Free medical and ambulance service will be given to any one who is injured during the festival. No accidents are expected as the nature of the exhibi tions is such that there is no danger about them.

There will be several places in the city where rest Booms will be provided and to which the public is invited. A large num ber of merchants will make such pro visions, Including toilet and the like.

Almost immediately after the wreck Coroner Hoffman, through his aides, began a thorough and sweeping inves tigation into the circumstances of the wreck, with a view of placing respon sibility for the toll to death. Police of surrounding stations who lent aid to the injured and removed the dead from the heaps of debris un der which they were buried, plunged into a widespread investigation In con nection with the coroner. Relatives and friends of the dead and injured were notified by the police of the disaster. Making an Investigation. Railroad officials, feeling the respon sibility for the accident which occurred in their precincts, worked energetic ally clearing up the matter. Track elevation work is in progress at the point where the wreck occurred, the Manhandle and Chicago terminal tracks being raised to pass over the tracks of the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy.

AUTO PARADE TO BE BIG FEATURE OF THEFESTIVAL So Far Over Forty Owners of Automobiles Have Announc ed That They Will Partici pate in Event. TO BE ATTRACTION THE FIRST EVENING City Street Cars, Brilliantly II luminated, Will Lead and Close Up the Parade Line Of March. Up to the present time forty owners of automobiles In the city have sign! fled their Intention of participating in tbe great automobile parade which will be held on the first night of the fall festival. At 7:30 o'clock the au tomobiles will congregate at the cor- 1 ner of Fourth and Main streets and traverse the following route: East on Main to Twentieth street, north on ! Twentieth to E, thence west on E to j Eighth street and back to Main. They ! will then probably go East on Main again to the Auto Inn, at . Twelfth street, where they will disperse. Fine Illuminations. . One of the city street cars with a gi gantic search light and beautifully il luminated with electric lights, will lead the procession of , automobiles, while a street car similarly arranged will bring up the rear.

Wil liam Schuerman, of the Emmons Tail oring company, and Fred H. Lemon, the florist, will b glad ta assist anyona with the decorating of their machines and are perhaps able to offer many ex cellent suggestions in that regard. The committee who have arranged for the event, consisting of Will Haughton, chairman; Albert Morel and Walter Eggemeyer, request that all entries for the parade be made as early as possi ble, as the committee wants to know just how many intend to participate. All Urged to Enter. Every owner of an automobile in the city is requested to enter the parade YOUR RICHMOND. There are some people who will tell you that the city of Richmond begins at Eighth and Main and leaves off at the corporation lines. If that were so we would be very little concerned about the city of Rich mond. It would be a desert island and would die in the course of the next six .months among the moans and groans of its knockers. But Richmond doe3 not begin at Eighth and Main and It does not end at tbe corporation line. It is not a desert island, and it will not die even amid the groans and moans of its 'knockers they are reforming or else dying off. In reality Richmond extends over a great portion of Eastern Indiana. The connection is so delicately balanced that if the crops are bad in Richmond country: if there is a bad year, if the hogs get the cholera. If there is a long drought and the corn is fired before the ears are filled out, or if the rain comes inopportunely and the wheat sprouts in the shocks if any, or all these things happen, It Is your Richmond that suffers. Moreover, If the Richmond inside the corporation Is hurt by the de pression of outside financial trouble; if the shops are shut down; If the. merchants are overloaded with stock that works a hardship on the whole territory surrounding Richmond. ' If you doubt this, it Is because owing to the solid foundation of afv fairs in your city of Richmond the depression has not cut much figure up to this time. In other words the problem is how to keep this delicate balance in good working order. For Richmond has withstood the depressions of the ontside world in such remarkable shape that the town has really a right to the name of the Panic Proof City. And this means that all this part of the country must be built on a solid basis.- Nothing s solid unless it hangs together unless there Is a bond of Interest between the parts which make the whole. And it is the purpose of the Fall Festival to bring all the parts of Richmond Into a full under standing and thorough sympathy. So it is that on the days of the Fall Festival. October 6, 7, 8 that portion of Richmond which Is within the city limits H issuing an invita tion to all her feilow citizens and friends who are interested enough to know their own town. We want to see your horses and your hogs and corn, we want above all to see yon and your families. We have not made any charge for entries, and there is sincerity in the phrase 'Every Fea ture Free. That is because it is Tour Richmond and we, here within the corporate limits, want you to know it and to know us. Just as we all want to know you. This Is the beginning of getting together. This is the real boosting spirit. That is the only aort of boosting that we believe in. It is Tour Richmond always if yon don't already know it come to the Fall Festival and bring your things on October 6, 7, 8. If you do know it we know you were here last year and will be here again. W are all slad to see you because it really is Tour Richmond. 39 F Quad A TW and hand his name in to one of the members of tbe committee early. Th event will be a big feature in connec tion with the festival and great Inter est is being shown to make the parade a grand success. In view of the un usual Interest that Is being manifest for the occasion, it Is thought that practically every automobile in the city and many from the country will be entered In the parade and thus add to the gorgeous spectacle.
