Terpsicborean Diversions
The enjoyment features have been
numerous and pleasing. Last night there
were three dances in different parts ol
the oitv. Governor Campbell and Sen-
ator Culberson attended. The latter went
to a ball in the same hall where he at-
tended a similar function eleven years
ago when he was Governor, and there
are those here who said that he did not
seem a day older than then. As for the
Governor, he acquitted himself as nob y
an tie would have acquitted himself at
an inaugura! ball. Both of these high
officials being married men the writer
will not go lurther into details concern-
ins their participation in the festivities,
but in this connection the essay on the
ladies of Fredericksburg may be remem-
bered. ^
The Governor and Senator Culberson
rose this morning just as the pink was
shooting the eastern skies and, after a
brief meal, left for Kerrvllle to take the
afternoon train, leaving a regretful
crowd of reunionists behind them. Their j
presence had been thoroughly enjoyed
and appreciated, and they wers not al-
lowed to depart until they had registered
a sacred premise to attend the reunion
ot the Mountain brigade next year,
wherever it may be held.
For awhile the departure of Senator
Culberson threatened a Senatorial
"hiatus," but this was avoided by the
arrival of Senator Bailey last night. Had
Senator Culberson departed last night,
lis he at one time contemplated, the
hiatus would have resulted, as there
would havu hern a period during which
no Senator would have, been present.
The Fredericksburg Band.
A word more about these FroderlcKs-
burg bands Their tunes are wonderful
and symphonlous. They play up and
down the hills and valleys of America,
through the braes of Scotland, over the
emerald hills ot Ireland, through th>
citron groves of Italy, amid the vine
lands or France, and even play martial
airs which cheered Japs and Russians
into conflict "way over upon the Tain.
It is a great hand of musicians. This
band gave a concert last night in the
auditorium of the Nimitz Hotel in honor
of the arrival of Senator Bailey, who
was inanit'Stly pleased. If there are
two airs which they render better than
others they are "Dixie" and "Yankee

most of the mint, loath to break oft the

I ,h ft t night and tonight in connection
with the dances at the grounds and In
connection with the swings, merry-go-
rounds, ball and baby tents, etc., there
were and will be fireworks displays
rivaling the frenzied stunts of Pain-on-
the-pike 'way back in 1904.
One thing noticeable, about this re-
union is the freedom of the grounds
from dust. Water sprinklers are work-
ing constantly and the air is as free
from nauseating molecules as it could
possibly be.
Another feature is the clocklike regu-
larity of everything, no hitches, no fric-
tion, no delays, no rowdyism, no nothing
save good times, laughter and general
end widespread satisfaction.
Today's program, which included ad-
dresses from Senator Bailey and Con-
gressman Slayden, was well received.
The program tomorrow will include the
retirement of the present officers of
the brigade, the election of new officers
and the ^election of the place for the
next reunion. Fredericksburg will be a
strong candidate, although Llano feels
that she is entitled to it and will work
i for the honor. Friday night the curtain
i will bo drawn and one of the most in-
: foresting reunions will come to a close.

An interesting visitor to the reunion
now in progress here Is J. J. Manning

friend of General R. T3. I>eo and who has
on his person a strip of gold braid cut
from the military coat of the leader of

the denunciation of the plan. They claim

NEW YORK, Aug. 1.—"The Grave-
yard," as the foreign populated neigh-
borhood! on First Avenue, between Thir-
teenth and Fourteenth Streets is known
locally, gave up today a fresh crime
rivalling the notorious and mysterious
butcheries of last week. The latest dis-
covered victim was an 8-year-old girl,
and, like the two young women mur-
dered, she had been shockingly mis-
treated before death and tartly mutilated
when life was extinct.
The three murders are strikingly sim- j
ilar. Last Thursday night a woman was
strangled in a boarding he use. The next
morning the body of a still unidentified
woman, who had been choked to death,
was found in an area way.
Katie Pritchler, the 8-year-old daugh-
ter of a restaurant waiter, whose body
was found today, disappeared a week
ago today and was killed that night. A
ribbon placed about the throat and
drawn so tightly that it cut the flesh,
showed how she died. Her body was
found today. .
If the brutality of the murders can
bo qualified) that of the Pritchler girl
ranks first. S>he was assaulted, mur-
dered and then her lifeless form was
horribly mutilated.
Scene of Revolting Murders,
"The Graveyard" takes its name from
the proximity of the old Thirteenth
Street cemetery and the locality has
been the scene of several revolting mur-

Carl Pritchler, the father of Katie, is
a hard-working, respectable citizen. He
has several other children, all younger
than Katie. The girl left her home at
34o East Thirteenth Street last Thursday
night to play in the street. When she
failed to return the father notified the t
police and* a general alarm was sent

"You can say for rne," Coroner 1
Harburger declared, 'that the crimes in
Berlin, of which th" newspapers havo
told, have not been one-thousandth part

The Coroner would not permit the body
to be photographed.
At the Coroner's direction a cobbler
whose shop adjoins the. girl's home was
arrested and asked to explain his ab-
sence from his shop on last Friday. He
established the fact that he had spent
