EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
BY H.E. SMITH
In a Tunnel
"Twenty minutes," replied the brakeman, surely incited by the Evil One. Where, oh, where will that brakeman go when he dies? Was his conscience deadened as well as his outer ear by the kin of his life; or did he view with indifference the possibility of any future state being worse than the pandemonium of his present existence? Our traveler was immediately beset by a crowd of clamorous hackmen desirous of driving her out of her wits, if not to the end of the earth. Escaping this snare, she fell into another of babies and dusty parents.
How many tender innocents she upset in her haste, thus increasing the general  uproar, Ruth, although naturally humane, never knew.
 Everywhere a hopeless blockade of baggage, trunks, and struggling humanity—everywhere insane panic of hurry in the fear of being left behind. The bewildered woman could not approach within ear-shot of the perspiring ticket-master, whose suffused face glared vengefully through his pigeon-hole as he snapped short the incoherent questions of distracted passengers. If she could only ascertain where the old lady had gone.
 "Which is the Locust Valley train?" she asked of a baggage-man who was pausing to take breath after lifting a Saratoga trunk of huge dimensions. The baggage-man, with agonizing deliberation, rested his great hands on his hips, thrust a quid of tobacco into his cheek, stared at his interlocutor, and said:  "Hey?"
 Miss Ruth repeated her question with the energy of despair.
"Where do you want to go?" inquired the baggage-man, warily. Then it became a painfully evident fact that where Miss Mayhew wanted to go and where she was going were too widely sundered matters, for she beheld her train in motion. To rush toward it, to signal blindly—as if the insensate monster would stop!—to be held back from jumping on the board in a gentlemanly fashion, and then to be left gazing blankly into space—that was her experience. A voice came back on the wind: I will keep your things for you."
To inveigh bitterly against the deceitfulness of brakemen was an impulse which our unfortunate lady checked with true dignity of character. "I will find the old lady at all events," she decided, "even though she should prove the proverbial lady in that haystack of a depot."
