ON MOUNTAIN SIDE
Wife of Former President of Purdue
1 ^ University Wu Very
V rr? V
Banff, Alberta, July 29.?The
story of haw Mrs. W. E. Stone, wife
of the former president of Purdue
university, dangled at the end of a
j rope in a midair and then drop exhausted
on a four foot ledge the only
break in a precipitous cliff hunAvoAo
nf foot after an unsuc
cessful attempt to save her husband
who had fallen into a crevice below,
was revealed today in dispatches received
here from the correspondent
of the Calgary Herald.
Mrs. Stone is now In an improvised
camp on the mountain side recovvering
froan the experience of flying
on the tiny ledge for eight days
qrfthout food or water until rescued
by Rammer, a Swiss guide, who carried
her down the steep mountain
ode to safety.* The correspondent
told how she watched her husband
fall as they were attempting to climb
Mount Eanon and then attwnpted to
lower herself with the rope in the
hope of rescuing him. The rope, however,
was too short and after hanging
alongside the mountain and finding
she was unable to pull herself
back up, she let go, expecting to
plunge to her death in the abyss below.
Fate intervened and she land
ed on the narrow ledge, a drop of
'ten feet. Members of the party that
rescued Mrs. Stone are building a
^ aaft to convey her JJown the Marvel
lakes, the first stage of th'e 55 mile
trip to civilization. The search for
iDr. Stone's body has proved unavailing
and members of the rescue party
arje nearly exhausted from their efforts
to find him. It is probable that
the body will be left until another
' and better equipped searching party
can be organized.
Mrs. Stone is still weak, btft Dr.
Bell of Winnipeg, who has been with
4 her sdnce^ she was found on Sunday,
is confidentthat she/is npw out of.

PEACH SHIPMENTS LARGE
Watermelons Crop Exceed All Fo
Atlanta, Ga., July 30.?Shipmen1
of peaches and watermelons fra
Georgia for the 1921 season
surpassed all previous records. A
cording to figures compiled toy tl
Southern Railway System from of
cial sources, 10,264 cars of peach*
had been shipped from Georgia u
to July 22, and thee rop is expect*
to run above 10y500 cars. In 192
Georgia .shipped 5,663 ^cars <
peaches. With a great part of ti
watermelons still to foe shippe
Gerogia has already passed the tot
for 1920. Up to July 16, Georg
had shipped 10,110 cars of wate
melons and shipments since the
have run above 150 cars per day
These results show that there wi
no ground for apprehensions e:
pressed early in the season that tl
Georgia peaches and melons wou
not move this year. Prices receivt
by growers have been quite satisfa
tory. The Atlanta Journal estimati
the return received by Georgia gro\
ers from these two craps so far i
ten million dollars. Favorable weati
er conditions, improved transport
tion facilities, and better methods <
marketing are among theN facto:
which' have contributed to the su

In company with several persons
1S from Bennettsville, Mr. Whitner
K" went to the nearby pond about 5
10 o'clock this afternoon. Those in the
party say that for some time Mr.
:c* Whitner was in bathing with them
c" in the mill race, tha't he then stated
58 that he was going to the mill house
v~ to dress. Mr. Whitner was seen to
" leave the pool and to start towards
k" the pond on the other side of the
B" mill dam. He was kit seen alive by
^ a young man Who stated that he met
re Mr. Whitner while* going from the
c" pond to the race. It Is supposed that
Mr. Whitner suddenly decided to go ,
in the pond before dressing, and
that he stepped in a hole and went
? down in the water over his head.
r There was no one in the pond at the
time 'he was last seen, so there were
^ no eye witnesses to the drowning.
' Mr. Whitner was not missed for
time. When the rest of the parL6
^ ty prepared to leave they found that
>r he had not left, his clothes -being1
found in the mill house. Search was
immediately .begun vflth the result |
:r that his body was ^poind in the pond,
in seven feet of wateT aT>out 25 feet
e from the mill dam.
Mr. Whitner was one of <the best
18 known of Beniiettsville's business!
^ men and numbered his friends by'
l r ' l
the hundreds. He had been a resiy
dent of Bennettsville for a number;
of years and was widely known ',
throughout this section. He was I
