THE VICTIMS ARE All CHINESE
European Passengers Escape in Night
Clothes—Laden With Sllke—Steam-
er Burned at 3:10 O’clock This
Hong Kong, Oct. H. — The British
steamer Hankow, from Cauton was
burned at :’.:10 o'clock this (Sunday)
morning while lying alongside her
wharf. Hundreds of Chinese were
hurtled to death and a valuable cargo
was dentroyed. All the Europenn pas-
sengers and crew were saved.
The Hnnkow, with 2,000 Chinese
passengers nnd seven Europenn, nud
a cargo including 30,000 bales of mal-
ting silk ;.nd 1,000 hales of waste silk,
arrived at 3 o'clock, and was shortly
moored at the wharf.
The captain directed tho chl-rf
engineer to turn on the water through
the fire hose. This was impossible,
for in five minutes after tho alarm
was given the Hankow was ablaze
fore and aft. Captain Bruch warned
the passengers, who rushed down tho
gangway, the ladles in their night
clothes. Horrifying and cries to save
their lives were heard from the Chin-
ese. Hundreds were burned to death
or jumped into the harbor and were
The firemen made great efforts to
extinguish the flames, which leaped to
a height of over 00 feet.
The British steamer Powan, which
was berthed at. the same wharf, was
towed out to save her from destruc-
Governor Nathan suggested scut-
tling tho ship, hut the suggestion was
found to be impractible.
The steamer Hankow was owned by
the China Navigation company of
London, nnd was built in Glasgow in
1870. Tho vessel was of Iron, her di-
mensions being as follows: Length,
308.5; beam, 42.3; depth, 15.2. She
registered 3,073 tons, gross.
The fire was brought under control
at 0 o’clock a. m . at which time only
the shell and hall of the Hankow re-
mained. The fire fighters have al-
ready recovered 75 of the bodies. Of
the cargo, 2,000 bales of raw silk were
saved, but badly damaged by water.
One theory Is that the fire was caus-
ed by the overturning of a lantern by
a Chinese on hoard. The second the-
ory was that an opium smoker acci-
dentally set fire to matting, and an-
other theory Is that the fire was caus-
ed by the crossing of electric wires.
’ FARMER BECAME INSANE.
Kills Wife, Six Children and Then
Knoxville, Tent!.. Oct. 14. — Chal-
burn Mint ,'th, aged 50 years and or.e
of the most pn.miner;; farmers of
Cooke county, today murdered his
wife and four children, fatally injured
two other children and then commit-
ted suicide by cutting his throat. The
tragedy was enacted at the Mintooth
home near Newport, Tenn. It is be-
lieved Mintooth became suddenly In-
sane. An ax was the weapon used
for the deadly work. The wife and
children were brained and death must
have been Instantaneous. The two
children who were still alive at 10
o'clock this morning cannot recover,
their skulls having been crushed. It
is regarded as miraculous that they,
too, did not c’’e Instantly.

Heavy Cost of Unpaid Postage.
One of the most curious contests
ever before the public was conductod
by many thousand persons under too
offer of the Postum Cereal Co., Ltd.,
of Rattle Creek, Mich., for prizes of
31 boxes of gold and 300 greenbacks
to those making the most word3 out
of the letters Y-I-O-Grape-Muts.
The contest was started in Febru
ary, 1906, and it was arranged to have
the prizes awarded on Apr. 30, 1900.
When the public announcement ap-
peared many persons began to form
the words from these letters, some-
times the whole family being occupied
evenings, a combination of amuse-
ment and education.
After a while the lists began to
come in to the Postum Office and be-
fore long tbe volume grew until it re-
quired wagonB to carry tlie mail.
Many of the contestants were thought-
less enough to send their lists with
insufficient postage and for a period
it cost the Company from twenty-five
to fifty-eight and sixty dollars a day
to pay the unpaid postage.
Young ladies, generally those who
had graduated from the high school,
were employed to examine these lists
and count the correct words. Web-
ster's Dictionary was the standard
and each list was very carefully cor-
rected except those which fell below
8000 for it soon became clear that
nothing below that could win. Some
of the lists required the work of a
young lady for a solid week on cac-h
individual list. The work was done
very carefully and accurately but the
Company had no idea, tft the time the
offer was made, that the people would
respond eo generally and they were
compelled to fill every available space
In the offices with these young lady
examiners, nnd notwithstanding they
worked steadily, it was impossible
to complete the examination until
Sept. 29, over six months after tbe
prizes should have been awarded.
This delay caused a great many in-
quiries and naturally created some
dissatisfaction. It has been thought
best to make this report in practically
all of the newspapers in the I'nited
States and many of thr magazines in
order to make clear to the people the
conditions of the contest.
Many lists contained enormous
numbers of words which, under the
rules, had to he eliminated "Pegger"
would count "Peggers" would not.
Some lists contained over 50,000
words, the great majority of which
were cut out. The largest liets were
checked over two and in some cases
three times to insure accuracy.
The $100.00 gold prize was v on by
U D. Reese-. 1227 15th St. Denver.

Tricks of Smugglers.
Double-hotlomod bottles and other
vessels aro common contrivances for
smugglers. In order not to nwalaen
suspicion they are usually tilled with
some beverage. Ig-er or wine, and this
is duly declared by tlie man in charge
of tho vehicle lit which they are ear-
ned. At the present time, however,
tho officers aro never deceived by the
double-bottomed bottles, nor, for that
matter, by tho hollow horse collar,
which at one time was a favorite dodge
for the alcohol smuggler.

If moro than ordinary skill in playing brings tho honors of the
game to tho winning player, oo exceptional merit in a remedy
ensures the commendation of the well informed, and as a rea-
sonable amount of outdoor life and recreation is conducivo to
the health and strength, so does a perfectiaxative tend to one’s
improvement in cases of constipation, biliousness, headaches,
etc. It is ail important, however, in selecting a laxative, to
choose one of known quality and excellence, like the evor
pleasant Syrup of Figs, manufactured by the California Fig
Syrup Co., a laxativo which sweetens and cleanses the system
effectually, when a laxative is needed, without any unpleasant
after effects, as it asts naturally and gently on the internal
organs, simply assisting nature when nature needs assistance,
without griping, irritating ordebiliating the internal organs in
any way, as it contains nothing of an objectionable or injurious
nature. As tlie plants which aro combined with tho figs in
the manufacture of Syrup of Figs are known to physicians to
act most beneficially upon tlie system, the remedy has met
with their general approval as a family laxative, a fact well
worth considering in making purchases.
It is because cf the fact that S YRUF OP FIGS
is a remedy of known quality and excellence, and approved Dy
physicians that has led to its use by so many millions of woll
informed people, who would not use any remedy of uncertain
quality or inferior reputation. Every family should have a
bottle cf tho genuine on hand at all times, to use when a
laxativo remedy is required. Please to remember that the
genuine Syrup of Figs is for sale in bottles of one size
only, by ail reputable druggists, and that full name of the
company—California Fig Syrup Co., is plainly pointed on
the front of every package. Regular price, 50c per bottle.
