THE MARION HOME A BOON TO THIS SECTION OF THE COUNTRY

  An institution that no doubt will prove a boon to this section of country has been established in our neighboring town of Kitzmiller, Md, just across the river from Blaine. It is a home for the treatment and cure of people addicted to the liquor and drug habit, a treatment that has proved so successful that homes have been established at Washington DC, and a number of other places. The parties have bought the old Browning House, at Kitzmiller, which is being remodeled and put in shape for the purposes of the treatment, and will be formally opened Sept first. On our first page we present a splendid picture of the new Marion Home. Dr Hugh Strachan, a well known and popular physician, who has practice medicine for a number of years at Blaine and the surrounding country, will be the physician in charge, which is a guarantee that everything will be conducted properly. Hon J Elbert Chappell, a member of the House of Delegates from Garrett Co, Md, is the superintendent. This institution meets a crying demand for something of this sort here at home, where people can be relieved of these terrible curses that are dragging so many people to destruction, but who are without means to go away for treatment. Write either of these gentlemen for catalogue or for information of any sort.


TRAIN HITS 5 PERSONS

Cumberland Md, Aug 18
  Baltimore and Ohio passenger train No 14 due in Cumberland at 6 pm struck an outing party of six on the Western Maryland Railway extension one mile west of Frostburg station, near the Borden water station, this afternoon 5:50 o'clock.
  The dead are:
  Mrs Carrie Schneider, 27 years old, wife of Oscar Schneider, of Orlando Fla, who was visiting her sister, Mrs Morris Wetmore, of Frostburg.
  Miss Jennie Schneider, 22 years old.
  Miss Bessie Williams, 32 years old.
  The injured are:
  Miss Edna Raley, 30 years old.
  Miss Minnie Schneider, 30 years old.
  John Dixon, a machinist of Baltimore, who was with the party, escaped uninjured. He is employed on the new addition to the State Normal School at Frostburg.
  The party was on an afternoon jaunt and had a camera. Dixon heroically grabbed Miss Bessie Williams, but was too late to save her. The six persons were walking toward Frostburg, returning home, on a curve with their backs toward the approaching train. A freight train had just passed on the west bound track and the party walked over on the eastbound track when it got by.
  Passenger Engineer Cunningham saw the danger and blew the whistle, but he was speeding about 30 miles an hour and his train was upon them before he could slow down to any extent. Olin Skidmore was walking along the track with a child in his arms. He knew of the danger to the party ahead and he rushed along frantically and succeeded in pulling Miss Raley from the track. The pilot hit her, however, and her skull is fractured and she is injured internally.
  Mrs Schneider, a daughter-in-law of Henry Schneider, shoe merchant of Union Street, was a home-coming week visitor. her husband is expected from Florida tomorrow. Miss Jennie Schneider lived at home with her father, Henry Schneider. The dead women are sisters-in-law and Miss Minnie Schneider, who is injured, is a sister of the dead girl. She is a clerk in her father's store.
  Miss Bessie Williams was a daughter of Mrs Helen Williams and the late Thomas J Williams. He was a clerk in the store of Weinberg & Abramson.
