THE ENGINEER'S STORY.
I ani an engineer. Ever since—
road was laid, I've traveled it every
day, or nearly every day, of my life.
For a good while, I've had the &tine
engine in charge—the San Francis
co—the prettiest engine on the road,
and as well managed,-if I say it, as the
It was a southwestern road, run
ning, so we will say, from Ato Z. At
A, my good old mother lived; at Z,
had the sweetest little wife under the
sun, and a baby, and I always had a
dollar or two put by for a rainy day.
I was an odd kind of man. Being shut
up with the engine, watching with all
your eyes and heart and soul, inside
and out, don't make a man talkative.
My wife's name was Josephine, and
I called hor Jo. Some people call me
unsociable, and couldn't understand
how a man could feel friendly without
saying ten words an hour. So, though
had a fow friends—dear ones, too—
I did not have so many acquaintances
as most people, and did not rate to
have. The house which hold my wife
and baby was the dearest spot on earth
to me, except the old house that held
my mother, up at A.
I never belonged to a club, or mixed
myself up with strangers in any such
- n - ^ - 3 - T"." - . 4- "-" - <•= --- r:hu , r l,l , if it had not
been for Granby. You see Granby
was one of the shareholders; a hand
some' showy fellow. I liked to talk
with him, and we were friends. lie
often rode from Z to A, and back again,
with me, and once he said :
"You ought to belong to the Scien
tific Club, Clinelden."
"I never heard of it," said I.
"I am a member," said ho. "We
meet once a fortnight, and have a jolly
good time. We want thinking men
like you. We have some among us,
now. I'll propose you, if you like."
I was fond of such things, and I had
ideas that I fancied might he worth
something. But tho engineer don't
have nights or days to himself, and tho
club would have ono evening a fort
night from Jo. I said :
"I'll ask her. If she likes it, yes."
"Ask whom?" said ho.
"Jo," said I.
"If every man had asked his wife,
every man's wife would have said,
'Can't spare you, my dear,' and, we
should have no club, at all," said Gran
But I made no answer. At home, I
told Jo. She said :
"I shall miss you, Ned; but you do
love such things, and then, if Granby
belongs, they must be superior mon."
"No doubt," said I.
"It isn't everybody who could be
made a member," said Jo. "Why, of
course, you must say yes."
So I said yes, and Granby proposed
me. Thursday fortnight, 1 went with
him to the rooms. Tho roal business
of the evening was the supper, and so
it was every evening.
I'd always been a temperate man.
i - ictually did not know what effect wino
would have on me; but coming to drink
more of it than I ever had befime, at
the club table, I found it put steam on.
After so many glasses, I wanted to
talk ; after so many more, I did.
I seemed like somebody else, the
words were so ready. My little ideas
came out, and were listened to. I
made sharp hits ; I indulged in repar
tee; I told stories ; I even came to
puns. I heard somebody say to (Iran
by, "By George, that's a man worth
knowing. I thought him dull at first."
Yet I knew it was bettor to be quiet
Ned Glidden, with his ten words an
boor, than the wino-made wit I was.
I was sure of it when, three months
after, I stumbled up stairs, to find Jo
waiting for mo with her baby on her
"You've been deceiving me," . said Jo.
"I suspected it, but I wasn't sure. A
scientific club couldn't smell like a bar
"Which means I do," said I, waver•
ing in the middle of the room like a
signal flag at a station, and seeing two
".iio look like one," said Jo; and
wont and lop.4ed herself and the baby
in the spare tied-room.
One club night, as was dressed to
go, Jo stood before me.
"Ned," said she, "I never had a fault
to find with you beforo. You've been
kind, and good, and loving always;
but I should be sorry we ever met, if
you go on in thin way. Don't ask•me
what I mean. You knew."
"Jo;" said I, "it's only on club night."
"lit will grow," said she.
Then she put her arms around my
)N, PA., WEDNESDAY, JUNE 12. 1867.
"Ned," said she, "do you think a
thing so much like a bottled up and
strapped down demon as steam is, is fit
to put into the bands of a drunken
man? And some day, mark my words,
not only Thursday night, but all the
days of the week will be the same. I've
often hoard you wonder what the feel
ings of an engineer who has about the
same as murdered a train full of peo
ple must be, and you'll know if you
don't stop where you are. A steady
hand and a clear head have been your
blessings all these years. Don't throw
them away. Ned, if you don't care
for my love, don't ruin yourself"
"Don't be afraid, child. I'll never
pain you again."
_And tneautit;_hu t itttifea ve o'clock
that night, 1 felt that ,I had forgotten
my promise and my resolution.' .
I couldn't get home to Jo. I made
up my mind to slcep'on the club sofa,
and leave the place for good, the next
day. Already, I felt:my brain real as
it had never before. In an hour, I was
in a kind of stupor.
It was morning. A waiter stood
ready to brush my coat. I paw a grin
on his face. My heart, seemed ready
to burst; my hand 'trembled. I looked
at my watch— I had only five minutes
to reach the depot!
Jo's words came to my mind. Was
I not fit to take charge of an engine ?
I could not answer. I ought to have
asked some sober man. As it was, I
only caught my hat and rushed away.
1 was just in time.
The San Francisco glittered in the
morning Fula. From my post, I could
hoar the people talking—bidding each
other good-by, promising to write, and
all that sort of thing. Amongst them
was an old gentleman I knew by sight
—one of the shareholders; he was bid
ding two timid girls adieu.
"Good-by, Kitty—good by, Lite," I
heard him say; "don't be nervous.
The San Francisco is the safest engine
on the line, and Guelden the most care
ful engineer. I wouldn't be afraid to
trust every mortal I love to their keep
ing. Nothing could happen wrong
with the two together."
I said to myself, I'll get through
somehow, and Jo shall never find fault
with me again.
I reeled its I spoke. I heard the sig.
nal. We were off.
Five hours from L. to D.; five hours
back. On the last heat, I knew I
should be myself again.
1 saw a red flutter, but never guessed
what it was until we were past the
down train at the wrong place. Two
minutes more, and wo would have it
collision. Somebody told and so.
laughed. I heard him say, respectfully,
"Of course, Mr. Guelden, you know
what you are about !"
Then I was alone, and wondering
whether I should go faster or slower.
1 did something, and the ears rushed
on at a fearful rate.
The same man who had spoken to
me before was standing near ine. I
heard some question. How many
miles an hour were wo making? I
Battle, rattle, rattle I I was trying
now to slacken the speed of the San
Francisco. I could not remember
what I should do. Was it this, or that?
—flister or slower ? I was playing
with the engine like a child.
Suddenly, there was a horrible roar
—a crash I I was flung somewhere. I
was in the water. By a miracle, I was
sobered, not hurt. 1 gained the shore.
I stood upon the ground between the
track and the river's edge, and gazed
at my work.
The engine was in fragments, the
cars in splinters, and the dead and dy
ing were strewn around—men, woman
and children, old age and tender youth.
There were groans and shrieks of de.
spair. The maimed cried out in pain;
the uninjured bewailed their dead. A
voice, unheard by any other, was in
my ear, and it whispered "Murder I'
The news had gone to A., and the
people came thi gaging down to find
their friends. The dead were stretched
on the grass. I went with some of tho
distracted to find their lost ones.
Searching fur an old man's daughter,
I came to a place under the trees where
five bodies were lying in rigid horror
—an old woman, a young one, a baby,
and two tiny children. Was it fancy,
born of my anguish ? No. Oh, heav
en I they were my old mother, my
wife, my children—all cold in death
How did they come on that train?—
What chance had brought this about ?
No one could answer. I groaned; 1
screamed; I clasped my hands; I tore
my hair. I gazed in the good old lime
of her who gave me birth, on the love
ly features of my wife, and on my inno
cent children. I called them by name;
there was no answer.
They were dead ! As I comprehen

Tulpin mentions a painter who be
hoved that all • the bones of his body
were so soft and flexible that they
might easily be crushed together, or
folded within one another, like pieces
of pliable wax. A Lusitanian doctor
had a patient who insisted that ho was
perpetually frozen, and would sit be
fore a great lire even in the dog days.
The doctor made him a dress of rough
sheep skins, saturated with aqua vita,
and sot him, on fire. Ho then said he
was quite warm, rather too much so,
and was cured. Galen and Avieenra
make mention of people who have fan
cied themselves earthen pots,and there
fore have carefully avoided being touch
ed, for fear they should be broken.
Then there is the case of the insane
watchmaker mentioned by Pinel, who
insisted ho had been guill6tined and
another head had afterward, by mis
take, been put on his shoulders, in
stead of his own. "Look at these teeth,"
he would say; "mine were extremely
handsome—these are decayed. My
mouth was sound and healthy—this is
foul. How different is the hair from
that of my own head." Mr. Haslam,
in his work on insanity, mentions a
case of one who insisted he had no
mouth, and when compelled by force
to swallow, declared a wound had been
mado in his throat, through which the
food bad been introduced. Benvenuto
Cellini, the celebrated Florentine ar
tist, in his life, says•that the governor
of the castle in which the former was
confined had a periodical disorder of
this sort; every year.he had some dif
ferent white. One time he conceived
himself changed into a pitcher of oil;
at another he thought himself a frog,
and began to leap as such ; another
ho imagined he was dead,
and it was found necessary to humor
his conceit by making a show of bury
At length Ito thought himself a bat,
and when ho went to take a walk he
sometimes made just such a noise as
bats do; he likewise used gestures
with his hands and body, as if ho were
going to fly. Noses have been known
to be particularly troublesome to hyp
ochondriacs. One man litneied his nose
was of a ludicrous length, and conse
quently kept backing off as his friends
approached to hold a parley with him,
fearing that he should put their eyes
out, It is said that frequently this
seine deluded possessor of a long nose
might be seen going along the street,
guiding his nose with his hand, to keep
it from breaking the shop windows.
A young man had a strong imagina

begged his friends to bury,him. They
consented, by the advice of the physi

"And a very good job it, is," said one
of them ; "for the world is well rid of a
very bad character, which the gallows
must have had in due course."
The yOung man, now lying dead,
hearing this, popped up his head and
said they ought to be ashamed of them
selves in thus traducing his fair fame,
and if he were alive he would thrash
them for their insolence. But they
continued to utter the most disgraceful

How a Young Lady Goes to Bed,
Dismissing Mandy, her foster sister
and maid, Miss Preston perfbrmed the
.task of disrobing for the night,without
other assistance than that of her own
First the little lace collar and rib
bon were removed from the neck, and
the bright merino dress laid aside;
next the snowy skirts were lifted over
the head ; then a spring touched in
front of the rounded waist, when with
a clicking and metallic sound down
came the wide expanse . of crinoline,
and Miss Charley stepped out of its
steel circle, considerably collapsed, but
all the prettier. A somewhat similiar
mechanical operation was repeated,
and numerous springs and curls wore
set in lively motion, and then with a
stretch upward of the plump white arms,
and a long drawn sigh of relief, off
came the little French "railroad" cor
and the dimAled shoulders of the
wearer rose in unrestricted freedom.
The snowy ni lit gown was now i
slipped over the had, and its delicate
frills daintily adjusted to the throat
and wrists. _Next the mirror was vis
ited, and the charming little moues
made at the bright face it reflected,
and then seizing the brush, the girl
proceeded to apply it to her glossy
curls until-they shone like satin.
Then to the washstand, where teeth
white as cocoanut meat, were rubbed
until they gleamed whiter, and the
rosy face dipped in the gilded basin of
pure cold water until it glowed with
renewed crimson. And then drawing
a low seat close to the fire, the young
girl laid ono pretty toot lightly on her
knee and began to unlace the tiny
boot which encased it. In a few mo
ments both little feet were bare in
their childish beauty, and pressed
down on the hot bricks of the hearth,
while a careful measurement was made
as to the relative lengths of the big
toe and the one next to it, for on thin
important difference depends the mo
mentous question as to which of the
two shall rule in the future married
life of the measurer—it having been
decreed by mysterious and immutable
signs that should the great toe be lon
ger, the fbrtheoming lord of the lady
will be master as well, while if the
second has the pre eminence, a similar
fate is in store for herself; and her only
master will be her own sweet will.
In the present instance both of the
soft, pink toes were of such sameness
of length that the inference was suffi.-
ciontly clear that destiny decreed the
married life of Miss Chadey Preston
should ho a state of equal rights.. -
The young lady sat still and amused
herself by doing a little prospecting in
the way of gazing down into the coals
glowing before her, and then taking
her Bible from its stand, she read the
lessons appointed for the evening,then
knelt and said her simple prayers. A
puff of fragrant breath from a pair of
rosy lips, and out went the candle,
leaving the room lighted only by the
rich fire light. Then unbolting the
door, that Mandy, who slept in her
young mistress' room, might gain ac
cess, when it should please her to leave
the delights of the kitchen; the young
girl turned back the soft blankets and
snowy sheets of her bed, made the
impress of her rounded figure in its
downy depth, laid her innocent head
upon the tastefully trimmed pillow,
and, went tc her happy dreams.
Au Item Whioh Every Man Should
We have, probably all of us, met
with instances in which a word heed
lessly spoken against the reputation of
a female has been magnified by mali
cious minds, until tho cloud has been
dark enough, to overshadow her whole
existence. To those who are accus
tomed, not necessarily from bad mo
tives, but from thoughtlessness, to
speak lightly of ladies, we recommend
these "hits" as worthy of considers,
Never use a lady's name in tin im
proper place, at an improper timo, or
in mixed company. Never make as
sertions about her that you think un
truo, or allusions that you fool she her

meet with men who do not scruple to
make use of a woman's namo in a
reckless and unprincipled mariner,
shun them, for they aro the worst
members of the community—mon lost

Many a good and worthy woman's
character has boon forever ruined and
heart-broken by a lie manufactured by
some villain, and repeated where it
should not have boon, and in the pres

not deter them from circulating the
foul and bragging report. A slander
is soon propagated, and - the smallest
thing derogatory to a woman's char
acter will fly on the wings of the wind
and magnify as it circulates, until its
monstrous weight crushes the poor
unconscious victim. Respect the name
of woman, for your mother and Ni eters

"1 do not think," said one of the
party, "that all men should indiscrim

"Women I" quickly replied a spirited
lady on the opposite lido of the table,
a disciple, perhaps, of Miss Grinke,
and why should women not vote ! Do
you mean to say we are inferior to the
