It Wants Free Convicts.
Deputy Sheriff Rivers has served j
papers on Capt John R. Smith, su- j
perintent of the peaitentiary, for fail- j
ure to furnish fifty convicts to Mc- j
Dowell county, in accordance with a
law passed by the last Legislature.
This law provides that the peniten
tiary shall furnish the commissioners
of McDowell with fifty convicts, tools,
guards, build stockades for their safe-j
keeping-, feed them and pay trans-;
portation. All that the county has
to do is to furnish an engineer to
superintend and plan the work.
Why take Johnson's
Chill & Fever Tonic?
Because it cures the
most stubborn case
of Fever in ONE DA Y.
After the road has been completed
1 tie prisoners are to be returned
The superintendent has refused to
comply with the law on the ground
that it is unjust to other sections and
counties of the State; that it would
be heavily taxing all the other coun
ties of 'the State for the benefit of one,
and is therefore unconstitutional.
The case is to be heard before
Judge Hoke, at Marion, on June 11,
at chambers. The action is brought
by the county commissioners and is
for the pupose of enforcing compli
ance with the law. News and Ob-

the sugar beet can be grown in profit- I

and (2) that the cane-sugar industry
can also be largely developed. So

Hillsboro, H C, May 29. Mrs.
Annie Cameron, relict of Hon. Paul
C. Cameron, died at her residence
here to-day in the 83rd year of her
age. The deceased was a daughter
of Chief Justice Thomas Ruffin, and
leaves three brothers surviving her.
F"or many years she was mistress
of a large household and many ser
vants at Fairintosh, and looked well
to the ways of her household and eat
not the bread of idleness. Her home
in Hillsboro was the delight of many
hearts, and a wide circle of relatives
and friends enjoyed her society, and
sought her sympathy and counsel.
Two daughters and one son remain
of her own family, with a number of
grand children, both of deceased and
Rest has come at the end of a long
pilgrimage, and the memory of her
many virtues, and loving kindness in
sickness anel distress, is the sweetest
consolation to those who mourn her
loss, and call her blessed.

"The people sending money to
the Conscience Fund of the United
States Treasury are not known,"
wiites Clifford Howard in the June
Ladies' Home Journal. "They never
present themselves at the Treasury,
and they take care to conceal their
identity by making their contribu
tions anonymously or under assumed
names In a great many instances
the contribution is made through a
minister or priest, which is done, per
haps, lor the effect of not only more
surely hiding the identity of the pen
itent, but ol adding sanctity to his
contribution. Others again make
their peace offerings, through friends
or relatives, anel even jailers some
times perlorm this duty for remorse
ful criminals. As a further precau
tion against discovery many of these
people endeavor to disguise their
handwriting, or they have their com
munications written on the typewriter
while cot a few forward their money
without a line or word of writing. It
is always taken for granted that such
remittances are intended for the con
science fund, as it is reasonable to
presume that no one would send
money in that loose fashion unless it
were for the purpose of expiating
some secret crime against the govern
ment. "Occasionally some one will re
mit by check or moner-order, in
which case, of . course, his name be
comes known ; anel once in a great
while some man will have the cour
age to deliberately confess his guilt
! and sign his name to the communi
cation ; but such instances are rare,
for there appears to be a general fear
among these contrite people that, al
though they clear their consciences
by making reparation to the govern
ment, the law may still have the right
to lay hold of them for their mis
deeds.' CASTOR I A
