A Curious Birth.
On Monday morning last, near this
city there was bom to a most respecta
ble couple a very interesting curiosity.
The child was perfectly formed from
the waist down. Above the waist, two
bodies seem to have been pressed or
wedded together, with two distinct,
separate and natural beads; three
arms and four bands. The right arm
of one aud tbe left arm of tbe other
were In one limb, ending in two per
fect hands. The other two artuB and
hands were perfectly formed. The
beads were on seperate necks, but the
bodies were so closely knitted together
tbat tbe distinct features of each could
hardly be detected. The beads and
faces were perfect aud tbe expressions
of tbe two faces were natural and
pleasing. Each head bad an abundant
growth of hair. The child was born
dead and its picture wae taken at the
Boyd Gallery. Dr. L. Foley was the
attending physician aud has one of
the photographs. The remains were
buried in tbe Masonic cemetery.

A Bralteman Was Instantly Killed arid
the Conductor Afterward Diet.
The worst wreok In the history of
Oregon Paclflo railroad happened with
a freight train last Monday afternoon
at bridge 24, Just weit of tunnel No. 8,
about one and a half miles east of Pio
neer and twelve miles east of Toledo,
ths nearest telegraph office. Tbe
freight train was- going west. It had
Just unloaded several cars of ties, pas
sed through the tunnel and upon tbe
bridge, when, as nearly as can bi told,
one of thenars jumped tbe track, the
jar of the bumping causing the bridge
to break and go down. It fell Just
as I be engine had crossed.
The Albany Hearld gives the follow
ing account of the wreck:
The accident happened at the bridge
across Yaquina river which beigns
about forty feet west of the west end
of the tunnel. Tbe engine was on the
bridge when it is thought a car heavily
loaded with stave bolts jumped tbe
track, and striking the timbers caused
the bridge to collapse. Fewler said he
saw the cars going down and he
Jumped. He was hurled against tbe
timbers in tbe edge of the tunnel and
brueled considerably, but was not seri
The passenger (rain was about forty
mlnntes behind tbe freight train, aud
unless they were flagged must have
emerged from the tunnel to crash Into
the wreck. Fowler ran through the
tunnel and flagged the passenger
train, which proceeded at once to the
scene of the wreck. This waa about
8:80 p. m.
When they arrived several farmers
were already doing all in their power
to help the victims of tbe disaster.
Brakeman Wilcox was nowhere to be
seen and Conductor Campbell was
pinned down to a flat ear by falling
timbers aud was crushed Into Insensi
bility. It was only after forty miautes
of bard work tbat he was extricated,
and in spite of prompt medical assist
ance from the relief train wblch ar
rived as soon as passible, with Dr. G.
W. Mastou, the company's surgeon,
from this city, and a train from Yaqu
ina with Dr. Rich on boaad. be never
regained consciousness, and died at
From W. M. Toner, who was on the
passenger train, and Conductor Tway,
who bad charge of the relief train.lt a
learned that tbe bridge was ope of the
best on the road and undoubtedly the
cause of the accident was a car jump
ing the track.
The engine and tender remained
upon the track, having crossed In
safety, but the top of the cab was
knocked off by tailing timbers, ono of
which struck the fireman, Robert
Ferciful, aud bis band was badly
burned by graeping a hot steam pipe.
Tbe engineer, Arthur Casteel, escaped
Tbe remains of Brakeman Joseph
Wilcox were found beneath the wreck
in four feet of water, be having been
The remai.Ms of Conductor John
Campbell were taken to Corvallls. He
is a brother ot Mrs. E. TJ. Will, of this
city, and was a bright, capable young
man, liked by everybody. He wae a
member of tbe Conductors Union, the
A. O. V. W. aud Knights of Macca
bees. The remains of Brakeman Joseph
Wilcox were brought to this city, and
will be taken to Philomath for burial.
His wife will have the sympathy of all
in her affllcltlon. The deceased was a
young man of excellent habits aud was
popular with all who knew him.
Mrs. KJme, who departed from this
life April 29, 18SS, at 2:00 p. ill., was
horn in North Carolina, March 14,

with her parents to Indiana. At
twelve years of age she made a profes
sion of religion and Joined the Metho
dist church. Her maiden name wa,s
Mary Margaret Smith. In the year
1848 she was married to James Kline,
with whom she lived until her death.
Shortly after her marriage, with ber

land Presbyteriau ehurch, where she
lived a loyal and consistent christian
the remainder of her life. Iu 1853
they moved to Oregon and located
near Eugene, where they lived about
ten years moving next to Springfield.
They moved from there to Bodavllle
four years ago where they lived until
her death. Wherever the lias lived
