A 8TARTLING TALE.
TUB night express Of the O. It. ic. D.
railrond rolled Blowly out of the bare
and bnioklng Dnlton depot, os I entered
the last ear of the train, and Bented my
self tienf the three solitary occupants of
the caH-two Indies nnd a little' triad,
with an imitation, seal-skin cap and a
wheezy cough, who was curled Up on a
seat reading a paper. '
I had fttllen Into an uneasy dose, when
the brakemari thrust his bend into the
car and called out, " Rome," and a mo
ment Inter a tall, slim, light haired par
ty with big bottomed pants glided into
the car and seated himself in the seat
next to the little man, who folded up his
paper, and, after quietly staring at the
new-comer for some time, remarked, as
we moved away from the station:." That
was a bad accident down on the branch,
"Yes,?' replied the slim Individual,
glancing at the ladies. "Yes, badaeci
dent,bnd accident j and they say that this
road isn't in the best of order."
" No V " inquiringly returned the other,
watching the ladies squirm about in
their seuts. " This is a bnd night for an
One of the Indies felt for her smelling
bottle, and the party in light hair re
marked : " They don't have any first
clnss accidents now-a-dnys; don't kill
off more than one or two or three nt a
time. Now some of the rail wny smashes
I've seen would put a slaughter house
to sluune. " No sir," he went on, "they
don't do things here as they are done In
the West. I'm from the West myself.
I remember a little affair that hnppened
ou the W. &T). road, in the spring of
'o5. I was called to a town on that
road on some business for our firm."
The two ladies bent forwnrd, and he
continued : " The old express was half
an hour behind time, and the way she
jumped over the rails M ould have hin
dered the cheek of a 'commercial travel
er.'" The little man drew nearer, and
fastened his restless'eyes upon the talka
tive strnnger, who continued: "Well,
as I said, we were all an hour late, and
about a mile from where I was to stop
off was a high bridge over a rough
stream, called the Devil's Race.' '
The elder lady ' sniffed nt her harts
horn. " The bridge was reached by a
sharp turn in the road, and was usually
approached at a slow rate of speed, but,
being late, we were running about twen
ty miles an hour ; the train approached
the bridge; the rush of waters, heard
above the roar and rumble of the train ;
the hoarse shriek bf the locomotive, the
intense darkness of the night; all cou-
spired to make the scene a memorable
one.' I opened my window, and looked
out. The increased loudness , of the
noise appalled me; suddenly an intense
ly bright light appeared at the other end
of the bridge. ' Great Heavens I I ex
claimed. ' The down express is crossing
the bridge I' It was too late to stop the
The stranger rose to his feet, the rec
ollection was painful.' the ladies leaned
forward in eager excitement. Looking
very hnrd at the group of listeners, he
waved his had majestically and resum
ed : " Yes, my friends, it was too late
to stop the trains. Noting my exclama
tion of horror, the passengers in my vi
cinity pushed up their windows and
gazed out; In less time than I can tell
you, the terrible fact -.was known, our
awful danger was appreciated, and all
in the car rose to their feet in terror."
The little man gave another wheezy
cough, I shifted myself uneasily In my
seat, and In husky tones inquired ; "But
the crash the crash V" ' . ; . .
"Yes," echoed -the vounger ' lady.
v " Crash ? crash V" he returned, " there
was no crash, my friends, the bridge was
laid with a double track !"
Sorrowfully and wearily he wandered
toward the door, the brakeman called
out " Patona," and as we traced the re
treating form of the stranger as he rolled
up the hill to the hotel, we sank back in
our seats and realized that we had been

soldier, leaped over the fortifications,

was '. refused. ; He . then asked for the
Confederate soldier's name and the two
men parted. Moore subsequently lost a

returned home a cripple. The Raleigh

LOVE IN A SLEEPING CAR.
AN annoying incident happened to a
bridal couple on the Chicago and
Alton train ft day or two ago. The St.
Louis Globe Democrat tells the story as
follows: A young gentleman living in
in Wisconsin had successfully I wooed a
young lady of Northern Indiana. They
met at Chicago, where the knot was tied
and started immediately for St. Louis,
where both have friends. On the Pull
man the young people were extremely
affectionate to each other billing and
cooing before folks, and apparently un
conscious of the titters and significant
smiles of their fellow-passengers. Short
ly after nightfall the bridegroom hunted
up the conductor and engaged a lower
berth for the night. To his Intense mor
tification the bride refused to occupy it,
but insisted in sitting up until the train
should arrive in St. Louis, where she
would have the advice and assistance of
friends. The bridegroom coaxed and
pleaded, and used all those passionate
endearments that come natural to lovers
nnd young husbands, but the modesty
of the brido would not permit her to
yield. The young man thought his
brido was unreasonable, accused her of
coldness, told her she didn't love him,
and all that sort of nonsense, and as he
appeared angry, the' bride burst into
tears and wept bitterly.
Some of the observant passengers
thought it wns time to Interfere, and one
of them took the conductor aside and
told him there wns a naughty young
man in the sleeper who was trying to
ruin an innocent and confiding girl.
The conductor's indignation was arous
ed. He could not allow such a proceed
ing in his car, no matter how respecta
ble the chap might be. He sent a tele
gram to Decntur, requesting a policeman
to come abonrd on the arrival of the
the train and arrest a villain who
would be pointed out. In the meantime
he would keep his eye on the vile seduc
er and see that the . Indy wns protected.
The bridegroom, ignorant of the prepa
rations set on foot for his arrest, contin
ued his importunities, and the sobbing
bride still resisted, when the chivalrlo
conductor, unable longer to contain his
indignation, placed his hand on the
young man's shoulder and told him if
he didn't let that lady alone he would
throw him out of the window.
" Why, you booby, that lady Is my
wife; we, were married this morning In
" That's too thin, young man : those
Chicago marriages are getting to.be too
common on this road.','
" But here-is the marriage certificate,
you goose. How is that for high? And
if that won't do, ask the lady herself."
The conductor examined the marriage
certificate, but was not satisfied, as it
might be a forgery. The lady was ap
pealed to,but was too hysterical to reply.
The conductor concluded to bring the
couple to St. Louis aud hand them over
to the police, to deal with them as might
be thought proper. , On reaching the
Union Depot the young couple were met
by friends who were known to the con
ductor, and finding that things were
"O: K.," lie did not trouble the police
with the case. When the facts were
made known to the friends of the par
ties, there was a hearty laugh at their
expense, and it will be many a day be
fore they will hear the last of it. -
Only One Load. 1
IT IS pretty well known that during
William II. Vnnderbilt's youth, .his
father, the Commodore, had very little
confidence in his sagacity or business
ability. Against the advice of some of
his friends, he persistently declined the
young man's co operation becnuse lie
thought him stupid." A story is cur
rent on Staten Islhnd ' which goes to
show how the Commodore's eyes came
to be opened to the mistake Into which
he had allowed himself to fall concern
ing his oldest boy. William owned a
farm near bis father's and finding that
it required fertilization, he applied to
him for some manure,'
" How much do you want V" Inquired
the Commodore. n - , . ;, .
" Oh, about a load," said the son.
" Certainly, I can spare that,!' was the
reply. . . i .
When the Commodore visited his
place the next week, he found that his
yards aud stables were swept clean of
the great heaps of compost which he
had allowed to accumulate, .
" AVhy, how is this V" he said to his
farmer. 1 .
." Your son came and got It," was the
answer. " He eaid you gave him pert
mission." . ., J; . - , ,
The Commodore went fuming to Wll.
Ham, and said in a bustling way, " gee
here, young man, what have you been
about ; how dared you to cart off all my
manure"' . .
V You said I could have It," was the
rejoinder. " you told me to take a load."
" A load why, you have got ?very bit
there is." , ,
" I only took a' load, fnther a sloop
The old man's eyes were opened, and
he concluded to give the son a "slice" of
stock to operate with, and soon after
made him Vice President of1 the Central
road. : ' " ' ' .'
' THE OLD SUBSCRIBER. ;
HE CAME wearily up the sanctum
steps yesterday afternoon, and turn
ing the waste basket upside down sat
down upon it with a sigh that might
have been cut up into tornadoes and
whirlwinds enough to go around half
a dozen agricultural counties, He had
a weary look about him as though he
had been trying to die antVcouldn't find
a dncton His coat , was ragged and
patched here and there with prosperous
and clanlsh communities of cockle burs.
His boots, water proof variety, so ar
ranged that if you stuck them in the
river the water would run out faster
than It would run in. We asked him
how he fared, and he glanced savagely
at a Kansas pnper among our exchanges
before he answered sadly :
" Well, pretty miserable, thank ye.
Ye see, times comes In pretty hard, and
It was pretty hard sleddiu' to get along.
Ieitherjesthadtosellthe six dogs, or
cut down the expenses in some other way
and so I stopped the paper. I missed it
powerful bad the first few weeks, then I
kind o' got used to It. Borrowed It once
an' a while here and there, but folks dld
not somehow appear to lend their Times
and so I finally lost sight of italtogether.
Then trouble begun, right off. The first
thing I knew I wa9 arrested and lined
$20 for violating the game law. See, the
thing has been changed a little, and I
didn't know nothing about it, but the
judge said as how Ignorance wasn't no
excuse in these days when the State was
so full of papers that you couldn't Are a
stone out of the winder without hitting
an editor.1 Then in a week I was arrest
ed and fined $20 for violating the fishery
law, nnd when I begged off an' said I
didn't know nothiu' about it the judge
asked me where I was raised an' remit
ted $2 of the fine for me to take a paper
with. But I kinder thought I couldn't
get in any more scrapes, and I sort o'
hung on to the two dollars. In about
three days after I wa9 took up again and
fined $4 and costs for hunting on Sun
day ; and I hope I may die if I kuowed
it was Sunday. An' I had to sell the gun
to get out of the jug. Then a fellow
came along and bought every grain of
corn I bad In the crib for six cents less
than I found next day it was worth in
the market; then I lost two of the best
cows you ever saw and they was took
up p.nd advertised, nnd all the time, I
wns hunting the whole country over for
'em, nn' when I found 'em at last the
cost was more thnn the cows was worth..
The taxes came due and I didn't know
it, an' the farm was sold an' I had a big
lot of costs to pay 'afore I knowed a thing
about it. Then I lost $10 on a bet that
Pendleton had a dead sure thing oa the
Democratic nomination, an' 'nutherfive
dollars on a bet that Belknap was Secre
tary of War, an' I don't know anything
about Babcock, nor Blaine, noranybody
and every week since I've stopped the
paper I've paid out more money to keep
out of trouble thnn would keep me In
newspapers all my dnys. Put my name
on tbeilist." . '..) . . ..
A Wonder In Burglary.
Mr. Augustus Floyd, says the Jv". Y.
Sun, of the 21st ult., spent yesterday
morning in a fruitless attempt to find
some clue to the burglars who broke into
his house in Englewood on Saturday
I night, and after binding and gagging the
servants, took away about $4,000 worth'
of silver plate. When Mr. Floyd went
to his ofllce at 130 Water street, about
, noon, he whs told that a gentleman was
in his back office waiting to see him.
' " I have come, ,Mr. Floyd," said the
stranger, after he had satisfied himself
that the doors were closed and that no
one could bear the conversation, "to
talk with you about the burglary in your
house, and to give you some Information
about it." , ... '
' The man's manner was that of great
excitement, and Mr. Floyd at first was
unable to mnke out the purpose of the
visit and proposition, but he told him
thnt ho was ready for any information.
" I can take you to the place where
your property is, and there it shall all be
restored to you."
Mr. Floyd was still more amazed, and
asked the man what proof he had that
he was not using this proposition to en
tice him for purposes of his own to somo
place where he would be unable to pro
. " You have only my word that I will
do precisely as I say. I will do this. If
you do not wish to go with me to the
plnce where your property is, I will send
it to you. All that I ask is that you will
give no description of me to any one,
that you will not say anything about
this Interview that will lead to my iden
tification." " ' ,
' At this point the man seemed almost
overcome by emotion, which Mr. Floyd
eays had every appearance of being gen
uine. At lust he said: "A friend of
mine was drawn into this thing, for the
first time. It Is for his sake that I am
doing this, i When I learned or t I told '
them' that I should give thenl awa un
less the property was all returned, and
they agreed to It," , . , r
J! What reward do you. expect ..for. r?v
turning this property?" Mr. Floyd
asked. ''" " '
" I want no reward. All I ask is that
you simply pay me back a few small e
penses that I httve Incurred."
, Mr. Floyd Was satisfied that the man
intended to restore the property, what
ever his; motive for doing It might tie,
and he at Inst said to him that he would
go with him to the place where the prop
erty was. They sauntered slowly up
Broadway, the strange man not appear
ing to be at all nervous. On the wayhe
told Mr. Floyd how the burglary was
committed. He said that the burglars
rowed across the North river, and, after
breaking into the house and binding the
servants, they took the plate and drove
away wltli Mr. Floyd's horse and pine
ton. He maintained that he was not
one of the burglnrs, nnd did not know;
oi me men until esununy night. Then
he took steps to have the property re
stored, and finally got it into his posses
sion on Tuesday afternoon.
Mr. Floyd found'hls property in the
place where the man said It had been
stored. The plate was spread out In a
room. Every article thnt had been'ta
ken, with a few trifling things which
Mi TTtnvrl 1, Intra mav liana lnn,i Imt
was there. The two men were In that
place nearly two hours, nnd the stranger
chntted coolly with Mr. Floyd upon, va
rious subjects. He hnd a special con
tempt for the New York police, and
pointed out a detective passing the door
who he thought was looking for the
Mr. Floyd then arranged to have (he
plate removed, and as he parted with
the man, said something abouta reward,
but he again refused to take a cent. He
made an appointment for another Inter
view with Mr. Floyd at his ofllce.
In the Streets at Night. .
IS father don't allow him to be
in the streets at night," said Will
Carson in a mocking tone ; " better tie
the baby to the bedpost With his moth
er's apron-strings." ' : - 1 -'J
John Mellen's face flushed at these
taunts. No boy likes to be ridiculed, es
pecially when a crowd of his playfellows
are standing by, '. .:
" Be a man and come along! with us,"
said Harry Jones. " You are old enough
now to think and act for yourself."
" Come, John, come with ' Us," said
another.' " We shall have a grand time.
It won't hurt you just for once to have a
little1 fun." ' '- r s ; ' :
"No," snid John, "I shall mind my
father. The Bible says, Honor thy
father aud thy mother,' and I shall do
it." : r . I. . - , . , ' ,
" Come on, boys," said Will darting
off j " don't stand listening to his
preaching." ' ': 1 '' '
' John went home, and In preparing his
lessons for the next day 'and joining In

for being drunk and disorderly.,. Think
how anxious' their parents must have
