Watching au Impend tut CollUlmi of Train«

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
•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
" '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

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.
