GOSSIP FROMtAROUND FAITH. Faith a Good Place to Get Started, an old Soldier Dies Suddenly. W. M. Bame, superintendent of the Peeler, Borne & Co.’s granite works gave a turkey dinner to his friends recently. Venus was a mong the number. Mr, and Mrs. Lewis Ward in vited a few friends to a big holi day dinner and “wee” were in ev idence there also. Owing to the bad condition of the roads it is almost impossible to haul granite over to the rail road. Wages are so good here that if a man gets in one-fourth of his time he can have plenty to live on. It is almost impossible to get working people to chop wood here at any price. One man was offer ed two dollars per day to chop some stove wood, but refused the job. Everybody who can use a hammer goes into the granite quarries, as they pay so much bet ter wages than can be obtained at 1 ~ u j u _li_ V * J XMUVlj MUU TT Uv OHU U1UUXU them. Any young couple juBt begin ning their career would do well to come to Faith to live. It matters not how poor they might be they would find many friends here who would assist them, and if they were working people, it would not be long before they would have a plenty of everything. We know because we have seen it tried. L. A. Raney has gone to Char lotte to accept a position in a wholesale dry goods store of that place. If he hustles off goods there ^ y faster-: Kith he did here he will soon work himself to death. News has reached here that Eli S. P. Lippard, a farmer and old Confederate veteran, who lived near Mount Hope church, died very suddenly Sunday morning. Rev. F. M.

Goodman Sawmill Co. has finished sawing on Mr. Park’s lands and is preparing to move on the lands of O. O. Oddie, near Dunn’s mountain. Clarence Phillips has returned to Trinity college and Henry Park has returned to Mt. Pleasant, where they will enter school at these places. Mrs. J. M. Trexler, of this place, was called away last week to her mother’s bedside, who died near Lisk postoffice. Miss Clara Proctor gave a house warming on new year’s night in honor of Miss Tellie Brown, of China Grove, who visited Mrs. P. M. Phillips during the holidays.

THE FIRST ACCIDENT FOR STREET CARS. E. 0. Stallings Struck by a Street Gar and is Painfully Injured. Eugene 0. Stallings, who has been at work in Salisbury for the last week or two, but who lives on north Main street, just inside the corporate limits of Spencer, met with a serious accident late Sat urday evening. Mr Stallings had gone home on the street car and was put off at his home, but for some reason decided to sit down on the track whic he did and prob ably went to sleep, at any rate there is where the car, on return ing, some twenty or thirty min utes later found him and rudely disturbed his dreams. Gene was probably some three or four sheets in the wind and was some time in learning just what struck him. He was bruised up considerably, receiving sdveral servere cuts a bout the head. He was given im mediate medical attention and will probably be about again in a few days. Just why the motor man, with a large headlight on his car, did no see Mr. Stallings on the track is a mistery. Some months ago we called attention to the fact that the motorman spent to much of his time looking back in the car instead of ahead. Whether this will account for the accident or not we cannot say. P. A. Threatened with Pneumonia. Lyeriy, Jan. 15. The roads are very bad out this way. They are almost impassa ble. Our chain j.‘.ng force can not do much wOik these days; too much rs.ii>. Rev. N. D. Bodie has been very busy visiting the sick in his charge as pastor of Union and Chritiana churches. Wm. F. Ruftya'went hunting the other night and caught two fine opossums. We hope he will in vite the editor and the Hustler to help sample them. Some of our boys who have been attending school at Lenoir college, will get through with their studies by the last of January. There are a good number on the roll up there and we wish them much success. We are sorry to note that we have a great deal of sickness in our neighborhood. At present it keeps our doctors on the road very near all the time. Adam Smith had a very sick horse a few days ago, but a few doses of medicine from the Hust ler soon got him well again. C. M. Lyerly, our quarryman, has been employed to superintend the work of getting the rock out of the public road near here. He 1(1 ncrVlf. mon in fho PinSf nlflUfl 0 — --~0-£ P. A.
