The Gold Leaf. THURSDAY, DEC. 2, 1909. DR, COOK GOES AVVAYTO REST Arctic Explorer on ttis Verge of Nervous Breakdown. PLAGE OF RETREAT A SECRET It 8ald to Fear Plot to Steal Hla Recorda, and Wife Had Him Con veyed to Seclusion Wellman Doubta Cook'a Polar 8tory. New York. Nov. 29. The mystery of Dr. Cook'a strange disappearance has been explained. He has g'.ce away to aeek recuperation. Where he is rest ing is not stated, as It is desired that be shall have absolute quiet. It was said that Dr. Cook'a health Is a matter of great concern among hla friends. Prior to his sudden retire ment he was reported to be on the verge of & nervous breakdown, and it la thought that the necessity for abso lute rest may have prompted his wife to Insist on his seclusion until he shall have recuperated. Friends of Dr. Cook, who are griev ed over the turn his affairs have taken of late, undertook to explain the sit patlon In this wise: "It ia true." they say, "that the doc tor's fears have been greatly worked on by the belief of some of those with wrom he associated that there exists a plot to steal his records and even to aplrit him away in person. He even engaged two private detectives to shadow bis supposed shadowers. Mrs. Cook and those in her confidence felt that this atmosphere was not good for the doctor and arranged to have him conveyed Into seclusion. "The doctor Intended no mystery. All that aspect of his affairs has re sulted from the announcement made by Mr. "Wack. who has not seen Dr. Cook for t week, and merely acted on presumption that he was to sail on the Caronla." Mrs. Cook's whereabouts is as much of a mystery as that of her husband. She Is supposed to be Btaying some where in the city, but Just where it could not be learned. Mr. Wack, his counsel, has gone to the country for a week, also to seek seclusion. Mr. Wake, his confident, affirms that he knows where Dr. Cook Is and that he Isn't going to tell. WELLMAN DOUBTS COOK tuspicloua of What He Telia as Well as What He Doea Not Tell. Washington, Nov. 29. Walter Well man. whose preparations for a con quest of the North Pole In an airship were abandoned upon the amnounce- ment of the claims of Dr. Frederick A. Cook and Commander Robert E Peary, issued a long statement here. In which he analyzes the narratives of the two explorers, declaring that of Peary "precise, workmanlike, consist ent, credible in every particular," and denouncing that of Dr. Cook as a self-evident and even deliberate lm posture. "Cook's story Is suspicious both In what it does tell and whot it does not tell," Mr. Wellman declares. "He ia generally vague and Indefinite, but, like most men of his class, altogether too precise at the wrong place. No where does hla story ring true. It is always an approximation of reality itself. This is true of his figures, his descriptions, everything. "Those of us who have had a share in Arctic work," says Wellman. in concluding his analysis, "and who have felt anxiety that no blot of fraud should stain the proud record of effort and sacrifice, had a first hope that Dr. Cook would be able to demonstrate his good faith. This has dissolved in analysis of his own story." NEW BUTTER SWINDLE Oleo Was Refined and Made to Look Taste and Smell Like Butter. La Crosse, Wis., Nov. 29. Through the arrest and the Indictment by the federal grand jury of A. E. Graham of Janesvllle. Wis.. United States au thorities say they have disclosed the operations of an organized gang of butter swindlers who are wording the country. By means of a machine perfected by Graham, oleomargarine was refined and given the appearance, taste and smell of creamery butter. It Is de clared. The alleged fraud was detect ed only after analysis of some of the "butter." Struck by Bowling Ball, Boy la Dead Boston. Nov. 29.

INDUSTRIAL EXPANSION. The Record of New Construction of Industrie sand of the Progress Alone Two of the Southeast's Railways, For a Year An Indication of What Is Being Done In Southern Develop ment. The showing made in the fiscal year, ending Jane 30th last, of tbo new industries, additions to estab lished industries and the expendi tures for improvements of various kinds in the cities and towns along the Southern Railway and the Mobile & Ohio Railroad, is a remarkable one, when it is considered that the period covered includes the last half of the year 1908 and the first half of the present yeaf, a time when the de mand for manufactured goods of all kinds in this country was at low ebb, and capital was hard to find for new investments of any kind and in any portion of the country. Some of the figures for the industrial investments along the Southern Railway have heretofore been published. They show a total of 453 new isdustries, calling for an investment of $20,413,835, and additions to existing industries costing 7,883,930. In the same oeriod there were put under construc tion new industries to be completed ater in which $0,473,000 will be in vested. Since the close of the South ern's fiscal year there has been a steady improvement in all business conditions, manufacturers and oper ators of mines have felt warranted in renewing plans for new plants and capitalists and bankers have been more ready to supply neeaea iunas for industrial investments. 1 he new industries begun in the last half of 1909 greatly outnumber those begun in the first half of the year, so that or the first time in two years tne normal industrial advance of the Southeastern States may be said to be under way. It is confidently ex pected and all the indications show that the present year will greatly ex ceed the past in the amount of facto ry buildinff and in the investments made in all kinds of industries. That over $38,000,000 should be invested in industrial development m the peri od covered, along one line of road in the Southeast shows m the most marked manner the advantages of that section for various lines of in dustries. The.growth of industres along the ine of rhe Mobile & Ohio railroad was also marked. In the stretch of 1,000 miles of territory covered by that road there were constructed in 1908-09, ending June 30th, 55 new industries, at a cost of $2,123,C00, while additions to existing plants raised the investment $2,254,700. The figures from the two lines show duplication at four or five points. Taking out these the two lines snow an aggregate of 489 new plants cost- ng $21,149,o3o and a total invest ment in industries of $do,o09,U i 1, ncluding the amount which went into new industries under construc tion on June 30, to be completed at a later date. In general improvement during the year there were invested along the Southern Railway $69,315,280, mak ing the total amount invested in all mprovements for which statistics are gathered $103,186,051. The ag gregate amount invested along the Mobile & Ohio Railroad was $12,- 837,553. It is noteworthy that dur iag the year along the Southern $3,802,280 were spent . for new school, $l,38G,lli) for new churches, 110,370,818 for business structures, $32,212,936 for new residences. At the same' time the amount expended for public improvements was $5,558,- 391 on streets, $3,530,283 on sew ers, $3,060,204 for water works and water supply of towns and cities. These figures show in the most con clusive manner the growth of the South in wealth and ability to make needed improvements as, well as the continued expansion of its business. There were built in the twelve months along the line of the Southern Rail way, in cities, towns and villages, no less than 13,000 residences. The statistics are not available to show just what the gain has been during the year agriculturally, but that the same advance in agriculture had been made as in the various in dustries is certain. Indeed, there was ?robably a much greater advance, he statistics published by the United States department of agriculture show in the nine Southeastern States, through which the Southern Rail way and the Mobile & Ohio Railroad run, returns from the staple crops of cotton, corn, wheat, oats, potatoes, hay and tobacco in 1908 of $868, 000,000. It is well known that the greatest advance is taking place in the methods of cultivation, soil pre servation, crop diversification, and in everything which goes to the pros' perity of the farmer; and also that on Southern farms more and more conveniences and improvements of all kinds are being added, while the great value of Southern soils are be ing demonstrated as never before, There has been a steady movement of the people from the North, and the Northern European countries, to the territory 'reached by the lines. This movement is gaining all the time, as the value of the Southern farm lands become better known. In the past eiirht years th're has been invested in industries along the Southern Railway and Mobile A: Ohio Railroad the enormous amount of $158,000,000. This treat industri al expansion has come because the resources and other conditions which effect industrial development are found to the best advantage in the southeastern States.

DE ARMOND MET DEATH IN FIRE Congressman Perished With Grandson in Burning Home. DAUGHTER SAVES, MOTHER Democratic Leader Sacrificed Hla Life In Effort to Save Grandson Their Bodies Found Lying Side by Side In Ruins. Representative David DeArmAd, one of the most widely known Demo cratic congressmen, and his grandson, David A. DeArmond III., aged six years, were burned to death in a fire that destroyed the DeArmond home stead at Butler, Mo. Congressman DeArmond and his young grandson occupied one room on the south side of the building, while Mrs. DeArmond and Mrs. Hattie Clark, a married daughter, were in separate DAVID A. DE ARMOND. rooms on the opposite side of the house. Nettie Boles, twenty-six years old, a maid, had a room on the west end of the house. Mrs. Clark was awakened by a cry and on going to the door of her room saw smoke issuing from the part of the house where the congressman and "Waddie," as the grandson was called, slept. "Get me out of here!" she heard Waddie cry- "Never mind, son; I'll save you," Congressman DeArmond answered. Those were the last words either of the victims uttered. A moment later the smoke increased in volume' and Mrs. Clark was forced to flee down stairs to the telephone. Within a min ute's time she had given the alarm to the telephone office and hurried .back to the room of her mother. By this time the entire second floor was clouded with smoke and flames were leaping from the windows. Grop ing her way to Mrs. DeArmond's bed side, she literally dragged her from the room. There was no time to think of aiding those in the other part of the house. Urging her mother down the stairway, the younger woman, with difficulty, succeeded in reaching and opening the street door. Nettle Boles, the maid, it developed later, had been one of the first.to es cape. She reached the street from the rear door after the first cry of fire. She was unhurt, but too - frightened to comprehend the situation aad had fled from the scene. The financial loss is placed at f 20, 000, and included one of the best li braries in the state. The cause of the Are is not known. The two bodies were fund lying side by side. Women Die to Save Their Men. Firiug from the doorway of their home at Williamson, W. Va., on a sheriff's posse to give husband and father time to escape, Mrs. Charles Daniels and her sixteen-year-old daughter were shot to death near Devon. The tragedy grew out of a family feud between the Christians and Dan iels on the borders of Kentucky and West Virginia. The Christians live in Mingo county, West Virginia, and the Daniels in Pike county, Kentucky. About three weeks ago George Christian ventured to the Kentucky side and was killed by Jim Daniels, The men were brothers-in-law and had formerly been allies. . The Chritsians swore out warrants for Jim Daniels and his brother Charles and led a posse of Pike countv officer3 to serve them at the Daniels home. When the officers had approarhe;! within a few feet of the house. Mrs. Daniels and her daughter opened fire with rifles, one of the posse receiving a bullet in the arm. Mrs. Daniels was first shot down and her daughter stood over her and fired upon the posse until she dropped dead across her mother, pierced by three bullets. By their self-sacrifice the mother and daughter had enabled the men to esrapa AM Customs Frauds to Be Pressed.

That amount, however, he said, af fected no other evasions of duty and in no wise figured as to any other matters, ana tne government pur posed to recover much more mosey because of frauds the trust had com mitted.

The St- Paul mine, at Cherry, I1L, In, which " 310 coal miners were en tombed by fire and explosion on Sat urday. Nov. 13, has been sealed up. The fire was gaining such headway that it was thought best to cut off all air. The shaft -will probably remain closed for several weeks. The bodies of nearly 200 men are entombed within its depths. The con crete wall has hermetically closed the fire-seared mouth of the mine Hope of ever recovering the bodies of these victims has vanished In the face of the step taken by the mine officials. The sealing of the mine was the last recourse. ;". - Washington's Tent Sold. Miss Mary Cnstis Lee, of Rich mond, Va, the only daughter of Gen eral Robert E.

STAI1D-PATTERS PROVOKED Congressman Mann - Will Introduce a Number of Bills In the House That Is Expected to Open Up the Tariff Argument Payne Peoh-Poohe Revision Talk. Washington, Nov. 29. Stand-pat Re publicans do not like the clamor from various quarters for another revision of the tariff by the present congress. They are very much provoked over the situation, and are particularly In censed with Representatives James R. Mann, of Illinois, who has announced a. purpose to introduce a series of bills In the houe that is expected to open up the tariff for serious discussion at the coming session. Mr. Mann's promi nence and his affiliation with the Can non organization make his course something to be reckoned with. Representative Sereno E. Payne, of New York, chairman of the committee on-ways and means, who has Just come to town, pooh-poohs the idea that the hous may. be induced this winter to revise the tariff in whole as demanded by Republican insurgents in the west or in part as proposed by Representative Mann. Mann Has Bills Ready. It is a pretty prevalent belief In Washington that the Mann bills, re lating in the main to the trade rela tions of the United States with Can ada, will offer an excuse for agitation REPRESENTATIVE MANN. by Republicans such as Senator Cum mln8, of Iowa, who insists that the party failed to conform to its platform pledges of 1908 when it placed the Payne tariff act before the president for approval. One of Mr. Mann's bills provides for a change in the wood pulp print paper schedule of the new tariff law; another exempts Canadian products from the application of the maximum tariff, and a third provides for postponing the date upon which the maximum tariff shall become ef fective. Fear Trade War With Canada. Representative Mann announced that he was prompted to Introduce the tills because of a fear that if the tariff law was enforced in its present form a disastrous trade war with Can ada would result This fear is said to be shared with some administration leaders. Whether the Mann bills will have the support of-the administration has not been disclosed. Nor is it known what attitude Speaker Cannon will assume. toward the measures. In addition to the significance attached to the purpose of Mr. . Mann's move to revise the tariff by reason of the fact that he is one of the chief lieutenants of Speaker Cannon, Mr. Mann has been a frequent caller at the White Hopse lately, and it is understood that he acquainted the president with his determination to introduce bills for a partial revision of the tariff. The administration, it is known, is very much concerned over the present trade relations of this country with Canada, and is apprehensive that com mercial warfare with Canada would be more hurtful In its influence upon. American trade jtban would be the minimum rates to Canadian products, as well as to the products of other countries, while certain senators and representatives contend that through the Instrumentality of the maximum and minimum tariff they reviewed the rates upward instead of downward.

One of the Host Wonderful ' uresoit Record. i Our little dauirfater had a ease of"tv- phoid fever when she was three years ! old. It settled ia her right leg, the leg sweffinor on iuat above tbe - knee ana . burst, and pieces of bone came out. We had three or four doctors attend her, but they could do her do good at alL They said there would have to be an opera tion, and we took her to Darlington, 8. C, and had an operation performed. We waited about four months, and too ner to Charleston Hospital for another oper ation, and kept her there three months. Dr. Simmons, the head surgeon there, said the leg would have to be amputated, but I would not eon sent to it. I brought her back to Darlington, and bad another o Deration performed there, l waitea four or Ave months, and took her to the ' Memorial Hospital in Richmond, Va., ; and had an o Deration performed. She I stayed there one month and five days, j ana came oaca apparenuy wen. in cigui. months after her return, her leg swelled j and burst again in the same place. Pieces of bone were discharged. We called in ' tbe doctor of this place. She bad a hem -orrhage from the lungs. -The doctor I said her leg would have to come off. I ; went to the drue store, srot six tottles of Mrs. Joe Person's Remedy, and com menced giving it to ber according to di-1 rections. In two weeks' time, she could : get out of bed. By the time she had j taken the six bottles tne leg was neaiea up. Up to this time, she has taken twenty-eight bottles. JJer leg seems per fectly well. She goes to school every day, and has only a slight limp. Her general health is better than it has ever been, She is still taking the Remedy, as we . . . .i t -II it. " ! wish to De sure tnac an tne poison is eradicated- from her system. Before taking your Remedy, she was in bed nearly all the time, and could scarcely walk without the aid of crutches. Now she has no need of tbem. She is now ten years of age. I consider your Remedy the finest preparation in tbe world lours sincerely. MRS. E. F. KELLY. Now of Jonesboro, N. C. Charlotte, N. C, April 23, 1908. 1 was in Lumber too, N. C, on October 8, 1907. Several of tbe ladies bad a ! great deal to tell me in regard to the ! wonderful cure of Mrs. E. F. Kelley's I .child. They saw her at a time when she i was considered at death's door, and the ! doctors had said that amputation of the ( cnua s leg was tne oniy nope ui euvius the rhild'n lifer that the cure of mv Rem edy bad effected of her case was nothing short di a miracle. 1 went to Mrs. .Kel ly's, and saw the mother, but the little girl was at school. The letter irom Mrs. Kelly given above explains the child's condition. 1 was in Lomberton again on the eighth of April, 1908, and aeain went to see Mrs. Kelly, l ne utue girl was at home, and, when she was told who 1 was, she tumped into my , arms with a delighted cry of welcome. ; "I wouldn't take a thousand dollars for seeing you, Mrs. Joe rerson, ior you saved my me. She is as neaitey a specimen of a child as can be found in the State, and a child of winning grace and : beauty. She is not even left with a limp. Mrs. Kelly told me th&t the frequent "operations" that were made on the child consisted of spliting'the child's leg to tbe bone, scraping tbe bone, and cut ting away the diseased flesh. Tbe scars that were left from these operations were fearful; the one on the outside of her leg extends to the bone for the length ol seven inches; the one on the inside for four inches. Healthy, natural skin now covers the bone, and her leg is perfectly well, and her general health perfect. Mrs. Kelly showed me a drainage tube which she had to insert by the doctor's direction every day, passing it through the decayed bone of her leg. When she would syringe a Wash through eitheropening.it would puss through the opposite opening, and Mrs. Kelly said the leg was virtually honeycombed with this decayed flesh. It would pay anyone scientifically interest ed in a subject of this importance to go to Lumberton,and see what my Remedy has donerfor Mrs. Kelly's little girl. I am, very truly, MRS.
