SARAH SMITH TELLS A PITEOUS STORY Learea Babe and Vanishes, Well Dressed, Educated and of Refined Appearance. A pathatlc story comes from Dur ham as follows: A white woman, young and handsome, who gave her name as Mrs. Sarah Smith, left her three months old son with a lady here for a few minutes and now, she has abandoned the child and gone to parts unknown. She arrived In the city a few days ago with the baby in her arms. She said that she had bnt five cents in the world and was a stranger In a strange land. The story touched several, and in a short while a subscription had been started to get money for a week's lodging and board. In a short while the woman was quartered in a nice boarding house, and several were out looking for a position for her. She was profuse in her thanks and yesterday went to see Mrs. Un derwood, who had been so kind to her. After staying there a short while the woman asked Mrs. Under wood to keep her baby for an hour or so, and then she went out. This was the last seen of her. Later in the afternoon Mrs. Un derwood received a note from "Mrs. Smith," telling her that she was gone and that she would leave the child in her keeping. "If I have sinned In this," she said, "It is not my fault. I cannot raise Ithe child and make my own living, and if I could my son could not be raised as he deserves to be. Kiss him good bye for me and pray that I may be forgiven." She added that she was going to Raleigh and then, she knew not where. The woman was well dressed and educated. She was young and re finedin InmaMiuia mA .. MJ 4 ly vpX what the tretendd tn ho A Kf NACXABLE tCUiC UAH. A . ua M.

College the offer oi two prizes by Mr. A. L. Cham berlain, postmaster In West Italelgh, has developed a spirit of thrift and Mxra-Miiy that Is most adniliahlA. Mr. l hamberlain at the beginning onerai a prize of $5.00 hj young man who kept the neatest aud best stated accounts of oi nis receipts and expenditures for tne year and 16.00 to the tudent wno spent the least money in an un necessary manner. T. f uc winner in tne first contes is Mr. w. L.. Jrulp, whose account book Is a model of neatness. The HMvmil $5.00 was won by Mr. II. p. Foster, who lias not spent on cent unnecm. sarily during the past school year. .mere were thirteen contestants for the prizes and the iudees whn selected Messrs. Fulp and Foster as tne winners were Messrs. Cha. tt. Heine and C. C. McDonald. In the contest as to who would spend the least money unnecessarilv several Interesting facts were devel oped. Mr. Fulp, whose books were the neatest and best kept, spent un necessarily only $3.65. while others of the thirteen spent sums ranging from $1.65 to $7.00. Among the unnecessary things which the young men confess to h .ve Indulged in are chewing gum, bananas, lemons, oranges, cigars, tobacco, street car nues. valentines, wanna mnri., chickens, tickets to baseball and foot ball games and opera tickets, while one young man Includes tickets to lectures. No student confesses to having spent money on his best girl or to Having squandered his shekels In buying flowers for her. Mr. Foster's record is remarkable. He came to the A. and M. with $40, nis own earnings, and by his indus try and application earned during the year $113.06. This money he got by cutting wood, milking the cows, uoing carpenter work, work ing in tne garden, and so on. While the other boys were playing or sleep ing he was at work. He spent $24 ior college dues $72 for board and lM A A y ior necessary expenses. This left him a balance of $27.87 at the end of the year, and is a tribute to his thrift and economy. He is one of the brightest students In the col lege and has taken a high stand. The committee commend the en A . a m tire thirteen as makine hiehlv meritorious reports and wishes there were prizes for each one of the con testants. IS EVERYTHING A BUNCLE.

The way the last legislature mud dled the law regulating elections in towns and cities is beginning to bear iruit, At Lenoir, N. C, there seems to be a dual government as one in stance of the result. W. C. Newland and six commissioners were elected without opposition and were duly sworn in. Mr. Poe, the former May or, refuses to step down and out. claiming that the election was illegal ly hem in that It was held May 6th Instead of May 7th as the "bungled" law demands. In Winston and other places there was no election at all. the Mayor and Aldermen holding on under charter privileges although the new law repealed all charters In conflict. Verily, a few more legis latures like the last and it will keep the Supreme Court busy unravel ling the tangles. PRACTICE OF PENSION SHARPERS. Another Scheme for Adding Thousands to The Pension Roll. Washington, May 23. An Inves tlgation of the practices of pension sharpers in San Francisco and their methods of annoying soldiers return ing from the far East has been started, by the Pension Bureau, and prosecutions may be expected in the near future, according to the officials of the law division of the bureau. The sharpers are not all representa tives of large pension law firms here, but many of them are, and their methods are characterized as illegally outrageous. They meet returning soldiers at the docks and often per suade them to file applications for pensions even before they have been discharged. DIDN'T KNOW COMBINATION. Woman Breaks a Safe to Make Coup In Northern Pacific Stocks. The wife of a merchant in Yon kers was moved to attempt safe breaking by the craze to speculate. Her husband is In Europe. In his safe were 500 shares of Nothern Pacific A Wall street man who had sold them to him rushed to the wife and offered her $60,0Q0 for the bunch, which represented a profit of $40,000. . . , . "But I don't know the -combination to the safe," expostulated the wife in answer to the Wall street man's frantic appeal for the stock. "Well, blow it open, send for a professional cracksman, hire a safe expert. I'll pay any man $1,000 to get the safe open." The wile protested, but the Wall stree man 'finally induced her to consent to the burglary and he got the' stock. The wife spent $15 cabling the nera of the transaction to her husband agot this reply: "Good give him the safe, too." RALEIGH.

Your teachers and fellow students felt that a deed like that was worthy of something more than passing words of thanks.

I think it fitting that one of the sufferers, blest by your gentle ministry, should present these tokens, and I shall ask Miss Leila Highsmith to perform this pleasant service.

A DELUGE OF RAIN. WHOLE TOWNS IN MOUNTAIN COUNTIES SWEPT AWAY BY THE FLOOD. ICSSIS AT ASriYIUI, BAIT CILUM. Umch to Us I tfw. I rv-. . . " " " mmm tmnmwrnm KlWTwo " 5st week there was another vial- unon ot storm and flood in sections oi ine state, and wherever the flood occurrea u was one or the worst and mosi aestructive on record. In the eastern and piedmont section of the A m. sute there was much havoc. The Catawba river at Moreanton ws 01 ieei aoove low water At three places near Marlon It chaneed Its course. At Clarion seven hun dred feet of track on the Western N C. division of the Southern R. R. were washed away. Passenger train no. 11 was water-bound at Mud Cut ior three or four days. The Cllfls Hotel on the Catawba river, near Hickory, floated down the river, half a mile from its ori&rinal site. At Durham 5.28 inches of rain fell mm xiuuxb. xuno river was higher than ever before. Many I ? . Dnages were washed away and the damage to growing crops will amount up Into the hundred thousands of aoiiars. The Durham water wnrka mmm. . K. plant was badly damaged. One hun- dred feet of the dam. one emrint. one vww biu oi ine engine nouse, one -n n. naAn MX A. side of the filter house, and forty nve leet ot shafting were washed away. At and around Moreanton in tturxe county there was the most terrific down-pour of rain ever re membered. It is the concensus of opinion that the streams were never so high. Two iron bridges that cost the county $8,000 each one on the McDowell road and the other on the road towards Lenoir have been destroyed. The central pier of the McDowell bridge, of rock and of magnificent proportions, was top pled over by the logs coming down the river. The flood was so un- usual and of such grand proportions that people flocked from all sections and directions to see it. At Kanlord, on the Seaboard Air, water rose in the boiler room of the Sanford cotton mills, putting out tne fires and stopping the mill. The engine room of Cobb's sash and blind factory was flooded. Every Dridge in Sanlord across Little Buf falo creek save one was washed away. Washouts were reported along all lines of railroad, and trains on all roads were delayed from one to six hours. LIFE AND PROPERTY DESTROYED. Knoxville, Tenn., May 22. Mil lions of dollars damage has been done, and at least eight lives lost in upper Tennessee by the floods, caused by the recent heavy rains. The Doe river, the Wautauga river, the Hols- ton, the Chuckey and the French Broad are out of bounds and the growing crops have been swept away all along their course. On the Chuckey river three chil dren of Joseph Hill were drowned in his house, while he was at his barn looking after his stock and un aware of the danger. On this river six bridges were swept away, doing a damage of about $60,000 while the damage at farms, houses and stock along this stream in Greene county alone will amount to one half mil lion dollars. At Leeper's Mill, on Chuckey river, two Bolivar brothers fell from a boat into the river, being drowned one The Holston river is rapidly rising. At Morristown twelve houses floated past to-day and one corpse went past on drift-wood. One hundred thous and feet of railroad ties bound to gether passed this point. These are supposed to have come from Eliza beth town. During the week nearly all the larger streams in the state equalled or broke their records for high water. But the most destructive rise of the waters was reported from streams near the mountains. A conservative estimate of the damage done to property and 'crops in McDowell county Is two hundred thousand dollars. . All crops along the watercourses were entirely de- stroyed, and some small farms have been left absolutely worthless. Four or five cloud-bursts occurred on the mountains above, washing away houses, barns and mills. Catawba river was three feet higher than it has ever been and was two miles wide where the aver age width is one hundred feet. Thousands of fish were left in the river bottom when the water sub sided. The following is a list of the heaviest losers by the storm: J. H. Greenlee f 10,000, John M. Greenlee $3,000, Mai. Wilson $8,000. Maj. Young $3,000, William Quinn (house and all stock), D. N. London $1,800, Miss Sallie Young $1,500, Maj. Conley $2,500, gilas - Proctor $3,000, J. G.
