I believe there is no class of people
who owe their safety so mach to that
strange sympathy whioh exists between
Datare and mao as the locomotive engi?
neer. His nerves are coustantly wroagbt
ap to so intense a pitch of excitement as
to roder him peculiarly sensitive to the
slightest premonition of danger; and
my theory is that ever" man who runs a
locomotive should have this highly
strung, finely-wrought organization. If
this were the cuso, and every one would
heed the still, small voice, warning of
approaching evil, there would be fewer
acoidents thau thero ure ander tho ex?
isting Btato of things.
Almost any railroad mau will toll you
of instances which have come under his
own observation where nome poor fellow,
just before the fatal blow which launched
him into eternity, said, "I am blue," "I
feel as if something were going to hap?
pen," or something of the kind. I re?
member a gay, merry boy, the pet of the
train, who stopped singing a comic socg.
saying, "Don't tease mc, I'm lonesome,"
and, jumping off the engine, and Yun
' uing ahead, was caught between two
freight cars, and killed within three
minutes after the words left his lips, I
sincerely believe that by heeding those
warnings tho sad end might otten be
! I speak from a ten years' experience.
I have run all kinds of trains on all sorts
of roads. I have whistled for brakes,
; reversed ray engine, and stopped my ex?
presa passenger truin, with ten heavily
loaded coaches, within twelve inches of a
broken rail, which would have sent us
all to kingdom come by the way of a
deep, rocky gorge below us, had I not
baited. I once reversed my engine, and
backed a loug freight truin up a heavy
grade, wheu running upon direct ordere
given me by the President of the road,
when, had I gono ou half a mile furthei
around a carve, wo should have rac
into an excursion train going ou a pic
One dismal, foggy night I stopp?e
suddenly, and taking my luntern wen
out, spying the track ahead, well know
ing I should find something amiss, enc
lying across the rails, only a few fee
from the cow-catcher, was a watchman
who had been knocked down and badlj
injured by a train just ahead of us
And at another time, ou going ahead t<
look for danger, I found a tremendou
great rock that bad rolled down on th<
track from a ledge above as. I have nt
explanation to offer for theee siugula
presentiments; they come across mo all u
once, and, as it were, compel mo to obe;
them. I have never had one play m
false, aud bavo never met with a soiiou
The strangest and most anaocountabl
adventure I ever bad was on the St
and St- Railroad. It was in tb
opening of the year, the frost was com
ing out of the ground, making the trac
infernally rough. The trains were a
behind time. Everybody was cross
and, to increase my discomfort, my rc
gular fireman was off-down with th
ague-and in his place they had sent m
a miserable Dutch rascal, by the nam
of Weisbrunt. 1 fancied at first that
knew the fellow, and after keeping m
eye on him for awhile, I was sure I ha
had an experience with him, while rui
ning a construction train on thu Illino
Central, several years before.
He was a quarrelsome oar, who kept
fuss constantly brewing among the mei
and I had used my influence to get hil
discharged. He had sworn vengeanc
then, and I was reasonably certain thi
he meant mischief now. There ha
been, for some time, a systematic roi
bery of freight going on all along tl
line of the road, and I, in oommon wit
most of the engineers, was playing d
tective, in addition to my usual dutie
Some rather suspicious actions on tl
part of my fireman caused me to suspe
him of belonging to the gang ot pim
derers, and consequently to be constan
ly on the alert as to his movements.
The particular night of which I wri
we had had no end of bad luck. Tl
trniu was an express freight traiu, at
the engine, which usually worked to
charm, had raised particular hob all da
She would not make steam, the fire w
loose and would not burn, the puta
bothered, and altogether in my heart
onlled it all the fault of my German dc
of a fireman. Ho seemed to do as w
us ho oodla, and swore in Dutch, hi?
and low, roandly enough to have run t
steam gauge ap to the highest notch,
that hud been all it required. We we
several hours behind time, and the nig
had aet in dark and rain}', when
stopped at Evota.
All at once I missed Weisbrunt frc
hie post, and a few minutes after hen
him groaning piteously in the reur
! the train, and running back found h
on tho groand, rolling and soreami
and behaving generally like a person
the most excruciating agony. He sa
in explanation, that he went back to I
caboose for a lunch, with one of I
brakemen, and slipping on the v?
half-icy step, had fallen and broken
ankle. We attempted to put him in
caboose to oarry him. where he co
have surgical help, but he made sue
row that we were compelled to le
him with the station agent. I was ii
dilemma indeed. We were short of h
before this happened. I could not
the engine myself, and for a min
hardly knew what to do.
Then I thought of Jimmy MoCart
an Irish lad, a bright, pleasant little
low, who often rode with mo when I
switching ut this station, und who,
huudreds of boys, imagined working
a railroad to be perfeot felicity; am
for tho sako of hearing him talk,
promised, as Koon us ho was old chou
to gotvhim a job. Now, I tbongli
could inuinig? with his help until I c.
get sumo ono stronger, aud I made
possible basto to tho miserable sin
where ho lived, with bis mother, to i
him up. I foetid tho wretched p
illuminated by candies stuck in O'
nook and corner, und ?bo old won
apparently in the laet extremity, sur?
rounded by a screeching, groaning, howl?
ing crew, who drank, smoked, wailed,
danced, and went on generally after the
manner of this olass of Irish when
there is a poor sonl taking its departure.
Jimmy was crouched on the foot of the
bed, but at sight of me sprang forward
with a glad ory. I hurriedly stated my
errand, and attempted to beat a retreat.
Bat Mrs. McCarthy had heard my name,
and in a faint voioe showered blessings
upon me for coming to take care of poor
little Jimmy, and learn him to be an en?
gineer. "And, Jamie," she said, over
and over, "I shall watch over yon, up
there, and if there is any danger I shall
lot you kaow it." Her anxiety for thia
boy seemed to be her onlyoare in leaving
the world, which hadbeeu one of trouble
for her. And now she insisted he should
go with mo at once. Under different
circumstances, I should have hesitated
about taking him from his inothor'e
death-bod, but then it seemed the kind?
est thing I could do.
"I shall live until you come back ul
day-light, Jimmy," she said, and wc
made tho bost of our way back to thc
engine, to find that ia my absence the}
had looked over the train, and found i
tire broken to one of the cars which wai
loaded with valuable liquors, and we hat
no alternative but to leave it. I econ tee
mischief, and whispered my Bospioioni
to tho conductor, but he only laughed a
my fears; said the car was new, and wa
locked and sealed, and even so big i
devil as Weisbraot couldn't do mud
harm with a broken leg.
So, at exactly 10 o'clock at night, w
started for the Junction, where we turne?
round, took wood and water, ate a squar
meal, hitched on to another expr?s
freight, and started back, making a rouoi
trip us soon as possible, sad thea Iayioj
over for tweaty-foar hours.
Everything went finely, the engin
never worked better, and at exactly 3 ii
the morniDg we stopped as usual on ou
return, at Kasson, a little station to
miles from Eyota, for wood.
It was raining like great guns. I ha
looked over one side of my maohiae an
going round the front end, I saw an ol
Irish woman leaning wearily against th
wood-pile. 1 wondered at her presenc
there at that time of night, and as sh
stood directly within the radius of tl
bull's eye, I noticed her brown petticoai
and clumsy shoes, the plaid shawl crosse
ovor her bosom, her white cap front ac
the handkerchief arranged so as to hie
all of her face, but the dull, heavy, blt
eyes, which followed my every mov
Something about the look strack rr
unpleasantly, and gave me a chilly, ui
easy sensation, for which I blamed m;
self and called myself nervous, and ge
ting down the opposite side, out of tl
range of those, leaden eyes, I finish*
my oiling, and made all ready for star
iug. After we were' well under way,
ohanoed to look behind me, and ther
leaning against the tender-box, was th
same old woman.
I was mad for a moment. "Jimmie
putting on airs," I said to myself. 1
shall have to give him a lesson in hua
lity, if ho takes on dead-heads at tl
early stage of his career. I will not st<
to pat her off. I will only give him
understand the same thing mast not ha
pen again." She did not seem to mil
the raia at all; and aa Jimmie passed ai
repaesed her, intent upon his dattes, tb
seemingly took not the slightest noti
of each other.
It waa a straight bit of road, with
good a track as any on the line, and,
was my canton* here, I was running va
fast, aad as I glanced round from til
to time, those strange, dall eyes nev
loft me, with their fixed, stony stare,
begaa to grow uneasy, aad the cc
chills went creeping down my spine.
The time was comparatively bat a f
minutes, bat it had seemed hours to n
when, all at once, she sprang forws
and called ont, "Stop, for your lift
and instantly swung herself down on 1
step. "Good God!" I cried, "she v
be killed 1" "Who?" said Jimmie,
saw no one." Looking down, I caui
a glimpse of her, standing as no huns
being could stand, after jumping fron
rapidly moving train.
The handkerchief was gone from 1
face, aad I recognized Mrs. McCarthy
I had been her a score of times. I
versed the ongine and we went forwu
to find the rails torn ap and cbaii
across the way in such a manner as wo
have thrown ne down the precipice i
the river. We went on to the stati
and, after considerable time and troal
found out the whole nefarious p
Weisbrunt was the leader of the bane
robbers, and they made Eyota tl
headquarters, as it was easy of acc?s
the river, and they could carry a'
their plunder by means of boats i
rafts. He had tampered with tho
gine, as he was determined not to ]
Eyota before dark, and was resolve*
have a share cf the cargo of liqoor.
He had feigned the broken limb
tho sake of being left, and while we v

of a mile in thirty seconds.
