TELL HEIR TO AVOID ROAD DUTY.
A colored "cxhorter" wLo was
"warned OUL" to work the road near
Glenn's bridge informed the road boss
that he was exempt according to the
statute. The law was read to him and
when they got to where "regnlarly
ordained minizters of the gospel"
were exempt he exclaimed, '-That's the
point, Brother - - is the regular
miniszer, ani when le ain't here I
falls heir to his place, y.u -ce." But
they fell upon the heir and put him to
work, statu'e or no statute.

W. WV. K. ichin ebara n and WV. G.
The chairman statcd the object of
the meetiinr and read a letter from
Capt. U. R Brooks urging the forma
tion of camps throughout the State.
By a unanimous vote the organiza
tion was named "Camp Raing," in
honor of galant James C. Rains,
color sergeant of the Sixth Regiment,
S. C. V., who was killed in the trenches
The following members were then
WV. WV. Ketchin, J. A. Uinnant,

Children Cry for Pitcher's Castoria. r
The much di-cussed elec ion of the m
20th of August has come and gone. th
The peop'e of both factions seem to ai
be tired of politics and elect ions. The hi
negroes have little or no interest in h(
them, if the appeat ances on Tuesday of
are to be c'nidered as a criterion. w
Formerly when an election was L
about to be held there was a club C
meeting, speech making, and couiiers
appointed the night before. Men were L
seen on the stree: s eat ly in the morn- ai
ing. But utch was not the case this la
time. One reason why no one ap- L
peared so early was that the hours for te
opening have been changed from 7 to i
8 o'clock. But up to 9 o'clock there fo
were very few people in from the til
country and very few co'ored people P1
on Il.e sti eets.
The vote cast here was only 340, and C
for a period of nearly one hour there hi
was no one on the steps but the con- hi
stables. The voting practically c'osed, d(
but renewed again about half hour M
before the closing of the poils. The H
election on the wvhole was a very quiet 1z
one. Tuere was one or two quarrels bi
but no abuse by either pat ty. The m
managers say that some who cime up, ci
and who were thought to be in favor tr
of the Leigue ticket, would pick up a at
division ,icket and vote it. Some it- a
telligent colore.1 voters who could read sh
would pick up a division ballot, read lr
it, and then deposit it in the box. T
Then the count showed that not a few
voted for two men of each ticket. One to
old colored man came up with what he E
thought was a registration ticket, but A
on examination it proved to be a bill
of laeiin. fU>r a hog he had shipped t0 ha
his son itn Chailotte. When the mat- ali
ter was explained to him he remarked: lic
"I tole de ole 'oman to git 4 light; I A
kn>wed she could nut see so early in Et

tioa told us that there was .500 negroes
present, but tl.ey hsd no t:ckets. They A
ad the tickets we re to have been sent
to White Oak, so he was informed, m:
but they did not get them.m
A t Gladden's Grove the vote was 84 m
for the League ticket and 90 for the be
division ticket, making a majority of
M* for the League.
At Centreville the League ticket re
ceived 53 votes and the division ticket 24
45. It was impossible to hear from w
Monticello and Feaserville-the only A
places trom which we had no report. A
If the above reports are correct the
vote, without Feasterville and Monti-*.
cello, stands 522 for the League and -
786 for division-a majority of 264.
The chances are that Mlonticello will
send at least 125 majority and Feaster
vlle 150 (thcse are conservative fig
gzres). which will make the majority
for division in the county about 540
