Our friend, George T. Bryan, accom

of this city, intend this week to pay a
visit to the Holt county Mineral Spring,
with the view of improving their health
by drinking the water. The Spring, (or
more properly, the well,) is located 1
near Mound City, and a hotel is kept for
the accommodation of visitors by the
proprietor, Mr. Kunkel.
A singular story is told of the tfocov-
ery of the whereabouts of this mineral
stream, running under ground and rock
at a depth of forty feet. Mr. Kunkel is
said to be a "water-witch,1' and passing
over the spot one day felt a peculiar
feeling. Procuring the nrythical hazel
switch, and returning to the spot, it in
dicated the place to dig. Operations
were commenced, the last 15 or iO feet
being by boring through rock. When
the stream was struck it rushed up vio
lently, and contin.-jes to discharge
through pipes a strong active stream.
The medicinal properties of the water
are well attested

A fearful railroad accident and smash
up occurred on Tuesday last, on She St.
Louis, Kansas City and Northern Rail
road, about twenty-four miles from St.
Joseph, and four miles from Gower, in
Clinton county. A train of cars run
ning at full speed, broke through a tres
tle work twenty feet in height, and
were piled together in a broken confus
ed mass on the rocky bottom beneath.
The quick-minded engineer, ieeling the
bridge giving aAvay, let on a lull head
of steam, and the locomotive and tender
plunged safely over, thus, doubtless
very greatly lessening the calamitous
results; for had the locomotive went
through, many more deaths and serious
injuries might have resulted from the
steam and lire. The train had aboaid
about seventy jJassengers men, women
and children, all unconscious of danger.
Three of the number were killed, thir
teen severely injured, (among whom
are one or two that will probably
not recover,) and thirty-two slightly in
jured. We do not observe the names of
any citizens of Andrew among the pub
lished list of killed or wounded. A re
lief train from St. Joseph, wish neces
sary supplies, and physicians on board,
was dispatched Jo the scene, to aid in
the relief of the suffering. Two of the
injured were left at Gower, and the re
mainder put aboard the train and car

been kindly cared for, and everything

Help to Mothers Cursing Infanta.
It is a conceded fact that mothers who
have the care, anxiety and draught of
nursing infants are weak- and need the
aid of some strengthening tonic to make
up the nourishment required for the
growth of the ch.ld. Ale, porter, and
lager beer have often been recommend
ed. Of late, since physicians have be
come aware that the Port Grape Wine
produced by Alfred Speer, of Pasaie, N.
J.,, is strictly pure they have prescribed
it instead ofale and porter. This wine
is principally sought for by mothers who
have nursing infants at the breast, as
the best supplying medium to be found.
The wine is rich in body and not intox
icating but gently stimulating. Drug
gists generally keep it, and sell it for 81
a bottle. Enquirer.
