Pbrter and L.L.Bowman all injured- Mr. Moffett Perhaps Fatally A damper was put on automobile enthusiasm yesterday morning upon reoeipt of the news that Mr. Daniel L. Porter's new oar was a total wreck just south of Harrisonburg and that Mr. W. G. Moffett, Mr. L L. Bow man and Mr. Porter were badly in jured, the former perhaps fatally. The accident occurred about 8 miles south of Harrisonburg at 12:30 Friday morning as the party was re turning to STAUNTON. Mr. Lee Jones, a chaffeur in the employ of Mr. R. D. Apperson of Lynchburg, was in charge of the machine, which he sayß was only rnnning at between fifteen and twenty miles an hour. He does not know whether the casing of the rear tire on the left wheel came off or what happened but the rear of th 9 machine skiudded sharply to the left, striking a telephone pole, snap ping it off like a match about ten feet from the grourfc., and practically breaking the machine half in two. From the shock of the impa.t, Mr. Porter who was on tha left front seat was thrown oat of the car inflicting several bad bruises and breaking two ribs. He is now in Harrrisonburg at a hotel resting as comfortably as pos sible under the circumstances. Im mediately behind Mr. Porter eat Mr. W. ti. Moffett, the popnlar represen tative of a New Market lumber con cern and well known in STAUNTON, who received the full force of tlie collision and who is now at the Au gusta Sanatorium in a criticial con dition. The car struck the post a swinging blow which demolished the entire left side from the front seat back. Mr. Moffett wasjcaught either by the front seat or the tonneau door shattering hi 9 left leg below the Knee and otherwise badly bruising and cutting him. Mr. L. L Bowman, who was seated on Mr. Moffetts right, was thrown violently out of the car, sus taining a sprained ankle,an ugly gash above the left eye and other cuts about the face and head. Mr. Lee Jones, the chauffeur, was the only oc cupant of the car who escaped unhurt. He did not so much as receive a scratch and he says felt very little jar. He picked up Mr. Porter first, thea went to Mr. Bowman's aid. Just at that time Mr. J. L Baugher, who had left Harrisonburg only a few mm utes behind the unfortunate party ar rive! in his automobile. He took the injured back to Harrison burg, summoned physicians did every thing for_them that was possible, And when it was later de cided to bring Mr. Moffett . back to STAUNTON the offer of the nse of his machine was accepted. Dr. Fire bangh of Harrisonburg attend ed the injured men and ac companied Mr. Moffett here. Mr. Baugher made the trip in record time, arriving at the Augnsta Sana torium at about three o'clock in the morning. Up to' the time he reached here, Mr. Moffett was in full possess ion of his senses and at the tima Mr. Hang!;er leached the scene of the ac cident, was the most rational member of the party in spite of the fact that he was the most painfully injured. The car was the 40-$) Palmer-Singer which has attracted so much attention here in the past few days, owing to its yellow color, powerful appearance and novel contour. It is a car that Mr. W. B. Miller, a nephew of Mr. R D. Apperson, had been using in Texas and Oklahoma for demonstrating pur poses and which, it is understood, Mr. Porter recently purchasei. The car is not too badly„damaged to be repair ed. The fro at part, containing the powerful six cylinder engine, is prac tically unhurt and the damage done to the rest of the machine is covered by insurance. Mr. Jones the chaufg feur was thoroughly familiar with the car and is considered an expert in the handling of automobiles. The general impression is, though, that the car must have been making considerably faster time than 20 miles an hour to splinter a large telephone pole half way to the top; in the manner that this pole is shattered. The accident is explains ed by Mr. C. P. Bowman, who has visited the scene, thus; In rounding a curve the car got off the pike proper and the I wheels skidded into the side ditch. i Tlie grass offered no catch for the wheels which continued to skid as a heavy wagon in crossing a street car track, thns side-swimug the post, could the wheels have caught the car would have righted and come up out of the ditch As it was, it did not. At a late hour last night Mr. Moffett'a condition reniaiuad uncbaug- I e:l ao the physicians decided not to operate. Mr. Moffett has never rallied from the shock and grave fears are entertained for his life. His sister, Miss Myra Moffett, of New Market aud brother, Mr.' J. S. Moffett of Woodstock, have reached the city in response to urgent summons as his condition is c.msiJerjd very critcal.

Mrs. Marie Grubert, widow of the late Alexander A. Grubert, died on Tuesday, July 26, 1910„at 3 p. m., af ter a brief but severe illness. Mrs. Grubert, prior to her marriage was Miss Marie Frey and was born January 24,1880, in Baden, Germany. She came to this country in 1857 when twenty-five years of age. Two years later, in 1857 she was married to Al exander A. Grubert who had come to this country a few years earlier from the same city in Germany, immedi ately after the Anstro-Prnseian War in which he fough with the German Army under William, King of Prussia who afterwards became William the First, Emperor of Germany. In 1 04, ten years after her hus band's death.she visited her old home in Germany for the first and only time after coming to America.! SheJ had purposed to make another visit to the home of her childhood soon, but this, Providence has ordered other wise. Mrs. Grubert was one of the oldest members of Christ's Luthran church of this city, having been confirmed in Germany in her childhood and hav ing connected herself with this con gregation immediately after coming to America and settling in Staunton in 1857. She was a sincere and devout Christian in whose life and character were always manifest those beautiful Christian graces ana virtues that en noble and sanctify the lives ot men and women, and mate them a bless ing to all with whom they come into contact. Mrs. Grubert leaves two children, Mrs. C. T.Hammond and Mr. William A. Grubert; and three grand child ren, Misses Marie and Christine Ham mond, and Mr. Reese 'urabert, son of Alexander A. Grubert, deceased, and a large circle of friends, surviving her. - Life on Panama Canal has had one frightful drawback—ma laria trouble—that has brought suffer ing and death to thou ands.

AND MARYLAND Addressed by Mr. Justice Lurton of the United States Supreme Court Hot Springs, Va., July 28 —Accord ed the rising vote of both the associa ions of Maryland and Virginia, Jus tic3 Horace H. Lurton, of the United States Supreme Court, today spoke before the joint associations on the topic "Which Shall it Be, a Govern ment of Law, or a Government of "Is there not a growing disposi tion," said Justice Lurton "to disre gard the limitations which we have placed upon those in authority, and a tendency to appland the doing of things which we wish done, regard less of whether lawful or unlawful If one power does things which dis please us,we are swift to inquire into his authority, but i. that so if the fiing done meets with our approval? J i "The contention that tlie obliga tion of a Constitution is to be disre garded if it stands in the way of that which is deemed of public advantage, or that a valid law under the Consti tution is to be modified so as to ac complish that which the executive ad ministering it, or a conrt called neon to enforce it, shall deem to be the pub lie advautage, is destructive of the whole theory upon which our Ameri can J Commonwealths have been foun ded to say nothing of the constitu tional relation of the Union and the States to each other. H. of late, with the great influx normOus mass of immigrant?, nn-accustoined to democratic govern ment, and wholly unfamiliar with the American constitutional idea, there has been a great increase in the num ber of those voters who object to. any restraint upon the will of the major ity, as voiced in either Congress or the State legislative assemblies, and therefore, coniider this power to an nul a law as the usurpation of tfie legislative authority". "The courts possess neither the power of taxation nor that of the sword. They are dependent upon the executive for the force needful to en force their judgements. \ Let us rather rejoice that in stand ing by the institutions which have for more that a century made us the most lawabiding people of the earth, that we are walking in the footsteps j of our fathers when we maintain in letter and spirit that division of the great functions of government which the men of Massachnssetts and the men "bf Virginia and the men of Virginia and the men o.

ESCAPE FROM POOR HOUSE Women Wander on Road at Late Hour cf Wight On Wednesday morning about 1:30, Mr. David Naille who lives about two miles from STAUNTON on the Mid dlebrook road heard a loud barking of his dogs. He heard also the cries of a woman. He dressed and went to his gate where he found an old woman who told him a woman over at the road was dying, that there was a ! vomau with her-who was sick, aud that she, the old woman, was on her way to see her fatner in Nelson County who was not expected to live. Mr.Naille went to tht road aud found matteis as he had besu told they were. He then 'phoned to Mr. Fultz' livery stable for a rig to take them to town, and also to Dr. Bradford, the city physician. Both responded and soon the women were all loaded into the wagon and sent to STAUNTON, the old woman to the county jail, a tha younger women to the city alms house. On the way to town a child was born to the younger woman which is living and in good health at the alms house. The young woman—the mother—said her name was Humphreys and it developed that all three had es caped from the county poor house and had carried with them some personal belongings, and some had clothing They were all iv most unsanitary con dition as to clothing and bo.lily com forts, shawing a condition of un cleanliness not permitted at the City Alms House and on whioh ought not Bst at any other public institn- Nothing has been learned as to ong the Humphreys woman lias in the county Poor House, nxe vas responsible for the neglect permitted her to wander about at that hoar of the night. _ .^.^ The Best Hour cf Life is when you do some great deed or dis cover some wonderful fact.
