year, about 40 or 45 bushels of the

73 years old, but doesn’t look it by ten

SUIT FOR DAMAGES.
SALISBURY MAN BRINGS SUIT
AGAINST CUMBERLAND & WEST
ERNPORT ELECTRIC RAIL
Suit was instituted on Monday
against the C. & W. E. Railway Com
pany by Chas. Wagner, of Salisbury,
Pa., to recover damages caused by a
car on said railway company’s line
striking Mr. Wagner’s automobile on
a small bridge between Midland and
Honaconing, wrecking the auto and
giving the occupants of the same a
severe shock from which, it is alleged,
Mr. Wagner’s wife, who was one of
the passengers in the auto, has not
yet fully recovered. The accident
occurred last June while Mr. Wagner
and party were in the act of crossing
the bridge while a trolley car was ap
proaching them from the other direc
To a representative of The Spirit,
Mr. Wagner stated on Monday that
before he could get across the bridge
with his auto, he saw that owing to
the narrowness of the passage and a
short curve that caused the end of the
trolley car to swing around over the
highway at that point, such a thing
as passing it would bd out of the ques
tion. He therefore brought the auto
to a full stop, intending to back out of
the way, but was not able to do so be
fore the collision occurred. He said
that in his opinion the moterman on
the trolley car could have easily
avoided the collision, but apparently
made no effort to do so. Therefore
he decided to sue for damages, and
the outcome is awaited with interest
on the part of his friends.
The plaintiff, in company with one
of his sons, and his father, ex-Post
master Silias A. Wagner, of Salis
bury, mortored to Frostburg on Mon
day, stopping here a short while, then
proceeded to Cumberland to consult
with Attorney C. S. Watson and give
bond for the costs in the case.
