SAVED II V A BICYCLIST.
How a Yonnjj Telofrrnph Operator
Prevented a Terrible Kail
'You think mo rather young for such
a responsible position? Well, perhaps
so, fur I am nothing more than a boy,
being less than 20 years of ago. But
what think you of this whito hair which
I have had for four years? It looks
strange to one unaware of its origin,
and when I call to mind tho circum
stances that caused it I only wonder
that I am alive to-day."
The speaker, a mere child in appear
ance savo for bis whito hair, stood with
his right indox finger and thumb grasp
ing tho key of a tolegraph instrument
which had just ticked off to him an ac
count of a terrible railroad accident.
Referring to it ho said:
"I have had sonio trying experiences
in my lifo as an operator. Four years
ago I was telegraph operator at a small
country station on a southwestern rail
road. I had littlo to do, the dispatches
sent and received not avoraging more
than two a day, and thoso confined al
most to railroad matters. To enable
mo to leave tho offico at will I had at
tached a largo tin cup to tho sounder
of my instrument so 1 could hoar my
call 'Q,' from any part -of tho village.
When tho south-bound train arrived at
noon one Saturday I hurriedly commu
nicated with tho conductor, and learn
ing that ho had nothing to send I pre
pared to quit my oflico for tho after
noon, as no other train was duo until
7 o'clock. Locking tho door I went
away, leaving tho train standing at tho
depot, hot boxes detaining it longer
than usual. Luckily 1 did not go oe
Tond ear-shot of mv instrument renair-
ing to a field near by to witness a base
ballgamo. I frequently left tho oflico for
hours, but always kept within hearing
distance, tho tin-cup sounder enabling
mo to distinguish my call several hun
dred feet away. Somehow I had mis
givings on this occasion. I had an in
dflfinnViln rlmml nf Knmn inninmlinrr
trouble. I was so ill at easo that I took
littlo interest in tho game. I kept my
ears open, expecting, tor somo reason
I will not attempt to explain, to bo
called to tho cilice. Before I had been
absent ton minutes, and wliilo tho train
still stood at tho depot, I heard my fa
miliar call repeated in what seemed to
mo unusually rapid succession. In
stead of walking leisurely to tho oflico,
as was my wont, I ran to tho oflico as
last as 1 could, and honnl as I entered
Hold No. 4 at your station until
special going north passes.'
"Involuntarily I glanced out of the
window, and saw tho train I was or
dercd to hold disappearing around a
curve a short distance away. I was
not told at what timo tho special left
tho station south, which was only ton
miles away, and I saw iu my mind's
eTP th two truino rnpidly approaching
each other, quickly followed by a crash,
screams of pain, and Hying debris.
Suddenly I remembered, whilo tearing
my hair and cursing my negligence, that
No. 4 had to stop at a wood yard two
miles down the road to tako on fuel.
That would bo a matter of iivo minutes
and if means of conveyance wcro at
hand I might ovcrtako it and avert a
disaster. My first thought was a hand
car, my second a horse, but I did not
know if tho first was at tho station or
tho second was to be had in tho village.
Rushing out of tho oflico I stumbled
over my bicycle. Without a moment's
thought I shoved it out of the door be
foro mo and was on it in less timo than
it takes to count ten. In my odd mo
ments I had practiced and had becomo
quite an export bicyclist. Tho country
road paralleled tho railroad for several
miles and tho former was down grado
the entire distance. I put my wholo
strength into the effort of propelling
the machine, and had tho satisfaction
of attaining a speed I had never accom
plished before. My hat blew off and
my coat was dolled through fear that
it might retard my speed. I got with
in perhaps fifty yards of tho now sta
tionary train when tho engino whistle
blew and tho train started up. I re
doubled my efforts and came alongsido
tho last car just as tho train was get
ting under full headway. With a fall
ing side motion I threw my wheel
against tho side of tho car just forward
of tho platform, and grasped the hand
rail as it camo in reach, at tho sanio
time letting go my hold on tho bicycle.
1 caught tho bell-cord and gave it ouo
.gorous pull, and tho train came to a
halt, I gave the cord thrco jerks, tho
signal to back, and fainted. The con
ductor found mo whero I had fallen.
Suspecting something wrong, ho per
mitted the train to back to tho station,
getting there just as the special, loaded
with the directors of tho road and their
families, swung around tho curvo into
the station. I had brain fever, and
came near dying, not gaining my reas
oning faculties for fivo weeks after my
terrible experience. But tho conduc
tor i&id my hair was whito when ho
lound me on the rear of his train."
A. dejected and forlorn boy of about
10 years old confided in tho cook tho
other day Uo told her if hi9 mother
Mked for him to say that ho did not
care for any dinner. As ho expected
his mother came to look for him just
before the dinner hour, and was sur
prised to find that, although thero was
company and somo extra dishes of
Which the boy was fond, ho did not
wish for any dinner. When closely
pressed as to the reason, he said in an
embarrassed way, "Becauso I haven't
any manners." - The poor, self con
scions boy was certainly "under con
viction" of his sins, and his mother
was impiesscd with the thought that
too much fault had boon found with
him at the table.
THE LUKAY CAVE.
"Crewi" Describes tho Wonderful
Beauty of this Cave.
In a recent letter to the Inlcr-Ocam
"Cress" says: Above us was an arched
roof, from which hung thousands of
long delicato stalactites, tapcrinsr and
pointod as Cleopatra's ueedlo and
glistening with moisture: alons tho
sides of the hall wore stono rldres and
banks of singular form, and almost in
tho center loomed tin "Wasliinston's

in diametor, aud heavily fluted. Won
derful as it soomed beforo wo had made

into insignificanco by tho timo wo mado
It would be impossiblo to relate all
that is to bo seen in this three-milo
walk amid wonders, in a letter: so I
shall confine myself to a fow of tho
most striking and interesting objects
of this wilderness of the lower world,
which mimics all that is marvolous,
sublime, majestic, and what wo call

bristles a wall of sparkling stalactites,
and down into tho darkest portion of
tho black gulf ono can discern tho

with snowy drapcrios. I his ghostly

CHEAT CALAMITIES. I
The Iti'cord for the First Four Months
of 1883 and 1884.
Last year was remarkable for tho
number, frequency, and appalling ro
sulls of its groat calamities. Thoso be
gin with tho beginning of the twelve
month, and January, 1883, is memora
ble on account of the rapidity with
which disasters attended by terrible
loss of lifo and other horrifyin" fea
tures succeeded each other. Tuo ro
cord for tho wholo year, iueludino- only
such casualties as involved a loss of
twenty human lives and upwards, pre
sented a total of 108.G05 a great many
of victims to nature's maleiio power,
for they perished in every concoivablo
way by shipwrecks, flood and cyclono,
in tho torment of flames, tho agony of
railroad disasters, tho uuknown ter
rors of miuo disastors, and by the
swifter and by comparison morciful
powder explosions. It must bo borno
in mind, however, that tho total was
swollen to its exceptional dimensions
by two uncommon catastrophes. Tho
earthquakes in Casamicciola carried off
5,000 victims; while tho Java volcanic
eruptions swept 100,000 human beings
from tho earth.
What the present year has in ston
for us can bo a matter of nnlw fmitu,,.
Conjecture, but a COtniinrisnn
fatalities of 184 for tho four months
euuing with April will probably sur
prise a great many persons by showing
that tho number of lives lost by disas"
ter this year thus far exceeds thn ttoi
for tho sanio period in 1883, which was
legurueu as especially destructive to
humanity. Un to Miu 1. istw n,
cord of disasters, including only such
as caused a loss of twenty livos or moro
was as follows:

There were hundreds of other fatali
ties, in which the loss of lifo ranged
downwards from twenty, but it would
bo impracticable to keep a list of them.
Tho Tinvs has, however, kept a chro
nological vecorutnac includes all fatali
ties whero the loss of lifo was ten aud
upward. Adding tho number of deaths
caused by these and not included in tho
greater casualties abovo cited, 152, tho
total of recorded fatalities for tho four
niotillis, or one-third of 1883, was 1,990.
This would no doubt bo larger by 10 or
15 per cent., as would also bo tho ex
hibit of 1881, were it possible to keep
track of all tho minor accidents by
which individual lives wcro lost
Turning to tho record of 1884, wo
have jotted down in the following tablo
of casualties showing the loss of life for
January, February, March and April,
all accidents and disasters involving a
loss of ten lives or upwards:

Hero, then, it is shown that tho pres
ent year has witnessed a considerably
larger sacrifico of human lifo through
calamities of various sorts than did
1883, which stands as an annas ItonibHis
in tho history of calamities. It is not
likely, in tho naturo of things, that wo
shall havo a repetition of last year's
earthquake and volcanic experience to
add abnormal proportions to tho list of
deaths by disaster, but from present
appearances 1884, aside from tlieso un
usual features, is likely to bo quite as
torriblo as last year, if not moro so.
