intendent Gouldl and TIrainiaster' C. A.
Limewell were brought, to,thle scenec
with a wrecking crewi. W~hien they ar
rived, however, the citizz"ns of Kings
bury had carried away the dleadi and(
wounded who could be removed. Tihe
Masonic hali w~as tuiriied into morgue
and drays and farmers' wvagonis were
kept busy f or two hours hauling the
dead and wounded to the village, a mille
distant from the depot.
There was two sleepers on the train
"The Marian" and "Tha. Kansas City,"
the former escaped injury, but the
front part of the Kansas City was con
verted into kindling wood by the day
coach which smashed into it. T wo bod
ies were taken from the sleeper, those
of Harry French, London, England,
and Chas. Barbo, of San Francisco.
The smoaking car was twisted into ai
heap of splinters and few of' the passen
gers escaped death or in jury. The day
coach which followed was also entirely
whecked by being hurled against. tIn

Division Superintendent Gould ad
mnitted that freight brakeman, lieber
Thompson, was to blame for the acei

AIKEN, Sept. 27.-There has always

and the Friendship Baptst churches at

were simon pure colored lople. The
Methodists were inclined to admit, ginger
cake and even light tan minibers, a in
tact the ginger-cake fiction re diy dmi

k some things which are laid at their door.
