YANKED INTO ETERNITY.
A ThxilHwg Tale of the Rail as Re-
m r lated by William Nye.
Once when u section crew came
down the mountain on the South
Park road from Alpine Tunnel to
J3ucna vista, a very singular thing
occurred, which has never been
given to the public. Every one
who knows anything at all, knows
that riding down that mountain
on a push car, descending at the
rate of over two hundred feet to
the mile, means utter destruction
unless the brake is on. This brake
is nothing more nor less than a
piece of scantling which is applied
between one of the wheels and the
car bed in such a way as to pro
duce great fiiction.
The section crew referred to got
on their Hancock with their
bronzed and glowing hides as full
of arsenic and rainwater as they
could possibly hold. Being reck
lessly drunk they enjoyed the
accumulated velocity of the car
wonderfully until the section boss
lost the break off the car, and
then theie was a slight feeling of
anxiety. The car at last acquired
a velocity like that of a young and
froiicsome bob-tailed comet turned
loose into space. The boys began
to get nervous at last and asked
each other what should be done.
There seemed to be absolutely
nothing to be done but to shoot
onward into the golden presently.
All at once the section boss
thought of something. He was
drunk, but the deadly peril of the
moment suggested an idea. There
was a rope on the car which would
do to tie something heavy and
cast off for an anchor. The idea
was only partially successful, how
ever for there was nothing to tie
it to but a spike hammer. This was
tried but it wouldn't work. Then
it was decided. tot fie it to some
one of the crew and cast liim
loose in order to save the lives or
those "who remained. It was a
glorious opportunity. It yn&' &
heroic thiug to do. ' It' "was like
Arnold Winklered's great sacri
fice by which victory was gained
by filling his own system full of
lances and making a toothpick
holder of himself, in order that his
comrades might break through the
ranks of their foes.
George O'Malley, the section
boss, said that he was willing that
Patsy McBride should snatch the
laurels from the outrageous future
and bind them on his brow, but
Mr. McBride said he didn't care
much for the economy of the
world. He hadn't lost any cconi
ums, and didn't want to trade his
liver for two dollars' worth of
Everyone declined. All seemed
willing to go down into history
withoul any ten-line pay local, and
wanted some one else to get the
effulgence. Finally it was de-
cided that a man by the name of
Christian Christianson was the
man to tie to. He had the
asthma anyhow, and life wasn't
much of an object to him, so they
said that although he declined, he
must take the nomination, as he
was in the hands of his friends.
The car slowed up and at last
stopped still. The plan had suc
ceeded. Five happy wives greeted
their husbands that night as they
returned from the jaws of destruc
tion. Christian Christianson did
not return. The days may come
and the days may go, but Chris
tian's "wife will look up towards
the summit of the snow-ci owned
mountain in vain.
He will never entirely return.
Ho has done so, partially of course,
but thero are still missing frag
ments of him, and it looks as
though he must have lost his life.
A Little Phrenology.
Round-eyed persons see much,
live much in the senses, but think
less. Narrow-eyed persons, on
the other hand, see less, but think
more And feel more intensely. It
will be observed that the ej'es of
children are open and round. Their
whole life is to receive impressions.
Itk oaljr when childhood is nut-
toward mtaheed -ad
womanhood that thought comes at
all But what is that most loads
to reflection? Kvperience. Our
errors, ou shortcomings, our fail
ures these teach us to think bo
fore we act, to consider each step,
to weigh each moth o. When,
therefore, the upper eyelid for it
is that which has the greatest
amount of mobility droops over
the evo it indicates not merely 10
flection. but something painful to
reflect about. Hence the length
or drooping of the upper eyelid
betokens confession and peni
tence. The drooping of half of the eye
lids ft om the outer angle to the
center indicates the disposition to
confess one's failure to patents or
seniors, to a "father confessor," or
to the .supreme being. The
drooping of half of the eyelids
from the inner angle to the center
betokens the disposition to repent,
and to "do works meet for re
pentance." Closely allied to these
sights are those of prayerftilncss and
humility. The former is indicated
by the muscle which turns the
ce directly downwatd, as repte
sented in the picture of the Ma
donna. Prayerfulness is usually
large in connection with that of
penitence, the reason of which is,
that between the faculties of peni
tence and humility theie is the
.same close connection as between
confession and piayer. One who
has more prayer than humility has
the eye turned habitually some
what upward, so that the upper
part of the iris is a little covered
by the upper eelid and so as to
leave a slight space between the
iris and the lower lid. The re
verse is true of one who has more
humility than prayer.
The faculty of truth that is,
the love- of it is indicated by the
muscle which surrounds the eye,
causing folds and wrinkles. Jus
tice is indicated by the muscle
which causes perpendicular wrin
kles between tha eyebrowjs-." dPulI
ness nd wrinkles under thejeyos
for which some persons are re
markable, indicate the love of
mathematical accuracy; and wrin
kles curving upward from the
outer angle of the ej'e and eye
brow, indicate probity of personal
truthfulness. There are three de
grees of the faculty of justice.
The first is a kind of exactness or
strict honesty in small money mat
ters, which some people would call
closeness, and is indicated by a
singular perpendicular wrinkle or
line between the eyebrows. The
second is the disposition to requite
justice in other, and is indicated
by two perpendicular lines or
wrinkles, one each side of the cen
ter a very common sign. The
third degree is conscientiousness,
or the disposition to apply the rule
of justice to one's self, and is in
dicated by three or more wrinkles
or lines, especially noticeable, ex
tending above the eyebrow when
the musclo is in action. The love
of command is indicated by one
short transverse wrinkle across
the root of the nose, exactly be
tween the eyes. It may be seen
in great military commanders, in
masters and teachers, and in those
generally who are fond of exer
cising authority. In those who
are wanting in the power to com
mand, and have no desire for re
sponsibilit', this sign is also ab
sent. The faculty of command
frequently acts with that part of
justice which reptimands, or re
quires others to do right, and both
together produce that frowning or
lowering brow which is so terrible
to evil-doers, or to those who love
to be approved rather than condemned.
Blow Out the Light
An exchange gives us some
hints and information which may
be useful, as follews: Persons
whose business does not make it
necessary for them to be out at
night would be surprised in a
night's walk to observe the great
number of residences in which a
lamp is kept burning all night.

room are usually eloped, because if
left open the light would attract
flies and mosquitoes. Tin flame
of one light turned down low re
quires more oxygen tn keep it
burning than is consumed by two
adult poison. The light from the
lamp is also injurious to the eyes,
and possibly to this fact may be
traced the constantly increasing
prevalence of eye disease. The
best way is to keep a lamp teady
to light in cao of emergency dur
ing the darkness, with matches
convenientlv beside it. The eyes
need rest as well as the brain and
muscles, and the darkness in which
to find it.
The Uneasy Skipper.
"It is curious how little comfort
our skippeis seem to take on
shore," said au old ship broker.
"One would think they would cn
joj' it, but the don't. They soon
get tired of their boiled shirts and
want to get back into the woolen
ones they wear at sea. And when
one of them has made money
enough to retire on he hates to
give up his ship. If he docs give
up the sea he rarely ever lives con
tent on shore. There was a captain-
who owned a large share in
one of our ships, lie was master
of her over ten year, and had
money enough to retire on. Finally
he concluded to give up the ship
He and his wife, who had been go
ing to sea with him for some years,
took a nice house in Brooklyn, out
somewhere near Prospect park.
The ship was given to another
captain, and the pair proceeded to
enjoy themselves. But they soon
got tired of shore life. The cap
tain was always tinkering with his
clocks and trying to make, them
look as much like chronometers as
he could. Then he was forever
of the wind. He missed the in
verted compass that used to hang
over his berth at sea. lie couldtrt
prevent himself from keeping a
diary, just as he would keep a log
book, and it worried him to think
that his house was always in the
same latitude and longitude. He
would go down into the cellar and
'chock' barrels up against the wall
to keep them from rolling, just as
if he was at sea. And at noon he
would get out Ins instruments to
take the position of the sun with.
He and his wife became thoroughly
sick of the land. He found fault
with the new captain of the ship,
and when she arrived at London
on her way from the East Indies
to this port, he could wait no long
er. He gave up his house and tak
ing his wife he went to London
and took command of his ship, aud
I doubt if he will ever give up the
latter again till the da that he
dies. There is something about
the deep-sea swell that gets to be
very homelike to a man after he
has been to sea a few years. And
generally speaking he finds it hard
to live for an' length of time with
out being tossed about upon it."
Just "Over the Ehine," at 39G
Vine street, Cincinnati, Ohio, lives
Mr. Licht, who suffered so with
rheumatism that he could not sleep.
Half a bottle of St. Jacobs Oil
cleared the rheumatism out quickyl.
