Two Meetings for Benefit of Beaufort

Beaufort, July 9.?Featureless, except
that it was the smallest crowd

the present campaign; that the audience

l ^ * The meeting was held at 8 o'clock
tonight, at the court house, with possibly
four hundred persons present, a j
very large percentage of whom were ]
ladies. County Chairman R. R. Legare
presided, the gathering being possibly
the most orderly and attentive

Of course, the excessive heat, in a
measure, kept down any overflow of
'enthusiasm, but there was little
chance of anything "breaking loose" in

A 01KL IS MURDERED
A * IN BRUTAL MANNER
Child oi 12 Years is Slashed to Pieces.
No Clue to Murderer.
P New York, July 7.?Julia Conners,
a 12-year-old girl, was murdered in a
fiendish manner early today, her body,
bearing 36 wounds, evidently made by
a stilleto, but still with a breath of
l ^ *4ife, was found in a vacant lot in the
Bronx. The child died without having

\ Her parents and school chums kept
I up an all-night search without success.
/ ihe child's little body was literally

w for fact that it was wrapped in a worn
skirt. The liair had been cut off. One
of the wounds was a stab in the i
heart. Her throat was also partly cut j
and a stab in the back had pierced the j
Late tonight the police said they
had definitely established the fact that j
the attack on the girl was made in a ;
vacant apartment on the second floor '
of a house beside the lot in which the
girl was found.
Evidence in the bath room of the j
apartment leads the police to the belief
that here Julia was murdered.
The bath tub was blood smeared and
on the floor vfere found quantities of;
the girl's clustering brown hair. But j
with all these marks of the tragedy, j
the police admitted that they had J
found nothing which would indicate j
who the perpetrator of the crime
might be. The murderer had placed
his little victim's body in a sitting
I position in a box two feet long and one !
j and one-half leet in clothing and cov- ;

ibore the child down to the lower hall-:

To preserve fruit and vegetables for
exhibtion in order that they may appear
in their natural condition is a
process little understood by the ma-!
jority of people. However, if one has
the time and inclination to take the
proper precautions, very little difficul-!
ty will be experienced in preparing j
the fruit. Success lies in the proper j
selection of specimens for preservation.
As much, iff not more, depends
upon the selection and proper handling
of the ,fruit and vegetables than j
upon the formula used. Never allow
specimens to become fully mature,
and, to meet with the best success,
they should be placed in the preserving
fluid fully two days before thor
oughly ripened. The fruits seiectea i
should he in the best possible condi-1
tion and without blemish of any kind.
After washing in clear, cold water
to remove all dust, dirt, spores, or
other foreign matter, place carefully
in the receiving jar. Avoid handling
the specimens any more than is really
necessary. After filling the jar as full
as possible without bruising the fruit,
the liquid should be poured in. Some
writorc rwnmmen^ straining: thp li
quid through several layers of cheese
cloth. This is a good plan. Make the
lid air tight and place in a dark room
at a temperature of 30 to 40 degrees F.
the jars should be examined every few
days and if found fermenting the liquid
should be removed^ the fruit
rinsed, and new liquid used, varying*
the proportion of chemicals. rfltae
following formulas bave been
used quite successfully in preparing
fruit for exhibition.
1. To vegetables such as squashes,
cucumbers, onions, dissolve one pint
of pure clean table salt in every gallon
of water used. Allow this solution
to stand twelve hours then strain
through several layers of cheese cloth
and pour over vegetables.
2. For strawberries, blackberries,
raspberries, and currants use clear
water-white kerosene, but he sure that
no water remains on the berries.
3. For pears, peaches and plums use
one quart of glucose and one-half
ounce of formaldehyde to every gallon
4. For apples use one and a half
ounces of formaldehyde to every gallon
5. For fruit in general, use one Dint
of glycerine, five ounces powdered
borax to every gallon of water, then
after fifteen days add two ounces
formaldehyde to each gallon for dark
fruits, and two ounces of sulphurous I
acid to all light colored fruits.

Thoughts of a Bachelor (*irl.
Women may have originally been !
man's rib; but from the way in which
he is arraigning and assailing her in
the newspapers nowadays she appears
to have been his bone of contention.
No woman wants her husband to be
a woman-hater, but she doesn't object j
to his disliking them each, individually.
A man's heart is not an organ, but
a pianola, which may be easily played
upon by any woman who knows the
combination and presses the right button.
Let your husband put his feet all
over the furniture an^ his ashes all
over the floor and he will be blissfully
happy and fancy himself "master of
the house," even though he isn't allowed
to say a word about another
thing in it.
If the average man would display j
as much care and fastidiousness in
choosing a wife as he does in choosing
a golf club or a pipe he would not j
so often wake up to find himself mar- '
ried to a total stranger.

pleasant places; but all the good fish

lines are cast in the unpleasant down
If there is 110 marrying in heaven,
at least a woman will be spared the
agony of having to fix over her last
year's halo to make it look exactly
like this year's Pans creation.
The man who is envied by all his
fellows is the one who is strong
enough to eat anything he likes without
getting indigestion, clever enough
to do anything he likes without getting
caught and ingenious enough to
