Women Doctors in Siberia,
*.V . - ,
/ A number of influential Siberians
j. are petitioning the ministry of education
in St. Petersburg to allow women
to be admitted to the medical
faculty in the University of Tobolsk.
> The petitioners point out that there
is a wide field for women doctors ih
Siberia, where it is often difficult for
settlers to get medical aid.
t There are many Mohammedans in
m the country, and it is explained that
W only women doctors can come to their

Many women have entered the
medical profession in Russia proper,
and there are a great many women
practicing dentistry, a department of
surgery which does not seem to have
attractions for. the English women.
f A Record Hailstorm.
One of the worst hailstorms ever
*, known in the United States occurred
September 5, 1898, in Nodaway
county, Missouri. The path of the
storm was about three miles wide
and eighteen miles long, its greatest
violence being felt over a region of
tour square miles east of Claremont.
V , At one point in this region the fall of
. hail was so heavy that a drift unprotected
by artificial means remained
lying on the ground for four weeks
> after the storm. At the end of that
time people in the neighborhood
were found gathering the hail for the
purpose of making ice crjam. During
the storm cylindrical pieces of
ice were picked up four inches long
by about two and a half in dimeter.
The growing corn was practically all
destroyed. In a field of eighty acres

To Watch Convention.
Washington, May 13.?Senator
Bankhead, of Alabama, left Washington
this afternoon for Columbia
for the purpose of attending the
South Carolina State convention at
that place Wednesday. In the event
he can not get things going right
for Congressman Undewood, it is understood,
he will try to have the convention
pass a resolution authorizing
a preferential primary. South
Carolina is strong for Wilson, ac&
cording to what is said here, and it
f would seem from the plans of Sena|
tor Bankhead that he would use the
preferential primary plan as a last
888 resort for Congressman Underwood
|? to test the feeling in that State. Tomorrow
he will confer with some of
j the Underwood men in order to prepare
for the day following.

Chicago, May 13.?Standing at

last night, Policeman Roysell pointed
out to a chance observer couples
on motor cycles who darted past, but
not so rapidly that the tight-fitting
trousers of the girls were not plainly
ri "One girl in particular," the policeman
said, "may be seen any warm

A. C. L. Storage Sheds and 7,596
Bales of Cotton Burned.
Savannah, Ga., May 12.?Ignited
by a lightning bolt coming seemingly
from a clear sky, twenty acres of
storage sheds at the Atlantic Coast
Line Railroad wharves here were
swept by fire to-day, causing loss estimated
at $460,000. One fireman
was severely and several slightly injured.
In the sheds 7,596 bales of
cotton were burned, including 500
bales of sea island cotton.
Three tugs and the United States
boat Tybee played streams on the
flames. A drenching downpour that
lasted for *an hour, rain mixed with
large hail, made no impression on
the fire. Fireman Will Kearney suffered
a broken leg. The loss is said
to be covered by insurance.

Jacksonville, May 13.?Although
feeling runs high in Gainesville
against the negroes held in jail for
the murder of Marshal C. H. Slaughter
and Deputy Sheriff White, of
Archer, Fla., reports from the office
of Sheriff Ramsay, of Alachua county,
this morning indicate that mob
violence is not feared.
J. A. Manning, the deputy, who by
feigning death succeeded in wounding
one of the negroes, Cain Perry,
and in holding three others captive
until help arrived, is in a serious
condition from a bullet wound in the
abdomen. He is being praised
throughout the county to-day for his

authorities believe there will not be
sufficient evidence to hold any others
than the Perry family.
It is now certain that the negroes
planned to ambush the officers in retaliation
for the killing of Ben
Stokes, a "blind tiger" operator some
two months ago by Marshal Slaughter,
who shot in self-defense.
Kills Two Men.
Knoxville, Tenn., May 13.?James
and Luther Sizemore, cousins, were
shot and killed late Sunday afternoon
by Deputy Sheriff David Elliott, of
Bell county, Ky. The dual tragedy occurred
in a soft drink resort at Four
Mile, Ky., near Middle&boro. The Sizemores
are said to have been drinking
and Elliott attempted to arrest
Luther Sizemore, who had a pistol.
Luther fired upon the officer, who retaliated,
killing him. James Sizemore
then attempted to secure the
pistol of the dead man, whereupon
Elliott shot him also. Elliott's son
was shot in the leg, and seriously
injured. After killing the men Elliott
went to their homes and notified
their wives and then surrendered to

He is a jovial chap and always has
a cheery word for his friends and acquaintances,
and, in fact, is rather a
good mixer. One morning in winter
he dropped into a cafe patronized by
some rather astute politicians and
greeted the bunch with:
"Hello, boys, it's snappy this
morning; thermometer stands at 20."

Hopes Feud Will End.
Jackson, Ky., May 13.?A prayer
for peace among the mountain gun
men was the last utterance of Ed.
Callahan, feud leader, who died or
Saturday night from wounds inflicted
by ambushed clansmen.
As he was dying he said: "I have
forgiven my enemies and I want their
to know it. I want all my people tc
live in peace, pull together and dc
the best they can."
Rumors that Callahan's friends
were gathering at his home at Crockettsvllle
when they learned of his
critical condition aroused fear of retaliatory
measures, which would
bring about a renewal of the bloodj
feud war and the countryside is
watching developments with inter
est to see whether Callahan's expressed
desire for peace will serve tc
avert trouble.
His body was taken to Crockettsville
to-day for burial.
TTndpr psrort of 100 armed mem
bers of his clansmen, the body of Ed
Callahan was buried this afternoor
at Crockettsville.
When the news of his death Saturday
night spread it caused more
excitement than his shooting fron

Letter from Mr. Bellinger.
Montgomery, Ala., May 9, 1912.
Editor The Bamberg Herald?Dear
Friend: Since leaving home I have
been so constantly on the go that I
have had no quiet time for writing.
As most of the route from Bamberg
to Macon I have traversed so often
as to be quite familiar and shall only
speak of Macon and other points of
interest on my trip over here.
Macon, the great central city of
Georgia, surely did great credit to
herself in entertaining the great
crowds of the old veterans and visitors
that claimed her generous hospitality
and was displayed with such
fullness as to measure up to our fullest
expectations It is needless to say
that the old soldiers were well cared
for, food and shelter were quite
ample. Furnished with a commissary
ticket I had the opportunity of
taking several meals where the veterans
were fed in great numbers with
breakfast, dinner and supper. It
was a sight to see more than a thousand
all marching in at one time and
ouietly and orderly seated at the
long tables well furnished with a
substantial fare, such as ham and
nor ore nnfpAo ate and with a fare
, ?
well reminder of good cheer each
plate was furnished with a nice orange.
It was the kindness and
thought that gave double value tc
each gift and attention.
. It would be incomplete not to mention
the "boy scouts," for theirs was
a noble part and it filled the hearts
of all of the old soldiers with joy and
gladness. As soon as we landed we
were met by some of this noble band
of young heroes. It was their kind
maners that readily impressed you
for with a cheerful salutation thej
received you and after being registered
they stayed with you and conducted
you to wherever you were assigned,
and they did it with such p
genuine gust of delight. I, in company
with my old friend, Mr. Calvir
Rentz, first wTent to quarters at the
great camp ground, Camp J. B. Gordon.
But the weather was very threat
ening, so we concluded that we would
move up into a more central part ol
the city and we found comfortable
quarters at the Y. M. C. A., a nev
large establishment, just completed
. with all conveniences and comforts
Here in a large hall one hundred
. nice, clean cots were provided, and
here our comrades found a most 4e
sirable place of rest and refreshmenl
at reasonable rates.
And all was quite orderly anc
. quiet, and nothing was allowed thai
, would disturb sleep or rest; and this
was the headquarters for many o:
our chief officers with whom we free
ly mingled and held pleasant inter
. course an'd conversation.
[ It would have done you good t<
, have seen my old comrade, Mr. Cal
vin Rentz, how he enjoyed it and hi:
tongue gave full utterance to hi:
feelings. For it was here at Macoi
that our old friend was mustered int<
; service, in a Georgia regiment moi<
than fifty years ago, and here he ii
again to meet his old comrades o:
i his young and strong days. We spec.1
? a few days together in Macon, anc
then traveled together as far a*
i Americus. Here we parted, leaving
him with his old friends, who so re
, luctantly gave him up more thai
' fifty years ago when he enlisted ii
the Confederate service; and afte'
. the war, as we all know, has mad(
his home in and near Bamberg
i whose hospitable home is ever oper
' to his numerous friends.
After leaving Americus, and ii
fact west of Macon, we passet
through a very desirable farmin*
country, not only cotton, corn anc
oats, the staple products of this sec
tion, but are extensively engaged ii
the peach business, more so than an]
other part of the State or the world
l as far as I know, for they have or
. chards embracing hundreds of acres
i I was speaking to a gentleman on th<
1 car just in from west of the Missis
sippi and he said that the crops her*
i were more advanced than any he hat
i seen, and it only confirmed my opin
> pinion that they were decidedly th<
) best I had seen since I left home.
I am with a host of relatives her<
5 and enjoying myself, but only for i
brief time, when I hope to be bacl
> at home with my dear old friends
The only thing to mar my visit ii
I that my cousin, Mrs. Holt, with whon
r I am staying, is at this time critically
ill and off in a hospital in Atlanta.
My stay here will be limited, and !
will be on my way back via Macon
the way I came. Yours very sin
cerely, L. N. BELLINGER.

and all.

in which it was made known '

A Novel Trap.
| A short time ago a hunter found
in a patch of woods in Connecticut
^ eleven large blacksnakes tied up in
( hard knots and stone dead. Two
telegraph wires ran through the
woods overhead, and a few days before
there had been a heavy blast
set off in a quarry near by. This
^ broke down the wires and started a
colony of blacksnakes from their
I slumbers in a neighboring ledge. One
^ of the wires was crossed in a distant;
city by a trolley wire, and hence the
(broken wires which lay near the
snakes' den made a death trap. When
the snakes came to the wires trailing
on the ground one after another
crossed them, touching the ends of
1 both wires at the same time. They
thus "short circuited" them and re1
ceived a shock which caused death.
' Immediately upon being shocked
each snake curled up in a hard knot,
thus opening the circuit and setting
' the trap again.
E Dangerous Riding.
i With the coming of spring, it is
r said, those who own motor cars in
, I a certain section of Massachusetts op.
erate them with considerably less
1 speed, not, however, always because
I of the county ordinances or out of
- consideration for their fellow citit
zens' safety.
One one occasion two motorists
1 were crawling up a highway where
t lately a friend (then riding with one
5 of them) knew they had formerly
f gone at top speed. The friend asked
- why the car was run so slowly.
"Why," exclaimed the driver of the
nri+'h norfont rmiuote "cco-nx
) body'^ carrying home garden tools
- now, and you can't run over a man
3 without risking a puncture."?Lip3
