Wagoner was a perfect type of
manly beauty and as brave as a lion.
For the past five years he had been
a terror in that country. Innumer
able murders are laid at his door and
his robberies were most daring. He
was captured about a year ago at
Nacogdoches, Tex., and bronght to
Homer, in Claiborne county, and
and tried on a charge of murder.
The case was not proven against
him and he was sent to the jail here
foa safe keeping to await trial on
other charges against him.
While at Homer an attempt was
made by a mob to kill him bnt sin.
gle handed having in some unac
countable way obtained possession of
a pistol he kept the whole mob at
bay until assistance arrived. Last
night the jail hers was Jbroken into
by a mob of seyenty-five men who
shot him dead in his cell, and then
dispersed. Wagoner has three
brothers in Nacogdoches, and it is
believed that they will maKe an at
tempt to avenge his death. The
desperado had a good many friends
in this section of the country and
may also join in a feud which would
be a bloody one from the outset.
Football at Trinity College.
One ef the important questions to
be decided upon was whether the
students should be allowed to play
football. The faculty laid the mats
ter before the executive committee
of the college, calling attention to
the fact that the rules had been
greatlj improved, eliminating from
the game all brutality, The ex
ecutive committee decided that, un
der certain improved regulations
and management, the game might
be allowed. No match games are to
be played outside the State; only
two days to be taken from their
regular work; none but playeis are
to leave the park to engage in a
game, and a member sf the faculty
must accompany those who go away.
This action is regarded as a com.
promise, which the students cheer
fully accept. Ic is further under
stood as not in any way defying the
conferences, which condemned it
last year, but is to be in effect until
the conferences meet. If the game
has been so modified as to eliminate
all brutality, and if the students
are not allowed to go on tours out
of the State, and if they lose no
time, and when they go, go under
the care of a member of the faculty,
we see no more evil to come of it
than from any other athletic game
which might be expected from col
lege' students. Christian Advocate.
Hlrani Bout Owna a Town.
The pretty little town of Locust
Level, in Stanly county, will prob
ably be swept away some of these
days, and fine crops of wheat and
corn will grow on the streets.
When the town was first started,
the real estate owners went to Mr.
Hiram Bost, a wealthy farmer of
Cabarrus, and mortgaged their prop
erty for enough capital to put up
the improvements. Now the hard
times have come and "old man Hi'
has the nippers on them. When
asked recently what he intended to
do with his town he said he would
"plow it up." The property is
now worth perhaps forty times as
much as he gave for the mortgage

Charles Rector, and boy named
Morris, in exploring a cave near
Seven Mile Ford, Va., three miles
east of this place yesterday discover
ed two skeletons, 40 feet below the
surface. The cave had long been
known, but no one had ever entered
to explore it because of its great
depth. The Morris boy was let
down by a rope. When the find was
reported, a party of citizens went to
the cave to investigate further.
In all ten skeletons were taken
out, and were adjudged to be the
bones ot men. One skeleton was
found in a sitting position with the
skull reclining on the arms, which
were folded across the knees. Thus
far there is but one way to account
for the charnel house. Old citizens
say that many years ago there was an
inn kept near this cave by a man
named Allen and that occasionally
people who stopped there and mys
teriously disappeared were never
again heard of. The supposition is
that they were kilkil iu this inn,
robbed of their valuables aDd then
consigned to the cape. Some of the
skeletons discovered were partially
buried under stones and many of
the bones were broken.
