It was sometime alter t'.ie ii(?Rinsers moved forward before the heavier col umns took the roads'. The entire army finally was moving, and moving along the lines of peace day?. But it was in such order that it might quickly be transformed into 1>attle array. Every brigado was covered by a regiment of 77's. the tfEavier artillery" following close behind. The flanks of ti-.e r-dvan cing columns were well protected. State of War St Ml Exists. It has been impressed on officors and men alike that this Is an operation un der an armistice; that war still exists and that the possibility remains at any time it may be necessary fo~ them, to play their part with the sa_no grim ners of the past year. Fraternization, not only with the German ooldiers who may be found eithftr ad straggler* cr volunt\ry pris oners, but with the civilian population, has beon 3ternly forbidden. Lcoti-ig and even souvonir hunting also have been forbidden the Americans. It has been plainly imposed upon ti.e P .on that property Is inviolate r?.n^ that those porson.-r with whom they come in rontact must be re^ardod ac enemies. Mrs. A. H. Fleming Appointed Ch?rns Reader for Louhburg. Mr. Wade R. Brown, State Musical Director, has appointed Mrs. A.

Houso on Monday night and patriotic enthusiasm ran high. Governor T. W. Bickett was the prin cipal speaker of the occasion and de livered a splendid address. The Shady Grove. Green Hall and Seminary choirs furnished the music for the occasion and this music was pronounced by many to have been the best choir mu sic ever heard in Louisburg. The meeting was presided over by Dr. J. B. Davis, Chairman for the Col ored People of Louisburg Township War Work Campaign, assisted by Prot Geo. C. Pollard and W. M. Alston, County Secretary and Treasurer res pectively for the Colored United War Work Campaign. After Governor Bick ett's address, Richard Perry and Rev. John Young made short talks which brought forth much applause and the finest spirit possible prevailed through out the exercises. The colored people of Louisburg had already raised in the Mass Meeting addressed by Mr. Z. D. Dunlap, State Director and Dr. W. M. Poteat, of Wake Forest College about $1000.00, but by special request the subscription li?t was opened on Mon rlay night after Governor Bickett's ad Iress and an additional sum of $210.0G subscribed making u total of cash and subscriptions contributed by the col ored people of Louisburg township, either at these mass meetings or through the various canvassers, some thing like $1500.00. Too much cannot foe said of the generous response of the colored people of our County to :hls noble work for our soldiers. Kay Obtain Labels From Local Red Croft*.

If peace should come Amt lea will be confronted with the responsibility and will be prompted by every dictate of humanity? to save from death as many as possible of the starving mil lions in Rcuman;;..

Killed Negro. Charlie Ayescue, who lives about five miles above Franklinton. was brought to' Louisburg Tuesday nlsht and placed in jail to await a hearing for killing a negro named Josh Kear ney. From what we could learn it seemc that the negro went to Ayescue's house and loft a message for him M>me thing to the effect "for him to return that sugar he stole from my buggy." When Ayescue arrived and received the message he .took his shot gun and went in search of the negro.
