WHO IS MY NEIGHBOR?
The question, “Who is my neigh
’ bor?” has for ages been passing at
times, through the minds of men. He
is the one, be he for or near, that
helps us when we are in need. It may
be we need some one to labor for us
or it may be we need a cheerful word,
a bit of encouragment or even a plea
sant smile. Some weeks ago J. F.
Durham, of Brown’s Chapel commun
ity, suffered a broken leg. Since that
time he has been confined practically
. all to time to his bed and room. He
being dependent on his farm for a
’ living, naturally felt discouraged and
heart sick. But since his accident his
neighbors and friends have continu
ously given him aid in many ways.
Some helped in breaking his land and
some in getting his cotton planted,
and last Friday, May 4th, they went
with horses, plows, harrows, planters
etc., and prepared and planted his
corn crop, about twelve acres.
There were 27 horses and 21 men
at work until this was done. It was
a beautiful sight to see so many peo
ple working with merry hearts and
willing hands doing something for
their neighbor and good friend. Mr. i
Durham appreciates so much the I
many things that are being done for
He has proven that he is a neighbor
worth while by the many good things j
he has done for others, always will- 1
ing to aid anyone he could .and his
neighbors appreciate and love him. If
we would all be diligent in doing for
others the little things that do us no
harm but help and encourage others
life would be more pleasant and we
would all be happier.
We will all, after this life is over,
only be remembered by what we have
done in life, be it good or bad.
The undersigned having this day
qualified .as administratrix of the es
tate of D. R. McManus, deceased, late
of Chatham county, this is to notify
all persons holding claims against the
said estate to present the same to the

I * HENDLEY’S COMMENTS * j
i * *!
■ ♦ Bits of Opinion Noted. *
The school trustees at Parkton, in
Robeson county, have certainly con
trived to place themselves in an em
They refused to let J. W. Bailey
| speak there at the commencement ex-
I ercises of their school because they
i seemed to think that such a speech
| would cause the loss of a few votes j
for McLean, who is contemplating a
race for gubernatorial honors in the
j State at the next election, but af
ter they had refused to let him come
i them and it became common knowl
: edge in the community they reniged
: and asked Mr. Bailey to fill the en
gagement as commencement speaker
but Mr. Bailey had consummated oth
er plans and stated that he would be
unable to come.
Now the “Petty Politicians of Park
j ton” have certainly played hob. They
j have lost more votes to Mr. McLean
than any speech Mr. Bailey or anyone
else could hope to turn and at the
same time haven’t helped to raise the
; reputation of their community as there
i has been considerable manifestation
i of Ku Klux Klan spirit in that com
munity and many people have drawn
the conclusion that Mr. Bailey’s re
cent attacks on the Klan had a great
deal of weight in the decision of the
trustees to inform Mr. Bailey that
, his services as speaker there could be
very conveniently dispensed with.
Klan dmonstrations in any commun
ity is bound to reflect on its character
lin the estimation of fair-minded
| American citizens and Robeson is suc
ceeding in establishing for itself a re
putation as a Klux stronghold and the
action of the school trustees at Park
ton hasn’t added much to its assets.
Without a doubt the trustees did a
good job of bean-spilling.
AN EPOCH IN AVIATION.
Another American aerial triumph
was recorded last Thursday when
Lieutenants Macßeady and Kelly
brought their big monoplane to a safe
landing at San Deigo, Cal., after com
pleting a transcontinental flight over
the North Amercan continent. The
distance was approximately 2,700
miles and was covered in a little less
than 27 hours flying time. The avia
tors were in good physical condition
when they arrived at San Deigo after
their record-breaking flight.
These two young men have develop
ed into real leaders in American avia
tion. They have broken numerous re
cords, the latest one before the trans
continental flight being their own
former endurance record of sustained
flight about a fixed point.
The fete of the two lieutenants
places San Francisco and New York
within a twenty-seven hour journey
of each other. Heretofore it has re
| quired two or three times as fang to
i bridge the distance that separates
these two cities and just so much
facilitated American commerce and
industry. The accomplishment pro
mises far-reaching results for it is
now an established fact and not some
body’s pipe dream that the United
j States can be crossed in a continuous,
i non-stop flight at an average speed
• of more than 100 miles an hour.
The Pacific coast and the west does
j not now seem such a distant country ;
to many of us almost a foreign coun
try and the east and west are now ir
line to enter upon closer relationship
more sympathetic understanding and
all because of this wonderful feat oi
two young men. The nation will be
more closely united, made more com
pact and stronger because of it.
' Macßeady and Kelly are now plan
ning an attempt to encircle the glob°
via the air route and here is success
to them. They have done a great dea 1
for their country 7 , more than many
, realize. Long may they wave.

ABOUT THE FAIR.
Don’t Forget the Big Fair Dates,
October 16, 17, 18 and 19.
The officers of the big Chatham
county Fair are intensely interested
in its success, and are determined that
although former fairs have been j
praiseworthy, the one for this year,
if their attention, labor and efforts
will accomplish it, shall be pre-emin
ently a record-breaking event.
Contrary to the custom of waiting
until summer months arrive before
beginning the work of acquainting the
people of this county, and especially
those whose names we have recorded
as our patrons of last year, with our
ambitious plans for this year, we are
commencing now to show them that
we have neither forgotten our friends
nor are we unappreciative of the sup
port they have given us in the past.
The people of this good county of
Chatham have always worked in con
junction with the fair and to them
much praise is due for our past suc
cesses. The same cooperative efforts
will this year give us a fair unsur
passed among the county fairs of the
Reports from all parts of this coun
