Special Da3 to be Set Aside at James
town Exposition in Honor of the
Inventor of the Steamboat.
Norfolk, Va., Oct. 10.-Believ
ing that it is especially appropriato
that the name of Robert Fulton
should be honored at the James
town Ter-Oenitennial Exposition to
be held at Hampton Roads near
Norfolk in 1907, the authorities of
that great celebration have decided
to Set aside a day to be known as
Robert Fulton Day. The New
York state commissioners have ap
pointed Hugh Gordon Miller, now
of New York, but formerly of this
state, a representative to arrange
with the authorities for the special
honors which will be paid to the
memory of Robert Fulton at the
Exposition. He will appoint such
committees as may be necessary.
A movement is now on foot in
New York city to have a gigantic
monument erected in some part of
tho city commemmorating Fulton's
name. It is proposed to build this
memorial at a cost of more than
$600,000. It will serve not only
as a monument to the man who in
taoduced steam navigation but also
a s a tomb. Cornelius Vanderbilt
is the president and Mark Twain
the first vice-president of the asso
ciation which has been organized
to erect the monument.
Those at the head of the move.
mnuet desire to raise the money
necessary to erect the monument
by public subscription anid are
making vigorous efforts to popu
larise the movement. The official
name of the organization is the
Fulton Monument Association and
it has its headquarters in Park
Row, New York. A number of
designis-bave been submitted to the
association for its approval. The
one which has so far secured most
approval from the committee was
submitted by the sculptor, Leopold
Bracony, and shows on its base in
bass relief the industries that have
developed through the help of
steam navigation. It further syni

handsome in a pumpkin.

first move of tihe carver is to insert the
fork astrido tihe breastbone at the
point, plunginlg it deep enough to se
cure a firmz hold. Then remove the
drumstick with one etrokeo of the knife,
first cutting through the skin down
to tile joint, hitting it sqJuarely. It is a
little diflicuit to locate tis joint, but
by pressing the leg away from the side
of tho turkey it is readily found. It is
claimed that the turkey carver does
not remove the fork from the breast

it may, it is qiuito necessary to use the
fork ini separatinig the thigh from the
drumstick, and the hip ia a favorite

make a V shaped cut toward the joint,
holding the thigh against the side o't
the turkey with the fork. The drum
stick drops off neatly into the platter.
The next stroke removes the wing. A
deep cut through the bail and socket
joint severs tis with a part of the
breast meat. If tile knife does not
strike the joint at first, move it back

How to Kill On Cockroaches.
To kill cockroaches, take a quantity
f powdered white sugar and mix thor
oughly with plaster of paris, half and
half, says Good Living. Be sure that
It is powdered white sugar, for It any
ther kind is used the cockroaches will
dick out the sugar and leave the plas
r of parlis. De equally certain that
ou mix the sugar with great thorough
iess, as nearly as possible grain for
rain of the sugar and plaster; other
vise the roaches will fatten on the
agar and leave the gypsmil severoly
lone. Spread the mixture on the
)aths frequented by the pestiferous
ugs, and every one will eat until it is
done stiff and dead. Then you can
weep them up and burn or throw
hein into the garbage pail. Repeated
pplcations as often as necessary will
oon rid the premises. This method
vas pursued secretly for yeats by an
xpert, who made a large fortune out
f the English government for cleai
ng the roaches out of the postoffices
and other buildings. He was paid $25
a night, and, while many had tried for
ears to pry into the secret method, it
wan discovered only lately.
