A rural carriers picnic compos
ed of the carriers and patrons of
routes No. 1, Union Ridge, Wat
son and Corbett, was held at
Baynes store Saturday August
^th. There was a large gather
ing present notwithstanding the
threatening condition of the
weather and the busy time with
the tobacco farmers in that im
mediate section. There were
speeches by Postmaster Waller
and Hon. John R. Hoffman of
Burlington, the speakers were
introduced by that popular ware
houseman, W. L. Thornburg, and
every thing parsed off pleasantly.
Dinner was served about 1 p. m,
the table being filled to over
flowing with the choicest of eat
ables. ^ The reputation of Mr. J.
Zeb. Waller as a lover of corn on
the cob had preceeded him, and
several ladies had a large quan
tity prepared which soon dimin
ished as Zeb tried to maintain his
reputation. TJiere was a bevy
of young ladies present which
added gaiety to the occasion and
made the young men linger long
er than usual, infact Mr, W, J.
Brooks and Mr. D. S, Hall re-
inaiji«d ov^x* night in the neigh
borhood, Mr. Brooks, of course
stayed to talk to the young ladies
and Dan said he just did not have
the heart to leave all those good
rations and was going to stay as
loang as they lasb^. If lie car
ries out this declaration he will
become a citizen of Caswell coun-
ty>, for #>.e whole county is f^iH
of something good to eat, as welJ
as the pr-ettiest girls to be found
any where. Messi^ Dameroii
and Cook was to have been pres
ent to make addi'esses, but'Owi-Dg
to pi'ofessional engagements
could not attend. The crowd w^s
somewhat disaj)pointed in not be
ing able to hear tliese iultured
gentlemen. A string band re&nd-
ered delightful music, and -alto
gether the occasion was one long
to be remembered. Here is hop
ing that those present may live
a thousand years and pull >off a
picnic every year.

New York, Aug, 27. —TheDera-
ocratid United States Senators
have filed their minc^rity report
on wages and the prices of com
modities. While the Democratic
senators did not so intend it, tiie
report is an interesting and vrilu-
able contribution to the fund of
Republican argument in this cam
paign. Admitting that “we are
without sufficient data,” their
conclusion is that the tariff is one
of three chief malefactors, iaiid
then they proceed, of course
“without sufficient data,” to
make the time worn argument^
which long ago was consigned by
the American people to the polit
ical scrap heap, in favor of J'ree

Death of D. Frank Lamb
Our town was greatly shocked
to learn of the terrible accident
which resulted in the death of
Mr, D. Frank Lamb, a contract
or, who was Superintending the
erection of thS new Episcopal
church who fell last Thursday
morning just before noon from
the tour, a distance of sixty feet
and died in about three-quarters
of an hour, from concussion of
the brain, never becoming ' con
scious. Mr. Lamb with Mr. Tom
Shatterly were on the tour when
Mr. Lamb made an attempt to
catch the hook on hoisting line
and became over balanced and
fell amid the pieces of timber
which composed the scaffold to
the earth. Several physicians
were summoned but to no avail
as the gashes on the head show
ed that death could not be avoid
ed. The dauntless character of
Mr. Lamb and high esteem in
which he was held by his fellow
townsmen makes this one of the
sadest deaths which has occurred
in our city for some time, to! say
nothing of his home connection,
bis wife having died two years
ago, and his death leaves four
orphan children, the oldest pf
which is about fifteen, the young
est three. Although parentless
but still not unprovided for as
Mr, Lamb besides being in reas
onable circumstaiices, carried in
surance for the pratection of his
family. Funeral 'services were
conciucted at the home Friday
evening at 4:36 by Rev. J. D.
Wiliiams, burial at Pine Hill
Cenaetery under the auspices of
theJ. O. U. A..M.

The attempt to besmiiHjh Vice-
President Sherman and Sejmtor
Curtis of Kansas in the matter of
the Oklahoma Indmn contracts
died a bomin’. This is the Con
gressional committee’s report;
“The committee has heard and
carefully considered all of the
testimony submitted and is unan
imous in the opinion that ther is
and was no warrant for any per
son to use the names of Vice
President Sherman and Senator
Charles Curtis in connection with
any impro. 3r i’elation with any
Indian contract whatever.”
At the. last minute Senator
Gore, whose testimony at the
opening of the investigation
sought to connect the two states
men with the fraudulent con
tracts, addressed a letter to the
Congressional committee request
ing “that the committee make an
authoritative statement that no
evidence has been presented
tending to establish any improper
conduct on the part of either Vice
President Sherman or Senator
Curtis respecting the subject
of this investigation.
And thus what looks like an at
tempted assasination of charac
