VICIOUS HOG BITES
4 YEAR OLD GIRL
Cloak Saves Marshall Handle's
Daughter From Serious
The four-year-old daughter of Mar
shall Randies whose home is in South
Cape, was attacked by; a -vicious hog
Ihursday afternoon as she, with her
mother and two sisters, were walking
along South Sprigg street a short dis
tance below the Houck woods. '
'As Mrs. Randies and her children
were passing the home of a man nam
ed McKnight, the hog rushed out of
the yard and pounced upon the child.
The little girl was knocked ' down
and trod upon by the brute which is
said4oAveigh about 20Q pounds. Herj
ch ;hes Were torn' almost to shreds
aM the long tusks cut. deep gashes
in her back and over her body.
George Reyburn, a , teamster, who
was anving aiong tne roaa, neara tne
screams of the mother and her chil
dren and hurried to !the rescue. He
drove the infuriated animal away and
carried the injured child to her home.
The heavy coat that the little girl
wore at the time . of the ."attack, al
though cut and torn almost to pieces,
is believed to'have saved her life z.s
it afforded much , protection against
the long tusks and the sharp hoofs.
For the past few days the hog has
shown a vicious tendency, and a short
time ago attacked Mrs: Calvin Pind,
who lives in that neighborhood.

CARVES HIS NOSE
IN OPENING SACK
Miller Snider Seriously Hart
As He Liberates Dead
Miller Snider, a young man employ
ed as a chauffeur by S. B. Hunter of
this city, split his own nose Thursday
evening, and came near bleeding to
death from the injury before he could
secure medical assistance.
The young man had -been hunting
ducks near Green Brier with his
uncle, William Miller, and when they
had finished the sport for the day, they
placed their game in a sack and tied
it securely with a heavy string.
After passing through Advance on
their return to the Cape, Mr.' Snider
concluded to divide the game ' and
avoid the delay after arriving home.
As his uncle drove the car, Snider
drew the sack up between his knees
and inserted the keen blade of his
pocket knife beneath the string with
which the sack was tied.
As he drew the knife forward the
car gave a lurch, the string parted
and the sharp blade was brought with
force against the point of his nose,
bisecting the organ as far as the bony
structure would permit
The wound bled profusely and de
spite the fact that tht remainder of
the trip was made rapidly, the young
man was very weak from less of blood
when he reached the city, and the
physician who was summoned cn
counterd considerable difficulty in
checking the flow.
The doctor finally succeeded in clos
ing the wound and binding it to its
natural position by means of plasters.

NEW PLAN APPLIES
LARGELY TO DIXIE
Secretary McAdoo Indorses Plan
to Place Grain Ahead of
St Louis,-Nov. 28 The cotton sit
uation promjses to afford new proof
that "there is more than one way to
skin a rabbit." The Federal Govern
ment and all of the Southern State
Governments except South Carolina's
Bhied away from propositions to re
strict next year's cotton acreage by
law. It was, the cotton farmers who
begged for it were assured, unconstitu
tional; it was an outrageous invasion
of a man's right to plant what he
pleased; it would ereate a dangerous
Socialistic precedent. The farmers
were told they could arrange the re
striction of acreage by co-operation,
and the general public was reassured
against fears of another low-priced
bumper CTop next year with the ex
planation that the cotton growers
would have , to cut their 1915 cotton
acreage in sheer self-preservation.
It appears, however, that there is an
agency of government which can be,
and will bei employed to enforce, re
striction of acreage quite as effectual
ly, for a majority of growers, as a
straight-out limitation law. This agen
cy is the Federal Reserve. Board. The
purpose of this new agency controlling
American credits to use its power to
enforce less cotton "and more 'grain
acreage in the South next year was
first broadly intimated in a statement
given out by Secretary McAdoo. In
that statement he said:
While the creation of the cotton
loan, fund and its use ' under the plan
will have a far-reaching and beneficial
influence upon . the cotton and busi
ness situation, nevertheless the atten
tion of the South should not be drawn
away,from the. other pressing and im
portant problem with which it must
intelligently and effectively deal,
namely, a material reduction of cot
ton acreage in 1915 and the raising of
food products on a large part of the
acreage . heretofore devoted to cotton.:
Not only will diversification help the
prosperity of the South, but the mere
assurance of a large decrease in the
cotton, crop next year will immediately
enhance the value of the present crop.
The food products which the South
can . advantageously raise on a part of
the cotton acreage will find a ready
market at profitable prices, even if the
South itself cannot absorb them with
greater advantage than by buying
supplies from neighboring states.
If the war in Europe is protracted
the demand for foodstuffs will grow
in volume and intensity, and must be
supplied in large part by this country.
The recently expressed views of the
Secretary of Agriculture on this sub
ject should be read by eVery farmer in
the South. The Department of Agri
culture will gladly give information to
the farmers of the South about the
best means and methods of crop di
versification suitable to the conditions
of each locality.
The bankers also have an exception
al opportunity to aid in this commend
able work. They can, in large meas
ure, influence the character of crops
by imposing proper conditions upon
the advances they may make to the
farmers. Where the bankers are not
dealing direct with the farmers, the
merchant who supplies the necessary
credits can exert the necessary influ
ence. I earnestly hope that the farm
ers, the bankers and the merchants
in the South will co-operate with each
other for the purpose of materially re
ducing the cotton crop in lSio and se
curing a satisfactory crop diversifica
tion. Not only should the Southern
farmer plant . food crops, but he can
raise attle an4 poultry with great
benefit to himself .and the country a4
large.? He fan - not do this, however,
Hnlesrhe reduce cotton' acreage and
raises food supplies. ' . - '

Mrs. Emma Milford Testifies She
Sometimes Scorched Meat and
. Was Scolded.
Mrs. Emma Milford, plaintiff in the
case of Emma. Milford vs. Margaret
Milford, now being tried in the com
mon pleas court, was on the stand for
several hours yesterday in her efforts
to show that her mother-in-law, the
defendant, had come between her and
her husband, Richard Milford, causing
him to abandon her, and creating an
irreparable breach in the happy re
lations formerly existing between
them. The young woman is asking
$10,000 damages from her mother-in'
law who is wealthy.
She stated that from the time they
were married on March 20, 1912, un
til her husband, who had been serious
ly ill, was removed to a hospital in
St. Louis for treatment, they lived
pleasantly together except on occa
sions when the defendant visited them
at the farm on which thpy were living
She testified that when the mother
H'ai 6n';.the' premises she was not al
lowed' the companionship of her hus
band( f ho ws$ compelled to go with
hi$ lather; through the day, and re
main with her in the house she occu
pied until late at night
When asked if the defendant had
ever. scolded her she stated that she
had not, but. that in speaking of her
to Richard, she referred to her as a
thing" unfit for him to live with.
.She' said that one morning at the
breakfast table when Richard asked
his -mother why . she could not make
nice, light biscuits such as were made
by -the -plaintiff, the defendant became
very angry and said that "anyone
with good sense knew that no cook
book recommended the use of two dif
ferent kinds of powders for biscuits."
She also stated her husband rarely
complained of her cooking, although
at times when she would cook the
steak too much he would find fault.
but never became angry.
When her husband was removed to
St Louis she visited him at the hos
pital a few days latere and saw him
at his mother's home after he had re
covered, but he refused to return to
her, and stated that if she came to the
city it would be impossible for him to
ive with her on account of his moth
She testified that at one time when
she was in the city while Richard was
in the hospital, Mrs. Milford took her
to her home on Barker avenue, and
showed her over the premises, and
while there, stated that she would
never permit her boy to go back to the
farm, and that they had not decided
what. they would do with the plaintiff.
" Her' testimony was corroborated by
that of her brother, Emmett Robinson
almost throughout, and a Mr. Buck al
so testified as to the happy relations
existing between the young couple
when he was working on the farm af
ter they were married.
Miss Cora "Morris testified to con
versations with the defendant in
Which she informed the witness that
she UM not consider the plaintiff as a
fit wife for her son, and that she never
intended to allow him to come back to
At the conclusion of the plaintiff's
testimony, the joint will of William
G. Milford and Margaret Milford was
offered and accepted in evidence, af
ter which the plaintiff rested.
' The jury was then excused while the
argument on defendant's motion to
dismiss "for lack of evidence was in
f The motion was overruled by the
court, and the case will proceed at the
opening of the session this morning.
Maggie Tarr was granted a divorce
from Stephen D. Tarr and given the
custody of he children. She was also
awarded $500 alimony and $50 attor
ney fees." - ' .
