Frank R. Brown has been offer
ed the position of one of the five
direstors of the North Carolina
Retail Merchants Association, also

tion committee. President
Broughton, of Raleigh, has written
Mr. Brown to this effect.
Luther M. Tesh, field secretary
of the Baracas, spoke to an inter
ested audience, last Thursday at
the Spencer Y. M. C, A .
The partnership which has ex
isted between Drs. H. L. Monk
and M. L. Smoot, of Spencer, has
been diBolved. Both physicians
will still practice in Spencer.
Cards have been received by
friends, bearing the following an
nouncement :
“Mr, and Mrs. S. H. Wetmore
invite you to be present at the
marriage of their daughter Mary
Americus to Oscar Talmage Nesbit
Wednesday evening, July the sev
enth, nineteen hundred and nine
at half past seven o’clock at Unity
Presbyterian Church Woodleaf,
North Carolina.
The Southern Hotel, near the
depot, has been purchased by W.
A. Blackwell, who will manage
the business.
During the month of June per
mits were issued for the erection
of buildings aggregating $129.00C
in value.
The reward of $25, which was
offered by the authorities of West
' Virginia, for the arrest of the
negro John Lucky, who killed his
wife in WeBt Tirginia, has been
sent to Sheriff McKenzie.
Several dealers here have come
to the front with the tax of $300
on the near beer business.
Most of the members of the
local fire department have gone to
Asheville, to attend the State
tournament of the firemen. The
Spencer Reel team left this morn
ing and will be on hand.
Sheriff McKenzie went to Char
lotte Sunday afternoon and
brought back John Freeman, who
is charged with retailing at East
Spencer. Freeman furnished a
$400 bond and was reieased from
custody. The hearing is to take
place to morrow.
Will Davis, just off the chain
gang, was employed Saturday
evening by M, A. Lemley, who
lives about two miles from town
on the old Mocksville road, has
again secured a busy job on the
road. He got up about 3 o’clock
Monday morning and having a
great desire for a bicycle belonging
to Mr. Lemley departed with it
without making settlement for
same or other arrangements. The
bicycle and Davis being misBed
Westal Simeson mounted a mule
and easily followed the track of
the wheel to the Toll Bridge,
where the negro was unable to
pass for lack of funds. Mr. Sim
eson took charge of the outfit and
brought Davis in to the sheriff.
Davis was before Judge Miller this
morning and was returned to the
roads for a period of six months,
J. C. Kizziah, a ponular young
man of Spencer, died in that place
Friday morning after an illness of
several weeks. The remains were
taken to Charlotte Sunday where
the interment took place, the
masonic fratornity having the
funeral arrangements in charge.
The deceased was employed in the
office of General Foreman Kadie,
at the Spencer shops. He was a
highly esteemed young man and
his death is universally regretted.
The Tax Fixed.
At. a recent ses-Bion of the board
of aldermen the tax on near beer
dealers was fixed at $800. There
was a strong sentiment for a $1C0
tax, four of the city fathers favor
ing this amount and four standing
out for the larger sum. Mayor
Smoot decided the matter by vot
ing for the $800 tax. It has heen
said there is not a large profit in
the near beer business anyway,
, unless it has other features con
nected with it, so it was thought
that few, if any would take out a
license for its sale, but such were
mistaken. Five in S alisbury and
several on Chestnut Hill have paid
the tax and are now doing buei
ness.

THE TAX LEVY.
Board of Aldermen Complete Work of Se
lecting Objects of Special Taxation.
It is probably a fact that noth
ing has been published in Salis
bury for a long time, which has
occasioned so much comment, as
the publication of the list of oc
cupations and business concerns
which are to be made subject to
municipal taxation. The com
ment was vigorous and yaried, not
unmixed with kicks of numerous
kinds . It was expected that there
would be considerable kicking,
for the aldermen di 1 not imagine
that a schedule of this Bort could
be adopted which would please all
citizens. About, three-fourths of
this schedule has been law for years
and some of the most vigorous
kicking is being done by parties
who will not have 1 cent of the
taxes to pay. The list is giver

reliable remedy. I suffered a great
deal from backache and l had lull
miserable headaches. The. kidney se

plainly showed by their unnatural ap
pearance that my kidneys were out of
order. When Doan’s Kidney Pills were
brought to my attention, I procured a
box at McPherson it Go’s drug store
