-Gay Crowd of Excursionists Meei
With Horrible Accident
A COLLISION SOUTH OF CHICAGO
Running at Forty Miles an Hour, a
Picnic, Train Plunged Into a
Freight Whicrr Was Backing on
to Another Track.
Chicago, ' Special.-Twenty persons
were killed aud about twenty-five
injured Wednesday night in a collis
ion on the Chicago & Eastern Illinois
Railroad, at Glenwood, 111., 23 miles
scuth of Chicago. The. collision oc
curred between a picnic train from
Chicago, -which was returning from
Momence, Ul., and a freight train, in
to the rear end of which the excur
sion train-dashed at high speed. The
picnic train was - coming north, and
the freight wa 3 on the southbound
track. A misplaced switch threw the
picnic, train on the south bound ti ?ck,
and before the engineer could apply
the breaks, it ran at forty miles an
hcur into the rear, of the freight.
The engine, baggage and several
coaches were demolished, and the in
jured were in two of the coaches.
The picnic was the annual outing
ol the members of Doremus. After
spending the day on the picnic grounds
at Momence the train load started on
the return trip, running in as the sec
ond section of the regular passenger
train, which is due in Chicago at 8:25
When the picnic train reached Chi
cago Heights, four miles beyond Glen
wood," where the accident took place,
it was- switched to the regular south
bound track, and although it was com
ing north, it was given a clear track
by the operator at Chicago Heights un
til it should reach Glenwood, four miles
away. The train, after leaving Chica
go Heights, gradually increased its
speed and when half the distance be
tween the two stations had been cov
ered, lt Was plunging'along at the rate
of 40 miles an hour. Just half way be
tween Chicago Heights and Glenwood,
there is a sharp curve. As the picnic
train tore around this on the south
track, a feright train was backing
from the south bound to the north
bound track. It was partly on. both
tracks, and no train could have passed
It in either direction. The bend is so
sharp that the engineer of the picnic
train did not see the freight until he
was almost on it. It was too late to
do. anything but set the brakes, but be
fore they could take effect the passen
ger train smashed into the freight at
full speed. The locomotive and the
baggage car of the passenger train
went through the freight an>l were pil
ed up in.a heap of wreckage on the
further side of the switch track.
" The first coach of the picnic train
plunged into the wreckage and buried
itself in a mass of kindling wood. Near
ly all of tne passengers in the first
coach were caught beneath the mass of
debris and it was here that the loss of
life occurred. The people in the rear
coaches were hurled from their seats
And many "of them were bruised, but
all of the' serious casualties occurred
hin-ihe first car. The uninjured passen
gers and-the trainmen at-k>nce hasten
ed to the relief of those who were
pinned under the wreckage. The
wreck was two miles from anywhere,
and much delay ensued before some
Di the injured, who were held down
by heavy timbers could be extricated.
Nothing could be done for them un
til lifting machinery came from Chica
go -Heights. The first train to arrive
at the wreck ?ame from Chicago
H -ights, and it-carried six physicians,
A short time afterward a second train
arrived from Glenwood, bringing ad
ditionel physicians and a number ot
nurses. Darkness had fallen and res
cue went on by the light of bonfires

Sketch of Ex-Senator Davis.
Henry Gassaway Davis, nominated
for Vice-president by the Democrats,
at St. Louis, was horn in Howard
county, Maryland. November 1G, 1823,
receiving only a country school educa
tion. At an early age he was left
fatherless, and was forced to begin
work for his own support, working on
a farm until 1343. For fourteen years
after that period he was in the employ
of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad,
working his way up from brakeman to
station agent at Piedmont, which 0>
now his home. Mr. Davis has one son
John T. Davis, of Elkins, Md., and
three daughters. Mrs. Stephen B.
Elkins, Mrs. R. M. C. Brown and Mrs.
Arthur Lee. His wife died in 1902.
He was formerly United States Senator
from West Virginia.
Evacuates New Chwang.
St Petersburg, By Cable.-Colonel
Novitsky, of the general staff, in au in
"The result of the loss of Kai Chou
will probably be the evacuation of
New Chwang. General Kuropatkin's
position is more difficult than that
which confronted Lord Roberts in
South Africa. It is as if Lord Roberts
received his supplies by rail via Con
stantinople, Cairo end Central Africa.
It. will be a long time before General
Kuropatkin will have enough supplies
and men to assume the offensive. In
the meantime he will have to fight rear
guard actions, perhaps giving up im
portant positions, like New Chwang,
which are of vastly more consequence
than Kai Chou."

as the Result of Stubbon Dis

for Unskilled Labori
Chicago, Special.-As the result ol
a stubborn disagreement, chiefly over
wages for unskilled labor, one of the
most extensive strikes :n the history
of the meat packing i .dustry began
Tuesday morning in Chicago, Kansas
City, Omaha, St. Joseph, Mo., and
other cities where large packing
plants are located. If prolonged the
strike is expected to cause wide
spread inconvenience, possibly equal
ing the anthracite coal famine of two
years ago. The unanimity of the
strike was complete. More than 45,
000 employes are directly involved.
In Chicago alone 18,000 men are cn
The effect of the strike upon the
food supply of the country and the
prices of meats is ueing earnestly dis
cussed, notwithstanding the announce
ment that the packing houses, con
trary to the somewhat' general expec
tation, will continue operations with
out any closed door, employing what
ever help may be obtained. How
much alleviation in the furnishing of
supplies to the public this course
may afford is a matter of wide vari
ation. Tho packers declare that hun
dreds of men who could not be providi
ed with places have been applying
daily for work.
TJie walk-out here was" started by
the employes of the killing depart
ments at various packing houses.
The killers ware followed by the
workers in other departments as fast
as current work left by the slaughter
ers could bo cleaned up. Thus as
the workers in each department dis
posed of the their part of the work
fhey threw off their aprons and de
parted. This consideration was shown
the packers, tho labor officials an
nounced, because it was not the de
sire of the men to cause the employ
ers any financial loss as a result of
neglecting meat that was on hand to
Watched by cordons of police, the
strikers filed briskly out of the pack
ing houses, carrying overalls, rubber
boots and knives, cleavers and steels.
The strikers were greeted by crowds
of women and children, many- oi
whom joined hands with the work
men on the outward march. What
ever the future may have in Gtore in
the way of riots, there .was absolutely
no sign of disorder.
A picturesque scene was presented
when the sausage factories and can
neries were left by their forces.
There are 1,000 girls employed in
these two departments of the m?at
industry. Clad in the variegated ga/b
of factory girls, this army of feminine.
strikers tripping along the thorough
fare of the stockyards, were roundly
cheered as they emerged through' the
gates and distributed themselves-in
the crowd of men who had. awaited
their coining. "We're with you to
the last," the girls exclaimed, smiling
as they stood around and talked over
the situation with their male com
panions in the movement.
Arthur Meeker, of Armour & Com
pany, said: "We consider the demand
ot tlie union for an advance in -wages
of unskilled labor entirely unwarrant
ed'by industrial conditions. We could
not concede it and proposed to submit
the rjuestion to arbitration, which: the
union declined to do and called a
strike today at all our plants. Every
department is kept running, however.
Wo have had applications from hun
dreds of unemployed men for posi
tions at iess wages than we have
been paying and every day expect to
increase our output." \
President Donnelly, the strike lead
er, said: "I wish to make it clear
that we are not fighting for an; in
crease of wages, but against a -j, de- !
crease. Our orisJnal demand was-- for
a minimum of 20 cents an hour( for
laborers. This demand was amended
after our second conference with! the
packers in June. We then agreed to
a" scale of lS^ cents an houV; except
in Omaha and Sioux City, where1 the
scale lis 19 cents. The packers- on
tho other hand, refused to pay more
than ny2 cents an hour and d?clin?e
- to sign any agreements at all except
with a small proportion of the work
men. The question of wages ? to
skilled men was not discussed.; To
unskilled workmen the average wage
was 18%; but when we asked that this
1 be made the minimum wage they cut
it to l"1/^ and 15 cents. A man could
live on 15 cents if he could get steady
work, but at some plants the men
have been able to make just 13 hours
a week at this wago scale. They
could not live on it. No on* could.
Another Wage Reduction.
Fall River. Mass., Special.-It wa?
practically settled that a general re
unction of wages in the cotton mills
of Fall River would be ordered to take
effect July 25. It is expected the pro
prosed reduction will average 12 1-?
per cent. More than 25,000 operatives
will bc affected.
The reduction is the second made
in Fall River within a year, the last
having been a cut of 10 per cent.
For nearly four months the mills have
been running on short time.

PALMETTO CROP BULLETIN
Conditions for the Growth of Crops
Have Been Favorable;
The week ending 8 a; m;, July 11th,
had a mean temperature of 81 degrees
vifhich is about i above normal, due
to very even night temperatures and
moderately hot days. The extremes
were ? minimum of 61 at Greenville on
the 5th, and a maximum of 99 at
Blackville and Y?massee on the 7th.
There were several local high winds
accompanying thunder storms, most
damaging in a phvt of Sumter county,
?he relative humidity was above nor
mal along the coast, and normal, or
below, iii the interior. The sunshine
was generally deficient.
There were frequent thunder storms
in the centrai and northeastern coun
ties throughout the week, and over the
extreme northwestern ones during the
closing days, with practically no n.in,
cr widely scattered light showers, in
the Savannah valley from Anderson
county southward to Hampton. The
weekly amounts ranged from "trace"
to over three inches. Over the great
er portion of the State the rainfall was
ample for all crops, and in parts of
Chesterfield, Darlington and Marlboro
countle? it was excessive to an injuri
ous extent. The moisture deficiency
appears to be most injurious in Green
wood, Saluda, -Barnwell and Hampton
counties, with many other localities
that are suffering. Additional reports
indicate that the hail storm of the 2nd
in Marion and York counties was more
destructive than at first indicated.
There were numerous hail storms on
the 7th, but they were destructive over
very small, widely separated areas
^ The week was generally favorable for
farra work and for laying by crops, ex
cept in the counties named as having
had excessive rains. As a rule crops
continue clean and well cultivated,
though some places report grassy and
In many parts of the State corn is
"firing" owing to insufficient moisture,
but where rains occurred the corn crop
continues very promising, especially
young corn on bottom lands.
The majoilty of the reports on cot
ton indicate further improvement, but
some deterioration is noted due to both
lack of moisture and excessive moist
ure, causing the plants to yellow, shed
their foliage and squares. Insects that
puncture squares and young bolls have
been noted in Greenville and Pickens
counties, by some thought to be boll
worms, by others to be boll weevils.
The plants are blooming freely in
places and bolls have been noted in a
few localities. Sandy land cotton is
better than that on clay soils, the lat
ter being unseasonably small. Sea Isl
and cotton has good color and growth
and is blooming freely.
Tobacco is very promising, with se
lecting and curing making fair prog
ress. The rains were very beneficial
to rice. Melons are ripening generally
and shipments are heavy. Stock wa
ter still scarce in places. Fruit is
scarce in the eastern counties s.nd plen
tiful in the western ones. J. W. Bauer,
Spartanburg, Special.-Henry Jones,
the negro who killed Constable C. W.
Jones near Easley, last Thursday night,
has been captured and is now in jail
at this place. Mr. F. A. Metcalf, of
Inman, caught the negro about three
miles east of that place about dusk
Sunday night and brought him here
?unday on the train. Chief of Police
Smith, of Easley, and Magistrate J.
ja: Jameson are in the city and state
that the feeling is very high against
the negro all through the counties of
Greenville and Pickens. Sheriff White
has refused to give the negro up to the
authorities of those counties on the
ground that the prisoner would not be
safe there. The negro, Jones, has ad
mitted his guilt since coming to this
place, although he protested his inno
cence when Mr. Metcalf arrested him.
There ia no danger nf lynching here
till the Governor returns and sends in
structions for the further keeping of
the prisoner. There was a reward of
$100 offered by the people of Pickens
county for the negro, dead or alive.
This reward will be paid to Mr. Met
Laurens. Special.-The county
board of education conducted the

took place when, by special permis
sion of the Pope, the miraculous statue
of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, belong
ing to the church of the same name,
was crowned by Archbishop Farley.
The function is a rare occurrence any
where, and it is the first time that such
a ceremony has ever been performed in
the United States.
News in Paragraphs.
Thc last General Assembly of tho
United Presbyterian Church decided
not to insist longer upon the singing
of Psalms and the avoidance of secret
societies as necessary conditions of
church membership. For many years
that church has regarded these two
points as necessary to spiritual life,
but now any brother may be received
into the church with that "forbearance
in love which is required by the love
of God," who may hold a contrary
view on these matters.
Big Still Destroyed.
Iva, Special-Sheriff Green and
State Constable Newell captured a
40-sallon still on thc Savannah river
about ten miles above here. Joe Ea
ton, who it Is alleged was operating
the still, was also captured and j
nlaced in jail. Ten gallons of whis
key was found ai. the still and several
hundred gallons o? beer was destroy- |
Causes Advance in Meat.
New York, Special.-As soon as the
retail butchers in this city learned that
Btrlkes had been ordered in the meat
packing plants in many of thra. large
cities they at once began to advance
the price of meat from 2 to 3 cents a
pound. This was done generally in the
tenement sections on the East and
West Sides of the city. H. L. Eichel
berger, general organizer of the Amal
gamated Moat Cullers and Butchers*
Workmen Union of America, predicted
that within three days there will be a
taeat famine in this city.
DRAWING THE, MILK.
Milk should be drawn from the cow"
in a cleanly manner. The udders
should oe brushed or washed before
milking: Milking with dry bauds is
decidedly preferable to the practice of
dipping the fingers 'in th.' pail to
moisten h.em. ~*
LOADING FARM WAGONS.
The custom of loading farm wagons
so that the heaviest weight is upori
the front wheels is ali wrong and adds
materially to the draft. The heaviest
weight should be carried by the hind
wheels: This has been proved by of
ficial nmi careful tests':
ABOUT LAYING DRAINS.
In laying (trains it is best to cover
each.joint with a collar so fitted that
tlie soil trill not work in ami fill tho
tile. If Hie bottom of the ditch is cut
down to a point exactly the size of the
tile the latter will not move internally,
nor cause trouble. It is best to make
it secure and safe' In Hie first place.
THE HORSE'S TEETH.
If thc horse slobbers while driving
and pulls- viciously on thc blt, look to
the teeth; many "pullers" are made so
for the want of propel' dental atten
tion. Carrying the head to one side
while being driven is frequently symp
toms of a faulty condition of the teeth,
which is relieved by a few minuto.--'
work of the veterinary surgeon.
WEED:; FOR CHICKENS.
AVe know of a gentleman who does
not allow weeds to disturb him in the
least. He says tho weeds and grass
that he pulls up out of bis garden is
fed to the chickens while it is young
and tender mid that they rat it greed
ily. His po- try and his garden both
always appear well, so be must keep
about enough poultry to consume all
THE HENS' NESTS.
Now, do have a httle pride abo.it you
and don't compel the hens to search
around for some old clapboard lean
ing up in a fence corner, behind which
they will have to hide to make a nest.
Along later in the summer, when the
weather gets hot, she will do very
well hatching her brood out under a
thick cluster of burdock leaves, but at
this time of the : sar she should at
least be provided an old nail kesr or
a cheese hoop to lay in, if her owner is
too shiftless to make her a better nest.
A GOOD THING TO DO.
It is a good idea to spend a good
deal of time among the chickens iii the
different bieeding yards," for in this
way only can a fancier become famil
iar with all bis chickens and their na
tures. What farmer would keep a fe
male for breeding purposes after he
has discovered that she is barren, and
what careful breeder of. poultry will
keep a hen that does not lay or that
lays only a few eggs. In the first in
stance the hog would be fattened and
sent to the slaughter house, and in the
second instance the speciniou . could
be roasted and served with oyster
dressing to appreciative invited guests
or even to the -family.
A HJ.NT ON WEEDING. R
The earth is seemingly able to pro
duce weeds or grass, whether fertile
or poor, and they always appear at
the same time, when the crops need
tho most care. Weed-; ors beneficial
to a .certain extent, although injuri
ous, for the gardener ia oicen com
pelled to eradicate them when he
would - ot otherwis givj thc garden
his attention. By so doing be keeps
the soil in n fine, friable condition tor
the desired crop. Weeels, however,
should be removed as soon as they ap
pear; by so doing the work can be
more easily done, and the stirring of
the soil will then only be required to
a moderate depth.
SIMFLE AND ACCURATE.
The little level, shown in the accom
panying illustration, I use in survey
ing irrigation ditches on my ranch. It
is very simple and accurate, and first
class work can be done with it. It is
made of a piece of one by four-inch
board, sixteen feet long, with a
straight edge. On one end nail a leg
one by four by twenty-four inches
long flush with the top. On the other
nail a similar piece tbree-e.ghths of
an inch longer than the other. This
makes a long grade. In the middle of
thc long piece nail on either side a
short pieces, so as to hold a common
carpenter's lovel. Place the short leg
on tho starting point Qt the ditch and
move the other end until tho bubble
is level. In this way you will bore a
ditch with a three-eighth inch grade
to the rod. Continue this throughout
the entire length of the ditch.-Charles
C. Hnss, in Orange Judd Farmer.
The Poetic Temperament.
A recent book published in Munich
called, "Ulrika von Leve iow and Her
Recollections of Goethe," shows us
Goethe at the age of seventy-four,
possessing still a youth's capacity for
emotion, which Eckermann refers to
as "a fresh vivacity of heart." It
was for the seventeen-year-old Ul
rika, says Harper's Weekly, that
Goethe wrote the impassioned "Elegy
ol' Marienbad." a poem compact of
stress and intensity, having, says Eck
emiitiin. "something immediate about
it as of a. single jet of feeling."
Ulrika denies that she was, at the
ago ot' seventeen, a sentimental Char
lotie and Goethe an aged Werther.
She tells very ingenuously of being
called from her embribdery one day
by her grandmother to meet an old
gentleman. Unaware of his name and
his celebrity, she met him with the
utmost unconcern and indifference.
It was doubtless this ingenuousness
coupled with a childlike and charming
appearance which won the poet's
heart. The acquaintance ripened "In
to friendship and into a deep devotion
on the poet's side. The two took long
daily walks together." Goethe, in his
mineralogical excursions, has found an
"immortal violet," writes a contem
porary. "'He is distractedly in love
willi a. young girl and wants to marry
Uer. A poet's folly 1"
