C | gO|| Inc Uufiiidiit Record /l 1 m ♦ i l + r ~ r' ' - AI Smltfc Whia Prob »Wy Pmtcratfc-rJWmßton Coun ty Back in Democratic Column Sampson Probably Elects Part of Democratic Ticket Probably more - interest was felt in this section as to the result of the New York election than as to that of the county and state. In New York the fortunes of A1 Smith were at. Stake. But the Governor won a gain by at least a quarter of a mil lion votes, and can still become a formidable candidate for the Demo cratic nomination. There were Dem ocrats here who would have been glad to see Smith’s majority so cut as to eliminate him from the presidential contest, thus saving a possible war.-' fare over Catholicism in the next Democratic convention, and in the reg ular election, if Smith should be the Democratic nominee for president. Wagner the Democratic candidate for the U. S. senate from New York also won over his opponent Senator Wadsworth. Only a lew new Demo cratic senators are needed to make * the senate Democratic and it may be that they have been chosen, The President’s own endorsee for the sen ate in Massachusetts, Senator But ler, was defeated. The State has gone Democratic by 1 possibly 100,000, as far; as can be de j termined from Wednesday morning I reports. Johnston county, which un i expectedly went Republican two years ■ ago, has again gone Democratic, by 1000 majority it is estimated. In Sampson county, where the Re | publicans have held long sway, it is possible that part of the Democratic ticket has been elected. The convic tion of the Republican party boss two years ago for robbing the pension and ■ other funds started the push in Samp son. Internal differences in the party have also had their bearings. Sev eral prominent Republicans have been urging that the Republicans of county do as the Democrats of John-"' ston did two years ago, contending that the Republican ring in the coun ty had too long been entrenched for the good of the county. The state and county tickets were printed last week. If any one is in doubt as to who has been elected look up the Democratic tickets in that pa per. I ; , BRICKHAVEN | Mr and Mrs. H. A. Harrington and family, of Corinth, were Saturday ] guests of Mr. and Mrs. Lonnie Mims. Mr. C. S. Harrington and children ‘ spent the week-end with Mr. Mermon Harrington at Holly Springs.

CABBAGE PLANT GROWING It is surprising how big some ap parently little things can become. Last winter we advertised cabbage plants _‘cr sale by Mr. A. B. Clegg, as we ire this year. He reports that despite njury by cold to the plants he sold 300 thousand and more. His seed for bhis season’* planting cost nearly ?ICO. Mr. W. B. Harper, of Pittsboro also ordered $15.00 worth of seed. COTTON GINNINGS The cotton ginned in Chatham county up to October 18 counted only 2,564 bales as against 6,850 last year to the same date. The ginnings in the state were 497,151 and 711,268. Anson was one county that had gin ned more this year than last. PITTSBORO, X. C„ CHATHAM COUNT?, THURSDAY. NOVEMBER 4,1926 Mrs. Burns GoesFSshiHg Pittsboro Lsdyt && Delightful Outing at WhftenriJle and Seashore (Mrs. H. E. Norris)) Mrs. Robt. M. Burns ia> iiast back from a visit to her son. BL EL at Whiteville, and expresses, herself as, delighted with her visit,, and particu larly at the opportunity given her to enjoy the sport of and fish ing in larger waters than those of her native Chatham. As Mrs. Burns, widtow of the re cently deceased ’Squire Burns, who. passed at the age of 93, has for so many years been confined at home with her afflicted husband, the out ing was most timely, and for her friends’ sake a sketch of its chief features are given below. She and her daughter Mrs. H. E. Norris locked up the old Burns home for the second time in thirty years and set forth with Mr. R. H, Burns for his home in Whiteville, where he is engaged in the practice of law as a partner of Congressman Honer Lyon. It was a delightful October day and the car sped over the good roads to Fayetteville, where Mrs. Burns spent much of her earlier life, and which good city she had not visited in many years. She found many changes, a modern city, but recognized some of the old landmarks. From Fayetteville we passed through one of the finest farming sections of the south, great level fields of cotton, corn, and tobacco, stretching as far as one could see. The peanut fields, with their stacks of harvested vines and nuts, awaiting picking, reminded one of an eskimo village, save in color. The pecan or chards looked like real forests. At Elizabethtown, of Revolutionary fame, we observed the Tory Hole, which is right on the highway. Another point of interest on the way is Page’s lake, teeming with fish, which accommo datingly came to the edge of the water where they could be seen when food was thrown them. Here are three mineral springs of entirely different constituents within a few feet of each other. The lake covers several acres and is to be enlarged, Mr. Page told 1 us. * * • It is only a four hours’ trip from Pittsboro to Whiteville, but we spent' the entire day on the journey, en- 1 joying the scenery and observing the various points of interest. A warm welcome awaited Mrs. Burns at the hand of Mrs. R. H. Bums and the two fine boys Bob and John. The first fishing party was at Lake Waccamaw, twelve miles from White ville. The lake is beautiful and true to its name, meaning in the Indian tongue “peaceful”. The sight of that lovely lake alone was worth the cost of the trip. The broad sheet of water is fringed with lovely cypress trees festooned with the long gray moss of that region. This is one of the beauty spots of North Carolina. The lake is rapidly developing as a resort. Our boatman was the veteran Mr. Pollard who lived many years on the Cr;... oat now, with trim launch, escorts fishing parties on the Lake Waccamaw, where the finny beauties abound, and Mrs. Burns, nearly ninety young, was all athrill as she pulled them in from right and left, while the water gleamed with the silvery sides of the fish school ing upon the surface and the air was brightened by large gay butterflies that wafted their way over the teem ing waters. And hers was the cham pion catch of the party, her nearest rival being her young grandson. •Some of the beauties weighed as much as 1 1-4 pounds. It was her happy day. Back home in time for supper with the best fish one almost tasted, and bounties bestowed upon neighbors. Only a day intervened and we were off with break of day for Little River. It was sixty miles and the road pass ed through visions of golden rod and black-eyed susans, appearing like un to sheets of gold. Little River is over in Horry county, S. C., and is really a six-mile arm of the sea, its water salt. Here the noted Little ’River oysters flourish, and fishermen were drawing in great nets burdened j j with bar re’s of the finny tribes. And i here we go again in a spinning launch, i i this time over the briny deep. The j long lines each held three hooks and ' sometimes each hook had its fish. In landing such a lucky catch Mrs. Burns had to call for help. Spots, whitings, pigfish, and pinfish were in the big catch. When we could count eighty of the beauties, we desisted i and went to a regular sea shore din- ! ner, oysters, shrimp salad and pat- I ties, and fried trout, with corn bread and hot coffee. ‘ And over to the beach eight miles j away. This is the young lady’s first | visit to the ocean, and was perhaps the outstanding feature of her whole trip. She gathered shells and sea weed, walked up and down the beach scanning the restless billows and breakers as if she had not been up since four o’clock that morning. A flock of ducks hurry over, sandpipers were feeding restlessly by the water’s edge. The great orb of day was fast descending. We lingered, almost spell-bound, enchanted, realizing as seldom before the beauty and appro priateness of the scripture, “the Lord is in His holy temple, let all the earth keep silence before him,” as well as that paean of the nineteenth Psalm, which declares that the heavens de clare the glory of God. Sixty-seven miles home, but with good roads, a good car and a care ful driver, with fish packed in ice, che trip was quickly-and safely made and here is Whiteville, only 8:30 p. m. Another trip took us to Fair Bluff on John Charles McNeill’s dear “Lum bee River”, in common parlance the : Election In Chatham p;v. -u-. 'Democrats Carry Chatham % Larger Bfafsrfty Thui UsoaF—Little Interest V*»ry Tittle iht°rest was manifested election in Chatham county Tuesday. The Republicans of the county took even less interest in the election f han did the Democrats. It was a foregone conclusion that the Demo crats would win, and the Republicans simply took it easy, i In Williams township life-long Re publicans are reported as voting the ! Democratic ticket, and that township went Democratic for the first time in manv years. Likewise Hadley and Cape Fear townships, formerly Re loubtioan, went Democratic, while the Republican majority of about 150 in ' ’br'ght was iut down to ten. B&ar Creek also changed to the Democrat ic column. The Vote bv Townships Following are the Democratic and Republican votes for the several pre "mets, the office of surveyor being taken as the criterion: Township Dem. Rep. Albrivht 154 161 Baldwin 252 385 Bear Creek 400 Cape Fear 130 134 Gulf 283 194 Hadley > 166 146 Haw River 102 51 Hickory Mt. 192 88 New Hope 216 137 Matthews 489 415 Oakland 169 76 Williams 118 56 Center 526 69 Total 3197 1978 Democratic majority, 1219. All the Democratic ticket in Cape Fear had a majority except Dard and Moore. Albright gave a majority to sheriff Blair and possibly others. Hence the 5 former Republican town ships are reduced to one and it only in part. The American Legion Auxiliary will meet with Mrs. George Brewer • Thursday afternoon at 3 o’clock, Nov. J 4th. I Mesdames R. H. Hayes and W. P. ' Horton attended a 5 meeting in Raleigh Monday. CELEBRATES. BIRTHDAY WITH LOVELY PARTY Little Miss Mary Brewer enter tained Saturday from 3 to 5 o'clock at a lovely birthday party at her home on “Brewer’s Hill”. The home was effectively decorated with autumn leaves, cats, witches and other Hallowe’en suggestions. The afternoon was enjoyed play ing games and in fortune telling. After these games the guests were invited into the dining room. In the center of the table was the birthday cake, bearing twelve burning candles. The little hostess served her guests delicious Hallowe’en refreshments. She was assisted by her mother, Mrs. Geo. Brewer, and Aunt Mrs. Thomp son of Durham. Lumber River, a corruption of the Indian “Lumbee”, parallel with Pe dee and Santee. And we visit Chad bouin, a sandhill section grown pros perous through the culture of the strawberry, possibly the largest mar ket for berries in the whole country. One of the last two days remain ing of the well filled trip was spent in Wilmington, where Mrs. Burns soent much of the time of the Civil War with relatives, making clothes for the army. This was her first visit since those critical days. A drive over the city and a visit to Seventh street, the scene of her ac tivities in that far off day, was very interesting. Mrs. Burns rendered much service to the soldiers during that great conflict, and is truly a “daughter of the Confederacy.” We crossed the Cape Fear, and where by remarkable co-incidence the old “Thel ma” which was in use during the Civil War, v/as plying the waters red j with Chatham soil. The apiaries on the route from Wilmington to Whiteville were of great interest. Mr. Martin, a former newspaper man of Raleigh, retiring from that service a few years ago, has developed quite an industry and is putting much of his product unon the markets in fancy packages. Only recently he was in Pittsboro with ] j samples of the golden fruitage of the ! j flowers of the Cape Fear section, j whose deliciousness can be attested by ye editor learn from a sample left him by his former comrade# of, the press. Mr. Martin’s methods are absolutely modern. He has 83 plapts in the Cape Fear section, we believe, i and the freedom of" his life and its independence as he resides like an old-time aristocrat in one of the Colonial homes of Brunswick county suggests the possibilities for others along that line in this day when cot ton is overdone and tobacco promises to come into a similar state. And we are going home, back to Pittsboro. We pass through the Gov ernor’s home town, good old Lumber ton, now a thriving young city. Here we are, and R. H. is back home at Whiteville, but has left lasting memo rials of the exceedingly pleasant days that he afforded his mother and sis ter. Mrs. Burns has seemingly a new i lease of life. She will dream dreams of repeating this happy visit and join with Bill in saying: “When the weather’s warm, the day is fine, When the time has come .for hook and line,” You will find me on the way to Whiteville, Columbus county, North Carolina, Merry Oaks Items !**!

Jones and Miss Swanna Jones were joint-hostess in a Hallowe’en party Saturday night at the former’s home. The hall, living and dining rooms 1 were artistically decorated with Hal lowe’en figures, black cats, pumpkins and autumn leaves being used. * Prof. R. L. Forrester, dressed as a ghost with ice cold hands, stood at the end of the walk and welcomed I the guests as they arrived in cos tumes. The witch then commanded them to follow her, taking them into i dark dungeons, then passing thru the hall, over which a huge lighted Jack-o-laritern hung where the hostess, , assisted by Mrs. J. J. Ivey served j witches’ brew. During the evening much fun was pnjoyed in guessing “who’s who”, a 1 so various games and fortune teilirg were engaged in. The prize, which was a ghostly fig ure, filled with candies, went to Miss Eda Purvis, for having best costume. Refreshments consisting of sand wiches, pumpkin pie ginger-bread, persimmon blocks, and black coffee were served. Lovely hand-painted - place cards were used. Black cat I balloons were given as favors. J About fifty friends were present. I Miss Lina Johnson of Siler City, C. ! F. Davis and R. Spainhou of boro, Mr. Craven of Coleridge, Mr. Betenia and Campbell of Fayetteville were among the out-of-town guests. CHATHAM YOUTH HONORED One of Chatham’s young men in the University has lately had a very com plimentary honor bestowed upon him by his classmates. In the Junior class election Wednesday, October 27th, Ed Avent, Jr., a candidate for vicerpresident of the Junior class, received a large majority vote of a bout fifty per iJent over his leading opponent. Mr. Avent is a former student of Pittsboro High School, from which he graduated two years ago with much honor. Since coming to the Univer sity he has made an excellent impres sion on the students all over the cam pus, and stands high in the esteem of all who know him. It is an honor to his community and to all of Chat ham that such a fine young man should have gone out from amongst their number to win these honors in the University. The Chatham Coun ty Club has, also, elected him its president.
