MAN HURT. MANY ARE SHOCKED IN W„ B. & A. CRASH (Continued From Page One ) that the accident would have been a more serious one. First news of the collision spread rapidly about the city, and fora time, the general report was that the cars had telescoped and several persons were killed and scores seriously in jured. These reports, however, soon were dissipated. The collision inter rupted traffic over the line for a short time, until conditions could be overcome. The forenoon trains out of Annapolis, left on scheduled time, but there was some delay in the ar rival of incoming cars from Baltimore and Washington. The inbound car. it appears, had gone into the siding at Gambrill's. to await the passing of the outbound car from Annapolis. There was a mis take on the part of the brakeman on the eastbound train who threw the switch while he should not have done so. The motorman of the latter car. it is said, released his brakes and at tempted to hack out of the siding and avert the collision, if possible, but this was out of the question. Fortunately, the outbound car was not being operated at a high rate of speed. The impact of the ears, how ever. was sufficient to throw and jos tle many of the passengers out of their seats and that they escaped without serious hurts, is regarded as rather remarkable. It is possible to be perfectly square and still be known as a many sided man? CASTCRIA For Infants and Children In Use For Over 30 Years ttf&sz THE EVENING CAPITAL AND MARYLAND GAZETTE, ANNAPOLIS.

A”orney Milton Dashiell, counsel for Robinson, objected time and again to the statements of the witnesses con cerning the confession, and wanted to. put the negro on the witness stand to deny that he had made any statement voluntarily. Each time he was over ruled During the morning. Deputy Sheriff William D K Lee. of this county, re cited the same story unfolded by th** detectives, and the same attack was begun by Dashiell without avail.

Walter James, of the Northeastern di-trie’, who stated that the confession v.;;s made to him by Robinson on May IV about two weeks after the crime Vet j the paper was not produced and no! attempt had been made to offer it by i Mate's Attorney Nicholas H. Green, os Anne Arundel, and Assistant State's t Attorney Horton S Smith. James was turned over to Dashiell j for rross-examinatioti and the firs: i question asked was: “Where is that i statement ?” “Right here in my pocket," replied 'he officer. "May I see It?" asked the lawyer. "Sure, here it is." came the reply, and the next minute the much-dis cussed document was in the hands of the defendant's counsel. Dashiell asked the witness several questions concerning it and the Flat took the stand that the paper was iu evidence. Dashiell declared to the contrary, but the prosecuting officers were upheld by the court in contend ing that, as the paper was offered by Dashiell, he must take the responsi bility of having it go in the record sa an exhibit for the defense. The wrangling was ended, however when at a suggestion from the court the State offered the confession as an exhibit for the prosecuton, to which Dashiell again objected and once more offered to place the accused on the stand to deny the paper.

KEEP LOOKING YGUNG It’s Easy—lf You Know Dr. 4 Ed weirds’ Olive Tablets The secret of keeping young is to feel young —to do tins you must w atch your liver and bowels —there’s no need of having a sallow complexion—dark rings under your eyes—pimples—a bilious look in your face—dull eyes with no sparkle. Your doctor will tell you ninety per cent of all sickness comes from inactive bowels and liver. Dr. Edwards, a well-known physician in Ohio, perfected a vegetable com pound mixed with olive oil to acton the liver and bowels, w hich he gave to his patients for years. Dr. Edwards’ Olive Tablets, the sub stitute for calomel, are gentle in their action vet always effective. They bring about that natural buoyancy which all should enjoy by toning up the liver and clearing the svstem of impurities. Dr. Edwards’ Olive Tablets are known by their olive color. 10c and 25c.
