"Take heed that ye do not your righteous acts before men, to be seen of them; otherwise ye have no reward of your Father who is in heaven." (Matt, vi. 1.)

Hypocrisy and Sincerity.

Matthew vi. 1-18 Memory Verses, [?] 8. Read Luke xi. 1-4.

1 Take heed that ye do not your righteous acts before men, to be seen of them; otherwise ye have no reward of your Father who is in heaven.

2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you. They already have their reward.

3 But when thou doest alms , let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth.

4 That thine alms may be in secret; and thy Father who seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.

5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are, for they have to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you. They already have their reward.

6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father who is in secret; and thy Father who seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

7. But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the Getiles do; for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

8. Be not ye therefore like unto them for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

9. After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.

11. Give us this day our daily bread.

12. An forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil; For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

14. For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father forgive your trespasses.

16. Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites of a sad countenance for they disfigure their faces; that they may appear before men to fast. Verily I say unto you; They already have their reward.

17. But those when fastest, anoint thine head and wash thy face;

18. That they appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father who is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret, shall reward them openly.

Unadvertised Religion—The International Sunday School Lesson for June 2 is "Hypocrisy and Sincerity," Matthew 6:1-13

Traveling on the Grand Canal in China one day in a public land, I was interested in the attitude of the wealthy Chinese aboard toward a beggar on the banks. The boy was crying most plaintivley and stopping frequently to beat his hands on the earth in supplication. He was a professional beggar, and all about us were the really starving Chinese, but the gentry on the bus took on a collection for the beggar. When it was pointed out that he was only a professional mendicant they smiled and said, "Yes, but we'll acquire merit just the same." They thought to earn the reputation for [?] which befitted their dignity, and also as Buddhists to store up merit for themselves in heaven.

That is the heathen type of philanthropy, although it is not confined exclusively to heathen homes. Their deeds were done [?] and indiscriminately. They are the easiest form of the modern system of [?] agenting for self advertising. The practice existed in the time of Jesus and in this teaching lesson he lays bare the sham and hypocrisy and futility of it all.

An Untagged Bequest

It was enacted so unusual as to be important news when a few weeks ago, Lord [Lister?], the great Englishman, died leaving a fortune to charity with the specific injunction that his own name shall not be attached to any of the forms that his benevolence should take. This implied a keen rebuke by the men who insist upon purchasing post-mortem reputation for themselves by the money which they are enable to take with them beyond the grave. The whole system of endowing philanthropism that shall bear the donor's name would seem to come in the condemnation of the [fearless?] Christ.

His bold teaching was counter to the modern tendency of the official hands of His church to cultivate and magnify the "big giver." There is a perceptible trend in Christianity work toward the exaltation of the person who can give large sums for religion. Some religious institutions have come to demand almost wholly upon such. Even denominational mission boards are following the trend of regarding the person who can give large sums as indispensable to their work. Some day, and that soon, there will be a great awakening to the futility and folly of building the work of Christ upon the money bags of a few rich men. Already certain noble intentions are manifestly imperilled by this.

[column 2]

accounts. It is assumed that the philanthropist is the one who endows a library, a hospital, a college, or a research fund; and it is taken for granted that the donor's name should accompany the benefaction.

This notion needs to be directly challenged. The real philanthropy of the world is to be found in the good deeds of plain people, who without ostentation of posing, play the part of brother to one another in necessity. There is more philanthropy among the hosts of the world leaders who have naught to spare but all to share, than in all the gilded lists that are kept in card catalogs in Wall Street banks. Let us open our eyes to this clear and simple fact, and remember its bearings and [?]. The hope for human helpfulness, and the hope for all Christian benevolences lies ultimately with the great masses of ordinary people, who never [?] to exact a return in advertising or recognition for what they do out of simple brother love, which is the Anglo-Saxon for philanthropy.

The War of Viewpoints

Two tendencies have always been at war in society and in the breast of [men?]. Human nature naturally [?] for reputation. Everybody, from the child in his first knickerbockers to the old lady with a new bonnet is solicitous about what other persons may think of him. That is instinctive. Reputation has always seemed to man supremely desirable.

On the other hand, God's interest is in character. He is zealous that his children should be, rather than that they should seem. All His laws tend toward inner worth rather than outward show. Repeatedly, through all His [?] to humanity, He has made clear that he judges by the visible standards of soul measurment. His judgments by no means coincide with the biographies in books and newspapers, or with the common opinion of one's neighbors, for this contest between the tendency to exult reputation and the counter tendency to exult character, Jesus places Himself, with all the force of His eloquence upon the side of a life that is lived in its hidden contents only, for the eye of God.

The Strength of the Secret Life

Publicity is coming to be increasingly valued in all department of our modern civilization yet it has its great dangers. Everybody who associates with public workers knows how lecturers and evangelists and secretaries scan eagerly the morning papers, not for news of the world, but for the mention of themselves and their work. A strong current in our modern time [acts?] toward the examination of the printed opinion as a measure of man's [essence?]. We have even known men and this point is touched upon by Jesus--to send their prayer for publication in the newspapers--prideful, over published [?].

Only a vigorous secret life, lived in communion with God, can preserve [?] [steady?] and true in public activity. Said a young Korean missionary, "The only way a missionary can keep safe amid the popular temptations of his life is by guarding his secret communion with Christ."

Many will recall the figure of

[article continued on column 3, top section]

[column 3, top section]

Drumsheugh, in the "Bonnie Briar Bush," who had a reputation for meanness and unsentimentality, but who it was revealed at the end, had scrimped and saved in loyalty to a great romance that the son his boyhood sweetart, who had married a shiftless man, might have the education that the mother coveted. That is an [oaken?] type of character It was strong enough to seem in the eyes of men worse than it was in the knowledge of God. It could smile with a breaking heart and haggle for pennies in the service of a noble ideal. The staunchest type of religious character is that which has is deepest relationships a confidential matter between itself and God.

The Man With a Pray Wheel

From Darjeeling I brought home a couple of Tibetan prayer wheels, and as I had seen the monks and mendicans twirling as they went sight seeing about the town. Some of them carried very much bigger prayer wheels than I cared to bring home, but I could not see that their interest in the process was any less mechanical than that of other men who twirled smaller cylinders containing fewer prayers stamped in the strips of paper. This Tibetan practice carried mechanical praying to its limit. The belief is that every time the cylinder revolves the prayer is said. Up the mountains of Tibet it is reported that huge prayer wheels are affixed in [?] wheels.

All is for outward seeming, there is no relation between the prayer wheel and the life.

In like manner one may see in Darjeeling, as well as throughout all of India, Hindu holy men where holiness consists chiefly in their extraordinary appearance of long hair and beards, and ash-smeared faces and bodies. They are the antithesis of the praying man described by Jesus, who shut himself up from the eyes of men, that he might pray by the Father who seeth in secret.

Let it be said, as strongly and as often as possible, that the religion that exists for the eyes of men is heathenish and unChristian. It runs squarely against its teaching and the mind of Christ. True Christianity has its highest and holiest hours in the prayer closet. It is not concerned with men's praise, but with God's favor. Thus, to be a "lending layman" or conspicuous Christian worker, exposes one to all the perils of man serving heathenish religiosity.

Praying the Big Prayers.

This great lesson does whith the model prayer which is commonly call the Lord's prayer. Jesus meant it for a model. It in itself is not a sufficient petition for the Christian's life, because of its impersonal character, but it does show how all praying should include the big petition. It recognizes that God is on the throne even more than it recognizes that peitioner is on his knees. Its first supplication is for the glory of Jehovah; the second is for the coming of His Kingdom; the third is for the [?] of His will. What a sweep and a horizon and an atmosphere we have there! Anybody who lives in the spirit of the Lord's Prayer is lifted up out of petty self-interest. There is one petition for the things that keep a man in life, and there it is followed by the great prayer for the spirit of forgiveness, which is greater than bread. After that comes the cry for deliverance from sin's [thereupon?].

By this prayer, as by all His utterances, was not the Master trying to teach His disciples to live worthy of the Kingdom of which they were members? He sought for their sincerity and unselfishness of character, and He wanted them to become as indifferent to the opinion of the world as He himself was.

Bridge Tea.

Mrs. T. J. Gage entertained at a delightful informal bridge tea on Saturday afteroon, at her attractive house on East Washington street, in compliment to her guest from Philadelphia, Miss Julia McFarlan, who is now visiting in Laurens before returning home.

This pleasant afternoon was spent on the terrace which is an exquisite picture in its trailing—rose vines covered with the pink and red Dorothy [Perkies?]. On another side is the rich purple clematis. The three tables were arranged back of this garden of roses, making the surroundings particularly pleasing to the eye, while a cool breeze wafted a fragrence over the pretty scene.

The game was enjoyed for an hour, when Mrs. Gage's young daughters, Misses Pauline and [Wilmer?] Prentiss, handed delicious sandwiches and tea.

Invited to meet Miss McFarlan were: Mr. Oscar Hodges, Mrs. David Jennings, Mrs. Davidson, of Chester, S. C., Mrs. Robert Tilman, Mrs. David [? blurred], Mrs. Jesse Smith, Mrs. John Russell, Mrs. Walter Griffin, Mrs. George [Baumann?] Mrs. Julia Hoke and Mrs. [Pegues?]. --------------------o-------------------- Miss Lewis Entertains.

Miss Annie Lewis charmingly entertained on Friday afternoon at the home of her aunt, Mrs. James Birnie, on Augusta street, the occasion being a delightful bridge party to which she invited about sixteen girl friends.

The rooms where card tables were arranged were most attractive with the added beauty of lovely carnations, sweet peas and roses gracefully arranged to brass baskets and bowls.

The game was enjoyed for an hour, when cards were removed and a delicious salad course, followed by a tea was served on the prettily spread tables.

Miss Lewis' guests who were so pleasently entertained were: Miss Mary Lowery of Fredericksburg, Va., Miss Octavia Arrington, Miss Ruth McGee, Miss Lizzie McBee, Miss Eleanor Furman, Miss Maud Hammond, Miss Lydia McAlaster, Miss Elizabeth Beattie, Miss Rita Richardson, Miss Jane Gower, Miss Lillian Perry, Miss Margaret [faded] ?[blurred], Miss Frances Payne, Miss Theodora Hayne, Miss Wilber Earle, Mrs. Frank Richardson, Jr. ------------------------o----------------------- Compliment to Mr. Poston.

Mr. Charles E. Poston, director of music at Greenville Female College, [? met] last night to join and act as accompanist to Mr. Charles C. Washburn on a four weeks' concert tour of prominent cities and towns in Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi.

This is indeed a great compliment to Mr. Poston's ability as a musician, as Mr. Washburn is an eminent baritone who has just completed a concert tour covering 10,000 miles, and when here in Greenville is an artist with Victor Herbert's music festival he was pre-eminent.

Mr. Poston is one of the best and most popular music directors in the south and Mr. Washburn is to be congratulated in his success in securing such an able accompaniest. --------------------o-------------------- Reception Thursday.

The following invitations have been issued, which will be one of the most delightful social events of the week:

The Friday Bridge club enjoyed a delightful meeting on Friday morning, when Mrs. T. C. Gower was the hostess. This was one of the very pleasant gatherings of this congenial club, which will meet throughout the summer.

After cards, a tempting luncheon was served on the small tables.

The dormant project of a railway across the Sahara has been actively revived. A French commission charged with the task of ascertaining the most favorable route landed at Algiers in January, and proceded to the southern terminus of the present South [Gram?] Railway, Columb-Bechur, whence a march across the desert was to be undertaken. The party is led by Captain [Niger?] of the Colonial interior.

The tentative plan for the railway contemplates a line south from Algeria, branching at some point not yet selected; one branch to proceed via Timbuktu to Senegal, the other to Lake Chad.

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-

[?blurry] of the need of having a purpose and aim in life, impressing upon the the importance of untiringly pursuing [? faded words]. 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.

The annual orator's contest was held Monday evening in the college auditorium, the following young men contesting for first honor. Messrs. D. B. Green, J. M. Lenmoe, and Jimmie Horton of the [Phil?]

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

[article continues on column 6, middle section]

[column 6, middle section, just below advertisement]

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.

LIFE A FAILURE, SLAYS HIS WIFE; KILLED HIMSELF ----------o---------- BENJAMIN STORY SHOOTS WOMAN FROM WHOM HE WAS SEPARATED ----------o---------- FEARING ATTACK BY HIM SHE HAD INSTALLED A TELEPHONE ----------o---------- After Shooting Her Down Storey Went to the Store of His Brother and Telephoned Him, "I Have Just Killed Maud; all my Earthly Troubles will be Over in a Short While—He Then Swallowed Two Ounces of Carbolic Acid and Died Shortly Afterward. ----------o---------- Atlanta, Ga., June 4.—A bullet through the heart ended the unhappy life romance of Mrs. Maud Fowler Storey, a handsome young boarding house keeper of 261 East Hunter street, when she refused to accompany her husband, Benjamin Howell Storey, to an ice cream parlor, Sunday night. The irate young husband fired three shots into the breast of his wife when she told him for the third time during the week that she would not live with him again. The woman died in the arms of W. T. Archer, a boarder, before the startled guests in the house really knew what had happened.

With smoking pistol still in his hand, Storey ran to the junk store of his brother, at No. 2 Moore street, a short distance away and called up his brother's home, [150?] Cherokee street, and told him of the shooting.

"I have just killed Maud, and in a little while it will be all over with my earthly troubles," he is said to have told his brother.

Swallows Carbolic Acid.

The police reached the East Hunter street house just after Storey left, and acting under instructions of Assistant Chief E. L. Jett, a cordon of policemen were [thrown?] about the neighborhood. While the police were searching through the inky darkness, Storey sat on the sidewalk on Connally near the corner of Woodward and after briefly contemplating his horrible deed, swallowed two ounces of carbolic acid. He died in frightful agony before the police arrived. The body was found by Morris Rubin, a boy living at No. 41 Connally, and M. Baum, of 81 Connally, notified the police after he accompanied the terrified youngster back to the spot where the body lay dead in death.

The shooting was dramatic and sensational in every detail and was executed with such precision as to leave no doubt but that the crime was premeditated.

It was a few minutes after [? faded] o'clock when Mrs. Storey, who had been separated from her husband, was summoned to the telephone. It was her husband on the other end of the wire and he demanded that she meet him at the corner of East Hunter and Moore street, a half square from the house. She refused at first, but when he cursed her and threatened to come up to the house and make a scene, she consented.

Advised Her Not to Go.

"She stopped just long enough to ask me if she should go to meet him," explained one of the women boarders in the house, "and she explained that she was afraid to trust herself alone with him on the street. The lights were all out, and the street was in darkness and I advised her not to go."

Mrs. Storey had just stepped on the front porch after seeking the advice of her friend when she saw her husband coming in the direction of her home. She apparently did not wish him to start a racket and walked to the front gate to pacify him, if possible.

"Maud I want you to come to the corner and have a talk with me about all this trouble," he informed her.

"I don't want to leave the house I can't go," she replied.

At this juncture, W. T. Archer, a boarder, started for the front gate. He said afterwards that he [? faded] wanted to be near at hand to prevent Storey from attacking his wife.

Opens Fire on Wife.

"Who is that man, Maud," Storey asked his wife.

She informed him that Archer was one of the boarders in the house and turned to go back into the house.

"Well, Maud, this is the end of it," and Storey sent three bullets from a 32 caliber Iver-Johnson revolver crashing into her breast. One of the bullets passed through the heart, and the other two passed within an inch of the first.

The woman toppled over into the arms of Archer, who started on the run at the first glint of the pistol. The woman did not utter a word. Not even the feeblest groan came from the twitching lips. Archer carried the limp form to the porch and sent the other boarders who were inside the house to alarm the police.

After the shooting Storey calmly walked to the junk shop of his brother and notified him of the shooting and intimated that he was going to kill himself. He walked from No. 2 Moore street into Connally and there swallowed the death poison which put an end to his own existence.

Search for Murderer

The police call squad composed of Policemen Hood, West, Palmer and Watson made a search of the neighborhood, tracking the footsteps of the murderer from the East Hunter street house to the junk shop in Moore street. The track led to the office where the officers found footprints on a piece of newspaper upon

[cut off]

[article continues on column 2, near top]

[?] enter. There were bloodstains on the paper and the police feared then that Storey had kept his word and had shot himself and dragged his way from the place to die in some secluded spot.

Morris Rubin, a lad of 14 years, was frightened out of his wits when he stumbled over the body of Storey lying on the sidewalk in Connally street. He had just heard of the murder in Hunter street and was hurrying to his home No. [11?] Connally street to avoid the [? faded]. He did not stop to look a second time at the prostrate form, but hurried home and informed M. Baum who lives at No. 81 Connally street. Baum notified the police when he saw that the man on the sidewalk was dying.

Husband and Wife Dead.

The Grady ambulence interns examined Mrs. Storey and found that she was dead, and then started to Connally street to give what aid they could to the slayer. He was also dead when the ambulance arrived.

The life of Mrs. Storey had been one long chapter of misery since she married her second husband, according to Mrs. L. A. Green, her sister. The couple had parted several times during the brief two years of their married life and according to those who were intimate with both, the trouble had been caused by Storey's drinking. Some months ago the police were called to the house in East Hunter street by Mrs. Storey. They found her bruised and bleedng from a slugging the administred. He was arrested, but his wife relented and consented to his release on a peace bond.

Recently Storey went back to the house and threatened to beat his wife if she did not return to him. She locked herself in the house and had one of the neighbors call for the police. It was because of her dread of her husband that Mrs. Storey had a telephone installed in the house in order that she might get in quick communication with the police in the event he attacked her suddenly in the night.

Feared Her Husband

"I fear that my husband will kill me some night while I am asleep," Mrs. Storey told several of her friends. "I wake up sometimes in the night thinking I hear him creeping on me to kill me."

The police have had trouble with Storey often. He was on the streets at 3 o'clock Friday morning, and was at Decatur and Hilliard streets, where "Demp" A. Smith, the stockade guard was murdered. Storey made himself obnoxious to the police and he was cautioned to leave the vicinity several times. He was recently before Judge [Beavles?] on a charge of drunkenness and was placed under the care of Probation Officer [Carter?]. He spent two weeks at the adult detention home.

The last threats he made to his wife called her to consult friends and relatives with a view of having him arrested on a warrant.

Marries Second Time.

The wife was Miss Maud Fowler before her marriage to Robert Wheeler, a thrifty and respected bartender. One child, a beautiful girl, was born to the 1st union, which was a happy one. Shortly after the death of her 1st husband she married Storey. He was then ambitious and highly respected, and did everything to make his wife happy. After the birth of the baby girl, Inez, Storey became shifless, and was continuously in trouble. He drank to excess and was known to have a mean temper.

His relatives are all highly respected and esteemed residents of Atlanta. His brothers are progressive business men and are shocked over the new of the double tragedy.

The body of Mrs. Storey was turned over to Greenberg & Bond and preapred for burial. The body of Storey was turned over to Undertaker Harry G. Poole, acting on instructions from Lester Storey, brother of the dead man.

[??] made an investigation of the double tragedy and learned from witness facts which he regarded sufficient to make an inquest unncessary.

DEPT AGRICULTURE WILL WAGE FIGHT ON CATERPILLAR ----------o---------- PEST MAY CAUSE GREAT DAMAGE TO COTTON OF THIS STATE ----------o---------- INSTRUCTIONS ARE SENT OUT TO FARMERS STATE ----------o---------- Circular sent out by United States Department of Agriculture shows that control of caterpiler is not difficult reports from several sections of the State have come to Commissioner Watson to effect that Caterpillar has made appearance. ----------o---------- Columbia, June 4.—Reports received by Commissioner Watson of the state department of agriculture indicate that the cotton caterpillar has made its appearance in several sections of the state. The first report was received from the Hitchcock farm in Aiken county. A report of the appearance of the caterpillar has also been received from the Pee Dee section of the state. The cotton caterpillar stripped practically every cotton field of the leaves in the state during the latter part of last summer.

Anticipating a return of the caterpillar the national department of agriculture recently issued a bulletin giving information as to the control of the insect. Three bulletins are being sent out by Commissioner Watson upon request. An investigation of the insect will be made by the state department of agriculture.

Instructions Issued.

The following are the instructions that have been issued on the control of the cotton caterpillar:

"The control of the cotton caterpillar is not at all difficult. The methods to be described are simple and inexpensive. Consequently there is no reason why every planter should not check the damage at the beginning.

"By far the best method of control is by the use of powdered arsenate of lead. This substance has several decided advantages over any other poison that could be used. It does not injure the foliage to any extent whatever, and adheres to the leaves in spite of considerable rainfall. In both these respects it is much to be preferred to Paris green which is likely to injure the foliage and which does not adhere to the leaves well except when mixed with flour.

"Powdered arsenate of lead should be applied at the rate of about two pounds per acre, more or less, depending upon the size of the cotton. It is best to make the application when the leaves are moist with dew, as is generally the case early in the morning. The less wind there is the less will be lost from the poison which drifts on to the ground. Therefore a calm time should be selected.

"The earlier the application of arsenicals can be made the better it will be. The planter should not wait until extensive defolliation has taken place. A watch should be kept upon the low moist areas, where the worms invariably appear first. As soon as the destruction of the leaves becomes evident in such places the poison should be applied. By this means the outbreak may be checked, and the necessity of poisoning the total acerage on the plantation may be avoided.

"After powdered arsenate of lead the best insecticide for the cotton caterpillar is Paris green. As has been indicated, however, even small amounts of this substance are likely to injure the foliage. Such injury may not become apparent until several weeks after the application. Nevertheless, the burning of the tender leaves will show eventually in the stunted condition of the plants. This difficulty may be overcome to some extent by the use of air-shaked lime and Paris green in equal parts. Whether the lime is used or not, flour should be used with the Paris green in equal parts. This will assist greatly in causing the poison to adhere to the foliage.

"London purple can also be sued, but it is much less valuable than Paris green on account of the frequent occurrence of free arsenic which causes burning of the foliage.

"White arsenic should not be used on cotton. It will kill the caterpillars, but will burn the foliage to such an extent that it does more harm than good.

"The method of application by means of sacks applied to a pole carried on horseback through the fields, which came into general use some years ago, will be bound to be perfectly satisfactory. By this means a single farm hand can poisoon two rows at a time and cover about 20 aces during a day.

"The apparatus for making the application is simple. Astrip of hardwood three inches in width, one inch thick, and one foot longer than the distance between the rows should be selected. Two one-inch holes should be bored through the stick six inches from either end. The sacks to contain the poison should be made of eight ounce duck or similar material. Flour sacks will answer the purpose, but when powdered arsenate of lead is used, two thicknesses will be required on account of the extreme fineness of the poison. The sacks should measure six by twenty inches and should be left open on one of the long sides. The open margins are then tacked on the ends of the pole forming a box

Washington, June 4.—An all inclusive beill, to be denominated "the ocean safety act of 1912," designed to cover all the navigation lessons drawn from the Titanic disaster was introduced today by Senator Nelson, of Minnesota, chairman of the commerce committee, which through a sub-committee investigated that disaster.

The bill includes stringent regulation for better wireless equipment, continuously operated, on ocean and great lake vessels carrying fifty or more persons, just as provided in a bill which passed the senate. This wireless section vests control of the apparatus in the master of the vessel, and, to avoid the wireless communication being shut off by failure of the vessel's engines, requires a powerful auxiliary power supply that can commuicate 100 miles.

The bill would recognize foreign steamship laws wherever the are as effective as American laws and regulations; would equip every passenger craft leaving an American port with sufficient lifeboats to accommodate everybody aboard, together with other safety equipment; and would create a commission of five persons to investigate hereand abroad merchant marine construction. It would require rigid [?port] examination of boat drills, define qualification of seamen; penalize failure to assist any persons in distress at sea; and make criminally liable any master, managing owner, steamship director or principal resident agent of a foreign steamship for sending from an American port a vessel so unseaworthy as to endanger life. --------------------o-------------------- Don's fail to attend the Junior Order meeting tonight. ----------o---------- STATEMENT CAMPAIGN COST.

Sandusky, O, June 4.—Defeated for re-election as a member of the Republican county central commit= tee Sergeant Charlee C. Campell of the soldiers and sailors home, filed the following statement of his campaign expenses:

"To four glasses of beer at five cents each, 20 cents.

"To one glass of beer for a fellow who said he carried the precinct in his pocket, although the returns prove that he was mistaken, 5 cents.

"Total 25 cents. That's all." _________________________________ [advertisemen for Ayers]

Anderson, June 4.—Anderson a nd Greenville divided a double header yesterday afternoon, the Spinners winning the first, 2 to 1, and the locals the second, 8 to 0. Mark Martin pitched both games for the Spinners and he was invincible in the invincible in the first. He was no match, however, in [fittery?] in the second game, the Anderson southpaw allowing only two feeble hits.

In the first game Anderson scored in the second on Biting's double and Long's error of Wolfe's grounder. The Spinners made two in the seventh, which was the last inning, when Goodman was hit by a pitched ball, followed by a double by Piez. The latter was trying to stretch the swat to a triple. Barbarac singled and Long brought him home with a three base [link?].

In the second game Anderson scored one in the first, when McCarthy singled and stole second, coming around on Gleischman's hit. Two more were added in the third, when McCarthy was hit by a pitched ball and McCoy and Owens singled in succession. In five of the seven innings of the last game Fittery was faced by only three men in each frame.

The following is the box score:

SPINNERS RANK WELL WITH REST ----------o---------- Greenville Team is Third in the Number of Hits Made, Having 270 to its Credit—Spinners Have Made Fewer Errors Than Any Other Team, Having Only .55 Chalked Up Against Her. ----------o---------- Up to an including yesterday's game Charlotte is leading in the number of hits made, with Anderson second and Greenville a close third. Few fans will probably realize that Greenville has a better fielding team than any in the league.

BUCK FLOWERS GIVEN RELEASE ----------o---------- With the Signing of Pitcher Martin It Was Necessary That One of the Pitchers Should Go and as Flowers Had Shown Little Form He was Given the Slip. ----------o---------- Buck Flowers, the invincible twirler of the 1910 Spinner team, but whose offerings this year have proven ineffective in practically all games he pitched, has been released. When Martin was signed it was necessary that one of the pitchers should go and as Buck had showed little form this season, Stouch thought best to give him the slip. Flowers' future plans are no known.

President Wells when asked how he accounted for the poor showing made by Flowers this season, stated that he did not know, unless it was lack of condition. --------------------o-------------------- STONEWALL'S RELIGION. ----------o---------- Fought the Fight of God Like True Soldier He Was.

Religion took possession of Stonewall Jackson, not suddenly, but with a gradual, fierce encroachment that in the end grasped every fibre of his being. Like a very similar [statue?] in a different sphere, John [Donse?], he examined all creeds first, but finally settled in an austere and sturdy Calvinism.

Not that his religion was gloomy or bitterly [blurry]; for it had great depths of love in it, and many possibilities of joy. But it was absorbing and he fought the fight of God with the same fury that he gave to the battles of this world. There must be no weakness, no inconsistency. "He weighed his lightest utterance in the balance of the sanctuary," writes one who knew him well. Christians are enjoined to pray.

Therefore, Jackson prayed always, even in association with the lightest act. "I never raise a glass of water to my lips without lifting my heart to God in thanks and prayer for the water of life." They must remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy. Therefore, Jackson not only refrained from writing letters on Sundays; he would not read a letter on Sunday; he even timed the sending of his own letters so they could not encumber the mails on Sunday. It was the same with a scrupulous regard for truth. Every statement, even if different, must be esact; or, if inexact, corrected. And Jackson walked a mile in the rain to set right an error of inadvertency. ________________________________ [advertisement for Gibbes Machinery Co.]

The Spinners have won seven of the last fourteen events. Anderson has had the best results of any team in the league, having won nine out of the last thirteen games. During the last two weeks Charlotte Red Sox have also been on the down [took?] a slump, only winning five out of the last eleven contests. The Red Sox have also been on the downward grade during the past couple of weeks, having won five of the past thirteen contests. Winston has broke even for the 12 games. Greensboro has won six of the last thirteen.

All the dope winners around the circuit are wondering if Anderson has struck the long-looked-for slump.

Following is what the Spartanburg Journal has to say of the situation:

"Anderson has not struck a slump. They struck a rejuvenated team, namely the Improved Red Sox. Of the three events scheduled for last week with the Electricians, the Spartans got away easily with two of them and should have made a clean sweep. The only reason a clean sweep was not made was because Watson made an error behind Hogue that resulted in [Laval?] taking him out at the wrong time. It was clearly evident that the Red Sox had the best of the argument in the first game in spite of a left wheeler, recently secured by Anderson. The Spartans have established a record for inability to hit southpaws, but on this occassion, mostly on account of the splendid work of Hogue, at every stage it looked like a victory for the Red Sox.

Anderson has a good team. In fact they have as good a team as any in the circuit. Ramsey appears to be a good manager. He has a good man in Owens on second. He is a little bulldozy on the diamond, but off the field he is one of the best

[article continues on column 5, top section]

natured fellows in the circuit.

Millman behind the bat is [jam?] up, but he gets rattled at critical stagees. This is a great failing, but he makes up to a degree in his good [balling?]. Gleishmann on first is the best in the league with the exception of Harbison. He is a little ahead of Harbison in the batting average list, but Harbison has it on him in base stealing and pegging.

Little Kely on short is only ordinary. If he has anything good in his system it was not noticable in the series just closed. Biting on third is away off. He does not rank well with others of the league.

Yount in left field is on the job. He never misses any kind and covers a lot of territory. He only got one hit in the series, but his record with the stick is good.

McCoy in right field is the big boy of the team. He is a good fielder, and usually gets a hit when they are necessary.

McCarthy in center field is probably the best man on the team. He plays ball in big league style, knows the game, does not get excited and hits at all times.

Anderson has two good pitchers. Tittery, who pitched his first game in this league on Thursday, displayed his ability. He is fortunate in being a left wheeler. He knows how to keep his head in tight places, and is a hard worker. Wolfe is a good man. He usually gets away with more than half of his games, and can be called upon at all times to save the day.

Ramsey, who is a pitcher, has won a few games. He can't get away with the Spartans, however. The games that he has won were when playing teams on the slump, and when the Electrians were hitting terrifically.

Frey is said to be a good pitcher, but he failed to show it when he pitched against the Red Sox Saturday.

Paris Prisoner Takes Magistrate on Tour to Scenes of the Crimes.

Paris, June 4.—A man named Rene Foerschler, aged 29, who is in the Sante prison awaiting trial on a charge of burglary, recently wrote to M. Poncet, the magistrate, in charge of his case, confessing to 205 other burglaries.

The magistrate at first refused to believe him, where upon the prisoner offered to take him on a personally conducted tour through the scenes of his exploits. On Tuesday, M. Poncet, the prisoner, and two policemen set out in a cab for a drive round the streets of Paris.

[column 5, bottom section]

"In the course of the day," says Le Matin, "Foerschler pointed out thirty-two houses at which he had committed burglaries. Yesterday the experiment was repeated, and the scenes of forty-two other robberies were ponted out. Tomorrow and afterward the magistrate will resume the task."

"Foerschler, has a wonderful memory. He pointed out the houses without hesitation, and even remembered little details, as for example that such and such a house formerly had no carpets. He affirms that in the course of his career he has stolen 980 watches, 1,432 earrings, 152 silver plates, 32 gas fittings, 251 tie pins, and 93 gold brooches."

"Care should be taken to determine whether the right amount of poison is being applied. This can be easily done by weighing the [pale?] and sacks before and after a known area has been treated. Unless this is done there is likely to be a waste resulting from the application of too much poison, or it may be found that the amount that is being applied is insufficient to cover the cotton. The operators should be instructed [??] that the poison falls evenly upon the plants. If too much or too little is being applied the amount can be easily regulated properly by varying the amount so jarring is the pole. It is important that the sacks do not come to contact with the cotton leaves. If they do the poison will not pass through readily and it will be found that the amount applied is too small.

"Arsonate of lead and the other arsenicals to which reference has been made are violent poisons, but there is no danger of their use on cotton if a few common-sense precautions are taken. The only cases of poisoning of domestic animals known have been where stock was allowed to break into the cotton field, soon after poisoning or where some of the poison was carelessly thrown upon the grass. The only precautions that are necessary are to keep live stock out of the fields after poisoning and to avoid throwing any of the poison on vegetation that will be devoured by live stock. It is advisable in some cases to muzzle the mules upon which the riders are mounted when the application is being made.

"There is practically no danger of poisoning live stock after one or two heavy rains, after an interval of about three weeks have elapsed.

"The arsenical poisons aggravate wounds or [gotes?] on man or domestic animals. Consequently all places where the skin has been broken should be covered by some means, or at any rate washed carefully after the work has been done. In order to avoid the possibility of injury to the mules, it is advisable to throw several buckets of water over them after the work is done.

"For the control of the cotton worm the use of powdered arsenate of lead at the rate of two pounds per acre is advised above all other means. The substance does not need to be mixed with lime and [??] as described.

"The work of poisoning the insect should be undertaken as soon as injury becomes apparent in any portions of the fields. By this [??] the expense of control will be largely reduced.

"In regions where the boll weavil is abundant, the planter should take care no to poison the catarpiller too early. If he does so the production will certainly be reduced. Where

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.

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.

The concert was marked by an unusual display of ability on the part of the members of the school and excellence in the rendition of difficult classic selections which has called forth words of commendation from all admirers of music.

The concert began last night at 8:30 at which hour the large auditorium of the college was crowded to its utmost capacity despite the fact that exercises were also in progress at Furman University. For nearly two hours the members on the program delightfully entertained the audience with an artistic rendition of instrumental and vocal selections. Special words of praise cannot be givn to any without slighting others and space forbids a consideration of all, but suffice it to say that the work of each student would have done credit to any southern music school. The appearance of the Glee Club was a feature not always introduced upon such occasions and was thoroughly enjoyed.

Following was the program rendered.

Carmena, Wilson—Glee Club. Guitarre, [Moszkowski?]—Annie Mae Bryant. Cavatina, Raff—Rov Hartley. Rigoletta, Verdi-Liszt—Mamie Jones. [Solveigs?] Song, I Love Thee, Grieg—Ruby Bennett. Etude on 25 No. 7, Etude on 10 No. 5, Chopin—Myrtle Lanford. Magical June, Hilton-Turvey— Mae Niell Pocent. Polonaise Op. 53, Chopin — Hortense Marchant.

The Alumni are, of course, interested in all the exercises of the University but to them this annual banquet is the crowning event. Unlike the other banquets which are held in different parts of the state where former students of certain counties meet, this annual event at Furman is for all former students of every county and every state wherever they may be located.

Special tributes will be provided for all classes in which cases there are enought members present to occupy a table. Even when there are only a few members of a class in attendence, a special effort will be made to place them at the same table.

A snappy program has been arranged by the committee. The responses to toasts will be interspersed with music funished by the University Glee Club and orchestra. This will be one of the most delightful features of the program.

All who expect to attend the banquet are requested to assemble on the porch of the dormitory building promptly at 8:15 to form a line before going to the dining hall.

The young men acquitted themselves most creditably, their oratory showing the result of hard work and careful direction. These young men conceive the greater part of their training in oratory in their respective literary societies and their work last night was ample support to Furman's claim to the best college literary societies in the state.

The speeches were interspersed with musical selections. The committee of judges, composed of Messrs. H. K. Townes, H. H. Harris and Rev. S. T. Matthews prepared its decision last night, but announcement of the same will not be made until the closing exercise Wednesday evening at which time the Wharton and MccMillan medals will be awarded to the successful contestants in the respective contests.

Following is a list of the speakers and their subjects according to the program which was rendered.

Wharton Contest.

Harper Ballentrie—"Opporunities of the Scholar."

W. L. Bales—"The Path of History."

J. D. Dusenberry—"Spartacus to the Roman Envoys at [Eutruia?]."

J. A. Brown—"The Speech That Made History."

McMillan Contest.

C. V. Brown—"Not Guilty."

O. C. Scarborough—"The Death of LaFayette."

J. H. [Potheat?]—"Washington's Inauguration."

L. D. Mitchell—"Lincoln's Ideal." --------------------o-------------------- SCHOLARSHIP AND ENTRANCE EXAMINATIONS TO CLEMSON ----------o---------- Scholarships and entrance examinations to Clemson College will be held at the Greenville county court house on July 12th, 9 a. m.

Tampa, Fla., June 4.—A frenzied appeal for help came to the police station from way out on Nebraska avenue this morning. It was represented first that there was a dead woman lying in the street under a tree.

Then came word that it had been possible to resucitate her. As the place was outside the city limits Constable Lesley Evans was sent out on the case. He found that the woman was far from being dead. She was considerably frayed and bedraggled and said that she went out for an automobile ride with a man last night and a difference of opinion developed. He told her she might walk home and she asserted that she thought herself fully equal to the job. Much to her disgust he put her out of the auto and went on his way. She started in but it was farther than she had expected and she went to sleep under a tree.

Evans brought the woman to the police station and finally turned her loose. --------------------o-------------------- AMERICANS ARE SET FREE. ----------o---------- Evidence Lacking Against Miller and Motley, Accused in London of Fraud.

London, June 4.—Clark A. Miller and Alfred H. Motley, formerly of New York were discharged because of lack of evidence, when arraigned, accused of larceny. Officers of the United States Lithographing company of New York and Cincinnati, charged that a lithographing process for which they paid the defendants $100,000 did not prove to be as represented.

The magistrate freed both men, in spite of a warrant from the New York police department, endorsed by President Taft and Secretary Knox, of the Department of State. _________________________________ COULD YOU USE A WANT AD.

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.

[column 5, middle section]

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. W. Gray. This was due to the fact that the salesday crowed was a slender one. Four sales were made amounting to $576.

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.

Washington, June 3.—Attorney General Wickersham has authorized a Federal grand jury inquiry at San Diego, Cal., into activities of Industrial Workers of the World, in response to an appeal from the city authorities, who charged violation of Federal laws by seditious activity, and also violation of American neutrality in connection with statements regarding Mexico.

The Department of Justice, aside from the protest of the San Diego local authorities, have been watching the situation for several weeks. --------------------o-------------------- A STATEMENT ----------o---------- In Saturday's Issue of The Daily Piedmont it was stated that Attorney A. H. Dean had been employed to defend T. U. Vaughn, who is charged with rape. This was an error. Mr. Dean is not connected with the case.

The Piedmont's story was published upon information secured from Vaughn. --------------------o-------------------- CARNEGIE HUMILIATED ----------o---------- Republican [Row?] Grieves Him, He Tells English Reporters.

Liverpool, June 3.—On arrival of the White Star liner Celtic at Liverpool today Mr. Carnegie, when interviewed by Englished reporters, said:

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

Sure We Don't.

Winston-Salem Journal. Says the Greenville Piedmont: There is a baseball player in Asheville, N. C., named [Hume?]. We don't believe that Manager Tommie Stouch should have such a player on the Greenville team."

[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.

Marking the Bride's Linen

WHEN a bride starts work on her household linen — the process of marking — there are several questions that arise. She may be at a loss to just what initials to place on the linen, she may not know the correct size letters to use on the various pieces, or where to place them. These problems have been confronting June brides for years and years, and often it takes considerable [delaying?] to bring out the desired [blurry].

It is the custom to always mark a bride's linen with the initials of her maiden name. Of course, it is possible that fashions may change— although never radically—regarding the size or the placing of the letters, but the rule of using the bride's initials has never been altered and probably never will be. She may use one or two, just as she pleases; but she should use neither letter of her new name. Through the ages it has been the custom to place the initials of the maiden name on all linen, for the simple reason that while the linen is being prepared the maid still retains that name. She has not taken up her married name, and therfore the linen is really given to her while she is unmarried.

At present the letters of a tablecloth should be approximately two inches in length, and the letter should come just within the edge of the table. On a square cloth the initial should be placed at one corner, but almost any location will answer for the round cloth. Napkins are always marked in one corner, usually about three inches from the edge, with the letters about three-quarters of an inch in length. Sheets are always marked on the upper edge in the center, three inches from the hem, and the initials

[article continues on middle section, column 2]

should be about two inches in length.

In most instances pillow slips are marked to match the sheets in letters from one inch to one and onehalf inches in length. It is a rule to mark sideboard cloths with the letters from one to two inchese in length. The letters are placed in such a manner that they may be seen on the sideboard. They may be located at one end and half way across the cloth. If the sideboard cloth is decorated with emproidery of the eyelet variety the inital can be worked in the same way, using a similar stitch—small eyelets and seed stiches.

Many brides of the season have taken up a [blurry] manner of marking the household linen—that of working the letters out of plain, white net. This plan is a very decorative one and is not at all hard to do. In the first place the initial to be embroid-

[article continues on middle section, column 3]

ered is stamped on the linen and backed by the net. Then the thread is taken very carefully around the angles of the letters, and then the linen is cut carefully away. All edges are buttonholed down to the linen, leaving a transperent letter outlined with very heavy buttonholling. The edges of the net are trimmed away when the work is finished.

In order to make the whole more effective, a good plan is to embroider a small wreath or spray about the letters.

Regarding the proper initials for the household linen, it might be said that the bride's initials should be placed on almost all of her possessions, especially those received before her wedding. She should not forget that her maiden initials should be placed even on her going-away trunk and suitcase.

Mr. Justwed Has a Hundred Thousand Dollars - For One Minute

That there could be any possible connection between the making of money and a little domestic squabble meams scarcity evident. Oh, no, not making in the sense of earning for, ye gods and a little [blurry] aren't nearly all domestic misunderstandings based upon that fact—not in the sense of actually manufacturing money. The Justweds found the connection the other day while sight-seeing in the Bureau of Engraving and Printing at Washington whither, you recall, they had gone for a little Springtime jaunt.

Not that money itself nor the making of it was responsible for the little difference—oh, no. It must have been Mr. Justwed's — well —natural married man perseverances. At least, Mrs. J. is of that opiniom. In addition, she felt thoroughly justified in demonstrating for his benefit the truth of the old adage, "What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander."

For the convenience of tourists in the Capital of the Nation and to prevent vast theft by visitors they have a corps of trained guides at the Bureau to [plant?] them around the building and explain the many interesting phases of the making of our paper currency. Parties of a dozen or more are led by a guidealways a woman are led by a guide—always a woman —through they rooms where the dies are engraved, where the printing is done, where it is packed in special boxes to be carried to the Treasury. The guides are, naturally, only human and their explanation can be either perfunctory or extremely enlightening. Much depends upon their frame of mind and the people in their respective parties though, to be rare,

[article continues on top section, column 3]

enough to show frequent repetition can cover the subject by rule without even thinking about it.

As such Mr Justwed must needs make himself a little different from the rest of the party, assume a portion of the management of the affair

[text split by image of Mr. Justwed and the guide]

She made a hit with Mr. J. instantly.

and in the vernacular, "start something." He did—from the insight he saw the guide detailed to conduct the party of which the Justweds were interested spectators.

She was an exceedingly fetching guide. She wasn't old and she hadn't been in the Government service long

[article continues on top section, column 4]

enough to show the unmistakable earmarks of the grind of it all. She was pretty, dainty, stylish, what you will. This point is she made a hit with Mr. J. instantly.

But this is just between us two, for naturally, Mr. J wouldn't admit it for

[text split by image of Mr. Justwed and the guide]

a minute. Husband like he explained to Mrs. Justwed later that he was "jollying her along" solely to secure better service for the—ahem— entire party!

Mrs. J. even agreed that such magnanimity was indeed commendable but inquired immediately if he didn't think a man bad to possess a pretty big bump of conceit to imagine his presence could produce that effect upon a woman who sees a hundred or so men every day! Whereupon—but that was the aftermath, not the incident.

"Come this way, please," said the pretty guide to the party as a whole, in quite her most efficient tone. Nor did she cease at any time to be official; the other was entirely on Mr. Justwed's part. None of them over do.

"Certainly," answered Mr. J., taking the request entirely to himself. And he placed himself directly at her side as she led them down the long corridor.

When she showed them a case of [dies?] from which money was printed Mr. J. was right at her elbow with a dozen or more questions. And when she then led them to an elevator to be lifted to the floor on which the printing is done who was it stood aside gallantly and insisted that she enter before he did? Who? Why, Homer Justwed to be sure!

He wanted to know all about the ink. How it was made, why it was green, did it permanently stain the fingers, could it be manufactured by any one except Uncle Sam? To all his quaries the guide gave him courteous, pleasant, formal answers— that's what she was paid to do!

Then he self-[blurry] spokesman for the party—evinced extreme interest in her work. Was it tiresome? How long were her hours? How many guides were employed? Did she ever have "frank" people to deal with? What—some fresh ones, too! Well, well!

That proved too much for Mrs. J— who had followed along quietly with the rest of the party all the while. She bit her lip, ground her heel in the floor and vowed to get even with Mr. J.

Then the fair guide led them to the

[article continues on top section, column 5]

room in which the pages of printed notes are assorted, counted and bundled ready for delivery to the Treasury Department. Mr. J. at once became an animated interrogation mark. He explained that he was accustomed to seeing money in large

[text split by image of Mr. Justwed and the guide]

quantities since he was cashier of a bank in his home town. But he acknowledged this beat anything he had ever seen before.

Was any of it ever stolen? What— every single bit of paper, printed and unprinted, had to be accounted for each night before any of the employees were allowed to leave the building? Well, well—that was indeed worse

[article continues on top section, column 6]

than having to balance the books every evening. Did she —

But at that point the dainty guide interrupted to lift a pile of notes from the table on which they reposed and explained to the party that any one who wished might hold them for a minute or so—just "to see how it feels to have a hundred thousand dollars in your hands at one time."

Obviously, Mr. J. would have been the first to try it—but a grinning countryman, his eyes wide with wonder, beat him to it. Several of the women in the party screamed in mock dismay as they gingerly supported the small fortune for a second or two. Then it was passed to Mr. J.

"Hey, [Blossom?]," he said, turning to find Mrs. Justwed. "If we duly had an airship now we'd sail right out of here and—"

But Mr. J. was not in the party!

Mr. J. gasped a moment and suddenly lost all interest in the hundred thousand and the guide.

For there, in the room they had just left, was Mrs. Justwed deep in conversation with a lusty, handsome young printer who was solicitously and eagerly explaining to her the gentle art of printing the currency of the realm!

That she was immensely interested was plainly evident from her close attention and the sweet smiles with which she rewarded his efforts every now and then.

Indeed, it was only after Mr. J. had called her name three times that she looked up.

Then she remarked much as one does when interrupted at a pleasing task, "Oh, is it you?"


[top section, column 7] Fashion Note

The art of dreaming will come chiefly in choosing from his the numerous styles which offered for consideration names that will suit the individually of wearer.

With a couple of tub frocks the [woman] with a moderate dress allowance [will] always be well attired on sum[mer] mornings and if these are kept st[rict-] ly for outdoor wear it is astoni[shing] how long they will keep fresh, [and] they save the afternoon frocks immensely. A smarter version of cotton frock is in mercerlized and foulard, which comes in dull p[astel] blues and grays made with a b[ib] top and hem of self-color, which exactly like foulards.

Silk covered hairpins are a nov[elty] and have the great advantage of [not] slipping out of the hair. They [are] made in eight shades—gray, and two shades of golden and four [shades] of brown. They are becoming [more] popular every day. ---------------------------o--------------------------- Shields for the Kimono Sleev[es]

EVERY woman has experien[ced] the difficulty of imperling dr[esss] shields in a kimono sle[eves,] blouse or bodice. The shields [will] not lie flat, even when sewed in several places, and the drawing the sewed in shield is sure to [have] the effect of the outside of the bl[ouse.] A resourceful little woman has [come] upon a clever idea. She takes lingerie blouses that have begun [to] show signs of wear around the sh[oul-] ders; cuts off the sleeves above [the] elbow and removes the collar, [cut-] ting away the blouse at the top [of] a corset cover. In this lingerie she sews the shield securely and [the] outer blouse is protected without [be-] ing pulled or drawn by having [the] shield sewed to its fabric.

Facts Concerning the Baby

GREAT care should be exercissed in the bathing of the baby. The bath usually consists of an application of olive oil, and as soon as the baby is born it is wrapped warmly in a soft blanket. During the oiling process, only one portion of the tiny body is exposed to the air at a time. In this way chilling is avoided. Only one or two tablespoons of olive oil are necessary for the bath. This is slightly warmed and is applied to the skin with a soft cloth. Then it is wiped off with another soft cloth, and the skin is found to be clear and clean. For the first few days of its life the baby should be oiled every morning, and the eyes treated with a boric acid solution. When King Baby is two weeks old he may be given a

[image of woman pushing stroller down street, spans cols. 5-6]

[article continues on middle section, column 6]

[blurry] milk every morning. But the tub bath should be avoided for a longer time in case the baby is poorly nourished, the olive oil baths being kept up for a longer time.

A baby's stomach is a very delicate instrument, as most mothers have discovered, and thus there is a necessity for a strict diet. The very young baby is unable to digest much except milk, and if the stomach is constantly imposed upon by being forced to take foreign substances, it rebels and will never do its work properly. Improper food often causes sickness and death, while in other cases the stomach may be permanently injured. Until a baby is fully a year old, it should live almost entirely on good, pure milk.

It also requires a moderate amount

[article continues on middle section, column 7]

of water each day. Physicians [agree] that the only addition to the [diet] should be a teaspoonful of juice once a day, after the baby [is ?] months of age. When the baby [is a] year old a little prune juice or of baked apple may be given each day. Gradually other articles [of] food may be added to the diet. These must be things that are [easily] digested by so tender a stomach. [The] baby should be urged to drink [plenty] of water between meals, but it sh[ould] never be given ice water.

Special care should be taken in [the] selection of the milk for the [baby.] In case it is cow's milk, it should [come] from a reliable dairy. Those who [have] made a study of baby food [blurry] milk from Jersey or Guernsey cat[tle is] usually too rich for babies. The [milk] must be kept strictly clean and [free] from contaminating odors. [Bottle] and milk pans should be [soaked] every day with hot water in whi[ch a] little baking soda has been [blurry]. Afterward they can be rinsed in [clean,] fresh water. Absoslute [blurry] the care of the milk is temperat[ive.] ---------------------------o--------------------------- FOR KITCHEN APRONS.

WHEN making aprons for kit[chen] wear it is a good plan to [add] an extra thickness of the [ma-] terial just across the front below [the] waist, as this part of the garment [??] elves the greatest wear. Then, [when] the outside becomes thin, there is [a] patch all ready and faded to the [same] shade as the apron. This plan [can] also be carried out to advantge [when] making sleeves for children's dr is the little elbows soon c through.

Afternoon Cards.

Miss Clifford Irvine charmingly entertained on Saturday afternoon, this being a pretty compliment to Mrs. William Gilreath's house guests, Mrs. W. E. Adams and Miss Allen from Thomaston, Ga., Mrs. Tiller, of Washington D. C., and Miss Hines, of Atlanta.

The Irvine home on Hampton avenue was thrown open and was particularly attractive with the added beauty and fragrence of quantities of Dorothy Perkins roses which were sent from Miss Addison's exquisite flower garden. There were pale vases of lovely sweet peas in all thick delicate colors.

Before the game was begun a most refreshing punch was sered by Miss Cordelia Moore, who also assisted Miss Irvine in scoring. An enthusiastic game of progressive euchre was played, after which the cards were cut for the consolation, which was won by Miss Eleanor Furman, she with the honor guests each receiving a lovely cottage bouguet of sweet peas.

An ice course was served on the card tables.

This was one of the most enjoyable of the lovely affairs given by Miss Irvine, who entertains with a charming grace and ease of manner.

Her guests included, besides the honor guests, Mrs. Frank Robinson, Jr., Mrs. Fred Eubanks, Mrs. Thomas McAdoo, Mrs. Richard Sullivan, Mrs. Harry Harris, Misses Hattie and Sarah Rowley, Miss Eliza Killian, Miss Elaine Thompson, Miss Eleanor Furman, Miss Stuart, of Virginia, Misses Virginia and [Bug?] Morris, Miss Lucy Poe, Miss Lurin Bean, Miss Theodora Hayne, Miss Rita Richardson, Miss Corinne Goodlett, Miss Eudora Ramsey, Miss Louise [cut off]

MRS. POWELL IS NOW HAPPY ----------o---------- Her Miserable Experience For More Than Four Months Enables Her to Appreciate Good Health. ----------o---------- Dry Ridge, Ky.—"I am so happy," writes Mrs. Lydia Powell, from this place, "to be well. I was so poorly that I was almost dead. I had a pain in my left side. My stomach was weak and I was just a skeleton! Our family doctor treated me for four months, but I did not get any better.

I had heard so much about Cardui, the woman's tonic, that I thought I would give it a trial. Now, I am thankful for wonderful help I have received from it. I believe if I had not taken Cardui, I would have been dead or crazy now. My health is very much improved.

When I commenced to take Cardui, I could hardly walk across the room. Now I can walk four miles and do my work with a great deal more ease. I will always recommend Cardui to all suffering women. I owe my life and health to Cardui, and I cannot praise it enough for the good it has done me."

Cardui has a record of more than 50 years' success as a medicine—a tonic—for weak, tired, worn-out women.
