London.—The big White Star line
Steamer Arabic, formerly a favorite
ship of the Liverpool-Boston service,
but which on her present trip was on
the way to New York, was torpedoed
and sunk by a German submarine,
southeast of Fastnet and fifty miles
west of the Lusitania's grave.
The steamer, according to a state-
ment of the White Star line, was at-
tacked without warning and went
down in leu minutes. Of the 423 per-
sons on board—181 passengers and 242
members of the cre\#—39 are missing
and are believed to have been
drowned. Most of those who have
not been accounted for belong to the
crew. Only six of the passengers are
The revised list showed that Mrs.
Louise Brupuiere and Edmund Woods,
imong American passengers, were
drowned. There had been 26 Amer-
icans on board. The survivors left
the stoamer in the ship's boats
and were picKed up later by passing
vessels and taken to Queenstown.
Details of the sinking of the Arabic
are lacking, but thar. me loss of life
was not greater doubtless was due
to the fact that the weather was fine
and that steamers plying the German
submarine war zone now keep their
boats swung out and otherwise pre-
pared for emergencies.
The torpedo that sunk the Arabic
etruck her on the starboard side 100
feet from her steru. The vessel had
left Liverpool and taken a southerly
course well off the Irish coast, doubt-
less with a view of avoiding the sub-
marines which frequent the waters
nearer the shore.
When some fifty miles west of
■where the Lusitania was sunk in May
the German underwater beat rose to
the surface and launched a torpedo.
The marksmanship of the Germans,
as in the case of the Lusitania. was
deadly accurate and like the Lusitania
the big liner quickly settled down and
ehortly disappeared from view.
Some of the survivors say that they
had just witnessed the torpedoing of
a British steamer, presumably the
Dunsley and that this |had caused
great alarm on board the Arabic. In
their fright the passengers had rushed
for life preservers and had barely ad-
justed thein when the German sub-
marine turned its torpedo against the

persons missing, many of whom ai
believed to have perished and damage
to crops, buildings, ranlroads, shipping,
livestock und other property aggregat-
ing close to $50,000,000, was the '.oil
taken by the hurricano which swept
this section Ia?t week. These figure"
were reached from a careful compila-
tion of what are considered the most
authentic reports of the loss of life
and property received since the ces-
sation of the storm.
Of the known dead, 194 were resi-
dents of the gulf coast section and
sixty-two were drowned when the ves-
sels they were aboard s'unk. Forty
three of the missing were members ot
members of boat crews. Those who
perished in Galveston Island, including
eight in the city proper, numbered
fiftv-three and ten were still reporte 1
missing from the island. Galveston's
share of the property loss was placed
at approximately $6,000,000.
Reports received here from all over
the affected section were that all the
cities and towns gradually are recov-
ering from the disastrous storm and
that conditions are approaching nor-
mal throughout the gulf coast.
Predictions that direct railroad ser-
vice into Galveston from the mainland
will be resumed within one month
were made by officials of the Gulf.
Colorado & Santa FA railroad. They
stated that 1.700 feet of the $2,000,000
causeway had been washed away on
the Galveston side and 3,739 feet des-
troyed near the mainland. Several
hundred men were at work on the
mainland Saturday clearing the right
of way of debris, repairing the line and
making preparations to begin buildinf
a single track trestle across the bay
from Virginia Point to this city.
Residents of Galveston appear op-
timistic that they soon will have a
complete water supply and then they
can enjoy the conveniences of electric-
ity, gas, street car and railroad service.
Sunday was observed at all churches
and no business was transacted by
merchants, but work of clearing up
was carried forward without a halt.
Engineers reported that divers dis-
covered ninety-six feet of the sub-
'merged water main across the bay to
be missing in one section, probably
the result of a barge having been
blown across it during the storm.
So far there has been no suffering
for water in the city, but tlfe incon-
venience is great. The gulf is calm
again, and the beach was dotted with
bathers Sunday afternoon.
The l'st of dead in this vicinity was
brought bp to 257 by the finding of an-
other body on Galveston island. Un-
confirmed renorts were also received
that thirty-eight bodies had been re-
covered on Boiiver peninsula, and that
four were missing there. The total
number of missing stands at sixty-nine.

GINGERBREADOF OLD DAYS
Was a Luxury That Filled an "Aching
Void" In the Down
What memories this reference to the
five-cent ginger cake of commerce will
arouse In the minds of men approach-
ing or past middle age who passed
their boyhood in the country!
At all public gatherings where con-
cessions were given for the serving of
refreshments It was the chief feature
in the order of the day down to a
period of much later than half a cen-
tury ago. And then It seems to have
disappeared, suddenly and mysterious-
ly, after the manner of the disappear-
ance of the bootjack and the passen-
ger pigeon, and like them probably
never to return.
Who among us whose hair has grown
thin ■ atop or disappeared altogether
cannot recall the bill of fare of the
refreshment venders In those earlier
and simpler days at fairs, town meet-
ings and Fourth of July celebrations!
The assortment was not elaborate, but
It was filling and satisfying, and one
got a good deal for his money, says
the Blddeford (Me.) Dally Journal.
Most conspicuously displayed were
those ginger cakes, everywhere lo-
cally known as "baker's gingerbread,"
to distinguish it from homemade gin-
gerbread, which lacked the delicate
color, the spicy fragrance, the work-
manlike finish and pleasing regularity
of the imported article. Then there
were coffee served in big mugs; crack-
ers and cheese, baked beans and
brown bread, not infrequently home-
made doughnuts, and always raw oy-

Washington.—News of the torpedo-1
Ing of the British steamer Arabic of
the White Star line with Americans
on board came as a shock to officials
of the United States government who
bad hoped since the dispatch of the
last American note there would be no
further aggravation of an already
tense situation between the United
States and Germany.
Official information was meager and
It was only through press dUpatciies
that it was heard here that the vessel
was torpedoed without warning.
While it was recognized that a final
canvass of the survivors might reveal
that no American lives were lost, the
torpedoing without warning of a ves-
sel carrying Americans has in Itself
been pronounced by the United States
government as a violation of its rights
which, if repeated, would be regarded
as "deliberately unfriendly."
