BROTHER AND SISTER WALK
FROM OKLAHOMA TO ALABAMA
Children of Methodist Minister of Stillwater Reach Cordova
After Walking 750 Miles En Route to Ashland to Visit
Grandparents—Hike Taken for Pleasure Trip
BV A. SiriXIVAN.
Cordova, July 8.—(Special.)—Clive Har
ris, aged 18. and ills sister, Motier, aged
10, arrived here this morning, having
walked through the country’ from their
home in Stillwater, Okla., a distance of
over 750 miles.
They arc on their way to visit their
grandparents in Ashland, and are taking
the hike as a pleasure trip and for its
educational features. Their father is a
Methodist minister at Stillwater, Okla.,
and was glad to give his consent to the
journey, at the lad’s suggestion, realiz
ing the great opportunity it afforded for
the study of life and nature as well as
the establishment of self reliance and
lmrdihbod. They left home June 2 and
after visiting their grandparents at Ash
land for a few weeks will return home
about September 1, to re-enter school.
Another sister, aged 20, left with them,
but after walking 400 miles was compelled
to return with a sprained ankle. They
are not obliged to earn their way, as
ample funds are sent along ahead of
them by their lather to cover their daily
needs. They came by way of Little Rock
and Memphis, taking the railroad routes,
and so far have always managed to stop
over night at some hospitable farm house,
with the exception of one night in Arkan
sas, where they were compelled to find
a resting place over night in the woods.
Their rosy cheeks and quick step be
tray no weariness, but they are consid
ering riding the balance of the way from
Cordova to Ashland, leaving here at 2:35
over the Frisco.
The average miles walked per day thus
far is 21, and .the fact that they covered
33 miles yesterday show’s the couple to be
in good condition.
HYDROAEROPLANES!
WRECKED ON LAKE
_:_
Squalls Play Havoc With
Illinois Birdmen—AH
Are Rescued
Chicago. .July 8.—Two pf the fhifce hy
pro-aeroplanes which, stalled frotg Chi
cago today to fly to Detroit were wrecked
over Lake Michigan by squalls ang fell
into ,the waves far from land. Ah tony
Janus of St. I-ouls 'and his mechanic, Paul
McCullough, were picked up off South
Chicago by the steam sand dredger
Dahlke. Walter Johnson of New York,
Hying alone, was rescued near Whiting,
lr-d., by the South Chicago Cnited States
life-saving crew. Jannus' machine was
abandoned in a squal after the dredger
had started to tow it ashore. The life
savers brought Johnson’s craft to shore
Hnd he may resume his flight.
Beckwith Havens, carrying as passen
ger .1. P. it. n. Venplanck of Flslikill. N.
Y„ owner of the machine, reached Mich
igan City in safety, the only one of the
aviators originally scheduled to start who
made the tirst lap.
Jannus whi the first lo leave Chicago.
Havens followed- 10 minutes later. John
son’s Start was delayed by engine trouble.
Roy 1. Francis of Safi Francisco, who
rose from Clarendon beach, in the north
ern part of the city, did not attempt the
flight in Michigan City, but landed in
stead at Grant park, the starting point for
tlie contest. He will start from here to
morrow . in an effort to Catch up with
Havens.
Runs Into Thunderstorm
Jannus ran Into a thunderstorm- with
fierce squalls of wind when he had cov
ered about half the distance. The ma
chine was forced to descend, hut the lake
was so rough that It was with difficulty
that Jannus and McCullough could keep
afloat. The men were paddling des
perately in the effort to keep the craft
right side up when the dredger steamed
up lo them and threw them lines.
A few minutes later the storm became
so severe that the Dahlke found it Impos
sible to tow the aircraft and was obliged
to east it adrift. The hydro-aeroplane
drifted out of sight In a few minutes, ap
parently a wreck. Jannus and McCullough
almost’ exhausted were revived in the
cabin of the dredger and a short time
after landing proceeded to Chicago by
train.
Jannus was able to make a landing on
the water and was in good shape when
the life-saving crew pulled out to him.
Kngine trouble had forced him to descend,
hut his scraft was said to be In condition
to proceed.
Dropped Into Water
Havens, who left Chicago a few min
utes before 1 o’clock, droped into the
smooth water of Michigan City harbor
at 1:4:j p. m. The distance is about
60 miles via. the air route. Mac&tawa
Buv is his next scheduled stop.
Johnson remained tonight at Whit-;
lng, Ind., and will start againt tomor
io>* morning, it was said at aviation
headquarters here. .I annus and Mc
Cullough are out' of It. Jannus said
tonight they would endeavor to re
cover the engine of their machine,
which is adrift somewhere on the lake
supported by the pontoons, life pre
servers and wood work of the craft.
Jannus said a broken propeller brought
him down, but that h<?» was able to
make a good landing in spite of the
rough water.

WILL GO TO MOBILE
Members of Bar Association
in Montgomery Leave
Tomorrow
Montgomery, July 8.—(Special.)—Mem
bers of the Alabama State Bar associa
tion living in Montgomery are making
arrangements for the trip * to Mobile,
where the Bar association will meet this
year in annual session. Col. Alexander
Troy, secretary of the association, will
go to Mobile Thursday morning, and the
other Montgomery lawyers who will at
tend will leave for the Gulf City on the
atfernoon train.
Governor u'N'eal expects to attend the
meeting of the association, though he has
not yet decided what day he will go to
Mobile. It is probable that tile governor
will lie able to attend the session only
One day, as official duties will prevent
Inm trom Iemalning longer from ills of
fice.
In preparation lor the meeting of the
State Bar association, the members of
the executive committee of the associa
tion have met and drawn up a series of
resolutions for the regulation of the an
nual procedings this year. The most im
portant of these resolutions is to the ef
fect that politics and political discussions
shall not enter into any feature of the pro
ceedings. the idea being to entirely di
vorce politics from the bar association.
Another resolution looks to the prohibi
tion of negroes as members of the asso
ciation. While thdre are no negroes at
present members of the association, the
resolution provides that in future none
shall be eligible for membership.
The members of the executive commit
tee of the association are; W. T. Seibels,
chairman; Leon Weil, Leon McCord, Rob
ert G. Arrington and Alexander Troy, all
of Montgomery.
YOUNG GIRL’S DEATH
BAFFLES POLICE
Wilkesbarre, Pa., July 8.—While local
police are baffled a/ the mysterious death
of Alice Crispell, IS years old, and are
holding Herbert Johns, who had been
friendly with the girl, the state authori
ties are working on the theory that Miss
Crispell may have been the victim of a
jealous rival of Johns.
Miss Crlspell’s oody was found in Har
vey's lake yesterday. Johns, who says
he will establish his innocence at the
hearing Friday, was the last person seen
with the girl so far as is known.

urged by the governor to designate some I
section of the public road in his county to
be improved during “good roads days," j
and that such Improvement be made un
der the supervision of an engineer or some •
[other competent person.
"Let each county vie with the other in j
this important undertaking." said the gov- !
ernor. "Let our people imitate the example j
set by other states, where lawyers, doc
tors, bankers, merchants and all classes i
of the people contributed from one to three i
clays' labor to the improvement of the |
roads within their counties."
A suitable medal will be presented to the
person who contributes most liberally to ;
the improvement of roads in his county, |
the probate judge oi every county having
been requested in the governor’s procla
mation to furnish the names of those who j
take the most active interest in the work.
The Governor’s Proclamation
The governor’s proclamation is as fol
lows:
•‘State of Alabama, Executive Dept.
• "Whereas the value of our farming
lands, the products of our soil, our mines
and our factories and the attraction of
rural life, as well as our industrial de
velopment would-be largely enhanced by a
better system of public roads and high
ways throughout Ihe state, and. In order
to lend official encouragement to the
growing sentiment for better roads, now.
therefore, I. Emmet O’Neal, as governor
of Alabama, do hereby by this proclama
tion name August 14, 16 and 16 as 'Good
Roads, days,’ to be observed in every
county in Alabama.
"1 earnestly urge that the probate judge
in each county shall designate some sec
tion of the public road in his county to be
improved during -aid ‘Good Roads days,'
such improvement to be made under the
supervision and rt Lection of some engi
neei or otner competent person
“I also urge that after such section of j
the road within the respective counties is
designated for improvement that the pro
bate judges, boards of revenue or courts
of county commissioners shall cause *o
be made written plans and specifications
describing how such improvements shall
be made and be filed in the probate judge's
office, and that each probate judge shall
prior to said Good Roads days secure a
list of all persons who are willing to work
said roads, or to make .contributions
therefor, and invito all classes of our cit
izens able to do manual labor to meet r.u
the 14th of August along such section of
the public road .10 to be improved, at 7
o’clock on said date, and to work and
continue working such section of the pub
lic roads to l.e improved until the expira

"Get each county vie with the other in
this important undertaking. Get our peo
ple imitate the example set by other
states where lawyers, doctors, bankers,
merchants and all clases of the people
contributed from one to three days' labor
to the improvement of the roads within
their counties and by which method
splendid results have been achieved.
"I suggest that each probate judge re
quest those who are unable to do physical
labor to employ a substitute and that all
classes of our people be Invited to make
contributions in material or money.
“Every intelligent man in Alabama ad
vocates good roads, but such advocacy
can bring no material results unless it Is
evidenced by contributions in labor and.
money or road making machinery, ma
terial and tools.
“The probate judge of each county is
requested to forward to this office the
names of those In each county contribut
ing most liberally to the improvement of
the roads during these good roads days,
said names to be filed among the archives

daily press and a suitable medal to be
presented.
“I earnestly urge that every board of
trade, the mayor of every municipality
and every member of every good roads
association In the state co-operate with
their probate judge in giving practical
effect to these suggestions.

WARM 1 POCKET !
CAUSES DEATH OF i

Lieut. Loren H. Call Dashed
to Death in a Practice
Flight—Fought For /
His Life
Texas City, Tex.. Jyly 8.—The dangerous
thing known to aviators ns "a warm air
pocket." is held responsible for the In
stantaneous death today of Lieut. Loren
H. Call of the aviation corps of the
second division of the United States army,
stationed here.
About two hours after sunrise Lieuten
ant Call making practice landings had
risen from the aviation field which bor
der* the Gulf of Mexico; had turned
hts big machine northward away from
the water; crossing the brown tented
army city and was flying over the level,
treeless stretehos near the artillery camp
which lies farthercst Inland. His machine
was at an altitude of about 500 feet plain
ly visible to several soldiers who say
that It seemed to be running smoothly,
and that without warning It suddenly
turned Its nose downward and plunged
almost straight to the earth.
Every Bone Broken '
The Impact broke nearly every bone in
the young aviator's anatomy and made
kindling wood of his machine, also wedg
ing Its fragments so tightly about his
crumpled body that It was difficult to
extricate his inanimate form.
The warm air theory was advanced by
other officers at tho aviation camp who
knew the location over which Lieutenant
Call was flitting. The accident happened
shortly after 7 o'clock. While a board
will be named to investigate the opinion
expressed is that nothing remains about
the debris to show the real cause of the
mishap.
Spectators said that Lieutenant Call
fought every Inch of his long drop In an
effort to right the machine and after
that was hopeless to save his life.
Fought for Life
Private Smith of the Aero squadron
said that the flying machine seemed to
halt and plunge so abruptly as to pitch
Call forward out of his seat. He caught
the forward rail with hoth hands, his
body dropping down and hanging below
the machine. With convulsive Jerks Call
seen trying to draw himself upward
to the machine by main strength as if to
regain the lost saddle again. For about
tho first four hundred feet he fought to
get back Into the machine above him and
then gave up letting go the bar and drop
ping down ahead of the plane body erect
and perpendicular, feet seemingly braced
to break the shock. He landed true to
the Intent, but the force of the plunge
was too terrific for the gameness of the
man to overcome. Some of bis leg bones
were driven through the soles of his feet
Into the ground and against the taut
muscles bones snapped at var'ous places
up to his hips. Then the machine came
down on top of hint. The watch of the
lieutenant stopped exactly at 6:45 o'clock.
A few days ago he fell 100 feet into the
bay In front of the camp, but was not
injured.
OIL SUIT DELAYED
Government Suit to Recover
Oil Lands Must Await
Court Decision
Washington, July 8.—The trial of the
government’s suit at Los Angeles for the
recovery of $500,000,000 worth of oil lands
•held by the Southern Pacific railroad prob
ably will be delayed until the supreme
court of the United States has decided the
suit of Edmund Burke and other private
litigants against the railroad.
This was indicated at the department of
justice today, although a final decision
will not be reached until Attorney General
McReynolds has received a report from
Attorney Townsend, his special assistant
in charge of the case, winch is pending on
demurrers. The Burke suit, one of the
important cases left over by the supreme
court for probably decision in the fall,
involves, it is said, the same issues as tlie
government aotfon. The lower courts, it
is pointed out, hardly would be willing to j
decide the government’s case until the su
preme court had rendered Its decision. The

WEATHERLY WOULD
DIVIDE TAG DAY
Commissioner Weatherly stated yes
terday that he did not know exactly
what form his amendment to the tag
day ordinance would take. He said he
was investigating the matter, but that
lie was inclined to believe that the day
should be divided up between at least
two organizations, the Boys' club and
the sisters of St. Vincent's hospital,
who call the day "Brassard day.”
V thoroughly agree that the way It
was the matter was a 'nuisance,'' said
Mr. Weatherly. "The ordinance is good,
but I merely believe that the St. VIu- ]
cent authorities should also have a
chance to raise money In this way.”

All capital available
for use makes a great
er volume of business
possible, and increases
the general prosperi
ty. In extending cred
it, we have endeavored
to act liberally, but
with a conservative re
j-ard tor the saiety of depositors anct
stockholders. Preference is naturally
given to customers, but when we had idle
funds, we have frequently discounted well
secured paper for persons who were not
keeping accounts with us.
For the progress made our apprecia
tion is extended—to those who have given
us their patronage, and to others also,
who have evidenced a friendly regard for
the institution. We have entered upon
the tenth year of our history, with the pur
pose of continuing to be useful to the
community, and of giving the best pos
sible service to customers.
JOHN H. FRYE, President.
