The known dead are: Miss Ann Rhea, of Nashville, Tenn., and Mrs. Isaac T. Khea, of Nashville. The boat left St. Louis last night with 27 passengers, a crew of 30 and a heavy cargo. The river was high and filled with driftwood by the annual spring rise. Near Glen Park they en countered a shoreward draw, and in spite of frantic efforts of the pilots and englners, the boat turned completelv around and swung onto a hidden rock and soon sank in 20 feet of water. The collision and the sinking were so sudden that the Dassengers had no time to get life preservers. The dead women were the wife and daughter of Isaac T.

It was the woman's work to stand against a board while the man threw knives about her until, when she stepped be fore the crowd of onlookers, outline of her body was left traced in quivering shafts of steel. Jealous of a lover, the knife thrower decided in his subtile, Latin way, to make an end of his wife, and in a man ner which could not bring blame. So on the set occasion he throw his knives with usual accuracy until arriving at the side ne"st the woman's heart. Then with great care he threw he Intended assassin blade. But the blade sped to its accustomed position despite the effort of the trained hand to pierce the heart of the unex pectlng victim. And the next knife, thiown with the same intent of wrong, quivered in the board next the unin jured flesh, and the third, and so on jntil the outline wa cjni:,:. .. and the woman stepped out u.iinjuroJ.
