EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
BY H.E. SMITH
In a Tunnel
The wildest commotion ensued. Everybody else feeling that it devolved upon each as men and brothers to do something, and succeeding only in creating inextricable confusion. None of the passengers had the vaguest idea what had happened. Each man grappled with his neighbor, suspecting him of some deadly villainy in that obscure night.
"I have got him," cried a cheerful voice from the door, proceeding from a stout and valiant traveler, who, indeed, held in an iron grip a slender, writhing form that indignantly rebelled against his assault. But when light dawned to a comforting brightness again, the stout gentleman was found to hold captive an innocent and much injured newspaper and pop-corn boy who had entered the car just in the nick of time to be made prisoner, while the thief slid noiselessly away to vanish forever.
Then each passenger was morally certain that the thief had crept past him while he was pursuing the gentleman opposite, and the newsboy was surest of all that he had been propelled into their midst by some unseen power on the platform. The inevitable result of so much excitement was a chilling doubt if Miss Mayhew's alarm had not been only a woman's scare, after all.
"Look at her for yourselves," she said indignantly, reading scepticism on every side. The old lady's appearance was certainly dilapidated and battered, while her beautiful beads were lying in her lap. Ruth replaced them preparatory to her getting out at the crowded terminus where she changed cars. The old lady fluttered away almost before the train had stopped, and when she had been gone fully five minutes, Miss Mayhew rattled the beads on the floor with a sudden crash. The thief had loosened the clasp in his effort to secure them. Something must be done.
Again she appealed to selfish men; they were not going to leave their places. Much good but vague advice was volunteered about keeping the necklace until she could forward it sometime, which she cut short with a decisive.
"I will go myself." The emergency required prompt action and she was equal to the emergency. Without a moment's hesitation she rushed out. "How long do we stop?" she inquired, of a brakeman, who exhaled hot oil from his very countenance.
