Child Travels Alone From Mem»
phis and Finds Friend at
End of Journey
Esther Conn, a 12 Year Old Lass
of Memphis, Term., Reunited
With Her Brother
But- for a slip of blue paper, little
Esther Cohn of Memphis, Term.. might
still be wandering through the streets
of Oakland or this city in search of her
brother, Samuel H. Cohn, principal of
the Porter school of Alameda.
When the Overland train pulled in at
the mole yesterday afternoon a girl,
not quite 12 years old. with long, flow
ing black curls and keen black eyes,
f lighted. She was a stranger among
the busy depot crowd and, though un
afraid, looked longingly for somebody
expected.
She paced up and down the asphalt
walks, carrying a suitcase too big for
her tiny hands. P. .1. O'Brien, an oil
operator of Bakersfleld, noticed that
she was worried and asked her if he
inlg-ht'be of assistance.
Little*' Miss Cohn held out a blue slip
she carried In her hand. It was a card
from the Elks' lodge of Alameda and
was Issued to assist the young traveler
on her journey from Memphis.
O'Brien was a member of the Call
fornia delegation that represented his
district at the annual convention at
Atlantic City. . He took the child in
charge and invited her to accompany
bint to this city.
Both registered at the St. Francis.
The oil man explained the little girl's
predicament to Carl Sword, the chief
clerk, and every comfort the big hotel
affords,was at her disposal. She was
shown to one of the coziest rooms and
a maid called to see that she was made
at home. <
Then Sword got busy at the phone.
He ing up the Oakland lodge and the
Alameda lodge and these in turn began
a search for Sam • Cohn, who was
searching for his little sister. Within
an hoi the school teacher was located.
He rushed over to the St. Francis,
where he found Miss Esther reclining
in a big red plush chair, surveying the
passing show in Union square.

THE amateur theatrical season will
open at! Santa Barbara next week
with a kirmess and in September
the peninsula stars will appear in
vaudeville. Later events -are not. an
nounced. A minstrel show would be
an innovation, the success of one on
the Manchuria last week proving pos
sibilities. Mrs. Charles Huse, who was
vivacious little Miss Wells: before her
marriage, was the Black Patti and lead
ing spirit of the Manchuria minstrels.
She was a fascinating dusky star and
spent days getting the black off, but
arrived in port Saturday fair and free of all the burnt cork traces.
There is a lot of local talent that.might shine in minstrels. A more
interesting interlocutor than Willard Barton couldn't be found, imposing in
appearance, with the dignity of these polished colored gentlemen, whose
aplomb is so perfect. ...'.. , ' ,
However, itais not a minstrel show that will engage the talent of San
Mateo county and Willard Barton in September. . But a vaudeville, , for
chanty at Uplands, where Mrs. Fred McNear and Mrs. Eugene Murphy will
do stunts and Mrs. Walter Martin will have the assistance of Walter's wit
in auctioning beauties, presumably conducting a burlesque slave market on
modified lines.
There will also be a bazaar and from all accounts the fete will be a sort
of Nijni Novgorod Fair, which is the most famous fair in Europe and the
most picturesque; where slaves were once bartered arid where dancers, con
jurors and strolling players wander among crowds gathered from many
lands. A wonderful kaleidescope of life and color that Baedeker believes
should not be omitted if one tours Russia..
The crowds at Uplands will be different, the most striking contrasts
being Ross valley conservatism and the spirit of Burlingame with slight
distinctions of costume. Menlo inhabitants-are a cross between and will be
indistinguishable like the visitors from town. But the bazaar and beauty
market, the strolling players and dancers, whom it is said will be Miss
Enid Gregg and Miss Innes Keeney, may have something of Nijni Novgorod
about them if one has enough imagination.

News of Autos and Motorists
LEON J. PINKSON
In discussing the "unfortunate acci
dents which occurred at Brighton
beach' recently, Ralph de Palma, the
famous driver of Simplex cars, who is
conceded to be the greatest living ex
ponent of mile track driving, made
some interesting remarks and offered a
suggestion or two to eliminate the dan
ger connected with dirt saucer racing
in the future. .jMUtU
"It Is unfortunate that several drivers
have lost their lives on' tracks recent
ly." he said, "but in about; every case
the trouble was traceable chiefly to one
thing—lnexperience. I do not wish to
appear unkind In criticising \ the boys
who are no longer with us. but merely
mention it to suggest a cure for»the
fault in the future.
"Strange to say, nearly all of the bad
accidents lately have occurred In prac
tice trials —not In the race itself, and
these accidents would not have hap
pened had the men involved obeyed in
structions and the American Automobile
association rules. ". At Brighton one of
the victims in practice did what no ex
perienced race driver would attempt.
He drove on the course while; the oil
was being laid and against the track
superintendent's orders at that. At the
wrong instant' he encountered the oil
wagon and turned too sharply, skidded
on the freshly oiled surface and upset.
The next day" in practice Frey lost his
life when \. another driver him off
without giving sufficient warning.
"When • the smashup occurred In the
10 mile handicap .-. on July «• 3 It was
through Inexperienced pilots not obey
ing "orders. The race received a .false
startsome of the drivers who pulled
away first falling to await; the signal.
They were ■ novices and not only did
they make this blunder, but also failed
to": pay attention to the. signals to halt.
Inasmuch as this race was a handicap
and the long markers at the 'finish' of
their . first' lap,might expect {to ' see ; the
scratch men at; the wire on the ."pole"
side, awaiting, the signal to go, none of
the small car drivers should have tried
to pass over the wire on the "pole.'' but
should have come - down the: stretch
nearer , the'outside,"- In which case the
smashup" would; have; been i avoided. ;
; "The remedy I would suggest would
be ' for ' the American ; Automobile asso
ciation i contest : board [ to *, have -'a* repre
sentative : officially appointed; to: super
vise practice at each meet.' ■ • This would
not be difficult or expensive.. The driv
ers 'who i have been through^tbe mill
know how to take care of themselves.
They I always % give ;: each other ' a suf
ficiently wide berth and* you* will usu
ally notice that, the .veterans: do not
drive as fast In practice as in the com
petition,itself. •■;^M^gf^jf^g^g^fgOlA
"'I would suggest that, during "practice
on small courses, the experienced ; men
be" allotted [certain" periods to J, try,; out
their cars and novices, different periods.
In | this way all would get 'the same fair
chance and if the. supervisor saw to it
that only a few .novices', were permitted
on the courseone time there would
be,less accidents. The,practice "super
visor could , be any reliable team - man

WOMAN’S EVIDENCE
SEEMS INCREDIBLE
Eight Years on Crutches From
/ Rheumatism, Is Now En
tirely Cured
Says New Munyon Method of
Treatment Is Miraculous
in Results
Mrs. J. W. Bowerbank, who lives at
the Hotel Irwin; and is widely known In
San Francisco, came forward yesterday
with a statement relative to the new
Munyon method of medical treatment
that she declares.herself seems almost
Incredible. Her story: is best told in
her own -words. She said:
"I know that what I have to.say. will
hardly he credited by the general pub
lic, and I must confess that even to my
self ;my experience .seems miraculous.
But my neighbors can tell you. my hus
band can tell you and: my. doctor, can
tell you that what I say is positively
true.
"For eight years I was crippled with
rheumatism. I had a terrible case. I
could not walk, and had to limp around
on crutches. , I suffered " excruciating
agony. ..The pain in my limbs was;so
bad that it twisted them out of shape.
I could not sleep nights and I could
hardly eat from the suffering : I f en
dured. Life hardly seemed worth' liv
ing. I* felt i l*■ was -hopeless. ; I spent
hundreds of dollars in doctors and med
icines trying to get cured, but abso
lutely nothing seemed to help me.
Finally I obtained a full course of Mun
yon's uric acid treatment,: and "here If
where the wonderful part of my story
comes in. /\
"Immediately, within three days. I
could straighten my limbs and walk on
them. Within a week I had thrown
away my crutches." The swelling all
went away and all of the pain stopped.
I could sleep at nights peacefully for
the first time' In years. Within one
month I was entirely cured, and I am
today absolutely free from rheumatism.
But I was not alone in Jmy experience.
I am a nurse by profession and have
since - several times had "occasion to
recommend Munyon's treatment to pa
tients and friends suffering from rheu
matism and other ailments. In every
instance a complete and quick cure,
just like mine, resulted. JI think the
people of San Francisco owe Professor
Munyon st vote of thanks for coming
here."; ' - Vl^HHHlßQtaaKtt'i
Mrs. Bowerbank was not alone In her
'testimony in favor of Munyon. All last
week at Munyon's headquarters in the
Owl drug store In the Phelan building,
a continuous stream of people called to
add words of praise for the eastern
health expert. Many were enthusiastic
about the mat), and remarkable cures
of stomach trouble, catarrh, kidney ail
ments and Intestinal disorders were re
lated—Adv. , * *

Condition Makes Identification
Impossible
HAVANA. July 23.—The remains of
bodies supposed to represent six or
seven members of the crew; of the
Maine, -were recovered yesterday after
noon, bringing the total so far found
to 11. All were discovered beneath
the enormous mass of wreckage on the
central superstructure ' near the in
verted conning tower.
The bodies were piled in a confused
mass. Hardly -a single member is in
tact, most of them showing evidence
of the. action of fire which immediate
ly -after the explosion raged in that
direction of the ship. ..
There Is not the.least hope of iden
tification. There is no trace of cloth
ing and the skulls are much shattered.
In several cases being represented by
only small fragments. The remains
of other bodies are In view but can
not be recovered until the removal of
the wreckage.' Some bones are tightly
wedged between ragged pieces of rusty
steel. t -
