woman was probably fatally in
jured and three others seriously
hurt when 700 bargain-hunting
women-attended a special sale of
dishp'ahs at a 10-cent store here
today. Not until the police had
charged through the store could
order be restored.
Miss Ethel McDermott,20,was
picked up unconscious from the
floor and taken to the hospital,
where surgeons say she ha's three
ribs broken, a broken leg and arm
and nuenirous, cuts dnd bruises,
caused by being trampled upon
by French'and Cuban heels. Her
clothing was nearly torn from-her
body. Other women- suffered
broken arma and ribs; but all we're
able to be taken to theirhomes.
The dishpans were not forgot
ten despite the shrieks of the
wounded and demands of the po
lice for order, and all were sold
within ten minutes. -Not until'all
the-'paris were gone would the
women obey the polic"e.
. -ATTEMPTS. SUICIDE:

old, attempted suicide in Grant
park, foot of Harrison street, at

WHITE SLAVER FREED MM
Washington, July 10. Presi
dent Taft, this afternoon, broke
all precedents by giving presiden
tial pardon to "white slave" of
fender. Ordered Utah authori
ties to release May Brown, serv
ing sentence of 5 and yk years,
when she sent him poetry -that
she had' written in her cell.
Mrs. Brown, who is the mother
of a 13-year-old boy, promise'd' to
lead a better life. , The poem,
which touched Taft's "judicial
temperament," concluded wfth
these four lines:
"God gives to us forgiveness any
time the heart repents,
Then why should man hold fast,
when Godliimself relents? '
And why the waiting through the
weary years so long?
If God's decree be right, then
surely man's is wrong."
