How f arrl'ssii'i Caused the Crash.
As the train approached the crossing
of the Northeastern tracks, Engineer
llanlcy brought Ins train to a stop and
whistled as the law requires. He then
pave the signal to po ahead, and pro
ceeded across the tracks of the North
eastern. The East Louisiana train carrying
excursionists to points in St. Tammany
I'arUh was hooinintf alwuy its tracks
ami with a shrill shriek from its whis
tle for ' down brakes" crashed into the
sixth coach of the L. A X. train.
The collision threw a crowded coach
completely into the ditch, w hile the.
attacking- engine was derailed and
buried its nose several feet into tin:
soft mud. Passcngvrs n the Last
Louisiana train were uninjured, except
for the shock of the collision. Not so
with tlu: coast excursion, however.
Just before the iron monster struck the
coach several of the passengers saw it
coming- and a pat.ic ensued. There was
a wild rush to escape from the doomed
coach, but before one of the passengers
could reach either platform the approaching-
engine had struck, and
the coach with its living- freight was
buried in tiie ditch.
VI omen shriek in Their Terror.
Women and children shrieked in
their terror while men fought their
way blindly for some escape from the
coach. Seats were torn up ml hurled
in every direction by the force of the
collision, and after the lirst wild panic
had subsided there were heard pitvotis
moans from different quarters of the
wreck, telling-of painful injuries.
"Hilling- hands went to work, ami
within a short timu the wounded ones
had ben taken out of the coach and
made as comfortable as possible.
The greatest indignation and anger
prevailed among the witnesses of the
collision against engineer Simpson,
who had so ruthlessly disregarded the
law, requiring a stop anil had caused
the frightful wreck.

The Firm Marlncn.
The marines were first established In
1004. when a corps was formed to sup
ply trained sailors for the fleet. The
merchant navy at that time was not
large enough to supply the king's
ships, and the impressed men were in
general unruly. A certain number of
jnarines were therefore placed in each
hip to keep the crew in order. Thus
lit first marines were trained sailors,
and not soldiers, although at that time,
and both before and after, the fighting
iu men-of-war was done by soldiers.
No special regiment was set apart for
this duty, hut sometimes one and some
times another was employed. The ilike
of York (afterward James II.) was in
command of a regiment which was for
some time employed in this way.

Mr. W. J. Koddey, Rock Hill, S. C.
Dear Sir. When the settlement of my pol

I expressed some dissatisfaction at the out
come, but since I have bad more time to look
Into the matter, I am persuaded that I have
bad cheap insurance. I have always regarded
the Equitable as one of the strongest insurance
companies in this country, and am carrying at
present a policy for fij.OOO on my wife and one
for $50,000 on my own life, and bave had these
.policies in force for more than 10 years.
Yours, very truly,

FEAHCD THZ CAMERA.
Naval StwtlcnfH Who Were HiM-lplined by
the Si'-.tp-f:"ioi J'rtx-tss.
The "snapshot" camera has been
jeered at mid tin-cred at in many
places and at many times, and the
"camera fiend" has K-on excoriated for
his crimes, but the camera t-ometimes
performs the functions of a dis
ciplinarian with success. A naval
officer once found it more efficacious
than any article of war and more per
suasive than court martinis. It was
while he had under his tender care An
There was oue thing that this officer
could not teach the youngest men in
the naval academy, says the Xew
York Tribune, and this was not to
squirm and start and jump and plug
their ears with their fingers when the
heavj' cannon were fired. It was of no
use to argue with them; when the guns
began to roar they forgot the argu
ments. Pleadings w ere in vain and re
proofs were u.soless. It was highly
ridiculous aiul anything but martial
to have a lot. of young men whose pro
fession it is to make w v.r when war is
needed act like schoolgirls when the
sea artillery war, in noisy operation.
Finally the officer hit upon apian.
He had a camera "trained" upon his
gallant cadets without their knowing
it, and then he ordered broadside after
broadside t- be fired. The noise was
thunderous, and the actions of the
cadets were as usual most undignified
and most unwarlike. A few days later
some excellent photographs of the
"young - men - af raid-of-a-noise" were
hung in prominent positions to be a
perpetual reproach to those who
plugged their oars. Those photographs
did their work well. The next time
the cannon roared the cadets stood
like statues carved from stone, petri
fied with their fear of the "deadly
camera" and its brutal frankness.
