I!OHVi:K M McAhOO. It is becoming more app.iivnt every day tliat Herbert Hoover will bo ;lie Reptiblic.ui nominee lor presideui. and William G. McAdoo. the Demo cratic. The former will win the nom ination as a compromise candidate; , while Mr. McAdoo wili be the logical choice of his party. A bitter light is being waged in ihe Republican party b Joluwon. Wood , and Lowdeu. Neither of tlie thrne, j observers belli ve, can r-'ore harmo ny iu the discordant ranV.s, mid some one acceptable to the partisans of all the present candidates will have to be chosen If the Republican party hopes to gain control of the administration. This is why Hoover has such an ex cellent opportunity to win the nomi nation. He is a member of tfo fac tion, he is not radical in his views, nor unalterably opposed to the League of Nations pact, like Johnson. A nation-wide straw ballot, con ducted by the Literary Digest, shows Mr. McAdoo is the choice of the Dem ocrats. None of the presidential pos sibilities in his party, except Governor Edwards, are making appreciable showings, and the New Jersey gov ernor hasn't a chance because he Itands for nothing except 3 4 per cent Jferi or a liberalizatio.i of the Vol- stead act. Mr. McAdoo would r.ake a very ac ceptable candidate to the South. He is a Georgian by birth; he Is familiar with Southern conditions; and he Is a friend to the South, as demonstrated In the early days of the Wilson ad ministration when he thwarted the plans of "Wall Street to cause a panic by refusing to furnish the necessary money for the movement of the cot ' ton crop. nm Best in the world cft We sell them and Fisk sundries, too COBLE'S CASH GARAGE mis . r.e i. were : ; o a. i to c a drove !iot iiun lii? pill tnei: lovi a path Sudden ly, mi'ch to the iislonishmeui of the me-', the hogs stopped running.

In the next stretch of woods they came across an old man. who stood dejectedly agniust a tree. v.i:h a downcast face. -My friend.' one of the- men said, as he approach ed him. "can you tell us what is the manor vith those hogs who rnn so fast through the woods?' "The old limn slowlv raised his head, and In a low-, gutturl whisper, replied: " 'I was once considered the best hog raiser in the county. Mv lioz. plways weighed the most, and my drove suffered less from life inroads of disease than anv other drove in this section. I had Ihetn so well trained that tiny would obey tny com mands, even though thev were hun dreds of yards away. To call them in. I had only to planit. " Unfortunately, last year I lost my voice. At a loss as to how to control my hogs. 1 finally conceived the pnn of calling them to tne by heatlnz a tree with a stick. That was In the fail of the vrar. and the idea worked ttccessfu!lv until fining cptue. Now every time the rind rus tics In the leaves, the hogs think I nni cal'lug them, and rush head over heels to get to the sound. " 'Friends, my hogs are simply run- nlnj themselves lo death!' " t Horses and Fire. ' Mane peopl Klieve a iiee, when the barn Is on fire, will not leave the sti'hle unless It Is blind - folded and lead out. In most raes this holds ?ood. but when Mr. T. 0. Lee's ham caught Xre last we-?k. the horses rushed oil when M. Pani Lee, son of Mr. T. C. Lee. nuened the door. Ver.rs ago, -'nen Mi. Henry Shutr's ham was burned. C was not necessary to blindfold the horses. They, like Mr. Lee. rushed to safety when the doors were opened. Mr. J. L. Moore's sorrel horse however, refused to walk our of its stable Saturday mornln.T when its barn caught fire. Mr. Modio, who saved his valuable milk cows first, was unable to blind-fold and lend his horee to safety because of the intense heat. He managed to open the door, ihlnklng the hore would walk ouf. hut It stood In Its track tit; it It fell to the groum' from the cfi'ocis of the heat and smoke. Some say a horse will not leave the barn because It considers thu stable a place of safety. When the flames break out all around the horse, the helpless animal, evidently thinking everything Is burning, chooses to stay in the stable. Keeping History Straight. "Esq. Henry McWhtrter was mis taken in stating 1888 was a bad crop year." remarked Esq. T. C. Eubanks of Buford township to the News A Interviews man yes'erdny. "It was I In 18S9 when the crops were a fail ure. I remember this so well because I was married In 1888." h continued. ("That year I stayed with my father, ind we made a fairly good crop. The next year, in 1889, I started farming for myielf. Not only was Ihe whole Icounty Icte In getting the cotton plan 1 ted. but on the night of Sept. 26 a heavy frost fell. Less than a month Hater, on Oct. 8. the country experi enced a regular freeze, and the crop was almost ruined." , Morrison landing ut Wlngate.

Mr. Frank Hasty, of MarsArille. who was in Monroe Monday, had sev eral of his friends laughing at an ex perience he had in a North Carolina city some time ago when, he wan dered into a Catholic church. "I had no reason for entering the church." he said, "but followed another man in just for curiosity. 1 got along all right until I came to the altar, where the man in front of me had 'dipped his finder in holy water. 1 tried to do the same thing, but waa stopped by two of the priests, who stood near me.
