SEABAD PARALLtL HIGWAY
Bankhead National Highway Works
to Build Hard Surface Road all
the Way Across the Country.
Clinton.-The Clinton CoImaedcial
club devoted its entire session to the
holding of a convention looking to
the organization of an association to
promote the development of what is
temporarily called the Seaboard Par
allel highway, connecting the Quebec
to Miami highway, which passes
through Cheraw, from that point to
Athens, Ga., where connection is
made with the Bankhead highway.
TAeans that tourists from San Di
al., following the Bankhead na
tional highway, can make an alter
nate route at Athens, Ga., via the Sea
board Parallel when built to Cheraw,
then by the Quebec to Miami highway
up to Raleigh, where the Bankhead
national highway and the Quebec to
Miami highways join. This means al
so a connection at Cheraw with the
Wilmington, N. C., highway, easy ac
cess through Cheraw to the upper
Pee Dee section of South Carolina.
Eventually this highway will probably
become a very important factor in
the development of the South. The
Bankhead national highway is now
working to raise money for a hard
surface road all the way from Wash
ington to San Diego, Cal. Clinton is
particularly fortunate in being located
strategically along the proposed Sea
board Parallel between the Bankhead
and Quebec to Miami highways, form
erly known as capital to capital high

wide and an empty reservoir. The
dam was completed only a few weeks

SATISFIED WITH THE TEST
After Somewhat Belated Proof of the
Purity of the Liquor, Brothers
Slept in Peace.
"Testing" corn liquor is one of the
most frequent .preliminaries to con
viviality these days, it is rumored, al
leged, indicated and otherwise noised
abroad. Lightnin' that burns with a
white flame is supposed to be danger
ous, to contain wood alcohol, and to
otherwise be undesirable; shine that
burns blue is supposed to be the hon
est effort of a master-maker of spirits.
Sometimes, however, zeal for drink
overcomes caution, even of this un
certain sort, with the result that the
following occurred a few nights ago.
Two young brothers in mild iniquity
secured themselves a pint. They, be
ing fairly law-abiding in other re
spects, went to their room to drink it.
They drank it, at least, most of it,
and became somewhat affected by its
presence with them. They undressed,
turned out the light and retired. After
about 20 minutes, one aroused himself
and called to the other.
"Say, wake up, we didn't test that
"Well, must do it," was the drowsy
reply, "won't do drink it 'thout testin'
They arose, turned on the light,
found the drop or two of liquor left
in the flask, poured it on a hand-mir
ror, touched a match to it with due
solemnity and care, saw the blue flame
and returned to their beds absolutely
HE GOT THE "BUG LETTER"
Discovery That Made the' Victim
Madder Than Before He Sent
in Original "Kick"
There is probably no easier way to
get a laugh out of an average Amer
ican audience than to mention an
Englishman's sense of humor, and to
read what an American may have to
say about tie British humor may be
exasperating to an Englishman, but
the reverse is not always true. An
Englishman, J. C. Squire, for instance,
may write about American jokes and
not be the least bit irritating. In his
"Life and Letters" Mr. Squire's chap
ter, "Goaks and Humour," contains
several fine American jokes, and
among them is one that concerns a
traveler on a sleeping car who had
written a complaint to headquarters
about the presence of vermin in his
"He received back from the ad
ministrative head a letter of immense
effusiveness. Never before had such
a complaint been lodged against this
scrupulously careful line, and the man
agement would have suffered any loss
rather than cause annoyance to so
distinguished a citizen as, etc., etc.
He was very delighted with this ab
ject apology. But as he was throw
ing away the envelope there fell out
a slip of paper which had, apparent
ly, been inclosed by mistake. On it
was a memorandum: 'Send this guy
the bug letter.'"
Relic of Glacial Age.
Devil's Pulpit, located about two
miles east of Batavia, N. 7., is a relic
of the giacial age. It is a huge mass
of rock shaped like an hour glass.
and is one of the most peculiar and
striking natural formations in the
whole state. The base is fully 30 feet
across. It slopes upward to a nar
row rock, corresponding to the neck
through which the sands of an hour
glass sift, and then broadens out to
form what looks like the upper cham
ber of the glass. It is composed of
limestone and stands 20 feet in height.
The nearest bedrock like it is five
miles away to the north, and ge
ologists believe this means that the
rock was torn loose from its original
mother vein and dragged those five
miles by the big glacier that swept
down from the polar regions ages
ago. Natural erosion did the carving
that gives it the hour-glass contour.
New Timekeeper Clock.
Boiling eggs, developing photographs,
or any other operation that requires
.iort but accurate account of time,
may be allowed to proceed without at
tention through the use of a novel
clock, described in Popular Mechanics.
The four-inch dial is at the top, and
in the lower part of the case is a
vertical scale, reading up to 90 min
utes in one-minute divisions, and car
rying a small slide that is set by hand.
At the end of the period set, a four
inch gong on the back rings until it
is shut off. Though a valuable addi
tion to the home kitchen, the new time
keeping clock is intended especially as
a labor-saving accessory for hotel and
restaurant kitchens, photo galleries,
laboratories and other places where
the measurement of minutes is needed.
Snapping Movie Picture.
Usually 150,000 to 200,000 feet are
run through the cameras to get a six
reel, or 6,000-foot motion picture. The
director stations three, four or five
cameras to take the same scene. He
has one camera close beside the strug
gling villain and hero, another grind-I
ing from an elevation, still another at
this angle, one more at that angle.
When all of these negatives are de
veloed, parts of each enter into the
comositlon of the completed reel.
