The home-coming of James S. Sher
man was mado the occasion of such a
demonstration at Utlca as has rarely
hceii soon In the Empire state.
The welcome to the Ropubllcan candU
dato for vlco presidential honors was
a non-partisan affair and to a great
extent personal, for the congressman's
recovery from his recont somewhat
alarming Illness gavo added reason for
public rejoicing on his safo return.
Mr. Sherman, accompanied by Mrs.

from Starting Point In Chicago.
Tho "Chicago to ocean" long dis
tance balloon race ended Sunday night,
when the last of tho nine contestants
came to earth at West Shefford, Que.,

thrilling escapes from drowning. The
Ville do Dieppe dropped Into Lake

an hour or moro Colonel A. 15. Mueller
and George Schoeneck, its occupants,
wero swept across the surface, finally
arising with their craft to a height or
7,000 feet, from which they descended
to Denton Harbor, Mich.
A similar experience fell to the lot
of C. H. Perlgo and J. D. Case, crew
of the Illinois. While endeavoring to
effect a landing near Lake Ontario,
their balloon fell into tho Bay of
Quinte. The aeronauts had donned
life preservers and managed to keep
afloat until a yacht put off from Glen

their balloon Is not known, Per
igo's message to his family stating
simply that he and Case were safe.

Tho flro followed an explosion ot
flroworks on display In tho storo.
Opinions differ as to tho exact cause
of tho explosion. A woman who was
at tho fireworks counter said the
stock was ignited by sparks from a
dcvlco which was being demonstrated
to her by a clerk. Flro Chief Wallace
and tho storo managor wero of the
opinion that tho pieces woro Ignited

Tho Btore, which Is located near
tho busiest corner In tho downtown
district, was well filled with shop

Practically all of tho clorka woro
young girls. Although tho explosion
of the fireworks caused consternation,
the real panic did not occur until
Bomo one shouted "Fire."
For an Instant a hush camo over
tho crowd. Then women screamed,
soino fainted and sudden fear over
came them. Crazed by the possibility
of death, all on tho main floor rushed
to tho front and rear doors. Quickly
they wero Jammed In tho. front door
way. During tho jam those who had
attempted to escape by tho rear door
were blocked In their progress. Tho
back door was too small for all who
sought safety thero and tho rear win
dows wero closed with Iron bars.
Those who could not escape in this
direction, turned to tho front door.
While practically every ono on tho
main floor was able to leavo without
Injury through the front door, it was
mainly because of the Jam nt that
door that tho seven unfortunato onos
lost their lives. Two of tho clerks,
seeing no possibility of Immediate es

basement. Tho basement windows
also wero barred with iron, nnd tholr
return to the main floor was cut off
by the npproach of tho flames. Tho
other women, again forced to tho
rear of tho store by tho approaching
flames, finally sought safety under a
counter, whoro their bodies wero
found two hours after tho explosion.
The five women had been Buffocated.

The horror of the situation was
added' to by Are, which broke out in
the shaft. It penetrated the Inner

distance, from behind heaps of fallen
debris, could be heard cries for help
all day. Fifty-three moro bodies were
taken out, all horribly mutilated.
Some of the men had been burned to
death, while the heads and limbs of
others had been torn off by the forco
of tho explosion. Seventy-five wound
