CONCORD AND CABARRUS COUNTY.
'Concord Times, June 9th. S Another R. F. D. route has been recommended to from Mt. Pleasant, and it is expected that the service will begin in two or three months. The route wAHl go from Mt. Pleasant to Mission, Lambert, Tucker and Leading, then back to starting point. A small child of-John Fletcher, of the Cabarrus Mill, was run over last Tuesday by Mrs. R. 0. S Miller’s buggy. The child ran out in front of the buggy just as it passed, and both wheels passed over it. Fortunately the wheels had rubber ties and the child was not hurt much. John T. Goodman, whose bottl ing works at Albemarle were burned Sundry night, returned to Concord Tuesday. He says he will rebuild the works at Albe marle. The loss was about $1,400, $800 insurance. He thinks the house was accidentally set on fire by some people who were in there stealing. Rev. T. L. Triplett, a well known Methodist minister, died suddenly last Saturday at his home in Mooresville. He was 75 years of age, and was superanuat ed. Mr. Morrison Fetzer, who fell 70 feet in a Miama mine shaft laBt Thursday, is getting along as well as could be expected. He is badly bruised and very sore, but it is believed that there are no in teral injuries. Mrs. H. M. Barrow returned last Saturday afternoon from Sal isbury, where she had been for treatment in the Sanitorium. We &re glad to note the fact that she is much improved. Concopd Titties, June 13th. One day last week a Concord lady, while standing near the well at her home, saw a chicken fly up on till© VYoli Tlie O ll IO ll o 11 struck the bucket, knocking it in the well. This, of course, caused the windlass to revolve. At the first revolution the handle hit the chicken on the head, killing it instantly. This is a true bill. Mrs. Frank Isenhour, of No. 4 township, died last Thursday, aged about 60 years. Her hus band and two children survive her She was a faithful member of the Lutheran church for many years. The interment was made Friday at Enochville. Last Sunday the centennial ser vices were held at the First Pres byterian Church, and the pro gramme was carried out exactly as published in The Times several weeks ago. The weather was fine, and a large audience, probably 1,000 people, assembled in the handsome new church to attend the services. No services were held at the Central and Forest Hill Methodist Churches. The sermon in the morning was preached by Rev. Dr. Ephraim II. Harding, pastor of the Presbyter ian church at Milton. Dr. Hard ing was pastor of the church here about 40 years ago, when the con gregation worshipped in the little building now used as a warehouse in rear of the city hall. J. A. Reid, colored, of Mt Pleasant, while ploughing last Wednesday, was struck in the. stomach by the plow handles (caused by the plow striking a root) and received internal injur ies from which he died Friday. He was 35 years old. R. W. Bigger, of Flows, has for the past two years been exper imenting with Irish potates, ai d ^has, by actual results, proven that farmers need not go north to ’sir planting potatoes. In tg of 1904 he planted ^ern potatoes. From ^ed from this plant l^gain last fall, and ' ^>wu potatoes he spring, and L^tch of this ^arge as a ^props in i _k Enforca Ihe Watts Law. The Monroe Journal makes a suggestion regarding the failure of county officials in certain sec tions of the state to enforce the Watts law which is worthy of serious attention. If there is a positive lawr on the statue hooks and the county officers ignore it and refuse to make effort to bring t > punishment .those -knowingly vacating it w'hv should not the grand juries take the matter up and indict those county officers who so flagrantly neglect their duties and violate their oaths of office? That paper is riyhb in its declaration that the governor is chief executive officer of the state and that it is his duty to Bee the subordinate executive officers do their duty in this respect. If the sheriffs and other officers in some counties are wiuKiiJg aiiuia viuia* tion of the law it is the governor’s duty to see that they go to work to suppress this lawlessness or have them punished through the grand juries. The Journal «ays • A special from Carthage, Moore county, tells of a stir there over alleged illicit liquor traffic and of efforts United States officials are making to enforce the law. The state authorities it is added are doing notfiing. Thus the evidence is accumulating that .in many sections of North Carolina the Watts and Ward laws are dead letters.—Charlotte Observer. In our primer days we were taught that it was the business of the executive department of the government to see that the laws were enforced. It was also stated that the governor was the chief executive of the state and the sheriff the chief of his county. *Has all this been changed? If it hasn’t, why is it not the business of the solicitors and grand juries to indict the sheriffs for mak ing fio attempt to arrest the law breakers.—Wilmington Messen ger. -►— • — -- Southern Boys in Demand. The following item was clipped from the “Live Topics About Town” column of the New York Sun of a few days ago: “The men most in demand now as clerks for apartment hotels are young Southerners who have come to New Yrork to live. They do not always intend to go into oc cupations of that kind, but seem to drift there by natural selec tion. Most of them have good manners by nature and the suavity that is so often the pos session of the men from below Mason and Dijon’s line. What ever the cause of it may be, these young immigrants to New York | very readily find such employ ment.” Southern boys are coming into their own wherever they go nowa days. The young men who attend lectures and take courses at the educational institutions of the North rank with the first. “An ounce of disinfec tion is better than a pound of cure.”— Up-to-date Proverbs.
