CONCORD AND CABARRUS COUNTY. Rilic if War of the Revolution. Young Rowan CounJe to Wed. Concord Times. June Uth. Wheat is ripe and looks good, aud is ready to harvest. Oats are very sorry, and I think they will be as scarce as frog hair. Corn is very small for this time of the year. Cotton is the sorriest I have seen it for many years aud I think the. bee raisers will sne us for their bees wearing themselves out hitting themselves against the ground trying to suck the cotton blossoms. Apples and peaches are no good this year, as there are not any. If nothing happens we will have plenty of blackberries after while.— Organ Church Cor.

The hook makes a beau tiful hat pin and Miss McCurdy is very proud of being the poses v sor of it. we regret to note tne serious illness with pneumonia of Jacob Dove, at his home below town.

Before leaving here for Sel ma to attend the funeral of Sena tor Morgan, Vioe President Fair banks denied a story which re cently caused wide comment in the Southern press. The 'story -was to the effect that Mr. Fair banks recently said in a speech at Chattanooga that the late Gener al Joseph Wheeler told President McKinley in Mr. Fairbank’s pres ence, when applying for service in the Spanish-American war, that the applicant had followed the Confederate flag uuder a mistake. "What General Wheeler said,” declared the Vice President, "was that under dictates of his con science he had fought once against the United States flag but now de sired to fight under it before he died.” Mr. Fairbanks said be regretted that what he had said at Chat tanooga had been garbled.—Bir mingham, Ala., dispatch.

SI AThSVILLE AND IREDELL COUNTY. Another ot the Ditch Cases Settled. Wheat Crop the Best for Years. Stateavlle Landmark, June 18tli. S. Carter Williams, of Yadkin ville, attorney for the heirs of Belvin Williams, colored, who lost his life in the sewer ditch cave-in in Statesville in March last, has agreed to accept $750 in settlement of all damages on account of the death of Williams Settlement had already been made with the heirs of Lee Mo ser, Arthur Grant and John Wood for the same amount, and it is understood that an agreement was reached some time ago for settlement on the same basis with the heirs of Riley Howard and Dillard Stockton, but these cases have not beeu closed. L. Benfield, white, was brought to Statesville yesterday by Po liceman Kerr, of Mooiesville, and placed in jail. A few weeks ago Benfield was placed- under bond for drawing a gun on another man. Saturday he got into other trouble and was about to leave town when his Burety had him ar rested. Benfield has be e n i n trouble before, having served a term on the chain gang. Keports generally agree tnat the wheat crop in this cection will be the best for years. A gentleman who Bells harvesting machinery and whose business it is to keep posted on the crop, says it will be the best in five years. Harvesting has begun this week. The corn crop is also reported looking well but the prospect for cotton is bad. It will do no good until there comes plenty of sunshine and warm nights. “Rev.” J. B. Naugle, who has been on the chain gang for about 18 months, who was chaplain of the camp, so to speak, and who in consideration of the “cloth” had been a trusty nearly ever since he had been on duty, de parted the camp without leave Sunday uight and his present ad dress is unknown. For the first time in about two years the cells of the county jail are without a single prisoner, the only occupant of the building be sides the family of jailer Con nelly being Lillie Chambers, col ored, who is serving a term of 18 mouths for shooting Tom Mere dith, but is not confined in a cell. Rev. Meek White, who recently accepted the pastorate of the New Stirling and Perth churches in this county, has moved his fami ly to Iredell from South Caroli na. They will occupy the par sonage at New Stirling. Side Lights on Happiness. The habit of happiness can be acquired. Begin each morning by resolv ing to enjoy something during the day. It may be in the sunrise, a child’s play and laughter, or a pretty touch of the landscape.. Learn to look in each experi ence which comes for a little pleasure. You will be surprised to find how many things that you thought commonplace and rather disagreeable possess either an amusing or instructive side. No matter how disagreeable a duty is, some happiness may be gotten out of it, even if it only the thought that by your efforts you are getting it out of the way. If the duty must be repeated continually you can get some comfort as well as happiness out of the fact that you are cultivat ing your patience and strength of will power, both of which are essential to happiness or success. —Columbus, 0., Dispatch.

Lexington, Va., June IS.—In response to an urgent invitation from the authorities of Washing ton and Lee University, former Governor Heywood, of South Carolina, who is an alumnus of the University, is in Lexington relative to the Lee centennial movement of which he consented to become the head. In view of Governor Heywood’s acceptance it has been decided to broaden the scope of the movement, which is a plan to suitably commemorate the centennial of General Lee’s birthday. It is proposed to make the movement national in scope and an advisory committee will be at once organized including sub-committees in the various states. It is proposed to ask the public for a subscription of $1, 300,000 which will be used with a view of broadening the scope of Washington and Lee University, not only as an expression of their admiration of the life and char acter of General Lee, but as a tes timonial, more especially of his services in the cause of educa tion as president of the institu tion endowed by Washington and administered by Lee the last five years of his life. Novel Contest for a Wife. Williams A Kirby, ofTiappe, has been building a fine new resi lience, and haB decided upon a novel method of providing a mis Iressfirit. When it is finished he is to give a big house warming, which has been arranged for the Fourth of July. On this occasion, it is said at the suggestion of the girls them selves, he will invite all the young women of Trappe to enjoy his hospitality, and the one who be haves the best and proves the most charming is to be his bride. The builders and decorators have pr mised to have everything ready for the glorious day and the neigh bin s have promised to sup ply the fireworks. Mr. Kirby will provide the ref reshments and entertainment, and as all the girls of Trappe are coming, the prettiest in Maryland, there will be a very lively contest for hus band and home.—Easton, Md., dispatch to Phila. Inquirer. Her Death Mysterious. Concord, June 22.—Last night train No. 29 on the Southern struck something on the track on a fiil near Harrisburg. The train was stopped and a search was made by the engineer, but noth ing could be found. The agent at Harrisburg was notified and, ac companied by a section man search was instituted for the ob ject which the train struck. About 1 o’clock the body of Miss Ella Huneycutt, the 16 w ar-old daughter of Mr. Calv u Huney cutt, of Harrisburg, was found. Earlier in the night the girl left home alone and her father had been out on the streets inquiring for her. As soon as her body was found, he was notified but, strange to say, he did not go to view it till a late hour in the night. There seems to be something mysterious about the death of the young lady and it is believed by many that she had been killed and placed on the track. Her body was consid erably bruised, both legs and an arm being broken.—Special to Charlotte Observer. -- Badly Mixed up. Abraham Brown, of Wintertou, F. Y., had a vory remarkable ex perience ; he says: “Doctors got badly mixed up over me; one said heart disease; two called it kid ney trouble; the fourth, blood poison, and the fifth stomach and liver trouble, but none of them helped me, so my wife advi ed trying Electric Bitters which are restoring me to perfect health. One bottle did me more good than all the five doctors prescribed.” Guaranteed to cure blood poison, weakness and all stomach, liver and kidney complaints, by all druggists, 60c. MINISTER RESIGNS. Reports Investigated Which Results In a Vindication of Character. Richmond, Va., June 20.—Fol lowing rumors of a sensational character, in which the name of a prominent young woman of Oak Grove is involved, the Rev J. A Sullivan, pastor of the Oak Grove Baptist church, has resigned from that pulpit. Sullivan was not at home this morning. Mrs. Sulli van could throw no light upon the matter. ’““'She sfTid that hus band, who was in Richmond, has accepted a call to the First Bap tist church ( f Washington, N. C. It was said by members of the church today that at a recent meeting of the board of deacons the matter alluded to came up for discussion, at which time the preacher was vindicated. Reso lutions of regret have been drawn up and signed by the deacons. Mr. Sullivan was the first pas tor of Oak Grove church, subse quently going to- the Baptist church at West Point, From the latter church he returned to his original church in October, 1905, where he was said to have accom plished great good, Mr. Sulli van will soon leave Virginia for Rocky Mount, where he will con- ' duct revival services. He will go < from there to take charge of his < new field in the town of Washing- ' ton, in that State. The most i diligent inquiries have failed to : disclose the name of the woman i whose name haB been connected with that of her pastor in the < sensational rumors.—Special to Charlotte Observer. • • Surgical Operation on Sky-Scrapers. Amputation is to be applied to the Singer building at Liberty street and Broadway. Its top is to be sliced off and three additional stories sandwich ed in between the seventh and eleventh floors. Work on the scaffolding began yesterday and a small army of men will be occupied night and day until it is completed, the un dertaking being confined to the original corner building, which is to be part of the monster 41 story structure now going up— the tallest office building in the world. According to Ernest Flagg, the architect, the slicing is necessary in order that the 11-story build ing shall couform in height and outline to the new 14-story addi tion. Instead of actually raising the four top floors inclosed under the mansard roof the structural ma terial will be removed in sections to the ground. The eighth, ninth and tenth floors will then be built on, after which the old mansard roof, inclosing the four addition al floors will be replaced section by section.—New York Herald.

Va.. June 19.— Just before the battleships Ohio, Iowa, Maine and Indiana sailed from Hampton Roads today for the Southern drill grounds off the Virginia capes, an order was post ed from the flagship, the Ohio, offering a reward of $50 for the body of Midshipman Heury Clay Murfln, the only one of 11 vic tims of the ill-fated launch of the battleship Minnesota, whose re mains have not been recovered. The Minnesota remained in the roads, and her boats, with these of the cruiser Brooklyn, battle ship Texas and monitor Minanto nomah and several government tugs are still searching for the body, but the absmce of the four battleships cripples the Navy De partment’s facilities and it was ieemed advisable to influence out riders to join in the search. From Norfolk comes the report ;hat at the Norfolk Navy yard it .s stated that the body of o'rdi- | lary seaman F. R. Plumblee has »ot been found. Before he left ( ‘or Washington yesterday, Rear | \dmiral Emory gave the Asso riated Press correspondent a copy if the officia1 list of bodies recov >red.

Are the Olii Traits Being Lost? s the caption of an editorial in ihe last issue of The World’s Work •elative to the new industrial life >f the South. It answers that ?ome of the finer things in the :ife of the Old South must give way and are giving way before the onward march of industrial progress. That is one danger that generally appears in the wake of commercial progress. Such pro gress, in its very nature, necessi tates the leaving behind of some things that were held dear under the old regime. It is to be hoped I he new life will not seriously im pair the reputation for courtesy and hospitality the South has throughout the world. This is ne thing that should be retained no matter how wealthy this sec tion may become and we believe it will be retained. The average visitor to the South is impressed by the courtesy aud kindly hospi tality of the people, in some other sections this courtesy and hospi tality do not exist in near the proportion that they exist here. The difference is one of those things that have always been creditable to the South.—Winston Sentinel. Cadet Drowned at Sea. Washington, June 19.—A dis patch was received at the Treasu ry Department today from Capt Reynolds, commanding the reve nue cutter Chase, which is now at Yorktown Va., reporting the drowning at sea of Cadet George B. Ramel, who fell overboard from the quarter deck rail and did not catch the life buoy or rope that were thrown within his reach. The life boat was immediately cleared 'away, but Ramel sank when it reached within a few feet of him and he did not rise to the surface again Ramel was ap pointed a cadet in the United States Revenue Cu*ter service September 17th, 190G, from New York and was 24 years of age This is the first case of drowning or indeed, of serious accideut to, a cadet since the establishment of the cadot service 25 years ago. -• • “This little pig went to market,” doesn’t amuse tonight.

One of the most prominent farmers in the county, a man of wraith and standing, while here yesterday expressed himself for cibly oh the way the town au thorities and the Lexington mer chants neglect the country peo ple in the matter of providing hitching places. He said, and said truly, there was no place and that it was very disagreeable to farmers to come to town, hitch their stock here and there and then be ‘‘cussed out” by people who object to their bitching. He declared he was going to make Salisbury and Spencer his market points. Sheriff Dnrsett returned Fri lay night from St. Louis, where ie went to buy horses and he did lot bring any with him. He tells is that the market is higher than le ever knew it to be. He saw 81 sar loads of bronchos, wild, un iroken horses, sell for from $00 o $80 a head. The market is rom $20 to $40 higher than when le made his last trip out there. Vccording to this, horse flesh is tbout as valuable as anything dse, in these days of high prices md prosperity. There is do question abo u t ‘blind tigers” doing a prosperous lusinesB in Lexington. They are lere. They don’t seem to be un >asy as they have not moved back rery far from the main road. Do ;he police know of their exist >nce? Everybody else does. Has ;he town gone to sleep on this luestion? Where is the Anti-Sa cou League? Where are the tem aerance forces? Have they all ?oue out of business to give the ‘blind tiger” full sway? Suits were instituted Monday igainst the Weuuonah Mills by Vliss Maggie L. Earnhardt and W. P. Gallimore, on account of ;he accident of the falling eleva ;or week before last. Miss Earu lardt is suing for $20,000 and Mr. Grallimore for perhaps $1,0Q0. f. M.

Dream Came True. High Point, June 21 —A strange occurrence has happen'd in connec tion with the story of the hiding here during the war of $6,000 worth of copper. For several nights a member of Mr. Schaub’s family has been dreaming of find ing copper ou the place and sure enough the other day Mr Schaub found a piece of copper sticking out of the ground. The next day he did the same thing and now High Point’s popular depot agent believes he has the sure thing on his premises, anyway the location of his residence is about at the distance the copper is said to have been hid from the depot. It is quite an interesting co-juci dence.—Special to Charlotte Ob server. / — Do Not Neglect the Ghildren. * At this season of the year the first unnatural looseness of a child’s bowels should have im mediate attention.

Jane 20th. J. D. Earnhardt, of Richfield, J R. Moss, of Pennington, have ads. elsewhere in this issue which speak for themselveB. Each has given his note to certain washing machine agents who have been working this county, and they came to Albemarle the early part of the week to take preliminary steps towards stopping negotia tion of their notes. Each says he will contest the matter before he will take up the notes. Mr. Earn hardt and wife gave their note tor $300. One of the agents, they al leged, offered to release the note for $175. Mr. Moss gave two notes for $250 each. He says the proposition was made by which he would be released upon pay ment of $200 upon the whole. Both men allege that they have not been treated right and that they have not received the quid pio quo. There are several others in the county, we are told, who have mortgaged their all in pay ment for washing machine rights at $500 each, who are very sore over the deal. The big blasts at Whitney are distinctly heard at this point, and no doubt several miles beyond. They make the old earth quake like an earthquake shock. Os car Wolfe, who works at one of the large drills, was home to spend Sunday, and he tells us that some of the large holes are bored to the depth of 35 feet, the diameter of the hole being 4 1-2 and 6 inches. To charge one it takes from six to twelve' hundred joints of dynamite. The work of excavation at the Palmerville end . of the large canal must be carried to the depth of 30 feet below what it is now. A change in the schedule of the Yadkin railroad has gone into ef fect. The morning train leaving Salisbury makes connection with the southbound. No. 11, on the Charlotte division. And the train going north from Notwood makes connection in the morning at Sal isbury with the train for Ashe ville. The connections are quite close, but give a convenience both as to mail and passenger service. Mr. and Mrs. F. M. Thompson, of Salisbury, were guests of Mrs. X>. D. King Tuesday and Wednes day. Mr. Thompson was looking around with a view to securing a location. H9 is well pleased with Albemarle and this section, and the town will extend him a most cordial welcoms should he decide to come. -- A BIG DEAL.
