EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
By H.E. SMITH
My Night in a Stage Coach
In that home I was St. Nicholas himself, for it was I who brought home in the night the brave tree with its spreading green branches; it was I who planted it firmly in the middle of the wide parlor; it was I who found the infinite variety of toys, cakes, bon-bons, and glittering baubles which covered it; it was I who placed the ever-beautiful image of the Christ-Child on the topmost bough; I who lighted the many-colored tapers; and I who, at the auspicious moment, suddenly threw open the folding-doors and let in the children to behold the glory of that wondrous Christmas miracle.
In my frequent journeyings through the State, I had seen many places which I wanted to get away from quickly, but I never saw another that I wanted to turn my back upon so much as Tamaqua. It was not in any manner a pleasant place, and besides, if these nephews and nieces of mine were to have a Christmas treat at all this year, 1856, I thought I must go home as fast as I could travel. I had come to Tamaqua in a stage—not to Philadelphia, exactly, but to the next railroad town, and that was distant I knew not how far.
I arose shivering from the dreary breakfast, and hunted up the landlord of the inn. He was easily found, and was no better or warmer looking a man than his accommodations promised him to be. I paid his extravagant charges, and then informed him that I wished to reach as quickly as possible the nearest railroad station, and to take the first train for the east.
"The nearest station is at Illium; Illium is 22 miles distant; you cannot get there before night, if at all." All this was spoken reflectively, and with deliberation.
"If I get there by 10 o'clock tonight can I make the eastern express!" "Yu can, but I doubt if you can get there at all." "Why?" I asked. He was not a man to waste words. He only said: "The stage won't go—on account of the storm.
"Are you sure of that?" I ventured to ask. "Quite sure," and he closed his lips with a snap, as if he knew all about it. "Who owns the stage?" "I do," he replied. "And I won't let it go, because the road lies over that mountain yonder; it runs close to the edges of precipices several hundred feet  high, it is rough and slippery, the snow is deep now, and getting deeper every minute, and I don't believe any horse could pull through it."
