John Swaim, of Pleasant Garden
who was waylaid on the Alamanci
road several miles southeast oi
Greensboro last Wednesday night
died Saturday night in St. Leo's Hos

in soon after his arrival at the hospital
and death was expected lor several

when the shot was fired. In fact Mr.
Plunket said something about the con

who made a mumbled reply, their ac

and Swaim cried out that he had beqn

then occurred, Mr. Swaim leaping
freat the buggy to the ground. The ne

to assist the other, who had his pistol
in his hand. The two negroes shoved

guilt to Walker by any special

Walker aptly, however, and the police
will hold the negro.
There is a peculiar chain of evi

that Walker is one of the men wanted.
They are now almost convinced that
Jess Dorsett, the other suspect under
arrest, knew nothing of the murderous
assault, and while he is held in con

warrant, his known intimacy. With
Walker is nossibly the strongest rea
son for belief in his participation
in the shooting. A notebook of Wal

of suspicion of Walker, and it was
upon the strength of this evidence
that he was arrested.

"ADVANTAGE OF READING"
(By H. C. Parks.)
We are living in a strenuous age.
We are getting too busy to read as
much as we should. The advantages
to us, derived from reading good lit
erature are numerous, ami inestima
ble. You w ill notice that I said "good
literature," in this day of rapid mul
tiplicity of books and papers and other
uling matter, one of the hardest
things for us to determine, is, what
to read. It was not so in the days
of our forefathers. They counted
themselves lucky if they would get
hold of u single copy of some book,
and having obtained it, they greedi
ly devoured every page. They get
ting one advantage from it, that we
usually fail to obtain today, for the
people of today merely skin over the
pages of the books they read, and
therefore, retain only a little of what ,
It is not the number of books we
read, but the good thoughts and in
fluence we derive from them, that
really benfit us.? Some one has said
"no book has ever been written in
which there was not a single thought
worth our while to read it for,'" but
notwithstanding their assertion, which
I seriously doubt, it is necessary for
us to take great pains in selecting
what we are to read.

How like the rudeness of their dear
With rich ore in th?ir bosoms and

profanity has joined the silent ma
lty and is resting in the tomb with
all the other dead languages.
Not so long ago many men, good
men, decent men thousrht nothinc of
hearing a few cuss words now and
then. That is, if they thought much
of the incident they said nothing.
But in the last few years men, es
pecially business men, have come to
the realization that swearing is de
cidedly out of place at any place.
No one likes to hear anyone use
profanity. It goes against the grain
of most men and women shrink from
it as they would from a snake or some

but made no difference to the "big

Many men think they cculd r.ot get
along without the use cf profane lan
guage. They could. Profanity is
merely a useless waste of words. Cut
out the waste, you men .who Ev.car!
