AN ATTEMPT ON DIAZ
Abortivo Efforts to Take His Life at the
San Antonio, Toxas, Sept. 25. A prom
inont railway ollicial who reached San
Antonio this morning from City of
Mexico, and whof-o large interest in the
naighboriiig republic render it wise for
him to be very guarded in that he says,
relates a startling .story of an attempt on
tlw lifo of President Diaz. The story in
brief is as follows:
'During the national colebration on the
11th instant au immense crowd of people
of all clashes surged around the executive
palace at uinht to do homage to Diaz.
During the climax of the festivities while
Iwinds wore playing and fireworks were
popping and sir..ing the loudest, the presi
des stopped out, onto the front piazza in
response to deal'eniug calls to witness the
pyrotechnic display. No sooner had his
martial form appeared on t he gallery before
a volley of musketry Bounded above the
din of music, Jiroworks and yells and bits
of brick and timber began to HyarouuU
his head. He retreated hurriedly to his
room, followed by his staff. Three bullets
whizzed dangerously near him.
Forty men are known to have
been concerned in the niurdorous plot,
fifteen of vhom are now in jail
and others are fleeing from the
country with the military on their track.
The news of the dastardly deed has been
.suppressed by the government officers.
The reason of the attack is assigned to a
variety of emu-os, the mo-t important of

of crack riders for the one mile cham

cate that Windle is without an active peer

Windle is a Bay state boy, and although

Among tho white winged yachts that
are wafted swiftly over tho waters of the

Oriole is the largest schooner yacht in tho
Royal Canadian club's squadron, and be-

Carey Smith, of New York, designed her,
and during tho three years of her career
she has taken part in all the principal
races without being defeated once. One
of her notable victories was over the fa

The Merle belongs to the same fleet. She
was designed by Edward Burgess, the
famous naval architect, and belongs to
Dugald MacMurchy, of Toronto. List

won five Orst plac5 in the five regattas,

The "Bombay oyster" isn't an oyster

an egg dropped unbroken into a tumbler,

with pepper and salt.
It is consumed always before break
