ENGINEER'S LAST RUN.
His Story of How He Lived His Life
All Over In a Flash.
Louisville Courier Journal.
"Drowning is not the only experi
ence that causes a man to read his
own biography in the flash of a sec
.ond." said F. C. Roberts, a locomotive
"I was running on the passenger
trains between Atlanta and Macon
--everal years ago, and I was to meet
the northbound train at a certain sta
tion on the road. Wel]. it was all my
fault. I hadn't slept any for five
nights. and the only rest I had was
in my cab. The last stop that we
made before this experience of which
I speak, the fireman had to wake me
when the signal to go ahead was re
ceived. I had gone to sleep in my
''As we approached the next station
the conductor may have signalled me
as he claimed he did. but we dashed
through the town at about forty miles
an hour before I heard the down
brakes signal. The minute I heard it
I saw the headlight of the northbound
train less than 300 yeards away com
ing around a curve. . I threw on the
air brakes and reversed, but it all
looked too late. The fireman jumped,
but I was paralyzed. The two great
engines, one bearing a special- train,
rushed together like angry bulls, and
I was frozen there, and while those
trains rushed together, I saw c 'ery
incident of my life just as plainly as
the day it happened. That's all I
know about it.
"They took me to the hospital, and
nine days later I woke up after a
spell of brain fever. The trains stop
ped so close together that the pilots
were sprung out of place, but other
wise there was no damage. They had
to get a new engineer beiore my train
pulled out, though, and that was the
last time I ever pulled a throttle."

When the late ex-Speaker Thoma-s
B. Reed was in California says the
Youth's Companion. he visited the
Lick observator, on Mount Hamil
ton. It was a wonderful November
day, full of gold and the bloom of
flowers. Mr. Reed looked down at
the gorgeous landscape 4,000 feet be
low, and, turning to one of his hosts,
"Colonel, this looks too much like a
special display got up in honor of
the occasion. Tell me what ,a typi
cal winter day in California is really
The Californian thought at once
of a day in February, so warm that
after a morning bath he had lain in
a hammock outdoors, smelled the
roses on fie. trellis and listened to
the thrill of the meadow lark among
the almond blooms.
He began to describe it eloquent
ly: "Thirteen years ago, on Febru
ary zz, I took a bath--"
H e paused to arrange his account of
the roses and the meadow lark. Mr.
Reed broke the pause.
"Well, colonel." he said, in admira
tion, "you do know something about
cleanliness~ out here, don't you?"
