An Exciting Runaway.
Shortly after 1 o'clock yesterday af-
ternoon a number of persons who hap
pened to be near Mr. W. F. Hill's place
of buaineHS on South Front street,
were entertained with an exhibition ot
horsemanship that was really remark
able. The hero ot tile occasion was a
lonr lanky country boy, and he carried
off the honors with ease. The exhibi
tion began just after the boy, who was
driving a spirited mule, passed the cor
ner of Metealf and South Front. The
animal became frightened at a passing
auto and made a dash up toward Han
cock street. From one side te another
the buggy swayed but driver held to
the lines and finally succeeded in stop
ping the mule. Several tjraes it seem
ed to the spectators - that the vehicle
and its occupant would be flung againtt
some obstacle and there was a genuine
sigh of relief when the runaway was
brought to a standstill.

NEGRO BOY
ISJ01ED
Fell Overboard From Launch Near
Union Point And Sinks Be
fore Rescuers Reach Him .
. The parting of a heavy rope with
which he was towing a schooner doubt
less caused the death of Sylvester Bry
an, colored, shortly after 1 o'cloek yes
terday afternoon, when he fell over
board near Union Point and was drown
ed before assistance could reach him.
. Bryan, who was about 17 years of
age , and was employed by E. H. &
J. A. Meadows, was engaged in towing
a large schooner with a launch at the
time of the accident. He was standing
on the stern of the larnch when the haw
aer parted. This released the launch
and it sped forward "ith so much im
petus that he was thrown overboard.
He called or help ani a deck hand on
one of the boats that were tied up at
one of the docks in the vicinity jumped
overboard and swam toward him. Be
fore he reached the spot, however, the
boy had, gone down fur the last time
and although he finally' succeeded in
bringing him to the surface, life was
extinct.
The drowned boy was placed on a
raft and a physician was summoned and
worked for some1 time in attempting to
resuscitate the vict na. All attempts
however proved useless and his body
was finally taken to his home in the
northen part of the city and prepared
for burial.

Crops. Will be Unusually
Shor . ' -' '
Washington, July lltb,.--"Hot, dry
weather drought h: ve phyed some
thing akin to havoc with the crop con
ditions during the last month," declared
Prof. N. C. Murray, : cting chief of the
Crop Reporting Boarc of the Depart
ment of Agriculture i f ter the announce
ment of the July report on grain and
produce. .
"The report," sail Prof., Murray,
reflects the rather .lerious effects of
the drought during Ju le, most of im
portant crops showii g a condition at
present which indicates a yield below
that of last year and below recent av
erage yields of production.
"Feedstuff oats and bay seems to
have been the hardest hit. Lean than
two-thirds of a norm;.l crop of hay is
expected and the oat crop probably will
be more than 25 per c nt. less than last
year's crop and about 12 per cent, iew
than the average for I he last five years.
"The corn acreage is the largest ev
er recorded, but the condition of the
crop is about "7 per ce it. below the av
erage. That indicate; a production of
approximately 5 per c nt. less than last
year a record crop, t ut nearly 5 per
cent more than the av srnge production
of the corn crop on .. uly 1, however,
was critical.
"The potato crop pr mise3te be unu
sually short. The ae -e age has fallen
en off, probably on a count of unsatis
factory prices during he last year and
the condition of the c p nbw is lower
than at any time on Ji !y 1st in the last
22 years. Almost a at lsational ndvanet
in the price of potatoi j has been made
during the last mont The average
price throughout the t United States on
June , was 63.3 cents i bushel. On Ju
ly 1st it was 96.3 cents a bushel. Ordi1
sarially, the variation in that time is
only a few cent a bu. lei.
"Owing to the diffic! Ity in the set
ting out of tobacco pU its, the acreage
of tobacco has been reduced 2i pr
cent, from that of los' year. The low
condition of the crop, together with the
shortage of acreage, h .ve combined to
reduce the indications o a to'al red na
tion of 833 per cent of last year's
crop, or 77.3 per cent, of average for
the last five years.

Senator Simmons Thinks Canadian
Reciprocity Will Be Pie For
Manufacturers.
Washington, July 11. -Senator Sim
mons, of -North Carolina, opened the
debate on the Canadian reciprocity
measure. Votes on the Cummins and
Simmons amendments.
The business before the Senate when
it met was the vote on Senator Cum
mins' free flour amendment, but accord
ing to previous agreement the right of
way was given to Senator Simmons for
hia'promised speech against reciprocity
He contended that even with the re
puctions upon Canadian manufactured
droducts given in the agreement the
manufacturing industries of the United
States would still be more adequately
protected against Canadian competition
than against the competition of Great
Britain, Franco and Belgium.
Senator Simmons expressed the be
lief that the price of farm products
would be reduced under the operation
of the Canadian agreement; that the
effect would not be to benefit consum
ers, but to benefit the brewers, millers
and manufacturers or cereal products,
and that an arrangement equitable to
the farmer should include a material re
duction of duties on, manufactured pro
ducts used by the farrrer, Sen tor Sim
mons endorsed the Builcy amendment,
which proposes a part of the farmers'
free list a-; kan arm n lment to the re
ciprocity Measure.

A Well Known Man's Opinion.
The Savodine Co., Vvw Bern, N. C
We have derived so much benefit
from the use of SAVODINE. that we
wish to add our testimony to the list of
those already acquainted with its mer
its. .
My wife has been using SAVODINE for
quite a while for cold in the head, also
has found it a ready relief for CATARRH
but above all that, is the fact of its
having proved itself invaluable to us for
our baby. iA shprt time ago he waa ta
ken very aick, and as he would clap his
little hands to his ear. we decided be
must be suffering with earache, and re
alizing that something must he done at
once, we pa a tiny bit of SAVODINE In
his ear covered it with warm cotton 'and
in a few minutes he waa sleeping aa
sweetly as though be bad never had a
pain.. We cheerfully recommend Savo
dine as we will always feel grateful for
what it hasjdone for us.

President Will Let Congress Draw
Its Own Conclusion On Alas
- kan Matter.
Washington, July 12 Although many
denials have been made that govern'
ment officials intended to. permit the
Guggenheim interests to control A-Iai-kan
transportation through a monopoly
on the water .front of Controller Bay, .
in that territory, the administration
had decided to let Congress reach its
own conclusion and eery scrap of in
formation relating to the matter will
be sent to the Senate as soon us possi
ble. 4
While President Taf t and the mem
bers of his cabinet have voiced the
opinion that an investigation will show
nothing evea remotely resembling such
an attempt to favor the Guggenheim
interests, an attempt in which the names
of C. P.. Taf t, the President's brother
and former Secretary of the Interior
Ballinger have been coupled, they de-
termined that every " effort should
made to clear the situation,
At the regular session of the Cabinet
yesterday the Controller Bay affair was
discussed at length. It waa decided
that all the departments interested-
War, Agriculture, -Interior and Com
merce and Labor should be urged to
make their reports on the case as quick
ly as possible. It was stated tonight
that all the documentary , evidence in
the case probably will be in the Presi
dent's hands early next week, and that
it then will be sent immediately to the
Senate, in answer to a resolution adop- .
ted late in June, calling for all such in
formation.
A list of witnesses made up by the
committee conducting the inquiry is
said to include the foiling:

During the past few days, or rather
nights, a section of Duffy Town has
been greatly excited over the report
that one of the houses in that locality
waa haunted. The first rumor of the
act that tha house was supposed to be
the abiding place of spirits, (evil or
otherwise) occurred about two weeks
ago when a colored man who had oc
casion to pass the place late at night re
ported that be heard uncanny noise is-

negroes assembled in nearby homes

whether there waa any truth in the ru
mora. Shortly after mid night those
who were listening heard a low wail is
suing from the interior of the building.
This satisfied their curiosity and they
left posthaste without even investigat
ing, Monday night a negro man, who
was very much under the influence of
whiskey wandered into the building and
went to slrep. A -few hours later ho
waa awakened by this supp ised 'hant,'

habitation of a number of bull-La ti

ghostly sound to issue from the f -piace.
