hats into the ring in a bid for the
solicitorship of the twelfth judicial
district against H. L. Koontz, of

appointed to succeed George A.

of early February in which Sheriff
James A. Leonard met his death.

place. McAnnally is a native of
High l'oint, a member of the firtu

four years since his graduation from
the University of North Carolina.

Dr. A. G. Jones
A recent item in the press stated
that Dr. A. G. Jones, of Walnut
Cove, was North Carolina's oldest
practicing physician and was a sur
geon in the Confederate army. The
Item was correct in so far as Dr.
Jones i s the State's oldest practicing
physician, so far as can be found,
but he was not a surgeon in the'
the army. Dr. Jones enlisted in the 1
army at the age if IS years and wus
assigned to Stuart's cavalry, serving
in this capacity throughout the wir
and being In a great many fights. Ho
was shot through the neck in one
battle and 'the surgeon attending him
said that If the ball had gone only
an lota farther It would have rmear.t
death. At another time Dr. Jone«
had his horse shot from under him, |
leaving him afoot for some time. At!
his next birthday Dr. Jone,* will have,
reached the ripe old age of eighty-j
eight. He is still actively engaged
in the practice of medicine, having j
taken up the profession just after,

Walnut Cove, April 18.—Fire

ly destroyed the 10-room residence of
Miss Lucy Burton here. Most of the
furniture down stairs was saved,
that in the upper story being de
stroyed. The residence was occupied
by Alias Burton. Mr. and Mrs. John

unknown but it .was thought to ha*,

the local fire company with ho.se
residences near-by would likely have
burned. All of the furniture in the
home of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Fulton
was removed as his home was locat
ed so near the burning building.
A second lire occurring the past
week in Walnut Cove Tuesday
morning completely destroyed the

in the Rofhrock building was esti.

scene early today, and with Geo.

records were not injured.
The second floor of the Rothroei;
building was used as a Masonic Hall
