told ln his fascinating way of tho dif?
ferent kinds of talk; of those, .that of
general conversation was most nmuslng.
His definition of wit and his Illustrations
of witty talk wero very Interesting. The
malicious talker received his condemna?
tion, and he produced laughter many
times an he described the man who knew
It all and the man who know everybody.
The women were ncit slighted, and even
?"?ntlmental talk had Its place ' In the
The audience broke forth In applause
nt the speaker's narration of what
Ihe battle flag said to him and tho Jes
son that was taught him by the gray
Jacket of tho dead hero. To Illustrato
that acts talk. Mr. Baker gave an? origi?
nal poom, "Driving Down Windsor
Lane," which v/ns full of tho sentlmontal.
The tribute to woman and what mother
says to us when her life has been spent
In behalf of others, was very beautiful.
Announccmint was mado that the next
looture In cho course would take place
In about four weeks. Many expressed
themselves last night as desirous that
Mr. Baker be asked to repeat his lecture
In the noar future.

Both Engines Considerably Damaged,
Officials Investigating the Cause.
Comment About Transfers?Mr,
Pettlt Deserves Credit.
Manchester Bureau TImcs-blspatoh, I
No. 1102 Hull Street, j"
About 9:50 o'clock last night as Atlantic
Coast Lino train. No. 42 from Petersburg
was about to reach the Atlantic Coast
Line bride from the south, and when near
the Sixteenth Street bridge In Manchester,
It collided wltb freight train' No. 209,
about to go south,
The engines camo together with a
crash, and both of them were badly u??ed
up. Thero wero no casualties among
the pasengers. Mr, Gee, himself, suffered
a slight scalp wound, but was not Injured
enough to put him out of work, engineer
Kenneth Smith was In charge of the pas?
senger engine, and Engineer Johnson, of
Tho oillclals of tho road are investigating
Into the causo of the accident. Tho
freight was practically at a standstill,
and tho pasonger train was going at ?
rate of ten miles an hour. Both cnglnc-s
wero put out of use temporarily.
An ofllclal of the company said last
night that It was not, so far ns couldi
be learned, a case of misplaced swlth. The
freight was making up for a trip south,
and the passenger was coming In on IU
usual time. Tho only reason that can
be conjectured Is that there was a mis?
understanding regarding signals.
