The British dreadnought Audacious, one
of the newest and most powerful ships in
the English navy, has been sunk oft the
coast of Ireland, presumably by a mine.
If n photograph received today by1 the
International News Service Is nuthentlc.
The picture shows the Audacious half
submerged. Tho photograph also shows the port
deck of the dreadnought crowded with
sailors, while about her were several
small boats from the liner Olympic and
two torpedoboats that had been called
to the scene to aid in the rescue work.
The picture of the stricken dreadnought
shows her listing to starboard, with the
water almost to her forward deck and her
Hern high In tho air. The cssel ap

News of the disaster to the Audacious
Is told In a story by mall from London.
"For almost a week Fleet street has
known that H. SI. S. Audacious had been
In collision with a mine, off the north
coast of Ireland. Later the news was
spread about that tho survivors from the
dreadnought had been picked Up by tho
White Star liner Olympic. The Olympic
meantime was reported to have put In

morning (November 4). Announcement
had been made yesterday that the pas
sengers would arrive on a special train
today at Euston station. Newspaper
men learned that the passengers had ar
rived over various roads at tho stations
at various hours.
"Two of the passengers were located
at the Savoy Hotel. One of them donled
that he had been on the Olymplo and the
other refused to talk. It Is believed the

before the passengers were allowed to
leave the Olympic nt Belfast to keep

aster, "Charles SI. Schwab, the only pas

at Lough-Swilly, admitted today that he
had obtained this permission only on the
condition that he keep silent,
"One report of the affair Is that the
Audacious sighted and sank a Swedish
steamship laying mines off the north
coast of Ireland, The Audacious la said
then to have wirelessed the Olympic of
the danger, only a moment later herself
emphasizing It by coming tn contact with
one of the mines.
"The explosion is said to have caused
her boilers to burst, scalding JiT men,

Anihrux, a disease much dreaded, and
one usually fatal, has nguln made its ap
pearance i(i Philadelphia, and already has
caused the death of n woman. An epi
demic, according to physicians, need not
be feared. The case was first diagnosed
as foot and mouth disease.
The victim of the malady Is Miss Isabel
Agnes McFadden, 33 years old, 172J North
lOlh street. She was taken III last Wednes
day and died In agony last night. An
nouncement of her death was not made
According to Dr. Joseph Hoffman, 126
West niamoml street, JIIss JleFadden
was tho flrbt anthrax victim he has treat
ed In 20 years. He Is unnblo to learn how
sho contracted the disease.
The young woman developed first symp
toms on Wednesday when a small pimple
appeared on her nose. Nothing serious
was suspected until a day later when a
second spat developed on her mouth and
several others made their appearance on
the side of hor fuco. one In her eyo. Luter
sho suffered great pain and grow steadily
worse until death came.
Doctor Hoffman says Sllss SIcFadden
was tn no wise associated with any oc
cupation through which she was liable
to contract anthrax. The disease has Its
genesis tn a smalt bacillus usually found
In the wool of sheep and the hide of
horses and cattle. Sllss SIcFadden was
not employed In any factory and spent
most of her time at home.
He says there is 'no danger from nn

Sllss SIcFadden Is survived by her
father and mothers, a younger sister,

contracted the disease," said Dr. A, A.
Cairns, chief medlcallnspector of the
Bureau ot Health. "From what I have
learned she had not exposed herself to
the only sources of Infection known the
hides or wool ot animals who have died
of the disease."
Anthrax was described by Doctor Cairns
as a malignant pustule, much like a car
buncle. It Is a rare disease, he said.
Since 1905 Philadelphia has averaged only
from t to 10 cases a year.
"The danger of all epidemic ts remote,"
continued Doctor Cairns, "because the
disease is not transmissible from person
to pyson. The only possible way in
which a person may become infected Is
by handling the hides of catties or the

PALMER STADIUM. Princeton, N J.
The curtain rose on the annual football
classic between Yale nnd Princeton to
day with every one of the 26 entrances
to the spacious stadium feeling tho
strain of lines of ardent fans slnco noon.
In nn almost cloudless sky, the sun
shines down. It makes conditions Ideal
for the spectators, but a trifle too warm
for tho nirnored players. The breezo Is
too light to Intcrfeie with the kickers
of elthfr side.
TALK IS CONFIDENT.
Although Princeton men feel that tho
chances of tho Orange nnd Black team
aro slight, that could never be "detected
In the cheers and songs ot encouragement
bursting on the air. Tho famous loco
motlvo yell rises vigorously and in It a
note of challenge Is sent forth.
"We hnvc a team that can't bo beat,"
one of the favorite songs. Is defiant, but
tho Yale cohorts do not allow Princeton's
army to monopolize the cheering and sing
ing. Their struggle for vocal supremacy
is worth the price of admission.
Princeton smarts under the defeat a,d
ministered hist week by Harvard. Her
supporters know that their fond hones.'
lor a cnampmnsr.ip team were flhnttered.
Yale's aggregation, almost half a hun

The stands in the $300 000 stadium were
freighted with wildly enthusiastic folk.
Every seat was filled, when the referee's
whistle sent the gladiators into action.
A panoramic view of the stadium showed
a forest of pennants and streamers. The
thousands of pretty girls In their won
derful and multicolored garments defied
description by even the best describers.
The Bull-dog eleven loomped up as
giants alongside the Tigers. Yale out
weighed Princeton a trifle more than 10
pounds to a. man a bulky "edge," but
one which did not seem to disturb Prince
ton. Princeton, 'twas said, planned to
give Itself almost exclusively to an ex
hibition of the new stylo game, against
which, it was figured, the bulk of Yale
would be at a disadvantage.
DETAILS OP THE GASIE.
A mighty roar swept through the stad
ium as Captain Ballln led the Tigers on
the field Princeton won the toss and
Ballln chose to defend the north goal.
Princeton received the kick-off. Con
roy's toe sent the pigskin to Trenkman
on Princeton's S5-yaid line, where Betts
brought him down.
Drlggs punted to Tale's 34-yard tine
on the second uown.
Legore's punt rolled to Princeton's 32
yard line, where Ames fell on tho ball.
Drlggs punted Immediately to Legore,
who signaled for a fair catch. A Prince
ton forward crashed Into him and the
Tiger was penalized. It was Yale's ball
on Princeton's IS-ynru line.
A later pass, with Legore carrying
tho ball, was spectacular, but Tlbbot
flung him to earth with a vicious tackle
before he could gain.
A long forward pass grounded, and
Princeton got the ball.
After falling to gain on two line plunges,
Drlggs punted to Legore, who caught
the ball on his 22-yard line. He was
downed In his tracks.
An offside penalty advanced the ball 5
yards. Again Princeton was offside and
Yale got'a first down.
On the next play Alnesworth smashed
through Princeton's right tackle for 36
yards. Knowtes moved the ball 8 yards
nearer the goal.
Princeton men cannot forget that to
day their alma mater meets Tale for
the first time In a setting that is in
Keeping with the dignity of her athletic
traditions. It marks an epoch and from
now o'n events will be definitely dated In
Princeton history by such expressions as
"ao and so" happened two years before
we played Tale In the stadium.
The betting favors Tale to win at odds
of Z to 1. Those are the prevailing odds
and much money has been and is being
wagered that way.
For Tale there la one change In the
line-up announced previously. Scoville

whether the mines in the North Sea are
