A Passenger Train Telescoped in
a Tunnel and Many Killed.
CONDON, Sept. 16.-A frightful
accident occured to day.*The
Great Western Railway was the.
scene of the disaster in a tunnel
near Bath, 13 miles southeast of
An express train from Bristol to
London, while running at a high
rate of speed through the tunnel,
was derailed and as the doors of
English railway coaches are al
ways locked it was impossible for
the passengers to jump.
They were-panic stricken and
semi darkn?ss a^dded to their
terror. Suddenly, above the noise
made by the engine of the derailed
train and grating and grinding of
coaches, the sound of an approach
ing train was heard. It was the
passenger train bound for Bristol j
and running Very fasti Its engineer j
saw the obstruction, but before he
could act his train dashed into the
derailed coaches, breaking them
up as if they were made of card
Tho scene that ensued almost I
defies description. The hiss and
roar of escaping steam mingled
with shrieks of the injured andi
groans of the dying. As the train [
lights were extinguished the tunnel
was as dark as midnight and it
was impossible to see any distance.
Some of the bodies were mangled
hey on d recognition.
Many passengers were thrown
against the side of the tunnel,
where the bodies were literally
crushed into jelly by th3 tremend
ous weight. Many when reached by
the rescuers begged the doctors |
piteously to kill them. Many wo
men aud children are among the
Alcohol in the Tropics.
Mrs. Mary Clement Leavit, who
has large experience in traveling
in hot climantoSjSays of the use of
alcohol in-the tropics:
"At 55 years of age, having pass
ed'most of my life in New England
up to that date and having been a
total abstainer all my life, I first
entered tropical lands. Thence to
the present time, seven years, I
have been the greater part of the
time in tropical climate?. India.
Birmah, Madagascar, ;west coast
of Africa, from the Congo to Sierra
Leone, Brazil, are among the coun
tries I have visited and in which
I have remained some months each,
It has always been safe not to
touch anything alcoholic. I have
never ! aken a drep even as medi
cine. Alcoholic drinks are especilaly
deadly in hot climates. Every
where I have found total abstainers
less liable to fevers, bowel com
plaints, rheumatism and other
diseases than those who- use
alcoholics even in moderation. I
one town in India, I remember, an
English couple were the only white
persons exempt from malarial
fevers during a three years' resi
dence, and they were the only
abstainers in the place. Alcohol is
a poison and acts quicker within
the tropics than elsewhere."
Silence is an evidence of power.
All great forces work silently. It is
only the-energy of little things
which expends itself in noise and
violence. The power which carries
millions of worlds through millions
of miles of spece is as noiseless as
the drifting of a bit of thistledown ;
whereas the engine which crushes
a fragment of rock in a cornor of
the universe sends its vibration in
sound waves through the in
estimable expanse of ether.
So it is with human lives. It is
Weakness and smallness that make
most of the clamor in the world.

How to Get 2,500 Dolars
The Winner Has a Clear Gif t of
a Small Fortune, and the Losers
Have Patents that may Bring
Them lu Still more.
Would you like to make twenty-five
hundred dollars? If you would, read
carefully what follows and you may
see a way to do it^
The Press Clams Company devotes
much attention to patents. It has
handled thousands of applications for
inventions, but it would like to handle
thousands more. There is plenty of
inventive talent at large in this coon
try, needing nothing but encourage
ment to produce pratical results. That
encourgement the Press Claims
Company proposes to give.
NOT SO HARD AS IT SEEMS.
A patent strikes most people as an
appallingly formidable thing. The idea
is that an inventor mnst be a natural
genius, like Edison or Bell ; that he
must devote years to delving in
complicated mechancial problems and
that he must spend a fortune on
delicate experiments before he can
get a new device to a patentable de
gree of perfection. This delusion the
company desires to dispel. It desires to
get into the head, of the public a clear
comprehension of the fact that it is
not the great, complex, and expensive
inventions that bring the best returns
to their authors, but the little, simple,
and cheap ones-the things that seem
so absurdly trivial that the average
citizen would feel somewhat ashamed
of bringing them to the attention of
Edison says that the profits he ha?
received from the patents on all his:
marvelous inventions have not b?en
sufficient to pay the cost ol' his ex
periments But the man who conceived
the idea of fastening a bit cf rubber
cord to a childes ball, so that it would
come back to the hand when thrown
made a fortune out of his scheme. Tli6
modern sewing machine is a miracle
of ingenuity-the product of the toil
of hundreds of busy brains through a
hundred and fifty years, but the whole
brilliant result rests upon the simple
device of putting the eye of the needle
at the point instead of at the other end.
THK LITTLE THINGS THK JIOST VALU
Comparatively lew people regard
themselves as Inventors, but ?almost
everybody has been struck, ?at one
time or another, with ideas that seemed
calculated to reduce some of the little
frictions of life. Usually such are ideas
dismissed without further thought.
. "Why don't the railroad company
make its car windows so that they can
be slid up and down without breaking
the passengers' backs?" exclaims the
traveler. "If I were runniLg the road
I would make them in such a way."
.'What was the man that made this
saucepan thinking of?" grumbles the
cook. "He never had to work over a
stove, or he would have known how it
ought to have been fixed."
"Hang such a collar button !" growls
the man who is late for breakfast "If I
were in the business Pd make buttons
that wouldn't slip out, or break ott', or
gouge out the back of my neck."
And then the various sufferers for
get about their l*rteW??i-l UHU ?t?gld1
to think of something eise. If they
would sit down at the next convenient
opportuni.y, put their ideas about car
windows, saucepans,and collar buttons
into practical shape, and then apply
for patents, they might find themselves
as independently wealthy as the man,
who invented the iron umbrella ring
or the one who. patented^the.fifteen
|A TEMPTING OFFER?
To induce people to keep Jtrack of
their bright ideas and see what there
is in them, the Press. Claims Company
has resolved to offer a prize.
To the person whs submits to it the
simplest and most promising inven
tlon, from a commercial point ol' view,
the company will give twenty-five
hundred dollars in cash, addition to
refunding the fees for securing the
It will also ?advertisej[the invention
free of charge.
This offer is subject to the following
conditions 35 ?wa
Every competitor must obtain ?
tent for his invention through thr
nipany. He must first apply for a
preliminary search, the cost of which
will be five dollars. Should this sea rrj
show his invention to be unpatentabN
he can withdraw without further ex
pense. Otherwise he will be expected
to complete his application and take
out a patent in the regular way. The
total expense, including Government
and Bureau fees, wi ll be seventy dollars.
For this, whether he secures the prize
or not, the inventor will have a patent
that ought to be a valuable property
to him. The prize will be awarded by
jury consisting of three reputable
patent attorneys of Washington. In
tending competitors should lill out the
following blank, and forward it with
their application :

Twenty-five hundred Dollar Prize
offered by the Press Claims Company.
?_ _ ?
NO BLANKS IN THIS COMrKTITION.
This ls a competition of rather an
unusual nature. It is common to offer
prizes for the best story, or picture, or
architectural plan, all the competitors
risking the loss of their labor and the
successful one merely selling his for
the amount of the prize. But the Press
Claims Company's offer is something
entirely different. Each person is
asked merely to help himself, and the
one who helps himself to the best ad
vantage is to be rewarded for doing it.
The prize is only a stimulus to do
something that would be well worth
doing without it. The architect whose
competitive plan fora club house
on a certain corner is not accepted has
spent his labor on something of very
little use to him. But the person who
patents a simple and useful device in
the Press Claims Company's competi
tion' need not worry If he fail to secure
the prize. Ile has a substantial result
to show for his work-one that will
command its value in the market at

For Inventions Procured by the
PRESS CLAIM COMPANY,
Equal with the interest of those having claims against the Gov
irnment is thal of INVENTORS, who often lose the benefit ef v?:ua
Dle inventions because of the incompetency or inattention of the at
:omeys employed to obtain their patents. Too much care cannot be
?xercif-ed in employing competent and reliable solicitors to procure
oatents, for the value of a patent depends greatly, if not entirely, upon
:ho care and skill of the attorney.
With the view of protecting inventors from worthless or careless
ittorneye, and of seeing that inventions are well protected by valid
patents, THE PRESS CLAIMS COMPANY has retained counsel
expert in patent practice, and is therefore prepared to
Obtain Patents, Conduct Interferences, Make Special Examinations

and Validity of Patents, Prosecute and

If you have an invention on hand, send THE PRESS CLAIMS
