BOTH DENVER DRIVERS 15,000 PEOPLE WITNESS CATAS TROPHES THAT SEND FRIENDS TO DEATH. Denfer.—While tearing arovnd the Overland park race track at a speed better than a mile a minute, on Labor day, in the presence of a madly ex. cited throng of 15,000 spectators, Wil liam B. Felker and C. V. Dasey were in stantly killed and the lives of Harold Brin key. a driver, and other contest ants and spectators were endangered. The fatalities were caused by two dis tinct and unavoidable accidents, both of which were due to tires bursting. Iu both instances the powerful machines became unmanageable monsters and hurled their drivers into eternity. The greatest excitement prevailed, both in the crowded grandstands and on the verandas of the Overland Coun try Club, which were thronged with fashionably attired women and their escorts. Women fainted and men wept as they saw their friends in dan ger of*destruclion. Only the foresight of the track management in having scores of policemen and deputies on hand to preserve order prevented a panic and still further accidents by preventing the mob from surging on the track until the other machines in the race had been flagged by Starter G. A. Blanchard. When Dasey Wee Killed. It was in the fifth mile that the Ap person Jack Rabbit, a fifty-horse power cor, received a puncture in its tire at about the three-quarter pole. Tho car was about an eighth of a mile from any of these immediately behind it, and when the tire burst the machine whirled com. pletely around three times with terrific force, hurling Dasey, who was at the wheel, out on the track. His death was caused by a broken neck, but whether by the force of the fall or by being run over by oncoming machines will prob ably never be known. The Apperson was withdrawn and owing to the fatal ity thy* Appersop . reserve machine, which waa ready to start, was with- After about the twenty-fifth mile, close observers noticed that the right forward tire on the Felker machine was wearing badly, this condition be ing evident especially around the turns. When this condition was observed. Manager G. A. Wfhlgreen and Referee N. H. V’an Ricklea immediately had a conference with nte judges in charge of the meeting concerning the advis ability of flagging Felker, or, if advis able, stopping the race entirely. Those Informed of the practice In similar cases on trqcks throughout the coun. try decJartfl that the drivers in* all cases ware held strictly responsible tor any Chances they might taken with faulty tires. It was pointed out that all the contestants had tire stations established and it was expected that the drivers, all of whom were experi enced, would shortly stop for the pur pose of making tire changes. The fact that it would be unjust to the other drivers, as well as to the public, to atop the whole race was also brought out In this conference. It was agreed to flag any contestant whose tires ap peared to endanger his life or that of others. At Just about this time, while he was racing past the officials’ stand. Felker’s bad tire partly gave way, and a foot of the outside covering flew a score of feet in the air. Despite this he took the curve at the clubhouse with out slowing down. The officials then decided to flag him at all hazards on the next time around. Btory of Felker’a Death. The rest of the *tory is best told by Harold Brlnker, who miraculously’ es caped without a scratch. "I was laying very close to the Ste ens,” says Brinker. “I heard the tire pop and strained every nerve to avoid a collision in case my opponent slowed .. down. Felker did ghut off his engine about midway,|n the club-house curve, but, then, strangely enough, he threw on full speed ahead and shpt forward with..terfiflc,foree f y I had Juat time to steel myself for the wofst. I saw him swerve and all I could do was to take the fence. I went through first and I was fortunate enough to hit It between two posts. He followed me and must have struck the Jagged fence near one of the posts. I didn’t have any time I to think. I saw Felker hurled high In the nir. My car raced over the grass, Jumped the ditch and ran like a fright ened thing up a forty-five per cent 1 grade. The grade slowed me up and I Jumped to safety unscratched, i "I saw Felker was done for and i rushed to his machine. It was at high i speed when I shut it off. It was yards t beyond where lie lay and was jammed , In between-trees and bushes. The right front tire was gone and the left front wheel completely demoljshed ' where it had partly torn away the J trunk of a tree." » . Observers state that Felker must ave realized the condition of his - tire when the outer covering gave way and . that he seemed to point at the w’heel r as he took the turn. That he slowed t down a bit Is also certain. The reason s he again started up; w;as probably in Tear that some of those coming. behind _ might collide with Wsjnachine. Both Necks Broken. An investigation at the morgue of Coroner Itollins-’ of ’the ,vfrhich. caused tho death of Dasey and Felker J showed that the base of the skull had r been crushed in both instances and r that the necks were broken. Every rib over Felker’s chest and J abdomen was fractured and crushed, and all the ribs on Dasey’s left side were crushed almost into a powder. s The bones in the shoulders were bro i- ken, and also the backbone in several places. .. W. B. Felker came to Denver In . 1881. His father. Judge W. B. Felker. was for a number of years a prominent attorney in this city and passed away eight years ago. Mr. Felker graduated 3 from the Denver High Ochool in 1884, 3 removed to Leadville during the boom 3 days in that camp and engaged in the I mercantile business. He returned to DenVer twelve years ago and engaged in the bicycle business. When the au tomobile first came Into--popular favor Mr. Felker was one of the first to en gage in the business. He had been continually In that business since 1*99. He was born In Oshkosh. Wia .isin, forty-one years ago.

He came to the little settle ment about Fort Dearborn In 1831. A pioneer racing man and ever a lover of horses, Mr. Graves has pro vided that the costliest monument ever erected for a horse will be placed In Washington park. It will memorial ize Ike Cook, a famous trotter, which he owned fifty years ago. Ike Cook had a record of 2:30, which in those early days was remarkable time, in fact, ike Cook was the first horse to make that mark on a one mile track In the state of Illinois. The animal was famous throughout the country, and. with Mr. Graves driving him, won many great victories. To Improve Boyd’s Lake. Greeley, Colo.—Plans have been sub mitted to contractors by B. D. San born for outlet gates and towers and a 300-foot tunnel for Boyd's like, two miles northwest of Loveland. The water from this reservoir will bo emptied into the Thompson river at the head of the Hillsboro ditch for use In irrigating from that ditch. The ob ject is to supply water, by exchange, for use in the Greeley and Loveland ditch, which waters the country be tween Greeley and Loveland, and if possible to supply other canals simi larly situated above the level of the lake. Boyd's like Is four miles long and a mile wide. The tunnel and outlet will draw off thirty-eight feet of water. On the same basis of valuation as Love land lake, Boyd's lake has a value of $1,300,000. Took Gas and Goes Mad. Washington.—While under the Influ ence af gas preparatory to having a tooth extracted.

The agreement was reached in the Brown Palace hotel after the joint com mittee had been in session since Aug ust 21st. The end came as a surprise for many, as it seemed that a deadlock was certain. The result is almost a sweeping vic tory for the switchmen. The only point conceded by them was that ot arbitration. Representatives of the railroad companies regard this conces sion as an important victory. According to R. H. Ingram, chair man of the managers' committee, it establishes a precedent in railroad dif ficulties, this being the first time that both sides have agreed to submit a difference to arbitration. Both sides have agreed to abide by the decision of the arbitrator. A representative from the managers and switchmen will appear before the arbitrator and argue the additional one cent per hour. He will then decide and his decision will be obeyed without cavil. There is no possibility of further trouble between the railroads and their employes, as the differences of the western switchmen were the only ones unsettled by the Chicago confer ences. Labor troubles on the railroads now seem to be settled for at least a term of years. The arbitrator of the switchmen’s difference has already been selected. He is a man prominent nationally and beth sides agreed upon him without argument. Therefore any decision made by him will be doubly accept able as both sides are perfectly satis fied with him. Pending the answer to the telegram sent to him, his name will not be re vealed. It is expected that he will ac cept with hesitation, however. Those involved would not say whether or not he is a government official. The switchmen won a great victory in the agreement by receiving a blan ket increase of one cent over the whole western territory. One of the most bitterly contested points was the claim of the managers that the switchmen working In large centers of industry, like Denarer. Salt Lake, San Francisco ’and other municipalities, should not receive an increase. They were will ing at all times to grant an increase in all desert districts. The switchmen held out for a blanket increase from the first, and gave only one concession, that of arbitration. Increase in Wages Is Result. The number of men Involved by the settlement is said by Mr. Ingram to be 2,500. "This means a very substantial Increase in their wages,” added Mr. In gram. “The switchmen demanded two cents per hour increase in yards in Denver and points west thereof, and submitted evidence that was recog nized by our committee as warranting an Increase of pay in some of the ter ritory, notably those in the desert and mountainous regions of New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Nevada, Colorado, Ida ho and Wyoming. We offered to make some increase in such yards, but declined to admit that exceptional con ditions existed at such points as Den ver, El Paso, Salt Los Angeles. San Francisco, Oakland, Sacramento, Portland. Spokane, etc., which would jjstify the recognition of a differential wage scale.” The roads were finally forced to grant the blanket increase, although Mr. Ingram said they still believe that the switchmen were receiving as much money as their work is worth in every section. The increase In the desert and mountain section he mentioned, he declared should be granted, because of the inaccessibility of the places, and not because the roads believed the liv ing higher. The mileage of the lines represented —every company having a man at the conference —Is approximately 55,000 miles. According to Mr. Ingram, the feeling during the conference was the best and no temper was displayed. He pays a tribute to President Morrissey of tho Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen, whom he says is an earnest and very able man. and "as far as his attitude as the representative of the employes would permit, was at all times fair.” Commander Aldrich Is Removed. Monte Vista, Colo. —The Soldiers’ Home Commission convened at Monte Vista and after a stormy session re moved Commander Aldrich, whose suc cessor is to be chosen at another meet ing. Aldrich continuing on duty until his successor is named. Members of the board had little to say after the meeting concerning their action. A motion was made at the meeting that Adjutant Samuel West be re moved. but before a vote could be taken West handed In his resignation.

The Thatchers were married here twelve years ago. The bride was the widow of William Couch, who left his wife a ranch three-quarters of a mile north of Golden. Thatcher is forty-five years old and his wife is nearly eighty. Several expeditions have been sent out from the University of Colorado tills summer to collect geological, botanical and zoological specimens for the museum. The State Geological Survey, under Professor Russell D. George and Instructor Ralph D. Craw ford, will collect a number of minerals from the Poudre valley region and in Routt county: Professor T. D. A. Cockerell has been at Florissant, Colo rado, collecting fossil plants and ani mals. while Professor Francis Rama ley and a party spent a week in the neighborhood of Ward collecting a complete set of the plants and animals of that region, paying especial atten tion to the lake region.

There will be between 250,000 and 350,000 farmers and stockmen of the middle West at the Chicago stock exhibition, and it is the plan of Colonel Skinner to have the Colorado contingent go to the show city in a special train. Business men from all sections of the state will make up the party and while the mini mum limit has been set at 100, it is hoped that at least twice this num ber can be secured for the trip. Owing to the dangerous condition of the Sugar Loaf reservoir dam. owned by the Colorado Fuel & Iron Company, Turquoise lake will be drained and a big concrete dam will be built. Several years ago the Colo rado Fuel & Iron Company procured a large acreage near Sugar Loaf moun tain and built a dam there for the pur pose of storing its water for use at the Minnequa plant at Pueblo. As a result of the erection of the dam a beautiful lake was formed, which is now filled with trout and is one of the pleasure resorts of Leadville. During the present summer the outlet gates have been working badly and several times it was feared that the entire dam would go out. In order to prevent the possibility of such a disaster the company will drain the lake and put in a concrete dam. It is expected that the work of draining the lake will be gin in November.

A sessionary bishop told this story about F. Marion Crawford, the famous novelist: "Mr. Crawford went to school,” he said, “in Concord, and one day he was taken to call at a Concord clergy man’s. "The clergyman had a missionary box on his drawing room table, and, time hanging heavily on the boy’s hands, he amused himself with try ing whether a silver dollar —it was all the money he had in the world, and he had converted it into that gi gantic coin for safety—would go into the slit in the box’s top. “It was a close fit, but unfortunate ly It did go, and the coin slipped out of the embryo author’s fingers. There was a terrible crash of silver falling among the coppers—and then the boy, as the novelists say, 'knew no more.’ “When he came to himself he found the clergyman and his family in rap tures over his generosity.” Laundry work at home would be much more satisfactory if the right Starch were used. In order to get the desired stiffness, it is usually neces sary to use so much starch that the beauty and fineness of the fabric is hidden behind a paste of varying thickness, which not only destroys the appearance, but also affects the wear ing quality of the goods. This trou ble can be entirely overcome by using Defiance Starch, as it can be applied much more thinly because of its greatp er strength than other makes. Time to Fly. The trust magnate leaped up from the banquet table and made a dive for his 100-mile-an-hour automobile. “Hold on!” cried the astonished toastmaster.

Hot Weather Is Period Moat Trying Both for Invalid and Nurse— Cold Broth Bometimes Bet ter Than Hot. The chronic invalid or convalescent is particularly an object of pity in mid summer. The appetite is less cap tious in cold weather than in hot, and unfortunately for the housewife Is less inclined to put forth special effort at the very time when the invalid is most exacting. As the convalescence or comfort of the ailing member of the household depends so much upon the diet, the effort to supply food at once nourishing and appetizing must be sustained. Daintiness is extremely im portant in serving food for an Invalid. Thin, undecorated china and glass ware, a liberal use of the inexpensive paper doyleys, and garnishings of fresh parsley, cress and silvers of lemon will help along the good work of tickling the jaded appetite. Bread, the staff of life, is always a problem In serving the invalid. When toiwt palls, try pulled bread for a change. This can be made in connec tion with your regular baking day, kept In a dry place and heated as needed. Pulled Bread. —Bake ordinary yeast bread in the shape of long, narrow French loaves. When cool, but not entirely cold, cut lengthwise through tho center, then with two forks scoop or pull the bread out of the crust and. still using the two forks, pull it apart In strips six or seven Inches long and an Inch, or an inch and a half in width and thickness. Line a large baking pan with brown paper and arrange the strips of bread on this, rough and crinkled edges uppermost. Set In the oven with the door partly open until It dries out thoroughly, then close tho door until the bread turns a golden brown. Warm each time before serv ing. This is much like Zweibeck. but its odd shape appeals to the Invalid. If broths must be served as nour ishment, try them ice cold instead of hot. The nutritive qualities are there just the same and, if properly sea soned, iced broths are just as good for the patient as the hot ones, and in finitely more tasty. Herewith are recipes for chicken and clam broth. Serve either in a dainty cup, topped off by a spoonful of whipped cream: Clam Broth.—Buy a dozen small clams in the shell, arrange them in a pan or tray and pour boiling water over them. As fast as they open turn clam and liquor into an enameled stew pan. Add as much water as you have clam liquor. Stew gently for 10 min utes and skim off the scum that rises. Season with a little butter and pep per. Use salt according to taste, but sparingly, as the clam liquor is apt to give a salty taste to the dish. Strain through a very fine sieve and set away to chill. Chicken Broth. —Cut the fowl Into quarters. Lay in salted water one hour. Remove and place In three quarts of water, bringing it very slowly to a boll. 801 l gently until liquor has di minished one-third. Remove chicken. Season the liquor, bring to a boil and strain. Stir a cupful of hot milk slow ly into two beaten eggs, then add the mixture to the broth, stirring slowly. Half of this quantity is sufficient to serve an invalid two or three times a day. Cheese Sticks. On a day when pies have been made, take a piece of pastry dough, roll It out very thin and cut Into strips as long and wide as a finger: spread on each strip grated cheese sprinkled with salt and pepper. Lay on another strip, pinch together, brush with yolk of egg. and bake in a slow oven. If no pie crust is at hand, it can be easily made of a half-cupful of flour, a table spoonful of butter and a little icewa ter. 0 Anatomy of the Caterpillar. The thoughtless person who cere lessly crushes the life out of a cater plllar would probably be muen amazed if told that he had crushed an organization that was made up of parts as numerous and quite as inter esting and Instructive as those of the elephant And a careful study of the anatomy of this minute and much de spised animal has disclosed so many singular and Interesting parts as to warrant a quarto volume on the sub ject. Four thousand and forty mus cles have been discovered In the cater pillar, and not only discovered but described. All of which goes to show that, though trite, 'tis true that to the Creator the smallest Insect Is aa Important aa the largest vertebrate. SUMMONS. STATE OF COLORADO, l County of Prowers. ) ss.
