BK FAST TRAIN
Two Horses Instantly Killed
As Walter Hum was driving home
from Toledo, last Friday afternoon
and was about to cross the C. H. &
D. R. R. track on West Boundary
street, ho mot with an accident that
nearly cost him his life and from
which he is in a serious condition.
The south bound fast train which
leaves (or passes) Perrysburg at about
2:30 p. m., was rushing down the
track air high speed when Walter
Hum was on his way home and going
out West Boundary street. Ho did
not hear any warning whistle and
droyo his team on the track crossing
when the wagon was struck and the
two horses were thrown in the air, the
wagon crushed into kindling and Mr.
Hum thrown about 30 feet from the
track, and when taken from under the
wagon it was supposed that he had
received injuries that would surely
provo fatal. As soon as possible, the
train was stopped and backed to the
scene and the injured man immediate
ly brought back to town to the Rhein
frank hospital, where an examination
was made. 'His left arm was fractur
ed in a bad manner and he' was oth
erwise badly bruised. A further ex
amination revealed nothing more ser
ious. It seems like a miraculous es
cape from what would naturally seem
a certain death. At present he is
doing as well as can be expected.
Both of the horses were killed, the
force of the impact being sufficient to
throw on horsee about 150 feet from
the track while the other was carried
along about 50 feet both being terri
There are various reports concern
ing the accident. It is said that the
engineer did not give the usual warn
ing whistle for the track crossing,
which is only one square south of the
bend in the track as it passes out of

A large delegation from Perrysburg

attendance would have been much
larger if the weather had not been so
threatening, but the committees in

A Description of Southern Califoi-
Leaving tho beautiful Pacifiio
Grove our party traveled southward
along the line of tho Southern Pacific
and let me tell yoit, dear readors, that
for about three hours of tho middle
part of the day while our train was
traveling through tho San Jose valley
shut out from tho line of brseze from
the ocean, I thought I had suddenly
been transported from the beautiful
Garden of Eden right plump into the
place that I have been trying to miss.
The sun beat down upon the coach
with a fire that seemed to come from
the infernal regions, and oh how I
did long for a shady spot along the
beautiful Maumee, and in my heart
I made several solemn vows that
"never again" would I leave my
happy home in search of mountain
scenery in the hot month of July un
less I secured passage in a refrigera
tor car. First I removed my coat,
then my vest, followed by my necktie
and collar, and then well, a young
lady sitting in the opposite Beat said
"please wait until I turn my head
before you remove any more clothing."
Just at this point Rider came to my
rescue with a small cake of ice he had
stolen from the refrigerator, and thus
1 was saved from exploding,
This awful heat was very suddenly
changed, however, as the train reach
ed the summit of the divide and the
refreshing breeze from the grand old
ocean was wafted through the coach,
bringing with it a sense of relief that
was really wonderful and put new
life in,to the passengers that were
nearly suffocated, and in a very short
time they had replaced their discard
ed clothing as the air was rather
chilly, and this condition prevailed all
the way to Los Angeles, the beautiful?
Somebody asked tho meaning of
Los Angeles, and Rider said it meaus
lost Angel, and perhaps it does, al
though I don't always believe Rider.
However, if the Angel got lost bore I
don't blame her for staying, and I
think she only shows her wisdom and
knowledge of a "good thing" by stick
ing to this beautiful city, this haven
of rest for the tourist who wants to
spend his money and wants full val
ue for every dollar he spendB, and
rest assured, dear reader, you can get
more fun for ycur money in Los An-
