mum BUILDING
AT TBE WORLD'S FAIR
A Reproduction of Old Castle
Built by Frederick ?, of Prussia.
The plans for the German National
" Pavilion at the World's Fair, St
Louis, have been completed, and sub?
mitted to the director of Works, Isaac
S. Taylor, for approval. It has been
: the endea vor of the German Govern?
ment to keep the architecture of the
building in harmony with the Exposi?
tion buildings in the immediate vicini?
ty. The pavilion will be a fairly ac?
curate reproduction of the central por?
tion of the royal castle at Charlotten
burg, near Berlin. This old castle
occupies a conspicuous place in the
history of German architecture. It
was built about the end of the 17th
century for and under the direction of
Frederick I, first king of Prussia.
The castle was designed by Andreas
Schlueter, the greatest German
architect of that period.
The architecture of tbs Charlotten
burg Castle is imposing. The main
facade is in two stories, crowned by an
enormous stilted dome. The facade of
the first floor is in rustic stone. The
second floor is ornamented with
engaged Corinthian columns. In the
center of thegfacade is a projecting bay
' crowned by a beautiful classic pedi?
ment.
The drum of the dome, which is also
surrounded by a Corinthian engaged
colonnade, is higher than one of the
stories of the building. The curve of
the dome is broken by six bull's eye
windows and is crowned by ai towering
lantern surmounted ty a sculptured
figure.
In the pavilion the ground floor will
be used for reading, writing office
and reception purposes. The second
floor has been set aside for purposes of
representation. It will embrace an
actual reproduction^ the state rooms
of the Castle of Charlottenburg. These
rooms will be fitted up with precious
old furniture, Goelirs, and silver
ornaments, the products of bygone
days. In a separate building but con?
nected with it will be a restaurant and
a "Kneipstude," a combination of
smoking room, -drinking room, restau?
rant and fraternal society lodge
room. This subsidiary building will
harmonize completely, with the
architecture of the main structure and
will be connected with it by. an alley.

Lord Salisbury's Absentminded?
ness Has Queer Manifestation.
A London cablegram to The New
York Sun says: Many stories have
been told about Lord Salisbury's
absent-mindedness and strange mis?
takes in identifying vvell known per?
sons combined with a supreme indiffer?
ence for all with whom he finds
-himself in company. The latest of
these stories which has gone the
rounds this week tells of an incident
which occurred at the King's levee on
Monday.
Lord Salisbury was present and was
standing, apparently ? wrapped in
thought, among a crowd of distinguish?
ed men, when the bishop of London
approached and greeted him. To the
surprise and chagrin of the latter Lord
Salisbury failed utterly to recognize
him and the bishop was forced to ex?
plain who he was and to recall to the
former Prime Minister the fact that
he had appointed him bishop of Lon?
don in 190L
Later, on, when the bishop was con?
versing with the King, he expressed
regret that Lord Salisbury was ap?
parently unable to recognize his
friends, and told whai had happened.
The Kir g laughed heartly and said : '
* ' He lias treated me worse than that.
Not long ago, while having an audience
with me, he gave a beautiful example
of thinking aloud. On a table close
tb his lordship stood a photograph of
myself. Lord Salisbury, taking it up,
gazed at it for a few moments and then
remarked, 'Poor old duffer; I wonder
if he is as stupid as he looks.' "

It was nt until the autumn of 1870
that the first diamond was found on
the present site of Kimberley, says a
writer in the Cosmopolitan. There
was a shallow, circular depression,
known as Dutoitspan, on tbe edge of
which a farmer named Van Wyk lived
in a cabin plastered with mud. This
hut had no architectural pretensions,
but, in its way, it went beyond the
luxury of .Fifth avenue, for the mud
with which it was daubed was
sprinkled with diamonds. One day
Van Wyk's children prospected the
plastering of their home and ex?
tracted several gems. The farmer and
his friends bean digging at the spot
from which the mud had been taken
and found more diamonds. Miners
swarmed in, and a new camp, called
Dorstfontein, sprang up. In June, of
the next year, the Kimberley mine
proper-one of the four great deposits
that form the present Kimberley group
-yielded its first dian_ond.
Paper gloves and stockings are now
being manufactured in Europe. As to
the manner in which the former is
made little is known, but the stock?
ings have been carefully examined by
experts, and they are loud in their
praise of them. It is claimed that
they will last almost as long as
ordinary stockings. The reason, they
point out, is because the paper of
which they are made, was during the
process of manufcture transformed
intoa substance closely resembling
wool, and was then woven and other?
wise treated as ordinary wool.
Bennettsville, May 26.-The novelty
works of W. P. Breeden, Jr., on the
edge of the town were totally destroy?
ed by fire last night. The loss is $6,
000, with no insurance. Sparks,
driven by a strong, south wind,
threatened the town, but a spread was
finally prevented.
The Masons of Florence at an early
day will erect a temple to cost $10,000.
The lot has already been purchased
and arrangements perfected. The
Presbyterian Church of Florence will
erect a new church building at a cost

THE BIRMINGHAM ROBBERY.
Two Young Wen Arrested, and it
is Said a Third Arrest will be
Made.
Birmingham, Ala, May 27.-City
detectives claim to have unravelled the
mystery of the $7,000 robbery of the
union depot ticket office in this city,
which occurred on May 16. As a rs
sult two yoting men, one of them be?
ing the son of J. M. Bibb, superin?
tendent of -bridges and buildings of
the Louisville and Nashville Railroad,
have been arested and are now in jail.
No one will be allowed to see them
and not even the name of the second
man arrsted can be ascertained. It is
claimed that the robbery was accom?
plished by boring a hole through the
ceiling over the ticket office from a
vacant room on the second floor of the
union depot and through this hole the
robbers looked through a magnifying
glass and watched the employees of
the office work the safe combination.
It is said that on the night of the rob?
bery they entered the office while the
night ticket seller was asleep and
worked the safe combination. The
detectives expect to recover all the
money and also to make a third arrest
RECANTS FROM FREE SILVER.
Dr. E. Benjamin Andrews no Lon
ger Believes in the Heresy.
Lincoln, Neb., May 26.-Free silver
has lost an advocate in the person of
Dr. E. Benjamin Andrews. The Chan?
cellor of the University of Nebraska,
in an address before the class in eth?
ics, the largest in the university,
practically announced that he no long?
er entertained the views he had once
held concerning silver coinage. This
change in views had been gradual in
development, but it was now fixed and
definite.
In company with many others a few
years back Chancellor Andrews said
he had been misled by the arguments
of public men, and particularly by a
celebrated geologist of Europe, who
had, after much study and investiga?
tion, announced that the supply of
gold was being exhausted and the
world's mines would soon cease to
yield a sufficient quantity of that
metal.
This made it necessary that there be
another standard of value. Time had
proved the prophecy of the geologist to
bejfalse. Instead of lessening, said the
chancellor, the output of gold had
greatly increased and the supply now
seemed inexhaustible, and as a result
prices of commodities, instead of go?
ing to a lower level, had constantly
appreciated.
Chancellor Andrews did not enter
into the political phase of the question.
Since coming to Nebraska he has
been conservative in all his utterances
in connection with his former hobby,
nor was undue stress given to his ap?
parent conversion in his address.
Four Sudden Deaths.
Edgefield, May 27.-The sad intelli?
gence reached here today that Mr.
Davis D. Padgett, county supervisor
of Edgefield, dropped dead.' in a store
in the city of Augusta at 8 o'clock
this morning. Fatty degeneration of
tlie heart was the immediate cause of
his death.
DonnaJds, May 26.-Ed Gordon, a
young man 18 years old and son of
James Gordon, a prominent farmer of
this section, died very suddenly yes?
terday evening. He was apparently
in perfect health until he fell in the
yard and in a few moments was dead.
Dr. Jno. A. Robinson, a prominent
physician of Little River, this county,
died of apoplexy this morning. Dr.
Robinson - was sitting at a table writ?
ing when he fell from his chair dead.
News, has just reached here of an?
other sudden death. Mr. Wm. Taylor
of Antreville dropped dead yesterday
evening. His death is attributed to
heart failure.
Here is a pointed paragraph from the
Philadelphia Record:
" There is a weird hint that the daily
newspapers of Philadelphia, Pittsburg
and other cities will make no report
of the Machine State Convention at
Harrisburg next week. In the absence
of busy special correspondents there
would be no reports of the speeches of
the Machine* leaders lauding them?
selves and each other and expressing
approval of Gov. Pennypackers'apology
for the muzzler. The convention
would thus be consigned to Cimmerian
gloom As the nominations of the con?
vention are already slated, including
that of William T. Snyder, one of the
muzzlers, for Auditor General, the
omission of any reports of its proceed?
ings would be no loss to the public. ' '
The suggestion is worth considera?
tion, lt would hurt politicians a great
deal more for the purposes to ignore
them entirely than to cartoon and
"libel" them.
Washington, May 27.-The Ameri?
can men of war will go to Kiel for
regatta week by order of the president
as a special mark of friendship to the
German emperor and in appreciation
of the many courtesies he recently has
shown the American people.
Denver, Col, May 27.-A special to
the Post from Newcastle, Wyoming,
says: "W. C. Clifton, murderer of
Mr. and Mrs. John W. Church, was
lynched by a mob from Gillette last
night. The mob battered down the
jail door, holding up the sheriff and
deputy the while, and hung Clifton to
a bridge west of the town. Clifton's
head was cut off by the fall of forty
feet."
Poictiers, France, May 27.-Marcel
Renault, the well-known racer and
maker o.. automobles, who was injured
by the overturning of his machine dur?
ing the first stage of the Paris
Madrid race, died shortly after mid?
night at Couhe Verac. Renault never
recovered full consciousness from the
time he was found stretched out be?
side the roadway.
Z Paul Blonet (Max O'Rell; died
Sunday night in Paris from the effects
of an operation performed last year
for appendicitis.
Savannah, Ga, May 26.-At Rincon,
eighteen miles from Savannah, today,
Dr. M. C, Wilson was shot and fatal?
ly wounded by Benjamin Davis, who
is 80 years old. Trouble has existed
between the two men for some time.
IMMIGRANT AGENTS
Must Pay $500 if They do Busi?
ness in the City of Anderson.
The city council held a special meet?
ing yesterday afternoon and passed an
ordinance imposing a license of $500
on immigrant agents doing business
in this city.
There is already a State law requir?
ing a license tax of $500 from im?
migrant agents hiring laborers to go
outside the State, but this ordinance
seeks to place the same tax on agents
employing laborers to leave Anderson
and go to other points within the
State.
The occasion for the adoption of the
ordinance was the presence of an im?
migrant agent in the city who has
been employing laborers to go to York
county to work on a big dam being
constructed on the Catawba river.
Then man carried off about 40 negroes
yesterday, many of whom were under
contract to work for Anderson people
an many of whom were owing money
here. The agent said he was coming
back and the city council has under?
taken to keep him from doing so.
Anderson Mail, May 26.
KILLED LION WITH TEETH.
Desperate Encounter of a Hunter
in Wyoming.
Landen, Wyoming, May 25.-All re?
cords of hand to hand encounters with
wild beasts have been smashed by An?
son Sercoff, of Torrey creek canyon,
who bested a mountain lion a few days
ago. Sercoff was prospecting when
he ran across the lion's den. Deter?
mined to secure the kittens he dug a
way into the den. A :? that instant the
mother lioness sprang upon him and
a struggle ensued.
The lioness overestimated its leap
and did not secure a good hold, and
Sercoff was enabled to twist about and
face the animal. With one hand he
grasped its lower jawjin such a man?
ner that it could not use its teeth,
and with the other managed to cross
its forefeet and hold them against his
body, so that her claws could not be
brought into action. Lioness and man
rolled over together, and Sercoff work?
ed his body in between the beast's
hind legs., in this position the lioness
was able to do very little with her
claws.
Sercoff buried his teeth in the
beasts' neck and tore frantically at the
flesh until he had severed the jugular
vein. The lioness soon became weak
and died from loss of blood.
Sercoff weights only 120 pounds. ?
WRECK NEAR BIRMINGHAM, Ali.
Eight Men Killed, a Number Hurt
and Two Trains Burned.
Birmingham, Ala, May 27.-A
double-header, eastbound freight, and
a westbound freight on the Southern
Railway, collided this morning at
Bryan, twenty-two miles west of here,
with the result that both trains were
burned and eight men killed. Im?
mediately after the collision the wreck
took fire and bumed rapily.
The officials of the road have not yet
explained the cause of the accident,
but it is alleged that an operator went
to sleep on duty ad failed to deliver
an order. The burning wreckage
destroyed the wires and cut off com?
munication for some time.
Archbishop Ryan of Philadelphia is
very fond of a joke and in spite of
his multifarious duties finds time for
many amusing quips. When Bishop
Spalding of Peoria visited the arch?
bishop some time ago it was arranged
that the Western prelate should be
entertained by a lady prominent in
social and charitable affairs. The arch?
bishop wrote him, giving some de?
tails regarding his prospective hostess,
and ended his letter thus: "The lady
who has all these virtues treats her
husband like a brute, P. S.-She is
very fond of brutes, being an officer of
the Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Animals."
Antwerp, May 27.-The British
steamer Huddersfield, which sailed
from this port yesterday evening for
Grimsby, England, collided with the
Norwegian steamer Uto. Huddersfield
foundered. Twenty-two Austrian and
Italian immigrants lost their lives.
The crew were saved. It is believed
the immigrants were crushed in the
collision. The bows of the Uto were
damaged.
New York, May 27.-Four persons
were suffocated to death and three
others were so badly burned that it is
feared they will die, in a fire early to?
day in the five-story apartment
house at No. 306 West 335th
street. The fire is said to have been
jof incendiary origin.
Evergreen, Ala, May 26.-Dr. B. J.
Shirley, of Moroe County, was killed
today by his two brothers-in-law,
David and James Smith. More than
twenty-killings have occurred in the
county during the past ' eighteen
months.
Harrisburg, Pa, May 27.-The Re?
publican State convention ? today en?
dorsed President Roosevelt for renom?
ination and declared against any
change in the present tariff schedules.
The State administration was strongly
endorsed and no mention was made in
the platform of the Grady-Salus libel
law enacted by the recent legislature.
Mullins, May 26.-This morning
about 1 o'clock fire was discovered in
the large three-story brick tobacco
plant of Schoolfield, Boatwright &
Co. This plant is composed of three
large buildings each separate, but
connected by large fire doors. By much
effort and hard work the fire was con?
fined to one building, resulting in a
loss of about $18,000, partly covered
by insurance. The loss included about
100 hogsheads of tobacco.

SECOND CONVENTION OF THE KIND
That Has Been Held in This Stale
-Summary of the Address of
Dr. Geddings on the Causes of Typhoid
Fever and the Means of its Propagation.
Columbia, May 28.-The State
Sanitary Conference was called to or?
der today by President Reardon, of
Sumter. This was the second conven?
tion that has been held. There were
in attendance : E. LB earon, Sumter,
president; Dr. J. M. Green, Charles?
ton, secretary, and Dr. JW. Falk,
quarantine officer of the port of George?
town, vice president. Besides these
there were present, Drs. J. W.
Babcock, J. H. Burkhalter, W. J.
Rivers, S. F. Williams, all of Colum?
bia; E. H. Hayden, Summerville;
Peter Bacot, State sanitary inspector,
Charleston; F.. T. Legare, Charles?
ton; George Cofield, health inspector,
Spartanburg; T. Grange Simons,
chairman of State board of health,
Charleston; D. J. Hydrick, Orange
burg; Secretary James Evana, Flor?
ence ; E. F. Darby, Magnolia ; As?
sistant United States Surgeon Gen?
eral H. D. Geddings, Washington;

A. H. Hadyen, Summerville; T. H.
Moore, Camden; M. W. Quip, Union;
R. A. Lancaster and Lee G. Guerry,
Frank A Coward, of Columbia.
Dr.. T. Grange Simons stated that
an effort had been made to have the
organization recognized by th? General
Assembly and that the outlook was
hopeful.
It was decided to have regular ses?
sions from 10 to 4 o'clock, and at 4
o'clock until evening. The programme
of this afternoon was largely devoted
to considering papers on pure water.
Papers upon this topic were read by
Dr. T. Grange Simons, of Charleston,
and Dr. Folk, of Georgetown. Dr.
E. F. Darby, president of the South
Carolina Medical Association, made
an address upon sanitation, Dr. Robt
Wilson, Jr, of Charleston, discussed
"Malaria," urging an acceptance of
the theory that this disease was com?
municated to man by insects, probably
the mosquito, known as anopheles.
Dr. Geddings, who is sent as a re?
presentative Of Surgeon General Wy?
man, of the United States public
health and marine hospital service,
delivered a most interesting address
upon water supply as related to
typhoid fevers. The epidemic of
typhoid fever at Plymouth, Pa, has
become classical in medical history.
No epidemic has been more through?
ly investigated than this. The town
derives its water supply from a branch
of the Susquehanna River. The sur?
rounding territory is largely populated.
It was shown that a suburbanite was
brought from Philadelphia with
tpyhoid fever, in midwinter, when
the ground was covered with snow.
The dejecta were carelessly thrown
out upon the hill side, where they re?
mained until the spring thaw, which
washed them down to the river, about
the intake pipe of the water supply of
Plymouth, and the source of the
epidemic was not discovered until
typhoid fever had demoralized the
whole community, and doctors and
nurses from other towns and cities
were brought in to assist in caring for
the numerous fever patients. Spring?
field, Mass., which was noted for its
pure water sapply, was invaded by
typhoid fever in the early 90's. The
source of that invasion was traced to
the milk supply. Investigation show?
ed that the disease was confined to a
single milk route for some time. The
infection took place throngh leaks in
the milk cans, which had been placed
in a small stream to cool.
An epidemic in Savannah, in the
spring of 1894, was traced to infection
of the Savannah River, through a
canal receiving sewerage and empty?
ing into the river above the intake wa?
ter pipe. Although this explanation
of the epidemic was viogrously com?
bated the number of new cases of
typhoid fever rapidly ceased after the
water of the Savannah River was cut
off, and the new supply introduced
from Artesian wells. Instances might
be multiplied ad infinitum, proving
that infection has gained access to
the water supply through the dejecta
of typhoid patients. The lesson
tanght was that the people should be
shown the necessity of guarding their
water supplies and so preventing these
epidemics, which are attended with
great suffering and mortality. There
can be no more important subject than
the careful guarding of the water
supply against sewerage contamina?
tion. Typhoid fever is an intestinal
trouble, and it is only fair to assume
tb at a water supply proven to be
affected by sewerage will sooner or
later produce typhoid fever.
What can be done to prevent it? He
believed that the curse of the smaller
communities is the reckless disposal
of household waste and sewerage.
Surface wells are means of gathering
surface water. It can be shown that
a surface well will drain an area equal
in radius to the depth of the well ;
into such wells cesspools often drain.
Given one case of typhoid fever it will
not take long for the water supply to
become infected from dejecta teeming
with typhoid germs. When rivers
become infected with these germs in?
nocent persons, a hundred miles down
the stream may contract the disease
by drinking the impure water. The
time has come when the cesspool must
go from a community or neighbor?
hood. In some communities earth
closets and chemical disinfectants will
afford the greatest amount of protec?
tion. Rivers should be subjected to
frequent sanitary surveys. Statutes
should be enacted prohibiting dejecta
being placed where water supply may
be contaminated. Let the shallow
well be abandoned and get the water
supply from deeper strata ; the deeper
the supply the safer the water. Filtra?
tion is one of the best means of purifica?
tion. Boiled water is an excellent
theory; but it is difficr.it in practice,
as individuals will sooner or later
drink unboiled water, and the un- '
guarded act brings catastrophe. It is
so unusual and difficult to isolate
typhoid germs from a suspected wa?
ter supply that it may practically be
regarded as impossible, but if in it
is found sewerage bacteria, such as
the colon bacilli, it is justifiable to
infer that it is only a question of time
when the typhoid infection will ap?
pear in such a water supply. The re?
proach of having typhoid fever in any
community ought to be deeply felt,
and sanitarians in a few years must
expect to be upbraided unless they can
check the spread of typhoid fever.
Water supply cannot be regarded as
the only means of infection, as was
proven by the commission appointed
after the Spanish-American war to ex?
plain the prevalence of typhoid among
the volunteers. This investigation
proved conclusively that the common
house fly is frequently a source of in?
fection, carrying the disease germs
upon its feet and in its intestinal
canal. The importance of this source
cannot be over-estimated, and typhoid
cases should be screened to prevent the
spread of the disease.
Dr. T. Grange Simons's paper upon
water supply was an admirable dis?
cussion upon a subject of growing im?
portance to this section. It dealt
largely with facts and figures, and
was plainly stated.
Today the special committee appoint?
ed to examine the sanitary condition
of the State House, in consequence of
Mr. Gantt's letter, inspected the
buildings, closets, cellar, etc, Dr.
Robert Wilson, of Charleston, and
Dr. Geddings, of the. marine hospital
service, went over the building with
the committee appointed by Governor
Heyward.-News and Courier.
SUMTER AS SEEN BY A VISITOR.
Old Sumter is a famous town,
And all its streets with sand abound ;
' Tis well adorned with shady trees,
Whose lofty boughs bend to the breeze.
Its lumber plant supplies all need,
With neatness and with rapid speed ;
Long leaf pine logs in great number,
Are furnished for all the lumber.
A Telephone plant runs full time
Its furnishings are superfine ;
The stock in ev'ry thing's complete,
No plant with this one can compete.
Of plants enough has not been said,
Another one works for the dead
Makes finest coffins decked with grace,
For mortal man's last resting place.
All these have ample stock on hand,
And can supply ev'ry demand;
This stock will favorably compare,
With any that is made elsewhere.
Churches loom up for age and youth,
In which is taught the way of truth ;
Free Salvation to ev'ry one,
Through Christ the Father's darling
Son.
The city schools are all first class,
To train the young, nowhere surpassed ;
The fire department holds high rank,
Water abounds in ev'ry tank. ,
Now long may Sumter's banner wave,
O'er fair women and heroes brave ;
And when earth's toils with them are
past,
May " Welldone, " greet them all at
last. W. M. Foster.

Baltimore, is rapidly improving and
is expected home next week. His
friends will be glad to know that he
has recovered, but some interest was
taken in his physical condition owing
to his connection with the Tillman
case. It has been thought that he
would be unable to be present at the
next term of court, thus necessitating
another continuance, but unless some?
thing unforeseen happens he will be
on hand. It is asserted that Tillman's
attorneys will be ready for a trial.

PLAIN PROOF.
What This Gentleman Says is
a Mere Statement of Facts.
No one can have any reason for dis?
senting from the particulars and proofs
which follow, for verification of the paine
is within easy reach of every resident of
this vicinity. That Doan's Kidney Pills
promptly and effectually cure kidney com?
plaints is substantiated not only in this
particular case, but by all who have given
them a fair trial. Testimony likewise
shows that you do not have to take them
indefinitely to be cured.
Walter McLachlin, a machine hand, em?
ployed at J. Holliday & Sons' planing mill,
Wheeling, W. Va., address 3032 Jacob
street, says : "Had I not used Doan's Kid
dey Pills when I did I would not be alive
now. I was in a terrible condition and al?
though I took quarts of medicine 1 got no
better, but worse. Friends spoke of my
bad appearance and thousands knew about
it. I could hardly get around, and felt and
locked like a dead man more than a living
one. Doan Kidney Pills were a blessing
to me, half a box relieved me, three boxes
entirely cured me and now I feel as though
my back was as strong as that of any horse
in Wheeling. I would rather have a box
of Doan's Kidney Pilis than the services
of all the doctors in the state."
