Tea Came to Be?
?J First a price was fixed, below which no
really GOOD tea can be sold.
Q Next, all teas selling at this price were cupped and
tested for quality.
Finally, a blend was perfected, at least 25 per cent better than
the best of these tested teas, and the result was called
to match the superb coffee by that name.

from New York, due to arrive at Cor

engines, a baggage car, three Pullmans
and two day coaches, In the order
named, was demolished at Gibson,
three miles east of Corning, at 5.25
o'clock this morning by express train
No. 11, due at Corning at 6:10 A. M.
Forty-one persons were killed and be

Many of the victims were holiday
excursionists bound to Niagara Falls,
who had boarded the trains at points
along the line.
Road's Worst Wreck.
The wreck was the worst In the his
tory of the road. Its cause, according
to Engineer Schroder, of the express,
was his failure to see signals set
against bis train. The morning was
foggy and he said he could not make
The wrecked train stood on the main
track blocked by a crippled freight
train. There was no flag out, accord
ing to Engineer Schroder. The sig
nals which Engineer Schroder declar
ed it was too foggy to sec were just
around a curve. The flying express
plunged past them and crashed into
the rear of No. 9 bringing death to over
two-score of its passengers.

Schroder had taken No. 11, nt El

minutes late. The stretch of track from'
Elmlra to Corning is fitted for fast
running and he wds sending his train
along at <)?"? miles^an hour. No. 9 was
supposed to be half an hour ahead of
him. He had no warning until he
made out the rear, coach of No. 9
through the fog. ?lien he throw the
reverse without shutting off steam.
The jerk threw the train off the
track and the locomotive plunged on
to splinter tho two day coaches lilled

the last of the Pulmans. Schroder said
the Impact threw him from the cab
and landed him on his shoulder on the'
roadbed practically unhurt.
The 100-ton monster continued its
plunge through the middle of the train
grinding everything in Its path. When
finally blocked by the debris, It re
mained on the roadbed In the midst of
the desolation It had caused, while
hundreds of persons rushed In every
kind of vehicle to lift and pry the dead
and Injured from the tangled mass of
Taking advantage of the holiday ex
cursion rates to Buffalo and Niagara
Falls, many excursionists had boarded
No. 9 at all points from Iloboken, in
cluding Seranton, Blnghnmton and El

was reached the train carried so many
passengers that a second engine was
attached. Ions before extra freight

pulled out of Elmlra.
"Dead" Engine Blocks Track.
When the heavy grade at Gibson was
reached, a drawhead was pulled out
and No. 61 was crippled. Signals which
she put out stopped No. 9. The first
engine was uncoupled and set at work

to push the "dead" engine of the

minutes, to pass. The work was slow,
and during the wait many passengers
from the day coaches got out.
Meanwhile the signals had been
thrown against No. 11. These failed
to stop the express and the crash fol
Rescuers were quickly on the scene.
In what seemed an Incredibly short
time, hundreds of automobiles had
lined the highway which led to the
wreck and the work of getting the In

the morgues was impeded by the block

Scenes of Horror.
At the Corning Hospital, which has
accommodations for only forty pa
tients, some of the Injured had to lay
upon the floors until physicians could
give them attention. Those who vis
ited the scene of the wreck, before the
hospital forces had time to finish th'e
work of removal, witnessed many
scenes of horror.
One man picked up a small white
sheet, which lay on the ground, only
to draw back ashed face, as his act
revealed the body of an unidentified
baby only a few months old.

* COTTON KED SPIDER, *
Even now In some fields the red
spider is beginning to do its damage
and this will become more evident as
our warmer and drier summer weath
er comes on. This damage can be
recognized by the reddish discolora
tion of the leaf of the plant Infested,
beginning at the base of the leaf where
the stem Is attached and spreading out
over the entire leaf. Different from
the damage done by what Is known as
"cotton rust", the leaves affected by
the red spider shrivel and drop off.
The so-called red spider Is not a spid
er at all, but a little red mite, which
cu*i into the leaf and sucks the sap
out of the plant.
Infestation will be observed to begin
usually near the edge of the field. This
is due to the fact that the spiders pass
through the winter on green vegeta
tion, such ns we commonly find about
the edges of fields and along ditch
banks. When the cotton has become
well started, they wander on to this
and begin to spread. They lay num
bers of reddish colored eggs on the
under surface .of the leaf, and spin
over these a flue web to hold them
selves to the leaf while at work and
to protect their young. Various agen
cies, such as the plow going through
the field, a stray dog, or the wind, dis
tribute the pests for a distance often
of many yards.
From these facts It can be clearly
seen that a good remedy for the red
spider is a preventive one?to keep
iown by fall turning of the land the
green weeds common about edges of
the field. The next precaution to ob
serve Is not to let the pest get the
start. Spray the Infested area with a
one percent: lime sulphur solution.
Make up the same kind of solution you
used for a winter spray for the scale
on your peach and apple trees and di
lute this about twelve times. If you
do not recall how to make this solu
tion, full Information will be furnish
ed upon request by the Division of
Entomology, Clemson College, S. C. If
you have the commercial lime-sulphur
solution, dilute 09 parts of water to
1 of the solution. Apply this with a
stray pump with Vermorel or Misty
nozzle producing a fine mist and get
this to cover the under side of the
leaves thoroughly. Should a spray
pump not be available, use an old
broom or something of this type and
attempt the same thing. If these steps
are taken as soon as the form begins
to spread, it is a comparatively easy
matter to control the pest; but if de
layed it is almost an Impractical mat
ter for a farmer in his early season
to treat a whole acre even with a good
barrel spray pump. The red spider
will be noted as of much more damage
during dry weather than when we have
plenty of rain; and often, though not
always, a good, heavy shower Is bet
ter than any remedial measure man
