AVENGE LOSS
Confession of Lad Clears Up
Railroad Wrecking Mystery
of Over Two Months.
Associated Press.
Chicago. 111., .lune 9. —A train wreck
ing mystery of two months ago was
solved yesterday by the confession of
Willie Osborne, a 15-year old boy living
near Griffith. Ind. He admitted he
had attempted tn derail the train out
of revenge for the burning of a stack
of hay belonging to his father, William
Osborne.
Three hundred passengers on a Chi
eago bound vestibuled flyer were saved
from death or injury when the en
gineer of the New York Limited on
the Grand Trunk saw a tie ou the
westbound track just out of Griffith,
two months ago and notified the rail
road officials at Griffith in time to
save the westbound passenger train.
The tie was found fastened on the
track and many tramps were arrested
on suspicion of intended robbery.
Mr. Osborne, a farmer living uear
the right-of-way, had lost a stack of
hay by fire from a Grand Trunk engine
and the company had refused to pay
for it. He had heard this discussed
at home and decided to revenge his
father's loss.
The Effect of Warm Days and
Cool Nights.
A leading physician writes that he has
noticed warm days and coo! nights al
ways affect the bowels, and suggests
some preventative remedy. Dr. Biggers'
Huckleberry Cordial is the only one that
can be absolutely relied upon. It never
fails to cure.

GREAT SUCCESS
Surgeon Does Wonders In
Transplanting Organs and
Grafting Limbs.
Associated Press.
Paris, June 9. —Prof. Pozzi. the emin
ent French gynecologist, yesterday de
scribed to the Academy’ of Medicine Dr.
Cassel’s experiments at the Rockefeller
institute in transplanting organs and
grafting limbs. He told of his success
in grafting to a fox terrier, the leg
amputated from another fox terrier,
and also of the grafting of dog's paws.
He quoted Dr. Cassel as being unhesi
tatingly of the opinion that a man could
be grafted with a limb amputated from
another man. or from a corpse, or a per
son just killed by violence.
Dr. Cassel, however, was unwilling
to draw hasty conclusions regarding the
transfer q>f the organs of dumb animals
to man. He had refused the request of
two patients to replace an arm and a
kidney.
