There were twenty-six men at
work on the building, and their es

buildings were blown down at the
steel plant in the south part of the
city, and a section of one of the
barge works building was carried
away. Chimneys were blown down
and considerable minor damage
was done. There is no means of ac

building, which had had about

story building at Third street and
Lamborn avenue, to get out of the
building, and twelve jumped from
windows. At the same moment a
number of passersby ran into the
structure to escape the storm. As
they entered, the building, without
an instant's tremor or warning,
collapsed, burying seventeen men.
The structure did not move a foot
from its foundation. It simply flat

HUNDRED SAW THE CATASTROPHE
and the work of rescue began at
once. The ruins stood tiot six feet
above the ground and the roof
seemed to cover the whole, greatly
retarding the work of rescue. It
was ati hour before the first bod)',
that of Herman Roussey, was re
covered. He was found in a sitting
position, bent nearly double, with
splinters driven into his hand and
almost every bone in his body was
broken. John Latter was found on
his back with four timbers lying
across him, cutting his bod)' into
as many pieces.
IT WAS A HORRIBLE SIGHT,
and the other workmen sickened in
removing the body. Schofieldwas
found in what evidently had been
a room on the third floor and he
was still alive, though he died as
soon as the weight was removed
from him, his back being broken.
It was over an hour before another
body was found. The two injured
men were then gotten out. Semple
was wedged between two upright
timbers and that saved his life.

A few months ago the foreign residents
of Foochow, in the Chinese province of
Fo-Kien, were treated to the curious
spectacle of a wheelbarrow apotheosis.
Hundreds of almond eyed admirers
gathered about the novel monocycle,
turned it over and over, trundled it along
amid shouts of exultation and surrounded
its proprietor with the liveliest demon
strations of approval. That enthusiastic
appreciation of mechanical achievements
seems not easy to reconcile with the fact
that four or five new China railways
were demolished by an excited mob, but
the truth seems to be that the mechan
ism of a locomotive passes the compre
hension of the average Mongol, and that
the motion of a steam engine is apt to
be ascribed to witchcraft. Philadelphia

A remarkable display of courage and

young woman fell from the railroad sta

ly rolled the imperiled woman off the
tracks under the platform, leaving him
self with insufficient time to get up and
out of the way. He realized his danger
instantly, and throwing himself full
length between the tracks the train
passed without harming him in the
