ness the next day should be to com
plain to the superintendent of his fool
Lrdincss. I thought that possibly,
nelng for the moment his own master
and no longer under the. immediate"
orders of a conductor, he was indulg
!dg in a kind of railroad spree, and for
a lark was driving us to the top of our
speed, expecting to end the race and
his day 's Work at the same time at Ja
maica. "Well, we tore tii rough that sleep
ing village without stopping long for
refreshments I can assure you, and
then Jake and I looked to see our com
ical friend in the rear pull up at the
station and tike lodging for the night.
But we were mistaken in our guess.
Not a whistle was given by our pur
suer as a signal that he intended to
slop, not a signal of slacking was
shown; but on the contrary, he was
gaining upon us even when we were
doing our very le(. Sometimes, a

actually swaying and rocking with
speed like a yacht on the waves. The
telegraph poles, upon which the light
from our windows would glint in rhe
dense darkness, were flying behind us
nt every second. The sound of our
wheels as thev struck the ends of the
rails was a continuous hum. But, do
the best that it might, our emr'nie,
with its heavy train, was no match for
the light-weighted one behind that
was gaining upon us, and was not the
eighth of a mile oil. The glare of-.its
lantern shone brightly in our faces; I
thought Jake's face "looked a little
pale, and perhaps mine did too. Now
that our puruer did not halt at Ja
maica, we were entirely off ou r reck
onings, and wc could make no guess
as to the cause of our chase, vtor when
it would end. The prospect seemed
that we might be driven to the end of
the road if we were not overtaken and
smashed before it could be reach e J.
"'That's the Franklin' u re.' broke
out Jake once more. 'Nc other engine
on the road could overhaul us sis" we
are going now. What can that fool
of a Simpson mean by driving her at
such a rate? lie must be drunk. If
the. bos doesn't break him to-morrow
he won't get his deserts, lie will be
into us in two minutes.
"'You are right, Jake.' said I. 'Go

of those petroleum cans on the wood

"While Jake was forward on his er
rand I thought over the ,situatioiL
Here I was with a hundred or two
passengers under my care, all ignorant
of the danger which I knew they were
in. If we should be overtaken and
crushed in the rear the disaster would
be a serious one, and would probably
cause; the death or injury at least of
some of the passengers. If we were
not smashed in this way there was an
other and perhaps still greater danger
before us. The train of which I have
spoken, which left Greenport when
we left Brooklyn, was on i?3 -way to
meet us on the same track. It should
switch off at Lakeland in the. middle
of the island, and allow us to pass an
hour after we started, or at 11 o'clock.
It was now half past ten, and we were
close to Lakeland already, and would
pass there long before the arrival of
the Greenport train "beyond without
warning of our approach, and a col
lision in front as well as the rear
would bo the consequence.
"We reached aud tie w through tiic
Lakeland depot nearly half an hour
ahead of time. Of course the Green
port train was not there yet, but was
coming down the road. Our speed
was now a little ahead of any ever be
fore made upon the Long Island road.
The telegraph poles fairly danced be
hind us, and the bushes on cither side
of the track seemed a continuous wall
of fire as they were lighted up by the
flame which was pouring out of" our
smoke-stack. But dangerous as it was
for us to keep on, it was just as dan
gerous t slacken 'oced, and so on we
Tho conductor rolled his quid from
one cheek to the other, raised the win
dow by his side and expectorated into
the outer darkness, and became silent
for several moments as if burdened by
tho recollection of his former perils.
After waiting a reasonable length of
time for him to resume his story, I
said: "When the collision occurred,
vas it with tho train in front or in
the rear, or with both?"
"Oh, the collision!" said the conduc
tor. "Well, now you come to the rid
iculous part of the story. The colli
sion did not take placo at all," he said
in an apologetic tone, as if there ought
to have been a serious accident after
such preparation. "While I was stand
ing ou the platform thinking whether
I had better warn the passengers to
hold themselves ready for a shock,
Jake came from forward dragging af
ter him two petroleum cans, each of
which would hold a quarter of a bar
rel of oil.
" 'Now, then,' said Jake to me, "ir
you will oil one side of the track I
will try the other.' "
"I saw at once what his plan was.
Wc each brought the mouth of an oil
can as near to the polished surface of
the rail as possible and commenced
pouring ou it the koroscne. In less
than a minute a half mile of iron rails
on both sides was nicely oiled and a.s
slippery as the tongue of a Hebrew
dealer in second-hand clothes."
"You have raised my expectations
of a catastrophe so high that you have
been obliged to grease the track so as
to let them down again easily," said I,
for I felt a little nettled at the unex
pected turn the story had taken, and
was inclined to believe that the con
ductor was drawing largely upon his
imagination for tho facts.
"Why, don't you know that an en
gine can no more mako headway on a
greased track-than a torn cat climb a
step i roof covered with ice;" said the
conductor with a pitying glance atone
so profoundly ignorant of railroad
matters as myself. 1 slapped Jack on
the back, and said, 'Old fellow, your
cHiteness has brought us all out of a
"In a few seconds the lantern of the
train behind us was getting dim in the
distance. Wc slacked speed and back
ed down to sec what was the matter
wifch Simpsbn, as Jack said. There
stood the old Ben Franklin, puffing
and snorting and pawing like a m:.d
bull, tho driving-wheels . buzzing
around ou the greased track like all
possessed, but not gaining an inch.
Wo sanded the track and bore down
on the old machine. Jake was the
first aboard, spoiling for a good
chance at the engineer, Simpson. But
no sign of an engineer, fireman or any
ether living being was to be found.
Tho engine had only a tender attached
and although there was a full.head of
steam the fires were getting low. We
made short work in pushing back to
Lakeland. Wc reached the station and
got fairly upon the switch when the
Urtcuport train, which we should
meet there, came in, and were waiting
as if nothing had happened, anil as if
wc hadn't been fifteen miles out on the
road to meet it a few minutes before.
"The telegraph operator at Lake
land handed me a dispatch which read
as follows t,
