A Quart of Water for the Bath.
The strong, if not advanced in
years, may safely take a plunge
odd bath in the morning, and by
, toweling vigorously can secure a
reaction. Others cannot, but
there is a way to make the bath a
means of exercise. The first act
is to submerge the bath towel in
cold . water, and, immediately
withdrawing'it, squeeze out of it
every drop of water : next, to rub
the whole surface of the skin,
from head to foot, with this wet
but not watery towel. This rub
bing may take two or three min
utea and involve more than ! one
hundrod motions. The next step
is to soak the'towel in the water
and squeeze the greater part of
the water out. With' this the
bod i is washed and the effete
cells and any foreign matter loos
ened by the first rubbing are re
moved. Then, having wrung the
towel it is immersed in clean wa
ter and then used for washing pur
poses until the time comes to rub
dry. This may be chiefly done
with the hands and finished with
a soft or hard towel, according to
the season. If one is in a hurry,
thia bath can be taken in five
minutes, and two quarts of water
are sufficient, or even one quart
economized, for the action. Dr.
J. M. Buckley.
Not a Stogie Lynching in State During Year.
Raleigh, Deo. 22. North Caro
lina has made a fine record thiB
year by not having a lynching.
Naturally Governor Kitchin is
very much gratified at this. In
fact the number of lynchings dur
ing the past few years in this
State have been smaller than in
other States of the South, and
there have never been here any of
tbe atrocities which have marked
lynchings in some States, such as
burning at the stake, cutting the
victims to pieces, etc.

ASHEVILLE WITHOUT WATER.
Storm-Tossed Tree Dreaks The Big Main
Of The Gravity Line.
Asheville, Dec. 26. Drinking
water in Asheville tonight is at a
premium, rne city s supply has
been off since 9 o'clock this morn
ing with no prospects of any water
through the gravity line before
near daybreak tomorrow. "Wa
ter for breakfast is the best that
can be promised," was the state
ment of a city official this even
The trouble with the city's
gravity line is at what is known
as rock cut," a distance of prob
ably fifteen miles in the moun
tains. Daring the storm and
high winds of last night or early
this morning a tree was hurled
across the 16-inch main and broke
it. The wind and storm also put
the private telephone line to the
intake out of commission. The
telegraph and hues to Black
Mountain were likewise down for
a time and the officials here were
not aware of the looation of the
trouble until 4:30 o'clock this
afternoon, although heroic efforts
had been made all dy t fifid the
trouble, at first it being supposed
that there waB an ice jam at thb
When the supply began tanning
low with no news from the intake
line walkers were started from
here walking the line through the
mountains. It was bitter cold
and progress was slow. The
trouble was reached during the
afternoon by one of these walkers
and then half-frozen the line
walker made hit way to the near
e&t telephone and sent in the in
formation. The Southern Rail
way came to the assistance of the
city, tendered a special train to
run to Swannanoa with men and
supplies and in thirty minutes
after the trouble was located and
reported the special pulled out.
It is nearly three miles from Swan
nanoa to rock cut, however, and
of that distance fully a mile must
be walked, the men packing their
material. It will probably re
quire three or four hours to re
pair the break and then it will
take another fcur hours for the
water to come from the intake in
to the city.
E ;ery precaution against fire is
being taken tonight. The city is
reserying an emergency supply of
three hundred gallons but it is
realized that if a bad fire should
occur with a strong wind the
situation would become desperate.
WARDLAW SISTERS IN TOMBS.
Republican State Chairman Has Been Slat
ed for the District Attorneyship.!
Greensboro, Dec. 28 l.i recent
weeks the Washington correepon
dents of the State press have
made several references to the al
leged promise by President Taft
that ex-Judge Spencer B. Adame,
Republican State .. chairman,
t "m rT .
snouia succeea A. m. uoiun as
United States district .attorney
for the western district of North
Carolina. The frequency of the
statement has caused some people
to believe there existed some
where a doubt as to whether
Judge Adams is really slated for
the position or whether he would
be confirmed by the Senate in the
event of appointment. The Ob
server correspondent has been un
able to get any statement from
Judge Adams concernipg the mat
ter, the chairman saying it is not
a subject for him to discuss.
From a source that is entirely
trustworthy it is learned that the
President not only promised
Judge Adams last winter that he
should have the appointment, but
the promise has been renewed re
cently, and but for the press of
other matters, it is understood
that the nomination probably
would have been sent to the sen
ate before the adjournment of
Congress for the Christmas holi
days. It is believed the appoint
ment will be announced soon af
ter the holiday recess. This in
spite of the fact that District At
torney Holton's terms does not

Arraignment of Mrs. Caroline Martin and
Mrs. Mary Snead, tor Murder.
New York, Deo. 24 -Gruesome
phraseology in the indictments
against the Wardlaw sisters, char
ged with the murder of Ocey
Snead was made public today in
the arraignment of Mrs. Caroline
W. Martin, the victim's mother,
and Mrs. Mary Snead, an aunt,
in the Tombs prison court, when
they were recommitted to the
Tombs for thirty days, pending
extradition to New Jersey,
In the indictments against both
it is charged that they did ''take
the said Ocey Snead with both
their hands and caBt, throw fhd
push said Ocey Snead into a cer
tain bath tub where there was a
great quantity of water, and by
means of which said Ocey Snead
was choked, suffocated and drown
ed." Another count charges that Mrs.
Martin and Mrs. Snead did incite
procure; abet, counsel, hire and
command Virginia Wardlaw to
do and commit murder upon the
body of Ocey Snead. As hereto
fore told, the grand jury, as an
additional precaution charges all
three with aiding and abetting
the victim's suicide.
Further complications in the
maze of contradictory evidence
which investigation of- the case
was unearthed developed today
witb the discovery of additional
documents. They were found by
the Brooklyn police in the Henry
street house once occupied l the
Wardlaws and imbued the detec
tives with the belief that the en
tire family had made a suicide
pact which was only partly ful
filled by the death of Ocey Lnead.
The alleged pact is said to be
revealed by letters signed by Ocey
Snead, her husband, Fletcher;
Mts. Martin, her mother and her
two auntB, Mrs. Mary Snead and
Miss Virginia Wardlaw. Accom
panying them were several blank
forms of power of attorney, all
signed by Ocey Snead. The doc
uments have been turned over to
the New Jersey authorities.
