ing the directors of the First Church
of Cfirist Scientist fvom interfering
i Jth'the trustees of the Christian
Science Publishing Society in the dis
charge of their duties has been order
vl continued pending a hearing on the
merits .of the case. It is alleged in
the bill ht the directors of the
church since the' death of Mrs. Eddy
"have been gradually endeavoring to
assume and exercise powers with re

the directors never assumed or at
tempted to exorcise" during her life

"When .ludge Braley inquired how
much evidence there would be in the
rase. Sherman L. Whipple, counsel for
the complainants, replied that inas
much as the respondents had not yet
r.led an answer, it would be difficult
t say how many facts were in dis
1 ute. Much of the evidence to be in
troduced, Mr. Whipple thought, would
bo documentary. The issues of fact
would be narrow, ho said, but it was
doubtful if counsel could agree on the
Former Gov. John L. Bates, who
icpresented all the respondents ex
cept John V. Dittemore, said that the
question would narrow doVn to one
of law, whether the directors in the
exercise of power given them and the
trust had a right for tho beat inter
ests of the church to remove certain
persons from their offices as trustees.
Mr. Bates said that he represented the
directors of a great church evtend
Ing all over the world. The respon
dents, who were carrying out what
they believed to be the purpose of
the founder of that church, had been
enjoined, he said, without notice.
Reads Telegram.
Counsel read into the record a copy
of a telegram which he said he under
stood had been sent by the board of
trustees of the Publishing Society to
newspapers in the Uplted States and
Canada. The message asked the co
operation of the papers to prevent
the publication of "unauthorized
statements regarding the question at
issue" and added that any desired
information would be furnished by
the society. Counsel asserted that
this action by thn trustees was im
proper, as it appeared to be an at
tempt to prejudice the case in the
public mind.
The court suggested that the re
spondents might file a cross bill of
injunction if they wished.
Later Mr. Whipple remarked that
the respondents had started out to
dominate tn business not onjy of the
church but of the publishing society
connected with the church. Judge
Braley replied that ne was not deal
ing with a church controversy but
only with a question of law which
had arisen as to the Interpretation
of certain trusts.

to the Swiss government pho
poslng the annexation to Switzer

lng the -noon hour lunch. The ma
jority of the workmen and soldiers
were in the sheds and barracks when
the detonation came.
Four explosions occurred within
twenty minutes. The first wrecked
the experimental shell plant. The
fire caused by this explosion caused
four magazines and 700 loaded shells
to blow up.
A workman had melted T. N. T. in
the experimental plant and had
poured it Into a 240 millimeter shell
when It exploded. The man had just
left the building when the explosion
took place.
Fully 100 men were In the mess
hall, nearby, and all of them were
shocked and some Injured. They
dashed through the exits just as
tho roof of the building was shatter
ed by tho second explosion. The
shells lying between the first and
second magazines exploded in quick
succession, playing havoc with the
forces which were already gathering
to fight thn blaze.
Blown From Building.
One of the men who was injured
was blown from the top of a build
ing on which he was at work. His
leg was broken. All of those Injured
were treated at the hospital on the
Tbe magazines were in the southern
part of the camp, known as the trench
warfare section, near Long's Corner.
Stored In them were high explosives,
such as shells and bombs, and those
working there were mostly engaged In
shifting them In or out of the various
buildings. A rifle range, about the
breadth of two city blocks, separated
the four smaller magazines, each of
which were about 20x50 feet, from
the larger one, which is about 100 feet
long. Six nearby garages were wiped
cut completely.
Telephonic communication with the
proving grounds was cut off by the
blast. The explosions were distinctly
heard in Havrre de Grace, Aberdeen,
Belalr, Churchville and as far as "Van
Bibble, fifteen miles away.
Relatives of employes at the
grounds who live In these, towns were
nearly panic utlrcken when they
beard the explosions, and made fran
tic efforts to get into communication
with the proving grounds to inquire
about the safety of their loved ones.
But because of the crippled telephone
service they were unable to learn any
thing until this morning.

Get Dr. Edwards OKveTablets
That is the joyful cry of thousands
since Dr. Edwards produced Otive
Tablets, the substitute for calomel.
Dr. Edwards, a practicing physician
for 17 years and calomeTs old-time
enemy, discovered the formula for Olive
Tablets while treating patients for
chronic constipation and torpid livers.
Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets do not
contain calomel, but a healing; soothing
vegetable laxative.
No griping is the "keynote" of these
little sugar-coated, olive-colored tab
lets. They cause the bowels and liver to
act normally. They never force them
to unnatural action. 1
If you have a "dark brown xnooa? a
bad breath a dull, tiled feeling sick
headache torpid liver and are consti
pated, you'll find quick, sure and only
pleasant results from one or two little
Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets at bedtime.
Thousands take one or two every
night just to keep right. Try them.
