Spotswood, Sept. 1: —Mr». George
W. Helme, of Helmetta, widow of the
pioneer siiuff manufacturer of Amer
ica, is receiving congratulations from
her many friends upon Her safe ar
Tlval yesterday from the scene of the
European conflict. Mrs. Helme, who
ie eighty-one years old, was touring
In Europe at the outbreak of hostil
ities and immediately hurried to
London. She was accompanied by
her daughter, Mrs. Charles Strater,
of Kentucky, who remained with her
mother until her arrival in this coun
try. For several days Mrs. Helme's
friends and relatives were alarmed
over her whereabouts and l.er condi
tion, hut were later somewhat cheer
ed to lçarn, through the columns of
a New York newspaper, that Mrs.
Helme and Mrs. Strater had register
ed at the American embassy at Lou
don. Mrs. Helme arrived last week
In Canada, but decided to rest before
making the tiresome railroad journey
down to her Helmetta home. In
speaking of her experience, Mrs.
Helme told friends that she did not
become alarmed until they began the
trip across the ocean from London to
Canada. No unfriendly vessel was
encountered, however.
Among those who anxiously await
ed for Mrs. Helme's arrival was her
son, George A. Helme, the retired
president of the American Snult
Company, of New York City.

Jaraeaburg. Sept. J:—One of the
best fish stories of the season is be
ing told by V. ilUam Richard, ot
Uuckelew avenue, that had Its origin
Saturday afternoon last and the only
part of the yarn that is not fishy u
the fact that it is all true.
Richard was fishing off the white
bridge and hooked a pike estimated
to be around the four-pound size. Ia
trying to land it the flsh broke the
line off a few inches beyond the cork.
Several minutes later Howard Ap
plegate saw the cork bobbing up and
down and soon had his line around
it and in pulling in found the pike
still was fast on the hook. The tackle
was pulled ashore and in attempting
to raise the fish out of the water the
beauty managed to work himself free
when within his grasp.
Another line was baited and this
was also broken in the same manner
by a pike and later in the day was
fished up by Grayson VanCleaf, but
no fish was visible when the hook
was raised out of the water. He
made his escape before the hook was
lifted from the water.
Claims Horse and Wagon.
The owner of the horse and wagon
