denly worse ai 1.30 III tho morning,
ami he tiled soon afterward. Prior
io this, heart stimulation was re
sorted lo hourly.
In order thal Caruso should nm
lire himself, attending physicians or
dered him not lo speak, so during his
last night he uttered no word. Of
tho mombors of lils family present
at tho death bod tho most pathetic
was his aged mother, who bad al
ways clung obstinately to her little
home, despite her son's efforts to ac
custom her to tho material comforts
of life. Pressing also at the bedside
were his wife, who was Dorothy Ben
jamin, daughter of Park Benjamin,
of New York; Caruso's little daugh
ter, Gloria, and his son, Rodolfo; his
brother, Giovanni, sovoral nephews
and the composers, Vlnconzo Bell

when Caruso, only a few days ago,

Naples, Aug. 3.-All day tho body
of Enrico Caruso lay in the room

it was decided that the burial should
not take place until to-morrow. By

After the cermony tho body will

American consul will deliver a brief
address in behalf of the American
government sind the city of New

call his second home.
Naples in truth is a city of m..urn

como expressions of grief, many of
them ol' a lender nature, because of

Tho ceremony ended a feud that

Charlotte, N. C., Aug. S.-Special?
131 of the "Made-ln-Carollnas" Ex
position has been definitely thrown
the full strength of three of the lend
irgonizntlnns of North Carolina
.lion ?alton within ibu past few j
according Co ti mouncomont '<?> :
rom thc executive offices here of I
? ese organizations are tho .North
lina Press Association, tho North
olina Association of Commercial
.secretaries and the Woman's Club of
Charlotte, with a membership of COO.
Unanimity characterized tho action
of each body, the statement added.
The Charlotte Woman's Club voted
to undertake thc task of organizing
ti great exhibit, which will show the
part the women of the Carolinas
have taken in promoting the indus
tries. The club took an option on at
least 1,000 square feet of exhibit
space, which is an area as large or
larger than any other exhibit, Mrs.
C. C. Hook, the retiring president of
the North Carolina Federation of
Women's Clubs, was appointed by
Mrs. Eugene Heilley, president of
the local club, as executive in charge
of assembling this exhibit, in which
all of tho numerous women's bodies
of the two States will be cordially
urged to co-operate, to the end that
no opportunity will be overlooked,
and win for the women tho full
honor duo the part of groat import
ance they have taken in the develop
ment of the industries of the Caro
Such an exhibit will bc of histori
cal as well as educational and artis
tic interest, Mrs. Hook pointed out,
because of the wide variety of pro
ducts for which in former days the
women assumed full responsibility.
Tho present-day woman gives pari of
her time to the manufacture of a
great range of ai tides of beauty and
utility, including the products of the
canning and similar clubs, all of
which will help make up an exhibit
that should prove one of the most
al tractive to bo seen at the expo
sition. Such articles as the old-fash
ioned homespun cloth and the pro
cesses of and equipment for manufac
ture attract those days the keon in
terest of those whose knowledge of
them consist? of what they have
heard their elders say regarding tho
things of Civil War days.
Secretary Patton, when announc
ing tho decision of the Woman's
Club, declared he regarded the de
velopment of such an exhibit as ono
of the most important phases of the
work yet to be accomplished in pro
moting tho exposition. "The carrying
ont of the plans of the Woman's
Club, with tho assistance of all wo
men's bodies in tho two Carolinas,
will complote the exposition, for
every phase of the Carolinas1 indus
try will bo represented," said Mr. Pat
lon. "Few people probably fully re-'
alize the economic value of the work
women are doing and have done, as]
will be shown in this exhibit, and no
better means can be devised ?or ei
fectively carrying that knowledge to
all the people of the two Carolinas,"
he added.
Mrs, Hook ha? developed tentative
t Ians foi her work, und she will jin

hoi acquaintances win ari officers o?
. Oinon'? ..: ;::! n'..::i ' inns. i\:>eh body
will be urged to overlook nothing In
endeavor to win full share of credit
this exhibit will bring to the mothers
and wives and sisters of the two Car
olinas. "1 wish it said that 1 shall
be so glad to have all women inter
ested in this proposed exhibit to
write me, for wo must lose no chanco
10 make the exhibit absolutely 100
per cent complete," said .Mrs. Hook.
Secretary Patton also made pu bli';
a telegram from Louis T. Moore, sec
retary of the Wilmington chamber
of commerce, which said:
"It was my pleasure to introduce
11 resolution ?a the annual convention
Df the Association of Commercial Sec
retaries of this State, endorsing tho
Made-in-Carolinas Exposition and
recommending that trade bodies in
the different cities subscribe for
space. Same was unanimously adop
The Wilmington Chamber of Com
merce has been very active in direct
ing the attention of Wilmington man
ufacturers to the Importance of tho
exposition and tho value it will prove
in fostering the "trade at home"
Idea. In this connection Secretary
Patton pointed out that tho assist
ance given uniformly and unstint
edly by tho chambers of commerce!
in both States has largely made it
possible for the exposition director
ate to carry out its plans with such
great success so far, and with such
smoothness and rapidity.

"Walking the Chalk."
This expression originated on ship
board. When sailors returned from'
shorn leave lt frequently happened
that '.hey had Indulged so deeply In
alcoholic stimulants ns to bo useless
for the work of navigation; so it was
the custom of skippers to mark two
parallel lines on the deck with chalk,
and forco the sailors to walk between
them. If a man could "walk tho
chalk" without overstepping he was
adjudged to bo sober.
