Evidence to Hold Mao
With Burning Store Because
Bloodhounds Trailed to
N. C, June 1907
Editor of The Daily Free Press.
N. C,
Dear Sir;
In a recent issue of your paper
you published what purported to
be an account of the burning f
the storehouse of Mr. Graham,
near It was stated
that Mr J. R. Harrington
been bloodhounds and
was believed to be the man who
had burned the stun- and that
Mr. Harrington had been
for his appearance
before a magistrate in Beaufort.
Since this article appeared in
your paper the has been
tried before the magistrate in
Beaufort and as there was but
little evidence, the solicitor,
who ally conducted the
prosecution, requested that the
case be dismissed, which was
done.
Mr. is a
mar, of flood character, a member
of the Methodist church in good
standing, and belongs to a good
family of people in
county. He had no connection
whatever with the burning of
the store and his arrest was one
of those unfortunate incidents
which sometimes happen in a
man's life.
The store was burned on Sat-
night. Many people visit-
ed the place on Sunday, and on
Monday hounds were
brought from Greenville and
put upon a track which was sup-
posed to be the track of the per-
son who burned the store. There
was no evidence that anyone
had urned the store as the
nay have from some
cause The blood-
hounds followed the track which
had been selected to be followed
until they came to a creek, when
the track was lost The parties
then a boat and crossed the
creek and went several miles
without any further trace of any
track They came to a landing
and the dogs started on the
again, although there was no
track there, as it is in the woods.
After going some distance they
entered a field where Mr.
was and
the parties near Mr.
he the dogs
came to him and lay
down at his feet. The dogs were
very tired and Mr. Harrington
thought they lay down to rest.
They did not bay him or do any-
thing more than come up and lie
down on the ground.
Alter this evidence he stated
to the court that he had no
sufficient and thereupon
the case was dismissed- The
course pursued by the solicitor
was very highly complimented
j and proves that he is a fearless
j and just prosecutor.
Mr. Harrington proved an
alibi by his family and neighbors.
He was at home Saturday night
when the store was burned and
did not leave his house that
i light.
I hope you will publish this, as
your previous article was widely
circulated and was calculated to
damage Mr. Harrington's char-

feature of the Savory roaster
the oval bottom, with the

moisture brought out of the meat
by cooking has no chance to ac-
cumulate and is burned and dried
up in the bottom of the pan. In
the oval this meat juice
flows continuously to the lowest
point of the bottom, where it is
turned into steam and condensed
on the surface of the meat This
condensation continues until the
roast has become heated through
to the temperature of the

condensation stops and the brown
of the roast begins.
The Savory roaster is self bast-

bottom is raised off oven

heat to the roast from all sides
