The QailyShort Story
A Desperate Ride.
Mary and I were waiting at Rugby
for tbe midnight mall express to take
us to London on a visit to my mother.
Oli, Charley, show me the engines,
she ald to me while we were standing
on the platform, and as we had an hour
to wait I took her into the Hhed. where
several engines were standing with
6 (can j up ready for work.
WVll. after taking her around tbe en
gine room I left her for a few moments
standing by one of the engines while I
went to give some directions to the
driver who was to take my place till
our return from Loudon. t
On coming baek to the place where I
had left her I was horrified to perceive
my Mary standing uioa the engine,
which either in siort or by accident,
God only knows how, she had set In
motion aud which was already flying
out of the shed at a rate of speed
which rendered it utterly impossible
for me to overtake her.
"Charley, Charley, help me!" were
the last words I beard from the lips of
my darling as the engine vanished In
the darkness down the incline beyond
To jump on to another engine and
follow the runaway was the work of a
moment, but by the time we were start
ed upon the main lino my darling, I
knew, would be rushing at a fearful
pace, faster aud faster every moment,
down the long incline between Uugby
and Ormsby bank.
Then comuipiurd a terrible race for
life or death, mile after mile, every mo
ineut Increasing our speed, until we
were going at n perfectly awful pace.
We dashed away into the darkness, I
Ktauding on the front of my engine,
watching with straining eyes for the
one ahead of us.
All in vain! l'ast station after station
we dashed at lightning speed; onward,
over bridges and viaducts, through the
wind aud darkness, yet never a sign of
the runaway engine and Its single pas
senger. What Lad 1kh-oiu of her? Had she
tprung from the flying engine to a more
speedy yet not less certain death at the
bottom of some deep embankment or
had I in my wild, reckless pursuit
driven over her?
After dashing along at this mad pace
for nearly a couple of hours we swept
down the hill Into the Kilsby tunnel,
aud then right ahead of us on the down
Hue. along which 1 knew the uight mail
to the north was coming from Iondon,
I suddenly caught sight of the runaway
engine. The furnace door was open,
and as the distance between us lessen
ed I saw plaluly as I sec you In tlire
vivid light of the blazing fire the form
of my Mary standing out In bold relief
against the blackness of the tunnel.
Her slight form dilated in the weird
firelight. Her hands grasping the rail
ing, she stood upon the tender the pic
ture of despair, apparently In doubt
whether to remain uikhi the flying en
gine or spring off into the darkness.
In vain I called to her to remain on
tho engine. My shout was of no more
avail than a whisper amid the roar
produced by the echoing walls of the
tunnel. Suddenly the horrible thought
flashed across my mind that the down
express must be nearly due, and. look
ing at my watch with a bott of desper
ate calmness which astonished me aft
erward, I saw that it was half past 1
o'clock, the exact moment, as I knew
well enough by experience, when tho
mail train, coining In the opposite di
rection, ought to be entering the other
end of the tunnel. How earnestly I
prayed that it might be ten minutes
late that night! The agony of a life
time eecmed to be crowded into the
uext few moments. Now we appeared
to I Hearing the flying engine, then it
seemed to burst away from us again
with renewed speed. At one moment
my darling seemed to le almost within
reach of my arm. and at the next she
was flying away from mo again.
Gradually, however, the distance be
tween us lessened, and at last the two
engines were running neck and neck,
with only the "six foot" way between
the two lines of rails to separate us.
Then for the first time Mary turned her
head and saw me close behind her.
Motioning her to remain quiet, I pulled
myself together for the leap. and. with
both engines running at full speed, I
sprung clean across the six feet be
tween us and alighted upon the step
close to her.
At the same moment I heard the
shrill whistle of the express as it enter
ed the opposite end of the tunnel and
saw, to my horror, that there was not
more than a hundred yards between us.
To screw down the brakes aud reverse
the engine was the work of a moment,
but I knew too well that it was too late.
No power ou earth could avert the fear
ful collision, and there was nothing left
us but to die together. To spring from
the engine would have been instant and
certain death, so we stood, I with my
arm around her and Mary with her
head burled upon my breast, waiting
for the end. ,
Once she raised her head, and we
looked into each other's faces, "a mo
ment's look, a lifetime's memory."
Never, as long as I live, shall I forget
that last look, the intense light of the
furnace streaming upon that rale, de
spairing face upturned so hopelessly
"Together, dafflng!" I whispered as I
clasped her wildly to my heart, then a
sudden shock, a deafening crash, and
all was over, and I remembered no
more till I awoke in the little- waiting
room at Brisley. with tbe doctors
standing by ray side.
A month. after, when I left the hospi
tal, my Mary was lying at rest in the
little cemetery outside Rugby, and all
that remained to me of my lost bride
was the lock of hair she bad given me
when first I won her love.

The Quakers are an agricultural
sort of people. They own large farms
divided into settlements or communi
ties. There are different branches of
Quakerism, viz: the Hicksites, tbe
Wilberites and the orthodox. The
Shakers are an off-branch of Quaker
ism; they do not marry nor are they
given in marriage. The Quakers be
,lieve in unity and holy marriages,
and you never hear tell of a case of
scandal among the Quakers. Sjme

A God Fearing People.
The Quakers believe In tbe same
God as tbe Hebrews; tho same Savior
as the christians, only their way of
worship differs. When they no to
the meeting house they bow their
heads in silent worship, making no
complaints, removing not the Lat to
king or ruler, THEE and THOU to
friend and foe. They are a God-lov
ing and God-fearing people, believing
in rivinr their hearts to God and
their hands to labor. That tho origin
of all sin is a lie; if there were no lies
there would be no sin. their commu
