that at the time of the accident he was
employed as extra man, having no

story of the accident is as follows:
"I wns running west on Washington
street at the rate of. as nearly as I can
Judge, ten miles an hour." When I
was within about a hundred feet of the
crossing of Bush und Washington

Increase the digestive powers of the
stomach by eating indigestible food in
order to force It to work.
Nature has furnished us all with a
perfect set of orguns, and If they are
not abused they will attend to the

no abnormal strength.
There is a limit to the weight a
ruan can lift, and there Is ulso a limit
to wlnit tho stomach can do.
The cause of dyspepsia, indigestion
nnd many similar dlneuses is that the
Btomach has been exercised too much
and It Is tired or worn out. Not ex-
ercise but rest is vhut It noeds.
To take something into the Btomach

reason my crew mutinied and wanted
their discharge," said Capt. J. W. rmkln
of the baric Haddon Hall yeftterdny at
the Hollenbeck hotel.
"They signed the articles for a three

but he wanted satisfaction and de

I let him go to see the consul, but ap
