Eugene Cronin 14 year old, son of
Thilllp Cronin of 8503 Fift'i aronuj was
run over by electric motor car 41 in
front of the Moline avenue car barn ai
10:30 this rooming. The boy, who lives
across Thirty-fifth street from tbe barns.
was playing about the track as was bis
wont and engaged at t .is pirticular time
in playiug with a dog directly between
the rails of tbe west bound track. Car
41 had just came down from Moline in
charge of Motorman William Smith and
Conductor E i. Roche. It happened at
the time of tbe day when one detail of
motermen change on reaching the barn.
Moterman William Smith was relieved by
Moterman A. J Smith. The latter had
just switched in tbe current and
started when the accident occurred.
The car struck the boy and threw him
upon the rail, the front wheel
passias over one foot, and the bwfc
wheel Itie oibtr. Tho boy was picked up
by street car employes who rushed out of
tbe barns and carried into bis home near
by and where Doctors Paul, of this city,
and Hotfla, of Davenport, were sum
mooed. It was 'ound upon examination that a
wheel had passed over the instep of the
left foot, crushing all the bones, while
the sole of the foot was split open, while
awheel had pised over the iostep of tbe
right foot in pretty much the same man
ner, crumbing the bones and ripping the
topopeB. The wounded members were
dressed, and amputation of both feet will
undoubtedly be the ultimate outcome,
though no operation was performed to
day. The boy, it is exptcted, will sur

Motorman Smith says he did not sec
the boy on the track until be was almost
on top of him, and that then he rang his
gong and screamed." The boy claims the
gong did not ring at all, and thtt be did
not know the car was coming until it had
passed over him. The boy exhibits much
courige in his misfortune and stiff -ring,
and has maintained composure from tbe
first. It is s'ltt-d that be is sain-what
deficient, mentally speaking, though not
very noticeatly so. His fate is another
sad and dreadful warning to children not
to play on or near railway tracks, a lesson
which it seems hard to learn, eren by dear
experitaoe. Assistant Sapt. Hill states
that tbe boy was in the hib.r of
playing about the barn, and that he bad
repeatedly been warned to be careful
about getting in the way of tbe cars.
Mr. Hill also says that boys are constant
ly hanging onto tbe cirs and that were i:
not for the conductors there wou'.d be
more accidents than there are.
What makes this case doubly sad is
that the poor boy's mother is lying - very
low with consumption.

STARVING PEASANTS IN RUSSIA.

Leaves of the Forests.
LoXDON', Sept. 3. From St. Petersburg
comes more hideous uev.s of the suffer
ings of tbe starving peasantry. In the
valley of tho Volga emaciated wretches
can be seen feeding, like beasts, on the
grass of the fields, while others resort to
the forests and chew leaves to assuage the
pangs of hunger. When a boat is seen on
the river, tbe people of whole villages line
the banks earnestly pleading for assist
ance. Tbe government is acting with nil
the vigor possible, but the absolute dearth
of supplier makes it difficult to send relief
to many pieces where it is badly needed.
Even the army feels tbe pinch, and at re
mote posts rations have been reduced
from a third to a half.

Suspension Bkidoe, X. Y., .Sept. 3.
The usually quiet villace of Clifton, Ont.,
was treated to a novel battle Wtiveen the
town authorities and the Michigan Cen
tral railroad on Monday. There has been
ill-feeling between the town and the rail
road and tbe latter refused the town the
privilege of laying a water main under its
tracks. Tbe town put a force of laborers
at work excavating and tbe railroad put
another gang at work dumping grael:
into the excavotion. Finually the town
authorities ordered out the fire compa
nies. The water-works pump was started
and tbe nozzles of a number of lines of
hose were turned on tbe railroad men.
Things were lively fo' a time, but the
railroad gang was finally vanquished.
