Lieutenant Prince ; teau and a dozen soldiers who had ; been ordered to accompany the ear- icuit in aeroplanes, had prepared tc ;-leave for Vincennes and seven ol I them were in the air when the car-bur- i etter of Princeteau's mach'ine set fire '. to the aviator. He noticed that his clpthes were •turning and began to descend from a height of 7.5 feet when the wind struck the machine underneath. The machine landed abruptly on its right wing and then the gasoline tank ex- ploded, In half .a second the Bleriot was a mass of flames. Lieutenant Princeteau madu almost superhuman efforts to extricate him- self from the frame 'of the burning monoplane, but his legs were caught between a part of the machine and the ground and he was powerless. The spectators .among whom was the luckless lieutenant's brother, •could not approach the wreck because of the fierce heat. \When they were finally able to quench the flames, the body of the officer was an unrecog- nizable mass of hurned flesh. Lieutenant Princteau was 36 years old and a typical cavalryman. He had ridden many winners in officers' steeplechase races.

Shrieks arose from the spectators, who were jammed so tightly together that they were unable to move. But t|ie soil fortunately w.as sandy and the machine stopped within a few feet of the barrier. Lepine, the chief of the? Paris po- lice, was in a rage and threatened to stop the race if there was a repeti- tion of Garros' act.

Washington, June 19.—Over the brilliantly lighted, the gayly peopled grounds of the White House a spirit at on'Ce grand and simple reigned to- night when the first citizen of the na- tion celebrated the 25th anniversary of a marriage which has been mo- mentous to that nation. The President, who himself has said, with, conviction as well as chivalry, that his wife has been the inspiration of his career, received to- night the most notable assemblage of famous Americans and foreign diplo- mats that was ever brought together in the capital. • The President tonight was not a dignitary, not the representative of the power and the justice of the great republic; he was a happy hus- band. Incidentally he was an inspir- ing example to all Americans of the honorable and holy beauty of per- fect marriage. It was like hirn and like his wife that pomp and ceremonial were only incidental to their silver wedding party. The reception was charming- ly informal. If the President cannot, shake hands as rapidly as some of his predecessors he can shake them more cordially, more sincerely than any, and his famous smile held sway tonight oVef 5,000 guests. The function was unique in the history of the United States. The as- semblage conferred grandeur even upon a presidential reception. The diplomatic corps, the United States Supreme court, the Senate and the House of Representatives, the de- partments of the government and hundreds who are prominent unoffi- cially in the political affairs of the nation were among the guests. Outside the grounds 15,000 per- sons looked on at the magnificent scene. For once the fates were pro- pitious and splendid weather held out to the end. Nine o'clock found the White House grounds ablaze with light, color, and animation. Democratic informality marked the assembling of the guests, white suited officers of the army and navy acting as aides in distributing the arriving guests about the grounds. President and Mrs, Taft Appear. A few minutes before 9 a bugle, note from the veranda summoned Colonel Cosby and the ccrps of White House aides t o the Blue Room and turned all eyes toward the bal.- cony. The great electric' flag stretched across the balcony burst in- to a waving mass of color, the. White House Corps, in double file, stepped to the edge of the balcony and drew up at attention. ' Simultaneously the President and Mrs. Taft emerged from the red parlor to the head of the stairway leading down to the lawn, and, as a wave of applause swept over the brilliant assemblage below, tire military band from Port Meyer burst into the strains of \The Star Spangled Banner,\ It was a most inspiring spectacle. Mrs. Taft, looking better than for months, leaned on the arm of the President, a happy smile lighting up her face. The President, with * his head thrown proudly back, seemed to draw the wife of .25 years-closer to his side,, and- then- stood rigid until the last notes pf the natipnal anthem had floated otf across the Potomac. little- Falls Mttrket, At Little Palls Aionday Stiles were as follows*; 5,851 boxes of cheese at: li-c. .,..•-' , ' Disarmed.

Young Man Fell Four Stories, His Right Leg and Hip Being Frac- tured—Limb Amputated at the Hip. Going to sleep while sitting in an open window on the flourth floor of the Getnian house at Theresa, Sam- uel W. Burtis fell about 1 o'clock Saturday morning to the ground, sustaining injuries necessitating- the amputation of his leg at the hip and Injuring him so that he is not ex^ pected to live. As Burtis himself tells the story from his cot in the Sisters' hospital, he went to his room in the Getman house Friday night about 11:30. As was hjs custom, he sat on a window sill for a few minutes before going to bed and removed the screen. Bur- tis says he must have dozed off to sleep although his mother says that, he was subject t o heart attacks. About 1 o'clock Saturday morning Supervisor Stratton, who lives near the hotel, heard his cries and went to the place where the boy had fall- en. It was at the rear of the hotel. The body in falling had struck on a wooden rail at the rear of the house and then bounded down a cement stairway towards the kitchen of the hotel* The first words Stratton heard was the agonized cry of \Oh my hip,\ but Burtis does not remember of calling for help. He was in a semi- conscious conditipn. He was taken into the hotel and Dr. Snell sum- moned. He advised his being taken to this city for treatment. He was brought here early Saturday morn- ing, Dr. Snell and the parents, Mr and Mrs. John D. Burtis, accompany- ing him. On the train the boy was in agony and had to be held by four persons on a stretcher to overcome the motion of the train. At the hospital an examination showed the right leg t o be broken in several places and the hip also brok- en. It is thought that the other leg is broken. The right wrist is badly sprained and there are bruises and cuts abeut the face and head. Burtis has been a cripple fpr many years. When he was seven years old he was struck by a stone thrown by another boy and has suffered from abscesses since. For years he has been obliged to go on crutches. The condition of the hip combined with the present injury necessitated the amputation of the leg. _ Because of the weakened condition of the boy's heart it was thought before the -operation that he would not survive the amputation. At the hospital Saturday morning Burtis was a wonderful example of coolness and bravery, despite the fact that he must have been under severe pain. He told the story of his fall as cooly as if his injuries were but a slight scratch and bruises and did not appear the least worried about his condition. The amputation was performed by Dr. Calkins. Burtis is 23 years old and is a moving picture operator. His home is in Antwerp. About a year ago a younger brother was injured while on a freight train. Died Sunday. Burtis died at the Sisters' hospital here at 3:30 o'clock Sunday morn- ing, fpllpwing the amputation of one leg. The remains were taken to Ant- werp, where the funeral will be held on Wednesday. Burtis is survived by his parents and three brothers, Gerald and Lloyd, of Antwerp, and John, of Theresa; a half-brother, El- mer Burtis, and a half-sister, Mrs. J. G. Wiggins, of Antwerp.

No more brilliant assemblaze has been seen in this city than that which graced the huge State Armory Mon- day night, when the visiting Knights-] Templar and their wives were ten- dered a reception by the entire Wa- tertown Commandery. The dress uniferras of the knights, the flash of scabbards and gold lace, mingling with the handsome gowns of the women, presented a charming spectacle. Overhead sparkled 3,000 lights against a background of green and white, while in the center a band and erchestra cf fprty pieces played as the hours passed. The reception opened at 9:30 o'clock. At that hour fully 3 00 guests had arrived at the armory and before another hour passed the num- ber had doubled.. Many expressions of admiration on account of the dec- orations and hospitality shown were heard during the evening. There is more Catarrh in this sec- tion of the country than all other dis- eases put together, and until tee last few years was supposed to be incur- able. For a gr;eat many years doc- tors pronounced it a local disease and prescribed local remedies, and by constantly failing to cure with local treatment, prenounced it incurable. Science has proven catarrh to be a constitutional disease and therefore requires constitutional trea tmeht, Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio*, is the only constitutional cure on the mfrket. It is taken internally in doses from 10 drops to a teaspOon- ful.
