The Hickory electric lights, after a suspension of several months, were turned on again last week. The wife of Mr. Jacob Setzer, just east of Newton, died of pneumonia last Thursday morning. The murder of old Mr. Travis near Newton is still a mystery. The Governor will be asked to offer a reward for the detection of the guilty parties. Mr. Jesse Hawn, aged SI years, dropped dead at his home in East Hickory last Fri day afternoon. He was one of the oldest and most respected citizens of Hickory. Next Friday night the Philo mathean Literary Society of Catawba College will debate the momentous question: "Does a man have the right to steal a wife".! Col. Nichols of Philadelphia, an official of the Pennsylvania Railroad, and a party of fve friends spent last week shoot ing in the county. They had their private car part of the time at Newton and part at Catawba. Mr. Alf Sigmon pilot ed them over the best shooting grounds. They left Saturday with about 300 birds. The Eastern field trials ended Monday. The club complains this year of a scarcity of birds, and there is talk of moving the trials to some other place. When the club leased their grounds here, there were birds in abundance, so many in fact as to sometimes confuse the dogs. The posting of the lands in some inexplainable way has reduced instead of augmenting the number of birds. Subscribe for The News. Mortgage Sale of Town Lot.
