A Novel Entertainment.
A somewhat unique entertain

form of a dinner, served at the
public school building, and was
tendered in honor of those and
that was nearlv every one in
Spencer who assisted the prohi
bition forces in the recent cam-
paign. There is nothing unusual
in the mere act of eating or ain-

affair consisted in the fact that
the usual order ot tnings was re
versed and the men acted
waiters. They did their- part
at nobly and were warmly commend
ed. After the feast a large num

Last night, about 3:20 a. m.,
the editor heard a noise about his
residence and, listening, heard
the door to his dining room open
and shut. He arose, armed
himself and, without dressing,
proceeded to investigate. The
dining room door has glass in it
and, between this door and a win
dow opposite, the form of a man
was seen. Having made some
noise, the would-be burglar be
come aware of our presence and
came toward ub to the door, open
ing it and while coming out to
ward us we fired a' 32-calibre pis
tol toward him. He continued to
approach, but turned on the rear

into the yard and left in a trot,
we having in the meantime given
him another reminder of being

Early this morning a colored
boy called at the home of J. M.
Brown and asked for the loan of a
bicycle on which he wanted to go
to Spencer and inform the peo
n1 of & nficrro who had been shot

Later Dr. I. H. Foust was called
to attend Frank Smith, colored,
an ex-convict who han been shot.
Dr. Foust went to the negroe's
home and found that a bullet had
penetrated the intestines of Smith
and that he would die unless op
erated upon. Smith told Dr. Foust
several stories, one that he was
shot at the passenger depot early
in the morning, another tbat it
occurred at the city hall at 5
o'clock and that a white man shot
him. He did not give any reason
for being out so early, and his
wife could give no account of his
whereabouts or proceedings during
the night. She did not know
he went out and when he
camein. omitn s case seems quite
mysterious from his view point.
The matter was reported to the
police and sheriff and the negro
was placed under arrest for bur
clarly. He was taken to the san-
ltorium for treatment.
On the evening of the 9th, Miss

Good Accomplished During
backer's Yisit to Salisbury.
The Beries of meetings at the
First Presbyterian church in this
city, conducted by Rev. J. Ernest
Thacker, of Norfolk, Va.f came to
a close on Sunday night, The
meetings continued for two weeks
and resulted in great good, there
being a number of conversions,
probably about 70.
Dr Thacker is a forcible, ear-nest-and
eloquent preacher, pre
senting the plain, simple gospel
without any frills or furbelows.
There was a noticeable absence of
everything in the sensational line.
There was no appeal to the emo
tions, but the speaker presented
the great truths of the plan of sal
vation in a calm, but earnest
manner, and spoke at all times as
a man of his calibre might be ex
pected to speak to an audience
composed of rational, intelligent
thinking men and women. There
were hone of the methods of the
popular evangelist, no jokes,
questionable incidents and like
material used to attract and cap
tivate people, but all was solemn,
dignified and highly impressive.
Dr. Thacker would impress his
audience with the fact that he
had in mindthe lines of the poet
Cowper :
"He that negotiates: between God and
man ;-h$tiM5gg&'
As God's ambassador the i
corns';'.:- . .
Of judgment and of mercy, should
"ware-' '.
Of iSjghtpess in his speech
'Tis pitiful
Bhoula - win
To court grin, when you
a soul; .
To break a jest, when pity would
smre -v- . '
Pathetic exhortation; and to address
he skittish fancy with facetious tales,
Whdn sent with God's commission to
the heart " -
At the close of the sermon on
Sunday night Dr. Thacker spoke
of a young map he had known at
Davidson College 22 years ago.
He referred to him as a man of
noble traits, fine ability and pos-
sessing in lull measure tnose
characteristics which make man
oved and lovable. He stated that
the young man wasnot prt paring
or the ministry, and there was no
evidence that he would ever enter
the ministry. Some months after
leaving college Dr. Thacker learn
ed tnat nis mend, nad entered a
theological seminary and was pre
paring for the ministry. He said
he watched his work and his prog
ress through tha years since they
had been at college together, and
now this same young man was the
pastor of the First Presbyterian
church in Salisbury. The speaker
made a strong and tender appeal
to the congregation to give their
pastor their best effort and sup
port in his work.
Fortunately for both pastor and
congregation there is a Btrong
bond of love and sympathy exist
ing already between the two. Dr.
Clark is not a favorite alone with
his congregation, but with the
community as well. He is an
able speaker, a'deeply consecrated
man and one cannot come into
personal contact with him with
out recognizing at once his power
to attract and hold men.
Dr. Thacker did not come to
Salisbury with the hope or expec
tation of a pecuniary reward, his
effort3 were entirely for the salva
tion of souls and the spiritua
nourishment of church members
but those who attended the meet
ings & enjoyed his preaching were
not content without giving some
token of their appreciation of his
abors, so a collection was taken,
without his knowledge, which re
sulted in a purse of $160, and the
presentation to him of the same
as a free will offering.
The prayers and best wishes of
the many who had the privilege
of hearing Dr. Thacker while in
this city will follow him to his

Young Lady Formerly a Resident of this
City the Victim of a Fatal Accident.
An Anderson, 8. C, special to
the Augusta, Ga., Chronicle of
the 9th, gives the following ac
count of the death by drowning,
of Mis& Kate Knoblock. The
young lady was formerly a resi
dent here and was employed for a
time as bookkeeper at the office
of the Singer Sewing Machine Co. :
Yesterday afternosn Miss Knob
lock, Lyle Black and another
couple drove to the pond from
Florence. Thev secured a small
bateau and rowed ever the lake.
Shortly before 6 o'clock the cou
ple with Miss Knollock and Mr.
Black landed and these .two went
out on the water again. The boat
had only gone about 20 feet from
the bank when something, caused
it to capsize. It is thought that
it hit a snag.
When the boat capsized Miss
Knoblock and Mr. Black were
thrown helplessly into the water,
at that spot being some eight or
ten feet deep. Miss Knoblock
could not swim and she immedi
ately went under. Mr. Black
made heroic attempts to grasp
her and tow her to the shore near
by, but he was powerless. She
sank again, and again, each time
grasping the young man in such a
way as to prevent his getting hold
her to carry her to the shore.
Mr. Black stuck to his duty until
he became exhausted, and had not
some triends from tne bank wit-
nessed the capsizing and answered
the calls for help Mr. Black also
wou.d have lost hie life. Hie nn-
conscious body was brought to
ha shore by friends.
