Relatives of Mrs. Vesta Safford
Claim Heart Failure Caused
Fall from. Automobile
Henry O'Melveny Says His Niece
Was Frequently Subject
to Fainting Spells
That Mrs. Vesta Saflford, who was
Instantly killed in an automobile acci
dent early yesterday morninpr. was a
niece of Henry O'Melveny, a prominent
attorney of Los Angeles, and that I he
was subject to attacks of heart trouble
were two disclosures which followed ;m
investigation of the tragedy yesterday.
Mrs. Safford pitched from the automo
bile in which she was going home with
her husband at Seventh and Xorton
avenues and was instantly killed.
Relatives of the dead woman, con
vinced that death was caused by an
unavoidable accident, yAterday waived
an inquest. The body will be sent to
Illinois for burial.
Mrs. Safford left Levy's cafe, where
she had taken dinner with li r k«s
band, H. B. Safford, after midnight
Friday night. They started home in
their automobile and reached Seventh
and Norton avenues about 2 o'clock
Saturday morning. Suddenly Mrs, Saf
ford lurched forward in her seal and
plunged to the street. When taken to
the receiving hospital it was found
that death hud bowi Instantaneous.
The husband would not make a state
ment of the accident yesterday, hut
Mr. O'Melveny declared that beyond
doubt Mrs. Safford had been stricken
with heart, failure and fell from the
machine before her husband could save
her. He said Mrs. Safford hid long
suffered from heart trouble and hart
frequently fallen to the ground in
fainting spells.
The woman's relative?! believe the
deep wound in Mrs. Bafford'a head,
which was directly responsible for her
death, was inflicted by the tool bo*,
placed on the side of the automobile.
They declare in all probability Mrs.
Safford's head struck the sharp corner
of the tool box as she plunged to the
Coroner Hartwell said last nisrht he
was convinced the woman's death was
accidental and he could see no reason
for holding an Inquest.

Serious Charges Against Candi
dates in Webfoot State
PORTLAND, Ore., Nov. The most
bitter campaign of a decade at least
is being fought in Oregon.
The center of interest Is on the liquor
question. Thorn are three initiative
measures affecting this matter. One
is a so-called "home rule' amendment
to the state constitution granting to
municipalities com] control of the
sale of liquor. Against this re two
proposed constitutional amendments
prohibiting the manufacture sale and
possession of liquor and granting po
[ice powers which would Invest the
officials with power to search even pri
vate homes on the Blight suspicion
of the presence of liquor therein
Second to the prohibition question is
the gubernatorial contest between Jay
Bowerman, Republican, and Oswald
"West, Democrat. Through the news
papers charges of unusual .seriousness
have been bandied back and forth re
gardlnij the candidates, even their per
sonal honesty and integrity being as-
Balled daily.
The general Impression .■-■' ems to be
that nil the liquor amendments and
laws will go down to defeat—'.'home
rule" and prohibition also, but as to
the gubernatorial race, only extreme
partisans are willing to hazard even
a guess. Oregon will elect two con
gressmen, one from each of its two
districts. Willis C. Hawley and A.
W. Lafferty, Republican candidates
from the first and second districts, will
both be elected, probably by over
whelming majorities, over Robert Q.
Smith and John Manning, Democrats.
Outside of supreme court Judges, the
Republican /state ticket is practically
Don't Do It By starving It Either—l-et a
Substitute Do the Work. .
The old adage, "All work and no
play makes Jack a dull boy," applies
just as well to the I tomach, one of the
most important organs of the human
system, as it does to the man himself.
If your stomach is worn out and re
bels against being further taxed be
yond its limit, the only sensible thing
you can do is to give it a rest. Em
ploy a substitute for a short time and
see if It will not more than repay you
in results.
Stuart's Dyspepjia Tablets are a
willing and most efficient substitute.
They themselves digest every bit of
food in the stomach in Just the same
way that the stomach Itself would,
were it well. 'They contain all the es
sential elements that the gastric juice
and other digestive fluids of the stom
ach contain and actually act just the
same and do Just the same work as
the natural fluids would do, were the
stomach well and sound. They, Jhere
fore, relieve the stomach. Just as one
workman relieves another, and permit ■,
it to rest and recuperate and regain
its normal health and strength.
This "vacation" idea was suggested
by the letter of a prominent lawyer in
Chicago. Read what he says: "I was
engaged in the most momentous un
dertaking of my life in bringing about
the coalition of certain great interests
that meant much 'o me ns well as my
clients. It was no; the work of days,
but of months. I was working night
and day almost, when at a very criti
cal time my stomach went clear back
on me. The undue mental strain
brought it about ard hurried up what
would have happened later on.
"What I ate 1 had to literally force
down and that was a source of misery
as I had a sour stomach much of the
time. My head ached, 1 was sluggish
and began to lose my ambition to carry
out my undertaking. It looked pretty
gloomy for me and I confided my
plight to one of my clients. He had
been cured by Stuart's Dyspepsia Tab
lets and at once went down to a drug
store and brought a box up to the
"I had not taken a quarter of that
box before I found that they would do
all the work my stomach ever did; and
as a rest or vacation was out of the
question for me 1 determined to give
my stomach a vacation. 1 kept right
on taking the tablets tind braced up
and went ahead with my work with
renewed vigor, ate just as much as I
ever did and carried out that under
taking to a successful issue. I feel
that I have Stuart's Dyspepsia Tab
lets to thank for saving me the hand
somest fee I ever received as well as
my reputation and last but not least
my stomach."
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are for
sale by all drusgists at 50 cents a box.
Woman Who Reweds Too Soon

Performances Remarkable for

The fievanl opera company aohieved
a double triumph yesterday with two
performances, each one remarkable

The Herald has made arrangements with Messrs. Cohan &

something more rugged and forceful
than he could give, but in the part of
this old man pleading for. the love of
his son, and later repenting of his in
terruption to the happiness which had
been promised, he took the audience
by storm and received without doubt
the triumph of the afternoon. His
exquisite art, his niceties of action

Lee Streiglit, charged with the murder
of her husband, T. E. Streight at Mc-
Gregor, Tex., June 18 last, was found

will ask for a new trial.

cision. "^
