June C To the instinct of a child, perhaps inherited from our simian antecedents, to grasp the near est object, is attributed today the sav ing of the life of three year old Eois r razier, seated in an automobile struck by a Southern Pacific train liear Clackamas Station. The automobile, containing the child, her mother, Mrs. RuUy E. Frazier, and Mrs. James Einn of 1170 E. Tavlor street, and her two children, 7 and 5 respectively, went dead on the railroad track with the train approaching. All of the occupants with the exception of the girl either jumped or were lifted from the machine. After the crash no trace of the child could be found in the . wreckage of the automobile. A search of the engine revealed iittle Eois clinging to a brace rod running from the boiler to the pilot bed. She had instinctively grabbed it when the en gine struck. One of her bgs was brok en but she was otherwise uninjured. Child Left Behind. The older people in the auto leaped to the ground and, -just as Mr, Einn made a rach for the i.ttle Frazier girl, the crash tamo. The auto was hurle-d to the right of the engino as distance of forty feet, and tue baby was literally picked up and placed on the pilot of the engine. The tot grasped hold of the rods which run from the boiler to the pilot bed, and clung there. In the meantime the train crew was making a frantic tcarch under the wrecked anto for the bo W which they supposed was mangled, while Mrs. trazier was. streaming that her baby had been killed. The mail messenger on the train first riifhed to the front of the engine, and there he found little Lois hanging , SCHUMANN-HEINKE IS death causs colony AFFAIRS IWOMAN SENDS POISONED 20 000 1 WOMEN ARE M-N N Hr I .III 1 1 niubiciiLN dies todat llimmift Tllir PAMRV AMII 10 ADDCOTCn Rapp's Hugs and Kisses All Given To Mrs. Kate Dean, Says Deposition of Trained Nurse.

Mrs. Dean, said tho deposition, ad dressed Kapp as "Billy" and Rapp called Mrs. Dean "Nonnio". A number of letters and telegrams were also introduced. One letter from Chicago, signed "Hilly", referred -to "Xonnie" as "sweet clover" and de clared that the writer missed her "aroma in this city of stockyard smells." The letters' author evidently thought considerably of "aromas" and "-sweet clover", for in another letter ho said: "This morning's mail brought me a windfall- three letters from you.

One ol the telegrams addressed to Mrs. Dean was as follows: "I hereby certify that you are the best girlie ever, l.ove. Greetings. Billy."

Until a week ago tast Thursday she appeared to be in the best of health, aud reports that a sudden attack of the disease had confined her to her bed seemed almost unbelievable.
