Two Drummers Egged.
We find the following item
in the Charlotte Observer from
its Moranton correspondent,
under date of July 29th:
44 A story is current here that
two younjr commercial travel
ers, one of whom hails from
Charlotte, had a roujrh exper
ience here one nifht this week.
These youno- gentlemen form
ed two of a party of drummers
who recently whiled away a
July Sabbath day in Morgan
ton in a manner more convivial
than devout. Whether they
made enemies here on that
occasion is not known, but
this week they returned, made
a call on some younjj ladies in
the evening, and while return
ing to their hotel were assist
ed with rotten es. Their
clothing and hats were ruined
land they were compelled to
telephone to a clothing store
for new outfits. They then
went to the depot to board the
train and their assailants
renewed the assault to such
purpose that the younf men
went off in the dark end of the
Jim Crow car. The local
authorities here have gotten
wind of the incident, and if
the vouno- men will ;ive them
clues to work on they will
make it warm for the er
th rowers."'
