TKe doctors say that in moving he increased the dislocation— in fact, again broke his neck. LOS ANGELES, Nov. 10.— An effort to turn over in bed last night caused the almost instant death of Walter Lang worthy. Had he remained, still, as he had been ordered to do by his physicians, ha might still be living; in fact, the doc tors say .ha had an excellent chanco of ultimate recovery, despite the fact that he was suffering from a broken neck. Langworthy was a carpenter, and more than two weeks ago while shingling a house he fell and dislocated the vertebra at the joint Just above the shoulders. The pressure upon the spinal cord caused pa ralysis of. nearly the entire body, and the doctors said he would die in- a day. He asked -to be taken home to die and tbat was done. . z. , , - 1.

Harrington waited until the Union Na tional Bank opened this morning and went there to ascertain what were the circumstances of the Issuance of the pa per. Cashier Palmer's story only in creased the mysterious features and left both banker and postal official in the air. The banker had no means of knowing what the "unknown" was and could shed but little llsht on the transaction. Ha recalled the fact that the two women had bought the certificate, because he remem bered the circumstance of the refusal of the purchaser to Identify herself with the certificate. Further than that ho could say nothing. Cashier Palmer was ready to cash tha certificate as soon as Harrington pre sented It." but the superintendent was not ready to taka the coin, as he desired first to know whence, from whom, and for what reason It was sent to him. "I have had some queer experiences In my time," said Harrington, "but this Is somewhat unusual, to say the least. I do not object to the money coming my way, but when weeping women, who will not disclose their Identity, ar© tangled up In It I want to know a little something about it."

Opening the envelope. Superintendent Harrington found the certificate and nothing else. His first Impulse as he glanced at the unfolded paper and saw the inscription, "unknown," at tho top line was to tear it up and throw it away. Cashier Palmer drew out a certificate book and started to fill out tha sheet. He lnaulred In whose name he should draw the certificate of deposit. The weep ing woman answered that sha did not desire her name to appear on the paper. But the cashier insisted that this was quite an unusual method and he again requested that a name be given. Hia cus tomer repeated that she would not hava her name written on the certificate, so Cashier Palmer desisted, and noted that the certificate was drawn by "unknown. ' But the mysterious patron knew In whose favor she desired the certificate drawn and she did not hesitate when asked to sign a payee's name. It was "Charles Harrington" and so it appears on the document as Superintendent Har rington received it last evening through the United States malls. After the women left the bank that day nothing more was heard nor seen of the certificate until Harrington got an en velope addressed to him at the Oakland postofllce. It was a plain, white com mercial size envelope, the address being In a conventional and uncharacteristic hand, which might have been written by a man or a woman.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Nov. 10.— The Germanic Museum at Harvard Univer sity, proposed years ago by eminent Ger man-Americans'and fostered by Emperor William of Germany and by Prince Henry of Prussia, was dedicated to-day. Within the museum are valuable gifts from Em |jeror William, Princa Henry and other distinguished Germans. The gifts were presented formally to-day at the univer sity and too German Museum Associa tion by Baron von Dem Busscho-Hadden liausen, first secretary of the first German embassy at Washington, and accepted by President Elliot on the part of the uni versity, by Professor Kuno Francke for the museum and by Hon. Carl Schurz for the association. Baron von Dem Bussche-Haddenhausen, who represented Emperor William in the absence of the German . Embassador, Uaron Vernberg, made the following im portant statement: I am happy to couplo -with this formal pre sentation of the Emperor's gift th« announce ment of two other gifts which are about to be made to Harvard University. A year ago last April, after the friendly reception of his Koyal Highness Prince Henry of Prussia by the people of the United .States, there was formed in Berlin a committee of leading men of* telence. art. literature and finance with the view of supplementing the Emperor's do nation by a gift from the Gorman people. The committee decided upon a collection of galvan oplastic reproductions of representative Ger man gold and silver work from the twelfth to the end of the sixteenth century. This costly collection, consisting of more than thirty large and sonie twenty smaller pieces, all of them epecimens of the best workmanship of those centuries. Is now marly completed and I have been authorized on this date that before the fnd of the year this gift of the Emperor will be in the possession of Harvard University. It Is mo«t gratifying that still another side of German life Is to be represented by a gift which comes from your own midst. I refer to tbe mwt welcome addition of the 10,000 books on the hinory of Germany and Oerman civilization which Professor- Archibald Carey Cuoledge Is to make to Harvard College as a memorial to the visit of Prince Henry of Prussia to tiie university in 1902. Ills Majesty the Emperor, as well as his Royal Highness Prince Henry, «re greatly pleased with this thoughtful recognition of their interest In the cause which brings us to gether here to-day, and I have the honor of being the messenger of their appreciation and thanks. President Elliot, responding in behalf of the university, referred to the "generous and suggestive act of his Majesty, the German Emperor," and said: "That act was uniQue in the history of this uni versity and, indeed, in the history of edu cation." BERLIN. Nov. 10.— An exhibition was opened to-night at the Museum, of Indus trial Art of the objects to be presented to Harvard's Germanic Museum as sup plemental to Emperor William's gifts. The collection is the results of the ef forts of Professor Kuno Franke of Har vard University In interesting German artists, scientists and capitalists in the Germanic Museum as a means of display ing the fatherland's art treasures in the United States and strengthening the ties between the two countries. The money required was quietly collected and the Royal MuseUm of Industrial Art" was in trusted to carry out the wishes of the giver?? It was decided to select the gold smith's work of the twelfth to the seven teenth centuries for illustration, and imi tations of fifty-three cups of various de signs, vases and dishes were made by an electroplating process to compose the gift. The articles chiefly are from the work of Nuremburg and Augsburg goldsmiths of the period when this art was at maturity. Many of these objects now are in possession or princely houses, municipalities and museums. Emperor William has permitted the reproduction of several of the finest pieces in his col lection, including the so-cailed Emperor's cup of the sixteenth century by Wenzel Jamitzar of Nuremburg. The Kings of Wurttemberg and Saxony also have per mitted copies to be made of some of their treasures. The largest group consists of sixteen pieces from the town hall of L/une berg, now In possession of the Berlin Mu seum. Among the famous pieces are the 60-called Landschadenbund cup from the museum of Graz, the Luther cup, pre sented to the rerormer upon his marriage by the Wittemberg Town Council, and the Corvinus cup, which King Corvinus of Hungary presented to the Vienna Council of 1642. These reproductions are so suc cessful that an expert scarcely can de tect the difference from the originals. Tho collection will remain on exhibition here for a week and will be sent to Har vard In a fortnight. President Names New Postmaster. WASHINGTON.
