Rullroasjl Accident Two nkeii KtlletV (
Hsrrlrfburg, Aug. 16. .'
A twrlble accident happened Satfjtiay
morning at foor O'clock do tbe Schuylkill
and Susquehanna Railroad. Tbe Buffalo
Express of tbe Northern Central Railroad
left bore at 3 AS, and when at Danpbin
Narrows struck a rock three feet la diame
ter and 1,600 pounds in weight, wbtek bad
rolled down the mountain. Tbe rock drag
ged witb tbe train thirty teet, when the
engine left tbe track and shot over a stone
wall fifteen feet high into a country road
and thence through another stone wall into
the Pennsylvania Canal. The engine ad
tender and three express cars, loaded prin
cipally wltb peaches, were mashed to atoms.
One passenger ear, well filled witb patten
gars, was tamed Into the wreck, but no
passengers were killed, although tome were
(lightly injured. Only two perso.ni were
killed. Charles W. Stewart, or Baltimore,
engineer, and Jacob Cristman, of Reading,
fireman, who was terribly mutilated and
blackened. The baggage master, whose
car went into the canal, was only slightly
bruised, went on with a new train. Tbe
engineer died one bour alter the accident,
after Buffering excrutiating pain. The fire
man was killed instantly. Tbe corroner's
jury rendered a verdict attnebing no blame
lo the Northern Central Railroad or its
employees, they having but paid for the
right of way over tbe road, but censuring
severely the Schuylkill and Susquehanna
Co, for not having watchmen at that point,
whicb has'long been considered ene cf tbe
most dangerous on tbe road, owing to over
Ranging rocks. Tbe damage to tbe express
company is large.
' Last Saturday, as a train camo around
a curve on a bigb trestle weat of Big Run
near Marietta, a woman was suddenly die'
covered walking on tbe track, and she as
suddenly saw the train, and seeing ber iin.
minent clanger dropped between tbe ties.
holding herseil suspended by her arms
around a tie until it passed over her. The
train was checked till she was seen to
climb up again safely. Sbe looked like a
woman a little past middle age and didn't
scream, but went to work to save herself
in a thorough business like manner.
The Davenport Gazette has tho following
Item: "Chatting witb aa aged lady we
noticed tho wonderful preservation and
beauty of her teeth, and could not refrain
from mentioning it. 'Yes, said Bne, 'I nev
er had tbe toothache or lost a tooth, because
I bit the snake.' Oa inquiry, she slated
that when children at homo, ber father bad
mode Hem bite a lattlctDuLe,
be holding tbe reptile by the head and tall,
each child bit along tbe entire length of the
backbone, not violently, but just so as to
indent the akin, and this was considered an
iofallable receipt against toothache and de
cay, and which tbe old lady believes in to
the present hour."
