Attempted to Knd His Life. Early yesterday morning Mr. Ed. Benton, a one-legged veteran at the Soldiers Home, atempted to end his life by severing an artery in his left arm. As a result of the attempt at self-destruction he is now in the hospital at the Home in a very criti cal .condition, with but very little hope for his recovery. He has been at the Home for the past twenty years and in very poor health for sometime. Yesterday morning a nurse discovered that he had opened an artery in his left arm and had lost nearly a gallon of blood. When he was spoken to in regard to the rash act, he replied that "I may just as well die this way, as I am going to die anyway." It was a pitiful thing to think that an old man should wish to commit any such an attempt at self-destruction. He is getting very old and it is thought that poor health and the thought of not living long led him to wish to end his life. From to-day's News and Observer. XO COURT AT FA YETTE VI LtLE.

Judge Peebles Fails to Show Up and Fails to State Why. Fayetteville Index. Cumberland Superior Court for the trial of civil cases only was sched uled .to convene Monday morning, but Sheriff N. H. McGeachy received a telegram from Judge R. B. Peebles saying he could not get here Monday but would be on hand Tuesday morn ing. Tuesday morning came, but no judge, so there was no court either Modnay or Tuesday, though the citi bens of the county having business in the court come. Wednesday court was adjourned for the term upon receipt by Sheriff McGeachy of a telegram from Judge Peebles at Jackson, N. C, saying, "I am unable to hold your court. Ad journ it." Insame Man Frem Near Method Now Confined in Jail. Jack Johnson, not he of pugilistic "arue, but Jack Johnson of Method, is in jail awaiting commitment to the colored hospital fo rthe insane at Goldsboro. Jack's principal ob session is religion, and when any body dares to disagree with him he is ready for the inquisition of old. He was raising sand at Method, and to get him to jail the people out there suggested that he go to church. Jack agreed and was brought to Ra leigh. Deputy Sheriff Harward sug gested that Jack go into the "church" hack of the court-house and Jack readily consented. He even closed the cell door to keep out the cold. Dr. Horton made an examination this afternoon. From Saturday's Raleigh Times. Mrs. Franklin II. Grist Dead. The funeral services over the re mains of Mr. Franklin R.

Officers of the company said that all requirements of the decree had been complied with, including the distribution of securities and assets. A Blind Man Puts Up a Job on Some Moore County Negroes. Moore County News. The man who wrote "There's Noth ing New Under the Sun," never at tended a criminal term of Moore Su perior Court, for at every sitting there appears to be something little more so than before. This time we had the treasure locating needle and wonderful "D. D. Drugs." It seems that W. J. Yarborough, who purports to be blind and who was educated at the blind school, came to Carthoge and pretended to give entertainments and "feel heads," as he put it on the stand, but brought along with him a wonderful magnetic needle which would locate money or other treas ure buried under the ground. When the machine, which wag carried in the hand, got to the place where the money was it would point directly down and would not permit its bearer to go any farther. After stopping the whole outfit just over the spot the needle would then spin around one time for every thousand dollars hid just beneath where it was. By bor ing a hole in the .ground, pouring in quicksilver, on top of which was put the wonderful "D. D. Drug." which was set on fire, the ground was burn ed away and there was nothing left but to shovel away the ashes and take out the money. Many circulars, writ ten in a most seductive manner, pam phlets and booklets and a large red book called "Jacob's rod," were all put In evidence. All these told what It is a Scourge to All of Mankind Can be Prevented by Precaution. There are many cases of smallpox in various sections of the State, though thus far the disease has not spread to any extent from where the first cases in a community were dis covered. Dr. Rankin, Secretary State Board of Health, in speaking of the disease. In part, says: "Smallpox is a deadly, disfiguring disease. It is largely a disease of apathy. It rarely occurs in a mod ern, progressive, community. It nev er attacks vaccinated people. In cer tain parts of the United States it is so rare that whole States go for years without a single death from that dis ease. In 1909 such States an Penn sylvania, Maryland, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Maine did not have a single death from smallpox. Many physicians in such States have never even seen a case of the disease. Why? Because vaccination is so general there. "A century and a quarter ago, how ever, things were different. That was before the days of vaccination. Then not less than 10 per cent of all deaths were due to smallpox. In Eu rope 400,000 lives were annually lost from this disease." AMUSEMENTS. The Fortune Hunter, Saturday, March 2 Special Matinee at 2:30 P. M. For the benefit of the many theater-goers living out of the city, as well as those residing here, who are anxious to see that great comedy suc cess, "The Fortune Hunter," on Sat urday, March 2nd, a special matinee will be given at 2:20 p. m sharp. Special prices have also been ar ranged for this day and date only. Entire lower floor $1.00; balcony, 75 cents and 50 cents:- One of the best acted, best written and altogether delightful comedies of the season will be "The Fortune Hunter." Winchell Smith has written a play that is true to nature. His charac ters are real men and women and some of them live in big cities and others are to be found in any vil lage in any State in this country. "The Fortune Hunter" is one of those plays that sends you home in good humor, with the conviction that all good sermons are not preached, from the pulpit. Reserved seats for both matiness and night are now on sale at the Yar borough Hotel newstand, and it would be advisable for those desir ing good seats to buy early. Night prices, 50 cents to $1.50. Francis Wilson, America's Foremost Comedian, is Coming Tuesday, March 5. One of the real big, genuine the atrical events of the season will be the appearance of that famous and always welcome comedian, Francis Wilson, on next Tuesday night, March 5th. This is indeed a great treat and the theater-goers from far and near sfxould take advantage of this opportunity, as the chance may never be offered again. In "The Bachelor Baby," which Francis Wil3on wrote for himself, the popular comedian is said to have found the best vehicle he has had. In writing the play, Mr. Wilson has apparently, perhaps unconsciously, uttered a strong preachment for the children, for his play, which is a comedy-face, shows how a little child with her innocence and love won over a crusty bachelor who positive ly hated the sight of little ones. Reserved seats for Mr. "Wilson's engagement will open at the Tar borough Hotel newstand Monday morning at 10 o'clock, and it would be advisable for those desiring choice seats to be on time, as Mr. Wilson will surely be greeted by a capacity house. Mail orders from out of the city, accompanied with remittance, will receive prompt attention. Prices 50 cents to $2.00. "Black Patti" and Her Company of Colored Performers, Wednesday, March 6. The Hesperus Lodge, No. 8881, of colored Odd Fellows, desire to an nounce that they have leased the Academy for Wednesday, March 6, an dthat they have succeeded in se curing that well-known colored pri ma donna, Black Patti, and her equally well-known company of col ored performers for the benefit of the local lodge. The entire theatre will be given to the colored theatre goers. Reserved seats will be on sale at Hamlin & Co.'s drag-store Saturday morning at 10 o'clock. Prices, 25 cents to $1.00. fMMOi I7WUoa bo Wcr Ttfeaa IrcUcc I Certain Ataertna Pricm To-day.
