I Upon the morning of the royal function Mr. White sent a note to Mr.
i Taft. It ran in practically these words:
"I am sorry to inform you that I was unable to accomplish what you

they have been ordered sent only to persons of importance and distinction. I
inclose, however, tickets to the museum, and trust that Mrs. Taft and yourself

WRITTEN III HUSBANDS BLOOD-MRS. CHANNEL
TELLS WHY SHE WROTE WORDS ERNEST HILL
Memphis, Tenn., March 11. -The words "Ernest Hill" written in blood
on a kitchen floor will probably play an important part in the trial of Hill, under
arrest for the assassination of Lon I- Channel, near here. Mr. Channe
claims to have written two words with her finger, using the life blood of her
husband, as he lay dead. She claims to have seen Hill run from the yard after
shooting Channel, and, fearing that he might return and kill her, thus removing
the only witness to hia crime, she determined to leave behind the name of th
man reponalble for tho tragedy. After she had nerved herself for thia act she
ran to a neighbor's and gave the alarm. Hill U under arrant, bun denies the
crime, (jhannel was shot through a window while sitting at supper with hia wife
YOU HAVE A SECOND PITTSBURG
RIGHT HERE AND DON'T KNOW IT,
"You people in Western Kentucky don't realize what is ahead of you in
the coal line." said C. F. Koetzel, of Hoonvillc, Indiana, Thursday.
"You have a second Pittsburg right here and don't seem to know it. I
firmly believe that this part of Kentucky will, within a few years, duplicate the
story of the Pittsburg and the Pennsylvania coal fields.
"The Western Kentucky Coal Company Bems to be 'wise' to the possibilities.
It is marvelous the scope of their plans and their boldness in equipping
for the development of their properties. It is my belief that they are going
after some of the Government's business, such as the Panama coal contracts."
Mr. Koetzel has dropped into Henderson for a business call and a social
chat with his old-time friend and business partner, Albert Lieber, He recently
turned his attention to the manufacturer of mining machinery and has putented
an automatic hoisting cage and improved mine tiack switch.
Ills hoisting cage is being recommended by tho State mine inspector of
Indiana and is taking well. It is self-dumping, self-centering, self-releasing,
and in fact does everything automatically except to go into the rooms ard dig
It was suggested to Mr. Koetzel that it would be a good thing for him to
move his plant to Henderson to be in the center of the coal nctivity. He admitted
that he had been thinking about it, but he h.is at Hoonvillc considerable
investments and a change of locntion would mean n heavy cash outlay, Henderson
HEATH IN THE SEA -CALIFORNIA AERONAUT FALLS
FOUR THOUSAND FEET INTO PACIFIC OCEAN.
San Pedro, Cal., Mar:h 9. While hundreds watch his frantic efforts to
control a great balloon which was swiftly bearing him out over the pacific
ocean yesterday nfternoon, Lester Elkins, an amateur aeronaut, twenty years
old soared 4,000 feet into the air before he cut loose his parachute and dropptd
into the waters of the outer harbor to his death.
As the stiff wind c.irricd him out to sea, boatmen hastily left the inner
harbor in launches to rescue him, but owing to tho high wind their efforts were
As the huge bag arose it careened and was carried rapidly out over tho
water. Elkins tried desperately to guide it back to the land from swinging
from the bar below, but Boon the balloon waa far out to sea, Tho parachute
filled after he had fallen a short distance, but was caught by thu wind and carried
still further out and fell in tln dim an a mile beyond Dead Mnn's Island.
Elkins came to California a few months ago from San Antonio, Tex.,
where his mother now lives. His bodv has tint been recovud.
ANOTHER RESCUED WITH DIFFICULTY.
Long Branch, Cal., March a - Five thousand people saw John Savnge, nn
amateur nreronaut, ascend from the beach in a fierce wind which at times
threatened careen the balloon, and they watched him as he drifted over the
ocean- He did not cut loose until he was 2,000 feet high. Tho balloon, relieved
of its weight turned over and shot down into the sea. Savage, in his efforts to
land safely, swung his parachute at dangerous angles, and at timeH the
held their breath as a particularly strong breeze impelled him. Ho finally
anded in the breakers; releasing his hold on the pnrachuto, which was caught
in the tide and carried out to sea and sank before a launch could reach it.
