who know that George Gleason the fa express messenger of tho P C St L Koad was a somnambulist His strange freaks performed during a som trance were known to a small circle of irionda and associates who men them uot when our hero wag ap pointed tho position he was destined to lill with honor For two ran liis car without incident no train robbers attacked it and lie became tho favorite messenger of tho road Strange to say that during the time while he dozed often in his car he did not once fall into tho somnambulistic aud he was congratulating himself that the singular trances had left him al together when occurred the incident I to relate Mis downward rnn on the night express from Coshocton to Springfield a distance of one hundred and eighty miles There wero few stations of im on the route nnd the train made but throe halts between tho two The officers of the road were at the date of our and still are careful men of business jealous of their and gentlemen of integrity When robberies became common on other roads the of tho P C St L wero siiro to receive orders commanding precaution and it was to the obedience of these orders that much of the popularity of the road was attrib Helio exclaimed one evening while over the col of tho Cleveland the ex press car of tiro C C I C robbed of Thats a good haul Why dont the cnr thieves try my car Hero Ive been on the road for two years and never ior a moment has thu safety of a dollar in 1113 safes been jeopardized Ho considered himself ono of the luck iest messengers iu the country and with thu paper iu his hand stepped into tho express car which a moment later moved out of Coshocton It was a beautiful autumn evening and tho messenger sat at the open aide door enjoying a cigar until the sun went down aud darkness fell over the earth Then lie shut tho door lighted tho lamps and saw that everything was safe Ho know the value of tho contents of tho companys and he thought what a haul would make if they Would successfully burglarize his car on the pres ent trip V But ho folt secure for lie dropped into liis own chair and fell asleep Thu train had arun of fortynine miles before the messenger would again bo to service and lie thought of this perhaps when he into the chair resolved upon a doze he rose and his eyelids parted Ho walked directly to the safes which side by side and opening the combination locks thew wide tho burglar proof Then ho took forth valuable package after package until lie had emptied tho strongholds of their treas ures It is safe to say that Gleason deprived the safes of money and other valuables within the aggregate of After doing this ho closed the doors and with the packages walked out of tho car to the lender It was filled with coal black and grim rind the heavy smoke of the engine tho toy of the smart breeze blowing boat against his face But ho did not to heed it for he tender with one hand and deliberately secreted tho packages among the coal in ono corner Having accomplished this singular task he returned to the express car washed his hands which had been begrimed by the Jumps of coal and retired to his chair his eyes closed and ho a sleeping man Georgo Gleason had robbed the safes in a state of somnambulism and their iron doors guarded the messengers book and a few old papers of little value He slept for half an hour longer when T tl 11 tho door it you saw that pleading would avail him naught There was stern determina tion iu tho robbers tone death in tho depths of the black ayes He had read of such burglaries how cashiers wero made to open of their own bunks aud throw thousands at the feet of robbers He never that such an event would happen iu express car No 50 much less would be compelled to assist iti robbing tho patronizing But ho was at the mercy of tho villain and his life waa in startling jeopardy Ho came forward with palo face and stood be fore the safes Bo lively about it said ono of tho men You know tho locks liko a book and wo know how to treat a man who obeys our orders with alacrity Wa give you two in which to wort If at that time the doors do not swing open the P C at L will lose messenger The imperiled man did not reply but fell to work on the locks The combina tion was quite intricate but Gleason was familiar therewith and in less than a min utes time he opened the first door Now for tho package of tho J The messenger put forth his hand un locked an inner door and started aghast The money part of the safe was empty Whats up Gleason exclaimed a mask looking at the messenger with as Gleason pointed to the empty recep tacle almost too amazed to speak nnd tho robbers strange glances Open the other safo commanded one The messenger obeyed It too was moneyless George Gleason we want no You know where the money is How know cried the mes senger mystified more than the robbers Did I know that you were coming and secrete the matter If BO who betrayed you 1 Hero are my books look at them for yourself I swear to you that there was worth of express matter in tho safes havent left tho though I have dozed but liko the cat A howerer soft will rouso me You ask mo where the money is I throw the question back at yon Upon pain of death I could not toll you men wo left Coshocton I car for one moment said ceased aud This beats the foremost robber me I believe you lie and his eyes action was to consult his watch His first Were approaching Graf ton he said to himself and drow another cigar from his pocket for a quiet smoke A few minutes lator tho of a del f lunar filled tho car and the mes senger was half enveloped in smoke Grafton was yet nineteen miles away All at once Gleason heard his name pronounc ed and turned quickly in hia chair He his fet George Somebody has robbed the safes before we struck They did it while you slept Will you slacken tho speod of tho train The messenger pulled the and the speed of tho train to di minish Now good night Gleason said tho disappointed moving to tho slid ing door Wo hope the company wont discharge you for sleeping at your post Of course we aro disappointed wo ei to make a big haul tonight The next moment they sprang from tho car and the messenger heard a prolonged whistle Then he saw tho moving nnd tho train fast returned to its usual speed Ho fell back into his chair completely mystified Ho could not imagine who had robbed the safes whoso empty pockets stared at him of tho car His thoughts were suddenly by tho conductor who bounded into his They did it eh Money all gono Curse the fiends they had a man on each platform masked and armed How much did they get Not n dollar said Glenaon Tho conductor looked at tho safes and then at the man whom he to re gard mad Whero is the money then I dontknow The stopped and as the mes senger had told his story search for tho packages began It camel to an abrupt and happy termination The engineer placed tho lost valuables into Gleasons hands Bob the fireman saw you climb on to tha coal iu tha
