Murphy on yesterday brought the sad news of the death, Wednesday night, of Miss Anna Allen, at North Finishburg, Vermont. Miss Allen was for several years a teacher in the Deaf and Dumb School at Morgan- ton and during her stay here made many friends, who were deeply grieved at the an nouncement of her death. Aside from possessing a very amiable disposition, she was a highly accomplished woman. While here she often contributed to thelocal papers, and the products of her pen were read with a great deal of interest. Judge Council to Take the Oath. The Morgan ton correspond ent of the Charlotte Observer says: Judge J. W. Bowman is holding the courts of this district by exchange with Judge Robinson. Judge W. B. Councill, his successor, will take the oath of office as soon as the State vote is canvassed, on Thursday. An idea has prevailed in some quarters that Judge Bowman, who was ap pointed to fill the vacancy oc casioned by the death of Judge Green, will hold on until Jan uary but such is not the case. Section 25 of article 4 of the constitution provides that such appointees "shall hold their places until the next regular election for members of the General Assembly," and to re move all possible doubt on the subject, chapter 613 of the laws of 1899 provides that judges elected to fill such vacancies "shall be commissioned im mediately after the ascertain ment of the result in the man ner provided by law, and shall qualify and enter upon the discharge of the duties of the oflSce within ten days after re ceiving such commission." It is possible that Judge Councill may continue the exchange made with Judge Robinson. The members of the Burke bar would be glad to have Judge Councill hold the November term here." HAT HATS' HATS!
