General Young, commanding his own
brigade, two regiments of the Third
Pennsylvania, two squadrons of Penn
sylvania artillery and one battalion
signal troop, was given the problem
of warding off much larger forces, in
cluding field artillery, and getting
away with wagon trains which he was
supposed to have captured containing
large amounts of money.
General Young's force numbered
slightly more than five thousand and
the opening force commanded by Gen
eral Logan of the Second Pennsylvania
brigade, numbered about eight thou
sand. General Logan's cavalry out
numbered General Young's two to one
and included the eight regiments of
regulars. The wagon trains, both from
the North Carolina brigade, were
never in danger.
Colonel Gardner, with the First
Regiment, formed the advance guard.
Colonel Rodman followed and the fast
cavalry of the enemy could not find
a single gap In the line they main
tained. Skirmishing parties were thrown
back repeatedly. It remained, how
ever, for Colonel Minor and his regi
ment, the Third, to capture the
enemy's entire cavalry outfit. By a
piece of the finest strategy he con
cealed his regiment in the mesquite
and the regulars, checked in a spirit
ed charge, were agape with astonishment

A very serious effort is being made
to protect the men of this brigade
from the open saloon. It should not
be understood that the soldiers of this
command are going to the dogs or
that there is more drinking among
them than among other troops, for
this is not true. There is some drink
ing, however, and "some drinking" is
a novel sight among North Carolin
ians. The officers, always having at
heart the best Interests of their men
are taking much thought about the
matter and are trying to devise ways
and means of cutting down consump
tion of liquors and keeping old John
Barleycorn out of this camp.
Lieut. Col. Claude L. McGhee. of
the Third Regiment, Franklinton. who
was provost marshall at Camp Glenn
and kept the lid clamped down so
tight there that the drought was un
broken for three long months, ha3
been charged with the responsibility
of taking care of the boys of the
Third and he has called the company
commanders Into conference on the
question. He takes the position that
any drinking at all Is bad. He does
not think that our boys are going to
the bad because of the open saloons
that are maintained on every corner
In El Paao.

PRACTICALLY OFFICIAL RE
TURNS FROM NEARLY EVERY
AMENDMENTS ALL CARRY
Both Weaver, Democrat, and Brltt,
Republican, Claiming Election In
The Tenth District
Raleigh. Having heard definitely
from the vote in nearly all of the
state the estimated plurality has
been amended and it Is practically
sure that the Democrats will lead In
North Carolina by over 50,000. Eighty
two counties heard from give the
Democratic Candidate In Tenth Dis
trict. Both Mr. Weaver and J. J.
Brittt, Republican, are claiming the
Election in this Districts
Democrats p plurality of 49,211.
Twelve counties in the lot went Re
publican, and seventy Democratic.
Although the vote for the constitu
tional amendments was exceedingly
and disappointingly light to their ad
herents, nevertheless the apparent
absence of determined effort to defeat
the amendments gives hope that they
have carried. Mr. W. S. Wilson, who
has actively championed the four
continues optimistic. The fact that
only one county thus far has reported
defeat of the amendments leads him
to believe that although the vote will
be inconsequential compared to the
Democratic vote, yet it will be suffi
cient. Both Congressman Britt, Republican,
and State Senator Zeb Weaver, his
Democraitic opponent, continued to
claim election to Congress in the Tenth
district and that it will undoubtedly
lake an official count to decide.
From all Indications, the Democratic
majority will be the greatest since
1900 when Aycock swept Spencer B.
Adams off his feet by 58.9S7. In 1904
Robert B. Glenn defeated Charles J.
Harris by 49,256. Governor W. W.
Kitchln's majority in 1908 was 49,
256, while Governor Locke Craig car
ried the state in 1912 by 45.4S6.

with new orna

bined lighting capacity of 4.500 can
dle power. The average distance be
tween the posts will be 100 feet,
so that the whole street will be
flooded with light. The upper lamps
will be on a separate circuit and will
be turned on all night; the annual
cost, which is estimated at $12,'i50,
will be borne by the city; the lower
lights on each standard will burn un
til midnight and their cost per year,
which will be approximately $20,000,
will be borne jointly by the merchants,
property owners, and the street-car
company. The lamps will extend up

13 blocks on one side of the street and
15 blocks on the other. Merchants
expect to benefit by the improvement.

PLANT TREES ALONG ROADS
Their Value in the Hot, Blistering
Days of Summer Can Hardly Be
The time will come, says a New Jer
sey society that is devoted to the ad
vocacy of roadside planting, when trees
will line both sides of our rural roads.
That is an optimistic observation, but
there is probably a good deal of truth
back of it. The farmer everywhere Is
undoubtedly beginning to show greater
pride and interest in the appearance of
his place. The city resident's invasion
and the consequent establishment of
"summer homes" and "country estates"
has set a new standard in many com
munities. It requires little imagination to fancy
how quickly a sunny, blistering hot,
dusty road could be transformed if the
farmers whose property abuts on it
along a stretch of two or three miles
would all agree to line it with saplings
this fall. The work could ba done In
a few days when little else about the
farm requires attention. The improve
ment would bespeak a spirit of prog
ress and enterprise and, in a few years'
time, would benefit the planters far
more than it would benefit the casual
tourist. It would go far toward sub
duing dust and it would make the trip
of the farmer and the farmer's family,
to and from his home, much more com
fortable and much pleasauter. It would
be, in short, a splendid investment.
Tear Down Wooden Fences.
Get rid of the wooden fences and
you will help get rid of rats, Hies und
mosquitoes. So says Dr. John D.
Blake, health commissioner of Haiti
more. Doctor Blake believes that
much disease and sickness is brought
about by the wooden fence.
"First of all the wooden fence is an
obstruction to proper supervision of
the premises by the police," the com
missioner said. "The presence of rub
bish, stagnant pools and other Insani
tary conditions in yards cannot b1 de
tected by the police or health ollicials
as long as they are hidden by wooden
fences. The back fence is an excellent
hiding place for burglars and tramps
at night. If a burglar manages to
jump the fence he can take his time
getting into the house. There Is no
need for him to hurry, as the fence
keeps anyone from seeing him.
"The wooden fence prevents the
proper circulation of air. Persons liv
ing in houses surrounded by high
wooden fences do not get the real ben
efits of pure, fresh air. This Is detri
mental to the health.
"Rats, flies and mosquitoes carry
germs and spread disease. To do away
with disease we must exterminate
these. The dilapidated wooden fence
attracts bugs of all descriptions. Rats
gnaw at the v ood and dig holes under
and around -'it. These holes become
filled with, "water and in time are ex
cellent breeding places for flies and
"The fact that the wooden fence
hides all this dirt and filth Is a power
ful argument why It should be done
away with. What woman would allow
dirt, garbage and other refuse matter
to collect in her back yard If she
thought her neighbors saw it? Every
body has more or less pride, and if
each back yard was thro LtSJ UVl
the view of the neighbo efficient
would be greatly Improve
