Thomas J. Boykin, of 1 g,
Clinton, this week filed a suit in 'j.
the Sampson County Superior p
court asking damages in the sum n
of thirty thousand dollars against
two Wilmington beauty shop q
operators for the alleged wrong- ^
fill death of her daughter, Miss
Esther Gilbert. b
Miss Gilbert died in September p
of last year from blood poison, j
allegedly resulting from burns b
received while having a perma- fj
nent wave in the Wilmington
beauty establishment. e<
The case is of interest in this ]e
county by reason of the fact g
that Miss Gilbert taught in the c
schools of Brunswick for four t<
years. She made many friends! i
during her work here. Coming to! n
Brunswick in 1026 she was a tl
member of the Mill Creek school

Fox Hound Lo:
Destined T<
Valle Fredere. caretaker at
Camp Sapona, has a pack of
eight fox hounds of which he
is very proud. They are all
members of a liter of thirteen
pups born last year to a fine
bitch he owns and he has
been breaking them to run
One cool morning recently
he had his dogs out. It wasn't
long before they jumped' a
fox, and several hours later
they had made the catch.
Fredere sounded his horn
and his dogs came to the
car. That is, all except one
came. Repeated sounding of
the horn failed to bring any
response, so he returned
home to see if the dog had
quit the pack to get back
for an early dinner.
A check up at headquarters
revealed her still missing,
so he went back and
started looking for her
again. Late that afternoon
he found her hung fast in a
fence. The barbs, had lascerated
the leg to the
bone, and Fredere saw
that he had a nasty bit
of do g survery on his
hands. He treated the dog

Shrimp Season
Appearance of Few Shrimp
Off Southport Starts
Speculation As To When
Big Fall Season Will Begin
Boats That Have Been
Widely Scattered During
Summer Expected To
With good catches being made
last week on all occasions when
the trawlers were able to get outside,
everything is now in readiness
for the handling of all
shrimp and fish that the fleet
can produce. Apparently the active
season is beginning two
months earliej than last year.
Ben Gray arrived Monday from
Morehead City, a number of his
boats had preceded him here and
others are arriving daily. Last
year he did not open until near
the end of September. With a considerable
fleet already here, he
will have 35 to 40 boats at work
by the middle of August if production
justifies that many in
coming on so early.
Lewis J. Hardee arrived Monday
from Louisina. His boats
have been working down there
but some will be here this fall.
In addition to the craft which
he owns he will buy from independent
shrimpers. It may be
some time before he will be able
to open up for construction work
is in progress on a new dock
and fish house which he will use.
Sasa Fodale also arrived this
nast week, has his house in readiness
and is assembling boats. He

ses Leg; Now
> Be Deer Dog
Next morning the rest of
the pack decided to start
themselves a n impromptu
hunt, and when Fredere
went to look for his patient
he discovered that she was
not in the house where she
had been left. Listening to
his dogs in their fox chase, he
soon was able to distinguish
her voice. He headed the
hunters off as quickly as
possible and caught the
wounded dog.
Her leg now was merely
dangling, so he made a
quick and painless amputation.
Persuaded by his better
judgment that no three-legged
dog had any future In
a pack of fox hounds, he
prepared to kill her. In fact
he even went so far to dig
the grave. But just before
he got ready to put the animal
out of her misery he
decided that while she had
no future for foxes, a threelegged
dog would be mighty
handy for deer. So next year
Maggie, who was about the
best of his young fox
hounds, will have to change
over from her first love to
deer driving.
