| A WORD FOR DUMB BRUTES.
P Well-Known Chatham Man Writes an
J Dr. J. H. Ihrie, now located at Wen
> dell, and known by so many people
h in Chatham county, ,sends us the fol
p lowing splendid letter:
? Hon Colin G. Shaw, Editor. Chatham
| Record, Pittsboro, .C.
u Dear Sir: In your last issue of The
< Chatham Record there were two items
P that attracted my attention very for
!) cibly, the first one mentioned herein
is ni reference ot the cyclone as men
tioned in your paper, being 30 years
ago and blowing the roof off the court
house of said town.
Os course, you are not expected to
know how long ago this visited Pitts
i boro, but the writer remembers very
I distinctly the storm or cyclone refer
\ red to.
j I was a very small boy in knee
I pants, the storm first came from the
\ east and this is when the roofing was
torn off and for years a crumped mass
of this roofing was to be found
. against the fence runnng from the
smoxe house of the late L. J. Haugh
ton to his garden, and was to be seen
• a few years before I left Pittsboro
years ago this coming October 14.
I could not have been more than 8
■ or 10 years of age at the time. Was
52 years old last February. *
The storm came back from the west
’ blowing down fences and small build
| ings. My father’s place was east
)of the late L. J. Haughton’s, this
storm came back from the west leav
ing fences down and 8 or 10 head of
Uncle Lawrence Haughton’s cattle in
my father’s lot. Our cows were away
from home, were found on the lot
of the late James Moore, east of our
home place, owned by the late Dr. H.
T. Chapin, sold by the latter to Jas.
Scurlock, (colored) who after many
years, from what I have been able to
iearn from your valuable paper, the
school board paid Jim Scurlock SIO,OOO
for this same place. Have never
learned what Dr. Chapin got for the
Jas. Moore property, but Dr. Chapin
paid $450 for it. I was told this by
the daughter of Mr. Moore, Miss Ma
mie, now Mrs. Woolridge, of western
North Carolina. I mention these items
not to criticise but as a matter of in
terest to the younger people and old
er people who can compare the past
prices of property with the present
values of same.
And then, if I may, ask them if
they cannot find me reason at any rate .
w T hy taxes are higher at present then
they were many years ago. By the
way many other reasons could be
given but time and space will not per
mit my going into the tax question in
Mr. Editor, one of the most com
mendable and most praiseworthy arti
cles T remember of seeing in your pa
per since you became its worthy edi
tor, is entitled, “Something Should be
Done.” Under this heading you have
come out unhesitatingly against those
who would cruelly treat the dumb ani
mals, half feed, abuse in any way the
horse or mule that pulls the plow by
the week day and draws the vehicle
on Sunday that the family may ride
to church, or even to some place else.
This animal or animals that does a
big Dart in the feeding of the people
of the world is entitled to kind treat
ment, consideration at the hand of its
owner. The iwner of this valuable
animal who isn’t disposed to beat his
horse or mule, £jnd other dumb brutes
of any kind, dependent upon him for
food and protection, (including the
dog, the latter will usually but man
to shame with gratitude) should be
made to do so. * You are right, Mr.
Shaw, go to it, never let ud in this
fight until you have scratched deep
enough under the skin of man where
vou will usually find some spark of
humanitv. Most people have more
or less humanity when you go deep
enough to find it, and open their eyes
that they may see this inhuman er
You are in position to do a world of
good in this matter and 1 am trusting
and living in hopes of seeing more
from your pen about the brutal treat
ment accorded the work stock, the
milk cow, dog, etc.
, . I believe there are a few who be
lieve some animals are devoid of feel
ing but a great mistake is made in
this and a few seem even to think they
will have to give an account some day
for this wanton, inhuman treatment
to animal kind. The law offthe land
should be used for protection of these
animals, the great and supreme law
of God will com* just as sure as the
“crime” is committed, but only in time
to punish the offender and too late
to save the suffering animal.
Agitate this and a pleasant reward
Most sincerely yours

A SOUTH CAROLINA HORROR.
Camden, S. C., May 19. —By the ov
erturning of a kerosene lamp at a
play in a country school house, eight
miles from Camden, caused the lives
of 73 people to be snuffed out. Sixty
two of the dead were buried in the
Columbia, S. C., May 19. The
Cleveland school house .fire with its
death toll of more than 70 ranks as
the second greatest disaster in the his
tory of South Carolina and first in
point of number of immediate deaths,
according to records searched out here
today. The Charleston earthquake in
1886 ranks first with a total of 83
deaths, but only 27 of these perished
immediately, the others dying at in
tervals over several days. A coincid
ence remarked today was that the
Cleveland fire occurred within three
miles of the scene of another great
disaster, in which 24 persons lost their
lives. This was the capsizing of a
raft at Boykins pond during a celebra
tion May 5, 1860. The Charleston
hurricane of 1911 resulted in 15
deaths and there have been a number
of instances where storms have kill
ed a dozen *or more.
A town in Florida has appointed a
mosquito engineer.” A lot of fre
quenters of summer resorts want to
know what a mosquito needs of an
engineer.-—Detroit New?. .

try to be present every Sunday. Let
this be our slogan, “On time, in

school will'be the result.
