than a spectacle made by a companv
of motion picture people in the course ?
of producing scenes of marine sensa-

casion of a falsa alarm when a fire tug
steamed up to a M foot launch which
appeared to be in flames a voice came I
f.-on the burning boat. "Ahoy, there. I

voice was Wilfred Lucas, director of
a series of pictures entitled "The Trey

a 120 foot sloop was run down, split
open in the bows and sunk when a
passenger, steamer collided with it not
far seaward from the Coronado hotel.
The spectacle was witnessed by many
hotel guests and many of the onlook
ers became panic stricken. Nurses and
stretchers were rushed to Hie beach,
and a private vacht steamed at full
speed to the scene of the supposed
wreck to pick up survivors. When the
rescue boat arrived Mr Lucas was
found to be on the job and planning

that an approaching operation on the
eyes would not save him from total
blindness, professor Hans voa Peterson,
president of the Munich Society or Ar
tists, and one of the most distlngushed
painters in Germany, committed suicide
by shooting himself through the head.
The painter s last, act was to sit down
at a desk at his official headquarters la
the Munich glass palace, where an
academy exhibition is now taking place,
and write a letter explaining the mo..
tive of his suicide and requesting cre
mation. Professor von Peterson spec

Defective Lances Proved
Fatal to German Uhlans
in Charge Against Enemy
London. Kng. Aug 29. The many
disasters which overtook the Uhlans
in the opening skirmishes of the cam
paign were partly due to their metal
lances. In looking over the battlefield
of Haelen, where the Germans lost 2000
men. lances, made of tube iron, light
and exquisitely fashioned, lay about
everywhere. Most of the lances were
twisted and bent. The Belgians used
bamboo shafts. These yield to a thrust,
while the German weapons, if used
roughly, bend in the lancer s hand.
One lance was found which was bent
like a bow. as if the man had been
shot from his horse and in falling had
leaned his full weight on his long
weapon as the point struck the ground.
