About 40 or 50 new buildings, stables and other necessary equipment are being constructed rapidly.

It seems that the camp's present water system js all right for a small crowd, but when worked hard the pumps bring forth gait water, and the soldiers do not care for salt water except when it is in the sound or ocean. The New Bern -merchants and whole salers are strictly on the job at Camp Glenn. In fact there are a few there who seem to have "enlisted" for the time being at least. Talking about camDing. but these New Bern men are camping on the campers; trail. It is said that one well Known Dusiness house has gotten aooui j.u,vuu wurm pf business out of the present mobilisation and'others are doing well also. At the camp yesterday were repre sentatives of hardware dealers, mill supply dealers, tinners, wnoiesaie grocers, cracKer salesmen, meat uib- tributors, ana a numoer:oi omer mies. One of New Bern's tinning establishments got an order for tin for some of the new buildings' roofs, while others sold pipe, garbage cans, hay, etc. A JJew Bern bakery , is furnishing bread, cakes and pies for the soldiers and last night sent down 3,000 loaves of bread. Will be Many Hones. It is understood that there will be several hundred horses in the camp when all. the cavalry arrives. The freight yesterday afternoon brought in several cars, ' and there were already about 75 or 100 " The companies are equipped with large, modern for haulinsr. and all of the cdi-nQ .wsre tin sv vesterdav. ! It is understood that the wholesale grocers and provision merchants are not gretting heavy orders yet, owing to the fact the soldiers went into camp vcith ten days provisions with them, and five more days provisions contracted for, and on top of that the government ordered them not .to contract for any further ahead for those supplies, as it is expected they may be en route to the border by that time. Railroad Men Bawy. The Norfolk Southern ' officials are I doing everything possible to handle the crowds. Starting yesterday the camp train service was inaugurated. Col. H. S. Leard, general passenger agent of the road, was at the camp yesterday and he is doing everything possible to see that the Norfolk Southern's passenger -service is Kept up to Its usual standard of efficiency. -The government has leased from Col. James A. Bryan, of this city, a. large tract of land lying on Bogue Sound, adjoining, -the camp grounds. With the entire guard mobilizing at one time more ground was needed-and the arrangements were made with Mr. Bryan for the use of his land. Work ob Harbor of Refuge. v The work on the harbor of refuge at Cape Lookout is progressing rapidly, and the contractors, D. L- Taylor-& Co., of Baltimore, are keeping up with the requirements of ttoerr contract and it is understood that the company has been able to make arrangements with two more quarries " from which to ob tain the rock used in this work, and with favorable weather the work will j proceed even more rapidly -than .the government requires. On account of litigation over the land which the government desired in connection with this work the breakwater was started about -1,500 feet from shore. About 2,700 feet of the breakwater is now snowing over the surface of the ocean. When completed the breakwater will be 7,000 feet long. The contractors nave four large barges which they use in transporting the rock from Morehead City to Cape Lookout. Two of the barges are "dump barges" and the other two are large "derrick barges." The derrick barges will each carry 30 carloads (a whole trainload) of rock on , one trip. -The large pieces of rock, some of which weigh as much as 20 tons, are easily lifted out of the barges by the derricks and placed in the position desired. The dump barges carry the smaller rock, and the bottoms of these are opened when at desired points and the entire contents dumped into the ocean. Large Derricks for Unloading. At pier No. 1 in Morehead City the construction company has large derricks which are used in taking the stone from the cars and placing same on the barges. Twenty or 30 cars, under favorable circumstances, can be unloaded in five or stx hours. The small stone is loaded in large buckets and these buckets are hoisted right out of the car and placed on the barges.

Israel Nachamson, more than 80 years old, an intelligent old man . from Baltimore, here to spend the summer . with a son, cannot become reconciled to the loss of his wife, about his age, as a result of the war in Asia. Mr. Nach amson, an American citizen, was vis iting in Turkish territory in Asia when the Turks declared war. He became separated from his wife in a panic of refugees. He was carried to Alexan dria on an American man-of-war, but his wife failed to reach there. She died recently, although relatives in this country are said to have made numerous attempts to have her brought back. Money was -forwarded to her at Joppa until her demise, but Mrs. Nach-aisson fell ill after constant brooding over her predicament in spite .of the comforts that she was able to secure.-; qertalnly Does Help Smooth Oat Rough -Place of Life.

Important points of the bitter and often unreasonable arguments of red-faced, explosive complainants are handed to her on memoranda by a clerk who stands in back and listens. But "Miss Benevolence," all unaware of the stormy words hurled at her, smiles and smiles and smiles and smiles. And then smiles some more, with never a smirk, 'til the storm of unreason and, you know, it's apt as not to be unreason -is over. And the storm always does pass by, for she never loses that genial composure, but smiles and returns smilefu!, soft-spoken words for wrathful and bitter invective. Don't think that a mouth with .upturned corners denotes weakness or that there's such a thing as being too prpud to grin; for you can fight the good fight better when 'you smile. There was a time when, grim-visaged, deep-chested men once roamed the earth, whose mighty roar set whole cities trembling, in their path. But, bless your heart! they have gone the way of all bugbears of the past! The "stuffed club" of benevolence and good humor does most of the winning these days. He is off to the Mexican border in rtnswer to the cali from the fresident of the ' United States, The True Gentlemowan. All. the things which the term "lady" has' come to mean are neither worthy nor lovable. But no unfortunate connotation has so far risen to destroy the primal meaning of the word "gentlewoman." . The external signs of the gentlewoman are good manners, poise of bearing. and charm of voice. The chief internal qualities from which the good manners should rise are unselfishness, tolerance and consideration for others, which is only another name for unselfishness. Chance has decreed that some girls are so circumstanced that it is easy for them to be gentlewomen; for others great difficulties stand in the way. J3ut no girl need fear, of reaching such an ideal if she cares to exercise the patience and self-suppression necessary to attain the inner and outer graces which belong to the true gentlewoman . So far as the inner graces are concerned, tio one is born with the quality of unselfishness, although some fortunate people have such a bent for it that it can be early disciplined into them-The baby is born an egoistand everyone around him must, perfrree, minister, to his egoism. His J little, horizon is filled with Just himself ,Vand when he begins to talk-the. niost of Tak speeches T)egin "baby wants" or "baby doesn't want," It is only careful-training that will give the child the proper conception of the rights of : others .-Human nature is, at the best, so defective that only' constant self -discipline will keep one from putting- One's own rights always, first. : " The true gentlewoman- knows that the Christian theories which look upon unselfishness as. a duty , are something more than pleasant principles set up , on ' some' higii shelf of .the soul where they are kept for show only. The gold of the rule, "Do unto others as . you would that they should do to you" ought to be kept burnished by constant use. The gentlewoman does not say. "Why should I do this kindness for her? She would not do it for me!" Nor does she say, "If you consider other people before yourself, they'll let you do it, and will impose on you." The true gentlewoman knows that hard people can often be won ' and changed by unselfish treatment. She also knows that the sense of justice is sufficiently alive in the world so that an unselfish person's friends will" not permit selfish people to. impose too much upon her. Above all, she realizes that her duty is not to consider the-possible failure of her efforts in a pretty imperfect world, nor the reactions upon herself; she tries to be unselfish, not to get a return in kind for it, but because unselfishness is right. The complesvertt of unselfishness and good consideration for others is tolerance. When other people are grasping or unfair, the gentlewoman tries to excuse them, on the ground that they are doubtless doing the best they can. She is not smug about it, does not thank God that she is not as other people; shie simply believes that people probably think they are justified' in whatever line of conduct they take. This breadth of view, this generosity, is a grace quite as admirable as unselfishness; in its. way it is a kind of unselfishness. It does not follow that the outward qualities of personality correspond with the inner qualities, but they should. A charming manner will not atone for ut ter unselfishness, nor will an . abrupt nervous manner, however unattractive, conceal a beautiful spirit. Yet, ideally, there should be a" correspondence between inner and outer qualities Maude Radford Warren in Woman's World for- July. shape from other poisonous reptiles in that it is slender rather than thick bodied. It strikes without coiling and moves with great swiftness. While being examined it ejected a stream of colorless poison for a distance of 17 inches. Dr. Charles L. Edwards, naturalist for the public schools, inclines to the belief that it may be related to the vipers. "Until this time I have never known of a smooth scaled snake which was poisonous," he said. PROFITS OP TRAPPERS. Reports recently received at the office othe provincial game warden indicate the earnings of trappers who spend a portion of each year in the wilds of British Columbia. The fur products of the province ag gregate approximately $500,000 each, year, one recent consignment from the Peace river districts having been disposed of to ah American buyer for $25,000. The lot included one black sil- ver fox skin valued at $800. One trapper sent in from Cariboo for the five months from November 1 until March 31 a list showing that he had trapped 1Q3 beavers, 35 marten, 16 mink, 20 muskrats, 6 lynx. 45 weasels and 5 wolverines. Another had secured 37' beaver, 111 marten, 2 mink, 1 lynx, 43 weasels and 3 wolverines. Allowing aa fair prices as $5 for1 beaver, $6 for marten, $4 for mink, 25 cents for musk- j rat, $10 for lynx, 50 cents for weasel and $15 for wolverine,, the first mentioned trapper realized approximately $1,050 and the second $900 for the five-months' work. FIND NEW VENOMOUS SNAKE (Los Angeles Correspondence). A poisonous snake that reptile experts and naturalists have so far been unable to classify and which may be of a new species came into the possession of Ed Hambly and Jack Horn. The snake was caught by a Mexican at one of, the road camps near Los Angeles. ' The snake has two fangs,' each about one-eighth of an inch longl In an effort to determine whether; or not the reptile is poisonous it was placed in an inclosure with a white rat. The rat was bitten and died in convul-' sions shortly after,. The snake is three feet and a half in length and olive green tn color. Its color changes to a pale yellow when it is angered and light brown markings appear upon its back. Contrary to other venomous snakes it has the dou ble set of scales that are found on harmless .varieties. The 'scales are smooth and it has extraordinary long jawbones. Its eyes are the round pupil ed eyes of the harmless snake, and 1t has only one set of nostrils.'
