was 011 the caboose, was cntishl lie
lween the caboose and the store house.
Ills ler was pinioned and to release
lilm I he trainmen had to chop the iron

It was a Iryiiiff situation. Tliuniili

1wo fears, that he mlKht bleed to death
or be roasted by the names which were
inakinp (laiiKerous headway unions' the
effects of the caboose, were nerved to
frantic desperation to remove him from
the double fate that threatened him.
The aNcs, swims' by arms that were
never more determined, made chips of
the timbers that pinioned Humphreys.
After a nerve-racklngr PlrtiRKlc, the
poor brakeman, who was silt himself,
was released. Ho was carried up to
the railroad on the embankment above,
while a hurried call was sent for a
physician and an ambulance, In the
meantime those about Humphrey tied
about his left tlilsli. the crushed mem
ber, strips of handkerchiefs and pieces
nf stout twine, to cease the How of
blood, which was so rapid as to 1111
every one with appreheiisilon,
A half hour after tlio accident the
ambulance arrived, in Ii Humphrey
was taken to Minei'sency hospital, un
der the care of Dr. Harper, where the
crushed Ick was amputated, above the
Fire Alarm Turned in.
Humphrey's rescuers divided their
fl'forts between releasiiiK' lilm und
IIrIiUiik the lire, which was blazing In
1 1ns caboose. The cabooso was divided
Into small compartments for the 11c
eoinmoilutloii '"' the trainmen's ho
lonslnus. Anions these the Hie was
bcKlniilnir t" rase. Tim facilities for
ritayliiK the ilanies were poor, and the
aid ot" the city companies was soin?lit
UmiiiKh mi ultii'in from box ai, Jiuln
stive! and Haleiii avenue. It was illlll
I'lllt to gain access to wlli'l'n the calioose
lay, ami before the hoso companies
could act, a stream was turned on
through huso drawn from the Uelawaro
and Hudson yard. This was eftVetlvo
mid the damaso to the calmuse and
effects was sIlKlit.
A Remarkable Happening.
The I'li'cumstances of the accident
pluco It In 11 clasH by Itself. To lliniro
out how the cabooso was ihrown Into
tin! position In which It lays Is pusii-llnj,-.
It ninrtii a coiuplcto turn and lauded

as If It had been lowered into Hie Mint,'
The U'uiiimi'U sfiiiiU'd unable to ex.

engineer, who is Thomas Sillier, lioni

Cadosla, He couldn't explain any
thing, ho Bald, (lelatt was anltaied

It appears that It was the Intention

Ihrown for It to ro on Hie main track,

was that the train caunht the caboose

The Victim of Sunday's File Burned

The sad experience of Sunday, when
the beautiful home of the Methodists
was destroyed by lire, demonstrated
that Carbondulo has a volunteer fire
department of which sin; has abundant
reason lo bo proud, but what was dem

was the fact that tlio department is
sorely handicapped in battling with
Ihvs by the lack of appliances.
There is a sore lack of the up-to-date
means to coiuiuer lire, and if Carbon
dale firemen would cope with disasters
like that of Sunday, and if the com
munity would have the protection that
Sunday's deplorable happening shows,
It stands in need of the necessary ap

Years ago, when there were but few
buildings above two stories, the neces

that have been proven the most ef

department that responds more read
ily or uuickly than Carbundule's, hut
this Is of small advantage when the
men arrive at the scene of the fire and
have but meagre means lo fight the
Humes that are so destructive under
any circumstances. The philosophy
