The fourth of July is gradually becoming moro of a day to cele brate throughout this section than heretofore. The day will be celebrated at Rockwell; Kluttz and Meuius' school house, near China Grove, at Union Church, and possibly other points ip the county on Saturday, July 3rd. When we see a business mau asking for patronage on circulars he has had printed out of the city we loose all interest in advocating the purchase of supplies from home merchants. It seems to us, the next best thing to advocating the purchase of all possible sup plies from the home merchant, would be to advocate that all good citizens who want to see theii town grow, refuse to buy anything from the man whose advertising matter is printed beyond the bor dsrs of his home town. There is no excuse for such conduct in Sab isbury. Wiaecoff Has a Sale. As may be seen by a large ad, ii today’s paper A, W. WinecofT is _conducting a very attractive, bar gain-giving sale. This sale will continueJor several days yet and it might be worth while to look over his ad. and give him a call You can hardly find a place wher. you will be given more courteous treatment or better goods foi your money. Winecoff’s sales art always attractive to those win seek big, genuine bargains. The First Cotton Bloom. Monday morning, June :28th, we were shown the first cotton blos som for Rowan county, so far as reported to this office, ft was brought to this office by J. A. Sloop, the popular mail carrier, and was grown by Abe Torrence, a worthy, hard working Negro, who farms four miles from Salisbury, in Litaker township, near Mr. Sloop’s residence. Prizes won by honest toil are always the most Commendable. Big Lot Sale. It may seem a little off to have a land sale just at this particular time, but such is, nevertheless true. Aud why not, right now is prob ably the best time for several years past in which to purchase real estate. The West Virginia Land Co,, as may be seen by their big ad on the last page of this paper is responsible for this enterprise, aud E. R. Morrow is managing the gams. You can see him at the Empire Hotel, -- • • Franchise Granted. It is learne d from the Concord Tribute, of recent date that the Salisbury citizens, who are enter eBted in a proposed street car line for Concord, have been grant ed a franchise. It will be remem bered that the matter was held up temporait, but it seems that at the board of alderman of Concord all objections were removed. There was Home struggling on the part of those opposed to the franchise, but the Satisbnry men won out. One condition of the franchise is that a actual work must be commenced on the line in sixty days. Pain anywhere stopped in 20 minutes sure with one of Dr. Shoop’s Pink Pain Tablets. The formula is on the 25c box. Ask your Doctor or Druggist about this formula I Stops womanly pains, headache, pains anywhere. Write Dr. Shoop, Racine, WD., for free trial to prove value.—Coruelison & Cook. IN MEMORIAM. Francis Johnstone Murdoch. - y* 1 At a meeting of the veBtry of Saint Luke’s Church, Salisbury, N. C., held Thursday evening, June 24, 1909, the following minute was unanimously adopted : With heartfelt sorrow, the ves try gives expression to the univer sal grief of the Parish on account of the death of the beloved Rector of Saint Luke’s Church, Francis Johnstone Murdoch. Now that he has left US; we begin to realize how entirely the parish and the other congregations under his charge de pended and leaned upon him His business capacity was remarkable, and he left nothing for another to do t.hnt. he could do himself. Thoughtfulness and consideration for others was his distinct charact eristic. He was a man of positive opinions and convictions, and he was fearless in expressing them. His heart was as loving and tender as a child’s. He seemed to b * shy and reserved in his manner and often absent minded; but he was easily approached They who knew him best loved him most. Men of every faith and of no faith frequently consulted him about matters of consience and personal religion ; and none who thus sought hiB counsel and advice failed to receive comfort. He was a good man and was continually and ! quietly going about doing good We believe he aided in educating and training more hoys and young men for the ministry and for other useful vocations than any one now living in the State. Not even hie family knew how much he was al ways doing to help his fellow men. In rendering aid, he knew no dis tinction of race cr creed. Those of us who were intimately associat ed witlr him knew of many of hie good deeds; but God alone know* the whole extent of them. ins me as a soldier had muon to do in moulding his character. At the age of fifteen, on Apiil l'7, 1861, he enlisted as a private in Company E of the celebrated Bethel First North Carolii a ll -gi ment. In February, 1867), in Charleston, S. C., the rank of Lieutenant was conferred upon him for special services rendered . He was a brave Confederate sol dier and was passioately devoted to (he cause of theConfedi racy. The personal influence he ex erted was far greater than appear ance indicated. No sacrifice was too gr* at for him to make in be half of a friend. He would have been willing to lay down his life for his faith in Christ, for his life was hid with Christ in God. All who habitually listened to bis sermons agree that ho was pre eminent as a preacher. We doubt whether tho Diocese of North Carolina ever produced a man more gifted or more intellectual. If he had desired preferment, he might have attained the highest honors tho Church could give. He had many of the character istics which would have made him a great Bishop. In this Paris and county, and in every congregation where he min istered, he laid foundations broad and deep. Other men may build upon these foundations and reap the fruit of his labors. His life was an incessantly busy and ac five one, bat not long enough to suable him to carry out his plans, lie was taken away suddenly, but we feel sure he was ready lor the cull. Francis Johnstone Murdoch was born in Buncombe County, N. C.,s March 17th, 1840; confirmed in Asheville, Sept. 18, 1864; licensed as layreader, Feb. 8th, 4807 ; or dained deacon in St, Luke’s Church, Salisbury N. C., Sept. 17 1868; ordained priest, in Eden ton, N. C., May 8, 1870. He was confirmed, licensed as lay-reader, and ordained deacon and priest by Bishop Atkinson. He mi red upon his duties as Reetorof ihis Parish on St. Peter’s Day, June 29, j 1872, and continued as Rector for ! thirty-seven years. He represent ed the Diocese in the last seven General Conventions. The de grco of S. T. D. was conferred up on him in 1890 by the University of the South. He died at the Murdoch home in Charleston, S, C., on Monday, June 21, 1909, at 11:15 p, m In the death of our pastor, each member o1 the vestry feels a per sonal loss. To the widow and family of the deceased, wo give our deepest and tenderest sympa thy; and we pray that God w;ll com ort and bless them in this their time of trial and distress. They know and we know how faithfully he labored for Christ a'd his Church. May he rest in peace, and let light perpetual shine upon him, John S. Henderson, S. W.; Steph en F. Lord, J.
