Home ore A. Sulrnes Burn* Wednea-
day morning — Wile and Two
Children Burned-One Child
About 7 o'clock Wednesday morning
the home of Charles A. Sulenes with
all its contents wa-s destroyed by fire.
The house was located in the Merriam
Mr. Sulenes is saw filer at the Lamb-
Davis Lumber Co.'s planning mill. He
got up at the asual hour and after eat
ing his breakfast he put a boiler of wa
ter on the stove and filled the stove
with wood, his wife intending to do
some washing. After he left Mrs. Sul
enes lay down on a bed in an adjoining
room to the kitchen where a baby four
months old lay, and dropped off to
sleep. The supposition is that the fire
started from a stove pipe which runs
thru the roof. The tire was discovered
by nabors who broke the door down
ami aroused Mrs. Sulenes, who grasped
the baby in her arms ami rushed thru
the burning room. Mrs. Sulenes was
very severely burned about tbe hands,
feet and face. The baby was also
slightly burned. Both will recover.
The little eighreen months old girl, it
appears tried to get o.ut and fell in the
kitchen, overcome with the heat and
smoke. A rescuer whose name we have
not learned rushed into the burning
building and grasped the little girl by
the foot and dragged her out. She la
so badly burned, however, that recov
ery is very improbable.
Mr. Sulenes is a sober and indus
trious citizen who has the sympathy of
the entire community in his affliction.
We have just learned that the soul
of little Ethel Sulenes took its flight
at 6:30 on the day that she was so
frightfully burned. The funeral will
take place this afternoon.

"What Is It that makes people wUd
to see so repulsive and distressing a
spectacle as a banging" asks the Bal
timore Sun. Bullfights, prize fights,
dog fights and even some stage per

Americans are not for any of these
spectacles. But we do not bear of
them so much.

K*t Sensibly and Live Well.
Mrs. Grundy's dictum that It is rude
to "suttt" at table Is quoted In a long
article on eating by Dr. Wood Hutchln
•oii In McClure's, the tenor of which
U that we should eat what Is set before
us. The writer saya that the person
who Is continually anxious whether
certain food is going to agree with him
to a dyspeptic and Is going to remain
so. To quote:
It Is not even well for us to consider
100 nicely the amounts of water or food
taken or whether It is digestible ur not.
The really healthy stomach ought to be
and Is capable of disposing of not only
the digestible and the difficult of diges
tion, but the Indigestible. Any other kind
Of a stomach Is not worth having, and
that Is the standard to which we physl.
■lane are now training our dyspeptic pa
tlenU. The stomach which will melt
down and ÜBe up anything in reason that
la given to 11 Is the only kind fitted to
survive. Stomachs can be "pampered"
Just as easily by relieving them from the
necessity of taking difficult foods as by
overloading them. Personally I have met
with almost as many dyspepsias due to
the former as to the latter. The stomach,
like any other Instrument, should be kipt
up to concert pitch. It should not be al
lowed to shirk Its responsibilities or to be
humored too much. This, of course. Is by
no means to discourage intelligent dis
crimination In the choice of food.
The doctor sets out to combat certain
popular delusions among Americans in
the matter of food, but appears to
hedge on every radical proposition he
puts forth, For instance, he tacks on
to the foregoing the caution that some
perfectly wholesome foods are literal
poisons to some stomachs and had bet
ter be avoided. That is a truism most
people have learned by experience, and
that Is- why there remains sniffing at
the table for the Gruudys to carp
orer. The human Instinct and sense
of smell are safeguards against "spoil
ing" or putrefaction in food, and Dr.
Hutchlnßou says we have only to "ful
low our noses" If we would escape
ptomaine poisoning. Here is the whole
thing In a nutshell—that the "burnt
child dreads the tire" aud the wise
stomach balks at its particular poison.
But In the main Dr. Hutchinson's
advice Is timely. People have run
after new foods who were dolim \ cry
well on the old. This line of thought
leads him to land hard on the brown
bread theory and \>> insist that t!,t>
whitest of wheat bread is the projtef
food for man. This is not home out
by European ex|>erlence. however, for
the peasants, whose health and Btrea ;!<
we envy, seldom taste of wheat Urea i
until they come here and if they st)ek
to It as a steady diet h. this country
soon show Its bad effects. Ami it may
be observed that If snitfiug at talilr
Is not a European trait it is 1 .me
the sniffing aud the exclusion have i, ,
done before the dishes come to '.ue ta
ble. Axioms as to what to Mt nod
what to let ulone are drilled Into H»

everybody can eat of everything on
the table It means that uothin-' Uai

hour of the day and the needs of the
stomachs to lie fed.

lusaue Deaiiv For Speed.
Tbe season for ;i■isimioiiiie "sport"
opened with a mosi distressing acci
dent In a suburb of New York, ivmiK
lug In the death of two venerable wo
men on their way to church. A youth
of twenty handled Uie machine, and
Uie owner ordered hint to hurry from
the spot without offering help, evidence
that the responsible parries were untlt
to be at large with tbe power to do
mischief. The father ol the owner of
the auto In this ease promptly declared
that the fatal accident was "due to an
lusaue desire (or speed."
Desire for speed and nothing else
| causes about all the accident! in which
iUtos are involved, whether tbe vic
tims are inside of or under the ma
chine. This particular accident occur
| red on a down grade curve under a
bridge, where there were double trol
ley tracks, and for their own safety
as well as for pedestrians on the course
the autoists should have been extreme
ly cautious instead of extremely reck
less. A dealli curve in tbe road in uot
a place for sport. Autoists Incapable
of restraining their desire for a sport-
Ing pace under circumstances like
those should be dealt with sharply by
the law. They laugh &X 7^?s as part
of the price of "sport." » tprlsomnent
should be added to the .-^s, and loss
of license for the driver Should be the
penalty for Ignoring the speed limit or
other regulations for safety, and the
charge of manslaughter should face the
aatolst who puts human life In peril
on the highway by the brainless direc
tion of the swiftly moving machine.
Cuba's Last "Tyrant."
A Madrid dispatch announcing the
death of General Blanco, Spain's last
governor general In Cuba, recalled a
name very familiar to Americans
eight years ago. Early in 1808 the
Spanish government awoke to the fact
that the atrocities of the butcher Wey
ler were certain to bring the United
States to the aid of the Cuban revolu
tionists, and Blanco came over to re
verse Weyler's policy. At that time
Blanco was sixty-five years of age and
not at all aggressive. He had made a
record In Cuba at the close of the first
Cuban insurrection and also In the
Philippines during the early days of
I the Insurrection which drew our fleet
to Manila bay.
But for the blowing up of the United
States battleship Maine In Havana
harbor probably there would have been
do American war, and Blanco
would have left behind him In Cuba
the record of a great pacificator. At
least such was the programme which
brought him to Cuba. He had even
been called upon to defend himself In
Madrid against the charge of too great
leniency toward the Filipinos In 1894
--9fl. although he showed that over a
thousnud reliels had been banished
from th.- inlands during his term and
many leaders sent to the gallows. Al
though In command of a good sized
army at Havana when General Shaffer
attacked Santiago, Blanco made no at
tempt to relieve that place, and as soon
as the garrison surrendered and CVr-
Tera's fieet was destroyed he urged his
government to evacuate Cuba.

King's Mountain and Hlstury.
! There Is a proposition before the
country to appropriate $80,000 to erect
a monument at King's mountain coui
imemoratlve of the most brilliant pa
.trlot victory of the war of the Revolu
|Uon. The surrender of Coruwallis at
i Yorktowu did not urnm contribute to
' peace than the victory of King's uiouu
i tain contributed to that surrender. Yet
i the brilliant event stands In history
,U little more than a tradition and is
j regarded by the average American as
I only a local myth.
We have had some ambling history
KTlting in this country about thai war
'and could well afford to expend this
1130,000 as an Inducement to the rising
generation to inform themselves and

King's mountain, where the noble Fer
Iguson fell and where his troops were

Williams, Lacey, Winston and others.
Their troops were hardy settlers, used
to privation, bruve, intrepid, self re
llant, every one v hunter and a marks
man. It la doubtful if ouelentli of On
adult American population know
where Kind's mountain is, and not one
hundredth of them know that there
was decided that memorable October
day, 1780, the destinies of their coun

by the civil war, and the last notable
celebration on that field took place in
1855, the seventy-nfth anniversary.
The telephone having become a fix
ture users of this great time saver and
business and social convenience cannot
fairly object to the hint that there is
room for improvement In the code of
procedure that "goes. with every ma
chine." The company rules simply tell
the speaker and the auditor what to do
to connect. Tilings unsaid In the rules
are left to the good sense of the users,
but a certain knot of reformers think
that these, too, should be formulated
Into a code.
For Instance, it Is suggested that the
idea that every call is from a friend
wanting to pass a joke, or maybe a file
alai in or some one demanding a check
for that last bill, is to be dropped aud
tlie call taken as a mere matter ol
fact. Tlie receiver should be handled
with delllteration, the tone unruffled
and the overworked "Hello!" replaced
by the monosyllable "Well?" An ex
change of names iv ever}' iustauce is
Insisted upon by the new codists, tot
even wneD a call Is awaited the first
corner :nay not lie tlie one expected.
Of course secrets have no place on
the phone, but all conversation has ils
preliminaries when the parties are face
to face, aud between parties unseen
talU should not begin nor end abrupt
ly. Since time is money on the phone
as elsewhere, and often to a greater de
cree, a code observed at both ends of
the wire will really be another time
La Granja, the spot chosen as a re
treat fur the young Spanish king and
his British bride. is a sheltered recess
In th' mountains In the center of a pine
forest 4,000 feet above the sea. It
lias been called the Versailles of Spain,
but the terraces of La Granja, unlike
those of its French prototype, are the
result of nature Instead of artifice. Su
perstitious folk would consider l.a
Granja hoodooed, for It has witnessed
several famous abdications of Spanish
rulers, and the present king's mother
has such a hatred of the place and its
history that she has visited It but once
In her life.
