The Milan corrC' spondont of the Dally News , tclegraphlin tlonday , says : Calm reigns again today. This being so I can do no harm to say plainly , though It I ; by no means certain that the words wll reach you , that for the last three days tin city has been In the throes of revolution with nil Its horrors and sadness. "Certain quarters today present a seem of complete devastation. In others tbi quietness of terrorism reigns and this Is tin more striking when contrasted In the mini of the spectator with the scenes of yester day and Saturday , when above the shriek ot the dying rose the shrieks of widows am the hoarse words of command and the trami of soldiers , followed by the terrible boom o cannon. "When the fury first broke out many pco pie who would have nothing to do with tin movement were caught In a trap. Hero 1 an Instance : 'The soldiers were advancing to tlv charge against the barricade In the Vii Torno , when a woman , young , richly dressci and stiff with terror , was struck by a bul let In the breast. She fell against the wall only having time to exclaim 'mother' be 'oro dying. At the same time old people unable to resist the rush , were tramplci under foot. 'At another point a fine carriage , will torses wild with fright , was stopped by th mob and Its occupant , a woman , forctbl ; removed and left to find her way homo a best she could. The carriage was used ti carry the wounded to the hospital. "At the central station the engine driver and guards refused 'to 'leaYo ' , their famlllc to the mercy of the mob. However , after delay of forty minutes the trodps obllgei .hem to go on with the trains. "The fighting was In real earnest an < .he soldiers were received as people rccelvi a foreign Invader. Pools ot blood wcr seen in the streets and often the scattcrci brains ot the killed. 'The Red Cross organization , wearlni Midges , succored the wounded and dying. Parent * Hantlnir for Children. "Many children had exceedingly narrow escapes , the firing coming Just as th schools had been closed at noon. Parent rushed about In , an agony of mind. An ; mother or father can understand their feel ings while passing through a mob wit bullets whistling about their cars. "Women , Instead of restraining the met egged them on to greater excesses and eve allowed their children to participate. Som even pushed themselves under the nose of the soldiers crying : 'Cowards ! Assas sins ! Wo work all day to maintain you 1 Idleness ! ' and raising similar protests. "When the mob Invaded the central rail way station the express for Turin was Jus on the point of leaving. The rioters , whei they saw it , cried : 'Look , look ; they ar going to Turin for the fetes of the jubilee They are going to enjoy themselves. Shame Come back ; come back ; ' and so on. Mean while the train advanced , but very slowl ] and hundreds of people threw themselve upon the track In front ot tbo engine scream Ing , 'Come on , but over our body. ' 'A ' very noticeable point throughout the tw days' has been that the working men , thoug without adequate means of offense or dc tense have shown extraordinary tactlct knowledge , a proof among others , that or ganlzatlon existed and preparations ha been made , perhaps , not for an cxploslo now , but at the first opportune moment Thirteen barricades were built by the mo at the Corso Garibaldi , where this mal CASTORIA For Infants and Children. tt trcct is Intersected by others forming mall quaro.
