Wainwright was ready to plead guilty
and trust to the leniency of the court.
It is now believed among the officials
that he will soon change his plea to
guilty and that he is simply waiting to

When the noted prisoner faced Judge
Brooks this morning he appeared per

Minneapolis people who have rela

anxiously awaiting tidings, either in
the newspapers or by private sources,
that their people are' safe. Knowledge
that most of those who perished dwelt
in the poorer sections of the city, and
that it is impossible in the confused
state of affairs to get telegraph mes
sages into San Francisco from the out
side, or to get outside messages deliv
ered, is little consolation. They know
that their friends are hungry and
thirsty, and that they are probably
without shelter. They' may be Bick' or

Good Lumber is the kind that is straight,
free from knots and so dry that there is no
danger of warping. We select all our
lumber from the products of the largest
saw mills in the world. Every piece is
dressed ready to use. But it is the "Salzer
Driers" that account for the lumber being

Are You Making This Mistake?
The records of the Probate Court at Philadelphia disclose a
remarkable fact: Of nearly twenty-three thousand persons dying
in one year, nineteen thousand left no property whatever, while
the remaining estates averaged very low, the majority ranging from
$50.00 to 11,000.00. The lesson cf this fact is that death finds nearly
all men nearly or quite insolvent except those carrying sufficient
good life insurance.
Men generally know this and therefore the query arises. Why
do so small a proportion, even of men who are financially able,
secure the needed protection? The answer turns upon the most
universal weakness of human nature, procrastination. Those who
die uninsured or underinsured intended to protect their families
but put it off. If the reader of this notice makes a like failure it
will probably be due solely to delay.
