A SERIOUS ACCIDENT.
William Mornn Caught Between Two
William Moran, a young married
mail, living on Dundnff street, who Is
held In the highest esteem throughout
tho entire community, wits fearfully
hurt yesterday while engaged at his
work near tho Lookout. Moran la on-
Kngett with other mine department enr
pentem t somo work there, and yes
terday afternoon was assisting In tho
unloading of a carload of heavy tim
ber. The Hide sticks were out of the
sockets oi tho side of the car from
which the sticks were being unloaded.
Mornn was on the opponlto side of tho
ear, where the sticks of lumber were
several rows high, but were supported
by hyavy Hide sticks similar to those
which hud liecn removed from the
other Hide of the ear. The men had
Just thrown off heavy timber, when,
without warning, the side sticks
(mapped off from the heavy strain
vhlch was ngnlnst them. A number
of tho timbers rolled off. Mornn was
thrown to the ground and two of the
heavy timbers received such momen
tum that they tolled completely over
him. HIh fellow-workmen rushed to
Ills assistance, and so badly was he
Injured that they at tlrst thought him
dead. Ms head wuh badly cut and one
nrin was mashed almost to a pulp. Ills
body mid legs wcie no much lacer
ated and bruised. The workmen made
him an comfortable us possible and an
ambulance whs secured hastily. Moran
v.is taken Immediately to Emergency
hospital, where n consultation of sur
geons whs held. They decided to am
putate tho arm which was the more
Injured, and this was done Inst night.
It wan thought at tlrst that trephining
would be necessary, but on Investi
gation It was found that the skull wns
not cracked, although the mini's head
was terribly hurt. Mr. Moron's con
dition Is very critical and there Is a
possibility of his not recovering. Mr.
.Moiuu lives on Dundaft street. Just
nbovo thi Fnllbrook street crossing,
and Is a young man of the most ex
emplary character. lie Is prominent
among fraternal society men and Is
widely known throughout the city.
The news of tho sad mishap was re
ceived with general regret, und every
where are heard hearty wishes that he
may rally from the shock and eventu
ally fully recover.
A TEMPEBANCE ARGUMENT.
Mr. McNulty Emphasizes His Re
marks with the Aid of Shotgun.
Patrick McNulty nnd Kate, his wife,
both well-known characters in this
city, who reside on the west side, got
Into nn argument yesterday over Mrs.
McNulty's habits, nnd the husband
took the view that she was much ad
dicted to quenching- her thirst with
strong waters. Finally Patrick got a
shotgun, and, with the remark that
he'd cure her of getting drunk, he dis
charged the weapon at her.
Tho load of shot struck Mrs. Mc
Xulty In the foot, making a slight
wound. Then Patrick loaded tho
weapon again, but wns prevented from
llrlng. When Constable Neary got to
the house he found the husband plac
idly preparing his own supper. He was
brought before Alderman Jones, who
held him In ball.

ANOTHER DELIVERY WANTED.
Business Men Petition tor a Noon
Mail Postmaster Handicapped.
Postmaster J. H, Thomas haH re
ceived the following petition for a
noonday delivery of mall:
"John II. Thomns, Postmaster, Car-
"Dear 'Sir: Wc, the undersigned per
sons of the business block on Salem
avenue, between Church street and
Terrace street, believing our business
of nufllclcnt magnitude and Import
ance to warrant tho request, respect

mercial traveler; Miss iM. llarndcn, for
Weston Mill company; 'Mrs. C. A. Wal
ter, boarding house; tM, II. Sullivan,
While Mr. Thomas Is anxious to do
everything In his power for tho benefit
and convenience of the postoirico pa
trons, It will be Imposslblo to grant this
request. Under penalty of suspension
mall carriers are forbidden to work
over eight hours per day and each car
rier In this city now has to cut one of
his deliveries short in order to keep
within the required time.
Tho only remedy for this condition Is
for the city to adopt Mr. Thomas' sug
gestion and number the houses nnd put
signs on the street corners. It would
bu a mutter of very little expense cither
to the city or to the Individuals, and
then, perhaps, the city could get one,
or, perhups, two, additional carriers,
thus allowing more complete delivery
on the outskirts nnd more frequent de
liveries in the central city. Mr. Thomas
says that there Is Indeed some danger
that we mny lose somo of the carriers
wo now have because of the Imperfect
numbering of houses, designation of
streets and bad sidewalks. Shamokln
recently lost nil Its carriers for these
Mr. Thomns has proved that he is
ready to help tho people get better fa
cilities, for only a few months ago ha
had -an Inspector here endeavoring to
get moro curriers, but ho says there Is
no hope for better service until the
people make up their minds to abide
by tho department's Instructions.

Annual Silverware Sale
Thoughtful folks who have been waiting for this annual event,
need wait no longer we are ready for you. It Is no small task
to gather what is thoroughly reliable and desirable in silverware,
and offer it at exceptional prices. Matters are suspicious. They'd
rather melt over the patterns of 1900 into 1901 designs, even
though their similarity is striking, than to sacrifice in price their
product and reputation. That is why the maker's name, as a rule,
is kept out of silver sales,
Money "talks' to some ol them, however, and so these silver
sales come and go, providing inducements that are possible in no
other way. Every piece has merit Is thoroughly guaranteed
else it would not be here. You save a third to a quarter on every
thingon some few things much more than that.

"One Is the overpressure upon young

make the dtllllng and preparation for
the battle of life more hurtful than
the nctual warfare Itself. The toll,

not In her Iio'irc The movement Is
luokcd on with favor by some men out
of thoughtless good nature, and push
ed on by others ftom a half sensuous
doslra of pleasing and Idolizing wo
men. Unhupplly, movements once be
gun can never bo stopped at the point
first designed; and nothing is more
difficult than to show distant dangers
to thoss who do not wish to see them.
It Is sometimes said that no harm has
lesulttd from the greater range as
sumed by some women In the society
of tho day. For my pnrt, I never ex
pected the evil consequences to show
thoin.selven at once, but they are com
ing fust enough. In Franco and In
Massachusetts the hirth-rute Iu scarce
ly higher than the death-rate. In Mas
sachusetts the mothers ot foreign birth
have twice as many children ns the
native mothers. While France Is
alarmed at her sterility, Massachu
setts contendly recruits her population
from French Canada, where old world
notions still prevail. In England the
birth-rate hns also diminished.
"Woe to the stales, which suffer such
doctrines ns these to which we have
referred to gain hold In their midst,
in the end their place will be taken
from them nnd given to peoples who
obey the voice of nature and recognise
the right order of things."
The funeral of the late Watkln J.
