New Tork, July 7. The Herald today
rlva aa inteNstlnff account of recent
experiments mad wbth electric loco
motives made by eastern capitalists In
Uie foUaartna: , o
While the United State has been al
most arldlroned during the pat eight
years with hundreds of trolley roads
to supply the raptdly growing demand
of ckty and suburban transit, the first
ml tread" proper, with ordinary passen
ger and freight trains, has JuK been
put Into operation. This departure is
an etrach making one In -the history
of railroad development, and the trial
tests have thus far met with a degree
of success that promises the early ad
vent of the electric locomotive for all
kinds of traffic.
The first ptecs of railroad thus
equipped Is s, branch, of Uie Old Colony
road, on Nnntasket Beech. In Massa
chusetts, Wnd the credit for the enter
prise, as well aa the record of bavin
operated he first electric railroad of
standard gauge and capacity, belomrs

The line thus fitted out is. of course.
In one-sense, an experiment, and only
about seven miles ln length, over four
of which are made up of numerous
sharp curve There Is only one grade,
however, f About thirty-four feet to
the mile, the t of the road being
practically level. It Is an excursion
route principally, with frequent stops,

to Petnbertoa, ht the end of Nantasket
Built for HIhSe
The line faas mil the distinctive fea
tures of an ordinary trolley line, with
Its overhead wire and poles, except that
the casual observer can see that every
thing Is very substantially built and
every provision made for safety at high
speed. The track itself was first re
built, with seventy-eight pound T rails
and thoroughly ballasted, the former
Steam driven trains having run on a
fifty-eight pound rail at only ordinary
excursion train speeds. The overhead
work Is especially substantial In ap
pearance, and every precaution has
been taken to make a crucial test of the
question whether or not an overhead
trolley system Is adapted to general
railway traffic, and the answer thus far
seems to be decidedly in the affirmative.
A specially designed trolley wire has
been- used, having a cross section re
sembling a figure eight, the lower lobe
of the eight being somewhat larger and
broader than the upper. Th!s wire is
three-quarters of an Inch deep and one
half an Inch thick at the bottom, and
weighs about a pound to the running
foot, which would make the wire cost
about $2,000 per -mile for a double-track
trifling amount as compared
the cost of roadway structure and
The peculiar cross section of the trol
ley wire is not given for the purpose
of stiffening It or preventing slack, this
being effected by proper stretching, but
to provide a suitable means of fastening
the overhanging supports to the wire
securely, and in such a way that the
large trolley wheel cannot possibly in
terfere with or be thrown off the wire
by striking the grips while passing
them at high speed.
Poles Close Together.
" The trolley poles are placed between
the two tracks, with cross arms project
ing In opposite directions to support the
wire over the center line of each track.
The poles, of southern pine, are twenty
four feet above ground, a foot square at
the top andl considerably larger at the
bottom. They are placed much nenret.
together than on ordinary trolley roads,
being only sixty feet apart on curves.
Of which the road has twenty in all.
and ninety feet apart where the track
In this system the locomotives are

ar fitted with electric motors of un

trlo locomotive, If the term may be per
mitted. Is a comparatively light vehicle
alonslde of a steam locomotive, having
no boiler, with its Immense load of
water and Iron, to give it the necessary
weight to secure great traction power.
Accordingly, In this system, the bag
gags cars were built with exceptionally
heavy frames and trucks to provide. In
measure, for this lack of weight, and

the load of baggage Itself contributes
somewhat to the actual drawing power
of the engine. Two such cars are used
as locomotives, and are provided with
two electric motors on each truck of 100
horse power each. These cars, thus
equipped, can exert S.000 pounds pull
each on their draw bars, which Is suffi
cient to pull an ordinary excursion
train at fifty miles an hour. It la re
ported that on the official tests sixty
miles an hour was exceeded.

Niagara Tails. N. V., July 6. One of
the most rumantle as well as the sad
dest tragedies at the great cataract
was the suicide of a handsome Spanish
woman who leaped over the Horseshoe
Falls In the autumn cf 1S4J. It was in
the old stage-coach days, when the lum
bering four-in-hand played such a
prominent part In a trip to Niagara.
One evening in the early part of Octo
ber the stase coach from Buffalo drove
up to the door of the old Cataract
'hous.v unci one of the tlrst persons to
alight was a handsomely dressed wo
man, whose age could not have been
more than 25. The elegance of her ap
parel and K'-peaiance denoted a lady of
wealth and retlnemtnt. She sent a
card to the clerk on which was printed
the name "Miss Evelyn Barrios, Phlla
dephi.t," was registered and assigned
to one of the handsomest .looms in the
Miss Barrloa was about the hotel for
several days, and In confidence told the
lady that the was there to meet her
affianced, a wealthy gentleman from
the Quaker City, and that on his arrival
they were to be married. She visited
the fallsalmost dally or wandered along
the river bank, looking at the roaring,
tumbling waters far below as they
rushed along to the whirlpool. Two
weeks passed, and the betrothed of the
Htspanlan maiden, for such she proved
to be, did not come and he sent no mes
sage to the faithful, waiting woman.
Each day 'Miss Barrios impatiently
awaited the coming of the rumbling old
stage, and each time turned from her
window, her face clouded with disap
pointment. The third week she passed
almost entirely in her room, and the
servants commented on the fact that
she was almost always In tears.
One bright moonlight night Miss Bar
rios left the hotel shortly after tea, say
ing that she would "go for a stroll It
being such a charming evening." She
wandered away to the falls. Two
coachmen saw her sitting on a large
rock overlooking the cataract, and by
some etrange tuition decided to watch
the woman. For nearly an hour she
sat there, then suddenly arose, walked
to the edge of the rock. Jumped into the
river, and was carried over the falls.
Word was taken to the hotel, and the
landlord went at once to the room, so
lately occupied by his fair guest. Her
trunks were packed and locked. On a
table were two letters, one addressed
to the proprietor, the other to her lover.
In the first was a large sum of money,
with directions t deduct enough to pay
the bill and that the balance should be
used to give a Christian burial, In case
her body was ever .recovered.
"Without love, my life is without
hope," read the letter, "and my love
will not come."
The very next night the great stage
coach drove up to the hotel and a dis
tinguished and dignified-looking gentle
man alighted and registered as Dr. Geo.
B. De Feece. He hartlly glanced over
the register for several days prior, and
then asked the clerk if Miss Barrios was
a guest of the house. In reply the
clark handed him the letter addressed
to him by the fair suicide. The strang
er read it, and a strange pallor came
over his face ns he tenderly and cars
fu'.ly folded it and put it Into his pock
et. For more than an houd he stood
at the window, then turning asked the
clerk to send a man with him to the
spot where the tragedy took place.
After visiting It he returned to the
hotel, and the next day employed' a
dozen men to search for the body, offer
ing a large reward for Its recovery. It
was found late In the afternoon below
the rapids, and two days later the doc
tor left the falls with the body, without
giving an explanation or disclosing his
or the suicide's Wentlty.other than their
Shortly after the railway line was
opened a couple came to the falls. That
they were newly married every one
divined, and they made no secret of the
fact. Almost dally they wandered
about along the river, and to the falls
and then .again through the fields and
about the little village. Their appear
ance denoted wealth end refinement.
They were never out of each other's
company, and it seemed that Cupid had
not erred when he brought about the
union of such lovers.
They registered from Boston and gave
the name of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Wed
dell. Three weeks after their arrival
Mr. Weddell started out one afternoon
for a walk, and mentioned to the clerk
that his wife was Indlnposed, which ac
counted for his going !one.a thing he
had never done before. When the hour
for supper arrlved.Mr. Weddell had not
returned. As It neared the close of the
supper hour the hotel people sent a
waitress to the room occupied by the
couple to advise them of the fact, The
girl made every effort to carry out her
Instructions, but repeated knocks failed
to bring a response. The door was tried
and gave away to gentle pressure. The
girl peared Into the room and saw Mn.
Weddell outstretched on the bed. She
stopped to the bed to arouse her and
found that the woman was dead. An
examination disclosed the fact that Ihe
had been strangled, and the print! of
the murderer's Angers were found on
her iwbolen and blackened throat. On
the foot of the bed was a purse contain
ing money, but a careful search failed
to reveal mora of the couple's Identity
than was known,
A search was made for Wtddtll and
the next day hi body was found oa the
Canadian' side In ar pile of brushwood,
where It had lodged. He had Jumped
over the falls after having murdered the
woman he called his wife.
' A tragedy of recent date Is that of
the cruel murder of Mrs. Arthur Day
by her husband and his sister, which
took place on the Canadian side. Day
lived in Rochester, N. Y.. and had com
mitted bigamy'' by marrying a hand
some young woman with whom he was
desperately In love. For two months
he had led a double life, living with
each a portion of the time by making
each believe that hie work required his
absence from the city half of each
Day soon came to the conclusion that
it would be but a short time before he
would be discovered and decided to put
Mrs. Day No. 1 out of the way. He en
listed the sympathies and services of
Mrs. Annie Qutgley. a widowed sister,
and a plan was formed to take the wife
to Niagara Falls, where Day was to
push her over Into the river above the
falls and let the current tarry her down
to her- death. If the tragedy was ever
discovered Day and Mrs. Qulgley were
to swear that it was an accident.
It was a delightful Sunday morning In
sunny June that the trio took the train
from Rochester. Mrs. Day left her 5-year-boy
with har mother-ln-KiW to go
on the fated excursion. After reaching
the falls the party visited nearly every
place of interest, but no opportunity
presented Itself for Day to carry out his
Intended designs, on account of the peo
ple that were met at every point.
Late in the afternoon the party
reached a place on the Canadian side
opposite the whirlpool rapids, where
the tanks rise perpendicularly to a
height of over a hundred feet. Mrs.
Qulgley sat down on a log under some
trees, while Day and his wife sauntered
along the bank of the river. Day looked
carefully about nd saw that no one
perceived them.' Calling his wife to
look at the swirling waters of the whirl
pool fa.r below, he pushed her over the
bank. She fell about eighty feet into
a crevice made by Jutting rocks, and lu
a position that her body could not be
seen except by lying down nnd looking
over the bank at the point from which
the unfortunate woman had been
pushed to her death.
Day andhls sister took the evening
train to Rochester. The gateman at
the Btatlon In that city saw the three
depart In the morning, and the two
return at night. He knew Day and
asked In a Joking way If his wife "had
fallen over the falls." Day replied that
she had gone to Canada to visit friends.
This information was Imparted In a
casual way to the writer, who knew
Day, and who, at that time, was a re
porter on a morning paper. The news
paper man etarted to find Mrs. Day
and was surprised to find a Mrs. Day
No. 2. This fact aroused his suspicion,
and the police were notified. Detectives
arrested Day on the charge of bigamy,
suspecting that Mrs. Day No. 1 had
met with foul play.
The clew was taken from the visit to
the Falls, and John C. Hayden, chief of
the Rochester detectives, arrested Mrs.
Qulgley. She told an entirely different
Btory as to the whereabouts of her
sister-in-law than had been told by
Day. Finally Mrs. Qulgley was taken
to the Falls and asked to show the
officers over the same route she had
taken on Sunday. When the point was
reached where the murder had been
committed she broke down and made a
complete confession. The body of the
murdered woman was recovered and a
medical examination showed that many
bones had been broken In the awful fall
and that death had been Instantaneous.
Mrs. Qulgley was turned over to the
Candlan authorities and the officers re
turned to Rochester with the remains
of the unloved wife. Day was told
of the confession of his sister and finally
admitted his-guilt. He was not told of
the recovery of the body, but was asked
by the officers if he would go and point
out the spot that It might be recov
ered and decently buried. He con
sented and Canadian officers were no
tified of the fact. When the officers
reached British soil vlth Day he was
arretted by the Canadian officers, taken
to Woodstock, tried, convicted, and
within rlx weeks after the commission
of the crime was hanged in the Jail
yard. His sister was given a sentence
of ten years In a .Canadian prison aa

We deal honorably, frankly and fairly
with you ami it costs you nothing to con

at certain times no man living can cure.
Hut there are no diseases which cannot

ever mail It a life long rule to be honest
with his patients. If he says he can cure
your trouble he will accomplish It. When
Invalids hear these cheering words, "I oan
cure you;" that is If they know him, hop
spring Into new being within their
breasts and from that very instant a
change takes place which, as a rule, lirlnKS
them bark to physical as well as mental

hope and eonlidetico in Dr. Smith, an ab

belief in his methods which has led hosts
of patients to remark, "Well, doctor, I feel
