COLUMBIA, TENNESSEE, FRIDAY, JULY 12, 1878.
There la an boor when brooding silence
A net of aadnesa ronnd the heart of man:
When Joy die oat, and naught to him re
Bat desolation' stillness and his thonebts.
And theae thoughts are not ones of trivial
Which, when the noise of the In trader's step
may ronae me moruu irom nis lemargy,
Shall pass away and to the busy mind
Kecnr no more: bat tber are each as do
Leave lasting Impress on the thinker's soul.
The? rnav be thoughts of home.
Whose friendly shelter once the wand"rer
Where peace, and love, and Joy did always
Where gleeful sport and thoughtful learning
Bat which, alas! in an Ill-fated boar.
He left in anger, and the strange world
They may be thoughts of her.
Who, when the hope of bis young heart was
Flllediall his being with her presence bright;
jo waom, in an uie iaun 01 ms pure aoui.
He whlsoered words of love, and hinted e'eu
Orfutarf Joys which they might share as one;
cut wno, wnen expectation tide ran nign,
Was claimed by death.
They may be thoughts of sin
That fell destroyer of the humsn race
Who smothers erery Joy, and cmxhes hope,
And poisons with bis fetid breath the world;
To whom, perbaps, he is a helpless slave.
With mis ry gnawing at bis aching heart.
And from whose cursed hand he might be
Could he but have the faith.
They rosy be thoughts of Mod,
Ureat Ruler of the world, whose mighty
All muHt confess at last; who In his wrath
(Shall banish from bis presence they Ihatsln
In that great Judgment Day, when all the
Before his throne shall stand.
They may be thoughts of faith.
Bright thoughts, which irom the darkened
Mount upward to the heavens, and with one
And mighty sweep stand up before the
Of God himself, and there lay claim to all
The precious promises which he has given,
Aye, claim them all, and with one voice im
plore Their quick bestowal on his needy heart.
Thoughts they may also be
Of that blight meeting on the other shore:
Of all the Joys of home again restored;
Of ti tit sweet lace among the augel throng.
To welcome him Into the heaven-world
W ben all the bonds of nu are cant aside.
And Uod, thejudgtfof all. Is reconciled.
CHASED 7 AN EN3INE.
A conductor's stoky.
I was riding on a night train of the
Pennsylvania Central from New York
to Washington on a mission as .news
paper corresondent. We had passed
JJaltimore, and within an hour's time
would be at our place of destination.
Hie conductor natl limshcd collecting
nty side had dropped into it, as if for a
little rest at the end of a tiresome
day's work. He made an entry in his
iiote-iMjok, closel it, placed it in his
brcast-jiocket, buttoned his coat, fold
ed hits arms, and then turned to me
with a friendly remark, as if now he
felt at liberty to Jay aside all official
dignity and be sociable. I was glad to
while away the time as the train was
rushing along in darkness which
concealed all objects of interest with
out, and so I encouraged the conver
sation. "Von have met with some interest
ing experiences, and, nerhais, with
some great dangers, in the course of
j-our life," said J, the conductor's
grizzly uearu snowing that he might
have seen a long service.
"ell, perhaiw the most exciting
time in my exierienee was the night
1 was chased by an engine a night
which this one reminds me of," said
he, looking out into the darkness.
"Chaseil by an engine!" said I, get
ting interested. "How did that hap-
"Well," Haul the conductor, set
tling down in the cushion and bracing
Uis knees against the back of the seat
in front, "many years ago I was run
ning the night express on Ixmg la-
land from Brookljn to (Jreenport,
a distance of ninety miles, the entire
length ot the road. I lie Long Island
road was tk?en a one-horse attair, hav
ing only a niiigle track, wjth switches
at the diiTerentntationn to allow trains
to meet and pass. On the evening to
which 1 now refer I started from
l$rooklyu with the old Constitution,
long since broken up, bnt then the
crack engine of the road, with a bag
gage or treigiit ear and three passen
ger ears. 'Ihe night was just as dark
as a pocket, or, if anything, perhaps
a little darker," he added, as if he had
accurately tested the internal obscu
rity of that useful portion of the dress.
"It must Lave been very dark,"
"We were the only regular train
Opon the road that night, with the
exception of the Oreenport express to
Brooklyn, which ws to start t 10
o'clock and sueet ub at Lakeland sta
tion, in the middle of the island,
switching oil there to allow us to
"Well, we were perhaps six oreight
miles on our way when 1 stepped out
on the back platform of the rear car to
sej if it was growing any lighter. We
were then going over a part of the
road which was as traight as an ar
row for a distance of four or five miles.
As I was looking back over this stretch
I saw liehind us at the distance of
three miles or so, what I knew was
the head-light of an engine, as it was
too brtght for anything elso; fur of
course I did not suppose the govern
ment had lieen putting up any light
houses along the road."
"Prolably not," said I.
"You may be sure I was a little sur
prised," said the conductor, "for
there wasn't an extra train once a
week upon that road, and I knew
there was none going out from llrook
lyn that night, anyhow. I waited for
a few minutes, until I saw that it was
really an engine coming, and what
was more, was gaining rapidly on us,
although we were troing at our usual
rate of speed. When 1 was satisfied
of thin fact I hurried forward, and said
to the euglUfer, "Jake, therp ? a
train close lehind us,"
"Jake dropped his oil-can and his
lower Jaw at about the same moment,
ami looked to see whether I was crazy
"Well, let the fireman Attend to
matter here, and come bax-k and s,e,
"We hurried to the rear, and in a
moment Jake saw as well as myself
that, if any joke was m this matter,
we were the victims of one; and of
rather a serious one, too, for the train
in the rear had gained on us a full
mile while I had been forward .The
red cinders were pouring out of the
smoke-stack as if from a blast furnace:

repeated whistles of alarm. He was
viol.iiiitg2' railroad rules, and, if he
had determined to secretiy r'dn Ua
down, lie would act just as he was
then doiug, Jake at first seemed to
be struck dumb not so much localise

impudence of 'tiie $;iiff behind.
He looked us if Uo wuuld like to throi

in working order, and he broUe out,

"The eugineer must lie either crazy
or drunk," said I. "If he keej on
that way ten minutes he will surely
le into us;" and I signalled the fire
man to put on more steam. "What

ali to-u.&bt is ha? mizzle me."
"I wonder if it isn't fn nv.'n iy.fi

"By this time the fireman, acting
as engineer, had given our engine all
the steam she could take, and we were
slashing along at a lively rate. I tell
you," said the conductor. "The good

railroad Gilpin was riding another
race according to the new style,
was angry enough to have sent a bul
let at the crazy engineer following us,
ana i determined that my nrst bust
ness the next day wouia be to com
plain to the superintendent of his fooL
hardiness. I thought that possibly.
being for the moment his own master
and not under the immediate orders of
a conductor, he was Indulging in a
kind of a railroad spree, and. for a
lark, was driving us to the top of our
speed, expecting to end the race and
his day's work at the same time at
"Well, we tore through that sleep
ing village without stopping long for
refreshment, I can assure you, and
then Jake and I looked to see our
comical friend in the race pull up at
tne station and ume lodgings for the
night, But we were mistaken in our
guess. Not a whistle was given by
our pursuer as a "iirnal that he inten
ded to stop; not a sign of slacking was
shown; out on the contrary he was
lining upon us when we were doiug
our very best. Sometimes a curve In
the road would shut him a moment
from our view, but he would round it
in an instant, and every new turn
broucht him more closelv upon us.
Jamaica had been left far behind, and
we were out on the wide Hempstead
plain. The old Constitution was on
her muscle. Our train was actually
swaying and rocking with speed like
a yacht on the waves. The telegraph
poles, ujion which the light from our
windows would glint in the dense
darkness, were flying behind us at
every second. The sound of wheels as
they struck the end of the rails was a
continuous hum. But, do the best
that it might, our engine with its
heavy train was no match for the
light-weighted one behind. That was
gaining upon us, and was not the
eighth of a mile oil. The glare from
its lantern shone brightly in our faces;
1 thought Jake's face looked a little
pale, and perhaps mine did, too. Now
that our pursuerdid not halt at Jamai
ca, we were entirely ott our recuons
ings, and we could make no guess as
to the cause of our chase, nor when it
would end. The prospect seemed that
we might be driven to the end of the
road, if we were not overtaken and
mashed Iefore it could be reached.
" 'That's the Franklin, sure,' broke
out Jake once more. 'No other en
gine on the road could overhaul us as
w e are going now. hat can that
fool of a Simpson mean by driving
her ateuch a rate? He must be drunk.
If the Imtss don't break him foMiiorrow
he won't get his deserts. He will be
into us in two minutes.'
''You are right, Jake," said T.
'(Jo forwar I and see if you cannot get
up a little more headway. Kmpty a
few of those petroleum cans on the
wood, and pitch it in, and see what
...in 1 ... i hkti A '
"While Jake went forward on hU
errand I thought over the situation.
Here I was with a hundred or two
ptissengers under my care, all igno
rant of the danger I knew they were
in. If we should be overtaken and
crushed in the rear, the disaster would
be a serious one, and would probably
cause the death or injury at least of
some of the passengers. If we were
not smashed in this way, there was
another and, perhaps, a greater dan
ger liefore us. The train of which I
have spoken, which left (Jreenport
when we left Brooklyn, was on its
way to, meet us on the name track.
It should switch off at .Lakeland, in
the middle of the island, and allow us
to pass an hour after we started, or at
11 o'clock. It was now half-past 10,
and we were close .to Lakeland al
ready, and would pass there long be
fore the arrival of the (ireenport train,
which ordinarily got there first. The
result would be that we should meet
the train beyond Lakeland without
warning of our approach, and collis
ion in front of us as well as the rear
would be the consequence.
"We reached and flew through
Lakeland depot nearly half an hour
ahead of time. Of course, the Green
lort train was not there yet, but was
coming down the road. Our speed
waa now ahead of auy ever uiade up
on the Long Island road. The tele
graph poles fairly danced behind us,
and the bushes on either side of the
track seemed a continuous wall of fire
as they were lighted up by the flame
wljifh was pouring Wit of our moke
stack. But, dangerous as it was to
keep on, it v as Just as dangerous to
slacken speed, and so we went on.
The conductor rolled his Quid from
one cheek to the other, raised the win
dow by his side and expectorated into
the outer darkness, and became silent
for several moments, as if burdenetj
by the reoMUeptini) q hg for-iner uerr
ils. After waiting a reasonable length
ot time for him to resume his story, I
said, "When the collision occurred,
w;is it with the tralu in front or in the
rear, or with both?"
"), the co'lision!" said the conduc
tor. "Well, now you come to the ri
diculous part of the story. The colli
sion did not take place at all," be
said, In an aiiologotiu tone, a if there
ought to have been a serious accident
after so much preparation. "While I
wtis standing on the platform, think
ing whether I kad better warn the
passengers to hold themselves ndy
for a shock, Jack came forward drag
ging after hini two lare petrqleuin
M4 Hli-b fcf "rrhiuU to-blUd bull a
quarter of a barrel of oil.
"Now, then," said Jake to me, "If
you will oil one side of the track I
will the other.'
"I saw at once what his plan was.
We each hrouirht the mouth of an oil
nan as near tuthe jiolihcd surface of
the rail as possible and commenced
pouring on terosine. In lea than a
minute a half-mile of the Iron rails on
Uth sides was nicely oiled, and as
slippery as the tongue of a Hebrew
dealer in second-hand clothes."
"You have raised my expectations
of a catastrophe so high that you have
Irt-en obliged to grease the track so as
to let them tlown again easily," said I,
for I felt a little nettled at the unex
ijfcuted ju u ihe snrj hui tkeu, M'l

duetor was drawing largely oq hU inj
ugiuation fur the fcujts,
"Why, don't you kuow that an en
gine cau no more make headway on
ii greased track than a tomcat can
climb ateep roof covered with ice?"
said the conductor, with a pitying
glance at one eo profoundly Ignorant
of railroad matters -as myself. "I
slapped Jake on the back and said,
.i4ld fellow, vuurf'UteiibS hag lii-ollsdU
"In a Ivw seuunds tlie lantern qf the
train behind us was getting dim in
the distance, We sjapketl speed and
backed down to see 'what the matter
was with tsjmpson,' as Jake said.
There stood the old lien Franklin puf
fing and snorting and pawing like a
mad bull, and the driving wheels buz
zing around on the greased track like
al pjissespi but not gaining an inch.
We sandeti ihe f rff nf.( df,n
upon the obj machine. Jakp-A'as (lie
lirt aboard, apoihng fora yjoil chance

sign of an engineer, firemaOj or any
other living being, was to be found.
The engine had otdy tender attach
ed, and although there was a full
head of steam on, the tires were get
ting low. We made short work in
pushing back to Lakeland. We reach
ed the station, and got fairly upon the
switch when the Greenort train
which we should meet there, came in,
and were waiting as if nothing had
happened, and as if we had not been
fifteen miles out on the road to meet
it a few minutes liefore.
."The telegraph operator at lake
land handed me a dispatch which
read as follows:
"To Conductor O : The Ben
Franklin has broken loose and is com
ing up the road. Turn switch at Lake-
laud and run her off the track.
"lirookfyn, 10:0o p. m.
"louseewe did not have much
time for turning switches at Lake
land, "he continued, "so we did still
better, and saved the old Ben which
was not responsible, after all from
Tis Story of a Womu's Birenga.
"I'll tell you of an incident I never
reflect on without regrel," said a re
tired old detective the other day,
while reciting some or the stirring oc
currences of the early days or ban
"The life of a detective is not one of
excitement merely. It is sometimes
crossed with events as wild and start
linjr as ever gave coloring to romance.
No emotion, no passion or phase of
character is hid from us. We learn
to play upon the feelings, the hates
and affections of men and women as
unerringly as the pianist on his instru
ment. While the causist would hesi
tate to take advantage of this, the
necessities we are under compel u.s to
omit no opKrtuuity which may lead
us to success.
"I say this because the incident I
am about to relate reveals what a
woman will do when excited by jeal
ousy and thirsting for revenge.
"We were on the track or a man
who had robbed a Havana jeweler of
almost incalculable wealtn. lie had
lied his native island, and we were in
formed by the Culian authorities that
in all probability he had made his
way to this coast. At that time this
city was full of Cubans aud adventur
ers" from all parts of the world. One
couple, peculiar from all the rest, ex
cited the attention of the then limited
fashionable world, and liecame the
pets of society. Their lavish expendi
ture and almost Jastern magnineenoe
of apparel and euuinage excited the
admiration ami envy, it maj be, of

only little undersbxxl. The inystery

Convulsive twitching, livid features,
gurgling in the throat, and similar
ghastly symptoms which mark
the last moment, are only exhibitions
