Rock Island FreUht Train Collide
and When Knsrlnrer Jnmps One
of tho Tralna Take the
Back Track.
Quick work on the part of a tnon
Stork yards switchman probably saved one
of the most disastrous wrecks In the his
tory of the Rock Island road. Rock Island
freight No. 9T, which Is made up by the
havy engines from Council Bluffs, was
pulling westbound to the Albright sta
tion at about S a. m. yesterday morning.
As the train nwared the station the crew
saw the headlight of the eastbound freight
No. M appearing at full speed. To save
a collision Weaver, the engineer, reversed
his engine and when the two engines ap
peared about to strike, both he and his
fireman Jumped oft. The two engines came
together, but the westbound train was
already moving fast on the reverse and tha
Impact wa slight. After that the train
ran wild back through the South Omaha
yards. The ITnlon Stock yards switchman
saw the train approaching and with great
forethought threw the switch and turned
the train, then moving at the rate of
about thirty mile per hour, upon a line
of dead refrigerator cars. The collision
with these cars occurred under the X street
viaduct. About six of the cars were
wrecked and the contents scattered over
tho siding. The stove in the way car of
the train Ignited the woodwoik of the
cars and the South Omaha fire department
was called out and had some difficulty In
extinguishing the blaze. If the puzzle had
not been turned the wild train would have
ran Into the Union depot In Omaha at a
terrific rate, provided it had not wrecked
the early passenger train on the way. As
It was, the loss was about $10,000 from the
wrecked cars.
Myaterloas Accident at Parkin I'laut.
A mysterious accident occurred at an
early hour Tuesday morning at the Omaha
Packing plant. Michael Mitchell, a man
employed as an ash trucker, was found by
his companions lying unconscious at the
ash dump, having sustained a fracture of
the skull and injuries to his right arm.
The man was discovered at about 3:30, He
was unconscious and when he partially re
covered could tell nothing of the cause of
his condition. The workmen surmise that
his ash truck upset and struck him,
knocking him down. Otherwise they are at
loss to account for his serious Injury. Pos
sibly he might have been attacked by some
unidentified parties, but there is nothing
to indicate such an attack. He was re
moved to the South Omaha hospital where
his skull was operated on to lift up the
splintered bone and relieve the pressure on
the brain. It Is thought he will recover
provided no unlocked for complications set
In. The man live at Twenty-first and 8
streets. South Omaha. 'He Is one of the
night gang at the Omaha company's boiler
Discussion of Annexation.
The Highland Park Improvement club
will meet at the Lincoln school tonight to
discuss many Important public questions.
Of late a strong sentiment has been dis
covered In favor of annexation and the club
members will be given a chance to present
their opinions. The president of the club
bas secured the services of several men
who favor the move and there will be some
probably who will take the opposite side
of the question. Aside from this the clnb
is much interested in the project of a via
duct on west F street. This street I now
being graded from Twenty-sixth to Twenty
ninth, or to the east approach of the via
duct as it Is now planned. The question of
an additional bond Issue for the sewers and
the manner of Its presentation to the legis
lature will be topics of discussion.
Prog-res on Malt Plant.
The Bryson-Peterson malt plant at
Twenty-ninth and B streets is taking on
extensive proportions and the new eleva
tor has the frame raised. It has been found
that the cost of the plant will be much
greater than at first contemplated. It Is
now believed that fully $160,000 will be ex
pended before it Is oomplete. The small
plant belonging to the company, has sold
about 600,000 bushels of malted grains dur
ing the past year. While It is not hoped
that this plant will be able to supply all
of the local demand, yet It will take a
large share of it.
Appraising; Damaajrca In Alley.
The board of appraisers for the paved
alley In block eighty-one. South Omaha,
met with the citizens and attempted to
come to an understanding as to the dam
ages arising from the change of grade of
the alley. Its finding will be reported to
the city council next Monday night. There

Strength Comes
Not From What You Eat. But From
What You Digest.
Most people eat most foods without
discrimination It matter little what.
Pew atop to think what that food doe
for them. This Is the first turn on the
road to dyspepsia. Reckless disregard
of the proper choice of foods, rapid eating
and Improper mastication, are the un
questioned causes of all stomach disor
ders from the slight ache to the malig
nant cancer.
There la nothing more revolting than
a dyspeptic stomach a very vat for
putrefaction, sending forth Its poison
throughout the entire system, depressing
the brain, befouling the breath, souring
the taste, deadening the musclas. Incapac
itating the liver and kidney for their
work, debilitating the heart, choking the
lung and clogging the bowel.
All of these disagreeable and dangerous
conditions are due to the Improper diges
tion of food and the consequent assimila
tion of poison. What els can be ex
pected? If the food lies In the stomach,
If the system Is constipated, fermentation
Is the natural outcome. It shows Itself
In sour watery rising, belchings, heart
burn and painful breathing.
There is only one way to relieve this
condition. If the stomach refuse to di
gest your food put something Into It that
will. Stuart' Dyspeptic Tablets are noth

STERLING SILVER Frenser, 16 & Dodg
John Burns Knocked front Rear
Platform and Has Sknll
John Bursa, 1125 North Twenty-ninth
street, South Omaha, aged 17 years, lies
In a critical condition at the Omaha
General hospital with a fractured akul'
and internal injuries, a victim of the ex
cessive overcrowding of the South Omaha
street cars. How Buras was injured has
not been definitely learned, but a woman
and a man who said they saw Mm tall
assert he was knocked from the rear plat
form of a southbound car to which he
was hanging by a northbound car on the
viaduct at Sixteenth and Mason streets.
The accident occurred early In the even
ing, during the rush hours, when the South
Omaha cars are taxed to a greater ex
tent than any other line in the city. Every
inch' of space Is occupied by a passenger,
and particularly on the rear platform do
men and women hang on, no matter
with what discomfort. Among the latter
was Buras, but he must have leaned over
too far, so that he was caught by a car
bound in the opposite direction and swept
off. He was at first taken to Beranek's
drug store. Sixteenth and William streets,
where he was attended by Dr. Bwoboda,
and the police were notified. When the pa
trol wagon arrived with Surgeon Pugs
ley, Dr. Bwoboda ordered the man taken
to the hospital Immediately, where he later
performed an operation.
Burns wss said late in the evening to
have a fair chance to recover, although
the fracture was severe and he had In
tednal hemorrhages. The man is a laborer
and ha a wife and child.
The patient had not recovered conscious
ness Thursday afternoon and his recovery
is still doubtful. Dr. Swoboda said it
would be a most remarkable case if Buras
recovers, ss the back of the skull is com
pletely crushed in, the brain being plainly
exposed to view.
Thomas galllvan Thongrht to Bo (he
Pal of Morrison, Already
la Jail.
In the opinion of Detective Mitchell, the
way to handle holdup men Is to catch them
In the act and take them to Jail. A remark
on the subject to this effect was dropped
by the officer apropos of the arrest of
Thomas Sullivan, 2515 M street, South
Omaha, by the police of that city Wednes
day night, whom Mitchell later brouaht to
the Jail here. According to the belief ot
Detectives Mitchell and Sullivan, the man
Is the one who escaped of the two whom
they say they caught In the act of holding
up Lester McCormlck at Twelfth and Dour
las streets Monday night. As tha two offi
cers were approaching the corner and were
about bait a block away, they were at
tracted by th actions of three men, ana
bellevtng a holdup to be In progress, they
ran ahead and, revolver In hand, pursued
the two, who started to run as they came
up. Mitchell captured James Morrison, but
the other got away.
McCormlck was very much Intoxicated
and his statement that he was robbed could
not be given much weight at first, while
Morrison asserted McCormlck had started
a fight with them. They were both held,
however, and a search begun for the miss
ing man. Meanwhile, i when McCorm'ck
sobered, he discovered he was short 118.
Th result of the search was the arrest
of Thomas Bulllvan. When brought here
he held his mouth shut tight and refused
to say anything. The South Omaha police
gave Morrison and Sullivan a most unsav
ory reputation.

the gunsmith's, where It had been oiled
and repaired. After supper the two broth
ers sat in the kitchen of their home, hand
ling the firearm. They loaded the gun, and
Galen had It In his hand when it suddenly
went off, and the boy fell over. Wild with

extent of the Injury, Ualen picked his
younger brother up In his arms and as
fast as he could run started for the office
of Dr. W. L. Ross, 2121 Lake street.
When he arrived the doctor was out, snd
he laid the boy on the couch. When Dr.
Ross entered five minutes later life was ex
