to us all tne verities of Christ's religion, and

St Louis express No. 5 which left Albany at
10 o'clock last night, met with a bed accident
about two miles east of bare about midnight
The first aectioa broke down and stopped for
repairs. Tbe rear brakeman was sent back
to signal tba second section, but for some
unknown reason failed to perform hie duty.
The engineer of the second section says he
11 l not see him and tbe first thing be saw
waa tbe lights of tbe first section directly in
bis front Tba first section waa made up of
heggage, mail expree and and three pas
senger cars, packed with people, an I a Wag
ner sleeper, on the end. Tbe crash was
terrible. The second section telescoped into
the first section, knocking out the lights and
plunging everything into darkness.
Four Bodies Recovered.
Up to 2 a. m four bodies had been taken
out of the sleeper and six wounded, and it was
feared the total number of deaths would run
up to twenty-five and possibly more, as the
r was fulL It is difficult to get part icu
srs. Engineer Worth, of the second section,
was subsdiy injured that he was not expected
to survive the night He resid-s in Al
iMny. Twenty Killed. Twa Haodred Wounded.
Latlk. Il is known that many other peo
have -rished, aud the total nnmljer of
deaths is placed this morning at not less
than twenty. As the sleeping car waa crowd
ed with passengers, however, fears are en
tertained that the death list may far exceed
that number. Nearly everyliody on both
trains was more or h hurt, and the num
ber of those seriously injured will almost
certainly reach .
Arter the Terrific Crash.
As a result of the terrific crash tba sncond
section telescoped the first, knocking out all
the lights on both trains and plunging both
into complete darkness. In the inky dark
nees thus suddenly produced the horror-
stricken passengers w to escaped with their
lives raised terrible streams and cries
for belp, many of them being pinned
down and held on tbe floor of
the various wrecked cars. As soon as those
who escaped unhurt were able to colleet
themselves tbey hastened to render what as
sistance tbey could, but in tbe black dark -ness
which prevailed they were unable to
direct their efforts to the beat advantage.
Tbe result is balieved to have been that sev

Bad riara for aa Acs-ident.
Tbe wreck could not have occurred in a
more unfavorable place. On tbe left in the
pitchy darkneas and fifty fe-t below, was the
roaring Mohawk. Not a light could be seen
except those in tbe ccbea. The lights in
the streets bad all been extinguished. One-
hair or the passengers were awakened from
a sound sleep to find themselves wrapped in
gloom. For awhile the pepla were too
da led to do anything Tha trainmen were
mute and reserved, as usual under such cir
cumstances. It is impossible at this writing
to give names or actual number of victims.
Beading Forward the Doctora.
The fl-t news to Palatine Bridge was
brought by T. IL Coleman, of HorneUsviile,
who cover jsi tbe two miles over the railway
ties in less than half an hour. Tbe village
was asleep, but Mr. Coleman, by tbe assist
ance of an officer, went from bouse to bouse
awakening surgeons, who were hurried to
tbe front as rapidly as vehicles could take
them. All trains east and west freight and
pasa-nger, ware held at Palatine. Within
half an hour every doctor had gone forward
and assistance had been teU-graphed for from
Fonda and Little Fall.
A Worse INawster Averted.
It was just by a miracle that tbe disaster
was not rendered tenfold more terrible.
Within fire minutes after the crash tlie
rnept ex proas came tearing along on tbe
fourth track at the rale of thirty miles an

Nw York, Sept 2"i Maggie Stewart is
a girl n t yet 15 years old, about whom there
a wonderful story to tell Bbe has trav
eled from Scotland to this city without pay
ing cunt for fare, and the accouut of her
wanderings, so far as anybody can find out,
is a story of alisolute facta. Maggie is a
Scotch lass. Her eyes are bright and blue.
and she always bas a smile upon ber lips.
She is just about the right height for a 15-year-old
girL Maggie's father and mother
lived at Ellenburgh, little town near Glas
gow, Scotland. The Scotch girl didn't like
work, and one day last July ran away. She
walked out of F.lletibutgli, and picked up
wagon -ridex to Uiasgow.
Heats Her Way on tha Train.
She went to a railroal station and walked
out to where a train of cars was standing
and made her way into a first class compart
ment As a lady was coming right behind
ber tbe guards thought it was all right.
After she had traveled as long as she cared
to she got out and found herself iu tbe town
of tireenock. This place didn't suit her any
more than Ellensburgh or Glasgow. She
went down to tbe wharvea and by and by
found tiHistlf in Belfast, Ireland. From
there she crossed to Fleetwood, a place of
mine 5,(til inhabitants on Morecambe bay,
England; from there to Manchester, and
from there back to Fleet woo. L Then she
got a sail to tbe Isle of Mau, stayed there
just a few hours, and then left for Liver
pool, which she reached in due time.
Takes an iteean Trip Gratis.
While wandering about the city the girl
found herself down at a wharf from which ,
emigrants were being taken on board an
ocean liner. Twenty or thirty men and
women were passing down the gangway to
the boat, and Maggie joined them and went
aboard, nobody asking her any questions.
After a little while the tui left tlie dock and
steamed off to the City of Nhw York, and the
runaway was 1 fted up t' e side of the vessel
with all the care lstow-e,i u(on people who
had bought their pissae ovjr. Maggie
kept close to a lady with a kind face, and
made friends with her and accepted an in
vitation from the lady to take a bunk in her
state-room tbat she had sivare.
Her Arrival in New York.
The girl male herself perf.vtly at home,
a at tbe tabla with th rest of tbe folks,
and every bod v, even the purs-r and tbe
steward and all their assistants, thought she
waa the chil l of somebody on board, and so
everything went along all right VI ben the
steamer Ian did here no one paid any partic
ular attentiou to the little girl, and she
came down the gang plank without being
bothered w ith any questions atsut ber ticket,
and without any rus:om bouse inspector
asking to lot k at her laggage. Tbe wan
derer walked about the streets fear lass and
light heart! t ine day stie called at an in

yesterday morniug when the members of the
Army of the Tennessee reluctantly left tbe
dining hal! of the Burnet bouse at the close
of tiie most enjoyable meeting ever held by
tbesociet). Oeu. O. O. Howard, wbo was
the last rtgular speaker, had roused them
to a high pitch of enthusiasm by bis perora
tion. Atlanta Is Ours.
He spoke to the toast, "Atlanta is Ours
and Fairly Won," and in closing said: "Tbe
cry, 'Atlanta is ours,' made us see witb
brighter visions our homes, aud we f .joked
with lively hopes for a speedy return. And
all tbe force of tbe inspiring sentiment rings
in tbe ears of the surviving veterans of to
day. So thay say to our governors, our
guard ans, Atlauta is ours; do not let it be
again lost to us, lost to the country, lost to
litsfrty. To burn ther. a pure, noble, one
armed comrale in effixy is not a goo I deed,
not a good si-n. It does not lessen tbe law
less i ffense that be is an officer of the United

The readers of the Daily Argus will
be pleased to learn tbat there is at least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able cure in all its stages, and that
is catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure is tbe
only positive cure now known to the
medical fraternity. Catarrh being a
constitutional disease, requires a consti
tutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure
is taken internally, acting directly upon
the blood and mucus surfaces of the sys
tem, thereby destroying the foundation
of tbe disease, and giving the patient
strength, by building up the constitution
and assisting nature in doing its work.
Tbe proprietors have ao much faith in its
curative powers, that they offer one hun
dred dollars for any case that it fails to
cure. Send for list of testimonials. Ad
