Mr, Black's Scheme to Utilize Wheatteft
by the Hail Storm.
Concord Times. June 28th.
We have refrained from giving
any report of "the crop damage
from the hailstorm that visited
this section two, weeks ago. hop
ing that the ' recuperating powers
of favorable seasons would so
mend the situation that that we
would ! feel pretty well after all ;
but two week's of fairly growing
weather has done little toward re
moving pur seuse of disappoint
ment because of the irretrievable
loss in the pbsent ;rop. The
one-third to one-half of the cot
ton crop that was. left us has
made such little growth that it
actually looks smaller than it
did three weeks ago. Unless peo
ple get one hundred dollars a bale
for this year's cotton they will
come out the small end of the
horn. Carriker Cor. j
Hall Black seeing that the hail
had fixed his wheat sb he couldn't
cut it, built a hog pen on wheels
and had his hogs to move their
washing to the wheat field. When
they would eat all the wheat in
the area of the pen they would
move the pen on further, aud in
this way they were perfectly sel
sustaining. A neighbor told me
that they even rolled their porta
ble tenement from the field to the
house whenever they wanted slop,
but he must riot ask me to vouch

The Engineer Proves He Had Steam.
Farmer Loses Heavily by Lightning.
Lexington Dispatch, Jane 86th.
Wheat harvest will be over this
week in almost every community.
As a usual thing the crop is better
than expected, although in some
places it is very poof.
We hear that Albert Whortou,
who lives near Clemmons, suffered
the loss of his barn and .much of
its contents Sunday afternoon be
tween 2 and 3 o'clock. Lightning
struck the building daring a ter
rific storm and as the family was
shut up closely in the house,
nothing was known of the fire
until a colored, man living some
distance away" brought the word.
Besides feedstuff and vehicles,
seven head of horses perished in
W. M. Cross, engineer at the
power house, denies that on the
night of the fire at Mr. Burk
head's there was insufficient steam
and therefore no pressure atfirst.
He says, moreover, that he sound
ed the alarm whistle promptly on
receiving the 'phone message.
The . trouble, he claims, was that
the firemen did not cut off the
standpipe so that the pumps could
work directly on the mains, and
that until this was done, both
pumps were running full speed,
pumping into the standpipe. In
the melee that night the top of
the hideous fire whistle was blown
clear off, which Mr. Cross main
tains without fear of successful
contradiction, is proof positive
that he did have some steam on.
Vice president J. M. Culp, of
the Southern, announces that the
double track between Salisbury
and Greensboro will be completed
and put in use by the first of the
month. Some paits of the new
track have been used for some
time. This section' of the South
era, or from-iJharlotfce to Dan
ville, is the busiest portion of the
road and is often so full of trains
that it is dfficult to handle them.
Long freights have stood on sid
ings throughout a night, unable
to get into Spencer. This double
track is of inestimable value to
this part of the country.
J. G. Walser, who spent a lit
tle time at the Jamestown expo
sition, tells us that the big show
is all right. It is near comple-
tion, ana is reaay ior me most
critical person now. He says that
the tale of overcharges at the ho
tels and other places is not true
now. You get a room from fifty
cents up and the restaurants give
you anything you want at any
price. An average citizen can go
down and stay for not more than
two dollars a day, and surely. tbat
is little enough to see the- great
est show on earth.

Baltimore. Md., June 26.
President Roosevelt and members
of his official family "were han
dled without gloves by speakers
at the tenth annual meeting of
the Afro-American Council, which
began a three-days' convention
Senator Foraker was a favorite
ani every mention of his name
was received with vociferous ap
plause. Bishop Alexander W&t
ters, of Jersey City, president of
the council, made the principal
address at the night session. He
called the Ohio Senator the "no
blest Roman of them all," and
places him in the same category
with Charles SumneT. He claimed
that th Vfo&ien-Jd the negro

Spartanburg, S. C, June 28.
Rev. Dr. Leu G. Brouhtou, who
has-been conducting revival ser
vices in the First Baptist church
here for ten day1 or more, brought
his meeting to a close this morn
ing. During the course of his
sermon he made an attack on the,
Charlotte Observer because of cer
tain editorial utterances in that
paper with reference to hi cru
sade against cigarette smoking,
which were copied in a local
newspaper. . W ,
Mr Broughton U'said that Hue
Charlotte Observer had b8en try
ing to destroy the force of his
fight againBt cigarettes for ten
years. There were two reasons
for this one because the men
who manage the paper' are liquor
ied cigarette men ; another rea
son, he said, is because the paper
is a sheet of the American Tobac
co Company. .
In spite of the Charlotte Ob
server he said he still stuck to his
statement that a man who smokes
cigarettes for ten years will lie
and steal. Special to Charlotte

A Life Filled With Promise BoogM Sud
denly to a Sad Ei. s
Durfiam, June 27. Will tan M.
Smith, son of Rev. T. Siith,
of Concord, killed himself 'here
this afternoon. He wasa gradu
ate of Trinity College, having ta
ken his master's degre'it h i s
month, and for three jweeks has
been in the employ of the Ameri
can Tobacco Company. No reas
on , is assigned for the rash act
other than that he was tired of
the fight with life and ;jgae up
all hopes. t
William Smith, better kjbwn
among his more intimate friends
anS baseball enthnsiastsfas ,rBil-
lie," had been captain of the
team for two years, playing as
short stop. In addition to his
athletic work in the college he
won honors in his studies, was
president of his class in his seni-
or year, manager oi tne innity
Archive and also manager of the
South Atlantic Quarterly. He
made good at all these.
Soon after leaving college he
accepted a position wit h t h e
American Tobacco Company . in
Durham aud was assigned to learn
the business. This morning at
about 10 o'clock he went to the
manager and told him tha his
services were not sucn aB to give
him (Smith) satisfaction and sug
gested resigning. He -was cheer
ed up and told to go to a t doctor
and get some help' that would re-
ieve him of his depression and
meiancnoiy irom wnicn no was
suffering. He did as directed
and then went to his room. When
the medicine was delivered before
o'clock this afternoon Mb dead
body was- found in the room that
he occupied. V; , J "
From tin circumstances in the
case it was evident -that he stood
before a mirr.tr and there fired
he.fatal pistol shot through his
nzain, lie nad 'undressed pre
paratory to retiring as directed by
the doctor, and the general im-
-pression is tuat ne conceived tne
idea of self-destruction but a mo
ment before the act was commit
ted, elt was probably on the im
pulse of the moment.
The remains of Mr. Smith were
taken from here to Concord this
evening, being joined here by the
mother and two sisters who had
been visiting in Clinton, this
State. The only brother who was
not in the sad family party is T.

Were Foraker Hade President.
Just suppose Foraker were to
get the nomination and be elected
president. What a rush there
would be of neg roes to the
White House seek i n g feder
al offices ; and many would
get them, especially in the South.
Mr. Foraker's election would be a
calamity to the conn try. It
would reopen the race question in
the South with all the intensity
and bitterness of reconstruction
days, and would bring to the
white people of the North such
experiences in race antagonism as
they have jlever dreamed of. We
do not supnose he would appoint
many negroes to office in those
states, but his election would give
to the negroes there more than at
the South the feeling of having
won the victory over the whites
in a contest based on the race
question. Mr. Foraker's speeches
to negroes in Ohio were . of the
moBt violent and race prejudice
producing kind. They showed an
animosity toward the South which
it is hard t3 realize that a citizen
of this country -could entertain
against the people of any section.
Not only that, but his effort ha J

order to prevent his negro sup

will be a sad day for the country
and especially- for the South on
