The sudden death In Henrlco county
last week of Mrs. Virginia Hobson, wife

shock to h?--r many friends.
On Wednesday morning lust Mrs. Hob

ileld district, was engaged In her domestic
duties about the house. Mi". Hobson was
in the fields at work. About 10 o'clock
Mrs. Hobson sent lier sun, the only one
In tho house at the time, out to her
husband, and then she proceeded to wash
?some lace curtains. While she was stand?
ing with her hands In the tuo she was
Ftrlcken with paralysis. , She wits ren?
dered unconscious mid tell to the floor,
where she lay In a helpless condition
until the young man cam? back irum
the trip otr the farm. Medical assistance
was at once, secured, but by 4 o'clock In
the afternoon Mrs. Hobson' was dead.
Prior to that day she had been In ex?
cellent health, but from tho stroks of
paralysis she did not rally, ?be was un?
conscious until the end.

GRAND PEN ROD DIES
Officials Believe the Fire Started from
Spontaneous Combustion?Work?
men Will De Employed In Res?
toring Burned Buildings.
(Special to The Times-Dispatch.)
NORFOLK, VA? May 23.?A conserva?
tive est?malo of the loss by lire at the
S'.T.buard Air Line shops Friday night Is
between )7B,00t) and I100.OX), covered by
Insurance In the Homo Insurance Com?
pany of Now York. The burned buildings
will be rebuilt. Temporary buildings In
which to carry on tho business of tho
company will bo erected as soon as inate
nal can bo gotten and tho ground cleared
of rubbish. The work of cleaning up has
already begun.
O' the 360 workmen thrown out of work
many will find employment In rebuilding
tho shopB, and It Is thought that none
will bo Idle longer than a few weeks, by
which time tho shops In all probability
will again bo In full running order.
SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION.
Railway officials bellovo that tho flro
originated from spontaneous combustion
among tho paints that were stored In the
shed where tho flames were discovered by
Watchman Saundors. There Is nothing
apparently to substantiate the Idea of In?
cendiarism. The revised estimate of tho
damage placed the number of cars de?
stroyed at eighteen and passenger coach?
es nine. The buildings destroyed were
tho wrecking shed, where the lire orig?
inated; tho stationary warehouse, the
paint shop, office building of tho superin?
tendent of woodwork, a large brick struc?
ture, In which were located the carpen
i ters' and cabinet-makers' shops, and a
shop In which the painting nnd finishing
of tho passenger conches was done.
Half a dozen or more coaches were de?
stroyed In this building. A small black?
smith shop, pipe fitters' and tin shop, a
large quantity of lumber nnd yard track?
age completes the list.
The departments which were not de?
stroyed were the machine shop, the main
blacksmith shop, moulding department,
general offices, power house, oil house,
library and round house. The latter was
tilled with engines.
PENROD DEAD.
Mr. Grand Penrod, of Cottage Place, an
employe of the shops, In entering a burn
leg building to secure bis tools, was ter?
ribly burned, and but for rescuers, who
pulled him through a window, would
luive been burned to death In the building.
He was taken out unconscious and sent
to the King's Daughters' Hospital, and
though every attention was paid him, he
?led this morning from tho Injuries re?
ceived.
Mr. W. B. Burpee, foreman of painters,
. wax struck by something falling In the
building nnd received a gash five Inches
lonf; on his head, which was dressed by
Dr. Hope. Others were more or less pain?
fully Injured by falling timbers and fly
ins: missiles.
The flro pumps at the shops could not
be worked on account of too close prox?
imity to the fire, and the fire plugs In the
yards could not be used by the fire en?
gines because of the fact that they were
a different size from those used on the
engine couplings.

How the Strongest Man in the Philadelphia Fire Department==-=Once
the Weakest===Qained His Strength and Health by Using
Swamp=Root, the Great Kidney and Bladder Remedy.
HERE'S the story of a man who was near death's door and was
saved by using Swamp-Root.
If he came t6 you and said : "My friend, do you suffer with kidney
trouble? Does your back ache?
Do you feel bad all over and can't
tell exactly what's the matter?
Have you tried medicines or doc?
tors without benefit? Arc you
about discouraged? Then do as
I did, and get well?Use Dr. Kil?
mer's Swamp-Root! I know it
will cure you."
If he did this would you be?
lieve him?
Wouldn't you, if you were a
sufferer, follow his advice, know?
ing that he bore living, sentient,
vital testimony to the wonderful
virtues of this great natural
remedy?
A\^TELL, that is just what
yy Hugo Hutt, strongest
man in the Philadelphia Fire De?
partment, hero of a hundred bat?
tles with the flames, is doing now
through the medium of this
newspaper.
Hugo Hutt has been con?
nected with the Philadelphia
Fire Department for the past
four years. He is stationed
at the engine house at Nine?
teenth and Callowhill Streets.
Mr. Hutt is known as the st
HUGO HTJTT, PHILADELPHIA FIREMAN.
-.?-.... ?., ,,,,_ wrongest man in the Fire Department and
has taken many prizes at athletic tournaments for his prowess in the
field of sports.
He is also an ex-sergeant of the United States Infantry, having
for several years been stationed at Fort Niobrara, Neb. Mr. Hutt
also served with the Sixth Pennsylvania Regiment during the
Spanish-American war.
HERE is the story as he gave It tr< a special representative of Philadelphia's
Great Newspaper, "The North Araer5c?ns''
"You will ??ardly believe ?I. tvlien I. tell you thero was a timo when my
body was In such a diseased Condition that my relatives and friends would
have, at no time, been surprised to learn
of my death. It was nil due to kidney
trouble, for which I could secure no re?
lief. I was under the care of my family
physician for a number of years, but he
was , unable to do nie any good. I nlso
consulted two noted specialists on kid?
ney diseases, but they wore unable to
give mo moro than temporary relief. I
had already made application to join
the army, but was turned down on ac?
count of my had physical condition.
"I was ndvised to try that greatest
of nil remedies?SWAMP-ROOT.
"I wrote to Dr. Kilmer & Co., at Bing
hamton, N. Y., for a snmple bottlo, and
its effeot upon mo was so noticeable
that I went immediately and bought a
supply from my druggist, with the re?
sult that in a comparatively short timo
' I hnd entirely recovered and became the
mnn you seo mo now.
"I served a number of years in the
army, and for the past four years I
have been connected with the Phila?
delphia Fire Department. My work, both
in the army and fighting flroa in Phila?
delphia, has been of tho most arduous,
and work that I could not do, did I not
have a strong physique.
"I do not know what the word* "Kid?
ney Trouble' ' mean now, and do not ex?
pect to. I cannot speak too highly of ,
Swamp-Root. A few bottles of this '?
great remedy did more for mo than a
dozen physicians could."
(Signed) HUGO HUTT,
2223 Vine Street, Philadelphia, Pa.
AND this is only one man's story?if the average reader of a news?
paper could be persuaded to read the thousands of such testi?
monials which come to Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, the kidney trou?
bles which now afflict humanity would be cut down 50 per cent.
For these testimonials all prove beyond a doubt that the greatest
cure for kidney, liver and bladder troubles is
Dn Kilmer's Swamp=Root
NATURE'S GREATEST AID TO THE SUFFERING.
EDITORIAL NOTICE?Swamp-Root is so remarkably successful that a special arrangement has been made by which all of our readers who have not already
tried it, may have a sample bottle sent absolutely free by mail; also a book that tells all abput it and its wonderful cures. Address Dr. Kilmer &. Co., Bingliamton,
N. Y. In writing, be sure to mention that you read this generous offer In the Richmond Times-Dispatch. The regular fifty-cent and one-dollar size bottles'are
sold by all druggists. Don't make any mistake, but remember the name, Swamp-Root?Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, and the address, Binghamton., N. Y-, on every

GREAT ENGINEERING WORK
Completion of Water Supply System for
Australian Gold Fields.
lu a report to the State Department
C?nsul O. H. Baker at Sydney says that
a remarkablo engineering work has Just
been finished for supplying water to the
Coolgardie and Kiilgoorlle districts, west?
ern Australia, where tho greatest gold
fluids'of tho world exist.
A dam 1?0 feet In height has been built
across the Helena riven- lu the Green
Mouutuin range, which Is about twenty
flvo miles northwest of Perth, and tlnu
resorvolr formed therefrom lu ?oven iuUv?.
long and will hold 4,000,000 gallons of
water. It Is intended to send from the
reservoir to Kalgoorlle, ,'12S miles away.
G,0?X>,000 gallons of fresh water dally.
The water will pass through 328 miles of
thirty-Inch pipe, and as It will ho neces?
sary to make a lift of 2.700 foot, eight
pumping stations will be established at a
cost of 1,500,000. The three towns which
are to be supplied by this reservoir are
Kalgoorlle, Boulder and Southern Cross,
which are all In the vicinity of the gold
fields anel .have a population of about
?,0,000. It "is generally hoped that the
enterprise will meet with success, and a
larger production of the precious metals
will be made possible by tho abundant
supply of water. The boldness of this
undertaking will be the better compre?
hended when It Is remembered that the
total population of the state Is hut 1M,
