We are glad to state that this needj will soon be filled. A company | has been organized and nearly all the money subscribed for the erection of a large and well ar ranged hotel that would be a credit to towns three times the size of Smithfield. The building is to be located on the corner lot north of the court house and will front 10") feet on Market street and extend 00 feet on Second street. The building is to be of brick, three stories high. It will contain two store rooms, barber shop, office, sample room, par lors, kitchen and dining room and about 25 bed rooms. The men who are backing up this en terprise mean business and the building will be put up as soon as possible. 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 one year for f.'i.OO, cash in ad vance. The Raleigh Times is one of the very best afternoon dailies in the State and is edited by Mr. John Wilber Jenkins, one of the brightest newspapermen in North Carolina. This is a great offer, as the price of The Times alone is $.'5.00 per year. Those of our subscribers living at Clayton and Wilson's Mills. Selma, Pine I^evel and Princeton would do well to take advantage 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 for one whole ytar. 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 nary cigar. The parents aie respected citizens, living in the suburbs.?Raleigh Times. 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." BF.NSON BUDGET. A liberal use of paint helps the looks of town. l'reston Johnson is in Rich-, mond for a few weeks. Charles Johnson is recreating in upper Harnett this week. Hudson Tobacco Warehouse is j Hearing completion, and there is talk of another. Never but once was town poli-l tics as dull as now, on approach of election, and then it went by default. The new bank here has been in i operation a short while, and the J people find it is what they have j needed a long time. The firm of R. F. Smith & Co. have dissolved copartnership Dy mutual consent, and Ulysses i Wallace has accepted a position with Mr. Smith who continues the business. Our tow n is experiencing the disorders of a small pox scare. Exaggerated reports sent broad-1 cast over the county have had the effect of demoralizing busi ness some. There are and have; been seven or eight cases, all of j whom are doing well. There has j been no death. The sickest man we haye had is one who took j erysipelas in his arm from vacci nation. The physicians and au thorities think they have the, matter well in hand now, and' that there will be no new cases.
