185 M acres and Is far away from any
railroad. It is a 20 mile drive from

born is still standing although In a
bad state of decay. At present it Is
being used as a storage space for
farm machinery. Whether President

known to his friends.
President Harding has told close
friends that he expects to visit the
farm in July and possibly sooner to
plan improvements. Friends say that
contemplated improvement Include
a modern bungalow and a golf course.
The farm was purchased from
Harry K. Erickson who has owned It
for several years and whose wife Is
a second cousin of the president It
Immediately adjoins the quiet little

when his family moved to Caledonia,
in Marion county about ten miles
northeast of this city.
The president's father, Dr. George
T. Harding, Sr., who is a practicing
physician here today told of the pres
ident's early ambition. He wanted to
oe a, nsnerman. vine desire came
from frequent fishing trips with his
daddy in the creek running through
the home farm. Intimate friends say
the president never has become a
good fisherman although he plays at
tne sport at times.

purchase developed the fact today
that Dr. George T. Harding. Jr.. of
Columbia , recently purchased the

DEATH TRAP IN OLD
TORfB POSSIBILITY
Brltisb Press Cromments on Poison
That Killed Carnarvon
WINS NEW TRIAL
Mother
Succeeds In Behalf of
Serving 10 Years.
Boy
London, Aprl t. The London press
in Its voluminous accounts today 'of
Lord Carnavon's life and death re
flects the popular feeling that perhaps
there really Is something In the story
that the ancient Egyptians set a mys
tcrlous death trap In. the tombs of
their rulers so as to punish by means
of poison those who might disturb
these sealed resting places.
Superstitious souls ever since the
Infection suffered by Lord Carnarvon
became known have contended It was
possible he was the victim of retrlbu
tlon. Fears of further retribution, It
is suggested may deter Egyptians
from touching the tomb again, but
Sir Wallls Budge, keeper of Egyptian
antlquties In the British museum,
scoffs at this Idea, saying that if the
excavation enterprise continues to be
financed he Is sure there will be no
trouble in procuring native labor as4
"the most powerful influence In the
life of the modern Egyptian worker
is money."
Sir Wallls said he had never en
countered literary records suggesting
that vengeance would be visited upon
persons entering thetombs of Pha-
roahs but he added:
"Had It not been such an old tomb
it might be reasonable to suppose
that poison had entered Lord Caer
narvon's system from the gas present
In imperfect mummification."
