AT BAILEY BROTHERS
Thief Calmly Caters Clinton Store
and Purloins Valuable.
' 'Clinton. Dee. 12.?The most excit
hig of recent oocurrnnces was a bur
glary. During Saturday night the store
of Dalley Brothera was broken into
and the contents examined and select
ed from, evidently w;th deliberation
and what might be called "chooslness."
jrhe visitor entered through the side
door on the north, climbing over the
iron bars and apparently knocking
?out the panes Of the window. The
ollice was ransacked, every drawer in
it pulled open and the safe was tam
pered With but not opened. The easli
register was left open and empty so
nothing was done to It. A till con
taining a little change was broken in
? to with a tool obtained from the hard
The intruder seems to have tried
on garments of every sort and the
floor was strewn with various kinds
carried In stoek. About $200 of ready
made clothing was left in a heap at
the front door the supposition Is that
the fellow did not dare make a light
Inside and carried them where the
electric light In front would enable
him to select. He even had the bold
ness to no into a display window for
an overcoat that took his fancy. Fully
llfty pairs of shoes were scattered ov
oj the Stole.
A slngulai thing was the apparent
fact, that the robber had not a wea
pon. In his investigation of the of
liee he round a Winchester which had
probably been there for ten years Mr.
thilley thinks, unloaded. He took it,
went around to the hardware depart
ment for ammunition, and loaded It.
Thon he must have kepi it lying on
Uu- counter ready for use in rase of
a surplsc while he "shopped." It was
found on the counter
The store wm closed on Saturday
night about 0.3U and the discovery was
mad;1 by one of the clerks. Mr. David
Hobo, about 10 o'clock Sunday morn.
In?r. He glanced In on his way to
Sunday school, saw something wah
wrong and investigated.
u'o estimate can be made of the loss
Uli the stock was so broken into There
i? no clue to the identity of the thief.
ft was evidently an amateur job,
ond done by a very bold man.

I LETTER FROM BRAZIL |
(By Dr. A. B Langston.)
Di-. Alva B. Langston, the son of
Mr. Thos. S. Langston of Maddon
and personally known to most of our
readers, lias kindly consented to
write a scries of letters for The Ad
vertiser from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil,
where he tills the chair of theology in
lhi> Baptist College, He has been in
the South American city a little over
one year, and his contributions will
contain much of the life and habits
of the inhabitants of thai great coun
try. The first installment follows,
under dale of October 117:
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil,
Oct. 27, 1910.
Editor The Advertiser:
The weather is about the Mrst thing
that a fellow begins talking about so
I may as well say to your readers that
wo are Just now finishing up our
spring and entering real summer The
seasons south of the Equator are. of
course, just the reverse of the sen
sons north of the Equator. Decem
ber, lanuary and February are our
real hot months, ami they art hot
too. In the middle of the day, it is
not advisable to be out in it much.
Last year lust after my arrival here I
was complaining about the sun hurt
ing my bead, when one of my fellow
missionaries who had been here a
long time replied that it usually af- |
footed the weakest spot. 1 replied
that I had the advantage of some of
my brethren and that was that I had
my weakm I'S located. That 's worth
Hut we will escape the worst part
of the heat by spending tho summer in
a ne ib\ mountain town. Wo give
vacation in our school during Decem
ber. January and February. So there
is really no necessity of our remain
inn In Rio during these not months,
\\'e are expecting to go to Frlburgo
this year. in some later article 1
wish to iieai with the different phases
i f the subject more in detail so I will
mnko this letter more general. I was
astonished not long s'nro at some
statements that a very prominent
American mad'1 in regard to Brazil
or South America which statements
were entirely misleading The fact
is von ccn nake almost any pnrticu.
lar statement about Brazil and it
will be true in some part of Brazil,
What I hope to do however, is to give
some adequate idea of the country,
its people, its industries and the like.
I took a s-hort trip some time ago
out into the country from Hio and
was surprised at its condition. I
went almost sevcnty-nve miles
through what seemed to me to bi>
splendid lands, but with scarcely any
of it under cultivation. 1 saw acres
and acres of good corn land lying
idle, and this was within a half hour's
ride of Hio. 1 thought that they had
this land well cared for but no. The
kind of agriculture that I saw was
of the crudest kind, the old fashioned,
not 2U goose neck hoe. but the old
fashioned hoe Is about the only farm
utensil. I occasionally saw a rude
plow with an ox to it. 1 remember
now a new ground with stumps any
where from knee high to waist high,
the tops of the trees were burnt on
an attempt was made to burn them,
and the rest left on the land. The
fanner then goes in among the brush
and plants Iiis corn or grain with an
old fashioned hoe. In all the seventy
five (75) miles I never saw a good
one-horse farm under cultivation. Hut
don't think all of Brazil is like this. |
I'll tell you though about the agricul
ture of this country. 1 remember too.
seeing on this trip a short distance
from Hio ar Old cart like those 1 have
seen in Sunday school books. Hike
those that were used 2,000 years ago.
Yet in Hio you see tts many automo- !
biles as most of the cities of the same
size. So you see the contrast. You
can find most any ConCltlOtl here that
you want, the oldest along side of the
newest, the richest along side the
poorest, the ugliest along side the
most beautiful, the gentlest along side
the roughest. It is a place of constant
contradiction. That is why it is so
difficult to give an adequate idea of it.
In Hio you can llnd private residences
I that are palaces: but in the country,
you can find houses with no floor, one
room covered with grass and occU
,.i (d by a big family. The Brazilians
have big families. I asked an old man
thi' other day how mr.n;," children be
had. lie said thirteen and thought
that was a small family. Well. I go
to a Catholic picnic Sunday which
meets but once a year, so my nexi
letter will be aboyl ''hit.
