Sankey's Double Header (Continued from Page Two.) given us' tue superlnteuujent to rig up the double header and get against the Isow as quick as it could be made ready. All that day and most of the night Pelghbor worked twenty men on San The cabs were buried in uwhite. key's device. By Sunday morning it was in such shape that we began to take heart. "If she don't get through she'll get back again, and that's what most of 'em don't do," growled Neighbor as he and Sankey showed the new ram to the engineers. They had taken the 566, Georgie Sin clair's engine, for one head and Burns' 497 for the other. .Behind these were Kennedy, with the 314, and Cameron, with the 296. The engines were set in pairs, headed each way and buckled up like ,pack mules. Over the pilots and stacks of the head engines rose the tremendous plows which were to tackle the toughest drifts ever record ed, before or since, on the West End. The ram was designed to work both ways. Under the coal each tender was loaded with pig iron. The beleaguered passengers on No. 1, sidetracked in the yards, watched the preparations Sankey was making to clear the line. Every amateur on the train had his camera snapping at the ram. The town, gathered in a single mob, looked silently on and listened to the frosty notes of the skyscrapers as they went through their preliminary maneuvers. Just as the final word was given by Sankey, in charge, the sun' burst through the fleecy clouds, and a wild cheer followed the ram out of the western yard. It was good luck to see the sun. aain. Little Neeta up on the hill must have seen them as they pulled out. Surely she heard thee choppy, ice bitten screech of the 566. -That was never forgotten, whether the service was special or reg ular. Besides, the head cab of the ram carried this time not only Ur .,r.gie Slnclair, but her father as wtll. San key could handle a slice, br 1:i wv-Il l a punch and rode on the lie1:1:rhto e where, it anywhere. the l,i h:::a ,, hovered. What he was n,t en:,.ti;, u. In the train se'vice we il .l !;!Ie-. , i' cause he was strl ger thlan any nlri' gency that ever t'ntufrt'olt him Bnucking snoow is prinilnipally brute force. There is little tco":xing. .Ins! west of the bluffs, like' c.ode signals between a fleet of cruisers, there was a volley of sharpl tooting, and in a min ute the four ponderous engines, two of them in the back motion, fires white and throats bursting, steamed wildly into the canyon. Six hundred feet from the first cut Sinclair's whistle signaled again. Burns and Cameron and Kennedy answered, and then, literally turning the menster ram loose against the dasuilng maun taln, the crews settled themselves for the shock. At such a moment there is nothing to be done. If anything goes wrong, eter nity is too close to. consider. There come a muffled drumming on the steam chests, a stagger and a terrific impact and then the recoil, like the stroke of a trip htimmer. The snow shoots into the airfltty feet, and the wlnd carries a cladM or seecy conat slon over-the ram, and out of the cut. The eabs-were buried hl white; antd- ei great steel trames or the engines sprung like knitting needles under the frightful blow. Pausing for hardly a breath, the sig naling again began, then the backing, up and up and up the line, and again ,the massive machines were hurled screaming into the cut. "You're getting there, Georgie!" ex claimed Sankey when the rolling and lurching had stopped. No one else could tell a thing about it, for it was snow and snow and snow, above and behind and ahead and beneath. Sin clair coughed the flakes out of his eyes and nose and mouth, like a baffled collie. He looked doubtful of the claim until the tnist had blown clear and the' quivering monsters were again recalled for a dash. Then it was plain that Sankey's Instinct was right. They were gaining. Again they went in, lifting a very avalanche over the stacks, packing the banks of the cut-with walls hard as Ice. ,Again as the drivers stuck they raced In a frenzy, and into the shriek of the wind went the unearthly scrape of the overloaded- safeties. Slowly and sullenly the machines were backed again. "She's doing the work, Georgie!" cried Sadkey. "For that kind of a cut she's as good as a rotary. Look everything over now while I- go back and see how the boys are standing it. Then we'll give her one more and give it the hardest kind." And they did give her one mpore, and another. Men at Santiago put up no stouter fight than they made that Sun day morning In the canyon of the Blackwood. Once and twice more they went in,, and the second time the bumping drummed more deeply. The drivers held, pushed, panted and gain ed against the white wall, heaved and stumbled ahead, and, with a yell from Sinclair and Sankey and the fireman, the double header shot her nose into the clear over the Blackwood gorge. As engine after engine flew past -the divided walls each cab took up the cry. It was the wildest shout that ever crowned victory. Through they went and halfway across the bridge before they could check their monster catapult. Then at a halt full they shot it back at the out. It worked as well one way as the other. "The thing is done," declared San key. Then they got Into position up the line for a final shoot to clean the eastern cut and to get the head for a dash across the bridge into the west end of the canyon, where lay another mountain of snow to split. "Look the machines over close, boys," said Sankey to the engineers. "If nothing's sprung we'll take a full head across the gorge--the bridge will carry anything-and buck the west but. Then after we get No. 1 through this afternoon Neighbor can get his baby cabs in here and keep 'em chas ing all night. But it's done snowing," he added, looking into the leaden sky. He had everything figured out for the master mechanic-the shrewd, kindly old man. There's no man on earth like a good Indian and, for that matter, none like a bad one. Sankey knew by a military instinct just what had to bedone and how to do it. If he bad lived he was to have been assist ant superintendent. That was the word which leaked from headquarters after he.got killed. And, with a volley of jokes between the cabs and a laughing and a yelling between toots, down went Sankey's double header again into the Black wood gorge. At the same moment, byan awful mis understanding of orders, down came the big rotary from the- West End with a dozen cars of coal behibd it. fle after mile it had wormed east to ward Sankey's ram, burrowed through the western cut of the Blackwood. crashed through the drift Sankey was alming for and then whirled out into the open, dead against him, at forty miles an hour. Each train, in order to make the grade and the blockade. w-as straining the cylinders. Through the swirling snow which half hid the bridge and swept between the rushing plows Sinclair saw them coming. He yelled. Sankey saw them a fraction of a second later, and, while Sinclair struggled with the throttle and the air, Sankey gave the alarin through the whistle to the poor fellows in the blind pockets behind. But the track was at the worst. Where there wa' no snow there were whiskers. Oil it self couldn't have been worse to .stop on. It wais the old and deadly peril of fighting blockades from both ends on a sangle triek. The great rams of t-eel and fire had:l *one their waer, ana, with their com mon enemy" overcome, they dashed at each other, frenaled, across the Black-. wood gorge. The fireman at the first- cry shot out the side. Sankey yelle .at Blnclair to |ump, but Georgie shook his head. He never would Jump. Without hesitat ing an Instant, Sankey caught him In his arms, tore him from the levers, planted a mighty foot and hurled Sin clair like a block of coal through the 1 gangway out into the gorge. The oth er cabs were already emptied, but the instant's delay in front cost Sankey's life. Before he could turn the rotary erashed into-the 588. They reared like mountain lions and pitched headlong into the gorge. Sankey went under them. He could have saved himself. tie chose to save Georgie. There wasn't time to do both. He had to choose, and of whom she needed most, of a Sthan an oldure and a alin thg ougne tI dohe gangwatl out into the gorge. and be chose Instinctively. Did he, maybe, think In that flash of Neeta and of whom she needed most, of a young, and a stalwart protector better than an old and a falling one? I do not know. I know only what he did. Every one who jumped got clear. Sinclair lit in twenty feet of snow, and they pulled him out with a rope. He wasn't scratched. Even the bridge was not badly strained. No. r pulled over it next day. Sankey was right there was no more snow, not enough to hide the dead engines on the rocks. The line was open. There never was a funeral in Mbc Cloud like Sankey's. George Sinclair and Neeta followed together, and of mourners there were as many as there were people. Every engine on the =di vision carried black for thirty days. His contrivance for fighting snow has never yet been beaten on the high line. It is perilous to go against a drift be hind it. Something has to give. But it gets there, as Sankey got a there, always, and in time of blockade t and desperation on the West End they still send out Sankey's double header, though Sankey-so the conductors tell 1 the children, traveling east or traveling west--Sankey isn't running any more. Buzay Man Versus Busy Man. Those who tell you they "always are rushed to death" usually acomplish the least, and largely because they are im aginative. The really busy man, who turns off an immense amount of work with the quiet and precision of a per fect machine, must have the Imagina tion to look ahead a day or a month or a year. At the'least, his thought is al ways a few seconds ahead of his ac tion; his head saves his heels; he Is not continually tripping over his own feet. But the buzzy man can never understand the busy man. Having no Imagination himself, he saves his own face by saying that the man who never fusses over his work has little to do. Let us hear no more about Imagina tion being impracticable. It Is one of the most practical things in the world. A due proportion of it used with judg ment "will from many a blunder free us and foolish notion." The only con dltion under which it may seem su perfluous is that of one who has some monotonous task to perform automatic ally day after day. Doubtless if one Is to be4n an automatic job forever the less imagination the better, but if he Is ever to get out of It the quicker he cultivates some imagination the sooner will he get out.--Chicago Tribune. His Lack of Modesty. "That man has absolutely no sense of shame." "I know It. When he was in college he allowed himself to be photographed In his sprinting suit." - Llppincott's Magazine. His Stories. Yeast-Who Is your wife's favorite author? Crlmsonbeak-I am. She sagys I make up some of the most wonderful stortesl she ever heard.-Yonkers Statesman. Aaeenat Phelosophy. "The man," said Epicurus solemuly, "who utilized the nutmeg had a grate mind."--Baltimore Amerlean. Sealing Wax. Sealing wax in the present form was frst noted in London in the middle of the sixteenth century. A sort of earth Was used by the ancient Egyptians in sealing papers and documents. The Egyptians placed such earth on the rnms of eattle, and upon It was stamp ed the seal of the priest. Thus were bsMatted the cattle to be used in the various sacrties.-- London Saturday haview. ST.
