Nothing waa ever too good for Lima

She waa feasted and dined oa the
rarest food a, and waa bathed and mani
cured like milady. Her hair waa oombed
with sliver-backed combe, while all of

that Lima would be given a funeral

The mother died and rests under a

only 10 of these are known to have,

Two of tha 10 Americana rescued ara
seriously Injured and It la feared that
they will die.
It Is reported that the disaster waa
of criminal origin and tha authorities
are making a searching investigation.
Several motives are aald to be aaslgned
for the possible destruction of the
bridge but the Investlgatora refuse ta
discuss their theories.
Tbe faot that the collapse did not oo
eur until after i:S0 when the workmen
were leaving the atructure lends color
to the belief that spite against the con
tractors caused ths accident. The man
did not quit work quite as early aa
usual last night and were making their
way towards ahore when" half of the
great structure fell Into the water. The
bridge was a mile and a half long and
was nearly completed. The half toward
the southern ehore eollapaed. '
Dae fo' Shore.
Terrified by the sound of crashing
girders and snapping cables the men on
tbe bridge daahed toward ahore. A few
of them reached the portion of the
bridge cloaest to the bank but all were
carried down. One section of the bridge
did not go under water but the men
who were on - It were caus ht In the
twlatad ateel and many hoUra paasedi
before the rescuers could carry them to
a place of safety. Some of them will
survive, but many died on their way to
the hoapltaL .
The men were In the employ of the
Phoenixvllle Bridge company and aub-.
contractors of this city and Montreal.
Just before the crash occurred the
steamer Glenraont had paaaed under the
bridge. When the structure eollapaed
the boat returned to the scene, lowered
life boats and attempted to reeoue tbe
Ill-fated crew. All of those who went
down, however, were evidently so
caught In the ateel and woodwork of '
the bridge that their bodies would not
float for none came to the aurface.
