Members of the crew of 52 aboard the Santa Maria threatened to throw their admiral, Christopher Columbus, overboard. Columbus restrained them with dif ficulty Birds sighted from afar sav ed him, perhaps. Even to sailors suffering from scurvey, fear of the unknown and too long a familiarity with each other, the birds meant land must be near. Oct. 8, 1806 —The military poten tialities of rockets, invention of Sir William Congreve. English engineer, were first demonstrated for a group of skeptical Frenchmen at Boulogne. The French wore convined but were as sore as the devil. The rockets set the town on fire. October 8, 1833 —The first serious railroad accident in America occur red on the Amoy and Bordentown R. R., in New Jersey. It gave a certain group of Phila delphians eloquent opportunity to say, “I told you so!” They had been conducting a campaign against the construction of a railroad to Phila delphia. One of their posters which survives says: “The Camden and Amboy, with the assistance of other companies, are laying a Locomotive Railroad through your most beautiful streets, to the ruin of your trade, annihilation of your rights and regardless of your prosperity and comfort. “Will you consent to this or do you consent to be a Suburb of New York Rally, people, in the Majesty o f your Strength and Forbid this Outrage!” It developed later that the steam boat people were back of this cam paign . Oct. 8, 1871—Chicago’s great fire broke out. It was to continue for three days and cost $20,000,000. There is no .basis for the legend that Mrs. O’Leary’s sow started it by kicking over a lantern while being milked. The cow was milked at 5 p. m. and no lantern was used. The first alarm was given at 9:25 p. m. Get. 8, 1918 Alvin C. York accomplished what the com mander of the A. E. F. regarded as the outstanding individual American feat of heroism in the World War. At Hill 233 in the Argonne, where his company had gone over the top at 6:10 a. m., he single-handedly killed 20 Germans, disabled 35 machine guns and took 132 prisoners. He had been a conscientious objec tor and had to be forced into the army.

It was here where fate directed Co lumbus to his great conquest. . . He had sought the aid of Spain, but the king and queen were busy with their war against the Moors. However, Columbus was permitted to state his theory before the learned men, but to no avail. Years of waiting and dis appointments brought the weary dreamer nothing. Then one day he came to this monastery of La Rabida and told his story to the sympathetic prior, who was the former father confessor of Queen Isabella. This prior interceded with the queen, and Spain finally consented to sponsor - the voyage. r '’**"***— HENDERSON, (N. C.)

WRITING WRONGS You’re in error if you suppose— Tha beavers always cut down trees so that the trees fall toward the wa ter. This is as mur> of an illusion as the belief that sunflowers always face the sun. That Pt. Bernard is a breed of dog. Actually, what is known and cele brated as the St. Bernard is a mon grel! William L. Stiles, San Antonio. Tex., reproves us for using the good old Kentucky colloquialism furtherest instead of the strictly correct furth est and then tells us we’re wrong if we believe— That the shucks of green corn (roasting ears) should be removed be fore boiling. They shouldn’t, he explains, with a fervor that convinces me that he shares with the writer an insatiable appetite for succulent corn on the cob, “any more than before roasting. Only the coarse outer-shuck should be removed, to save space in the boil er. All the sweetness and flavor contained in the tender shuck and silk is lost when they are removed be fore boiling; but be sure to cut the tip if necessary.” ' What Do You Know About North Carolina? By FRED H. MAY 1. When was the first charter for a railroad between Hickory and Lenior granted? 2. \v hat sahi.y was veted (or Gover nor Vance in 1865? 3. Why did the Fourth general as sembly hold three very short sess ions? 4. What were the comparative losses at me battle of Kings Mountain? 5. How did Raleigh’s revised char ter of 1856 take care of hogs and goats? 6. How did a 'bar-worker at Mor ganton in 1895 avenge himself for losing his job? ANSWERS 1. Or February 2, 1857 a charter was granted to Henry Cansler, of Lincoln county. John Wilfong, Catawba, and Ed W. Jones, Caldwell, of the “Moun "tain Railroad Company.” It provided for a railroad line to be built from “some point on the Western North Carolina Railroad in Catawba county” to Lenior or some point near Lenior. 2. The General assembly On Feb ruary 7, 1865 placed the governc 's salary at $15,000 for that year. It was based on Confederate money. 3. Governor Arthur Dobbs called the assembly to convene at Wilming ton April 13, 1762 to pass acts to pro | vide men for the royal regiments. I The assembly and governor were at I outs to start with and there was an immediate refusal to pass his bill. He prolonged the session and called a second session for April 20. The same thing happened and a third session was called. He was again refused. This time after a show of bad tem per he adjourned the assembly. 4. The entire British and Tory army under General Patrick Ferguson was killed or captured. Including General Ferguson 157 were killed and 153 so badly wounded they could not be re moved. Over 700 were captured. The patriots lost 28 killed and 62 wounded 5. Among many other interesting things the revised charter of’ "The City of Raleigh” of 1856 provided, “Upon every goat or hog running at large in the city there may be levied a tax not exceeding three dollars, and every such goat or hog may be seiz ed and impounded,” and sold “after three days notice at the court house.” 6. In December of that year S. B. Pearson was dismissed as an employe of a bar. Later he broke into the bar and destroyed every bottle and ves vel of whisky in stock — about 700 gal lons. /loah Numskuu.

Hoey Supporters Not Wor ried Over Swing to Graham (Continued from Page One.l governor, even if Graham and Mc onald succeed in carrying most of e other districts, his friends main tain. • For years it has been true that the candidate which could carry the ointh tenth and eleventh congressional dis tncts—and i n many cases only the tenth and eleventh—has been the one which has been nominated, whether for senator or governor,” it was point ed out by a Hoey supporter here to day. “These were the districts which nominated Ehringhaus for governor and Gardner before him, also the ones which nominated Bailey for the Sen ate and which for years had kept Simmons in the Senate. And the rea son for this is that in most of the counties in these districts the fight is a straight out fight between the Democrats and the Republicans, with the i esult that the Democrats invari ably settle on one candidate and stay with him. And all present indications are that the Democrats in these coun ties are going to center on Hoey and stay with him.” One reason for the belief that Hoey will get the bulk of the Democratic support in the west is because for the pa»st 15 or 20 years he has been heTp. ing the Democrats in these countres with campaign speeches in behalf of the Democratic candidates—and these speeches in many cases tui»,«d the tide and resulted in the nomination and election of the Democratic ticket, it is maintained. The Democratic lead ers in these western counties have not forgotten what Hoey has done to help Fhem, with the result that they are now going to do all they can to help nominate and elect Hoey, those who know the situation in these counties say. It is not argued, of course, that Hoey has everyth-jhg already sewed up in these counties fn the west. It is agreed that Grahant has some very substantial suppoftt/ln a good many of them. It is also conceded that Mc- Dondald has made,.sotne progress in a good many, especially along “the ridge” and including such counties as Stokes, Surry, Caswell and Wilkes. The more optimistic Hoeyites main tain that he will also get a big vo.e in the ninth district, including Cabar rus, Caldwell, Iredell and Rowan counties, although the 'backer of (Sandy) Graham maintain he will get a larger vote in these immediate coun ties thtna will Hoey.

Dough ton of the ninth district has already publicly announced that he will sup port Hoey has undoubtedly helped Hoey in this district, most observers believe, since it usually follows Dough ton almost to a man. This district has always been more conservative than anything else, with the result it ia now regarded as more likely to sup port Hoey than either Graham or i.icDonald. While McDonald is conceded to be making some pretty substantial gains some of the more experienced politi cal observers here frankly dou'bt if he can consolidate and hold these gains until next June. They point out that whatever he is able to do he will have to do almost single handed, since very few of the Democratic leaders in these counties can be counted up. on to give him any assistance. Ethiopia Orders Italian Minister to Leave Capital (Continued from Page One.) such an emergency. While France’s note of yesterday wave a general pledge of assistance, based on the conditior of reciprocity if Britain were attacked by sea, air or land, London, desired a more specific de claration of what help France would give. However, Ft was felt in London that France’s support of the Council’s ac tion in ordering sanctions against Italy made it mandatory for French aid in any Mediterranean emergency —such as an Italian attack on the British fleet to break a possible block ade. Premier Pierre Laval of France was described by official Paris sour ces as still seeking mild sanctions, de sirous of avoiding any of a stringent military nature. With sanctions discussed in every European capital, the Greek govern, ment—which declared a prohibition on the export of foodstuff —announc- ed iF would stand with other signa tories of the Balkan pact in support of sanctions. Italy Is Prepared. The Assembly of the League meets tomorrow to carry out the sentence of sanctions passed by the Cou yesterday after convicting the Italian government of aggression against Ethiopia. If the sanctions are economic and financial, the Italian government is prepared to make the test of it. The Italians are prepared also for the worst, in case the sanctions assume a military nature. Mrs. Stoll Admits Saying Defendant ‘Saved Her Life’ (Continued from Page One.) tried for complicity in the kidnaping in Federal district court here. After saying she could not remem ber the remark, Mrs. Stoll said: ‘‘l believe I did say something like that." She said she told the Federal agents this “out of gratitude.” Under questioning of a defense at torney, she said that her “gratitude” for Mrs. Robinson was only because she was not required to idmain alone in a closet of an Indianapolis apart ment where she allegedly was held prisoner by Robinson, Jr., after the kidnaping. Defense counsel also sharply ques tioned Mrs. Stoll’s story of her re lease by Robinson, Jr., when he al legedly went for the $50,000 ransom. Government counsel objected fre quently to defense tactics. 1839 —John Hay, one of Lincoln’s private secretaries, ambassador, sec retary of state, historian and journa list among the country’s most famous men, born at Salem, Ind.
