AMASS MILLIONS FROM $2800 FUND Four Brothers, Now Enormously . Wealthy, Hold Remarkable Reunion in East THRIFT SECRET OF SUCCESS Frank Miller, Bank President De clares Opportunities Today Are Greater Than Ever BRIDGEPORT, Conn., Aug. 25.— we were to start out today as we did, the four brothers of us, a little over fifty years ago, with $700 apiece, the chances are that we would be worth in the same given time considerably more than we are today," said Frank Miller, president of the City National bank of Bridgeport, today. Dispatches have told of the reunion of the Miller brothers—Frank, Darius, X. <;. and Charles—who, starting 'eat fifty years ago, each with $700 given to him by their father, a farmer, met a few days ago and reckoned up the unit ed results of their strivings at more than $25,000,000. 'The brothers have onu sister, Mrs. Kate Strickland of this city. "And I suppose that most of the young men who read that story," said Sir. Miller, "said to themselves: 'Yes, but that was in the good old days of easy times and great opportunities. They couldn't do it today.'' The times are easier today and the opportunities are greater than they ever were. Any young man who will live as we used to and work as we used to will succeed. "My father was a farmer. He used to ■work—work hard. When 1 was a little fellow we boys were up before daylight taking care of the stock and doing three hours' labor before mother called us in to breakfast. Then wo worked all day and till the sun went down at night. After dark we went up the lane for the cows at the pasture bars and drove them home and milked them after dark. We never heard of a ten-hour day or an eight-hour day. ONLY ON I* lIOIJDAY AI.T.OWEP "We had no holidays except the Fourth of July, and then we had only 25 cents to spend. We had a loving father, But he knew the value of money, and meant we should. Oue mother was a Falrchild, and through her we got some of the best blood in New England. In fact, both of them gave' us good blood. "Father was something more than a farmer. He was a public-spirited man and a great friend of Edwin M. Stan ton, and during the Civil War Mr. Stanton got father to do Important things for him. I went through the war with Grant—the First Connecticut heavy artillery, you know. No man can expect to succeed who doesn't do his duty by his country. Well, in 1864, when We were right down on tho firing line and things were still interesting, who should show up in camp one day but father. He had been to see Mr. Lincoln and had got my discharge pa per from him. " 'Frank,' he said, 'this war will be over next year and I want you to come homo. Your mother wants you. Since you enlisted, do you know* she has nev er allowed me to lock the door of the house at night for fear you would com.! home and find it locked? She has nover gone to bod at night without going down on her knees, C 0..1 bless her, and prayed that you would be a man in the face of the enemy. She Ins never got up In the morning without stealing into your room to see it by any chance you had come home in tho night.' It was the hardest situation that was ever put up to a man, but I staid, and sure enough, when I got home 1 found the house unlocked and my room waiting for mo as I had left it when 1 went away. That was the sort of a mother we used to have, and I guess that our American girls today make just as good mothers. ALL HAVE BEEN THRIFTY "All my brothers have been thrifty. There- is Darius up in New Britain, He is worth a great deal of money and he has made it all himself. But he still runs his store up there Just as he did in 1860. A woman goes in and the same clerk sells her a spool of silk and a carpet. I tell him that he is losing money by not getting modern, but he says that ho can't see it, and hates to change. . , ■ p "Darius used to bo a great friend of .1. P; Morgan's father, who used to go up and consult him about business. ii" always took Darius' advice. He is like my father's father—hard-headed and practical and kindly. "We have always fought shy of poll tics. Never had time to s.i into that sort of thing. Some people have a talent for ii. and better let 'em do it. My advice is to stick to straight busi ness This country is all right, only we have too many politicians and too much polities. Things move fast now. Peonle complain about the country and say" it is going to the dogs. It Isn't. The country is betted that it ever was." URGE BILL TO PROTECT THE LIVES OF OFFICERS Favor Death Penalty for Attacks on Public Servants DES MOINES, lowa, Aug. 25.— proposal of John B. Sullivan of this city, Republican nominee for the state senate, to Introduce this winter a bill making punishable by .Lath or life Imprisonment assault with Intent to kill a public officer is meeting with general commendation. Mr. Sullivan has the promise of loyal support from various sources in his efforts to get this meat adopted. While no attempted assassinations of public officers have been attempted in lowa, the recent attempt to slay Mayor Ctaynor is looked upon as an example ol what might happen, and the weakness of the lowa law Is not condoned. It is believed by the press through out the state that an attempt to kill a public servant should be held moro serious than an attempt to kill a private individual, not on the ground that there Is any difference in the value of the lives, but that the man who tries to kill an officer is striking a blow at organized society. The present law mako stbe maximum punishment thirty years' indeterminate imprisonment. - ■ - TWO KILLED BY CaW.IN SPOKANE, Aug. 25.—Clinton Blair and George Adams were crushed to death and Charles Nlckols was fatally Injured by a cave-In of rock and dirt .it the East Spragu« avenue 1111 to night x . 3':.\. — — |lADfiF^DrPADTMnffSODFWFST()F.CHICAGQ ========= = i — ' 1 You will like to lunch In our /\/? f\ A A Do you know Just why it is " " ~~ __. ~~\ | There's Room A Plenty Here Cafe, if you prefer good food, t[ IJ _m^—*.mL^m^ [fmA . . va/V/A\alo «*-"—« Table X}P. . ff^ A fl I here s Koom A-rlenty tiere PTOP^y cooked and perfectly j^fTXXviGti \ vWT/JX^A Advanco credlt Account? if ldUie 1A .

Then we glanced up the canyon. The Italians had seen the flames coming, too. Some of them were running around wildly, trying to climb the banks of the canyon, They could met go up because of the fire there. Most of them were gathered in the center. "We veiled to them to join us where there was water, but the blast of the fire and the draught silenced them. Most of them were gathered In a group. Several fell to their knees and we could make- out some of their words as they shrieked. "Then the lower flames licked up the canyon and we drew the wet blankets over our faces We remained covered for fifteen minutes while the flames were licking above us. Tho fire dried our blankets almost in an instant, an.l it grew so warm that we were afraid we were lost, too, for we feared that our clothing would catch fire. Then the lire died down where we were. It had burned Itself out. We lifted our blankets and looked at the place where the Italians had been. We saw noth ing but a heap of charred flesh there. The fire was racing up tho mountain Sid.-. "It was too much for us. We left without attempting to get any money for our work, tramped Into Bake Point and caught a freight train for Spokane."

The officials also will endeavor to ascertain whether the Oregon militia is to bo utilized in fighting the fires. CONQUERING FLAMES IN THE TAHOE RESERVE Towns of Damascus and Red Point Out of Danger AUBURN, Cal., Aug. 25.— fire in the Tahoe national forest reserve will be conquered within forty-eight hours unless a strong wind should arise to fan the flames. The troops and hundreds of citizens now at the scene are making rapid progress by digging trenches and back-filing. The old towns of Damascus and Bed Point, which were again threatened yesterday afternoon, are now out of danger, the fire fighters having made a successful stand last night. The fires in the vicinity of Forest Hill, which destroyed the buildings of the Hidden Treasure and Whisky mines, causing a loss of $50,000, were controlled > last night and the towns of Bullion and Westville saved. While this flre has been stopped on three sides, it is spreading toward the Bed Point and Pioneer mines and may reach Humbug canyon and French meadows.

YALE FORESTRY SCHOOL GRADUATES IN SERVICE NEW HAVEN, Conn., Aug. 25.—The receipt of the details of the loss of life among the forest rangers of Montana and Idaho is adding to the anxiety of many families in this state, especially in those having sons who entered the forestry service after graduating from ( the Yale forest school.

Both sides of the track were on fire, and the passengers had to lie down on the floor of the cars. Marshall was badly blistered.

Crouching on Boarder's Chest Stifles Him NEW YOBK, Aug. 25.—A pet cat be longing to Mrs. Minnie Herrmann of 148 Guernsey street, Brooklyn, nearly caused the death of Samuel Bablno wltsh, a boarder, early yesterday morning.

The animal lay directly over his heart, and Its face was resting close to his chin. When Rabinowitsh did not appear at breakfast Mrs. Herrmann went to his room. She chased the cat from the bed, and, failmg In her efforts to arouse Rabinowitsh, called police head- quarters. Dr. Cohn of the Eastern District hos pital worked over the man for nearly half an hour before he could restore him to consciousness. The physician said that the man's condition was due to having Inhaled the Impure breath at the cat for several hours, It having affected the heart and liver. The weight of the cat, directly over the man's heart, he said, had also tended to check respiration and circulation. JOHNSON INDORSED BY SACRAMENTO CONVENTION SACRAMENTO, Aug. 25.—The Be publlcan county convention held here tonight was a tame affair compared with previous thrilling gatherings.

C, Aug. 25.— The decision by Mr. MacVeach, sec retary of the treasury, that "wearing apparel, including jewelry, taken abroad by Americans and repaired or remodeled shall be subject to duty on return only on the value of the re pairs Is likely to cause a little trouble for the treasury officials before it is straightened out. A letter was re ceived from a lawyer In Chicago ask ing to be allowed a rebate on rings belonging to his wife which were re set abroad. In his letter the lawyer states that the New York customs officials Insisted that he pay the duty. He did so under protest. Now he wants the matter re adjusted so that he shall bo charged only on the value of resetting. The question that is bothering the treasury department is whether or not the recent ruling of Secretary Mac- Veagh Is retroactive, If this Is the final settlement of the matter a lot of money will have to be paid back by Uncle Sam to persons who are in the same fix as the Chicago lawyer. In no case, it is understood, is there any possibility of the ruling being made to extend further back -than the be ginning of the operation o£ the new tariff law, August 5, l'.iOO. It is not very probable that it will be regarded as retroactive at' all. AGED WOMAN ARGUES HER OWN CASE IN COURT ATLANTA, Ga., Aim. 25.—Mrs. W. H. Felton, despite her 75 years and white hair, made a brilliant Portia to day when she appeared before the state railroad commission to argue, single handed in opposition to the briefs of fifteen corporation attorneys.

She advocated the replacing of a switch which the Louisville & Nash ville railroad had removed at Felrtmla, Ga. With almost the case of a main tenance of way man she discussed the intricacies of siding rights, tapping ore lands and railroad claims. She declared that lt was unfair for the railroad to remove the switch after receiving freo from the Felton estate $2000 worth of right of way. She cross examined the attorney who made the closing argument for the railroad and who argued that the switch had not paid for Its keeping. ' i When the case was finished Mrs. Fel ton oxnla.imed: v "Well, think of a woman 75 years old going before a commission against fif teen lawyers of a railroad company. And I believe I've whipped them." The commission reserved decision. PROVIDING FOR CONTINGENCIES Cyclist—lf you'll look after my bi cycle for a few minutes I'll give you 20 pfennigs when I come back.

FAIL TO CONQUER OUTLAW BRONCOS Cheyenne Frontier Celebration Witnesses 'Pilings' of Crack Riders (Associated Press) CHEYENNE, Wyo., Aug. 25.—The worst horses seen hero at a frontier celebration in years weeded out tho contestants In the world's bronco bust ing championship today. Four riders were, thrown, and one Verne Elliott— was severely injured. The wholesale piling of thn crack rid ers of the west is a thing unprecedent ed in the championship contest, where tho contest Is usually decided on tho finest points of graceful and certain horsemanship, and where "riding on his spurs" or "pulling leather" Is sufficient to disqualify a contestant. A buffalo yearling upheld the honor, of his species by throwing all who at tempted to rldo him, and many who at tempted to sit on a wild steer failed. Helen Bowen fell from her horse In the woman's relay race but was not seriously hurt. A 3-year-old steer, fresh from the northern ranges, deeply resented the advances of a moving picture operator from New York and made a wild rush for the operator, who beat the steer to the fence by inches. The event of the day was the wild horse race, with twenty entries. None of the horses had been backed before, and several created excitement by dashing through the fence into the stands.
