SH00TIN6 AT SPENCER.
Man Objects to Attentions to His Wife and Quarrel Results. East Spencer was the scene of a shooting affair Sunday afternoon and only bad marksmanship pre vented someone being killed, Jas. Keesler an employe of the Spencer shops was the one who be gan the shooting and got shot and Deputy Sheriff Beasley returued the fire in self defense. Keesler is seriously wounded in the arm and hip. His wound is not r. garded as dangerous unless some complications set in. From persons who claim to be familiar with 1he circumstances leading up to the shooting, it is learned that Beasley was at the home of the other man, the latter being at work and his wife at home Keesler has objected to the visits of BeaBley and a friend in forming him that Beasley was at his house, he went over there. Beasley was leaving the house when the other man approached. Keesler called to Beasley, warning him that he was going to shoot. He opened fire and Beasley did likewise about the same time. The latter’s aim was better than Kees ler’s, and he escaped unharmed. Beasley at once lett and went over to Spencer. He was seen by several persons there during the afternoon. He called at the house of a friend to consult him as to whether he would better surrender to the officers, or leave. About 5 o’clock he visited the home of an other friend but did not find him at home. Soon after the shooting SheritY McKenzie and some of his depu ties, as well as several of the p - lice force, were out on a hunt for Beasley but were unable to cap ture him He, however, had made up his mind to surrender and sent word to SheritY McKenzie accord ingly. He was arrested by the sheriff Monday morning and after a preliminay hearing was placed under a $500 bond to await court, Jas. D. Dorsett being his bonds man. Mr. Beasley has been a courage ous and able officer and has made arrests where men of less grit would have failed. He claims that Mrs. Keesler sent for him which accounts for his being at the Keesler home. Humanity is week, there are few who are without fault, and while none of the participants are alone responsible, the affair is unfortu nate for all concerned. The case many be settled out of court. John Flemming Captured. John Fleming a negro who kill ed his wife in Lunenburg, Va., March 7tb, and has Bince been in hiding, was captured in Davie county early this morning by Deputy Sheriff J. H. Mingis, of Woodleaf. Mr. Mingis was on the hunt for another man and called at the house of Jim Clement in Davie county, where he found Fleming in bed. He had no trouble in making the arrest. The prisoner was brought to Salisbury this morning and placed in jail to await instructions from the Vir ginia authorities. There was a reward of $35 offered for Fleming’s capture. Fjeming is a bad charac ter and is quite well known among the officers. This arrest speaks well for Mr. Mingis’ vigilance and ability as an officer. He had not seen Flem since he was a small boy, but re cognized him at once and there waB no delay in making the capture. Stop That Cold To check early colds or Grippe with “Preventics" means sure defeat for Pneumonia. To stop a oold with Preventics is safer than to let it run and be obliged to cure it afterwards. To be sure, Pre ventics will cure even a deeply seated cold, but taken early—at the sneeze stage—they break, or head off these early coldq. That's sorely better. That's why they are called Preventics. Preventics are little Candy Cold Cores. Vo Qnlrv lne. no physio, nothing sickening. Klee for the children—and thoroughly safe too. If you feel chilly, if you sneeze, if you ache all over, think of Prevention Promptness may also save half your usual sickness. And don’t forget your child, il there is feverishness, night or day.

INTERESTING SUIT. Morganton Hospital Officials to be Made Defendants in Civil Case. The suit begun in Catawba Su perior Court against the State Hospital at Morganton, mentim of which was made in to-day’s Observer, has excited a great deal of interest here. Your correspond ent called on C. H. Armfield, a d - rector of the hospital, and was in formed that the suit is against W. P, Rader and Superintendent John McCampbell and the execu tive committee of the board of di rectors of the State Hostital, W. P. Rader beiug the father of Lon uie W. Rapor, the young man who did the killing, aud is, therefore, made a party to the suit. Mr. Armfield, in discussing the case, said: “Lonnie W. Rader was admitted to the State Hospital January 21, 190S. Soou after liis admission members of his family began to beg for his reloase, especially urg ing that it should be done on ac, count of the condition of his mother, who was much distressed because of her sou’s absence aud who was herself in danger of be coming insane on account of brooding over the matter. After much sutercession on the part of Rader’s relatives and friends he was released as improved. This was unwillingly agreed to by Su perintendent McCampbell because Rader was much improved by his short stay there. But on taking into consideration that his con duct has been entirely peaceable while a patient in the institution and there being nothing in his pre vious history which indicated that he was dangerous or liable to do damage to himself or others, Su perintendent McCampbell linally recommended his discharge and the executive committee discharg ed him. After remaining at home six or seven mouths, during which time he showed no signs of men tal trouble, Rader stabbed Mis9 Bollinger, the account of which unfortunate occurance appeared in the papers of the State.”—States ville special to Charlotte Observer. [it will be remembered mat shortly after Rader was released from the hospital, he attended a church service. A miss Bollinger, who was a former sweetheart of Rader, was at the organ playing, as the congregation was passing out of the building. Without giv ing any intimation of his purpose, Rader walked up to the girl and stabbed her to death. Ed ] Four-year-old Boy Burned to Death. .Tames, the four-year-old sou of C. J. Karriker, who lives fcur miles west of Salisbury, on the Lincolton road, was burned to death yesterday morning. Mr. Karriker conducts a store in his neighborhood, and it had been only a short time before that the boy was in the store, when the barn was found to be on fire. The parents went to the barn and when the flames had consumed most of the upper portion of the baru, they were horrified to see the burning body of their sou fall through the upper fl )or. Owing to the iiitenso heat they were com pelled to stand and see the boy roasted in the flames, The funer al was held to-day at Concordia Lutheran church. The parents have the sympathy of a large cii» cle of friends. A calf aud a lot of roughness was also burned. Dangerous Proceedings The city ord nance which pro* hibits the driving of cattle, hogs and horses and mules through the streets untied, was violated again to day when a largo herd of bulls and cows were driven through the | main streets. This has gotten to : be habiiual and the law, like many of them, is simply ignored both by the violators and the officers. We suppose this kind of violation will continue until a drove of th9se animals makes an effort to escape and, in doing so, will run over eomo women and children, I frighten horses and do considera ble d image. Then, as was the | case when Conductor Wiggins was shot, it will be announced in big | headlines: “Mayor Boyden Says | the Lav.- Must be Enforced.” ! MRS. THEO, F, KLUTTZ IS DEAD.

The average Southerner is a sufferer of this health destroying parasite which destroys the red bloood cells producing an impoverished con dition of the blood; characterized by extreme pallor, general debility, weakness, loss of vigor, lack of ambition, and general undermining of vitality.
