Box cars were piled right and left, the old station to the north of the track was shoved , from Its foundation by a box car and the new depot was struck by a flying coal car and almost demolished. The engine to train No. 87 was quickly converted into Junk when it attempt, ed to run through tbo entire local train. , . , " Serious as was the wreck, it was a fortunate one in that no one was In jured, except a brakeman on train No. 71, who did not Jump In time.

Engin eer Ed Manford of train No. 87, In ap proaching Greensfork from the east caught the signal as white, denoting a clear track. The station agent, it is said, declares a green block waa dis played, which meant the track was not clear. Train No. 87 approached at its usual speed around the curve which la on a down grade. ' The weight of the train together with the unfavorable grade, made it impossible for Manford to apply suf ficient ala. to stop the train. After sounding his warning, reversing his engine and otherwise endeavoring to halt the train, Manford and bis fire man. Thomas Roche, Jumped. The crew of the local and others in the box car unloading freight made a hasty exit and all but the one brakeman se cured placea of safety when tho col- clsloa came.

The' plan Is an adaptation of a suggestion made re cently by the wife of Victor Berger, the Milwaukee Socialist leader elected to congress on November 8. that there should be economic, as well as social and political ' equality between - hus band and wife. To the apostles of the new movement the intimation that they 'are parasites and dependent on their husbands for support is rather Jarring. It la time, they think, that husbands should, take this view of it and recognise that their wives per form a service as important as they do and are entitled to as much considera tion. , When the members get down to caaea and undertake to put into practice what, they preach it will be Interesting to note how the fur flies. , s 7-" I JL . m ?
