LOVE IN A SIGLNAI BOX.
Tony Smith had said his lost good-by
to the little knot of acquaintances he
had madein the country during tho two
years he had been night operator in tho
"tower." It was with no email degree
of pleasure he had' repeived advice from
the division operator that ho would bo
transferred to a yard office, and that his
successor would be eenfc on at onco to re
lieve him. That samb day tho new man
arrived. Smith mot him at tho station.
The newcomer was a quiet, well built
young fellow, rathor "handsome, Tony
thought. He toolrliizn tip to tho tower,
introduced him to tb.8 (lay men and in a
general way explained the o&culiarities
of the blocks controlled by them, hew
the third track wits ussd jointly- by east
bound aud west bound trains, how, as
tho next tower east was a number of
miles distant, tho rule ofallpwing but
ono train in a block at a time was modi
fied and so on, to all of which the
stranger listened attentively.
Tony then offered to take him up to
the farm where ho had been boarding,
saying that no douh ha could arrange
to stay there if he liked, and as the neigh
bors had a prejudice against the night
operators on account of their untimely
hours it would be tho bast plan to go
with him. It was but a Bhort distance
down the track and up tho lane to tho
house. As the pair drew near a young
woman who had been sitting on the
porch rose, and with heightened color
as she saw the stranger would have re
treated had not Tony palled her famil
iarly as Mollie and bade her await their
coming. Ho introduced his companion,
Will Kaye, as his successor, and after a
few words had been spoken the maiden
went in search of her father, while the
two operators seated themselves on the
edge of the porch.
Smith was one of that class of men
who make confidants of every one,
judging all from their own free hearted,
generous standpoint. Kaye listened to
his talk with a quiet smile, which grew
more pronounced and kindly as his
companion proceeded. The twain were
the best of friends cro tho farmer
came up from tho potato patch, hoe in
hand, to welcome his new guest. Mollie
accompanied him, and now, when Kaye
got a good look at her, he was more than
aniiou3 to take the place of Smith at
the farmer's table.
That night Tony and Kaye went to
gether to the tower, and the day men
leaving at 7 o'clook"gave them undis
puted possession for the nest twelve
hours. There was little time for con
versation that night. What between
the usual number of estra freights in
both directions causing many train
orders, and the necessary explanations
of the working of the blocks, Tonj' was
kept busy. He noticed, however, that
the new man was a good operator, and
although he said that he had never work
ed on train wires, quickly grasped the
details, and before morning was work
ing the semaphores and notifying the
tower ahead of passing trains with tha
regularity of a veteran. Promptly at 7
o'clock the next morning they were re
lieved by the daj- men, there being two
operators on duty in daylight, the work
being heavier. Tired ard sleejjy the
night men were soon in bed at the farm.
During the afternoon isijith left for
the east in high spirit'-.. Whon supper
time camo the gap made by his absence
brought Moliia nest-to Kaye. Her fresh
beauty and light 6pirit3 pleased tho
stranger, and as he started to work carry
ing the pail containing the lunch pre
pared by her plump hands he felt highly
gratified at his good luck. Once in the
tower, however, this elation vanished,
for his new surroundings made him ex
ceedingly nervous, and being compelled
to "break"' once or twice when he failed
to understand' a rapidly transmitted
word he had tha pleasure of hearing a
sarcastic message flush ever the wires
about "the plug that took Tony's place
at Long HoliDw."
Time rolled away, and Kaye became
accustomed -to -the psjtionin-which he
had .been placed. At -firt he found it
lonely to an intense ileor-ee in the tower
as the night crept on, and once or -twice
ha was very uneasy wheu tramps Bad
begged him through the open window to
permit them to come up atiti have a
Knoke. The rules forbidoingodmittance
to the tower were stringent, but apart
from this Kayo would, pot have allowed
the nomads to enter. Many and many a
night as he eat in his gls-s cased apart
ment he had let his eyes wsuder to the
farm house which sheltered Mollie, and
his mind following bis sight was filled
with thoughts boding no peace to him
self. Long after the midnight hour had
passed he used to tilt his chair back and
smoke, his braa Ued with teeming
tnougnts such as come only m tne-qnicc
of a summer evening. Anon his call
would come from the instruments and
instantly he w.13 alert and active.
"Thirty-one passed west' wires the ope
rator in the tower-above, and with his
hand on the semaphore signal he awaits
the coming of the train. Soon he hears
a- rear in the distance, and 3 moment
later the headlight of the express
Cashes afar up the track, ne pulls the
lever to "clear," the train rushes by, and
throwing open the key ho notifies the
offiLaheaa and the.one.in ths rear, that
tfie train nas passed. So all nignu long
the Tontine continues.
His hours of work-Ieft-binr free only
in the afternoon, and of all times that is
the worst for an infatuated young man
thrown constantly in company with a
maiden whose household duties allowed
her freedom ai? the same hours. Need
less to say that love followed. Often as
Kaye sat at night in his eyrie he caught
a glimpse of a light waved to and fro in
an upper window of the farm house, and
knowing full well the good night signal
of his sweetheart, he replied with a
quick movement of the semaphore.
One night about half-past 12, just
after a heavily laden freight had passed
east and when all the country was
wrapped in slumber, he sat leisurely
smoking, his eye, as usual, resting on
his beloved's home. Suddenly some
thing caught bis gaze, and straighten
ing up he looked intently at the farm
house. A tiny light was hovering at
one end. Even as he looked it grew
clearer and brighter. In an instant he
realized that the old homestead was on
fire. Oh, what a struggle followed in
the bosom of the operator. To leave
the tower might mean certain death to
the scores of passengers on tho express
now due, for the freight had not yet
passed off the block; to stay where he
was would as surely cause the inmates
of the dwelling to perish.
For a moment, but only a moment, he
was undecided; then, throwing open the
key, he called tho towers above and be
low him. "For God's sake, send help,"
he nervously repeated; "a farm houso is
on fire and I am alone." He added his
signature and closed the key. In an in
stant the receiver began to cliok. "Can
not help you; am all aloue," came from
the westward tower. A moment later
the clicking began again: ''Extra freight
took middle aiding here to clear No. 10;
engineer and conductor just left tower;
will run back light on west bound track
with full crew to put out fire."
The news came from the office east.
Kaye glanced at the house. The Same
was becoming larger and the smoke was
beginning to roll up in clouds. "No. 10
passed east" comes from the instrument.
Kaye automatically put his hand to the
semaphore and peered out along the
track. It was five miles to the next
tower and he knew that ten minutes
would be required by the freight engine
to cover the distance. The seconds
seemed interminable. Would relief never
come? A muffled roar, momentarily in
creasing, gladdened his heart for an in
stant, but hopes faded out, for the sound
came froin the west, not from the east.
In another moment the express dashed
by, the tower shivering as the heavy
oleepers rattled over the track. No use
to hold it, he thought. Even in the time
of agony he did not forget to send notice
of the train passing. The flames were
increasing. Would tho engine never
come? Again he peered up the track.
No light yet. Heavens! Had they re
fused to come after all?
A moment later tho shrill tooting of a
steam whistle not a hundred yards away
broke forth, and before Kaye realized it
tho engine was standing ut tho tower,
the whistle going like mad, while half a
dozen men were climbing the fenco and
hastening to tho fire. He had forgotten
that the engine was running backward
and would show no light.
Tho farmer's family were all saved and
the grimy train hands were back at their
posts inside of an hour. Never before or
since did the operator undergo such sus
pense as ho did in the quarter of an hour
prior to the coming of the freight en
gine. Moilio has since become Mrs.
Kaye. Philadelphia Times.
Taste is not equally distributed over
tho whole surface of tho tongue. There
are three distinct regions or tracts, each
of which has to perform its own special
office or function. The tip of the tongue
is concerned mainly -with pungent and
acid tastes; the middle portion is sensi
tive chiefly to sweets or bitters, while tho
back or lower portion confines itself en
tirely to the flavors of rich, fatty sub
stances. This subdivision of faculties in
the tongue makes each piece of food un

must be successively passed before it is
admitted into full participation in the
Tho first examination gets rid of sub
stances which would be actively and im
mediately destructive to the tissues of
tho mouth and body; tho 6econd dis
criminates between poisonous and chem
ically harmless food, and the third
merely decides tho minor question
whether the particular food is likely to
prove wholesome or indigestible. The
sense of taste proceeds, in fact, upon the
principle of gradual selection and elimi
nation; it refuses first what is positively
destructive, next what is more remotely
deleterious, and, finally, what is only un
desirable or over luscious. Hall's Jour
