THE MIDNIGHT ESCAPE
UNDER COVER OF DARKNESS BILL
NYE MAKES HIS TRAIN.
An Almost Fatal Delay Which Necessi
tated a Private Engine and Equipment
for a Distance of Some Miles Inside
View of a Fellow Traveler.
Copyright, 1991, by Edgar V. Xye. .
In Kentccky and Trkckino. South, i
Much has been paid by philosophei-s
aud savants regarding the ltnelicial ef
fects of sleep. Nature's sweet restorer,
balmy sleep, has no doubt received as
many favorable press notices as any at
traction, perhaps, that i.s now a candi
date for public fav.r: and yet sleep may
be justly and severely criticised. Sleep
and ita beneficial effects are often over-
estimated. A traveliiifr man stated to
me yesterday, as he robbed tip a special
gas tip which he uses at hotels where the
tip has been economically pinched tv
gtther by the landlord, that he had ob
served very often, not only that sleep
failed to refresh, bnt actually seemed in
jurious. "For instance, last evening I went to
bed as happy as a lark, and this morning
when I woke up the first feeling that
came over me was one of the deepet
sadness. I lay it to sleep. Sleep is over
estimated. Last night I never felt more
kindly toward every one. I remember
of hugging the night clerk, a man whom
I now loathe. Why was it? Sleep!
Sleep had changed me from a glad,
merry hearted lxiy, whose songs enliv
ened the night like the silvery mnsic of
a gentle waterfall, to the pssimistie and
austere cynic yon see lefore yon. To
night I will guard against this mnch
talked of sleep. I will stay np all night."
I got np at 2:30 a. m. yesterday and
thought of his remark. If anything can
be more injurious than sleep I think it
is early rising. Early rising and an illy
lighted (this word I got at a fall open
ing in Chicago) an illy lighted stairway
threw me at Benton Harbor and injured
my ankle so that I could not get to the
depot without assistance. At that hour
it was impossible to get a carriage, for
the city was yet young, like the newborn
day itself. The clerk tried to rouse every
or any livery stable in town, bnt be could
Meantime I lay niu.ti.mc in the arm
of an attendant. My brath came in
quick but yet invisibly checked pants.
The train would 1k due in eight min
utes. What to do? Anon I heard a dull
thud us the clerk broke iu the door of a
blacksmith shop and pulled out a piano
box boggy valued at $14. ."iO.
Hastily placing me in this with the
aid of my attendant and valet, lie started
on a run for the station, neighing joy
ously as he met a team that lie recog
nized. In a trice, or jKK-.sibly a trice and
a half, we were there. I was takeu out
and placed in a tterth, where I moaned
the balance of the night away; but I
cannot be too grateful to the clerk of the
hotel at Benton Harbor, where this mel
ancholy accident occurred, for he showed
tact, ability and kindness, to say noth
ing of the fact that I found him to lie
thoroughly gentle and a good roadster.
As he left us I wrang his hand two
timed (for ice water), and, turning away
my head so that, he conld not sec my
tears. I presented him with my auto
graph. When I get home I am going to
end him a nice new red fly net for next
The flight from Benton Harbor was
not much like our triumphant entry iu
the evening. All the previous day we
had battled against disaster and delay.
Aa we left Manistee the engine broke
down so that we conld only use one side
of it. Rapidly we lost time. Once we
lost over three-quarters of an hour in
less than twenty minutes. This meant
that we would fail to connect at Grand
Rapids, and so miss Benton Harbor,
where we had agreed to lecture to a man
for whom we had a great deal of respect.
Every time we stopped we had to look
out or we would be on th "dead point"
of the engine, and then it would take
half an hour with a piuchbar and some
profanity to start again.
Finally we got desperate. I told the
conductor how we were situated and
asked him if he could hold the Grand
Rapids train. He seemed to fear he
could not, as we were already three
hours late and rapidly falling farther
back into the early fall. However, he
aid that all would be well.
It is very trying to sit and suffer that
way, knowing that there has been an
advance sale of $8, with the chances of a
door sale running it np to $11 or f 11.50,
and that bitter disappointment is likely
to fall upon people who have come from
a distance "our best people' too.
When we got to Grand Rapids an or
der was there from Superintendent Con
ley to provide us with a special engine,
baggage car and coach, and in fifteen
minutes we were traveling at a high
rate of speed toward our destination.
Dear reader, did you ever travel by
yiiflTtf of your own special train? If not
yen do not know" what real, keen enjoy-
Conld put our feet on the seats, smoke,
gamble till after bedtime, talk loud,
drink out -sf all the ice water tanks at
once, wipe our faces on two clean towels
at a time and just give ourselves up to a
delicious sent of lawlessness that made
me feel young again.
I can still remember how I felt the
first time I rode on a pass. I did not
need the trip, and I lost two days at the
office to do it, but I could not be com
fortable with the beautiful pass in my
pocket. I rose when the conductor came
to me and showed him my puss. I
watched the rest of the poor, unknown
nassemrers to see how it would strike
them, jioor jieople, common working peo
ple, who had to pay l'ull rates and sit on
The conductor looked me over so that
he would knov me next time, and then
he said: "This pass is only good on the
Short Line. It's no good on this train."
I paid him the money that I was go
ing to fool away on an overcoat, ami
that night, instead of putting np at the
Grand hotel. I paused at the Travelers'
Home, a plain place provided for the en
tertainment of man and lieast (in the
If I owned a railroad or two and could
ride in a special car, I'd lie just as
haugl.ty as those gentlemen are who do
so, I'm afraid. Wealth naturally en
genders an element of hanght. I think,
aud yet I'd like to try ir, if for nothing
more than to be able to give the engi
neer a cottage and the conductor a cow
every time I tmik a trip.
This morning, on the way to Louis
ville, I saw a handsome man with white
side whiskers sleeping in our parlor car.
I thought at first that it was John
Bright, who made such u hit with his
great disease, but then, I thought, it
cannot lie Bright, for he is di-ad.
Soon he opened his eyes pleasantly,
waking up like a little daffodil on the
wind swept mead. Then I saw that he
was Daniel Dougherty. He was to speak
at Louisville soon, and so he was going
there. When he has to speak at a place
he begins by goi ng t here. He was right
glad to see ine, and his face lighted up
the moment he saw me with such a look
of delirious pleasure that I felt glad I
could shed such sunlight on the path
way of others. Mr. Dougherty is a most
eloquent speaker, a k'fti judge of intel
lect and ability in ot tiers, and is writing
life of Edwin Forrest, which will Ik

It was in Michigan a week ago that
Mr. Burbank and I went to the drug

scholar, and used to translate French

slowed me how uncertain life is, and
t.ien I made a solemn promise that 1
vould lie a lx'tter man. So I do not
translate French novels now. I am far
from what I ought to be. of course, yet.
b it I have made that much of a stride
iti the right direction.

with his pocketknife, carefully wiping
it on his trousers l"f ore and after using
it. I never saw such a neat man. Then
he would go again to the tank with his
baroneter and come back, dignified, but
court y and kind.
Once he imt a handsome little blond
boy in the uLde aud reached out to pat
him on the head, but his weather re
searches had worn him out pretty well,
so he missed the child and struck an
old woman from Fern, Iud.,on the brow,
pulling off her spectacles and sticking
them in her lunch before he conld re

me atleep. Judgiuir by the wrinkles in
the rof of his mouth, I would say that
he is a man about sixty-eight years of
age, b it wonderfully well preserved.
He las done it himself. He has done

But I oughtn't to make such light aad
flippant remarks about so gentle and

ashamed now that I have exposed him

I feel sure that no sorrowing heart ever
came to him for gentle pity and cheer
that went hungry away; no broken
winged bird with grieving cry ever came
to nestle in that broad and resonant
breast to be clubbed away with cold
and cruel scorn; and yet I grieve to
say that as I sit here writing these
words and look far down into his
open face no one can deny that ' the
last time he wiped off his teeth he must
have been thinking of something else,
for the lowers are on the ntlfter side and
the vulcanized rubber roof of his month
is down stairs, so that he seems almost
to be standing on his head. It makes me
almost dizzy to look at him now. So no

Well do I remember how hard it was to
it on a long bench at school and be quiet
for several hours, and how often I trans
gressed aud became fidgety. I hare a vivid
1 remembrance yet of the sensation caused
by a rattan arriving at sixty miles an hour
