Pulled bread is likely to become one
of our chief table delights. It is much
nicer than mere bread. Pulled bread Is
made in the following simple manner
and is possible lin any household or
flat, no1 matter how limited its room or
utensils: Take an ordinary loaf of
bread, cut off all of the crust, then
shred or "pull" the bread lightly apart
with a silver fork with dull tines.
Toast It in the lower oven on all sides
or else rebake it in the regular oven
In a brisk heat. The bread must be
cooked this second time just when
needed for eating, and then, either hot
or c(xled, it Is delicious.

Mr. August Kohn, the Columbia
correspondent of the News and
Courier, has the following interest
ing chat about State politics and
There is already a great deal of
talk in various states about can,
didatea for state offices, and for
months the presidential posQbilt.
ties have been seriously constj ed.
In South Carolina, under rUe Pri.
mary systel, tho election iiriu
ally hold in August every seoond
year. The result of the system is
that there is an everlasting cain
paign going on. Since the primary
systnem has been in vogue candi
dates have been grooming as soon
as one campaign closes. The last
contest in this State closed a full
year ago, and the wonder has been
that candidates did not begin their
work for the next contest a week
after the second primary of 1902.
Fortunately, there has been no
campaign this year, and politics
have been allowed to slumber for
a while. .County newspapers haye,
however, been writing about candi
dates and issues, and people who
interested have been talking about
the future of certain mn n1 iiow
more or less in the pubic mini d,
At the primary last year a prac
tically new set of State o flicials
was solected. With the exception
of Treasurer Jennings all the
State house officials were selected
for their first terms last summer,
and there seums to be an unwrit
ten law that where office holders
attend to their duties they be given
a second term without opo1ition.
Tnis custom seein to apply to
practically all elective oflices, and,
therefore, the chances are favora
ble to at least another year of po
ltical rest. Last year Governor
Heyward had a strong string of
opponents. H) will be a candi
ditto for renomination, and just
now the outlook is that he will
have no opposition. There was
some talk immediately after the
first primary of last year that Mr.
Martin F. Ansel would be pressed
for governor at the next primary in
view of the surprising and extra
ordinary race that he made with
the strong field in the race. He
has stated that he will not oppose
Governor Heyward for re-election,
but he has his eye on the govern
or's chair after that.
Nothing has been heard politi
cal ly from former CJongressmnan
Talbert since the last primary.
The impression now is that if Gov
ernor Heyward's administration
continues to run as smoothly and
satisfactorily as at present, lie will
have no opposition in 19041. Then
the dloors wvill open. Mr. Ansel is
already in the field, Mr. Talbert is
almost certain to be, but the older
men will have to look to their
laurels, as it is rumored that Speak
er Mendel L. Smith, of Camden,
and Representative T. Yancy WVil
liams, of Lancaster, wvonld make
excollon t gubernatorial timber, and
the friends of ieiutenant Governor
John TV. Sloan naturally expect
huim to be promoted.
With this prospect the likeli.
hood is there will not be much of
a camlpaign next year unless some-.
thing happens and that is always
possible. Capt. Jennings may
stanid for re-election for State
treasurer, but lie has before him
the defeat of Dr. Timmermain, who
stood for a third term, and the
custom of finding new men. If
there were any other office for
which Treasumror Jonni iin migh t
shift he would stand a better
chauice for a third term, If he
runs there will be opposition .
There is sorme talk that Col. Boyd
will run against Adjutant and In

Aside from the expenses of living
in Columbia there is the expense

states the legitimate expenses of a

In this State every candidate has
to pay his own transportation-un

with tho hotels, pay for advcrtis

papers, have supplementary tick
ets printed, encounter the commit
toe with the list for the building
of a new church or' bridge, attend
the fairs and perhaps arrange to

boxes, and "friend" usually ac

surprising how theso little things
One of the candidatcs in the re

tab on what money he spent. le
is satisfied that every cent lie ox

3ssary expenses, and that he did
not use any money in an improper
way or to influence a single vote.
His books show ' that he actually
expended $523 for expensea during
the campaign and that he "chipped
away" $200 for incidentals, sub
scriptions, tips and the like. In
other words, the expenses of the
primary were $723. This applies

KILLED BY TURK8,
VICE CONSUL OF UNITED STATES AT
Aidmiral Cotton Ordered to H1ohi Hils
Ships Ready to Sali-Cousul Was
Washington, Aug. 27.-The
Ptate Department has received a
cablegram from Minister Leish
man at Constantinople, announc
ing that William G. Magelssen,
United States vice consul at Beirut,
Syria, was assassinated yesterday,
while riding in a carriage. The
American minister immediately de,
manded action by Turkey.
Acting Secretary Loomis today
cabled Leishman, instructing him
to demand the immediate arrest
and punishment of the persons
guilty of the murder. No demand
for money indemnity for the man's
familv has yet bonal made but
probably this will follow.
Admiral Cotton, commanding
Lhe E uropean squadron, has been
-aabled by the Navy Department to
have his vessels in readiness to
move to Beirut, which is on the
eas!ern shore of the Mediterranean
sea, in case the demands of the
iUited States government upon
the T1urkish government are not
Magelsson, who was a Scandina
vian, was appointed vice consul at
Beirut, Sept. 20, 1899. At the
time of his appointmeet as vice con
sul he was consular clerk in Tur
key. Magelsson was appointed on
recoinmendation of Senator Nelson
of Minnesota, wvho says that he
wasi the son of a prominent Luth
cran minister. He was born in
Minister Leishman's cablegram
was dated yesterday and stated
thiat the assassin ation occurred
Sunmday, the mnnister being in
formod of the crime by Consul
RatvudIal. Thei consul stated that
the murderer wvas not seon and
was niot known.
The State Department has for
warded Minister Leishman's dis
patch to President Roosovelt at
Oyster Bay, and is now in commus
nication with him on the subject.
Trho announcement of the assals
sination of the American vice con
sul, following so soon upon the as
sassination of the Russian consul
in Turkey, created strong comment
in oflicial circles and the suggestion
was mado that such frequent as%
sassinations indicate a very dis-.
turbed condlition of affairs in the
Turkish dominion. Minister
Leichmnan gave no particulars of
thle assatssination andl the State
Deopartmuent has no information ase
to cause of murder.

TO COAL FIELDS.
Southern May Build Line From Wal
halla Into Tennessee.
A year or more ago there was
much talk about a railroad from
Walhalla, S. C., through Macon
county, N. C., and into Tonn. but
the question has for some time been
still.It is now learned that this line
has been surveyed and the con
tract has been partly lot for a new
road for the Southern from Wal
halla to Maryville, Tonn.
A look at the map of thecotintry
will show at a glance what a sav
ing in carrying coal can be - effec
ted by the building of a 100 miles
or less of railroad, through a fer
tile country that needs the road
and will produce cnough to give it
business. From Maryville to Wal
halla a direct line is less than 100
miles, and, while it is a mountain
ous country, the grado .is. east.
Lov.iags Maryville for 20 miles or
more you strike the Tennessee Riv
er, and following it and its tributa
ries you get very near Walhalla
without crossing any hills. We are
informed on good authority that,
many years ago a tunnel was made
nearly through tho hills, four miles
from Walhalla, by a railroad com
pany which failed, and it is pos
sible that the Southern will utilize
this long lost work in crossing to
From Knoxville to Seneca, S. '3.,
wvhere the road from WValhalla
crosses the Southern's main line,
it is 288 miles: and that is the
route over which is hauled coal
and other freight. From Knox
ville to Seneca, by Walhalla, it is
but little more than 100 miles,
It does not take an expert to
see that this road opens a new
route that is surprising. Freight
traflic is now congested over the
long lines named, aiid the build
iug of this road would be an easy
solution of that congested state,
and open a comparatively unknown
and beautiful part of North Caro
