I'.*rai?e from Justice.
Il was a bitter night in January ? a night
when homeless wanderers on the moor might
have sunk down and froze to death ? and
the very marrow seemed to congeal in one's
bones.
" There's one advantage in steam," prowled
a fat old gentleman in the corner seat; "wind
and weather don't a fleet if. Xo fle^h-and
biood horse could stand a night like this,
but the iron horse keej>s straight ahead,
whether the thermometer ia at zero or boil
ing-heat,"
."lust then the conductor entered.
?* Tickets, gentlemen, if you please."
" it's a dreadful night, conductor," I said,
feeling with stiffened fingers for my ticket in
the breast pocket of my coat.
"Dreadful, sir," feelingly responded the
conductor; "why, the brakemen can't live
outside, and so I look the other way when
they creep in, poor fellows, to get a breath
of war ai air at the stove. We have not hail
mi n a bad night since a year ago, the 2d of
February, when Tom Blakeslee, t he bagirage
ma-tcr. iroze both his feet, and a woman who
was coming from Cliic igo got off at I : mi's
Four-Corners with her baby in her arms a
corjise ! "
"Froze to death?"
" Aye, frozen to death, and she never
thought, i>oor thing, but it was asleep. * My
baby's cold,' says she, 'but we'll soon wan n
it when We get home.' It was just such a
nig 1 1 as this."
And the conductor opened the door and
p iinged across the opening into the next car,
c.ving out ?
" llardwiek !"
ii was quite a considerable city, with a
handsome iron depot, flaring gas-lamps, and
ti c usual crowd around the platform with
hands in their pockets, and cigar-ends flaming
thP'iigh the night.
< >ur car was nearly the last, of the long train,
and but one passenger entered it ? a slender
>oung girl, wrapped in a gray blanket-shawl,
am! wearing a neat little travelling hat of
gray straw trinuncd with stone-colored velvet
iliwers. She seemed to hesitate like one
uii;:>ed to travelling, and liually sat down
n<-ar the door.
" I'ardnn me, young lady," said I, "but
you had hotter come nearer the stove."
Hie started, hesitated an instant, and then
obey i (I.
??Dues this train go to IJayswater?" she
a-Ked in a voice so deliciously soft and sweet
that it seemed to thrill through me."
" Yes ; can I be of tiny service to you ? "
, i., ... j ?v w-? ?._*u >?<??<>)>
water. I would like t<> have a carriage then."
" We shah not lie there vet these three
liours.'
l)o we stop again V"'
<? Oulv al Exmouth."
She drew a deep si^b, seemingly of relief,
21 ml settled back in a cornel*. By the light ol'
t'i ?? lauip that hung in its brass fixture oppo
site I could see her fuce, that of a lovely
child. Apparently she was no more than
sixteen, willi large blue eyes, golden hair
brushed smoothly kick from h#r face, and a
lin !?? ro-v mouth, like that of a baby.
" Do you expect friends to meet you at
BaxswatVr, my child!'' 1 asked, incidentally.
" No, sir: 1 am going to sahool there."
<? it wiil be an awkward hour for you to
arrive at? 1 in the morning."
?'Oh, I am not afraid," she said, with an
artless little laugh; "1 shaJl go straight to
the seminary."
So the express train thundered on, with
ceaseless pulsing at its iron heart, and con
stant roar. Suddenly the signal-whistle
Hounded, and the train began to slacken its
speed.
"Surely, we arc not at Exmouth yet," I
thought, " unless I have fallen unconsciously
n-leep and allowed the progress of time to
escape me."
1 glanced at my watch. It was barely half
pist 11, and 1 knew we were not due at Ex
mouth until after 12. I rubbed the frost
from the pane and looked out. Wo bad
stopped at a lonely little way-station in the
midst of a dense pine wood.
41 Is this Exmouth?"
It was the soft voice of the pretty traveller
opposite.
" No, 1 don't kuow what place it is: some
wav-station."
" Does this train stop at way-stations?"
Not generally; they must have been spe
cially signalled here. You are cold, my child ;
I notice your voice trembles."
'? Jt is cold," she said, in a scarcely audible
voice, drawing her shawl around her. " Oh,
1 wish they would hurry ou ! "
*' We are moving once more," I said.
?' Conductor "?lor the man of tickets was
passing t hrou uh the car?" why did we stop
al that backwoods place?"
4% Out of water," was the reply, as the man
burticdly passed on.
Now, I knew very well that this answer
was not the true solution of the matter. Our
delay did not exceed half a minute? alto
gether loo short for replenishing the boilers ;
ami where on earth was the water to come
from in that desolate stretch of barren pine
woods?
Five minutes after, the conductor icon
| tered the ear. I made room for loin at mv
" side.
'? Sit down, conductor, you've nothing to
do now."
lie obeyed.
" \V4iat did you mean by telling me such a
lie just now?"
1 spoke under my breath ; hu replied iuthe
same tone?
" About what?"
" About the reason you stopped to take oji
a single passenger? a gentleman who lias
come down from Bays water for the pleasure
of t ni veiling once more over the same route !"
- Exactly so? for the purpose of travelling
it in certain societv? it's a detective ix>Liee
IILIU."
I was about to repeat the words in aston
ishment, when he motioned me to caution.
" Where is he?"
" i'he detective ? lie sits by the door yon
der, with a ragged fur cap pulled over his
eyes. L>id you ever soe a more jierfeet 8j>eci
111011 of the dilapidated countryman ? "
1 smiled: I could hardly help it.
" What is the case ? "
" A murder ? a man and wife and two lit
tfc children? tlieir throats cut Last night, and
" the house set on fire afterwards."
?'Great heavens ! what a monster ! "
W e liad cont inued the conversation through
out in a whisper, scarcely above our breath,
and now the conductor rose and left uie to
study the faces of my fellow-passengers with
curious dread and horror.
Somehow, as often as I resolved the matter
in my mind iny faucy would settle on a coarse,
gross-looking man opposite, with bushy beard
and sliaggy coat, with the collar turned up
around his ears. I felt that this man, with
bis heavy hanging jaw, was Cain ! Aiid as 1
looked furtively across I caught the wide
open blue orbs of the fair little girl.
Obeying the instantaneous impulse of my
heart, I aroye and went over to her.
"You have heard what we were wiylnr,!
my child .v" I
? Yes? n murder. Oh, how horrible ! "
"Do not be frightened ; no one shall hurt
you ' "
' she pmiled up in my face uit.i a sweet, cor ?
tiding innocence.
Our Ktav at Exmouth was but brief; but
during the delay I could see that the cver
watchftd detective had changed his scat for
one nearer the brutish man with the shaggy
coat.
? gee," faltered the young girl, " they locked
the cars down at Exmouth ; they are unlock
ing them now."
She was right.
" Probably they were fearful that the
criminal would escape," I remarked in an
undertone.
" Will you?may I trouble vou to bring me
a glass of water '! "
i rose and made my way toward the ice
cooler with difficulty, for the train was again
under rapid motion. To my vexation the
goblet was chained to the shelf.
''No matter," said she, with a winning
sinile, "I will come .myself."
I drew the water and In k! up th* cup, but
instead of taking it as she approached, she
brushed suddenly past me, opened the door,
and rushed out upon the platform.
"Stop her! stop her 1" shouted the detec
tive, suddenly springing to his feet. "She
will l?e killed! Conductor! brakeman! hold
up!"
There was a rush, a tiunult, a bustle. I
was lirst upon the platform : but it was empty
and deserted save by half-frozen brakeman,
who seemed horror-stricken.
" She; went pn.st like a shadow, and jumped
off as we crossed Cairn turnpike road," he
stammered.
"Jumped off the express .train!*' said the
conductor. "Well," lie added, shrugging
his shoulders, "she must have been killed
instantly. "What mad folly!"
" It's $o0() out of my pocket," said the de
tective, ruefully. "I didn't want a row be
fore we got to Bayswater, but f was a eon
founded fool. A woman cornered will do
anything, I believe."
"What?" 1 ejaculated, ''you surely do
not mean that child?"
"I mean," said the detective calmly, '? that
child, as you call her. is Atilla liurton, a
married woman, tvventv-six years of age,
who, last night, murdered l'oiir persons in
cold blood, and was trying to escape to
Canada. That's what I mean."
The train was stopped, and a party of us,
headed by the conductor and detective, went
back to search for any trace of the beautiful
young creature, whose loveliness and appa- j
rent innocence had appealed to my sympa
thies. Xor was it long before we found her,
lying quite dead beside the track, frightfully
mangled by the force of the heavy i'all, and
mutilated almost beyond recognition.
"Well, she's escaped justice in this world
if not in t lie next," .said the detective, gloom
ily, as he stood looking down upon her re
mains.
"Do you suppose she expected to be able
to spring off the moving train without inju
ry ?" I asked.
"Without much injury; most women arc
unreasoning creatures. I!ut I never dreamed
of such insane folly, or, you can reckon I
should have taken such prompt measures as
to prevent it."
They lilted up the dead fair thing and car
ried it to the neare.-t place of refuge? a lonely
farm-house among the frozen hills ? and we
returned to the train, reaching Bayswater
only a few minutes behind our regular time.
And when in the next morning's pallet's i
read an account of the murderess 1 thought
of the slender creature's blue eyes and rose
bud mouth, with a strange pitying thrill at
my heart.
