Stewart, Editor. Care i . "... v . ... oa ; Watcliniaii Ine SUTESVILLE AND IREDELL COUNTY. When Does Easter Come? . Some Learned Views on This Subject. Statesvile Landmark. April 19th. R. W. Holland, of Ohn town ship, who was in the Landmark office this week, says that a few apples and blackberries will pfob ably be the extent of the fruit crop in his neighborhood this year. The peaches, pears, cher ries, quinces, etc., are about all killed. While blackberries are rarely injured by frost, the frost on the 11th of May last year re sulted in some damage to even this hardy fruit, but so far there is reason to expect a good crop this year and these with a few ap ples will be about the extent of the fruit crop. Mr, Holland be lieves the wheat is badly damaged but. its full extent cannot be esti mated until harvest. Adverting to Mel. Summer's statement that Easter comes after the fourth full moon of the yearn and will this year fall on the 28th, Mr. Holland calls attentions the rule which provides that when the moon fulls on a Sunday Easter is on the Sunday following. As the moon fulls on the 28th Easter, by this rule, wil b& due on the first Sunday in May. And now comes H. C. Cook and says the Dutch sign is not that Easter falls on the first Sunday after the fourth full moon of the year, but the first Sunday after the fourth full moon after Christ nias, which this year put Easter on the 81st of March, the date generally recognized. The notorious Fan Gillespie, one of the negroes charged with being implicated with the murder of the Lyerly family in Rowan county, last summ . r, but who was discharged for lack of evidence, was bef ore Mayor Steele for curs ing and fighting Sunday. There was two casWagamst her and she was fined in each case. ' This noted character has been a resident of Statesville since the trial of the case here. She has been cooking for Mat Massey, colored, and Sun day she made things lively on depot hill by cursing and fighting everybody comi ng, her way. Among others who had trouble with Fan was a negro named Claud Long who proceeded to slap her down. He was also in court yesterday morniDg and was fined. A Case ef Presence of Mind. W. L. Aljberty, who Jives near Crutch field, in this county, had a narrow and thrilling escape from death last Tuesday afternoon and an experience that he will not soon forget. While standing on the hounds of his wagon throwing off the remaining sticks of a load of wood, bis team became fright ened and suddenly dashed off, throwing Mr. Alberty down on the hounds. The wagon then struck a stump, throwing his head between the spokes of a rear wheel , and behind a standard. Fortunately he had the presence of mind to grasp the wheel and thus locked it. He remained in this position while the team was running a distance of 25 or 30 yards, holding on to the wheel . with grim desperation, fully re anzing tnac to relax nis grip meant instant death, for had the wheel revolved even a few inches his neck would have been broken. A Mr. Wood, who was with him, managed to stop the team and ex tricate Mr. Alberty from his per ilous position just s his strength iaiiea. wnue oaaiy snaKen up and bruised about tha neck and shoulders, Mr. Alberty was not ser iously injured.

Mrs. O. D. Morris returned home Sunday, after having spent many weeks in the sanitorium at Salisburv. Her condition is so much improved that promise of complete restoration to health eeems assured. This will be good uews to her many friends who have been solicitous as to her health. The weather damage to the fruit crop during the past fifteen days has been great, but cannot now be estimated. While the wind has been a source of annoy- . . i auce, it nas , proved a oiessing in disguise, in so completely dissi pating the moistuue. Tender ve getation is nearly all killed and wheat and oats injured. In the death of ber brother at Mt. Holly on Saturday, Mrs. E. M.

The last ray of hope for the preservation of the fruit crop was entirely eradicated Monday morn ing when the cold had reached the lowest degree. Locust Cor. Officer Recalls Memorable Days. Lieutenant Cabaniss, a retired United States officer has been a welcomed visitor to Fort Mill. The object of his visit was to in spect the Fort Mill Light Infant ry. So hearty "was his welcome that he could not refrain from recalling his visit to this section thirty years ago in the strenuous days of 1876, when Hampton suc ceeded in wresting the State gov ernment from tha rule of the ne groes. Lieutenant Cabaniss says he was in command of the gov ernment troops stationed here and at Rock Hill to keep guard over the election. Without trepida tion he recalled many incidents which at this late day were inter esting and mutually amusing. He recalled the fact that the Repub lican tickets were painted red so the negroes could identify them and the scheme of the whites hav ing theirs also printed in red and adroitly exchanging them for those of the negroes.

In the latter place it was said that dishes rattled and ornaments were knocked from the mantle in one house. In Charleston only a very few people knew of the shake un til after breakfast. From variouft points in the city, people report ed having been awakened by a rumple followed by three slight wave movements sufficient to identify, but not to disturb plas ters or chimn ys. It lasted about eight seconds, according to -some reports and was apparently from southeast to northwest. Whooping Cough.

In a recent issue of the Times we published an article iu regard to the attempted suicide of Mrs. Solomon Rogers, of No. 4, in which we stated: "It is stated that the attempt on her life was (caused by the bad conduct of one of her sous, which caised her much trouble." A member of the family writes us that Mrs. Rogers1 attempt on her life was not "caused by th bad conduct of her sons" but by a different cauee. The letter adds: "She has been vry norvous for some oime. The attempt was made through a nervous excitement and she could not overcome tbe uervousness while hf.r mind was somewhat affected. She is a christian woman, and would not have attempted such a thing had sha been entirely rieht at mind. As yet she cannot realize what she did. I trust you will correct the error."- Burglars entered the company store at China Grove last Tuesday night through a window on the second floor and took quite a lot of goods. Some of the articles taken were three suits of nice Qlothes, ttn pairs of pants, four pairs of shoes, ten watches, silver and gold-filled, fifteen gold-plated finger riugs, two suit cases, cravats, suspenders and quiie a lot of other wearing apparel.

Sold by Grimes Drug Store. LEXIN6T0N AND DAVIDSON COUNTY. The "Judge" Phillips Thinks There Will be Plenty of Fruit. - Lexlncton Dispatch, AprU 17th. Judge Phillips sticks to it that there will be plenty of fruit. He was telling this to a farmer Sat urday, who laughed unbelieving ly. "If there is any left, it is pretty tough," he said, "and will He so tough nobody can eatit. The judge, however, was undis turbed. He knows positively that there will be an abandance of fruit. Although not here ground hog day, he claims to be in pos session of facts that prove beyond a reasonabl doubt that the cold snrfp has not damaged the crop any great amount. As to wheat, he is rather "jubious," and thinks perhaps when it rune up the joints will show a decided weakness and the stalks will fall over. How much water do you sup posa was used at the fire . Friday morning? The stapdpipe, to be gin witi, was full, which means about 148,000 gallons. About 149,000 was in the reservoir. The standpipe was half full when they got through, the reservoir wss empty and the pumpa had been throwing 80 gallons per minute, under a pressure of 100 pounds, directly into the pipes. Four streams of water werej playing most of the time. On the whole about 300,000 gallons, or perhaps even more than that, was used. There was a veritable creek 'on Depot street where the water es caped. ' The people who have held up the Southbound, demanding four prices for rights of way, are now scared to death lest the railroad has fallen through for keeps, and they won't even get the two prices offered by the Southbound for rights of way. Lexington and Davidson county have lost this new railroad partly on account of local opposition, prejudice and an effort to gouge the jcompany, and whether you think so or not, this loss is the hardest lick Lex ington has had, or perhaps ever will have. Part of the wall in the burned block fell Sunday afternoon and the entire building, including the Everhart portion, will probably be adjudged unsafe and condemn ed. This means that a new build ing will be erected on the site, and there is strong talk of making a Shree-story hotel while they are at it.
