Slrilljljll! III!- Iwi!i:n the Married Mini of Itoiinoke Rapids inil Weldon .(George K. Buck) Just before the society loaders of Weldon and Roanoke Rapids got ready to prance on the green , vvyene s oince aim inveigieil me o r.- Mutual Life Insurance Coimanvi"re- The addition will be, the stage was set for the en- : trance of the heroes. Tier on tier, he beauty and the wit of both towns strained the creaking tim- hers of the grandstand. All the ' colors of the rainbow were there, birds of plumage and the latest ' Panama creat ions. The stream of .automobiles knew no end, the . )asturei1 n,,rse:j and colts 'lulet,y !t'ok tht,wdv ay' m ,v,th the inrc,'1 to, t,ie field ,f nrr von l-minclrtthewamors, doughty in borrowed togs and legal clo 'thes, grimly tonk their places, it. was Roanoke first at the bat. Zin? went Cooper with a Bonder mrw iind hing went Mullen a,ut a yard from the ball, like Home run Baker after one of Matty's fadeaways. Catcher. Dan iel let loose a horse-laugh, and Mullen ground his teeth. Sa-a-ah! sighed the air as it rushed in toi fill the void made by Mullen's vicious swipe at the second hall pitched. The third was a strike out. Poor Horner got first on four balls wilder than Bill Jones cow, hut got out trying to take a header into t urd. When Jackson came up, all j Roanoke broke loose. Jackson re sponded nobly, and hit a hot ' grounder through second. Then Dickens began a little amusement id' bis own. and shot all the good onus out of bounds. Jackson j got tired of wailing for one of them to change its mind and stay within limits, and was put outtrot- ting down to third. Just before Dickens came up, Adkins had made the first hit, a Texas leaguer over second. But what avail? For Weldon Gregory went to first, hit by a pitched ball, while Dobbins was trying to locate the plate. Henry House hit safely to center, and Gregory sprinted to third. Daniel flied out. Dr. Pierce then came up and whacked one over second scoring the first run of the game. House got out trying to make it two. You should never do that, Hanry. Cooper showed the stuff in him by smashing the first ball pitched into left field, and scoring two. Drake fanned. Dickens came back again for another try, and got to second on one of the few errors made. RoU'rson tried to fry the ball, and unfortunately struck out. Had he hit it, it is thought it would be traveling yet. The Chief of Police was the next man up. Now if the Chief of Police can't hit a ball, who can? Just before the' game, friend Squire Brown whispered in the Chief's ear that he would give him a real live simoleon from Wyche's bank if he would hit safely just once. This looked easy, and the Chief "got set" The wind from the whistling of his bat blew a train off the via duct of the A.C.Lin Weldon, and the train crew is still busy pick ing up the pieces. Never mind, Chief, you got one later in the day, and the Squire says he will make good on the dollar. Why should you worry? Tillery hit a nasty one to the pitcher, and it was "some sight" to see him sprint to first. It was no go, however. That was about all this inning. For Weldon Williams wished himself out on the first three balls thrown. John House got out at ftrst too. Gregory bumped a grounder to second. Daniel's fly to deeps center was fumbled and And Tin; Iloildlny (iocs Merrily Un The building boonhas evident ly not yet reached its highest point. Many more new build ings are under consideration and actual building work on several other buildings started this week. MK Wells D. Tillery has given the contract for the large addition to his pres ent two store building to D. J. Philips of NewportNews, Va. This addition is quite an extensive one and will practically double the i iiiwir snncti fit v i rt m-iro m-nu (1 it mn. of course, of brick construction and two stories high. An eleva tor and stairway will be installed. The hardware department will be moved from its present loca- , tion to fr(,llt 0,1 Second Street j a,1( tne Grocery department will occupy the space now used by the hardware department. The second floor of the entire build ing will be used for the storage of hardware, fanning imple ments, etc., and a complete stock of sash, doors and blinds will be carried. Mr. W. F. Horner is going to build a brick store building on his lut next to that on which the First National Bank is now build ing. Actual construction work on this building will begin short ly. Mr. J. R. Baird is building a garage and aiitnnnhilo repair shop just behind his dwelling on Jackson Street, This building will be occupied by the Roanoke Rapids Garage. Mr. W. G. Lynch is going to build a brick store building next to the building Mr. W. F. Horner will erect. This building will be occupied by Mr. Lynch, himself for his Jew elry business. Attempted Murder mid Suicide On last Monday afternoon, W B. Council, formerly of Rose niary. but who now lives in Wel-j don, fired two point blank shots at j his wife. On seeing her fall and j thinking he had killed her he turned his pistol upon himself! j and inflicted a dangerous wound in his breast. Mrs. Council it seems was not wounded at all. Jealousy is the alleged cause for the shooting, although there seems to be no cause for it, Council is well known in this town having lived in Rosemary for several years. Roanoke Rapids Girl Wins Scholar ship Prize Miss Rosa Moody, of Roanoke Rapids, who has been at school at Buies' Creek Academy, won the prize for scholarship in that institution for the past year. There are over four hundred students in this academy and the winning of this prize under those conditions is a very creditable performance. The prize was $10,00 in gold and Miss Moody and her friends should feel very proud of her attainment. "I beg your pardon"-"Granted, it's no use begging for any thing else!" Glasgow Record. all the heroes were safe. Also a couple of runs were made. Pierce again got out. Shame on him! In the third there was more music. In the fourth Cunningham for Roanoke made the longest hit of the season (!) and ambled home on the home run drive over the fence. Aside from the serious pitching of George Green, who replaced Cooper for Weldon at a critical time, this was the great sensation of the game Other sensations were the broad smile worn by Walter Daniel until Roanoke tied the score, and the pleasant view taken of the game by the horses and colts both of which manifested a keen de light in the long swats. The net result was sixteen all, tired arms, ' 'ame kR8 ana" a tidy sum for the ! hospital It is a shame to tell what we will do to Weldon, when they play the return game here.
