HOUSE ROBBED IN NO. 3.
Store Than Ouc S llniidred Pennies
Taken at One Haul.
The house of Mr. Jim Brown, who
lives in No. 3 township, was entered
and robbed some time last Tuesday
by one, Eapey Poteete, a neighbor to
Poteete got quite a nice haul of
pennies, having found more than a
hundred, besides several pieces of
It is eaid that Poteete had, some
time ago, stolen a pistol from Mr.
Milas Beaver, of the same Fection,
and pawned it to Mr. Brown, but
when Poteete was rumaging through
the house of Mr. Brown he reclaimed
the pistol with the "brownies'
Mr. Brainard Smith wa3 deputized
to fetch Poteete to town, and had
gotten within a mile or two of the
city, when the criminal leaped from
the vehicle and took leg bail for
sweet liberty. He was, the last

Our neighbor on the north, the
Salisbury Herald, takes us to task
about saymg the Standard was the
Qrst paper in the State to publish
the account of the Lexington shoot,
ing scrape. The Herald had a tele
graphic report and several other
papers bad some news of it. We
should have said our paper got
around before any other. It was in
the hands of our local patronage
(few borrowers excepted) long before
sundown. And our neighbor stated
that it was late and it was the only
one having a full, correct account,
so we naturally concluded hat the
Standard was first to the breeze.

Avery Butler, the young white
convict who some time ago waylaid
and assassinated his father at Clin
ton, Sampson county, and was sent
to the penitentiary for life, is again
at large. Not many months ago he
escaped, but committed a crime in
Catawba county, was arrested there
and returned here. Is appears that
he got away yesterday for the second
time. In some way he got possession
of a suit of citizen's clothing, put it
on and deceived the guard, so that
the latter went away, having been
told by Butler, whom he did not
know, that one of the officials want
ed to see him. Butler dropped a key
to two convicts below who were in
the plot with him and with this key
they opened the door and all three
got away. The other two convicts
were 30 year men. The search for
them ull began promptly. Butler,
who ig about 21, is a very hardened
criminal. Raleigh Letttr.

Road to Succes
H mm mini Exastemce
Is. after all, very like a torturous ioimty
roal, with slopes to climb and valleys to
leisurely travel, with here green fields of
plenty to enjoy, and there marsh lands of
temptation and dancer to avoid, and with
crossroads and "four corners" every now
and then to confuse and possibly to mislead
the traveler. Some of us fail to climb the
hills, some fall asleep in the valleys, and still
others wander off and are lost in the marsh's
morasses; but to the great majority of
mankind the crossroads are the oniy really
difficult points to be passed.
"What studies will I take?" asks the
" What trade or professi on will I follow?"
says the yoath.
' How can I best win success?" says the
man. These are
We all encounter, and these are the places
where most of us ffo astray. Blessed is the
man who chooses the proper path at these
various junctions. " Luck " may have been
his gu:J?, and his less fortunate neighbors
are prone to say so, but investigation and
! experience teach that the only reliable helps
at these difficult points are knowledge and
i work. Knowledge is a burden to no one. -.
Like the air you breathe, your knowledge
proves its existence not by apparent weight
1 end cH'-t. but by its effect. How often have
you found the information you acquired by
casual observation or study to be of great
specific advantage in a crisis whose
possibility you had not dreamed of when you
acquired that knowledge.
Then, it knowledge is to be your gide

Is it not worth your while to secure the
greatest, the bst source of human knowledge
extant, when hat source is, by American
en'.erpr's placed within your reach? In the
Br.cycIup.-rtlKn Britannica the child will
find m.ut. r to interest hi little mind, and
give him fo-i for thought along the line of

stories and professional and mechanical
information to enable h I in to wisely choose
his life work, and the adult will have his

advantage of opportunities that he otherwise
would not see. Thus it is a guiitboard for
