This seemed to givo an opportunity to some
evil disposed persoas to attempt a robbery.
Tho engineer saw oij several occasions somo
persons lurking near. his promises, and sus
pecting their designs determined to set a
trap for them, llo accordingly constructed
an "infernal machine," formed of a board,
on which wero placed two bowip knives.
This board was made to fit into tho window,
and drawn back by a spring, the conductors
being two threads placed across tlte window,
which, if touched, would immediately cause
the machine to strike, against the iiitiuilcr.

with a large horsewhip. Smarting under

A Moral Triumph The election of

moral triumph. Had the weapons employ
ed agapist him the perjury of PcgBeaty,

have regarded his defeat as a viclorv over
virtue. What means were left unemploy
