Sample copies will be furnished
to all free of charge; . .
Agents should be vr ry careful

to send us the name and address

search of his house for contra
band liquor, are lying at High-
smith Hospital in a most preca
rious condition, really hovering
between life and death. The at
tending physicians are unable to
hold out much hope for the re
cqvery of either of the wounded
men, and it will probably be 24
hours before they can hazard a
definite opinion of their ultimate
Chason's wound is in the head
and the physicians have been as
yet unable to remove the bullet.
Buckingham was shot in the
shoulder and the ball pierced the
lung and likewise has not been re
moved. Pneumonia is threatened.

had gone up on train 82 of th e
Atlantic Coast Line in search of
him. Walker Had beat his way
to Dunn on a freight train an d
bought there a ticket for Wash
ington. He then r boarded traiu
82 and Mr. Smith recognized him
and covered him with a revol ver.-
- Walker had shaved off his mus
tache and had his face blacked.
He was taken in charge by Sheriff
Watson i of this county, and J.1B.
Tillingbam, of Fayetteville, and
taken to Raleigh for safti keeping,
Excitement was intense here all
