Co.’s line at Black Bu’ te Summit, 22
miles north of Dunsmuir,between the
southbound California express and a
special northbound passenger train of
seven coaches, carrying mustered-out
volunteers from the Philippines. Two
helper engines, a baggage car and a
mail car were badly wrecked. A bo-
bo on the soldier train was Instantly
killed and another had his arm and
leg broken. Engineer H. Wentz of
the express train sustained serious in
juries, and a number of passengers re
ceived bruises. The locality of the
wreck was a very sharp curve, and the
two trains were moving at tbe rate of
20 miles an hour when the crash
came. That so few casualties occurred
is m<>st remarkable. Tbe blame for
the accident seems to attach to the
engineer of the soldier special train,
who failed to note the time of the
regular passenger train.

pains and was very weak and short of
breath. My circulation was very bad,
causing numbness of limbs, dizziness
and headache all the time. My heart
would sometimes feel as if there was a
heavy weight on it. I had never been
healthy and strong, bo you can readily
see that I was in no condition to with
stand such a combination of ailments.
“I grew worse very rapidly and all the
doctors I tried failed to check my decline.
A friend of my husband told him how
much good Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills
had done his wife no I commenced taking
them and can now state that they are
the only relief I ever had. The first box
helped me so much that I was thoroughly
convinced of the efficacy of the remedy.
I continued the treatment for several
weeks, using six Is >xes in all.
“In conclusion I will say that if any
one, who is suffering the same as I was,
will take Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills as di
rected they wiU be rewarded.”
