DEATH DEALT

Superstructure of Pullman Car
Shaved Off and Rammed
Through the Smoker
Injured Rushed to Marshall
town, Where Hospital Was
Filled to Overflowing
juries were among the passengers in
the day coach and ymokei^ and it is
believed that but two of the dead were
in the Pullman.
By morning: it is expected that the
track will be cleared and train sen-ice
renewed. «
Prof. X. TV. Parrish of Cedar. Falls,
teacher in economics at the State Teach
ers' college, was one of the first to be
taken from the ruins. He was mortally
wounded and was rushed to the hospi
tal, but died in the ambulance.
Dr. J. W. Devrey of Chicago and Doc
tor Dunham of Sioux Falls were physi
cians on the train. Although injured
themselves, they worked hard to succor
others.
\u25a0lames McXamara, assistant head clerk
of the Modern Woodmen of America at
Reck Island, tk&b in the smoker. He
escaped without injury.
SIGHTS WKRB TBRRIBLK
I. P. Clark, conductor on the Pullman,
was in an upper berth, but, aside from
a few bruises, was not injured.
C. W. Moier of Walla Walla, Wash.,
was in a lower berth in one of the Pull
man coaches near the rear of the train.
"I did not realize it was a wreck,"
paid he. "It sounded as though a man
had thrown a brick on the floor. The
tar I was in was well back. In front
of it were the-mail and baggage cars.
Ahead of these were the smoker and
Pullman. I looked out and saw the
engine overturned before I realized it.
"I saw some terrible things. One
man had been driven head first into a
window. The glass was broken and was
cutting him where his head rested on
the sill, and under all that awful weight
above he screamed and cried for some
one to kill him. I found a stick and
broke the glass under his cheek where
it lay on the sill, and the man's lower
jaw fell to the ground at my feet.
"There was an old man running about
pleading for us to rescue his son. He
was badly hurt himself. The son was
cut entirely in two."
Miss May Hoffman of Waterloo, one
of the dead, was one of a party start
ing out on a pleasure trip. Some
months ago she took third prize in a
national beauty contest conducted by
the New York World.
EGG LAYING CONTESTS
POPULAR IN AUSTRALIA
Egg laying competitions are quite
popular in Australia, reports a United
fstates consular agent, and at the pres
ent time each Australian state is run
ning at least one competition, the
state poultry experts having general
supervision over them. In nearly all
of the Australian states wheat forms a
leading part of the diet of the poultry
in these competitions. In Tasmania,
however, conditions are different from
the mainland of Australia in that very
little wheat is produced and much has
to be imported, so that a wheat diet
for poultry Is not a good business
proposition for Tasmanian farmers.
This "has led to a trial of oats at the
present egg laying competition which
1 visited, high grade oats being very
abundant In Tasmania, with always a
surplus for export. The competition
lias now been going • on for seven
months and the results, so far, have
exceeded the most sanguine expecta
tions of the poultry expert. The lead
ing pen of six white Leghorns laid 826
eggs in seven months, including the
\u25a0winter period.
. The oats are white, heavy feed,
given all the year round at the even
ing meal. In the morning mash there
is a more or less balanced ration. For
instance, in ordinary weather the
birds, in addition to bran and pollard,
would have on consecutive mornings
a certain proportion of ground corn,
ground barley and ground peas mixed
with the mash. However, if the
\u25a0weather is wet and cold the birds have
ground corn added to the mash
\u25a0whether it is the right morning for
them to have i^ or not; oa tha other
hand, during a spell of warn* or hot
weather the com would be left out
and cut green food added.
R. J. Terry, a Tasmanian poultry ex
pert, in connection with this competi
tion has put into successful practice
an original and novel idea of feeding
green food to the fowls, so that the
food may be taken as it grows, with
out, however, the fowls tearing it up
at the roots. The plan is as follows:
A portion of the ground is dug 4
inches deep and sown with various
needs. The green stuff as it grows is
covered by a wooden frame, composed
of 3 by 4 inch timber on which \u25a0wire
netting is very tightly stretched, so
that it is 7 inches above the roots of
tbe crop, which the birds are thus pre
.vented from scratching or disturbing.
The birds apparently take pleasure in
"walking on top of the wire and eating
the green leaves that protrude through
the netting. Their manure fertilizes
the soil and increases the luxuriance
of the growth.
\u25a0 'At the time of my visit a thick crop 1
of Algerian oats had been sown, to
gether with lucerne or alfalfa, the
idea being that the oats formed a
nurse crop for the* lucerne, . which
came up very quickly, and after they
.were finished the lucerne was a per
manent crop to take their place. The
trames which I saw at the competition
were about 9 by 5 feet and were suf
ficient for a dozen birds each. Of
course, any sized .frame might be used
and quite a variety of "crops sown to
milt the various climatic or soil con
ditions. This idea seems to have rem
edied "a long felt trouble, -In fowls
scratching up the food growing for"
their diet. Where there is plenty of
land for the fowls to get about this
trouble may not be serious, but for
the small farmer who has only a lim
ited amount of space available for
growing green stuff for his fowls the
idea seems to have much practical
,value.
', Terry, the poultry expert, . who
showed me the hens in^the competi
tion, stated that for intense egg pro
duction a large amount of lime and
bone forming material must be sup
plied to the birds. He said:
You bare to feed them uatmtcrail y. and has
it «-tct occurred to you wh»t yon are asking the
modern ben 'to accomplish is against what . na
ture intended htT to do? ; A natural \u25a0 ben woald

be called npon to produce 24 egg rbeUa and 24
frames of ehicVens. because, remember, U»at the
frame of the eblrk baf to be contained \u25a0in tbe ;

vored euch a tax, but created a roar of
laughter when he added. "Certain ele
ments in this community supposed to
exercise great influence. Senators Aid
rich and Wetmore, were not just en
amored of it."
Given Gold Casket
When he had concluded his speech
President Taft was presented with a
magnificent gold casket as a souvenir
of his visit. This token of esteem
seemed deeply to effect, him. In ac
knowledging the gift he said:
"I want to say I value most highly
this evidence of your generosity and
your confidence. The presidency is not
an easy burden, and one's spirit some
times lags and 'hopefulness sometimes
disappear?,' and it is at such times this
evidence of 'your good will' is dear."
Senator Aldrich said:
'The tariff for the present is a closed
incident For my part, I am willing it
should be judged by its effect on the
people of the country and their inter
ests.
"It has been my good fortune in the
past loyally to support the president of
the United States. I intend in the
future to give him my loyal and earnest
support, not because ho Is the recog
nised leader of the party to which I
owe allegiance, but because he is chief
of tho administration whose failure or
success is Interwoven *nrith the success
or failure of the American people."

Los Angeles Would Mediate
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
LOS ANGELES, March 21.— The Los
Angeles chamber of commerce to
nightv offered its services as medi
ator to San Francisco and San Diego
in an effort to adjust the ; difference
existing between the two cities re
garding the Panama canal exposition
in 1915. This action was taken after
a long secret session of the directors
and was preceded by an*"open meeting.
At | the . open meeting it was decided
that the chamber will not send a dele
gation to the conference at Santa Bar
bara tomorrow.. : .^w
. Directors of the chamber appeared to
be divided in opinion, a strong element
favoring the plan to send delegates
and others declaring that Los Angeles
should keep hands off. D. C Collier of
San Diego was bitter in his declaration
that San Diego would not be given a
fair show .' and insls'ted that the pur
pose 'of the conference is to discredit
San Diego in the eyes of the' people of
the state and of the nation. :
At a Joint N meetlng of representatives
of the chamber of commerce, mer
chants' and manufacturers' association"
and Los Angeles realty board, with a
delegation from San Francisco, efforts
were made to induce the three bodies
to send delegations to Santa Barbara.
After spirited arguments, the realty
board - and the. merchants and manu

senr representatives unlnstructed, but
the chamber of commerce postponed
definite action until night. »
In thecourse of the discussion W. M.

BRITISH POSTAL SAVINGS
BANK HOLDS $778,640,000
Establishment of First Institu-
tion to Be Celebrated
The first savings bank in Great Brit
ain was established at Wehdover, Buck
inghamshire, in 1799 by Rev. Joseph
Smith.. Scotland will celebrate in June
of this year the centenary of the found
ing in 1810, of a savings institution at
Ruthwell, Dumfriesshire, -by the emi
nent Scotch divine and philanthropist.
Rev. Henry Duncan. In view of the
general interest in such a celebration,
the directors of the Edinburgh savings
bank have taken the matter up and,
in co-operation with other leading sav
ings banks throughout the United
Kingdom, are preparing a plan and pro
gram befitting the conference, to be
held on this "occasion In Edinburgh, of
prominent officers of savings institu
tions. It Is that invitations
have been sent to many savings banks
in all parts of the world to have repre
sentatives present.
For some years after they were in
stituted in Great Britain savings banks
were of the nature of agencies carried
on by. local philanthropists or trustees,
and it was not until 1817 that the gov
ernment " officially .'\u25a0 recognized their
growing utility to the public by an act
of parliament, which brought them all
under a system of government control.
.Through -the advocacy of the late
William E. Gladstone the first postofßce
savings bank was ; created in 1861, as a
means of promoting thrift. The total
savings accounts of the! United King
dom amount at present to more than
$1,119,295,000, of which the postoffice
holds f778,650,000. The aggregate num
ber^ of. depositors exceeds 10,000,000. ..
• If is impossible'- to derive from any
available statistics' a definite idea as to
how much money has been saved
the dual agency, each, ln its own way,
during ; all Uhese years, but Alexander
Cargill, manager of the Edinburgh
savings -bank,', •: a high : authority \u25a0". on
banking and I financial subjectsr, says
that ."many '.hundreds - of 'millions ' of
pounds' sterling 'have passed over; the
counters "-of -"'the -savings banks, *to the
great benefit of and ' their
families.". The > machinery to carry -' on
this '.work Is,': of course, of .; vast dimen
sions, 'but it moves with excellent pre
cision, fostered by thousands of public
spirited and ' philanthropic
while j the government, in addition , to a
special , committee, ; exercises
over all- almost supervision.
\u25a0It may be added. that the funds of the
sayings | banks »\u25a0 of the United Kingdom
do not; representrthe, total results of the
thrift ; of : the nation. : \There are '. other
agencies rat work outside the savings
banks,*?; such~ as '^friendly, co-operative
and 'building societies, which very ; sub
stantially p swell; the f total. - a It , is Car
gill's opinion;.; based on the latest 1 re
turns^ that^the ; sum of
tions of Hhe 1 people may' be put at 12 -
433,250,000.: ... --^
