THE TIMES, NEW BLOOMFIELI), PA., JUNE 12,' 1877.
A Train Run Down an Embankment for
Purpose; of Robbery.
St, Louis, June 4. A an express train
on tlie Ht. Louis ami San Frauolsoo rail way,
late the Atlantlo and Faolflo railway,
reached n point pne and a half mllos west
of Wood End station, ono liniidrcd and
fifty-llvo miles from St. Louis, nt 0.20
o'clock last night, tho (Miglncor saw roido
obstruction on tho track, nml liiHlanlly nri
JiUod the air brnkos, but loo Into, for on
reaching the spot where the obstruction
wai the enltio and baggage car left the
track aud plunged down au cmbatikincut
of forty, foot. Mamuel Hichardson, tho
fireman, aud Dr. K. L, AtkiiiHoti, who was
on the engine, was iustaiitly killed, and
Frank Cotton, the onglneer, was so badly
injured that he died lu two hour?.
Conductor Wilson stiirlod for another
engine, and on tho way henrd a pifttol shot,
and a ball punned through his hat. Buvernl
othor shotB were flrod, ami passengoiB nity
that tlicy saw live men standing uoar, who
vrora revealed by tho Hushes from thoir
pistols, but no ono wus hit. Two bulls
passed through tho haggago car.
On examining tho track it wns found
that two fish bars connecting tho ra(is on
both sides of the track had been disjointed,
and the ends of tho rails moved so that tho
train would luu down the embankmont.
The shots lived and the mini seen loavo no
doubt that this was a diabolical scheme to
run the whole traiu down tho bank, rob
the express oar aud plunder tho passougors.
That It was not carried out may be ex
plained by the fuot that tho night was in
tensely dark, that it ratuod heavily, aud
that the train was only running at a spcod
of about ton miles au hour. Ho cluo to
the perpetrators of tho floudish act has boon
" CANKER IN THE BUD."
You watch its dovolopmont with expect
ant solicitude the cuoico, exquisitely
moulded bud which promises to unfold
with the perfect flower. You perhaps
think how it will adorn tho drawing-room
vase, and anticipato tho showing it to your
ilower-loving friends. But some morning
you llud its head drooping, its fragrance
tied, and an ugly purple spot on one of the
delicately-tinted petals. It is tho poet's
"canker in tho bud." How often the
loathsome canker blights the cherished
"infant blossoms" in our household gardens
those human buds which give earnest of
a brilliant future. The noisome canker, so
long concealed scrofula at longth reveals
its droadod presence and to our bright hopes
succeeds the most agonizing foar, for wo
know the fatal sequel it portends pulmo
nary consumption. It is estimated by em
inent modicaf authorities that at least ono
Jlfth of mankind are atllicted with this
insidious malady. But its ravages are bo
secret, that even its victims are unaware of
its presence until it suddenly discloses
itself in some of its myriad aud oft-times
fatal forms. A slight cutaneous eruption
is often tho only indicator of its presonco.
The only means of exterminating this
disease from the system is by a thorough
course of constitutional treatment. This
treatment must fulfill three indications,
namely, promote nutrition, alter or purify
the blood, and arrest disorganization of the
tissues and the formation of tubercles. No
more efficient alterative can be employed
for these purposes than Dr. l'ierco's
Medical Discovery. While imparting
strength aud tone to tho digestive organs
it clcanBos the blood and heals thedisoasod
tissue. Test its virtues ore the deadly
canker has blighted the life you prize.
, A Wife's Suicide.
Hawlkt, Pa., May 81. -Mrs. Daniel
Eunzerman out her throat with a butcher
knife between the hours of 2 and 3 o'clock
this morning. On the evening previous,
while lady callers were at her house, Mrs.
Eunzerman complained of her head feeling
strangely. At their usual time the family
retired, and were soon lost in sloop. At
about 8 o'clock Mr. Eunzerman was
awakened by their little child, who was
lying by his . side, and reaching to the
opposite side of the bed to awaken his
wife, he discovered that she was not in hor
usual plaoe. The bed was cold, showing
that she had been up some time. Mr.
Eunzerman immediately arose and went to
search for her. He soon ascertained that
the outside doors were all locked, but that'
the door leading to the pantry was open.
At the foot of the cellar stops he found bis
wife in a sitting position,with a gash across
her throat nearly six inches in length, en
tirely severing the windpipe, and a large
butcher's knife by ber side. About two
years ago this family lost by death three
interesting children, and thereafter the
mother was not herself.
' The first of the drink-registering
apparatuses, which a new law says must be
used in all Virginia bar-rooms, has been
put In operation In Richmond. It is a
wooden box, about a cubic foot In size.
On one side is a crank, and on another dials
like those of a gas meter. The bar-keeper
turns the crank once round at every sale
of a drink, a bell strikes, and the dial
registers one. The object of the device is
to determine the amount of tax to be
collected, at the rate of oiie cent on every
drink. Although a heavy fine may be
imposed for neglect to use these machines
properly, or for tampering with them In
any way and there are officers whose
duty it is to detect such offences the
belief is that they will not answer the
purpose, because drinkers will generally
connive at violations of the law.
