Oklahoma City., May 20.—Over two
Oklahoma City homes the gloom of
death and in the heart* of hundreds
of friends in poignant crlef followin.,

315 West Kigth street, and Miss Mabe'
Winn, 312 West Eigth street, in the
Canadian river n« ar Wheeler park ai
4:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon.
Light hearted and care free the
young women, with eight of then
young friends were enjoying to ttoo
full extent of an afternoon of pleasure
as they walked out upon the runaway
at the sand dipping station to pose rr?i
a photograph whic/t one of the party
was to take. W hile they stood ther®

it was only by the heroic efforts of
the young men of the party and other*
who rushed to their assistance that
Miss Maude and Bessie Allred an 1
Lottie Dyer were saved from a Tate
similar to that of their two friends.
Attracted by screams of the young
people hundreds of peop'e rushed from
Wheeler Park to the scene and a num-
ber of the men began working val-
iantly in the search for tie missing
girls. The wildest excitement pr>
vailed for many minutes while the ef
forts at rescue were in progress
Weeping women stood on the bank
waiting for the recovery of the bodies
and hoping against hope that life
would not be extinct.
To add to the difficulty of finding the
bodies was the fact that neither of the
drowned girls had been seen afte-
their plunge into the stream. The
searchers dived repeatedly but the
bodies were not found for almost three
quarters of an hour later.
With feverish haste the efforts to
revive the young women was begun
as soon as the bodies were taken from
the water. Medical aid had been hur-
riedly summoned. Their bodies wen
chafed and every effor made to estab-
Msh respiration. But it was all in
vain. Not a sign of life was to be
found in either.

ited the agency, he found quite a bit
of glanders, and had a number of the
horses killed. It appears to have all
been wiped out now.
Dr. E. T. Davidson of the National
Bureau is expected from Washington
this week to consult with the Okla-
homa authorities in regard to the dis-
posal of three valuable stallions which
are afflicted with a malignant disease
of a rare kind, and which the Okla-

value of the animals, are loath to kill
until their diagnosis is cor-oberated by
the higher authorities.

Fear that a Rescue Might be
The jail break of Franks and McCul-
lough, two of the Asher bank robbers,
who got away from the county Jail at
Tecumseh last week is exciting con-
siderable interest. It Is believed now
that they were assisted from the out-
side and the sheriff is making a thor-
ough investigation and believes that
he will be able to find out exactly how
the deal was worked. Some light on
the situation is gained from William
Ashby, alias Charles Wilson, who was
brought here Sunday night from Okla-
homa City. He was left in Oklahoma
City by Sheriff Grace Saturday night
because of a rutnor that his pals had
planned to stop the train near Dale
and affect his freedom. He was cap-
tured in Denver as one of the Asher
bank robbers and admits sending mon-
ey to Franks while In Jail, stating
that Franks had done him a favor at

When asked what trade Franks had
he said none, which puts poor color
on the story that he was a locksmith.
