Memphis was notified of the hold up by a terrific explosion which shook the windows in all houses near the riverfront.

Two of the robbers were riding blind baggage when the train left Memphis, members of the crew be lieve. The train had reached a point a. mile this side of Hulburt when two bandits climbed over the tender of the entire and ordered the engineer and fireman to throw up their hands. Others had taken care of the pas sengers, and other members of the crew. The fireman was told to cut loose the first two cars and to run the train back' toward Hulburt, After backing a short distance, the engine was ordered slowed up and two more men who had been gr. irding the right of way, boarded the train. Conductor Peel had attempted to send a yard engine back to Bridge Junction fo help but the bandits on the right of way made this impossible. The robbers had their explosives waiting on the levee and, stopping the train, a charge was quickly place.! under the safe. The charges failed to open the safe and grabbing up reg ' istered mail racks, .the men fled. Up to noon, today, no trace of the robbers had been found.'

A score of other workers in the yard saw the accident and rushed to Baskerville's aid. The men shovelled frantically, straining every muscle to reach the buried man. Almost a minute had passed when they un earthed one of Raskervil'e's hands, and then the ether. A rope and a windlass were procured and fastened to his hands and he was dragged out of the coal.

Berlin, Feb. 7 With all the Social ists absent. Emperor William today opened the Reichstag in person, with a plea for an increase In. Germany! land, and sea forces. The ceremony took place in the white marble hall of the Imperial Pal ace. Only 287 representatives were present, the other 110 members being Socialists. As the Emperor arose' to make his address, there was much speculation as to what his real thoughts were as he saw the great gap that had been made at the recent election. At the opening of the pre vious Reichstag, there were only 53 Socialist absentees. The Kaiser, however, made no ref erence to the defeat of the govern ment. He opened his address with a reference to the friendliness existing between Germany and all the powers. He declared that it was his purpose to promote peace both at home and abroad. In order to do this it was necessary, however, to Germany to be able at a'l times to protect her pos sessions and her national honor. To this end, the Kaiser urged his hearers that it was their duty to support loy ally a measure which would soon be placed before them for strengthening both the sea and land forces of the nation. Following the Kaiser's address, the members returned to the Reichstag, where the Social'sts were already gathered. The meeting was called to order by the o'dest member. This year, the honor fell to Albert Treger. aged 82, a member , of the People's Progressive party. After a brief session, adjournment was taken until tomorrow, when a president, vice president and other of. fleers will be chosen.

He wanted to return to work but was advised to go home. He sturdily refused the services of the ambulance and walked to his home on Seaview avenue. The accident to Baskerville was due to the fact that one of the huge heap. of coal had become undermined, but was held in place by a frozen mass at the bottom. The sunlight loosened this underpinning today. Baskerville was working about the pile and chanced to tread upon the "key stone." The result was an avalanche of coal that swept down on him and buried him completely. The expert coal shovellers of the McNeil com pany proved to be good life savers, however, and dug him out in time. LONG DISTANCE PIANO PLAYER MAKES 21 HOURS J. M.

Mr. Waterbury will not leave the piano until absolutely obliged to by exhaustion. An attend ant is with him constantly. The lat ter feeds him on Hamburger sand wiches, black coffee and sips of brandy. - As might be expected the show window of the Scnnenberg company has been surrounded by a crowd of spectators ever since Mr. Waterbury began his performance and until mid night the services of a special police man was necessary to keep the side walk clear. The tuneful sound of the piano drew the policemen and the late stragglers who were on Main ftreet from 1 o'clock until 5 this morning.

FOR AMERICAN AID Special Statement By Miss Ethel, Oldest Of The Quintet (Special from United Press.) London, Feb. 7 Today, the 100th anniversary of the birth of Charles Dickens, red geraniums, the favorite flower of the dead author, were dis played in the buttonholes of almost every Londoner. Hundreds of wreaths were placed on the novelist's tomb, in Westminister Abbey. ' Secretary Wilson, of the centenary committee, announced, today, that, by nightfall, $50,000 would probably have been con tributed in England and A.nerica for the use of the five married daugh ters of Charles Dickens, Jr.. who are in straightened circumstances. London, Feb. 7 With the specter of want driven from their door by con tributions of the English-speaking people, the five granddaughters of Charles Dickens, the immortal autXjr, today .expressed, through the United Press their sincere gratitude for aid extended to them by Americans. Today is the hundredth anniversary of "Old Boz's" birth and his eldest granddaughter, Miss Ethel Dickens prepared the following message to Americans: (BT MISS ETHEL DICKENS) (Copyrighted 1912 by the United Press) On behalf of my sisters, Mary, Cecil, Dorothy and Evelyn, and myself, I wish to express to the American peo ple my heartfelt thanks for their generous subscriptions to the Centen nary Fund. I hope that they under stand that we accept it, not as charity for there are so many other deserving cases, but rather as the payment of a debt which the Anglo-Saxons feel they owe to Grandfather for his deathless contributions to literature. The value of Grandfather's works were not fully realized during his life and because there was no way of pro tecting his writings from unscrupulous publishers be was never adequately remunerated. It was one of his fond est hopes tnat he might realize enough from his pen to leave a generous for tune to his descendants but he failed. He worked night and day and the re sult every one knows. When the Dickens Centenary" Com mittee called on us and asked for some suggestions regarding a fitting memorial to Grandfather, we felt that we were justified in. telling our condition. The members of the com mittee were deeply touched. The in stantaneous response both from Eng land and America brought tears of gratitude to our eyes many times. I understand they have raised $35,000 in England and America's contribution is expected to be almost as large. That will supply -all the money we will re quire for our needs. I do not intend to give up work. Neither will two of my sisters. Of course, the other two are In such poor health that they will probably never be able to do any thing towards supporting themselves again. Twenty years ago I started my typewriting bureau. I had no funds and it has been a hard battle. It was only through overwork that I was able to make a bare living. My sisters, too. have earned their own liV' ing by teaching and clerking. We are all pretty much worn out by the loner struggle put we nope soon to arrange for a much needed rest. Life certainly seems much bright er now. Boston, Feb. 7 Such a celebration as has never before been tendered an author was held in Boston, today, in commemoration of the 100th annlver sary of the birth of Charles Dickens.

IN VITA TIONS OUT FOR SEA SIDE BALL Invitations have been issued for the Sea Side club ball which will be held at the club house on State street. Vflt 15. This is one of tne Dig social 'events of the season and arrange ments will be made on tne usual ela borate scale. t t A BRIEF HISTORY The first Cliarter of St. John's Lodge, No. 8, was dated February 12tlv 1762, and was granted for Fairfield County by It- W. George Harrison, Provincial Grand Master of the State of New York. Eleazer Hubbell, was named in the warrant as the first Wor shipful Master, while these United States were but colonies of tluj mother country. The first Communication was held February 15th 1762, at Samuel Wakelee's house on Division street (now Park Ave nue,) situated just south of State Street. The second communication was held at the house of Richard Hubbell. The first regular Communication of St. John's odge, No. S, was held at Richard Hub bell's house on Wednesday evening, February 24th, 1762. This house stood on the road to Easton (Brooklawn avenue now called) west of the Tod and south of the present Country club's" building. Up to July 14th, 1762, eight Communications were held, when the first election of Officers toook place. Eleazer HrbbeU being chos en Mastter. The Communications seem to have been kept up with great regu larity though omissions of several months occurred during the waf of the Revolution. It is worthy of note that no allusion. Is made in the records to either the Revolutionary War or that of 1812. On December 8th, 1764, they removed to the sign of the "An chor," also In Fairfield, Conn., but later they were back on State St., Bridgeport, Conn., but the house can not be located. On June 24, 1789, they met at the house of Daniel Siblings. This old house at that time a fine residence, still stands on the southwest corner of Water and Union Streets. On January 27th, 1790, the Lodge met at the house of William; Peefc. This house stood on the north side of State street where the Public Market now stands. On December 14th, 1791, the Lodge met at the house of J. Lacey, on the south side of State street. The house stood on the ground now occupied by the Bayles brick block. On December 12th, 1792, the Lodge met at the house of I. Bin man, southwest corner of Water and Wall streets. This was in wooden building then standing at that time- and occupied as a hotel, and called "Washington Hotel." At the May session of the Grand Lodge, F. & A. M., of Connecti cut, 1809, by vote of St. John's Lodge, No. 3, was ordered to hold its future Communications within one mile of the Fairfield Court House. It is thought they met In a house then standing east of the present Court House, Fairfield, Conn. This arrangement was continued until the Annual Communication ot 1821, since which time without any action of the Grand Lodge, the permanent location of St. John's lodge No. S. has been in Bri dgeport, Conn. In 18,4 7 we find St. John's Lodge, No. S, meeting in a building rm State street, nearly opposite the A. W. Wallace Bakery, a school oc cupying a part of the building. The Lodge owned a share in the building which they sold. We find them the same year in the build ing on the southwest corner of Water and State streets and still later, in the building occupied by Pyle & Tomlinson, wholesale grocers, for several years. - .. - In 1855 the Lodge moved into the Sturdevant Block, - corner of Main and Bank streets, where they did Masonic work 40 years, mov ing into the present Temple on Broad street In 1895. s s o o I o UNCLASSIFIED FOR SALE.
