Poor Pie is responsible for many of man’s (and woman’s) physi cal woes —but the pie needn’t be poor, and it may bring joy instead of woe. How ? Use nothing but COTTOLENE for shortening and the pie crust will be delicate, flaky, delicious, and so healthful that even a dyspeptic can eat freely of it and be comfortable. COTTOLENE can't be equalled as a shortening, and is abso lutel\ healthful. Genuine has this trade igSj mark on every pail. Take no other. THE N. K. FAIRBANK COMPANY, ST. LOUS and CHICAGO.

For several months past plans for the extensive improvement of Amelia Beach near Fernandina have been quietly matur ing. A stock company is being formed and Is meeting with much encouragement. Articles of incorporation have been drawn up, and several thousand dollars sub scribed by out-of-town parties to make Amelia Beach the most attractive sum mer resort on the South Atlantic coast. The plans mapped out are for remodeling the Strathmore hotel with an addition of fifty rooms, the building of fifty bath rooms and a number of cottages at Ocean City, somewhat similar to those already erected. A park is to be laid out and a bowling alley established. Other amuse ments, such as attract the throngs to the eastern beaches will be provided, but on a smaller scale. The underbrush is all to be cut away and the space beneath the trees planted in grass. The railroad track Is also to be extended considerably down the beach. During the thunderstorm at Jacksonville at boon Wednesday lightning struck a colored lodging house two miles west of the city and killed Ella Jenkihs, a colored vyoman, who was standing at the door of her room. The woman's clothing was cut te shreds, and her body scorched until it \vas almost as black as a.cinder. Sev eral yards of weatherboarding were knocked from the side of the house and a hole smashed through the roof near the chimney, where the holt entered. There were a number of other persons in the house at the time of the crash, but’they lortunately escaped any damage beyond a severe shock. Dr. Sohl was in the neighborhood at the time of the accident, and he was called in, but the woman was beyond human aid, having been killed. In liis opinion, almost instantly. The odd feature of the killing of the woman is that when she was struck by the bolt of light ning she was holding her infant in her arms and standing close by the side of her sister. Although the woman was in- Stuirtjy killed, neither the child nor the other woman was at all seriously injured by the lightning.

He llrromri Shipwrecked Off \t-iv lurk avail Fa lln an Easy Frey. From the Philadelphia Press. New York. July 30.—The night watch on Blackwell's Island turned out this even ing, and according to their account, cafe tured a sea serpent after a hard battle. He was sailing through the East river, evi dently making a short cut from Long Island sound, where he has been playing to crowded houses, to the New Jersey coast resorts, which he was to take In as part of his summer circuit. Owing, no doubt, to his attention being distracted by the many odd sights and sounds In the river, he allowed himself to run aground. Then th. guards at Blackwell's Island attacked him and dragged him ashore. A great difference of opinion exists as to the circumstances of the capture. But the one grand fact remains that the ser pent. or one of him, is caught; that Is, if the opinion of the medical staff on Blackwell's Island is final as to sea ser pents. Dr. George T. Stewart, chief of the staff of the Metropolitan hospital on the Island, made the following Important statement to-night: "Of course convinc ing proof as to the Identity of the beast can only be haj by a careful autopsy, but l hfivo little doubt that It is a genuine sen serpent. At any rate, It Is a good enough sea serpent for me.” The Blackwell's Island sea serpent Is twenty-five feet long and has a short head and a short tall. His captors saw very little difference between his shape and that of an ordinary rattlesnake. He has large, sharp teeth, and with these he made violent attempts to bite them. The sea serpent betrayed hts presence to one of the Island guards, so they say, by his cries of distress when he found himself aground. At first he tried to climb off the reef, but finding this Im possible began to yell vigorously. The night guard who found him saii that the cry sounded like one of pain from a big dog. He thought at once that a prisoner had been Injured In m iking his escape, nnd was helpless. Then he went down to the water's edge, and to his horttir he saw the green slimy eyes of the awful creature looking Into his with rage and hate. "He was snapping his teeth nnd foam ing „t the mouth," said the keeper. "His beard was eovered with blood and his hair was standing on end. I didn’t dare to go near him till I hail summoned some other men. We attacked him in a body and he died almost without a struggle. So soon did his death occur that some of the men who were Jealous of our bravery say that he was dead when we tackled him. But that's all nonsense. He was terribly alive and hungry, too, I should judge, by the way In which he snapped at us.’’ Whether this Is the same sea serpent that has been seen so often in the sound lately is not now plain. It Is generally be lieved by sea serpent experts there must be a school of the monsters in the sound as so many have been seen. Of course, no one can tell positively where this creature stranded on Black well's Island, came from. Perhaps there Is in truth a school of them in the sound, and the waters about New York city. Per haps this monster, which landed to-night at Blackwell’s Island, is the very one which was received this evening the fol lowing from New London, Conn.: The sea serpent was evidently informed that the New York Yacht Club would be here to-day and he promptly put in an appear ance in the lower harbor. He was seen disporting himself in true serpent style— performing his ablutions when seen by four of the citizens of this town. In a let ter to the public press these men give the following written testimony, to which they are willing to make oalh, viz: "The under named four men were out in a rowboat Monday night, when they came across the sea serpent. It rose astern of their boat and to their conster nation made for them. It seemed at first just a piece of seaweed, but when it raised its head and part of its body seven or eight feet out of the water they got out of the way as quickly as possible. When It sank into the water it made a noise that was something like the sound of a whistle. Henry Maynard, Jule Petrie, F. Saville, T. Ingram,” Capt. Hazard of the Sound steamer New Hampshire, saw the serpent on the night of July 16. When the New Hampshire was about twelve miles east of New Haven the captain heard a great splashing in the water. He turned the search light upon the place and saw a huge brown object low in the water, moving eastward. It seemed to be about seventy-five feet long, and it was alive. A foamy wake marked its track after It had passed. These are the facts to which Capt. Hazard will swear. Some of his passengers also claim to have seen the wonder, and make in teresting statements about fiery eyes and glowing scales as the serpent plowed along. Capt. Williams of the steamer Connecti cut reports seeing his snakeship about an hour after Capt. Hazard passed It. Sev eral Christian Endeavorers on board the Lowell will swear that they, too, saw the sea serpent. Farmer Blackwell, living ten miles to the westward, was aston ished one morning of late by a tremendous waterspout. He climbed up his haystack, took an observation and found that the water commotion was caused by a huge sea monster, which he believes to have been the sea serpent. t One of the most curious and interesting reports of the sea serpent comes from an elderly New Londoner, who owns a small yacht, on which he sleeps. The yacht was anchored not far from New London last week. One night, just as the owner had finished a letter to his wife, he hoard a strange shriek from out the waters like the scratching of a slate pencil upon a slate. He rushed up on deck and saw two huge red lights approaching him. At first he thought it was a steamboat and shout ed through bis cupped hands: "Keep off keep off; you'll run me down.” Another hideous shriek was the answer, and there arose out of the water what looked to be to the yacht owner an enormous cork- Bcrew with a grinning head on it.
