Our Short Story. FACED DEATH FOUR, TIMES. What are the eenaatious of a person who is ruddenly brought face to face with death while in the full possession of his faculties? There are evidences that persons who are suffering great pain, as from injuries, welcome death be- cause it brings relief with its near approach and those whom disease has exhausted seem to know no more of their coming dissolution than that they are sinking to rest. "I can imagine that a person who was in full posBeesion of his faculties and suddenly found himself about to meet death would be poeseseed by an overwhelming fear," said the observant Jerseyman when appealed to upon this subpect, "but my own experience does not warrant this conclusion. I do not believe that I am pos- sessed of any more than ordinary nerves and bravery, and I have never done anything to indicate that I am more than an average per- son in these respects; but four times I have been in imminent peril of my life and each time under circumstances which led me to be- lieve that death was but a matter of seconds. "The first great peril of my life occurred in Perth Amboy 41 years ago, when I was less than eight years old; but I remember all about it as well as if it were an occurence of recent date. I was plaviug ^Krint »•»> unfin,Uh«ul frame building with a boy of my own age, named Lecompt. We were climbing about the frame on the second floor when I lost my foot- ing and feU through the floor beams. I went down through the floor beams of the first storey and struck, head foremost, on a pile of bricks in the cellar. In the second or two of my fall, I was fully conscious of my peril, but I recall no feeling of terror, only a vague hope that I should not be hurt. I was unconscious when I was picked up, and when I came to I remembered my last sensations and felt of my arms and legs to see if they were broken, ano was content when I found that they were whole and I had received no worse harm than a sore scalp. "The next occasion of deadly peril was in 1863, when I was tramping through the Adi- rondak region with Stephen S. Van Schaick of New York. I never knew just where the scene of this adventure lay until recently, when in looking over a. new map of that country, I traced our route from Troy to Fort Edward, then to Fort William Henry, and up Lake George to Ticonderoga and Crown Point, into the Adirondacks to Elizabethtown. to the foot of Mount Maroy, and then the tramp back to Troy, 125 miles, over the old plank road that led past Schroon Lake. There, on the map, I found the Wash Basins, and recognised it as the place of my deadly peril • "We had caught a ride with a farmer, and having been with him for a mile or two and told l hilll that we were tithttetinc. he atjpued hit wagon, and, pointing to a path that led into the piney woods to the right. said: 'If you want to see a sight take that pa.th.' '"We thanked him. and without asking any questions plunged into the woods. I was in the lead. A quarter of a mile from the road I suddenly emerged from the woods, and before I had time to look about me í found myself sliding along the face of a rock which sloped gently away from the woods. The rock was covered with a coating of pine needles, which were as smooth as glass. Anyone who has tried climb- ing over earth patha under the pine trees knows how the feet will slide on the dead pine needles. I slid along surely but not rapidly, and I could not stop my progress. As I slid I braced my feet and looked ahead. Not more than ten or fifteen feet ahead I saw that the rock ended in mid air. and that before me lay a deep valley. To make any move to stop myself seemed to be merely to make disaster more imminent, and I did nothing but brace my feet more firmly, as if I were being driven forward on slick ice by a strong wind. As I drew near the edge of the rock I confidently expected that I would con- tinue my course right over it and be dashed to death, and yet I had no thought of terror. At the very brink the surface of the rock turned upward a little, and this arrested my progress when my very toes were even with the edge. As I cnme to a standstill the scene before me was so striking that all thought of my danger left me. "I was on the edge of a table rock which I think must have been 300ft. above the bottom ef the valley, and it was a sheer drop from there below. From the left came a stream of water, and this plunged in a fall, perhaps a hundred feet high, into a basin of rock which was as round and perfect as a washbowl. From the edge of this basin the water poured over in another fall into a second basin of the same sort, and from there the water ran in a white, broken stream in rapids which extended in the bottom of the valley to beyond where I stood. An old water mill stood beside the second basin, and hills shut in the valley just a few hundred yards beyond. Had I fallen over the edge of the table rock I would have dropped into the rocky rapids. "My third peril was at the hands of a pock- marked lieutenant of the Pinkerton Force, who was guarding thA railroad yards at the Port Johnstone Coal Docks at Bayonne during the great coal handlers' strike in 1887. For some reason he had taken a great dislike to me, and when I sought to enter the yard to see his captain he stopped me. I want to see the captain,' I said. 'He is not here,' he said.' 'He is,' I answered. 'I see him there,' pointing to the man I wanted a hundred yards down the track. '"Get out of here!' he exclaimed, and dropped his hand to the hiit of his revolver. "I stepped back two feet to the Ime between the track* which marked the edge of the yard, and stood facing him. Hit hand worked on the hilt of the piitul, and avow moment I on. < pected him to draw and ire. A boy had been wantonly shot only a few days before by a Pinkerton man at Weehawken, and other acts of violence had been committed by these men. We faced each other for perhaps five minutes, during which time I expected every moment to be my last, but I had no feeling except one of curiosity to aee what he could dare to do. Finally he turned and walked away, and I also left. Two years later I met one of his men to whom I had done some slight favour. 'That Lieutenant meant to kill you that day,' he said. 'Yes, I knew it,' I replied. 'So did 1,1 he said, 'and when he dropped his hand to his pistol pocket I lowered my Winchester rifle into position, and if be had drawn his pistol I meant to send a Winchester rifle bullet through him.' "My last deadly peril was from typhoid fever but, unlike maiy such oases, I had been sen- sibly ill only a few days wlen the crisis came. and I had hardly lost any of my physical vigour. One day the doctor came, and, taking my wrist, stood beside my bed for many minutes feeling my pulse. I had been in bed but three days, but I knew that I was despe- rately ill. With the coctor's finger on my pulse I could feel its beatings, and I wondered why the doctor stood there so long holding my wrist. Then I becaai? aware that the pulse was gradually failing, and that probably death was near. I became as much interested in followioa tÀ8 •▼ideaoe of my beat's waskiag as the doctor could have been, and the only thought which I re-call was one of much the same sort of curiosity as filled my mind when I was waiting for the drawing of the Pinkerton man's revolver. Slowly my pulse faded away, beating at longer intervals and with less strength at each pulsation, and, although my mmd seemed as clear 88 ever, I thought of nothing but this, and otherwise felt as if I were simply sinking into a delicious sleep. By and bye the pulse ceased entirely. Still the doctor held my hand. and his thoughts and mine were concentrated upon the question of whether it would return. "I had no sense of care as to whether it returned or not. By and bye it did return; first one pulsation, then another at a long inter- val, and then another and another, each at a shorter interval and each stronger than the laet. Perhaps it was half an hour afterwards, I do not know, when the doctor laid my hand down and started to go away. While my pulse re- turned I seemed to wake graduaily from my lethargy, and when the doctor started away I was as full of life as ever I was. 'What am I to do for myself ?' I asked him. 'Nothing,' he replied. Afterward he told me that persons of my temperament seldom re- covered from typhoid, and that he had expected me to die as he held my hand. The moment the pulse returned he knew I was safe, and he did not return to treat me. "I have been nearly drowned, run over, and run away with by horses, and had some other narrow escapes, but these were the only occa- sions when I faced death when I had time to think about my peril, and the reoolleotion of my feelings at theee times does not bring to 'me anything ol horror."
Quips and Cranks. "Do you think," said the lady who was shopping, "that anybody would steal this umbrella if I were to leave it for a few minutes?" "Really, madam," replied the olerk, "I ehouldn't like to venture aa opinion without first examining the umbrella." "Georgy cried himself to sleep last night." "What was the matter?" "He ate dinner with Bobby Tompkins, and when he came home he found that we had strawberries, while they had only stewed rhurbarb." "You," said the man, "are not so hot." The cucumber, thus rudely addressed, man- aged to remain cool, and replied: "And you are not so many as you might be." Then to sustain his premise, it doubled the man up. Four-year-old Barbara went to church with her two sisters and came home crying. "What is the matter, dear?" inquired the mother. "He preached a whole s-sermon—about—M- Mary and Martha," sobbed Barbara, "and -never said-a w-word about me." "When you see two men constantly togetber," observed the ready-made philosopher, "it is safe to assume that they like each other." Taking his cue from the philosopher's tone the accomplished listener inquired: "And how about two women?" "In that case," responded the philosopher, with an appreciative smile, "you may know 'that thwro afraid of aaeh other." "Well," aid the Greek general glumly, "we have learned a lesson." "Yee," was the reply. "The thing I'm afraid of is that it's going to be a long time before we get another ohanoe to recite." "Now, said the man who was making arrangements to insure his houm and its con- tents, "before I go any farther in this matter I want to know one thing. Is there any way in whidh the tax assessors can have access to your books 1" "None, whatever," the agent replied. "Then write me out a policy for JB2,000 on the house and another for £1,500 on the con- tents." The fact that he paid taxes on JBXM worth of real estate and B100 worth of personal property might Trnve indicated that fie knew his business, or it might have indicated something else. 'I am trying a new brand of shaming eoap, sir," remarked the barrber. "How does it seem to go?" "It's rather betteh than the kind you've been using lately," said the customer. "Seems to aoften up the beard better, doesn't Lt?," "Yes, and then it's a change. I was gettmg tired of the taste of sassafras." Tommy: What kind of a shop is that one, papa, where they have three ooloured glasa jars in the window? Papa: That's an apothecary shop, Tommy. Tommy: And that place next door to it that has three balls in front of it! I Papa (with & aigh): Oh, that's a faypotftecary stop. Tommy t "Young Brown asked for Martha's hand to-day," said the old gentleman thoughtfully. "I'm afraid he won't do," returned the old! lady with a shake of her head. "He', of good family," suggested the eld gentleman. "Of oouree," admitted the old lady, "I know perfectly well that he is a very estimable young man, but you know bow girls are about such things. I don't thiuk he stands very well with: Martha." "What's the matter?" "Oh, just one of those girlish fancies that we don't think much of, but that oount a good deal with a young girl." "Such as what?" "Why, die doesn't think his best bicycle record is quite up to her standard." "George, I wish you'd leave tihis little package at the express office." "Me carry a bundle? I guess not.
