The night had come on daik and
lowering and great masses of clouds
wcro sweeping up from tho west-
ward and a flno rinziling rain had
commenced falling. Indoois tho
httlo cotlazo was all aglow with
warmth and comfort and tho tablo
was already set for supper. For
tho pat half hour tho had been
anxiously looking out of Uio winjr

heart throbbed w'tli love and prido
as she thought of her darling boy
who sat in the cab of No. 55. Her
hair was almost white and told of
years of patient uncomplaining
toil and caio had seamed her brow
"1 wonder if Tom w ill he on time
to.night" she eaiiT to hertelf as she
arranged his plate cup and saucer
and placed his iavorito dished
around his plato The clock tick-
ed oil tho minutes and tho hands
pointed to threo minutes to eight.
At eight o'clock No. 55 was duo at
tho depot in the little city of Paris
and ag iln sho parted tho curtains
and looked out into tho nlghi
toward wheie tho fireman on 55
her Tom her solo support and
only son was speeding towards
'I know he'll he terribly hungry
when ho gets in" she inurmuioJ
to herself '"it's being ho haul mak-
in steam on a wet windy day like
lo-dav and Tom will bo all tiled
out when ho gets home."
Tho hands pointed to a minuto
to eight and l")V. away off down the
road her waiting eir caught tho
faint echo of a locomotive whistle.
It was more than a mile away down
by tho first crossing below town.
Two long blasts and then two
short sharp whistles for tho cross-
ing. "There ho comes" she exclaimed
joyfully and hurried away to com-
plete her preparations for his sup-
per. The colfee was set hack on
the stovo wheie it would keep warm
and her benevolent old face beamed
with happiness at tho thought of
Ins near anivai. me ram panfieu
against the window panes and the
wind sighed mournfully through
.the shruhbory in tho yard. But
she heard nor heeded not as. she
"Ono moie shovel of coal will
carry her in Jack" taid tho file-
man jeiking open the furnace door
and pitching in the last shovel full.
Tho engineer noddul and placed
his hand on tho gieat lever. A
moment moie and his hand went
up to the cold over his head and
tho whistle sounded out four sharp
shrill blasts that etnitledtheechous
of tho night Tho fireman climbed
ijj?k inter his seal and shading his
'onUiinu sffa.tlie' l)
in his mother's window. On and
on darted tho night vipross and
now they appro.itliul tho firnt
switch in the jaids. Tho engineer
peered anxiously out as tho while
bir of iron llah"d into bight bel'oVo
them. Tliero wtu a great lurch and
iureivo a clatter of iinn and the
train sw u ved to the right.
Great Clodl an open switch. Too
late for farewells ton late for pray-
ci s. too late but to dio on 55.
Tho engineer clutched tho lover
in despeiation and agony bin face
blanched and set ono moment of
Biispcnto and then a blinding
thumleiing crash a shivering of
steel and of wood and glan and ono
terriblo cry of terror and agony
from five hundred men and women
Someone was to blame. Tho
switch had been left open and No
55 had plunged into tho fieigbt
cars on the siding. Tlnoitgh the
dust smoke and tho diizzling rain
tho rcscunru hurried about with
torches and lartteiu. The coaches
had caught fire and the flames
leaped up lighting up tho 'wieek
and casting a luiid glare fir outin-
to the night. A ecoio of men and
women had perished and now the
rescucis approaches! tho engine. It
lay on its 'lido with tho steam es-
caping in fitful gasps. The en-
gineer had stuck to his post and
had ponn down b'Mieath his engine
rnslu i and mangled beyond ro-
cognitio i. Tho fireman had jump-
ed but loo lato. A great bar of
steel had caught him and pinned
him to the earth. They approach-
ed and the lights of tho torches fell
on his faco. Ho lay on his back
his rap had fallen off and his light
curly hair clUngaround his temples
damp and stained with blood. His
r . i ere half closed and his lips
wore drawn back from his t "th n
tho last agony of diath. A r

metal as though he had tiled
