The Minstrel Show TKfc amateurish minstelsy turned off at the City Theater by local talent on Tuesday night gave even the grcucher the grins not the "dry grins" but brought forth the old-fashioned "horse laugh". The management was under Harry M. Stubby, ably assisted by H. A. Biggs aud Miss Lettie Critcher as pianist. The jokes brought out by the interlocution of Harry Biggs, bad a freshness and the local hits made fun tor the appreciative audi ence, "Pete" Fowden as left-end man was the jolliest, laziest nigger that ever went "down the pike". As a close second on the right was ''Handsome Harry", the Caruso of tbe University Glee Club. Bill Harrell, clothed and "shoed" as only a sporty darkey can be, wept occasjonly.

The funeral services were conducted by Rev. G. J' Dowell and tbe fce»r ment was in the Baptist Cemetery. s[.oo a Year in Advance Robinson for Sheriff The time is now at band when the Democrats of Martin County will meet in Williamston and in convention assemble to name a man - that will be our next sheriff. Allow me space in your paper, Mr. Editor, to ask the Democrats of Martin County to support Mr. Harmon T. Robinson, for our next sheriff of Martin County. Why I ask the people to support him is he is thor oughly competent in every respect to make Martin County a sheriff she will be proud ot. To nominate Mr. Robinson for sheriff will place the morals of our Politics on a higher level. We have learned bv experience the last few years that the long term of office ba« brought the mora's in Politics very low. In pkisk under date of July 19th, I see these words: "It is said that at each man's birth there is a fairy god who stands sponsor at his christening and if this bo so the god of Detectives stood spono-r at Sheriff Crawford's birih." I want to tell the people of Mar tin County that Mr. Robinson is a young man l orn tinker the new covenant, believes not in fairy gods but belitves in the one God the true and living God of all the uni verse and that all men are boru equal before him. The same writer said "that every mat) in America could not be pies.dent" but he fail ed to siy our platform as drafted in Baltimore that no man should be eligible 'o a secouu term and also say? that every mun in North Caro lina canoot be governor. He will plca;e remember that the Statute Law of North Carolina forbids a man succeeding himself as Gover nor. Our tadieis waen they wrote the Constitution of this State for* bade over one tetm for the Cbiel Magistrate Now let us get back borne in Martin C.unty and con si ier tbe many inhabitants of our old County. Are we going to give one nfan a fat j>b al! lis life and then to hi? sons. If tuch be the cate there is 110 u>e in having a convention and elections. I say no we people of Martin County are prog:e;sive people we do not put ourselves below the representative Democrats or the nation who have declared against -long terms of {office. We believe in a represent ative government and that all men should have an equal chance. We don't believe that ooe man is horn ed of Go;l to be a farmer and another a merchant and another a criminal Such an argument is a travesty against gooJ government. Let us awake and ame to progres sive sentiments and nominate Mr. Robinson for she: iff and at our next county convention pass .1 re solution that no man shall serve more thau two terms in succession for any office in ftiv ifouutj-. — 4 ~ Yours truly- Jas A. Daniel. Work Begun Mr. W. H. Souiuieis:, who is in charge of tne headiug inili, arrived last week with several tr.en. The machinery tor tniil was brought over the Atlantic Coast Line. Sup-- erintendeat Sotnmers and his men erected tents on the mill site, which had been purchased from Marshal Wilson for $1,200 includes 30 acres. The heading mill will oc cupy only three of this, however. Every preparation has been made 4 to hasten the work and the Coast Line will soon begin tbe erection of •the track to the river front. The committee in charge of the arrange ments which the to wn was to make have been unselfish in their support of the movement .'or the good of the town. The material for the Pants Fac tory has been hauled as rapidly as possible and work 011 it has already begun. It will be ready for opera tion by September 15th. as the con tract stated.
