New York, May 11 Twenty five persons were injured byai accident on the Tihrd Avenue eleate, road tonight. A south fmund train was discharging passengers at One Hun dred and Forty-third street when an other train loiind in the same d'ree tion whirb',1 around a curve. The motorman of the second train did not see the rear coach until he was al most upon It. The force of the collision broke the windows of the two colliding cars 1 assenge rs were thrown from their seats to the floor and rt by flying glass. It is bUuvtd that the accident was I due to the failure of the block g.vB tern during the rush hour. None of the victims was considered ta be in a serious condition tcn'ght. IHLl FIF1K MILES All 1J0UR WAS VELOCITY OF WIND IN CAIRO YESTERDAY AFTER NOON FOR FIVE MINUTES NO SERIOUS DAMAGE DONE. Women who wore "Merry Widow" hats and meu who wore "balloon" trousers ha 1 some difficulty inning along In the "streets of Cairo' yes terday afternoon when the wind LL'W 48 miles per hour. Te.iple who did not wear these things could, if they were inclined to be rude, find Bonn entertainment watchi ig tlv.ise who were thus decorated (or aff icted.) until a handful of dust or sand or gravel was suddeuly chucked into both their eyes, and Jjieu these amused fellows had some trorbl of their own. The wind did cut up most shame fully in spots. By actual record at the weather bureau It blew at the rate of 48 miles pfr hour for Aw minutes, nnd it varied from that to 25 miles for several hours: it came from the west, generally speaking, according to the record; but hundreds of people will swear that it came from six different diiei t'.ons ad back again at the same time no matter which way you turned it was always fritlii. If-va lwvt.l tlptit tn I'hlH-k voitr peepers full of real estate. That it diil turn about with reckless disregard for the eternal fitness of things was testified to in many places by the lit tle whlrlers that seemed to ris: from the grat nd spontaneously and spin along the streets here and there, car rying things upwards in columns to the height of 25 feet or more. The wind had almost a clean sweep over the block belonging to the Cairo & Thebes railroad, which has been filled with sand from the bottom of the Mississippi river, and there it seemed to enjoy itself fully as much as the boys and girls have b.en doing on their wax home from s?liool. It took complete possession of tha premises for the time being and none of the little folks who have be 'n re garding it as their own property ven tured to dispute its claim. It turned sumersaults, played "skin-the-cat," "leap frog," "hop-step-and-jump," and half a dozen other games never be fore heard of even by the "oldest In habitant." It kicked up great masses of sand and there were those who expected it would sccop out old "Lake Edwards" again anyway, that there would be gullcys and rifts and high banks and an Irregular topog raphy generally as a result of this "rough house" performance of "old Boreas." But this was not the case. On the contrary, when the wind sub tided the C. & T. premises were al most as smooth as a dancing floor, nnd the little folks will have more fun than ever, now that the weather has settled a bit. Luckily little damage was done in the city. Some wires were torn down and a few trees damaged. Some of the tin roofs were severely tested but none gave way, as far as could be learned.

NO EDDY SCIENTIST He Differs from the Followers of Mrs. I "(lily In (but He Does Not Scorn llie Aid of a Regular Physician In I'uet Insists Upon a Donor's Diagnosis. S'aid orthodox circles in the I'n.t d States were not a little astounded by the announcement that Bishop Mamuei Fallows of the Reformed Episcopal Church had become a rival of Mrs. Mary' Baker Glover Eddy. and set himself up as a "mental healer" of diseases. Bishop Fallows, however, differs from all other advocates of "mental healing," "faith cures" and the lilc. He does not scorn the aid of the reg ular physician. In fact, he insist that all his patients bring a physi cian'? diagnosis with them .and in all his "treatments" he proposes to have a physician of the recognized school present. Neither does he call his new cult Christian Science. He designates it ah "Christian psychology." He does claim, however, that "Christian psychology" will cure anything that Is curable by Christian Science meth ods, which are, he believes, simply cures by faith on the part of the pa tient that they will be healed. He declares that this faith cure Is prac ticed by all physicians, and he be lieves it should be practiced in !s highest form by all earnest Chris tians. , "This is not a new or a sudden fancy of mine," said the Bishop with a whimsical mile. "For twelve years I have been lecturing on physio logical psychology at the Bennct Epi leptic College. For the last three years I have been making a special study of the relations between men tality and dlsease. "I have arrived at the conclusion that mentality when based up on a -trust in religion, is a powerful aid toward the cure of all functional nervous disorders. t "I do not go so far as to Fay tnat all diseases may be cured by mental suggestion. Organic diseases like cancer and typhoid fever demand ".lie services of a skilled physician. But In every disease the mental attitude of the patient has much to do with his condition, and In alt those nf fectlona of the mind which might ne classified as functional nervous disor ders the mental attitude of the pat ent Is the greatest single Influence." Th bishop then outlined a few of the diseases which he believed fce could cure by Christian Psychology. 1 - included in his list the follow ing. Hyphochrondria. Sleeplessness. Nervous dyspepsia. Melancholia. Hysteria. Drug habits. Want of self-confidence, irritability, worry, anger, fear, and weakness of will. "The cure of the ?rip, I believe," said the Bishop, "can be aided great ly, and perhaps entirely effected by the direct Influence of what I my call strengthened mentality. One of the chief factors in the potency of grip Is the mental depression into which it forces its victims. It was last Sunday evening that Bishop Fallows In bis sermon a 1 nounced his purpose to put his be lief into practice. But so great was the confidence of the Bishop that the sick and suf fering did not wait for the first Thursday's meeting to receive treat ment. On Tuesday afternoon the BIship treated his first patient. A Jani- to named C. P. J. Esnorff could not wait until Thursday afternoon nd sought the Bishop in the vestry rooms of the church. He was suffer ing from a disease of the eye and was anxious for relief. He told the Bishop that medicine had fulled to afford him any help. Esnorff sat down and listened while the Bishop told him that he nnd two minds the conseiuos and the sub-conscious and how they con tained the force that was to drive tho sllckness out of his eyes. He then instructed Esnorff and let him go. The patient went away de claring he felt 100 per cent petter that the Bishop's talk ha 1 effcted a wonderful improvement. The Bishop hopes to enlist all the churches in the country In this movement. He explained this pur pose In the sermon in which he first made his announcement. He said Christian psychology uses every curative agency in the world of na ture as an aid to the powerful influ ences of suggestion and auto-suggestion for mental and physical health. It unites the physician with the cler gyman in the great work of healing. It alms to give the physician trained men and women to ahssist him in his ministry to the sick and suffering. "It is along these lines that the Boston Emmanuel Church movement has been carried on for more than a ear by the Rev. Dr. Worcester and the Rev. Dr. MrComb. The ablest neurologists of Boston and New Eng land are heartily cooperating with th"ni. The remits have been uiosl encouraging. Why Pity Him?

The town council of a towu out la South Dakota turn just passed an or dinance that makes flirting In publlo places a misdemeanor and punish able by a fine. The some ordinance also prohibits "young people from loitering on the steps of churches or other public buildings, or in the doorway of any store for the pur pose of tnkiws anil eating candy and peanut!1." The nilsdeiiicuncrs. or crimes, named in this law bivm to need a lot of overhauling in the way of official ilcliiuiiiiua befure any satis factory enlorcL'Lieut will be possible, taya u writer in the providence Jour nal. "Flirting" is a broad term, and uo one has ever yet succeeded In defining it exactly. To the fancy of the hoi polloi it consists principally of waving a handkerchief or making oogle eyes at members of the oppo bite sex. In higher circles, however, flirta tion la generally regarded as a very suutle procedure, a niatter to be un dertaken In some quiet corner like a conservatory, just as they do it In thi lovely novels by Mr. It. W. Cham bers. If carried on In the street or any other public place the process would be so extremely subtle that no one but a member of the elect. with a subtle understanding of such things, could see through it. The ordinary policeman might tseo a high-bred flirtation going on full tilt not more than four feet from his nose, and he would never know that th. law was being flagrantly violated. According to the highest English authority a flirt Is "a flighty female, a pert, giddy girl, a coquette," And flirtation is "the desire of attracting the notice and admiration of men." Our own highly esteemed Mr. Web ter agrees with this definition by de claring a dirt to be "a young girl who acts with giddiness, or plays at courtship." Thus wo learn on the best of au thority that flirtation Is altogether a niatter of feminine practice. Accord ing to the leadlug dictionaries men never flirt, and the natural presum ption it that they are Incapable 01 it. So It would appear that men are ex empt from the operation of this new South Dakota ordinance, and the po licemen of that town will do well to btur the fact In mind. In other re spects they seem to bo up against a perplexing problem. If a flirt is a joung girl who "plays at courtship," how is anyone to tell? It frequently stumps the young man most inter ested to determine whether the young girl in the case is merely playing at courtship or really means business, so how can a disinterested police man diagnose the gyrations of her emotional wheels and say with, any certainty that they are either frivo lous or serious?
