Almost Instantly Killed in
Street of Alameda
George Elliott, an Aged Retired
Fanner, Drove Death Deal
ing Touring Car
OAKLAND, July 25.—Alice Carlsen. 9
years old, was run down and almost In
stantly \iiled this evening at 6:15
o'clock at Sixty-ninth avenue and East
Fourteenth street before tln» eyes of lier
parents, Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Carlsen,
and an elder sister, Mary, by an auto
mobile owned and drlvea by George
Elliott, 71 years old, a retired farmer
Jiving at lini Central avenue, Alameda.
Elliott had recently bought the ma
chine, a five seated totrinK car, and
was inexperienced in operating it. With
him In the ear sat his son, T. Elliott.
Alice Carlsen met her fate within two
blocks of h,er father's home at 1606
Sixty-ninth avenue. She was hit by the
heavy car within 300 yards of the place
where. 10 years ago. a sister, Lillian,
then 10 years old, was run down by an
electric car and instantly killed.
BOTH WIU IO\FISKD
The statements of all concerned in
th« accident bear out the theory that
both Elliott and the child wer
fused. Elliott was driving west, keep
ing to the north side of East Fourteenth
street. He saw the Carlsens ]<?■■.
east i Fourteenth street ear
and stand at tiie crown of the pavement
waiting until lie had passed. Then,
when he was but five feet distant, he
saw the girl break from her guardians
and run toward the sidewalk. The
father had a moment before held his
daughter by the hand. He could not
move to save her from injury so quickly
did the accident occur.
Shaken by the occurrence. Elliott
smd his son left the machine, put the
unconscious child into it arfd, taking
Oarlsen and his wife along, speeded to
Fourteenth street and Fruitvale
avenue, carrying Alice to Dr. K. Ham
ilton's otnre. The child was found to
be dead .when laid on the floor, al
though she struggled for a moment in
being carried up the stairs. Doctor
Hamilton said she was injured inter
nally and had a fracture of the spine.
ELLIOTT ARRESTED
The police were notified of the acci
dent while Doctor Hamilton was at his
work. Policeman McComber went to
the office and arrested Elliott, who was
charged with manslaughter and re
leased last night on his own recog
nizance by order of Police Judge Sam
uels.
"I do not blame Ellfott, although I
could see he was inexperienced at run
ning a car," said the dead girl's father.
•It was accidental, although I think if
Eillott had been expert as a driver he
have avoided the child.
■rife and I had taken little Alice
r sister Mary to San Francisco,
which we do every year before school
opens. The child was anxious I
home to tell her elder brother and sis
ter of her fun. and that was why she
ran from my side when the auto was
approaching.
"Alice was our youngest child. She
wm killed Close to where her sister
Lillian was hit by a. streetcar 10 years
ago. Alice went to the Lockwood
school."
MACHINE TRAVELING SLOWLY
"I was not traveling fast," is Elli
ott 1* explanation. "I thought the child
"would remain at her parents' side and
when she ran aoros3 my path I was so
near I could not avoid her. In fact,
until we got her to the doctor I did not
suppose she was seriously hurt, for I
thought only a fender of the car had
• truck her. I have not operated n
auto much and I know I was traveling
slowly and cautiously, as I did not
•want to take chances of accidents."
Carlsen is a fire insurance agent.

in this portion of the firmament more
than 3,000 stars. During the last two

vey could be made in four years.

CROSSED WIRES
LEAD TO ROMANCE
University of California Opera
tor Wins Piedmont "Cen
tral" Over Phone
r
BERKELEY. July 25—A mild flirta
tion begun over the telephone wires
between California hall, the adminis
tration building of the University of
California, and the Piedmont Tele
phone exchange nine months ago de
veloped into a romance between Charles
Schindler, who received his degree In
May, and Miss Ula Roff, whom he
married in San Rafael two weeks ago.
During his college course, Schindler
acted as night exchange board operator
for the university. Whether the wires
were crossed or there wu a call from
the Piedmont "central" he does not
know, but at any rate their voices met.
The first talk over the wires was fol
lowed by nightly conversations, which
grew tender as the weeks of tlje tele
phonic acquaintance continued.
A meeting was sought and the own
ers of the voices were as well pleased
as when several miles of wires »ep
arated them. For reasons best known
to themselves, howeven, the couple
sought the Marin county Gretna Green
and were made man and wife by Judge.

DISFIGURING ECZEMA
CIEDMIEKS
Blisters Broke and Formed Scabs.

- Itchy. Used Cuticura Remedies.

"My nephew first snowed signs of eczema
I on the middle finger, and it 'came out like
a blister. . His mother thought he had gotten.
a burn in some way unknown to her, and she
treated it as such. He must hare rubbed his
face with that hand, as it then broke out on
his nose the same way. When the blisters
■ broke, they shriTelled up and formed scabs.
His nose was covered with scabs, and it was
Tery itchy. He was badly disfigured with un
; sightly scabs. At first, his nose was sore,
and it gradually became worse so his mother
a took him to the doctor. He gave her some
preparation, and told her to - rub the ' scabs
off erery day, and anoint the affected, part
with the medicine he gave her.
"The man must hare been insane, as that
was extreme J torture ,to the child who was j
: only two years . old at the time, and that
was two years ago. Well, we decided, that
, that treatment would have to end. ■ I sug
gested Cuticura Ointment and ■ they bought
. It ■ and' put 'it on freely every day; for two
weeks. He had the eczema for four weeks
altogether, but was getting gradually worm
I until they used the Cuticura Remedies, and
he was cured in two weeks. He most cer
tainly would hare been scarred with the
other treatment, but now he hasn't a single
mark. Cuticura Remedies cured him in two
weeks, and now we always keep them in the
house." (Signed) Miss Ida Slavin, 283 South
Fifth St., Philadelphia, Pa., Jan. 4, 1911.
For.more than a generation the Cuticura
Remedies have afforded the most economical
for affections of the skin and scalp
' of Infants, children and adults. A cake, of
.'Cuticura Soap (25c.) and a box of Cuticura
Ointment (50c.) are often sufficient. Al
though sold throughout the world, a liberal
sample of each, with 32-p. book on the skin,
