According to the elder Mr. Penny, who resides at No. 8 mine a few miles west of Pratt City, he had bought an jwitomobile for his son a few days ago so that the boy could operate a taxi cab line between the mines and Ensley during vacation this summer. Yesterday afternoon father and hon started out on their initial trip in the new automobile. Something went wrong with the steering year about two miles west of Ensley, and be fore either of the occupants could get out the car plunged down a steep em bankment and overturned, burying both beneath the wreckage. Both were knocked unconscious, but the father recovered after a few min utes and began trying to get out from under the wrecked automobile which he feared would take fire at any min ute. The efforts of Mr. Penny to re lease himself cost him his wooden leg, for he wrenched the false limb off and got out. The father then by hercu lean efforts dragged his unconscious son from beneath the car before it took fire. The ambulance of Echols & Angwln was summoned and brought young Penny to an infirmary where he died yesterday morning. The elder Mr. Penny while terribly bruised is ex pected to recover. Funeral arrangements over the re mains of young Penny will be an nounced later. dzJ TRIBE 10 FORD Latter Will Be Entertained at Farewell Dinner by Officers of Church “We are losing a man and we should tell him what the folks here at home think of him before \\e goes away.” That was the tribute that Dr. H.

Light and Powe company, the Birmingham Southern rail way and the Frisco railway was delayer several hours last night by a peculiar ac cident. As a street car was proceedim toward Ensley three loose horses startei running Jfown the track In front of tli car. Between Weaver street and Thras] street there Is a culvert and one of th horses fell Into It. The other two turnei to one glde and escaped. The horse tha fell In became 'wedged and was unable t extricate himself. The three roads rut parallel at this point and consequent! all were delayed. The humane officer o the city was summoned and It require, several hours work to liberate tha la prisoned. animal. ' Jr A. i mobile. One of the young men ex 3 plained that Meyers had been struck bj s an automobile which hail gone on anc that they had picked him up and car 1 rled him to the nearest hospital. The c young men left the Infirmary without i giving their names, or stating jusl 1 where Meyers had been struck by thi “mysterious” motor car. A few min utes after reaching the Hillman hos • pital Meyers died. His only spoker - words were low whispers for water. A search of the clothes of the de j ceased revealed an Identification card It bore the name of J. H. Meyers, aged • 38 years, address, 98 Dodd street, At lanta. Oa. From other papers found r in Meyers* pockets It was gathered that , he was a railroad brakeman. His rela tives in Atlanta have been notified ol his death. • investigation in the vicinity of Ave i nue F ami Twenty-first street brought out many statements of the affair. It ! was generally stated that a few min utes after 12 o’clock yesterday morn ing that in front of a certain housf I on Twenty-first street near Avenue F, that there were sounds of quarreling j among a party of men. In the midst j of the quarrel there was heard thf crash of a bottle breaking and then there were cries of “police, police, po i lice." Following thHt came the noise ol i a passing automobile and when per sons went out to Investigate they found tiie unconscious form of Meyer* stretched in the middle of Twenty-first 1 street. L The detectives are acting on the t theory that the men who were quarrel j ,nK with Meyers knocked him down in the middle of the street and then wen! off in their automobile—first being 1 careful to run over Meyers.

Bijou Packed to See Moving Pictures of Israelites in Egypt The showing of the second section of the photo drama of “Creation,” which is being exhibited at the Bijou theatre for 30 days under the auspices of the International Bible Students’ as sociation began yesterday afternoon at 3 o’clock. The Bijou was packed to the door and several hundred people. It Is estimated, 1 were turned away. Many waited un til the intermission when an oppor • tunlty was given to occupy seats that were vacated. There will be two show ings of the pictures each day this week. ! t Next week part three will be shown. 1 Part two is even more beautiful than the first part of the pictures, dealing with the adventure and trials of the Israelites while In bondage in Egypt. One of the most striking scenes shown yesterday was "the Passover.” Moses and Aaron and the elders are shown 1 pleading with Pharaoh to let the He brews go Into Canaan. Moses Is repre sented as tall and stately with ro^ea of rich plum color. Aaron 1s dressed in clothing similar to that which is still worn by the Arabs. Next the pictures show the prepara tions for the passover at the door of each house. The blood of a lamb is poured out and the carcass taken within to be pre pared and roasted whole, and the blood sprinkled upon the door posts and upon the lintels with great solemnity. Then follow's the scene of the eating of the passover, with thanks to God that the first born of Israel is deliv ered. Next comes several thrilling scenes. There is the death of the first born of Egypt, King Pharaoh’s only son and heir. The laborer's child dies. All the first horns are present In the great temple—the Egyptian mourning. Then enter Moses. Aaron and the elders to make a final pica that the Egyptians shall release the Israelites anil not bring further divine displeasure and punishment upon themselves. This tenth plague melts the hard hearted Pharaoh and he bids them go. The next scene show's the Israelites on foot, on camels, on donkeys, with flocks and herds, old and young, de parting out of Egypt. Tt Is a thrilling, interesting scene, and all very natural. The acting is excellent and the char acters realistic, the lecturer explaining the meaning of all that is show'n so simply that both old and young may understand.
