contain two store rooms, barber
shop, office, sample room, par

The Cow and Calf not Related.
A certain man in or about Gar- j
ner, N. C., decided recently that j
his table fare would be a little
more complete with some milk |
and butter. So he spoke to a
Johnston county cattle dealer to
secure for him a cow and calf.
Not many days passed before the
cow and calf were delivered and i
paid for, much to the satisfaction
at first, of both parties concerned.
Soon the purchaser noticed that
the cow and calf seemed to be
"without natural affection" but
he thought perhaps the drive had
jaded them and that soon they
would become more attentive to
each other. However this sad
state of affairs continued until it
was thought proper to investi
gate the matter. The investiga
tion showed that the cow and
calf were really no blood kin and
that the original owners of the
cattle lived several miles apart.
Do You Want an Afternoon Daily?
We have made arrangements
with the Raleigh Times whereby
we can send The Smitheield
Herald and The Times, both

Carolina. This is a great offer,
as the price of The Times alone

Those of our subscribers living

of this offer, as they can get The
Times the same day of publica
tion, being mailed in time for the
last train which leaves Raleigh
each dav. Remember that for
three dollars you can get your
county paper and a good daily j

The Smallest Baby Yet.
The smallest babv in the world,:
according to all medical records,
was born in this city last Satur
day. The mother gave birth to
twins and one weighs four pounds
while the other weighs only 14*,
ounces. Photographer Haves
this morning took the baby's
picture. It is i>erfectly formed
and seems to be entirely well.
However the physicians say that;
it will be very difficult to raise
such a child.* The little young
ster is about the size of an ordi

Concerning: Starling: Wilson's Death.
In our issue of March 2!>, there
appeared a statement in our
Selnia correspondence concerning
the death of Mr. Starling Wilson
which somewhat offended the
friends and relat ives of the family
of the deceased. 4s we are un
willing to do anyone an injustice
we publish the following version
furnished us by the family with
a request that it be published:
"He (Mr. Wilson) in searching
the Scripture read the fifth chap
ter of James and became con
vinced that the God who made
him was able to heal him. and
that he would, provided he would
exercise faith to that extent. So
he sent for the pastor of his
church and other christians to
come to his home and conduct
an anointing service, as is plainly
taught in James 5. The service
was set for Sunday, March 24, at
2 p. m., and at 11 o'clock the
same morning he told his son
that he need not get for him any
more medicine, that he would let
him know when he wanted any
more. So the christians met at
2 o'clock and conducted the ser
vice. He then claimed that the
pain in his side was removed for
the first time since he had been
sick. So he, much to the ap
proval of the christians, who
were conducting the service, de
cided to take no more medicine,
that God did not need medicine
to heal him with. So the next
dav he took more medicine to
satisfy the request of his boys
and at once began to grow worse,
death soon presente 1 itself, and
just before he died he roused up
and told a good woman, one of
the family, that the doctor told
him that he could relieve him of
the pain in his side, but he had
not done it."
