Charlotte News, 24th.
The twenty-third victim of the hor
rible wreck on the Seaboard Air
Line near Hamlet Sunday evening,
died at the Good Samaritan Hospital
ihis morning at 8 o'clock.
The unfortunate one was Rosa
Mcßride, a well known woman of
Hamlet. She was one of the occu
pants of the Jim Crow car which was
smashed to pieces and in which 21
. All day yesterday the life of this
poor unfortunate was hanging by a
brittle thread, and it was expected at
ruy moment that death would relieve
Ler of her sufferings., She sustained
several fractures of the arms and
l(.gs, her right eye was entirely dis
placed and her head and body were
torn and gashed in number of places.
In fact it seems hardly possiole that
she could have survived the awful
catastrophe for any length of time.
The body has been prepared for
burial and will be slipped on the af
ternoon train to relatives in Hamlet.
Of the remaining 41 injured, now
in the Good Samaritan Hospital, Dr.
M. M. Wilder, informs The News this
clternoon that nine will be dis
charged today and will be allowed to
return to their respective homes. i.
Of the 31 that will remain in the
Good Samaritan Hospital three sus
tained injuries that will probably re
sult fatally. Two of these are very
severely wounded and little or no
hope is entertained for their recov-\
cry. Everything possible is being
'•one fer- the comfort and tliesp poor
rnfortunates, and the hospital author
ities as well as the physicians de
s( rve commendation for the great
work in their interests.
The physicians who administered
to the relief of the negroes here
were: Drs. P. M. Winchester,
B. J. Tlios. H. Wright,
C. S. McLaughlin, C. M. Strong ana
H. M. Wilder, the latter the very
efficient surgeon of the Seaboard Air
Every one of these well known
phvsicians did valiant service yester
day and last night and their splen
did work is deserving of special
mention. The Seaboard could not
have possibly gotten together a more
efficient corps of physicians to attend
to their wounded.

The Exciting Experience of Miss Ma

Special to The News.
Wilmington, July 24. —Saturday
night about 10 o'clock while Miss Ma
oel Trotler cf Charlotte and Mr. Jas. S.
Hooper were on their way from Lum

monster sea turtle, and sure enough
just before reaching the Atlantic Club,
he and .Miss Trotter discovered the
"old lady monster" of the deep peace
fully lying up on the beach. She had
just linished laying her eggs and was
placing the sand over them and pack
ing the sand down so as not to be dis
turbed by the rolling surf.
Mr. Hooper left Miss Trotter in
charge while he ran to the club for
assistance. He secured the help of
four men, and with jjoles, they man

her up to the club house, and tied her
to a post.
The next morning a search was
made for the eggs and discovered 128
perfectly round white eggs, about the
size of an average hen egg. This spe

on the beach at night, and they are

Special to The News.
Statesville, July 24. —A highway rob
bery by John Feimster, colored, caus
ed some excitement in the Loray
neighborhood Sunday afternoon.
Mr. Gicero Fulp was on his way
home from Concord church, and was
walking peacefully along the railroad
track when John Feimster met him,
and covering him with a pistol, de
manded that he give up all the money
he had. Mr. Fulp thereupon gave him
all he had, fifteen cents, but the negro
took Mr. Fulp's watch out of his pock
et and the coat he had on and passed
on. Mr. Fulp gave the alram to the
neighbors and with shot guns the sur
rounded Feimster in a swamp nearby
and captured him.
Feimster had caused considerable
uneasiness before he held up Mr. Fulp.
He went to Mr. Fulp's home and fright
ened Mars. Fulp by shooting at chick
ens and dogs. He was drunk and did
no damage to the chickens, but his
drunken condition made him the more
After leaving Mr. Fulp's house he
met some children in the road and
drew his gun on them. They ran. He
had shot out all his amunition and the
pistol was empty when he covered
Mr. Fulp. but Mr. Fulp didn't happen
to know it.
The Feimster negro is a bad man
and dangerous. Some time ago he
went into a fight at. Logan colored
church near Loray, and came out with
his head badly beaten. He was brought
here for treatment and finally recov
ered, though the physicians thought
then there was no hope for him. He
•afterwards got into trouble here and
it is said went to Texas. He had not
been seen in this vicinity for some
time until Sunday.
When arrested he had on his person
a razor, a pistol, a banjo, two knives, a
bottle of whiskey, two small flower
vases and a pin tray, which it is
thought he had stolen from some one's
house. Mr. Fulp recovered his fifteen
cents and knife.
John is in jail here and when court
meets next week he will probably find
a number of charges against him, all
of which will keep him on the roads
or in the penitentiary for some time.
