Slgsbeo as nil Artist.
Ono day in tho snriuK of 1875, when
Thu Daily Graphic of Now Vorii was in
tho full swing of its moteorio career, n
modest looking young man called nt tho
art department of tho paper, at its Park
place, ofiieos, with a package of sketches,
says the Philadelphia Times. Tho draw
ings were loft for inspection, and tho
artist, handing his address in Brooklyn
to tho assistant of thu art editor, took
his departure. Tho availability of tho
work was manifest as soon as tho pack
ag(j was opened, and a coimo series
from tho lot was reproduced at onco for
tho front pago. Thoir appearance made

A TRAIN ANNULLED.
"February ISth," said Train Dis-
patcher Moore as he wrote the dato in
tho blank space at tho top of his train
sheet. "I shan't forget that date very
"Whv not? Aro yon a believer in
mysterious things happening in con
neetion with the figure 13?" asked Hay
den, tho "third trick" man, who bad
just come iu at midnight to relieve the
"sppond trick" dispatcher and take
chari.'o of tho trains on the road.
"No, not particularly; but dates
sometimes recall events. No, there's no
story, at least not now." Then, after
writing out a brief transfer and watch
ing his relief sign it, Moore put on his
coat aud hat and started to go. At the
door he turned to say: "There arejio
extras. Nos. 10 and 13 are annulled.
No coal at McHeury for tho north, so
wo decided not to run a 13 today. Good
Tlio footsteps o'i tho stairs died away,
and tho man iu charge looked over the
nicely kept train sheet of the day pre'
vious with a critical eye.' The new
train sheet just dated was immaculate
save for the word "annulled " written
iu tho space resorvod for freight trains
16 and 13.
After carefully examining the posi
tion of trains aud "putting out" a few
orders everything was iu such good
running shapo that Hayden had a long
period of quiet. Ho filled aud lighted a
well seasoned brier wood and sat smok
ing meditatively. A train reported
"by" some way station now and then
was all that broke the silence of tho
night. The click of the siugle sounder
fell musically on the ear of the lonely
man. But ho was not alone. Ho did not
feel isolated when ho know that out on
that lino were 25 wide awake men iu
instant reach and a dozen trains all
within his immediato touch. Tho dis
patcher looked up expectantly as he
heard tho operator at Muldrow's Moun
tain call. It was probably the same old
"Is 13 running tonight?" He opeued
his key and answered the call from tho
"There's something comiug up tho
hill from tho north," ticked out tho
A glance at tlio train sheet showed
tho dispatcher that thero was not a
train within 25 miles of Muldrow's
"You're off on that," said ho, smil
ing at tlio thought of a joke on Opera
tor Kemp mistaking the full moon for
a headlight or an early morning saw
mill whistlo for that of a locomotive
"There's Homing coming eoBtf), aud
No. 2a is at Cordelia Junctifju."
"No, I heard them coming out of the
tunnel and can see the headlight now,"
said tho man at the monntaiu.
"Hold them," was the lacouio order
from tho dispatcher.
Tho operator at Muldrow's Mountain
rushed to the door. A glance showed
him that his signal lamp on the top of
tho station was burning brightly, its
red orb turned toward thdo approaching
train and plainly visiblo a quarter of a
milo to tho north. When ho reached the
front of tho ofiice, tho engino of tho
train was almost abreast of him. Ho
saw a dull, smoke hedimnied headlight
and noted that the engine was clouded
in steam, as if the cylinder cocks were
open, and tho wot, vapory cloud hung
uuout tlio Huge black boiler aud shroud
ed tho cab so that tho eugiueer and fire
man wero not visiblo. Tho operator saw
iu the cab a bright red spot iu thu side
of tho little lamp over the steam gauge.
It was tho only thing plainly visiblo
through the mist. Kemp saw that it
was h "light train" nud eugiue and a
cabooso. He kuew that they were not
going to stop, as the train was then
running fully 18 miles an hour.
Tho next instant the cabooso was op
posite him, tho palo green sido lights
gleaming Lalefully through tho fug.
Beforo Operator Kemp had recovered
from his astonishment tho train hurl
passed tho station and was beyond thn
rangoof his vision. A minute later ho
had communicated to the rliurmrc),,.,.
What bad happened, and theu ho sat
and listened to tho sharp suappiug of
the sounder while the man iu authority
gave an order to Cordelia Junction to
hold No. 22 for an "extra south, en
gino unknown, " and sent instructions
to havo tho train cot 111 Oil t lin ciflri
track and wait.
At Cordelia Junction the toleernnhpv
had heard all that had passed between
Muldrow's and tho dispatcher's ofiice,
and after ho had delivered tho orders to
tho crew of No. 22 ho stepped outside
to tako a look at his signal lamp. If
tho man at Muldrow's had kfc bin sic.

didn't proposo to have it occur at his
station. Then, as a mariner casts an an
chor to windward, he returned to tho
oflieo and trimmed aud lighted a rod
No. 23 was "in to clear" away down
on thu , uud tho operator at Cor
delia was alone. An hour passed, aud
lie heard nothing of tho extra fm, n,
north. Another hour was nearly gono
when ho heard tho roar of an approach
ing train, then four short blasts of No.
22's whistlo as a peremptory demand
for "signals," but ho heard no reply to
the call. Then the extra was on Mm.
Hu saw they were running too fast to
stop at his station; he noted that they
had not whistled for tho railroad cross
ing and wero taking no notice of his
station signal. Picking up his red lamp,
ho swung it across tho track in front of
tho engino. The' train did not slacken
its pace, but bore steadily on. Tho man
saw the smoked headlight saw thero
was no number displayed there iu ao
cordanco with tho strictest of rules. In
an instant more tho wild train had pass
ed Cordelia Junction regardless of all
signals, and the stupefied oporator heard
it whistling a ' county road crossing a
quarter of a milo to tho south of him.
Thirty minutes later Nate Anderson,
tho watchman at Big Cliffs bridge, was
preparing his bunk for a two hours'
nap before his relief should como. Sud
denly ho stopped aud listened. Surely
that rumblina was a train from tho
nnru, a moment later he heard
hoarse whistle, aud, taking up his flag
and lantern, the watchman went out to
flag the train over. As be reached tho
platform he saw dimly through the fog
a headlight coming on tho bridge 200
yards away. Raising bis white light to
"rlaa the train across," Anderson was
lookine at the approaching train when
suddenly the headlight gave a great
lurch, ho saw tho gleam of two green
lamns. and then all disappeared., Au
instant later he heard a frightful crash
of broken timbers, tbe hiss of escapin
sfpnni aud cries drowned out by borri
hie gurgling sounds -aud tbe rushing of
wrnrwrs son ffiet below the bridge. Ten
minutes later he had aroused the see

nor was there a bolt or a rivet displaced
about the great new steel strneture.
When Superintendent Belford of the
southern division came to his office the
next morning, there was the usual stack
of correspondence awaiting him. Hi
clerk had it all opened and nicely sort
ed, as was his custom. There were
three telegraphio reports that claimed
the croat man's attention at pnee. All
three bore on the same subject, and an
exasperating subject it was. The first
message was from the dispatcher's office
aud was to the effect that the operator
at Muldrow's Mountain had reported a
train coniina south at 3:10 a. m., when
the train sheet showed that there wai
no train on the road within miles of
him, No. 13 having been annulled and
no extras running. The report further
stated that the operator had insisted
that au engine and cabooso had disro
garded his red signal aud passed south
at 3:13 a. m., aud that no amount of
arguing would make tho man change
Attached to this was a second tele
graphio report over tho chief train dis
patnber's initials, stating that No. 22
had been held at Cordelia Junction to
await the wild engine reported as "by
Muldrow's Mountain at 3:13;" that 2
was delayed 1 hour and 85 minutes
thereby. This account ended with the
following : "Litchfield operator has seen
nothing of tho wild eugiue, and Leroy's
gravel train ran from Cordelia Junction
to Litchfield and reports 'no train or
engine between these poiuK ' "
Tho second report was .mi tho con
ductor of tho fast freight, No. 22, nud
briefly stated that they were delayed 1
hour and 35 minutes at Cordelia June
tion waiting for au extra, light engine
and cabooso, which passed tho Junction
south at 4 :4a without whistling sig
The report of tho station agent at
Cordelia Junction said: "Extra engine
and cabooso south by 4 :45. Disregarded
station signal aud failed to whistlo rail
The superiuteudent read these twice
over carefully. Then ho read tho morn
ing report from the transportation do
partment, nud ha noted that there wero
"no extra trains, '' aud that "drains .No.
13 aud 10 were annulled."
Thi3, then, was the question that surg
ed through the superintendent's brain
and threat'-ued to overwhelm him:
"What was tho light engiue? Whence
came it and whither had it gone?"
Turning to his clerk, Belford said,
Havo the crew of No. 22 come to my
office as soon as they get iu." Theu ha
wroto out soveral telegrams that were
to sot tho machinery iu motion for an
immediato investigation. For trains tc
run over his division without orders
and disregarding signals was a serious
matter an alarming matter, in fact.
A full statement from tho night oper
ators at Muldrow's Mouutain and Cor
delia Junction aud a talk with the crow
of 22 would probably clear it up.
Tbe transportation department knew
nothing moro than tho report by wi.e
had shown. Tho sole representative of
tho motive power department who could
throw any light on the case was the en
gineer of No, 22.
None of 22's crew was too well pleas
ed at the peremptory summons to ap
pear "on the carpet." They were
tired, sleepy and worn out, and it is not
a pleasant thing to bo called np before
the high tribunal of railroad life with
out knowing what charges aro pending.
An hour later found the train crew,
Master of Transportation Rainsford and
Superintendent of Motive Power Small
assembled iii tho superintendent's office.
The two lattor were at desks provided
for them, and the investigation had be
gun. The evidence of the fireman and
brakoman was of no value, as they were
insido when the wild engine passod aud
saw nothing of it. Conductor Blair'.,
statement was commonplace enough.
Ho was held for orders at Cordelia
Junction and got a "hold order" for
an extra south, number of engiue not
given. The extra had delayed them and
passed at 4:45. They were on the "Y"
waiting, and the switch was set for the
main line. This closed his statement,
and he was about to leavo when the su
perintendent said: "Wait a minute,
Blair; one more question. Was there
any number on the caboose or anything
you could identify it by?"
"There wasn't any number I could
eoe, but, come to think of it, there
wasn't any cupola on it. The side lights
were burning bright. I didn't see tho
headlight of tho engine."
The engineer's story was practically
the samo. They were too far down tho
"Y" from the main track to Bee it
plainly, but ho thought the headlight
was "burning up, "an expression which
means that tbe wick was turned too
high and the lamp smoking, so that the
tefioctor was dull, the glass blurred aud
tho headlight reudored practically of
tio value. Ho could not for this reason
toll whether there was a number on the
headlight or not. When asketTauto any
peculiarities about tho eugine, he said
thoughtfully: "She seomed to be foam-.
ing or soiuothing. She wasn't popping
off, but she had a mighty lot of steam
about her, as if she had a leaky steam
chest. They didn't whistle signals, aud

S sea. A boy brought in a bunch of
telegrams at this moment. Among thein
were elaborated statements from the
two night operators who bad seen tho
light train, but nothing of particular
value was added. That ended tho evi
dence. Nothing more could be gained
from any point. Tho three officials
made a recapitulation of the reports and
statements, but they didn't seom to ar
rive at any conclusion. No engmo aud

Then addressing himself to Rains

master of transportation after a mo
Then after a few moment's consulta
tion the heads of the respective depart

high official sat looking out of his win
dow, away across the river, far out over
the Ohio falls, where the clear hluo wa
ters were curling gracefully down to be
churned into lacy foam on the rocks bo
low. But he was not thinking of tho
water or the rocks.
Superintendent Belford roused him
self. Ho was not a dreamer, though he
had wasted a whole hour. It was noon,
tho screaming whistles told him, and
what he had expected to clear np in au
hour be had spent half a nay over, aim
it had now deepened into a positive
"There is but one more man to see
Ho may be able to clear this up some
way, " mused tho great man. "I thought
ho would be here by this time." Tho
door opened at this moment, and Super
iuteudent Belford arose and, holding
out his baud, 6aid cordially: "Good
morning, Mr. Moore. I sent for yon to
seo if you could help us to clear up a
matter of a wild engine on our divi
siou last night."
Dispatcher Moore bowed gravely aud
took tho chair tbo superiuteudent had
motioned him to.
"Hero are the correspondence and all
the memoranda we have gathered. The
chief dispatcher says you have been on
tho road longer than any of us and
thinks you can make something out of
"I will seo what I can find," said
tho dispatcher briefly.
Belford returned to the window and
left tlie man looking over the papers,
Belford had met tho dispatcher but

heard him spoken of ns a man of great
capacity and an extensive knowledge of
railroad affairs. As he looked at him

and taken altogether Moore was a dis
tinguished looking man. Belford won
dered why this capable man had re
fused promotion, preferring to remain a
second trick dispatcher, a positiou he
had now held for 14 years.
Thirty minutes passed before Moore
shoved back the papers ho had been
carefully reading, aud leauiug back in
his chair looked steadily at the ceiling
for full two minutes.
