were Beverely cut and brul3ed and
more than a hundred persons .mostly
women and children were slightly
shaken up when the Green Lake car
smashed the rear end of ft trailer ot
- ithe Wallingford Avenue car on West
Lake tressel. llany of the occupants
j had a very narrow escape from be-
ing crushed to death. If the Impact
had been a little harder both cars
would have gone over the tressel and
the harvest of death resultant from,
this would have been Blmply awful
as the trestle Is an exceedingly hlgli
one and the car were crowded.
