A BAD ACCIDENT.
TWO CAlltO I'KOITB HKHKICSI.V IIUItT AND
SEVERAL OTIfMtH M"ltE Oil LESS BDI.Y
News readied licro yesterday forenoon
that the pa8enror train which left here
early iu the morning on the Narrow
Gauge road had been ditcheil and
that Mrs. II, A. IIannon,who was mm ot the
prtssciiKers tii her little hoy, Imd hm,
killed. All day the story went from mouth
to mouth, cliiingino; from Imd to worse, hut
uo definite particulars could be" learned.
All that was positively known was
that there had l.eon au accident
just above Mill Creek station -some dis
tance away fioni a telegraph station -and
that therefore no reliable information irom
the scene of the wreck could be obtained.
Au extra tram was sent up from here, upon
which Sir. Ibinnon and several others Went
to leiii n the tri.Ui of the rcMjrtK. The pei
pie here anxiously awaited the return of
the train in the tveuing, which was tn
bring the much sought or particulars ol
the accident and the mangled passengers.
hen the hour for the train to arrive
came a number of people gathered at
the depot with buggies; a closed carria".;
and the American Union cxnrrss uw.ui
were also on hand to lend any assistance
that might he necessary. The train was
over an hour late, arriving here about seven
o'clock, and it was not till then that the ex
tent of the accident could be learned.
Only two were anything like seriously
hurt; .me of these was a young man from
Ava, Illinois, who had been in the
employ of Mr. Win, Alha for some time,
named Ed. Knchncr, a nuphc-w to Mr.
Thomas Keith. J lis riilit arm was broken
between the wrist and elbow, while he was
attempting to prevent himself from falling
as the car in which he was turned over
He managed to get out of the wreck with
out further injuries, and his arm was band
aged ai well as could be in the absence of a
The other victim is Mrs. riannon, who
sustained some very severe internal injuries.
The stove in the car fell upon her, bruising
her badly and betting her clothing on lire,
aud had she not been speedily rescued by a
gentlemen passenger, a met chant ile trav
eler from St. Louis, and another man who
lived near the scene of the catastrophe, she
would certainly have perished. She was
placed upon a mattress and niade
as comfortable as possible and when th
train arrived hcie, accompanied by Mr
Hinuon, wan taken to her home on Nint!
street. She is not unconscious, but snt'
fers severe pain and the physicians, who
were immediately called, dared not insti
tuie an examination to learn flic extent
and character of her injury last evening
because of the agony she was in, and hence
if will not be known until today
whether she will entirely recover or not
She is almost unable to utter a word urn
experiences pain at every movement of
muscle. Whatever may the developments
in her cac within the next few days it is
certain tint her injuries are very severe
The little boy was not injured in the least
Mr. Il.mnon has the sympathy of the entire
community in his atlliction.
A nutnbi i of other Cairoites were on thu
train, and several other passengers wer
slightly bruised, but not seriously. The
cause ot the accident was a cow jumping
onto the track in front of the train, throw
ing the engiue oil the track and causing all
the coaches to turn over. The lire-
man and engineer were not
hurt. The following letter from
Win. E. Lonergan, who was also a passen
ger on the train, was received by Mr. Win
lioni'igi.u last evening:
"Anna, Ills., April -lth.
11 Til f . . i
j-A iiihii-imr nam mis morning was
wrecked 14 ol a nulc above Mill Creek. It
was mused by running over a cow. It
threw ciiu'ine and all of the roaches oil' the
track. One of Alba'i barbers has his arm
luoken. and I think he is hurt pretty had.
Mrs. II. A. llnnnon, of Cuiro, is also Be
riotisly hurt, Several parties have got
their limbs bruised. I escaped very lucky.
i nave my lelt liiunl scratched up and my
iigiu ice nun, nut noi bad. We have to
stay at .lonesboro until we get a train from
lano. i our son, , E. Loxeiwan."
THE ROUS. '
Tho chief of police litis issued his edict
against the cniiimi race, as is usual uhntit
this time of the year, and by uotices posted
about the city informs tho whole tribe,
through their owners, that on tho 10th of
April a war of extermination on that part
of the race untubed will bo commenced;
that on that day friendless dogs will begin
to gather in the pound as the first station
nn tho road to dog heaven; that day dogs
who have not influential owners, or have
not friends among the dog catching boys or
tinkers will havo to ho embellished with
collar and tax tal, paid for at tho rate of
two dollars per head or bu landed on the
other siilo of Jordon at 24 hours notice.
W'e Jo not want to bo understood as oppos
ing tuo two dollars tax on dogs,
but wo tlo object to the tax being
collected of thoso who own yaluablo
clogs imd deslro to protect them, wliilo
snarling, mangy, mongrels are permitted to
run at large with others whoso owners re-
fuse to pay, and question tho right to ml.
led the tax. If the tax is just and legal,
then let it he collected from all without re
spect of person or dogs. If it is illegal
and only those who do not feel disposed or
will not make a light over it, will bu re
quired to pay, then the sooner a test ease is
made and the farce called collecting the
clog tax i ended, the better tor all concerned.
A CARD OF THANKS.
Allow me through the medium of your
paper to return my heartfelt thanks to the
many friends and acquaintances, that so
kindly volunteered their aid and consola
tion to myself and family during our re
cent atlliction. Their kind offices will ul
ways be remembered, and treasured as
bright spots dining the dark hours we
have lately passed through. Again ailow
me to thank them one and all.
Yours ifcc, Hauuv Walker.

Mr. N. Levering, whose apiary is in
the Ciihiienga, has shipped four colo
nies of bees, intended for New Zealand.
Each colony is accompanied by an Ital
ian queen, including tho one that took
the pi vm at the recont fair. Tho boxoi
in which the bees make their long Jour
ney is about, two feet in length by afoot
and a hull iu height and breadth. Each
mo is supplied with un nttachment on
ono side containing a sponge, and
bearing directions that fresh' water
shall bo applied to it every day. This
furnishes the bees with their drink, and
keeps the atmosphere of the hives suf
ficiently humid. Tho matter of venli
lution is provided for by means of sev
eral auger-holes in thti bottom of the
hives and au aperture in the top, lilted
with wire-cloth and closing with a slide,
so that the current, of air may be regula
ted to suit the wiyttlter. Atone end of tho
hive there is arranged a compartment,
covered externally with wire-cloth,
where thn bees may go for an airing
should it become too warm inside. Each
hivo is provided with several frames of
honey, to furnish feed on tho way.
A Hartford man sent a pair of trous
ers to his tailor to be repaired. The
tailor' workman found $.100 in a roll
in the pocket, and returned it. The
ow ner I hanked him very warmly.
"You are weak," said a woman to
her son, who was remonstrating against
her marrying again. "Yes, mother, I
am," he replied; "1 am so weak that I
can't go a step-father."
"drizzly Dan," the hero of Montana,
led a wonderful life, lie was once set
upon bv a whole tribe of Indians and
obliged to run for his life. lie beaded
for a cliff 7iwj feet high, dodging tho
bullets tired at him as he ran, being
able through long practico to tell the
course of a ball by the sound as it ap
proached from the rear, drizzly Dan
unhesitatingly leaped over tho cliff, to
the amazement of the Indians. As he
was falling Dan turned, raised his
Winchester rille to his shoulder and
pulled the trigger. An Indian toppled
over with a ball through his left eye,
and while he kept falling Dan kept
pulling the trigger until seventeen red
skins had balls through their left eyes
and were falling over the cliff after
him. The eighteenth shot only carried
away an Indian's nose, as the air was
so full of falling Indians between and
the top of the cliff that his aim was a
littlo confused, lie struck feet fore
most in the river below, and swaru
to the opposite shore before tho last
Indian's dead body struck the water.
