Why Colds are Dangerous
It is the serious diseases that colds
lead to that makes them dangerous.
They prepare the system for the re
ception and development of the
germs of influenza, pneumonia, tu
berculosis, dyptheria, scarlet fever,
whooping cough and measles. You
are much mere likely to contract
these diseases when you have a
cold. For that reason you should
get rid of every cold as quickly as
possible. Chamberlain's Cough Rem
edy will help you. It is widely known
as a cure for bad colds.

Crew of Michigan Central Blamed for
Loss of 37 Lives in Indiana Dis
aster, at Coroner's Inquest
Valparaiso, Ind., March 4. --William
Long, engineer, and George
Block, fireman, of the Michigan Cen
tral train, struck by a New York
Central train at Porter, Ind., Sunday
night .wUh 'a loss of 37 lives, were
ordered- held , for trial on a charge
of involuntary manslaughter by the
coroner's "Jury.
The story .of the engineer and fire
man for .theMichigan Centfal train
was told officially today for the first
time at the inquest.
These two men, who have been
discharged by the Michigan Central
as responsible for the disaster, is
sued a formal statement at the in
quest. They charged the Michigan
Central and New York Central rail
roads with responsibility for the
wreck through permitting a faulty
crossing system.
No grand jury action will be nec
essary, in view of the action taken
by the coroner's jury. The verdict
was returned 'after officials and wit
nesses had testified that all signals
had been set against the Michigan
Central train. The engineer and fire
man, if convicted, face two to 14
years in prison.
Long and Block were released on
bonds of $5,000 each. They probab
ly will be brought to trial here with
in seven weeks.
They declared that when they
termed "confusion in the signal tow
er when the two trains wsre seen
to be approaching" was the cause of
the collision. They asserted their
train was given a clear track.
The statement, as given at by At
torney R. N. Smith of La Porte,
Ind., who has been retained by them,
also said:
"The crossing at Porter virtually
is a death trap. The dereal on the
Michigan Central is only 310 feet
from the crossing. This does not act
as a preventive of collisions.
Uncle George Shrader. residing
down east f Murray, has been quite
ill for the pas tfew weeks, but is
