Industrial Institute opened school
September 8. Rev. W. R. Bradshaw
of Morganton gave the ad
dress. Mr. H. L. Millner expressed
appreciation and words of encoui- ,
agement. Other friends showed j
marked interest by their presence. ;
The student body comprised the I
most earnest group ever enrolled at ,
South Mountain school, with the j
largest number of young men and j
women who are over age for their J
grades. They come from various j
sections, and in unusually large j
Teachers have been engaged to
meet the needs of individuals as
well as of the group.
Miss Dorothy Bicknell of Wet
umka, Oklahoma teaches sth, 6th,
7th grades and piano. She is well
qualified, having A. B. degree from
Oklahoma Baptist University and
master's degree from Southwestern
Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas. She
comes well recommended.
Miss Effie P. Johnson, Lebanon,
Tennessee, has come to take classes
in High school. She received religious
education at Moody Bible Institute,
has degree from Peabody college and
is experienced and most efficient in
her line of work. South Mountain is
vtry fortunate in securing Miss
Miss Btrtie McCurry, a South
Mountain product, receiving her di
ploma from Boiling Springs High
school, her professional at Shelby
Training school 1929-1930,
is the successful young teacher in
the primary department.
Friends of South Mountain need
no introduction to Miss Hull, Miss |
Brown, Miss Haggard, and Mrs. j
Hunt who are adding to their pre- !
vious years of service.
Others helpers are being placed
according to the needs of increas
ing numbers. Demands are calling
for rented rooms out side of the dor
mitories. The last girl admitted had
to bring her own bed but later ones
will be supplied with new beds which
are being donated.
Nearly all pupils are members of
the dormitory family. The vegetable
boys must now pack their sacks and
fill the baskets with beans or toma-1
toes for one meal. Late crops were I
successful yet not in sufficient a-!
bundance. The people of the com-1
munity are glad to add to the supply
of food in an exchange for used
clothing. By this means and by oth
er donations it is possible to furn
ish the family more than fifty per
cent of whom have nothing to pay.
The workers and family are deeply
grateful for the contributions which
continue to be made by the friends
of South Mountain Institute.

Review Of Kings
Lattimore, R-l, Sept. 15. In a
court houses in North Carolina m
the Clerk's office are Colonial and
North Carolina Records. In North
Carolina records 1780, there is ac
count of the battle of Kings Moun
tain, followed by the British account,
stating the prisoners were cruelly
treated, marched many days without
food, and some of the best men in
the county were hanged, including
Col. Mills and Captains Wilson and
Chitwood and the British officers
were forced to witness the execu
tion. Draper's History says:
died like Romans cheering for King
George as they were swung off.
Green and Hampton escaped from
the guard, and that was the Green
that represented Rutherford Coun
ty so long in the state senate after
the war was over. After the battle
the prisoners were hurried towards
the mountains to prevent their re
lease by Col. Tarlton's- cavalry troop.
On their retreat they encamped
near, now Sandy Plains Baptist
church the first night. Here one or
two were hanged on what was long
known as the gallows oak. The
stump of that famous tree was near
George Griggs' residence twenty |
years ago. The next day they march- j
ed fifteen miles to Biggerstaffs' old
field, near Sunshine, where • th,e
others were hanged. The body of
Capt. Chitwood, was obtained by |
friends and started the Biggerstaff
grave yard. The others were buried
near where they were hanged. In
1890 I visited the place at Billy
Longs'. The gallows oak was still
standing on the east side of the
branch, though the tree had been

chopped around and killed. The pro
truding limb on which they were
hanged was still there. A lone pine
tree in a field 100 yards east was all
that marked those graves. A few
years before the civil war, these
graves were opened and the bones
exhumed and the largest skull car
ried away, supposed to be that of
Capt. Mills, by one Dr. Atkins a
South Carolinian then living in Mc-
Dowell county. Where is that skull
Opening those graves was a das
tardly event by the degenerate sons
of noble ancestry.
It is claimed that the battle at
Kings Mountain was the turning
point in the Revolution for Inde
pendence. If so, it was the French
that turned the trick and that was
the way the French got even with
England for taking Canada from
them. The gallant young French of
ficer, Lafayette was on Washing
ton's staff and helped to direct his
campaigns. Nothing succeeds like
success. However it comes. All these
were marked events in the history
of human progress jin thfc "higher
civilzation of personal liberty. But
it all depends on how we use it and
what the people make it.
