AN ENGINEER'S STORY.
'Let me put my mmm down first I can't
It was a rod rililxin meeting, ami tlic man
was a locomotive engineer, bronzed and
htrong, and having eyes full of deep deter
mination. He Higned hia name in a bold,
plain hand, tied a red riblion in hi.s button
hole, and as he li ft the hall he Raid:
"As the Lord looks down upon me, I'll
never touch lirjuor."
"Have you been a hard drinker?" queried
the inan who walked beside the engineer.
"No. Fact is, I wan never drunk in my
life. I have (wallowed considerable whisky,
but I never went fur enough to get drunk.
I shouldn't miss if, or lie the worse oil" for hii
hour if all the intoxicating drink in the
world was drained into the ocean."'
"Rut you seemed eager to sign the
"So I was and I'll keep it through thick
and thin, tuid talk temperance to every man
on the road.''
"You mut have ,-trong reasons,"
"Well, if you'll walk down to the depot
I'll tell you a story on the way. It hasn't
been in the papers, and only a few of us
know the fai ls. You know I run the niirht
express on the C. Si A. road. We always
have at least two sleepers and n coach, and
sometimes we have as many (is two hundred
passenger. It's i l'ihbI road, level as a floor
ami pret'Y trsiiv.!it, thmgh there win a bad
spot or two. The night express lias the
right of way. and we make fist time. Its no
rare thing torus to skim along at the rate
of fifty miles an hour fir thirty or furty
miles, and we r.iri lv no below thirtv. One
night I pulled out off. with two .sleepers,
two coaches and the lui'iruoe and mail cars.
Nearly all tin- berths in lmth sleepers were
lull, and most of the seats in the coaches
were occupied. It was a dark night, threat
ening all the time to rain, and ii lonesome
wind whistled around the cab as we left the
city behind. We were sewn minutes late
and that meant fast time all the way
"Well," he continued, after a moment,
'everything ran along all right up to mid
night. The main track was kept clear for
us; the engine was in gi aid spirits, and we
ran into. I. as siniMitit its you plouso. The
express coining north should meet u fifteen
miles south of 11., but the operator had
filled to receive his usual remrt from below.
That was strange, and yet it was not, and
after a little consultation the conductor sent
me ahead. We were to keep the main track
while the other was to run in on tin' side
track. Night after night our time had been
so close that we did not keep them waiting
over two minutes, aud were generally in
sight when they switched in."
'When we left II. wo went ahead at a rat
tling speed, fully believing that the other
train would be on time. Nine miles from
R. is the village of M. There is a telegraph
station there, but the operator has no night
work. He closed his olliee and went home
at nine o'clock, and any messages tor him
were held iiImivc or below' until the next
mnrninr. When I sighted this station I saw
a red lantern swinging between the rails.
Oreatly astonished, 1 pulled up the heavy
train and got a bit of news that lifted me
out of my Units. It was the operator who
was swinging the lantern. II.' had been
aroused from sleep by the whistles of a loco
motive, when there wasn't one within ten
miles of him. He heard the tool I tout I toot I
while lie was dressing and till the way as he
ran to the station, thinking he had been sig
naled. Everything was as quiet as the
grave. The man heard his instrument click
ing away, and leaning his ear against the
window, he caught the words as they went
through to R:
"For Uod's sake sw itch the. dow n express
nil' (piick! Engineer on thu north express
crazy drunk, and running u mile a minute!"
"The nKrator signaled Ha at once. Wo
had left li. nine miles away, and the tnrs
senger couldn't have caught us unywheru
except nt M. Six miles further down was
the long switch. It was time wo were thore(
lacking one minute. Wo lost two or three
minutes in understanding the situation und
consulting, and we were jnst getting ready
to switch in where we were when the head
light of the other train came in view. Great
heavens ! how that train was flying. The
bell was ringing, sparks (lying, the whistle
screaming, and not a man of us could raise
a hand. We stood there on the main traek,
spoil bound as it were. There wouldn't
have been time anyhow to have switched m
or get the pass tngere out. It wasn' ver
sixty seconds lioforc tho tra'n was upon us.
I prayed to God ror a breath or two, and
shut my eyes ami waited for death, for I
hadn't tho strength to get out of the cab.
"Well, sir, God's mercy was revealed again'
Forty rods nUvc us that engine jumped the
track and was piled into the ditch into an
awful mass. ' Some of the cars were consid
erably smashed, bnd some of the people
badly bruised, hut no one was killed, and of
course our train escaped entirely. Satan
must have eared for Rig Tom, the other en
gineer. He didn't get a bruise, but was up
and across the Hold's like a deer, screaming
and shrieking like a tiger. It took live men
to bind him after he was run down, and to
day he is the worse lunatic in the State."
'Tom was a good fellow," continued the
engineer, after a pause, '-and he used to take
his glass pretty regularly. I never saw him
Irunk, but liquor kept working on his
nerves till at last the tremens got him when
he had one hundred and fifty lives behind
his engine. He came out allot' a sudden.
Tho fireman was thrown off the engine, nil
steam turned on, and Tom danced and yell
ed and carried on like a fiend. He'd haw
made an awful job of it, sir, but for Coal's
mercy. I'm trembling yet over the' way he
came down for us, and I'll never think of it
without my heart jumping from my throat.

I wanted my name there. One such night
on the road has turned me against iutoxit

the doctors say he'll never get his reason
again. Good night, sir, my train goes in ten

Davis sjM'sks dogmatically on subjects that
he is ignorant on the National banking

press,' and sends them out in the country
to make money; and when they want to quit
banking they give two years notice in some
newspaper for the holders of their issue to
bring them on for redemption ; and when
the two yeajs expires, they go to the comp
troller of the United States treasury, pay
over whnt part of their issue they have col
lect 'd and take' up their bonds. And the
balance of this issue bee lines as counterfeit
money, and is loss in the hands of the peo
