Capt. 'Kit' Dalton of Jesse
James Fame is Dead.
Memphis, Tenn., Apr. 3.-Captain
"Kit" Dalton said to have been the
last surviving member of Quantrell's
band of guerillas of civil war fame,
and credited with having: been a close
associate of Frank and Jesse James,
died at his home here today. He was
77 years old.
Dalton recently wrote a book tell
ing intimately of the exploits of the
James and other adventurous bands
which operated in the south and
southeast after the war between the
states. For several years, it is related,
a price of $50,000 was set upon his
head by the governors of five states,
but he never was captured. Instead,
he with Frank James is said to have
surrendered and stood trial for the
robbery of a train near Franklin,
Ky., under a tacit understanding that
charges pending in other states would
stand or fall on the result of that
trial. He was acquitted. The other
charges were dropped and he later
removed to Memphis where he has
lived for more than 30 years.
During the early years of the war
Dalton was a member of Forest's
cavalry but later joined Quantrell.
While with Gen. Forest's command,
he won the rank of captain.
Captain Dalton was a native of Lo
gan County, Kentucky.
Japanese Become More of
Menace to West Coast.
Cleveland, O., Apr. 3.-Japanese
birth rate in California is so high and
their standard of living so low that
any immigration policy rather than
exclusion will result in the ultimate
destruction of the American popula
tion in the west, if not the whole
United States, V. S. McClatchy, pub
lisher of the Sacramento Bee assert
ed today in a luncheon address be
fore th?1 city club.
"The Japanese have neither the
ability, the desire nor the power un
der their government to become citi
zens of this country," Mr. MrClatchy
They are unassimilable. They do
not care for citizenship. Their gov
ernment expects Japanese in this
country to remain loyal to the coun
try of their fathers ano they are loy
al to Japan."
The chief objection to the Japan
ese is not racial antipathy but the
knowledge that their economic ad
vantages make it hopeless for the
white race to compete with them, Mr. |
', Waterglacs Keeps Eggs.
Clemson College, Apr. 5.-One
way in which our housekeepers who
figure carefully can save money is by
putting down in waterglass a quanti
ty of eggs at this season of the year
.when eggs are abundant and cheap.
The best results are obtained when
eggs from the housekeeper's flock are
preserved by being placed in a solu
tion of waterglass each day as laid.
Thei'e is no chance for bad eggs get
ting in the supply and injuring all
the eggs in that container. In fact
only one bad egg in a jar holding ten
do;:en will ruin all the eggs in that
Many persons, however, have no
hens around home and consequently
must depend on eggs purchased from
others. It is usually possible to obtain
these eggs from a reliable source and
to put them in the solution two or
three days after laying. This is quite
satisfactory. If there is any doubt as
io the freshness of the eggs, they
should be candled, advises Professor
Hare of the Poultry Division of Clem
son College, and only those preserved
that are absolutely clear with the ex
ception of the indistinct darker por
tion in the center, which is the yolk
of the egg. If there is a large spot or
substance moving around inside of
the egg, or if there is a large air cell
at one end, the egg should be reject- .
A clean stone jar is the most sat
isfactory container. An eight gallon
jar is sufficient for about eighteen ,
dozen eggs. Rainwater should be boil
ed and when cool one part of water
. glass is mixed with ten parts of the
boiled water. It is not necessary to
"boil city water or drinking water.
'The crock is thoroughly cleaned and
iscalded, then half filled with the wa- ?
iterglass mixture. Dirty eggs, or eggs
that have been washed should not be
used. The eggs should be placed in
the crock until those at the top are
covered by at least two inches of the
liquid. The crock had best be cover
ed with a cover or cloth stuck on with
some of the thick waterglass in order
to prevent evaporation. If the solu
tion does evaporate, add some pure
water to keep the level at least two
inches above the eggs. Place the
crock in a cool place in the summer
and with the jars of preserved fruit
in winter. Even if the solution freez
es, the eggs will not be injured.
Eggs can be removed from the wa
terglass whenever they are desired.
Fer example a few eggs can be put
jn today and if an extra supply is
desired next month they could be re
moved and used and more fresh eggs
added when available. Sufficient eggs
can be taken out of the waterglass to
last several days,.
Robbers Get Away With
Atlanta, Ga., April 5-The biggest
genuine robbery Atlanta has had in
years is today puzzling the police and
detective departments. The Chambev
si ore was looted, the safe dynamited
and a clear getaway made sometime
between closing of business Satur
day and opening today. When the au
thorities do not know.
The theft aggregates, not includ
ing about $15,000 of Liberty Bonds
not yet accounted for, to about $30,
000. The cash and valuables, includ
ing a lot of jewelry reported to be
worth $20,000 was locked in a large
building vault on the third floor of
the Whitehall street building.
The police department believes the
robbers entered th..- building late
Saturday night or Sunday morning
by scaling a water pipe from an ad
joining building. Others, however,
are of the opinion that it was wholly
an "inside job;" that the robbers en
tered the store during business hours,
hid themselves, and were locked in
when the store was closed Saturday
night, did their work Saturday night,
and made their escape through a
back window in the store, which was
found open this morning, but which
usually is locked on the inside.
The door of the large vault was
cut with electric drills and blowpipes
and the small safes on the inside were
dynamited. From them were taken
jewelry valued at from $20,000 to
$25,000, cash amounting to $G,500,
and other valuables not. estimated.
Checks totalling more than $15,000
were strewn about the floor some dis
tance from the safe, and about $100
in pennies discarded by the robbers.
Ten Young People Lose Their
Lives at Harper's Ferry.
McCormick, S. C., Apl. 5.-While
out on a pleasure trip yesterday af
ternoon, traveling in two automobil
es and crossing Savannah River at j
Harper's Ferry, six miles west of
Lownesville from Abbeville county,
S. C., to Elbert county, Georgia, ten
out of eleven persons in the party
were drowned in the Savannah River.
The party of young people were on
their way from South Carolina to
Georgia and had started across Sa
vannah River on the flat at Harper's
Ferry when the post holding the ca
ble by which the flat was operated
gave way allowing the flat to drift
down the river until it struck a rock
Those reported drowned are:
Albert Sutherland, 18 years old.
Miss Alice Meschine, 15 years of
age and her brother, Charlie Mes
chine, 19 years old. \
Lester Walters and his wife, young
coupie who had been mairied only six
Little Inez Manning, aged 9 years,
and her sister, Miss Annie Manning,
16 years of age, and their brother,
Robert Manning, aged 22.
Miss Alice Bradshaw, age 18 and
her sister, Miss Lucy Bradshaw, aged
15. The only person in the party who
was saved being Thomas Bradshaw,
a brother of Miss Allie and Lucy
It is stated that thc high waters
of Savannah River and strong cur
rents against the flat loaded with
the party and two automobiles in
which they were traveling caused the
post to which the cable was fastened
to give way with such a fatal result.
All of the drowned are from prom
inent families residing in and around
the town of Lownesville, in Abbeville
county, and as soon as the matter
was reported the whole countryside
turned into a searching party trying
to recoved the bodies of those drown
On account of the swollen river
none of the bodies had been recov
ered up to 3 o'clock this afternoon.

Several outstanding results of the
Baptist 75 Million Campaign will be
noted in the larger development of the
rural churches. This development will
take the form of a more efficient
church and Sunday School life and in
better houses of worship around which j
the church and Sunday School activ
ities will center.
Through the enlistment department
of the Home Mission Board of the
Southern Baptist Convention, Atlanta,
Ga., weak,, struggling churches will be
aided in development to the point
where they can become self-supporting

much more of his time than has been 1
given these churches before, while
plans for the betterment of the rural j
Kiinday Schools through a series of J
Institutes for the training of teachers
In ad the Southern states this .summer
will be carried out by the Baptist Sun-1
day School Board.
Best Plans Are Recommended.
Plans have been perfected by the1
architectural department of Hie Bap-j
tist Sunday School Board at Nashville, i
Tenn., in co-operation with the Church
Building and Loan Department of the
Homo .Mission Board, whereby local
building committees can procure de
tailed plans of the best modern church
buildings for either large or small con
gregations. These plans have been so
drawn as to take care of every phase
of church activity, the Sunday School
and other departments being so pro
vided for as to enable them to do their !
most efficient work. And a modern !
building, containing all these essential,
provisions, can be provided by any j
community that is able to build an old- j
fashioned one-room church building,
as the cost for the modern structure
is no more than mat of the old-style
Big Loan Fund Provided.
To aid deserving congregations In
building adequate houses of worship,
the church building loan department
was established six years ago and al
ready more than 700 churches have
been helped in building needed houses. !
The Initial fund, established for this j
purpose, was fixed at $1.000,000 and
an additional $1.000.000 will be re-1
ceived from the 75 Million Campaign. !
Applications pending now aggregate
$1,000,000 and loans are being made at j
the rate of $50.000 per month. No ?
loans are being made in excess of one- !
third of the value of the property, and '.
the loan made must clear tho property
of all other indebtedness and thus
make it possible to dedicate the build
From the 75 Million Campaign the
Home Mission Board will receive, also, j
$2,500,000 to be used as gifts in the !
building of additional churches during 1
the next five years, but this sum will
be expended largely in aiding churches
in strategic points, among them being
educational centers where it is de

Why Good Houses Are Needed.
The accompanying illustration shows
a typical one-room church building and
also an exterior view and floor plans
of a modern, well-appointed church
building, calculated to take care of all
the needs of a church organization and
costing no more than the one-room
This proposed building has many
things in its favor as compared with
the one-room structure, aside from its
I attractive appearance. First, it is
more durable, being so constructed as
to resist wind and storm. Second, it
is easily heated in the winter, its vesti
bule cutting out the cold wind from
the entrance, while by reason of the
building having several departments it
is needful to heat only the department
being used on those occasions when
only a small gathering is had. Th^-n
the auditorium in the center is shielded
from the extreme weather by the de
partments surrounding it, though in
the summer these surrounding depart
ments can be opened up, giving abun
dant ventilation. Again, the new build
ing offers admirable quarters for the
several departments and classes of the
Sunday School, thus making the teach
ing of the Bible a much easier task.
Then the social life of the congrega
tion can be greatly promoted by the
better building.-in that it affords ample
quarters for church receptions, ban
quets and other affairs of this nature,
enabling the church to give the young
people adequate social activities under
This and many'other approved types
of country churches are being em
ployed now in every Southern state,
and a more efficient church work is
being done wherever such building has
been erected, it is declared. Sufficient
varieties of plans have been prepared
to serve the needs of any particular

The Married Man
They make a good many jokes at the expense of the
"poor married man." but really marriage is no joke to
the man who is married.
It is a stern, sobering event to the average man
when he takes unto himself a wife. It means two mouths
to feed instead of one. Two people to be properly clothed,
a home to furnish, additional duties and responsibilities.
It means more economy, more careful adjustment of
finances. An account at our bank is one of the greatest
safeguards the newly married man can make. Save a
little something every week, every month, every year
for a rainy day.
