Then, if the courts are to be open, why should the proceedings be kept in the dark Iet him who is ashamed to have his name appear in print connected with some disgraceful crime be also ashamed to have it ap pear on the criminal court docket charged with the same offense." The Industrial News of Greens boro comments on the above as fol lows: "So far as court records are con cerned, we think that the publicity attendant uinm the conviction for any offense acts more strongly in the majority of cases than the imposition of a small fine towards making men obey the law." This is undoubtedly true, and while it is not a newspaper's busi ness to "make men obey the law." it is its business to give the public all the information to which it is en titled, and it is unquestionably enti tled to know everything that trans pires in all the public courts. The Ansonian is riht and should stand by itself and the public, even if some persons who commit a crime and want a back door settlement do ob ject It may be of interest here, to state, that so far as we have ever heard, no one who has been tried in the Recorder's court of Monroe has ever squealed beca ise his name went of Theodore Kstes, son of Sheriff M.

The verdict of acquittal was read by Foreman B. S. Met! raw. ' The following statement was given out tonight by the counsel forjudge Loving: 'Within half an hour after the ren dition of the verdict by the jury and the adjournment of court counsel for Judge Loving were called on by two of the jury who stated that they had been appointed a committee repre senting the entire jury h convey to Judge Irving and his wife and daughter the information that while thev believed that Miss Living's statement on the witness stand of what she had told her father was a true account of what she had com municated to him, yet not for a mo aient did the jury entertain theopiu committed by the deceased upon tin vounn ladv, but on the contrary thej were all fully satisfied beyond all doubt that no actual assault had been committed, but that there'had been an attempted assault." Counsel for Judge l-oving upon heina interviewed in this connection said: "The conclusion of the jury u the effect that no assault was com mitted was absoluelv correct." A month or so ago Judge Living drove to where vounir Kstes was at work and deliberately shot him dead The evening before, Kstes had gom driving with Miss KlizalH-th Living. referred the cases to what is known daughter of the judge, and the fatle er assigneu as a reason ior me an that his daughter had told him thai young Kstes had during the drive given her drugged liquor aud had assaulted her.

Mrs. Carrie Nation, a world char acter, spent the night and day in Salisbury and twice during the time she was hero she made public ad dresses in lurid castigation of mak ers, sellers, consumers and sympa thizers with whiskey, tobacco and kindred narcotics and soporifices. During the morning Mrs. Nation strolled the streets with reporters and gave her impressions of Salis bury. "It's a hell hole," she cried, "and I can see that you have plenty of poverty, degradation and suffering in your midst You have plenty of saloons and every one of them is a ticket ollice to hell. 0, look at that boy smoking that cigarette! Ain't you ashamed of yourself? What makes you want to ruin your body and soul that way? F.very time I see a tobacco leaf growing, I call upon God to blast it.

He will hardly come later. Toe Engine and the Cow. Inking. A coir that wore a bell having been ran over and killed on the railway, the owner brought suit against the railway for damages. It was proved that the engine dri ver blew the whistle loudly and tried to frighten the cow off the track. But the farmer'! lawyer aln proved that the cow rang ber bell and tried to frighten the en gine off the track, and so the jury decided in his favor. ing and ttie tact mat n was uone with premeditation and rested. Judge Living was the first wit ness for the defence. He said he was told by a relative that when hi. daughter returned from the drive U the home of a friend, where slit? was stopping, she was unconscious and a physician was summoned. As soon as he heard this the girl's mothei went after her and brought her home Judge Loving then told his daughter what he had heard and asked for an explanation. She said she went driv ing with Kstes against her will; that he shipped at his home and got a bottle of liquor; that he offered her a drink and she took it, whereupon she became very dizzy; that in an isolated spot Kstes forced her and that she lost consciousness and did not recover until she found herself in bed that night at the home of a friend. The witness said that aftei hearing this story no power could have restrained him from killing Kstes; that he got his gun, drove to where Kstes was at work and shot him dead without waiting for an ex planation. On cross-examination Loving ad mitted that he had been a drinking man himself, that he was at one time separated from his wife on account of his drinking; that he had suffered from delirium tremens, that he had taken a liquor cure but had been on sprees since, which had impaired his health and his mind, but that he had drunk no whiskey for two months prior to the killing. Dr. Tunstall, who saw Ixiving the day he killed Estes, just before and just after the killing, said from his general appearance and the fact that Lwing did not speak to him (they were well acquainted) he thought Loving was insane, and that Lving had frequently been in bad condition mentally from the effects of drink. The doctor admitted that he was not an insanity expert. Dr. Melvin tes tified as to the effects of drink on the mental condition. Miss Loving, the victim of the al leged assault, was the next witness. In tears she told in detail the story of her ride with Estes, of his giving her a drink from a bottle; that she became dizzy; when he attempted to assault her she resisted as long as she could, but lost consciousness. She told practically the same story as related by her father. Under cross examination the witness admitted that she had taken a drink at Kstes' store before starting on the drive. She was asted if she had not taken a drink at the store at Easter, but on objection this question was tempo rarily withdrawn. The defence rested Wednesday. All the testimony of the day was de voted to show that Judge Loving's mind was impaired by drink and that he was insane when he shot Vmioa TK nrrwuviitinn rpanminff offered testimony to disprove MissiF Loving s story, and pending a decis ion as to its admissibility court ad journed for the day. The evidence was subsequently excluded on the ground that it was not material to the case. Death of ,lr. Jesse I.. Sutton.

Waxtiaw KntiT,rj-i(v rroiatlv the largest tisti ever caught out of Twelve Mile creek was landed at Osceola last Monday morning by Messrs. J. II. and W. II. Starnes, sons of Mr. J. II. Starnes, a well known citizen and merchant of that place. Every body readily agreed that it was the largest fresh water fish they had ever seen. It was a C.erman carp and weighed ISJ pounds. The monster fish was caught in a fall trap in Twelve Mile creek just below the depot at Osceola. Indeed old time fishermen were more or less doubtful that it could have been caught by other means. Certainly it could not have been landed w ith ordinary hook and tickle, and many were of the opinion that in its natu ral element it possessed sufficient strength to have torn its way through a common seine or net. It was brought to Waxhaw and sold to P. T. Way for two dollars. It was then placed in a large tub of ice water and kept on exhibition for two or three hours in front of the W'axhaw Drug Company's store, where it attracted a great deal of at tention and called forth a great vari ety of remarks and comments. When the south-bound vestibule train No. 33 went by, it was hanging up in plain view of the people on the train and everybody from the engine to the rear end of the last Pullman car rubber necked at it. Two photo graphs of the big fish were made by Miss Jewel Krauss, and it may be that these will appear later in this The Doster Grocery Company is the leading boyer of chickens, eggs, bams and all other kinds of country produce.

It is worthy uf a wide reading in this day w hen so many f the young think the aged have outhv e.l their usefulness: f "Dy some, aged parents are consuiicrvd a burden, of w hich they would gladly rid themselves.

Ah! how ungrateful is the human heart! How apt is it to become ( cold and hardened toward those j v hum it once loved w ith the ten ileresl. holiest affection!

And, when the evening meal was over, then he took you on his knee, told you pretty stories, and called you his precious child? And that, when you came to be of the proper age, he sent you to school that you might obtain an education and prepare yourself to become wise and useful, nnd be an honor tc yourself and to the world? Have vou fot goiton all this? It cannot be. "Stop and think what you do when yu pronounce your fathei and mother burdens. Consider that the vigorof life is gone, that they have become weak and de pendent, and that their poor old hearts need cheering by kind words and pleasant smiles. The shadows of their lives are length ening their sun is about to set. Then be careful that you cause no cloud to settle and obscure the glory of that sunet.
