- - A TILE RICIIMOXD PAL LADIU3I AND SUN-TELEGRA3I, WEDXESDAT, JTLT 1, 1908. liAi'-WILL BE X FEATURE OF DAY Industrial Exhibit on Fourth Of July Promises to Be Noteworthy. DECORATIONS ARE LAVISH. MERCHANTS IN THE BUSINESS SECTIONS OF THE CITY WILL DECORATE EVENT PROMISES TO BE A SUCCESS. WITNESSES CAH . NOT BE FOUND Case Against Parker Again Postponed. Saturday the Fourth of July Richmond will be ablaze with the na tional colors. It Is an assured fact that the decorations in this city that date will be the most elaborate and ettracive in years. All the merchants along the business district of Main street have agreed to decorate their places of business with flags and red, w hite and blue bunting. At the meet ing held last evening by the West End Business Men's club, it was de cided to decorate stores and do every thing possible to make the Fourth of July celebration a complete success. J. B. Beckwith stated today that ar rangements have practically been completed for the industrial parade on the morning of the Fourth. - He and Henry W. Deuker made a partial canvass of the merchants, manufactur ers and Jobbers yesterday asking them 'to assist the movement by being rep resented in the parade. They were quite successful in their efforts. Gaar, Scott & Company and Robinson & Company, will each be represented by an engine and a separator. The Starr piano company will have a large wagon with a uisplay of pianos. The Wayne Works will be represented by one of its latest automobile models ftnd by other machinery manufactured by the concern. The Davis Carriage company will have a vehicle display. The Richmond and the Champion mill3 will have wagons in the parade. The Jones Hardware company will have an attractive wagon display. Nu merous other retailers, jobbers and manufacturers will be represented, the entire list being too long to publish. Those business firms which have not yet been solicited, but desire to par ticipate in the parade should phone to J. B. Beckwith. The parade committee desires to liave the Wayne County Automobile club represented In the parade by as many cars as possible. The club will probably take favorable action in this matter. Shopmen from all the fac tories in the city will march, then last, but not least, thero will be two crack bands, a platoon of police and , three companies of the fire depart ment. The parade will form at. the court house and promptly at 9:3 it will move east on Main street. The line f march extends along Main street as x'ar east as Glen Miller. As soon as the marchers arrive at the Glen there will be a balloon ascention. The bag if this balloon measures 10 feet in .ircumference and is the biggest ever .'een in this city. The police have been unable to lo cate George Bishop, Carl Burk ,and Omar Hibbs and the case of the State vs. Lewis Parker, charged with violat ing the liquor laws remain's continued. Attachments have been issued for these three men, who are wanted as witnesses, but the police have been un able to secure any trace of them. The case against Parker is continued in definitely and instructions have been issued to arrest the witnesses, if lo cated. This means the delay of their return to the city if they have left, will not benefit them nor Parker, ma terially. George Bishop, one of the missinb men was arrested last Satur day night.

PHYSICAL DIRECTOR GOES TO GENEVA Horton Will Get in Training For Local Work. R. J. Horton, the newly selected physical director of the local Y. M. C. A. left today for Lake Geneva, Wis. He will take a course in training work and get in condition to take up the work as soon as the local building is opened. THE MODERN HAT. Its Serious Defects From the Hygienic Point of View. The size, the style and incidentally the cost of women's hats, says a writer In the Berliner Umschau, have taken op so much of the time of the people who make hats a study that they have not had a moment to devote to the head covering of the sterner sex. Con sidered from the hygienic point of view, little fault can be found with the hats of our sisters, although some of thera, when viewed through the glass of reason, are unthinkable. But men's hats are faulty from the physician's point of view, and a wider knowledge of the defects of the modern h;U would add to the already large army of bare headed men. In order to demonstrate which hats should be avoided a per fectly healthy man was placed where ; the rays of the sun could strike him dl-' rectly. He wore while taking the sun ; bath various kinds of hats for a period of fifteen minutes each. Every hat con-1 tained In the crown a thermometer, and these recorded as follows: The one in the panama hat 77 degrees, the straw i sailor 81, thesllk hat 8S, the felt hat i)5 and the black hat and 3-achting cap 90 and 100 degrees respectively. . , . iji-J-Jl .. .V.'. ..... .

A Bath a Month. ; Apparently the people of Persia are not great believers in the old maxim "Cleanliness is next to godliness," fot baths are only taken once a month by the people, when they go to the public baths and make amends, so to speak, for the infrequeacy of their ablutions by spending a whole day getting clean ed and trimmed. At the baths they are washed, shaved, dye their hair and nails, get shampooed and spend the rest of the day eating buns and drink ing sherbet. There are fixed days for men and women, and on bath days a man goes about the streets shouting "Hamum!" ("Bath day!"). After the bath the ladies have their hair plaited In a number of thin plaits, which are not opened and combed out until the next bath day comes round. Ida Beeson, Greensfork R.

HADLEY BROS. Thought Only of the Dynamite. Some grim stories are told of Lord Kitchener, says the .United States Ga zette, and we have read one which, although we cannot vouch for the truth of it, has a decided Kitchener flavor about it. A young subaltern who was in charge ef some works that were in course of construction in the Punjab had the misfortune to lose some na tive workmen through an accident with dynamite. Fearful of a repri mand from headquarters, he telegraph ed to the commander in chief. "Regret to report killing of twelve laborers by dynamite accident." Back is said to have come the laconic message, "Do you want nny more dynamite?" This Ballot Not Good After 5 p. m. July 2 Palladium and Sun-Telegram Niagara Falls and Canada Voting Contest.

It was a fine large water melon of the kind that grows in the sands of Georgia.

In fact, attack fellow is "ncomfortable ifhe gbes for any a of Jnie without ; water. And ret nobody" is mere improvident than be. Give him two gallons of water, twenty pounds of flour and two or three sticks of tobacco and tell him that he will get no more for three sleeps viz, three days he will delib erately settle down and not be satisfied till he his finished the lot. I have known a civilized and clothed black fellow who was traveling with me sit down after dark and wash his clothes (a most unusual proceeding) when he had only three gallons of water and fifty hours' riding before he could get any more, and this with the thermom eter registering 112 In the shade. This is not a thing that occurs once or twice, but always. The black man will not look five minutes ahead, nor will experience teach him. A gambit on a small scale is dear to the heart of every black fellow, and it is a com mon occurrence for one of them to swap a brand new suit of blue dun garee for an old frayed white coat, thinking that he will be able to sell or deal the latter away and make a profit simply because it is white, an unusual : color with them. But one good point these black men have. They never complain when they find they have made a bad bargain. Thia is possibly because they forget with whom they made the deal. Australian Cor.
