APPLES OF COLD.
"A word fitly spoken is Kkl applet of
gold set in pictures of silver."--Prov. IS: 11. ,
There was a singer who w;?s mute,
Because all cars seemed deaf to liim;
The throbbing measures of the lute.
Or chanting* in cathedral? i!im
Waked in liis heart no living strain
IJntil some one came with I .smile
That seemed as sunshine after rain.
To speak a gentle word the while;
*aj ien *"9 neart with ???*) stirred.
And made a song the whole world heard.
There waa a painter?yet his brush
AU careless o'er the eanrai ?rent,
And inspiration in the bush
Of night no more to being swept.
Until some one come on a day?
A day that had been gloom and cloud -
And stopped but long SSrtMUjb to say
A word with hopefulness endowed;
And then the painter's eyes grew \\<t,
But his grand work i? treasured yet.
There was a soldier: and a word
Sent him to battle armed anew.
There was a king. One thing he heard
Into a greater kingdom gnu.
There was a slave. One came to tench.
And flowers blossomed in the road.
And the fair balm of gentle speech
Took all the stingings from the goad
And eased his feet where paths were
One kindly word WU word enough.
To-dav the toilers in the heat.
And they who work with cunning hands.
J?ejr?cc to hear some one repeat
The word the soie lu art understands.
And this is true of each kind tiling.
Breathed in an ?apolae ?encrous;
It will not die; but it shall bring
A golden echo back to us.
It is as silver pictures old
Where apples glow in ruddy gold.

Once again the discovery of ? now

time in the residue of tborianlte, after

has made this discovery, was able to
obtain ten milligrams of a crystaliino
precipitate which exhibited marked
radioactive powers, and which sfter
two months snowed no diminution.

The second car of an Elevated

Twelve persona were Killed
and many injured, some SO seri?
ously that the list of dead is
likely to he increased.
The disaster was due to the
fact that the switch had been
set for the train to switch off
slowly to Sixth avenue, instead
of which the train kept right on
without decreasing its speed.

N'ew York, (Special).?Twelve per?
sons?ten men and two women?were
killed and more than 40 injured by the
derailment of an elevated railroad train
at Fifty-third street and Ninth avenue.
A southbound Ninth-avenue train
crowded with passengers, leaving Fifty
ninth street station at 7.04 A. M., struck
an open switch at the junction with the
Sixth avenue line. One car fell into the
street, turning over in its descent and
standing on end in the street.

"I am satisfied that the whole acci?
dent was due to the criminal neglect
of the switchman." said the Coroner.
"In the first place, he made a mistake
in turning the- Ninth avenue train into
Fifty-third street, and then added to his
blunder by turning the switch hack again
in an attempt to divert the train into
Ninth avenue again. The last mistake
caused the terrible accident and losa of

General Manager Hedley of the Inter
Horouph Rapid Transit Company ex?
plained the wreck as follow-:
"The signals in the switch tower were
set for open track for the Sixth avenue
southbound. The train went down
Ninth avenue at a rapid pace and struck
the switch. Tito train took the switch
at a rapid speed, and the first car held
to the rails through ti.e weight of the
cars behind. The str; great

second car-, and the second car's front
trucks jammed the rails. There
nothing left to guide the second car. and

turning, and went over the side of the
structure, falling to the ?round directly
in front of tin- southeast corner of Fif?
ty-third street and Ninth avenue.
"It was a physical impossibility for
the switchman to have turned the switch
while the train was moving rapidly over
it. Statements to that effect are abso?
Mr. Hedlcy said the switchman as?
serted that the train showed signals in?
dicating it wanted the Sixth-avenue line
and that the motorman disregarded the
signals indicating that the switch was
set for lhat line, and ran the train as fast
as though be were going to run straight
ahead down Ninth avenue.
The train was a southbound Ninth
avenue local, and should have contin?
ued on the straight track, instead of
being switched to the curve, by which
Sixth avenue trains proceed on Fifty
third street from Ninth avenue to Sixth
avenue. A Sixth avenue train had just
passed, and the switch to the curve was
< bring to this open switch the first
ixir of the Ninth avenue train took the
switch, just barely staying on the rails,
and turned into Fifty-third street, in?
stead of going down Ninth avenue. The
first car of the train made the curve in
safety, but the second left the rails at
the curve, and the weight of the train
behind it swung it around end on end,
while still on the elevated structure.
Then it rolled over bottom up and
plunged through the flimsy guard railing
and dropped end first into the street.
As i? went into the street some of its
passengers jumped from the platforms
and windows either onto the elevated
structure or into the street. Some saved
'.heir lives in that fashion, hut others
were killed by their own fall to the
pavement. Then the trucks of the car
behind fell upon the already wrecked
car and helped to crush its imprisoned
passengers to death.
More than 50 persons who were in the
second car were hurled in a heap into
the lower end of it. where many of them
were killed. Some who were not badly
injured climbed painfully over the seats
ami along the interior of the roof, which
then formed the bottom of the car. to
the upper end. which rested against the
elevated structure, and were helped out
by Conductor Johnson.
