Wrecked in Staunton Last Thursday. Ou last Thursday morning a few minutes past eleven o'clock an alarm of fire was sounded from Box 31 loca ted near the C. & O. depot in this city, and in a short whlie there were hun dreds of people rushing in that direc tion. Upon arriving there it took but a minute to learn the trouble. The fast vestibule train on the Chesapeake & Ohio due here at 10:56 a. m , ran into anopenswiich which brought it on the side track on the north side of the freight depoD aod caused a collision with along stretch of freight cars standing there awaiting to be unload cd. For a short while there prt vailed much excitement, but it 60on subsid ed and the work of clearing away the wreckage begun. The vestibule was in charge of Captain S. C. Buster and heavily loaded with human freight, all of whom escaped without injury. The train was running at a speed of about 25 miles an hour and when the open switch was discovered it was too late to bring it to a stop. John Croft, firemen on the second engine, (the vestibule always having ; two engines attached) was the first I tnan to jump and escaped without in jury. Sandy Smith, engineer on en- i gine with Croft, jumped a moment lat- i er and was thrown against a fence, re i ceiving several cuts on his head and I being otherwise injured. Engineer E. t S. Poster and Fireman Roy (ioolsby, i in charge of the front engine and the « one that was completely demolished, j remained on their engine and escaped injury in the collision. Two railroad men riding with them also escaped. The vestibule train first collided i with a car loaded with water- r j melons completely wrecking it d and two others loaded with the same c kind of freight and also an empty coal a car and a box car of fertilizer. The i force of the collision sent a number of c other cars on the siding beyond the t end of the track across Augusta street i and beyond the wholesale house of g Bowling, Spotls & Co., knocking clown v a lamp-post with a letter box on it and also wrecking a telegraph-pole of the I Mutual Teleuhone (Jo. I Where the collision occurred the en- i; gines to the vestibule were thrown " from the main siding to another short c one used for unloading coal by the f city street car company. Fortunately c the express, mail and baggage cars and all the coaches, pullmans, etc , remain- n ed safe upon the track and no one in- s side of them were injured other than a v general shaking up. The front engine t stopped on this short siding used by s the street car people and in a tedious position just over Front street. While f> resting thusly the fireman and engi neer were upon it making an exami- h ration witli several people nearby and hundreds down on the street, when S without a moments warning the great o iron horse rolled down the steep em bankment throwing those upon it v some distance and causing a stampede ■ among the spectators similar to those J in a circus when the lion and the tiger a become unruly. 1, This was accident No. 2, and result ed seriously. Engineer Foster had his j left had injured, which made it neces- y sary to amputate it near the elbow. J. T. Garber, of the county, had his left c thigh broken; Fireman Goolsby had r one hand and his back hurt, but not seriously enough to be doctored; A. E. t Drummond, of this city, had a hip and I his back painfully bruised as well as several cuts: Fred Quensen, Jr., was c cut in the cheek. J. S. Mote and t Charles Philips, who were upon the t massive structure went down with the ; engine, but escaped safely. This was about the result of the second accident g in personal injury, though the engine c was completely ruined. Engineer Smith, who was injured in his jump, was soon found and treated . by the physicians present. C. D. Hig t ginbotham, a merchant of this city, £ and B. W. Timberlake, of Hanover \ county, were in one of the cars loaded : with melons when the collision occur red. Mr. Iligginbotham received only a slight injury and was able to go about. Mr. Titnberiake was not so fortunate, he having been so injured about his legs, back and thigh that a J removal to the King's Daughters Hos- J pital for treatment was found neces- " sary. ' Near this melon car was a horse and wagon belonging to Edward Croghan. The horse was instantly killed and the wagon smashed. Mose Banks, in charge Of the team was knocked some dis- J tauce and slightly hurt. For a long time ii was thought he had met the ' same fate of his horse. Mike Johnson, a small white boy, was also hurt. The fire department which promptly re sponded to the alarm rendered valua ble service and aided materially in ' preventing further damage from fire, ' as did also hundreds of citizens who were early upon the scene. As is customary when the vestibule arrives, there were a number of people and vehicles at the passenger station ' and the wreck created considerable excitement among them, but nothing happened outside the fainting of two or three ladies. Engines from a distance were tele graphed for and the passenger train ! pulled from the siding and sent upon its journey at 1:25 p. in. Then fol lowed a force of men with the wreck train and tools, who grasped the situa tion and went to work with a will and by night had the mix-up nearly cleared up. The entire trouble was caused by a switch being turned from the main line to the aforementioned siding. W. B. Johnson, the yard mas ter, whose duties it is to keep the switches correct, was absent on a vaca i tion and C. A. Deavers was in his i . place. Up to this writing he has made no public statement. It was stated that the yard engine . was busy shifting and had cleared for the vestibule, when the dispatcher re ported the train 25 minutes late instead I rvf less time and that Va comiug trary to expectations caused the trou in hie, as the rules of rai!ro:ding i-t to clear the track 10 minutes i-.hcad of au w approaching train. The mishap, how n ever, will cost the C. &O. upwards of . 830,000. It was a miracie that no lives . were lost, and those injured are doing ' well. This is the first serious wreck , that the C. &O. people have suffered t at this place since the wreck of the c same train several years ago when a c number of people were kiiled, among „ I them being members ot the Pearl of Q I Pekin Opera Company. c The popular view of the relation of 11 the blood to human character and con -8 duct is marked in inauy a familiar ex I ression We speak «f there being "bad blood' between people at enmi'.y, of'blue blood'as indicating ancestry, }of 'black blood'as describingatreach -3 erous nature, and in many another phrase mark our belief that in the j ' mental, moral and physical man, '.the 1 blood is the life.' The cue basis of a ' healthful, happy and useful life is pure ' blcod. With the blood pure, disease ,■ ' has no permanent lodging place in the i system. For this reason the use of Dr. i Pierces Golden Medical Discovery < rids the body of diseases which have their origin in impurity of the blood, i It absolutely purifies the blood, carry- j iLg tha waste and poisonous matter, j increasing the action of the blood c making glands, and building up the 1 body by supplying the blood in quan- c tity and quality such as is essential to a a condition of health.

Great tiains of wagons and buggies are coming and going daily. This is the farmers retreat. After the I hard summers work is over they come here for a much needed rest, and if J there is a place on earth that a man can rest it is at these springs, for there J is nothing here to disturb his peace of mind, except the cool mountain breeze and the beautiful ladies who ' gracefully promenade the lav.n. The most exciting game of tea pins that has ever been played at this place was played by four Staunton boys and i four hay seeds from the country. The Staunton boys who are good players, sent out a challenge to any four men on the grounds, and it was accepted i by Chas. Hainsberger, of Liuwocd, , Nat Stevens, of Greene county, G. E.

Tt!Q Kind You Have Always Bought VARIETY SPRINGS COMPLIMENTED. I Said by its Guests to be the Finest in tlrt ' State. [ One of the most pleasant summer s resorts in the mountains of Virginia, j if not possw-sing advantages and at ; tractions superior to any of them, is [ Variety Springs, in this county, about > IS miles west of this city. Three , trains going west and two coining east i stop there daily and two mails each ; way are iectived and dispatched. The witers consist of two Chalybeate Springs, one of theinit duplicate of the Rawley Spring water; oi:e Magnesia ard auothtr called the Healing Spring —the most popular of the groap—the princip.il ingredients of which ary sul phur, iron aud arsenic. Tne accom modations are equal, to say the least, of any other resort in the State. The rooms are pleasant, the beds cleanly and inviting, the table well supplied wilh-excelieutly prepared food, the ser vants attentive and polite, and the manager most considerate, vigilant and courteous. The terms of board are very reasonable, considering what the guests receive for their money— $6, $7. and $8 per week. Skilled musicians—vocal andinstru mental—add to the diversions of the place and the light fantastic toe is trip ped every night of the week until 10 o'clock. There is no disappition of any kind-—no uncouth or offensive con duct, but an intelligent, refined and attractive gathering of visitors, who are seeking recreation and health and who constituteafamily of congenial spirits, everybody contributing to the enter tainment and enjoyment of everybody else. There are a number of highly in tellectual and well read ladies among the guests, whose association is both fascinating and instructive. There are about 125 visitors at these springs—the largest number ever known to be there at any one time, and ali, with here and thereone inclined to crankyism and hypocritical criticism dazzled with the beautiful scenery, the agreeable social intercourse and the excellent accommodations. Augusta White Sulphur Springs are about three miles from Variety. They are owned by Mr. Pendleton and used as a summer resort for his family. The waters are e qual in quality to those of the Greenbrier White Sulphur and are generously tendered to the visitors at Variety, who may desire to drink them. Sir. Pendleton is a refined and cultured gentlemaD, whose courteous demeanor and whole souled hospitality recall the past when the old Virginia gentleman, with his knightly deport ment aud unaffected cordiality,denot ed South breeding and that touch of kindness which made the whole world akin. Under the management of H. G. Eiche'.bargsr the Variety is proving a success and the favorable verdict thi3 year will go far to increase the patronage for the next, as there are a number of visitors from Washington, Richmond, Norfolk and other parts of the State and the South, who will speak a good word for a place they have never before known. Now is the Season when the small boy fills himself with green fruit, which invariably leads to cramps, di arrhoea or dysentery.

WHATEVER IS-IS BEST.

I know that each sinful action, As sure as the night brings shade, Is somewhere, sometime punished, Though the hour be long delayed I know that the soul is aided Sometime by the heart's unrest, And to grow mean's often to suffer, — But, Whatever is—is best ! there are no errors In the great Eternal plan, And all things work together For the fiual good of man.
