Frank Smith, Colored,' an Ei-Comict (Tails In a Doctor fif Wound Received Burins Night. 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 piazza, went down a pair of steps into the yard and left in a trot, we having in the meantime given him another reminder of being loaded. Examination was made and nothing had been taken from Generally when one finds a bur glar in his house the first thought is to kill or get killed, consequent- ly we did not wait to ascertain whether the intruder was armed. nor did we wait tor mm to snoot first. If the unfortunate man was hit and was fatally wounded we regret the affair very much, but feel that we acted in self de fense and in the defense of those whom we Jove and whose protec tion is in oar keeping. 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 r o-- 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 when 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. MARRIAGES. On the evening of the 9th, Miss Edna McCubbins, daughter of Mr. and Mrs Sam'l J. McCubbins, and Harold A. Kouzer, were united iu marriage at the First Presbyterian church, Rev. Byron Clark officiating. After the cere mony a reception was held at the home of the bride's parents on South Main street, which was at tended by a large number of the friends and acquaintances of the newly wedded oouple. Ihe pres ents were numerous and handsome. Later. Mr. and Mrs. Rouzer left ou a hort bridal triP their deBti nation being a secret to all except themselves. The bride is a well known and popular young belle of Salisbury who numbers her friends by the score. Mr. Rouzar is from Way nesboro, Pa., but has resided in this city for about two years, being connected with the Frick Company. The best wishes of a Company host of warm friends, go with the young couple. There was a very pretty heme wedding at the residence of Mrs. J E. Stansill, at Mill Bridge, on the evening of Tuesday, the 9th 'JSSL . i if! wii. in . j 1.1.-- bride of Joe C. McCanless. The ceremony was performed by Rev. 0. W. Walsh, pastor of Thyatira Presbyterian church. The young couple were driven to this city the same evening and left for a visit to some of the northern and eaBt pro cities. They will reside at Granite Quarry, May happiness attend them. Congressional Contention, Notice is hereby given that the Congressional Convention for the Eighth Congressional District wil be held in Salisbury on Tuesday, the 23rd day of June at 4 p.m., for the purpose of nominating a can didate for Congress and attending to such other business as may come before it. T. H. Vakdbbfoed, Chairman. REVIVAL CLOSED. Much Good Accomplished During Dr. 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 con- corns';'.:- . . Of judgment and of mercy, should "ware-' '. be- 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 t 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 home. A New Macadam Road. Rowan county is building a sol id macadam road from Salisbury to China Grove. The work is now complete with the exception of a few miles just abova China Grove, but the roadside is lined for quite a distance along the route prepar atory for the work, and the ma chinery and road force are doing an excellent pieoe of road build ing. On this side of China Grove the work will probably be extend ed some distance this side of Lan- dis, connecting there with the Ca barrus line. When complete this w?ll nxra Cnnonri and Salisbnrv will give Uoncord ana Salisbury a complete stretch of the pretti- at macadam road to be f ouud anywhere. DEATH BT DROWNUTC. 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. FAITH. William Bame and Solomon Yost are both confined to their beds, not able to be up. Mrs. E. C.
