A terrible accident happened at the railroad crossing noar the Newark depot on the P. W. k B. U. R. last Monday afternoon. Mr. E. E. Norris, a young man of about 22 years, accom panied by two young ladies, Miss Annie Keeley, aged lb, and Miss Sullie Simons, aged 17. and two boys, Willie Hawkins, aged 14 and Daniel Keeley, aged 4, were returning from Newark to their home near Iron Hill. They approached the R. R. just us the south bound train, which passes that place about 10 minutes before six was going by at full speed. The whistle was blown, but Mr. Norris, who was driving, for some unaccounta ble reason, either that he was unaware of the nearness of the cars or that he did wot hear them at all. did not stop, but drove.on the track im mediately in front of the engine, which struck hi- horse, killing him instantly, knocking th« dug the ami ihn o pieces it* lit- - round.

Mr. Norris' thigh was badly fractured and he was otherwise injured, but it is thought he will recover. The two little boys were thrown clear of the track and thus escaped death, though both were badly hurt, young Hawkins having his collar bone broken, tie Dan Keeley being badly cut about th« head. i iu Dr. Bullock was immediately sent down fn soon as the terrible news reached Wilmington that city, and, assisted by Drs. Lowlier, Clark, Kolloek and Shaw of Newark and Drs. Mitchell and Ellis of Elkton, did all that could be done to relieve the sufferers.

The Odeum Tragedy. Sine« our last issue many extraordinary devel opments have been made in reference lo the case of the who found drowned in Draw" yer's creek. Instead of being simply of accidental drowning it has turned out to be a most cold blooded and malicious murder. The description of the drowned instance having, through the medium of the press, come to the eyes of a Mr. Janies Mackey, of Jennersville, Pa , that gentleman conceived the idea that the drowned man might possibly be his brother who had been absent from home for som* days. He at once came down to Odessa and had the body exhumed. His worst fears were ut once realized. The remains were indeed those of his lost brother.— Another inquest Stephens, and then held by deputy more thorough, if possible, examination made. Nothing new, howevei discovered as to the cause of the death of the un fortunate man, and the jury confirmed the ver dict of the former inquest. The following facts, however, were ascertained iu regard to the , w«s DROWNED MAN: On Monday, July 27th. Robert \. Mackey t the ill-owned lier? ville.

Middletown was thrown into a fever of excite ment on Thursday afternoon by the cry that the large fruit drying establishment of the Delmarvia Co., was the roof in large quantities and it that a conflagration was threatened. The citi zens hastened to the rescue in answer to the prolonged call of the steam whistle of Messrs. Hamilton k Woodall's Drill factory, and by the most strenuous efforts and the free use of the Bubcock extinguishers, the fire was controlled before much damage building was saved from the flames. When the cry of ''fire" was first raised the Babcock engines were called for, but to the dis may of the people but few of them could be im nwdiately found, and of those that were available some had not been recharged since last used and were not iu a condition to bo of service.

It is generally admitted that it was through the that the Dolmurvia building was saved, hut should a large fire break out and the extinguish ers be scattered all over town considerable delà}' would be experienced iu getting them together and much damage might thereby bo suffered, before they could be brought into service. The fire at the Delmarvia was caused by the over heating of one of the evaporators, thereby setting it on fire.
