K< v. M. c. Johnson; pastor of the First
Methodist Church, South; at Rarbours
ville. W. Vn.. near Huntington, Is un?
der arrest In that city, charged with
stabbing K. B. Adklns, a wealthy brick
manufacturer of that place. Mr. Ad
Ulna is dying at his homo.
Mr. Adklns and Mr. Johnson werft
both directors In a big brick plant nt
Barboursvllle. Whether they were
quarreling about the affairs of that
eompanv or whether the tight was
purely personal, the police have as yet
been unable to determine. They were <
scon upon the street talking. Later
their talk grew louder, und finally
they exchanged banters. Mr. Adklns
resenting Mr. Johnson's sallies.
The brick manufacturer foiled the I
minister with bis fists, Jt Is said by I
friends of Mr. Adklns that when the |
pastor arose to his feet hp had a knife i
in his baud. One stroke made a fear?
ful' gash across Mr. AdkinS'S left |
breast and another almost severed the j
Jugular vein.
Mr. Johnson Is well known In this,
part of the State, having been a mem?
ber of tho West Virginia and Eastern
Kentucky Conference for the last tlf
to-rii years. He. surrendered Imme?
diately, but refused to say anything.

dent Emeritus Charles W. Eliot, of
Harvard, In celebrating his sbvenly
seventh birthday recently, asserted
thai bo believed that moderation, reg?
ularity of eating and sleeping and a
"wee" drop on occasions made ono
grow old happily. Concerning stimu?
lants. Dr. Eliot said:
"I am not one i>f those who believe
that it is necessary to abstain wholly
from the use of alcohol, tobacco, ten,
coffee and other stimulants. On the |
contrary, 1 fcei that there are times
when a stimulant used in moderation
Is beneficial.
"WliaL I am opposed- to is tho habit?
ual uso of stimulants, even In modera?
tion. The man who Is nccustomed to
take every day so much as a single
glass of whiskey is doing himself
more, harm than he. realizes.
"Recent psychological research, ns
conducted In this country and In^Cer- i
many, has made It certnln that the
j effoct of alcohol, when habitually used,
even In the smallest quantity, Is to I
diminish one's efficiency and render tho |
body moro susceptible to tho Inroads I

Miss Shores was not timid. She at- \

[ In tile absence or definite elites to

That their bodies ate fast in the mud

also a view entertained by man;-.
Hellere Drowning Accidental.
Extensive dragging. longing and

stated, she said she had prayed tor
