Puff pastry Is a delicious little dainty
to Include la the picnic luncheon menu
To make puff paste take a pound ol
flour and sift It well and stir la a
pinch ot salt, the beaten yolk of an
egg and sufficient lea cold water to
make a stiff paste. As flour varies
so much In the quantity ot water that
tt will take up, it Is almost Impossible
to tell how much will be required.
Consequently a little should be added
at a time till the dough la mixed.
Stake some good fresh butter and wash
tt in water and then wrap In a cloth
and lay It In the Ice chest, If there is
one handy; if not, place on the floor
of the pantry for an hour. Boll out
the dough and place the batter in a
lump In the center of the dough and
fold the aides over It Set away in a
cold place for another hour. Then
roll It out Into a long atrip. Fold this
Into three by turning in the ends. Keep
the dough quite cold and continue this
process six times. Between the third
and fifth rollings out lay the dough
In a cold place for an hour before pro
ceeding. Then It Is ready to bake.
Before placing In the oven the top of
the pastry should be brushed over
either with milk or the beaten yolk of
an egg. The latter gives the pastry
a rich yellow tint, which, however, Is
not always liked. Bake In a quick
oven and take out as soon as cooked
and nicely browned. Pastry should be
cooled In a hot or warm room, as it
keeps its crispness better.
To make sweet fillings for any of the
molds either stew the fruit until quits
thick, using only Just sufficient water,
or else mash or slice the fresh fruit
sweeten to taste and fill the molds.
Mash with whipped cream or serve
plain. These ple3 are delicious, and
aa they are served cold are so easy tc
prepare once the cases are made. The
mailer cases can be filled with sweets
or savories aa liked. Vegetables serv
ed In cases is a nice way of using ur
cold vegetables. ' They may be used
either hot or cold.
These cases are delightfully easy
things to take to a picnic. Store the
cases in a tin box and take the filling
In Jars. There will be no appalling
mixture of sweets and meats, for until
the cases are filled their contents are
reposing in tightly corked or stoppered
wide necked Jars. A delicious filling
for the cases and much liked at river
lunches la made with a tin of lobster
and cream. Whip a teacupful of cream
to a stiff froth and cut open the lob
iter tin and mince all the flesh finely
Squeeze a few drops of lemon juice
over and sprinkle with paprika pep
per and any flavoring liked. Just be
fore filling the cases stir the cream
and lobster together and fill the cases.
Stand on some fresh lettuce leaves
and there you are!
Any nice cream filling may be made
of meat finely minced and nicely fla
vored and placed In a pan with a sprln
kle of flour and a tablespoonful of
good gravy. Simmer till stiff, take
off the fire and add two tablespoonfuls
of cream when the meat is almost
Prime requirements of the salad are
lightness and crispness. Heavy gar
nishes are to be avoided at all times,
but particularly in the summer.
Only the white leaves of the lettuce
should be used, and these or the cres
should be allowed to stand in the ice
water for an hour before serving. The
salad dressing should never be put on
the lettuce or cress, or, for that mat
tar, on the salad mixture, until Just
before the salad Is wanted at the table.
When It is to be prepared the green
salad should be thoroughly dried in n
napkin, and the salad dish should be as
cold as possible.
Nests of lettuce leaves, made of four
leaves with the stem ends laid over
lapping each other, or a deft arrange
ment of cress in the same shape, placed
carefully on a broad, flaring dish and
filled with the salad mixture, is easily
served and effective in appearance.
If mayonnaise or boiled dressings
are used, enough should be saved, aft
ar mixing the ingredients, to cover the
top. Vegetables salads are pretty dec
orated with a border of finely shredded
red pepper or lettuce or both inter
laced or with fine strips of the white
of boiled eggs. Nasturtium blossoms,
which have a pleasant spicy llavor.
are pretty as a decoration and add
to the taatlness. If green or red Is
wanted In the dressing, spinach green,
bits of green pepper or finely chopped
parsley may be used for the former
and powdered dried lobster coral or
beet juice for the latter.
A 8implo Sunday Supper.
Some jellied meat or salad, with
bread and butter, is quits sufficient.
If a salad Is preferred as a piece de
resistance in place of meat it may be
a little heavier than the bit of green
erred at dinner. Nuts, fish, cheese or

ROW BETWEEN BIG STEAMSHIP
COMPANIES MAY BECOME
Baltimore, Aug. 27. It is the belief
in shipping,-fruafters that the present
fight between the North German
Lloyd Jand the Hamburg-American
steamship lines over the distribution of
immigrant business to this country may
terminate in a general freight war
among" the transatlantic companies
The controversy has not yet gottento
the point where the freight traffic is in
volved, but many think that the feel
ing engendered by the fight for the
immigrant trade will go further and
include other business as well.
Both the North German Lloyd and
the Hamburg American lines have a
fleet of steamers to Baltimore, but the
last named has devoted most of its
local service to freight and has given
no attention to the immigrant or pas
senger trade. If, however,, it should
place immigrant boats to this port
it is declared it will be an easy step
to make provision for cabin passengers
which many say is almost certain to

The North German Lloyd interests
say the service to Boston as well as a
conteRplated one to New Orleans, has
been under consideration for nearly a
year. They assert it is not directed
against the Hamburg-American, but
is purely a business matter.
However this may be, it will cause

A Story For Labor Day
By DORETHA HALE
Little Mamie Swift was taken very
ill in the night and her father was
called up to go for the doctor. Swift
feared the child would die and began
to trot From trotting he Increased
his pace to a run.
He heard footsteps behind him, and
they were gaining on him. But he
thought nothing noout it for his mind
was on his sick child. Suddenly the
pursuer clapped a hand on his shoul
der and handcuffs on his wrist
"What's this?" he asked, astonished.
"You're wanted," replied a police
man. "Let me go. My child Is sick, and 1
must get a doctor."
"Oh, the doctor racket has bean
worked too often. It's no good."
Swift was in agony, but could da
nothing. He was taken to a police
station, where a complaint ot burglary
was entered against him. A woman
came to the station, looked at the pris
oner and said, "That's the man," and
Meanwhile the mother waited for
the return of her husband with the
doctor. Morning came, but neither
Swift nor the doctor came. As the
Bun rose the child died. Then to com
plete-tho mother's agony word came
from her husband that while running
for the doctor he had been mistaken
for a burglar and arrested.
During the day the toils tightened
around Swift The rogues' gallery was
ransacked for his picture, and the
photograph of a criminal named Jack
Dowlen, who was the image of Swift
was found. The woman who had
identified the prisoner the night be
fore rooked at him again and was
sure it was the man she had caught
opening her bureau drawers and, on
being discovered, had run.
There was never a clearer case
against a man. Had he been a gentle
man he could have proved that bur
glary was not In his line, but he was
a plain workingman and could only
prove that his name was on the rolls
of the Carpenters' union In good and
regular standing. But this did not
save him. lie was convicted of bur-
clary and sentenced to six years In
The day he was sent up his wife
came to see him. She knew he was
Innocent and had sworn that he had
been with her five minutes before the
alleged burglary had been committed
and that he had left her to go for a
doctor to attend their sick child. The
story would have elicited sympathy
if it had been believed, but it was
not What was the testimony of a
burglar's wife worth? Nothing.
"Well, Tom," she said to him, "this
is hard, isn't it?"
"Yes, Mary, it is."
Why don't they find a way to avoid

"Maybe some day the union will
have persons whose business it will
be to ferret out such cases as appear
among their members."
"I hope It will."
"Well, Tom, keep np a good heart
I'll work for the children."
The convict was too disheartened to
make any response to his wife's hope
fulness. All he said was if he'd been
let go on for the doctor the child might
be alive now.
Swift had served a year in prison
when one night a burglar was caught
red handed in a burglary. He hap
pened to be taken to the same station
Swift had been taken when arrested
on bis way for the doctor. The man
at the desk looked at him In sur

The sergeant looked puzzled.
"Take him In and lock him up," he
said "I'll find out about the matter in
The next day he learned that Thomas
Swift the man he supposed Patsy
Wolff to be, was at the penitentiary.
The picture In the rogues' gallery was
examined, and it was found that it
might be the likeness of either one of
the men. It began to dawn on the po
lice that they had made a mistake.
A month later, after a great deal of
red tape had been untied, on the morn
ing of Labor day, Tom Swift waa dis
charged from prison, and, having
reached the city where he had left hlsN

Local Musicians Held A Very En
thusiastic Meeting Last
WILL ORGANIZE VERY SOON
Local Business Men Offer To Give
Band Any Possible
In answer to a call sent out a day
or two ago by R. C. Minich, who is
promoting the organization of a band
in this city, seventeen musicians met
in the Chamber of Commerce rooms last
evening for the purpose of discussing
the advisability of organizing this
musical organization. Among those
present were several members of a
former New Bern band and they were
very much enthused over the prospect
of organizing a new musical organiza
Mr. Minich stated that he had
visited a number of the local business
men and discussed with them his pro
posed plan and that they had offered
to help the band in any way possible.
One gentleman offering to give them a
hall free of charge. The Paint and Pow
der Club has also agreed to give a
benefit performance, the proceeds to
be used in purchasing instruments.
After considerable discussion it was
decided that the best course to pursue
would be to have a first and second band
the experienced players to be in the
first one and those who were unfamiliar
with musical instruments, and there
fore unable to play; to be in the second
which would be under the direct super
vision of an instructor. If this course
is followed it will be possible to rein-
force the first band from the second
if one of the members drops out oris
unable to attend on some important
occasion. The instruments of the
members of the first band will be fur
nished them by the organization while
in the second band the members will
supply their own instruments.
So much enthusiasm was manifested
by those present at the meeting last
ni ht that it would have been possible
t I organize the band at that time
but it was thought best to delay this
for a few days and in the meantime
the names of every one who desires
o join the organization can be secured
and at th- next meeting which will
probably be held next week the or
ganization can be made.
More than five years has elapsed
since New Bern had a good brass band,
but there is every indi.ation that be
fore many weeks elapse the city can
boast of as capable a musical organiza
tion as there is in the State.
Animals Dont Need Eyes.
Animals do not depend upon their
eyesight In the same way as hnman
beings. Cats and dogs could get along
vary well without eyes. A cat can
find her way with the aid of her
whiskers. These are the same width
as her body and connected with nerves
which cause her to feel the slightest
Dogs can be entirely guided by their
sense of smell. Blind dogs have been
known to scent and find their way to
the most Inaccessible places. Their
bearing is also preternaturally sharp.

chiefly upon their noses, muscles
