There is a bill pending before congress
a bill to prevent the government from

Mr. West Warren, went out bird
hunting Monday evening, he reported
birds as rather scarce. He shot at two
gazooks, but he said they were so far
off he doubted as to whether he hit
them or not. He says gazooks are
getting scarcer all the time, he seems
to think it due to the cultivation of
the fennel range, gazooks like to feed
on the tall fennel.
It is a current rumor that the in

Katz stock had offered him fifty cts on

Why not make it twenty five, ten, or

company can say what they will pay
on a policy,then leave the whole matter
in their hands. The man who takes out
the policy has the honor of pay ing the

Representative Rainey of Illinois
offered a resolution in the House asking
for the appointment of a committee of
five to investigate the railroad ex

The resolution proposes to give the
committee authority to examine the

The law is a great institution but
has its defects as is demonstrated by
a case now pendii^ in the courts in
this county, in which Will B. I^berts,
is charged with the killing of Jack, a
dog of good character and the property
of Sheiff J. S. MitcheU, of CarroU
oounty, Va. The d^ndant was bound
over to court for, killing a d^ that
afterwfuds prov^ to be very much
alive and the pr'>seci|^qn failed to show
up at court. The stiwnge part of it all
is that Mr. Roberts still stands indicted
and there seems to be no law by
which he can clear himself of a crime
that every one knows he did not
commit.—Mount Airy Leader.
Justice Harlan of the United States
S^upreme Court is quoted a^> predicting
that some day ‘*a real man from the
west” will come to Washington,
narrowly miss being run down by an
automobile, promptly ‘‘pullhis shoot

full of holes.” “And,” adds the Jus
tice, “judge though I am, I believe
the man from the West will get off
There are other communities than
Washington in which the services of
such a man are needed, and where
we are confident, they would be r^
warded with immunity from punish

No Room For Dancing
Girls At State Fair.
If the recommodations of Secretary

There was a Masquerade party pven
at the home of Mr. and Mrs. P. L.
Cooper at Carr December the 27 from
86ven to eleven o’clock P. M. The
rooms of that beautiful home were ar
tistically decorated in the gay colors of
the holidays, red and green. The
young ladies were all tastifally attired
in white linen, while the hostess was
becomingly dress^ in a very light
shaje of blue linen. After enjoying
music rendered by the fair sex in lau
ghter at their comical looking partness,
we repaired to the beautifully arang-

numbered about forty. ^
We wish for that congenial pair a
prosperous and happy new year.
The life of Fred. The 14 year
son of Mr. and Mrs, W. R. Ward, was
in a most pecular and heart breaking
manner, cut short by death on last
Monday Dec. the 26th. 1910. About 7
oclock he and his father and brother
started out hunting, and in about one
hour, through an accident he was shot,
when this news reached the home it
was made a mournful, and heart breaking
home. It was a suddon shock to the
entire community and has cast a gloom
over the many friends and relatives of
the bereaved family This sudde n
shock should be a warning, to those
who are unprepared for death. Be ye
also ready for you know not the hour
when your blessed Lord shall call thee
home. Little did Fred tlunk when on
that beautiful morning he was calling
his dogs and holding the gun ready for
squirrel hunting, that in one hour his
heart would be shot from him. He
was a great hunter, he was neyer to
tired to walk four or five miles oppos-
um hunting, he loved his dogs and any
where he went he wanted them to
fol'ow. He had planed for great sport
rabbit hunting xmas, and had told us
all his plana for every day during the
holidays, he was a great follower of
his father, where ever he went Fred
was most sure to go. He leaves a
father and mother, three brothers and
three sisters. The funeral services
were conducted at Mt Zion church by
Rev. M. M. McFarlan. He was
quitely laid to rest at Mt Zion cemetary
Tuesday Dec. the 27th. about 1 oclock.
May G^ bless his father and mother,
and brothers and sistes and help them
to be ready when the hour of death
comes. Strange we never prize the
music till the sweet voiced bird is
flown. Strange that we should slight
the violets till the lovely flowers are
gone. Strange the summer skies and
sunshine never seemed one half as fair
as when winters snowy pinions shake
the white daWn in the air. Ah those
little ice cold fingers how they point
our memory to the hasty words and
actions, strewn along our backward

us as in snowy grace they lie, not to
scatter thorns, but Roses, for our
