GUELDEN'S LAST DRINK.
I have traveled this road
every day of my. Hfe, ever
einceit was laid, In charge of
the San Francisco, tbe pretti
est and beat engiaa on the
line. It was a southwestern
road, running as we will say,
from A. to Z. At A. rnj moth
er lived, and ai Z. I 'had the
sweetest little wifej in the
world, and a baby thevery im
age ot its pa. I alwajs had a
dollar or two lo put py lor a
rainy day, and the boys spoke
of me as an odd kind cl man.
To be shut up with aii; engine,
watching with all yoireyes
and heart and soul, doit make
a conscientious man talkative,
and I never squandered my
leisure spinning yarns' and
listening to railroad Jokes in
the round-house. My wife's
name was Josephine, and I
called her "Joe." I
I never bad belonged to any
of the railroad clubsp other
organizations, and never should
if it hadn't been for Cjranty.
(iranby wa a neph sw of our
division superintendent, and
it's a failing of we men of the
road that we like to be noticed
by the fellows at the head
quarters, if only permitted to
touch the hem of their gar
ments. Uranby wasja showy
fellow, and often rodtj with me
from A. to Z. lie bad a good
opinion of me, and ab far aa I
knew we were friends. Once
he said to me:
"You ought to belong to the
Railroad Scientific Club, Quel
den.' .
4 Never heard of it," said I.
We meet once a fortnight,"
he replied, "and have a jolly
good time. Wo want practical,
ihinking men of ytfur sort,'and
I'll propose, ifyou like"
I was fond of such things,
and I had ideas that I fancied
might be worth something.
lint the engineer don't have
many nights or days to him
self, and the elub wonld have
one evening a fortnight from
Joe. I said:
'I will ask herif she likes it."
"Ask whom" he said.
,lJoe,;' said I.
"If every man had asked hi9
wife, every man's wife would
have said: 'Can't spare you,
my dear' and we should have
had no club at all," said Gran
by. But 1 made no answer. At
horn? I told Joe. She said: $
"Ishull miss you, Ned; but
you do love such things, and H
Uranby belongs to it they
must be superior men."
So I said "yes," and Qranby
proposed me. Tbursdry fort
night I went with him to the
rooms. Tbe real business ol
the evening was the supper.
I had always been a temper
ate man. I did not know what
effect wine would have on me,
but comiog to drink more of it
than I had ever before at the
club table, I found it put steam
on. Alter so many glasses 1
wanted to talk, and alter so
many I did.
I seemed like somebody
else, the words were so ready.
My ideas came to me and
were listened to, I made sharp
hits and indulged in repartee,
told stories and even came to
puns. I heard somebody say:
"Uranby, by George that's a
man worth having. I thought
him dull at first." Yet I knew
it was better to be quiet Ned
Guelden, with his ten words
an boar, than the wine made
wit I was.
I was sure flit when three
hoars after I stumbled up
stairs to find Joe. wai'ing for
me witn her baby on her breast
44 You've been deceiving me,"
said Joe; UI suspected it, but
wasn't sure. A scientific club
couldn't smell like a bar-room."
"Which means that I do,"
said I.
"And look like one." said
Joe, as the locked herself and
baby in the spare bed-room.
One night I was dressed in
my Sunday suit, ready to go to
the club, when Joe. stood be
fore me.
Ned," said she, "I never had
a fault to find with you before.
You've been kind and good
and loving always; but I should
be sorry we ever met ifyou go
on in this way. Don't ask me
what I mean you know."
4t's only club night," I said.
'It will grow," said she.
Then she put her arms
around my neck.
"Ned," said she, "do you
think a thing so much like a
belted and strapped down de
mon as steam is fit to put into
the hands of a drunken man?
And some day, mark my word,
not only Thursday night, but
all the days of the week, you
will be the same. I have of
ten heard you wonder what
the feelings of an engineer
who has about the same as
murdered a full train of peo
ple must be, and you will
know If you don't stop where
you are. A steady hand and a
clear head have been your
blessing all these years. Don't
throw them away. Ned, if you
don't care for my love, don't
ruin yourself."
My little Jcet She spoke
from her heart, and I bent
over and kissed her.
'Don't be afraid, child; I'll
never pain you again.
And I meant if; but at 12
o'clock thai, night I felt that I
had forgotten my promise and
my resolution.
I couldu't go home to Joe.
I made up my mind to sleep
on the club sofa, and leave the
place for good the next day
Already I felt my brain reel as
it had never done before. In
an hour I was in a kind of a
stupor. It was morning. A
waiter stood ready to brush my
coat. I saw a grin on bis lace.
My heart seemed to burst; my
band trembled; I looked at my
watch; I had only just five
minutes to reach the depotl
Joe's words came to my
mind. Was I fit to take care
of an engine? I was not fit to
answer; I ought to have asked
some sober man. As it was, I
only caught my hat and rush
ed away. I wis just in time.
The San Francisco glistened
in the sun. The cars were fill
ing rapidly. From my post I
could hear the people talking
bidding each other good-bye,
and promising to write and
come again. Among them was
an old gentleman I knew by
sight one of tbe shareholders,
lie was bidding two timid girls
adieu.
'Good-bye, Kittie good-bye,
Lue," I heard him say; "don't
be nervous. The San Francisco
is the safest engine on the
line, and Guelden the most
careful engineer; I would not
be afraid to trust every mortal
in their keeping. Nothing
could happen wrong with the
two together."
I saidj we'll get through
it somehow, and Joe shall nev
er talk to me again, After ail,
it was easy enough." I reeled
as I spoke. Then.I heard the
Bignal. We are off.
Five hours irom L. D.; five
hours back again. I saw a flut
ter, and never had a collision,
somebody told me, and I laugh
ed. I heard the shareholder
say, respectfully:
'Of course, Mr. Gueldon, yon
know wbat you are about.''
Then I was alone and won
dering whether I should go fas
ter or slower. I did something,
and the oars rushed on at a
tearful rate. The same man
who spoke to me before was
standing near me. I heard the
Question;
"ilow many roiled an hour
are we making?"
"1 don't know."
Battle, rattle, rattle! I was
trying to slacken the speed of
theSanfranciaco. 1 could not
remember what I should do
was this or that faster or slow
er! I was playing with tbe en
gine like a child. Suddenly
there was a horrible roar a
crash and I was flung some
where. It was in the water
By a miracle ! was tobered,
not hurt. I gained the 3hore.
stood upon the track and the
water's edge'and ihere gazed at
my work.
The engine was in fragments,
the cars in splinters; dead and
dying and wounded Were
strewn around men nfl wo
men and children, old age and
youth. There:were groans and
shrieks of despair. The maim
ed cried out with pain, the in
jured bewailed their dead, and
the voice unheard by any other,
was in my ear whispering "mur
der."
The news had gone to A., and
the people came thronging
down to find their lost ones.
Searching for an old man's
daughter, I came to a place
near the trees, and found bod
ies lying there in all their rigid
horror an old woman, a young
one, a baby, and two tiny chil
dren. Was it fancy is it pure
lancy, born of my anguish?
They look like oh, heaven,
they are my mother, my wife,
ray children all cold and
deadl
Ilow did they come on the
trainf What chance had hro'i
this about? No one could an
swer. I groaned, I screamed,
1 clasped my hands, I tore my
hair, 1 gazed on the good fac
of her who gave me birth, on
the lovely faces of my inno
cent childron. ' I called them
by name. There was no an
swer. There never could be
here never would be.
A whisiiel Qreatl Onward
up the track thundered anoth
er train! Its red eyes glared
upon me; I threw myself be
fore it: I felt it crush me to
atoms!
"Ilia head is extremely hoi,"
said somebody.
I opened my eyes and saw
my wife.
"Ilow do you leell" said she
"a little better?"
I was so rejoiced and aston
isbed by the sight of my wife
that I could not speak at first.
She repeated the question.
"I must be crushed to pieces,"
said 1, "for the train went over
me, but I feel no pain."
There he goes about the
train again," said my wife.
Why, I tried to move there
was nothing the matter with
me. 1 was in my own roonii
opposite me was a crib, in
which my child was asleep.
My wife and child were safe.
Was I delirious, or what
could it bet
"Joe," I cried, "tell me wbat
has happened."
"It's 9 o'clock," said Joe.
"You came home in such a
state from the club that I
couldn't wake you. You were
not fit to manage steam and
risk people's lives. The San
Francisco is half way to A, I
suppose, and you've been
frightening me half to death
with your dreadiul talk.
And Joe began to cry.
It was only a dream, only an
awful dream.
But I lived through it as
though it w'ere a reality
"Is there a Bible in the
house, Joe?" I asked.
"Are we heathens?" cried
Joe.
She brought it, and I put my
band on it, and took the oath
(too solemn to be repeated
here,) that what had happened
never should occur again. And
it the San Francisco ever
comes to grief, the verdict will
not bei "The engineer was
drunk."

Old Stories.
The old school books give
very exaggerated ideas of
many things. They were mag
nifying glasses lor tbe young.
They described whales as be
ing as long as the tallest
church steeples are high, with
mouths as big as a church
door, and these assertions
seemed to have the sanction of
the Church. Even Cuvier says
that there have been whales
three hundred feet long; but
he never saw one half that
length. Mr. Scoresby, a whale
fisher of Culilornia, has been
revising natural history on the
subject ot whales. lie has as
sisted in capturing 322 of these
monsters, and not one of them
exceeded filty-eight feet in
length. The largest he ever
baw was sixty-seven feet long.
A dead whale, one hundred
and five feel long, was discover
ed floating in Davis Straits;.
and a skeleton of a hundred
and twelve feet long was found
in Columbia river. Sccresby
thinks that book makers ought
to know and record these
facts.
