WiUlNKD liN A DREAM.
Scvornl years ngo 1 resided in n wild,
mountnitioiiM mid rnthcr lonely region of
Virginia. There wna a r.dli oad but n
few rods in front of my door, and u sta
tion nnd considerable vlllngo nbotit n
inllo to the west. Tho nearest station
to tho cast was nbout ten tullca distant.
I moved to tho place with my young
wifo Into in tho nutumn, nnd nbout tho
first of tho folio .ving Mnrch I wra at
tacked with typhoid fovcr nnd was 111
for nbout n month. But, thanks to n
naturally strong constitution nnd tho
careful nursing of n loving and Intelli
gent wife, 1 slowly recovered.
As soon ns 1 w:i3 strong enough to sit
up nnd walk n littlo I told my wife sho
had better take tho cars and go nnd visit
her brother, who lived about fifty miles
cast of us. Sho had been taking caro of
me so faithfully through my illness,
both by day and night, that I feared her
health and strength would fail her if
sho did not rest a while. I knQWHh
had been very anxious to go, nnd I felt
suro that her brother and his family
would bo very glad to seo her and would
try to make her visit n pleasant one.
She hesitated about leaving me, fearing
I might need her caro; but after waiting I
a fow days nnd seeing that I continued
to regain my health nnd strength she
decided to follow my advice. Accord
ingly ono ple.is.int morning about the
iniddlo of April, after doing everything
Bho could for my comfort and bidding
mo to bo careful about taking cold or
walking too far, sho started, intending
to bo gone a fortnight.
One day I exercibciT a littlo beyond
my strength, and felt quito tired at
night and lay awako for a long time.
At last I fell into an uneasy slumber
and dreamed a very curious and star
tling dream. seemed to have gone for
ward into tho future a conplo of days,
and instead of "Wednesday, tho 34th, it
seemed in my dream to bo Friday, the
2Gtli. It appeared in my sleep that a
heavy rain had been falling most of the
day nnd all of tho day before, but the
evening was clear nnd pleasant and not
very dark, though tho moon was not
shining. I seemed to bo walking along
tho railroad line toward the east. I first
passed through a wood about half a
milo wido; then for about a. milo
through fields coutaining a couple of
farm houses, one inhabited and the
I then entered another wood, and after
walking nbout a milo and a half I came
to a stream gently swollen by tho rain,
which had weakened tho railroad bridge
so much that the passenger train, in at
tempting to cross, had broken it down,
and tho bridge and carriages, completely
wrecked, were lying on both sides of the
stream, except portions that wero float
ing down. Some of the passengers lay
dead or dying among the ruins; some
wero floating in the water, and a few
wero clinging to trees and bushes on the
bank. It was a fearful and heartrend
ing bight, too fearful for description
and such as I trust I may never seo in
The next day early in tho morning it
commenced raining, and continued vto
rain through tho day and the following
night. I felt very lonely and uneasy all
day, which feeling was increased by te
ceiving a letter trom my wifo, saying
that sho intended to come homo on Pn
day night by the express train. I re
tired late, feeling much worried on ac
count of my fearful dream. And to add
to this fear, presentiment, or whatever
you may call it, tho dream was lepea ted,
and even moro distinct and vivid than
the first time.
When I arose in the morning tho rain
was still falling. This was Friday, nud
therefore was the day ou which my wife
was to start for home. There wero two
passenger trains from the east each day,
ono at 9 o'clock in tho forenoon and the
other nt 9 in tho oveniug. This last was
the express, and tho ono on which my
wifo was coming.
Toward tho middle of tho afternoon
tho rain ce.ised falling, and tho clouds'
slowly cleared away. Tho dream had
mado such an impression on my mind
that I resolved to attempt to find the
stream 1 had seen' so plainly in my
dreams, and if it appeared at all dan
gerous to attempt to stop the train be
fore reaching it. Accordingly soon u' ter
tho rain was over I got ready aud started.
I had never before had occasion to visit
the station in this directiou, and there
fore was entirely unacquainted with tills
9 part of the country. But I found every
thing just as it appeared in my dream.
Immediately after starting I passed
through tho wood I had been in my
dream and then entered tin, open field
. and found tho two farm houses, ono in
habited and tho other deserted. In fact,
everything seemed as natural asJif I had
really leen this way before I walked
slowly, and late in tho afternoon I came
to the stream, which flowed rapidly aud
seemed much swollen. But tho bridgo,
instead of being broken down and min
gled with tho broken carriages and man
gled passengers, was still standing; and
though its timber looked quito old and
weather beaten there seemed to bo littlo
danger of its breaking down beneath tho
weight of a passing train. Thero was a
heavy goods train duo from tho west
Snout 0 o'clock, and I resolved to wait
ut least until it camo, and if it passed
over in safety thero could bo, I thought,
but littlo danger of accident to tho lighter
In duo timo it camo thundering along,
and passed safely over the bridgo. Bat
tUougU it might have been owing to my
excited imagination, it seemed to mo
that bridgo bent and shook bonenth the
weight of tho train in a manner highly
Biiggestivo of danger. At all events I
resolved to wait a while longer and 6eo
if tho stream, which was sua nsiug.s
would liuvo any apparent effect upon tho
bridgo. I took with mo a lantern, mid
also a thick blanket to protect mo from

Well, to tnokn a long Mory nhort, I
went on In tho direction from which tho
train win to como, nnd soon found a
ilaco which commanded a good view of
Uio lino for n conMdcrnblo distance. 1
lit my lantern, wrapped tny blanket
closely around mo mid sat down to my
wcnrlsomo vigil of two hours. The
night was clear, and not very dark,
though no moon mils shining. I suf
fered nothing from cold, us It was re
markably warm, oven for tho cllmnto of
Virginia, and I succeeded in keeping
nwnke, though tho task was n difficult
Slowly tho moments passed by, but at
last 1 saw by my watch that tho timo
had nearly expired, nnd a few minutes
would decido tho fnto of tho train nnd
Us human freight. Soon I Raw n light,
far awny and very Rinnll at first, but
rapidly growing lnrgor nnd brighter.
I nroso, trembling with cxcltoment, nnd
commenced swinging tho lantern abovo
my head, and, us tho train drew near, 1
redoubled my exertions and Bhoutod as
loud ns I could.
Onward camo tho train nt a rapid
speed. It wns a timo of tcrriblo sus
pense to mo. Should thy engineer fail
to seo my signal, or not seo it in time to
stop tho train beforo going n few rods
past mo, I knew that no human power
could savo it. On It came, and, oh, joy
unspeakable! just as I gavo up my exer
tions and stopped from tho lino my
frantic signals wero observed. Tho en
gineer whistled for brnkes, arousing the
sleepy brakemen liko an electric shock,
who flow quickly to their stations.
Tho train was quickly Btopped, and I
then informed tho engineer and con
ductor of the danger ancad, while tho
frightened passengers left tho carriages
and gathered around mo. Many a brave
man grew palo when he learned what a
fearful death ho had so narrowly es
caped. Among the passengers I found my
wife, not mangled and lifeless, but alive
and well, though somewhat frightened,
and a good deal surprised at seeing mo.
Tho conductor gavo mo a seatnext to my
wife, and then had the train backed to
the station it had just left, from which
telegrams wero sent to warn all other
trains of the danger.
In tho morning my wifo and I took the
train for home. I havo but littlo more
to add, except that the company insibted
upon making mo a handsome present,
and also gavo mo n freo pass over the
road. I do not pretend to be nblo to ex
plain the dream, which was certainly a
remarkablo one, though doubtless nr
moro so than others could relate; but 1
am satisfied that this dream was the
means of saving many human lives from
u sudden and most terrible death. Balti
