Washington, May 1. The postmaster at Salisbury,
N. C, today wired postoffice officials here that he had
discovered a bomb in the mails there addressed to United
States Senator Lee Overman.

Secret service ogents all over the Urn

bombs believed to have been sent to
prominent incu.
Discovery of 17 infernal machines
here, held up for lack of sufficient

place Is believed to be on the west sidoj
of New York between Twentieth and

Return After Seeing Much
. Of Country.
. Dr. and Mrs. C. H. Clements, who
have been swinging Mound the circum
ference of the United States during the
past two mouths, havo just returned
home after covering something less than
10,000 miles of territory. They left Ore
gon bv wnv of Pan Francisco and hos
Angeles, traversed all the southern
states, stopping at all the important
cities, and then swung northward to
Baltimore and New York. At one or
two points they stopped for a visit of a
week with relatives.
Dr. Clements made this tour va'tiy
with a view to visiting witlrgreat med
ical institutions and clinics of the coun
try, and along with some very pleasant
sight seeie- he devoted a large part of
Ihe time to close observation of what
the medical and surgical sciences were
doing in the way of modern methods.
Among other institutions he stopped
at Johns Hopkins university and at tht
Mayo Brothers institute at Rochester,
Minnesota. Questioned as to the merits
of this institution, tl' doctor was
guarded. It is unouostionifbly the great
est thing of its kind in the world. In
the matter of efficiency, system and
orgu nidation it is magnificent and mar
velous. He found that every appliance
and equipment know to the profession
was being utilized with a view to hand
ling the greatest number of pr.tients in
a given time. The four great hospitals
and the grounds and the city itself is
constructed to this end. But when his
attention was called to the world-idea
