When a woman gives tip it is because
she lias gone to the utmost limit of
strength and endurance. It is a marvel
how women •will stagger on under the
dam- household burdens when the whole
body is racked with paiji.
For the nervous, run-down condition
which so many women experience, as a
result of overstrain in household cares,
there •is no medicine can equal Dr..
Pierces Golden Medical Discovery. It
strengthens the weak stomach by cur
ing diseases of the organs of digestion
and nutrition. It purifies the blood of
poisons which cause rheumatism and
other painful diseases. It nourishes the
nerves", and builds up the body with
Bound, healthy flesh.
There is no alcohol in "Golden Med
ical Discovery'? and it is entirely {rec
from opium, cocaine and all other nar
cotics.
Accept no substitute for the " Discov
ery." There is nothing ■' just as good"
for weakness, nervousness and debility.
"I wact the -whole world to know what Dr.
Pierces medicines linvc done for me." writes
Mrs. Helen Uardjrrove. of Bangs. Knoi Co., 0.,
"I had many of tlie ills of woman's life. My
lr.ngs and throat troubled me besides, and I had
rheumatism. About a year ago I had to give
up wo,rk I was so bad. I had heard so .much
nV>cnt your medicine I thought I would try it.
I took four bottles of jour ' Golden Medical Dis
covery' end ' J'ellets,' and by the time I had taken
hnlf of the fir't bottle I be^an to gaiu, and kept
on getting better. And now 1 hare no more of
my old Qumcnts and am entirely cured of rheu

Brakeman Moore gives a graphic
account of the ac; ¥ id«nt. He says
that his. train. No. 95, consisting of
twenty empty coal-cars, ,vas going- west
at the rate of about twenty or twenty
flvo miles an hour, and the othes train
of loaded cars was coming east at about
half that rate of spepu\ At 5:16; be
tween Buffalo Springs and Greenway, his
train was rounding a curve, when he,
from his seat on the left side of the cab,
saw a train bearing down upon them,
within inn feet. Trevillian was busy
■wivii his engine, and his first warning was
Moore's cry of "Great God. fellows.
Jump!" Moore leaped f rnm the opening
between the cab and th--» tender, on the
ri^ht side of the car, and Trevillian fol
lowed immediately. J. E. Hawks, the
fireman, jumped from the other side.
So closo were the train? that, as Moore
jumped, he says, he saw thf> other en
gine within twenty fret, and as he struck
the ground the crash came, and he saw
at the same instant one. of the great
block coal-cars fallinc toward him. He
shut his eyes, but instead of being kill
ed, was knocked ten fe..t by the corner
of the car. Tie crawled off into the.com
field to "scape the st»nm. and when the
dust and steam clenrnri away he found
Trevillian. who had been ripht upon nlm
when the crash came, lying wltn his legs
under the car and a. Rxen! cash in his head.
Moore had hardly lifted his head and spok
en to him when Trevillian died in his arms.
Hawks, the fireman, was caught under
th' 5 trticks nf one of the cars and bruised
very badly. He was unable to stand, but
will recover. Moore received a cut four
inches long- under his rip;ht arm. where
the corner of the car struck him. and is
sore from head to font, but not seriously
Injured. They were tr«ate<i i>>- Dr. Ross,

MR. J. C. SPEARS
LOST HIS WATCH
Came to Richmond to See the
Sights and Saw
Them.
As the result of a spree engaged in by
Mr. J. C. Spears, a well-to-do citizen of
Ora.ngebu rg, S. C, and a number of ac
quaintances here, a young man named
Otis Howard was arrested yesterday af
ternoon and placed in custody at the
First Station by Detectives Gibson and
Wren on the charge of being a suspi
cious character. A specific charge against
the young man was not made.
It appears that Spears and several other
men. among them John Riddle, whom
Spears had engaged as a "bodyguard"
during- his stay in Richmond, at S3 a day.
started out Tuesday nipht to see tht*
sights and spent considerable money. At
an up-town bar-room Spears put up his
watch for something less tnan $5. but later
on h« redeemed it, and the party went
"down the line" until all hands were
pretty well filled up. At some hour dur
ing the nirht Spears exhibited a certified
check, which, at the instnnce of Riddle,
was torn up ajid thrown in the sewer. He
had also a thousand-mile railroad ticket,
which was taken from him by Riddle for
sa.te keeping.
After the party had seen all the sights
of the city, all hands went to bed. and
when Mr. Spears awoke next mornin.er his
watch was mi=sinp. The detectives went
to work on the case, and in a. short while
had Riddlp. Spears and sevpral oth^r
members of the party of the night before
at poiict? headquarters.
Spears at first charged Riddle with hav
ing the watch, but this- was denied, and
the denial was backed up by others in
the party, and then Spears withdrew his
charge. Tie said that he was drunk and
didn't know what happened. The party
left headquarters, and the detectives iet
out on a search for thp watch.
Later young Howard was arrpsted. and
the stnry will be cleared up in the Police
Court to-day.
