THURMAN, FREIGHT FIRE , MAN OF FORT SCOTT, STRUCK BY DUMMY THIS MORNING. STWe BESIDE HIS EN6IIIE At WlHt Street Waiting For a Clear Track and the Roar of Steam of His Own Engine Deafened Him. There was another fatality at the ' First street crossing over the Missouri Pacific tracks in this city'aljout nine o'clock this morning when W. G. Thur man, of Fort Scott, fireman on engine No. 850, was struck by the Dummy and almost instantly killed. I Thurraan had been flrlng on this run only about a week and his death was duei to carolcssnoss which an old Irainman would not hav^ shown Tiiurman's train was on the sldinj?, headed east, and waiting for a clear track to leave for Fort Scott. Tho Dummy was due from Fort Scott an Tyhile waiting for it Thurman had ibeen standing beside his own engine, talking to the engineer who was on ithe ground. The engineer spoke to him a time or two suggesting that he had better get off the main track, but " Thurman : in some, unaccountable perverseness insisted on standing on the track. Just before the Dummy came in the freight' engine began! blowing off_ steam which drowned the sound of the approaching train. The dummpr came in from the east and was running about eight or ten miles an hour. The engineer, George Lahey, saw the railroader on the track but supposed of course he would step dtC as he had ample time to do. The engine of the passenger struck the , unfortunate man and knocked him over against the side of his engine. A deep gash was cut In his head and it is believed he was injured Internally. He lived five or ten minutes after the accident and then expired. Dr. Lodge, who happened to be passing and wit nessed the accident, hastened to bis side but found there was nothing to do. Coroner Reid was sent for and the ' body was removed to Culhertson's undertaking rooms to bo prepared for bpriah " [ : CJoroner Reid decided to possibly make an examination as to the iiatu|e of the wounds causing death but ibought it unnecessarjr to bold ao In­ quest as the •'-.cts to be obtained all show that death was accidental. Thurman had been staying in Fort Scott for sonje time but his home is at • ? . His wife secured a divorce from him only a short time ago and this fact seems to have preyed on his mind a good deal. It is not believed, however, that there was any intention on his part of. committing suicide. Causes Some Alarm. The recent, decision of the Kansas supreme court in reference to secret fraternal societies that have changcl the rate of assessment is causing some uneasiness among the members of several orders represented in this city. Tho case tested l)y the court refers more particularly to tho Fraternal Aid Association but the Modem Woodman of America at their recent meeting r.t Indianapolis also changed the rate of their original contract. The court held that tho Fraternal Aid Association must comply with its original contract and carry the Insurance at the original flat rale. Thi.s will of course IKJssibly have a bearing on several companies that have recently changed from the flat to a: graduated scale. Gas Burnt Brick the BesL Chanute Blade:' The mayor, city engineer and the street and alley committee returned from lola last evening where the afternoon was spent in making a test of samples of.brick for street paving. Only-tw^o makes of brick were submitted, the Chanute- Coffejrville and Diamond products* The Pittsburg people failed to send samples. The rattler test was used and the Chanute brick was found to be the most durable. The Diamond brick lost 13 per cent of their weijibt during the test and the Coffeyville or Chanute brick only 6 per cent. This Is quite an advertisement for Chanute as the rattler test is the most severe to which stone can be submitted. The brick while manufactured by the Coffeyville Brick Company, Is purely a Chanute produce being burned from Cha nute clay and with Chanlte gas. The rattldr test consists ^of weighing a sample and then placing it, with small bits of scrap iron, in' a hollow iron cylinder about' three feet in diameter, which revolves fourteen times a minute. The sample is ground around for an hour and' again 'weighed and the loss in wear and chips cotaputed. INJURED HI PRIME WESTERN • • I James PInkncy Met With Painful Ac cident Yesterday Morning at Gas City. James Pinkncy, who resides on East Madison street and is an employe of the Prime Western smeller at Gas City, was painfully injured at the plant yesterday morning. Mr. Pinkncy was w^orkiug In a cellar cleaning out the asli valves and ow ing to the extreme heat and dust was forced to run from the cellar to escape suffocation. The collar was tlark and In passing from it to the light, he had to pass through a low archway. Owing to the darkness he failed to sloop low enough and was knocked down and rendered unconscious. After regain ing consriousncss he was able to crawl out of the place and was taken care of by the men to the l)cst of their ability. They brought him to this city where he was given nie<Iicak attention. It required six stitches to close tlic wound which extended from over l>oth eyes upward to the top of his forehead, exposing the bone in several places. . Pinkncy was very much weakonoil from the loss of bhwd and he docs not know how long ho lay in the collar way. He considers that ho had a narrow escape from death, for should the accident have happened closer into th>^ cellar he would have bcca suffocated before help could have arrived. He is getting along nicely and will be able to resume his work in a few days. Injured in Runaway. Mr. and Mrs. R. S. Aspinall were quite painfully injured in a runaway which occurred this morning near their home on West Madison street. The horse became frightened at the road graders as Mr. Aspinall was getting into the buggy and gave a lunge, throwing him to the ground and dragging him for some little distance. Mrs. Aspinall was thrown fraii tbf bag|:y a short distance further and was considerably bruised about her side and shoulder. |. Mr. Aspinall was more fommatc In his injuries than his wife but sustained some very painful bruises along his right side. Dr. Mitchell was called and after a careful, examination found that no bones w'cre broken. Mr. and Mrs. Aspinall both consider that they escaped from what might have resulted la serious injuries to both of them. The Deepest Oil Well. Probably the deepest olV well in Kansas is the one in Chautauqua county, described in the following paragraph from the Sedan Times-Star: '•The O'Neil well on tho Comes l)lacc at Rogers was shot last Saturday afternoon. Although tho usual amount of nitro used in wells In this country is only forty quarts, they used over eighty quarts in this well. It was a splendid shot. The well is the deepest In Kansas licing l,92t feet deep.! Thirty feet of oil sand was struck at 1,340, but tho well was pushed on down In liopc of flndlng something bet tcr. It will probably make from two to three barrels of oil a day. AYhilo this is not enough to pay for pumping, It shows that llm oil flobl goo.s west clear .through west to Cowley county. Oil has already been fouml at Cedarvale, on tho west lino. Tho Anting of oil at Ropers, midway between the Peru field and Codarvale, shows tho ronHnuity of tho flold. Tho CNeif rigs worn movo<l from Rogers Monday to the Hurt place at Grafton, eight nillo.s northeast of Sedan. Xo well has yet boon drilled In that country, .CO the Hurt well will bo watched with much interest. It will be a pione well." OEHTH OF MRS^M. PUHMIIM Mother of W. H. Rarman Expired at the Home of Her Son This" Morning. HIge Priced Oils. There is an oil in tho market which readily splls for $640 a gallon, or $5.50 for an ounce bottle at wholesale. It is a "tcrponless" oil, made of orangcfc. Another oil, worth $C0 a gallon, and the best lubricator known, is taken from blackflsh, which abound in Jamaica bay. Only a minute quantity is taken from each flsh. and it is found ia the under Jaw and at the base of the skull. l)eing known to the trade as "licad oil." It is used almost exclusively for lubricating watches, and owes its peculiar value to the fact that it is never affected in the slightest degree by change of atmospher-?. Mrs. Malinda Parman died this morning at 11:30 o'clock at the home of her .son, W. H. Parman. 217 South Elm street. Mrs. Parman had been,in poor health for some time.and took dangerously ill on Monday morning with bowel trouble and owing to hier feeble condition was unable to stand the ravages of the disease.

Her son, who owns the Home bakery; on Sojith Washingtt»n street, had only brought her from h;t;r home to his home In this city on last Friday and the extreme heat and change <if water was the! probable cause of her Illness. She leaves tyv-o sons and two daughters. The rcmai&s will be taken tomorrow morning to Nevada, Mo., for burial. Short services will prolKibly be held at iho house. / Attention W's."
