Roanoke Mills played a good, consistent game. Pace pitched - a good game allowing only four hits. The Rosemary batteries did good work also allowing Roanoke Mills only two hits dur ing the nine frames: one off Gilliland in the first inning and one off Welsh in the eight in nings he worked. With the ex ception of the first frame, the Rosemary team played good ball, an errorless game in fact after the first inning. Dobbins' work for Rosemary in centerfield was exceptionally good. In the first frame, Roanoke Mills scored the winning runs. R. Barnes, first up, went to first bag on Cushing's error. Hales,vfol lowing to first on wentGilliland's fumbling an easy one, and Bar nes trotted to second, and stole third base on Shearin. Hales annexed second while Shearin wasn't looking and Barber fan ned. ' Scott made a long sacrifice fly, Barne3 scoring on the throw home and Hales taking third base. Johnson singled, scoring Hales and taking third base on Shearin's error. W. 'Grimmer fanned. After this frame, Rosemary retired Shearin to bench, put Collins behind the bat and Welsh in the pitcher's box, Gilliland taking third. Roanoke Mills didn't score again, getting only one icatch hit (sixth inning.) The two runs lead ws too much for Rosemary to overcome. In the sixth frame they scored one man. Sox went to first on R. Barnes error. Gilliland sing led, advancing Sox to second. Cunningham fanned. Kelly singled, carrying Sox to third and filling the bases., Hayes fanned. Cushing took first on Barber's error, which cost one run, as Pace fanned Dobbins, next man up. No more scoring, was the order of the day.

Patterson Mills vs Roanoke Rapids A clean, close game, well play ed through the entire nine fram es. Snotherly and Purcell, bat tery ' for the Patterson Mills played exceptionally good ball: Snotherly was in fine form and althoughtheRapids got seven hits off him he kept them so scatter ed through the innings that lit tle damage was done. In winning this game, the Patterson Mills team left posi tion at the foot 'of the league and if they continue playing the ball they have played for the past few weeks, the team has a good chance for coming even farther to the front, Hughes for the Rapids pitched a good game, allowing only six hits during the nine frames but did not get the support the Pat terson Mills gave Snotherly. While the Patterson Mills played very near an errorless game, the Roanoke Rapids team perpetrat ed seven. For the first five and a half frames, it was strictly a nothing, nothing performance. Runners got to third base in the fourth frame on both teams but were unable to connect with home plate, In the sixth frame, Roanoke Rapids scored two runs. Hilliard went to bat and sinzled. stole second. Floyd, next at walloped the horsehide for an other base and carried Hilliard third, stole second. Smith, next at bat followed suit, his single scoring Hilliard and Floyd, and he took second on the throw home for Floyd. Hughes pop ped out pitcher to first. Ed- mondson fanned. Mizelle went out second to first. In the eiehth frame, the Pat-! terson Mills team won the game i by scoring three runs. McAllis ter, first at bat, singled, taking second on Mizelle's error. Fer rell next at bat, went to second base on W. Cherry's error, ad vancing McAllister to third. H. Fitt's error scored McAllister and carried Ferrell to third. Mosher, third up, singled. Ed mondson's error, scoring Ferrell and putting Mosher on second. Teague walloped for a double, scoring Mosher. Towe flew out to short Purcell to lett neia (a sensational catch of Cherry's, ) Edwards popped out to pitcher. Neither side scored again. The features of the game were the battery work of both teams and the good infield "work of the Patterson Mills. H. Cherry tor Roanoke Rapids played a sensa- tional game in left field. Teague and Purcell of the Patterson Mills played good snappy ball.

VoJ Incomplete returns from the tal statistics for last year is Justj-fciiig the recommendation of ; Democratic Primaries of Halifax being made. The figures for last the North CaroHna CottQn Man County, received last night, in year cover only the deaths in j . hllwa Aw.ion. nil of the : dirate,i that w- L- Lnof Roa- towns having a population of 1,000 or more. This really means only about one sixth of the popu lation of the State. Beginning with this year with the new vi tal statistics law figures will be available for the entire State not only for deaths, but also for births. ! From the. figures completed! yesterday, it was found that there was a total of 245 deaths from typhoid fever in the towns of the State having a population j of over 1,000. This would mean j annroximatelv 1,470 for the en-: tire State as against approximate - ly 972 for 1912and 1,590 for 1911. Based on the 1913 figures alone n J i.L. imo nMiHj-irt o rtn a it rives us a typhoid death rate of 64.0perl00,000,or based the average for the last three years it gives us a death rate of 59.2 per 100,000 as against the aver age tvnhoid death rate of 21.0 per 100,000 in the United ates. This, m the opinion of the, O -w Board, is a tremendous death rate from this preventable filth disease, and a disgraceful state of affairs. The typhoid tever death rate is generally recogniz ed as the index of the sanitary conditions of a community. It in-! dicates in unmistakable "hand- j writing on the wall" that wej will have to abolish old open-1 backed privies and make sewer The revival meeting at Rose connections in towns and use 1 marv scnool house which began sanitary privies or fly tight pri- I vies built over pits or ! the ground, instead of holes in allowing hies, and ' domestic animais to;weeks meeting was a decided i carrysand scatter this germ-lad-' succesSi Mr. Joel E.

Topping, the State Board of Health through any physician in the State, there is absolutely no reason why any one who values his life or health at all should not protect himself absolutely against typhoid, even though his neighbor does Dreea nies anajv,asjs The meeting was heiu; keep an open-backed privy. even towns in the State had a typhoid death rate of over 100 per 100,000. These in their order are, Sa'nford first with 186.3, Louis burg second, 152.5, Henderson-ville- third, 129.0, High Point fourth, 124.1. Bnrliugton fifth, 115.8, Forest City sixth, 114.1, and Winston-Salem seventh, 104.0. With typhoid death rates over five times as high as the average in the United States, there" is no question but that these towns need, to do some hbuse cleaning and establish a health department. Of the seven largest cities in. the State, as might be expected, Asheville with her excellent health department has the low- .est rate of 25.3, or just halt that of Greensboro, the next lowest with 50.6.
