arms of her mother, who took her away
before her name could bo ascertained.
Collins, sha said, lived In the neighbor
hood of 15th street and Glenwood avenue,
but aha was too much wrought up to
be able to glva tha exact address.
The first to learn the good news of
rescue waa Mrs. Samuel M. Knox, who
had been prostrated by foar for her hus
band. She received a telegram from
Queenstown at 9 o'clock this morning
with the one word "safe." Mr, Knox, who
Is president of the New York Shipbuild

Lusltanla, going abroad on business. Mrs.
Knox sat through an art play In tha
Stevena School. 221 West Chelten avenue,

Ignorance of the fact that tho Lusltanla
had been torpedoed. Her daughter, Mlsa
Jean Knox, was participating In the play,
which was directed by Miss Violet Oakley,
Miss uamey received a message lemng
of the disaster early In the afternoon, but
refrained from telling Mrs. Knox, de
ciding to await confirmation of the report
rather than causa her friend possibly
needlesa anxiety. When the play was
over Miss Oakley told Mrs. Knox, who
returned weeping to her home, 310 West
Upsal street, Pelham. At hor home sha
collapsed, and a physician was summoned.
Sha spent a sleepless night, begging for
nawa and constantly talking of the dis
aster, fearing that the worst had been
learned and was being kept from her.
Early this morning word came that her
husband was amonr the survivors.

after he had a few drinks. He tried to

The sight of two brooms lying beside a
small box gave Fagen an Idea.
He dragged the box and brooms to the

the box, he used the brooms for oars,
and In fanoy rowed at a rapid rate down

launched Into an attack on all the coun

at 2d street and Glrard avenue. He was
greeted at times with cheers and aitatn
with hisses. It appears that a quantity
of liquid refreshments which he acquired
before the speech made him somewhat
inconsistent, and as a result the speaker
frequently became involved In triangular
and quadrangular arguments.
Finally, when he mixed the subject up
with the Revolution and the Spanish War,
the controversy with hi candid critics be

NEW YORK, May 8.-From eeml
panlcky conditions at the opening this

the country, tho stock market suddenly
turned strong nnd prlcss throughout tha
whole list advanced generally, losses of
as much as two, three and four points
at the beginning of the aesalon being re

above the final figures of yesterday.
The early selling soon gave way to a
brisk buying, which came from all quar

were hunting bnrgalns. This caused un
usual activity, particularly for a Saturday

Tho pace soon became so rapid that tha

to keep as near ns possible with the mar

dropped early In the day, only the last

Tho copper stocks, In which there has
been a large amount of trading recently,

In htladelphla refuse to express any opin

At tho headquarters of the German
