Spartanburg, Sept. 30. ? William
Montague Xieholls. second lieutenant
in the British royal artillery, son of
Judge and Mrs. George \V. Xieholls of
this city, and brother of S. J. Xieholls,
member-elect of congress from this M
district, was killed at the front in
France in the fighting that took place
there between the English and German
forces last Sunday and ."onday,,
according to official announcement received
here this morning from the
British war office by members of his
family. The following dispatch was
received this morning by Judge Xic-holls:
"London, England. Sept. '20.?Deeply i
regret to inform you that Second Lieut, j
W. M. Xicholls, R. F. A., was killed in |
action between 26-27th September.:
Lord Kitchener expresses sympathy."
Lieut. Xicholls, who left for Eng-!
land soon after the European war was
declared, having resigned from the
United States Xaval academy at Annapolis
a year previous to become a
member of his father's law firm here,
spent several months in London before
his service in the English army was
accepted, but finally, after taking the
oath of allegiance to England, secured
a commission as second lieutenant
in the royal artillery and was sent,
to the front about a year aso.
On March 21 he was wounded, being |
shot through the thigh. This caused
him to spend several months in a hos- j
pital, but, recovering from that wound,
he was again sent to the front, possibly
three months ago.
News of his death was not a surprise
to members of his family here,
since the dispatches of the last few
days announcing the advance of the
force; of the allies and France and
Belgium caused them to realize that I
Lieut. Xicholls was in the tnick of the j,
Efforts will be made to have Lieut.
Xicholls' body recovered and returned '
to this city for burial. Such a request
has been sent to the. British war office
by Judge Xicholls. The state department
at Washington has been
asked to aid.
Montague Xicholls will be remembered
in football circles as quarter- ,
back on Navy team of 1911.

WORDS AND MUSIC
BY JUDGE BENET
Stirring Ballad of Present War Com
posed by Former Carolinian
Has Martial Spirit.
"That Little Contemptible Army" is
the title of quite a stirring ballad of
the present war which was composed
by Judge < William Christie Benet,
former South Carolinian and Columbian.
Judge Benet wrote the words
several months ago and the State
printed them; subsequently lie composed
the melody which was arranged
by Goodwin Foster and published by a
London music house, West & Co.., 24
Rathbone flace, uxrora street, i-?onaon.
The verses have a good plain rhyme
and the music, written in six-eight
time, has a swing and a martial spirit
that should make it popular as a
marching tune for the allies:
The verses run thus:
The Kaiser ordered stout von Kluck:
"You must beat the British by hook
Their cock-sure airs I can not brook,
That little contemptible army!
Although they're led by General
Their martial zeal you will surely
In my royal nostrils they're a stench,
That little contemptible army!"
Von Kluck is. every inch a man,
"I'll do," says he, "the best I can."
With that a three weeks' fight began
With that little contemptible army.
To the Kaiser then he made report,
"Unpleasant, sire, I'll make it short;
For truth to tell we had poor sport
With that litMp contemntible armv.
'We charged their line full three to

in his series entitled "Youth1

the progress that is being made on
American farms bv tens of thousands !
of boys and girls who are organized

department of agriculture. The need ;
for regeneration on American farms is i
demonstrated by the following letter j

American farmer than, anything that j

animals. In many farming communities
in the northern part of Maine, New

many living alone after having worn

X-RAY PRETEXTS DEATH
Dr. Gibson Tells Research 3Ien Tliat
In 757 Cases That He Treated

With 757 successful cases to prove
his claim' that the X-ray will prevent

"I wish to state now with emphasis,"
he said after describing his expreience
with the method, "that the X-ray will
finally bring about the emancipation of
the race, from this dreadful scourge."

sufferer from pulmonary turberculosis,

X-ray is 'virtually a cure for tuberculosis
when he made his address as president
of the research society at is opening

that in ten years tuberculosis will be
considered a relatively harmless disease,

"I have dealt only with advanced
i cases," he said, "because I feel that
success with them is what we most
lack now. The early stages of the disease
will take care of themselves.
"It might seem that I have permitted
my enthusiasm to run away with me
in studying this cure, but I think that
a feeling of gratification at least is justified
when I say that out of 757 cases
thus treated there has been only 16
deaths. Five hundred and sixty-six are
alive today. The others died natural
deaths of other ailments after living
years after the treatment.
"The Roentgen ray will always enable
the physician to detect the disease
in its incipiency, and in advanced cases
there is absolutely nothing that will i

better developed it will be a disgrace
for a physician to permit a case of
tuberculosis of any kind to progress to
an advanced stage, because the X-rays
even now find the incipient tendencies
even before the symptoms form."
'The treatment is speedy. Advanced
cases have been cured in from three to
six months of the daily alternating application
of the Roentgen ray and the
static electricity treatments.
When Dr. Gibson's paper was finished
half a dozen sDecialists voiced an.
proval of his method and their belief
in its value. Among them were Dr.
Arthur >W. Yale of Philadelphia, Dr.
Daniel E. Si Coleman, director of a
large tuberculosis institution- in New
York city, and Dr. James Krauss of
Boston, secretary of the CliDical association.

White Woman in Chains?
Atlanta, Oct. 2.?Can you imagine a
young white woman in chains, working
on the public roads in Georgia, with *
a guard armed with a rifle to keep her
on the job? That is what you would
see if the sentence of the local criminal
court in the case of Mrs. Janie
Smith of East Point were carried out.
The young woman was charged with
being drunk and disorderly on the public
highway, and as there were aggravated
features of the offense, the judge
felt it his duty to impose a fine of 12
months on the chain gang. There is
the usual alternative of $100 fine, but
this the young woman can not pay.
fVerdict has been suspended' pending
appeal to the higher court and even
though the appeal is not sustained it
is probable that the sentence will be
modified in some way.

A Washington dispatch says Senator
James of Kentucky called at the white
house last Wednesday to urge President
Wilson to make a speech in Ken- ?

ex-Representative Augustus O. Stanley

James he would take the request
under consideration and give an answer
in ten days. (The president said
that he would write a letter indorsing
Mr. Stanley if he found it impossible
to go to Kentucky to make a speech.
