Two Trains Collide on the East
TWO KNOINES SMASHED—MAH. AO EXT
Ill’UT AND 1‘ABSENOEKS SHAKEN UP
—AM. BECAUSf OE A MISTAKE
IX THE MATT EH OP TIME.
The morning train on the £. T. V.
R. R. collided this morning with the
oot going freight on the curve near
“The Point,” at the identical spot
where two other terrible nccidents
have occurred before.. The passen
ger train, under charge of Conductor
J. A. Kidson and Engineer Ed Mow
er, was one hour late, and .Tinning as
•ueb, was consequently entitled to
the track. The out going freight
was also behind time, going out un
der orders to proceed to Jcsup, and
was still in the “yard,” therefore had
As they rounded the curve they
discovered each.other. Breaks were
pot on, levers reversed, and engineers
and firemen ail launched forth into
the air with a leap for life. Scarcely
had they reached the ground when
the opposing elements met, and these
ponderous engines came together and
mounted high in tho air, after the
manner of wild I leasts.
After all had become still, an in
vestigation was made. It was found
that both engines were smashed—
the ireight engine, No. 23, literally
demolished, being driven up all in
one mighty heap. The passenger en
gine bad her front end driven iu and
other damago'done, but sbe was still
in pretty good shape.
Both engines were still on the
track or thereabout, and both trains
on the rails, except the for.emost car
of tho freight, which was badly bro
ken up. Tho passengers were all
badly shaken up, some worse than
others, but no one badly hurt. The
engineers and firemen having jumped
out, and made safe landings, were com
paratively unhurt. The mail agent
was thrown tho whole length of bis
car, and is a little soro over his ex
perience. The expressman, Mr
Partridge, however, did not fare so
well. Uis car being next to the en
gine lie found out before the other
officers that danger was ahead, rush
ed back through the baggage car
and gave the alurm, but so hurriedly
that no one understood him, reached
tho baek platform and made his leap
for life. When all was over lie was
hunted up und found suffering very
much from his wounds, lie was taken
bock to the sleeper and litter on cv

How it happened ! This the ques
tion that is hard to find out. Railroad
men, by their training, are taught to
keep their own counsel, and as a rule
they are “know nothings.”. Prom
outsiders we lagrn that the passenger
train was making lively time—prob
ably much faslerltban tbc ordinances
of the city allow. *The curve being
only a gradual one—unless paying no
attention to what was ahead, or else
running like wild-fire—the engineer
ought to have seen the out-going
freight in time to have stopped.
. Mr. W. L. Fulton hearing the
freight coming, and seeing the pas.
senger coming down from the old de
pot, tried to attract the attention
of the engineer and firemen of the
passenger train, but both seemed
busy doing something, so he failed
to stop them—and aboveyou have the
Both engineers claimed the track,
under their orders. Not being able
to secure these orders, we cannot
say who is to blame, beyond the fact
that tho engineer of the passenger
train waa traveling more than “four
miles per hour”—so the bystanders

The men and women of Dodge
county hove admirable demonstrated
this wedk’/wiist energy and determi
nation can do. Where a few weeks
ago only an old Held bounded by a
pine forest could be seen, there ' is
now n remarkable exhibit of farm re
sources and household handiwork.
On the grounds where two mohths
since rabbits burrowed and weeds
flourished, there now rests an excel
lent agricultural hall, and in its en
closure arc horses, cattle and hogs,
whoso fatness indicates that pros
perity dwells iu the homes of their
owners, and a thousand people,- are
admiring the industry and intelli
gence of tlto farmers of Dodge
On entering the enclosure ono first
notices a large, neat new building
with a sign board extending across
the front enscribcd thereon “Agri
cultural Hall," and in this hall on
nil sides is every kind of agricultural
products from a peanut to n large
cotton plant, filled witli tlie fleecy
staple. Here I saw specimens of
Dodge county’s rice that would do
creditJto the rice fields of Glynn and
McIntosh counties, and numerous
other articles such as oats, wheat,
corn, potatoes, sugar cane, peas,
fruits, (lowers, etc., all going to show
thatwant is a stranger in the homes
from which they came.
I noticed a stalk of corn contain
ing eight well-filled ears, some pota
toes weighing six pounds each, sugar
cane reaching nearly to the ceiling,
turnips as large as a man’s head,
pumpkins ns big as a wash pot, and
other wonders of the.farm in tbc
greatest profusion, all arranged to
■ the ladies’ department.
But it is the floral hall where the
most attractive features of the fair
are found. In jellies, preserves,
cakos, canned goods, needle work and
all those tilings which tend to make
pantries attractive or homes bcauti
ful, the ladies of Dodge county
have certainly illustrated themselves

The horse racing is very good, tnk
ing into, consideration that there is
no imported’ stock here—only the
horses of the six adjoining counties
being entered, anil, while they do not
get, around tho track in ns good time
as “Goldsmith Maid,” or tho famous
trotting horse “Dexter," stiil they
arc good stoppers and win the np-
plause and admiration of all. • ,

her effort, for there is no county in

than has been exhibited here this
week, and It was all sdonc through

Lights for Navigation.
Tlie question of the carrying of
lights and changes necessary for the
benefit of navigation and the avoid
ance of collisions, recalls to the New
Xork Times an incident that hap
pimed some years ago, when a Britisii
frigate, homeward bound, und an
American man-of-raan were lying nt
anchor in the same port. Tbo cap
tain nnd ofHceri of the English ves
sel were invited to dine on board tlie
American ship. The dinner was a
long, jovial affair and the toasts wore
frequent. Finally, about 10 o’clock
tho visitors were bundled into their
boats to return to tbeir vessel,'which
was to get under way as soon as all
were on board and the boats hoisted.
After a short interval the vessel was
scce to lie moving, and from the
American could lie heard q number
of Orders given to tbc helmsman,
first porting tbc helm and then hcav-
ing.it hard over the other way, re
peating the operation several times.

Inter one of the officers returned to

too many good-lives, they had neg

is called which all vessels hoist for
ward when at anchor—and. being
firmly convinced that it was tlie
light aboard some other ship, they
were shifting their vessel’s course in
vain endeavors to avoid it, and bring
