It was when we were up In central
Wisconsin double tracking a piece of
railroad that the accident here related
occurred. The accldeut was Kirby's
marriage. We had a long stretch of
line to be double tracked that year,
with considerable altering of the orig
inal grrj'Jlos and curves, making neces
sary nl'jnost half a mile of very heavy
rock cut and a long and high fill across
a valley on the new alignment. Our
construction ofiiee, warehouse and re
pair shops were at Antioeh, a central
point for all of the work. We estab
lished the office in a residence which
we had rented for the purpose. We
lived up stairs and had a negro cook
to prepare our meals and look to our
comfort after business hours.
Ivirby and Chapin, riggers by trade,
ran two pile drivers that were employ
ed in building a light and temporary
trestle across the valley for the dump
cars that would be used In building up
this high "fill" or embankment when
we began making the accompanying
cut In the neighboring hill. This was
some 10 or 12 miles down the road
from Antioch. Ivirby and Chapiu aud
the pile driver engineers, the time
keeper and some of the railroad's en
gineering help boarded and lodged at a
small country hotel near the "fill" that
was kept in a style commensurate with
his rates by one Conrad. We had near
ly a thousand men on that work, all in
camps distributed along the line of the
It happened this way:
Ivirby had been ordered down to tho
site of the rock cutting to erect a der
rick, and to do this he would have to
get up very early in the morning and
drive to Antioch, at which point he
would board a construction train going
down the line with men and materials.
He made his preparations the night be
fore, grumbling all the while at his 111
luck at having to leave his warm bed
on a dark, cold and probably wet De
cember morning, ordered his rig for
4:30 and crept beneath his blankets be
fore the other boarders had ceased
tlielr usual nightly hilarity In the rooms
Chapin was among the last to turn
In. Chapin is a sound sleeper under
ordinary circumstances, but the night
was very cold, no fire was in his room,
and the only means of heating was a
smoke pipe from the stove in the sa
loon below, which passed up through
his sleeping chamber. That gave off
little or no warmth when the fire burn
ed low. Chapin awoke in the middle
•?f the night, and, the cold preventing
him from getting to sleep again, he
jumped out of bed with the intention
of finding additional covering. The
proprietor was of a frugal nature, be
lieving not in the luxuries of this life,
and provided no fleecy blankets ready
at the foot of the bed for use in an
emergency. In truth, it was very much
in this hotel as in most others encoun
tered on contract work when away
from cities, a case of the best man get
ting the available comforts, or the food
on the table, for that matter, aud the
rest getting what they could.
»So Chapin, not finding in his room
what he sought for, sallied out into the
hall aud tried the doors of the rooms
on that floor. All were locked, with
the exception of the last one at the end
of the hall, which was Kirby's. This
he opened and stepped in. lie groped
his way to the bed and attempted to
arouse the sleeper and interest him in
the search for warmth, thinking that
possibly Ivirby might have an extra
blanket on his bed or in his room.
Ivirby!" he said. There was no
"Ivirby, got any blankets?"
The sleeper snored on, blissfully un
conscious of the other main's dilemma
"Say, you, let me have a blanket,"
continued Chapin.
Kirby did not move. Chapin did ao
ho would have been done by.
"Well, then," he said, "I will take
them." And, gathering up a handful
of blankets, he remorselessly jerked
the covering from Kirby and rushed
from the room. He fled down the hall
to his own room, but when he got to
the door he heard Kirby coming after
him, so he continued on up the stairs
to the attic floor above. Kirby follow
ed, muttering curses in his half awake
condition. Chapin tried the door he
came to at the top of the stairs. It
opened, and he stepped through, clos
ing it after him, all but a crack,
through which he heard the irate and
shivering Kirby come up the stairs,
three at a time, and pass the door. "A
dirty trick!" he was muttering. "I'll
punch Chapin's head for him when I
get him!" He ran to the end of the
third floor hall and down the front
stairs in pursuit of Chapin, but that
worthy well knew It would be useless
to go back to his room to enjoy his ill
gotten spoil so he made himself com
fortable in the unused bed of the room
he was in.
Ivirby, not finding Chapin in the Iat
ter's room and not hearing him, dou
bled back up the front stairway silent
ly and listening intently to catch a
sound of his pirating coemployee, but
he heard nothing. Finally he gave up
the search and tumbled into bed again,
getting up once or twice to pay a visit
to Chapin's room. But the night was
too cold for sleep with only summer
covering so, under the Impression that
the night was well spent and that it
was nearly time to go to Antiuch any
way, he decided to get up and dress
and wait for his rig. Moving around
with his clothes on was preferable to
trying to light the cold in. bed. lie was
about through with his toilet when he
heard the sound of wheels and the loud
whoa of a driver on the road below.
He thought it was his conveyance
ready for him, and, hun'iedly complet

ETHER Is a love

I have never been able to decide as to
Hs character in that respect.
Kirby is married, and I will make the
assertion with the confidence of one
who knows that a man who is em
ployed by any of the big contractors.
Jumping from one place to another six
mpnths or a year here and then off to
some otlfur part of the country, per
haps a couple of thousand miles away,
for another six months or a year and
mixing up daily with the class of
which a good part of a contractor's
force is composed and spending his pay
every pay night, as the majority do,
has no right to have a woman tied to
him. It is far from fair to the woman.
It Is cruel. It Is the1 one blight on
Kirby's upright and honorable though
somewhat adventurous career.
Hfyt' ~J,
colli, srin'tcficrt up his bundle ami ran
down the stairs.
There was a light in what was called
the office, and as he passed he heard
through the half opened door some one
talking to the proprietor. He did not,
however, loo.* in, but stepped out upou
the road. The night was miserably
cold and raw. A drizzling rain was
falling. In the darkness he made out
the shadow of a two horse, double seat
ed, covered spring wagou. A gruit
voice from the front seat said !o him
as he appeared: "You'd better hurry up
there. We haven't much time to throw
•All right, cap'n I'm here," said Kir
by, hastily climbing up to the rear seat.
The driver started his team immediate
ly. Ivirby was about to take his sent
when he noticed another person on tho
rear seat whom he had not seen before
owing to the complete shadow, the cur
tains at the side and rear being down.
When he made out the figure to be that
of a woman, he hesitated a moment
and had a mind to take a seat with the
driver, but they were already started,
so he took his place beside the other
They had not got more than well in
to the road when the clatter of swiftly
moving wheels In their rear was borne
to them, and apparently the occupant
of the other vehicle was In as much
haste as they were. Their driver piled
the whip to his horses, and they plung
ed along the rond at a furious pace.
Ivlrby's fellow passenger put her head
out of the side and looked back, though
she could have seen nothing ten feet
away iu that pitchy blackness. If she
did not 8e»», she must, however, have
heard that which gave her alarm, for
she uttered a frightened cry, turned
to Ivirby and threw herself on him,
putting her arms around his neck nnd
bursting out oring and sobbing with
her head on his shoulder.
Now. my friend Ivirby Smith Hus
ton, being a Kenluckian, a man of the
world and hnvjjig figured In many ad
ventures In which the other sex was a
party, was not of that kind that is eas
ily rattled by sudden and surprising de
velopments, but this hysterical explo
sion of his fellow traveler, coming so
unexpectedly, dumfounded hlin for a
minute. No man Is going to hold bis
nerve when a strange and of course
beautiful lady throws herself at him in
the dark, it being an iufrequent occur
rence with most of us, but Kirby's ear
ly training stood him in hand at this
moment, and after the shock was over
he gracefully and chivalrously began
to soothe nnd quiet her and htlp her to
bear up In her bereavement, whatever
the cause might be.
"There, there!" he said between jolts
of the wagon. "Don't cry. It'll come
out all right. What's the matter? Tell
me that's a good girl."
She crept closer to him, as though
wanting protection, and he put his arm
around her to support her.
"Oh, I'm afraid!" she said from
where her head was resting on his
"Afraid of what? Fear nothing. I
am with you," said Kirby in a face
tiously grandiloquent way.
"Oh, I know! Iiut if he should catch
us!" she said.
"Catch us!" said Kirby. "He never
will. Hurry up, there!" ho yelled to
the driver. "Lay It to 'em!'
"You don't know him as I do," she
said between sobs.
"That's no doubt true," Kirby ac
"He's terrible when he's mad."
"Is he? Then we mas* have some
fun, for," said he under his breath,
"from what I can see and what I can
guess, he must be pretty mad uow."
The other wagou could not be heard
above the noise oi their own progress,
but their driver feared uot but what It
was continuing iu pursuit, for he kept
on lashing his animals.
"Do you think we'll succeed?" she
said after a pause.
"Sure, easy," said Kirby, though noi
in the least surmising what it was they
were to be successful In, only intent on
quieting his strange companion. An
other pause. Then she said suddenly:
"You won't desert me?"
"Certainly not," said Kirby.
"Promise." she said.
"I promise," said Kirby.
"Kiss me," she whispered, turnln?
her face up to his. Although taken
aback, it was not In him to refuse. He
complied very promptly, then fumbled
in his pocket for a match, struck it,
and what he saw of her features, half
hid in the folds of his overcoat, must
have been very pleasing, for he kissed
her again. I will say this—that she
was pretty when this occurred, four
years ago.
"I'm happy uow," she said.
"Are you?"
"Yes. I've got jou. Oh, but if he
catches us he'll shoot! You won't let
hlin shoot, will you?"
"Kh—no, not if I can help it," said
"He's awfully hut tempered
"He must be."
"It'o cruel to leave him this way,
"Why, papa," 6he said.
"Oh. yes, yes! He doesn't want to
be left, does he?"
"Aud he's been so good to me," she
continued. "I wonder If you'll be good
tome. Will you?"
"See if I don't," said Ivirby.
"Kirby, my boy," he said to himself,
"what have you got mixed up in this
Ume? This'll be something for Chapin
"Always?" she repeated.
"Sure, always. You can bet on me.'
"I believe you." she said. "Do you
know I've been a little afraid of you
until now. but now you seem so dif
ferent. I feel as if I can trust you
"That's {.'.trod." he said.
"Yes, you've changed, lint It's the
danger has made you strong and fear
less, isn't It 7"
"Danger? Is there much danger?"
said Ivirby.
"If lie Khoul .1 overtake us," she said.
"Is he a big man?" said Kirby, en
deavoring to measure the probability
of an encounter and judge of his own
"Big man?" she queried.
"Yes. Is he haudy?"
"Why, who?"
"I'apa," he said.
"Why, you know. You saw him once.
Don't you remember? He's not so very
strong, you know, but he'll shoot."
"Oh!" said Kirby. lie would rather
prolong the situation as it was and was
satisfied with guessing at many tilings
rather than risk the danger of a change,
with its probable revelations, by too
close questioning.
And all the while.they were pouuding
along steadily and without pause into
the black unknown ahead of them, the
rain and wind beating In their faces,
that conversation was difficult unless
the speakers were close together, as
were the two passengers, with mouth
to ear. The driver sat bent forward,
peering ahead, with cap drawn down
and coat collar crouiul his ears, con
tinually urging on big, horses. Whet
The pursuer did not seem to gain on
them, but neither did he lag far be
hind. On these occasions renewed ter
ror would seize the girl, she would
cling closer to her protector, and Ivir
by, as in duty bound, continued his ef
forts to soothe her. In this he suc
ceeded well, for I must say he is very
accomplished In a knowledge of the
ways of femininity. I have knowu
Kirby along time, and of his escapades
before and after his marriage have per
sonal cognizance of many, and have
heard from good authority (Chapiu) of
more, aud have always been surprised
at his faculty for winning the confi
dence—and. yes, the devotion—of tho
fair sex.
It began to get lighter as they sped
on. The day was beginning. Objects
along the road and lu tho wagon be
cause discernible, though back between
the curtains ou the rear seat, where
sat the bewildered and puzzled though
outwardly serene Ivirby and the anx
ious girl. It was as dark as ever. Puz
zled he was surely, but I doubt if in all
this time he gave a thought to auy
serious consequeuces that might arise.
He did not understand the situation
further than that a woman was with
With the Ugfit of a match he saw her
him in Conrad's rig, presumably going
to Antioch, like himself, aud her fa
ther, for some reason as yet unknown
to him, was in pursuit. And the driv
er, at first anxiously hurried that he
might not arrive in Antioch too late
for Kirby's purpose, was now earnestly
urging forward because of the solicita
tions of both of his passengers. That
was Ivirby's surmisal of the wherefore
of matter?, and beyond tkat it was not
consistent with his reckless aud happy
go lucky nature to care.
At length he leaned forward toward
the driver, and his features bc-caiur
visible iu the half light that prevailed.
He shouted, "What time does that *p
construction leave Antioch V"
"Six fifteen," said the driver.
"Do you think we'll make it?" said
"Make It!" was the surprised ejacu
lation as the driver half turned his
head. "I should say so. We'll make it
and an hour"—
The girl, who had sat upright when
Ivirby changed his position, fixed a
startled gaze on him, caught hls'shoul
der and turned him toward her and
then screamed. The driver uttered an
exclamation that was equivalent In
man to a woman's scream.
"Who are you?" said the girl.
"Where in blazes did you come from?"
said the driver.
"Oh, oh, what shall I do?" said the
The driver pulled up his horses with
a jerk. "Say, old man." said Kirby, "I
don't know what this game is or how
it's going to come out, but the tiling
for you to do Is to keep your plugs
moving just about as fast as they have
been doing. You hear me? I'll bent
you over the head if you don't!" The
threat was effective.
"Who are you?" the girl continued^
asking in frightened tones. She drew
to the far end of tho seat, and fear of
her father was forgotten in the sur
prise of this unexpected discovery.
"Who are you?" she repeated.
"My name's Huston," said Ivirby.
"Where's Shelby?"
"Shelby? Shelby? What Shelby?"
"Shelby Martin," she said.
"I don't know any Shelby Martin,"
said Kirby.
"Wasn't he in tho hotel?" she asked.
"Didu't see him," said Ivirby.
"Was it you come out of ConraiVs
and got in here?" asked the driver.
"I guess it must have been," said
"Well, whore's Shelby?" said the girl
"Madam," said Kirby severely, "I
didn't see Shelby, wouldn't know him
if I saw him and don't care much if I
ever see him or not."
"Ho went into Conrad's," she said.
"Maybe," said Kirby. "Perhaps he's
there yet."
"Oh, dear, what shall I do?" exclaim
ed tho girl. "I don't know you. Driver,
stop. Let me out. I want to get out."
"Papa's back of us," suggested Kirby.
"Oh, what shall I do?"
"Say," said tho driver suddenly,
"how'd you come to get In this rig?"
"Didn't you tell me to?" said Kirby.
"I hired this rig last uight from Con
rad for the G:15 train. I guess I've got
a right."
"Six fifteen train! No, you didn't.
Say, this ain't Conrad's rig. I ain't
making uo 0:15 train."
"Look here, cap'n," said Ivirby, "put
me next What's the game anyhow?"
"Why," said the driver, "she's run
ning away with—with the other fellow
that weut into Conrad's."
"Oh!" said Kirby, the amusing side
of the affair dawning on him. "Looks
to me like she's running away from
him. Where'd you come from
"From eight miles the other side of
Conrad's," said the driver.
"You going to Antioch?"
"We were going that way, but It de
pended ou the old man—or on vou now.
I cucss." said the driver.
