A Horrible Story "What an
Engineer Did With a Man
"Who Disarranged a Railroad
, As the day of Chick's execution op
proaehes, horrible aud ghastly topics
are discussed in workshops, around the
evening stove, in the comer grocery,
and in "many tices of public resort.
Children shudder and cling closer to
their ' mother's knee, the garrulous
old visitor narrates .a t me story o'T a
hanging, or tire detain of some daik;
crime that eechrred when sL'e wts a
girl.. The 'solemn; the ' mysterious,
and th anprftitioas, which always
surrounds a haoitp, em to the
air, aod, although the topic is a dis
snstiaz'one. it taust be confessed
not ttie ictecTit tit Wmatky that a
morbid appetite in the public cravea-
aod demands the minutest deta in ot
the horrible barbarity. One of the
iuany recalled stories which are borne
apon the very wiud, the following was
told t a AciMtnel reporter a night or
two ago,: and to add ro the horrid sur
roundings, of the tory he' was in a
coffin sbo . viewing the coffin which is
to contain the last remaibs of the mur
derer Cluck. The story may be a true
one ; more likely it is false; but it is
iven as it was detailed, and it may be
that some one still living may remem
ber the circumstance and write the
tale. Some years ago there was a well
known eogiueer, whose name is not
given for good and sufficient reasons',
ran a passenger train on one of the
most popular and most traveled road-
that runs oat of Inuianapohn. At
certain place on the road, every niht
tor about a wieic, as tne passenger
train run by this engineer came thuu
denng along, it was certain to be
thrown from the track by obstructions
placed there. : Several of these mis
haps to the train caused loss of life.
and the compauy was' becoming con
aidcrably alarmed and the abd'tv oi
the engineer was being seriously quest
tioocd. Ooe night, as the unfortunate
train was. hearing the fatal spot the
engineer, who had been sjtt ng grum
anu silent at the throttle; turned to
his fireman and said: "If this' train
jumps the trsxk at that pi ice to-night
you follow rue ; dont stop for anything,
but keep close after me', bomebody
has been throwing this train off the
trac?f.' and I'm going to catch him."
When the train arrived at the usual
place it 'struck a misplaced rail and
was banked. Ihe engineer, closely
followed by the fireman, jurhped from
rhc erigine and rati into a cornfield,
and Started cp a rflau thatiay COnreaK
ed there. Upou brrngic the culprit
bacli to the wreck the enraged pusseu
gers waoted to lynch him' but the en
gineer, a stem, oohi, determined man
prevented them, saying that he would
take charge of him, and through th
intercession of the. conductcr the 'trem
bjiog wretch was left in charge of the
eogineer. Tho train was rightfid, and
was Boon speeding on its way. The
prisoner, who had confessed his fiend
ishtcss, had been seated on the engine
and the fireman placed beside him as a
guard. hen the train was on
smooth piece of track, bowling alon
a speed of twenty-five yrpiles .-an
ir, t-ie engineer becaoned the fire
man to atana ous ex xne way. ane
fireman- stepped aside; and the engin
eer picked upa found 'stick' ot wood
and Btruck ttie criminal such a bliw
upon the head that it stunned him.
He then caught the quivering form of
the ponr wretch, and opening, the fur
nace doers, threw, his body into the
hot, seething hell of flame.' The .doors
were shut, the train rattled along, and
oevier.-'Orftil upon his death'bed the
engineer confessed' the act wa it as-
certained what had beeu' the' fate ot
the fiend who had been in the habit
of throwing tl e train off the track
