Guilford county Is becoming fa
mous for freaks and curiosities In
tho animal kingdom. Visitors to
the last State Fair will remember
the "Horse With Horned Feet,"
which was exhibited here on that
occasion. Unfortunately this horse
died last January . This horse, whose
history has already been published
by us, was bred and raised by John
and Nattle Clark, two brothers, who
live in Oak Ilidge township, be
tween Oak Ilidge and Guilford Col
lege, Guilford county. These Clark
brothers now have an ox bred and
raised by them, which is eight years
old, seven feet high and would ea
sily weigh two thousand pounds if
in good condition. His oxship is of
no especial breed and evidently gets
his immense growth from being so
well fed and cared for. The Clark
brothers have an old maiden sister,
all three living together in great
poverty and the most primitive
style. They associate with no one,
and from appearances never use
soap and water on their persons or
cut their hair and beards. They are
intensely ignorant, none of them be
ing able tq read, or write. They
h&ve. never been outside of Guilford
county. They are not only freaks
and curiosities themselves, but pro
jectors of freaks as well. All animal
nature they have anything fo do
with seems to develop into the cu

for Such an Offense.
Columbia, S. C, July 3. For the
first time in the history of South
Carolina criminal courts, a man has
been prosecuted for kissing a pretty
maid. The offender was C. C. Hop
per, an official of the Clifton Manu
facturing Company of Spartanburg,
the victim Mlta Maggie Cudd, age
16, buxom and pretty. Hopper is a
married man and there was great
interest in the trial. There was no
doubt of the kiss, Miss Cudd con
vinced the Jury. The Indictment
read "assault and battery of a high
and aggravated nature." The Jury
did not think the kissing a peniten
tiary offence, and after hanging four
hours found Hopper not guilty.

One Years Tobacco Business.
Winston did a very good business
in tobacco last year the stamp sales
exceeding those of the previous year
by some $200,000. The sales for
the last year, closing with June
30th, 1901, totaled $2,720,003.88
and the shipments of leaf tobacco
aggregated 22,666,699 pounds. This
is certainly a dollar and cents plea
for the removal of the main office
from Asheville to Winston. Where
the bulk of business is done there
the main office should be located.

ton had been convicted of killing a
helpless negro and almost killing
his wife. It was adduced in thel
evidence that the three had warned
their victim, Jeff Davix, to leave a
certain turpentine camp. Davis
obeyed instructions at once but was
forced to return on account of lack
of transportation of his household
goods. He came back on October
2nd last and was at once spotted by
his enemies, who surrounded him in
his home, and stationing themselves
behind convenient trees proceeded
to riddle the cabin with rifle balls.
Davis was told to put his gun out
side, which he did, and was soon
afterwards dragged from his house
and shot to death while in his wife's
arms. During the trial, Hamilton,
on cross examination confessed, say
ing, "Im guilty, before God, I am
guilty and I ought to be hung until
By his own confession also the
others were convicted. John Sim

town is without railroad connection

by all classes of peoples. At least
2,600 persons were present. The
four negroes were made to ascend
the gallows together at

all claimed to be on the road to

Rican Assembly today unanimously
passed the free trade resolution. The
assembly hall was crowded with
people and cheers greeted the an
nouncement that Governor Allen

The free trade resolution begins
with a preamble in which reference

"The Porto Rican Assembly, in
extra session, and acting pursuant to
the instructions of Congress, does
hereby notify the President of the

Governor Allen personally read a
message beiore tne assemDiy, in
which he exhaustively reviewed the
financial situation of tbe island, and
showed that Porto Rico posses
abundant revenues for its needs
without drawing upon customs re
ceipts. Mr. Hollander's report on
the island's resources from which
revenue could be derived was con

London, July 5. According . to
advices received by the war office
today from General Lord Kitchener,
the Boer forces caused a disastrous
train wreck yesterday north of
Naboom Spruit. The train came
from Pietersburg. Although Gen
eral Kitchener's advices, sent from
Pretoria, give no details of the
wreck itself, it is inferred that the
cars were blown up.
As a result of the wreck a lieuten
ant and nine men of the Gordon
Highlanders were instantly killed,
and one artilleryman, an engine
driver, a fireman, a guard and four
natives were injured.
General Kitchener also reports to
the war office that the British force
under Lieutenant-Colonel Grenfell
encountered Boyer's commando at
Hopewell, July 4th. After a brisk
fight, in which the British sustained
no casualties, Grenfell's men captur
ed 56 wagons, 100 rifles and 2,000
rounds of ammunition and dispersed
the burghers. They also took 93
prisoners before the Boers fled.
There is a great deal of discussion
here today over the tilt in the House
Lof Commons yesterday concerning
the responsibility for the continua
tion of the war in South Africa and
the revelation, during the debate
that Mr. Kruger and General Botha
were recently permitted to commun
icate. Oom Paul urged that the
burghers prosecute the fight and ac
cept nothing but independence.
The criticism of t he leaders of the
opposition for their alleged pro
Boer attitude seems to be popularly
regarded as merited.

will be established and a rather ex
tensive plan inaugurated for recruit
ing young men of the South for the
navy. This is part of the plan de

that recruiting parties were sent into

boys for service. The plan has
worked so well that six ships the

The officials are now turning their
attention to the South, as they have
been advised by letters from that
section that North Carolina and
other Southern states are fertile dis
tricts for obtaining young men for
the service. One of these letters
speaks of the splendid naval con
tingents recruited in the South dur
ing the Spanish war. It points out
that North Carolina is full of sounds
and has a long water front on the
ocean, so that there are many young
men having some knowledge and
apitude for the water. Following
this suggestion the Navy Depart
ment will now seek to make enlist
ments at various points in the South.
One party is proceeding by land
from Port Royal and will visit the
following Southern cities: Columbia,
S. C; Augusta, Ga.; Durham, N C;
Greenville, S. C; Charlotte, N. C;
Harrisburg, N. C; Spartenburg, S.

Carolina, as well as the by-ways and
smaller settlements. '

"Six bags of gold, each containing

appeared irom tne mint and no

of the Mint Roberts and his staff of

mystery since June 29th.
The annual count of the coin
mounting to $25,000,000, began last
Friday. On Saturday six bags were
found to be missing from the cash

tallied with those of the other de

to the conclusion that somebody ac

the mint had taken the money.
Director of the Mint Roberts of
Washington, D. C, made the follow
We have been very reluctant to
conclude that a shortage exists. We
have fought against the belief that
there is anything, but after ; three
days' work in checking calculations
and going over the count we have

less in coin than the books calls for.
There appears to be no escape from
the conclusion that some ' one or
more persons employed in the mint

of an overpayment to a depositor.
It is Impossible, however, that so
large an overpayment could be made.
