John Haclraba Injured.
TIjis uf tcraoo.'i at ":10 a yrcat trnbli ot
f:il!ing ti:5il)crs itnl biichs s-tsrllcd tlie
whole city and lor blocks there could be
hcnrcl the fiiiflitrneil cry of "Look out''
us thij crash cninc, un J iiniuediutely there
rose a great elc.ud of dust from the Kiley
cwrin-r wliere the nim are excavntinjj for
the new hotel. Hundred of people
rushed to the scene and us the clouds of
dust, that rested only for abitoiid on the
ruins of tli9 old I'rtsbytcrian church
which had liucndug around, rose up, the
body of IVter JIattons, was vinible in the
ruins at the southeast corner of the build
and near by was John lladraba,
penned in by the body and legs by tint
bcr.s and brick. The men immediately
rushed to lladritbu's rescue and drew
him from the ruins and took him
to Dr. Li viiigritotk'a office. His
injuries were not serious. His upper
lip hid been bruised by a flying niissle
and he complained of aches ana paius in
his shoulders and body and his leys Trere
badly bruised also, but he was able to
sit up and talked freely,
The other poor victim, Peter Mattou,
was taken from the ruins unconscious,
and bareheaded. His skull was laid bare
across the top of the head also the right
fide of his head, he was crushed internal
ly which caused fatal results, he was
carried from the ruins to the sidewalk by
the Uuiou block, and then to Hick's un
dertaking rooms where hi face was
washed and the departing life watched
by Drs Shipman, Schildknccht, Cook end
Withers, lie was pronounced dead at
2:2". An inquest wus held over the body
shortly after o o'clock. Mattous wa3 a
man about fifty years old, was a native
of Uohcmia, He had been married in
the old country but emigrated to America
on the death of his wife. His Nephew
Audrew Mattous is o carpenter employed
in the B, & M. coach depaitment under
John Il.idraba, who was only injured
is a married man and lives north w-.-.t of
the high school on Viuo street. He is
about C-" years old and Ins three children
two boys and a girl, for whom it is very
fortunate that he was n i killed.
The east and north walls of the build
ing gave way and left the south an 1 west
wal!s .standinj.; in a very dangerous posi
tion, A ifing or six or eight men were

Fitzgerald. The men stood b?tvvvn the
building and the wagon. The dirt had
b.i.'ii esCM.Yiired down to the b!fipi of
the foundation and frtim tliere, with a
very little slope it had been dug down
s.-wrul feet fHrtlier. -
The wall did not fall " out I. if thp
foundation g ive way and it canys dowu
with a sudden crash. The foreman yel-U-d
"look out" and the men r:;n with or
wi'.hout their shovels, and it seems
wonderful that only one was killed, but
one was enough to make it awful.
Shovel left behind wte completely
broken up. The suddtnncss of the fall
is shown in the fact th-it Jim Fitzgerald's
team hitched to the wngon being loaded
dallied away as soon ts the ciash was
heard, but net so quick but that the

Tho Good in Uot Milk.
Few know tho valuo of hot milk not
scalding, but boiling hot. It is wonderfully I
revising if a nttlo fatigued or chilly from a
long drive. Taken at bed timo it often se
cures to a restless, nervous person immediate
and comfortable sleep, and for an early 1
waker, if taken before too long awake, will 1
secure- another restful nap. It is, too, more
nourishing and more easily digested by tho
weak stomach of an invalid than if given
cold, and is good alike for young and old.
