MR. HARRIS GIVES
The Mrs. Boyesen Case
HARRIS MAY SUE.
Objects to Asheville Ta
Dignified Letter from the Proprietor
or Whito Stone LtthTa Touching:
The Ashoville Citizen In publishing
an account of the death of Mrs. Boye
sen, has used language which Mr. Har
ris, proprietor of White Stone Springs,
thinks is not only untruo, but which is
entirely unwarranted by the facts In
tho case. Mr. Harris has sent a com
munication to tho editor of tho Asho
ville Citi/.on rogarding tho affair and
its troatmont by the paper in question.
Mr. Harris moro than intimates that it
is now his timo to institute a suit for
libel, as tho following communication
Tho Ashoville Citizen, Ashovillo, N.
C?Gentlemen: Tho sensational arti
cle which you published on the 10th of
this month in rogard to the death of
Mrs. Jnnio Stewart Boyoson is mis
leading and positively unti-ue in se*
oral respects It is calculated to injure
me and tho Whito Stone Springs Hotel
in tho eyes of tho public. I would liko
to feel that is not your intontlon and
that you havo published tho account of
her doath simply as a matter of news
and with no intention of injuring any
While you say that the physicians
state that Mrs. Boycseudiedof Bright's
disoaso, you take it upon yourself to
dcclaro that "she died of a broken
heart and grief, resulting from tho
shame put upon her." Again you say,
"but tho shock of the accusation is said
to bo tho cause of her death.
Tho last paragraph in tho articlo is
also misleading and was evidontly in
tended to mako tho improssion that
though her innocenco had been estab
lished, I had not been generous enough
to write to her and say so. As a mat
ter of fact I have never hoard of her
"innocence being established," and I
do not boliove any lottors have boon
found in hor room to th's effect "from
If I know my own heart nobody
would bo moro glad than I to establish
this woman's innocence. What I havo
dono was entirely for tho protection of
my guests, and a certificate to that of
fect was prepared by many prominent
persons In tho hotel at tho timo of tho
unfortunate occurrence and voluntarily
handed to me. I havo not found any
pleasure in this affair and never under
took a more unpleasant duty than that
which was forced on mo in tho inter
viewing of Mrs. Boyesen after she had
been suspected by the guests of White
Stono Springs. I approached her as
delicately as I knew how and stated to
her that if sho would give me the ad
dress of any responsible party any
whoro in the United States I would
tolograph at my own oxpenso, and If
tho reply was favorablo as to hor char
acter I would allow her to go on her
way and nothing should over be said
about it. This she flatly refused to do.
I distinctly told her that T did not want
any publicity given the matter, for I
knew that the tendency would bo to in
jurohcrand mo both. Sho requested
that her trunks bo searched and was
very solicitous that we do exactly
what was dono in tho searching of
thorn. I have her request and free
agreement in my possession now. None
of us would have ever touched her
property except at her request.
The guests at tho hotel must have
had abundant grounds for the suspicion
which they expressed to me, for Mrs.
Boyesen had acknowledged in the
presence of live gentlemen that sho
was in other guests' rooms while they
were all at dinner.
I trust that in justice to myself and
my business you will give this letter rs
wido publictty as you gave the libel
lous articlo of tho 10th of this month. I
have stood patiently a great many mis
representations in tho newspapers, but
tho worm turns sometimes, and it may
bo my time to go into the courts next.
(Signed:) j. T. Harris,
Proprietor White Stono Springs Hotel.
Boforo taking any further action
Mr. Harris will await a prompt reply
from tho editor of tho Asheville Citi
zen. Thero promises to be interesting
developments in this case.

TRI ?UTE OF RESPECT. ft1
The Foreign Missionary Society of ]
tho First Methodist Church, Laurens,
O. In loving remembrance of Mrs.
Ruth Mitchell Dial, who, aftor a ling
jring illness, passed peacefully tojrost,
August, 12, 1903.
Whereas, The Koapor Death has en
tered our midst and borne honco ono
whom wo loved, Mrs. Ruth Mitchell
Dial. As wo incot to perpetuate, on our
Hook of Record her merits as a mem
ber of this Society, wc cannot hotter
>xpress her worth than in tho word
"truo." This, sho was in all tho va
rious rolations of this lifo and truo to I
Him, who has called her "up higher."
As wo stood in our City of tho Dead,
where reposes hor sleeping dust wo
feel that sho is only gone before to that
Better Land, where "tho inhabitant
shall not say, I am sick'" And there
"Life's journey dono
Wc hope to moet and greet thee
And spend eternity together."
Resolved 1st: That in her seemingly
untimely death we fool that tho Hand
of God has sorely smitten, yet wc bow
in submission, knowing that Ho who
holds our destinies is "too wise to err,
too good to willingly alllict."
2nd: That wo extend to the bereaved
family and friends our tender, sincere
sympathy in this sad affliction.
3rd: That a blank page of our re-]
cord book bo dedicated to her memory;
that the Secretary forward a copy of
thoso resolutions to tho family and
havo them published in our county pa
pers and The Christian Advocate.

First Cost Not the Cheapest.
The first cost of an article does not
necessarily dotormlne its cheapness.
For instance, a sack of "Clifton" Hour
may cost you a littlo more than other
so-called patent Hours, but it will be
cheaper to you in the end. Why? Be
cause it will not only make more bread
to tho sack, but tako less lard and soda
to make It. Order a sack of "Clifton"
and mako a tost for yourself. It will
prove the truth of this statement.

White Stone Lithia Water!
Is the lightest water on the market. Wo real i/o that this is claiming a great
deal, and we oould not afford to make this assertion unless wo knew that we
could prove it to be true. Hut it docs not tuko an export to test tho toftness of
a Mineral Water. When carbonating a mineral water, if it is a hard water the
gases will not bo absorbed in the water, and when tho bottle is opened, the gas
es escape, and the water is left Hat and hard, while if it is a soft water, like
White Stone Lithia, it will retain its gases for hours after being unstopped.
