that the coal presidents who refused to

represents every dollar of ranli.nl of the

Mr. Brumm was directing many of his
remarks to Mr. Baer, who was sitting
close to him. The coal president gave him
close attention, and. when Mr. Brumm, in
an oratorical flight, said Mr. Baer denied
at the 11th hour that he had ever said

Mr. Baer was not satisfied, and he said
wltli great earnestness:
"You said I did not deny It until the

"I said you did not deny It until quite
recently," to which Mr. Baer replied:
"If you had waited,." said Mr. Brumm.
"you would not have asked the question."

motormen, engineers, firemen, guards and

A secret meeting of delegates of malcon

Some time ago the company was asked
to make certain concessions, including a

DYNAMITE TO HIDE CRIME
Italian Couple Murdered and Their
House Blown tip by Robbers.
JOHNSTOWN. Pa.. Feb. 9. An attempt
to hide robbery and murder resulted in
the wrecking by dynamite of an Italian
boarding-house at Portage, this county,
early this morning. Two persons aro
dead, two are fatally Injured and .a score
of others had miraculous escapes.
Tony Grillo. aged 44.
Mrs. Tony Grillo, aged 41.
Ralph Telllllda and George Destavo
were seriously Injured.
The boarding-house was occupied by
Grillo and his wife, three daughters and
about Si boarders. When the explosion
occurred the Inmates w;ere hurled in all
directions, but most of them escaped seri
ous injury. The bodies of Grillo and his
wife were, found buried beneath the ruins
of the building, which was demolished.
Persons familiar with dynamite say that
at least 13 pounds must have been set off
under the room where Grillo and his three
little girls slept. It was stated that Grillo
had between $300 and $700, and his wife $300
more, in tho house, but none ot this
money has yet been found, and the theory
Is that it was stolen by some one, who
killed tho couple and then exploded tho
dynamite to cover tho crime.

THE STORY OF A GIRL ON THE
liatlt She and Her Mother Are Entlin
slnatic Over a "Wonderful Event
in Their Lives.
5II33 Maud E. Cable, of Chlco, Butte
County, Cal., ia a bright, vivacious girl
of 15, with the elow of health In her
cheeks. A few months ago, however,
she was sick and weakly. How thla
wonderful change came about la best
told In the words of her mother, Mrs.
Rose Cable, who rays:
"My daughter was In a miserable
state of health, and I feared she could
ont live. It began with irregularity In
the natural functions of her sex, accom
panied by severe headaches, heart and
stomach trouble, and finally she broke
down entirely. The doctor said she had
anaemia, which, he said, meant-Aat her
blood had turned to water.
"The pain in her head- was so seVere
that she was hardly; able to bear it; her
stomach was so weak that she could
'eat nothing but soup. Her liver waa
congested and torpid, her nerves all ur
strung, and her complexion just like a
dead person's. She grew -worse in spite
of the doctor's care, and finally her
hands and feet began to swell.
"An advertisement In the papers led
me to have her try Dr. TVllllams' Pink
Pills for Pale People, and she began to
feel better almost immediately upon
taking them. She grew better every
daj AVhen she had taken them two
weeks she had gained eight pounds, and
fourteen by the time she had taken five
boxes. Her color has come back and
she looks like her old self. She has gone
to work again.
"I feel very grateful for what Dr.
"Wllllama Pink Pllla have dene for her,
for I am sure they saved her life."
