Mr. and Mrs. Carmey Fox, here yes
terday afternoon at 3:30 o’clock and
was attended by a large number of
friends and relatives. The death of

Soy Bean Fertilization
As a rule, there is not much at
tention paid to the fertilization of
this crop, some people having the idea
that it does not need it. However, on
clay soils, the Division of Agronomy
at Raleigh recommends about 400
pounds per acre of a fertilizer ana
lysing 12 per cent phosphoric acid,
and 4 per cent potash. On soils in a
high state of fertility, it may not be
necessary to use the ammonia, but
for soils in a medium or poor state
of fertility, it would be a good prac
tise to use 3 per cent ammonia in
Soy Bean Seeding, and Cultivation
The general, and best practice in
seeding soy beans is to plant in rows
four feet apart with the plants two
t;o three inches in the row. By em
ploying this method, only twenty to t
thirty pounds of seed are required per
acre, whereas if sown broadcast or
drilled, sixty to ninety pounds of seed
per acre are required. Row planting
can be done with a cotton, earn or
bean planter or by hand, and when
drilled, the ordinary grain drill is'
used. Give about three cultivations

was caught in Sanford Saturday night
and was later lodged in the Chatham
Mashburn, a tough youngster of
twenty-odd, was convicted of steal
ing an automobile, or of some such
charge, two or three years ago and
was sentenced to the penitentiary.
Escaping, he is said to have been
the ring leader of the Red Hillers who
have born accused of so many depre
dations in the Carbonton section.
More than one attempt has been made
to catch him. Only a few days ago
Sheriff Blair and a big band of depu
ties spent a night in that section seek
ing him and possibly others wanted
for general cussedness, but without
avail. Two or three days later, he
stood off with a drawn knife a son of
the Chatham deputies, who had at
tempted to arrest him and take him
to his father.
It is supposed that Mashburn will
be taken back to the penitentiary to
finish his term, and that afterward
he will stand trial for alleged recent
violations of the laws.

Z *?H j,
VOL. 48. NO.
HELD UNDER PEACE BOND
Former Editor of Record who Posed
Here as Reformer and Strict
Prohibitionist Before Dur
The following article appearing in
the Durham Herald Sunday morning
caused a good deal of talk in Pitts
boro, where Mr. * Shaw as editor of
this paper posed as a staunch prohi
bitionist and reformer in general,
and assailed most harshly the charac
ters of several of the staunch citizens
of. this county. Mr. Shaw began
drinking again, if he had ever quit,
soon after selling the Record. The
present editor on one occasion at
least advised him that he was ruin
ing himself, as probably did a num
ber of his friends. Accordingly, it I
was no great surprise to learn that,
the treacherous drink, which he had
fought here with such apparently
great zeal, had got in its devastating
work. The Herald article fallows:
“C. G. Shaw Placed Under Peace
Bond by Judge Paul C. Graham
For Thretening to Kill Wife”
“A storm which began about 11
o’clock Friday night on the matri- 1
monial sea of Mr. and Mrs. C. G.
Shaw, and which raged for approxi
mately 12 hours, was calmed down I
is Judge Paul Graham’s recorder’s
court Saturday morning. Mr. Snaw |
was arrested by local police officers i
said to have threatened his wife with :
bodily harm, and after he had knock 1 - i
ed out the glass in the front door of
a neighbor’s house where Mrs. Shaw.
had fled for safety.
| “When his case was called yester- ,
day, charging boisterous cursing
and complaint and peaee warrant,
Mr, Shaw declined to offer any evi
dence in his behalf, allowing Judge |
Graham to base his decision on the
testimony of Mrs. Shaw and John
Hutchins, to whose house Mrs. Shaw'
escaped after her life is alleged to
have been threatened.
Mrs. Shaw was the first witness
to take the stand, she testifying that
she had been married for 24 years,
that her husband came home about
11 o’clock Friday night in a highly
intoxicated condition, that she suc
ceeded in putting him to bed, after
which he threatened to kill her.
‘“Are you afraid of your husband?’
' Prosecuting Attorney William B.
Umstead asked Mrs. Shaw. ‘l’m' des
; perately afraid of him,’ she replied
in a nervous voice, Mrs,. Shaw ioiu
• the court ♦ that. she could • not live
. -with her ’husband again, and due to
. the fact that she was physically un
-11 able to make her own living, she
wanted some provision made by the
court, which would insure her of
an income. > Mrs. Shaw was very
nervous during the trial, and at time*:
; “Mr. Hutchins testified that'Mrs.
Shaw came to his house .early Friday
morning and asked him if he would
| not try to get her husband , back to
! bed. He succeeded in getting him
i back to bed, and remained with him
until a son of Mr .and Mrs. shaw
came home from work. He testified
that Mr. Shaw later knocked out
the glass in his front door. Mr.
Shaw’s hand was badly cut where he
smashed the glass out of the door.
After hearing the evidence in the case
udge Graham ordered a fine of $5 and
costs on the charge of boisterous
cursing, and ordered the defendant
to give bond in the sum of SSO for his
appearance in court the first Tuesday
in each month for a period of six
months to show good behavior to all,
and especially to Mrs. Shaw.”

THE LEE HARDWARE COMPANY
The Lee Hardware Company, one
of the leading mercantile concerns
of Sanford, has had a sad and serious
loss in the death of its founder Mr.
J. R. Bowers, but is still in capable
hands. The other members of the
company are Mr. T. A. Wicker and
Mr. Henry C. Roberts, the latter an
old Robeson boy whose family the
editor of the Record knew well. These
gentlemen, with Mrs. Bowers, will
will continue the former broad and
liberal policy of the company, and
many be counted upon to give their
patrons a real and efficient service.
Only recently the company secured
a contract from the government for
the lease of a new building they are
erecting across the street from the
present Sanford post office as a new
seat for that institution. The death
of Mr. Bowers is not in any manner
interfering in the execution of this
plan. The building will be a consider
able improvement over the present
one occupied as a post office.
