SPRINGFIELD - COLORADO TWENTY-FIVE BURN TO DEATH CAUGHT IN BURNING BUILDING, ESCAPE WAS IMPOS SIBLE SIX ARE STILL MISSING GIRLS LEAP FROM BUILDING LIKE RATS FROM BURNING BARN Newark. N. J. —In ten minutes twen ty-five girls were burned alive Satur day or crushed to death on the pave ment in leuplng from the windows and fire escapes of the four-story fac tory building at Orange and High streets, occupied on the top floor by an underwear manufacturing concern. Here the death list w’us heaviest The lower floors were occupied by two pa per bok concerns and two electrical fixture factories. The latest count shows that twenty of the twenty-five bodies recovered have been identified and that six girls are missing. They may be among the unidentified dead or yet in the ruins. The collapse of a wall interrupted further search. Fifty were taken to a hospital,~of whom two may die. The building was exceedingly In flammable and the first gush of flames had cut off all escape by the stairways. The elevators made one trip, but took down no passengers and never came back. The only exit was by two narrow fire escapes, the lower platforms of which were twen ty-five feet from the street. On to these overcrowded and steep lanes, scorched dancing hot by the Jets from lower windows, pressed forward a mob of women blind with panic, driven by the fire and others behind them. A net had been spread beneath the windows and the girls began to jump. "Like rats out of a burning bln" was the way a firemlb described that descent. They came out of the win dows like a thick treacle rolled up on the heads of those below them, and cascaded off the fire escapes to the pavement sixty feet below. Some of them stood in the windows out lined against the flames and jumped clear; others from the landings; still others from the steps where they stood. The air was full of them and they fell everywhere—into the net, on the necks of firemen, and fifteen of them on the hard stone slabs! Six girls jumped at once for a life net. and not one reached it. The screams of the girls on the upper floor afraid to take the four-story leap, with flames sweeping upon them from behind, sounded above the shouts of the firemen and the whis tling and puffing of the engines and the ringing of bells. When the awful rain ceased there were eight dead in the street, and the gutters ran red. Seven more were so badly crushed they died in hospitals. Fifty are still under surgical care. Fifteen Killed in Battle. Chihuahua, Mexico. —In an engage ment near this city. Sunday, which lasted from 9 o'clock in the morning until 2 o’clock in the afternoon, COO federal troops routed a force of 400 Maderists, driving them repeatedly from strong positions and compelling them to take to the mountains. The revolutionists lost 15 killed and many wounded. There were no fatalities on the federal side, but several, including three officers, were wounded. President's Message Important. Washington.—When Congress meets In a few’ days it will have three months in which to perform whatever may be the demands of a Republican administration. After that the fate of the Taft legislative program will de pend upon the will of a Democratic House and a Republican Senate. The success or failure of the approaching short session of Congress is believed to rest with the character of the ex ecutive message to be sent to the leg islative bodies. Many of the Repub licans, defeated in the recent elections, are not expected to carry with the best of grace the blows so harshly ad ministered. and this fact of Itself gives the President a task offering difficul ties far more complex than any tha; have been presented to an executive within years.

Christmas Shopping and Home Made Gifts BY JULIA BOTTOMLEY c HRISTMAS shopping Is an easy enough matter for possessors of plenty of money, but for the most of us Christmas time shows a great disparity between the size of our pocketbook and that of our heart—the latter Is ■o much bluer. The world ie full of pretty things, waiting to be bought by those with money enough. There Is consolation In the fact that the gift which costs time and thought, and Is a little tax on the resources of the giver, means more to the re cipient than any other. We are eager to remember our own dear people and some of our friends. Now the question Is, how much can we spend and how shall we spend it to Include them all? We will start out with mother; she should come first. A search through the shops shows a lot of pretty gifts that may be bought for little money and a greater number that may be made at home at a saving. She will appreciate our circumstances. Some good things may be found at the ten cent stores even, and they are the stronghold of the little folks who want to make a dollar go a long way. Mother will like the pretty waste paper basket shown In the picture, of white moire paper with delicate roses on It. Here may be found good looking candlesticks of clear glass, which are as pretty as those that cost three times as much. A variety of shades and candles also are for sale here and one may furnish the candle stick with candle, shade holder and shade for fifteen cents. Such candles are so pretty for her table or dress ing case and so many pretty shades may be made of paper! At the same place are paper perfume sachet with good odors, tall, clear glass vases In the plain designs, that are fine for the table or elsewhere to hold flowers or foliage. There are satin covered pin cushion forms, to be cov ered with lace or scrim or ribbon, and any number of articles for house hold use. such as tea strainers and trays. A crumb tray Is one of the best gifts to be found here, and here , are lamb's wool soles for slippers, to be crochetted and sewed to them. The A Waste Basket of Flowered Paper, Pin Cushion and Collar Bag of Bilk. ten cent store Is very well worth while for these things. Lacquer boxes, from Japan, are cheap and artistic, and very durable. Buch boxes for gloves and handker chiefs range In price from twenty-five cents to a dollar or so and are to be found In department stores. Little ' cabinets for trinkets, of the same ma terial, are seventy-five cents and up j —they are ornamental and so handy. Selecting a present that may be made at home Is easy because the , outlay of money Is usually small and the finished article a success. There are pin cushions and bags of flowered ribbon such as are shown In the pic ture. Pretty little muslin aprons and hand-made laces, made of Rennals sance braid and simple stitches. Tow els with large initial embroidered In the corner never fall to delight either mother or grandmother. Combing jackets, like that shown In the pic ture. are made of squares of figured cotton or silk or of large handker chiefs. They cost almost nothing, since one may make them of a rem nant a yard square or of four cheap cotton handkerchiefs (with pretty fig ures) and two yards of narrow satin ; ribbon. These handkerchiefs are used for short kimonos, laundry bags, sofa pillow covers, and smaller embroid ered handkerchiefs for pin cushions. Bed slippers, made of elder down flannel, make an acceptable present for an old person. Getting a present for father or grandfather taxes the thought; men’s wants seem to be so few compared to those of women. Handkerchiefs, ties and slippers are among those that cost little and are acceptable. Bill purses, for the safe carrying of tnonev, cost from 25 cents to two or more dollars. A good plain fountain pen gives a man continual satisfaction, and other articles for convenient writing he likes. There are portfolios with paper and blotters, and other articles. Desk fittings, and especially those made of Japanese antimony, are tasteful and a great convenience. These Include stamp boxes, rolling blotters, pen racks, ink wells, letter files and paper knives. They range in price from 50 cents to $2.50. A subscription to a favorite paper or magazine is a good choice. Gloves and umbrellas, the lattqr marked with the Initial, always grati ,fy the recipient. A case or 1 cigars for one who smokes suggest themselves. Among the things that may be made •at home, the list for men is not long. House jackets and slippers are dear to the heart of the man who wants !to be comfortable. Bath robes are i sot difficult to make and a great comfort. Bed slippers Tor the old are a luxury they enjoy. Young men like ties, stick pins and handkerchiefs, books and kodaks. It Is easy sailing when we start out to buy a present for grown-up or nearly grown sister. She will like all the pretty things for her dressing case, the candles, pin cushions, and a lot of little foolish things beside. Sterling silver shoe buttoners and shoe Bpoons are to be had for a quarter. Buffers, nail files, tooth brushes with silver handles, appeal to the taste for luxury which girls possess. She can never have too many dainty hankerchlefs and neck pieces, or too many gay rlbbops for her hair or lingerie. All these can The Apron of Muslin and Lacs Collar and Chemisette of Lace. be found at an expense ranging from twenty-five cents up to two or three dollars. Young girls like ornamental pic ture frames, pretty jewel cases, puff boxes and hat pin holders. These are shown In tasteful designs for fifty cents each. All girls love perfumery and sachets. They like calendars with pretty verses to hang In their rooms, and chain or mesh purses delight them. These may be bought for fifty cents to fifty dollars each. Fans are shown in a like variety. If you prefer to make a present at home nothing is more likely to delight a girl than a bedroom set for her bed, window and dressing case. These seta consist of spread with flounce, cur tains. pillow shams and cover for dressing case. Muslin and casement cloths are used for making them and cost from five to fifteen cents a yard. Fancy bands for the hair* made of ribbon or tulle, especially If bright ened with spangles, are acceptable to the girlish heart. The floating veil of chiffon and the soft scarf for the head and shoulders will make her eyes sparkle with pleasure. One has only to buy 2H or 3 yards of material and hem It, for these. Silk muslin makes lovely scarfs and may be had from thirty cents to a dollar a yard. A scarf of this fabric Is shown In the picture. Big brothers will like the same things father does and besides, he will like pictures of sports, baseball and football subjects. College flags for his room, sofa pillows, pipes and pipe racks appeal to him. He will flourish silk hosiery with great satis faction and if one may spend a suf ficient sum he likes a good suit case or the fittings for one for traveling. The younger boys and girls rarely leave us uninformed as to what they want. The girls want dolls and min iature housekeeping things. Small sets of furs please them. Hoods, leg gings and mittens, bright hair rib bons, a length of goods for a new dress and school aprons are among their gifts. Beads for the neck and handkerchiefs they treasure.
