After borrowing a shotgun from merchant at Mars Hill, Archie Linley, 24 years of age, of Anderson, S, Cl went to his room and blew out his brains at 2:30 o’clock Saturday after noon. Linley arrived at Mars Hill, 18 miles from Ashville, and told various people there that he had come to spend the summer. He engaged a room at the residence of Mrs. Kate Woodrow, who was shopping in the town at the time of the tragedy. The deceased was a ministerial stu dent, and it is thought that his mind had been affected by close study. He is survived by a mother, a sister and two brothers. A New Mill. A fish fry, Brunswick stew, and a general good time. These past few warm days brought the boys out in great shape. There was a simultaneous agreement among them to meet at Scotts mill Friday eve. the 12tb» and have a good time- Joe Vincent, W. L. Crawford, W. E. Ham, R. H. Tyson, Ben Warren, W. W. Corbett, John Holmes, F.L. White, Charlie Dillard, Arthur White, Joe Kenyon, S. G. Morgan, Shakespear Harris, P. Nelson, Murray Ferguson, Will Satterfield, J. W. Warren, Roy Thompson, Frank Warren, Dr. J. M. Wells, Fred Boss, J. Edwin White, Felix Graves and J.O. Foy,were among those present, Joe Kenyon was chief cook, and W. E Ham was general manager. It was a great old time, one that the Fried fish, fresh from the water, old North , Car olina com bread, Brunswick stew, Budweiser, and Schlitz constituted a portion of the refreshments served on the occassion. Some little incident in reference to the gay time the boys had would not be entirely out of place. It was no ticed that Murray Ferguson kept on eating during the entire -«vening, ex cept when he would stop to take a soft drink from a bottle, Murray ex plained by saying he had been busy and had not eaten anything since morning. Now there was a young roan usua- ly quiet and clevar who got to playing with the boys and split his shirt badly, but he asked us not to tell his name, and so for the present we will with hold it He says the next time he plays leap frog, he is going to wear suspenders and a vest. It was down on the programme that F. L. White was to shoot an orange with a bow and ar row from the heel of Joe Kenyon while he stood on his head, but Joe refused to stand, he said his head was lighter than his heels and he could not keep it down. Capt. Ham kept close to the frying pan in which the fish were fried, he explained the fact of his seeming to eat a good deal upon the g^unds that the cook should taste the food often in order to have it pro perly seasoned. It was the purpose to have the fish frv at Scott-Cates Mill, but owing to a pressing invitation from thal genial gentlemen Felix Graves it was held higher up the mill race at his farm, beneath the shadows of some giant Oaks. It was a great old time and all who went out, enjoyed it.

President Taft recently made statement before the Philadelphia Medical Club which would indicate that the army surgeons believe typhoid vaccine has robbed the dreaded fever of most of its terrors. The statement follows: Now we have a division of 1,800 men in Texas and California. They have been there for two months living under canvas and in a country soaked with rain. I need not recall the dreadful record of sickness from typhoid fever in the camps at Chickamauga. Of the volunteer r^ments mobilized during the Spanish-American war, 90 per cent (about 16 per cent ot the men) became infected with tjrphoid fever witiiin eight weeks after the date of mobilization. Today, two months after mobilization, with the modern health regulations and by the use cf vaccine a^nst typhoid, not one case of typhoid has appeared in the entire force, except that of one teamster who was not vaccinated. What a contrast there is between this report and the reports returned from Chickamauga, Tampa and J ackson viUe at the time of the Spanish war. With the epidemics of fever which have characterized other wars eradi cated, the terror of war is banished Tennessee Assembly Will Hold Indefinitely. At a caucus of representatives of the ] majority in the general assembly of Tennessee at Nashville it was resolved to prolong the session indefinitely. Six or seven members will show up in each house each day, with one of the r^fu- lars presiding in each house. The bal ance of the members, it is said, will re turn to their homes. In the meantime the comptroller and treasurer will con tinue to decline to pay out any moneys to state institutions or employes not expressly provided far by statute- Wanted.

C. that time regarded as a fashionable disease, confined, ahnost exclusively to well to do people. It was that class that could afford the finely groi^id bleached flour and this was why we suspicioned the roller process flour as the responsible cause. Now comes Dr. EldredM. Conner who in an arti cle in the London Medical Chronicle says: “The first epidemic of appendicitis, if such a term is applicable, was to a la^e extent contemporaneous in America with the preparation of flour in the mills by means of the big steel irollers of a fluted type. Now these rollers quickly wear down and frequen tly have to be replaced. What then, aaifg Dr. Comer, becomes of the ma terial which comes off the roller worn out in the process? Obviously it must be in the flour of our bread. That is to say, a considerable proportion of the flour thus made contains minute particles of steel, which when consum ed stay sufficiently long in the appen dix to create irritation, and in some instances to set up appendicitis.” (Perhaps the particles of steel from the rollers may have had an excenuat- ing cause, but iu the entire absence of it we believe that the roller process flour is of ils self capable -of produc ing the disease. One who has studied at all the process of digestion can readily realize how a pasty, rather inert mass, such as roller process flour, takm into the stomach for a long pCTiod, would enventually become an irritant, and especially so when it has been so largely adulterated with bleaching preperations such as barrites.
