RENO, Nev., Oct. 12. — Following a
duel to "the death between "Will
A. Flowers and his father, Wil-
liam D. Flowers, an aged miner
at Tule canyon, the youngrer man has
surrendered to the authorities at Gold
field. After the coroner's inquest
Flowers was charged with manslaugh
ter, end Trill be biven a preliminary
hearing soon. • ,-
The story of tn« duel, as told by Mor
gan "Williams, who accompanied the
Flowers to a lonely camp in the desert,
reads like & romance. He said that
xrtien he arose "Will Flowers was in his
father's tent holding^, him down, while
beside the two men was a broken
chair. Will Flowers asked Williams
to hold his father. Baying that his
parent had broken the chair over his
baclc after an argument.
Duel to the Death
Williams says that the older man
was raving 1 like a maniac . when he
took hold of him. After he quietea
him down he released him, and the
father immediately commenced to throw
things at his son. He threw a miner's
rick, and soon after, the two men stood
outside their tents and fought a duel
to the death.
Williams says ; that when he reached
the father's prostrate form he was lying
en his side with a shotgun clenched
In his left hand. The weapon had
Just been discharged, and the barrel
was still warm- Flowers was left
hand-dv and- a*\-wm~wss*app>o>aching ;
from the left it was nece^ary for his
father to step outside of the tent m
order to shoot. The father was badly
wounded and'died soon after. . 4
Vigil Over the Body
Wi!J Flowers left for Goldfield to
give himself up to the officers, leaving
Williams 5n charge of the body. In
describing his vigil over the body, Wil
liams said:
"When Will left for Goldfield I
washed the body, wrapped it in can
vas and watched carefully to see that
the camp cats and coyotes did not get
at it. At 2i!sht I lighted a candle and
placed it beside the body, but at 3
O'clock in the morning I awoke and
found the tent containing the body was
in flames. Apparently, the wind had
blown something inflammable against
the candle, thus setting the tent on; fire.
The canvas wrappings protected the
body from the flames; but the tent'w&s
destroyed." .- . - -

soon, and to the longings of the'fathers'
or mothers \u25a0 who. ere ".separated from

has s returhe t r here to 'assist Sister Hel
ena In making readyfthe building ; at
Franklin and \u25a0 Ellis .streets, where < the
orphanage' will be -reopened." She \told
of the : enthusiastic and kindly recep
tion given the little band of homeless
children there. The sisters and children
met them with every expression- of af
fection and sympathy. The children;
girls 'from 7 to 12 years old, \u25a0bewil
dered still from the' danger they had
passed, through bo miraculously, worn
from fatigue and loss of. sleep, their
eyes and lungs burning arid ! painful
from the stinging smoke .'which had
.almost overpowered'' them as they fled
in the early morning down, the wide
corridors of the blazing ;building,_were
made to feel they, had reached a second
home. '\u25a0"; Baths and fresh new clothes
were given them and beds where they
might lose in" peaceful sleep the mem
ory of their trials. -- . •
Thoughts Are of ;Home f ;
Despite all .this", their thoughts are
air for the home they'have lost andthe
gentle sisters.. the, longing parents and
the friends; from •whom'they are sepa
rated.
The only i means -^ of comforting • them
lies in the hands of the great} public—^

MRS. LUMMIS
SEEKS CUSTODY

Contents of Author's Famous
Diary Likely to Be Kept
Secret From Public
Trouble Has Gone Too Far. for
Reconciliation, Says the .
Scientist's Wife
"With Charles Fletcher Lummls, au
thor, scientist and musician, contented
ly strumming his guitar and playing
•cavalier to his housekeeper and feani
.nine secretary in Los Angeles, and h!s
wife coming out with th^ direct state
ment that affairs had progressed too far
for- a reconciliation, what little hope
there existed among their friends .to
bring them together vanished yester
day. ... . .
.That there will be a divorce action is
taken as a matter of course. \u25a0 but tire
famed diary will not.be used as evi
dence, according to the present/ indica
tions. ' When questioned regarding, it.
Lummis said:
"If there is such a diary. It was ed
ited for me arid not by me."
. Which the other side takes It- to
mean that if the diary is produced in
court they -roill have to go to the
trouble of proving- that what is written
therein Is not the mental meandering*
of a romastic writer, but the actual ex
periences of .the author. As a liter
ary light Lummis is licensed to delve
into the imaginative and conjure up
visions of love in such fancies and
shapes as please , him and which he
believes will please his publishers; and
if he chooses to do so in diary form.
Chance for Escape
Therefore, he strums his guitar and
sings love songs, in his castle home.
Let the come to the worst, and
if ultimately the little gods should so
will.it: that* the diary, should -be haled
into court he has a large loophole and
may;conveniently. duck from under. If
It^cbntatns rec"«rds'l>f meetings with a
woman not; his .wife.- may it rot be^ut
the rough draft of. a modern probfem
Hovel. If -therein are found passionate
utterances' In* Greek, what." more nat
ural than for a scholar •of .attainments
than^'tb^thVa amuse hiaisßjf? If be
tween the pages are discovered love
verses,; strange and inexplicable, may
they not be for publication in a modern
monthly magazine? In effect, he says:
"You may have the diary, but my kind
friends— cherchez la femine."
This diary is bound in mystery. Its
contents none know save the immedi
ate persons to the trouble and their
respective lawyers. Mrs. Lummi3 re
fused to discuss the subject, but would
not deny that she had it in her posses
sion, v^;
"To discuss that matter now." she
said, "would be tantamount to fighting
my case out of the courts, and I do not
want to do this/ It is absolutely im :
material what Mr. Lummls has to say
regarding the diary — I refuse to dis
cussrit. If it should be necessary to
bring, all this matter into a law court
that would put a different complexion
on the situation arid I would not have
any. hesitancy in explaining the cir
cumstances. Until then, however. I
think it would be best to keep silent
regarding them.
Friend of Doctor Moore • -
"There is one point which I would
like denied, and that is in connection,
with Dr. Dorothea Moore. For some
time past there has been a persistent
story to the effect. that I was married
from her home and that she attended
me .when "my first child ; was born, and
thlg is untrue." Mrs.' ; Moore and myself
have .been warm friends ; for a Ion?:
time, but I; was, not married from her
borne and she did not attend m« pro
fessionally.'.* .
• Continuing. Mrs. Lummls declared
that.; the trouble between her husband
and herself had gone too far to allow
for a reconciliation. These are her view 3
and .Lummls does not seem .to care.
Accordingly the expectations are that
the matter will be arranged as quietly
as possible and a divorce proceeding,
eminently respectable, proper and cog.-*
servative. instituted.
On one point Mrs. Lummls is decided,
and that is ' she _\u25a0 will get the three
children. Two of them, Eva, the eldest
daughter,, aged 16. and the youngest.
Harry, 6 years old; are with her at
the! Hotel Victoria now, but another
boy of. 11 is with the father In Los
Angeles. .
Demands Children
"I have every right to the children." :
she declared. ,"I have done my duty as*.'
awlie and mother and the separation
hasinot been brought by any action of
mine. The. rights of this case are rec- '
ognized by .both Mr. Lummis and my
self. He may. say and do whatever he
pleases, but^ he knows -full well that
this trouble is due to his conduct."
/\u25a0Though married to Mrs. Lummis for
almost -20 years the writer has spent
muchlbf'hls time away from home "in
bis, research work and on scientific ! ex r
peditlons. "
Aided Her Husband
it'aiuchi of .his. success, his wife "said,
has i been-' due. to her efforts. At -the'
time* he" married her he: was a newa
'pa'perman, *h* said, : bu t lacked the con
centration and ambition necessary *?to
