with his aid to pull Wats through,
though it meant a hard fight.
Slowly, very Blowly, for Wats put up
a good fight, tho fever gained a strong
hold on its victim. Gradually he grew
delcrlous; first only atl ntorvals, but
at Inst his reason was entirely gone.
His mind constantly wandered back to
his unknown past. He talked wildly
During tho heighth of hiB delerlum
ho would constantly raise himself to n
sitting posturo and listen Intensely for
n moment, then fall back on his pil
"You certainly heardthat train. You
certainly hoard It."
Three weeks had elapsed. Tho crisis
had passed. Wats, by tho doctor's or
ders, wob to got well, and ho gave
promise of obeying his orders.
It was a Sunday night. How very
woll it nil comes back to me. Wats
was sleeping peacefully In his upper
room nnd I stood in tho room bolow,
taking Homo parting Instructions from
tho doctor. Tho conversation turned
into n different channel and we talked
until tho "woe sma' " hours. We had
seated ourselves, the doctor facing the
door which led Into tho hall. The con
versation finally lagged and the doctor
roso to his feet to take his departure,
when" there was a soun of footsteps
on th stairs, and before we could make
a move, a white robbed figure sped
past tho door and on out into tho star
lit night, crying in a wild voice, "It's
come at Inst. Oh, My God! It's come!"
As if by one impulse and doctor and
myself started in pursuit of the flying
figure. Down the gravel path In
front of the house It sped on out Into
the dusty road, straight on towards the
railroad track. It ran with the speed
of tho wind and though the doctor and
I put forth our best efforts we could
not gain on it. The white clad figure
had Just mounted tho grade to the
track and started for that fatal curve
when tho shrill whistle of tho midnight
freight rang out on the air. It throw
up its hands and with a wild, inartlcu
lato cfy, sped on towards the coming
train. We shouted at tho figure, hop
ing to divert Its attention, but still
It ran on. JuBt as the doctor and my
self reached tho track, tho engine
picked up tho frantic shouting figure
and throw it to one side.
Tenderly wo picked up tho mangled
form and boro It home. The train was
heavily .loaded and was coming slowly,
so that Wats, for It was none other,
had not been killed. He Hvod, but that
was all. In tho morning consciousness
having returned, he asked for a priest
the leader of tho llttlo parish came and
wo left him alone with Wats. For over
an hour I could hear his weak, but
determined voice talking rapidly, as
though afraid that ho could not finish.
Gradually It grew fainter and fainter,
then died away- The door opened and
tho priest, with bowed head, camo out.
"HnB tho end come?" I asked, softly.
Ho nodded his head and crossed him
self. "Ho wished mo to toll you his story,"
ho said. "And now while It 1b still
fresh In my mind I will givo It to
Then It was I heard tho story of
Wats' life, strange, sorrowful, almost
tho llfo of a criminal, as It was. Some
day I will glvo It to you. but not now.
Wo laid him to rest In tho shadow of
thegreat pines, whore I had first seen
him, and placed a simple head stono to
mark tho spot. Often I camo to sit by
tho lonely grave, and wondor if anyone
over guessed tho secret It held. The
simplo head-stono tolls no tales and 1
know that neither tho old priest or
myself will glvo tho slightest Informa
tion that In that lonely spot lies tho
body of tho notorious train robber for
whoso arrest a reward of $5,000 was
offered but a short year before.
