Seventh Congressional Dis
trict, is not only a good law
yer and banker, bat he la a
farmer of unquestioned suc

and ploughed from daylight
Iamu cvK, n« omy nr one aay or ror oaeyear, but
from f Is- time he was large enough to handle a hoe
and had vofee enough to aay “Gee and Haw”—from
•thai time until h- attained manhood. That la the
kladpf a man, th'tlsthskind of a farmer, that
w« are offering the people of the Seventh District.
He la a great mua in body, la mind and in heart; a
feUaw who will not fail to answer every call and
every letter written to him, when he reaches Wash
ington as out Congressman. He will devise more
ways and employ more means than can well be im
port to get for his district, aad for every man in
it, everything to which they are entitled.
It will hs worth while to have such a man in
Washington who can practically represent every
element of ear people. He is without frills and
furbelows, and never forgets a friend or an acqua
intance. He received his training in the hard
school of experience; he acqnired nothing from an
cestors but habits of indastrjT and integrity. We
have frequently h ard him say that he “came down
ft* river on a raft,** meaning thereby that in early
boyhood he waa esat out on the stream of life and
left to shift for himself. After the attainment of
manhood, and after receiving that valuable expert
***** that can be acquired nowhere except upon the
tana, he cane to Wadeaboro. Be was enable to
Attend a law school and for this reason undertook
to equip himself snder the tutelage of local mem
bers of the bar. Being entirely without financial re
sources, he shifted from one foot .to the other while
porsuiug legal studies, and for some time thereafter
until he acquired a foothold in the profession. The
plain aad honest demeanor of this piowboy non
drew about 1dm a large cirde of friends, who de
termined to nmka him Major of Waicaboro. After
a spirited contest he secured the nomination and
waa elected four times ia succession aa Major of
Wndcsboro. Twice thereafter he was elected to the
Hoaae of Representatives. Upon the creation of
additional judicial districts in tbe State, Mr. Rob
insoa was appstnted SoHdtor at this district by
Gooerner Charles B. Aycock. He held this position
until 1999, at which time he waa importuned by
stockholders to accept the presidency of the Bank
sf Wadeaboro. He resigned the office of SoHdtor,
accepted the presidency of this bank, aad atoce that
time he has performed the triple duties of banker,
lawyer aad farmer. In the profession of law, Mr.
Batinssn did not forget hh» sarfr training'aad love
for tbs Adds. As soon as his arcumalatioas would
pemait, he acquired a farm and resumed his yosth
fuf callings. It is singular that he Is frequently
