WllkeBbHrre, Pa., Nov. 7.—Seven men were killed nnd three fatally Injured at the Sxster colliery of the I-ehlgh Valley Cool company at West PltUton, n»ar here. The accident was due to tha alleged carelessness .of; Engineer Dttvld Price, who, acting In disobedience of positive orders, caused three cars to run Into the top of the shaft. These cars. • loaded and welfchlfiB eleven tons, fell down the 860-foot shaft and crashed with frightful force upon the carriage carrying ten men. Seven were almost Instantly killed. The accident occurred at 0:30 o'clock us the men were going to work and being sent down the Kxe- ter shaft in nartlcn of ten. At the game time Engineer. Price, In charge oil the little donkey engine, was shifting loaded car* from toe new Hcd Ash •haft, several hundred yards an'ay, to the Exeter breaker. This track approaches the head of the Kxeter shaft nnd at a distance of thirty feet froirt It curved gently,.to the right and around the shaft to ths breaker. l)Uol»By«d U|N Ordnr*. At the point where this track COIP- riu'iu'ed to curve was a switch and the thirty feet of truck lending to (he nend of the shaft was used for storing crippled cars. Close to the head of the shaft It was closed liy. u: head block. Price's orders were to approach the breaker with the engine at the head of the train. A few days ago ho was caught pushing the cars and wan threatened with discharge for disobeying orders. He did the same thing thl» time. The train was going at good speed, when, Instead of curving around the shaft, the curs dashed Into the switch, which was open. Price reversed the engine but It was too IA.te. The cars •truck the head block, smashed It and three ot them toppled down the shaft. About twenty feet from the bottom they struck the carriage with awful force, completely wrecking It. The mass of wreckage fell to the foot of the shaft, choking It, and when, after hard work, the men were extricated, seven were id and three were fatally hurt. The Injured were lakn to th hospital. l*Ut of l>«nd nnd Injured.

Delicate Children They do not complain of anything in particular. They eat enough, but keep thin and 3 pale. They appear fairly well, but have no strength. You cannot say they are really sick, and so you call them delicate. What can be done for them ? Our answer is the same that the best physicians have been giving for a quarter of a century. Give them Scon's Emulsion of Cod-Liver Oil with Hypo- phosphites, It has most remarkable nourishing power. It gives color to the blood. It brings strength to the muscles. It adds power to the nerves. It means robust health and vigor. Even delicate infants rapidly gain in flesh if given a small amount three or four times each day. $IK. «I|J $1.00 I ill drUggiltl. SCOTT & BOWNE, Chtmliti, New York.
