INCREASE CHEESE INDUSTRY
U. S. Dept. of Agriculture Adds An
other Man to Devote Time to Work
in North Carolina.
Washington. The department of
agriculture has just arranged to em
ploy an additional man to boost the
development of -the cheese industry in
the North Carolina mountains, and he
will go to work in a few days. One
man already is devoting his entire
time to interesting the farmers in this
work. This will enable the govern
ment to take care of an industry that
has expanded with almost incredible
speed since it started two year3 ago.
A government expert declared that
the che8se made in North Carolina is
equivalent to that which come3 from
Wisconsin and New York, the princi
pal cheese states of the nation, and
the department looks to the North
Carolina mountain farmers to find a
prosperity from this industry through
out the section adapted to the work.
They are finding an eager market
eince the quality of their product is
good, and are far from having to leave
the state to find an outlet for their
goods. They make the regular Ameri
can cheese which has been coming
from Wisconsin and New York.
That the industry proved profitable
from the beginning, appealing to the
farmers because of the good prices
available, is indicated by the fact that
up to date six additional plant3 have
been erected or are now being erected.
Shares are sold to the people in the
communities and they invest such
amounts as they haye available. The
plants at the present time are con
fined chiefly to the counties of Ashe.
Watauga and Yancey. Over in Ten
nessee plants have ben built in Se
vier and Johnson counties, while plans
have just been made for starting tho
industry in the mountains of Virginia.
Not only are additional pl?nts be
ing installed, bringing the total up to
nine, but the three plants which were
established and in operation last year,
on which the government made a glow
ing report, have been practically dou
bled. They will be run the entire year

COULD NOT CORNER MIKE
Dead Body of Fugitive Fouid.
Marion. Virgil Butt, the white man
who ran amuck here Sunday, one
.week ago, and shot five people, was
found dead in the woods, less than a
mile from the scene of the shooting.
J. M. Ilouck, about noon, attracted
by vultures, began a search for the
object of their prey and found Butt's
body in a decaying condition. By his
side lay a 22-calibre Remington rifle,
a razor, pocket knife, pencil 8nd a
small bottle of strychnine t?.Vfq.
The direct cause of his death i3 un
known, but is suposed to hae result
ed from poisoning.
Bloodhounds and officers followed
what was thought to be Butt's trail
for many miles and it was thought he
was still a fugitive from Justice until
his body was found and identified to
day. The body was buried by the sher
iff without a coroner's inquest.
Mr. Flaherty Ready With Explanation
for Failure to Keep Awake
One Saturday evening Airs. Flaherty
said to her husband, who is a success
ful contractor: "Mike, Father Burke
is to preach to morrow at St. Patrick's
church, and you've often told ine you
wanted to hear him."
"Yes, Jane, I do want to hear him.
They say he's a fine speaker."
'But, for pity's sake, Mike, if you
do come with nie, keep awake! You
know you're always falling asleep dur
ing the sermons."
"I'll do my best, Jane."
Next day, when Father Burke began
to preach, Mike watched' him for Ave
minutes, and lime dropped off to Bleep.
When they were back home Jane gave
Mike a tongue lashing.
"Well, Jane," said Mike in self-defense,
"it's just this way. When I
engage a new hand I watch him to see
If he's on the job. As soon as I find
he's efficient and lmrd-working I don't
bother about him any more. Now, as
soon as Father Burke began I saw he
was right on to his job, and so I didn't
worry about him. And then, in spite
of myself, I let go." Everybody's
N EVENT of interest throughout

most impressive features that an occurrence of
similar character has ever called forth in the
South. Brilliant orators from several states will

The well-known sculptor, Frederick C. Ilib
bard of Chicago is responsible for the exquisite
work and desigu of the Shiloh memorial, and his
attractive atelier In the Northern city presents a
busy scene at the present time, for the artist has
promised the Daughters that by the time the
Great White Spirit takes up the peace pipe to
breathe Indian summer's smoke across the purple
hilltops of Tennessee the marbles will be packed
and ready for shipment.
The monument design, acknowledged as one of
, the most striking ever conceived by this artist,
comprises three groups upon a base of artistic
proportions. It is fashioned of Mt. Airy granite
from the famous quarries of North Carolina. The
panel heads are done in alto-relievo. The heroic
figures comprising the central group are nine
feet high and represent Victory, defeated by
Death. The female figure of Victory is seen re
linquishing a laurel wreath to one of the two
cowled figures of the Grim Iteaper. Confederate
soldiers, a private, an officer, artilleryman and In
fantryman, make up the end and lesser groups.
The story of the beginning of the movement to
erect the Shiloh monument is interesting and in
spiring. It was with n little group of Hardin county
women, In Tennessee, that the Idea originated.
The lending spirit of the enterprise was Mrs. Cor
nelia Broyles Irwin, wife of Capt. James W. Irwin
of Savannah, who commanded a company of Har-
din county boys at the battle of Shiloh. It was
largely due to Mrs. Irwin's enthusiasm that the
movement was successfully launched. The lirst
published article regarding the project of build
ing a monument on Shiloh battlefield to the sol
diers of the Southern army was written by this
lady and appeared In the Confederate Veteran In
1902. The late Sumner A. Cunningham, editor
of the Veteran, was, one of the most interested
workers for the enterprise, and wrote numberless
articles dealing with the subject. The first con
tributor to the Shiloh monument fund was Mr.
Jacobus S. Jones of Washington, D. C.
At a national meeting of the U. D. C. held at
Gulfport, Miss., in 1900, a Shiloh monument direc
tor for each Southern state whs appointed, and
Mrs. A. Ii. White of Paris, Tenn.. was made di
rector general of the entire work. This office
Mrs. White has held ever since. The successful
culmination of the work is largely due to her
enthusiasm and fine management.
A sister work of the Shiloh memorial was the
erection by the U. D. C. of the beautiful Con
federate monument In Arlington cemetery a few
years aeo. The cost of both memorials was the
same, $r0,000. The unveiling of the Arlington
monument took thousands of interested specta
tors to the national cemetery from all parts of the
country. The address of President Taft. on this
occasion, attracted the attention of the whole
country for its notably generous spirit and sym
pathettc understanding of the attitude of ihe
Southern people toward their beloved dead who
fell in thrstorm of the sixties.
Shiloh Military park, which takes in about ten
acres of the battlefield, lies Just off Pittsburg
Landing on the Tennessee river and only a few
miles from Corinth. Miss. The cemetery con
tains more than a hundred handsome monuments
erected by Northern states to the Federal dead.
The states of Illinois, Wisconsin. Iowa, Pennsyl
vania and Indiana have spent more than $20,000
on monuments and markers. 'Weil-kept gravel
walks wind In and out among the glistening
marbles. The roads stretching to Corinth are
the same over which the Confederates traveled
after the battle of the second day when the
forces were outnumbered by those of Buell and
Points of particular interest in Shiloh National
Military park are the portion known as the
"Hornet's Nest," where the conflict waged
fiercest; the famous "Bloody Pond." whose wa
ters were crimson with the blood of the Con
federates; the noted spring which quenched the
thirst of the wounded; the site of the little log
meeting house, whose sides were spattered with
blood and which gave Its name to the battle that
raged around It. And then there are the many
beautiful monuments erected by the government.
The Confederate dead lie in six trenches, the
only markers being a cannon ball at head and
fool. Only three monuments in the entire park
are to Southerners: One to the memory of the
Second Tennessee (Bale's) regiment, and monu
ments built by the U. I. C. of Arkansas and Ala
bama. Thp government erected a monument at
the spot where Gen. Albert Sidney Johnston died
as a marker for a historic snot. Nearby Is the

COMMANDING THE CONFEDERATE ARMY,
DIED HERE AT 2:30 O'CLOCK P. M..
APRIL 6, 1S32.
Mocking birds and thrushes sing today over the
green acres that once presented a scene of devas
tation and death. It is difficult to realize that
here on this stretch of meadowland, where nod
the goldenrod and 'wild hyacinth, once was piled
high with the bodies of the dead. However, In
the minds of many who attend the unveiling of
the memorial to the heroes in gray, the white
haired survivors of that conflict, only too vividly
will the picture come back. But then, "to live In
hearts we leave behind is not to die."
Rare Old Stuff From South
A rare collection of archeological objects from
the department of lea. Peru, was recently pur
chased by Mr. A. J. Juilliard and presented to the
American museum. This collection represents the
results of numerous expeditions during the last
nine years by Mr. Manuel Montero to the desert
regions to ihe south and west of lea. These visits
to the prehistoric burial grounds were his vaca
tions, and every object in the collection was exca
vated by him. The most notable objects are nine
large shawllike garments covered with conven
tional figures in embroidery. The beautiful color
schemes seen in these textiles make them a joy
lo the artist, and they will doubtless be copied eag
erly by the u timorous art students who make con
stant use of the. American museum collections.
Besides these shawllike garments there are many
smaller pieces of rloth which are highly orna
mented. The metal work of these ancient people is rep
resented by objects in silver and copper. There
are several pairs of large silver ear plugs, orna
mented with embossed figures of birds, silver
tweezers also ornamented with raised bird figures,
and several 'Iuim', pins with finely executed figures
of birds an. I pumas on the upper ends. The other ob
jects in tin- collectlou consist principally of the
women's workbaskets, Villi spindles and various
colored threads, a loom with cloUi In process of
weaving, feather ornaments, slings, nmsicai ihsivu
ments and a few choice pieces of pottery.
