IT is quite dark, and there is a damp wind whispering about our ears as we trudge home through the mud, you and I. The way seems long, because the wind keeps bothering both of us, flicking at coat and mackintosh and threatening to carry our hats away every now and then in a wilder gust than usual. It is a relief when we come to the white gates that guard the railway crossing and have to stop there for a minute, finding them shut. There is no way of getting through unless we climb them, for even the signalman, whom we see moving about in his box high overhead, could not open them while his signals are down, for gates and signals are interlocked. So we stand there in the whispering night with only the yellow gleam from the cabin to break the darkness around ; nostay-there is another light away down the line, a green one, a beautiful clear green like a steady, un-winking cat's eye.
