The only consolation the Demo

the assassination of Carmack. The

1884 and 1893 led to changes of ad

has had no such result. The people
have not held the admlnstration re
sponsible for it. This is a most re

If you think you are wise and well
informed, just see if you can answer
these questions : You have see hun
dreds of white horses, why did you
never see a white colt? Why does
a horse eat grass backwards and a
cow forward? Why does a hop vine
twine to the left and a bean vine to
the right? Why does a horse when
staked out by a rope unwinds the
rope while a cow winds It up into
hard kinks? Why does a horse get
up on his front feet first and a cow
on her hind feet? And why does a
a dog turn around three times before
Last Wednesday night Operator
Sam L. Peeples of the N. C. & St.
L. at Martin, was examining what
he thought to be an unloaded pistol.
The N. C. & St. L. call boy, Will
T. Griffin, was asleep in the office
when the operator pointed the pistol
at him, intending to snap it, but to
his great surprise the pistol fired,
shooting Griffin in the neck, and in
flicting what was thought to be a fa
tal wound. The accident occurred
about 11:30, and it was thought
then that there was no possible
chance for his recovery, but now bis
friends have some faint hope that
the wound will not prove fatal.
The young men were each about
18 years of age and had always
been close friends. Young .Peoples,
Is now at his home In Gardner,
Tenn., almost crazed with grief.
Young Griffin is at the Martin Hotel,
where he is receiving every at
tention possible. The accident was
very deplorable, and" is much re
gretted by friends of both parties.
Young Griffin is a son of A. S.

Sixty Thousand Ton Liners,
The While Star Line yesterday
officially announced that the names
of the second of its two great liners,
which are to be built at Harland &
Wolff's yard at Belfast, wilf be the
Titanic. Incidently, it is announced
that the tonnage of each vessel will
be about 60,000, which is' nearly
twice that of the Mauretania, the
largest vessel now afloat.
The keel blocks for the first of
these amazing ships, the Olympic,
were laid down at Belfast last week,
and work is tiow progressing on her.
The keel blocks for the Titanic will
be lad down early in January next.
Although it has been known that
the White Star Line contemplated
building two ships that would eclipse
anything afloat, the exact tonnage
has not been, known before, and the
Olympic and Titanic will represent
the greatest stride ever made in nav
al architecture. They will be near
ly 1,000 feet long, and about eighty
feet broad, and while they will not
be built for speed, they will, it is ex
pected, be able to average twenty-
one knots. They will be equipped
with a combination of turbine and
The cost of .the two vessels will be
Great preparations have been go
ing on at Belfast for more than a
year for the construction of these
giant vessels. Two new docks, each
more than a thousand feet long and
capable of bearing a weight of 75,
000 tons, have been built and the
greatest gantry in the world has
been installed. A large number of
men who have been idle while the
yard was being prepared for these
boats will now be reemployed, and
it is expected that the work on them
will do much to relieve the distress
threatened in Belfast during the con
It is interesting to compare these
two great ships with some of the
other famous ships of their day. -
The first Cunard steamship to
cross the Atlantic was the Britannia,
which made the crossing in 1840.
Her tonnage was 1,154, and she was
207 ft. long. The Scotis, which was
referred to as an "ocean leviathan"
In 1862, had a tonnage of 3,871.
Still more Interesting is the com
parison with the fust vessel of any
kind that ever crossed the Atlantic
Columbus' Santa Maria, which
was 60 feet long and had a tonnage
of 223. It may also be mentioned
that the tonnage of either the Titan
ic or Olympic will be more than the
total tonnage of the Spanish Arm
ada, which was 59,120s wliile the
tonnage of the English fleet which
opposed it was less than half that
When a splinter has been driven
deep into the hand, it can be extract
ed without pain by steam. Nearly
fill a wide mouthed bottle with hot
water, place the injured part over
the mouth of the bottle, and press
tightly. The suction will draw the
llesh down, and in a minute or two
the steam, will extricate the splinter
and the inflamation will disappear.
