When passenger train No. 10 on tho South ern Fnclflo road was two or three miles east of Harwood this evening at 7:20 p. ni., tho engineer was signal ed to stop, which he did. Immediately the engineer stopped a broad shouldered man with chin whiskers and mustache boarded her and covered the engineer with a vi cious six-shooter. Another man with smooth face and apparently not over twenty-two or twenty-throe years old levelled a re volver on tho firemen and ordered him to go baok and uncouple the ex press car from the remainder of tho train. Before the ciiptor and captive had reached tho express car Conductor Bhackford, who waB In charge of the train, came up and asked what was the matter. "Wo want the car," said the beardless man, pointing his pis tol at Shackford, "and wo want it quick, Come, stir yourself, and un couple it," continued he, holding his vicious weapon in suoh range that one disoharge would kill the flreman and conduotor. The liremau then uncoupled the main car, as ordered, and tho engine pulled it dowu the road about two miles, leaving tho express car, two coaches and two sleepers behind with no one to guard them. t "Keep still and hide your valua bles," advised Conduotor Shackford walking through tho cars. "Thieves have got us." "What's got us?" was soreoched out of scoros of throats at onco. "Train robbers," laoonlcally replied the conductor. "My God !

Two or threeof the robbers wore also limping off, be seeching their ileolng companions not to desert them. In the express car which the rob bers undoubtedly meant to cut off there was United States Marshal Jno. T. Ilankin with Deputy Van Riper aud Detective Jay G. Kelly, of the Southern Pacific service.

News has reach, ed the city from the line of the Texas Western Narrow Gauge Railroad of a bloody affray th'at occurred about forty miles from here, in which two section hands and a section boss, Tom Hall, took an active part. It seems that a row was started between the two section hands, and when one struck the other with a spike hammer the section boss, Tom Hall, rushed in to stop the difficulty. He was turned upon, and had he not used a long- bladed knife, he would have been badly done up. As it was he drew the knife 'and cut his assilant across the ab domen, letting out his bowels, but not cutting them. The injured man was taken in hand and his wounds RETAIL DEPARTMENT Lni, Solomon & Cor.

The north bound passenger train on the Aransas Pass railway was wrecked last night six miles this side of Com fort, Kerr county, by running over a cow. The passenger coach was thrown down an embankment and Mrs. Crawford Long of San Antonio mashed into a pulp and Mr. Logan was seiipusly injured. The railroad officials here have endeavored to keep the matter dark as long as possible. It is impossible at this hour to obtain the names of the other people injuied. It is pretty well settled however, that Mrs Long was the only one killed, The names of 'the engineer and con ductor of the train are not known. J 11 dKe tiimtnve Cook lteslKii's. Galveston Sept.22.
