The Martin County Teachers'
Institute closed last Friday after
noon. The attendance was
splendid and though the weather
was extremely warm, the atten
tion of those who entered was
marked. There were about forty
two' enrolled before the term end
ed. Prof. Bachman, who con
ducted the school, gave thorough
instruction in those things nec
essary to the training of a
teacher. Miss Sue Fulghum, who
instructed in the primary grades,
was forced to leave after several
days, having been called to Balti
more to the bedside of her
mother, who is very ill in Johns
Hopkins Hospital. But for this
unfortunate circumstance, the
Institute would have been second
to none in the State in its value
to the teachers. Miss Fulghum
is one of the most successful
teachers in primary work in
North Carolina, and her work in
the Institute complete in
Prof. R. J. Peel tendered the
teachers and the young people of
the town a reception at the Lotus
Club on last Wednesday evening,
which was very enjoyable. A
pleasing programme was render
ed and refreshments were served
before the close of the hours.
Prof. J. JD. Harris, of the
Rocky Mount schools, was here
several days and his work proved
helpful to the Institute. Those
in attendance took an examina

Breaks His Ankle
The county at large will regret
very much to learn that Judge
Francis D. Winston broke his left
ankle last Wednesday night. It
occurred at his home about 8:30
o'clock. He was coming down
the stair-steps and when on the
fifth step from the bottom his
heelcaught and he fell practically
the full length of himseif, break
ing one bone and deslocating
another in his left ankle. For a
man his size and weight it is sur
prising that he did not injure
himself more, and in this his
friends throughout state will re
joice, regreting that the accident
is as bad as it is. The doctor
was immediatly called and dress
ed the wound and remained with
him the night through, and he is
now doing as well as could be ex
pected and resting as comfortably
as possible considering the ex
treme warm weather and his
large phipique. It is hoped he
will be able to be up about the
house in two weeks.
This is the second time he fias
hurt this same leg. Some years
ago he broke a sinew and was
forced to use an elastic band and
suffered from it for several
weeks. Windsor Ledger.
Organiser Rfcmseur Here
On Tuesday night of last week,
Hubert Ramseur, Orgairfzing
Sec'y of the N. C. Just Freight
Rate Association, met a few in
terested citizens at the City Hall
and formed an organization
for Martin County.
Owing to local conditions, only
a small number of the business
men were present, but the inter
est here in the movement is
strong as freight discrimination
has been going on for years at
this place. After a short talk by
Mr. Ramseur, who carefully ex
plained the objects of the meet
ing, the following were' elected
as officers of the Martin County
Association: Geo. W. Blount,
President; P. F. Apfel, Vice-
President; JohnL. Haßsell, Sec'y.

A Delightful Occasion
On July 3rd., Mrs. Wheeler
Martin, Jr., was hostess in honor
of her sister, Miss Helen* Poteat
and Mi's. Francis Hassell. The
handsome residence was decorat
ed with the National colors—Old
Glory waved in the Southern
breeze, showing forth the patrio
tism in the heart of the home.
On the arrival of the guests, a
ticket was given to each and Jthe
one holding the corresponding
number was the partner. Then
books were distributed and the
guests took an imaginary trip,
making en route a tourist's book.
From magazines furnished, the
guests selected their route, ire
sorts, hotels, menus, etc. When
these were finished; they were
attractive souvenirs. After the
booklets were completed, the
guests were invited out on the
verandah, where iced tea with
salad was served. The second
course was delicious ice cream and
cake completing a most refreshing
menu. Later the guests depart
ed with the thought that the oc
casion was one of the most de
lightful during the season.

Thursday that the death of Mr.
Jack Brown had occured at St.
Vicent's Hospital early that morn
ing Mr. Brown was desperately

on Main Street, Tuesday after
noon. The honor guests were,
the Misses Bethea; of Florence, S.
C., Mrs. Alonzo Hassell, Mrs. C.
B. Clark, of Durham; Mrs. J. P.

vited the guests in the dining
room where salads, tea, pickles,
saltines, sherbet and cake were
served. To each was given as a
souvenir of the occasion, a unique
powder book especially suited for
travel in the summer. These
were attvactivily made and their

300 Gallons in a Month
Referring to the recent capture
of blind citizens who live in Will
iamston and get their booze at
Spe''ers Ferry, The Windsor
Ledger comments on the number
of gallons thus:
"It is said this has been going
on for some various men
in Martin county having liquor
shipped to Speller's Ferry, in
Bertie county. And tjiat the
i books of the agent show that
over three hundred gallons of
liquor have been shipped or re
ceived there in the last month.
; This is the biggest haul yet made
in this or the nearby counties,
and will no doubt put a quietus
to the ilicit traffic, for a while at
least, if not altogether, certainly
to using Bertie landings as a
subtefuge and creating the im
pression that the business is car
ried on this county." j '

USE OF CALOMEL
Dangerous Drug Giving Way for
Safer, More Reliable Remedy
Hundreds of people in this
vicinty alone have stopped the
use of dangerous calomel when
their liver is acting slowly, and
take Dodson's Liver Tone instead.
Dodson's Liver Tone is always
safe and has none of the bad
after-effects which so often follow
the use of calomel. It is a plea
sant-tasting vegetable liquid that
starts the liver gently and surely,
and relives constipation an bili
ousness and causes no restriction
of habit or diet.
Many preparations have sprung
up that imitate the claims made
for Dodson's but re
member Dodsoe's Liver Tone is
the tried and tested remedy that
has proven such a good medicine
and is so satisfactory to every
user—is the reason these imita
tions are on the market.
Dodson's Liver Tone cannot
hurt anyone and if it fails to do
all that is claimed for it Saunders
& Fowden who sells it, will give
your money back with a smile.
