Til In Progressive House Now Enjoying:
n Very targe Business.
Mr. William Lynch, at the head of
the dry goods store bearing his name,
is probably one of the best known
men in the business. Since his re
turn to this city he has opened the
large store at Brook and Market
streets, which is stocked with a fine
selection of goods. Judging from the
number of people to be seen in the
store at all hours, the hot weather
and hard times have no effect on his
great trade. This may in a measure
be accounted foj by the fact that all
goods advertised by the new company
are always found to be as represented.
We call the attention of our readers
to his advertisement in this issue.

Decoursey moved from his seat and
started toward the cab door, Intend
ing to leap and save his life. Martin,
the engineer, remained in his seat.
He had thrown the brake forward and
closed the throttle. For nearly a hun
dred feet the engine bumped over the
tires and then careened and turned
completely over on its side and re
versed. Fireman Decoursey was
thrown twenty feet into the air and
landed heavily on a pile of debris
some yards from the track. It all
ocenrred so quickly that Engineer
Martin, after throwing the brake, had
no time to get out of the way, and
he was crushed beneath the mass of
steel and iron. Twelve coal cars fol
lowed the engine and the track was
strewn with coal and the wreckage of
a dozen cars for nearly a half of a
mile. The engine tender, torn from
the tracks, had been hurled over forty
feet beyond the engine. Those of
the crew who escaped injury hurried
to the assistance of their less fortunate
companions. Decoursey was picked
up and carried to a neighboring farm
house. His body was covered with
bruises and two of his ribs were
crushed in. At first it was thought
his injuries would prove fatal, but his
physicians now report him as out of
immediate danger, and entertain
hopes of his recovery.
Mr. Decoursey is the son of Steph
en Decousey, living at Sixth and
Kentucky streets, and is widely known
in railroad circles. .
Martin was found terribly crushed,
but in his seat. He was covered with
debris, ,while escaping steam and
water had literally cooked the body.
