Iron Mountain passenger train No. 2 was wrecked at Higginson, Ark., early Saturday morning. From the advices from the scene of the wreck no serious damage was done to the passenger train. The freight into which it crashed at Austin station was damaged to some extent, and delayed southbound traffic for some time. There is no reason given for the wreck, and it is supposed to have occurred from a mere accident. The delay was slight, and traffic to St. Louis on Monday reached high water mark. RIVAL CAR LINES. — i •*( The electric car running be tween Hoxie and Walnut Ridge is doing a splendid business, having carried 16,000 passengers within five weeks. The mule car, which everyone thought would go out of business when ' the electric came, is still doing basiness, carrying passengers from one town to the other at apenny a trip. This line averages 140 passengers daily. It also has the contract for carrying mail from these points, which pays actual running expenses. TRAMP DIED IN HOXIE. Hoxie, Ark., Aug. 28. — In making his rounds Thursday) Town Marshal Carouthers found a dying man lying in the street, and took him to where attention1 could be given him by the char itable people of the town. He could only give his name—Joe Smith, Iola, Kan. He had three links tattooed on his left arm. He died yesterday afternoon and was buried at the expense of Mr. P. Whalen, one of our most char itable citizens. THE BABY INCUBATOR. If you want to see something . which is instructive and at the'1' * x same time carries with it a touVn * of nature and pathos, g£ \ I"" °l\t. had lL ihea tyereAre twelve or thirlV Jg i£?*nity' /! just bef \bly Ae this bi ./n Minn sti ^leted.-\W arrive! i from a pound and a half to ^five pounds, struggling for maturity in artificial mothers. These, like Richard III., ' are wee little things “sent into this breathing world scarce half made up,” and the finishing touches are giv en by the incubators. They are too weak to live in cur norm*] temperature, so they are kept in a temperature varying according to their condition and strength varying from 85 to 99 degrees. The air they receive is filtered through a box containing a ja» of sulphuric acid and, medicated cotton, and warmed over hot wa ter pipes. They are fed with a medicine dropper and later with a bottle until they are strong enough to live in our own atmos phere, when they are ‘ ‘given a diploma” and graduated to the pretty little model hospital in the same building, where they stretch out on their tiny white iron beds and kick and coo just like other babies who never saw an incubator. Four doctors and twelve nurses watch over their destinies constantly, and the poorest child gets just as much attention as the child of the mil lionaire. It is a great lesson in humanity. Not a cent is charged for saving the lives of the little When one considers that this institutbn on the like at the world’s fair is the largest of its kind in the world he is impressed with the grand possibilities before the wealthy and philanthropic through the establishment of similar ones in every large city in the universe. Would it not be equally as meritorious as the en dowing of libraries and colleges? Of what use are the latter to the baby which might have been saved and was not because of the lack of a baby incubator? How many brilliant statesman, orators, poets, diplomats and artists might not these incubators give to the world?. The lines of Gray seem to aptly tell the story when they say: Full many a gem of purest ray serene. The dark, unfathomed caves of ocean bear; Full many a flower is born to blush unseen, And watte its fragrance on the desert air. HEART DISEASE AND WORRY. O,«mrrtlon, Either Physical •> Mental, Endanger, Life in Can* of Cardiac Trouble. The influence of mental emotion OB the heartbeat needs no special proof in our everyday experiences. When the organ is healthy the palpitation ia the ordinary response to an extra stimulus and ia necessarily transient in duration. In confirmed cardiac dis ease in which the valves are damaged or the heart walls dilated and weak ened, there is often great danger to life by overexertion, either physical or mental. It is the degree and con tinuousness of excitement which thua work so disastrously. The young school-teacher of Green point who fell dead at the end of hll first day's duty is a case in noint. says the New York Herald. He was evi dently overwrought with anxiety, and his crippled heart was unable to bear the constant strain. Unlike mere muscular exertion, the mental excit ability was beyond control, especially when the new environment was the persistent disturbing element. This happens sometimes in the pulpit, on the lecture platform, and even before the footlights. Numerous examples have been noted from time to time. The preventives are in the line of avoiding all overexcitement and of heeding all ominous warnings. This la ; most difficult obviously with mental emotions, as they are not always un der the control of the will. The man with a weak heart who is running for a train is compelled to stop in time for want of breath and thus remove th« 1 Exciting cause of his palpitation, but continual and profound mental per turbation is, alas, too often beyond his kea. Alas! there was no one near the poor teacher to teU hire MAKING PORT ON ONE LEG. The Disabled Steamer llalgaria Pr*. ceedtiiK Slowly Inder a Single Propeller.
