April 25th. 1912.
Editor Star: At last I hare gotten
still enough to write a few letter's and
will, as I promised at the train, write
you something of my trip.
Our trip up to St. Louis was un uneventful
eventful uneventful except that we were sent
around by Evansville, Ind., instead of
the reguar "Dixie Flyer" route, this,
on account of the floods around Cairo.
We saw nothing of the flood until
we got to SL Louis, and nothing there
only we could see that the river was
very high, railroad tracks along the
river front were submerged.' We had
all day in St. Louis waiting for a

In New Mexico the new state legis legislature

but the crop of oranges that were on

At Stockton, California, I waited
all day in order to catch a train that
would pass through the Mount Shasta

Although I. have seen much of the

the whole mountain appeared to be

during the two terrible hours from the
time the Titanic struck until the boat
that carried her hilled away from the

Colonel and Mrs. Astor had both re

he was awakened by the shock or not
Mrs. Astor has not said. but. at any
rate, he went to his wife's bedside and
awakened her.
Gently he told her that something
was wrong and that he thought she
had better get up and dress. He
dressed before she did and said he'
would go and find out the extent of
the ship's Injury. v
But all the time he was getting
ready he was reassuring his wife,
saying not to be afraid, that the Ti

jewel case and put them on. along
with other less important pieces, a
beautiful pin, among other things
that he had given her.
When she was ready they went to
another deck, probably the boat deck.
There were a few other persons there

that Colonel Astor would not or did
not at least take this precaution. He
saw particularly that his wife's belt
was adjusted properly.
His solicitude for Mrs. Astor was
then shown .In another way. She
shrank from the cold and he noticed
It. He said:
You are not dressed warmly
enough, my dear. That suit you have

that she had put on one of the light lightest

valet, to return to the suite and get
one of Mrs. Astor's heaviest dresses.
Rollins quickly returned with the
garments and Mrs. Astor changed her

thinks it was the last or next to the

Emphatically she denied the report
that Colonel Astor got Into or made

to the speed of the steamship, made,
so far as effects op her deck went., a
fairly uncomfortable whole gale of

to the first officer, who had Just taken
the deck, the names of the men who
had relieved them. Backing up to the
pilot house, the officer repeated the
names to a quartermaster within, who
entered them In the log book. Then
the men vanished, to their coffee and

another dripping shape appeared on
the bridge and reported the crow's
