EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
By H.E. Smith
A Night in a Signal-Box
 Scarcely had I done so, however, when arose before me a shadowy figure of indefinite form, pointing in the direction of a signal box.
I moved restlessly, and put my hands before my eyes to shut it out. Finally, I started, rose to my feet, and I could have declared the figure stood on the hearth-rug in the fire-light, only it gradually melted into air.
Just then the clock struck half-past-ten. In half an hour the Wyoming express and Hensher mail would be due. At that I began to tremble violently, and throwing on my shawl, I determined to go and look at the signal box, and see if it was right.
White mists had risen since I was last out; and above them, rising as from a billowy sea, about a mile distant raised the "look-out," distinct in the moonlight.
But where was John? Generally I could see him moving about; now, the place was apparently empty. What did it mean? There was but one answer—John was asleep.
Never shall I forget the sensation that ran through my veins at that thought. The crown of my head seemed to literally lift up. Then—why, I could never explain—I ran back, seized Maudie, and afterwards hurried to the signal box.
Rapidly, I ascended the steps to the "look-out." I tried the door; it was fastened on the inside; and what a sight met me within, through the glass.
John sound asleep, his head on his arms. Calling him loudly, I shook the handle. He did not stir. All was silent, save for the monotonous tick of the clock beating out the fatal minutes above his head. I dared not delay. I dashed in the glass, put in my hand, turned the key, and entered. Even this did not arouse him.
