(Stanly News-Herald, 11th)
Mr. J. C. Simpson, a leading mer
chant of Aquadale, was shot last
night by an unknown negro and pain
fully but not fatally wounded. It
seems that Mr. Simpson, who lives
alone, was sleeping in h s store build
ii g. He was aroused by the negro,
who demanded that he be allowed to
enter the store. The assailant was in
formed that he could not enter, where
upon he pulled his pistol and aimed
it squarely at Mr. Simpson's forehead
and fired. The ball, however, did not
strike him squarely, but glanced and
infl cted only a very painful flesh
wound. Upon Mr. Simpson's call for
help the negro fled, and has not yet
been arrested. The wounded man does
not think that it was a local man who
shot him, but says it was a negro he
had never seen before.' Just why the
desperate colored man should have re
sorted to this violence is not known,
but it is generally believed that he
was doped or drunk, and had an idea
jt' robbery in view. Mr. Simpson is
;aid to be getting along nicely. Ha
's an old gentleman who does not
hear well is a hard worker, kind and
accommodating to every one.The af
fair has stirred the citizens of the
Aquadale section, and every eTort will
be made to apprehend the negro and
bring him to justice.

By Rev. T. J. Hajgiits
I am sure we all enjoy the articles
written from time to time by Dr.
Stewart of Monroe. Tney ere both
interesting and instructive. But in nis
last article he makes one statement
which might be misconstrued, thus
leading to an incorrect conclusion, tin
less carefully analyzed. He statej that
a person with a perfectly healthy body
and mind never commits any great
crime. Perhaps that statement is cor
rect, but it does not follow, as might
be inferred, that one must necesardy
cemmit crime just because he is dis
eased in body or mind. I have known
scores of people who were insound
in either mind or body and sometimes
in both, and yet they lived pure, clean
lives. So let us never get the idea
that crime is the direct and inevitable
result of disease. Of course a weaker-
td body or mind makes it eas er for
tne to yield to temptation, but 'till
he may res st, for uod has promised
sufficient grace under such circum
stances. Away with the Idct
Then away with the idea tat a
msn is not responsible for the crime
wh'th he commits because he is not
absolutely sound in very rcsscr. Cer
tainiy one who has completely !-st
h:s mind, or who is even temporarily
'p.ane, is not responsible, except to
the extent that such abnormal con
dit'ons may have been produced by a
wilful violation of the laws of purity
a:il health. But l?t us rememb"? that
v,- lful, premeditated crime is a volun
tary act, and therefore iner.cus.Mc.
However, Dr. Stewart's suggestion
abjut keeping the mind and b-niy in
a sound condition as one of the iveans
of preventing crime is a good doctrine.
A sound mind in a s vjnd body domi
nated bv the Divine Spirit constitutes
the highest type of manhood.
But crime is not the inevitable re
sult of a diseased nrnd or bjdy, un
less you consider original s:n and hu
man depravity a disease. It is the di
rect and inevitable result of contin
uous evil thinking. "For as he think
eth in his heart, so is he." Proverbs,
2J:7. Nearly all great crimes have
been premeditated. They have been
made possible by allowing one's
thoughts to run in "forbidden channels.
Indecent, crime-suggesting moving
picture shows, impure literature end
the modern dance are far more pro
lific of crime than is ill health, be
cause they set in motion a line of
thought that must v.t time produce
fruit that fruit is deeds which con
stitute crimes of various kinds. "Sow
a thought and you reap an act, sow
an act and y.iu reap n habit, sow a
hubit and you reap a character, sow
a character and you reap destiny."
Therefore, we should never allow our
thoughts to dwell upon evil things,
hut should concentrate them upon
thinirs that are pure. "Finally, breth
ren, whatsoever things are true,
whatsoever things are honest, what
soever things are pure, whatsoever
things are of good report, if there be
any virtue and it tnere re any praise,
think on these things." Phil. 4:8. So
if one rarefullv sruides his thoughts.
he is certain to live a good, clean life,
and this is the only safe way I know
to avoid crimes.

Perhaps you have heard this: "Gasoline ia
gasoline they're all alike." One might as
well 6ay that shoes are shoes, 6oap is 6oap
or tires are tires.
Just what drives that motor
A MIXTURE of from 12 to 15 parts of air and 1 part
of gasoline vapor docs it. Motor gasoline lias to be
volatile, w that it will vaporize readily, but that is not
all. The composition filial one part of gasoline vapor
largely determines Ik.w well the motor performs.
Motor gasoline muet be more than just volatile; it
should be pre-pcrly balanced. It must contain the right
proportion of light, intermediate and heavy constit
uents to aflonl instant ignition, abundant power and
"Standard" i a carefully balanced gasoline, which
accounts for the consistently good results it is giving
in tens of thousands of motors today.
It pays to discriminate in bujing gasoline, and oil too.
