Two Trains Collide and a Third
Crashes Into Them.
Batavia, N. Y., Sept. 30.—8 y a
j wreck on the Lehigh Vallhy road,
about a mile and a half east of
here this morning, Brakeman
Kimball was killed and Engineer
Dennis McCarthy fatally injured.
Eastbound freight, No. 540,
stopped on the main line at Niag
ara, just where the Lehigh con
nects with the “peanut” branch of
the New York Central, probably
to cool a hot journal. While
standing on the main line a double
header, also eastbound, came
thundering up behind and crashed
into the rear of the standing train,
piling up the cars for a quarter of
a mile along the tracks. Just then
a westbound train came along and
added to the devastation by jam
ming into the derailed cars.
The wind was blowing a gale and
some of the cars caught fire. The
fire resisted all efforts to extin
guish it for hours. The wreck is
very costly. It is remarkable that
no trainmen were injured.

home of Mr and Mrs. J. F. Hay
good, in Erath county, Tex . Sept.
18th, 1896, and took from them
their darling little daughter, Alma,
aged about nine years.
She had been sick a long time
and suffered greatly, but she is
gone where all her suffering are
over, where death has lost its
power. O how it broke the heart
of loved ones, to hear that little
one say, “We all have to die, and
lam going to die before I get
well ” And sure enough she did.
She is now in that bright world
where her three little infant sisters
has gone before.
She was a bright and loving
child and those who know her
most, loved her best. I will say
to parents, brothers mid sisters
weep not, for her loss is your eter
nal gain, and may it be inetru

fold of Christ, so you can meet in
Heaven, where the missing link
can be re-united into one unbroken

The Only Known Venomous Bird.
New Guinea is the home of the

known to the student of ornithol

In fact no antidote fur the bite of
the creature is known. A wound
from its beak causes excruciating

Is the Sun Burning Up?
Thousands of curious and in
genious theories have been ad
vanced to account for the effect
that the sun, although he has
whirled his burning disc across the
heavens for untold ages, continues
to burn without being consumed,
or his bulk being lessened in the
least. Some, of our most learned
astronomers believe, or pretend to
believe, that the great orb is a ball
of gas, but ©ven a great globe of
gas would be consumed to its ut
most atom in the course of a few
thousand years. Others say that
fires are kept up by the burning of
the remains of wrecked worlds
which are constantly falling into
its mysterious, burning- d.pHre
But even this ■"aSems far more
probable, and those who take an
opposite view declaring that it is a
monstrously absurd conclusion.
In summing up his opinion on the
last conclusion, one of the "most
eminent astronomers of the day :
has figured that a mountain range .
consisting of 176 cubic miles could i
fall into the sun and yet not fur-;
j nish fuel enough to keep up the ;
1 present rate of heat for a single 1
second; and that a mass equal to
! our earth would only furnish heat
for 93 years. If these conclusions
’ are correct we may well ask : Os

Confusion in the Silver Camp
Over the Prospect.
Nashville, Oct. I.—A special to
the American from Atlanta, Ga ~
I says: Tom Watson is at his room
at the Kimball House, surrounded
by a phalanx of populistic breth
ren. tonight and is shut out from
the rest of the world so absolutely
that all efforts to get from him
anything about his movements or
intentions has proved unavailing.
The air of mystery that surrounds
him has perhaps been in a measure
responsible for the many rumors
that are afloat. Those have taken
definite shape in the statement
that he is certainly going to with
draw from the populist ticket in
disgust, Tom will neither affirm
or deny this rumor. He is as
dumb as the proverbial oyster.

Its Support From Watson.

The People’s Tribune, owned by
Capt. R. F. Kolb, father of the
populist party in Alabama, is out
today in a long editorial in which
it withdraws its support from Wat

congress and throws it to Bryan

to throw his support to the silver

turned to the house, sat down in a
chair and immediately expired.
According to an Indianapolis
paper the examination of the body
of a farmer killed by lightning
near Kokomo, Ind , early this week
has revealed a curious effect of the
bolt. Nearly every bone in the
min’s body was shattered and re
duced to small splinters without
burning or lacerating the flesh.
The horse which he was driving at
the time, though instantly killed
by the same bolt, remained stand
ing; and the beast’s bones, joints
and muscles were made perfectly
rigid by the fatal shock.
The latest swindling game was
practiced successfully the other

to bet a gold double eagle that if
he hammered the coin into a shape
less mass it would still be worth

by the silver advocate, but when
it came to selling the lump to Jew

James Haggerty, a strong sound
money advocate who stood by and
