places upon the act :

noon today at the Rockingham
hotel, to which place she came as
a guest in early part of the Pier's
She had been ill for several weeks,
and a fortnight ago her ailment
was diagnosed as malarial gastritis.
At times her condition became
serious, so that consultations of
physicians were deemed necessary,
but frequent railies gave renewed
hope that she would ultimately
During this week, especially,
was her condition considered
favorable, and it was thought that
her removal from the hotel would
be possible in a few days, as the
hotel had closed for the season,
leaving the patient and attendants
practically alone in the house.
La?t night, however, a relapse
in Miss Davis' condition was
noticed, and throughout the night
she lost strength perceptibly.
This morning the physician
said that the end was not far off,
and at noon death came to end
the suffering, which, at times, had
been intense. Mrs. Davis had
watched unremittingly at her
daughter's bedside, and she is now
bowed with sorrow.
Mre. Davis is holding up with
great calmness in ber affliction,,
and no fears are at present
entertained of her health yielding
to the strain.

Winnie Davis, the "Daughter of
the Confederacy," was born in the
Confederate executive mansion at
Richmond, in 1863. She waB
educated principally at home,
owing to the trouble surrounding
her father and the publicity which
attended all movements of the
Davis family. Miss Davis attained
her maturity at Beauvoir, Miss.
Here she assisted her mothor in
various ways and took her place
in the many social functions of
the place. She was her father's
constant companion. She assisted
him in all his work, and much Of
the information which was requir
by Mr. Davis in his writings
was secured for him by his
daughter. Her strong character
was marked from youth. She was
engaged to Mr. Wilkerson, of Sy
racuse N. Y., but shortly after her
father's death, the engagement was
broken off. While no public ex
planation of tho rupture was given
out, it is well known that it was
for the. purpose of maintaining
her father's name.
She received the name, "Daugh
ter of the Confederacy," in 1886,
when her father made his famous
trip through the " south. Mr.
Davis being unable to appear,
Miss Winnie Alas brought before
the thousands at the different
points along the route and in

Captain Self, on Monday, kindly
gave The Journal his experiences
in euring peavine hay.
Two years ago he tried the
method as an experiment. He
mowed the vines in the morning
and let them lie until the afternoon
of next day, when, if no rain had
fallen, he raked the hay into cocks,
The next morning, as soon as the
dew had dried off, he hauled the
cocks to his barn lot and packed
the vines into rail pens ten feet
square, having a heavy man to
tramp them in, putting seven two
horse loads to a pen.
On the third morning after the
vines had been packed into the
pens, smoke was seen issuing from
every crevice and the vines were
found so hot one cjuld scarcely
bear his hand on them. The smoke
or steam, continued to issue from
the pen3 until the fifth morning
after they were packed, then it
Captain Self naturally concluded
that his experiment was a failure,
but when he opened the pens in
the winter he fouud the . hay
beautifully cured. It was nice,
bright, sweet and absolutely free
from mustiness and not a leaf fell
from the vine.
Last year he used the same
method, with the same result.
. Captain Self says the vines
should be so tightly packed around
the edges as to exclude the air and |
the vines should be weighted down
and tho pens well covered. His!
plan is to lay rails across the topi
of the pen and top this off with
"Get out of here and let me
alone!" cried Sal Smith, to her
lover Jake Jones, who sat about
ten feet from her pulling dirt from
the chimney jam.
"I airf t touching on you, Sal I"
''No! nor you don't mean to

"'Cause you'r too trarnel scary,

"Sal ! now if you don't let me
stay and court you, my dad will

"Well, Jake, if you want to stay I

"Well," said Jake after drawing
a long breath, "if I must, I must,
for I love you, Sal."
So he commenced sliding up to I

battle, gently laying his arm?
around Sal's shoulders. We heard
Sal say, "That's the,way to do it,,
