A CHRISTMAS SALUTE
■..V! ' * ■ ' ■
THROWS A WHOLE CITY INTO
MOTJRNIN G ' '
4 Soore of Men at Asheville, N. C,
' - Badly Powder Burned and
Horribly Maimed
ASHEVILLE, N. C, Dec. 25.—A crowd
of 100 or more men and boys were firing
a Christmas salute from an old cannon
on the outskirts of town today, when a
can of thirty pounds of powder explod
ed in the thick of the crowd. Thirty or
forty persons were injured, but none, it
Is believed, fatally.
The cannon was fired several times,
and then Joseph Finch, an employe of
the Southern Rullway company, picked
up the powder can and began to reload
the pleoe. The gun had been swabbed,
but the moment the tiny stream of pow
der struck the heated metal there was a
flash and the powder exploded with a
report that made the earth tremble. Im
mediately there was a scene that made
sick the hearts of those who were watch
ing from a nearby house. The smoke
cleared away and showed the bodies ly
ing hero and there over the hill, with
men and boys falling and rising, only to
fall again, as they frantically rushed
about, blinded and powder burned, mad
ly trying to extinguish their flaming
Clothes. Those who were unhurt came
to the old of the unfortunate ones,
smothering the naming clothing or cut
ting the garments from their bodies. One
man was blown or rolled completely
down the high bluff, 200 feet, nearly to
the river. The people in the neghborhood
ran to the scene, and the work of giving
assistance to the injured began. Those
Injured were: Stephen Finch, Edward
Miller, John Ingle, Barton Means, Clar
ence Ledford, Vernon Sentell, Charles
Erwood, Henry Eaton, Eugene Wynne,
D. B. Bennett, Dexter Aldrleh. John
Powell, B. L. Gowan, Henry Mclntyre,
Buck Trivett, Dell, Bishop, George Eat
on, J. E. Hamilton, James Warren and
Frank Pratter.
Joseph Finch is among the more seri
ously injured, hiß nose and mouth be
ing torn out of all shape, and he will
probably be blinded.
Clarence Ledford, who stood near the
cannon when It exploded, had his hands
torn off entirely. Charles Erwood and
John Engle arc also seriously hurt, and
several others will probably lose their
•lght or be disfigured for life.

ON HIS TRACK
A Man Badly Wanted by San Diego
Officers
SAN DIEGO, Dec. 25.—A young man
of about 20 years attempted to assault
four women at different times this even
ing In the vicinity of Twelfth and D
streets. One of his victims, Mrs. M. L.
Markham, who is over 60 years old, was
severely injured. When the fellow over
took her he made an Insulting remark
and struck her in the face, knocking her
down. As she staggered to her feet,
screaming, the man struck her again
with some hard substance, and again she
fell, blood gushing from her mouth. Still
she struggled In an attempt to escape,
when her assailant threw himself upon
her, holding her down. At this instant
T. P. Noble and Dr. A. H. Hooker ap
peared on the scene, and the fellow took
to his heels.
A few minutes before the attack upon
Mrs. Markham, Mrs. Dr. Hooker met a
man, who Is believed to be Mrs. Mark
ham's assailant, at the corner of Tenth
and D streets.
"Give me what you have got," he said,
at the same time reaching for her purse,
which she carried in her hands. Al
though greally frightened, Mrs. Hooker
quickly struck him In the face and ran,
followed by the fellow.
She fortunately met a lady coming
across the street, whose appearance on
the scene caused the man to turn back.
Mrs. Hooker hurried home, and while
she was telling her husband, Dr. Hooker,
what had occurred, Mrs. Markham's
screams were heard, and the doctor ran
to her rescue.
At other times during the evening tho
same man attempted to stop a Miss Da
vidson and another lady whose name
was not learned. The police have a de
scription of the man and expect to cap
ture him. Whether his motive was rob
rey or worse docs not appear.

that the paper Is Issued without full
knowledge of the facts. So far as fed
eral action Is concerned the matter is
settled and cannot be unsettled by any
ecclesiastical decree. The situation Is
not In the slightest degree altered by the

legislation is as remote as^ever.

SANTA CLAUS'BLESSINGS REALIZED
WANTS A DEATH BOOM
EDITOR OF THE CASKET DESIRES
UNDERTAKERS TO PROSPER
Hope* For Increased Business in the
Sale of Burial Cases—Some
Orim Suggestions
The publishers of that cheerful month
ly, the Casket, have extended the
metaphorical glad hand to their thous
ands of readers and patrons, wishing
each an especially merry Christmas, and
holding out hopes for a prosperous and
happy New Year. While all this may he
the proper thing at this fc S tlve season
of the year, the fact that the Casket is
the organ of the undertakers detracts a
trifle from the enthusiasm with which
the layman outside of the trade might
concur in Its holiday greetings. A pros
perous year for the gentleman of caskets
and shrouds Is not exactly what the rest
of the folks are praying for, and most
people are glad to echo the motto of the
Casket, which is kept standing at the
head of the editorial column:
i
: WE'RE ALIVE. :
This is the way that gleeful journal be
gins its leading editorial in the issue for
December:
"The holiday season is again at hand,
and the Casket extends to Its thousands
of readers and patrons a hearty greeting
and the best wishes for a merry Christ
mas and a happy New Year. There arc
a number of reasons why those who ar»
engaged In the great calling which this
Journal represents have reason to rejoice
over the fruits of the year which has
passed."
The editor sees many reasons for re
joicing over the "fruits of the year which
has passed." That he has a delicate way
of phrasing it cannot be denied, but it is
feared that no niceties of speech will
serve to commend the sentiment to the
general public.
HOPES FOR MORE GRIM JOY
Having thus paved the way for what
he really had in mind, the editor dips
his pen still more deeply in blood cr
whatever It is undertakers use when
writing about "the fruits of the year,"
and goes on to remark:
"It has been a time when the business
conditions of our country have assumed
a much more favorable aspect. Tin
gloom and depression of the last few
years have been largely dissipated, and
while there has been no great boom the
general tendency is toward better prices
for our products and much more secure
conditions in the commercial world.
The funeral directors of the country can
not fall to participate in this general re
vival of trade, and we trust that many
who have found it difficult to barely
meet expenses will now be able to add a
handsome balance to their profit ac
count."
If there is anything which may be re
garded as the particular long suit of the
undertaker it is "dissipating gloom and
depression."
NO BOOM IN COFFIN TRADE
But when the editor has these un
pleasant commodities well dissipated,
and the bright sun of promise is shin
ing in the business sky, he remarks
plaintively:
! "While there has been no great
boom "
There Is a man who looks upon a yel
low fever epidemic as a "boom." He sees
In a cholera epidemic "much more se
cure conditions in the commercial
world." He is against boards of health
and vaccination, probably because they
Interfere with booms. He goes to fe
licitate his happy little band of under
takers on "the general revival of trade."
While that is what many people have
been shouting for, it is easy to Imagine
that few will join with the Casket In its
Joyful celebration, nor does that Journal
find a host in accord with its peroration
which announces:
"The manufacturers will have every
reason to rejoice over the revival of
trade which is bound to come."
This gives rise to the horrible sus
picion that the Casket has some inside
tips on war pestilence or famine In the
near future, else why should that jour
nal speak so hopefully of the "revival of
trade which is bound to come?" It Is
evident that the Casket, which is pub
lished at Rochester, N. V., does not
know of pr. Reilly, of carbolized rose
water, or antitoxin and other things
which the Chicago health department
boasts of, or it would not be so cock
sure about a "revival of trade." It may
bo that the Casket will yet change its
motto, and after hauling down its pres
ent slogan, "We're Alive," will nail to
the masthead:
"Down With Reilly! Long Live the
Microbe!"— Chicago Chronicle.
PRIZE FIGHT ON WHEELS
Officer Robbins Does Some Effective
Slugging
Among the numerous Christmas night
arrests which necessitated the use of
the patrol wagon was a, call to Aliso
and Alameda streets, where Manuel
Reyes was found who had looked too
often on the wine when it was red. Com
fortably ensconsed in the wagon, Driver
Stiles and Offcer Ben Robbins started
Btationward with their game. At First
and Main streets, however, Officer Mc-
Graw made a deposit' of two more
topers, and then the fun commenced.
Manuel has a decided aversion to
drunks, so he says, and it angers him to
see a man under the influence of liquor.
With commendable promptitude he im
mediately proceeded to knock the de
pravity out of his unfortunate compan
ions with a left hander in John Doe's
eye. Then the fight became free for
all. All this time the wagon was dashing
toward the station and Officer Robblnß
had an unsteady foundation to work on.
When the Jail was reached the floor of
the wagon was covered with the re
mains of three very dilapidated drunks
and Ben Robbins thanked his stars that
he wasn't a candidate for the morgue.
Is Still Alive
DENVER, Col., Dec. 25.—A special
to the News from Canon City, Col., says:
Ed Kohlman, who killed Alexander
Doull. Jr., at a resort near Denver and
who is now serving a sentence in the
penitentiary for the crime, made three
unsuccessful attempts today to commit
suicide.
Emperor William's Test
Our special correspondent In Berlin In
forms us that great discontent has been
caused in unmusical circles by a statement
of the emperor that no man who is not a
Christian can be an efficient performer in
a' German band.—London Globe.
Warring on Civil Service Reform
The present administration, especially in
the interior department, has permitted
many gross violations of the civil service
law. This has encouraged the Republican
spoilsmen to attempt the abolition of the
entire system. The people want the gov
ernment conducted on business principles,
and no political party will ever dare to
proclaim opposition to the civil service sys
tem.—Atlanta Journal.
CHRISTMAS MISDEMEANOR
Forty-Three Persons Who Were Not
Satisfied With Enough
Christmas has passed this year with a
very much better showing as to public
morality than any previous year In the
annals of the police department of this
city can show. The police blotter records
sixty-nine arrests from Christmas eve.
Friday noon, to Sunday morning at 31
oclock —thirty-nine hours. Of these forty
three are booked as plain drunks, ten for
disturbing the peace, and eight for beg
ging, the balance being cases for med
ical treatment, petty larceny and viola
tion of city ordinances. No crimes of
any serious nature have marred the
comparatively clean record of the day,
and not a single fire alarm was turned in.
Christmas Tragedies
NEW YORK, Dec. 25.—Deaths around
the Christmas tree have been a feature
of the day. Three have been reported.
Wm. Gottzeyer and Mrs. John Rice
both of this city, dropped dead last mid
night while trimming Christmas trees
for the children. The 6-year-old son of
Mr. and Mrs. Albert Field of Keyport,
N. J., pulled a lighted tree over on him
self tonight and was burned to death.
How He Won It
Buffalo Enquirer: "Where did the
Colonel get his title?" asked the im
postor.
"Won it fairly," said the crook.
"For gallant conduct?"
"Yes, drew his sword in a raffle."
The Real Sufferer
Philadelphia North American: "I see
in this account of the wedding supper
that 'the table groaned with the delica
cies of the season.' "
"Yes; but I'll bet that was nothing to
the groaning of the man of the house
when he had to pay the bill."
A Pledge Fulfilled
London Home Notes: He—When I
was young I decided to make one woman
happy.
She—Well, as you have remained a
bachelor you may certainly flatter your
self that you have done so.
Foresight
London Tid-Bits: A prudent man had
his portrait painted recently. His friends
complained to him that it was much too
old. "That's what I ordered," said he.
"It will save the expense of another
one ten years from now."
Once a Year
Brooklyn Life: "The Edgerton chil
dren have a good time Christmas."
"In what way?"
"Well, their father is a doctor, and
their mother lets them eat everything
they want."
An Omitted Particular
"These here city folks may be purty
smart In some ways," said Uncle Reuben,
"but they're away behind us Pokeberry
county people In one respect."
"What's that?" asked his nephew.
"Why, these here guieleposts you have
on your crossroads tell which directions
the streets is all right, but I notice it
never says how far it is to 'em."—Chicago

Some of the Republi.catn organs ar«
"pointing witli pride to tho increase of
wages by Jones & I.,aughlin and some of
the other iron and steel companies, the In
crease affecting about 5000 workmen. But
they do not quote as an offset against this
the big cut in wages of cotton operatives,
a cut of 10 per cent being necessary in the
wages of 28.000 New England operatives.
This makes quite a difference in the "pros
perity" showing.—St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

"When it comes to the art of

"It's very easily done." she interrupted.
"Oh. you admit that, do you?" he asked.

nothing remains for him but the ablative,
which means his taking away.—New York

Young Wives of Old Pensioners
It seems to be the opinion of congress

You Feel Fine!
After a cure by "SEVENTY-SEVEN"
you will feel fine. Not like a rag, all
played out, as if you had been drawn
through a knot hole; as you do after
other treatment; because "77" besides
curing the cold, tones up the system,
braces you up, never lets you run
down; is a tonic from start to finish.
You will appreciate this when you con
sider how debilitating a cold, and es
pecially la grippe is.
