THE WASHINGTON CRITIC, THURSDAY EVENING, JANUARY 24, 1889.
3 WASHINGTON CRITIC TRAPPED BY TELEGRAPH. "Whllo In n small town' In Wyoming Territory I learned that n lady llvlnj; there had been tho hcrpluo of a thrilling adventure- with train robbers, and curi osity and lovo for tho bravo Induced mo to cull on her to tell mo tho story. Wlion I went to her house I was wel comed by tv hnndsomo lady of about 30, unci, In response to my earnest request lor this ouo chanter of her life, she ro lated tho following: "la 1880, when but a girl of 18, 1 left my homo In Omaha and came out hero to till tho loncsomo position of n night oporator at n small station on tho Pacific Hallway In this territory. It was a dreary, dcsolato spot, in tho midst of a desert. Tho only buildings nt tho sta tion, apart from tho itepot, wcro a sco-tloii-liouse, occupied by n track foreman and a few Chinese laborers, n water tank nnd a coal shod. Tho day operator and agent, a moro hoy, slept at tho section honso, about 200 yards distant, so that during tho long, dreary night I was alone In tho dopot. "No. -1 express train, bound cast, was duo at 2:1C in tho morning, but It novcr stopped unless signaled and as this was tho only train duripg tho latter portion of tho night you can imagine my lonely situation upon the desert wild. 1 had my books and guitar for companlona and passed much of tho timo rending, and when tho doleful bowlings of tho wolves woro homo to my ears from tho distant sand hills, I would pick rip my guitar and endeavor to drown their cries with music - and Bonn. "Tho superintendent of tho division, a. ouoyaut, liglit-lionrteu young gonticman, camo over the road at frequent Intervals nnd choorod mo up with promises of a bettor position when a vacancy should occur. Ho often found mo on the vory brink of despair, almost on tho point of resigning uiy position, and returning to myhumblo homo--wad tho-mother who doponded on my salary for tho necessi ties of life; but his promises', his genial conversation anil words or oncouragc monl drovo away tho gloom, nnd I camo to look for his visits with a sonso of tho keenest pleasure. I began to regard him with a sisterly affection, ho was so lsind and tender nnd so sollcltlous for my wcl faro and comfort. 'Ono night, shortly nfter midnight, ns I sat at my table reading a lato novel, I thought I hcard-a shullling footstep on tho dopot platform; but as it was not re pented I concluded It was but a wolf more daring than his cowardly fellows, nnd I resumed my book. A fow moments lator I heard n low knock at tho door, which I always kopt looked, undnstrango feeling camo over mo. During my sev eral weeks' stay at tho elation I had novcr had a visitor, and tho sudden knock, so low, yet so startljngly clear In tho stillness of tho night, caused my form to tremblo and my cheek to blanch. "My first thought wns of Indians, and then I reasoned that it might bo somo tramp desiring shelter. "Wlillo I satthcro In affright tho knock was ropcated louder than boforo, and mustering all my cour ago I approached tho door and asked: " 'Who's there?' "A gruff volco replied1.! " 'A travolor who desires to tako tho castbound train.' "It was my plain and unmistakable duty to admit him, nnd with trembling fingers I drew tho bolt. "Instantly tho door was pushed vio lently open, and I sprang back to tho tablo and sank into my chair in torror, when seven burlev men. wenrinc cloth masks on their faces and armed to tho teeth, cntprcd tho ofllco. Ono of them, evidently tho loader, walked up to mo, and, pointing a largo .revolver to my head, said in a low, lirm voico: " 'Gal, wo don't want to hurt you, but if you mako a suspicious move, or scream, or givo nny nlarm, so that any o' tho men In tho sectlon-houso kin-hear you, I'll spllo tho looks o'i that pretty faco with a bullet, lie quiet and sensible, nnd bohavo yourself, and ycr shan't bo hurt. Whar's yer red signal lamp?'' " 'What would you dor' I, gasped. " 'Nono o' your business. Wo don't want to hoar any unnecessary back talk, nor no impertinent questions. Whnr's tho red lamp?' "A chill of horror swept pver mo when tho truth burst upon mo that I was In tho hands of a band of despcrato. train rob bers, whoso evident intention was to sig nal the train and rob tho express car at my station. What could I do? It was vet thrco hourB until the train was duo, hut I could not cludo my captors to rouso tho section men, and I knew by tho ugly gleam in tho leader's eyes, through tho holes in his mask, that If I mado tho least outcry ho would not besltnto to carry out his threat. and murdor mo. I know they could ilnd tho lamp easily by searching for it, nnd In a trembling volco told him It was hanging just outsldo tb,o door of tho freight room. Ono of tho men got it, and nftor examining it toseo that it was in order' tho rough band took scats to await tho Incoming of tho train. Tho loader lit his plpo and looking at mo steadily for a few moments said: " 'Young gal, whou that ar train toots her whistle wo'vo got somo work for you. An ofllclal duty, as you might call It. You must go out thar on tho platform an' signal tho train to stop an' tako on somo first-class passengers. An', lookco hear, If you mako a suspicious movo, or don't swing tho red lamp In tho proper way, we'll just ventilate that graceful body with bullets, an' jump on our horsos an' git. Do you understand?" "A desporato rosolvo had been taking shape in my bowildered brnln. 1 replied that I fully understood him, and with it piteous cry, 'Oh, you will make a mur derer of mot' I throw my arms and my head down upon tho tablo. and begun to cry and sob as If my heart wcro hi caking, Ilad ho seen my faco ho might havo noticed it total iibsonco of tears. I was crying for a purpose. "When my arms dropped upon tho table I allowed my hands to fall upon tho annnturo of Iho telegraph instrument, so that I could prevent It from ticking, whllo my right hand rested upon the key. Sobbing, so that any slight clicking tho koy might mako would not reach tho robbers, 1 oponcd it and slowly made tho telegraphic characters: II K li V. "Theso I repeated eovcrul times, hoping they might reach tho car of uomo op erator on tho lino. I then slowly and distinctly wrote theso words, still sob bine violontlv: " 'Who hoars this for heaven's sake report to train dispatcher nt Laramie quick that I am In tho hondB of seven robbers who will compel mo to flag No. 1. Solid holp quick. "Then I signed' numo and ofllco call. "I roloased tho urmature and tho in strument clicked out: " 'Hraco up llttlo girl I hoar you-II.' " '11' was tho train dispatcher's call. With ft flerco shout, tho leader sprung forward and ntdoly snatched mo uway from tho tablo, anil asked: . '"Gal, what's that?' " 'Only a distant olllco asking for ordor for a freight train'' I responded. " "None o' yer lyln', you llttlo imp,' be roared 'Ycr up to homo tvii'l; ' "'No,' I replied, '1 am not. If I wcio doing that, my Uugi'ia would bu on the Instrument. Don't you see I am not touching It, and yet It works. It Is only an order to a frolght train away down at Medicine How "Keep away from that tnble?! ho said, savagely. 'An If I ketch" you at Any tricks I'll choko tho llfo nut of you.' "Oh, how eagerly my cars drank In ovcry word tho Instrument clicked out I I hoard a telegronito the .sheriff of Green Illvcr, twenty miles west, asking him to arm n posso of men at onco and got on board n special trnln which would bu ready for him. Then auolher. to the young supeilntcndcnt, who was at Green illvcr, tolling him how slowly written words had been heard by the dispatcher, and asking him to sunerviso tho prepara tions nnd fly to my relief. Then n third dispatch to the master mechanic In structing him to fire up his fastest passen ger cnglno and couple on to a currlogo and await tho superintendent's orders. My heart beat so violently that It almost took my breath awny. It seemed an ago ere I heard tho Green Illvcr operator call tho dispatcher, and say: . "'The superintendent, with slioriff attd twenty armed men, aro aboard, nnd train ready for orders.' "The orilcr camo flying. It told the engineer ho had a, clear track, and' to run at his very highest speed to within a hnlf milo of my station, and with his party to alight. Then camo tho wolcomo ro port from tho Green ltlvor ofllco: " Spcclnl cast departed 1:15.' "Oil, how my poor honrt bent, nnd how my ovory norvo tingled with ex citement. 1:10 I mentally figured that tho train, on such a despornto errand, should mako nearly a mllo n minute, and reach tho stopping point at 1:110. 'Tho robber chlof gave his men their instructions. I was to bo sent nlono to 'signal tbo train, nnd when it halted tho band would make a rush nnd board tho train. "Hill, you jump on tho cnglno ns soon as sho stops and hold the engineer nnd llrcmnn under your gun. Jack, you pilo into tho mall car an make the clerk give up his registered lottors, nn' Yank an' Allcck Ml work tho express car, whllo Tom and Shorty hold tho conductor mid brakeman back. Do your work quick 'nn uoiu, an' don't Do ntcnrd to mini powder if necessary. Thar's a big haul on that train an' wo'vo got to have it. "How eagerly I watched the clock, and how slowly, how very, vory slowly tho hands seemed to move 1:21, 1:'.'5 and 1:30 wcro ticked off; 1:351 AVould thoy never come? "The men sat on tho bench along tho west sido of tho room, facing nlong tho two windows on tho cast. I trlod to llguro how long It would requlro for tho men to walk to tho depot from tho stop ping placo. Perhaps oven then they wcro surrounding the station, and I might hear n Knock at tuo uoor any instant, would there bo ft fight? Oh, horriblo thought! In n fow moments I might sco men shot down boforo my face, and I might myself bo killed. I almost fainted with fright. Tho blood seemed to freeze In my veins, nnd I grasped tho chair or I would havo fallon to tho floor; 1:101 Thcro camo a fearful crash of glass, and tho black muzzles of a perfect cloud, of rifles wcro thrust through tho window and pointed directly at tho rob bers. Then n voico cried out: " 'Men, throw up your hands! I. am tho sheriff, and in tiio numo of tho lnw demand your surrender. Mako but' a move, and I'll order mv men to Urol' '"Yer llttlo catl' hissed tho loader, glaring at mo savagely as tho band aud only hold aloft their bauds. Then tho sheriff and thrco men entered and dis armed and handcuffed tho robbers, and I saw tho superintendent looking at mo and hcurd him say: 'What a debt I owo you, my bravo girl, nnd then I fell faint ing into his arms. "When I regained consciousness I "was lying In my room at Green ltlvor, with several ladies around mo, and was told that sovou days had elapsed slnco tho capturo of tho robbers. I was suffering from brain fevor, brought on by tuo tor. riblo strain I hud passed through, and had been unconscious for that long po rted. For many days thorenftor I nov crfd on tho border between llfo and death, and tho supcrlutondcnt was ot my bedside sevoral times every day,chcorlug mo up with words of encouragement and doing nil in his power to nlloviuto my sufferings. "I finally rocovorcd and wns called Into court to testify against tho despcruto gang. I shall uevor forgot tholr flerco glnnco towards mo as I told how I had entrapped them, or how, in splto of tho judge and court ofliccrs to prevent it, tho crowd cheered me as 1 left tho stand. Tho men wcro sent for long terms to an Eastern prison, and I never havo heard of thorn slnco." "And did tho company rownrd you for saving tho train?" I nslced. "Well, only slightly. CorpqrntIou,s havo no souls, you know. Hut I re venged myself on tho Buporlntondaut in a manner." "In what way?" "I marrfed htm," sho replied with charming smile. Air In Scotch Tenement. Tbo authorities of Dundco, Scotland, lmvo been making somo thorough Investigations of the air In poor tenements. This led to a com parison with tho air of sowers, and ft was found that tho sower air was decldodty tho purer and safer ot tho two. That Is, thero was moro carbonic acid and organic matter and other poisons Iti-tho alrot a badly von tllated apartmcut, occupied by human beings, than in a sower. This Is doubly truo of over crowded and badly ventilated halls and lecture roonis, and such places as aro often used for auctions. Tho fact may bo that much Is laid to tbo back set of sowor gas, which Is simply tho natural air of the house, ovllnu to lack of common eenso In sanitation. Thousands of houses tjet no ventilation, except that which is accidental; sowors would bo more- whole some. Plumbers aro blamed whou tho blamo bhould rest with tho occupants and owners. St. Louis Globo-Dcmocrat. Whut tho Hoy Wanted. Tho lawyer was sitting at Ills desk, absorbed In tbo preparation of a brief. So bent was ho on his work that ho did not hear tho door as It was gcutly pushed open, nor sea tho curly head that was thrust into his ofllco. A llttlo sob at tracted tils attention, and turning he saw a faco that was streaked with leccut tears, and told plainly that tho little one's fccllug had been hurt. "Woll, my llttlo one, did you want to sco me?" "Aro you a lawyer?" " Yes; what Is It you want?." "I want." and thero was u rosoluto ring In his voice, "1 want a dlvorco from my papa and mamma."

"I shall always look back with plcasuro to tho epoch of my Homuu sojourn tho days passed in studying and sketching, nnd In visiting tho marvellous ruins, the famous uallerics, the vast edifices, each ono of which held for mo n lesson or a counsel, Thoro, too, was formed ono of tbo closest friendships of my life, the Intimacy with Victor Masso, the com poser of 'Paul and Virginia,' a tie which continued unbroken to tho last hour of his life. 1 first made tho ac quaintance of Mnsso at tho bedsido of our fellow-countrymen, Herbert.

ADELAIDE ltKMIIt.i:. "In his companionship my early fond ness for musio was revived, and It was still further fostered bynn acqunintnnco formed by mo with Mr. onrtorl.s, nn English gentleman then residing In Homo witli his wifo and family. "Mrs. Burtoris was originally Miss Adelaide Kemblo, tho famous prima donna, nnd she employed her lnngnlfl cout votco und talent, then lost to the world at large, for tho delight of her husband and her guests. Sho nftcrwnrd became tho mother-in-law of tho daughter of Geuornl Grant, but nt tho time I knew her shq had but two children, a son named Grovillco and a daughter. Her younger son, Algernon, was not born till somo years lat.er. "i oncn mct,too,ai nor nouso ner illus trious sister, Mrs. Fanny Kemblo, nnd a fow yearB ago 1 had tho plcasuro of re ceiving a call from Mrs. komblo's oldest daughter, Mrs. Wlstur of 1'hiludolphlu, who camo to rovlvo tho very pleasant memories of my acquaintance with her mother. I shall no't soou forget tho de lightful musical ovonlngs wo enjoyed nt tuo Villa iuoniirugono, tuo villa ineu inhabited by thoSartoris family at Komo, nor tho hours mado brilliant by tho talents of tho two gifted sistors. It was an exceptional oxperienco in llfo for nny young man who was interested in tho higher forms of literature and art. ure IN HOME. "I remained in Romo for flvo years. During that time I painted a nuinbor of pictures and several, portraits. Among these last was a likeness of my dear frlond Victor Masse, and also one of Mrs. Adelaide Kemblo Burtoris. Ono of the most Important of my historical paintings of this epoch, tho Death of Moses, is now, I bcllovc, In a gollery in AVashington. My Salon picture of 1852, tho Madness of vuueuu, wiucu i. uuguu in iujiiiu iinu iiu Ished In Paris, was bought by Mr. Alfred UrUyas, and was by him presented to tho Art.Mufieum of Montpeller. Almost Im mediately after my return to Paris I was called upon by the architect of tho Hotel do Villa to paint twelve panels In tho Sallcs ties' Carlntldos In that cdi.flco, then in process of restoration. "With what delight I accepted this commission, so flattering for so young nn artist, can woll bo imagined. 1 chose ns 'tho subject, of .ray work tho twclvo months of tuo year. No vcstlgo now re mains of those paintings, which porlslicd in tho flames kindled by tho commune, except a series of engravings oxcouted by M. Achlllo Jacquet by ordor of my good friend, M. Armund. "It was for tho hotel of M. Perolo, on tho Rue du Faubourg St. Honoro, that I oxecuted ono of tho most importunt of my dccorntlvo works. Tho celling represents the flvo souses, and ttio panels lyric poetry, comic poetry, oloqucuconnd tho dance. Somo years later I com pleted the decoration with six .moro panels representing tho hours. 1 also painted the ceiling and tho dessus des por'tes of tho hotel on tho Placo Vendomo, now occupied by tho Viscountess do Trederu. l'KUISHED IN TUB FLAMES. "My celling representing tho"Triumph of ITlora," which I oxocutcd for' tho Pa vilion of Flora in tho Tuilorles, perished in tho flames that consumed tho palncu. Another of my decorative works, com prising Econcs from the llfo of St. Louis, which I painted for tho Pantheon, formed my chief contribution to tho Unlvorsal Exhibitor nt Paris In 1878. Hut for years past I havo nccoptcd no commis sion of that nnturn, preferring to dovoto myself to portraits and to historical painting. "I liko always to havo on hand a por trait or group of portraits, ns well as an iinaglnatlvo work. I find reposo in going from ono to another, changing my stylo of work to rest my eyes and my brain. I am very proud of tho fact that a number of tho rising and successful artists of tho day claim mo as their tonchcr.
