ONE ENGINEER'S EXPERIENCES.
Be Has Killed Twenty-two Persons, bat la
Regarded a a Safe Man.
"Lafayette Truman, engineer of the
Erie train that ran into the eastern
Illinois train, has killed 22 men," said
C. R. McCullough, a brother engineer
of the Chicago and Erie road, at the
Clifton, "but," he continued, "in no
case was he to blame, and in every
case he has been exonerated by the
jury. Most of these killings were at
railroad crossings and in other similar
accidents where the engineer couM
not be held resjjonsible. He is only
a young man, but I want to relate
two experiences of his which show
him to be possessed of a marvelous
presence of mind.
"In October, 1890, he was engineer
of a train that was dashing through
burning forests near Lima. O., at the
rate of 00 miles an hour. That night
the sky was concealed by black storm
clouds, and before the burning dis
trict was reached the darkness from
the window of the cars seemed im
penetrable. Then, ns the train pro
ceeded, the horizon lecame hazily
red. As the train sped on nearer, the
blood red clouds appeared to Ik? tum
bling about tumultuously, as if it were
a sea of fire buffeted by angry winds.
At length the train seemingly plunge I
into the heart of this forest of fire.
"There was a straight stretch of
track continuing for seven miles. As
thetrf.in dashed along, the fire sprang
up in sheets from crackling, falling
trees on either side, and above was a
canopy of shifting, eddying red smoke.
Down the track, beyond the reach of
the headlight, there was only a red
blur. A bridge spanning a deep river
was ahead somewhere. Suddenly,
immediately in front, Truman saw a
shower of big sparks fly upward. In
an instant he was reversing his en
gine, and the train was brought to a
standstill just on the edge of the
river. It had flashed over him when
he saw the sparks that the bridce
was burning, and that a spar had
fallen, sending Up as it went down a
show of light. He saved the train
and the lives of 300 passengers. There
is not one engineer in a thousand who
would have arrived at the conclusion
so quickly that the additional transi
tory light was from the bridge burn
ing. They would have supposed it
was an inconsequential part of the
"phenomena and plunged on to de
"The other incident, while not sur
rounded by the popular herolike
aspect lent by the forest fire and the
run through it, was no less heroic
and 6howed a far greater presence of
mind. This was in Ohio, too, near
Hepburn. His train this time was
running at about the same rate, 60
miles an hour, when the rods on each
side of the engine broke, instantly
killing the fireman and wrecking
the cab. 1 raman. to save himself,
jumped into the tender. And there
he was isolated, as it were, the broken
rods flying madly and beating deafen -ingly,
and it was impossible for him
to reach an airbrake with the train
going at that speed. He is only a
young man, but he did something
then that many old engineers have
since told me they would never have
thought of . He gut out his pocket
knife and cut tlie hose, thereby ap
plying the automatic brake, and suc
ceeded in stopping the train. I would
rather ride ltehind that man," con
eluded Mr. McCullough, "than any
engineer in the United States." Chi

There are certain plants which pro

sonous honey, but also poisonous
wax. Cases often occur of persons
being made ill after eating honey,
and the cause is sometimes attributed
to indigestion, but more frequently
the cause is found in the honey itself,

THREE LIVES LOST BY FIRE.
All of Them Little Children A Fireman
CHICAGO, April 13. TLree children lost
their lives and a fireman was badly injured
at 36 Cheney court last night. The dead
are: Olga Jensen, 5 years old; George Jen
sen, 3 years old; Edward Jensen, 7 months
eld. Fireman Albert C. Gehreke was
struck unconscious by a falling scantling
and removed to his home. Neither of the
parents of the children was at home at the
time. Mrs. Jensen had begun preparations
for the evening meal, lighting a gasoline
stove for that purpose.
Canaed by the Gasoline Stove.
She then left the house to go to a butch
er shop, leaving the three small children
in the kitchen. The flames were discover
ed shortly after her departure by firemen
whose quarters are near by. ' They went
to work at once, but did not know that
the infants were in the struct uie until some
ime after, when the charred bodies were
found. The mother is in a crazed condition
over her loss. Three buildings were dam
aged, being two-story frame residences.
The total loss will not exceed f3,0a0, which
includes $350 in money, the earnings of
Mr. Jensen which he kept at home.

Dr. O. C. Osgood,
Castoria is the best remedy for children of

interest of their children, and use Castoria in
stead of the various quack nostrums which are
destroying their loved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
agents down their throats, thereby sending
