OF CLOUD COUNTY
By H.E. Smith
A Night In a Signal-Box
"Who knows, Jane? He was ever kind, and he may start me in something," said John, one evening, when I had taken tea to the signal box, and was amusing Maude with the colored lams. "I certainly will try, if-fi," he added, looking thoughtfully up and down the lines, "Nothing happens before."
"For goodness sake, John, don't talk like that? All has gone safely for four years; surely it will continue to do so, with care."
"I don't know that," he responded, gloomily. "It's the confounded Wyoming express I fear. Within a space of a few minutes it crosses the Hens her mail, and often it's five minutes before it's time." "What do you do then, John?" I asked, hushing Maude. "Why, then I turn the colored lamp; then the express, knowing the mail train hasn't passed, slackens speed until it has." "And if you were not to show that light?" "It would come on, get into the same line with the mail, and the carriages would go into Lucifer matches." "Oh, John, please don't. You make my blood run cold."
After that there was another fascination for me besides the signal box—the colored lamps, by mistake or omission in the use of which I knew not how many lives might be hurled to eternity. I regarded them with awe, and over again and again asked John their use.
Weeks slipped by and we got another letter from Uncle Thompson. The ship which brought him from Australia had been delayed by a severe gale in the Atlantic, but now he was safe in England, and intended to come and see us.
"Safe!" remarked John; "no one now-a-days can reckon on that, with a long railway journey before him."
John slightly exaggerated, of course, but that autumn the collisions and accidents of all kinds were something fearful. Not a day passed but fresh collisions were recorded, and, with a morbid interest, John used to read them, and make my soul quiver by the remarks, "Such might just have been my case, Jane. No doubt the fellow was dead-beat. Only the mercy of Providence saves me from manslaughter, or a discharge through negligence."
One oppressively warm evening he had, while at tea, been reading about a more than usually terrible accident, owing, it was stated, to the signalman, who had been on the lookout for sixteen hours, making an error in the signals.
