Jackson, Oct. 26.
In a rear end automobile collision,
about one mile east of Jackson, Sun
day afternoon, two cars loaded with
passengers were hurled in the ditch,
and a numler of the occupants seri
The accident was caused by the
driver of the rear car losing control
of his machine as he was in the act
of passing the car ahead of him.
The car in front was driven by John
Gladish of Uurforuville, who was ac
companied by his wife and three other
passengers, and the car that dashed
into him was driven by J. W. Tit
man of Millcrville, who was accom
panied by Mrs. Pitman.
The Gladish machine had given all
the passing space possible to the ap
proaching car, and when it tore into
his rear wheel the machine was lifted
almost bodily and thrown into a tele
graph pole which prevented the car
turning completely over. The pas
sengers were thrown out and all were
injured to some extent. The Pitman
car ran ahead some distance and while
the driver was looking back to see
what damage had been done, his ma
chine plunged headlong over a bank on
the opposite side of the road. Pitman
and his wife were thrown out, but
neither was seriously hurt.
The cars were both damaged con
siderably as a result of the accident.
Mr. Pitman stated that his steering
gear had become imparied and he was
unable to control his car.

The President's proclamation, which
refers to the fact that the United
States is at peace while much of the
rest of the world is at war, follows:
"It has long been the honored cus
torn of our people to turn in the fruit
ful autumn of the year in praise and
thanksgiving to Almighty God for his
many blessings and mercies to us as a
nation. The year that is now drawing
to a close since we last observed our
day of national thanksgiving, has been
while a year of discipline because of
the mighty forces of war and of
change which has disturbed the world,
also a year of special blessing for us.
"It has been vouchsafed to us to re
main at peace, with honor, and in some
part to succor the suffering and sup
ply the needs of those who are in

wn peace and self-control in some de
cree to steady the counsels and to

"Our people have looked upon their
nvn life as a nation with a deeper
omprehension, a fuller realization of
-heir responsibilities as well as of
.heir blessings and a keener sense of
he moral and practical significance of
vhat their part among the nations of
the world may come to be.
"The hurtful effects of foreign war

for those who are suffering, their read

selves as well as to the world.
"Our crops will feed all who need

SIX WAX LADIES
WRECKED BY BOYS
Caldwell-Sherman Models Are
Stoned To Bits By Urchins
The police have been asked to ar
rest several boys who entered the hull
cf the Caldwell-Sherman store yester
day and demolished six wax figures
that had been left temporarily in the
From evidences left by the boys, the
urchins apparently tested their pitch
ing abilities on the models. Stones,
about the size of base balls, were
found scattered over the rear of the
building and strewn among them were
bits of the wax figures. One of the
models was valued at $125 and the
other five cost between $75 and $100
"I suppose the miscreants entered
the building through the front door.
As workmen have been cleaning up
the interior of the structure, prepora
tory to rebuilding it, I have not taken
much pains to prevent trespassing.
They stood in the show windows and
consequently were not damaged dur
ing the fire. When we removed the j
goods, I thought I would leave the mo- I
lels there until I could make room ;
at our temporary quarters. 1 would j
value the collection at about $500." 1
It is believed the boys entered the j
building and discovered the figures, j
men decided to test themselves as
twirlers. Patrolman Reeve, who visit
ed the scene yesterday, is of the
opinion that the boys stood the figures
then shattered them with stones.
One of the models, and considered
the best looking of the six dumb la
dies (get that?), appeared as if she
might have been bombarded by a
Krupp gun. A stone struck her just
under the chin and spoiled the smile
which formerly made the show win
dow of the Caldwell-Sherman look

arrest of the parties who committed
the offense," said Mr. Caldwell last
night. I have a clew which I believe

lice are co-operating with me.
