done. Pour out the fat that remains
and return the pieces of tall to the

catsup, and stew very gently for one

and turnip Into very neat pieces, add
them and stew for three-quarters of

Dawson, Ga.— What Is the strange
power possessed by little
Averitte? That is the question which
many mystified people are asking and
have been unable to answer. The
child herself does not attempt to offer
an explanation. This power, or oc­
cult force, or whatever it may be, en­
ables her to write word for word the
contents of an unopened letter and un­

ter o f J. D. Averitte, a well-known
farmer living two miles north of Daw­

a normal, fun-loving, romping child.
There Is nothing to differentiate her
from her playmates. And yet there Is
the marvelous faculty with which she
is endowed which makes her case one
perhaps unparalleled.
The first demonstration of little
Laura’s peculiar power took place
several weeks ago. A member of her
fem ily had received a letter, and
brought it unopened Into the house.
I know what is In that letter,” Laura
asserted. The relative smiled at the
childish boast. “ I ’ll show you,” she
Insisted. And In a spirit of fun she
was given paper and pencil at her re­
quest, the unopened letter was placed
nearby and
prepared to con­
vince the members of her family.
Slowly the pencil moved over the
sheets of paper, word followed word
and sentence followed sentence, and
finally little
"T h ere It is.”
And there It was.
The envelope
was opened. Smiles turned to expres­
sions of wonderment, and wonder­
ment almost changed to awe whep It
was found that the letter had been set
down word for word by the child.
Seeking an explanation from the
girl those surrounding her met only
“ I don't know" from her.
Other letters came to the A veritte
household. Further tests of Laura’s
peculiar powers were made, and in

had written the contents of the un­
opened letter practically without er­
