the engineer sounded his whistle.

some evil, hastened to the switch on
the main line in the town and took
possession of it.

approached ami just before the train
reached the switch James Mervin. a
striking switchman, who lives iu
Blue Island, rushed forward, threw
Yardmaster Justin to one side,
caught the switch and threw it.
There w as no time to stop the train,
although its speed was materially
decreased. The switch was so thrown
that the engine left the track, slid
part way down a small embankment,
and came to a standstill thrown to
one side at an angle of about 45 de

gine only partly left the track and
sustained no other damage thai a
