Locomotive Crashes Into Car When
Motor Goes Dead, Leaving Machine
Helpless On Track Occupants Jump.
Portland. June C To the instinct of
a child, perhaps inherited from our
simian antecedents, to grasp the near
est object, is attributed today the sav
ing of the life of three year old Eois
r razier, seated in an automobile struck
by a Southern Pacific train liear
Clackamas Station.
The automobile, containing the child,
her mother, Mrs. RuUy E. Frazier, and
Mrs. James Einn of 1170 E. Tavlor
street, and her two children, 7 and 5
respectively, went dead on the railroad
track with the train approaching. All
of the occupants with the exception of
the girl either jumped or were lifted
from the machine. After the crash no
trace of the child could be found in
the . wreckage of the automobile. A
search of the engine revealed iittle Eois
clinging to a brace rod running from
the boiler to the pilot bed. She had
instinctively grabbed it when the en
gine struck. One of her bgs was brok
en but she was otherwise uninjured.
Child Left Behind.
The older people in the auto leaped
to the ground and, -just as Mr, Einn
made a rach for the i.ttle Frazier girl,
the crash tamo. The auto was hurle-d
to the right of the engino as distance of
forty feet, and tue baby was literally
picked up and placed on the pilot of
the engine. The tot grasped hold of
the rods which run from the boiler to
the pilot bed, and clung there. In the
meantime the train crew was making
a frantic tcarch under the wrecked

Kapp s and Mrs. Dean's stroll, Miss
Ashton continued, ended in tho parlor,
where tney doed the room and re
mained all night.
Mrs. Dean, said tho deposition, ad
dressed Kapp as "Billy" and Rapp
called Mrs. Dean "Nonnio".
A number of letters and telegrams
were also introduced. One letter from
Chicago, signed "Hilly", referred -to
"Xonnie" as "sweet clover" and de
clared that the writer missed her
"aroma in this city of stockyard
The letters' author evidently thought
considerably of "aromas" and "-sweet
clover", for in another letter ho said:
"This morning's mail brought me a
windfall- three letters from you. That
apartment of yours is a bugbear and
a leaden vault. If it were not for that
I could have you with me. Vou don't
know how much I wmit you, jou senti

over my sister, too, but who could re
sist your charms?
"Vou aie sweet clover, aroma and
all. I want my sweet clover with me
but the aroma isn't here.
"Vou are my incense, my shrine. I
worship yon."
Still another letter asserted:'
"Vou are the sum total of nil love
all that i lovely in woman."
One ol the telegrams addressed to
Mrs. Dean was as follows:
"I hereby certify that you are the
best girlie ever, l.ove. Greetings.
Lillian S,hmidt, another roomer at
Mrs. Dean's, deposed that she saw
Kapp ami Mrs. Dean kissiug.
" Rapp," said the deposition, "would
cook, wash dishes, run household er

thing else that Mrs. Dean wanted him
to do."
