Tribute to the
Even John Philip Sousa, the great bandmaster, who has no use 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.

TWO BAGS OF POWDER EXPLODE
IN ONE OF SHIP'S TURRETS.
Eight-Inch Charge Ignited and Entire
Turret Crew, Consisting of Three
Officers and Eighteen Men, Envei-
..oped In Fire, Receive Terrible Burns.
Boston, July 16. With eight of her
ofllcers and crew dead and thirteen
others either dying or suffering trom
terrible burns received In an explo
sion of powder in the after super-lm-rosed
turret, the battleship Georgia
steamed slowly up Boston harbor from
the target practice grounds In Capo
Cod bay and landed the dead and in
jured men at the Charlestown navy
With the arrival of the Georgia
there became known the details of tho
most terrible naval catastrophe that
has ever taken place along the coast
of New England.
In some manner, as yet unexplained,
two 100-pound hags of powder becamo
ignited and in tho terrible flash that
followed tho entire turret crew, con
sisting of three ofllcers and eighteen
men, were enveloped In fire and re
ceived horrible burns, one officer und
five men dying before the ship reached ;
Men Screamed in Agony.
Blinded by tho smoke and flames,
choked by the acrid, penetrating
gaseous lumes and maddened with
pain, the men screamed In agony.
Some staggered blindly up tho ladder
to the hatchway in the top of the tur
ret, while others crept along the tur
ct floor, begging plteously for assist
ance. Lieutenant Goodrich and Seaman
Maleck became crazed, staggered up
tho iron ladder to the top of the turret
nnd then threw themselves headlong
into the sea, In a despairing effort to
choose a death by drowning In prefer
ence to death by slow fire. .
When tho smoke of the burning
powder had clearing away the ship
mates of the unfortunate men rushed
to their assistance and tenderly tho
suffering sailors wero taken out of tho
flre-blackoned turret nnd quickly con
vy.jul to tho ship's hospital, where
their burns were dressed by tho sur
In tho meantime Lieutenant Good
rich and Seaman Maleck had been res
cued by a launch that was returning j
from an Inspection of the target. !

Ship Was at Target Practice.
The accldont happened while tho
battleship was several miles off Prov
Incotown and tho men wore engaged
In target practico, together with other
vessels of tho battleship squadron of
tho Atlantic fleet. Tho powder had
just been taken from tho ammunition
hoist, to load an eight-Inch gun. It
was seen to bo burning, and In an In
stant It exploded In tho very face or
tho loader of tho gun. No damago
was don,o to tho vessel, as tho powder
was not confined, and under orders
from Washington tho Georgia sailed
back for tho target grounds off Prov-incetown.
How the powder heenme ignited is
not yet known, hut tho theory held
at the navy yard Is that It was set off
by a spark from tho smokestack of the
warship. Immediately after tho ac
cident the Georgia headed for the
Charlestown navy yard. There tho
dead and wounded" were removed and
the Injured conveyed to tho naval hos
pital at Chelsea.
Tho Georgia Is ono of the battle
ships of the second division of the At
lantic fleet, which has been at target
practico oft Provlncetown far the last
three weeks. The Georgia is one of
the newest battleships of the navy,
having been In commission only about
ten months. Sho is commanded by
Russians Board a Ship.

The Cause of Many

lack the vital organs, causing catarrh of
the bladder, or thfi kidneys tncmscives
break down and waste away cell by cell.
Bladder troubles almost always result
from 11 derangement of the kidneys nnd
n cure is obtained ouickest by a proper
trentmentof the kidneys. If you are feel
ing badly you can make no mistake by
taking Dr. Kilmer's Swnmp-Root, the
great kidney, liver nnd bladder remedy.
It corrects inability to hold urine and
scalding pain in passing it, nnd over
comes that unpleasant necessity of being
compelled to go often through the day,
nnd to get up many times during the
night. The mild and the extraordinary
effee of Swamp-Root is soon realized.
It stands the highest for its wonderful
cures of the most distressing coses.
