Colonel Strong, Commanding Artillery District of Chesapeake Bay Received Germans All Through Army Reservation—Visiting Soldiers Fraternized With American Sailors and Soldiers—Luncheon and Garden Party Gives Officers— Officers Go to Washington Tonight. ----------O---------- (By The Associated Press) Fort Monroe, Va. June 4.—On the picturesque parade grounds inside Fort Monroe, the United States Army today welcomed the officers of the German emperor's visiting squaddron. The [cost?] artillery corps garrisoning the fort paraded in honor of rear admiral Von Rebeur-Pascchwitz.

Colonel Strong, commanding the artillery district of the Chesepeake Bay received German visitors all through the Army reservation. German sailors fraternized with the American sailors and soldiers.

Following the review and exhibition drill, Rear-Admiral Winslow prepared a luncheon for the German officers aboard the flagship Louisiana. One feature of the day was a garden party in honor of visitors at the home of H. L. Schmelz, at Hampton, Va.

This evening the visiting officers leave for Washington where round of festivities will begin tomorrow. -----------------------o------------------------- DIVORCE SEQUEL—WEDDING ----------o---------- Mrs. Helen Hilton Story May Mar[cut off] ry Co-Respondent in Divorse Suit.

New York, June 4.—Friends of Mrs. Helen Hilton Story were greatly interested in a report that she is about to marry Stanleuy Forde, the actor who was named by her husband, Allen Lawrence Story, in his suit for divorce.

Mrs. Story, who is soon to inherit several millions from the estate of the late Judge Henry Hilton, professed to be greatly amused at the report.

Quite absurd," she said. "Not one word of truth to it. I suppose people think that I'm going to marry Mr. Forde because they know I am soon to go abroad."

Intimate friends say, however, that it is all settled; that Mrs. Story means to marry Forde on the evening before she sails for Europe and that the ceremony is to take place in New Jersey. James H. Hickey, her guardian, declined to deny or admit the truth of the rumored wedding.

The sailing date has been arranged to coincide with the declaring of the permanent decree of divorce. Mrs. Story's three-year-old daughter, Ruth, is living with her father and his parents, Mr. and Mrs. William [Cammings?] Story, in this city. ----------o---------- PLANS TO LIVE A CENTURY. ----------o---------- Millionaire [Loren Coburn?].

Mr. Parker Will Attend the Banquet of the South Carolina Press Association in Spartanburg Next Tuesday Night and Will Deliver Address on "The Democratic Doctrine of Tariff For Revenue."

Mr. Lewis W. Parker, the well known cotton manufacturer of this city, has accepted an invitation to attend the banquet of the South Carolina Press Association in Spartanburg next Tuesday night and to make an address. His subject will be: "The Democratic Doctrine of Tariff for Revenue."

The Spartanburg Herald in an editorial has the following to say of Mr. Parker:

"Mr. Lewis W. Parker, of Greenville, a men who has done his share of the world's work in the Piedmont, has accepted the invitation extended him to be one of the speakers at the banquet to be given the South Carolina Press association here next Tuesday evening. The press of the state will profit by knowing and hearing Mr. Parker. He is a South Carolinian who has a record for doing things and it is such men that are inspring others in the great development of this section." -----------------------o------------------------- USE DYNAMITE TO CAUSE RAIN TO FALL

Wichita Falls, Tex., June 4.—Although cloudy skies and occasional flashes of lightning last night and early today followed the endeavor of citizens in Wichita Falls to "make rain" yesterday by exploding 6,000 pounds of dynamite, their work so far is without result.

The skies are cloudy, but the clouds are fleecy and give no promise of rain. Even if rain falls there will be a doubt as to whether dynamite caused it, for there seems to have been a general change in weather conditions over north Texas last night. At [McKinley?] ?[illegible] miles southeast of here, a good shower fell last night. The temperature here dropped about 10 degrees lower than it has been during the past few hot, dry days. Furthermore the wind early today changed to the east, a direction from which it is proverbial that rain comes in this section, provided the wind stays in the east long enough.

Even the enthusiasts who are said to have taken rubber boots and "sou'westers" along with them while dynamiting yesterday, will not assert today that the explosives changed the direction of the wind or lowered the temperature. There is no prospect that the dynamiting will be repeated.

There have been two weeks of dry whether all over north Texas; some of the crops are suffering a little; others, particularly cotton, have flourished. -----------------------o------------------------- DEATH MR. SCHRODER ------o----- Well Known Walhalla Man Died at His Home Sunday—Lead Remarkable Career

Special to the Daily Piedmont. Walhalla, June 4—[illegible, faded] B. J. W. Schroder died Saturday morning at 4:30 o'clock at his residence on [Blair?] street after an illness of two weeks. Mr. Schroder was born in Germany nearly 74 years ago, and came to Walhalla in 1850. He leaves a wife, who is a daughter of the late Anderson [Syl?]vester, one son, F. A. H. Schroder, one of the editors of the [faded] Courier, and three grandchildren.

Besides these relatives, three sisters survive him. Mrs. Busch of Walhalla, Mrs. Craft of Spartanburg and Mrs. Newell, of Columbia.

Sixty-two years ago Mr. Schroder was confirmed by the Lutheran church and was the first person to be confirmed in this faith in Pickens District.

He has had a most exemplary life —his has been a life of activity and he was noted for his rigid honesty living at all times in the fear of God. His life is a rich [legend?] and a blessed consolation to his family and friends.

His funeral services were conducted Monday at 11 o'clock by his pastor, Rev. J. B. Umberger, assisted by Dr. John G. Law and Rev. G. M. Wilcox from the Lutheran chuch, after which his remains were laid to rest in Westview cemetery.

During the war between the states Mr. Schroder was employed by the Morris Ship Company whose business it was to run the blockade with cotton that the South sold to Great Britian. Mr. Schroder was in three shipwrecks during his time. The first was in the English channel when he and his family first emparked for America. Different vessels picked up the members of his family and some were carried to one country and others to another. A year later the entire family were reunited and made a successful voyage to America. Later he was in two shipwrecks between the Bermuda Islands and at Charleston. -----------------------o------------------------- 120-FOOT BRIDGE BUILT QUICK Leavenworth, Kans., June 4—Company M.

Democratic State Convention Meets in Raleigh Thursday—Delegates Are Arriving From All Sections of State—Wilson and Underwood Supporters Hold Caucuses Tonight.

[illegible] By The Associated Press Raleigh, N. C. June 4.—With delegates from various parts of the state arriving today, interest prevails over the Democratic state convention which meets on Thursday. Wilson and Underwood supporters both claim majority of the delegates. Wilson delegates will hold a caucus tonight. Representative Heflin will address the Underwood caucus meeting tonight. ----------o---------- HIS NUDES NOT "NAKED."

New York Painter's Work Attacks London Critics' Attention.

London, June 4.—John Hemming Fry of New York is exhibiting at the [Dowdeawell?] Galleries in Bond Street a series of paintings which are attracting the attention of London critics. Mr. Fry's pictures are almost all from classical mythology, and nearly all represent nude feminine figures, but a notable point of the exhibition is that in no case do the nudes seem "naked." Every one knows the quality of female figures as often seen in the Paris Salon. To the unacustomed eye they usually seem to require some drapery, which the artist had forgotten or neglected to put there.

Mr. Fry's canvases seem to be at the opposite pole from the French. His aim has been to bring the classical spirit into present-day figure painting, and by a technique of his own he has given to his painting some of the feeling of proportion and rhythm that one feels in the Greek statue.

Closing Exercises of College Began Sunday When Rev. H. M. Murchison of Lancaster Delivered Strong Address—Y. M. C. A. Sermon Preached Sunday Night—Orators Contest Held Last Night. ----------o---------- Special to the Daily Piedmont. Clinton, June 4—The commencement exercises of the Presbyterian college of South Carolina opened Sunday morning with the annual baccalaureate serman before the graduation class by Rev. H. M. Murchison of Lancaster, S. C. The exercises opened with a prayer by Dr. D. P. Jacobs, after which Dr. Douglas, president of the college, made the announcements of the exercises which Dr. Douglas, president of the college made the announcements of the exercises which will be held during the week in the handsome administration building of the college, and to which he cordially invited every one to be present, ussuring them of his deepest appreciation of their presence.

Mr. Murchison chose as the subject of his discourse, "The Feeding of the Five Thousand, basing his remarks on the 14th chapter of Matthew the 17th and 20th verses inclusive." In his opening remarks he impressed upon the graduates that the success of their lives would reflect great credit upon this college in which all the Presbyterians of the state are so deeply interested. The miracles of Jesus he said explain and illustrate truths. The small amount of plain food which this little lad brought with him was multiplied by the blessings of God so that five thousand men were abundantly fed. That all ate and were filled is significant of the fact that the little of our lives with the blessing of God can be made a great power in the world. Being correct in saying that the five loaves and two fishes would not feed so great a multitude his disciples were wrong is not relalizing the great power that was at their command. Out of such of us God can bring the power He needs for his work. In nothing but a stick in the hands of

with the bread of life. Our talent [con[?] to God has made many men conspicious.

When Christ had blessed and broke the bread he gave it to his disciples who themselves gave it to the multitudes, thus making them the distributors. He also called attention to the quantity that was gathered up after the feast, the remnant being greater than the original substance. This is significant of the great men who do not neglect the little things of life.

Sunday evening Rev. Frank K. Sims, of Dalton, Ga., delivered the address before the Young Mens' Christian Association of the college. He chose as his theme, "The Man and the Bow," from which he drew several very practical and impressive lesson common to every day life. He spoke of the strength of each in-

In ancient times the supreme ideal of the Romans was to have, their army and navy being their chief assets. The Greeks wished to know, their greatest institutions being their schools. To be was the aim of the Hebrews, their desire being the formation of character.

Both of these discourses were very interesting and we thoroughly enjoyed by the large congregation, the various churches of the city having closed for the exercises. The music was led by the college Glee Club.

HEROES ARE ACCIDENTS FATE EVERY MAN CAN DO HIS DUTY ----------------------o---------------------- New York, June 4—All the ambition I have for my boys is simply for them to do their duty— and be men. Heroes are accidents of fate. No man can be a hero of his own volition. A power greater than him makes of him a hero, but every man has the power to live up to the best of his manhood and faithfully perform his duty as he sees fit.

Last night, in the intervals of the Titanic's musicians' memorial concert in a local theater, Captain Arthur Henry Rostron, of the steamer Carpathia, which resuced all those saved from the Titanic, expressed the above views in an interview. He was speaking of his plans for the education of his three small sons. When it was suggested that he was a great hero, the captain shrugged his shoulders and said:

A hero—no; but my men were heroes—my crew, my passengers, my officers were heroes, and what I did was only through the splendid spirit that swept like a flash from the heavens through the Carpathia when the word came that the Titanic was wrecked. I was only an instrument in the hands of an impelling fate."

When Captain Rostron entered the

box in the left of the stage, accompanied by several officers of the Carpathia, a great cheer went over the house. Men and women stood and applauded the captain.

Captain Rostron went to Philadelphia and took luncheon in the Widener home at Elkins Park as the great guest of Mrs. George B. Widener, who was herself rescued by the Carpathia, but whose husband went down with the Titanic. After the luncheon, Captain Rostron returned to New York.

Captain Arthur H. Rostron, of the steamship Carpathia, which brought into port the survivors of the Titanic disaster, was presented with a draft for $10,000 today, a fund subscribed by readers of the New York American. The presentation ceremony took place aboard the liner at her pier here.

Captain Rostron, in accepting the gift, said that whatever part he had played in the Titanic tragedy was due to the loyalty of his crew. It embarresed him, he said, to feel that honors were being thrust upon him through the sufferings of others.

The largest contributor to the fund was Mrs. George Widener, of Philadelphia, whose husband perished on the Titanic. She gave $2,500.

The price indicates one or the other condition, or both. --------------------o-------------------- Puppies and kittens are as plentiful as usual, ours are as cute and playful as can be, but the other fellows are the same sort of nuisances they always were. --------------------o-------------------- The vigor displayed by the neighbors chickens as they scratch in your garden is much more impressive than all the neighbors tales of the eggs they lay. --------------------o-------------------- Yes the directory was convenient, but we use the line longer and in that way get more for our money. You know we pay a higher price for our phones now. --------------------o-------------------- To be drunk with power, renders its victim as incapable of wise action and coherent utterance, as does any other kind of drunk, with never a fear before him of a "ten or twenty" sentence. --------------------o-------------------- The spirit of the fighter, the deep desire to win out in your undertakings, is an element that is wonderfully forceful in pushing its possessor to success provided you control the temper behind the spirit. --------------------o-------------------- The new globes on the lights of the Main street bridge are quite ornamental, all of them show up well in the day-time, but only those "lighted up" make much display at night. The glow from some of them is already being missed in the evenings. --------------------o-------------------- Ladies stand, sometime, in our street cars, while men occupy the seats. One of the penalties this is of rapid growth—of new people entering into our city—for of course no native South Carolinian could sit in comfort, while a lady stood in his presence. --------------------o-------------------- And now the teacher begins her test and to the conscientious teacher—and surely most of them are— it is a great boon. The mental and physical effort are great but the sympathy and tact and love that they must put into their work sounds for even more. --------------------o-------------------- Religion does not consist in going to church or of the observance of the sabbath, neither do good deeds always come from its promptings, nor is it just a state of mind. True religion finds its abiding place where neither love comes from, It lives in the part of man that prompts him to labor—and find pleasure in the service—for his dependent [use?]. It is the motive that prompts the deed, that counts, the act is merely its [fruitage?]

[column 2]


We hear much of Jeffersonian Democracy; many have some idea of what it means, but to most Democrats it simply stands for the kind we, personally, are.

Maybe a fuller knowledge of what Jefferson stood for, what was his ideal of public service, will give us a better idea of what we should strive after politically.

We give some comments of Jefferson on different matters, the first on congress is assembly at Annapolis.

"Our body was little numerous but very contentious. Day after day was wasted on the most unimportant questions."

"To refute is easy, put to silence impossible."

"I served with General Washington in the legislature of Virginia, before the revolution and during it, with Dr. Franklin in Congress. I never heard either of them speak ten minutes at a time, nor to any but the main point, which was to decide the question."

"If the present Congress errs in too much talking, how can it be otherwise, in a body to which the people send one hundred and fifty lawyers, whose trade it is to question everything, yield nothing, and talk by the hour."

"The bill on the subject of slaves (in the Virginia legislature,) was a mere digest of the existing laws respecting them, without any intimation of a plan for the future and general emancipation." This principle was agreed on, "that is to say, the freedom of all born after a certain day, and deportion at a proper age. But it was found the public mind would not yet hear the proposition, nor will it hear it even at this day. Yet the day is not far distant when it must hear and adopt it, or worse will follow. Nothing is more certainly written in the book of fate, than that these people are to be free; nor is it less certain that the two races, equally free, cannot live in the same government. Nature, habit, opinion have drawn indelible lines of distinction between them. It is still in our power to direct the process of emancicpation and deportation, peaceably, and in such slow degree, as that the evil will wear off insensibly, and their place be, part [??] filled up by free white laborers. If on the contrary it is left to force itself on, human nature must shudder at the prospect held up. We should look in vain for an example in the Spanish deportation or deletion of the Moors. This precedent would fall far short in our case."

The prophecy of Jefferson, that slavery would come to an end in America, has been fulfilled, but [soon?] now will as long a period, have elapsed that the freed slave has lived with his former owners, as had passed between the pronouncing of the words and the freedom they attained. Difficult problems have arisen, dire prophecies have been and are being made; conditions are not now ideal, but to those whom the names of [cainhay?], Ellenton, Scott, Moses and many others, bring up memories of past events that seethed with bad conditions and presaged worse to come, we cannot but feel that Providence is quietly working out the problems that Jefferson said were too great for man. Many things are not as they should be, now as then.

Thomas Jefferson, with a clear vision, saw the right lines of effort, defined with great lucidity the main points, but the foundation of his greatness and what must be the principal ingredient of the Jeffersonian Democrat, is a patriotism that begets unselfishness, to live in an atmosphere that develops statesmen and starves demagogues. You have got to think—and think a lot—about the welfare of the other fellow. --------------------o-------------------- HILLTOP GLIMPSES.

Sunday afternoon a gentleman— several years more than fourscore in age—remarked, as a flood of memory arrayed past events before him: "So many people have been kind to me, all through my life this has been so, this is a good world and beautiful."

In retrospect that was a benediction, many incidents were told of the early days of Greenville, some of them were of war times but all were in the nature of an appreciation. North, South, East and West furnished the setting of story and incident, all illustrating the point that the world was good and its peope kind and generous.

A remark was made referring to the extreme beauty of a view that seemed designedly opened between the magnificent trees of the lawn. The old gentleman's sight has grown dim, but the memory of the view was still his, and he remarked: "A tree stood where you see that mound of earth, I was greatly attached to this tree and deeply regretted its loss until I caught the view its removal disclosed."

Our first recollection of this man —almost—was years ago as he comforted a very little barefoot boy who had burned his foot on a recently

[column 3]

welded axle, that had been laid out in the yard to cool.

What a glorious privilege it is to have so lived a long life, that when we reach the hilltop, and take a backward glimpse through this vista or that—we see only pleasant things.

Strange it is that the pursuit of personal happiness is an "ignis fatuus;" that we can only reach it by indirection; we attain it when our object is to give to others rather than acquire for ourselves.

The flowers we scatter in our pathway for others to enjoy, not the ones we plucked for our own pleasure—are the flowers that brighten the landscape as we look backward from life's closing years.

It is not the attaining of a great age, but what we thought, said and did, as the years passed, that colors our memory's picture of the things that were, that opens up a beautiful panorama of past events as we glimpse them from the hilltop. --------------------o-------------------- THE KIND OF MAN

When Private John Allen, of Mississippi, was running for Congress, opposed by General Tucker, as they were campaigning in Corinth General Tucker closed his speech with these words: "Seventeen years ago last night, my fellow citizens, after a hard fought battle on yonder hill, I bivouacked under yonder clump of trees. Those of you who remember as I do that times that tried men's souls will not, I hope forget their humble servant when the primaries shall be held."

This was a strong appeal then and now, but John Allens counter won him his name and established a fame that went with him through his public life.

His reply was as follows: "My fellow citizens, what General Tucker says to you about yonder hill is true. What General Tuckers says to you about having bivouacked in yon clump of trees on that night is true. It is also true my fellow citizens, that I was vedette picket and stood guard over him while he slept. Now then, fellow citizens, all of you who were generals and had privates to stand guard over you while you slept, vote for General Tucker; and all of you who were privates and stood guard over the generals while they slept, vote fo Private John Allen!"

Wasn't there justice as well as humor in this appeal. It does seem strange that a man should advance as a satisfactory argument the appeal that he should be humored again, because in the past he had been, or to ask for a position with large emoluments, from the public, and give as a sufficient reason for its granting that you had an honored aim before.

Former service neither discredits nor disqualifies one for service, nor should it be the disadvantage of the other man that he has never served the public. The fitness of the men for the position they offer for, their ability to stand "four square" in the stress of temptation and vaciliating public opinion, the possession of a backbone that enable them to do the disagreeable or unpopular thing when duty demands it.

To sum it up, 'tis not what a man has been but what he is that counts the most. --------------------o-------------------- SPECIAL COURT TERM.

It is to be hoped that a special term of court shall be ordered for the trial of the case against [T. U.?] Vaughn. If he be guilty of any or all of the crimes with which he is charged, speedy and certain justice should be meted to him, in shape of the punishment that will most nearly fit the crime, or whatever penalty the court can impose that most closely approaches to this.

If Vaughn is innocent of the awful deeds, with the ommission of when he is accused, then too it would be a great injustice to have the cloud hang over him longer than possible.

The confidence of the people is the enforcement of the laws, their respect for the law and its officers, will be increased by the speedy bringing to trial of this case.

In criminal annals of the state, no more heinous offences against human and Divine law, against all of the better instinces that fill the hearts of man, has ever been charged or tried, than these soon to come before our courts. May every effort be made to end that quick and exact justice be measured out. --------------------o-------------------- Back at the Piedmont

[notice for a Charity Ball]

A Fortune For a Dance _____ Spirited Bidding For a Partner at a Charity Ball _____ By HENRIETTA DEERING

During the first half of the nineteenth century, when the patriarchal or plantation system existed in the southern states, there were three distinct classes—the planters, the poor whites and the negro slaves. It is questionable if the negro's condition was not preferable to that of the poor whites.

Colonel Richard Runlet of Virginia was kind to his slaves, and both he and all his family were greatly interested in charity.

A neighboring planter, Oliver Desborough, having had bad luck for several years in succession with his tobacco crop, found himself in pecuniary difficulties. Colonel Bunlet assisted him, and when Desborough was sold out under foreclosure of mortgage the colonel bought his plantation and his negroes, paying for them a higher price than he was compelled to pay. But when he discovered that there was a love affair between Desborough's only son, Lawrence, and his own daughter, Constance, he gave the young girl to understand that no union could take place between the two families on account of the Desborough's impoverished condition.

Constance was but seventeen and Lawrence twenty. She was too young to defy her father, and her lover had little on which to live, to say nothing of taking care of a wife. Besides, he was an ambitious young man and scorned the idea of remaining in the region where the wealth was inherited, not made, and where he must inevitably be always considered a "poor white." It nearly broke his and the girl's hearts to part, but part they did, he going north to carve out a career.

Lawrence Desborough disappeared from the south in the middle of the century. Out of the wreck of the family fortune his father gave him $1000, saying: "My boy, you are young and strong and smart. Use this money to advantage, and some day when you have succeeded come back here and buy back the plantation and those negroes who may not have left it." Lawrence bade his parents goodbye, and it was a long while before he saw his home again.

Colonel Runlet was one of the few planters who emerged from the war with their plantations intact, though a number of slaves had drifted elsewhere. The majority, however, remained to work for him for what he could afford to give them. The old plantation life had passed away, and even the colonel, though better off than most of his neighbors, found it difficult to maintain himself. His former gifts to charity could not be continued, that the women of his family worked for the benefit of the poor in those ways to which their sex is peculiarly adapted, getting up fairs and amusements for the purpose of making money. Constance, now twenty-seven years old and very attractive, was foremost in all such efforts and was worshipped not only by those whom she assisted, but by those who worked, with her.

During the winter after the close of the war there was much misery not only among the lower classes, but among many who lived in affluence, that Constance asked her father's permission to give a masked ball for charity. He consented at once, and every preparation was made to give eclat to the occasion. Since the work to be done was far beyond Constance's single powers she invited a number of her friends to become her assistants. The staff was divided into committees, one of which was to search for unique customs which might be introduced at the ball.

Among the recommendations made by this committee was one that one of the members had read of in a Spanish book. In Granada there was or had been a custom at balls given for the purpose of raising money wherein the privilege of the first dance to any lady was sold to the man who would pay the highest price for it. The committee arranged that those ladies who would premit the privilege of this dance with them to be sold should be auctioned off before the dancing began. About a dozen prominent young ladies consented, among them the hostess, Constance Runlet.

The costumes were of home manufacture, for there was no money with which to buy them. But such labor tends to make the object for which it is undertaken the more enjoyable. Antebellum wardrobes were ransacked, and every available bit of finery that had been stowed away in the south's halcyon period was brought out to be turned into dresses for queens, princesses and other hisorical characters for the women, and kings and noblemen for the men. When the influx of guests had ceased there was a flourish by the orchestra improvised negro musicians, and the throng made its way to the dancing hall, where the auction for partners was to take place. Colonel Runlet's house was one of those colonial Virginia mansions in which a ballroom was indispensible. In this case the whole of the top story was devoted to it. At one end was a dais, on which stood the auctioneer. The ladies whose partnership for the opening dance was to be auctioned mingled with the crowd.

The committee had desired to make a first sale of the hand of Constance Runlet, but Constance would only con-

[column 5]

ment that her turn should be the last instead of the first. This was considered a mistake by the committee, for they believed that much of the [??] to be devoted to the purpose would have been spent, and since Constance was considered the prize of the evening if they began with her they thought they could excit a bidding that would draw forth a goodly sum.

Every young man of that region of the slightest means had been invited, and all were present. There were no northerners, for this was too near to the war to admit of fraternizing with the enemy, but every southern man of respectability within fifty miles, rich or poor, had assembled, some of them suitors for one of the young ladies to be auctioned, not only for the dance, but in marriage.

When the hand of Constance was put up some one started it at $50. A man dressed as Mephistopheles made a second bid of a hundred dollars. A third person offered a hundred and fifty. Mephistopheles astonished every one now by bidding $500. Here the bidding ceased for awhile, but the auctioneer did not make the sale. It had been arranged that a number of married men, in order to be ready to stimulate the bidding in Miss Runlet's case, should form a pool to be put in one man's hands to be used for this purpose. Presently a man in Louis XV costume raised the last bid to $700. Mephistopheles made it a thousand.

Now a wealthy widower was in the pool, who had long wished to marry Constance and the bidding of the fund had been placed in his hands. He doubled Mephistopheles' bid. The latter raised his a thousand, making the amount offered $3000. Louis XV and Mephistopheles from this point continued to bid against each other till finally the latter offered $10,000.

By this time the bidders interested everybody; but, being masked, no one knew who they were. Cries of "unmask!" were raised, and finally, after consultation with others who had made up the pool, Louis XV raised his mask, Mephistopheles' remained concealed. This only tended to increase the excitement.

Louis XV. was recognized as General [Regnard?], who had distinguished himself on the Confederate side during the war. He was fifty years old, well off and considered a desirable partner for a woman over twenty-five years old. He had been spoken of in connection with Constance, and his appearing in this role was received with intense interest. Since Mephistopheles continued to bid, the general did the same. Finally, when the amount offered reached $20,000, after a conference among the members of the pool Colonel Runlet approached Mephistopheles and asked him who he was.

"Incognito," replied the other.

"I must request you, sir, to give some evidence of your ability to make good your bid in case you are accorded the privilege for which you are contending."

Mephistopheles thrust his hand into a pocket of his doublet and took out a certified check for $100,000 on a bank in the nearest city. The colonel withdrew and reported what he had seen. Thence the bidding continued.

General [Regnard?] continued to raise his bid $1,000 at every offer, and Mephistopheles continued to go a thousand higher. Since the latter seemed determined to win at any cost the general kept raising him until Mephistopheles bid $50,000. Then the general nodded to the autioneer, signifying that he did not care to go any further in egging on his opponent. The amount he had gained for the poor was quite enough and had not cost him a cent.

Then a cry arose for Mephistopheles to unmask.

"Not without Miss Runlet's order," he said.

Constance advanced and requested him to make himself known.

He threw off his cape, then his doublet, revealing the uniform of a United States army officer, with the silver leaf of lieutenant colonel on his shoulders. Then, casting aside his mask, he stood revealed to all as a middle aged stranger whom no guest recognized. Constance gave a cry of joy, and he took her in his arms.

Lawrence Desborough had gone north and had become a northern man. The Colorado gold fever at that time occupied the attention of the nation, and, putting his money into what [others?] needed, he sailed around the Horn and sold his stock at an enormous profit. As a commission merchant, he had accumulated capital which he invested in mining property. When the war broke out he volunteered for the Federal army. Before the surrender one of his mines had made him very rich. As soon as he learned of this he came to claim his former love.

His appearance in United States uniform produced a commotion. Many felt bitter toward him as a southerner who had fought against the south, but he had given $50,000 to the poor in and about his former home. and this tended to alleviate the prejudice against him.

The music struck up for the first dance, a quadrille, and Lawrence Desborough and Constance Runlet danced it together, he displaying on his shoulders the insignia of a Federal officer, the only such present.

In time he bought back the plantation of his ancestors and established in it his parents, who were now old persons. He married Colonel Runlet's daughter, but since he had become northernized he took her to the more active field to be found in the northern station.

WOMEN and Children first!" This order from the deck of the Titanic has suddenly set the world afire as if with a new ideal. Artists have illustrated it in striking cartoons, ministers have thundered it from pulpits and newspaper writers have drawn its obvious moral and inspiration with pens that varied from stupidity to genius. It is no new ideal. Life insurance agents and companies have preached and persuaded it in the United States for seventy-five years until a monument worth nearly thirty billions of dollars has been erected by fathers, husbands and sons to the one vital and revivifying ideal of the great Republic. It is the Titanic of the great social seas and every dollar paid in life insurance is a life boat in which "women and children first" are to be rescued when the captain of the family takes his last plunge from the bridge of his domestic ship. Is it any wonder that the race of man, who have learned to sacrifice day by day for the safety of these women and children should die with courage and resignation when the crisis appears? Life insurance has more to do with ingraining the practical ideal into the race and making all men alike in the presence of the threatened family than any other social business movement. Life insurance has always been and will continue to be the one practicale life-boat for women and children endangered in the mid-ocean of life.

EX. COMMITTEE DEMOCRATIC RTY MET THIS MORNING ----------o---------- ARRANGED ITINERARY FOR COUNTY CAMPAIGN THIS SUMMER ----------o---------- CAMPAIGN WILL OPEN AT TRAVELLERS REST AUG. 6TH ----------o---------- Last Meeting of Campaign Will Be Held in Greenville on August 21— Campaign Schedule Subject to Change in Case There Are Conflicts With State Campaigns—Box Managers Appointed—Campaign Fees Were Fixed by Committee ----------o---------- The opening gun of the county Democratic campaign will be fired at Travelers Rest Tuesday morning, August 6th. The campaign will close with the meeting of the city of Greenville on the night of August, 23rd.

The county Democratic executive committee held their annual meeting in the court house today beginning at noon. Many matters of importance were transacted but that of most interest to the public at large was the arrangement of a campaign schedule.

The meeting was called to order by the chairman, Mr. Mills Mooney. The first matter attended to was an arrangement of the schedule which was reported as follows:

August 6—Travelers Rest. August 7—Marietta. August 8—Tigerville. August 8—(Night—Greer. August 9—Taylors. August 10—Piedmont. August 13—Reedy Park. August 14—Lickville. August 15—Fairview. August 15—(Night)—Ft. Inn. August 16—Walkersville. August 23—Greenville.

The above schedule is subject to change if there shoud happen to be any conflicts with the sate campaign.

The managers of each box were appointed. A complete list of those will be published at a later date. The committee in charge of fixing fees of the respective candidates then offered its report. The committee stated that the fees had been based with more equity than formerly having been arranged on a percentage basis in proportion to the salary of the office.

Fees Fixed.

Following are the fees fixed for the candidates of the various offices:

Solicitor, $20; sheriff $20; clerk, $20; register mesne conveyance, $20; treasurer, $15; auditor, $15; supt. of education, $10; master, $10; senator, $10; house of representatives, $6; county commissioners, $7.50; city magistrates, $5; coroner, $5.

The chairman, Mr. Mooney and D. B. Traxler were appointed a committee to arrange for the entertainment of the candidates of the state campaign when that meeting should be held here. The same committee was appointed to have ballots printed and to make all other necessary arrangements. The secretary intends to revise the complete county roll and with this in view will distribute printed forms which will be handed to each executive committeeman.

The "campaign circus" is to be one of unusual interest this year from the fact that political lines are so closely drawn. It is generally believed that the "speaking" will this year be largely attended from the fact that the number of candidates is unusually large.

One of the races in the campaign around which great interest will hinge will be that for sheriff. For this there are several aspirants and rumor has it that there is one who will aspire but who has not put his "hat in the ring." There is the encumbant, Sheriff J. Perry Pool, ExSheriff J. D. Gilbreath, Hendrix Rector, John H. Hall and Robert Anderson, all these are avowed candidates.

The race for the office of clerk of court will also be of keen interest. The incumbant John P. Cureton is a candidate for re-election and he is opposed by Mr. W. P. Hicks, for many years auditor for this county. Messrs. Cureton and Hicks are the only two that have announced for this office so far.

For the office of county treasurer there are three candidates. These are Treasurer John H. Woodside, who offers for re-election, J. Walter Stuart, of Fountain Inn and J. A. Foster, who aspired for the office two years ago, but was defeated by Mr. Woodside.

The incumbent in the office of the register of mesne conveyance, Mr. H. B. Ingram is unopposed in his respective race.

For the office of auditor there is at present only two announced candidates, Mr. M. L. Gulliek, the present holder of the office, and Mr. J. A. West, of this city.

Master in Equity J. W. Gray will stand for re-election and will be opposed by Magistrate E. Inman.

For the office of county superintendent of education only two candidates have announced. There are Mr. J. B. Davis, the incumbent and Mr. J. R. Pyler.

For county commissioner there are six candidates. Messrs. T. J. Newby, W. W. Pearson and George W. Morrow are candidates for the upper section of Greenville county; Messrs. Oliver R. Ware and J. R. Arnold, for the lower section and Supervisor J. P. Goodwin for the middle section.

For the office of magistrate there are two candidates, Magistrate Samuel Stradley and Squire Mitchell.

There are two candidates for the state senate, Attorney Wilton H.

[article continues on column 3, bottom paragraphs]

Earle and Attorney Alvin H. Dean.

For House of Representatives there are a number of candidates.

Among those who have announced are Messrs. C. D. Smith, J. P. Willis, E. E. Kenmore, and J. [C?] Eppes. Capt. John G. Greer will probably make the race for the house.

For solicitor of this district there are only two candidates. These are Mr. Proctor A. Bonham, incumbant, and Mr. John M. Daniel, formerly a member of the house. ____________________________ [headline, spans tops of columns 4-5]

ESCAPED FROM HOSPITAL; CARRIED BED WITH HIM --------------------o-------------------- Richard Lockhardt, colored, who was serving a sentence on the county chain gang, but who was moved to the city hospital last week and was operated on for appendicitis last Tuesday, escaped from the hospital Sunday evening at about 7 o'clock and carried part of the bed off with him. Fearing that the negro might escape, the county authorities had the negro chained to the bed. The shackle on the left leg was wrapped around the bed post and locked. However, neither the chain nor the bed bothered the negro for when escaped last night he carried part of the bed

[article continues on column 5, top section]

with him.

The authorities at the hospital notified Sheriff Pope this morning of the prisoner's escape, but he had not been captured at 3 o'clok this afternoon.

Vina Stenhouse, colored, who lives in Cripple Creek, stated that she saw Lockhardt last night about 7:30 o'clock walking through Cripple Creek with the foot board of a bed under his left arm.

Lockhardt is the negro who entered Springfield's store at the intersection of Buncombe and Rutherford streets several months ago and attempted to rob the safe.

COULDN'T TALK ENGLISH YET WON AN AMERICAN ----------o---------- The Language of Love at First Sight Resulted in Red Cross Delegate's Securing a Bride. ----------o---------- Washington, June 3.—The Red Cross convention here has its romance. One of the delegates sailed for Europe with his bride-to-be and her mother, although up to the time of his arriving here to attend the convention he never heard of either. The wedding will take place in Brussels upon their landing. The brideto-be is Miss Emilie Kaucher, 28 years old, of Washington, and the bridegroom is Dr. J. A. Olivaca Bothelo, a wealthy Brazilian.

The Washington girl met the Brazilian for the first time several weeks ago when he visited a studio. As soon as Dr. Bothelo caught sight of Miss Kaucher he fell desparately in love with her. He knew but a few words of English, but he managed within the course of a half hour to show her the impression she had made. That very night he proposed to her. Miss Kaucher hesitated about accepting the proposal, but the Brazilian was so persistant that she finally consented. Dr. Bothelo is about forty-two. --------------------o-------------------- PROVISION FOR TAFT'S TARIFF BOARD ELIMINATED ----------o---------- (By the Associated Press) Washington, June 3.—Provision for Taft's tariff board was eliminated in the sundry civil appropriation bill as reported to the house today.

An annual appropriation of $25,000 for the President's traveling expenses was allowed. The total appropriation was cut to little over $109,- 000,000, making heavy reductions in provisions for the Panama canal, public buildings and other projects. --------------------o-------------------- ROOSEVELT AND LINCOLN AS SEEN BY JOHN HAY ----------o---------- Washington, June 3.—Since Abraham Lincoln and his views of government have been made an issue in the present campaign through frequent references by Mr. Roosevelt and the insistence of the latter's enthat he has nothing in common with Lincoln, the following letter from John Hay may be of interest.

Mr. Hay was at one time private secretary to Mr. Lincoln and was later secretary of state under President McKinley.

The letter is included in the volume of private correspondence of Mr. Hay comopiled by his wife, Mrs. Clara S. Hay and printed and copyrighted by her for private circulation.

This letter appears on page 328 of volume 3:

"Department of State, Washington March 3, 1905—Dear Theodore: The hair in this ring is from the head of Abraham Lincoln. Dr. Taft cut it off the night of the assassination and I got it from his son—a brief pedigree.

"Please wear it tomorrow; you are one of the men who most thoroughly understand and appreciate Lincoln. I have had your monogram and Lincoln's engraved on the ring.

[Longes, outinam, bone dux, ferias Praestes Hastoriac. Latin?-blurry]

Yours affectionately, JOHN HAY" --------------------o-------------------- HUNTS WITH BOOMERANGS

Missourian Bags Ducks With Bushwhackers' Weapons.

An American hunter who carries boomerangs instead of a repeating shotgun is a curiosity, but Vernon Tanlinger, a St. Joseph (Mo.) [blurry]- [blurry] uses the Australian war weapon when he gets fater ducks, say The New York World.

Tantlinger is an expert with the boomerang and recently bagged 12 ducks with eight throws of his club. Tantlinger says that, as the statutes do not prohibit the use of boomerang he can hunt within the city limits whenever he can find game.

His mode of action in killing wild ducks is to throw one bommerang into a flock when it is on the water and when the birds rise he is ready to hurl another stick into the flock as it is bunched upon the wing.

BOXING IN AMERICUS AROUSES THE MINISTERS. ----------o---------- Americus, Ga., June 3—That boxing or any semblance of stick sport finds no favor in Americus is evidenced in the vehement protests made this morning in personal interviews by all Americus ministers as the result of a bout with the gloves at the local theater Friday night between Mike Saul, of Atlanta, and Billy Kerr, of New York, in a boxing contest.

The "contest" was a dreary affair and somewhat disappointing to the small audience of men who paid $1 each to see Kerr knock out the Atlanta in three rounds, but it had its effect, nevertheless, in sitrring up a storm of protest from the preachers.

The Times-Recorder this morning carries interviews with all the local ministers and without exception they are emphatic and vehement in their opposition to such affairs in Americus, characterizing the alleged sport as degrading and brutal and calling upon the city authorities to prohibit any similar affair here in the future.

The Friday night performance was the first with the gloves Amercus has ever witnessed, and it will be the last one. --------------------o-------------------- FOUR SALES MADE BY MASTER THIS MORNING ----------o---------- Four Sales Were Made by Master Gray, Amounting to $675—16 1-2 Acres In Austin Township Sold for $500—Three Lots Near City Brought Fair Prices. ----------o---------- Little interest was taken in the land offered for sale at public auction this morning by Master in Equity J.

Jefferson Davis' Birthday Was Fittingly Observed Today by Veterans and Daughters of the Confederacy—Hon. J. J. McSwain Picture in Glowing Words the Work of the Confederacy's President—Exercises Held in Park School Were Largely Attended. ----------o---------- Hon. J. J. McSwain delivered a most eloquent address today in commemoration of the birthday of Jefferson Davis. The exercises were held in the auditorium of the Park School and a large crowd composed principaly of Confederate veterans were in attendance.

Promptly at 1 o'clock the exercises were opened with prayer by the Rev. A. R. Mitchell. The chairman, Mr. P. A. McDavid, then introduced the speaker of the day.

Mr. McSwain spoke upon the life, work and character of Jefferson Davis, the president of the Southern Confederacy. In glowing terms the speaker pictured the work of the great southerner as a soldier in the Mexican war, as a member of the United States senate and member of the president's cabinet. He mentioned the stirring words of Davis as he cast his lot with his state when it withdrew from the union.

But it was as president of the struggling Confederacy that the speaker praised the conscientious southerner. He said that Davis had been criticized for being too harsh and stern but that it required a man with a strong determination and unswerving will to pilot the destiny of an ill-fated Confederacy.

Mr. McSwain spoke feelingly of the arrest and preliminary trial and imprisonment of Davis, calling particular attention to the failure of the supreme court to bring him to trial. He said that it should be indelibly stamped on the mind of every southern son that the supreme court, packed with federal sympathizers, refused to convict Davis of treason and avoided a definite decision by never calling him to a trial which he desired to be conducted.

Throughout his address the speaker was repeatedly interrupted by enthusiastic applause but when he made the statements in conclusion, that, "every Confederate monument should be ground into powder and every southern historian text-book should be burned in one national bon fire, the memory of Jefferson Davis would never be erased from the minds and hearts of the southern people,"the entire building resounded with applause and hearty cheering by those who had fought under the southern leader.

At the conclusion of the address the audience stood while Miss Blanche Gleason sang, "Dixie," amid the cheers of the scores of veterans.

Dinner was then served on the first floor of the building by the Greensville Chapter No. 53 of the Daughters of the Confederacy. --------------------o-------------------- TO STAMP OUT SEDITION. ----------o---------- Wickersham Authorizes Grand Jury to Investigate Industrial Workers.
