Mr. Griffin's Serious Condition
Mr. C. A. Griffin was carried to
the hospital in Columbia Sunday
and is now regarded as being ir a
serious condition. His friends sym
pathize with him very deeply. Early
Saturday morning he was seized with
a severe pain in his left leg below the
knee and a physician was called in.
It was found that the large artery
of the lower portion of his left leg
had become clogged interfering with
.the circulation. ,Soon after the
trouble manifested itself the affect
ed part of his leg became numb and
lifeless. Since he was carried to the
hospital it has been decided that the
amputation of the left leg just a
bove the knee is necessary to pre
vent the poison incident to the dis
eased condition of his leg from pas
sing into his entire system. The clog
ging of an artery is exceedingly rare
and the only relief afforded is
through amputation whenever pos
sible. We trust that the treatment
will prove successful and that Mr.
Griffin will soon be able to return
to his home.

famililarly called are having
the interior of the Norris
building completely transformed,
making one large well appointed
store room on the first floor instead
of two as heretofore. Mr. Heath is
in charge of the -work, which guar

stock will be greatly enlarged by the
addition of groceries and other lines.
j In this issue will be found a large
attractive advertisement of Mr. W. J.
Hatcher of Johnston, in which he
announces the appearance of a new
model Buick car, a four-cylinder car,
for the popular price of $975. Buick
cars have a splendid reputation in
this section and are among the lead
ers in their class, hence this an_
nouncement of Mr. Hatcher in the
Advertiser this week will be pleasing
information to many of our readers.
No implement on the farm can do
more work or do more kinds of work
and do it more economically, than a
Fordson Tractor. Give us an oppor
tunity to prove this to you.

Death of Mr. Henry Jackson.
Though some weeks have passed
since the going of Mr. Henry Jack
son, yet we trust it is not too late
to express a word of appreciation of
so valuable a life of our friend and
brother, Henry Jackson.
The Phillippi community and Phil
hoi Baptist Church feel they sus
tain a distinct loss in the death of Mr.
Henry Jackson, who departed this
life July 30, 1921. Had he lived un
til September 29, he would have
rounded out his three score years and
ten-a life replete with noble as
pirations and good deeds.
Mr. Henry Jackson was twice mar
ried and had a noble family. He was
first married to Miss.Marina Frank
lin and this union was blessed with
five children. In the second marriage
he was united to Mrs. Elizabeth
Franklin which union was blessed
with seven children.
Mr. Jackson lived all his life in the
Phillippi community, near Johnston,
He early united with the Phillippi
church and served the church very
acceptably in every capacity-faith
ful member, active and honored se
nior deacon, Superintendent of the,
Sunday School, Bible class teacher,
and a member of the finance com
mittee and various committees 'and
lived a loyal and consistent member
to his death.
He was punctual and faithful to
all stated services of the church and
a close attentive and appreciative
listener to the preached word, able
in prayer, a great pastor's helper, a
staunch and strong supporter of all
the causes fostered by the church.
He was a zealous believer in missions
particularly foreign missions, giving
a son to the foreign mission work in
China. Aso deeply interested in all
activities of the church and religious
welfare of the community in general.
So valuable a member and noble
citizen will be greatly missed.
He was buried in the cemetery of
his own church after a very simple
but beautiful and impressive funeral,
service. Brother Brooke of the first I
Baptist church of Johnston assisted
in the service and read John 14, the
favorite chapter of Mr. Jackson, fol.
lowed by some brief but appropriate
remarks by his pastor as to how he
would be greatly missed and some
music by the local church choir,'then
there was a special, chorus front
Johnston rendered "Face to Face ,
and other selections very sweetly to
the satisfaction of the family and
loved ones of the deceased. The
grand daughters served! as (flower
girls and the son-in-laws, together
with the deacons of the church serv
ed as pall-bearers.
To the bereaved family we extend
our deepest sympathy and prayers
and commend them to the love and
sympathy of our Heavenly Father.
In planning for diversified farm
ing remember that the improved im
plement you need most is a Fordson
Tractor. See us abopt one.

Mob Before Jail Brought To
Barnstable, Mass., Aug. 19.-A
mob of nearly 200men and women
carrying ropes early, to-day stormed
the local jail, threatening to lynch 3
Cape Verde island negro prisoners
charged with highway robbery and
criminal assault on a young white
woman at Buzzard's Bay.
At 2:30 this morning 25 automo
biles, whose occupants included wo
men as well as men drove up to the
local jail. Others came on foot and
together they marched on the jail
entrance. They demanded the three
negroes, John Dies,, Benjamin Go
mez and Joseph Andrews, from' Sher
iff Irving L. Rosenthal.
There were shouts of "Let's get
them," as the mob approached the
brick structure, but when the jail
defenders, five men in all, fired in
the air the crowd came to a halt.
Chief Warden James Boland warned
the mob back, shouting that at the
first attempt to attack the jail they
"would be shot down like rats."
The warning had its effect, but the
crowd remained outside the jail near
ly an hour and a half, still threaten
ing an attack, while Sheriff. Rosen
thal, Chief Warden Boland and the
three others stood guard with shot
There are ten prisoners in the
Barnstable jail. Usually two men
are considered sufficient to guard it.
Last night because of the Wareham
incident the sheriff personally took
command and augmented the force
to five. Today more guards will be
added, and sheriff Rosenthal inti
mated also that he might ask for
state ^troops to help him. The second

Massachusetts guard is stationed five
miles away on its summer encamp

Today's was the second early
morning threat of violence against
one of the negroes, a crowd having
attempted yesterday to get John

Barnstable, Mass., Aug. 19.
Sheriff Irving L. Rosenthal late to
night asked for state troops to help
guard the county jail here where
three negroes are held on charges
of robbery and assault upon a young
white woman. He had received a re
port that a party of negroes was
being organized at Onset to come
here and try to free the prisoners.
The sheriff sent an investigator to
Onset to determine whether the re
port of a rescue party was well
The prisoners, John Dies, Benja
