Liberal Dividends
For a Life Time.
If you are looking for an opportunity to
make an Investment free from the dangers
and chances of speculative projects you
should investigate the merits of the
Tabasco Plantation company, whose home
offices are in the Lumber Exchange build
ing, (Minneapolis. This company has a
seven thousand acre plantation in the
Republic of Mexico, which is already
producing a substantial revenue derived
from coffee, cacao, rubber, cattle and
sugar cane now being raised there, and it
will pay its shareholders substantial divi
dends for their investment during the en
tire period of seven years required for
bringing the rubber trees to the state of
maturity when they can be safely tapped.
Few people, by merely saving their
earnings, have ever accumulated enough
to support them comfortably in advanced
years. It is by carefully investing each
dollar where it will not only be safe, but
•where it will accumulate other dollars,
that 'bounteous Incomes are secured. Even
a little money invested in this company
cannot fail to provide a snug income for
life, besides every dollar's worth of stock
will increase many fold in value.
Equal consideration is given large or
small investors, and those who desire to
share in the stock should make applica
tion immediately, either in person or by
letter. When this stock is sold no more
can be secured. One of the great aims of
human activity is to provide a revenue for
future needs. The fear of old age, with
its frailty and inability, leads almost
everyone to work hard and long so that
when old age does come it will be a time
of ease and comfort. The very fact that
the cultivation of the rubber tree for in
dustrial purposes is one of the most prof
itable industries in the world, will bear
out the above recommendations.
The company has issued a handsome
folder, which has several elegant .photo
graphs of Its plantation, and gives valu
able information concerning the rubber
Industry. It is sent free to any one for
the asking. For further particulars ad

Grand Forks, X. D., Nov. Near
Walsh Center, Walsh county, a year-and
a-half-old child of J. F. Kouba died as
the result of a swallow of butter color
which it took from a bottle. The father
took a swallow from the same bottle to

Wreckage < ate he a Fire.
To add to the horror, the wreckage
caught fire instantly, and in a short time
the bodies of the dead and those of the
injured who were pinned down were being
The scene which followed was heart
rending. The spot where the wreck oc
curred was In the open country with but
one farmhouse near by and facilities for
aiding the injured were extremely in
adequate As soon as the news of the dis
aster reached Superintendent Burns here
a relief train was dispatched to the scene
with a score or more of surgeons on board.
Farmers from near by and those who
escaped from the wreck alive made
heroic efforts to rescue the less fortunate.
The condition of the wreck. was such
that In the darkness it was impossible
to render immediate aid.

Number of Dead Approaches 100.
The emigrants who were lucky enough
to get out alive were unable to speak
English and could give no intelligent esti
mate of the number of people in each emi
grant car. The conductor of the train
could not be found and on this account
the list of _ut__tie« 1b iucoj_pa_t* and
the estimate of the nu_Jb_r of -sad 1*
only approximately pcm-wct. But lie rail
road doctors and others present agreed
that the number approaches 100.
When the relief trains arrived, as many
of the injured as could be carried were
taken to Montpeller Ohio., Peru, Ind.; and
to the hospital at Adrian.
The scene in the neighborhood of the
wreck was terrible. In the semi-darkness,
illuminated only by the glare of the fire
from the wreckage, men tumbled about
over corpses which' fell from the ruins
and which, after the flames had died out,
were hauled from the debris. There they
lay in confused heaps along the track.
Farmers from the surrounding country
and people from the near-by villages did
what they could to aid the wounded and
care for the dead, hut this seemed little in
proportion to the enormity of the calam
Slowly Itonnted to Death.
Shortly after the collision six of "the
cars of the west bound train crowded with
immigrants, burst into flames. The un
fortunates fought madly in their attempt
to crawl out of doors and windows, thus
hindering one another so that most
of them were unable to escape. The im
migrant train was made up of nine cars
behind two engines. Six of these cars
were jammed together. Very soon the
wreckage began burning fiercely and those
in the cars were slowly roasted to death.
There were no means at hand to fight the
fire and the agonized shrieks of the poor
unfortunates-was appalling.
"It was a veritable hell of fire.," said
Victor C. Greenbaum of New York city,
who escaped with slight injuries. "Peo
ple who came hurrying to the scene from
farmhouses in that locality stood about
the wreckage helplessly and held their
hands to their ears to shut out the fright
ful screams and turned their eyes away
because it was more than they could
bear." M
A special relief train arrived at Adrian
at 5 a. m., bringing five dead bodies, four
men and one woman and a stretcher full
of burned and blackened pieces of dead
humanity. One of the men was a drover
from Kansas City, who had $1,100 in
money and a gold watch on his person.
His name is not known. „,'-.
Wabash train No. C arrived at the union
station, Detroit, from the west several
hours late. It carried no dead or injured,
but brought Engineer Strong and three
uninjured passengers of No. 4. Strong
reiterated his statements previously made
that his telegraphic order read to pass
at Sand Creek, and he supposed No. 13's
order was to meet No. 4 at Seneca." All
hte cars on No. 13 but two were smashed
or burned. _; ':■
Of the eight coaches on No. 4 only one
car was destroyed. The latter was a New
York Central day coach. Fifteen to
twenty passengers of that coach are dead.
Two died after being taken out. None of
the occupants of the other coaches of the
east-bound train were killed. Fully sixty
of 13's passengers are believed to be dead.
Every occupant of both trains was badly
shaken, shocked and bruised.
Those Miannderstood Orders.
The dawning of daylight upon the hor
rid scenes of wreckage did not minimize
or detract from the earlier reports of last
night's awful calamity. Most of the
wreckage has ben cleared from the track.
It continues to appear that the number of
dead victims will reach from 80- to 100
and that more than the latter number are
suffering greater or less injuries. Some
of the railroad officials assert that the
number of dead will not exceed 50, but
the number of corpses and parts of hu
man forms being collected seems to indi
cate an increase rather than a diminu
tion of last night's reports. "'.';■.,v^;
Considerable light was thrown on the
cause for the disaster by the orders which
the conductor showed as his authority
for proceeding past Sand Creek. The or
der which was delivered to the train at
Holloway read as follows: .
Orders No. 28, to trains No. 13 and 3. No. 4
engine 609 will meet No. 13 at Seneca and No.
3 engine 623 at Sand Creek. Engines No. SS
and 151 will doublehead on No. 13. „'.:'«•,;.',*
It is understood that the engineer and
conductor of train -No. 4 received a sim
ilar order at Montpelier,. Ohio, but If so
the orders were, disregarded. If it de
velops that the orders issued to both
trains were to the same end It '.: is
considered that the responsibility for the
disaster rests wholly with the engineer
and conductor of the east-bound con
tinental limited. ....;,-. •. ■,;<•< '-v _ ..-'..
Many of the burned bodies cannot be
identified. Only six. bodies have actually
been recovered. A small pile of crisp,
blackened fragments that covered two
stretchers was all that could be found
of the others. *'*, ', . '
Bleak and Desolate.
The scene of the holocaust presented a
bleak and desolate appearance this morn
ing, i Strewn along both sides of the track
for 500 feet were car wheels, brakebeams
and such other parts of the wrecked
coaches as would not burn. Engines 88
and 609 were lying in the ditch on the
right- hand of the road, veritable scrap
heaps. Broken cars, many of them daubed
with the blood of their last occupants,
were scattered about and being used as
cushions by those huddled around the
open fires about the scene. Farmers for
miles around drove to the collision this
morning, in a majority of cases bringing
their wives and families with them. After
viewing the debris scattered along the
track they would walk through the fields
to the house where Giovanni Folonaro,
one of the emigrants who escaped from
the burning cars, was tossing on a bed
muttering in his native tongue.
When the first relief train arrived on
the scene last night from Adrian six of
the cars in train No. 13 were burning so
fiercely that the relief party could not
get within several hundred feet of them.
They were the baggage car, the emigrant
cars, two coaches and a chair car. There
was nothing to do but stand back and
wait until the fire burned itself out. It
was past midnight before a search of the
ruins of the burned cars could be begun.
As scon as the heat had subsided suffi
ciently scores of men began delving in the
mass. As it was slowly turned over small
crisp pieces of those who had perished in
the flames were occasionally found. The
largest portion of any body found was a
tterribly burned trunk. The heat had been
so intense that the cars and their human
freight had been reduced to a 'blackened
powder that was blown about for hun
dreds of feet by the breeze. In two hours
the iron works of the cars had all been
hauled into the ditch at either side of
the road.
The Relief Parties.
The first relief party on the scene ar
rived from 'Adrian fifty-five minutes after
the accident and they immediately began
work on the second coach of the train No.
4, which was telescoped by the collision
and reduced to splinters. The wreck of
the coach was jammed into a space hardly
fourteen feet square. -From the ruins of
the car the bodies of four men and one
woman were pulled out.
Train No. 3, which was waiting on the
side track at Sand Creek, having followed
No. 13 from Detroit, was run up to the
scene as soon as the accident was re
ported there and on this train practically
all the injured from the west bound train
were loaded and started for the company's
hospital at (Peru, Ind.
The continental limited, east bound,
known as No. 4, was a heavy vestibuled
train made up of an /accommodation car,
a day coach and a sleeper. The west
bound train, No. 13, was a double-header
with nine coaches, the first two of which
were filled with Italian immigrants for
Although Engineer Strong of the east
bound limited saw the light of the ap
proaching train while yet some five miles
away and down a straight track, he did
not check his speed, because, as he said,
he supposed (No. 13 was waiting on a
aiding at Sand Creek.
Engineer Strong* Story.
After reaching Detroit to-day Strong
I read my orders that I was to atop at Sand
Creek and evidently the other crew read theirs
to stop at Seneca. ' I know that there were
four of us that read my orders the same—the
fireman, the conductor, the brakeman and
myself. I lost my orders in the confusion.of
the wreck, but the records will show what
they were and what the other crew's orders
were. When,l first saw the headlight of the
other train it was far enough away, so I

presumed I- could have stopped. But you
know how It is with these electric headlight—
you cannot tel! anything about how far away
they are. It was on a straightaway track,
and I thought they were waiting for me at
Sand Creek. They doubtless thought we were
stopped at Seneca, and so both of us came on
at full speed.
We must have been running fifty miles an
hour. When we saw that they were on top
of us I saw I must jump. There was a bridge
right ahead and I did not want to fall in that,
so I waited until we were past it, and fell.
There was only a slight embankment, and the
crash came right after I let go. 1 rolled fully
three rods. When I came to, there was my
engine on one side of me, and the trucks of
the second car, which was telescoped, on the
Superintendent Burns to-day said that
Engineer Strong was responsible.
"His orders," said he, "clearly directed
him to pass,train No. 13 at Seneca. He
evidently forgot them, for he did not stop
there and the collision resulted."
Superintendent Burns estimated the
finacial loss of tbe Wabash at $48,000.
The three engines piled themselves in an
indiscriminate heap with the leading en
gine of No. 13 above the other two. The
first three coaches of the train were so
telescoped that they were nothing but a
mass of debris.
Where Fifty Died.
The flames started below the immigrant
cars and here the heaviest loss occurred,
it being estimated that about fifty per
sons, men, women and children lost their
lives. The loss in the rest of the train
was not heavy, the shock being borne by
the forward cars.
The leading day coach of the train No.
4 was telescoped and burned. In this
were about fifty passengers. Most of the
early rescue work was done here and
probably half of these passengers escaped.
Train No. 13 carried seventy-five immi
grants from Italy bound for the coal
mines at Trinidad, Col. The forward en
gine was in charge of Engineer Sam J.
Work and Fireman Dowd, both of De
troit. The second engine was in charge
of Engineer Robert Parks and Fireman
Car Baldorf, both of Ashley. Both en
gineers escaped alive, but their firemen
met death in the crash of iron and steel.
Engineer Work is in great pain from
scalding, a broken nose and scalp wounds.
He is unable to talk.
Engineer Parks of the rear engine on
No. 13 has his left leg broken and face
cut. He describes the collision as fol
We had orders to meet train No. 4 at Sen
eca and were running about thirty miles an
hour. The track is straight for several miles
and I could see the headlight of No. 4 coming
When we were about three miles west of
Sand Creek. I put on the air brakes, and the
shock came before I could jump. The three
engines were piled together. I was thrown
through the roof or window of the cab. I
don't know which. The engine on train No. 4
fell to the south and our. two piled up to
gether. I picked myself up on the bank, and
then another man crawled up to me. It was
Engineer Work. Both our firemen must have
been killed. .
Only a few of the persons who escaped
or were only slightly injured were brought
to Detroit this morning.

Hiuiiuiiiiig the Horror.
St. Louis, Nov. 28.—President Joseph Ram
sey, Jr., of the Wabash, when seen at the
headquarters of that railway here to-day,
said that he' had received few details of the
wreck near Seneca.
''ihe reports we have received, however,"
said Mr. Ramsey, "show that no more than
twenty persons, were killed and thirty in
jured. The latest report, received at 9:50
a. m., from Superintendent G. M. Burns, Who
has been at the scene of the wreck since
last night, gives those figures as the result of
his personal investigation."
Jkothiug- Is Too Good for
Xurtliern Pacific Patrons.
The Northern pacific Railway has now
completely equipped its "Duluth Short
Line" trains. The last of the old St.
Paul & Duluth equipment has now disap
peared. Each one of the three trains to
the head of the great lakes is as complete
a train as you have ever seen. Upon
entering one of these new day coaches you
feel at once as if you had acquired great
wealth. And to enter one of the mag
nificent observation-buffet, or parlor cars,
you imagine you own the railroad. And
after spending a night on one of the new
sleeping cars you will find yourself imagin
ing that you own the earth, to such an
extent does that comfortable feeling pos
sess you. • „->
