General Labor Strike Threatens

London, Aug. 15. There appears now
little hope of averting a great railroad
strike which probably will be accompa
nied by a General labor revolt that will
have tremendout effect on the trade
of the United Kingdom, i ; 3l
! At a meeting held in London yeater'
day by the managers of all the railroads
, having terminals here, it was resolved
that the time bad arrived to resist the
men' encroachments. The managers
contend that the men by striking v. ill
violate the agreement arrived at after
the railway troubles of 1907, under
' which ad disputes were to be referred
to conciliation boards or an arbitrator.
ThiB agreement; they sav, was to run
until 1914.-- ' I
Yesterday meeting was unanimous
'that the only way to terminate constant
dislocation of , busic ess -was to take a
firm stand and refuse all concessions to
the men, . One manager in the inter
View expressed the fear that there will
be grave troubles on all the railway
systems - before the present week is

May Have Been a Klnston Man
While passing through a ewamp on
Mr, W. C. Willett's farm a few months
ago a negjQ man wno was in the em
ploy of Mr. Willett ran across a human
skeleton. He informed bis employer of
this gruesome And and the bones were
taken up and all but tbe skull were
buried, this was kept by Mr. Willett
and can now be seen at his office.
Rdceot investigations have led the
public to believe, that the bones were
those of a Mr. Patterson, of Kinston,
who was drowned at ' that place about
five years ago. At the time ot tho ac
cident the river was unusually high,
and although every effort was made to
locate the victim's body, it was never
recovered, but it is supposed that the
body drifted down the river with the
strong current and Iqdged in some
swamp or was buried beneath a wind
bank. There are several of the teth
remaining in the skull, but unfortunate

English Method of Dealing
Supplies by the Week.
In the matter of small savings and
watchfulness of expenditure tbe Eng
lish housewife is abead. For example,
the English housekeeper deals out to
her servants tbe week's 'allowance of
sugar, rice, flour, coffee and all other
household provisions that are kept In
quantity, and requires an account of
It all to be rendered, tbe thing having
been brought to so: floe a point that
she knows the exact amount of each
article requisite for her family, allow
ing so much to each individual ana
that quantity being sufficient as she
knows by experience, two onnces of
tea, for instance, being regarded as a
week's supply for each single individ
ual, one half pound of sugar, three and
one-half pounds of meat for a woman
and five and one-fourth for a man
facts which the housekeeper probably
learned from her mother before ber
knowing, moreover,, the, greater vari
ety of tbe simpler kinds reqmred.
' AH' of these stores she sets down In
her housekeeping book as she gives
tbem out, and she does not fall on the
next dispensing day to cousult ' her
dates and If anything be left over in
tbe cook's hands not accounted for to
subtract that from the amount to be
newly Issued. And In England aerv
ants expect this. So far from being
ludlirnaut with it they would feel as
