So, if not for appearance sake, for your f-tomach's

having those teeth out and replaced by a perfect

Russia and Japan forfeits the fruits of

FRIGHTFUL ACCIDENT UPON NEW
YORK ELEVATED ROAD.
SWITCH SIGNALS SET WR0N0.
Ninth Avenue Car, Loaded With Ha
inan Freight, Plunges into
the Street. ,
Horrible Sight Is Viewed by People
Passing Along Street Motorman Is
Fugitive, but Conductor, Switchman
and Guard Arrested.
"NKW YOICK, Sept. 11. The death
list of today's accident on the Ninth
avenue elevated railroad, when a car
crowded with early morning workers
on their way down town, pitched head
long into the street, fetands at twelve.
Three men are in the hospitals with
fractured skulls, one of these yet "un
identified at the Koosevelt hospital is
unconscious and not exjected to live. .
More than two score of persons were
injured, many seriously. The cause of
the accident and immediate responsibil
ity are not yet known. The motorman
of the: wrecked train is a fugitive,
while the switchman, conductor and
four, guards are under arrest. What
ever may have caused the mistake, the
accident, the" worst in the history of
overhead railroads in New York, came
when a southbound train on the Ninth
avenue line switched to the Sixth ave
nue line at Fifty-third street junction.
The motorman, exjweting a 'clear track
on the direct line of Ninth avenue,
without regarding the warning signal
that the switch was open, rushed the
train along at a high rate of seed.
The first car swung around the right
angle curve, holding to the rails becaoso
of the weight of the train behind. Then
the couplings broke and the second far
was whirled about almost end for end
and pitched into the street.
The first indicatoin the people on the
sidewalk had of the wreck was a loud
rumbling along the overhead structure.
Looking up they saw a shower of
sparks. Then followed splinters and the
sound of splitting timbers. Suddenly
the outer guard raij of the railroad
structure gave way, a score of bodies
were hurled through space and. with a
deafening crash the car fell to the
street. For an instant it stood fairly
on end, then the sides gave way, belch
ing nut a mass of humanity.!
The passengers who had not jumped
from the platforms and windows before
the plunge came, were thrown into a
mass at the forward end" of the car and
as the injured men and -sVmcn were
strugling fo free themselves the heavy
front trucks of the third car on the
train fell across their midst as the car
itself jumped partly off the elevated
structure. Almost every ambulance in
Manhattan was summoned and the In
jure. 1 and dead were hurried away with
all speed." F.ight persons were dead
when they were taken out of the wrck
and four did in the hospitals.
Before the great crowds collected by
the news of the wreck could lw cleared
away .the police were compelled to use
their heavy night sticks on ft number
of men who were attempting to snatch
jewelry- ami other valuable from the
victims. The 'officers had notime to
make arrests, contenting themselves in
drubbing the miscreants as heavily as
they could. Conductor Johnson in a
statement said: "The signals were set
wrong. That was the trouble. They
were green and yellow which is for the
Sixth avenue train."
