PAGE TWO THIRD TIME CHARM A MISREADING OF ORDERS IS CAUSE Is Very Tall and Very Unhappy And Growing Impatient at Last and Longest Deser tion, She Sues. Of a Smashup on Southern Road Which Caused the Death of Five. GIVEN A DIVORCE TODAY Coquelin Going to Rehearsal During Flood WRECK OCCURS ON CURVE TODAY THE BODY OF ENGINEER YATES WAS STILL BURIED UN DER HIS ENGINE WOMEN ACT '.IKE HEROINES. American New Service! Atlanta, Ga.; Feb. 13 A misreading of orders was today declared to have been the cause of the Georgia South ern and Florida It: It.' wreck nineteen miles below Macon yesterday evening, in which five persons were Instantly killed and eight seriously injured. The crew of train No. 2 is said to have mis taken orders to meet train No. 5 at Bonair, resulting in the collision. The dead are W. J. Yates, engineer of No. 5; Flagman A. R. Johnson, Ma con; Conductor I. 3. Ingalls, Macon; Conductor Dufree, Kathleen. Ga.; trav eling as passenger, unidentified white man. Wreck Cleared Today. Wrecking crews today succeeded In clearing the track to a large extent. Both the engines were demolished and the mail and baggage cars and two day coaches were splintered, in the smash. The scene of the wreck on a curve by Dismal Swamp, added to its serious ness. The body of Engineer Yates was still burled beneath his engine today. The women passengers on both trains today were hailed as heroines. Through several hours before the res cue train reached the scene they work ed courageously aiding in the rescue and establishing an emergency nursing corps. When the hospital train left with, the dead and Injured for Macon late at night the accompanied the vic tims, continuing their ministrations. m IIOWOEPEUDEIIT "Most Expensive Pauper Family" Leaves Cur as a Reminder. ITS FUTURE VERY GLOOMY Doggie, the little cur which was owned by Mr. and Mrs. Robert Shoop and which they refused to part with several weeks ago, having a prefer ence for it Instead of a little girl, by the name of Vernace Ruth French, is the only member of the family now dependent on local charity, and it Is very probable that the dog will be al lowed to shift for itself until it finds a happy home. An effort was made by Mrs. Shoop who left for Harrison, Ohio, today, to take the dog with her. but the interur ban people remonstrated. Consequent ly the dog was given a fond farewell by Its mistress and turned loose on the world. Mrs. Shoop's departure this morning was not a matter of pub lic regret. The unfriendliness of the Shoops toward water has been mentioned sev eral times. It would be logical to be lieve that In departing on a long jour ney, the Shoops' would at least clean up a little bit. However, Mrs. Shoop's toilet this morning must have been coal soot, attractively arranged In long streaks on her face. Her appear ance was more grotesque than ordin arlly. LITTLE IIIIIA LOST All Hope of Finding Naval Tug Has About Been Aban doned. A RECALL FOR SEARCHERS (American News Service) Boston, Feb. 15. The government to day took the first step in abandoning the search for the naval tug Nina, missing ten days. All belief that the little craft may yet be afloat, or that her thirty-two men are alive, has prac tically been given up. The speedy recall of the vessels remaining on the detail was expected today after the revenue cutter Gresham was taken from her cruise for the Nina and de tailed to hunt down a derelict. In naval circles there remained no vestige of optimism today regarding the Nina. The menace to navigation which the Gresham is ordered to destroy lies in the path of shipping in Massachusetts bay. The derelict is a capsized two-masted schooner, and the belief of mariners is that her crew went to the bottom when she capsiied in the snow storm and gale. A DECREE IS GIVEN. A decree in favor of Eliza Alice Hill who was plaintiff in a quiet title pro ceedings against James Gillespie and others wrs rendered this morning up on the default of the defendants.

From Coquelin's doorsteps to the theater entrance the streets were veritable Venetian canals and boatmen reaped a harvest rowing those, who must of necessity make trips, over the submerged pavements. Fresh Fodder Big Jack Powell of the St. Louis Browns is in training at Hot Springs. The former lankee declares he has been on the "water wagon" for three months now and is out to set a good example to Rube Waddell and Larry McLean. , The Boston Red Sox will have extra men for every position on the field. John I. Taylor has ordered Patsy Don ovan to thoroughly look over every thing on the roster and not to cut down to the minimum, till necessary. Joe McGinnity, the Ncward magnate-pitcher, who was- about the best twirler in the Eastern league last summer, is keeping his arm in shape by pitching winter baseball in Okla homa. The Tron Man has signed three Oklahomans for his Indians. Chick Brandon, the young Pirate pitcher who featured in the American Association as a rival of Rube Mar- quard, will have to submit to an op eration. One oi his toes is crooked. and this interferes with his work in the box. Recently the bad toe was jammed, and Brandon thinks it's about time to get rid of the hoodoo. Pittsburg Is a good illustration of the fact that a winner gets results. Al ready all the boxes of Forbes Field have been disposed of for the coming season. And prices are higher in the steel town than elsewhere. Elmer Flick, a few seasons ago one of the greatest outfielders in the Am erican league, has fully recovered his health. He now weighs 180 pounds. Flick has been out of the game for practically two years. He thinks, how ever, that he is as good as new and has asked McGuire to send him south with the first batch of raw recruits. Miner Brown says he isn't a hold out. He just wishes Murphy to see his figures. He thinks there will be nothing to it after Chance has a talk with the chubby one. Joe Tinker is making a great hit in his vaudeville sketch. The Cub short stop is barnstorming throughout Indi ana, and Illinois, where the fans con sider themselves suburbanites of the windy town. Seldom has a league president been afforded such a rousing farewell as that extended Tom Chivineton. the new executive of the American Asso- ' ciation. in Louisville, Ky.; his home town, the other night. Every one of any consequence was there with the glad hand. Chivington got enough presents to fill his new Chicago offi ces. Jiggs Donohue has named his Chi cago semi-pro club the Red Sox. As Anson's Colts, the team never set the world afire. Jiggs is trying to shake the Cap's hoodoo. The White Sox have just corralled a slugging pitcher in Holm from Spo kane of the Northwestern league. He pitched thirty-nine games last year, of which he won twenty-five. He hit for .300. Good players may do about as they please. George Mullin, champion pitch er of the American league, is play ing basketball at Wabash, Ind.. In di Tect violation of President Nevin's orders. But the owner of the Tigers will be there with the glad hand be fore the end of the month. Dick Carroll, the big Yankee recruit SWA box. 35c for Fandom from Akron, Ohio, will probably make New York city his home in the fu ture. He will devote his winters to his tobacco business, which he launch ed this year. KEEP AN EYE ON BARNETT. New York Schoolboy Ice Skater Hat Making of Champion. If Larry Barnett, the crack school boy Ice skater of New York, keeps on Improving there Is little doubt that he will make all the fast knights of the steel blade In this country look to their laurels should he decide to com pete in the big amateur events next season. Last year he outdistanced all . his schoolboy rivals in Greater New York and established several new rec ords. This year be has been duplicat ing his performances of last season. Recently he won the half mile senior handicap from scratch in the record time of 1 minute 50 seconds. The previous record was made by him in 1907, when he won the final of the fclnlMill a Mini 1 1 1 1 1 i .LWA'tv, ;,'.; LABKT. BARHETT, HEW TOBK'S CKACX ICS SKATER. high school boys' championship of New York series in 1 minute 56 4-5 seconds. The recent feat was the more re markable because the ice was in poor shape, and he was handicapped by a large 6eld that made it necessary to use the best of judgment la working his way to the front. He Judged his race so closely that it was only on the last lap of the eight that he overtook and passed the leaders and won eas ily.

Their marriage was solemnized after a two years' courtship, and the plaintiff testified there was no objec tion to their marriage on the part ofi any of the relatives. Upon their return to this city, they went to housekeeping and the defend ant tended bar. They had not lived to gether long until the defendant desert ed her, but was induced to return. A repetition of the occurrence resulted likewise and after about six months of married life, the third desertion was committed. But there was no return. The witness said that each desertion followed a spree on the part of the de fendant. Xo provision has been made for the "plaintiff by the defendant.
