Mrs.' Ira P. Smith, crushed to
death by car atWlllowbrook.
"Antonio Montez.ki lied' by cave,
in in Pacific Electric gravel pit.
Juliana. Alrago, crushed beneath
load 'of railroad'ties; may die. .
While attempting to 'board a north
bound car of the Pacific Electric com
pany ■ at WUlowbrook station about 2
o'clock yesterday afternoon Mrs. Ira
P. Smith, who is a visitor in Los An
geles, was struck by a southbound car
and hurled under the wheels of the
car she was endeavoring to hall, which
was running on the other track.
The wheelß of ' the heavy coach
ground her to death before the motor
man could stop his car.
Mrs. Smith was the wife of Ira P."
Smith, superintendent of the Pacific
Lumber, company, with headquarters
at Scotia, Humboldt county, Cal., and
came to Los Angeles about five weeks
ago, hoping to rid herself of a heavy
cold which she had contracted. She
first "stopped at the Melrose, where she
had friends, later, however, moving to
the new Glendale sanitarium, where
she also had friends. She was not an
invalid,- but went to the sanitarium be
cause she preferred its location to liv
ing in the city. .
Some time ago she purchased a lot in
the new • WUlowbrook subdivision,
about ten miles from Los Angeles on
the Long Beach^ electric line, and yes
terday went out to see her property,
and . was starting' for. home when she
was killed.
Attempted to Cross
j She approached the tracks from the
west and so had to pasß over the west
track, on which the southbound cars
run, in order to reach the one on which
the cars coming to the city are
operated.
It is said that Mrs. Smith, Instead of
crossing the second track, which she
would have been forced to do In order
to board the cur, attempted to flag It
from between the tracks. Southbound
car No. 601, in charge of , Motorman
Hanover and Conductor Vasey, and
northbound car 602, in charge of Mo
torman O'Donnell and Conductor Todd,
meet at WUlowbrook station.
The tracks are laid through a private
right of way and the cars run at a
high rate of speed. Both motormen
saw a woman between the tracks, and
as- both cars rushed toward her she
seemed undecided whether to stay
where she was or move to one side.
It was evident that she was. watting
for the northbound car,' ao ■Motorman
O'Donnell slowed down somewhat to
give the woman a chance to step, across
the east track, but he says she moved
one way and then the other, and finally
stepped back onto the west track, Just
as ' the southbound car reached the
spot. |
The curving fender struck the woman
and hurled her body over twenty feet
and directly under the wheels of the
northbound car. The wheels of the
heavy coach horribly mangled the body.

POISON ENOUGH
TO KILL MANY
STRYCHNINE FOUND IN MRS.
STANFORD'S MEDICINE
IT CONTAINED 662 GRAINS
Estate Was Not So Large as Sup
posed, as She Had Deeded Much .
of Her Property to the
University
By Asanclntrd Pre«».
SAN FRAN(.'IBC6, March 2.— Acting
Chief of Police Splllane today received
a cable dispatch from William Henry,
high sheriff of Honolulu, saying:
"The Stanford bottle of bicarbonate
of soda contained 43 drachms, 662
grains of strychnine. An examination
of the organs Is now under way." '
Dr. W. o; Stevens, a medical expert,
today made this positive declaration:
"Six hundred and sixty-two grains of
strychnine' easily would kill 662 persons.
The maximum dose administered Is
only one-,flfteenth of a grain, while the
average ,is one-fortieth of a grain."
Louis / Falkenau, who made the
analysis of the mineral water drank
by Mrs. Stanford last January, and
which was poisoned with strychnine,
said today:
"Strychnine in bicarbonate of soda
cannot be detected easily. Soda has a
crystalline appearance and looks some
thing like strychnine. It would require
an expert to detect the presence of
strychnine, but It could be done.".
The finding of the large amount of
strychnine in the bicarbonate bottle
puzzles Mrs. . Stanford's relatives and
attorneys In this city. Mountford S.
Wilson, chief counsel for her,, and 'C.
O. Lathrop, her brother, today, declined
to make 'any statement until they had
received direct advices from Honolulu.
They held an extended conference with
D. O. Mills, but would not discuss the
matters under consideration, though It
is . Intimated that Mrs. Stanford's will
was mentioned.

To shoot up. Into the air 'beneath ; a
balloon, like a projectile, hurled by ,.a
huge cannon, is the latest scheme con
ceived .by Roy. Knabenshue, "the fa
mous sky chauffeur and captain of the
California Arrow. ...,..'.
Knabenshue feels that in . order .to
successfully, navigate the new airship.
"City of Los Angeles," ■ which is soon
to be built and which Is to be much
larger than the Arrow, he wants more
data than he has at present' on the
higher air currents. ! i
His plan is to use . a hydrogen ] gas
balloon twenty-two feef in'- diameter
and holding 5000 feet of gas. He has
just completed : the balloon and net
and thinks it will lift him at: a ter
rific rate of speed until an altitude of
übout three miles Is reached. This will
probably carry the aeronaut and
balloon completely out of sight of the
'watchers below. '„,.■
A special valve in the top of the bag
enables the operator to let . the gus
out at will and thus descend. Knaben
phue Intends to study; the .' currents

way back to the earth. ' .';';":

one next Sunday afternoon.- E./ M.
Clinton Intends to follow j the move
ments of the balloon on the ground i«
his automobile, so as to be on' hand
when Knabenshue lands, to bring the
aeronaut and balloon back to 'the city.
The sky chauffeur says that Clinton
will have his hands full, however, if
there Is any wind and that the- balloon
may travel toward all the points of
the compass before It finally lands,
as th* 1 air currents move in different
directions at various altitudes.
