News Items of General Interest From
Neighbors at Bennett.
| Bennett, Oct. 29.—The first car load
of cotton that was ever shipped from
here was on October 25th. This car
of cotton was sold by Mr. W C
Brewer to Middleton & Co., Charles
ton, S. C., through a local dealer at
, Sanford, N. C. The buyer states that
| the cotton m this section is of finer
grade and the car he purchased will
i be exported to Liverpool. The soil in
, and around Bennett is well adapted
j to cotton and is not of that red sub
stance and clay that discolors the
lmt. No doubt there will be more
acreage around here next year.
The farmers in and around Ben
nett are about through husking corn
and sowing small grain,
j An interesting auction sale was had
here Saturday when Mr. George Kidd
had a horse auctioned off at the price
of seventy-five cents. The horse ap-
I peared to be about seven years old
i in the eyes, but was several feeds be
-1 hind in looks. The three dollar bridle
made the animal show up better, but
the onlookers seemed to prefer not
to undertake to feed the animal
through the winter. Mr. Troy Rich
ardson was the highest bidder.
Mr. George Estridge has returned
to Bennett. He moved last week to
Greensboro, but he says Bennett was
the best home and cheapest place to
live. The writer was one of the first
persons to build a home in Bennett.
We have in mind several folks who
have left Bennett but returned later.
The Christian church here has ex
tended a call to Rev. Thomas Green,
who was once pastor of the church
before, having been succeeded by Rev.
G. R. Underwood.
The Baptist members and friends
of their pastor, Rev. J. C. Kidd, sur
prised him with a Sunday dinner at
home, after he preached. Rev. Kidd
took charge of this church last Sun
day as regular pastor.
The dinner was a great surprise to
Mr. Kidd, but he was highly pleased.
The best pie eaters were Dr. Denson
and W. C. Brewer.

1 PISTOL, LIQUOR, DEAD NEGRO.
Harvey Pritchard, a 19-year old ne
-1 gro, was lodged in jfcil Monday night,
| charged with shooting an unknown ne
gro at a frolic given by a colored
woman who lives near Ebenezei
church in New Hope township.
It seems that he had bought himself
a new pistol and he wanted to try
it to see how it would shoot. He tank
ed up on liquor, went to the frolic
and picked a fuss with the strange
negro about a woman. The pistol did
its work alright. The wounded negro
was taken to a hospital in Raleigh,
but it was said there was no chance
for him to live.
