It happened while Hurlbut who was motcrman on the work car, was pushing a car of brick from Mayville to the good roads work in progress on the Portage road. This was about 3 o'clock that morning. The trolley track runs along the side of this road most of the way, and the grades after the track reaches the top of the hill north of Mayville are very steep. When breaking over the hill just south of the Schwartz switch the weight of the car prove.i too much for the motor car and motorman lost control. Dis- New Initial Paper. Musical Fittings.

Nov. 26th. The car which he was handling was an ordinary type railroad freight car switched from the Pennsylvania railroad to the traction line. It was loaded, it is said, with brick. Rev. Dr. Faber is the author of a number of religious books, among them being "Stained Glass Windows," "Thoughts for Thoughts," "The Church for the Times" and "Nobiscum Deos." Prendergast&Douglas will contain the fullest cause for gratitude if The two cars dashed down the grade with a speed which is said by those who saw the accident to have approached a mile a minute. Just before the two cars strui k the Schwartz switch, Hurlbut, convinced that they could not keep on the track through the switch, jumped. His body hit a pole beside the track, and his death was practically instantaneous. Westergren was on the car of brick, it is stated, and stayed there. The car struck the switch with terrific force, tearing up not less than 200 feet of track, and then going over in the ditch. Westergren was thrown with the car, but most fortunately escaped critical injury. General Insnrance and Surety Bonds Rev. Dr. Faber is a gifted orator. His first service as a bishop was the confirmation of a large class at St. John's church in Detroit last Sunday. •Kill. "Your Dressirvg" Mr. Fruit Grower: Something New.
