Of the Forty-Ave Passengers on Board
Not One Escaped Serious
Two Killed and Half a Dozen Others
Will Probably Die From Their
CINCINNATI, Sept. 3.—What will
prove, perhaps, the most disastrous
street car accident ever recorded took
place in this city at 7 p. m. An electric
car dashed down a hill at a frightful
6peed, left the track, broke a telegraph
pole and shot into a saloon, wrecking
both itself and the structure it struck.
As a result of the collision two people
are dead, six are injured beyond recov
ery and nearly 4'.) more are hurt, many
of them dangerously. It was soon after
the Eden Park afternoon concert had
closed and the audience, as usual, made
a rush for *he cars "down town."
Avpndale electric car No. 644 was soon
packed with people and Motorman
George Devin run without incident un
til he reached the grade a mile long
that descends into the business portion
of the city. Suddenly the brake
suid the heavy car began to descend
with furious speed. Conductor Charier
p.^mit ran to his comrade's assistance
but the brake was pbstinate and the
two men turned their attention to the
frightened passengers. By parjwasion
and force the half hundred or more in
roates^ were kept in their seats, while
the car now swaying and fro shoj
down the hill with awful velocity until
Teaching the intersection of Hunt and
Broadway, where it left the track and
•mashing a telegraph poTe^which stood in
its path into pieces,plunged into the sa
loon of George Schmidt at 351 Broadway.
There were 45 people in the car and not
one of tham escaped injury. The motor
man and the conductor jumped just
before the car struck, and thus escaped
a horrible deatl. The car was
Smashed Into Splinters,
as was also the front oil the saloon and
the bar. From the debris at once arose
agonizing cries and moans that told
those within hearing that a terrible ac
cident had occurred. Six patrol wagons
were upon the scene within a few min
ates and the dead and dying were
quickly transferred to the city hospital,
were the entire medical staff was soon
busily engaged in rendering such as
sistance as was in their powei*. The
killed and fatally wounded are: Marie
Maloney, aged 12 Mrs. Sarah Duklin,
aged 35 Lizzie Johnson, Clara Beckley,
Mrs. Mary Beckley, EJna Ford, Louisa
Best, Allan Best. Corner Querner has
already begun an investigation of the
accident, but the cause will not be
made known officially for several days.
The motorman claims the car had ob
tained no unusual momentum when
•he brake refused to do its office.

Daring Train Robbery by Masked
]Meii at Mound Valley, Ivan.
OSWEGO, Kan^, Sept. 5. —Three ban
dits, with a coolness and nerve rarely
equalled in all the long series of train
robberies in the Southwest, murdered
an express messenger at Mound Valley,
Kan., six miles west of here, about 4 a.
m., compelled the engineer to run the
train two miles away, leaving the dead
body on the platform, and then, finding
that any hope of opening the express
treasure box had gone out with the life
of the messenger, they coolly robbed
the train crew.and every passenger in
the three day coaches. Only the sleeper
was left unmolested.

A LOVERS' QUARREL.
Dick and I had quarreled and parted.
I cannot tell you how it all began, or
why it ended in this serious fashion, but
I can assure yon I felt very miserable as
I saw him striding away over the fields,
although I had told him to go myself.
Still I never thought he would have taken
me at my word'*
"What shall I say to Aunt Maria?" I
thought as I turned my steps homeward.
Thia was a. very serious reflection in
deed, for it had been the dream of Aunt
Maria's existence to see me united to
Dick Johnson, thahandsorne only son of
our wealthy neighbor, gir Henry.
Dick and I had played together as
Children, danced together, flirted togeth
er, and finally fell in love with each
W were to have been married in a
month, and now I had sent him away
and,, told him I never wished to see him
What was to be done—and, oh dear!
what should I say to Aunt Maria? There
was no help for it, however, but to go
home and explain the situation to the
best of my ability, and accordingly home
Aunt Maria was in the drawing room,
and I stole softly in and took up a book,
hoping that she would not notice me.
But she saw me directly and inquired:
"Where is Dick?"
"He has gone home,"' I replied, trying
to assume an unconcerned manner and
failing most signally in the attempt.
"Gone home? Why! Did you not tell
him I expected him to dinner?"
"Then why is he not coming?"
"He had an engagement," I mumbled.
"For goodness' sake, child, speak out!
Come here where I can' see you. How
red your face is! What is the matter?"
I rose obediently and stood before my
aunt, who fixed a relentless gaze upon
"You have been crying," she said.
"Now, just tell mo tho truth at once,
Daisy. Have you and Dick quarreled?"
"Yes," I faltered.
"Andwha about, pray?"
"You don't know I" This in a very
I remained silent and fumbled for my
"Who began it?" pursued Aunt Maritt
I don't know."
"Have you broken off your engage
"Yes," I burst forth. I hate him, and
I will never speak to him again." Then
I began to weep copiously.
"If you're going to howl," said Aunt
Maria, with bitter irony, "you had better
leave the room. I shall require a full
explanation tomorrow from both you
and Mr. Johnson."
I fled up stairs and did not appear
again that evening. I passed a wretched
night and had a fearful scene with Aunt
Maria the next morning. She stormed
and expostulated, but I remained firm
in my resolve to return Dick's ring and
presents that very day.
Accordingly I spent a couple of hours
in crying over them and packing them
After luncheon Aunt Maria announced
her intention of visiting some pensioners
.of hers in a village about three miles dis
tant and ordered me to accompany her,
which I prepared to do with a veiy bad
grace, I fear. We walked for about half
an hour without exchanging a word, and
a more thoroughly ill tempered pair of
pedestrians could hardly have been found
Our way led through some fields, and
on reaching the first gate I noticed a
man leaning against it. A we came up
he opened it for ns and politely raised
his hat. He looked like a gentleman and
was dressed in a well fitting suit ot blue
serge. I saw that he was a stranger and
wondered where he came from, as stran
gers were rare in our secluded part of
a. little way further on I looked back
and observed that he was following us.
He overtook us before we reached the
next gate, passed us and opened this one
we went by
I resolved not to^spea tjo Annt Mari a u,n
til she addressed me I held my peace.
At the third gate the same perform
ance was repeated, but this time the
stranger did not fall behind. He walked
to Aunt Maria's side and. asked, "May I
offer you my arm?"
"Certainly not, sir," was the indignant
rejoinder. I have not the honor of your
acquaintance, nor do I desire it."
"At least you will permit me to carry
your umbrella." continued the stranger
unabashed. Aunt Maria merely snorted,
and clutching her umbrella more firmly
marched on at an increased pace.
"I there no little service you will al
low me to render you,"' pursued onr un
welcome companion in tragic tones. ^J5
"Go away, sirr* said my annt furious-

"Do not .drive mefrom you," was'-tte
*eply. I love you. I hare loved jtra
from the first moment I saw'you. Yon
are the only Woman I have ever loved
And with these words this most ex
traordinary individual threw himself on
his knees right in Aunt Maria's path.
At-this point a light broke in upon me.
There was a large private lunatic asy
lum in the neighborhood. This must
surely be one of the patients who had
eluded the vigilance of his keepers and
"He's mad," I whispered to Aunt Ma
ria. "For goodness' sake humor him or
he will murder us both. I have always
heard they must be humored."
Aunt Maria, however, paid no atten
tion, and I almost doubt if she even
"Let me pass, this instant, sir," she
gasped, crimson with wrath.
"Never! never I till you promise to be
At this point, I regret to say, my aunt
lost her temper altogether, and raising
her umbrella she brought it down on
her suitor's head with such force that
she quite crushed in the top of the bowl
er hat he wore, and which fortunately
protected his skull. For a moment he
seemed petrified with astonishment.
Then he sprang to his feet, and seizing
Aunt Maria in his arms lifted her bod
ily from the ground and carried her
along the path. She struggled violently,
and I followed, screaming for help.
The lunatic strode on until he reached
the gate which led into a field, on one
side of which ran, a rather high stone
wall. Upon Ifle^tof *brfv tint*wall he
placed my unfortunate aunt and then
stood and calmly surveyed her.
"Take me down! Let me goj" she
"Not till I have your promise to marry
me," replied the lunatic. I am quite
prepared to remain here until tomor
row morning if need be? he added, with
"Oh, aunt, do say 'Yes,'" I implored,
but at this our persecutor turned upon
me. "Will you have the goodness not
to interfere?" he said, go..fiercely that I
was terrified and shrank back.
For about 10 minutes Aunt Maria sat
on that wall and raved. Then she burst
into tears. At this Juncture I perceived
a man's figure in the distance. Was he
coming this way? Oh, joy, he was! As
he drew nearer I saw to my mingled de
light and dismay that it was Dick, and
seeing that the lunatic had his back tc
me I ran to meet him.
"Oh, Dick," I shouted as I came up to
him, "we have been so terribly fright
ened by a madman! He has put Aunt
Maria on the wall and says she can't get
down until she promises to marry him.
Do come and save her!"
Dick ran quickly to the spot, and the
lunatic turned and faced him.
"You rascal!" cried Dick. "Stand
back and let me take that lady off the
"You shall not touch her," said the
Dick took him by the coat collar and
flung him aside with such force that he
stumbled and fell. The next instant
Dick had lifted Aunt Maria safely to the
ground. He had scarcely done so when
the madmanleapeYl upon him, and a ter
rific struggle followed. Suddenly I saw
the lunatic place his hand in the breast
of his coat, and the next instant there
was a flash of steel. He had'drawn a
"Oh, Dick!—oh, my darling!" I scream
ed, "he will kill you!"
In that moment I forgot our quarrel.
I forgot everything except that I loved
him better than anything in the world,
and that he was in peril of his life, and
rushing forward I grasped the madman's
arm and hung on to it with all my
weight. Aunt Maria screamed lustily
for help, and as I spun round with tht
combatants I caught sight of two men
running across the field.
Aid was near, so I clinched my teeth
and held on like grim death. In a few
seconds—it seemed like an eternity to
me—the men were on the spot, and after
a brief struggle the lunatic was secured
and disarmed by the two keepers, who
had been searching for him all day. As
for me, the danger being over, I prompt
ly fainted away. When I came to my
self, Dick was kneeling beside me, sup
porting me in his arms.
"Are you all right?" he asked anx
"Yes," I replied, with a smile, I am
We all three walked home together,
and Dick dined with us that evening.
Afterward, when I accompanied him
into the hall to bid him good night, he
asked as he held me in his arms, "Tell
me, Daisj-, would you have been sorry if
that fellow had killed me today?"
"Don't talk about it, dearest," I an
swered, with a shudder. "It would have
broken my heart."
"Then you cannot live without me
I leaned against his breast in silence,
and he kissed me very tenderly.
