Hundreds Visit Cage at Halifax
Where Curiosity is Held
A queer looking creature reported
found wandering in the swamps near
Littleton, has atrtacted hundreds of
curious persons to Halifax in the past
week, where he is confined in the
county jail.
In the daytime he is allowed to
roam in a wire enclosure between the
jail and courthouse, and here the
crowd gazed at him as he jabbered
and danced and ate.
Many stories were abroad about him.
and the term “monkey man” has been
applied in all cases. He is a negro, ap
parently mentally deficient, with a
head shaped very much like a monk
ey. He has worn shoes very little,
altho 30 years old, and his feet are
perfectly flat. Clothing was scarce
with him until some of his friendly
jailers fixed him up with decent ap
The most popular story told is that
he was a wild man in the swamps
near Littleton and was caught in a
bear trap, but the truth of the mat
ter is that he has always lived in t'.iat
section and is well known there. But
his people could do nothing with him
and were afraid something woul hap
pen to him in the swaftnps, so he was
brought to Halifax jail with the hope
that he could be placed in some state
He cantalk a little and eat plenty.
The crowds visiting the cage have fed
him mostly on peanuts which he eats
hulls and all, with great gest. He does
not know how to smoke a cigarette,
which may be to his favor.
'"There is also a story about a cir
ciu sideshow offering $700 for him.
This could not be traced and is prob
acy just another wild tale which has
sprung up since the monkey-man was

Our Industrial Growth Watched
Jealously hv Others, Says
j. T. Chase
Mill Expansion Planned; About
To Enter Prosperous Era
With Much Progress
A ngte of extreme optimism con
cerning the future of the Twin Cities
was struck by Mr. .1. T. Chase in an
address before the Kiwai is Club last
Thursday. We quote below various
;) jrtions of a most interesting speech.
“This is the industrial ecu',1 r of
Eastern Carolina -Rocky Mount has
'• ; railroad shops, Wilson its tobacco
■vr.wket, (lol i- boro a few smaU cot..
' mills, Kinston its new hi.to!, but
the progressiveness of Roan ok • Ra
pids and Rosemary anti our indu-.trial
growth are looked upon v.ilh I'.-int a
jealous eye by a!! the above towns.”
“Roarnke Rapids and Rosemary
have never been in l etter shape than
they are today. The Rmomarv and
Roanoke Mills are owned and manag
er by men who have broad and ex
tended visions for the future their
interests should be ours. Neva- should
there occur any discordant factor be
tween the mills and the people who
live here. The fine spirit of coopera
tion which exists should at all time s
be fostered. We hear nothing about
the usual summer shut down in the
mills—on the other hand, we hear ru
mors of expansion, more tenement
houses to be built, more people for
our place.”
“The building of a $7,000,000 hydro
development within one and one-half
miles of Roanoke Rapids is now as
sured. The power company appreciat
es the help already extended to it by
some of you to make this develop
ment. The moral support you gave
in the matter of securing land help
ed to make this work certain.”
“All ot those things convince me
that we are about to enter a most
prosperous period—one of definite
achievement, one of certain progress,
and back of all these events this Ki
wanis Club must stand—secure in its
position, serving as it should, and by
giving its entire support to th; many
events that are about to take place.”
“Besides the many other things wo
hope to do and the many things we
hould do, I’d like to see this Club take
hold of the suggested Boy Scout
movement. I expect, without over
estimating, that 150 red-blooded boys
are longing to have a Boy Scout or
ganization started, and we should not
fail them. It’s a big undertaking, but
not too big for this Club—i‘. has a de
finite need—"Be prepared” is the
scout motto, and we shou'd help every
boy in this his only time to prepare
himself—between the ages of V2. and
18. Let’s get behind this movement.”
“I believe in this Kiwanis Chib and
its officers, I believe in this entire
community, I believe we are better off
today than we were yesterday or last
year. I believe we wifi bo better a
year from now than we are today.”
