HAD TO CRAWL YARDS FOR DRINK OF WATER Milk and Eggs Denied Patient Thought 111 With Tuber culosis; Charity Worker Surprised at Way Taxpay ers' Money Is Spent. Ernardo Ceribuoni, 38 years old, who came to this country two years ago from the north of Italy, a fine, splendid, healthy type of Italian, was taken by a friend yesterday to the Pennsylvania Hospital at Eighth and Spruce streets, Philadelphia, in all probability to die. For Ernardo is suffering from a peculiar affection of the glands of the neck and for seven weeks has lain In the county almshouse while life has slowly retreated from the twisted and tcrtured body. The condition of the man was brought to the attention of Joseph J. Parialo, a fruit dealer, of 854 South Cameron street. Charlie Philli pell I. who lives at 3 7 South Summit street, happened to speak about it one day to Joseph Parial and the latter, while no relative of the man, took it on himself to pay a visit to the almshouse. Conditions Deplorable The condition in which he beheld his suffering fellow-countryman, he says, moved him first to pity and then ot anger. So provoked was he at the conditions that he to-day swore to an affidavit before Alderman Murray, in which he tells the story of his country man's wrongs. Ernardo, who for all his suffering is no whimperer, but is looking into the face of death bravely, told him that he was ill fed at the almshouse. It is a torture for him to eat solid foods, but when he asked for soft boiled eggs he said he was denied them. And tie could get no milk, he said. What was worse, vermin crawled over him and hit him till he bled. And in this hell he lay until rescued by his friend in need. Joe Parialo. After being at the almshouse seven weeks he was taken to the hospital, and after a week there was sent hack to the almshouse. He first was brought in from I«ykens. where he worked in a mine and got sick drinking foul water, it is said. Treated Him "Ijlkc a Dog" Ceribuoni was taken to the station yesterday afternoon In an auto and put into a wheel chair and thence taken to the trainshed. "How are you?" asked a friend. "T atn sick—ver' sick." "Well, you'll be taken care of now.

The outrage is attributed by the authori ties to militant suffragettes. The chair, generally called St. Ed ward's chair, out of respect to Edward the Confessor, near whose shrine it stands, was made by order of King Edward I to hold the coronation stone or "stone of destiny" on which the ancient Scottish kings used to sit when they were crowned. It was captured by Edward I from the Scotch. The damage caused to the chair by to-day's explosion was slight. The history of the stone so far as it is known goes back to the year 850, when it was placed in the Abbey of Scone, Perthshire, by King Kenneth. It is not known whence it originally came, but a legend connected with it says it is the identical stone upon which the Biblical patriarch Jacob laid his head when he had the vision of the angels descending the ladder that reached to heaven. It is known that the Kings of Scotland tor many centuries weer crowdned while seated on it. The police quickly took possession of the Abbey affcer the outrage. The explosion occurred while Regi nald McGenna was talking on the suf fragette question in the House of Com mons. The detonation was plainly heard in the Parliament House and members of the commons and the peers flocked out into Parliament Square to ascertain what had hap pened.
