During the winter of 1SG9 I was
cmploved as nisht operator in the
railroad office at D , Iowa. Tho
principal road between Chicago and
Council BlufTd runs through D ,
and ilm j$raat irregular night trains,
and the constant danger of collision
resulting therefrom, rendered the posi
tion of ntlit operator by no means an
easy one. It may be woll to mention
here, as necessary to the following
story, that besides the railroad olfiec,
there was also at D a bu-inws
oliiceofthe Union Company. This
wc always spoke of as tho "down
One stormy night, not far from 1 1
o'clock, I sat at my dek and, for a
wonder, id!. The wiroj had not call
ed for some time, and I was leaning
back in my chair, listennglo the wind
outside and reflecting on the loneliness
of my situation. The Eastern train
ha crossed tho river more than an
hour ago; all the depot officials had
gone home, and so far as I knew. I
was entirely alone in the vast building.
Finally, tirca of thinking, I picked
up tie evening paper, and glanced
listlessly over its columns. Among
other things I read the detailed ac
count of a fearful tragedy that had
occurred fifty miles up the river the
previous night. Thicc raftsmen, well
known as desperate characters in that
vicinity, had entered tho cottage of
one Matthews, a fanner living in an
iscoiatcd'spot had butchered the far
mer and bis children, terribly mal
tifated his wife, and then deparlcd a?
they came, having taken with them
whatever plunder was handy. What
infcre.ted me most was a full descrip
tion of the chief of the villainous tiio,
Tim Lynch. Here it in:
"Five bundled dollars reward will
be pat I for inform U;o:i leading to the
capture, (liad or alive, of Tim Lynch,
the rhig'i'a-lcr of the Mat hews trage
dy. Lynch is a remarkably large man
sis fe-t four inches in height, very
heavy and broid across tho shoulders.
Eyes greenish uray, with a dep scar
ovor the right one. Hair, wiry, black
and bfard of the .-ame color. When
la-t scon he wu dressed tn a black
Ivnsstuh hat, faied army overcoat,
pants of crarjuaii. and heavy boots,
The above reward will be paid to any
on-3 furnixhtiii positive inibruruiou of
Sheriff of Count-."
At the very instant I finished read
ing the adverti-ement. tlure occurred
the most remarkable coincidence that
has ever come under my observation.
I heard a heavy tread on the Mair,
and then the door opened and there
entered Tim Lynch ! The moment t
set eyo upon him I recognized him as
perfectly as if I had known him all my
life. The army overcoat and gray
pauts tucked into the heavy buots, the
massive frame and sbouiders, the
slouched hat pu'L-d down over his
t . ,1-
ngni eye' t0 coni-1 u"e b
all, a desperate huatea
look to bis forebodioji countenance
all were uot to be miitaken. I was as
certain of his identity as though he
had stepped forward, pulled off bis
.hat to show n:e the car, and told me
l his name.
To say bat I was not alarmed at
thi sudden and unwelcome intrusion
would be untrue. 1 am cot a brave
Uuao. suu my prc-nt siiuatiOD, alone
in the depot with a hunted murderer,
was by no taeaas reassuring. My heart
bcit violently, but Ircui mere Force of
habit I arose and asicU him to le

with his head toward the battery,

'Well," 1 toswered with a faint

I hastened to say that the charge
could just us well be paid at the other
cod by his friend.
"Utnpli 1 Plaguey little you'll get

is it to go?"
"I want you to tell Jim Fellers, of
Cohoe, that the bull quit here las'
night, and other chccp'll be eloe ou
As he delivered this sentence he
looked at me as if he expected me to
be mystified. Rut I thought it best
not to appear so, aud I said carelessly;"
"I suppose you are a dealer in stock
and this is your partner? Ah, sir. the
telegraph helps you fellows out of
many a iharp birg.iin."
"Va'as," he answered, slowly, evi
dently pleased with the way I took it.
"Va'as, that's um. I'm sendin down
a lot o' stock. Bought it dog cheap
over in Genesee yesterday. As purty
a lot as ever you see."
I turned to my instrument. What
was to be done ? Though ours was a
rSilroad office we often sent business
messages ; and if I did as usual How I
should probably get rid of my unwel
come visitor without further trouble.
But in the short conversation with h tm

I was only a poor salaried operator,
trying to save enough to marry in the
spring. Five hundred dollars would
do mo a great deal of good just now
to say nothing of the eclat of the
thing. But how was it to be accom
plished ? Here was I, alone in the de
pot with a man big enough to whip
bis weight in such little men as I was
several times over. Any attempt to
secure him single-handed was not to
be thought of. But I could not etcusc
myself, nnd going out, fasten him in.
No: well I knew from the distrustful
look in his face that any proposal of
mine to leave the room would be per
emptorily objected to by him. What
Why, simply this, I would telegraph
Jo the down-town station. Rut alas !
That very day the connection between
the two offices had been cut for re
pairs. It was seldom u-ed at any time

only a question of a few seconds more
All these things went through my
mind with the rapidity of lightning
as I went to the battery. Lynch re
garded me froai the corner of his un
covered eye with a suspicion that
made me shake in my shoes. As "t
sat down be rose aud came to my side.
"Look a-here, yonn'g feller," he
hissed in my car, and his breath was
sickening with the fumes of liquor,
"perhaps ye mean fair cnotich I hope
ye do for ycr own sake. Rut I don't
understand' nothin 'bout theji telly
grams a id I jist want to tell ye that

Eternal U.d! uf ye go back on me I'll

cold muzzle of his revolver on my
cheek. Perhaps my voice trembled a
little, but I was srill unmoved in Efy
resolution, as 1 replic 1:
"Never fonr, pin- I'll tell bim all
about the stock." He nutterd some

asked, and almost instantly eacae back
a reply in the affirmative, Then
with a-trembling hand I rattled off my
message: '"For the love of Gfod, tele

he insisted upon going now.
"What's that sijjnerfy? " Inquired
my companion as the ticking cea-ed,
and I replied that the clerk at Cohoe
had just written off the message ami
sent it out. He seemed satisfied, and
settled back in his chair, where he sat
in sullen silence, his jaw working up
and down a he chewed the wc- d.
0, how slowly tho minutes crept
along ! The suspense terrible. I sat
and watched the minute band of the
clock, and five minutes seemed as ma
ny mouths. My companion seemed
nervous, too. He moved uneasily in
Ain't it about time yer heard from
Jim?" ho asked, at length.
We sfcsll get word from him m a
few moments nQW," I answered, and
fell to watching the clock again Five
minutes moro passed. Lynch got up
and began pacing to and fio across
the room. At length he paused and
"Tick, tick, tick?" tie battery call
ed out, and I listened to the message:
"Keep cooL Gould has gone for the
police." Strange it was, wasu't it,
that I should sit there and talk
through 250 miles of space with a man
not a half a mile from from me.
"I don't believe I'll wait any more.
I've got to see a man down at the
Pennsylvania House, and he'll be abed
if I don't got thar pretty soou."
"Hold on a moment, and I'll see
what they arc up tn," I cried hastily,
and I touched tho key again. "Make
haste," was my message. "I shall
lose him if you do not. Not a moment
to spare." Straightway camo the re
ply, short but encouraging : "A rquad
of police started for the depot five
minutes ago." Thank Heaven I They
ought to be here now. I looked at
Lynch nnd thought of the five hau

"Coming to the office at Cohoe. He
probably has an" answejr for you."
"An answer for me? Jim Fellers?
What should he answer for?" Lyuch
stood in stupid thought for a moment,
and then he looked at mc with a dan
gerous light in his eye.
"Look a here, young feller," he
cried, "It's my private opinion you're
lyin' to mo. And efyo are" here he
uttered a horrible oath "I'll cut ycr
skulking heart out I I, don't know
anything about that thar maaheen,
but I swar Jim Fellers hain't nothin'
to answer. Slore like he'd git tp an'
scatter when he heard that message."
He stood glaring at mc as he utter
ed these words, his hand on his revol
ver. I cannot account for it. As I be
fore remarked, 1 am a timid man by
nature. Rur. this action only made me
bolder. Everything depended upon
keeping him a few seconds longer. It
must be done at any cost. I tried a .
"What do you mean, sir?" I ehout
ed, rising, "by coming into this office
and talking in that style ? Do you
think I'll endure it ? Leave this room
at once, sir, or I'll" and I advanced
threateningly toward him. Mv unex
pected attitude seemed to aurise bim
moro tlian anything else, bat silenced
his suspicions. He put his bands in
his pockets and delivered a loud Iurh
in my face.
"Wal, wal, my bantura, ye need not
get so cantankerous. Who'd thought
such a little breeches as yoa had tieh

could chaw yen ap 'thoat making two

"Well, sir," I said still apparently
unmollified "either sit down and hold
