QUARREL AT DANCE
At Carmel Results In Charles
Sliaper Shooting William
Davidson in Side.
Opened Monday With Good Attendance-Enrollment
Against Tobacco Business.
Editor Nkws-Herai.d I said that
my next article would be, "Can a Con
scientious Christian Raise, Manufact
ure Sell or Use Tobacco?" I am not
asking this question to an infidel,
skeptic or one of those so called higher
critics, but to the Individual that be
lieves the word of God as it teaches
man's obligations to God and one
You say, "I believe in the divine
revelation." Well, then we will com
mence with the creation of this won
derful earth. God created It and gave
it the quality of production without
which man could not subsist. Then
God created man in his own image,
commanding him to go forth and
multiply and replenish the earth and
to till the soil from whence must come
everything that was conductive to
man's happiness, health and comfort.
The earth and the fulness thereof be
longed to God then, as It does now, and
mankind was to be the recipient of
God's bounties under certain prohibi
tions. Men started out in the begin
uing as God's stewards, having to
account to God for the manner in
which they possessed the earth. God's
primitive native was ever growing,
increasing in righteousness until the
I must go back to the text, raising
tabocco. In Its origin audi a thing as
raising tobacco for its present use was
never thought of, and I presume that
the worms that feasted upon it never
thought the time would come when
they would be hunted down and driven
from their possession and mankind,
created in God's image, would slip in
and take their place and devour their
substance. But, nevertheless, it is so.
And there are but three things that
will use tobacco, the worm, that God
created lor that purpose, the moun
tain goat and man. Iamsurenoman
can ask the divine blessing upon his
work as he cultivates the weed, tnat
is a consclentlons Christian. The only
reason that can be given to satisfy a
depraved appetite ana an avaricious
longing for money. The love of money
is the sole reason that can be given for
the manufacture of tobacco. Culti
vating and manufacturing has placed
it upon the market and the retailer
feeds the cultivated appetite for the
money. There can be no high, enob
ing act in the whole business. The
business is blighting and degenerating
our young men and boys, more than
any deteriorating influence in Christ
endom What does this system of business
effect? Suppose that the thousands
of acres cultivated in tobacco were
cultivated In potatoes and other arti
cles of food and was manufuctured and
sold for the table. It certainly would
cut a figure in the high cost of living.
When you Investigate nillsboro with
her ten churches and find that more
money Is spent for tobacco in Its vari
ous forms than is paid for the support
of all these churches, you will wonder
if God notices such items. And yet in
twenty years I have never heard a
sound from a nillsboro pulpit upon
this subject. It is a fact that most of
the tobacco in Hlllsboro is sold by pro
fessing Christians, remember, dear
reader, that I write this with malice
to none and love for all. I want people
to think and investigate this wonder
ful business which today is sweeping
like a destructive avalanche over all
countries, making record not only for
time but for eternity.
Falls From Ladder.
Thompson Henderlxson. of Lynch
burg, while working on the new
Christian Church of that place, fell
from a ladder Friday. His shoulder
blade was broken and his hip crushed. '
He fell about twenty feet. His injur
ies are very serious and but slight
hope of his recovery Is entertained. '
Charles Shaper shot William David
son Saturday night, using a 33 caliber
revolver tlio ball entering Davidson's
left side about five inches below the
heart. The wound while very painful
is not considered dangerous.
Both men live near Carmel and the
trouble occurred at the .home of Jim
Bill Renoe about a mile south of
Renoe had just completed the build
ing of a new home and gave a dance
Saturday night to celebrate the event.
Everything went along quietly and
pleasantly until late in the evening,
when Ulrlc "Bud" Stanley arrived.
, Stanley had been drinking. He and
Shaper Had had some trouble and it
Just after the dance had broken up
a number of the guests having left,
Stanley said to Shaper, "Let's go out
side and talk about our trouble " They
went out, Davidson accompanying
Only these three know what brought
on the shooting, the others being in
the house and rushing out when they
heard the report of the gun.
Davidson was found lying on the
ground with the wound in his side and
Shaper with the gun in his hand.
Davidson was carried into the house
and a phjslcian summoned and the
Shaper first went to his home and
left the revolver and then went to the
home of D. E Stewart, justice of the
peace, and gave himself up. Sherill
Satterlield found him there anout 2
o'clock Sunday morning and brought
him here and placed him in jail.
Two shots were tired during the
trouble the first one being at Stanley
and going wild. According to the
most reliable information during the
quarrel between Shaper and Stanley,
Shaper drew a revolver and pointed it
at Stanley. Here Davidson interfered
striking Shaper's arm and it is claimed
by Shaper knocking him down. Shaper
sajs he shot Davidson while Ijingon
Shaper says that the shooting was
done in self defense.
The feeling generally in the neigh
borhood Is that Stanley is to blame
for the trouble, although Shaper had
been in trouble before and Is considered
a dangerous man by some.
The preliminary hearing will be held
before Squire Stewart next Monday.
Davidson Is getting along nicely and
it Is thought will soon recover.
The ball was not found.

In addition teachers iiave been se
cured for children who have work to

children failed last year in one or
