The association, this year, is at
tempting to build up a keen compe
titive spirit among the farmers,
poultry raisers, swine breeders and
others of this and the adjoining
counties, the management believing
that the results will be more bene
ficial and more marked within them
Recent reports from several of
the larger .fairs in _and
Pennsylvania state that the W. T.
Stone Exhibition shows, booked for
the fair here, are meeting with much
success. The Cumberland, (Md.) Daily
"Playing their first engagement at
the Cumberland Fair the W. T. Stone
Exposition Shows are holding sway
on the midway with fourteen high
class shows and Bix of the latest and
most thrilling riding devices, several
of which have never made their debut
before at this fair.
"The concessions as noted are all
clean and present well-filled booths
of high class merchandise of every
variety. Fair patrons were patroniz
ing these booths and' in turn the
showmen were giving out their
prizea in abundance.
"On the midway the fourteen
shows were offering their presenta
tions to well-filled tents, principal
among these noted were: The House
of Wonders, a mystic and illusion
show offering a talented company of
stage starts presenting some of the
highest class acts that have never
been seen before only in the big time
legitimate houses. Stone's Old Plan
tation Days, with a cast of thirty all
colored singers, dancers and comed
ians that put pep aplenty in their
jwerk; The All-Native Hawaiian Re
vue, presenting entertainers from the
far off Pacific in a setting of splen
dotorial beauty. The Congress of
Fat Folks, The Law and Outlaw,
Trained Animal Show, Zenobia and
others helped to make up an attrac
tive array of outdoor amusements
that the public of Cumberland can
well afford to view while at the Pair
this week. The shows are all clean
and refined and their offerings ap
peal to both old and young.
"Gracing the midway the entire
way is found the garden of rides,
one of the most collossal collections
of riding devices traveling under one
banner that haa ever played this ex
position. Among them are: The Ferris
Wheel, the Pony Circus, The Dang
ler, Whip, Caroussell and the Tilt
a Whirl, the latest innovation of rid
ing device manufacturers.
Managers W. T. Stone and J. H.
Marks were seemingly everywhere
last night as they attended to last
minute details in their efforts to give
the Cumberland fair the finest mid
way in its history."

Three New York women and six
Gastonia men were released from

Says Conditions in Almost
All N. C. Jails Are
"With two unusually dark excep
tors, conditions in twenty-four of your
State's jails are far above the average
ruling," Mr. W. S. Van Rensselaer,
Federal prison inspector, stated yestei
day afternoon following an inspection
of Martin County's jail here. The jails
at Kinston and Whiteville were pointed
jout to be the two exceptions, while the
| jail at Beaufort was said to be one of
I tilt best he had visited. According to
the inspector, conditions in the Kinston
jail warranted the removal of "Federal
prisoners to other quarters.
Mr. Van Rensselaer, working out of
New York, only inspects the jails where
Federal prisoners are held, While the
Department of Justice man was in

carefully avoided mentioning the con

gallon capacity steam still in u
swamp along Chowan river in Hert

Steam was furnished by a six-horse

The officers, paddling quietly .down
the river, heard the distillers as they
turned the steam to the beer, one .f
the deputies stating that the place
was so well camouflaged that sound
was about the only way the plant
could have been found. Taking their
boat ashore, the officers walked the
improvised tramway to a platform
back in the swamp, where the still
operators were hard at work. Two of
the men jumped into the water and
mire and made their escape, . while

Lawsuit Over Hen's Death
Last June Antoine Duminy was
driving his automobile through a sub
urb of Toulouse when a hen belong
ing to Jules Peasant, a local horse
shoer, became confused at the head
lights of the car, flew at them, broke
one, and then died under the wheels.
M. Peasant demanded 50 francs, or
$2.04, as compensation. The motorist
refused to pay on the ground that
the hen had smashed his headlight.
The two drove to a garage where the
headlight was repaired for 52 francs,
or |2.12. Thereupon M. Duminy call
ed upon the horse-shoer to pay him
the difference between the value of
the hen and the cost of repairs,
which was 2 francs.
The horse-shoer again declined and
was sued for the 2 francs. When the
case Ant came up M. Peasant lodged
a counter claim for 160 franca, or $6,
on the ground that the alain bird
was a sitting hen and that the eggs
which would have been hatched were
worth the amount claimed, minus the
2 francs. Thereupon M. Duminy in
stituted a supplementary suit claim
ing damages of 260 francs, or (10.20,
the coat of a new glass to his lamp
and the danger incurred ty using the
repaired one.—New York Times.

First Game of Season;
Reserves in Action
Playing Farmville here last Friday
afternoon in a first game of the
season, Coach Hood's football squad
registered a 33 to 0 victory over the
visitors, featuring the win with long
end runs and passes and offering a
defense that turned the Pitt County
lads back with out a first down. With
a hot summer sun over their hea.ls
and the fans, dressed in regular
summer garb, cheering them on,
the boys forgot the heat ami started
to work to make the first score two
. minutes after the starting whistle.
Although the visitors offered ro
I s throng opposition, they tackled hard
jwrcheck the locals' onslaught. Time
i and again the Farmville lads would
hit YVilliamston's line, but, standing'
as a brick wall, the lcoals-would turn i
them back. Two penalties gave the
visitors their only gain. Both teams
kicked effectively, the locals slightly l
leading in that feature of the play.
Williamston, receiving the ball for
the first play, carrrited the oval in
the visitors' territory, Saundes catch
ing a well-planned pass from Shearon
to carry the ball over for the first
score. Receiving the ball on the next
kickoff, Farmville failed to gain in
two attempts and kicked. In two
runs the locals carried the ball to
their opponents' 18-yard line, Holding

penalty was imposed and the run
was not recorded. Again on the 18-
yard line, Shearon aimed a pass to
Saunders for a second touchdown.
The extra point was made, bringing
the score to "13 to 0.
The locals kicked to the Farmville
eleven. A pass was attempted, and
upon their failure to complete it, the
visitors kicked to the locals. Forty
yards were lost as quickly as they
were gained when ft 16-yard penalty
was imposed and signals failed to
carry in a play a few minutes later.
From mid-field, Shearon maije his
way around end to score a third
touchdown. The extra point failed.
Receiving the kickoff again, F'arm
ville failed to gain and kicked out
of danger. At the half the locals
were oh the visitors' five-yard line.
Coach Hood.'used a number of his
subs during the last few minutes of
the half, 1 ' '
Receiving the ball when the play
was renewed, the locals made first
downs at random. A pass to Saun
ders placed the ball in line for an
other score, bucking the
line for the fourth touchdown. The
extra point brought the score to 26
to 0. Farmville received and failing
to gain through the line attempted a
pass that was intercepted by Shearon.
Farmville recovered the ball on a
fumble in the next play, but after
trying to gain through the line, a
kick was ordered. In the last quarter,
the locals carried the ball the length
of the field for a fifth touchdown,
the extra point bringing the total
score to 33 to 0.
Charged with holding, the locals
lost a possible score _ whjn Saunders
handled a lateral from Holding
and crossed the lin£ with it. Oscar

man wil find a 4 per cent penalty added
