'Women and children first 1 ' Saves Her Brother's Life. "They tried to get me away from my brother and put me in a boat I refused to go without him Finally my brother and I stood alone in our part of the ship A boat was just leaving that had room for two more passengers The officers in charge said to me " 'Well, if you won't leave your brother, he may come, too' "We got into the boat and by hesi itating, I saved my brother's life "Mrs Straus had had a chance to be saved, but she refused to leave her husband As our boat moved away from the ship--it was the last boat of all--we could plainly see Mr and Mrs Straus near the rail with their arms around each othei "The lights of the Titanic were all burning and the band was playing To me the most affecting episode of t h e s le- the m Mr*. John Jacob Astor the whole disaster was that final glimpse of this elderlj couple await Ing the end together " Three sailors of the Titanic, who w p i e standing near Mrs Schabert, spoke up at this moment to say "You know the Titanic just crawled up on that iceberg and broke in two " Astor Is One of Heroes. "The conduct of Col John Jacob Astor was deserving of the highest praise," said Colonel Oracle of the regular army who narrowly escaped drowning "The millionaire New Yorker " he said "devoted all his en ergies to saving his young bride, who was in delicate health "Colonel Astor helped us in our efforts to get her in the boat ' said Col onel Grjeie "I lifted her into the boat, and as she took her place Col onel Vstor lequesled permission of the second officer to go with her for her own protection "'No, sir' lepllerl the officer not a man shall go on a boat until the worn en aro all o f f ' Goes to Aid of Other Women.

Of how Colonel Astor met his death, she had no definite conception She recalled, she thought, that in the confusion as she was about to be put into one of the boats the colonel was standing by her side After that as Mi Biddle recounted her nanative, she had no clear recollection of the happenings until the boats were well clear of the sinking steamer Mrs Astor, It appears, left in one of the last boats which got away fiom the ship It was her belief that all the women w h o wished to go had then been taken off Her impiesslon was that the boat she left in had room for a* least fifteen more peisons Clear and Starlit Mrs Edgar J Mejei of New York said 'It WPS a clear and starlit night When the ship stiuck w e weie in our cabin My husband went out on the deck to see what was the trouble He came back and said we had hit an icebeig but that it did not amount to much I said I was nervous We went on deck for a walk More peo pie said the accident was of no im poitance It would onlv delay our arrival f I w as afraid and made my husband promise if there was trouble he would not mak« me leave him We walked around the deck a while An officer came up and cried 'All women into the lifeboats ' "My husband and I discussed it and the officer said 'You must obey or ders ' Decided to Separate. "We went down into the cabin and we decided on account of our baby, to part He helped me put on warm things I got Into a boat, but there weie no sailors aboard We called to the ship that there were no men in the boat They sent a sailor down "A.n English girl and I rowed four hours and a half Then we were picked up at six o'clock in the morn ing We were well away from the steamer when It went down, but we heard the screams of the people left on the boat "There were about seventy widows on the Carpathia and all were won derfully brave The captain of the Carpathia and the passengers did all they could for us Mrs Hairis sajs my husband and Mr Harris and Mr Douglas lowered the last boatload full of w omen All three were perfectly calm Fights to Save Wife. Mrs Daniel W Marvin of this city, who was on a honejmoon trip with her husband, was almost prostrated when she reached the dock and learned her husband had not been picked up by some other boat "My God don't ask me too much," she said, "tell rne have you any news from Dan' He grabbed me" in his arms and knocked down men to get me into the boat As I was put in the boat he cried "'It's all right little girl, you go and I will stay a while I 11 put on a life preserver and jump off and follow your boat' "As our boat shoved off he threw a kiss at me, and that is the last I saw of him " Mr and Mrs II J Allison of Mon treal and their daughter were drowned, their ten months old baby, a boy and his nurse were saved Mrs Allison was just about to jump into a lifeboat where the nurse and babv were when she discoveied her husband was not with her She went back to look for him and did not return Green Lantern Saves Many.
