Watching au Impend tut CollUlmi of Train« Sm Not Very Fuuny Hi »oc Wioo*lit by a Stubborn Stork Shipper A DMpnnit« Wonmii at ihr Throttle. John C. Taylor, for many years a locomo tive engineer on tbe roads of tbe middle west, is full of rvmintarenres as an egg is of meat. "Ever on a wrecked train f" he asked. "Not Then you don't know what you mi.wd. But the man who rides along comfortably till the shock comes is a good deal better off than if he saw it some minutes ahead anil cooldii't get away. One thne 1 waa run ning the fast exprem on the Pittsburg road, and pulled into Wanatah, 1ml., just after dark with eight loaded cant. It was Friday night while the exposition was running here in Chicago, und every car wus crowded. There was a freight on tha New Albany road, which (torsos the Pittsburg there, and it was due to puss some ten minutes ahead of tny time. I conldu't see it and the target light* gave me the track, «y I pulled out and was almost to the crowing when I saw the roan at the target ruu np the Albany track swinging a red lantern like mad. Just then 1 saw that freight coming down grade at full tilt, and whistling for brakes I let on all the steam 1 bad, but blest if my drive wheels didn't slip and just go whirling around there like taps. The little headway I had gathered pushed us forward, and the engine was just on the crossing. If the wheels would have taken bold I could have cleared it before the freight came, but I saw it was no use. They would strike us sure. So 1 had my choice: 1 could pull the engine across and let them hit tbacoachm, or 1 could stop where I was and let tbe engine take It. " 'Human life before dollars,' I said to my fireman, and reversed the engine. Hbe took hold, st rangely enough, und stopped the train stock still. I let on a little more steam ami tried to back, but thev flew again, and my partner and 1 jumped, just In time to see that blundering freight crash Into my Baldwin engine. They made an awful wreck. The whole freight train piled up along the track and smashed half the cars. Tho two engines was all drove together and ruined, but we got the track clour, and a new engine came down from Valparaiso and pulled my train into Chicago. But, air, not half the passeii gers on my train knew there wus a wreck. They were comfortable, and their cars Is-ing nearly still when the shock («une, they were not jolted a bit. The compauy cussed a little when I told them 1 lost the engine to save the passengers, hut I guess they would rather have it that way. Knits for damages, when a lot of people are killed, ore always expeu sive, But the strain of tbose few minutes on me, when 1 knew my train must lie struck, and had to choose where, w as enough to mal,« my black "bat turn gray. "1 was running u through freight on th* Alton road one time und fetching u train loud of cattle up from Ht. Is mis. It was along about morning, aud just this side of Lincoln as wn rounded u curve I saw n little In nige on lire. It was over a drv, shallow creek bod and wasn't over twenty feet wide. 1 couldn't possibly stop, and 1 believed the fire had not yet weakened it much, so I put on a full head and let her go. About live cart back from the engine was tlie man that own ed most of tho cattle, sod he saw the lire al most as soon us 1 did. lie dnticed and yelks» and swung his arms, but 1 let him go am] watched the bridge. J ust as the pik pushed into the smoke something broke loo.. behind, and I'll be shot If that engine of mine didn't jump two feet In the air. Hhe earn« down all right and just (lew like a bullet. 1 shut off the steam and looked around. There was only two cars with me. That infernal old nutu had taken the train iu his own hands and cliiutied down to the bumpers when ho saw 1 was going to take the bridge; he uncoupled the third cur and tlie rest of the train, climbed up again and set tho forward brake till he just about split it Then he ran to tbe next, and his hired man helped him. His cars came on, shoving that first one along like a pair of skates till it stood right on the bridge. There it stopped, and when all the slack was taken up the weight of twenty cars of cattle jusl shoved the bead of bis train Into the creek tied, tipped seven over on their sides and de railed the rest. 1 was so uuul I could bavy hammered him. T he bridge would have held the cars running, but when the dead weight rested on it, with all that train banging uj behind, it went down. We had to open th* oars and let nearly two hundred head of fai Kansas steers out on the prairie, and it tool a wrecking train four days to fix up Uu bridge and track and take the rubbish away And then that jay hawker bad tlie nerve to sue tbe comiiaiiy for damages. Get itl Well, ua "I ran across a woman engineer once. I lev father used to own a big sawmill, and, being an engineer himself, he taught the trade to kis daughter. She was a little wild, 1 guess, am» ran away from home to take an engine on little narrow gauge track in the Arkansas woods, dressing like a man and wearing bet hair short. Then the got a freight train os the Iron Mountain road from Foplar Bluff Hi. Louis. She held that uutil she went sleep one night and ran plump into a freight on a crossing. Then she skipped, and turned up afterward ou tbe 'Q' road at tbe time the big strike. I knew her father well, and be often asked me if I saw her. Finally on« morning when 1 was pulling out of Chicago on a Rock Island train I saw her backing *Q' engine down to the yards. I called her by name, and when 1 started out next morn ing she came to my cab, got on aud rode out be ex a ways. •T never saw her again till just before quit the rood. She came to me at Council Bluffs one night and wanted to ride to Chi cago. She had no money and was discour aged, and I let her ride, although it was against tlie rules. Hhe sat before me and my engine half the night. Bhe seemed to watching for something, and didn't talk much. At last, just before midnight, while we were passing through a stretch of woods, she threw over tbe lever, set the air brakes, •ml fetched the train up with a bump iuside of a hundred yards. " 'What's the matterP I asked. "'Manon the track; don't you see him she said, and jumped to tbe ground. There was a man on the track, but I hadn't him before, and didn't believe she saw when sbe stopped. Just then 1 heard a fired, and looking back saw a group of lows trying to smash in tbe side door of express car. " 'Go ahead if you can, John,' yelled conductor. 'Go ahead, for God's sake,' from the express messenger, and 1 let on steam ogam. The man who bud been on the rails was gone. We guthered way rapidly and the fellows who had S , un ding the door tried to get on the ut it« the train went faster they jumped the ground and escaped. The woman is with » gang of train robbers, and is doin good work for them. I shouldn't wonder she made her scheme work lome night her pals will get a big haul. But they take anything out of my train, and if I see her again, I'll send her where she'll lota of time to be despoudeut, and where wish she never saw a steam gauge.''—Chicago Herald. dis und At x A F.

He had scarcely dropped into tbe seat before she gave him a sweet smile and inquired if he would please do her a great favor. "Ah! with all the pleasure in the world," he made haste to reply.

The Congo Hiver of Today. From au article under the above title in The Century, by one of Stanley's former officers, we quote the following: On the Congo there uro no beasts of burden, there existing merely a manual transport, the porters being the natives of the Bakongo tribe, inhabiting tbe cataract regions. In physique these men are slight anil only poorly developed; but tho fact of their carrying on their head from sixty to one hundred pounds weight twenty miles a day for sometimes six consecutive (lays, their only food being each day a little manioc root, au ear or two maize or a handful of ]>eaiiuts, pronounces them at once as men of singularly sound stamina. Small boys of eight aud nine years old are frequently enough met corryiug loads of twenty-five pounds weight. Throughout the cataract region the general accepted money currency is Manchester cot ton cloth made up iuto pieces of six yards each. The European cost of the cloth paid to these natives for transporting a load Stanley Pool from Mutadi, including rations, amounts at the present day to f5 for a load of sixty-five pounds. Five years ago the cost was ouly one-third of this amount, but it increased on account of the opposition of various trading houses that have established stations at Stanley Pool IJpr the ivury trade on the up|>er river. 1 1m 7 fel the the the lieou to in ; i ! and ever have she'll The Toothpick Nuisance.
