Mra.l'annle Iteaglennd llernard Vutzlck,
an attendant, were getting ready to oen
the Turkish baths at 120 Itldge street for
the evening yesterday when a hot water
pipe In tho cellar broke, scalding the
proprietor's wife. She screamed and
Vutzlck went down nfter her and carried
her to the ground floor .where her husband,
Israel, took care of her. Then Yutzlck
went back to try to turn off tho water
above the break.
The cellar contained nn upright circular
boiler and a stove. The only exit Is by
means of stairs to a trap door. Yutzlck
had liardly started to work when the
boiler exploded with it noise that could
lie heard in the street. The uper part
of it blew off the base and pinned Yutzlck
with hU back against the hot stove and the
lower wrt carried away the stairs to the
trapdoor. Yulick screamed a few times
ami then was sllxut.
Policemen Dorr and Bernstein ran to
the building,!!!!! fell back from the oien
trap from which cume dense clouds of

lingerer of Truck is came running up.
He luid been on desk duty whim a small
boy told him of the accident. Gaa had
mingled with the steam by thU time and
the cellar was nearly knee deep in hot
Tngerer gut clotheslines from the yards
and twisted them, into a rope strong
enough to support him. Then lie liancled
the ends to the policemen and had them,
lower him Into the cellar. He disappeared
from view when his head got below the level
of the flo-ir and only by tho twitching
on the rs could tho policemen tell that
he was crawling around trying ,0 liberate

l.oMis, April 9. Herbert Hall Turner,
professor nf astronomy ut tixford I'nl

opinion that fixed stars are constantly
and swiftly moving- The older a star
Is, he says, the quicker It moves.
Young stars are, pcrhnps, not subject
to gravitational attraction nnd do not
acquire the properties of "matter" until
later In life. It Is suggested by the
professor that there are two kinds of
matter, what Is known as the matter
of the tellurians, which repels that
which might tie called anti-matter, so
that there Is a mutual repulsion ns

London. April 9. Frederick (). Beach,

Aiken, H. C, police warrant charging an
attempt to kill his wife, left London to
night for Paris. Sirs. Beach accompanied
him. Their departure followed n long
consultation with United States Amlws
sador Whitelaw Held in the American
Embassy and a telephone conversation
with William K. Vanderhllt. who is in
Paris. Mr. Vanderhllt was Mr. Beach'
best man at hit wedding some years ago.
Before, the conference at the cmlmssy

had expressed a determination to return
at once to America in order to answer the
accusation. He in fact had taken pre
liminary steps to engage passage for him

Although he declined to lm interviewed
Mr. Beach said over the telephone there
was "nothing Ih the charges."
Before Mr. Bench and his wife left for
Paris, it was intimated statement might
lie given out following tho conference with
Beach, with his wife, crossed tho
ocean from New York on the Cimaril liner
Mauretanla. They were booked on the
ship'a passenger list and had as fellow
voyager n number of society iersnns
from New York and elsewhere. The
Ciinard Comiwny announced here to-day
that Mr. and Mrs. Bench left the Maiire
tunin at Fishguard yesterday and enme
direct to London by the boat train. They,
however, escaped the oWrvatlon of tho
newspnHr men and went to Cluridge's.
At Scotland Yard It was said that the
London police, up to a late hour to-night,
hud not heard anything of a demand from
the United Stutos that Beach be arrested,
and that nothing was known of a warrant
having lieen issued for him.
The American Embassy said that no

had been issued for the apprehension of
Mr. Beach. Tho news agitated them
greAtly. The); had intended to remain
in London "itnt 11 Friday and then go on
to I'aris, but th news iiistet their plans.
Mr. Beach mode inquiries into the
ear lief t and quickest steamer he could
catch, and on being informed tlut he
could make the new Titanic on her maiden
trip across, started to reserve accommo
dations for himself and wife. This plan,
however, oon was abandoned and instead
Mr. Ba:h jumped into a tax leal and
started for Dorchester House, the head
quarters of the American Kmbassy,
when the conference with Ambassador
Beach then returned to ('bridge's
and called up Paris on tho telephone.
He hud a long conversation with Mr.
Vanderbilt which resulted in his deter
mination to start for Paris at once He
and his wife will lie house guests of Mr.
Vanderbilt at 10 Hue de Lcroux.
After concluding hi conVersttion with
Mr. Vanderbilt, Mr. neach reserved n
compartment on the 0 o'clock train to

In response to a telephone call Mr.
Beach said to the correspondent of TllK
St'x: "I haven't anything to say, I have
no stntement to make, at least not to
night." Then he hung up the receiver.
At Charing Cross station, where Mr
and Mrs. Beach entrained for Dover, the
former repeated to Tin: Su.v correspon
dent that he had nothing to say nt present
and ho could not say whether he would
give out i statement ?lter he had seen
Mr. Vanderbilt in Paris, He declined lo
discuss his pluns,
Mrs. Beach was dressed in black and
wore n heavy fur boa about her neck.
She was heavily veiled and wine a big
bluek picture hut. While Mr. Beach was
registering the baggage his wife called his
attention to Tin-: Sun man who was stand

tweed overcoat with large checks, a light
gray suit and wore a white cravat While
they were walking from the platform to
the train Mrs. Beach held her husband's
arm tightly ami was evidently in a state
of nervous apprehension. Beuch sought
to calm her fears.
On reaching their place in the rnilwuy
iiurrluge Mis. Beucli partly coiiceuled
herself behind her bugs and wraps. Mr.
Beach was evidently annoyed ut finding
others in the compartment, but the rail
way officials were unable to give him the
entire compartment on account of the
crowded condition of the train,
Mr Beuch's change, of plans was so
precipitate when he learned that a war

unable to obtain any money as all the

The mud woman who was lying be
sido thn body of I,ouls C. Parma, rausio
teacher, when he was found dead in the
front room on the second floor of his
home at 181 Lenox avenue on Monday,
was recognized at Bellevue Hospital yes
terday by Mrs. Louis Orny of 544 West
Eighteenth street as Clara Conner.
Shu had lived with Prof. Parma for the
last eighteen years.
She cotno from Indiana twenty years
ago, then n young woman whose talent
as a singer and pianist had led her to aeek
a career in music or on the stage. Parma,
who catno to this country from Vienna
twenty-five years ago, was then a success
ful teacher of music and she went to him.
Parma fell in love with her but she met
young I'.nglisliman and fell in love with
him, and two years after coming to New
York told Parma that she was going to
London to marry him. Parma never was
quite himself after that, according to
But it was only a few months after the
young woman had gone to London that
she wandered into his home ono day and
told him she was going to stay. As nearly
as Parma could get at it the young Eng
lisliman had deceived the girl. Her mind
was unsettled. She recognized Parma
nnd his friends, but never spoke his name.

Ijingdon was a friend of Mrs. Alma Olass,
a cousin of Miss Conners. who lives at
Chestnut street, Indianapolis. At
suggestion of Mrs. Ijingdon Parma
took Miss Conners to Indianapolis and
asked Mrs. Glass to take care of her,
agreeing to pay her $40 a month. He
also had Mrs. Olass uppolnted her guar

never heard Parma mention Miss Con-

Jacques W. landau, who was the vocal

her mentioned. He wanted to know to
