S.-An-tht-r nam haa been added to the long death lint -resulting from the Duquesn Limited wreck on-the Baltimore A Ohio railroad at Dawson on Wednesday. Harry I Devlin, one of the three remaining pallenta at the Cottage state hospital, died at 10 o'clock today. The total dead now numbers slxty-Cve and this probably completes the j list as the two still at the hospital ara doing well , and will probably recover. Devlin's boms was at Lenaconlng, Md. There wss one Christmas funeral, that of Edison Ooldsmlth. Goldsmith was a popu lar young man and an Immense concourse attended the service. The bodies of the ' other- Connellsvllle victims will be held until Saturday or Sunday before burial. In fact this la a necessity as the undertakers are too busy to attempt to conduct several funerals In a day. Siieclal services for the dead were held In all the Protestant churchea of the coka regions today, . and alter the burial of Father Flnello which Will take place to morrow, the Catholic churches will hold masses for the desd. Um body of Father Flnello was conveyed to th main body of the church of the Immaculate Conoep.ljn this morning, where it will remain In state until the funeral services on Satur day., Bodies Betas; Removed. The bodies of about thirty of the victims were' gathered up and taken away on early trains today. The remaining identified will be Shipped within .the- next twenty-four hour and the ' "unknown" will be cared for by the borough council. President Oeorge a. -Porter has called a special meeting to take measures .toward the formation of a relief committee to look after bodies unidentified1 or unclaimed.

It is quite within the bounds of possibili ties that an author could) create such char acters as fit his purpose; In fact, thfa Is a most common practice, but aa a rule he must have or pretend to hav some sort of beginning for his thought. And Mr. Wil son ha conceived and Mr. Rose embodied some of the most unlovable people Imagin able, so that It Is much more comforting to think that those who appertain to' the east are as broadly exaggerated as-Hhom alleged to represent the west In th other wise excellent comedy - they havo Jointly prepared.

And, If this be the Judgment as to the char acter In the play with which we of th west are supposed to have persona knowledge, th exclusion Is both easy and Justified that He presentation of eastern person ality is not more accurate.

Th score was 23 to 0. Ideal weather con dition prevailed and the field fWaa In splendid condition .for. speedy playing. . tjnpiain. Johnson of the ' visiting .eleven lived up to his reputation as being one of the greatest quarterbacks and foot' ball generals in the country, and the star ag gregation of the coast players were no match for bis well drilled men. The at tendance was about 7,000. The partisan ship was equally divided at the outset, but at the conclusion of the game the admira tion for the Redskins grew so Intense that Captain Johnson was carried aloft, on th shoulders of the- throng, after '.several women had become so enthusiastic as to embrace him. DuHng the first few minutes of play the All-Callfornlans ' swept the Indians .before them, and for a few moments it lqoked as though the home team would nave a walkover. But the ball soon moved to th Callfornlans' territory as soon as the In dlans resorted to trick plays, after having found that they could not successfully buck the line of a team that weighed twenty pound heavier 'to the roan. .' Captain Johnson made the first touch down about the middle of the first half, but failed to kick a goal. The shiftiness of the Indians pusxled the California men greatly and they 'were unable to solve the generalship of th Redskins' captain'. Be. tween Johnson and Williams, the 'Carlisle fullback, the local men were kept gues)ng. During the second half the Carlisle men resumed their shifty tactics and made hun dreds of yards on clever football. . Johnson took the ball for most of the trick plays and kicked every goal In th last half. The California men rallied near th close of the game and spent their force Jn fierce bucks against the Carlisle line. This line of action soon tired the Call fornlans end they were unable to score although, within fifteen yards of th arllBle goal peats. . . i EVENTS ON RUNNING TRACKS Wltfal Adds Another to Her string of Victories la Christmas Haadtcay. .

More than one dime-novel publishing firm haa made a fortune at the business of pro viding literature for Young America and that in the day when they paid a writer from 275 to 2260 for a story.
