EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
By H.E. Smith
A Night in a Signal-Box
"John!" I called, shaking his shoulder, "What is the matter with you? Wake up! It's eleven; the express is coming!"
He breathed heavily, but made no sign. What was the matter with him? He appeared in no natural sleep. In my alarm at the flying moments, fond mother as I was, I forced Maudie to cry, hoping that might awaken him. It did. Slowly he looked up heavily; but only to sink back to sleep. At the same moment I heard in the distance the faint whistle of the express train. It was coming, and the Hensher mail had not yet passed.
The terror of a whole life was condensed in those few minutes. The collision John had foretold had come at last. All my efforts to arouse him were futile. I stood alone; the trains were rushing to their fate. I saw the awful sight of my dream realized; I saw men, women and children in one fearful heap, amid broken carriages. My head reeled; I turned sick; thence the intensity of my fright apparently cleared my brain.
Why should I not save them? As the question occurred, the whistle of the advancing mail sounded. Looking right and left, I perceived the glowing lights of each engine coming nearer, for the line was clear. I waited no more. I recalled what John had told me, and turned the signal lantern for the express to slacken speed. Eagerly, breathlessly I watched. Had I, after all, made a mistake? Yes—the lights still approached. No—they had stopped.
 The next moment the signal box was shaken to its base by the rush of the mail train beneath it. I watched it fly off in the distance, turned the light, heard the Wyoming express in its turn wheel under me, and knew, as I fell insensible on the floor, that nearly two hundred people had been on the brink of the grave, and that I had saved them.
My baby's cries, however, soon recalled my senses, when fetching water, I dashed it over John and at last brought him to. I shall ever remember his look when I told him what had occurred. He could not believe the mail had passed; but I proved it to him beyond a doubt.
