Up to a few weeks auo I considered myself
tho champion Dyspeptic of America. During
the years that I liuvo bceii afflicted I have tried
lilmo.st.everytliiiiK claimed to' be ;i specific for
. llyspepsia In the hope of (hiding Bometliilitf
tltut would afford permanent relief. I had
about made up my mind to abandon all medi
cines whAi 1 notice I aiiendoisciiient of Sim
mons Liver Regulator by a prominont
(ieortjiau, a Jurist w hom I knew, and eoueluded
to try its effect m in my case. I have used but
two bottles, and am satisfied that I have struck
the right tiling at last. I felt in beneficial ef
fects itlmost immediately. Uidiko all other
preparat ona or a similar kind, no special In
structions are roiuiied an to what one Khali or
shall not eat. This fact alone ought to com
mend It to all troubled with Dyspepsia.

Terrible Accident on the Chicago
Si. Atlantic In Indiana-
A REAR EN 9 COLLICION.
A Freight Dashes at FultSpoed Into
a Passenger Train-
MANY BURNED TO DEATH.
Flro Breaks Out and Adds to the
Almosta Second Chatswrth.
Chicago, Oct. 11. A terrible accident
occurred on the Chicago & Atlantic rail
road bust night at Koata, a small station
about fifty-five miles cast of Chicago.
Passenger train No. 12, which left here
at 7:45 p. m., stopped just this side of
Kouts at 9:43 to make some repairs. The
fast freight train No. 48, which should
follow on instructions, received a clear
bill at Boone Qrove, six miles wet of
Kouts, and had got up a good speed
when it crashed into the rear of the halt
ed passenger train. The night was
dark and the scene during the next half
hour was dreadful. The rear coaches of
the passenger train were smashed and
telescoped so that the threo occupied less
space than on-. No one in the Pulln '
sleepers was injured. The conductor
telegranhf-l t" lm company hTQ that all
escaped Uv;:-c i- ' ' car
and none were injured in the collision.
General Manager Broughton, with all the
clerks and others who could be of any
use at the scene, left as soon as he heard
of the accident this morning.
Upon the arrival of the wrecked train
at the water tank, the scene of the acci
dent, the engineer discovered a portion
of the engine ut of gear and a stop was
made to fix it. A signal is said to have
been sent back to stop the next train
should it come along while the passenger
was still at the water tank, but for some
reason this signal was ignored, if sent,
and thejineat express, which runs at a
high rate of speed, crashed into the train.
The entire passenger train, consisting of
five cars, was completely wrecked. Amid
a pandemonium of crashing timbers and
human shrieks and toppling fragments
of the wreck the horror was tripled when
the confused mass of splintered and
broken wood was discovered to be on
fire. Those who miraculously escaped
uninjured immediately turned their at
tention tothose imprisoned in the .wreck,
and all but about twenty, it ia now
thought, -were rescued.
A PASSENGER'S nARRORINO NARRATIVE.
One gentleman, a passuger from Taun
ton, Mass., wb was on his way home,
was sitting in the first car- asleep, with
his hand on his satchel. "Tlfe first I
knew," said he, "I heard a frightful crash
and the car seemed shattered and the
pieces were flying past me. The next I
knew I found myself almost buried in
the ruins and they seemed to keep piling
up. I tried to extricate myself and found
I was near a window. It was very dark
and all arouud me wore yells and groans
and the blackness" made it fearful. I
didn't seem to - be hurt beyond being
shaken up, so I called for help out of the
window. Some man I don't know who
helped mo out, and I then turned in
and helped to get others out. A little
while after I got out, though, the whole
thing took fire, and we were forced to
g:ve up working on it, bit by bit, and
let it burn with the horrible cries of those
inside in our ears. At one place there
were two or three women, apparently all
together, and we tried to get them out
They were 6uriekiug all the time in a
manner to freeze one's blood, for the fire
was comiug nearer to them all the time.
We worked as long as we could, bt could
not get them out, and the fire came all
irouud them and finally silenced their
creams. To hear their desperate cries,
as the fire came nearer and nearer, and
finally reached them, was simply ap
palling." FIRE ADDS TO T1IE HORROR.
The wreck burned to the trucks, no
facilities being at hand to extinguish tho
fire. A car load of the injured was taken
eastward from the wreck Jthis forenoon.
They were maimed, bruised and burned,
some quite badly.
A PATHETIC IXCIDEXT
A pathetic iucident of the wreck is re
lated by the station agent. Is ia of a
young lady from Ohio, whose riarn.c
could not be remembered. She was one
of the passengers on the ill-fated train,
and wi en the crash came, with presence
of mind and energy worth a etrong mind
ed maaculina, she seized ah axe from its
resting place on the sido of the car aid
hewed her way through to the window.
Her own safety assured, her thoughts
tnrned to tfie helpless unfortunate one
whoee cries f or assiitance Bounded behind
her. They did not call in vain, for she
rushed in the direction of the cries and
personally aided thoso poor eouls from
the wreck. To use her own language:
"I did all I could, and would have con
tinued had I not heard Dr. Terry crying
and moaning piteousiy that his feet were
burning. Then my strength gave way,
and I was compelled to desist and eek
BULL-HEADED RAILWAY OFFICIALS.
11 p. m. All efforts to obain informo
tion from Huntington as to the names of
the killed and wounded have up to this
hour been unavailing. The Chicago
Atlantic railway officials, who went there
with the coroner to-day, seem to have
complete possession of nil scourcos of in
formation on thia point and they refuse
positively to make public the names of
the victims of the disaster. The killed
and wounded were taken from the scene
of the wreck to Huntington early this
afternoon accompanied by the eoroner.
The water tank at which ths wreck
took place was tended by an employb
for whose accomodation a small shanty
was attached to the pump house. For a
long time he has not used it, but has
gone into Kouts every night, leaving the
tank entirely alone.
II-3 was asked to-night what precau
tions were taken in his absence to pre
vent such a crtabtrophe as that which had
occured. "Not a precaution", he an
swered, "except a sort of thing they call
a semaphore. It is an English contri
vance and is supposed to act as a signal,
but it don't."'
Tho wrecking force at the scene ef the
disaster numbers 300 men and their many
lights, stretched along the full length
of tho wreck, can be seen miles away
over the marsh. Enongh of the wreck
is still left to give an idea of tlw mass
of ruins strewed before the tank after the
collision. The freight train in part es
caped, but tho front cars wcro piled in
the most fantastic ways upon each other.
Not a vestige of any of the coaches,
woodwork was left. The telescoping of
the baggage car, smoker and day coach
had been complete and the speedy flames
did the rest, leaving not a splinter, the
sleeper even sharing the fate of the oth
ers. The bodies which the coroner
found were burned into cinders and
covered the ground under the trucks.
At midnight the track was still impas
sable. Tho coroner telegraphs the Asso
ciate press from Huntington at mid
night as follows: "Cannot as yet give the
names of the killed. There were eight
adults and one child dead and two
persons wounded at Kouts. Know
nothing of anv other wounded."
Yellow Fever Spreading-
Jacksonville, Fla., Oct. 10. A tele
gram from Dr. Wall, president of the
Tampa board of health, to-night says:
"The fever is still spreading. Six new
cases and one death to-day. Several
patients are in a critical condition." A
non-professional opinion that the disease
was not yellow fever is not accepted by
board of health officers anywhere. Aston
ishment is felt at the action of Superin
tendent Nash, of the mail service, in
ordering rout agents to go into Tampa.
The Duval county board of health has
issued a notice that infected mail matter
will be .stopped and the mail clerks
quarantined on the border of the county.
TRAVELING MEN VICTORIOUS.
The Minnesota & Northwestern
Will Reduce Passenger Rates.
Davenport, Ia., Oct. 10. F. W. Smith
President of the Iowa division of the
National Traveling Men's association,
returned to-day from St. Paul where he
had been conferring with President Stick
ney, of the Minnesota & Nortewestern
railroad. The latter assured him that he
should at once give formal notice of the
withdrawal of the road from the Western
Passenger associatio n and 9 soon as
legally free, would place mileage tickets
on sale at two cents per mile. This fore
shadows the general breaking up of the
old $25 rate for 1,000 mile tickets.
Water at Falls City.
Falls City, Neb., Oct. 12 Last even
ing at a depth of nitc-ty-four feet, in the
public test well in this city, the workmen,
after passing through nineteen feet of
blue clay entered a fine bed of coarse
gravel, that appears to be nbundar.tly
supplied with water, and all those inter
ested are greatly pleased.
Against Sunday Trains.
Dcbugue, Ia., Oct. 10. Commissioner
Coffin addressed a large mass meeting at
the orera house last night. A resolution
demanding the legislature to require the
railroads to adopt an automatic car '
coupler and to tease Sunday trains TO
FIGHTING THE RED FLAG
Master Workman Powdorly Makes
The Speech of His Llfo.
Defending Law and Ordor.
Minneapoliu, Oct., 10. Thero was
only one session of the knights of labor
assembly today and at the. call to order
at 2 p. m. the committees were not ready
to report An opportunity was thus pre
sented for bringing up the long lokcd
for anarchy discussions. James E.Quiun
of dibtrict No. 40, of New York, present
ed the following resolution under a sus
pension of the rules: "CouBidcring that
the development of the human mind in
the nineteenth century has reached a
point where public opinion is expressed
almost universally against capital punish
ment or tho taking of human life by judi
cial process, aa a relic of barbarism; there
fore, be it
lltsoloed,Thnt this convention expresses
sorrow that the men in Chicago were
doomed to death and use every endeavor
to secure a commutation of the nentenco
of death passed upon them."
The convention was once more thrown
into tho wildest excitement, scores of
delegates at the same time trying to ob
tain tho floor. General Master Work
man Powdorly decided the resolution ont
of order. Joseph Vans, of Pitisburg,
appealed from the decision. The appeal
was lost by a vote of 151 to 52. Before
the appeal was taken Mr. Powderly called
General Worthy Foreman Griffith, of
Chicago, tothe chair, and in a short but
vehement speveh called upon thj conven
tion to defeat the resolution. lie said
no true Knight of Lador could be an an
archist, lie appealed to delegates in im
passioned words not to pervert tho pur
poses of the order by the passage of any
such resolutions, It was the hottest
speech Powderly was ever known l",
make. Quinn, who offered the resolution,
voted aye on the appeal in order to move
a reconsideration. A number of other
warm speeches were made. This w-as the
principal episode of the day. Ths gen
eral opinion of the delegates tonight is
that no serious fight will come up before
tho convention closes its work. A sharp
discussion is likely to occur over the law
governing national trades districts. The
fight that it was supposed would be made
against Powderly and other general offi
cers, is said to have been given up.
Frost and Attachments.
O'Neill, Neb., Oct. 11. This section
received its first heavy frost last night.
Very little harm was done, as corn is very
gencratly out of the way and will be a
much better crop than was anticipated
earlier in the season.
Sohn C. Hayes, general nierchandico
and saloon, ha3 been closed by attach
ments. He will resist them.
An Overdose of Morphine-
Auburn, Neb., Oct. 10 Miss Emma
Reves, a step-daughter of Joseph Mur
dock, of South Auburn, died in bed this
morning from an overdose of morphine.
She was subject to severe attacks of neu
ralgia and took the drug to relieve pain.
No inquest has been hld, although there
is talk of one. Her mother is prostrated.
