Two conflicting stories caute from
Radford about the accident of Sunday
tlit'ii-, ami they arc given lor what
ihey are worth.
Thomas L. McMahon jumped from
'lie East bound train while it was in
motion <>n Sunday afternoon near
Radford, turued a couple of summer?
saults, and Ml with hi.- head and arm
under tin- ivuceis ui the cars. Both
were severed from the body and th
blood gushed outcoverlng the rails.
An account of the accident given by
a passenger of the train is t<? the ef
feet that the gentleman, Mr. Thomas
1, McMahou by name, bad an en
gageiuent to meet a I idy at Uadford
and el?>pe with her. Tbo lady came
from further up the line, and he was
to join her ai the station. .lust U
fore 1 he train pulled into the depot
-he secreted herself, thinking thai
she was being shallowed, ami when
Mr. McMahon hoarded the train and
passed through the car she was not t
I -e found.
In the meantime the train hud
started and McMahon, not finding the
woman, attempted to leave it. The
gradeal this point descends rapidly
and the train was making about twen
ty mil> s an hour when the man jump?
ed, was warned by tbeconductor
not to do SO, hut diil not heed. The
passenger, win, brought the in?
formation, said that the facts as
given were learned from letters
found on the de ad man's person.
The other story is to the effect that
Mr. McMahon hud hoarded the train
to hid Ids wifj good bye, and* during
an affectionate leave-taking the train
started. The gentleman hurriedly
kissed hi- wife ami left the coach. In
attempting to jump from the plat?
form steps he was by some means
jerked under the train, the wheels
passing over Iii?? neck and severing hi
head from the body.
The train was stopped and the
body and head of the unfortunate
m -n taken from the track. The dis?
tress and agony of the p"or wife, who
a lew seconds before had imprinted a
loving ki>- upon her husband's lips, i.

Something s< ?'1nrs to have come over
, the spirit ol the Commercial Gazette
'since Mr. Halstcad left it. In an edi?
torial of recent date it said:
The old saying, "Go West, young
man. and grow up with the country."
is dj iitx rapidly out of existence, and
the new phrase, "Go South." is be?
coming more and more popular each
day. For some years it has been
thought, and lately it has been dem?
onstrated, that the future great
wealth of the country is to be found
in the Southern States. Southeastern
Kentucky. Tennessee, Georgia, Ala?
bama and Virginia. Towns and cities
are springing up as if touched by a
magic hand. Euormous finds of coal,
iron, timber and marble have opened
up a new era in the wealth and pros
perity of that section ot the country,
and American and Fugiish capital a e
now seeking investments in the South
in preference to the West.
It is the t ruth of this statement that
enables the South to defy the machi?
nations of tho Republicans.
The South is destined to grow very
rich and very populous in the next
quarter of a century, and the present
political conditions wilt disappear
with the consumption of that happy
state of affairs.
Let us look well to our material
prosperity, for with such prosperity
we can safely defy our political
enemies.?Birmingham Age Herald.

Mr. George Blanton, an employe of

day by gas suffocation. A meter in
the store of Mr. Chris Wert/., on Sec?

to fix it, and as the meter was under
the flooring it was necessary for him
to lay down on his back and reach it.
He was endeavoring to change meters,
ami as there was no shut Off on the
street, so soon as he took the cap oil

soon tilled the small space in which
he was. Before he could get tin- cap
in place again he was completely
overcome by the gas. His helper
waited a few moments outside ami not
bearing him coming our, and as the
odor of the gas was strong, rightly
guessed what the trouble was ana
quickly rescued him from the perilous
position. After staying in the fresh
air a few moments he was revived and
went back to finish the job, but was
again overcome and had to betaken

It seems that this would have taugbl ;
