T'nited State?. Mr. Parks is ?tili very
active for one of his age, anil he takes
as much interest in Masonry now as
he did when he first Joined that noble
order, and he never fails to attend the

A FEW LINES IN Pl'TKN'sK OF
Till-: VILLAGE
(Special to Vlrglnlan-Pilot.)
Wlnfall, N. (.'., June 23.? The bur
lesiiue of the 2H;h instant, written by
some unknown humdrum, on our thriv?
ing little town, Wlnfall, is quite in
signiflcant and uncalled fur. The writer
said, "Wlnfall was one of those typical
little cross-road villages that abound
throughout the South. ' He must ima?
gine all this, for 1 do not suppose he
has been far enough from home to see
much of the South, but would Booncr
think he is a loiterer nround some
drinking saloon. And as for tiie "mer?
chants," they can take care of them?
selves; they are able to sell anything,
ranging from Jcwa-hnrps to sardines,
up to the best and finest manufactured
goods, "fin a hot Summer day" (you
must know by yourself how It is with
others) "reclining upon goods boxes
and rudely constructed benches." We
let you know that we yet have n few
easy chairs in our town, ami are not
compelled to recline on "goods boxes
.and benches" entirely. "The ceaseless
ticking of n telegraph Instrument from
tiie railroad BTaTT?TT, that has I' Mind it.
way lo this Isolated coiner of the
earth." is caused only by the same
current that makes the telegraph in?
strument of Hertford tick. As for "the
humming of the bees," I do not think
there are nny In our town. We ure
financially able to purchase honey when
we wish it. I guess yen would be glad
of some of our clucking hens baked,
nfier you have awakened from your
drowsy stupor late in the afternoon,
probably interrupted by "the excited
barking of u pock of village dogs."
Now, in conclusion, 1 will compare
you to the bitter part of the 12th verse,
10th chapter of Ecclcslnstes: "The lips
of a fool will swallow up himself."

Hertford, X. C, June 2!".?Warrants
were sworn out yesterday against C.
E. Burke and a clerk of the Central
Drug Company for the unlawful saJe
of whiskey. It Is claimed that said
Burke bought of the Central Prug
Company a half pint of whiskey which
he afterwards sold to another party
who proceeded to make improper use of
It according to the prohibition law.
which prevails in Hertford. The drug
company claim that they have not vio?
lated the law, but that the whiskey was
sold on a prescription from a practic?
ing physician. At a preliminary hear?
ing the defendants were held in bond
of $.ri0 to await action of the grand
Jury.
