SELECTED STORY. From Cassell's Magazine. Men who Face Death. THE POLICEMAN. Don’t you go and make any mistake! The pictures in the comic papers, aud all the rest of the jokes about policemen, may all be very well in their way, and I can laugh myself at a good joke at the expense of the force, but for all that there is not as much in them as some of the would-be sharp ones make out. Most cf ’em are as stale as they well can be, and though for anything 1 know they may have been to the point sometime, they am t now a-days, not by a long way. 1 here s a saying about life not being all beer and skittles, and you may take my word for it that life ain’t all cupboard courtship for a policeman. Even if he had the inclination for it, his superiors would take precious good gooi care that he didn’t spend liis time on duty making love to cooks aud feeding in gentlemen's kitchens. That may he very well in a pantomime, but it’s about as much the real thing as panto mime lish and carrots are; and, whatever peo ple may think, policemen don’t always come up just when a light is over, and it isn’t only women and little boys that they collar—I should like to see some of them that talk that way have to tackle some of the customers that we have to do; they’d mighty soon alter their tone, I expect. Why, taking it all through, there’s few businesses as arc more risky than a policeman’s. In plenty of neigh borhoods he goes on duty with his life in liis hand. People read and talk about the danger ous classes, hut it is the policeman that has to deal with ’em, and it’s him as knows how dangerous they are. They know whether it’s only women or boys ihat we collar; they kuow who lays them by the heels, and they remember it, with a vengeance. ‘’Revenge is swoo. u a motto with a good many of them, and when they are loose they will often go a long way to have it on the man that has been the means of caging them—that was how I came by the gash you see on the side of my face here. I had got a customer two years for stealing lead, and I was one of those that escorted him to the van after he was sentenced, and as we passed along he growls out to me under his breath, “You’ve scored this chalk, but you may lay any odds that I'll score the next if I have to die for it.” I could tell that he meant what he said, and I bore it in mind. When he was out again I kept well on my guard whenever I saw him lurking about, but at length lie was too sharp for me. One rather foggy night I was passing the top of a dark side-street, when hearing a rush I wheeled round as quickly as I could—but it was too late.I just caught sight of thescoundrel making a swinging hit at me with a bottle tied in a handkerchief, aud the next instant I was stretched senseless. I shall carry the mark of the blow to the grave with me, as you may see, and It was pretty nigh carrying me to the grave; I was within half an inch of death, as you may sav, tor if it had been half an inch more on the tem ple it would have have an end of me. As it was, it laid me up for about three months, but beyond marking me, it did me no perma nent harm. vvnon l got on duty again i saw notning, but made up my mind that there should be a third chalk to the game between me and the fellow that struck the blow. He had bolted as soon as he had done it, and hadn’t been heard of since; but for all that I felt quite sure he would turn up in his old lurk again sooner or later, for his wife and all his com panions were there. So I watched and watch ed, and sure enough at the end of a couple of years I spotted him again. I found out that he had only been back a week when I caught sight of him, and so I didn’t try to flutter the nest too soon. I let three mouths go by, so that he might think lie was all right, and that! I went in to score my next chalk. I reported him, and half a dozen of us were told-off to take him. Three went into the house alter him, two kept watch in the front, and I took my stand at the back, the way lie was likeliest to come if lie managed to make a run of it. As it turned out, he did make a run, or at any rate he got a s!art. It was alow built house, and before those who went in could get upstairs he dropped out of the bed-room window, coming down safely on his feet; but before lie could take to his heels I was lacing him, my right hand holding my staff ready-drawn behind my back my left hand ready to collar him. “Oh, it’s you, is it?” he grines out be tween his teeth, and before I could say a word or move an inch, he had whipped out a large clasp-knife. I could see muwier in his eye, and so I dashed in at once to seize him; but before I could lay hold of him lie had gashed my hand to the bone—and then it was my turn. He was drawing back to make a running stab at me, when, quick as lighten ing, and with all the strength I could put in to it, l swung round my right arm and caught him with the stall full iu the face, felling him like a bullock. He was quite senseless, and by the time the others got round I had him quietly handcuffed. When we got him to the station we sent for a doctor to dress his wound, but he wouldn't have it touched, and insisted upon being taken into court next morning with his face ail marked; but though he certainly looked horrible enough, lie didn’t make anything by his move. He was well known, and besides, though I struck with a will, 1 struck in self-defence, and for life. He had penal servitude, and he didn’t live to do his timeout. That is the sort of customer a policeman has sometimes to tackle, and he never knows the day or hour lie may have to tackle. Men as are wanted will generally come quiet enough, when they find they are fairly drop ped upon; but still you can never be quite certain of them; if the drink or ibe evil is in them at the time, they may take it into their heads to show fight, and when they do they’re not particular to trifles—the first thing that comes handy they'll use. But, as I said be fore, it’s when they go in for being revenged on you that they are most dangerous. It isn’t a case of fighting then; they don’t give you the chance to fight; they creep upon you—in the dark for choice—and are up to all sorts of cruel, cowardly ways of laming a man. Many a fine man has been made a cripple for life, in doing or for having done his duty as a policeman, and sonic havebeen killed outright. Then see how a policeman has to go into a row, and lake his chance of what may hap pen from interfering with wild or drunken men with their blood up; again, see how he has to go into a house where “murder!” h being shouted, and where perhaps the first thing that meets his sight is a man more than half-mad, and slashing right and Jett with a poker. Then there is being at fires, and be ing cut in all sorts of weather, so that what with one thing and what with another, a policeman’s is both a hard job and a risky one. If there’s any one as thinks as it ain’t risky, just let’em ask any policeman’s wife as cares for her husband how often she has lain awake, fearing something might happen to him, when he’s been on night duty in a bad quarter! What class of criminals are the most dan gerous for a policeman to have to deal with ? Well, I hardly know; the regulars, the “habitual criminals,” as they are called, are much of a mnehness. A sneaking thief may turn Turk upon yon, while a burglar or garottcr, as you might think likely to show fight, will often let himself be took as quietly as a lamb. The chance cases are often rough once. A mad-drunk sailor ain’t a nice customer to handle, and a mad drunk soldier—especially when he takes to the belt—is a decidedly nasty one; and sometimes your swindling clerk, or abscond! ing bankrupt, will show his teeth—pull out a pistol, or pick up a decanter or a chair, and talk of knocking your brains out if you lay a band on him; though of course we do Jay hands on ’em for all that. If you dash in boldly at them they generally knock under. Coiners used to be about the worst, but there's not many about now. There is one customer, however, as is more likely than not to make a tight of it before he’ll be taken, and as is generally a tough one to fight, and that is the escaped convict. It’s generally a des perate hand that docs manage to escape, and one that’s dreadfully fond of his liberty, and that knows that if he is took again he may bid a long good-bye to it. A gentleman of that stamp gave me the stiffest tussle I ever had, and the one I’m proudest of, for I fought him fair, and took him single-handed. 'When he made his escape lie got clear away, and he had sense enough not to hark back to his old London haunts, while the search was hot; but about a year afterwards he did venture back, and I accidently got wind of its I knew that there were five pounds for any one who took him, and I had a pretty good idea that the Governor ef the prison lie had broke out of would stand something more; but more than all that, I—well, I may as well say it; I had not been long in the force at the time, and I wanted to show that I had something in me; and so, though I could have asked for help, I made up iny mind to try to take him by myself. I w as twenty-seven at the time, stood five foot eleven, weighed twelve stone—good fighting weight—and, though I say it that shouldn’t the convict! escaped or unescaped, didn’t breathe that I feared to tackle single-handed. It was not of the man himself that I was afraid, though I knew he was a Tartar; wliat made the job so risky was the danger of be ing set upon by the whole of the gang to which he belongs, and who always went about together, and would, I knew, think nothing of murdering a policeman. I waited up?andtMt0JfCwhat, chanee turn the gau»w,n^\°n,e afternoon I heard that were sp?eefne wkvffi Up iSOme sailors> and some little dfstan,'.,, f‘em ln a I>ublic house and thinking^o'myseiffw1? r •re,gular. '?rk; enough without tindine*™1 Jnigbt walt '°ug nity, I determined to try mv r opporlu‘ then, and down to this pubflc house invent There was no one then particular in the bar, and so I passed through to the back, ami there ill a shut-in skittle alley I caught sight of the gang, eight in number, and with three sailors in tow. I felt qualmish, but I knew that it wouldn’t do to give way to that feeling, and so seeing my gentleman there in the midst as large as life, I put on my boldest lace, bounced into the alloy, and shutting the door, placed my back against it. Though the gang were taken by surprise, they acted cleverly enough; they didn’t know which of them might he wanted, and not one of them said a word or moved an inch, hut I noticed my man pick up a beer pot and make a pie tence of sipping at it, though 1 csuld sec easy enough that his real move was to he ready to fling it at my head if it should turn out that he was the man wanted. I caught his eye, and in an off liandod tor.c said. Gb, yon know it's you I’ve come for,then; but take my advice, don’t do anvthing in the pot-throwing line. It will only make things worse for you, for the house is surrounded, and there are men enough in reserve to take a houseful of you.” ‘T shall make it death or glory this time,” he answered, “and so here goes;” and as he spoke the words he threw the pot as hard as he could, and then made a dash for a window at the end of the alley. The pot just skim med my ear, and then I was on to him like a panther, and dragged him back just as he got about halfway out of the window. I downed liitr, and had all but mastered him, when one of the gang, that had popped out as soon as my back was from the door, came runuing hack to tell the others that it was all gam mon about there being a reserve. This was enough for them. Without another word said, they made a rush towards me; and, though I still held my man, my heart grew cold, and a prayer flashed through my mind, for I felt that I was face to face with death. I knew that they’d stick at nothing, and that the very same gang had kicked a man to death only a few months before. But I was in luck. I would have called to the sailors for help, hut they looked helplessly drunk, and two of e’m was, but the third,Jas it happened, was only half-seas over. He was a big lump of a fellow, a Yankee mate, as I knew afterwards, and about as cocl and bold a card as there well could be. As they sprang forward, so did he, and whipping out a revolver, says he, in an aggravated sort of way, “Gentlemen, fair play is a jewel, and I like to see it respec ted—and so I will. They are man to man, and pretty fairly matched, and if the officer can take him, he shall.” Whether or not he would have fired at them, they must have be- i lieved so, for they slunk hack. All the same they had done a good thing for their mate. | While this had been going on I had, with out knowing it slackened my hold, and my man, putting out all his strength in a sudden move, threw me off, and got on to his feet, and before I could close with him again, had drawn a life preserver. He made a dash at me with it, and aimed a crushing blow at my head. Fortunately it only reached my shoulder, but even there it was a crippler for the time being, for I felt my arm drop useless at my side. He staggered a bit from partly missing his blow, and before he could recover himself I was alongside of him, and he went over like a ninepin, and held up his hands to have his bracelets put on. It was only about two minutes’ job alto gether, but it was a mighty tough one, I can tell you, and a dangerous one, too; and what I say is, that when people talk about police men, they should remember that they never know the day nor hour when, in the way of duty, they may have to tackle a j ob in which their life is at stake.
