appointed of the opposite political
party to the other three commission

negroes in the East ; to kill both

Got AwRjr Again.
Avery Butler, the young white
convict who some time ago waylaid
and assassinated his father at Clin
ton, Sampson county, and was sent
to the penitentiary for life, ia again
at large. Not many months ago he
escaped, but committed a crime in
Cat i wba county, was arrested there
and returned here. It appears that
he got away yesterday for th; second
time. In some way he got possession
of a suit of citizen's clothing, put it
on and deceived the guard, to that
the latter went away, having been
told by Bailer, whom he did not
know, that one of the officials want
ed to see him. Butler dropped a key
to two convicts below who were in
the plot with him and with this key
they opened the door and all three
got away. The othe two convicts

who ie about 21, is a very hardened

first paper in the State to publish
the account of the Lexington shoot,

graphic report and several other
papers had some news of it. We
should have said our paper got

that it was late and it was the only

HOUSE ROBBED IN NO. 3.
More Than One S Hundred PennicH
Taken at One Hani.
The house of Mr. Jim Browa, who
lives in No. 3 township, was entered
and robbed some time last Tuesday
by one, Espey Poteete, a neighbor to
Mr. Brown.
Poteete got quite a nice haul of
pennies, having found more than
hundred, besides seAeral pieces of
silyer.
It is said that Poteete had, some
time ago, stolen a pistol from Mr.
Milas Beaver, of the same section,
and pawned it to Mr. Brown, but
when Poteete was rumaging throng n
the house of Mr. Brown he reclaimed
the pistol with the "brownies."'
Mr. Brainard Smith was deputized
to fetch Poteete to town, and had
gotten within a mile or two of the
city, when the criminal leaped from
the vehicle and tooK leg bail for
sweet liberty. He was, the last
heard from, in Rowan county,' still
going.
Deputy Hill went fur his man
Wednesday, but having no warrant
from Rowan, ha could not arrest
Poteete.

creep in behind the counter and offer
to assist Tomroie in making some
little trick.
In this way he would disengage

chances on the msney drawer, which
is yery convenient.
Several times Mr. Graber has
missed money from the drawer, and
no longer than yesterday more than
a dollar was taken.
This morning, very early, when
Mr. Graber went to his breakfaet
the negro put in his appearance as
usual and helped himself to the
contents of the drawer, which
amounted to about $1.25.
When Mr. Graber returned he
missed his money and suspicion was

The grand career of one of the
greatest men of modern times, now
drawing to its close in the ordinary
course of nature, is one of the greatest
object lessons which can be set for the
youth of to-day.
Not all can hope to attain such
eminence, for not all are endowed by
nature, with such wonderful talents,
and backed by a rugged physique,
which can endure the strain of an
active life in the public service for so
many years.
Education Knowledge
Is the foundation for success in a
great career. Thousands of dollars
are expended yearly by men of wealth,
that their sons may be fitted for the
life it Is hoped they will lead. But
there are other ways open for the
resolute youth who will diligently
apply himself to the advantages he
finds at hand. The
Greatest of These
May safely be said to be bound up In
the twenty-eight volumes which go to
make up the new up-to-date edition of
the wonderful ENCYCLOPEDIA
BRITANNICA, which for some
time has been offered to our readers
at very low Introductory rates. It Is
also offered on such easy terms of
payment that any youth with a will
may own this great work. Only ten
cents saved each day will accomplish It.

for a few minutes and while he of
course, declined to gay what the line
of defense would be, he said enough
to show exactly what course . they
will pursue.
He said : "We shall contend, and
feel that we can show, that our ui:m
(Shemwell) is guilty of nothing in
the world not on6 single thing."
This means that selfdefense will
be the plea ; that Sneuiwell was on

that suddenly Dr. Payne, Sr., turned
towards him ; thinking that his life
was in danger and that father and

Now social gayetics arc o'er,
The Lenten season's here;
Nor tripping feet, nor music more,
In pleasure's halls you'll hear.
So women fair will lay aside
Her silks and satins rave,
While jewels will no more abide,
Or glitter in her hair.
For forty days her mind must turn
Away from worldly strife,
Her soul for holier things muat yearn
Than those of earthly life.
Alas.there's Enstcr just ahead,
Her mint! m1 .-t 1 upon it:
And then her hapless thoughts are led
To that new Easter bonnet!
