M. Leasburg, Oct. 9.?Samuel P. Newman, one of Caswell county's oldest and best known citizens died at Memorial hospital, Danville, Va? this morning at t o'clock from a fractured skull which he deceived when he jumped ihto the path of an automobile in front of his hojpe here. Twenty minutes after he was ad mitted to .the hospital, Mr. Newman, who was nearing his 74th birthday, succumbed to a bad fracture of the skull. J. E. McFarland, who operates a filling station near the Newman home and who was an eye-witness to the accident drove the injured man to Yanceyvllle in the same car that struck him and there he was transferred to an ambulance and rushed to the hospital. Guy Tripp, a prominent resident of Washington. N. C., was driving the car that struck Mr. Newman. He stopped and assisted in every way possible, but said that he was too nervous to operate the car further, and Mr. McFarland offered to assist. Got Out of Truck. According to ar. eye-witness view of the accident, Mr. Newman and a Negro boy, Walter Elliott, about 16 years of age, left the store which the former operates in Leasburg in a truck loaded with gravel.

Mr. Newman got out of the truck and picked up a rock with which to scotch the wheel of the truck. He walked in front of the truck start ing for the driveway on the oppo site side of the road when fJDt. Tripp, headed towards Yanceyville, sounded his horn. This seemed to confuse the aged man and he walk ed directly into the right fender of the automobile and was knocked to the tar and gravel pavement.. Mr. Trip, who Is about 60 years old. was cited to appear in Yancey ville this afternoon for preliminary hearing regarding the accident. Mr. Newman was one of Oaswell county's nlost prominent ditlzens. He was born about two miles from Leasburg and for 18 years was con-, nected with the tobacco market in Danville.

Apple vtes critically injured and was rushed to Rainey hospital, Burlington, by - Deputy Sherig Shepherd, but died before ar riving there, it was reported. Officers said that so far as they could learn, Bridges had picked Ap ple up and that the shooting fol lowed a drinking party during which ! an'' "argument developed. Bridges is alleged to have used a German Luger automatic in doing the shooting.' The deputy said he understood Bridges to be from the western part of this state, but was until his ar rest engaged in operating a sawmill east of Greensboro.?Greensboro News.

It was our pleasure to visit this commun 1 ity recently and we were amazed ,at the wonderful progress made the past few years; many beautiful new bungalows line the road on Route 14, and we have never seen such a profusion of beautiful flowers. If you want to see something beyond description make a visit to Mrs. W. R. Morgan and also to Mrs. C. v. Barnwell, and if you have any love I fori the beautiful you will be more I than repaid for your trouble. Mr.s Morgan has about 100 of the most beautiful.dahlias we have ever seen; in fact, we did not think it could be equaled anywhere, but she told us be sure and sy the flower^ garden of her nelce. ,We drove over to the home of Mrs. C. V. Barnwell, and shd has in her garden 65 Varie ties?and she can name every one of them, which beggared descrip tion. We were glad we, were not called upcfc to gay whloh of these gardens would be entitled to rank as first. Any community which takes such an interest In flowers is Just natur : ally bound to be cultured and re fined. for the love of the beautiful is a sfgn which can not be disputed .????? ? More than 1,300,000 bags of wool are to be auctioned in Australia. Averagir For. Everything Gn The Floors Monday Was" Above $35.00 Mark SEASON'S AVERAGE TO DATE IS $30.14 Notwithstanding the heavy break here Monday the market averaged above $35.00 for everything on all of the floors, and the farmers were jubilant over their sales. The total sales Monday were over 150,000 pounds and. as stated above, passed the $35.00 ljigh average. Take the market as a whole and the average for the season has been $30.14?and we have seen no market which has done better for the sea son's- sale. For many years_ this market ted the entire belt, but since the 1932 crop, when it was almost a complete failure, we have been sliding and others have been leading, but unless all signs fail the Rox boro market is coiping into its own and this year will be right up at the front. One reason for the market's low average in repent years has been, the fact that the farmers of this county, many of them, have hauled off their better grades and sold the common on their home market, but we are glad to say this year they are bringing their best grades here, for they are receiving jhe best price on all grades. You will find no better warehouse men, no more active buyers, all pull-, ?ing together for your interest, than you will find right here on your-' home market, jind there is no .bet-_ ter place to sell than on the Rox boro market Bring your next load here and see for yourself?one load will convince. o UUMMUINII Y HOUSE ON AC TIVE LIST AGAIN Plans Are To Rush The Building To Completion The Community House, started : some months since, and then, for various reasons, apparently aban doned, is once more the scene of feverish activity, thus adorning the caps of the PERA and of the Wo mans' Club's efficient leader, Mrs. S. B. Davis, with another feather. For there has been no more inter ested party in the finishing of a community center than Mrs. Davis has been, and it has largely been her efforts in behalf of the com munity house with the cooperation of the PERA and other organiza tions that have brought the plans thus far on their way to completion. The whole town will look forward" to the day of decldatory ceremonies in honor of the completion of this cen ter. FINE C. M. GAINEY FOR ASS A U L T Mr. C. M. Gainey of Durham was tried in Recorder's Court here yes terday before Judge W. I. Newton for trying' to run down his wife with an automobile.
