Few people have any conception of
(the work done for charity's sake In this
section by the various organizations
formed for that and kindred purposes,
and for most part this charity is judi?
ciously (bestowed. Private giving Is at?
tended with the danger of donating
?unwisely. Some limes money is be?
stowed when it had hotter have been
Tiept in the donor's pocket. There are
eo many fake.} and frauds preying
upon the public that It Is often hard
to- detect the difference between the
poor and needy and the worthless
human sbarks who make begging a
business, and would not do a lick of
tsvork .to save themselves from starving.
It is a positive relief to turn to; the
<work of organized charity where ap?
peals are Investigated before alms are
?bestowed, as In the case of the \V. C.

A Cireat Ship Lies Hurled in the Sand
on the South Carolina (.'oast.

N>>! many days ago a party of ladles

an ugly piece of wreckage, Ju->: at the
low water mark on Ihe sand. Going to
It. she struck It "With ln-r paras .1. and
remarked 'that it seem, ,1 to be pan <.f
a ship. Others In 'the party went M
look at it, and one, getting it shovel
from the workmen then on the Isl md.
began to dig ft llflle way down Into the
sand. The result was most surprising!
It took Inn a few minutes to see that
the exposed timber was the keel of a
large vessel and 'thai the hull appeared
?to -he practically Intact. It was lying
bottom up, anil the sand had burled
It completely, with the exception of the
kcCI, which was only visible at dead low
Curiosity prompted the owners of the
Island t," Investigate tin- wreck a little!
further, ami the developments wore still',
inure Interesting. The sand was cleared
away for sonn- distance along ihe hull
of the ship, and then with axes and!
saws a hole was cut into it. This was
no easy task for the ship was found to!
be planked Inside and .mt and the hot-j
?:om was hard ami lough; besides this
the ribs : >r "knees" were so close to-j
gather they almost constituted h s >!id
wall In themselves. The interior was!
reached, however; ami it was seen thai j
the cargo consisted of yellow pine 1um- |
ber. It had been p rf i tly preserved,!
and was In better condition than when
placed on board the ill-fated ship, fort

C uld "I" It. With Lite workmen employ- '
?1 oil the Island smn." half dor.cn or sol
of the pieces were taken out of the ship, i
and then the finding of Umber 7x17

apparent that more than ??man power}'

Mr. A. S. t imers-n has contracted with I
?the owners of the Island to ;.?,??. this
cargo otrt, and will have derricks and!

the present week.
Of course there |s no telling what else
may be found In the .ship that was hur?

lumber may bo only a part of ;ho car?

upper pan <-f the ship, which is now
at the bottom ? f the sand; but again
there may bo only the hones of some
poor seaman, or the ordinary chests
