Secretary Houston, of the department
of agriculture, has detailed Dr. A

The action of the department ii

garded as the most advanced step yet
taken by the administration in the
hope of reducing the cost of living in
this country. The department recent

packers are preparing to increase
their facilities in South American
countries in anticipation of increased
trade, but whether or not this prom

According to Dr. Melvin the situa

this country is serious. He says that
Americans are the greatest consum

According to Dr. Melvin the aver

pounds a year for each person, of

"One of the reasons of the lack

New York, July 22. A small
nzettge-shaped zinc case wrapped in
paper and addressed to Andrew Car
negie, care of the Carnegie corpora
tion, was delivered to the offices of
the corporation at 576 Fifth avenue
by mail this afternoon. The thing is
believed to be a bomb, but whether
it is or not won't be determined for
certain until tomorrow morning when
Owen Grogan, the bomb expert of the
bureau of combustibles, opens it.
William A. Clark, one of the cor

paackage with the rest of the nail and
took off the wrapper. After looking
over the strange looking contraption
inside he decided it looked suspicious.
Mr. Clark called Charles Roberts,

AFFAIR CREATES EXCITEMENT
Warrants Served On All The Parties
And Hearing Will Take Place
Albert E. Wadsworth, a well known
Craven county farmer who lives in
No. 9 Township, was roughly handled
when he became engaged Monday
afternoon in an altercation with Luther
J. and Jesse Davis, sons of County
Commissioner E. Z. R. Davis of Cove
City. Warrants have been issued
for all three and they will be given a
preliminary hearing before Justice of
the Pecae S. R. Street next Saturday
morning at 11 o'clock.
Owing to the prominence of the
parties implicated in the affair it
Clark took 1 caused a great deal of excitement and
which the alleged yesterday was one of the main topics
of discussion in the section of the
between Mr. Wadsworth and the Messrs
Davis. Luther J. Davis is the road
supervisor in No. 9 Township and at
the July meeting of the Board of
Commissioners 4r. Wadsworth ap
peared before jOiem and criticized
the work of Sujfcrvisor Davis.
According to all accounts pf the aff
air heard yesterday in this city Mr.
Wadsworth drove by the Davis home
Monday afternoon and was accosted
by Luther J. Davis and asked for an
explanation of the remarks made about
Davis before the Board of Commis
sioners. Mr. Wadsworth repeated the
things that he had said before the Com
missioners, and, if anything, made them
stronger and more offensive. Pretty
soon the three were in a scuffle
and the two brothers naturally got
somewhat the better of their adver-

Morchead City, July 23. During
the past month the Atlantic Hotel
Men-head City, has greatly strengthen
ed its past record as being the leading
sea shore resort of the South. Crowds
are still coming from everywhere to
share the refreshing breezes that come
from off the old Atlantic.
With the present number of something
like four hundred and the large number
already booked for August and the rest
of the season, the management of this
old house is greatly pleased with the
prospect of pulling off the busiest
season that has been in the history of
i he hotel.
Great enthusiasm is being manifes
ted in the exercises of the many sports
which are here to engage in. such at,
fishing, bathing, Iwat'ng, dancing and
the like; and the careful attention
and keen interest tendered each and
every one at this place, make it at
I leasant as home itself. While the sea
son began early here this year it will
not be necessary to close early, but will
probably be the lateit to close. So
parties wishing to follow the crows
and take a few weeks off with the hook
and line will strike the seaton in full
bloom if they come along now.
Fishing is good, and all who like thit
kind of spert will certainly be pleased
with every hour they art- out.

After deliberating nearly a whole day
how to determine the contents of the

that would injure anybody, officials
of the Bureau of Combustibles took the

There, from a safe distance, while an

WILL FORM SAFETY LEAGUES
R pid Growth Of Modern City
Makes It Necessary To Study
New York, July 23. How the Amer-1
ican Museum of Safety is conducting its
children's safety crusade in New York
City to prevent the little ones from
being run over by trolley cars and other
vehicles will be told by Dr. William H.
Tolman, safety expert and director
of the American Museum of Safety,
at the National Conversation Exposi
tion which will be held in Knoxville,
Tenn., during September and October.
Mrs. Horace Van Deventer, Presi
dent of the Woman's Department
of the National Conservation Expo
sition, has made arrangements with
President Williams of the American
Museum of Safety whereby a whole
day, probably October 14th will be set
aside and known as the Children's
Safety Day. On this day Children's
Safety Leagues will be formed and the
Children's Safety Crusade started in
earnest in Tennessee. The Woman's
Department of the Conservation Ex
position is also arranging with the rail
roads so that children may be brought
to Knoxville from a radius of a hundred
miles around at greatly reduced rates.
President Williams of the Museum
of Safety has detailed Dr. Tolman
to be at the Exposition on "Safety Day"
bringing with him moving pictures
and lantern slides which will show the
children of Tennessee how the children
in the busy crowded streets of New York
City are avoiding accidents. More
than 412,000 children in the New York
public schools have been enrolled in
the Safety League of the American
Museum of Safety.
Said Dr. Tolman in speaking of the
work of the Museum:
"Accident prevention is primarily
a matter of education, and the hope for
sound and efficient citizens in the future
lies in training the children of the pres
ent generation to think and act along
lines of safety and caution on the streets
and in their homes.
"The very rapid growth of the modern
large city, unexpected and unprovided
for, has deprived the children of yards
and playgrounds. The street of the
city is in many sections the only
available play place. To this fact
as much as to anything else is due
the great daily sacrifice in life and limb.
The great industrial and commercial
development within the confines of
the modern large city has reduced
to a minimum the moral dangers of the
street, and increased to an alarming
extent the physucat dangers. The
rapid growth of the modern large city
has forced many problems on us which
call for solution, but probably none
calls more urgently nor more immediate
ly for solution than the problems of
the protection of life and, limb of
children as well as of adults.
"It is right that the child should be
trained to think and act along lines of
safety and caution on the street, in
the shhop and at home. At any rate,
the dangers of the street, the shop
and the home should be brought to its
notice so that it may at least be forewarned.

Those who have headaches must
surely know that something is wrong
in their organism. A headache is a
warning cry. and it should be heeded,
and no stone should be left unturned
to find what is the cause. No one can
successfully cope with a headache
without knowing exactly why he has it.
The migraine attacks those who are
run down. Rest from work, avoid
ance of fatigue, the proper attention
to diet, the use of some tonic, may
ward off the attacks. A light laxa
tive, taken immediately upon feeling
as though a headache might come, will
often tree the system so that the head
