Had Bad Fire.
Kenmare, N. D.. Nov. 5—Start
ing Monday noon at 1:30 at Van
ville, a small and what appeared
to be an insignificant blaze, fanned
by a terrific wind developed into a
raging sea of flames that was only
subdued Wednesday by the dying
down of the wind and the heroic
and courageous action of the citi
zens and farmers living within the
threatened territory. The force
of the flames was spent at Blais
dell, but before being brought un
^control a territory thirty-five
miles wide had been swept.
Nine automobiles filled with
volunteer fire fighters left Ken
mare the moment the seriousness
of the situation was realized. This
party was later reinforced by
Urge parties from Kensaton and
Niobe. People returning from
the scene of the effected territory
sty that at least thirty homestead-
ers lost their all and that the es
cape from death in many instan
ces was marvelous. The flames
spread rapidly and the fire fight
ers were compelled to use heroic
means to keep down the loss of
raal property. Peter Olson, a
firmer living eighteen miles, south
ist of Kenmare, is said to have
lost five horses, all of his build
ings, including house, barn and
granary and a large crop of grain.
Those having the ground already
broken were fortunate in having
the flames run around their
At one place it is said that over
oae hundred men were engaged in
ombating the flames and people
fljeked into the effected territory
from everywhere to assist in the
battle. Considerable back plow
ig was employed to cut off the
fire from certain sections and this
'suited in the saving of much
actual property in the way of
uses, barns and granaries.
Those who were most active in
ie flame-swept territory say that
providing the wind had not sud
denly changed its course and
aded towards the Great North
tracks the loss would have
proven many times over what it
will actually figure. Owing to
tie meagerness of reports the act
il'loss will not be known for

Smoky Sant had been drinking that
afternoon, and was, consequently, in
an unusually Jovial mood. Just be
yond Culver's Jump, as his big Mogul
engine came puffing up the steep
grade toward the mountain summit,
the loaded cars of coke clanking be
hind it, he leaned out of the cab and
waved a salute to the sunbonneted fig
ure beside the track. She might have
been old and ugly—it was nothing
more than the glow1 imparted by the
whisky which prompted the greeting
but when the sunbonnet fell back and
a pair of brown eyes laughed up at
him, while two pretty hands held out
a can of buttermilk, inviting him In
coquettish pantomime to drink, a
deeper emotion impelled him to stop
his engine. He leaped down and
stepped back to the girl, half expect
ing to see her run. She stood her
"Thirsty?" she asked. "This here's
nothin' but buttermilk."
He took a long gulp from the drip
ping dipper she held out to him.
"It's mighty good," he said as he
wiped his mouth with the back of his
hand, "but I didn't stop my train for
buttermilk. I expected I'd git a pas
senger. Ever been up to the mine?"
She shook her head.
"Come ahead, it's a bully ride!"
She hung back.
"I got a lot o' things to do up
home," she said.
"Got to cook yer old man's supper,
"Ain't got no old man—yet." And
"Got somebody in mind?"
"Not you, anyway!"

his way to and from the mines, and

two train-loads of coke were brought
by him to the greedy mouths up there
at the summit. Then followed the
risky descent over a track which
wound in and out, down the mountain
aide, and in the course of its 12 miles
dropped 2,000 feet—a trip never dull,
and now made ever more exciting for
Smoky Sant by tne possibility that at
one point of the road he would find
Jen waiting for him.
Meanwhile the silence of Sant'a
"old woman" in New York continued
unbroken—a silence that had been
responsible for Smoky Sant's taciturn
ity. She had been proud of her hus
band when she gave up teaching in
the city school and started out in life
with Sant, then a promising young en
gineer entrusted with the Big Flyer.
They were happy and prosperous
when the baby came, and the proud
father fairly worshiped the little chap
who sat CFowlng on his shoulders.
In the course of an unusually rig
orous winter Sant succumbed to the
grip, and recovered from it a weak
ened man. It was then that he be
gan to indulge in an occasional drink
to brace his nerves. The habit had
grown and presently he was found
unreliable then the company dis
missed him from his post on the Big
Slow to relinquish a man once so
trustworthy, they tried him in less
responsible positions. But Sant was
now too discouraged to pull up, and
gradually fell lower In the company's
forces until he was finally dismissed.
He fell into debt, the little house in
the suburbs slipped away from him,
and at last, to escape vagrancy, his
wife went back to her mother, taking
the boy with her. Their door was
closed against Sant. He would have
gone utterly to the dogs had not the
Brotherhood of Engineers secured for
him this position on the little moun
tain railroad, which required a cer
tain desperation for Its successful en
gineering. Sant had kept it several
months without mishap, and the min
ing company was beginning to feel
One morning, early in November,
he found Jen waiting for him on his
down-trip, looking like a picture in
the clear, frosty air, and with a be
lated spray of golden-rod fastened at

"Don't be afraid, little woman. You
will never be sorry—I'll see to that.
I'll stick by you an' work for you like
a nigger. Is it all right?"
There was no doubt in her mind
that he meant honorable marriage,
and she looked up with shy but un
mistakable acquiescence,, and then put
her head on h*s oily shoulder.
By degrees, however. It dawned
up on her that all was not well with
her mating. She disliked Sant's In
sistence upon the secrecy of their at
tachment. But this-grew Insignificant
in the presence of a graver trouble.
An elopement was what Sant began
to plan. On her part, she longed for
a local wedding with all the neigh
bors present and the circuit-rider on
hand to perform the ceremony, which
was to be followed by supper and a
dance. For weeks she pleaded for
this, the realization of many day
dreams, but Sant was firm in his re
fusal. By clumsy innuendoes he tried
to point her to the true state of af
fairs but his was an awkward mind
with a limited range of expression,
and hers was an honest little soul
unschooled and unsuspecting.
It was a dreary November day
when he picked Jen up on his way
to the mines and gave his consent to
the plans for the wedding. Her joy at
this welcome news brightened the
dull day for him, and as they waited
for the loading at the summit they
sat by the siding and discussed the
arrangements for the festivities with
a light-heartedness that had not been
theirs of late. She watchpd him as
he oiled the Streak.
Presently they started down with
the 12 empty freight-cars. The flur
ry of snow had increased and now fell
in big, damp flakes, which melted as
they reached the ground. Wet and
shiny in the late afternoon light, the
winding rails stretched before them.
The train slipped along with a speed
that made Sant uneady. He glanced
back and noticed with some relief
that the men were busy tightening
"Pete," he called above the thunder
of the train, "go back an' help 'em.
Put the brakes down hard!"
There was a note in the command
which caused Jen to glance up quick
ly. Something she read in his set
face confirmed her fear. She saw the
darkness and the storm swallow the
great changes that have taken place. The present eDd of main street was then "way out inthe country." Pious Hill was a horse pasture

fireman as he clambered back over
the low coal-cars.
"What's the matter?" she cried.
"It's all right, little woman," an
swered Sant, his hand on the levers,
his eye scanning the track ahead.
He turned to the engine again and,
cutting off the steam, applied the air
brakes. For a moment they could not
realize the truth. Then it broke upon
them. The wheels were sliding on the
Bllppery rails. He could not stop the
Jen's voice reached him.
"Ain't there no way to slack up?"
"Yes, if we had Pete. But I can't
make him hear."
"What d'ye want him for?"
"To poke the sand-box out there. It
must be clogged up!"
"Will that save us?"
"Who cares?" she cried. "Let's go
smashin' down to Kingdom Come to
gether. I ain't been sure o' you some
how. But this way I am sure!"
She clung to him where he stood
peering out through the window at
the quivering disk which the head
light threw before them. Blurred, in
distinct things came flying toward
them. Their brains danced with the
mad swing of the engine.
Pictures flashed through Sant's
mind. He saw the long tangent be

and iron of the last wreck near the
track. He saw himself crushed be
neath It. And off In New York he
