OLD PISTOL IS FOUND
WHILE MAKING REPAIRS
WAS BENEATH FLOOR IN
THE BAILES STORE
IS AN OLD MAKE
And Was Evidently Thrown Away
Hurriedly By Someone Many,
Many Years Ago.
Yesterday morning while tearing
away part of the old floor in l?e
Dalies' Blore room on No;lh Main
street which has been occupied by
the Piedmont & Northern ticket ofllco
II. D. Masters fourni au old pistol,
very much corroded and looking us if
it had been lost or discarded for u
number of years.
Tho pistol was found in the south
west corner of thc building wlierc lt
had been evidently thrown or bidden
away by means of putting It down an
opening in ibo brick wall extending
from beneath tho flooring and which
was for the purpose of ventilation
Mr. Masters stated yesterday that he
was having sonic old nubbls? cleaned
away in this corner when the pistol
The gun ls of thc old type of small
finn arms and evidently was in uso
a number of years ago. Hob Jackson,
the negro who ls making the mortar
for the repair work on the building,
stated that the Bailes store robin,
formerly own?d by C. A. Reed, was
built about 3i> years ago, and that he
also helped in that work. It is
thought that the pistol was thrown
away not so many years after the
building was finished.
All of tho chambers of the gun are
loaded except the one over the barrel.
This leads to the boiler that the pis
tol was throWn away immediately a.'
ter it was fired. Thc old gun was
viewed by numbers of people yester
day and all had some solution to of
fer for its being found where it was.
It was thrown away, for it would have
been impossible for anyone to have
ever recovered it without taking up
tvo floor. Many nf those who saw
the pistol yesterday morning stated
that they believed that someone
threw lt down the hole In the wall of
the building after he bad shot some
ono in order that it mlgv.it not be
found or "ila person.
