Tie Them Up Like Kilkenny Cats.
Atlanta, June 30.?It's a rare joke
the grand jury has played on Tom
Felder and Chief Lanford of the detective
department, Neither Folder
nor Lanford relishes the humor, but
the public does.
Instead of indicting Lanford on
Felder's charges or indicting Felder
on Lanford's charges the grand jury

libel, leaving it up to them to prove
which told the truth about the other.
To recall the simile of the Kilkenny
cats, the grand jury has tied their
tails together and hung them over
the municipal clothes line to let them
fight it out with tooth and claw. .
^ The beauty of it is that neitner of
v them can complain. Felder published
^ statements against Lanford accusing
Lanord of "hideous crimes." Lanford
I publicly accused Felder of being "a
contemptible liar, scoundrel and
would be briber." Now, in the light
of the double of libel is to prove his
charges against Lanford. Similarly

One Man Kept Cool All
Indianapolis, Ind., June 30.?At least
one man slept cooly throughout the
hot night in Indianapolis, according to
nn "owl" street car conductor. Short
ly before las: midnight, the conductor
said, a passenger boarded his car and
? asked how many trips he would make
during the night. The conductor figured
it out and the passenger counted
out several coins.
"Now," said the passenger, handing
the money to the conductor, "I'm an
all-night fare. Don't wake me until
you start to the barns."
The passenger then settled back in
a seat and with the bre-ze blowing
through his hair, proceeded to sleep

Celebrate Fourth on Use of Palms,
Charleston, June 30.?Plans for a
big day on the Fourth of July are being
arranged at the Isle of Palms,
' (Charleston's famous summer resort.
Fifteen years ago the first Fourth of
July was c-elebrated at this beech,
wTiich had been converted from a
strip of sand hills into a substantial
frnh> nlaee. with everv natural ad
vantage to promise it popularity and
each year since that tmTe has seen
it improved, the climax being recently
reached, when James Sottile of
Charleston, acquired control of the
Isle of Palms resort and the ferry line
and electric railroad connecting it
with Charleston. Formerly known as
Long Island, and, tradition has it, the
landinsr nlace of CaDt. Kidd, the Isle
of Palms took its name because of
the immense number of palm trees
growing over its nine miles of territory.
In the past two years $150,000
has been spent improving the beach
properties until today the resort is
one of the best in the South.
On the Fourth of July with a low
tide in the morning, leaving a perfect
beach 500 feet wide and many
miles long in prime shape for such
sport, motorcycle races are announc*
ed riders of the .South being invited
to enter me various evem,s, a, au?w
trophy championship cup and many
special prizes being offered. Only
twin cylinder machines will run. M.
S. Sullivan of Charleston, is manager
of the races.
The afternoon hours on the Fourth
will be devoted to the surf which at*

the Isle of Palms surf, a statement

I Systematic precautions for the safety
of the bathers and an ideal, gently de?

the Isle of Palms.
I Concert music, dancing all day until

the special features for Independence
