I Third Serious Wreck on 3Inch CritiL

J / More Than a Score.
K New Haven, Conn., Sept. 2.?Twen-1
B ty-nine persons were killed and nearH
ly 50 injured, some of whom may die
& in a rear-end collision shortly before
A 7 o'clock this morning on the New
York, New Haven & Hartford rail
road, six miles north of here.
The first section of the White
> Mountain express, bound for New
: m York, speeding along at probably 40
Hp miles an hour in a thick fog, rushed
by a danger signal, it is said, and
? crashed into the rear of the second
f section of the Bar Harbor express
standing 100 feet beyond the block
The Waite Mountain engine cleaved
through the two rear Pullman
rears, both of wood, splitting them in
. two and tossing their wreckage and
^ three score mangled human beings,
some alive, some dead, on either side
of the track.
W Boys Caught in Debris.
The third car, also of wood, and
' occupied by 40 boys on their way
from a summer camp at Manmouth,
Me., was lifted into the air and fell
on its side crumpled up, crushing
two of the boys to death and injuring

Pullmans were hurled from berths
over a fence paralleling the track 50
feet distant; mattresses, bedding and
clothing found lodgment in the telegraph
It was the third serious wreck the
New Haven has suffered within a
year, and inaugurated the first day
of the regime of Howard Elliott, the
newly elected head of the road. Mr.
Elliott, returning from his summer
home in New Hampshire to assume
his duties, passed over the scene of
the wreck on an earlier train less
than an hour before.
Back From Yacations.
L Practically all the passengers o:a
W both trains were returning home from
enmrrtor anrl all hilt two of
a camping party of nine, guests of
S. Crozer Fox of Elkins Park, returning
from Maine, were wiped out.
Fox was among those killed. No one
was hurt in the White Mountain train.
Admit the Fault.
The New Haven officials were frank
f to admit tonight that the socalled
"banjo" block signal system, which on
this part of the line has not yet been
replaced by th? semaphore system
recommended by the public utilities
commission last December, was in a
measure responsible for the wreck,
although the question as to whether
the engineer of the White Mountain
I train, Augustus B. Miller, was making
too much speed under the weather
conditions is under investigation.
According to Vice President Whalev
of the New Haven, it would not have
been possible at the speed the train
was making, for Engineer Miller to
have stopped within 1,500 feet after
he saw the signal. The engineer did
not see it, he said, until he was almost
on it, or scarcely more than 100
feet from the rear of the Bar Harbor
express, and at the same moment
he heard the torpedoes.
The Trothfnl Editor.
A lower Illinois editor, declaring he
was becoming tired of weilding the
whitewash brush in the matter of
obituaries, has decided to reform and
tell the truth just once. His comment
on the death of a well-known
citizen in the community follows:
"Died, ,aged 56 years, 6 months'
on^ 15? r?3vc nppppcpd a rnild
mannered pirate, with a mouth for
| whiskey and an eye for booty. He
came here in the night with another
man's w?fe and joined the church at
first chance. He owes us several dollars
for the paper, a large meat bill,
and you can hear him pray for six
blocks. He died singing "Jesus Paid
It All," and we think he is right?he
never paid anything himself. He was
buried in an asbestos casket, and his
many friends threw palmleaf fans in
the grave, as he may need them. His
tombstone will be a favorite resting
place for the hoot-owls.?Exchange.

Too Many Agricultural Associations.
Fort Worth, Texas, August .?
Never in modern history has there
been so many movements organized
in the United States to help the
farmer as at present, and there are
many "cure-alls" with free samples
for every ill that besets agriculture.
No farmer should put out a "No
Help Wanted" sign, but it is important
that he employ only the kind of
help he needs.
A great many people appear to believe
that because a farmer pulls off
his coat when he thinks,?that he is
not capable of understanding his
problems. Men can sit in libraries
entirely surrounded by books and papers
and concoct schemes to cover
the valley with grain fields and the
hills with flocks and herds, and hon- j
estly believe they can make the farmer
enough wealth to ransom a king,
- x, X
but the farmer Knows Deaer man uu
exchange magic for common sense.
Men skilled in trading may feel capable
of instructing the farmer in the j
art of cheating nature, but the farmer
knows that Mother Earth will
not be deceived. The problems of *
agriculture are as serious as the!
multiplication table and they cannot j
be solved by agricultural magicians
making miracles to order or by seeking
marketing through faith, hope and
charity. It is a cold business proposition.
The farmer can only be helped
through common sense and coporaHrm
The farmer is able to get
about on the farm, but he loses his
way in the market places and it is;
there he most needs assistance.
Too Many Organizations.
There are too many agricultural
associations. The mania for organization
is causing confusion of effort
onri a u-astine: of energy. Everybody
including the government, wants to
organize the farmers, and if the farmer
joined all the associations, read
their literature and attended their
ordinances, he would have no time to
plow. It is passing strange that our
State legislatures will appropriate
thousands of dollars, much of it to
be used in organizing agricultural
associations in localities where the
farmers are already thoroughly organized,
and ofttimes business men's
associations send out emissaries to
organize the farmer and at best they
can only hope to duplicate existing
organizations. The farmer does not
need organization as much as coonoratiim
nnri nlans should be formu
iated by which the government caneffectively
co-operate with associations
which the farmers have organized,
and business men should cooperate
in their efforts with regular
The recent appropriation of $50,000
by the Federal government for
marketing, followed by an appropriation
of $15,000 by the Texas legislature,
and with other States giving
consideration to marketing problems,
renders an imperative necessity for
organization among the farmers. The
farmer can produce without organization,
but to successfully market, he
must unite with his neighbor. Our
governments, both State and national,
are now brought face to face with
the problems of agricultural organization
in order to deal successfully
with the marketing problem.
| The National Farmer's union is
I the most powerful organization on
the western hemisphere, and it has
taken half a century of effort and
hundreds of thousands of dollars to
J build up the farmers to their present
degree of organized efficiency. This
| powerful machinery already in operation
should be utilized by the
government in their marketing plans
and all local unions should be willing
to co-operate with governmental
agncies in solving the market problems.
The farmer is always inclined to
look a gift horse in the mouth, but
the government is his, and in accepting
the good offices of government
he is taking his own money and
utilizing his own agencies. Every
voter who gets garden seed from his
congressman knows there is power
in government and can realize how
important it is to find a market for
In taking Hold or marketing, me
' government is tackling the biggest
business proposition of any age or
nation and one that will require the
combined efforts of all the powerful
agencies of civilization. The producer
must thoroughly organize the railroads,
express agencies, parcel post
and all gigantic forces in commtrce
!must be swung around the proposition
| in an orderly and harmonious manner,
and governmental assistance is j
necessary in order to develop working
The Texas YT:it.
The nation can learn many lessons
of importance in co-operation from
the people of Texas. We are the first
State in the union to appropriate
money exclusively for the study of
marketing plans. We are the only
State where the bankers are financing
the distress cotton at a low rate
of interest; our legislature has passed
a warehouse bill making cotton
? ? ? j
uerunuates liesuuaiuie itiiu a.s guuu aa
government ^onds, the first of its
kind to be placed on any statute book.
We are the first to arrange to use
the express companies as a medium
of distribution bet/ween the producer
We have organized co-operative
gin companies, owned exclusively by
farmers and operated in their interests;
we have established a Central
Selling agency for cotton wnh
facilities for handling the 1913 crop,
and otherwise afforded assistance to
the producer in the sale of his products.
These results have been brought
about, in the main, Dy tne ousiness
interests co-operating with the Farmer's
union in their work. The farmer
cannot be helped until he organizes,
and the government cannot
help the farmer except through organization.
