CHILDREN DIE OS THE HOT STREETS Record Hlurh Mercury Krrpa Ambi lances and Honpitala Buajr All Uar With Victim* of the Sun's Kayii. NEW YORK. May HI. ? Insanity and death came yesterday, the third day of Intense heat. The thermometer In the afternoon showed 100 degrees at the street level. This was seven de grees hotter than the maximum on Tuesday. High above tiie street sur face. the government thermometer reg istered !)1 degrees, an advance of three degrees over the maximum of Tuesday taken at the same point and only font degrees less than the highest tempera ture ever officially recorded for the month of May. Eight deaths are re corded, while twelve men and eight women were prostrated by tl\o heat. Every hospital In the city was forced to open its wards to sufferers from heat prostration, and the ambulances were kept busy all day bringing in new vic tims. The death of the two school children in Brooklyn was especially sad. Teresa Bronnenkamp had run out to do an errand for her mother be fore school and was hurrying so as not to be late when she was stricken. A physician was summoned, but she died within a few minutes. Little Peter Murray was overcome while on bis way to school and died while he was being carried to his home. Captain Kreuscher, who was stricken in Queens borough, was a sewer in spector. His condition is serious. There was much suffering among children, especially in the tenement districts. Should there be another rise in the temperature it is more than probable that it will be necessary to close the public schools. Slight relief was afforded in the aft ernoon and evening by several light showers, but last night the temperature was still oppressive, and throughout the swarming tenement districts the suffering was very great. Frank Kelly while believed to be temporarily insane from the intense heat jumped from the roof of a house in West Thirty-seventh street and was instantly killed. Governor Was Killed In Rerenfe.

While the governor was examining it the men drew re volvers and riddled Bogdanovitch with bullets, no less than nine being lodged in his breast and spine. The governot died on the spot.

Since the strike of the Building Trades' un ion In New York there have been but few shipments of brick to New York. I. (trice Fruit Pickrra Fall. SAN JOSE. C'al., May 21.? The fruit men of San Jose were surprised when notice .reached the office of l'orter Bros., fruit packers and dealers, that the company is bankrupt and that a receiver lias been appointed for all the property. The manager here had been instructed to continue the business as usual, and it is believed that the em barrassment is only temporary. The company is one of the largest dealers in fruit in California, and its opera tions in Santa Clara county have l>eeD extensive. does not alwas mean over charge and dishonest dealings A business man who follows- this method al ways fails. Large profits are real ized only by selling the best quality at such a small margin of profit as to insure continued trade. Ten per cent, of one customer's business for a whole year is a larger profit than one hundred per cent, on an unsat isfactory sale. Consider the logic of this and you will readily see why it is our customers stick to us. Our Garden Hose at 6c, 8c, 10c per ft. We H .MtCoiick 82 SMITH ST.

SNYDER & Co. Cotton Carnival Broadly Planned! SkilMly Executed! Beyond Competition! With cotton soaring as it never soared before ; with the bulls and bears tossing and squeezing one another ; with strikes galore for higher wages and shorter hours, is it not wonderful that we should be able to organize a sale of cotton goods at such prices as are quoted in this ad-^ vertisement, and which we are able to quote on goods and gar ments of every sort through the store ? It is only another evidence of the far reaching power wielded by an organization such as this ? a power that brings us the best the markets afford at the lowest possible prices.
