Locomotive Standing In Yard* at San
Antonio at Time—Explosion Came
Without Warning—Other
Newe of Interest
San Antonio Tex.—With a force
which crushed at least twenty-five hu-
man beings to death as easily as if
they had been ants and whiclTlevelled
walls and wrecked buildings for a ra-
dius of three blocks, a Southern Pa-
cific locomotive boiler exploded in the
the Southern Pacific yards here.
The locomotive boiler was blown
three blocks. The round house and
copper shops were practically demol-
ished and the men working in them
were hurt by falling walls.
Probably the first one of the dead
to be identified was Waler Jourdan,
an engineer, who was in the cab when
the locomotive exploded.
The locomotive was standing in
the yards near the shops and the ex-
plosion came without warning. Parts
of the round house collapsed and
several small buildings in the shop
enclosure were wrecked.
Rotherburg in Germany Still a
Medieval Village.
As Many Experiments Proposed There
as in Oklahoma
Phoenix, Ariz.—Arizonas first state
legislature convened at noon Monday
and proceeded to the work of organiza-
tion. The election of United States
senators will be the first important
matter taken up after the body gets
into working. The election of the sen-
ators will not occupy much time, as
the advisory primary has already
named Henry P. Ashurst of PreBcott
and Marcus A. Smith of Tuscon to
wear the togas. Both are democrats.
A lengthy legislative program awaits
the lawmakers. It is expected the leg-
islature will undertake the redemption
of the pre-election pledge to submit
to the voters the inclusion of the judic-
iary in the operation of the recall. It
also is expected to submit the ques-
tion of whether the present state offi-
cers shall remain in office until Janu-
ary 1, 1912, or two years later, the
constitution being obscure on that
Among the important mandates of
the constitution are the enactment of
an employers’ liability law and a
workmen’s compulsory compensation
act. A strong endeavor will be made
to secure the submission of an equal
suffrage amendment to the constitu-
tion. A statewide prohibition amend-
ment also will be passed.
Samuel D. Bradner, a switchman in
the Southern Pacific freight yards,
was selected as speaker of the house
of Arizona’s first state legislature by
a caucus of democratic members. The
democrats control the house, 35 to 4.
Bradner was the chief state adminis-
tration candidate for speaker.
Leaders of the majority say the leg-
islature will enact a constitutional
amendment re-insertlng the recall of
the judiciary stricken out at the in-
stance of President Taft.
Interstate Commerce Commission Says
Those to Memphis Are Too High
Washington.—Transportation rates
on cotton seed from various points in
Missouri,Oklahoma and Arkansas and
Louisiana to Memphis, Tenn., were
held by the interstate commerce com-
mission to be unreasonably high and
and unduly discriminate^ and ordered
reduced by May 1.
The existing rates were attacked
by the Memphis freight bureau and

London.—There are still corners of
Europe that are not hackneyed—that
are practically unvisited by tourists
despite the revolution the motor car
has wrought. These quaint places, of
course, become fewer each year, but
every now and then the Illustrated
newspapers of this and other coun-
tries print photographs of some
strange ancient town or of some curi-
ous people that remain much as they
were 300 or 400 years ago.
Such a place is Citta Vecchia, the
ancient capital of Malta, which has re-
mained almost untouched since the
knights of Malta ruled the Island. An-
other such town Is Rothenburg, in Ba-
varia, which, although it Is not quite
unknown to tourists, contains no mod-
ern buildings, while its streets are
still lighted by lanterns swung across
them on chains.
The Sphere this week contains an
account of a wedding in the Schwalm
valley, another spot that has been al-
lowed to remain as it was before mod-
ernity swept away the picturesqueness
from the greater part of the civilized
world. The valley is in western Ger-
many, the Schwalm passing through
the beautifully situated little town of
Treysa, which iB on the Main-Weser
The people of the Schwalm valley
belong to a very robust and tenacious
race. They are very thrifty, extreme-
ly contented with their manner of life,
and indefatigably Industrious, always
struggling to wrest a living by hard
work from the soil. In time of war
the Schwalmer proved themselves
clever soldiers, capable of enduring
great fatigue and hardship. The
Schwalmer loves his home and if his
business has taken him into other
lands he always returns to his native
When a young man needs a wife he
always chooses her from among the
maidens of the valley.
The evening before the wedding the
bridal pair go with some witnesses to
the village council and the clergyman,
the bride wearing for the last time her
girlish red cap, red corners, and red
On the wedding morning the bride
is awake early. At about a quarter to
eight she is already dressed in her
fullest wedding attire. She sits, look-
ing very patient and dignified, putting
on her head the bridal crown. It is
Old House at Rothenburg.
Taxi Robbers Sentenced
New York—Jesse Albronzzo and
Joseph Lamb, indicted in connection
with the $25,000 taxi cab holdup of
February 15, pleaded guilty to rob-
bery In the second degree and were re-
manded for sentence. Of the several
mn, seven have either been convicted
or pleaded guilty, except “Dutch'
Keller, who has not been captured.
Traveler Dies Suddenly
Memphis, Tenn.—David L. Haas, 38,
traveling salesman for the Merchants
and Planters’ Oil company of Texas,
died from the effects of poison taken
Sunday afternoon whether by acident
or with intent to end hiB life has not
been determined.
Must Go to Pen
Olympia, Wash.—The supreme court
afTlrmed the conviction of Charles W.
Wappenstein, former chief of police
of Seattle, on a charge of accepting a
bribe. He was sentenced to serve from
three to ten years at hard labor at the
state penitentiary.
Bribery Charged
Albuquerque, N. M.—Four members
of the New Mexico legislature were
arresNd in Santa Fe Monday night
charged with taking bribes. Bribes
amounting to $500 each are said to
have been paid them.

trimmed with twenty-five rows of red,
gray and silver, ribbons, while the
front is adorned with rosemary, glass
balls and flowers. The bride also
wears an elaborate stomacher em-
broidered in gold and silver. The
bridal outfit includes fifteen petticoats,
a cloth skirt, satin pinafore, ornar
ments, Btockings, gold embroidered
garters, silk handkerchief and long
gloves. For two years of married life
the bride is permitted to wear lilac
and green, but after that she dresses
entirely in black.
To the hard-working Schwalmer folk
a wedding is the brightest and gayest
event of their lives. The bridegroom
in his long-skirted coat adorned with
the wedding insignia has an imposing
The guests and relations having
greeted the young pair with a speech,
the wedding procession begins. The
clergyman after addressing the bridal
pair blesses them, and they Beal their
marriage by joining hands. No rings
are exchanged.
On returning to the wedding house
the husband drinks to his bride. Then
she pledges him. throwing away the
glass afterward so that the tortune of
the house may be secure. Congratula-
tions follow, and then the bridegroom
leads his bride into his father's house.
At the wedding feast the bridal pair
eat from the same plate and drink
from one glass. The food consists of
soup, beef and roast sausage. When
coffee is served the bride appears for
the first time In her dress of green
and lilac.

Senator Beveridge, at a luncheon In
New York, was talking about the child
labor problem.
‘Children are bo plucky and so
cheerful,” he said, “we don’t realize
how horribly overworked they are till
it’s too late—till their bodies and
minds are stunted irretrievably.
“I was once talking to a tiny errand
boy at the height of the Christmas
shopping season. He was working, I
knew, 17 hours a day. As he walked
sturdily along with a mountain of par-
cels piled on his thin, narrow shoul-
ders, I said to him:
“ ‘Do you like your job?’
“'Yes, sir,’ he said; ’I like It fine,
‘Here he grinned up at me gayly
from beneath his load,
" ‘Only I’m afraid I’m doing an au-
tomobile truck out of a job.’ ”

When shown positive and reliable proof that a certain
remedy had cured manv cases of female ills, wouldn’t any
sensible woman conclude that the same remedy would also
benefit her if suffering with the same trouble/
Here are five letters from southern women which prove
the efficiency of Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound.
Elliston, Va.—“I feel it mv duty to express my thanks to you and your
great medicine. I was a sufferer from female troubles and had been con-
fined in bed over one third of my time for ten months. I could not do my
housework and had fainting spells so that my husband could not leave me
alone for five minntes at a time.
“ Now I owe my health to Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound and
Blood Purifier. Whenever I see a suffering woman I want to tell her what
these medicines have done for me and I will always speak a good word for
them. ’—Mrs. Robert Blankenship, Elliston, Montgomery Co., Va.
New Orleans, La.—“I was passing through the Change of Life and be-
fore 1 took Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound I was troubled with
hot flashes, weak and dizzy feelings, backache and irregularities. I would
get up in the morning feeling tired out and not fit to do anything.
“ Since I have been taking your Compound and Blood Purifier I feel all
right. Your medicines are worth their weight in gold.” —Mrs. Gaston
Blondkau, 1541 Polymnia St., New Orleans, La.
Wauchula, Fla.—“ Some time ago I wrote to you giving you my symp-
toms, headache, backache, bearing-down, and discomfort in walking, caused
by female troubles.
“ I got two bottles of Lydia E Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound and a
package of Sanative Wash and that was all I used to make me a well woman.
“ I am satisfied that if I had done like a good many women, and had
not taken your remedies, I would have been a great sufferer. But I started
m time with the right medicine and got well It did not cost very much
either. I feel that you are a friend to all women and I would rather use
your remedies than nave a doctor.”—Mrs. Mattie Hodnot, Box 406, Wau-
chula, Florida.
Martinsburg, W. Va.-” I am glad to say that Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vege-
table Compound has done wonders for my mother, daughter »nH myself.
“ I have told dozens of people about it and my daughter says that when
she hears a girl complaining with cramps, she tells her to take your Com-
pound.”—Mrs. Mary A. Hockehbkbby, 712 N. 3rd St., Martinsburg, W. Va.
Newport News,Va.—“About five years ago I was troubled with falm
and bloating every month that I would have to go to bed.
“A friend told me to take Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound and
I soon found relief. The medicine strengthened me in every way my
doctor approved of my taking it.
“I will be glad if my testimony win help some one who is Buffering
from female weakness.”—Mrs. \Y. J. Blayton, 1029 Hampton Ave, Newport
