GHARGED WITH FORGERY.
Uupleasant Plight of Bright Youth who Claim? to be From Greensboro. A handsome, bright-eyed bov, who said he was 16 years old and gave his name as Henry lulton, and his address as Greensboro, N. C , was arrested last night at the first precinct station suspected of trying to pass worthless checks. When he was searched a num ber of checks of the Norfolk Bank far Savings and Trusts, of Nor folk, Va., were fcund in his pock ets Most of the checks were blank, but several of them had been filled out for sums ranging from $5 to $10. According to the boy he had made no effort to have any of them cashed. After an hour of sweating Ful ton said that before coming to Washington last Saturday he had been living in Norfolk for about three weeks. Inspector Board man wired to the chief of police at Norfolk inquiring if a boy was wai ted in that city for passing bogus checks. Several hours la ter he received a telegram in re ply stating that a number of small checks on the Norfolk Bank for Savings and Trusts had been forged iii that city by a boy an swering Fulton’s description, and to hold the lad. The boy emphatically denies that be is guilty of forgery and is indignant at his arrest. When arrested Fulton was well supplied with funds and faultlesslv dress ed.—Washington special to Char lotte Observer. The “Mob Arrested.” The honor of North Carolina has been redeemed, the outraged dignity of the State has been sat isfied, and the mob whereof Gov ernor Glenn spoke has been “ar rested and identified” by the tri al, conviction and sentence of one lone ex-convict named Hall. Gaze on the culprit and you will see in him the five thousand howling outlaws who defied the State sol diery, stormed the county jail, dragged out therefrom three ne groes and hanged them to a tree. For doing all that alone and sin gle-handed, Hall will go to the penitentiary for fifteen years. You see, he was a jail bird any how, had no friends to speak of, and as somebody had to be made a scape goat of, he wras “arrested and identified” as the mob. It was an easy matter to get a jury to convict him, and the other 4,999 “good citizens” who trampl ed on law and order will be lost in that, indefinable haze which every now and then envelopes the judicial machinery. Oyez ! Oyez ! “God reigns and the law is still supreme! ” Or' course. And “the mills of the gods grind slow ly, but they grind exceedingly fine.” Tubbyshore, tubbyshore! So fine did they grind that out of a harvest of five thousand, a mob consisting of one ex-convict was ground out.—Asheville Citizen. Gold Nuggets Galore. J. Wilson Miller, of Sardis, Crab Orchard township, was in the city yesterday. Recently he has found a half dozen beautiful gold nuggets in his fields. He was showing one yesterday that he thinks is worth at least $15 and it is a beauty. Any ordinary man could see that it was a bit of pure gold, Mr. Miller was try ing to find some miner, who knows his business, to examine his place and search for a regular veins. There is much gold in this county if it could be found in workable quantities. Much money has been made here by gold mi ners in days gone by and much more will be made in time to come. Gold hunters are turning their attention to the mines of the county. Mr. Miller is not a mi ner; he knows nothing about gold, except in coins such as he gets for cottou. Tho pretty piece of gold that he had yesterday weighed an ounce. He had others just as attractive but not so large.— Charlotte Observer, ^\a/w ve/ \tu \a/ \ft/ ^\a/ si/ \a/ \a/ n*/ na/ Ni/i REFRIGERATORS COUCHES | | I AM HEADQUARTERS FOR | a Mid-Summer Furniture, j (j OUR LINE IS MORE COMPLETE THAN EVER | THE LARGEST STOCK j | — AND- | h Most Varied Assortment * is now ready for your inspection. | Furniture Repairing: \ uiture repair work and iuvite you to give us a trial. ^ W.
