·~···T P E FORMER MIss JCSI8.E COM .IN$ HAS ROMANCE WITH SEAT TE. YOUTH. The Settle Times tells of the sec ond elopement of Mrs. Jessie Collins. Cdochran-Party, formerly. a resident of Mlissoula as Miss Jssale M. Colllns, a daughter. or John Collins of Puttq state stook Inspector. Her first affair of th4a* kind--but the Seattle paper tplls the story very well: - 'Elopenients are quite a weakndss with Mrs. Byron Phelps Parry, who, uitill a tow weeks ago was.Mrs. ,Jegae Cochran and who started out in life as Miss Jessie Collins of MontQna. Hbr romantic marriage to the -19-year-plid son of Will H. Parry treasurer of the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific exposition,. was the second affair in the conduplmation of which love had stood impudently on one side and cackled a merry "ha' ha"' at locksmiths and stern parents. 'Thd present Mrs. Parry first glad doned the home of* Jack Collitl, a' fa Inous frontiersman and present state stock Inspector of Montana, some years ago. Just how long ago Is not certain but it was several years before hoersi-'uband appeared as the Parry son ajd' heir. lHer early years, so far as known 'here;" wore unieventful. In fact, in the next chapter of her story she does not appear at all. Soveral years ago one Cochran came to Butte front New York city., He was qgite well to' do, apparently. a man of the. world and ionslderable of a, roun4er. In Butte he married a girl lnamed Warner. and, old ' Montanans say, led her a dog's life. Tired of his teast'nopt, -she finally sued for anid ob tqlined a divorce. Jessie Obllins feppes. Some tiple afterward the city moade famous by Mary' MacLane, was startled by the news that Coqhran had eloped with pretty Jessie Collins.' The couple did not stay long in Butte, and former' Montana residents who now live jp Seat'tle, have no hesitancy ,in aesl.niing a reason. It'lay in thef&aet that Miss Collins' father's name is Jaek --not John. If one were to mention the name of John Collins. not a Mon tanan would reeognize It, but Jack Col Ilns is known frol a one end of the state to tlib other. NOw the name of John "is a p'rtoetly Inocuoue . dignified, un olitrusive'sort of a cognumen, ' whlln Jack suggests Instantly a rough aind ready, two-giun.4ort of a person. And that's jut :the sort of a description that fits Jack Colllai who is and was quite a man of note among cattle thieves. '.' Pther MaWdof Aetien. "Not that this statenment is any, sort of a reflection on Mr. Collins. Quite time contrary. To mention the name 'of Jack Collins in the, hlaring, of any Montana cow gentleman suspected of harboring a few altered brands among lhis herds Is a sure test of character. If lie listens with equanimity or plegs ure lie is honest. It his hand drops to lJis hip pocket and his nervo'us glances seek the doors and windows his record will be worth investigating. Jack.Col lins has problbly. run mqro ,cattl thiloyes out.of Montana than'any other man in its wide 'borders: He Is' de scribed as the ,sort of person who nmght be expected to act when, the gentle news Is broken to him 'that his daughter has run avway with: a . man Whose first Wife has divorced him' for cruelty. Cptsequently the Cot rans loft Butte.. '*Coclran's:marriedlife with his di' - ond wife apparently was, no -hap er than was hlls former attempt i, At'*aty rate, Jessieo confided to a'fllcid' sav oral months ag9 that she,,,too, ha'd di. vorced hin as did hWe first Wifo. On em.Ing, Tl"- " 'Young Parry and his wife. are now mlanwlere about the upper. qtretthop of the Snoqualmne ,river. They have been camping about six miles from J'olt, several miles on the other si4e of Lake Washington coming into town occasionally. Mrs, Parry-s dQecpUgid na a. pretty; attractlye little person, 'ap parently much in love with her youth ful husband, Sunday morning'the two took provisions and packs and started for the upper Snoqualnile. .

It seemed as though the passengers in the smoker-between 25 and 80 men had been caught in a sitting position and those who were not killed were penned in so by the weight over their legs that they were unable to help themselves or their neighbors in ntis. fortune. PMerful FCarnage. A few ,qen made their way out of tihe panic stricken thr6ng to the for ward end of the smoker, where the greatest damage had been none. They had no tools but they tried by unaided strength to' pull away windows and jumbled timbers. In that mass of wood and flesh, however, there was lit tle movement. The work on the rear half of the' smoker' was easier. Some of the rescuers scattered to a nearby house to telephone for help, while others ,sought to get. the injured out of the 'wreckl One maut was lying at the side of the track with his head gone.
