A BAGGAGE MAN'S YAEN.
HE WORRIED OVER A COFFJN HE
WAS CARRYING IN HIS CAR.
Thought the Box Contained Taacott, the
Alleged Murderer, and Had It Opened.
The Dlncovery Caused His Surprise and
Grief It "Was His Mother.
"Wo are not a superstitions setgener
erally," remarked a grizzled baggage mas
ter of the Pittsburg, Port Wayne and Chi
cago road the other day as he lighted a
cigar in the Grand Pacific and aat do-wn
for a talk.
"We are not superstitious, but become
accustomed more or leu to the presence of
death in the corpses that are transported
in the baggage cars, for a day scarcely goes
by but we hare from one to three 'stiffs,'
as the boys call them, on board. Yet there
is always a check held on one's impulses.
A follow don't feel like letting himself out
naturally when he knows that a corpse is
in the same room with him, or at least I
can't, and I'm nearly as tough as they
grow, for I've been on this road for fifteen
"What I wanted to tell you about hap
pened several years ago. At Fort Wayne,
as we were coming west, there stood a cof
fin box on the trucks ready to be loaded
into the car. It was marked for Denver,
and we were to carry it as far as Chicago.
By the side of the trucks, with one hand
upon the box, stood a young and well
dressed man, with a band of crape tightly
pinned around his silk hat, and known at
a glance to be in charge of the remains.
Whenever any one accompanies the corpse
wo alway handle it silently and gently
out of respect for their feelings, for there's
few of ub but have buried our own, and
know how to feel for a fellow who borrows
for a loved one.
TOE SAD FACED STRAKGEtt.
"After showing tickets the young man
asked permission to ride in the baggage
car and was refused, of course. He went
away hurriedly and disappeared in the
depot. We saw no more of him until the
train was ready to pull out, when ho ap
peared at the door with a permit to ride in
the car signed by the superintendent.
That settled it with us. His box was part
ly covered with trunks, as the car was
crowded and the run unusually heavy
" 'Please remove those trunks.' was the
first thing the geutleman said.
"We complied with the ivqueht, and the
passenger sat down beside the box on a
grip, resting his elbow upon the cover
toward the head. He never stirred from
that position, unless it was to lay his
cheek against the rough pine boards, and
I saw tears trickle down his handsome
face. Who was it covered there?
" 'Say, Tom,' said my mate on the run,
that fellow's cither mighty soft on the
tiff or else he's got a live pal in there what
he's gettln' away with.'
"That was a stunner. The papers were
full of just such happenings, and possibly
this fellow bad T:vcott cooped up there
and was spiriting him oat to the mount
ains. I didn't propose to allow anything
like that to get by me, and so I laid a
plan to trap the fellow and turn him and
his charge over to the police. The more I
thought over tho matter tho stronger I was
convinced that tho attention paid to the
remains was unnatural and put on.
OPENING TOE BOX.
" 'Will you wish a lunch at Valparaiso?'
1 inquired of the stranger when we reached
" 'Will they bring it to the car?' said tho
" 'No,' I replied, 'but if you want to
order dinner we will send one for three in
tead of two.'
" 'Will everything bo afe in hore?' anx
iously asked the faithful watcher.
" 'Oh, yes; we'll Iock the car.'
" 'All right, I wish you would make an
order for me,' and without another word
ho turned back to his charge, and I don't
believe he stirred in that forty mile run.
"Instead of sending nn order for dinner
I telephoned the sheriff of Porter county
to be at tho depot with tools to open a
coffin box and coffin, for I thought I had a
prize. I then instructed the young man
who was helping mo to jump out of the
car as soon as wo had loaded the baggage,
and to go into the eating house with the
stranger and keep an cyo on him.
"Whon we reached Valparaiso there
were twenty minutes for dinner, and it took
us but a few minutes to load up the trunks.
The sheriff stepped up and asked me if I
w.'is the baugago man. I gave him the wink
" 'You will find the baceaue man here
after dinner,' and swung out on the plat
form, followed by my assistant and the
westerner. The sheriff, who caught the
cuo, was persistent, and so, calling to tho
others that I would be in in a minute,
went into the baggage room and around
the other side of the train, gaining en
trance to tho baggago car through the op
posite door from which we had left, and
which 1 had purposoly opened. All was
clear sailing now, and it took but a sec
ond to run the screws up and lift off the
DISCOVERED IIIS DEAD I'ARENT.
"There rested a rich coffin, and we both
drew back aghast as our eyes fell upon tho
plate whioh bore tho inscription
"'It looks liko sacrilege,' said tho
nheriff, beginning to unscrew that part of
the casket which covers the face. It was
a most generous countenance I behold.
The hair was sprinkled with gray, the fore
head, which was high and of marble white
ness, was partly covered with the stray
curls that had escaped tho comb. About
tho throat, otherwise unornamented. was
n strand of pearls clasped with a diamond
brooch of a pcouliar design. The dress was
silk. But the facel It seemed n part of
my life. Where had those features bent
over me? Where had thoso lips whispered
Jo me? Whore had I seen that brooch?"
The emotions of the old baggage master
overcame him, and for a moment his head
sank down into his hands, and his frame
trembled with the intensity of the feelings
he could scarcely repress. He finally
raised his eyes and continued in n husky
"The -sheriff quietly replaced the cover
ings our hands, had so eagerly removed.
"When the two came back I felt weak
and trembly like, and did not look either
of them in the face.
"I said to the stranger:
' 'Did you ever have n brother?'
never saw Mm. His name was Tom.'

ANOTHER AFRICAN EXPLORER.
IIo Wandered In IJniy JTacli-on Squnre
in Qtirst of tlio I',lio Kleiliunt.
He was squnrely built, was dressed in
nober blHck, liad n luxuriant dark beard
and his hair fell like a curtuiu over the
collar of his coat.
His bauds rented on a stout stick as he
sat on a bench m Madison square near the
spot where Gcorjie Francis Tram used to en
ergise his "Psycho," and one could not help
noting; in the stranger's eyes the faraway,
introspective look that characterises the
brooding Buddha or the philosopher who
dreams while awake.
As I was tryiusr to conjecture who or
what he nubt be a stranger stepped
briskly up behind me and said:
"Sit near him and keep him in conversa

back. He will tell you some great stories
about the Dark Continent."
Then he walked oil at a rapid pace.

where he was to create havoc with the fish.
He put on his fisherman garb, unpacked
and went into camp. The greenhorn drew
nigh and looked upon the city fisherman
with eyes of longing. The rod was con
nected. Mr. Jenney stopped suddenly. He
had lot or forgotten something. His fce
looked like a whitewashed fence joat after
a rain. He had forgotten his tines, flies
and hook. II rammed one hand in a

The rich blood that courses through
swift Mambrino Maid's veins comes to her
from all her lines of descent, and is a nota
ble combination of Hambletonian and
Mambrino Chief. She wai foaled in 1885
in Kentucky by Granvillo Cecil, aud her
sire was Mumbrino Startle, sou of Startle,
while her dam was Winnie Wilkes by
Bed Wilkes, and her grand dam Gypsy
Queen by Bourbon Chief. Her pedigree
shows three crosses to Mambrino Chief,
two to Hambletonian, and one each to
Henry Clay, Capt. Walker and American
Star, whilo such noted producers as Old
Lady, Little Miss and Jessie Kirk are rep
resented. Mambrino Maid's first turf work was at
Harrodsville, Ky., Aug. 1, 1889, when she
was beaten by Mattie Wilkc3. Before the
conclusion of tho month she had a record
of 2i23. At Dundeo park, near Pater
son, N. J., she lowered her record to 2.-21J
in June, 1800. At Belmont park July 1(1
she was beaten by Edith R,, but trotted
one heat in 2:181. Her Iowcct notch thui
far was scored at Cleveland in the Grand
circuit, .v l.en sho did a mile in 2:1"J. She
was victorious at Cleveland, Buffato and
Rochester, but was downed nt Pough-
kcepsio and Hartfonl by .Mocking Bird, al
though Mambrino Maid trotted In 2:18 and
2.17. She again equaled her record at
Springfield in the 2:22 class, and at tho
Philadelphia Driving park in September
voreted her old enemy Mocking Bird.
A riorWt'n Complaint.
"Tho bufiineM looks pretty nnd smells
mveet, but it ii a hard ouo to run," said a
Harlem florist to a friend who praised the
bunches ot gladiolus, tu&eroes and other
utumn flowers that filled his windown,
and who added, by way of a moral, that it
was a mush pleawntr way of making a
living than selling tH-eftewk or dishing up
