change," said the man, shoving into
her hands his tray of violets. He dis-
appeared through the front door of
the hotel. He did not come back.
Broadway Is not used to seeing
pretty women selling violets, and a
line of prospective male customers
was swiftly growing. Mrs. Ashley at
tempted to conceal the tray under her
coat, but without success.
Sam Merger. a theatrical manager,
came along. He realized the situa-
tion, relieved Mrs. Ashley of her wares
and sold out the remaining six
bunches on the tray.
A little later, at Forty-seventh street
and Broadway. Mrs. Ashley caused
the arrest of George Tasso, of No. 155
West Twenty si venth street. Tasso
had friends to prove an alibi in court
and was immediately discharged.

Blood of Patient Turned Black By
Gas Withdrawn and Saline
Norfolk, March 22.—When Moses
Goodman, of this city, regained his
senses there was a day missing in
his span of years that he will know
nothing about and it will take lots of
explaining to make him fully realize
that he has been nearer to the shores
beyond than most people ever have
been without actually getting there.
An oxygen generator and respira-
tor are directly responsible for Good-
nil's life being saved.
Friday night Moses came over the
river and went to the theatre. For a
couple of days all the gas in the
Eighth ward had been cut off because
workmen were repairing a leak in the
main, and Moses evidently left the
jet in his room widef open and went
Two pints of blood was taken from
the arm of Moses, and a thousand cu-
bic centimeters of saline solution In-
jected. The action of the gas had
turned the blood of Moses black, and
he was as near being a dead man as
could be imagined.
Dr. 1.aw ford had one of Professor
Poe's oxygln generators and respira-
tors in his hospital and he resolved
to try It. This machine has restored
dead animals to life after they had
been chloroformed, but no real test
had ever been made upon a human
being. Pure oxygen was pumped Into
the patient's lungs and pumped out
again. The very slight natural res-
piration that existed when the man
was brought to the sanitarium was
accentuated by this treatment with the
injection of powerful stimulants. The
generator was kept busy all day long.
ftl'EM FOR DIVORCE.
T. J. Morley has filed suit In the dis-
trict court for divorce from Leon Morley.
The couple was married at I'onca t'ity,
August 23, 1006. Besides accusing
his wife of gross neglect, Morley says
she Idled her time away, gadded and gos-
siped; remaining away from home until
way late at night He also says she finally
left him, taking all the household furniture.

Grand Canyon's Toll of
Every year the river an.l Hie Oran.l
Canyon or the Colorado take their toll
In human life," recently nai.l Freder-
ick S. Dellenbaugh. the artist author,
who has painted pictures and written
books about that wonderful river that
rushes for hundreds of miles through
corKes hundreds of feet deep, says the
New York Press.
"When I was with Major Powell on
his exploring expedition through the
(irnnd Canyon, forty years ago. we
lost several men, ami the few other
expeditions that have followed ours
since then all have had to pay ihe
river Its price in the same way," he
continued. "Powell's party was the
first journey white men ever made
down through that perilous portion of
the Colorado river, and almost every
day of the many months it took was
full of danger. There would be more,
only so few people venture into that
dangerous part of the Grand Canyon.
No one knows what the total toll is
each year, for In those vast desert
spaces through which the river runs
a man may disappear In many wayi
and his body or bones may not be
found for years if ever. Two years
ago a skeleton of a man was discov
ered In Marble Canyon, lying on a
rocky shelf a little above the whirling
waters of the river. A newspaper
dated in 1900 was In the pocket of
his coat, so that It 1s likely the man
perished eight years ago at least.
Whether he was killed while trying
to scale the Insurmountable walls, or
whether he died of starvtion, no one
"That part of the Colorado river
never gives up its dead. Those who
fall into the water's clutches literally
are dashed to pieces and no trace of
them ever is found. The stream runs
with such exceeding swiftness and
turbulence in so many places that
nohting less fragile than a giant bowl-
der can long exist.

Snubbed By Church; Ne-
gro Champion Indignant
(From the Kansas City Journal)
To those who may not be entirely
conversent with the current trend of
pugilistic sport we would remark that
one ".lack" Johnson is the present
heavyweight champion of the world,
having wrested the title from ono
"Tommy" Burns at Sydney. Australia.
Johnson, be it also remembered, is a
liuskv negro ring artist who very nat-
urally takes vast pride in the fact that
he has vanquished all comers, white
and black, anil today he Is being
lionized in I-ondon, where the color
line is not drawn with the same rigid-
ity as iu this country. But, despite all
the honors that have come to "Jack"
Johnson through the medium <>f his
fists, he is not happy. There is some-
thing upon the negro pugilist's mind,
anil this is his trouble:
"Though I walloped Burns," ob-
served Johnson, "he is far more popu
lar than I. and all because of the color
line. 1 am member of the African
Methodist church, and in my fights In
America 1 could always count upon
the support of the colored members of
this denomination. When I went to
Sydney 110 Methodists welcomed me,
and 1 was unnoticed by members of
the church when thrown into their
company. 1 shall report to America
how 1 was treated by my own denomi
This is Indeed a most unique plaint
of a pugilist. All the explanation that
was offered by the offending ministry
In Australia was the statement that
"the Methodist church draws no color
line, but it naturally does not counte-
nance prize fighting." As this state-
ment failed to pacify the injuied
heavyweight, there is every indication
that the matter will be referred to the
' supreme denominational authority in
; this country.
Johnson is hurt. He Is touched up
! on his most sensative point. In fact.
1 .1 stiff blow on the jaw would have
been far easier to bear than this de-
liberate cut from his co-religionists.
. We have not been informed as to the
social status of a negro pugilist among
those of his own race, but evidently
Johnson exj ects—na> demands—dem-
; onstrative fellowship among the Meth-
: o.lists of the negro persuasion. It is
a-point that was never raised in the
1 case of Jeffries. Sullivan, O'Brien or
! any of the white sluggers of history
| arid it has remained for this new negro
I champion to force the issue.

the Colorado in the Grand Canyon: 'El
Valle de los Padras,' which is known
as 'the Fathers' Crossing,' I)anby
Crossing, ee Ferry and Stone's Fer-
ry. The last two are about 300 miles
apart, and there Is no way of crossing
In between except by boat—In some
stretch of comparatively smooth wa-
ter—or by flying. The walls of the
canyon rise vertically for many hun-
dreds of feet, and the places where
it is possible to reach the river are
far between. Even these fords of the
Colorado are dangerous, the water
runs so fast and the footing is so in-
The Whirlpool rapids of the Niaga-
ra river below the falls are terrible to
contemplate, but it can be said with
out exaggeration that the Niagari
rapids are peaceful waters compared
to some of the long stretches of foam
on the Colorado. The whirlpools on
the Colorado are of the true type -tin

there is a broad hol.ow, funnel shaped
hole I the center of them through
which one might peer down a good
many feet if he could hover over It
After the river emerges from the
Grand canyon it flows through a flat
country into the Gulf of California.
Even there it is a treacherous stream,
full of sandbars and quicksands, and
almost as dangerous to cross as in
the rapids above.
