The suit for $5,000 damages against
the Tri City Railway company brought
by Joseph Burgart of South Rock Is
land was lost late yesterday afternoon
when the jury brought in a verdict fav
oring the defendant. The Jurors had
been in session nearly all day and ap
parently they found considerable
difficulty In making up their verdict,

was baaed upon injuries which he re
ceived three years ago when his horse
became freightened at a Long View
street car and ran away, throwing him
out of his rig and breaking a leg. He
claimed that the motorman of the car
had not exercised proper precautions
to prevent the horse's becoming fright
ened, but the jury took another view of
it. S. R. Kenworthy appeared for Mr.
j Burgart and Searle and Marshall rep
resented the corporation.

SECOND COLD WAVE
OF WEEK HELD BACK
This morning in the city public
schools the plan for starting savings
bank accounts for the pupils to
teach them frugality, was inaugurat
ed and the favor with which the plan
lias been received by parents and
the enthusiasm of the young people,
augurs well for the success of the
venture. Superintendent II. Ii. Hay
The amount rlaced on deposit there
'was $37.90. The total amount re
ceived from all the schools was
OM K K II H KKH.
It is the intention of the author
ities to have the children bring
their deposits once each week, on
Friday morning, and the teacher
will devote a part of that day to
receiving the money and giving the
proper number of stamps in return.
Each child who brings a deposit re
ceives from the teacher of the room
a stamp folder and for each penny
deposited the pupil receives a stamp
which is' equivalent to the amount.
Each stamp folder holds 50 of these
stamps and when the book has been
filled it is taken to the State savings
bank, the depository of the schools,
and a bank book is issued. When the
child has filled one book credit is
given and another folder is started.
All money ia first given to the
teacher and after the latter has given
proper credit to the children a re
port and money received 1b given to
