“The Black Boys ot Cabarrus.”
Concord Times, September 4,1902
Mr. J. M. W. White has in his
possession a poem clipped from
the Concord Gazette of April 4,
1857, and he has made a copy of
it for bur readers. The clipping
is as follows:
Mr. Editor: It will readily be
seen that the following aims not
at the dignity of epic poetry but
simply to relate in rude rhyme
in the form of a ballad, an old
and almost forgotten incident ‘‘I
tell the tale as ’twas told to me”
by R. Kirkpatrick, Esq., of Rooky
THE BLACK BOYS OF CABARRUS.
in seventeen and seventy-one
The Regulators rose, sir,
To have their freedom and their fun,
And Tryon to oppose, sir.
Now, Tryon he was hard of head,
And liked not to be thwarted ;
So needing powder, flint and lead,
His agents off he started.
His agents straight to Charleston went,
And showed Sir Tryon’s orders,
And when the money was all spent
They started for headquarters.
The teamsters soon to Charleston
And soon they did unload, sir,
And when they had received their gold
Right back they took the road, sir.
And now ’twas hard indeed to find
About thatigallant town, sir;
A single man who had the mind
To haul the baggage down, sir.
Some wagons were procured at length
By Mosey Alexander,
Who served the King with all his
And was Sir Tryon's Ander.
Now, Jimmie White and Billy White
And Johnny White—all brothers,
Did in a solemn league unite,
With gallant Bob Caruthers.
Besides these four James Ashmore,
Ben Cochran and Josh Hadley,
Who if they did betray them swore
That they should die most sadly.
These gallant few, traditions say,
To blow’ up Tryon’s store sir,
Resolved—and in this way to pay
With interest all old scores, sir.
The sun was sinking in the w’est,
When these few up on foot sir,
Of Tryon’s baggage went in quest,
With faces smeared with smoot, sir.
They pushed ahead with all their miglit
Until they reached the hill, sir,
From which they saw the old man
A coming from the mill, sir.
Now they were very glad, indeed,
When they this chance espied, sir
As very much they stood in need
Of horses for to ride, sir.
Yes, the Black Boys were very glad
To *ee this happy sight, su\
So the young Whites approached their
And ordered him to light, sir.
By dint of argument and threat,
The boys at last succeeded,
The old man’s horses stout to get
Then on their way proceeded.
And now the wagons hove in sight,
* The teamsters nothing fearing,
Ah ! little did they dream that night
That they would lose their gearing
Forbear, my muse, you cannot tell
Your genius is too light, sir,
To tell the misery that befell
Them on that awful night, sir,
Suffice’t to say that when daylight
Illumed this mighty nation
It saw the wagons—awful sight—
All blown to shatteration.

Vo Sebamp^s Tobacco
Three ways are used by farmers
for curing and preparing their to
bacco for the market; namely sun
cured, air cured and flue cured.
The old and cheap way is called air
cured; the later discovery and im
proved way is called flue cured.
In flue curing the tobacco is taken
from the fields and racked in bafns
especially built to retain heat and
there subjected to a continuous high
temperature, produced by the direct
heat of flame heated flues, which
brings out in the tobacco that
stimulating taste and aroma that
expert roasting develops in green
coffee. These similar processes give
to both tobacco and coffee the cheer
ing and stimulating quality that pop
ularizes their use.
The quality of tobacco depends
much on the curing process and the
kind of soil that produces it, as ex
pert tests prove that this flue cured
tobacco, grown in the famous Pied
mont region, requires and takes less
sweetening than tobacco grown in
any other section of the United States
and has a wholesome, stimulating,
juicy, full tobacco taste that satisfies
tobacco hunger. That’s why chewers
prefer Schnapps, because Schnapps
cheers more than any other chewing
tobacco, and that’s why chewers of
Schnapps pass the good thing along
—one chewer makes other chewers,
until the fact is established that
there are more chewers and more
pounds of tobacco chewed to the
population in states where Schnapps
tobacco is sold than there are in
those states where Schnapps has not
yet been offered to the trade:
A ioc. plug of Schnapps is more
economical than a much larger ioc.
plug of cheap tobacco. Sold at 50c.
per pound in 5c. cuts. Strictly 10
and 15 cent plugs.
