the same as usual. The ushers lead the
way and were followed by the flower maid
ens, and they in their turn by the brides
maids. Miss I'aullne hitney, tho bride,
walked up the aislo with her father.
To the Inartlstto eye the bridal gown
probably did not appeal as strongly as did
omo of the many beautiful costumes In
the brilliant assemblage in the body of
tho church, hut to ono who could nppreci
ate the skill and exquisite tnsto of one of
Worth s oreations it was a dream of love
liness. The materinl was of tho heaviest
white satin, and the skirt fell In a long
train. It was trimmed In front with a
flounce of li.oe so delicate that It looked
like spider web, and the corsage was high.
The sleeves were puffed out from 6houlder
to elbow, and from elbow to wrist they
nlung olosely to the shape of the arm.
Around the bride's neck was a collar nt
point anglotorre, the lace falling over the
sleeves. Through the lace on the skirt
were fastened garlands of smtll roses and
empire knots. The flounre was over a
full chiffon frilling and did not lie direct
ly on the satin. A long trnln of orange
blossoms full over the waist and skirt on
the left side.
The brldosmaids Miss Kmily Vander-
bilt Moane, Miss Gertrude anderbiit,
Miss Beatrice Bend, Miss Barney, Miss
Ulmmock and Miss Killth Blnke Brown-
made a beautiful and attractive picture.
The gowns they wore were selected for
them by Miss Brown In Paris. They wore
made especially to suit the general style
and complexion of the wearers. Miss
Brown's own onstume was a paie green
moire poplin, with a perfectly plain skirt,
fastened at the left side with three silver
and pale green clasps. There were five
plaits at tho hack of the skirt, and the
bottom was edged with sable. Tho wuibt
was caught at the side with flat silver
olasps, and there were lace and sable bands
on the front. The elbow sleeves were full
and drooping and slashed with three laoe
Insertions. The collar wns one shade
deeper than the gown and of the same
material. The Klizahethau ruff of plaited
gauze and fur flared out fully four Indies
from the collar.
Mr. Almerlo Hugh Paget, who Is the

A SHOCKING TRAGEDY.
1 he Holly of XV. Krauel Found In a Cellar
With the Thrn.it Int.
Nkw Youk, Nov. ID. The dead body
of W. Krauel was found in a cellar by Eu
gene C'romellen, a plumber In the employ
of the Standard Gas company. Krauel
had a few days before rented tho Bret floor
of the two ttory building at 155:4 Hecond
avenue, and was preparing to open a
cheap restaurant there, lie wna a Ger?
uinn, about 40 years of age.
An examination of the dead man show,
ed that the murder had been a brutal and
horrible one. The left eye, entirely cut
from Its socket, lay near theoorpso'shoad.
There was a huge, ugly gash clear through
the skull across the left rye, and the
throat was cut from ear to ear.
The room In which the body was found
was a small kitchen In the rear of the
room which wna to have been used as a
restaurant. Pots and pans were scattered
about the room. The stove was overturn
ed, and the walls were spattered with
It was evident thero had been a severe
struggle before he yielded up his life.
Close beside the body were found a long
hotelier's knife and a hatohet. Both were
covered and clotted with blood.
Deputy Coroner U'ilanlon said that tilt
blow with the hatchut across the left eye
probably killed Krauel, and the murder
er cut his throat afterward to make sure
there would be nobody left to tell any
tales. Krauel had been dead for soma
time, at least 81) hours, probably longer.
The police believe that the motive for
the orlme was robliery. Krauel when last
seen, late on Friday night, had a roll of
bills in his possession. There was not a
cent found on the body nor about the
premises where the murder oocurred.
The olews as to the Identity of the as
sassin are so meager and frail that It la
more than prubable that It will be added
to the long list of mysterious murders, the
authors of which the police were never
able to discover.

Many Lives Lost.
Drtroit, Nov. 7. A gaping rent near

live story leislness block, a score dead
bodies recovered, n score of persons Injur
ed and more than that number missing,
with a certainty thnt many more dead
bodies are beneath the ruins, such Is the
result of an explosion which startled the
oity and totally wrecked iibnut a third nf
the building at the corner of turned and
Shelby streets, occupied by the Detroit
Kvening Journal and sovoral other ten
ants. Tho whole neighborhood was terri
fied by a fearful shock, caused by the ex
ploding of the boilers in the basement of
The Journal building. Plate glass win
dows across the street and somo of those
fnrther away were shattered by the oon-
cusBlon, and several persons were cut by
falling glass. At the same Instant the
Ave floors nnd roof of that section of the
building collapsed and 'ell to the base;
ment, carrying with it at least 50 persons,
whn had not the slightest warning of
their danger. The cloud of dust which
blinded tho eyes of tho amazed spectators
of the horror was quickly succeeded by
smoke from the fires which started In the
ruins. The work of reRcne wns rushed to
the utmost all day, but progress has neces
sarily been ti-v s'ow.

Aboiit 20 tenants nud employees In the
building are still missing, and there can
be no doubt that must of these are lying
dead under the debris.
The wrecked portion of the building,
which Is owned by thn Newberry estate,
was separated from the rest of the struc
ture by a fire wall. The first lloor of that
section was ocoupied by the John Davis
company, dealers in druggist's specialties,
and by The Journal mailing department.
The second, third and fourth floors were
occupied by the Davis company, W. W.
Dunlap & Co., machinists, and Hllller
bookbindery. The editorial rooms of The
Journal are on the fourth floor, but situ
ated beyond the fire wall, and the staff es
caped Injury. The Journal stereotyping
room on the fourth (lixir waa directly in
the path of the explosion and went down
In the wreck. A few had miraculous es
capee and came staggering from the ruins
after the awful shock, scarce kuuwlng
themselves what bad ImfttUeu then).
Twenty Ulrls In the Mnlldinc.
'M. Jacobs, a paper dealer, who had been
In Hllller's bindery, had Just left the
building when the crash came. He thought
there must have been 20 girls and four or
five hoys In the bindery, besides George
J. Hllller, the proprietor, of whom noth
ing has beer, sevn or heard snoe thf oo
dent. Charles Hackettwas found In the ruins
In the rear, to which approach waa had
through the alley. Befure he was removed
In the ambulance he reported there had
been four or nve girls on the floor with
him. Charles Hergert, a packer, employed
by John Davis & Co., was on the third
floor when the exploslou occurred.
"I felt the crash and was surrounded
by flying debrlp before I could realize
What happened. The vinegar barrels ami
acid carboys came down on us. I don't
know how I got out. 1 know I breathed
the fresh air after a scramble among the
ruins and knew 1 had escaped. There
were four others In the building that I
knuw of Alex Campbell, Annie Tapley,
Kittle Leoimrd and Joe Vintor, the book
keeper. I duu't know who got out alive"
From the lists of tenants and employees
secured It seems certain that 60 people In
all were In the collapsed section. There
are still 20 persons unaccounted for, and
It Is more than fair to presume that most
of them aro among the dead. At every
hour reports are received of others who
are missing and whose relatives and,
friends have been unable to find any traoe
Ofliclal Inspector and opiupatent engi
neers have examined portions of thp
wrecked boilers and prunoupued the cause
as low water, causing a superheated con
dition of the flues, which vyaa followed by
the dangerous )ojocloo of oald water.
Engineer Thompson's carelessness ts
strongly condemned. The engineer of The
Free Press states that he had previously
warned Thompson against leaving his
boilers without having any assistant tn
watch them. Some oocupnnts of the build
ing give similar testimony. Thompson In
sists that he saw both boilers ten minutes
before the explosion, and that they con
tained plenty of water and H5 pounds'
pressure of steam.
