Were Women CoaN-sville, Pa., Aug 13. Zacharia Walker, a negro desperado, was carried on a cot from the hospital here to-night and Lurried to acri.-p by a frenzied mob. The uegro, w ho last night shot and kil!d Edward Rice, a special policeman of the Worth iron mills, was first dragged to the scene of the shooting, begging pite- ousily for mercy. He had been arrested by a posse late this afternoon after a search which had stirred the countryside. The posse finally found him hiding in a cherry tree. The uegro, with the last bullet in his revolver, shot himself in .the mouth, falling from the tree. He was removed to the hospital and placed un der guard. A few minutes after 'J o'clock a crowd numbering almost 1,000 persons ap peared at the hospital. The leaders were denied admission, but they quickly smashed the window frames and crawled through into the corridor. When the negro as first taken to the hospital he was strapped down in order to prevent his escape. The mob, seeing this, gath ered up the bed and, placing it ou the shoulders of four men, started for the country. When half a mila from the hospital they entered a field and, quick ly gathering up a pilo of dry grass and weeds, placed the bed containing their victim upon it. A match was applied and the flames shot up quickly, entirely enshrouding the screaming victim. That not a vestige of the murderer be left, the mob tore down the fence along the road and piled the rails upon the burn ing negro. Cars Turned Over. Fort Wayne, Ind. August 13.

A warnkig against the dangers of dust was is.Mied in a statement made by the National Association for the Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis, in which is shown that the percentage of deaths cau.ed by tuberculosis in dusty trades is more than double that of all employed men in the registration area of the Un ited States. As result of the dangers from con sumption to those exposed to various forms of dust, and at the request of the National Association, the United States Government has recentlv ap pointed a commission to work in co-operation with State authorities in making an investigation into the conditions of the metal mining industries in the Un ted States, with special reference to dis eases of the lungs. The work of the commission engaged in this special task will follow lines somewhat similar to those worked out by the Royal Com mission of Australia, whose report was recently received in this country. "Dusts are of three kinds' says the. National Association; "factory, street and house dusts." Tho statement re fers to the results obtaiued through in vestigations made for the Bureau of La bor, by Frederick L. Hoffman. While among males generally in the registra tion area of the United States. 14.5 per cent of all deaths are from consump tion, the mortality among grinders from this disease is 49.2 per cent, and in hardly any of the dusty trades is it below 25 per cent. The percentage of deaths from tuberculosis among those exposed to metalic dust is 3G.9 per cent; to mineral dust, 28.8 per cent; to mixed animal and other forms of dust, 32.1 per cent; to street dust, 25.5 per cent; and to organic, or dust coming from the articles being manufactured, 23 per cent. The statement speaks also of the dan gers from house dust, especially in rooms that are not well ventilated. The Asso ciation warns against dry sweeping, and against the use of the feather duster, or other devices that scatter," but do not take up the dust. Since the ordinary dust blown about in the streets is impregnated with dis ease germs, the National Association urges the adoption of methods that will prevent the further dissemination of such bacilli. It also urges for the com ing months of fall and winter, more open windows and more fresh air in house, shop and schoolroom. --overload cars V cm.it intast o Sit omc to 4 ma. e room. eeee L.
