THE RED LIGHT.
TVo years ago I had qualified as stok-
antl, together witn too engineer,
inlr.r. rau the ueniu-Vienna express

iut he was ill or that some accident
WA haout'iied to him. aud was just on
be point of going to the superintendent

Jd it hustily and with a luck of atten

stopped suddenly and seated himself
apoii the tool chest which is attached to

laughed outright aud asked me again,
"Is everything ready, Max?"
i "Of course, Here Huusler,". I replied.
"It's about time we ran out of the Bhed,
for we have to push a couple of locomo
tives out of the way before we get
clear track to the depot "
j' Yes, yes, "returned Hausler hurried

had not known that he was a remarka

have thought he had drunk too much,

of the roundhouse quite slowly, made
obr way carefully between the locomo

outside the dopot at ten miuutes before
tke train was to start, not having cou

steam, and all the valves lut off the su
i"How is your wifo?" I asked, to
rtiuse Hausler from his lethargy.
("My wife?" he asked, with a start
'(She is very well, very well she knows
I nothing yet"
"Has something uupleasant happened
1 1 you, Here Huusler?"
"Unpleasant to me? No; I know of
lotbiug. Did I say anything? It was
ily a way I have of tulking, aud my
tfife must not kuow about it, "
4 Two great tears rolled down his
Jieeks, but he turned quickly away to
ide his sobs from me. I was at a loss
Jo understand his behavior j but, after a
few seconds, he turned to me again aud
Iu face was calm, even sinister,
j "Don't you feel well?" I asked.
1 "Oh, yes," he answered hastily,
im very well, very well indeed.
i The three strokes of the bell an
loaned the time for departure. The
twioa rerjeated siimal of the conductor

ut of his revery, gave the whistle of
tesnonae. and then, as deftly as ever, he
et the train in motion.

would make our 91 minutes. It was ex

rws. Wa were nncouDled aud ran upon

fconld take a little turn off for relnxa-
?ioa, thauka to the polisher. The fire in
jhe boiler was kept low, so that it did
ot go out aud could be bronght to full
,eat a half hour before starting. The
Machine could not runaway, for it stood
!cn a "dead" track and the pressure of
tearn was lowered so quickly that I was
afe in leaving it to the care of the pol
"her. It was an hour after our arrival
hen I went into the engineers' quarters

small libiary at band from which
one can inform himself by vrlout tech-
leal works, and Hausler formerly made
use of this library to study different
treatises ou locomotive coumruction, the
science of mechanics aud so on.
Toduy I fouud bim busy writing.
There were, besides ourselves, two en
gineers, who lay uikiu the couches
asleep. Huusler wrote with speed
which I was not accustomed to see in
him. Ho utxlded to me as I euterd and
weut ou with his writiug. I thought I
noticed that the letter upou which he
was enguged, aud which a lreudy covered
at li'itt t three octavo sheets, concerned
lurge sums of money, and the name,
Hothst'liild, too, I obaervod repeatedly.
I asked Huusler whether he would not
tuke a little something in the way of re
freshment He was, as I have said be
fore, never inclined to be dissipated,
but lie was accustomed to drink at least
one glass of beer and eat a trifle, because
he ditl not get home for supper until 11
o'cltx'k. Today, however, he refused,
I have no money. I shall, in fact,
huve to go hungry, for I cannot eat
agaiu. Everything is gone, quite gone. "
This manner of tulking naturally
struck me as strange. It was not iuteud
ed as a joke, fur Huusler did not ltxk as
if he could joke. But if it was meant In
earnest it gave me cause to fear for
Huusler's reusou, and the uneasiness
which hud tuken possession of me increased.
I could only stay in the engineers'
room long enough to get a mte to eat
and to drink a glussof beer. Theu I had
to go back to my engine to start the fires
into fresh life and get up the pressure of
steam. I threw coal Into tlie nrebox,
rakod the fire until it burned briskly,
and hud steam up again iu a short time.
When it came time to run acnata to the
truck whero we were to be coupled to
tlie Vieuuu express, I sent tlie polisher
to Huusler, for the lutter, contrary to
his custom, did not appear of his own
accord. He did not test the working of
the feeding pumps aud valves, either, as
was his wont. He seemed today to rely

verv sensitive, but when, before reach

thn tBleirranhio sianal to slow up, aud
Huusler did not mind it in the least, I
stenned up beside him aud turned tne

From the top of the house tho ice j

neer settler in that region yesterday re
luted the story that gave the name to
this stream. Several miles up from the
mouth of the creek, near where the two
main branches which form the stream
meet, lived Mort Kills, alxnit tifty year,
ago. The pioneer's cabin stood oii the
brow of a long hill, at the foot of which
was a spring which supplied the family
with water. In those early day rattle
snakes were quite numerous, ami es

and the father cautioned his four little

Alice Wilson, of Kokomo, suddenly
broke through the ground aud fell Into

soon brought out ihe family, and in
drawing her from the cave three rat
tlesnakes were found hanging to her
clothing. Howu Iu the small cave could

Although it was ihe Sulibiith, ami Mr.
Kills was a devout yiiaaer. yet ue
deemed the occasion one of moment,
aud he sent for several of his neigh
