TRAIN ROLLS OVER; THREE MEN ESCAPE WITH FEW BRUISES. Texas & Pacific engine No. 62, while running 20 miles an hour and with three men in the cab, turned complete ly over between Addis and Grosse Tete. at 2:55 o'clock Saturday after noon, and the men escaped injury oth er than bruises. The men, in what is declared by railroad men to be the most remark able accident known here, are: E. G. Moore, engineer. 717 Nunez street, Algiers. Emmet Strehle. fireman, Addis. Conductor Clover, of Addis. When the engine stopped rolling, Engineer Moore shut off the steam, which was still driving the big wheels as it lay on its side, throwing dirt in every direction. "We were backing up and the tank left the rails a little west of mile post 96, about seven miles from Addis to ward Grosse Tete." said Engineer Moore. "The tank rolled over on its side to the right of the track and the engine rolled over to the left side, three of us in the cab. "I was thrown from my seat into the fireman's side and fell on top of Fireman Strehle and Conductor Clo ver. None of us was hurt except be ing bruised. I have been an engineer 23 years and have been in several wrecks, but I ne'er saw or heard of anything so unusual or so fortunate as this one. "After it was all over I found my razor, shaving mug, strop, dinner pail and other articles, which I kept in my engineer's seat box., lying together nearby unharmed." BOATS COLLIDE. The ferry Josie became unmanage able in the river as she was approach ing the Canal street landing Monday night and struck the steamer Gem, ly ing at the head of Blenville.

If you did not. you don't know of its results; the best of care and attention is bestowed on you :roml the moment you enter until you depart; you feel so much better after taking the first bath that there is nothing better to eradicate lazy, tired feeling, pains, headaches, c(oughs, soreness and gen eral debility. It will "mprove .ou to such an extent that you will never do without your Turkish Bath. l)o you know what a Turkish Bath means to your health? It improves those who are ill and acts as a pre ventive to sickness. Is it not a dis play of good judgment to take care of your health while you have your health? Even the physicians send us their patients. These Baths are only 30) cents. Think of it: only 25 cents more than a Plain Bath. Hundreds don't take these Baths because they don't know of their goodness. Do you know what a Turk ish Bath consists of? It consists of a hot room. vapor room, plunge, spray, needle and shower, rubbing and spong ing off: then you are placed on a com fortable cot or lounge and you may stay as long as yo:, like. You have your own dressiag room and you re ceive first-class attention. Expert Masseur and Chiropodist in attendance.

Recognizing the need of a place for Turkish and other Baths for Ladies a place where they can come any time -a Special Department has just been completed in a different part of the building from the men's department. It is in charge of a competent matron, who will show the greatest considera. tion to all who come. The place is sanitary and very neatly fitted up with flowers, palms, etc. Ladies will, no doubt, avail themselves of this oppor tunity to take a Turkish Bath. The price is so reasonable (50 cents). It is very little to anyone who values his or her health. OLD FAMOUS BATH HOUSE, 828 CONTI STREET. CHAS. W. HANTEL, Proprietor. NEEDED BY GOVERNMET,. CHURCH PROPERTY IN ALGIERS TO BE EXPROPRIATED. LAND TO BECOME PART OF SITE OF THE IMMIGRATION STATION. Congregation Not Incorporated. So All Members Have to Be Summoned Into Court. The signatures of the members of the Olive Branch Colored Baptist ('hurch, more than a hundred of them., all shapes and sizes, denoting varying degrees of penmanship from the "mark" so frequent in the list to flow ing flourishes, covering several sheets of paper, and in spots as hard to de cipher as a Sunday supplement picture puzzle-such was the unusual docu ment filed in the I'nited States District ('ourt. Over the signatures was the declara tion that the undersigned thereby ac ce·lted service of the petition at law, and which marked the beginning of an expropriation suit by the government to secure the land upon which the Olive Branch Colored Baptist Church stands for the proposed immigration station. The fact that the congregation of this church is only de facto a corpora tion, an association of individuals bound in their ownership by a common interest, as it were, made It necessary for Mr. Burns to cite every member thereof into court to answer the ex propriation suit, and makes it one of the most eccentric controversies of the kind ever filed in the local United States District Court. Not only will every individual mem ber of the congregation have to be brought into court at every stage of the proceedings, but Mr. Burns will have to see that tutors are appointed for a number of minors before the case can go any further. The intrica cies and magnitude of the legal pro ceedings caused the government agents to make desperate attemps to buy the church's t roperty at private purchase, but Mr. Burns declares that the negroe3 tried to "hold him up" when they found the land was wanted for the immigration station. He now applies to the court for a jury of 24 freeholders to appraise the property, which is described in the petition as "a certain lot of ground, with all the improvements thereon, situated in Tunisburg, Fifth District of New Or leans, on the west bank of the Missis sippi river, in the square bounded by Homer.
