espied the visitors and sent them into the
police station for Investigation. When ar

questioned the police Judge when Mitchell

"Well, Judge, I'll tell you: A few days

Bdghlll, has Just returned from San Fran
cisco with hls-wlfe and a trunk, all he was
able to save from the ruins. Mr. Edghlll
told a thrilling account of the disaster in
which he had some trying experiences. All
of his household goods were destroyed.
'Before my wife and self could realise
what had happened the planter began to
fall on us. We grabbed a few clothes and
made for the street, where others were
rushing frantically about. For the first
forty-eight hours we lived on a sidewalk.
Then we managed to return to our house
and dug out a trunk and suit case, which
we packed as full as we could. We also
saved a watch. The fire was getting near
the house, so near that In the heat we had
to leave some things we had stsrted to carry
away with us for emergency. I actually
dragged that heavy trunk filled with goods
for four miles, and then we stayed In a
vacant lot for a few days before getting
over to Oakland, where the Independent
Order of Odd Fellows assisted us to get
home to Omaha," said Mr. Edghlll.
Mr. Edghlll Is now at home with his
parents, 712 South Twenty-second street.
He left Omaha seven yesrs ago and was
