Barstow’s Siiiing is it small station <>n the G. S. A Western railway, and lo cated out on the prairie at the edge of a bit of scrubby woods. The little village of BarsUnv is about a mile from the station, and tc reach il one has to take a rough road through the woods. The line at litis point is perfectly straight, ami reaches to the horizon in both di rrcctions. These facts are essential to a Lright understanding of the events that took place sit the station one night about a year ago. Old Sam Britton, station-master, sat rby the stove in the middle of the switch- I house idly looking at the dull red coals [in the ugly stove. His daughter Mary, ■ aged nineteen, sat hy the little telegraph | apparatus near the window that looked [ out down the line. By the aid of a lan- Itern she was readinga stray newspaper, f The Iron Trade Review—* strange paper * for a girl to read, but it belonged to a dear friend, and some singular pictures had inter ested her greatly. She was doing more. Site read and listened. Not a thirg stirred in the dull, bare, room save the restless sounder on her table. The in cessant clatter of tbo machine fell <>n her ear, and yet she heard it not. Elm City was talking to Oentreville, forty miles through the night, and every word was spelled on her sounder. Vet she heard it not, for her mind was alert to catch another sound. Her father had lot fall the paper he was reading. He could not read, for hitter disappoint ment kept his mind harassed and troubled. How long was this default of payment to the employes of the rail way company ‘.o continue? The last month’s wages had not been paid, and another month had nearly passed. The line needed repairing. There were two bad ties on this section, and one of tiro signals was broken. The track-men had complained that very day that new and belter tools were needed, and that more ballast was wanting. Suddenly, far-away on the edge of the sea-like horizon, arose a star. The young girls eyes were on the patter, and yet she saw ns rising. She looked out the curtainless window and watched the star grow bright, it did not seem to rise, but to grovs big with brightness. It is not for love to sit, and gaze. It must act. She rose, and in silence went to one of the great iron switch bars and stood with both hands clasped about the handle, and gazing down the line, where the star had become a flame. Then came a far-away sound through the night. Without hesitation Hie pulled the bar forward. Far down the track the switch moved in tiro dark, and a great green eye turned red. Up the line in me opposite direction, an other greeu star suddenly turned to a warning red. Samson Gilder sal on his high seat with one hand on the throttle-valve, gazing steadily ahead. A constellation 1 of green and yellow stars had sprung | up on his horizon. Jack Cinder, his fireman, on the other side of the engine, had given voice to the monster as it | panted along its iron way. Ah! one s:ar Hashed red. The engineer i blushed and smiled in the dark and pulled the throttle-valve. Then came a ' push and jar as the heavy freight-train ! rumbling behind pushed against the I engine. The motive power had ceased, i and the immense momentum of the j train drove the idle engine swiftly for-1 ward. The whistle spoke to the met) I behind, and they gladly pulled at the brakes, and the tram entered the siding. The head-light threw a lurid glare on : the switch-house, and by the light Sam- 1 son saw a young ghl standing by the track. the was dressed for rough j weather, and wore a red hood that was not lovely. Samson thought it was beautiful in the glow of the great lamp j and against the winter-night. It may ' nave been the peculiar effect of the light. It may have been love, for love has finer eyes than unloving mortals. They came into the switch-house to gether, she smiiing and Lanpy, he | pleased and gratified, yd w ith a shade ! of care upon his face. In bis hand be i held anew track-layer’s bar, a Ur such as may be used to draw spikes from ties. He spoke to Sam Britton pleasantly *hcut the weather, and then said. “ ThercV a bar for the vcctiou-mastcr.; I bought it myself. The company j seems to he too j>oor to give its men I proper tools —’’ "To say nothing of our wages," added the old man, roughly. *• O. father, why do you harp ou that ? The company has a great deal of prop erty. 1 will surely pay us our dues." The engineer placed the bar against the wall hy 'he door, and thou turned to Mary, tdi- led him away to her little desk by the window, and there they sat down together. Presently Jaek Cinder j and one or two of the train men came and sat down hy the dull red stove. The conversation among ttie men for the first few moments had a local tlavor, 1 and needs no mention. Then it branch ed to a more important theme —the ov-1 erdne wages. Kven the lovers discus-1 sed the matter, and after a few word* they slopped abruptly. Tears brimmed ! the girl’s eyts, and she turned away and | gazed out the w indow at the glow ing head-light. Then one of the brakinen said: ‘‘And the president is racing round the coun try m a draw ing-room ear. He’s com ! ing up the road to-night on a special, land every tiling ha* to give way to his I train." "I wish he might gel tumbled into the ! ditch," said a deep voice that startled i them all. ‘•On, Samson, how could yon say that?" “Because I'm mad. Hero we can’t —’’ He stopped, and the girl blushed scar let. “The president can make oxenr ! .-ions over the line and disarrange all the time-tables, and yet wo an two j months waiting for our pay. 1 think —" He stopped and looked toward the door: a nideons creature, half man, half i beast, stood unbidden before them all. A tramp, foot-sore, homeless, and hun gry, he had found the door unlatched, j j and had wandered in looking for shel ter. The station master permitted the man to come in and stand behind the stove to warm himself, for ho was nigh perishing with the cold, and then the conversation lapsed inti) whispers. Suddenly there came the sound of a j distant whistle. The station-master ! looked at the sw itch bars to see that the line was clear, and Samson ladder rose 'and said: “That’s William’s train. I’ll go out and wave him a friendly light as he passes,” The sound of the approaching freight train came nearer, and the engineer took the lantern from the desk and went out. The others fell into silence as the rumbling train crept past the door. The young girl stared at the great head-light in sorrowful silence, thinking, wishing, and hoping. Taking advantage of the noise, the tramp shuttled away toward the door. Just as ho reached it he looked hastily round the room, and then slyly picked up the track-layer’s bar and disappear ed. His presence had been a burden: he had happily taken himself nil’, and they paid no heed to Ins departure. A moment after the door opened and Samsoh Gilder entered. “The special is in sight boys. We must be oil." The men reluctantly went out to their train, and the lovers met to part at the door. Her eyes werf bright with ill suppressed tears. "It seems so long to wait —and all for n little money.” “I know it, dear, yet, when tne com pany do pay up, we shall have all the more.” Nearer and nearer came the great yellow star that had sprung up on the horizon, From far rune the long wait ing sound of the express whistle. The lovers heard it, and held each a tighter clasp. The tracks before the door be gan to “sing.” The monster came on in frightful fury. Sparks shot up in fountains from its stack. The ground quivered, the windows shook, with its tread. Ah! a despairing scream from the whistle. An earthquake. Someone rushed past the girl. Slit clasped the door for support, not know mg -what had happened. She looked ! out into the night, .stunned and terrified. There was nothing -nothing, save a vast cloud of dust, white and ghostly in the night, An! a gleam, a Hare of light. It shone through the curtain of dust as it drifted away before the wind. There were hurrying footsteps, shouts, cries for help, and groans. The dust disappeared, and the end of an over turned car stood out in the bright light. The flames shot up higher. The wreck grew in horrid proportions. Ah! it was on lire. It is a peculiar feature of American life that new and unexpected circum stances are always met and controlled hy a spirit of organization that creates out ol the men and materials at hand the mastery of events. In half an hour after the lirst crash, as the train left the metals, the frightened passengers were comfortably housed in the empty cars of the freight-train. A car-load of lum ber had been despoiled to make seats for the whole and beds for the injured, j The freight-engine on the siding was used to drag the wreck away from the j up line,and its tank,water and steam had | been used to pul out the lire. In an hour I the freight-engine, in charge of the ex- ' press people, started away will) it- j dreary load, the well in the forward ears,! the injured, on beds of hay robbed from the freight, in the next cars, the dead | behind. Darkness and silence fell on the loin ly way-station, and save where the black | wreck lifted its mangled hones against the sky, there was nothing to mark the disaster except the pale faces of the men who gathered around the stove in the ; switch-house. For a long time nothing was said. Their are times when speak ing seems impertinent. Events be came too big for words. Then one of the men spoke and said, "They did say it were the president; who were killed in the forward sleeper.' Mary Britton glanced at Samson Gil der. lie was silent and self-absorbed, ( and bis face gave no indication that he heeded this remark. At that moment the door opened and Jack Cinder came in. bringing in his hand, anew track layer's bar. He brought it to the light and held it before them all. “Do you sec that, boys " I found it under the smashed sleeper. It’s anew Par, and—’’ The men looked at the ' bar for a moment in apparent indiffer ence, and sad nothing. The keener j feminine mind sprang to iatutive con- 1 elusions. Her thoughts leaped from a terror to a defense. "It was the tramp. He stole the bar and wrecked the train." "Mehbe he did, and tnebhe he did.i’:. This 1 do know; Samson Hilder xvas a-wihing the president into the ditch. This is Ins bar, and lie xvas out on the line just before it happened." The coroner’s jury called to consider the death of Thomas Starmore and others, killed at Uarstow’s Siding on the night of the-olh of February, met at the switch-house and hoard the evi dence of the persons who were known to have been present at the time of the disaster. Kven the tramp had been captured. He xvas seen prowling in the woods near the lino, and had been caught by the section-master and his men. Every one at once said. “The tramp did it." Hut the tramp had in his hand another bar just like the bar found under the train. He admitted having stolen the bar. He had seen the disaster from the woods, and had then nm away lest he should be caught. After some time he had come back to find the bar he had dropped in the woods in his tlight. He had the bar xvith him when caught. He could prove all this, because tin bar xvas rusty from lying in the snow. The reporters of the Centreville pap ers xvho xvere present called Mary Bril toti to the tehxgraph that a message might he dispatched. One of them placed a paper before her “ A tramp has been found xvho admits having stolen the bar. but it is evident he did not use it. All the evidence goes to show that Hi# engineer wrecked the train out of spite against the presi dent.'’ These xvords Mary Briton sent off by wire to the whole Tinted States, while her lover sat near already in the shad ow of advancing calamity. The oper ators xvho read off these xvords in dis tant cities heard every word distinctly, little knowing the terrible Inal under which they xvere dispatched. Never in after-life did she forget that message. “Gentlemen,” said the coroner, this ease seems to warrant mein referring tne whole matter to the grand jury for further explanation." Weeks passed, and then the trial came on al the eenrt-lunise at Centre ville. Samson Uillder had been com mitted to answer a charge ofwillfully wrecking a nt’lroad train. Mary Britton lived years in these few xvoeks. She eonld not believe Samson had committed so great a wrong. Vet every thing xvas ngain-t him. Tiaek layers’ bars xvere abundant enough. He eonld easily have found one about the place, and xvith il have drawn the spikes from a rail. Her mind went backward and forward over all this a hundred times in search of something to prove him innocent. She still at tended to her duties at the station,daily sending and receiving messages. On morning, as she sal thinking bitterly of the sorrow that had invaded her life, her eyes fell upon an old ncxvspaper fallen under her desk. She picked it up and opened il. 7Vt, Iron 7 rtulr l\r new. She eagerly turned to the second page Ah! why had she forgotten those pictures? Strange black figures, etchings if imp, nature printed. Given this slight clew, iier mind leaped ton brave resolve. She would bring science to love’s rescue. How, she eonld not tell. She had a vague idea of xvhat might he done, ami, asking her father to at tend to the telegraph, she ran hastily out on the line and di vn the road to the village. Stopping at a certain house, she found a young girl who xvas a good operator, and at once hired her to take her place at the station. Before night she had taken every dol lar she had in the world from tin-sav ings bank, and xvas on her xvay to the city. The moving ears seemed to drag too slowly. Why had she lingered so long idle, and Samson in dangei? The day of the trial came on. At tin' trial all the testimony that we al ready know, and much more of less importance, hud been offered by the prosecution. The defense set up the previous good character of the prisoner, and that seemed about all that could he said. Mary Britton had givi n her testimony I oarly in the trial, and that seemed tin l I all that she could do. 81.n had more to say. hut was not ready to speak. All the morning she had sat in the crowded court room, watching the clock, and waiting and looking for sonic one, a strong and leave helper, Income to her assistance. At the last moment she spoke to the counsel, and asked for a slight delay. There might he yet other witnesses. The defense began to talk against time, and a messenger was sent to hasten the lagging aid. The knight arrived. A pale, tiiin faced young man in glasses appeared, and demanded to give his testimony. Behind him came a marvellous array— mi ii with strange tools, lanterns of sing ular construction, bars and mils of iron, and a nun her of gentlemen who seem* |cd to he prosperous merchants and manufacturers. There came also an old German Jew and a farmer from Harstow’s. The young man spoke to Mary Britton with the utmost deference, and she consulted with him for a mo ment, and then presented him to Ham son’s counsel. There was a slight murmur of stir ( prise at this demonstration, and then Samuel Mayer was duly sworn. He testified that he was an expert in met als. He had examined the bar fo md under the wreckid ear, and was prepar er 1 to prove that Harnson Gilder could not have used it in wrecking the train. With the permission of the court he would like to have the room darkened, that with the aid of a lantern he might project some nature-printed pictures of the iron used in making the liar. The prosecution objected. What sci entific jnglery was this? J'he old lan-1 tern dijdge familiar in cases of forgery? The court overruled the objection, and the young man produced some pieces of cloth, which his assistant* tjuickly spread over the windows till the room became quite dark. A gas jet was light ed, and in the dim light (liter men set up a screen and lime-light lantern as for lantern projections. In a wonder fully short time there appeared on the white screen a strange figure—-a cloud or blotch of blackness. Hamuel Mayer then testified that at the request of Miss Britton he nad. planed one s : de of ear.f. if the two ! ar , till a smooth snrtaco had horn obtained. A portion ol this surface on each bar had then noon etched with acid, and from this etching had boon obtained v .U'.ro’'>int*'t copies or prints in ink. Tim well-known method of etching gave prints showing the disposition ot the particles ot the metal, and serving to show its quality. These etchings and a vast number of others taken from bars and rods made by the different iron-makers of the country had been photographed for lantern projection, and, with the permission of the court, some of these would he exhibited to the jury. The projection now on the screen <vas from the bar purchased by Gilder and stolen by the tramp. Kv ry eye was fixed on the singular picture on the screen, and a murmur of applause tilled the room, Suddenly the picture was removed, and another t ok its place. It did not - require much attention to show that this represented an entirely different kind of metal. “This, gentlemen.” said the young man, "is a nature printed etching (rom the iron bar found under the ear. I have compared these two etchings w ith a groat number of etching* obtained in the same way from bars made by all the iron-men in the country, and I find this one corresponds exactly w ith etch ings of the Moorlow Iron CompanyV metal. My assistant will place a sam ple of the company's iron beside this." At once another picture sprang up beside the one on the screen. The two were exactly alike. Another w i:news took the stand the president of the Moorlow Iron Com nany. Ho testified to the taels of the experiments and to the results that had been obtained. Another witness was called the buyer of the railroad company. He testified that the company had never used the Moorlow Company’s iron. The bar Gilber had bought had been ob tained of K )ss. Ihmean A Cos,, Pitts burgh, from whom the raihoad obtained all its tools. Another etching was projected; then another appeared by its side, flic two were exactly alike. “The picture ,u the iiclit.” said Mayer, “is Koss, Ihino.ui A Co.’s iron. That on the left is the etching shown first, and obtained from the bar pur chased by t< liber.” The judge rapped smartly on his desk. This appl,m e could not be per mitted again. The day-light was jc admitled, and the pictures faded away. Photographs of the etching were hand ed to the jurors, and the various sam ples of iron from which the etching had been obtained were exhibited. Samson Gilder sal with face averted. How could he deserve such love? It was too divine a gift. Why had lie not known of her surpassing love for him, her mastery of mind and will that could accomplish such results, and all for him ? He did not deserve so great a blessing. Someone else was testifying. A farmer living id Harslow had passed a man on the road, just before the acci dent, xvho muttered to himself, " I’ll have my revenge, xvlioever may suf fer.” Abraham ,Saturn Is testified Unit he had bought the old junk and refuse from the wreck, and Hud found a coal much torn, and probably belonging to a passenger. In tlm coat xvas a pari of a lettei a threatening letter uddresseed to "John Morley." “ He xvas killed in the wreck,” said Mary Britton xvith Midden eagerness. “Silence! Let the witness proceed.” This letter threatened John Morley with death for some past injury, mid warned of some impending disaster, ll was signed, “ Fred Sinythe.” There xvas a sudden movement al the rear of the court, and every one turned to see xvhat it meant. A man xva pushing roughly out o( the seats as if eager to escape. " Hy sixty!” cried the farmer from Bars tow; " that’s tin Idler I sawjiist afore the smash." “ (t xvas a remarkable ease,” said the judge to his colleague, after the trial. “The woman must have been a person of extraordinary mind lo have planned tile scheme, and lo have xvon all those scientific people over lo her side. 1 understand she had not a cent in the world, and could pay them nothing. Women will do anything for love." Aiiollkt itiislon I’liilosoptii-r til barge. I'blltulclphlii Unllfiin. Ills name is Mr. A. I).

The building am l furnishing of a country home for the Governor of Bom bay cost $575,000. No wonder there’s a deficit in the revenue. History of ( lack*. The periods of the day were first measured by the Assyrians with water clocks.which according to eaily Persian authors, werx> in use in Xinevah, in tlie iv;gn of S.udanapahis. Phis clock was merely a brass vessel of cylindrical shape, holding several gallons of water. A hole xvas bored in one of tue sides, and it was calculated that the vessel would empty itself live or si\ times a day. fne water-clock, or clepsydra, contin ued to remain in itspiimnive condition for many centuries; and it was not un til the invention of the sun dial at Alex andria, 550 years before Christ, that it underwa nt any improvement. About that time, however, an Kgyptian, of Memphis, added a dial with a hand to the Clepsydra, fhe hand revolved on a pivot and communicated to a siring which was attached to a tloat, As ilio water leaked out, the lloat fell with it. and the tension of the string caused the hand to move around with slight, spasmodic jerks, something like those ol the sec ond hand on a watch of inferior make. When Pompey returned to Koine i after nis triumph ever the Milhridiles. lie brought with him, (rom the treas ures of the King of Pontna, a clepsydra, marking the hours and minutes oeeord- ; iug to tho method of horology in use in Homo, fhe cylinder and dial plates were of gold, and the hands studded with small rubies, each of the ciphers donating the hours was cut from a sin-' glo sappliin . The cylinder needed re replenishing only onee a day The monks of the order of St, Hein* diet, instituted m the yeavo-d. comput ed the time by the number of prayers : they eonld say, audit was hence that 1 the custom ol w earing chaplets or heads i arose. The task assigned to each monk i was 10 recite as many "paters" and "axes ' as there were beads on his ; string, and as the orthodox number on 1 a chaplet was supposed to he then, as - is now, thirty-three that is one fori leach yen of our Savon's life then' was work fora full hour and a half, il ; conscientiously performed. The (anions Caliph of Itagdad, Ha romi Al Uasehid, restored the old water clock to Kurope in the year SO7, sent a magnificent clepsydra as token of friendship to Charlemagne; hut the pre scut was looked upon as a thing to he rather admired than copied, for we find no mention of any water-clocks ol i French make until the reign of Philip, j contemporary of William the eompiet 1 or. The first real clock was made in Franco in the year KI7K The maker was one Mi nn de Vie, an Arab, who had been converted to Christianity. This clock was a monster machine, weighing diHf pounds. Ii was moved by weights, was possessed of a horizon tal lex er, and provided xvith a bell to toll the time, fne maker received a pension of 100 erowiu ol gold for life and xvn.s ennobled.
