Today is Armistice Day
Message of President. WilsMUf
rmen: V. , f$?$ ,
My Fellow-countrymen :
A year ago" today our enemies, laid down 'their nrmsjui acpo-rd-i
with an armistice which -tendered thera impotent 'to renew
ance
hostilities'.' nild gave to the"world'ahassured opportunity to recon
struct its' shattered order,'au4 to "vorb out in peace A new and justly
set of international relations. r
Tho soldier and people of the European Allies had fought and
endured for more than four years tq uphold the barrier of civiliza
tion against the aggressions of armed force. We, ourselves, hnd been
in the conflict: something more than a year and a half. ' (l
With splendid forgetfulness of mere' personal concerns, we re
modeled ou,r industries, concentrated our financial resources, in
creased our agricultural outpnt, and assembled a great army, so that
at the last our power was a decisive factor in tho victory.
Wo are able to bring the vast resources, material and moral,
of a great and free people to the," assistance of our associates in
Europe, wh had suffered and sacrificed without limit in tho cause
for which we fought.
Out of this victory there, arose new possibilities of political
freedom and economic concert. The war showed us the strength of
great nations acting together for high purpopos, andjlho victory
of arms foretels the enduring conquests which can be made in peace
when nations act justly and in furtherance of the common interests
of men. ' )"
To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will bo
filled with solemn prido in the heroism of those who died in the
country's service, and with gratitude for the victory both because
of tho thing from which it has freed us, and because of the oppor
tunity it lias given America to phow her sympathy with peace and
justice in the councils of nations. WOODROW WILSON.

One of the most terrible occur
renees to take place in thiscounty
tn recent years, was that of yester
day, when S. , English Anderson,
wealthy farmer and land owner, met
death at the hands of somo negroes
following an altercation ot his place
over disobedience of orders. The ne
groes, John Evans, and his son, John,
were employed by John West, a ten
ant of Anderson to help in the strip
ping of tobacqo. Mr. Anderson had
forbidden them to smoke while in
the barn and late yesterday nfter-
jnoon, on entering the stripping room
found the younger negro in the net
of filling a pipe. Hot words followed
and the negroes left tho place. Be
fore reaching their homo on the dirt
lane near Side View, they were over
taken by Anderson and the argu
ment renewed. The young negro was
stnbbed s6veral times and the elder
r negro then joined the fray. Anderson
v, as beaten" over, the head with n gun
and a enne carried by one of the
negroes, plo wris used with deadly
ire-

effcot'. Anderson's skull was crashed,
both arms broken, receiving in all,
fourteen wounds. 11$ was literally
beaten to death. Lizzie Evans, wife
and mother of the Evans negroes
ran to Side View, a distance of 1 1-2
miles, and gave the alarm.
Sheriff John G. Roberts, Chief of
Police J. C. Tipton nnd Deputy
Jim Scobee rushed to the scene and
placed the negroes under arrest.
They were broughi to this city and
placed in tho county jail, together
with Lizzie Evans, and a negro by
thq iSame of Maupin, who claims to
have been an eye witness to the
tragedy.
The body of the slnin man" was
found by Henry and Dave Galtkill,
in the dirt road, several hours after
he had fallen. It was carried to a
store at Side View. Dr. W. R. Thomp
son nnd Dr. Keller Johnson were
summoned, but found life to be ex
tinct. The body was then carried to
tho Anderson home.
Mr. Anderson was about forty
eight years of age and was one of
tho wealthiest and most successful
farmers in this section owning over
1,000 ncres of fine blue grass land.
His wife, formerly a Miss McDnn
iels, of thi county, died several
yenrs ago. ne is survived by four
children, Mrs. Jake Luigart, of Lex
ington; Judsqii Anderson, of this
county; French Anderson, who lives
ih the West, nnd Convln Anderson,
of the British Army.
The funeral services will be held
from his lat0 residence Wednesday
afternoon at 2 o'clock, by Dr. M. V,
'P. Yenman, assisted by the Knights
Templar. 'Burial 'will follow in the
Anderson family burial grounds.
The entire community was shocked
as it has not been in many mouths,
and when tho news reached this city
shortly after seven o'clock the pike
leading to the Anderson homo w
literally lined with cars for hours.
Mr. Aaderson was a strictly honest
and very useful citizen nnd in his
death h'is community; in particular,
and the entire county in general,
lo9os a worthy citizen. Mr. Anderson
was not a man without faults, but
possessed many splendid traits of
character and there was no one thnt
would go further for a friend than
would tho deceased man. The entire
.community mourns with tho children
in tho loss of their father nnd extend
deep sympathy,
