DEATH OF MR. ANDREW.
We are in receipt of information
of the death of Mr. T. G. Andrew, of
Bonlee, on Sunday, April 29 at :30
p. m. He was in his 73rd year and was
buried at Hope Methodist church on
Monday, the 30th, at 3 p. m., having
been a member of that church for
many years. The services were con
i ducted by Revs. Pike and Highfill.
Mr. Andrew was twice married, his
first wife being Miss Bettie Jones, who
j died some 20 years ago. To this union
was bom four boys and a girl. His
• second wife was Miss Lina Foster and
! to the latter union was bom two boys
and one girl.

this time two of his children are ill

Mr. J. L. Glosson says that Mr. An

true neighbor—a good Christian man
i and will be greatly missed in the com
munity. This is a grand tribute to
anyone and we sympathize with the
bereaved family in the loss of their

WORK OF MENTAL DELINQUENT.
The other day down at Lumberton i
when some men, white men at that,
took two women out and horse-whip- i
ped them—one of the most dastard- i
ly acts ever recorded in the history ;
of North Carolina was written.
The men accused one of the women :
of having neglected her husband when i
the later was ill and such was the
cause given for the administration of '
the whipping, all of which may or l
may not be true but whether it is or 1
isn’t is entirely beside the point. ]
No private individual has the right i
to take the administration of. justice 1
into his own hands. The government
spends millions of dollars yearly for
that purpose and it generally accom
plishes its object but for full grown, 1
(at least physically) able-bodied men i
to take it upon themselves to take 1
helpless women out against their will
and give them a beating displays a
lower intellect than we thought exist
ed in the human race. Any man who .
falls to such a low plane of thought
and actoin should be placed in confine
ment, not allowed to range at large
for there is nothing that he wouldn’t
stoop to and he is a public menace.
The law should go the limit in the
conviction and sentencing of this gang
of vicious and fiendish desperadoes
for such twisted and distorted brains
as these creatures must necessarily
possess to perpetrate such an outrage
is capable of evolving other schemes
that will do permanent and irrepara
ble damage not to mention their re
ceiving just punishment for the crime

With a Large Audience.
The music recital given by the pu

and reflected credit upon the young
performers and the training they are
receiving in this department of the
Decidedly unique and entertaining
was the program given by members of
the junior and senior classes at the
hall Saturday evening. The music
rendered by these young people was
indeed delightful, the Hawaiian selec
tions claiming especial applause.

“taking off” of the faculty by the se
niors, this being so cleverly done that
the instructors and the audience read
ily recognized the little peculiar
traits characteristic of themselves.
Those impersonating were Mildred
Dorsett as Prof. Husketh; Evelyn Fox

Judd; Sallie Fogleman as Miss Beav

Vara Campbell as Miss Farebee; Joy
ce Hudson as Mrs. Husketh; Myrtle

M. Fox at their hospitable home. The
class colors of green and white were
effectiyelv carried out in the artistic
decorations and refreshments of block
cream and cake were served.
