‘ guesses whose ad it is will be given

The advertisement is one from one of
our regular advertisers. They have

present management has had charge
of the paper and the firm is familiar
to nearly everyone in Chatham.
Our good friend, Sam Teague, of
Silk Hope section, was in to see us

in weight and was the recipient of
several nice presents from his child
ren. He has many interesting things
to say about his trip and says he will
tell our readers about it in a letter
THE MAYPOLE DANCE.
Pittsboro people were surprised at
what they saw last Saturday • after
noon when they witnessed the May
pole dance by the children of the pri
mary deparment which took place in
the beautiful meadow just on the
Southern edge of town. Two poles
had been planted a few feet of each
other and at the top of each pole sev
eral long streamers of ribbon had j
been fastened. The little tots, boys
and girls, dressed in clothing of dif
ferent colors, gathered at each end oT
the ribbon and danced and crowned
the queen of May. It was a pretty
sight and it was something but few
of the spectators had ever seen.
Misses Burwell Patterson and Glen
nie Woodward must be congratulated
on the success of the first Maypole
dance that ever occurred in Pittsboro.

Build More Houses.
To show the need of more houses
in Pittsboro, the old Headen house,
wihch was moved to a location in the
rear of the jail, has been rented al
ready. It will take a month to get
it ready for occupation. Why not or
ganize a building and loan association
in Pitttsboro and build homes for the
peonle who wish to come here?
We know of several families who
wish to make this town their home
but cannot get houses to live in.
Going Out of Business.
By reference to our advertising col
umns it will be noticed that the firm

boro, are going out of business. Their
entire stock of clothing, shoes,

]l° IG’ Celebrated Here on Thursday i
of Next Week.
Next Thursday will be Confederate !
j memorial day in most of the Southern j
| States. Further north they have a;
I later date when the flowers are in ,
| bloom. In North Carolina and fur- :
j ther South the 10th ot May is cele- ;
brated in memory of Stonewall Jack
son, who died on that day. It is a
very beautiful cusom to garland the
graves of our dead heroes, and it be
gan immedately after the war, when
the Southern women formed the Me
morial Association. Later the work
was given over to their daughters,
the Daughters of the Confederacy.
In Pittsboro, at 4 o’clock next
Thursday the Winnie Davis Chapter,

Events in April and May, 1894, Tokl
in Brief Form.
On April 28tli a 12-year-old girl
was burned t odeath in Mecklenburg
county; on the 30th of April at War
ren Plains fire destroyed the postof
fice, a store and several other valu
able buildings. On the same date a
boiler at a saw mill at Williamston
exploded and killed one man, injur
ing seriously several others; on the
second day of May Mrs. Algelina Wil

suicide by shooting herself with a pis
Lost an Arm.
James Beal, who has been at work
in the Carolina Coal mine, near Cum
nock, had the misfortune to get an
arm blown off a day or two ago when
a stick of dynamite exploded in his
hand. A negro man with him had
one of his eyes put out. Mr. Beal is
said to be hurt otherwise, but prob
ably not seriously.
THE CASE DID IT.
Some weeks ago the editor bought
the 10x12 room that formed a part of
the ohl Headen house from L. N.
Womble. It was loaded on a big Kist
ler truck and bodily hauled to his
home a mile away, but in making a
sharp turn it took a “skid” and left
the truck. It being within 25 feet of
the desired location, the trouble to. re
load was thought unnecessary. Since
that time several attempts have been
made to roll it up the grade on roll
ers, skids, planks and otherwise but
all were unsuccessful. However. Mr.
Henry Bynum, county agent for the
Case tractor, came to our rescue and
placing two long pine poles under it
nc? skids he hitched his little 10-18
Case tractor to it and walked up that
bill without half a load, and he was
only a few minutes at it at that.
