As Told by the papers in the Neighboring Counties. Lincoln. Death of IXr. George Yount Little Boy Killed Safe Bio wen at Cherry ville The "Weather Prophet Other Hewi. Lincolnton Journal, Oct. 19th. For the second time in over fifty years it failed to 'rain or snow on Tuesday of court. . In the case of John Rhyne for the killing of another negro, the grand jury found a true bill for murder in the second degree and Rhyne gave bond for his appearance at the next term of the court. Drayton Medlin, who killed W. G. Brown at Gastonia last summei and was convicted of murder, and sentenced to be hung, after several reprieves, has had his sentence cummuted to life imprisonment. The weatherwise say the ap proaching winter will com mence business early and will be a very severe one. This conclusion they arrive at from observing the migration south of wild geese and birds. But the goose-bone man has yet to report. Safe blowers got in their work at Cherry ville Wednesday night. They broke into the store of S. S. Mauney, blew open the safe and robbed it of $400 in money and a lot of valuable papers. Officers are hunting for two strangers who were hanging around town that night.

Mrs. Palmer, widow of -the engineer killed in the railroad wreck here a few weeks ago. has brought suit against the C. & NrW. Railroad for $30,000 damages. Mr. McNinch, of Charlotte, one of. her attorneys, spent several days here last week looking up evidence. Lawyers were scarce in Lenoir first of last week. Messrs. Jones, Newland, and Wakefield were in ' Charlotte most of the week engaged in the Brenizer-Henkle damage suit. Solicitor Harshaw and Hon. W. H. Bower were west of the Ridge attending court, and Mr. R. L. Sherrill was scattered about smellingbrandy j for Uncle Sam. The suit brought by Brenizer, of Charlotte for damages on account of the injuries sus tained by Mrs. Brenizer in an accident at Blowing Rock last summer a year ago, was tried at Charlotte .last week. The accident happened when the Brenizers were using a team and vehicle borrowed by Mr. Brenizer from Mr. C. V. Henkle one Sunday morning for the purpose of taking his wife and daughters from a cottage which they occupied to the ho te where they took their meals. Lee Corpenmg was picked up as a driver and .under Brenizer's directions undertook to drive over a rough piece of road not usually traveled, and the ve hicle was upset. Mrs. Brenizer was badly injured. It was clearly shown that Mr. Breni zer himself was to blame, if anyone was, for the accident, and most people think it a shameful piece of contemptible meanness for him to resort to the courts for damage from Henkle, Craig & Co. The jury returned a verdict in favor of the defendants. A righteous outcome, without doubt. The costs are considerable-perhaps $1 ,500. CLEVELAUD Saw 7ood and Say Hothing, Brother A Had Dog.
