One of the passengers who raced into port on the White Star liner Canopic was Mrs. K. Lange,' who arrived in the city from Boston yesterday to visit her Bister, Mrs. Edward Dunghi, whose hus band is a member of, the firm of Ossola & Punghi, granite manufacturers. Mrs. Lange is able to join with the 1,062 other passengers in telling stories of the suf fering occasioned by the European strife and she bore her share of the worry while the great boat, shrouded as all Bteamships are nowadays, picked its way from Gibraltar across the Atlantic under forced draught and entered the port of Boston Sunday, two days ahead of time. At her sister's home. 531 North Main ftreet, Mrs. Lange was still recovering from the excitement of the voyage when a reporter got her story. 'We left Genoa Aug. 1 with 74 pas sengers," Mrs. Lange began, "and sailed from Naples three days later with 089 additional, who had engaged berths at the last minute. The passengers were in fear of capture from the moment they left the Italian port, as there, were re ports of the activities of German cruisers in the vicinity, and one of the passen gers, sailing on auother vessel, a few days before, had been brought to a coast town as ft prisoner on a cruiser of the enemy. For a few hundred miles after leaving Gibraltar, the Canopic was con voved by a British cruiser. The captain, J.'B. Kelk, was warned to keep away from the Azores, and in following these instructions a detour of 3(H) miles waM made around the islands. Once the op eratcr heard a wireless message tmauaaaaaa? from one of the islands to a German cruiser asking for the whereabouts of the Brit ish steamer." In her own way, Mrs. Lange tells of the precautions taken to avoid discovery. From the day Gibraltar was passed, the sides of the ship were covered with can vas to keep the light th by night. Sucn a pr.?cautionwas hardly necessary, how ever, for the electric bulbs in all the outer staterooms were removed to pre vent the passengers from showing a light at any time. The captain, it was re ported, feared a sympathizer of the en emy might be aboard and show a light which could be " seen from a distanw, were it not for the side of the canvas. Wireless reports were received daily giv ing the positions of the German cruisers. The passengers were not advised of the war developments until three days before reaching port, and consquently much un certainty resulted. On the Wednesday night before the arrival in Boston, the passengers held a meeting to consider the war situation and to ask the United States government to relieve Americans abroad. A letter with many signatures was forwarded to President Wilson lat er. In sharp contrast to the pecuniary condition in which many of the passengers found themselves, Mrs. Lange WAS W ell supplied with funds and en tered irpon the voyage with the knowl edge that she might have trouble in reaching America. She was anxious to be. with her sister, however, and now that she is here she plans to stay, at least until the war is ended. See the, new belts at Vaughan'a. Buy "Regular" flou at the Kempton mills.

MacNabb, Fugitive from State Prison. Chelsea, Aug. 20. Great excitement has prevailed here since last .Friday, arising from the fact that notice was given the officials here on that day that Orlo S. MacNabb, who had been a resi dent here for the past six years and who was early in July, last committed to the state prison at Windsor to serve a sentence of from three to five years for obtaining money under false pre tense had on that day made his escape from the prison. On Saturday evening officials from the prison arrived in town and after being closeted with the local officers for a short time proceeded to the residence of Eugene H. Kennedy in the "upper vil lage," where they policed that end of the town during the remainder of the night, expecting from information which came to them concerning MacXabb'a plans that hp would as soon as pos- I sible nftpr his escape make his way to Mr. Kennedy s wily the hope that he might get aid in the way of food, cloth ing or money, since he had worked for Mr. Kennedy a greater part of the. time during his residence in town. Xot'iing was seen of him by the officers during the right and on Sunday they made preparations for a larger force to aist them Sunday night and as darkness gathered they proceeded to the north end of the town again and went straight to Mr. Kennedy and made known their plans which resulted from the informa tion they had received. Mr. Kennedy gave them the liberties of his house and all iiis buildings and assured them that he would like tj have the fugitive rap tured and returned to the prison where he belonged. Monday morning dawned but MacNabb had not shown up during the night, and the officers believing that their informa tion may have been a blind, left for Windsor." On Tuesday noon Sheriff E. W. Kent, who was in town to attend the necil session of court on that day, "got wind" of the fact that MacXabb'a cap was found near Kennedy's buildings parly Tuesday morning. With this in formation hp organized a posp or 20 of ficers and men and proceeded to the "north end" and upon their arrival Mr. Kenmdy's houe barn, and two mills pre immediately surrounded and a thor ough search was begun, to which Mr. kenm-dy'a houw, ham. and two mills we aked concerning MacNabb' rap he told the ofTi.-ers that MacNabb arrived at his hniice about 10 o'clock Monday fienme and rapped on his bedroom win do and akpd him to come to the back door, to which call Mr. Kennedy repnd pd. He stated to the nffin that Mac NabS asked for hi- clothes which wpre there, and for moiwy. and that both re niiets were denied him and said furthpr that he adied MacNabb to give him self up and iflT lnhnnnff with him for some time, be Mid. the fugitive t-grppd to d it and a'ked him if he woul lu't gi" '',m bafp headeo and t this request Mr. Krnn'lr yielded and gave him an old rap and !" 1 1 pr rd m the diiine bead ed fr Vindor as Mr. KpnnPdr put it. s be aid b did not want t- give him self up to the l'"l officers.
