Tribute to the
Even John Philip Sousa, the great bandmaster, who lias no usr for
Phonographs, has been forced to recognize the Phonograph as a for
midable competitor. The two-step king says that people will no
longer go to concerts if they can have music in their own homes so
easily and so cheaply as they can with the Phonograph. This is an
unwilling tribute, but it is nevertheless a tribute. The man who has
, a Phonograph has a concert in his own. house. Even a king could not
have more. At our store you can hear them any time.

Making Terrific Speed.
. Tho lrepk. occurred exactly at
2:. 1,1 "o'clock." one hour and foity-flvc
minutes after the conclave visitors,
forming a merry party, had spent all
the morning sightseeing in Santa Bar
bara. The statement that the train
was making terrific speed when it
struck the defective track Is borne out
by the fact that it covered the sixty
one miles of curves and crooked
track between here and Honda in ex
actly 100 minutes.
There was no warning of the Im
pending calamity. The special plunged
upon the defective switcli and in an
instant the big locomotive, baggage
car, diner and Pullman coupled with
it were hurled together in a huge heap
of wreckage. The engine shot for
ward on the broken track, tearing up
the rails and ties and twisting
the, huge iron upans into fish hooks.
The dining car. In which were thirty-two
people eating their noonday
meal, leaped into the air and was
thrown directly on top of the demol
ished locomotive. Nearly every per
son in this coach was Instantly killed.
Scores were scalded by steam escap
ing from disconnected pipes In the
kitchen of the diner.
The terror and turmoil of the sceno
was indescribable. Many of those
who escaped instant death by the first
impact were crushed by the rear
coaches hurled upon the wreckage.
Others, pinioned in the debris, were
roasted alive. The wreckage caught
fire from the coals of the engine, but
was extinguished in a few minutes by
the passengers who escaped injury.
Engineer Frnnk Champlain was
pitched, with his cab, twenty-five
I eei beyond the engino nnd got up
and ran three-quarters of a mile, seek
ing help, b"lore he discoveied that hla
aim was broken and that he was se
verely scalded. A man standing be
hind bib wife In the baggage car was
hurled through a huge rent In the
ifjor and alighted In soft nnd yielding
sand, almost uninjured. The woman
was forced through the floors and
T3ckers had to lift tons or hnggugo
to g't her body out.
But the unfortunates who occupied
every seat in the dining car wore
caught in a veritable death trap. Only
two of the nine of the crew of the
diner are numbered among the dead.
The leinalnder. though cooped up In
the narrow kitchen and pantry, sus
tained but a few cuts and bruises.
Rajah temple. of Heading occupied
the last car on the train and were tho
last ones to go forward to the diner.
The car was filled almost entirely with
Heading people when the wreck oc
cuned. An instant after the smash
those who were not rendered insensi
ble or otherwise incapacitated by the
terrible Impact. Jumped from the train
to render aid, but the gruesome scone
before tlieni unfitted many for the
work they had to do in the long hours
heroic relief nrrived. Frightened wom
en, peering through the windows of
the undamaged sleeper, fainted when
they saw' the bodies of their friends
strewn along the roadside, blood from
the gaping wounds staining the sand
drifts all about. Men who toiled hard
at the task of rescue collapsed com
pletely, many of them before the
work was finished.

I emptied both barrels and may have
II red four or live times afterwards.
Mrs Coppie came rustling out and I
shot her twice on the doorstep. Then
I went into the house nnd stayed with
the children until 4 o'clock, when I
locked them in a room and went out.
I took a mule from the barn and rod.,
seven miles down Logan creek, where
I left the animal. I have been wan
dering over the country since."
Burke sat apparently unmoved while
he told what ho had done. He was ap
parently numb and sleepy from tho
