This great kidney tonic brings to bear an influ-

One of Pitiful Scenes.
One of the most pitiful scenes was
that of the atempted rescue of Nor-

burned. He met the firemen,smiling-

suffering badly and, wished he had
something to deaden the pain. He
also told them that Mr. Bush was be-
neath the ruins, as he had been wait-

died from his burns as he waB being
The Kistler family had a remark-
able escape or partial escape. The
father, who 1b a merchant across the
street from the scene, heard the crash
and looking across saw a dust-cloud-
ed heap of ruins, where he knew his
wife and daughter and his wife’s
mother had been shopping. Almost
crazed, he rushed across, mounted the
quivering pile and began tearing
away debris and, as if by some mir-
acle, worked strlght into the heap to
where his litle daughter lay, almost
unhurt. He carried the sobbing child,
kissing her wildly, to relatives on the
other side of the street, and returned
for feverish search for the others,
and found that they had both been

These were but a few of the heart-
stirring scenes. Another sad incident
lay in the fact that a popular young
woman of McKinney, Mrs. Lynn Perry
who was seriously 111, required the
services of a physilcan, and none
could be found in the confusion. She
died while efforts were being made to
locate a doctor. She had many friends
in Dallas, Fort Worth, McKluney and

Kistler, who has several broken ribs
and severe internal injuries. She is,
however, expected to recover. Five

in the front of the building, and dis-

Austin, Jan. 24.—The chances of the
