Other Railroad New* of a Varied Character. Carlle Dern, the ten-year-old son of Silas Dern, of Delphi, has, by his next friend, Dr. Wlckliffe Smith, brought suit in the Carroll circuit court against the Wabash railway for $25,000 damages for injuries received by Carlie when run over by a train two years ago. The lad, who was scarcely more than a baby, was on his way to Sunday school. In crossing the Wabash tracks be was run over by a Wabash freight train, which was switching, losing both legs. It was thought for a time that he would not live, but he recovered, and a subscription paper was circulated and a sufficient sum subscribed to enable him to purchase a pair of artificial limbs, in the use of which he has be come skillful. A recect decision o the supreme court on contributor negligence Is tne basis of the suit. RAILROAD NEWS. The Wabash, It is said, will add 2, new engines durng the coming year The Pennsylvania lines last week carried the greatest proportion o freight out of Chicago. W. T, Myers and Elmer Greely Panhandle freight brakemen, were examined today for promotion. Al Quealy, employed In the Pan handle freight department at Chlca go, was in the city over Christmas visiting his family. It is said that on New Year's day Trainmaster May will promote fifteen freight brakemen and will employ twenty-five or thirty brakemen. The cutting down of grades on the Baltimore & Ohio has Increased the train haul per ton per mile to 300, whereas It was formerly only 5100 to 225 tons.

Burt, the newly appoint ed president of the Union Pacific reorganized company, has been, the third vice-president of the Chicago & Northwestern road and is said to be well-fitted for che place. The new interchangeable mileage book, although one of the best safe guards for the railroads ever Introduced, seems doomed because the Vanderbllt lines and Michigan roads have kicked over the traces. The report of railway accidents In Germany for September last gives 218 accidents in operation, of which thirty-one were derailments and twenty-four collisions. Tde number killed was 50, Injured 135. No passengers were killed; 8 were injured; but 31 employes were killed and 104 Injured. Richmond Is soon to begin legal action against the Pennsylvania railroad company for neglecting to place electric lights at all grade crossings In the city.

It is claimed that the Yandalia lines are now befog operated on the smallest per cent of gross earnings at any time in the history of the road, notwithstanding the Improvements the receiver has been making In the track and roadbed generally. The new large freight engines the company received eighteen months ago are proving great economizers In the hauling of freight at a minimum cost. MRS. MTER9 MISS IN 6.
