ENGINEER DYER'S FATE.
How Ha Herolcallr Met Death la e Back
- The wreck on the Chicago, Rock
Island & Pacific road near Brooklyn
early yesterday morning and its at
tending fatality has been the one
sutjict ef discussion among railroad
men, many of whom have yet to wit
ness snch disaster following a col
lision in this vicinity, and all of
whom bow their heads in sorrow
over the death of one of their oldest
associates and loving friends Engi
neer James W. Dyer.
Engineer Dyer came to his death
in a more tragic manner than at
rst contemplated. When he was
found in death he was seated in the
cab at a poise similar to that when
he was guarding the destiny of the
panting locomotive. His body was
terribly mangled, both legs being
almost severed just above the knee,'
and there were cruel wounds on his
body, head and face. It was appar
ent that Mr. Dyer did not stir when
warned of his approaching fate, but
remained faithfully at his post. He
did not for a moment teem to con
sider his own safety. Hediedahe-p,
and as he had lived, with thoughts
only of duty.
W. H. Stocks, master mechanic of
the east Iowa division, visited the
scene of the wreck. He says he can
not remember whea be saw two en
gines so badly smashed in a wreck.
The locomotives were traveling at a
rate of about thirty-five miles an
hour when they met. The 662, at
whose throttle Engineer Dyer was
stationed, cut into the 553 up to the
tender, as a result of which both lo
comotives were twisted into all
kinds of shapes. It is gener
ally believed that the cause of the
accident lies with the train dis
patcher's ollico nt Grinnell. Here
Conductor Black and Engineer
Dyer saould have received orders to
sidetrack at Malconi and await the
passage of the wect-bound freight. Ia
the absence of orders. Epgineer Dyer,
taking it for granted that he had a
clear track to Brooklyn, opened wide
the throttle of the 6G2 aud let her
get in her beet licks, the orders being
to always make all prssibl4 ppeett
with a meat train. At the fame
time Engineer Gillmore, w:th the
55:.', was speeding along with orders
tj meet the east-bound train at Mal
coni. He had likewise opened wide
the throttle of bis engine, his desire
being to reach Malcom an soon as
possible, that the meat train might
not be delayed on the side track.
About a mile wst of Brooklyn
there is, as stated yesterday, a slight
curve and nn incline. Here the en
gines met. Brakeman Alevirjder was
in the cab with Engineer Dyer and
Fireman Negus. He realized, a he
suddenly saw the flssh ahead, that it
would only be a moacent until the
engines would meet in disastrous
Boys!" he shouted, "you'll have
jump for your lives!"
With that Brakeman Alexander
and Fireman Kegas bounded into
space. Engineer Dyer did not even
answer when wsrned of the impend
ing danger. He leaned over and
reversed the lever, and put on
the airbrake, then sitting back
in the seat, he faced the fast an
poaching monster. Engineer Gill.

tvrenched back. Mr. Gillmore was
quite severely bruised. Fireman Ne
gus escaped with a sprained right
wrist, while Brakeman Alexa-der
was badly scratched in the face.
Conductors Black and Settle and
Brakemen Clarence Uibbaxd, J. W.
Forter and W. V. Lawrence, also
jumped, but escaped injuries. The
engines came together, with a terri
fic crash, the truck of the 552 being
hurled into the cab of the CC2 and
striking Engineer Dyer with such
force as to almost sever his both tegs.

Of the many anecdotes illustrating

classmates, John BozmauKerr of Mary
Mr. Kerr was as aristocratic in his
notions as Holmes himself, and was eo
unusually particular about the spelling
of his name that it became a laughing
matter with the students. Twenty vears
after the class had graduated Mr. "Kerr
had occasion to visit Boston, and while
there called upon his old classmate,
then grown famous. When Mr. Kerr
was cshered into Holmes' study, the
poet hurried forward, and, seizing his
old friend with both hand?, cried hearti

We say the old way, bnt really it

usually taken; in other words the
starvation plan is by many supposed
to be the firet'essential.
The almost certain failure of the
starvation cure for dyspepsia has
been proved time and again, bnt still
the moment dyspepsia makes its ap
