Thursday ofterLoon at Ruffin
two children of Tobe Stacy, col
ored, aged two and six years, met
death in an unusual way. The
children were at home alone and
were hanging with their heads out
of a window. The prop used to
hold up the window was knocked
out and the sash fell down, strik
ing both across the neck. When the
mother, who cooks for Mrs. J. S.
Johnson, returned home, the body
of one was cold and the other was
also dead, but had lived some time
after the blow. A four-year-old
child was standing between the
two when the mother arrived, but
it was so badly frightened it had
not made known the accident. The
father of the children works fof
the railioad company. Both chil
dren were buried in the same
grave. Reidsville Review.
EARLY IS NOT A LEPER.
Mrs. Early While In Salisbury Tells Report
er White Spots Were Caused by Acid.
Mrs. Early, wife of John R.
Early, now quarantined on the
Potomac flats in Washington D.
C , because of symptoms of leper
cy, was in the city Thursday night.
She was on her way xo Washing
ton to see her husband and while
here she was interviewed by the
Charlotte Observer' a reporter, who
writes that paper as follows :
"She was accompanied by her
mother and carried her little 1-year-old
bey, who is giving the
leper much concern, lest the dread
disease be in his bedy, Mrs. Ear
ly came in on the belated Ashe
ville train and took the next north
bound passenger train to Wash
ington. She says she knows noth
ing of her husband's strange ill
nessintil she saw an account of it
in a newspaper Tuesday, She is
loth to believe that Early has lep-
rocy, but in the" face of the doc
tors' diagnosis of the case she fears
the worst. Mrs. Early says her
huaband at one time worked in a
place where a strong acid was used
and which when it touched the
flesh burned blisters and left white
spots resembling a white ulcer and
that he was burned a number of
times by this solution spattering
on him. She was exceeding anx
ious to hurry fco her husband, al
though realizing the fact that she
would only be allowed to get with
in a short distance of his tent."
A dispatch from Washington to
the same paper Saturday says :
"The Spanish War Veterans
yesterday passed resolutions se
verely censuring the Washington
health authoritier for the location
of. early's camp in a low, flat and
damp place near the riser.
"The actiug health officer, Mr.
McLean, today issued a state
ment in reply, in which he says:
"We have done everything in
our power to make him comfort
able. Do the Spanish War Veter
ans think the District health of
ficers 'have .not as much pity as
they have for this unfortunate
man, who has served his country
long and honorably? I myself
come of soldier stock, and my
father and my brother are filling
soldier graves. The fact that this
man is a soldier would appeal as
strongly to me as to anyone. I
do not think it necessarv or cos
sible to take any action on the
complaint made by the Spanish
"If we decide to keep Early here
permanently we will build a house
for him. It is possible his camp
may later be moved to some other
spot. The people of Washington
may be assured, however, that so
long as Early remains here he wil
receive the best possible care."

A Strange Fish In Kansas.
A great many guesses have been
made today by the residents of
Fairbury as to the name of a con
pie of animals, or fish, whichever
they may be, brought in by Gus
Bitzer, a Rock Island engineer,
when he returned on his run to
In appearance the things re
semble a channel catfish, being of
the same color and shape, but
they have four legs and each leg a
foot with five toes. Immediate
ly back of the head three growths
appear on each of the animals,
The strangers seem to get around
every bit as well on dry land as
they do in water. They have been
on exhibition all day today and
hundreds of persons have seen
them, but no one has been found
who ever had seen anything like
them before. Bitzer caught them
in a pool of water near Belleville
yesterday. He says there are
many specimens in the Belleville
neighborhood, but nobody there
seems to know what they are. The
animals appear to be vicious and
snap at anything held near them,

Mr. John White, of 38 Highland
Ave., Houlton, Maine, says :
"Have been troubled with a cough
every winter and spring. Last
winter I tried many advertised
remedies, but the cough continued
until I bought a 50c. bottle of Dr.
King's New Discovery ; before that
was halt gone. This winter the
same happy result has followed ;
a few doses once more banished
the annual cough. I am now con
vinced that Dr. King's New Dis

A Bad Condition of Affairs.
The local Merchants' Associa
tion is in a fair way to make things
lively around this town. It has
issued a creditr book, giving each
person a rating. This book is not
the milk in the cocoanut. Last
week it made a statement to the
Ministers' Association and asked
them to preach a sermon on the
subject of not paying a just debt.
The various ministers took the
matter under advisemont and
some of them, it appears have
been investigating. Yesterday
morning Dr. Detwiler, at West
Market church, referred to the
matter just before his sermon and
woke up some of the hre
the 5' brock-sTrvice at Grace
P. church, the pastor, Rev. T
Ogburn, is said to have taken the
hide along with the hair on the
question of not paying one's debts
1 his is a deplorable situation. It
is said that the Merchants5 Asso
ciation has due it some $20,000 in
Greensboro, most of which it is
impossible to collect. So bad is
the situation that an agitation has
been started all over the State to
repeal the homestead exemption
law of this State. Greensboro
