The order of the bridal procession was the same as usual. The ushers lead the way and were followed by the flower maid ens, and they in their turn by the brides maids. Miss I'aullne hitney, tho bride, walked up the aislo with her father. To the Inartlstto eye the bridal gown probably did not appeal as strongly as did omo of the many beautiful costumes In the brilliant assemblage in the body of tho church, hut to ono who could nppreci ate the skill and exquisite tnsto of one of Worth s oreations it was a dream of love liness. The materinl was of tho heaviest white satin, and the skirt fell In a long train. It was trimmed In front with a flounce of li.oe so delicate that It looked like spider web, and the corsage was high. The sleeves were puffed out from 6houlder to elbow, and from elbow to wrist they nlung olosely to the shape of the arm. Around the bride's neck was a collar nt point anglotorre, the lace falling over the sleeves. Through the lace on the skirt were fastened garlands of smtll roses and empire knots. The flounre was over a full chiffon frilling and did not lie direct ly on the satin. A long trnln of orange blossoms full over the waist and skirt on the left side. IWmntiful Bridesmaids.

The gowns they wore were selected for them by Miss Brown In Paris. They wore made especially to suit the general style and complexion of the wearers. Miss Brown's own onstume was a paie green moire poplin, with a perfectly plain skirt, fastened at the left side with three silver and pale green clasps. There were five plaits at tho hack of the skirt, and the bottom was edged with sable. Tho wuibt was caught at the side with flat silver olasps, and there were lace and sable bands on the front. The elbow sleeves were full and drooping and slashed with three laoe Insertions. The collar wns one shade deeper than the gown and of the same material. The Klizahethau ruff of plaited gauze and fur flared out fully four Indies from the collar. Mr. Almerlo Hugh Paget, who Is the third in his family to wed an American girl, awaited his bride at the chanoel with his brother, Mr. Gerald Paget.

Krauel Found In a Cellar With the Thrn.it Int. Nkw Youk, Nov. ID. The dead body of W. Krauel was found in a cellar by Eu gene C'romellen, a plumber In the employ of the Standard Gas company. Krauel had a few days before rented tho Bret floor of the two ttory building at 155:4 Hecond avenue, and was preparing to open a cheap restaurant there, lie wna a Ger? uinn, about 40 years of age. An examination of the dead man show, ed that the murder had been a brutal and horrible one. The left eye, entirely cut from Its socket, lay near theoorpso'shoad. There was a huge, ugly gash clear through the skull across the left rye, and the throat was cut from ear to ear. The room In which the body was found was a small kitchen In the rear of the room which wna to have been used as a restaurant. Pots and pans were scattered about the room. The stove was overturn ed, and the walls were spattered with blood. It was evident thero had been a severe struggle before he yielded up his life. Close beside the body were found a long hotelier's knife and a hatohet. Both were covered and clotted with blood. Deputy Coroner U'ilanlon said that tilt blow with the hatchut across the left eye probably killed Krauel, and the murder er cut his throat afterward to make sure there would be nobody left to tell any tales. Krauel had been dead for soma time, at least 81) hours, probably longer. The police believe that the motive for the orlme was robliery. Krauel when last seen, late on Friday night, had a roll of bills in his possession. There was not a cent found on the body nor about the premises where the murder oocurred. The olews as to the Identity of the as sassin are so meager and frail that It la more than prubable that It will be added to the long list of mysterious murders, the authors of which the police were never able to discover.

A gaping rent near ly 40 feet wide from top to bottom of a live story leislness block, a score dead bodies recovered, n score of persons Injur ed and more than that number missing, with a certainty thnt many more dead bodies are beneath the ruins, such Is the result of an explosion which startled the oity and totally wrecked iibnut a third nf the building at the corner of turned and Shelby streets, occupied by the Detroit Kvening Journal and sovoral other ten ants. Tho whole neighborhood was terri fied by a fearful shock, caused by the ex ploding of the boilers in the basement of The Journal building. Plate glass win dows across the street and somo of those fnrther away were shattered by the oon- cusBlon, and several persons were cut by falling glass. At the same Instant the Ave floors nnd roof of that section of the building collapsed and 'ell to the base; ment, carrying with it at least 50 persons, whn had not the slightest warning of their danger. The cloud of dust which blinded tho eyes of tho amazed spectators of the horror was quickly succeeded by smoke from the fires which started In the ruins. The work of reRcne wns rushed to the utmost all day, but progress has neces sarily been ti-v s'ow. Partlsl List of the Pea.

Aboiit 20 tenants nud employees In the building are still missing, and there can be no doubt that must of these are lying dead under the debris. The wrecked portion of the building, which Is owned by thn Newberry estate, was separated from the rest of the struc ture by a fire wall. The first lloor of that section was ocoupied by the John Davis company, dealers in druggist's specialties, and by The Journal mailing department. The second, third and fourth floors were occupied by the Davis company, W. W. Dunlap & Co., machinists, and Hllller bookbindery. The editorial rooms of The Journal are on the fourth floor, but situ ated beyond the fire wall, and the staff es caped Injury. The Journal stereotyping room on the fourth (lixir waa directly in the path of the explosion and went down In the wreck. A few had miraculous es capee and came staggering from the ruins after the awful shock, scarce kuuwlng themselves what bad ImfttUeu then). Twenty Ulrls In the Mnlldinc. 'M. Jacobs, a paper dealer, who had been In Hllller's bindery, had Just left the building when the crash came. He thought there must have been 20 girls and four or five hoys In the bindery, besides George J. Hllller, the proprietor, of whom noth ing has beer, sevn or heard snoe thf oo dent. Charles Hackettwas found In the ruins In the rear, to which approach waa had through the alley. Befure he was removed In the ambulance he reported there had been four or nve girls on the floor with him. Charles Hergert, a packer, employed by John Davis & Co., was on the third floor when the exploslou occurred. "I felt the crash and was surrounded by flying debrlp before I could realize What happened. The vinegar barrels ami acid carboys came down on us. I don't know how I got out. 1 know I breathed the fresh air after a scramble among the ruins and knew 1 had escaped. There were four others In the building that I knuw of Alex Campbell, Annie Tapley, Kittle Leoimrd and Joe Vintor, the book keeper. I duu't know who got out alive" From the lists of tenants and employees secured It seems certain that 60 people In all were In the collapsed section. There are still 20 persons unaccounted for, and It Is more than fair to presume that most of them aro among the dead. At every hour reports are received of others who are missing and whose relatives and, friends have been unable to find any traoe of thorn. Ofliclal Inspector and opiupatent engi neers have examined portions of thp wrecked boilers and prunoupued the cause as low water, causing a superheated con dition of the flues, which vyaa followed by the dangerous )ojocloo of oald water. Engineer Thompson's carelessness ts strongly condemned. The engineer of The Free Press states that he had previously warned Thompson against leaving his boilers without having any assistant tn watch them. Some oocupnnts of the build ing give similar testimony. Thompson In sists that he saw both boilers ten minutes before the explosion, and that they con tained plenty of water and H5 pounds' pressure of steam. Ths F.nglneer Arrested. Dkthoit, Nov. 9.
