A bold hold-up occurred in the east

On B. & 0. Railroad Hits A
Man At Mansfield
(Mansfield News)
Although they were thrown for a
distance of thirty feet when the wagon
In which they wero driving was struck
by a fast Baltimore & Ohio passenger
train at the North Main street cross
ing about C o'clock Wednesday even
ing, William Jones and his step-son,
John Festler, of Llda street, escaped
with only slight Injuries.
Jones, who Is a junk dealer by oc
cupation, was driving to his home on
Llda street and it wns at the North
Main street crossing near tho Aultman
& Taylor Machinery Company plant
that the accident happened. There
aro no gates at this crossing, although
thero is a flagman stationed there
during tho day.
So far as can be learned, Jones did
not hear any approaching train nor
was -warned that a train was coming.
He started to drive across the tracks,
but the rear of ,tho wagon had not
cleared tho trades before tho fast Bal
timore -& Ohio passenger train No. 8,
due in Mansfield at 5:30, struck it. The
wagon was badly damaged by the col
lision nnd tho two occupants thrown
about thirty feet from tho track.
It is moro than poslsblo that Jones
noted tho approach of tho train, as he
mndo an effort to protect bis stopson
as much as possible. Ho had him in
his arms, and this probably saved tho
boy from any serious Injury.
A number of people saw the acci
dent and went to the assistance of tho
tjWo people. They wore assisted to
their homo on Llda street, Whore Dr.
Bnrrott was called to kIv medical at
tention. The boy had a cut over tho
eyo and another on tho arm, but ex
cept for being bruised about the body,
ho did not appear to have suffered
from the accldont. Ho was able to be
about playing ns usual this morning.
Mr. Jones nppears to have been hurt
moro ser.lously. No bones wore brok
en, but ho has bruises all over tho
body and Bevoral severe bruises about
the abdomen. Ho is confined to his
home today.

Painled As A Very Bad Place
By The Editor
Ot Ttie Danville Leader In
la Tills Week's Issue
(Danvillo Leader)
The temperance people aro up In
arms over tho manner in which lltpior
is being sold In Mt. Vernon and If a
halt Is not soon called It would be no
surprise to many to see a repetition of
the Newark affair.
Last Sunday the ministers of the
city used it as, a topic for their ser
mons nnd it is said that the mayor
and ono of the city officials were
roundly denounced.
In conversation with the Leader a
few days ago Deputy Sheriff Woolson
stated that a revenue officer had been
In Mt. Vernon and arrested seven boot
leggers. They wero taken beforo Mny-,
or Mitchell. Two of them uerc releas
ed on bond. The others pleaded guil
ty nnd were fined $100 and sentenced
to 30 days In tho workhouse but the
latter part of tho sentence was sus
pended. The prisoners were sent back to Jail
but inside of a week all of them had
been given their liberty on the orders
of tho mayor.
When the arresting officer return
er to Mt. Vernon ho was gieatly chag
rined at the actions of the mayor and
he said that if that was the kind of
protection-he was going to receive
that in tb,e future he would stay away
from Mt. Vernon.
It would not be surprising If com
plaint agalnsjjthe mayor would bo"fll
ed with ttho governor.

A single nowspaper column report
ed yesterday 30 cases of drowning In
places many miles apart, and under
conditions ao diverse as possible. They
were not suicides, strictly speaking,
although the moral responsibility Is
not greatly different in some of tho
cases. It is a mild statement that In
moro than ono Instance tho fatality
was not necessary. Many of the cases
wero pathetic, somo surprisingly so.
Young women died clasped In each
other's arms, playmates died trying to
rescue each other, and there were one
or two cases of real accident through
falling unexpectedly Into water under
conditions preventing rescue or es
cape. Such a toil as this Is shocking,
accustomed as we are to summer Sun
day drownings.
With the thermometer where It Is,
It is idle to advise even nonswimmers
not to go into the water. Since they
will do It, It Is doubtful advico to
learn to swim, since it Is the swim
mers who most frequently drown. Hav
ing taken tho responsibility of advis
ing everybody to learn to swim, It is
necessary to supplement It by advising
those who have learned to learn also
when not to swim and dive, and to
enforce this advice by morals drawn
from Sunday's awful examples. Ono
young man broke his neck and drown
ed because he plunged head first Into
water which he was told was shallow.

pathetic with such recklessness.
And the indignation with such dis
regard of human life Is similar even
when, as frequently happens, divers
persist in trying the depths of strange
waters with their heads Instead of tho
feet. It Is not so grand to try un
known depths with a Ienp instead of a
dive. Tho difference between a sprain
ed ankle and a broken neck measures
the degrees of vanity which ere be
hind these two methods of plunging.
Boys who try to float on a board in
deep water before they can swim are
just boys, and can be reasoned with
suitably only by their parents.
This Is only a word of advice to
those who know how to swim, and ap
pear to think that thereby they have
a license to bo foolish. There are tim
es and conditions when even swim
mers should not swim and there nev
er is a time when swimming Is safe
under unsafe conditions. So long as
water will stfangle there Is no perfect
safety In the water. So long as this
Is true no precautions are excessive,
whatever the skill of the swimmer.
Except for show and vanity all swim
ming exercises can be taken in shal
low water as well tfs In deep, and only
under conditions where help is sure
and near. Everybody should learn
both how to swim, and when and
where to swim. Yesterday's newspap
ers are almost a perfect guide on the
subject. New York Times.
