I a "t w w-m w rm mrm -m-r I -w . 1 - - i ii n mm r i m r . m m Kemember that Simmons and Buxton will speak here to morrow. Mr. Charles Staeey, who has I, eon railroading in South Car olina, is at home on a visit. The first frost of the season came yesterday morning-. And it was a pretty good one for a starter. Miss Tillie Falls has taken a position is Messrs. Lazarus Brothers' store as clerk in the hoe department. Mrs. Albert Stewart left the first of the week for her home at Cherryvale, Kansas, after a visit of several months with relatives here. Mr. F. C. Ferguson, of Table Rock, and Mr. M. P. Hildebrand, of Morganton, are in Statesville this week as jurors in the Federal court. Dr. W. A. Leslie went down to Concord Tuesday, took in th? big circus and returned Wednesday, accompanied by Mrs. Leslie, who had been visiting in Concord for several weeks. We have received the initial number of The Mountian Boomer, of Lenibr. Edgar Allen Poe and Mark Squires are the editors and publishers. It is "decidedly democratic" and makes a good start. Here's luck to it. We are sending out this week quite a number of sam ple copies of The News. Along with these goes an in vitation to subscribe, if, after examining the paper, you think it worth the subscrip tion price 75 cents per year. Messrs. L. A. Ward, Jack Dunavant and R. L. McCon- naughey, who have been con ducting a livery business in Morganton under the name of L. A. Ward & Co., have dis solved co-partnership, Messrs. Dunavant and McConnaughey drawing out. Mr. Ward will continue the business at the ld stand. Morganton has come very- near having an oil famine this week. The Standard Oil Company's tank at this place merchants have been out of oil. A car load of oil bound for the tank here has been delayed enroute, hence the scarcity of the commodity. A shipment from Marion, received yester day, furnished some relief. Won by a Morganton Lady. At a carnival in Concord a few days ago a $9 umbrella was put up to be voted to the most popular young ladv in the town. A price was charged for each vote and $73 was realized. When the votes were counted it was found that Miss Lizzie Hemphill, daughter of Mr. T. L. Hemp hill, of Morganton, had re ceived a majority. Miss Hemphill holds a position with the Odell Company, of Con cord, and those who know her will not be suprised that she won in this contest. Death of Mr. J. Wesley Berry. Mr. J. Wesley Berry, one of Burke's most prominent and best citizens, died at his home in Lovelady township Wednesday night, after an illness of only a few days, of acute kidney trouble. He was 63 years of age and leaves six children-one daugh ter, Mrs. W. B. Berry, of Burke, and five sons, Davie Jones, Frank and Phifer Berry, also of this county, Charlie Berry, of Biltmore, and William Berry, the eldest son, who lives in Utah. The mother died very suddenly last spring. Mr. Berry was a devoted christian and had been a val ued member of Enon Baptist church for a number of years.
