advantage of the opportunity
for saving their meat.

Fashions Change in China.
Fashions are beginning to change
even in Kweilin. The other day
an English speaking Chinese stu

of this city, called upon me. He
was fairly well dressed in foreign
style. I asked him if the people
stared much and he said no, but
hundreds croweded round to
'look see" when he and his
brother from Japan took! their
sisters out for a walk. In fact
they were so much annoyed by
the crowds "that they appealed,
not very successfully, to the po
lice. Fashions are changing in other
repects also. There is a move
ment on foot now to establish an
athletic club for members of the
various schools and colleges.
When we arrived it was late in
the afternoon, and soon after, in
the stillness of the evening hour,
we heard hundreds of children's
voices singing a weird sort of
chant, which on inquiry turned
out to be a patriotio song being
taught by officially appointed
teachers in the schools cloBe by.

DESPERATE DEED OF NE6R0 BUR6LAR.
RobberriiR Hickory: Unrder In Newton.
Hickory Democrat Nov. ath.
t - '
Last Saturday morning early
stories began to circulate as to
robbery in West Hickory. Sifted
down, the following facts were
brought out : Some person or
persons attempted to enter the
homes of Messra. J. S. Leonard
and Setzer. They broke into the
residence)! Mrs. Porter, and Miss
Mattie Porter was awakened by a
oloth soaked in some anaesthetic
being thrown over her face. -They
saw no one. All tne doors to tne
house were open.
At Mr. Summey Propsts' the
robber took his trousers out of the
bed-room into the parlor and stole
all the money in the pockets,
The supposition is that the
thief went on from here to New
ton. There an effort was made
to enter the home of Mrs. Dave
Barringer. - She 'phoned to Chief
J. L. Goforth, who came at once.
To quiet Mrs. Barringer's fright
he left his revolver- with her, and
having found the man's tract,
followed it to the home of Mr.
Bob Huitt. The burglar started
out oi tne Kitcnin. as ne saw
Mr. Goforth, he fired, but missed
The chief, armed only with his
billy, attacked the thief, who
fired at close range, the ball strik
ing Mr. Goforth in the stomach.
The burglar ran, escaping before
help came. Mr. Goforth was car
ried into Mr. Pink Holbrook's
where he liesQin a desperate con
aition, miss Annie uuitt was
found to be dazed from the ef
feet of some drug, probably the
same used in Miss Porter's case.
Mr. Goforth has been a snlen
did officer, and is universally
likod and respected in Newton.
The state of publio opinion in re
gard to bis opponent through-out
the county is and which would
render it a bad business for any
one even suspected. Threats of
vengeance have freely been made.
It iB hoped that' our people will
control their juifc anger. It is a
terrible thing, enough, to madden
any man, to reflect that a law
abiding citizen cannot lie down
at night without risk of life and
property by such miscreants as
While identification is not pos

was a negro.

upon a new made grave in the

and they decided to see what was
in it. Upon investigation it was
found to be a real human child

that they immediately reburried
it in the same grave. It was a

found everything in good condi
tion, except two new doors need
ed in the old ladies' building, and
two fire-places should be overhaul
ed in the' same building. We
would call the . attention of the
County Commissioners to the fact

such steps to repair same as may

Fifth. We also visited the
county chain gangs by committee,
gang No. 1 located near Faith,
and gang No. 2 located near Salis
bury, on road leading to China
Grove, and found botn to be in
good condition, except some of the
mattresses used by some of the
colored prisoners at camp No. 2.
Two of these should be refilled.
As a whole, however, we feel that
the keepers are having proper re
gard for the humane treatment of
the prisoners, as regards, food,
raiment and sleeping quarters.
. Sixth. We enter our protest
against any proposition to sell
the present site of the court house
or any part of the Bame without

chairman of the board of county
commissioners as soon as the
