TWO MALICIOUS
MEN DID DAMAGE
Wornt* and Her Blind Hatband
Were Injured When Hone
Ran Away Last Sunday
!t~ I3 hard to imagine that men could
be BO malicious as to cause a woman
and her blind husband serious Injury
but such is the case, according to
the story told by Mrs. Sturgeon Tucker
at the Anderson County Hospital. Mrs.
Tucker.is in the hospital, suffering
with a broken ?boulder bone, and her
blind husband is badly bruised as the
result of a run' away Sunday. The
animal driven by Mrs. Tucker took
fright at two motor cycles and Mrs.
Tucket was too weak to regain con
trol of the panic-stricken horse.
According to Mrs. Tucker's version
of the affair she and.her husband left
their home at Fair Play to drive
through this city to relatives living
?ts the lower part of the county. Her
husband is totally blind and she was
driving the horse. They came from a
by-road near J. S. Fowler's residence
when two motor cycles came into view.
Mrs. Tucker says that both of the
meu steered their machines in the
direction cf the buggy and seemed" to
be trying to come as close as possible
without striking the.buggy. The horse
took freight and she waa unable to
hold bim and when he ran she an! J
her husband were thrown from thc
buggy. She -says that neither ot the
riders stepped .tiielr machines or made
any effort to assist her after she was
injured.
Mrs. Tucker was brought to the city
and she and her husband were given
medical attention by Dr. C. F. ROBB.
The injured woman was. then carried
to the Anderson hospital and the brok
en bone was set while the husband re
turned to his home at Fair Play.
.The officers are attempting to find
some trace^pf the mbtor cycle riders.

WILSON VOICES TM BUTE TO
THOSE WHO F?LL AT
VERA CRUZ
ANY EYES DIMMED
Great Crowd* Tom Out at New
York and Follow Coffin* to
Navy Yard
(By Associated Press.)
New York, May ll.-New York Join
ed toe nation today in memorializing,
with simple dignity, the heroism of the
uineteen bluejackets and marinea, who
gave their lives at Voca Crus. As the
most impressive funeral pageant since
the Bpaniuh war started, from the Bat
tery to the Brooklyn navy yard, it
was as if the whole population of the
city was there.
Great Crowds Attend.
The people were still, standing
shoulder to shoulder in a community
of grief. It was a spectacle of a city
?..traagciv transngured and lifted out
of itself.
In the Une of mourners that follow
ed the artillery caissons bearing the
dead were the chiefs of state and city
government, and many more distin
guished men ot nearly every calling;
but every eye in th? throngs that
lined the way, turned first to the car
riage where. President Wliion rode
close behind the lase funeral car. The
president came'from. Washington-dur
ing the' night and stood as the ma
rines ' fired ' their parting volleys, at
the Brooklyn navy yard, and the navy
bugler Hounded "taps." that proclaim
ed thc end of the ceremeuy.
Relatives o'Deg.? i'?r?"??.
On the stand with the president at
the ' navy yard were relatives of the
dead sailors and marine*,
sisters and wives, but in ali the
of mourners, none seemed moi* ?
touched- by^febo spirit <ii
WMBHIH^HL word -vrzi ?
tWl^flBPRtoTfht for their/enb^tryr??
honor at vera Crus'.
Abd to the pre?.dent was left thc
privilege of voicing the nation's grief
and tbs nation's belief that those who
died in the performance of duty had
done for their country a service not
Xo be ?t?i-red by their Individual
deeds.
"The feeling that is uppermost "h?
said," 1* one of profound grief, and
yet- there ie nixed -sith that grief a
profound pride that they should have
gone as they did, sud if I 'may say
it out of my heart, a touch of envy
of those who were Dermitted so quiet
ly, ec n*ely. to ~do"their duty.'*
Wilson ?kow? Emotion.
The) head oJt\ tim nation, l*x>ked
out over the thousands massed about
the coffins on the parade ground and
his voice Shook with emotion as he
declared his creed.
"We have gone down to Mexico," he
said, "to ?erv* mankind if we can find
a way. We do not want to fight the
Mexican*; we want to serve the Mex
icans.''
There tran a wistful note in his
voice, as he added: "I never was un
der fir* bul I fancy there are some
things Just as hatd to do as to go un
der Arr. I fancy lt ls Just sa hard to
do your duty when men are sneering
at you as tirhen they are shooting at
you. When thu/ shoot at you, they can
only take your life; when they sneer
at you, they -can wound your heart."
From a bird's eye view, the multi
tude along the route of tbe funeral
cortge presented tbe picture of a
vast human stream connecting two
arms ot th? sea. Muffled voices, soft
s po.en commands by military officers,
the melancholy tolling of the Trinity
Church bell .emphasized a bush that
had fallen over a city of noise.
The dead t"-ere landed by the tugs
Trifilo. and Correction . early In the
morning end lay in state on Battery
Park Plana for more than an hour
before the procession started. There
were seventeen coffins.
Each caisson was drawn by four
horses, astride two of which rod?
members of the First and Second -reg
Imeuta of the field, artillery. There waa
lu addition one mounted police escort
for each caisson. Fdur sailors on each
side acted as pall bearers, These
men. t-sned from recent -Service In
Vera Crus?, had been called to New
York, especially for the ser ice . in
memory ?f their ???u ?uiurtt?es.
Directly behind the caissons, which
stretched out their single; file, were
?n.j ?Kir?cEos of me President, Go ver
