The accident happened at 11:30 o'clocR. 'Miss Martha lived until 11 o'clock last night, regaining conscious ness some little time before. Her sis ter passed away a short-time after she did. The older girl was so badly burned that there was absolutely no hope for her recovery. Her sister was badly burned about the arms and legs, but it was first thought that she would re cover. It is believed her death was caused by inhaling flames and smoke. The two girls were alone in the kitchen when the explosion occurred. When assistance arrived, the room was' filled with smoke and the girls were lying unconscious on the floor. The older girl's clothing had been en tirely burned away, and -her flesh was literally cooked. The parents are not very well-to-do, and they are grief-stricken over the sudden taking away of two of their children. The accident is one of the saddest that has liapened in that sec tion of the state, and friends and neighbors are offering the parents as sistance. Aged Woman Burned.

Wilson still well In the lead of rivals and -still going strong, ,B the situation in the great' battle for the presidency, aa Indicated by the New York Herald's impartial, nation-wide canvass twenty-two days before election. Conditions hav« changed but slight ly since a week ago. If test ballots and reports of trained political ob servers are to be accepted as an in i* SSV' Wilson is .easily the favor ite. The bull moose movement has, to all appearances, touched its high est point. Best indications obtainable by the Herald at this time, however, are that the bull moose nominee is running second, and the president third, with a chance in some states, if the present growth of his move ment continues, to overtake his near est rival. Wilson Keeps First Place. Test ballots taken in states both east and west of the Mississippi con tinue almost without exception to place Gov. Wilson first, with the president third in the race. Friends of the president and some of bis campaign managers declare, however, that /he tide toward the president has sA it. They point to a drift to him In Pennsylvania. They say that in nearly every part of the country republicans who ten days ago we threatening to vote for Gov. Wilson to "save the country from the bull moose" are now streaming back Into the Taft camp, fully believing that the president has a good chance of being elected. Evidences of this were found In »?me sections of the country, notably New York. Connecticut, New Jersey and Oregon. In other sections the reporters found evidences of a 'growth to the drift. from Taft to Wilson to defeat the bull moose candidate. Unrest Among Voters. Democrats are satisfied that noth ing can prevent the'election of Gov. Wilson. The campaign managers de clare that they will carry nearly every state in the country. 'It is, however, too early to predict what story the millions of ballos will tell on Novem ber 5. Cross-currents are at work all over the country, and there seems to be a feeling of unrest among voters in many communities, which may bring about a marked change in con ditions between now and election day. The Herald makes no prophecy based on straw ballots. It presents the fig ures for what they are worth. It is a notable fact, however, in the pres ent campaign that the reports of,spe cial correspondents continue almost without exception to bear out in a general way the story told by the straw votes. Up to the present time the Herald has taken 154.771 test votes. It has made every possible effort to have them bona flde. It is 'a fair assurap tlpn that some of them have been filled out by Jokers, that some have been deposited by persons with a purpose to serve, but in every case the canvassers have asked the recipi ents of the ballots to indicate their true attitude toward the national con test. Bull Moose Runs Second. Of the 154,771 votes cast Gov. Wil son has received 6S.168, the bull moose nominee 46.316, President Taft 33,759. and Debs 9.528. Of a total of 39,861 votes taken in the great battle ground of the middle west the president received 8,081. Gov. Wilson 15.683, and the bull moose candidate 12.235. These votes were cast in the states of Ohio. Illinois. Indiana. Michigan. Wisconsin, Minne sota and Iowa. In Ohio the president has gained, but Gov. Wilson appears to be easily in the lead. The vote of the republicans Is apparently to be split about In twain. Ih Illinois the bull moose continues to be In the lead, but Gov. Wilson 1b pressing him hard. The president is making gains in Chicago, but apparently Is far be hind the other two nominees. In Indiana Gov. Wilson appears cer tain to carry the state, barring unseen developments. In Michigan Gov. Wil son is gaining on. the bull moose canMM didate, with the president running third. Wisconsin is leaning strongly toward New Jersey's governor, and Minnesota seems certain for him, with the president and the bull moos er running neck and neck for second place. Iowa promises to go for Wil son. Republicans there are afraid that the president cannot be elected, and rather than risk the possibility of having the bull m'ooser in the white house they ire threatening to swing in great numbers to Gov. Wil son. CSiangea Noted In the East. There seems llttlo doubt that the president has. made progress in vari ous sections of New York state an.l in parts of New England. In Rhode Island, Connecticut, and sections of Massachusetts, where the bull moose sentiment has been very strong, many manufacturers and business men are declaring openly for the president, on the theory that they do not want the tariff interfered with. This la ap parently having considerable effect upon employes of some Institutions which would be injuriously affected by any disturbance of the tariff sys tem. In some parts of the country the republicans have Injected new life into their campaign. They are not as pes simistic and listless as they were a short time ago. In New York atate. for instance, the leaders have started a real campaign for the president They are roused to keenest activity by the nomination of a popular favor ite, Job E. Hedges, for governor, and they are making a real campaign. Some of them believe they will win. Others say they see no possibility of victory In the Empire state. New Jersey remains friendly to her gover nor. While the president haa appar ently gained ground there and to still gaining, the lead of Gov. Wilson is seemingly too great to be overcome. Pennsylvania republicans feel reason ably confident of victory. Test bal lots and personal inquiries In the Keystone state Indicate a close con test there. Gov. Wilson leads at the present time, with the president run ning second. The straightening out of the tangle over the electors In Pennsylvania has given new hope to the Taft men, and they are working desperately for victors-. Wilson's Lead In States. Of thirty states In which test bal lots have been taken Gov. Wilson has twenty-three states to his credit. The bull mooser stood first in five, Con- Id ah W as in to a Michigan. The president led in two, Utah and Wyoming. The only change from last week is that the president gained Wyoming, having had but one state, Utah, in the last-review. In these thirty states the bull moose candidate runs second in seven teen, Gov. Wilson In seven, and the president in six.

IN tow Will Assist in Raising Bal ance of Money for Battle ship Silver Service. With about f3,000 lacking in the battleship North Dakota silver service fund, there is a movement on foot among the traveling men of the state to secure the needed money before Governor John Burke retires from of fice. About 7,200 have been paid In to the fund, but practically $3,000 is still needed before the silver service can be secured. During the past few days, the trav eling men have started a movement to assist in raising the balance of the money and a number of them are planning active campaigns. Secretary B. F. Brockho: of the sil ver service commission stated this aft ernoon that the traveling men had of fered to assist, and he will give them the proper credentials, so that the peo ple of the state will know that every thing is being done properly when they ask for money.

Chicago, Oct 17.—Six phystciani, who made the'most extended survey of Colonel Roosevelt's wound that has been attempted since his arrival at Mercy hospital, this morning found his condition as near normal as that of a wounded man can be, and renewed the assurance that there was no longer any cause for worry. It was also positively announced that Roosevelt would not leave the hospital, at least until after Sunday. The physicians present were Drs. John B. Murphy, Arthur Dean Bevan, John F.

The bulletin said: "Pulse, 72 temperatur*. 9S.3 res piration, 18 all night. Wound dressed looks well some oozing., Examination of lungs by Dr. Alexander Lambert shows lungs in good condition. Gen eral condition splendid. Case prog ressing favorable and unless some complications occur the bullet will not be removed at present." The bulletin was timed 9:05 a. m. Colonel Roosevelt felt so much bet ter today that he began planning for a continuation of hlB Once during the night Mrs. Roose velt visited her husband. She occupies an adjoining room and was awakened by the nurse as she passed in to take the clinical record. She remained on ly a short time as the colonel assured her he was "feeling fine." The colonel's breakfaat. as usual, consisted of bacon, soft boiled eggs, buttered toast and a pot of tea. Mrs. Roosevelt joined him in this. Dr. Lambert, the family physician, explained that there was no signifi cance in the fact that the physicians' bulletin said the bullet would not be removed "at- present." "You see," he said, "when you talk of the future you must of necessity be indefinite. To illustrate: Supposing sepsis were to set in after we said the bullet would not be. removed. It might make itself clear, sufficient to attract our attention In a single hour, and then previous assertion would ap pear either misleading or misinform ing. So we say the bullet will not be taken out. Now it depends on two things, whether it will be removed. One is the trouble that might arise. The other is if the colonel would rather carry the 'souvenir* in his pock et or in his chest." Bullet Not Poisoned. Milwaukee. Oct. 16.—Alt. fear that the bullet which hit Colonel Roose velt when shot by John Schrank on Monday night was Innoeulated with poison, was dispelled today, when Dr. Sommer of Marquette University, notified District Attorney Seabel that no trace of poison was found on the empty shell or upon other bullets found in the revolver. The bullets were subjected to a critical test by a chemist as a precautionary measure against the possibility of poison. Doctors to Examine Schrank. To satisfy himself of Schrank's san ity, Seabel has engaged three alien ists to examine Schrank. To prevent being hampered, the work will be kept a secret for the present. At the county Jail it was said that no physi cians had been there to interview the prisoner today. Each physician will make his own examination independ ently of the others. Schrank spent most of today in writing. Letters found on the prisoner indicate a con dition of mind known to alienists as paranoia, a mental disease suffered by the slayers of Garfield. McKlnley. Mayor Harrison of Chicago, and Har dy Thaw. "The bullet ranged Inward and up. after it struck' the colonel beside the nipple on the right breast," said Dr. Terrell. "Its course was probably affected by the objects through which it passed. The radioeraph don't show its exact shape at present." It is indicated that the bullet is lodged about four inches below the skin, and in reaching the position made a slanting wound from six to seven inches long. Schrank Satisfied. Milwaukee. Oct. 17.—Why shouldn't I sleep well there's nothing bothering my conscience." This was the remark of John Schrank, the man who fired a 38-cali bre bullet into Colonel Roosevelt's breast in Milwaukee Monday night, when this morning he was asked by attendant at the county jail as to how h.e rested during the night. Schrank apparently slep through the eight hours without a break. As the turnkey ri)ade the rounds he found the prisoner resting easily and -without any indication of discomfort. The prisoner again partook of an usual breakfast, the prison fare consisting of cereal bread and coffee, and seemed to relish the repast.
