Several Are Scorched by Burning Lav -Twelve Reach Rim of Cra ter After Being Nearly Over come by Deadly Gases. Guadalajara, Mexico. Thoroughly exhausted, their hands, feet and less burned by contact -with red-hot rocks and lava and suffering as the result of having Inhaled sulphurous gases for several hours, 12 delegates to the in ternational geological congress , have returned here after an ascent of the Co lima Volcano, the only continuous ly active volcano in North America. The party includes W. Harvey Weed, of Washington, D. C " The Washing ton man reached the . crater of the volcano, 13,000 feet above the level of the sea. In the last 100 years not more than six men have succeeded in reaching Colima's crater. On account of the precipitous character of the mountain and the thick covering of sand and ashes the ascent of Colima is regard ed as one of the most dangerous in the world. The deadly gases that issue from the crater and the possi mlity of a violent eruption at any time make the ascent doubly perilous. The last man to attempt to reach the crater was Dr. Peter H. of Harvard university. He . Goldsmith. He failed, and announced that it was practically ini- possible to get as far as the crater. Thirt5"-nve geologists Started to make the ascent of the volcano. At a cost of $1,000 the state government built a house especially for their ac- J commodation at the foot of the rnoun- j tain. The entire 35 climbed as far j as the end of the timber line, and I there 23 lost courage and turned back. The remaining 12 struggled for six hours to reach the crater. Long poles were used to determine footholds, as great pits of sand and ashes each of them capable of ingulfing dozens of men. exist along Colima's sides. The climbers were half blinded by smoke and steam and in constant danger from the deadly gases, but they per severed, and finally reached the rim of the crater. At the crater's edge they encountered hot rocks and lava. imvnu uul au -" vious night, and these burned through shoes, leggms and gloves. Through v. - ; v. fear of suffocation, the geologists re mained but a few minutes at the crater. They were able to reach the timber line before night overtook them, and they camped on the moun- tain side until the following morn- , seives to restrict or discourage by dis-iig- I eriminatinsr taxation the exnortation The Colima volcano is 125 miles southwest of this city, in about the same latitude as the City of Mexico, and approximately 75 miles from the nearest point of the Pacific coast. For centuries no one ' knows how many Colima has been active, and during the last 300 years, at least. violent periods have been frequent and often prolonged. During these pe- J rioas oi violence me Mexican volcano i Decomes tne rival oi esuvius as a ; spectacular performer.

Often the fall of sand and ashes is so dense as to cause extreme darkness during the daylight hours in the vicinity of the volcano. Those who climbed to the crater of Colima are: W. Harvey Weed, Wash ington, D. C; John E. Wolf, Boston; E. O. Hovey, New York; Rudolf Ruede- mann, Albany, N. Y.; H. F. Cleland, Williamston. Mass.; H. F. Reed, Balti more; Fraud D. Adams and J.

Shamokin, Pa, Having lost a large number of cattle during the last year, and believing a neighbor thought by some of the superstitious to be a witch was causing him bad luck, Joseph Gottshalk, a prosperous Mahanoy val ley farmer, has signed a contract with a woman in this city to give him pro tection for one year. The woman is alleged to possess the powers of witch craft. Gottshalk will pay her a reg ular salary for her protection. In 12 months he has lost, through sickness and accident, many cows, horses and pigs, although his barn was a model nf sanitation. Since Gottshalk first called on this woman protector the illness in his stock has ceased, and he is enthusiastic over the venture. Finds Horns of Irish Elk. Dublin. While cutting turf on a bog In County Limerick, a laborer came on the horns of an Irish elk, and. carefully digging, exhumed the head and. antlers of a magnificent speci men of this great deer, where it had lain for centuries, preserved by the peat. The horns measure from tip to tip eight feet two inches. It is in a wonderful state of preservation, con sidering the Deriod of time which had elapsed since these animals existed. &3 no authentic time or satisfactory theory is forthcoming when they lived or what caused-their extinction. Ire- land was, undoubtedly, its home. DEDICATE BABE TO LABOR. Chicago Parents Think This Best Way to Make Him Unselfish. Chicago. Lee Gessner Creel, the 19-months-old son of H. H. Creel, has been dedicated to the cause of labor with solemn ceremony. The dedication took place at St.' James Methodist church with .the Allied Printing Trades Council as a sort of collective godfather. Trades unionists filled the pews and the Rev. D. C. Millner officiated as the repre sentative of the church and labor, while R. R, Wright, president of Typo graphical Union No. 16, assisted and the Rev. William A. Quayle, pastor of the church made the address of wel come. L. P. Strauble, secretary of the Allied Printing Trades Council, ac cepted the child on behalf of labor as a future champion of the cause. Creel and his wife both expressed their desire that the boy shall become an unselfish man, giving his life to others. They declared that in their opinion organized labor was the cause which realized the best ideals of help to humanity. The dedicating of the child, they said, was merely the expression of a desire which all true mothers and fathers must feel in regard to their children. The idea came to Creel be cause of his many years connection with labor organizations and publi cations . May MacDowell. Eva Marshall Shouts and Jane Addams. all sociolog ical workers, were present.

PECULIAR CASE IS DECIDED. Bigamist's First Wife Gets Half of Estate and Second Nothing. T-ivi vran Toi-oi t.iHm tv.l lock has revered a decision in an unusual case that came up from Comanche county. It was the result of a bigamous marriage by 3ames Mc Laughlin. McLaughlin was an old soldier who deserted his wife in Pennsylvania, and, coming to Kansas with a young woman named Annie Scott, married ; her and lived with her 30 years, raising Lht h,mrn TTnnn his th th second wife, who says she knew noth ing of his previous marriage, applied for a pension, and this led to the dis covery of wife No. 1. The court decided that the Penn sylvania wife was entitled to half the estate and that McLaughlin's children by his second wife were entitled to the other half, while the second wife was entitled to nothing, though it was largely through her efforts that the property was accumulated. EARLY DINNER IS DECREED. King Edward Causes Change in Lon don Society. London. A momentous change has been decreed in the habits of Lon don society, initiated by the king. His majesty disapproved of the tendency to make the dinner hour later and later, and has decreed that nereafter the fashionable dinner hour shall be from half past six to half past seven. Before this change was instituted society dined from eight to nine. The new dinner hour, which is a return to earlier manners, is welcomed by everybody. It will benefit the thea ters, which have lost many patrons through the late dinner hour, and it will also send more persons to the restaurants for supper. Persons who dined at eight o'clock were not always inclined for supper afterward, and could not reach the theater before the middle of the per formance. Pays One Cent, Gets $10,000. London. The heirs of one of the victims of the Grantham railroad dis aster have received $10,000 insurance, which was effected at a cost of one penny.

The day of the disaster he sent his valise, containing a current copy of the paper, duly signed, to the hotel at Retford, where he expected to pass the night. With 'n a few hours of his death the claim as examined, allowed and settled. MANY DIE ON RAILS TRAINS KILL 26 PERSONS DAILY, SAYS GOVERNMENT REPORT.
