Mr. Gus Parker started last Friday
morning: with his wife to the
hospital at Brynon City, hoping that
a noted surgeon there could do
something for Mrs.Parker. Her
internal sufferings are excruciating,
and cannot possibly be borne much
longer. Oh, how our sympathies go
out to the afflicted.
Mr. J. M. Barnes Is sick?an
a be ess in the head causing him
much suffering. Mrs. Barne? has
been confined to her bed for some
weeks now, and does no* seem to
mend much.
Lawyer McCall was in Marble on
the 16th.
Mr. Folger, pastor in charge of the
Murphy circuit, preached in Marble
Baptist Church ?ast Sunday night to
a not large but interested congregation.
Perhaps being before a strange
congregation, he was a little rash in
reproving some young boys for
what he thought was inattention.

Mr. Geo. M. Kinsey, from An- j
drews, was on our streets Tuesday.:
Your correspondent is pleased
with the lawyers' recommendations
to the county commisioners: That
they build the new court house of
Cherokee maible; that they *^ ild
large and roomy?meeting the
future demands; that they build
beautifully, gracefully, as well as
for convience and comfort and use.
Mr. Scout: may we hope, too, that
they will build with due regards to j
, the court-room's acoustics? By all 1
means, Mr. Commissioner; build us
(a court room in which we can heai |
| understandingly?something we \
could not do in the old building,
j What is this, Mr. Editor, we see:
and hear so much about in North 1
Carolina wanting to repeal our capi- i
tal punishment laws, and about
personal disbelief in capital punishment
any-way? In spite of capital
punishment crime conditions with us
are bad. With the death penalty
removed would come increased
murders and criminal assaults, etc.,
' bring manyfold terrors to our people
The desire of so many people to
save arvn criminals irom legal death
punishment and their indifferent-^
o the fate of the criminal's victim,
s hard to understand. Just why
some men and women have heartpity
for the murderer, lor the
rapist, and no care for the victim
is un-knowable to those of us who
stand for law enforcement. Why
will or how can, men and women
make heroes of murderers and of
">rutes who do worse than murder to
women? So many Jurors object to
themselves because they oppose
sapital punishment. They never
stop to ask themselves Is their objections
just sentiment, or sound reasoning.
They do not stop to see if
there are not law- destroyers and
breakens- down of respect for law.

street so virulently its did tht
dog show virus ??n the day when tin
local papers first announced that tht
city's kennel club was to hold its an
nual aliow. six weeks lienc*.
Vine street had n??r gone dog-mat!
until after the last year's show. Sine*
then nearly every family on that prettj
residence street had acquired a tbor
ouglihred ami pedigreed dog of somt
breed or other; and each family sol
emnly believed Its own dog to he tht
tines; on earth.

he had once been a professional dog
breeder and a hanger-on at shows.
Now that there was a city dog sliov
in prospect, the old man was more Ii
demand than ever before. All Vim
street was consulting him. For. ibougl
Vine street was dog-daft. Vine streo
had little practical knowledge of dog
anil no practical knowledge at all o
dog shows. Kvery family wanted b
exhibit Its .nr? dog at the show am
no family had any cleat knowledge o
the right procedure.
Accordingly, one evening Old Mai
Negley was asked to stop In at Cola
nel )'rouse's, (where a group of neigh
liors had gathered) to answer some fev
thousand questions and to give wisi
counsel as to the show.
"To begin with." said the old dog
man. after serving patiently as a tar
get for queries for some minutes, "t<
begin with, this is to be a one-da;
open-air show. That's why I'm no
advising any of you to keen your dog
away from it?even Hie young do*

Hfi open-nir show. If you'll use a ver;
few simple precautions, your do* is ii
:.o danger. At every show?especlall;
at a show that lasts more than on<
day- there's a certain amount of rlsl
that yorr dog may get distemper. An<
if he g* ts It. there's pretty near ui
even chance that he'll die.
"It was much worse before th
American Kennel club started It
splendid battle against distemper a
shows. an?l It'll he much better \vh?
the American Kennel club has com
pleted Its wise precautions. I'.u
there's still some danger that a do.
will come hack from n show with th
germs of his death upon him. *
"There wouldn't he any such dangei
either, if exhibitors were R|s?rtsiiie:
enough to keep their dogs away fror
shows unless the dogs were in flrsi
rate health, and not to show them any
where for months after there lias bee:
distemper In their kennels. The Amerl
can Kennel club Is making It dangei
our for crooks who do that.
"Here's an almost sure way to kee;
your dog from getting distemper at i
one-flay show: In the first plnce. don'
let him touch noses with any dog ther
. r drink out of a pan that any othe
dog has drunk ont of. I">??n't let hlr
sniff at the ground. In the exercla
ring or anywhere else. Keep him on
?f draffs.
"The iiilnule he get* home, put soin
grain alcohol on a wad of cotton woe
and sponge his Hps and nose and th
bottom* of his feet. Then brush hlr
thoroughly and rub some faked nap
thaline into his coat (or powderei
camphor balls) and then give him .

there so jw-ople will admire him am

But there's nothlnp In It for the do

f "A ilos show Is different from any

one mu.v win over the other at oj;e
show. while the second doff may win
over lite first, at the next show.
t "I think that's what makes dogs
showing so exciting. It is more like
