His body was literally cot pieces. The excursion train cs..- ned eleven well filled cars at the time of the accident and waa going as the rate of 15 miles an hour, which was perhaps the cause oi many lives being sa^ed. The excursion engine was badly damaged and. the caboose on the freight train caught fire and was totally consumed. Tom Gardner, a colored passenger, of Stanley Creek, N. C., was f juud crushed to death between the tender and the firsl coach of the excursion. The number of wounded, all colored, waa six.

TUESDAY, AUGUST~18~l90a The Cause of Matty Sudden Deaths. fhere b a dittase prevalHnp fn this country most dangerous because so decep- k ~ ~ J l i r I ! Eil~i! tive. Many sudden deaths are. caused by It -- heart disease, pneumonia, heart _ failure or apoplexy f- are often the result of kidney disease. [{ kidney trouble is al- j_ lowed to advance the _ k i d n e y - p o i s o n e d - blood will attack the t u ^.«-----««~«*m vita! organs or the kidneys themselves break down and waste away cell by cell. Bladder troubles most always result from derangement of the kidneys and a cure ia obtained quickest by a proper treatment of the kidneys. . If you are feeling badly you can make no mistake by taking Dr. Kilmer's i»wamp-Root, the great kidney, liver and bladder remedy. It corrects inability to hold urine and scald- g pain in passing it, and overcomes that unpleasant necessity of being compelled to £0 often during the day, and to get up many times during the night. The mild and the extraordinary effect of Swamp-Root is soon realized. It stands th* highest for its wonderful cures of the most distressing cases. Swamp-Root Is pleasant to take and sold by all druggists in fifty-cent and one-dollar sized bottles. You may -- -lave a sample bo 1 tie of this wonderful new discovery and a. book that tells all about it, both "' i*uioa of awajnp-Kooc. sent free by mail. Address Dr. Kilmer Co Binghamton, N. Y. When writing mention reading this generous offer In this paper. Don't make any mistake, but remember ^ e name, Swamp-Root. Dr. Kilmer's iwamp-Root. and the address, Binghamton ^ Y., on every bottle.
