FORTY YEARS IN THE CAR
"OLD MAN WHITE," ENGINEER tON
THE PROVIDENCE ROAD.
Ho Telia the Story or Two or Hl Thrill
lng Adrenturoa A Ban for the Slding
with "Old rs" Two Engines paaalog
on the flame Track.
"Old Man White" thoy call him over along
the line of the Providence railroad, where he
is almost as familiar a part of the soenery aa
the stations by the roadside between the city
and Dedham, past which he baa ridden on
hi locomotive nearly every day during the
last thirty-six years.
But wait until I tell you something of the
past life of the man, W. 12. White, familiarly
known as "Old Man White." (
It was away back twenty years ago that he
met with one of the first of his hairbreadth
escapes. Then be was running the old en
gine "Pegasus" on the hourly train out to
Dedham and on the return trip.
One day be was bowling along down from
Dedham toward the city at a speed of about
twenty miles an hour. The signals were all
right for him to go ahead upon a clear track.
Reaching Forest II'lls bis engine had just
pulled out on to the main tine from the branch,
and was forging ahead at an increased speed,
when away, just around a curve in the rear
of him, "Old Man White" saw a line of ad
vancing smoke. Fie knew In a moment that
the Providence express must be there bearing
directly down upon him. Should be continue
to go ahead t The signals were set all right
for him to do so. But he had a heavily loaded
train and a small locomotive. Should he try
to race the splendidly equipped express Into
the cityf Perhaps be might win, but the
chances were fifty to one against him. Not
for himself alone must be think. Behind him
ride hundreds of human beings that have
learned to trust Implicitly in his good judg
ment and skill.
What shall he dor
There la but a moment in which to decide
upon a course of action.
"My Ood, it is the express!" he exclaims,
as a big, block bulk of a locomotive comes
into sight around the curve that has hitherto
hidden it. Running at a speed of fifty miles
an hour, It is bound directly for him. How
can be get out of the way? Fie may save bis
own life by Jumping, but the unthinking pas
sengers, what of themf It is the work of only
a second for "Old Man White" to decide what
he will da
"I reversed the 'old Peg.'" as he remarks
when he tells the story nowadays, "and
thought if I could only get her to runniug
backward at a fifteen mile an hour speed I
should be O. K. I tell you the cold sweat
stood in spots all over me as I saw the express
bearing down upon us. Sho couldn't stop; it
was on the down grade. If she struck us it
was my last day alive. I suppose that I
thought more in a single minute then than
most men do in two or three months. My
fireman stared at me with his mouth wide
open, and be was as whia as a sheet. It is an
actual fact he was completely paralvzed with
fear. He could not move hand or foot But
you see that we got out of it all right at last,
for here I am, alive and well and smoking
my cigar as contentedly and as happy as
anybody. It was as close a call as a man
wants to have, however, and escape. That
Providence express train flew by me Just as
we had gotten fairly on to the siding. The
pilots of the two engines struck and mine
was torn away in the rush.
"But that Is not the only narrow escape
that I ever had to completely take the starch
out of me.
"Jim Prince and a man named Cole and
myself were ordered out one Sunday morn
ing, after a tremendously hard snow storm,
to clear up the tracks with the plow out to
Dedham. My engine was the old Roxbury.
When we started out she steamed poorly,
and I told the boys that they would have to
surely slow up for me to get steam before we
arrived at the end of the trip. In order that
they might not have to drag me if my power
should give out, I was placed in the lead near
the snow plow. We went out of Boston all
right,and when we got out to Rosllndale I gave
the signal to slow up speed, for my steam
uaagone aown to forty pounds. While we
were getting up a running pressure iagaia.J
looked up around the Dedhanj-tury, Ma i
could see that the suow waj drifted up there
f earf uUy. But we pulled ont on to the road
Sla--to'ab6tlt naif an hour, and deter
mined to wade through the piles somehow.
"You may doubt it, but we accomplished
that day a seeming impossibility in railroad
ing. "We made two engines pass each other on
"When we hod got up around the Dedham
curve we struck the snow so deep that it went
away up over the engine cab's windows. We
were pulling, each one of us, for all that we
were worth. Suddenly my old 'Roxbury'
struck a clear stretch of track. Her throttle
being wide open she leaped ahead at a fearful
speed and left the rails. She plowed like mad
over the sleepers, cutting some of them eight
inches thick in two. You have to be a party
to such an experience in order to fully under
stand how it seems to be Jumping along like
this. The engine rode completely over the
traok. I couldn't get my hand out to shut the
throttle and there was a Cull head of steam
on. There we were plowing along over what
and towards where I had not the slightest
idea. Every minute we were getting deeper
ana aeeper into a snow drift. At last the en
gine struck something and stopped short, and
the Jar was sufficient to close the throttle.
My fireman, 'Big Jim' we called him, was
frightened Just a little bit. As soon as the
engiuestopped be jumped head first into a big
now drift. I'll never forget how be looked
when he got up on his feet and cleared- some
of the snow out of his mouth.
" 'Be jabers,' be shouted, 'I'll never ride
on an engine again, again, to my dying day.'
And, sure enough, he kept his vow, for he
walked home to Boston in the snow, gave up
his place as a fireman, and went into some
other kind of business.
"That was a narrow escape, indeed, but the
most peculiar part of the story I have yet to
"When the Roxbury stopped I put my
hand upon the whistle bar and gave a blow
sounding as near like cock-a-doodle-doo as
possible. Then I began to wonder how the
outer two engines fared during the disaster.
I turned around to look for them, of course,
but I couldn't see anything of them there.
and I was puzzled to know what had become
of them. Suddenly I beard a whistle toot
away, as I thought, about half a mile up the
track toward Dedham. I supposed then that
it came from an engine that was coming
down from the village, where it had been
housed up over night, to help us clear np the
road, i gave an answering whistle. Soon
there was a reply, and after a short wait two
locomotives came steaming down the track.
You can imagine my surprise and consterna
tion when Jim Prince stuck his bead out of
the window of the old Washington, and
asked me what I had been up to.
"The last time that I saw him, you know,
he was on the track in his engine behind
me. And the funniest thing about the whole
affair was that neither one of us had missed
the other until the whole accident was a thing
of the past "Boston Globe.

We are informed that the item in last

not think of reflecting any discredit on
any one, especially the estimable per
sons that took offense at the above men

ourselves at wood sawing and gardening,
and think it an honorable occupation for
any lady or gentleman. We hope to be
forgiven, and are confident that an
humble, imploring, beseeching apology,
like this, would certainly burst in twain
the heart of a grindstone.

A Life Made Miserable
By dys)epsia is scarcely worth the liv
ing. A capricious appetite, heartburn,
puzzling nervous symptoms, increased
action f the heart after eating, sinking
in me abdomen between meals, and
flatulence after, are among the scccessive
indicia of this harrassing complaint. Two
things only are needful for its removal.
A resor; to Hostetter's Stomach Bitters,
and perjigienee in its use. These reme
dial me tsures being adopted, a cure is
certain. Taken immediately before or
after meals, this great stomachic pro
motes S'icretion of the gastric juice, the
natural solvent of the food. The nervous
and bili iu9 symptoms consequent upon
chronic indigestion disappear, as the
complaint gradually yields to the cor
rective and invigorating influence of the
Bitters. Appetite returns, sleep becomes
more refreshing, and as a consequence,
the body is efficiently nourished, muscu
lar powr increases, and the mind grows
sanguine. Use the Bitters for chills and
fever, a id rheumatism.
It doesn't amount to anything, of
course, but it's rather singular that a
keen retort is usually made of blunt

That Tired Feeling
Thar AfIH.luJ - - . . aia
That extreme tired feeling which is so dis
tressing and often so unaccountable lu the
spring months, is entirely overcome by Hood's
Sarsaparilla, which tones the whole body,
purifies the blood, cures scrofula and all
humors, cures dyspepsia, creates an appetite,
rouses the torpid liver, braces up the nerves,
and clears the mind. We solicit a comparison
of Hood's Sarsaparilla with any other blood
purifier in the market for purity, economy,
strength, and medicinal merit.
Tired all the Time
"1 had no appetite or strength, and felt
tired all the time. I attributed my condition
to scrofulous humor. 1 had tried several
kinds ot medicine without benefit. But as
soon as I had taken half a bottle of Hood's
Sarsaparilla, my appetite was restored, and
my stomach felt better. I have now taken
nearly three bottles, and I never was so well."

uau in years, ny uoou g sarsaparilla.
Everybody needs and shnnM tnk mnl
spring medicine, for two reasons :
1st, The body is now more susceptible tc
benefit from medicine than at any other season.
2d, The impurities which have accumulated
in the blood should be expelled, and the sys
tem given tone and strength, before the pros
trating effects of warm weather are felt.
Hood's Sarsaparilla is the best spring medi
cine. A single trial will convince you of Its
superiorit y. Take it before it is too late.
Tlte JIchI Spring Medicine
"I take Hood's Sarsaparilla for a spring
medicine, and I find it Just the thing. It tones
up my system and makes me feel like a differ
ent man. My wife takes it for dyspepsia, and
she derives great lKiiefit from it. She says it
is the best medicine she ever took." F. C.

"Last spring I was troubled with boils,
caused by my blood being out of order. Two
bottles of Hood's Sarsaparilla cured me. 1
can recommend it to all troubled with affec
tions of the blood." J. Schoch, Teoria, 11L
