Ono crime rcinnincd for No. 02
mixed freight, west bound. Short
handed and overloaded (five In the
crew nnd clglity-thrce cars), she had
"broken" twice, stopped for hot box
four times, nnd had been forced to
double over every hill from Crews to
Therefore, at Benton she had "laid
out" No. 17, east-bound passenger j nt
Jefferson she had held up No. .'15, the
fust freight of refrigerated perishables
rushing to Chicago; at Evans she had
delayed passenger No. 35 for half tin
hour; at Brunswick she had held buck
passenger No. 21; and last, at Lavern
she had laid out, for almost an hour,
the crack Transcontinental Express No.
0, cast hound.
In ten minutes No. 32 would com
plete the calendar by laying out No. 10
also, the twin Transcontinental rush
ing up from behind. The siding at
Stockton (which the freight had been
allowed fifty minutes to reach from
Lavern, ton miles back) was still eight
miles ahead, und forty of the fifty min
utes were gone.
Tho crew, out thirty-eight hours,
were exhausted, exusperated, humili
ated. They had frelghtod too long
to mind the mere thirty-eight hours'
exlmustlon and exasperutlon, but this
time the humiliation was overdone.
Their superiors had humiliated them
personally and pointedly at the larger
towns and by wjjre at the stops between.
Their equals, on the other trains hud
humbled them as they slunk Into the
sidings; but what was entirely Intol
erable, their Inferiors nnd woru., the
very hobos stealing rides on the train,
had mocked them and rubbed It In.
Thirty hobos had boarded the train
at the hill beyond Lavern, overborne
the weak crew, broken Into ti car of
foodstuffs, and, after eating wMat they
wanted, had scattered the rest along
the right of way till It laid ceased to
The crew had found It best to sulk
very silently In the caboose at the end
of the train till the volley of stones
smashing through thu windows told that
tho tramps had departed. Then, as
one mini, the crew of No. 32 sprang for
ward for revenge.
The object was still asleep In. the
"empty" at the middle of the train.
The crew hud come upon him some
hours before ; but that was before they
had learned the personal advantages
of enforcing the j-ule to eject tramps,
and before they had laid out the last
two passenger trains and the Trans
contlnent.M, and received the tele
graphic comments thereon.
Hnrrlng kicked the object to con
sciousness while Kalvert and Bender,
one on each side, picked him up. One
of , the others opened wider the big door
of j thu box cnr.
"One," Burring remarked, with nn
other kick, as Kalvert and Itender
swung the holm between them.
"Two," Hnrrlng kicked again. No.
32, In a last spurt to reach the siding
before No. 10 could overtake It, put on
speed and jumped ahead, but the men
In the car did not heed It.
"Three!" The hobo, n$ the touch of
Barring's foot, swung free from tho
hands on either side and dove out
through the door In a low parabola. A
howl ! and for an Instant a gray gap
appeared In the Hying hedge beside the
"He's hit the road," muttered Bar
ring. "What do you want to hurt a
inn a for?" He blamed It upon the
others. "Why couldn't you let him go
Into the bush?"
Kalvert spat upon the floor, but
tinned his fnce nway from the lantern.
"We're hitting It up," he observed
carelessly. "Tho damned hobo."
Bender grunted gruffly.
The hobo drew himself up on his
hands. lie felt stunned and deadened
all over, and was conscious more of a
battered dullness than of pain. He had
a numbed understanding that he must
have been quite senseless nfter he
struck not for very long, but for u
few moments anyway.
Yet ns . ho dragged himself around
and sat up, he saw that he could scarce
ly have lost consciousness. They had
thrown him off hnlf-way around a
curve, nnd the red light of the caboose
was still visible nt the farther horn of
He gazed at It stupidly and rubbed
his eyes with his swollen knuckles, but
still the red light persisted there, and
It came to him slowly that the' train
must havo stopped.
The wagon road the tramp had been
thrown upon might lead to n town, but
he couldn't tell how far off It might
be, or In which direction. The train
was there, nnd now that he was hurt
the hobo thought he might get the crew
to let him ride to the next station; If
not, he might hide himself somehow.
He wns wondering only whether he
could catch them In time to ask them
to let him on again; and If they
wouldn't, he was planning whero he
might hide from them.
Then he saw thnt something was
the matter with the train. The curs
wure not straight on the track, but
were lying across It In every direction.
The roofs had slid down and the sides
bulged out. Big boards nnd barrels
and boxes were thrown about, nnd as
fur as tho tramp could see through the
darkness, the wnvy line of cars ilg
ingged crozlly over both sides of the
trnclc. Some rero rolled over on their
But nowhere In tho long line ws
there a sound or sign of life, although
the little flaring wick In the 'red lump
at the rear of the train tilt burned.
The tramp pulled the lamp from It
fastening and walked along the wreck
age, until, from under a pile of boards
at his feet, ho heard a groan.
The hobo kicked the boards and the
groan sounded again. He lenncd over,
mid, with a queer, silly feeling at his
weakness, tugged Ineffectually at the
planking. His fingers kept letting go
their hold nnd he sat back helplessly,
but he knew the man underneath wns
cousclous now, for the muttcrlngs were
audible, though still incoherent.
"Number ten . , . ten , . .
ten . . . ten . . . damn . . .
ten . . . ten . . . ten" the
man underneath wns saying as the
hobo tugged over him.
The tramp tore n board free and
the man below shuddered and twisted
his head In the ragged hole. 1
"Number ten, damn you," he gasped
In pain from the weight of which his
lungs were relieved.
"Stop ten . . . ten . . . you
damned hobo," he gasped as tho pain
gripped him again, "stop ten the ex
press train behind us," he explained
madly, "stop it . . . stop It . . .
lantern there . . . run . . . run
. . . runt"
The hobo understood at Inst, nnd
Hnrrlng sank back agnln unconscious.
The tramp was running mechanical
ly, automatically, ut the trainman's
bidding. From fur away the whistle
of No. 10 came to him, half startled him
front his ntitomatlsm, and he raced on
more consciously. Ills legs wobbled
qucerly ns ho forced them nnd he
stumbled between the tics, sometimes
staggering two or three steps back
ward to save his balance before he
could lunge madly forward again.
The second screech from N"o. 10
echoed past him, nnd, ns he looked
fearfully ahead and did not seu tho
engine, he suddenly recalled that he
was on the curve nnd spurred on more
desperately, throwing himself forward
now us he stumbled and pressing him
self up again with his free hand when
he fell. It was quite two hundred
yards to the beginning of the straight
stretch which he must reuch to signal
Again No. 10 whistled, but now the
sound, Instead of coining around the
crescent ahead, seemed to the tramp
to come through the woods nt his side,
und, us he glanced nslde, It seemed to
come directly through thu opening
where n path ran through the trees.
Spontaneously fnclng about to the di
rection of the shriek, the tramp raced
Into the cut-on".
The pound of the train now came to
him clearly as he ran; but the smooth
dirt of the path spread before him.
Yet he lurched over It with high, strain
ed strides, und, still feeling for tho
treacherous ties when they were no
longer there to trip him, he slipped at
first: lint his stride soon ndnpted It
self and he reeled on to beat the train.
To beat the train! The exhaust of
the Transcontinental'.? great engine al
ready hissed through the trees about
hint, yet he had to beat the train. He
had to bent It, but ho could hear it
coming so fast that his little steps
seemed nothing. He could feel the
pain of his muscles nnd the bent of his
feet upon the path, hut compnrcd with
the tremendous rush of the train, he
seemed held by a weight.
In the opening abend he saw tho
track where it crossed his little path,
and he had to beat the train to thnt
track! Madly, thinking only to win
the nice, nnd to lighten himself, he
hurled the slgnnl lantern from him
and .seemed to gnln n little.
The track showed plainly before him,
almost at his feet, so plnlnly that he
knew tho headlight of the engine wns
almost over the spot where the path
crossed It. To bent the train there to.
beat the train. He didn't know where
his strength come from or that It came
nt all till it stiffened his legs and
steadied hhn. He wns ten feet from
the track, but the train wns nlmost as
near the crossing.
To beat It now to win nt the finish l
Tho white glnre of the headlight smote
his eyes but he shut them and threw
himself forwnrd blindly, with his arms
It wns the end of the race, nnd
wildly, madly now, the engine the big,
pounding engine beaten by the little"
mail roared to try to frighten- him
away and win nfter nil; but the little
man wouldn't be frightened or cheated.
With the blind, reckless burst of his
triumph, he gathered himself, hurtled
forward und beat the train to the
"The crnzy, damned hobo," the en
gineer of No. 10 sputtered to the group
which gnthered about the pilot. "Sui
cide; suicide, that's whnt It Is. Jumped
right out of tho bushes thcro nnd
threw himself under the wheels. Ilenrd
mo whistle, didn't you? But he vns
bound to kill himself.
"Thonght ho might be crazy and I
gnve her snud nnd reversed her; but
ho wns under tho wheels ns soon as
I saw him. Suicide; suicide , . .
dove right under the wheels . . .
and I'll get rnked for kllllug himl
Killing hlra? Lordl"
A man Bender blood-spattered
and winded, burst through the group
und clunc. nnntlnir. to the inftnrr
"Thank God y topped. Thlrtytwo's
all over the track 'round the curve and
. . . what stopped ye! Itnn over
man? . . . Lordl It's the crazy
hobo wo swung off 'bout here. . . .
Lucky f'r you he got on the right o'
way . . . and f r us, too tho poor,
crnzy hobo "
But the engineer of NolO was kneel
ing 'and lingering gently the rough
cloth of the sleeve of the man lying
under the pilot.
"Poor, crazy hobo," he murmured
