RALEIGH, N. C MAY 25, 1915. VOL. C. NO. 79. "CAPITAL" OF "JARVIS COUNTY" Dunn Like-a Steam Engine With a Negro Sittir; -on the Safety Valve With a Bunch of Them Stuff ing Lit, 'ood In The Furnace. BION H. BUTLER D unn, May 22. In several respects t;..s is one of the most interesting ,on.t l ever met up with. You talk : .ut bubbling over with enthusiasm , it Dunn carries the pressure, with a ricr fitting on the safety valve and :. bunch of J,hem stuffing lightwood i'.'.i the furnace. Once in a while in ;, m'l(st way I have been in the InbU of entertaining some of my fii mis with stories about Tom Hol ! t's experiences in Moore and Moke e. .unties. Turn Holder has gone to .Mississippi, and I am sorry, for he w;;s a remarkably observing historian, the railroad came, but b brought up from his farm one about land for a town and began to quicken its step. But Dunn seemed to guess the answer to the new road better than anything else along the line, and here you have it, a community that insists that pro gress is not amenable to the speed limit. Moved Its Location. Dunn is some like the old woman up in the mountains. When an old friend from down in Craven county went out to visit her the neighbors said, "Miss Pinklewait done moved away f'm where she lives now." Dunn undertook to settle a few miles down the road toward Fayetteville when some point like Dunn .mi with another many interesting meant to be arose and the prospective b;t of curious history, but 1 am oi capital of Jarvis county took its pros- th-- opinion that these Jarvis county f. -Iks have seen some marvels that would interest Tom Holder. I will say right from the start that if into this story should creep any thing that sounds out of the ordin ary nobody should be surprised, for I have these things from men of in t.'lligence and of the strictest integri ty. But I will confess that Jarvis ( ounty strikes mc as being a wonder. It is told that a Wilmington man was in Dunn one day, and he walked pects and went up to a point not far from where the Tilghman Lumber Company in proper season founded a saw mill industry. Then the people began to tell the world what they ex pected to do, and incidentally they commenced to do it. Dunn is in Harnett county at least it is yet, although the folks here re gard the matter is merely temporary. They feel right confident that after the next session of the Legislature they will be in Jarvis county. I could Making corn and oats is so easy that Harnett boasts a good deal of its acreage yields. Tobacco has been making headway in the county, and the tobacco farmer of Dunn chuckled last fall when people were talking t ncr to the treaty which was based on Liu- vuiiiniuniiy ni our most important, political interests; which has guaran- IS SURPRISED T ITALY'S DEGISIO' Austro - Hungarian Minister Von Rojecz Issues Note , Vienna, via London, May 22. Baron Stephen Burian Von Uajeezn, Austr-H unitarian Minister for Foreign Affairs, today handed! to the Italian Ambassador a note expressing "painful surprise" at Italy's decision to put an end in such an abrupt man up and down street and sized up the recognize the symptoms. It is about budding place. Finally he stopped in front of the opera house and look ed both directions and sort of said to hiinsf if : "So this is the bushleaguer that pushed Wilminirton back onto a the same here that it was in Raeford when Raeford was in Cumberland county or in Sanford when Sanford was in Moore. I have heard a good many theories as to how to deal with branch railroad line. Wouldn't it make bees to prevent them from swarming 3 ou wish you had died when you was land keep them in the hive that they little to have a saw mill burg like this may work the whole crowd and fill fcet you in the solar plexus?' Product of Railway. I hit that is the way it came about. To tell the story of a man or a com munity you must go back and get a the honey boxes, but about the time you get the nicest theory to work the bees start out some forenoon about 11 o'clock, and they boil up in a swarm as big as a crate of black- about hard times for he had monev sturted clown in his boot tops, and he did not care two cents how long it took France and England to tench Germany to take off her hat when her Uncle Sam has some home folks crossing the water to Europe. Along with these other - things the farmers of Harnett became interested in the truck crops that have been bringing money into the country farther east and it is probable that Harnett is to become one of the garden counties of the South Atlantic coast. The Coast Line is probably the greatest truck moving road of the county and maybe of the world. The management of the system encourages the growing of things that can be hauled north to feed the increasing population of the expanding country, and that style of farming is spreading over to the main line of the road a-s well as to the lines farther eastward. Between Dunn and Mt. Olive a lively trucking section is building up, ana the prediction is made that sooner or later the truck movement will reach clear to the Cape Fear river in Harnett. From Dunn southward into Sampson county is a wide range of country that is suitable for cotton and grain, for tobacco and trucking, and one day the opening of the country from Dunn tot Clinton is going to be a feature in North Carolina develop ment. A lumber road from Dunn teed security arid peace to our states for so many years and which has rtndered Italy notorious services." The note says Austria's astonish ment is more than Justified as Italy repeatedly announced its wish to maintain and strengthen the bonds of alliance between the two countries. Italy's Interest Not Affected. Baron Burian Von ltajecz repeated that the object of the ultimatum to Serbia was purely to protect the monarchy against the revolutionary machinations of Serbia and that this aim could in no way affect Italy's interests. When the conflict assumed Euro pean character Italy proclaimed- ncr neutrality without "throwing out the slightest suggestion that this war which was provoked by Russia and prepared for long beforehand, could be of a nature to deprive the triple al liance of its raison d'etre," and made no communication which could justi fy the belief that it regarded the pro ceeding of Austria-Hungary as a "flag rant violation, both in letter and spirit of the alliance and treaty." Admit View of Italian Government. The cabinets of Vienna and Berlin, even though deploring Italy's resolu tion to remain neutral, a resolution which, in "our view was hardly com patible with the spirit of the treaty, goes down into Sampson now almost nevertheless loyally admitted the view Lit of his ancestral rating to indicate berries, and away they go for a tree, his character. Dunn is a descendant Hoke county swarmed, and Lee coun- or the old Pulling lilliy -locomotive ty swarmed, and if 1 can guess any that undertook to put the horse out from the signs Jarvis. county is crowd- oi business by introducing a strange ing tne hive. fcystem of hauling wagons by steam An Unknown Wilderness. on iron tramways.

That will bring a big acreage of Sampson into touch with of the Italian government, and an ex change of views which then took place established unaltered the maintenance of the triple alliance." Under article VII of the treaty Italy presented claims which aimed at se the world, and it is likely the lumber curing certain compensations in tho interests when the trees have been I event of Austria-Hungary obtaining removed will undertake to replace the advantages from the war, territorial lumber with farms and settlers.

Duke Makes Claims. Nevertheless, Baron Burian con tinues, Austria-Hungary a ways n.s been ready to begin conversations ou the subject and when Italy made her demands Austria-Hungary accepted even this as a basis for negotiations, although in its opinion Article VII of the treaty never referred to the terri tory of the treaty bound parties, but related purely and simply to the Bal kan Peninsula. While it was impossible to accede to all the demands Austria-Hungary with a sincere desire to reach an un derstanding, made sacrifices which were only justified by "a desire to up hold the alliance existing for so many years to the common advantage of both countries." Replying to the Italian objection that the conceptions offered ty Austria-Hungary were only to be realized at an indefinite time; name ly, at the end of the war.
