for the Ascot gold cup, one of the most
coveted prizes of the English turf, was
marred today by an incident similar
to tha: which brought the King's horse
down in the Derby, when Emily Wilding
Divison sought and found death
in the cause of the militant suffragettes.
In this case it was a man.

was not connected with the suffragettes,
but was of unsound mind and
of a type peculiarly liable to be carried
away by the imitative impulse.
He suffered the same penalty for his
temerity as did Miss Davison?a fracture
at the base of the skull.
At a late hour tonight Hewitt was
lying unconscious in a hospital after
' undergoing an operation in the forlorn
hope that his life might be saved.
Royalty at the Race.

Manuel, of Portugal; the Crown

General of Canada, and Princess Patricia

Suddenly a man jumped from the

Whally did his best to divert the
horses's course, bur failed. Tracery,

his shoulder, sent him flying several
yards. Whally shot clear out of the
saddle but rolled to safety under the

however, shown evidences of religious

"Oh, the weariness of these races!
If I fail in iny intention, to stop the
gold cup, I hope I shall not hurt any
of these, jockeys. These races bring
out all that is worst in humanity."
In another entry he refers to his intention
"to give my body as a protest
against society convention."
The Ascot cup was won by the fiveyear-old
Prince Palatine, owned by T.
Pitkington. The race was at two and

youth of about 20!
years old. Officials of the militant suffrage:t
organization say they have no

GE>. TEAGUE WJRITES
OF GETTYSBURG FUND
fommander of Confederate Yeterons
Sends Circular Letters Explaining*
Aiken, June 20.?Gen. B. H Teague,
commander S. C. division, U. C. V.,
and disburser of the $1,000 fund ap- j
propriated by the legislature to send
veterans to Gettysburg, has issued i
a circular letter in explanation of j
hie disbursement of the fund. Gen.!
Te ague's letter is as follows:
"Comrade: The act of the legisla
ture appropriating the $1,000 reads: j
'Expenses to Gettysburg, reunion of j
Confederate soldiers who praticipated :
in battle fought at hiat placj. Money
to be expended under the direction of
B. H. Teague, major general commanding
S. C. division, United Confederate
veterans.' I voluntarily
brought the subject up before the convention
of veterans at the Aiken reunion,
that I might be guided by the
opinions of comrades as to the dis- j
bursement of this fund. It was sug- j
gested by a comrade that $15 be given
to each applicant, then by another $10
was suggested, then another man,
thought that it should be proprated
by the amount required for each applicant's
railroad fare. Finally, as
lio definite amount was agreed upon,

by resolution, the whole matter was
left in the hands of the commander.
This resolution is recorded in the minutes
of the convention 'to do as he
Hmne-ht. hast with it' now in posses
sion of tl(e adjutant general.
"For two weeks after the reunion
the applicants came in slowly. In
this time I issued a circular letter to
my . comrades, saying they must send
in their names by June 15. This was
done simply to hurry them up; nothing
was said, or intended, that any
mo wnnlri hA debarred after that
"After much thought, I concluded
that it would be best to adopt the
last suggestion offered at the reunion,
especially since it looked"as if there
would not be many applicants. I
did not know any more than the legislature,
!ho~w many there would be
and there was no means for finding
it out, so I began to send out checks,
in rotation, the amount of each applicant's
railroad fare, as each application
came in and continued this,
until the $1,000 was paid out.
"The number checked was 46. Since
then, the number of applicants has
run up to 200 or more in all. Now,
' "* - XT 1 X J

and divided the money equally
among the over 200 w<ho applied,
there would not have been $5 apiece?
not enough to take one hardly 1QO i
miles and back. Then suppose on the
other hand, that having been done,
an applicant had said 'that was not
the intent of the act?that it was intended
eacfo one's way should have !
been paid in full.' You see I could
not satisfy all. The trouble has not
been., with your commander?ft has
with the legislature?it did not
instruct me definitely and did not appropriate
enough money to go around.
I iave done my best for you, comrades,
giving my time, lalror and expenses

pointed ones. I wish I had it within
my gift to pay the way to Gettysburg
of every comrade in the State?you
would all be there. I have called on
the people of the State to help you
and have listed your names and if
any money comes into my hands, I
will send check to you as I have done

The postoffice department in Washington
has issued a series of tags,
each consisting of three coupons. The
first coupon is retained by the office
from which the package is being sent,
the second is given to the sender as
his receipt and the third is to be attached
to the package. On this tag
'is placfed such information as the
name and address of the sender, together
with that of the party to whom
the package is sent, the value of the
package ahd the amount to be collected.
These parcels, however, can be addressed
only to offices which issue
money orders. If a parcel is to be
sent to a person living in the country,
a fee of 10 cents extra is charged.
This insures the package to ' the
amount of $50 and the collection of
the amount due. When the package
is called for, the receiver fills out a
blank similar to that of a money order,
and turns over to the official the
amount due on the package. A money
I order fee is deducted, and the remain-!
der is forwarded to the firm which
sent out the package.
