WAGONER , md. 'Ter. , Oat. 23.-The
LCansas City and Missouri Pacific
express , which left here at 9:30 :
Saturday night , was wrecked
and robbed by the Cook
gang of desperadoes at Correta , a
blind siding five miles south of here.
The train was going at a speed of
about twenty-five miles per hour and
when within 100 feet of the switch a
mansprang out from behind an em-
bankinent and threw the switch for
the side track , running the train into
a string of empty box cars. Engineer
James Harris applied the air and reversed -
versed his engine , but did not have
time to jump before the engine struck
the cars on the siding. The robbers
commenccd firhig at the train and
engine as soon as it struck the siding ,
and two of the robbers ran to the
engine and commanded Engineer
Harris and. Fireman Cottrell to come
down , and as soon as they had dismounted -
mounted marched them to the baggage -
gage and express cars , where by firing
through the doors , they forced Mes-
scnger Ford to admit them. Meanwhile -
while , two more of the robbers had
taken up positions at the rear end of
the train to prevent anyone's escaping
through the rear doors of the sleeper ,
two more mounted the platform between -
tween the smoker and the baggage
ear and two more the platform between -
tween the first and second coaches ,
all keeping upacontinual firing. During -
ing this time the two in the cx-
press car were ransacking the car.
'rhe3r got all the money in the local
safe and Messenger Ford's gun , and
then commanded him to open the
through safe. He told them it was
impossible , and after hearing his cx-
planation as tolaow it was locked they
left the express car
The two robbers on the front platform -
form then started through the coach
demanding money and valuables. As
soon as they reached the tear end of
the coach the two men on that platform -
form started through. the second
coach. When they were about half
way through this car a freight train
following close behind whistled and

traiii and disappeared in the dark-
ness. There were eight or ten men

place for assistance and to give the
injured medical attendance. The entire -
tire train was completely riddled with
bullets , every window being broken
and the engine cab was shot all to
pieces , even the steam gauge and

ground around the wreck was covered
with empty shells and the fence
along the track perforated vith bul-
lets. It is a miracle that more lives
arp notlost , as fully 200 shots were
fired. The Missouri Pacific immedi-

HOW STOUT GOT STOUT.
TIlE REMARKABLE EXPERIENCE
OF A RILEU3IA'l'IC SUFFERER.
All But raralyzed-Lost Ills FIeh ann
Expected to .Die-How ho Got
Well aimd Strong.
From the Mt. iterhLug , Ill. , Republican. )
Few men are held in higher esteem
by their fellow townspeople than Jas. W.
Stout of Ripley , Ill. , and it is due no
doubt partly to this popularity that the
record of the case has created such
wide-spread interest.'hiile his experience -
rience is not without an equal. yet. it
has been sufficiently remarkable to demand -
mand the attention of thousands of
people in Illinois ; among whom are
numbered some of the most eminent
In January , 1S03. Mr. stout was
stricken with what was then believed
to be sciatic rheumatism. undin a short
time was barely able to hobble around
on crutches , and it seemed to his
friends that his days were numbered.
Today he is a strong , hearty looking
man of 16 ( ) pounds.
How this wonderful change was
brought about is most interesting as
told to a representative of the Republican -
can by Mr. Stout himself :
" 1 : was afflicted itis sciatic rheumatism -
tism and lumbago in January , 1893.
The sciatic nerve on the right side became -
came affected in the hip , running down
to the ankle and across the small of the
back to the left side , and soon ny
whole system became afflicted , causing
me the most excruciating paine In a
very short time I became totally unable
to attend to any business whatever.
and the disease rapidly growing worse
I had to take to my bed , where I lay
suffering almost continuously for
months the most agonizing torture ,
scarcely being able to move or be
moved. At one time I lay for six weeks
fiat on my back , the slightest movement -
ment causing me such pain as almost
to throw me into convulsions. I cannot -
not begin to express to you the intense
pain I suffered. I was drawn , by the
severeness of the malady , over to the
left side : lost my appetite , had no desire -
sire for food , and what little I did cat I
could not digest , the digestive organs
failing. to perform their duty , adding
greatly to my aireadyprecarious condi-
tion. For weeks at a time I was unable
to eat. or sleep , suffering all the time
most intensely and at times fearing I
would lose my reason. and would have
welcomed death to relieve me of my
I consulted with local physicians and
some of the most eminent specialists of
the larger cities throughout the
country , some treating me for one
thing and some for another , but without -
out effect , and I received no relief
whatever. One physician told me I had
double curvature of the spine and
would eventually become paralyzed. I
spent hundreds of dollars in the short
time I was afflicted without receivinr
the least benefit My friends all
thought that there was no hope for me
whatever and said that I must die , and
I , myself , had almost given up in despair -
pair , when in September. 1893 , about
eight months after I was first afflicted.
my attention was called to Dr. Wil-
hams' Pink Pills for Pale People. Without -
out much hope , I at once sent to C. F.
Rickey & Co. , Druggists , Mt. Sterling ,
Ill. , and procured some of the pills and
immediately began taking them. Before -
fore long I became aware of a great
change for the better in my almost
hopeless condition. My appetite came
back and my digestive organs performed -
ed their usual functions properly. I
took some more and grew rapidly bet-
ter-could sit up in a chair and my
body began to straighten out ; contin-
ucd the treatment and in a short time
was able to be about on crutches. My
recovery from that time on was very
rapid and assured. My right leg , which
before I commenced this treatment ,
was numb and dead , now experienced
a pricking , tingling sensation. I was
enabled to throw away my crutches tud
walk uprhrht once more among my fellows -
lows , a better man physically than ever
before. When first taken by the disease -
ease I weighed ithO pounds , was reduced
to 115 ; I now weigh 1(30 ( , more than I
ever weighed at any time in my life.

There is nomi&akeaboutit-to write
acceptably for the press requires a nut-
ural aptitude. Some fond parents edtt-
cate their sons with the special view of
making journalits of them , but it is
rare that we hear of these young men
after a few years. Meanwhile , some
youth born among the hills , having
nothing more than a common-school
education , and the knowledge scraped
up in a counti7 printhig office , will advance -
vance to the front rank in his li'ofession.
He has the journalistic knack , and
forces recognition because he has it.
He gets into a good position , not because -
cause he has wealthy parents to influence -
ence the proprietors.of leading newspapers -
papers , but because ho knows what to
write anti how to write it. His articles
go in because they supply a demand ,
while perhaps the elaborate essays of a
man educated on two continents are
cast into the waste-basket. The good
writer is born , not made.
SuicIde in France.
The most recently published figures
show that suicide is on the increase in
France. Before the Franco-German
war the average number of suicides
only sligtiy exceeded 5,000 a year , and
now they exceed 6,000. In Paris there
are three times as many suicides corn-
mitted as in the country. Most of the
men who destroy themselves are bache-
lom. The spring is the time of year
when suicide is most frequent , and death
by hanging is more usually resorted to
than any other mode ofself destruction ,
being considered in re expeditious.

BOLD TRAIN ROBBERS.
A. Tcxa3 Pacific Train Reid Up In Broad
WEATIIEIIFOBD , Texas , Oct. 22.-The
west bound passenger train on the
Texas Pacific railway , which left here
at 10:30 yesterday morning. was held
up and robbed by four men near Gordon -
don about noon. The correspondent
Icarnecifrom Mr. J , B. Young of Gor-
donwho was on the west bound train
last evening , that at a point about
two miles this side of Gordon four
men , unmasked , approached the see-
thou gang and forced them to obstruct
the road and flag the train as it approached -
preached , and when the train was
stopped the bandits forced the express
messenger to open the d.oor of the
express car. They also forced the
section men to go into the car with a
sledge hammer and try to batter the
combination off the express safe , but
their efforts to open the safe were un-
fruitful. The messenger's way safe
was battered open and what money
there was in it was taken by the rob-
bers. The amount secured , it is estimated -
timated , runs anywhere between $500
and $5,000. To-day being payday
at Thurber for the large number of
hands that work at the mines , there
was in the combination safe S30,000
consigned to the Pacific Coal compa-
fly , which was to pay off tIme hands.
After the robbery was committed
the four robbers walked away toward
the mountains , whistling , going in a
southerly direction. The Texas and

were dazzled by the prospect of securing -

cent a month on their investments.
Many men have mortgaged thctr
homes and placed the money in the
"pools. " It is common talk that the
trustees of one or two estates have
also risked the money in their charge
in these concerns.
For several days past the local
newspapers have been showing up
the impossibility of these "pools"
lasting any length of time , and alleg-
hag irresponsibility of the managers.
This morning these publications had
their effect , and there was a rush of
its investors upon a "disc re-
tionary pool" known as "The
Public Stock Exchange. " As
soon as the rush began the
managers announced that they were
the victims of a conspiracy by the
banks and fell back upon a clause
in their agreement by which they
can require several days' notice of
