TENDER OF NEW YORK EXPRESS DERAILED Strength of Chains A!on Prevented Serieus Disaster. West Cornwall, Conn.. May 26. Rusin? alon? at sixty miles an hour, the New York express over the Berk shire division of the New York, New Haven & Hartford railroad, with pas sengers aooard for Canaan, Lenox, and Piu'slield, was brought to a stop on the eape or a ditch, this afternoon, by brakes st ay Engineer Harry Grant after the tender had b2tn derailed by a broken journal.

At the siding here was the accommodation train from New Haven and ten minutes aft er the express went by the report came that the express was -in the ditch. The rumor created intense ex citement for a few minutes until the facts were ascertained, and the wreck, ers ordered up from W'aterbury.

The tracks were cleared late today, the tender being dumped into a nearby field and the tracks temporarily re paired, so that the express, which was split in two sections, arrived here shortly after six o'clock. Up to the time of the clearing of the tracks pas sengers were transferred both. Ways. HENWOOD MUST STAND A TRIAL FOR MURDER. Killed Von Phul in Quarrel Over a Woman in a Barroom.

The man In 'business who counts is the man behind the counter, the man who makes the sales. Advertising facilitates sales by talking up the goods and it is the least expensive medium for working "up trade. It saves time, increases the attraction, extends the zone of Influence and saves the cost of a travelling salesman. What the publisher sells the advertiser is blank space and the value of this space to business defpencls wholly upon the one who talks through it. Advertisers say where there are no re sults that the advertising medium 13 no good when really the failure is wholly on the part of the writer who fills this blank space. It is up i to him to attract attention to his busirtess and to excite a desire upon ' the part of the reader for the goods; and newspaper space that is aiot used right is very likely to be a loss, and to give the advertiser a wrong opinion of a newspaper instead of a correct opinion of his in ability to say things which excite trade. The snecessity for having this space mad as profitable as possible gave rise to the professional writer, of advertisements and these men are a force in trade and most of the large stores employ them. The art of advertising rests upon an honest representation of the goods and the goods which show the advertisement was ot an exaggeration or false pretence. Any dealer who can make his goods and his announcements balance perfectly has the art.

DIAZ SLIPS AVAY Secretly Leaves Mexican Capital inDisgt&a in Early Hours TO SAIL FOR SPAIN Detachment of Infantry Accompanies Him on His Trip Over Narrow Guage Railroad Unfrequented Streets Used to Reach the Station Madero Resigns as Pro visional President Urges Support of De La Barra. .Mexico City, May 26. Porfirio Diaz, for wbom for thirty years all Mexico stood to one side, stole from the cap ital early today. Only a few devoted friends whom he dared trust followed liim to the railroad station at 2 o'clock this morning, shortly after the cele bration over- his . resignation had quieted down. To Take Ship for Spain. Diaz was bound for Vera Cruz to take ship for Spain. In the distance h3 could hear the voices of a few cf the more enthusiastic citizens who were still acclaiming the new presi dent, Francisco Leon De La Barra, and shouting "Viva Madero." The Trip Secretly Made. So carefully were the arrangements made for the deposed president's se cret escape that th3 fact did not be come public until late today. Secrecy was due less to apprehension of a popular outburst than to a desire to reach V?ra Cruz before marauders along the routa could learn of the trip. Mexican Railroad Tracks Torn Up. Travel between Mexico City and Vera Cruz is usually over, the Mexican railroadj a standard gauge line with modern eauipment. But rails along this route have frequently been re moved of late by bandits. These ban dits were determined that Diaz, for reasons best known to themselves, should not leave the capital. They are reported to have harbored the idea that Diaz would follow the precedents of other Latin American presidents and carry the national funds with him. Traveled on Narrow Gauge. There is also a narrow gauge rail road to the coast. Taking it for grant ed that Diaz would take the more lux urious route, the bandits did not mo lest the marrow gauge road.
