Impression on the commission.

Forage and New Disease.
' There is nothing new to report from
the office of the state veterinarian re
garding the horse disease. The work of
investigation is being carried on as hard
as It is possible to carry It, but at pres
ent the investigation has not made much
headway other than to gain knowledge!
on which to work. "There may be some
wiwection between the use of forage
or. newly cut hay and the disease," said
Dr. Davison, the government expert, this
morning. "One thing that leads us to
think that this is so is the act that
animals In cities and larger towns which
have been kept on dry teed all summer
are not afflicted with the disease." '

State Superintendent Delzell returned
Sunday from Aurora, where he attended

I could scarcely work. v

without results. I also took medicine for it
but it did no good. I saw the advertisement

viii-iWNA, Sept. 18.-The brilliance of
the great procession concluding the
Twenty-third Eucharistic congress today
was marred by a continuous downpour of
rain and chilly temperature. From 7
o'clock in the morning until 1 in the after
noon, when the emperor followed the
papal legate, Cardinal Van Rossum, with
the host through the Burgtor, rain fell
unremittingly, drencWng many thousands
walking in the procession as well as thou
sands of spectators along the route.
Parts of the parade showed little but
lines of umbrellas, beneath which tram
pled Catholic societies, clergy, venerable
bishops in full canonicals nd others,
through mud ankle deep and under such
conditions that it was Impossible to hold
the celebration of mass in the open air!
on the top of the Burgtor court. j
The procession simply passed through
the Helden-Platz from the Rlng-Strasse
Into the Inner court of the Hofburg, where
the papal legate, the cardinals, the em
peror and Archduke Franc Ferdinand
1 entered the Hofburg- chapel and deppslted
the host Vast crowds lined the route
from the cathedral of St. Stephen to the
Hofburg, standing patiently for hours for
the procession to pass.
The city was early astir for the crown
ing feature of the Eucharistic congress,
the people beginning to .gather for the
first part of the procession before 6
o'clock. Several hundred marshals ar
ranged the various groups and the pro
cession began to move an hour or two
later. Only men and youths were per
mitted to participate, ' Along the spacious
Rlng-Strasse the houses were decked
with" flags and the route was lined with
troops. 1 ; ,
The miners from Tyrol in quaint cos
tume headed the procession, and were
followed closely by the bakers' guild from
Munster in picturesque attire. -Then came
the various Catholic societies and the
representatives from foreign countries In
national groups, Including Belgium, Ba
varia,' s England, France, Switzerland;
Spain, Albania, Hungary, Croatia and
Bosnia. The four groups last named
wore grotesquely colored peasant cos
Clergy and Bishops. J
The second division was composed of
the olergy and bishops and civil author
ities to the number of 10,000. It was
headed by the - seminarians, and these
were followed by members of the Relch
scrath, provincial diets and the city coun
oll of Vienna and government and muni
cipal officials. The clergy to the number
of 8,000 were In full vestments. :
The court division, a mile and a quarter
In length, formed the last part of the
procession. The emperor drove in a
magnificent state coach of plate glass
and gold, drawn by eight horses, led by
grooms in black and gold liveries, from
the Hofburg to the cathedral to attend
the removal of the host from the high
altar to trie state coach of the papal
legate. Privy councillors and the highest
officials of the court and empire went
first 1n court carriages, and then the
archbishops and cardinals.
The cardinal archbishop of Olmuts,. one
of the wealthiest of the Austrian sees,
drove in a splendid golden wagon built
in the reign of Maria Theresa. It was
drawn by six horses brought from 01
mut for the occasion.
Following these dignitaries came the
archduke in state coaches, and last of alt
the emperor. Behind the monarch rode
the most striking figure in the whole
procession, the papal legate, Cardinal
Van Rossum, bearing the host. His car
riage was a ponderous gilded affair spe
cially built for the empress Maria
Theresa.. The monstrance containing the

CINCINNATI. ; O., Sept 16.-Hand
cuffed, guarded by three stalwart detec
tives and aocompanled by the girl, who
unconsciously gave the police the clue
to their hiding place, .Sldna Allen and his
nephew, Wesley Edwards, who took part
in the shooting up of the court at Hills
Mile, Va,, on March It last, arrived here
tonight from Des Moines on their way
back to the scene of the crime.
Their trip to this city from. Des Moines,
where they were captured yesterday
proved uneventful. Chief of Detectives
Baldwin said the prisoners were Ideal In
behavior and In , far from a dejected
frame of mind. With the exception of
Miss Maude Iroler, whose love for Wes
ley Edwards led the detectives to his
hiding place, the entire party , apparently
relished their food and even the ex
changing of jokes was not Infrequent on
the trip. . .
The younger of the two prisoners as
well as the girl herself were solicitous
in having a rumor denied that she had
deliberately betrayed her . sweetheart
Wesley Edwards. Detective Baldwin cor
roborated their statements and told the
story of the events leading up to the
capture to prove that the girl was no
traitor to her lover. '
He stated that, when Edwards left
Mount Airy, ' N. C, the girl's- home, he
had left C0 with her to be used to Join
him when he was safely secreted. The
money was stolen and then replaced and
in ' this manner Miss Iroler's father
learned of it Detective Baldwin said he
had two ef his men working on the
Iroler farm and in this way learned of a
correspondence between the' girl and Ed
wards. ' .
"The remainder Is easy," snld Baldwin.
"We watched her. When Kho left, these
two men, Lucas and Monday, followtd
her and I was right behind them, on the
next train. You. know the stoiy of the
arrest and that is all there is to it."
The party took supper In this city and
left for Roanoke, Va., at 8 o'clock to
night over the Norfolk & Western rail
road, expecting to -arrive there tomor
row at noon.
With the exception of desiring to cor
reot the statement concerning Miss Iroler,
neither Edwards nor Allen would talk to
night confining their conversation to
"It's too warm to talk."

CHICAGO, Sept. 16. "All the trouble in
Virginia was caused by a deputy sheriff
who Insisted on putting handcuffs on an
Allen," said Sldna Allen today during a j
brief stay in Chicago en route from Des j
Moines east In company with Wesley Ed
waida and Mls Maud Iroler.
The trio were In custody of Chief of
Detectives Balwln, who said bis prisoners
had been well behaved since leaving
Iowa. , ,
Sidna Allen laid the capture to the fact
that Edwards, his nephew, had insisted
on going to visit Mies Iroler at her home
In Mount Airy, N. C.
"I told that boy he would gt in trouble
and we both would be caught, hut he
just naturally would go," said Allen.
"We could have lived in Iowa the rest
of our lives If he had not been In love
Allen talked of his wanderings with his
nephew througn the Virginia mountains
and In Kentucky and Missouri. He in
dignantly denied that he and Edwards
were outlaws. '
"I never saw an outlaw until we got
away from home," Allen said, "In Vir
ginia we don't have locks on our doors
and nobody ever thinks of anybody doing
any barm. But during our travels we
saw a number of persons who would kill
a man for a dollar."
He referred to the assault on a deputy
sheriff for which Floyd Allen was tried
by Judge Maaslo - when the judge was
"The deputy for spite put handcuffs on
Wesley Edwards and his cousin," said
Allen. "It was the first time handcuffs
ever were on an Allen and It made us
