Chicago, July 19. The Amer

warning all railroad men at the
stock yards to desist from work,
seemed to have little effect on

stated that if a dog is bitten by a snake a

George Mills, who on circumstantial
evidence stands accused of the recent
atrocious murder of his niece, Miss Iana
Wimberly, near Apex, Wake county,
has for several weeks been in jail at
Goldsboro for safe keeping. He was
taken up to Raleigh on Wednesday the
19th inst., for preliminary examination.
It was held the next day. There were
some sensational and revolting develop
ments. The girl, 17 years of age was en
ciente and since these facts were devel
oped it is generally believed that while
Mills killed the girl it was planned and
caused by members of her own family, ft
is tcougnt Dy some ot trie neignbors that
one ot her nearest relatives is tne father
of tbe child. It is understood that at the
final trial, September 24th, much evi

Like some broken vessel stranded
On the shore.

To the grave;
Not a hand stretched out to aid her
None to save.

And too well;
And the secret of her sorrow
Who can tell?
Who can know the weary heartache
Of her lite?
Who conceive its utter d:irkne-s
Or its strife?
We only know that all is over;
She lies there
With tbe purple sea weed clinging'
la her hair.
Livid features blue eyes stariug
Poor dumb lips that cannot tell us
Why she died.
None may ever know her story
Or her name;
She has thrown aside the shadow
Of her shame.
She has dared to face her Maker
His alone the right to judge her;
Leave her there.

that he is making Democratic speeches,

Mr. J . S. Basnight proprietor of tlic
New Berne Lumber mill, upon viewing
it stated that an occurrence similar to this
came under his observation when a boy.
Tnat a bull dog owned by his people
would kill any snake he saw and had
been bitten more than once and when he
sickened and died, to test the cor
rectness of this same story the dog was
cut into, aud two of the snakes (t) were
found attached to his liver, similar to this
one, only smaller probably a little over
a foot. It was such a remarkable thing
that it vividly impressed itself upon iir.
Presiding Elder F. D. Swindell tells us
that a brother of his had a dog which
was bitten by a snake and having heard
the statement spoken of examination was
made with the same result, one of the
reptiles b.-ing found similarly existing.
Dr. Frank Duffy was sought to give an
explanation and viewing the specimen he
accepted all the facts attending its finding
but did not believe that the bite of the
snake had anything to do with its de
velopment. He identified it a specimen of
tluc Eustrongylus gigas or strongylus
gigas as it seems to be more frequently
written. It is a parasite to which dogs
are subject, and is of the speqies of nema
tode worms. It is introduced into the
dog's system in some way, when in a larval
state and then develops and becomes the
parasite. It has a common name, the
large kidney worm. Medical works
allude to it and speak of its size as vary
ing from one or two inches up to about
three feet. This specimen seems to be an
exceptionally large one.
It seems that any dog and some other
animals are liable to be infested by it,
and the finding of it in snake bitten dogs
is merely a co-incidence.
We quote the following from a medical
"This worm, recorded in the catalogue
of human parasites is doubtful as such.
Pertaining to the same familv a Anchy
lostomum, as its coimiiMii name indici.es
its usual habitation is the kidney. It i I
the largest of the nematodes, and is a
long cylindrical red worm, slightly taper
ing and blunt at the ends. The
mouth is enclosed by six rounded labial
papillae The feraa'e commonly ranges
from one to three feet in length and from
a fourth to nearly half an iuch in thick-,
ness. The male ranges from six inches
to a foot in length and from one to three
lines (a lino is the twelfth of an inch in
"Tbe mature parasite is common in
many fish eating mammals, from which it
is interred that fishes arc the intermediate
host for the juvenile condition of tbe
worm It is Irequcnt in th'' wolf, dog,
mink, weasel, raccoon, otter and seal. It
also occurs in the hog and is reported to
have occurred in the horse, ox and man
Usually it is solitary aud occupies one of
thej kidneys coileJ upon itself.
The worm is occasiona'ly found
in other positions, as the alxlominal cav
ity, the intestine, liver and lungs, but per
haps in most of these cases has been de
rived from its usual hal itation.
''The cases on record of the occurrence
of this formidable parasite in man are of
yerv early date and are mostly doubtful
as to the authentic nature of the worm,
and are all unsatisfactory as t the atten

Recognition of a New Berne Lady's
Our talented young ladv artist, Miss
Annie Berry, who has been presiding
over the Art Department of Due West
Female college, Due West. S. C, received
quite a complimentary notice in the Char
leston News and Courier, based upon the
art exhibit of the school at the commence
ment. Appreciative mention was made
of the good work of the pupils, the pro
gress made, and the methods used. It
was stated that ' There has never been
more independent and original work done
in the art department th'in during the last
year." This is a good deal to say as to
results. Of Miss Berry herself the fol
lowing mention is made:
The art display of the Female College
is always one ot the most attractive lea
turcs of the closing week of our schools,
Every year hundreds ot visitors examine
the display and criticise or admire to
their hearts' content Miss Annie A.
Berry, of New Berne. N. O, has taught

and has had the very highest advantages
and training, having studied in a South

under a private teacher and in the Art
league of New York. She is not only a
gifted artist, but is a most enthusiastic
and inspiring teacher.

at home for the vacation, has determined
to iiive home art students the benefit of
her knowledge. She is now getting up

The accident occurred while the others
at work there had stopped for dinner.
The young man was heard by a colored
man to cry out but was not reached in
time to be saved. It is said he hud been
troubled somewhat with dizzy spells and
he may have been attacked by one. A
wound about his head was probably re

Mr. Dawson had but recently returned
from Trinity school, Chocowinity. He
was 17 years of age, was the oldest sju of
his father and a young man ol promise.
The faueral of Mr. Cicero Dawson of
Jasper, was largely attended. A number
of the New Berne people went out to it.
It appears that the cause of Mr. Dawson's
drowning was an attack of cramp while

Mr. Rumple's Drowning.
The circumstances ath uding Mr. J. W,
Rumple's drowning at Port Republic are
that he went fishing on the afternoon of
the 14th inst., and a violent storm came
up. It was supposed he had taken refuge
at a neighbor's, but next morning (Sun
day) it being found that he had not been
there, search was instituted and his boat
found within about fifty vards ol the
house where it had drifted, just in the
condition he had ben using it.
Further searching resulted in the dis
covery ot the end ol his fishing rod pro
jecting upward out in the stream The
rod was pulled up and with it came the
body of Mr. Rumple, his hands tightly
clasped around it.
As he was a strong man and an expert
iwimmer, it wasjudged that he was struck
by lightning aud by the stroke rendered
at least powerless to make any effort for
The physicans who examined the body
say the indications are that the stroke of
lightning was the cause of death, that he
was dead when he fell in the water. All
the indications point this way.
