yesterday experienced a' little excite

government bridge entrance, and ac-
etirdinir to the story told by some of
Ihe spectators, a disastrous accident
was averted by the prompt action of
the trainmen in charge of a "Q." train
which was just pulling out of the city.
The street car motor, and trailers
had passed up the incline to the bridge
entrance, when a burned out dynamo
cut off the power. Owing to the slip
pery condition of the tracks caused
by the falling snow, the cars began to
slide backward, though the motorman
had screwed up the brakes to the ut
most. The passenger train had stop
ped for the crossing just after the
street cars had passed, ami was mov
ing slowly over the tracks when the
street cars began their retrograde
movement. Some of the workmen
fearing there would be a smashup,
succeeded in fjcttinir out of the trail
ers before they stopped, but the pas
senger was brought to a standstill be
fore the rear trailer backed down
against the baggage car. The arsenal
men immediately put their shoulders
to the cars and pushed them up away
f rom the train.

most degrading oi ail auman diseases is Contagious Blood Poison. The.
serpent sinks its fangs into the flesh and almost instantly the poison passes'
through the tntire body. Contagious Blood Poison, beginning with a little
ulcer, soon contaminates every drop of blood and spreads throughout the
whole system. Painful swellings appear in the groins, a red rash and
copper colored splotches breakout on the body, the mouth and throat
become ulcerated, and the hair and eye brows fall out ; but these svmptoms
are mild compared to the wretchedness and suffering that come in the latter
stages of the disease when it attacks the bones and more vital parts of the
body 1 1S that Contagious Blood Poison is seen ia all its hideous
