Some lessons learned in a Snow Storm. There Is no place In ail the worlu better fitted to study human nature than on a railroad train, and no time more auspicious than on Christmas night or the night after. I was re turning from the light and cheer of a Christmas reunion. It was my plan to board a train leaving Springfield at 5.10 p. m., for New York. But realizing the severity of the storm, which was like a real blizzard in the Massachusetts city, had gone to the station three-quarters of an hour ahead of time. The great station and yard was full of belated trains. Even as I sped up the walk, a train of 14 loaded passengers cars came limping in from Boston. ' On the north side of the station, where the Boston & Maine northbound trains usually stood, I found a snow-covered train, which was scheduled to leave Spring field for New York at 2.20 p. m., but which was two and one-half hours late as it was delivered by the B. & A., people to the New Haven road. Here was an opportunity of reach ing Bridgeport an hour ahead of time and I was not slow in getting aboard. It was with difficulty that I obtained a seat. People by the hundred were homeward bound. It was a good natured crowd. Although nearly three hours behind time, I never heard a "kick." People seemed per meated with the Christmas spirit, thankful to be out of the reach of the furious blizzard which raged outside. It was about 10 minutes to five when our train slowly steamed out of the Springfield yard for New York. Tired of reading, I fell to studying my fellow passengers with some in terest. At Berlin, a bright, active, smoothly shaven man became my seatmate. He confided to me that he had left his wife behind for a week's visit, while he went back to his work and his home in the Harlem district to keep bachelor's hall. Life in a flat seemed a joy to him, for he confessed to me the fact that life up in the country was intolerable, as It took one man's time to shovel in the coal and wood in the mad effort to Keep warm. It was plain he had lost the enthusiasm for his country home. But it's 10 to one his country friend would not swap places with him if he could; neither would I. Across the way from me was a handsome couple of about 35 years of age. She bore in her arms as she entered what I thought was a baby. But as she seated herself and unwrapped the ob ject, I saw she had a fine toy dog. She was violating one of tne rules about carrying dogs in a passenger car. Her husband talked flippantly about the "fresh conductors" who sometimes enforced the orders of the road. But it was Christmas night, and my con ductor friend was too busy collecting fares to bother with the dog question. I thought the man more fresh than the conductors he talked about. They left the train at Meriden, and she went out hugging her dog. I thought of the many motherless babies need ing the care she. was bestowing on this beast. At Berlin four pompous people came bustling in as if they owned .the railroad. They were a prosperous looking man of about TO years, with his wife and two hand some daughters. They were stun ningly attireu, and made a big fuss as tney were obliged to seat them selves in four different- seats. At Memen a vacant seat afipeareu and the effusive daughters witn much flourish of their furs and their jewel encircled arms, secured a seat to gether. The indulgent father soon supplied them with copies of the La dies' Home Journal, and I observed they opened the paper to an article entitled "Engaged Girls' Stories." It was piain to be seen that if they were not engageu ttten, they were anxiotw to be. At New Haven Papa and Mamma secured seats together and at Bridgeport as I left the train. I observed there was a still further flourish of furs and laces as the quar tet had a glad reunion in two seats together. In the rear of the train was a young couple that interested me. The girl was not over 17 and In her arms had a baby cf a year or more. She seemed a cm id and they sat close together and held hands in a loving fashion. Dressed in black they were returning from some fune ral and seemed sad and forlorn under the wlerd gas light In the front of the car was a young Frenchman trav eling alone with a girl of six or seven year. He was bound for Mt Vernon, and he was troubled over the fact that he must change can at Bridge port and seek a local train for hli home. Not far from my seat was a woman and a full grown son who played the selfish act. The train was crowded, but she occupied two seats und paid no attention to the crowds 08 they poured In at tne different stations, looking for seats. If she had been a man, she would have been tailed a "hog" for the characteris tics she displayed settled In my mind what kind of a character she possess ed. At Merldcn a sensisje brakeman quickly grasped her bags and bundles and lunches and before she could say "Jack Robinson ' she and her bags were all settled In one seat. It took the hand of authority to teach her what she ought to nave known her self. After leaving the train at Bridgeport I entered a restaurant, and wns Interested and pained as one man was narrating the sad accident on the troney in the Naugatuck val ley, where a brave motorman and corductor lost their lives. Listening to the story was a prosperous looking business man, who had just come oft a New York train. "I witnessed a bad accident," said he, "Just before coming aboard my train at New York. A taxi-cab loaded with passen gers came tearing around a corner. It collided with a coupe filled with passengers, The coupe and taxi-cab went into one confused heap, while men and women shrieked. 'My leg Is broken,' 3houted one man. Police men arrested witnesses of the acci dent and took them to the station. A man dressed in evening attire just a head of me was tapped on the shoulder by the policeman, who said: 'Come with me.' Why, I am going to the opera with my wife,' replied the man. 'No matter,' said the officer, 'you are under arrest.' My friend, not wishing to be arrested, turned on uis heel and ran toward the depot." After a luncu, I went out in the storm again and a trolley car soon brought me to my destination. CHRISTMAS EXERCISES AT THE CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH. Offering Sent to the" Jacob Reis Mis sion. . The Christmas exercises of the Congregational Sunday school, Christmas eve, brought out an aud ience which nearly tilled the church auditorium, while many found seats in the ganeries; The exercises pass ed off well and were interesting. The Sunday school united tc carry out the Christmas spirit, each class bringing in an offering to the Jacob Reis set tlement in New York. This work was briefly presented to the audience by Gustave W. Carlson, after which a representative of each came for ward reciting a vse and presenting the offerings of their class.
