SHOCKING ACCIDENT To John Eckert, Son of Mrs. Louisa Eckert Official facsimile of Medal Awarded DR. PRICE'S POWDER WORLD'S fAiR.CHICAGO, 1893 While Attempting to Board a Panhandle Train at Bush—Railroad Sews. John Eckert, the 16-year-old son of Mrs. Louisa Eckert, of No. 411 Bates street, had one of his hands mashed as Rush, yesterday afternoon while attempting to board a Panhandle train. The extent of the injury could not be learned. The boy was employed as a water boy on the Panhandle construction train at that point' His father, now deceased, was at one time a policeman on the local force. Mrs. Eckert left for Bush on the 3 o'clock train this morn- Ing. FIREMEN 1IUST THROW SWITCHES. For years it has been the business of the Pennsylvania baggagu men to tbrow switches for passenger tratns. Superintendent Darlington has decided that It is a risk to take the baggageman out of his car, and thus leave the baggage unprotected, and the fireman must now open the switches and the brake&san close them. RAILROAD NEWS, A change of time on the Vandalia went into effect today. See in an other column. The holiday excursion rates will go Into effect December 24th and extend to January 4th. Bert Copeland, of the Panhandle freight house, is off duty on account of a felon on his finger. The Jersey Central now retires all locomotive engineers when they reach their fiftieth birthday and give them other jobs. Brakeman Wright, of the Wabash, had his right hand slightly injured in the jards here Saturday night while making a coupling. The Inter-state commerce commission will probably grant an extension of time to all railroads in which to equip their freight cars with automatic couplers. The recent lengthening of the running time between Chicago and Indianapolis was the result uf an agreement between the Panhandle, Big Four and Monon roads, J. J. Cornell has been succeeded as agent of the Vandalia at Lucerne by Mr, Butcher of southern Indiana Cornell takes the position of telegraph operator at Plymouth. The success of the merchants' excursions to New York the past season has led other cities to ask the same privileges, Philadelphia and Baltimore: especially being of that number in the east, and Chicago and St. Louis In the west. J. J. Turner, general manager of the Vandalia line, states that the traffic of the Vandalia lines was carried in October at a saving of 16,000 on the same volume, through the uee of the heavier freight locomotives, as compared with those In use In October, 1896. A few days ago the Pennsylvania company"placed on trains 3 and 30, running between Louisville and Chicago, a combined ladies' car and smoking car, and so popular is It proving that E. A. Ford, general passenger agent of the lines, says more will be built to use on other divisions. The Panhandle company recently had to settle a demand for personal injuries because a passenger was thrown against a car seat by the sudden jerking of a train. An order has been issued to conductors to report any jerking of the train in making stops or starts. After a while passenger conductors will be required to employ stenographers at their own expense. The work of cutting down the grade at Hush on the Chicago division of the Panhandle, will be completed within the next three or four days, if the weather remains favorable. Then the track can be ballasted and put in shaps for fast running. E or many weeks all passenger trains have been delayed half an hoar or more by reason of the bad condition of'the track. Some fifteen miles of road have beers under course of improvement. While on steam roads the tracks are not injured by locomotives running at high speeds, street railway men complain that their tracks are torn to pieces by the electric cars. The reason for this is that the plunging and rearing of cars mounted on four-wheeled trucks pound the track and loosen the joints. Cars on short- base single trucks often plunge sufficiently to throw practically all the weight on to the front and rear wheels alternatively, and tbe damag- ng effect of this can easily be realized. SENT TO PR180S. Tke Weather. Partly cloudy tonight and Tuesday, preceded by showers or snow flurries; armor tonight; colder Tuesday. "Dr. Veno," who Operated In tomans- port, ConTicted at Batte. D. N. Dickinson, who visited Logansport about two years ago under the alias of "Dr. Veno," will have an opportunity of performing his remarkable cures upon the convicts in the Montana penitentiary for the next two years. When he was in our midst he claimed to be a representative of the Veno 1 Drug Co. of Pittsburg, PA. Every ill of the human body was not too severe to respond to the healing lotions of tbe "doctor." Magic cures 3acced about his fioger tios, he couched the deaf and they heard, he ordered the paralytic to wait, he broke the crutches of the lame and they were made well. Dr. Veno was the sensation of the season in Logaosporc. The afflicted crowded around him at the opera house and sought the touch of his hand. He was the doctor of all, the healer of all diseases. But Dr. Veno's success was not lasting A few days after his remarkable cures his patients became worse than ever. The deaf were deafer, the lame were worse, the rheumatic were more rheumatic than before they visited the doctor. After securing all the loose cash in the hands of the gullible he departed for greener fields. A few weeks, ago he located in Butte, Mont. There he defrauded a lady of $87 and. was arrested. He has just been convicted of the charge of grand larceny and received a sectence of two years in.prison. THE GAS PRESSURE. Investigation Shows a Considerable Decrease in Indiana. A summary of the operations in the Indiana gas-belt since the discovery of gas at Eaton in September, 1886, shows that the original area of the gas-producing territory was 5,000 square miles. Something over 5,000 wells have been drilled, and of that number 2,200 are now being drawn upon. The dally flow now amounts to 4,000,000,000 cubic feet. Tbe original pressure was 325 pounds at the well; while now the average pressure is from 170 to 200 pounds. Tbe decline since tbe waste at Alexandria has been about thirty pounds on the average all over the field and about sixty pounds in the vicinity of Alexandria. The statistics show . that when the pressure at the well drops to 140 pounds only the best machinery will keep down the salt water. Reporter's Mistakes. Yes" said a well-known attorney yesterday, "reporters make mistakes quite often in getting their matter in the paper; but then a fair view of the situation, makes me believe that thBy are not so much to blame.. They nave a vast number of different articles to handle in a week's time, and they must all be gotten up In a very brief period. In a great many intri-' cate lawsuits about which attorneys widely differ, they are called upon to gather the facts aa nearly as they can and submit them to the public. It is a harder undertaking I venture than most people have an idea and altogether I think that there Is really little complaint to be justly placed against the reporters." The Chimes Qnartet. Miami County Record: The Chimes quartet of Logansport, under the able management of Mr. Louis D. Elch- horn, rendered a musical programme at the Presbyterian church last Frl ' day night that met the most hearty approval of the large audience that had assembled to listen to it. Each number was loudly applauded and every member is deserving of especial mention. They were repeatedly encored and an expression of. sincere approval could be heard on every hand. The committee of teachers who succeeded in getting this attraction are to be complimented. fiotice. Lincoln Circle, Ladles of the G. A.
