NEMO AND NINTH OWNSHIP Washington, July 22. In antici nation of the new tariff act admitt'ng free of duty meat and meat products Secretary Houston, of the department of agriculture, has detailed Dr. A D. Melvine, chief of the bureau ol animal Industry, to go to South Amcr ica to investigate the slaughtering, canning and general packing hous businesss of that continent. Secretar Houston also has ordered Dr. E. C. Joss, of the bureau of animal industry, whose headquarters are at Portland, Ore., immediately to proceed to Aus tralia to make a similar- investigation there. It was admitted at the department of agriculture that as a matter of fact D-. Melvine and DrI Joss, both expert in their line, are being sent to the big beef producing countries to instruct the packers there how to prepare theii products so as to expedite the entry into this country of fresh beef whet the att becomes effective. The action of the department ii sending experts with assistnats is re 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 ly received information that American packers are preparing to increase their facilities in South American countries in anticipation of increased trade, but whether or not this prom iscs any substantial relief seems doubt fuL According to Dr. Melvin the situa tion in regard to the beef supply in this country is serious. He says that Americans are the greatest consum ers of beef in the world. According to Dr. Melvin the aver age consumption of meat here is 162 pounds a year for each person, of Which beef alone constitutes eighty pounds. "One of the reasons of the lack of beef cattle fn this country," said Dr. Melvin today, "is a failure to per mit cattlemen to lease public range where it can be fenced and water de veloped, and the most got out of the public range in that way. At present the government has ro satisfactory leasing system so that cattlemen would be justified in naklng plans for the future. "Estimates by the brreau of statis tics of the department of agriculture show that in the lost six years the number of beef cattle in the United States has fallen from 41,566, 000 to 36,030,000, or 30 per ct nt.

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 poration s office st.it!, received the 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, in elevator runner in the building and gave him the package. Roberts cirried it to the roof in the elevator and placed it on the roof. Meanwhile the police were notified the wrapper AFFAIR CREATES EXCITEMENT Warrants Served On All The Parties And Hearing Will Take Place Saturday. Albert E.

BATHING WAS NEVER BETTER Grand Military Ball To Be Given On Next Saturday Night. Tl (Special to the Journal.) 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.

When Egan came and examined the strange machine he said he had never seen anything like it. As one tipped it up there was the sound of a liquid rolling about in the shell. This sug gested nitro-glycerine, and also sug gested a phosphorus compound. Nitro glycerine is the first thing a bomb experts thinks of when he finds that the case he holds contains a liquid. This explosive ordinarily would re quire some sort of a concussion to set it off. The smoothly finished jointed zinc case looked harmless enough in it self. If there was nitro-glycerine in side, the person who manufactured the machine may have expected that Mr. Carnegie or some of his asso ciates or subordinates would be fright ened at the appearance of the case and drop it which would set off nitro-glycerine nicely; or perhaps he thought some one would be foolish enough to go at it with a hammer and chisel, which would furnish the required concussion A hint was given to the detectives that the recent transfer by Mr. Car negie of $10,000,000 from the Ameri can corporation to his Dumferline cor poration in Scotland, may have had something to do with the sending of the machine. This hint was based on the theory that the sending was the work of some fanatic, whose idea of patriotism was affronted by the trans fer of so much money to Scotland. The detectives didn't take the suggestion very seriously. If the case is filled with nitro-glycerine, as appeared pos sible, it was a mere matter of luck that it didn't explode in the mails while in transit, for there was nothing about but the wrapping paper to lesson the concussion of the ordi nary jamming about which a package wouia get in nananng. mown see performance.

New York, July 23. The mystery of the "bomb" sent to Andrew Carnegie yesterday in care of the secretary of the Carnegie Corporation has been solved It was a juicy cheese inclosed in a smell-proof case of zinc a Scotch cheese, according to an expert called into conference after the bureau had definitely determined that the "bomb" contained neither nitroglycerine, dy namite nor other deadly explosive. After deliberating nearly a whole day how to determine the contents of the "bomb" without causing an explosion that would injure anybody, officials of the Bureau of Combustibles took the "infernal machine" to a vacant lot. There, from a safe distance, while an immense crowd waited with their fingers in their ears expecting an awful report, an official leveled a rifle at the "bomb" and perforated it with a bullet. A thick yellow substance oozed from the hole and that was all that happened. Four more bullets were fired into the "bomb" and still silence reigned. Soon, however, a pungent and self-explanatory odor became perceptible, and even the laymen present were able to recognize the true nature of the "bomb." The cheese was returned to the Car negie Corporation resembling more the Swiss product that the Scotch. Mr. W. D. Ipock, Dear Sir, For two years past I have been sick and under the care of two of the best doctors we have. But after drinking the Blue Springs water for two days I felt more relief than at any time while taking the doctor's medicine.

The water is till helping me and I shall continue drinking it a while longer. Yours truly, B. D. CAYTON. July 11, 1913. Edward, N.

C WILL FORM SAFETY LEAGUES R pid Growth Of Modern City Makes It Necessary To Study Accident Prevention. 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. and COW -TRY IT- E E D A. Meadows, New Bern, N. C. KiSSSSSISS C.L.

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 ache can be avoided.State Board .of Jlcalth fi'Css Scrvcf, YOUR LETTER WENT ASTRAY Because you forgot to addreis it.
