SPICES
THAJ SPICE.
( It would be an object lesson never to be
J forgotten if housewives oould sometime have
an opportunity to compare, side by size, the
different grades of spices. Some have double
the strength of others, while there is ever? more
variation in the delicaoy of the flavor. You
want the f ull-tlavored, appetizing land in pre
aring your picking and canning recipes. We
supply them. We get the best spices, the kind
?f^hat is often used in medicine, the only kind
that should be used. ?

" Emergency Medicines.
!!? is a great convenience to have at
hand reliable remedies for use in cases
of acoident and for slight injuries and
ailments. A good liniment and one that
is fast becoming a favorite, if not a
household necessity, is Chanfborlain's
Pain Balm. By applying it promptly to
a out, bruise or burn lt allays the pain
and causes the injury to heal in about
one-third the time usually required, and
as lt is au antiseptlo, it prevents any
danger of blood poisoning. When Pain
Balm is kept at hand a sprain may be
treated before inflammation sets in,
whioh insures a quick recovery. For

FEARFUL WRECK ON SOUTHERN.
In Collision Fifty People are Killed and
Hundred and Twenty-ffv? Injured.
Knoxville, Tenu.i September 24.- The
moat disastrous railroad wreck known in
this section ooourred t li in morning at
10.18 o'olook on the Southern ^Railway
about H m?rs west of Hodges1'* station
and is- mileftseast of Knoxville.
Tho result*of the collision of two pas
senger trains id that about fifty people
are dead and over 126 are injured.
The colliding trains were east-bound
through passenger train No. 12, from
Chattanooga to Salisbury, N. C., leaving
Knoxville at 0.35 a. m., and west-bound
local passenger traiu'No. 15, from Bristol
to Knoxville, duo tb arrive here at ll a. m.
According to the best information, the
wreck waa duo to a failure of'the crow of
the west-bound train to oarry out its
orders to meet tho east-bound passenger
at Hodges' stationl
Instead of taking the siding at Hodges,
it proceeded toward Knoxville, with the
result that a frightful collision occurred.
Both trains woro running on time and
at a speed of about 80 miles an hour.
The locomotives were demolished and
tho major portions of both trains were
completely wreoked, with the exception
bf the Pullman sleepers, none of which
left tho traok.
The pile of wreckage was ghastly and
the suffering terrible in the extreme.
The wreoked coaches wero Ailed with
dead and injured and the rescue work
?was accomplished with great difnoulty.
A wreokage and special relief train left
this city as soon as possible after the
nows of the disaster had been received
here, Upon this train was a representa
tive of tho. Associated Press. The re
moval of tue wreckage and the rescuing
of the dead and wounded oommenoed
immediately upon arrival of thiB train.
11 undi cds of peoplo had been at traded
from' Hodges' station, Newmarket and
the many farm houses in the vicinity of
the wreck. The people thereabouts ren
dered every possible assistance and
nearby homes were thrown open to the
dead and suffering.
The corps of physicians on the special
traiu administered to the wounded, who,
with the dead, were plac?d on the speoial
train and brought to Knoxville, arriving
here about 6 o'olook.
Five of the injured died while en route
to this city. Some were taken to the
Knoxville general hospital and others to
their homes or the homes of friends.
A local undertaker bad received ordors
to have 150 cots in readiposs and these
were at tho Munson street crossing,
where tho dead and injurod were removed
from tho train.
Fully 2,000 people had gathered about
tho Southern passenger station. Tho
wreck occurred without the least warn
ing and tho trains were telesoopod.
?. CAU8B OFV WltKCK.
Officials of the road gave out tho fol
lowing:
"Tho cause of tho wreck is said to bo
misreading of orders by tho conductor of
No. 15. W. B. Caldwell was conductor
of No. 15,' and W. H. Kane, engineer.
Conduotor Murphy was in charge of No.
12 and C. M. rar* ott was the dngiueer.
."The accident occurred on account of
the fact that the orew of tho weBt-bound
train No. io overlooked or disregarded
ordors as to meeting pince with the east
bound train No. 12. The track and
equiproeut were in first class condition
and the <;rews were old and trusted em
ployees, having been in tho service of
the company some twenty years.
