We call attention to an article from
the Charlotte Observer in which the
editor quotes from a sermon delivered
by Rev. Dr. L. M. Zimmerman. pastor
of Christ Lutheran Church in Baltimore.
The subject was "Our Inheritance."
The church should be the refuge for
the weary and those who labor and are
tired, and it should be a plac-! where
people are happy and cheerful. and
where a word of welcome and a hearty
grasp of the hand awaits the stranger
and yet it is too often just the opposite,
so few to give a kind word.
The Elks had visited Baltimore just
the week before the sermon was deliv
ered, and in the course of his sermon
Dr. Zimmerman said that many f his
hearers may have jotted down things
against the Elks, especially the chronic
kicker and the man who can look at the
faults rather than the virtues of men,
for the world sees the Elks "only in
the rough exterior the burr and not
sweet kernel, the kind heart and spirit
of benevolence and charity. Not a few
of God's people might lea n from them
the power of a smile and the uplift
ing influence of good fellowship and
good will. The kindly spirit of "Hlello
Bill" might work well in some church-s
where there is a superabundance (if
cold formality aml unfriendli-ness, where

Plrst Cost Not the Cheapest,
The first cost of an article does not
necessarily determine its cheapness.
For instance, a sack of "Clifton" flou
may cost you a little more than other
so-called patent flours, but it will be
cheaper toyou in the end. Why? Be
cause it will1 not only make more bread
to the sack, but will take less lard and
soda to make It. Order a sagk of "Clif
ton" and make a test for yourself. It
wvill prove the truth of this statement.

That is the Pading of the Coroner's Jury
in the Kiint of Raymond sizer by
Clarence Brooks.
On Saturdaynight at Vaughnville Mr.
Clarence M. Brooks the son of M r. C.
A. Brooks killed a negro by the name
of Raymond Sizer. An inquest w ,.as
held on Sunday an-l the jury says the
killing was done in self defense. That
is the story briefly told. Mr. Clarence
Brooks is only seventeen years old. IlIe
had retired for the night in the store of
his father where he and his brother
slept. The negro aroused him to make
some purchases. As the negro started
out the door he made an insulting re
mark to Mr. Clarence Brooks and then
made at him with a large iron weight
and Mr. Brooks fired with the result
stated, the bullet going through his
heart. Only three witnesses were
sworn at the inquest and their testi
mnony is given.
The inquest was held by Magistrate
J. W. Ropp at the written request of
Mr. C. A. Brooks and Mr. B. W. Good
The verdict of the jury is: "That the
said Raymond Sizer came to his death
from a gun shot wor.nd inflicted by the
hands of Clarence M. Brooks acting in
self defense.-or to protect his life."
The jury was composed of J. R. Scurry,
M. 1). Smith, Hi. B. Lindsay. Jno. B.
Seurry. T. R. Workman, M. J. Long
4hore. M. L. Connelly. S M. Johnson,
P'. S. Boazman. W. J. Sullivan, Henry
Workman, J. J. Amick.
A warrant was issued for Mr. Brooks
ANd he immediately gave bond in the
-um of t wo hundred dollars for his ap
pearanee at the sessions court to an
swer the charge of murder "if so
ieemed necessary by the solicitor.''
The following is the testimony of the
three witnesses sworn at the inquest:
Clarence M. Brooks. sworn, says:

Ie said. "what is it then." I said,
"Mr. Brooks, to a negro.' He came
in and Walter got up and waited on
him, when he got ready. t,j go he said,

I cane on up to the d<nr and told

the side of his left face. Then he came

he picked it up. I told hirn he had bet

I got out here, where it is now and my

I(EJ"IsKI To nets'IIVK nloIy.
A strange incident in connection with
this homicide is, that while the negroes
made no demonstration, or gave any
evidence of disapproval of the killing
they positively refused to have anything
to do with the body. There wvas a negro
meeting in progress within a short dis
tance of the store, and It seems the
leaders of the meeting gave Instructions
so positive thateven the step-fatherand
mother of the dead negro refused to have
anything to do with the body. It must
have been In obedience to such Instrue
tions for the grave had already been
dug and the coffin purchased bur the
wagon was turned around at the church.
The mother of the boy came up to the
store after the shooting and some time
before the inquest. Why this proceed
ing was taken by the relatives of th<
dead negro is not known. The follow.
