that prevails in the North west, the
June bank clearings here showed an
increase of $10,202,790.00 over June,

ers and railroads are preparing for
bumper crops which have already be
gun to show their effect. Whole
salers report business better in every
way and the best indication of all is
that collections are easy.
Railroads can't carry economy to
the point of letting their plants cleter

ONE OF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL
IN THE HISTORY OF THE
COUNTY ABLE CONDUCTORS
WERE IN CHARGE.
After having been in session for
two weeks, one of the most successful
institutes that has ever been held in
Asheboro, closed last Friday after
noon. During the first week there was
only one session each day, in order
that the teachers might attend the
Chautauqua in the afternoon. During
the last week there were two sessions
a day. In the morning the two con
ductors held a general session, both
working with the teachers; in the aft
ernoon Miss Royster took charge of
those who do primary work and dem
onstrated to them the best methods
of teaching, while Mr. Woosley did
similiar work with the grammar grade
teachers. All declare it to have been
one of the most interesting and help
ful institutes they have ever attended.
Mr. Woosley is an experienced insti
tute conductor as well as teacher, and
knows how to help other teachers. His
services as conductor are in demand
all over the State. From here he went
to Lexington, where he will conduct
the Davidson County Institute. His
assistant, Miss Sallie Rcyster, of
Wilson, did her part well also. She
is an excellent primary teacher and
gave some very helpful suggestions to
the primary teachers who attended.
There were about one hundred and
forty of Randolph's teachers enrolled,
several of whom were young men.
The real work of the Institute closed
Thursday at noon, when all those who
had been there every day got a certi
ficate of attendance. Thursday after
noon and Friday the county examina
tion was taken by a large number.
The names of the succesful ones will
be published in The Courier later.
MACK LEWALLEN DIES
Former Randolph Man Dies in High
Point Death Was Due to Heart
Mr. Mack Lewallen died at his
home on South Main street in High
Point last Monday about noon and
was buried at Springfield the next
day. He had been working in his
truck patch all the morning and sat
down to dinner but complained of a
severe pain in his breast and that he
was so warm, he went into the kitchen
and bathed his hands, and returning
to his couch, died in a few minutes
from-heart trouble. He had suffered
from heart trouble for several years.
Mr. Lewallen was a man cf con
siderable means, a highly respected
citizen and a very useful man in his
community. He had been living in
High Point for about 14 years. Im
mediately prior to his going to High

The Democrats in Randolph coun
tv should work together and try to
keep peace in the political family
along all lines. They should agree on
candidates for the various county of
fices. No man should be voted or in
a primary if there is much objection
to him on the part of many people.
Men should be nominated for whom
all Democrats could vote.
When the people can actually be
made to understand that it costs more
in time and money to travel over a

He says that he has been teaching
the little girl music for three years
and has become very much attached
to her. A few months ago, he says,
the child's father lost all he had and
moved to a small station called Manor,
somewhere on tne new railroad that
runs through Harnett, and that since
going there he has not been treating
Nettie right. He says that it was
for the purpose of rescuing her from
the life that she led there that he
carried her away from Spring Hill
church in Harnett county on July otii.
He relates a number on instances to
shrw that the story of the life she had
to lead is correct.
The little girl bears him out in his
story. She says that he is telling th
truth and that she has no desire to
go home. She also says that he treats
her well. She is a slender little girl
and savs she is 12 years old and siu
