Women Describe Scene of Horro
. Following the Earthquake.
Mrs. Maria A. Willcor, Mrs. Mary
Longstreet, Mrs. Frank. Hicks and Al
fred Willcox, who recently arrived at
Los Angeles from San Francisco, had
been quartered on the eighth floor of
the San Francisco hotel and found the
hotel rocking like a ship. Mrs. Long
street told the story thus:
"Suddenly, as we were standing
there, the entire city seemed to catch
fire. In all directions and as far as
we could see the great tongues of
flame leaped into the air. Terrified as
we were, we stood by the window, and
in less time than It takes to tell it the
entire part of the city between us and
the ferry was ablaze. It was a beauti
ful yet terrible sight. We remained in
the hotel till 10 o'clock, and at that
time Mr. Willcox succeeded in getting
a carriage and an automobile. We then
left the hotel nnd drove to the borne of
a friend a mile away. When we got
there we found the house in ruins.
"We then went to the home of the
Tevises and remained there until we
were driven out by fire. Finally we
found refuge at the residence of J. F.
WInslow on Nob bill. We slept on the
floor that" night, but they bad no food,
and after scouring the city over my
brother managed to purchase ten ship's
biscuits and four boxes of sardines,
and after eating these we made beds
on the floor and tried to sleep. We had
a little candle in our room and ihat we
did not need.
"The hundreds of fires made the city
light as day, but it was a ghastly, sick
ening glow that made one tremble
with fear. Words cannot describe hu
man emotions at such a time as that,
and I wish I could shake off that feel
ing that has cluug to me ever since
the first shock of that earthquake
aroused me from my slumber.
"I saved some things three pairs of
shoes, I believe. I put the shoes In a
grip and brought them along. My
diamonds and money I left in the ho
tel. But we all did that. No one at
such times cares for personal effects.
We expected death at any minute nnd
were surprised that it did not come.
Can yenx wonder thnt I saved the shoes
instead of my valuables?
"That night was awful. We could
hear the cries of the suffering people
and the crash of falling buildings all
night long. Van Ness avenue was
crowded from side to side with people
mothers carrying babies, men and
women packing on their backs what
few things they bad managed to save.
Where all those people found food and
shelter I cannot imagine. We had no
water and almost died from thirst.
"You would never know San Fran
cisco now. It Is nothing but ruins.
Did you ever see a child build a house
with blocks and then knock it down?
Well, that is the way buildings fell all
over the city during the earthquake."
"I cannot describe it," said Mrs. Will
cox when asked for her experience.
T woke at the first tremble, and, oh.
what a terrible sensation! Plaster fell
from the walls, and I expected at any
second to see the St. Francis hotel
crumble to the earth. With the earth
quake came that horrible roar. It
sounded like thousands of violins be
ing played on the bass strings and all
at a discord.
"Did you ever see the picture of hell
which hangs In .the Santa Barbara
mission? It was something like that,
only a thousand times worse. We had
a hard time getting to Oakland, where
we caught a train. The railroad peo
ple deserve great credit. Once on the
train we were shown every courtesy.
If people did not have money they
were taken along just the same. Mon
ey was no object at that time."
CURIOUS CHINESE DENS.
Hundred Feet Deep
Bare bf Fire.
"Strange Is the scene where San
Francisco's Chinatown stood." says
W. W. Overton, who reached Los An
geles recently from San Francisco.
"No heap of smoking ruins marks the
site of the wooden warrens where the
orientals dwelt in thousands. Only a
cavern remains, pitted with deep holes
and lined with dark passageways, from
whose depths come smoke wreaths.
"White men never knew the depth of
Chinatown's underground city. Many
had gone beneath the street level two
and three stories; but now that China
town has been unmasked men may see
where Its Inner secrets lay. In places
one can see passages a hundred feet
deep. The .Are swept this Mongolian
"From this place I saw hundreds of
crazed yellow men flee. In their arms
they bore opium pipes, money bags,
silks and children. Beside them ran
the trousered women, and some hob
bled painfully. These were the men
and women of the surface. Far be
neath the street levels in those cellars
and passageways were other lives.

their darkened prisons, and their blink

Informs of Gambling. Captain

Interurban Companies in Field.
Davenport promises soon to have more
companies bidding for the chance to
build an interurban between here and
Muscatine than there were three years
ago, competing for the opportunity to
build one to Clinton. At least three
companies are understood to be laying
plans for connecting us with the south
ern neighbor. Of course, such a line
would not stop at Muscatine. Either
via Muscatine of independently, it is
safe to predict that in two or three
years Davenport will have an interur

E. G. McArthur and his deputies have
arrived at the conclusion that the

the horse thief now awaiting the ac

rest they have learned that he is
wanted in two other counties. Claii
jumped into a buggy belonging to
Henry Wiese, which was hitched in
front of the East Davenport Turnei
hall and ran off with it. He was
caught, however, the s-ame afternoon a
short distance east of the city and
brought back here. Then he was tak

Hanging clothes in the sunshine has a renovating, sweetening:, whitening tendency, but their
color and condition after washing depend upon the soap used. Yellow soap, heavily charged with
destroying chemicals and ruinous alkali, leaves them more or less discolored and unsightly. But
when Maple City Self-Washing Soap is used, the clothes are sure to be as pure and clean and
white as falling snow. It has the effect of bleaching white goods in a most wonderful way.

requires no rubbing. As the name implies, it actually does all the work itself in the boiling procesw.
Maple City Soap is a white bar, made from the purest materials obtainable, and though it is

Moran of Clinton county notified Sher

The Quality of the Malt decides the body of a beer. TMatZ Malt is produced in the brewery's own malt house by
trained Malsters (years in Blata service). "Not only hoW much malt-but hoW good" is here the inviolable
rule. This method is expensive, but the desired result is always achieved the Vital ingredients of the malt are
thereby brought out and retained. To the Blatz malt is due the prevailing: full-bodied State of VlatZ 'Deer.
The Hops used in the brewing of Blatz Beer are rich in aromatic properties and. tonics (hopbitters), which
lend to the beer that fragrance which captivates lovers of the beverage. The tonics act as a mild stimulant to the
digestion. Blatz Beer is perfectly fermented and ripened in the coldest and cleanest cellars extant.
The most skilled masters zealously guard "Blatz" individuality. The paramount object being to maintain
with absolute uniformity every characteristic that has these many years meant "Blatz Quality.
