tion When Told 11c Should Be
Handed hy the Neck Until Dead.
When Criminal Court convened at
9 o'clock this (Saturday) morning
the walls of the court house enclosed
within a curious crowd of eager lis
teners who had swarmed into the
murky room to hear His Honor
Judge L L Greene pass sentence
upon Frauk Howard, who had been
found guilty, by a jury of twelve
men, of arson, the penalty for which j
is death. When His Honor asked i
the prisoner to arise, a stillness pern
vaded the court room that would
make the heart of the most hard
hearted quake, but the doomed crim
inal arose with a steadiness that
showed no sign of emotion. He was
told to si t down, and immediately
the judge presented in a few wdrds
the penalty for the awful crimfe of
applying the torch, referring to
evidence in which the criminal said:
"I meant to burn everything on the
premises, Gillon and all his family."
The Judge said:
"Frank Howard, the jury has
found you guilty of arson, the pen
alty of which is death. The court
assigned you counsel that did all
that could be done for you, but the
facts were so plain that a good, able,
intelligent jury and able counsel
could only.fiad you guilty. The
law says a man guilty of so heinous
a crime i3 not fit to live in a civil
ized community. You will be re
macded to the county jail till Fri
day, the 28th day of August, be
tween the hours of 10 a. m , and
p. m. When the sheriff of Cabarrus
county will take you to a place
prepared for execution, when he
shall hang you by the neck until
you are dead. And may Cod have
mercy on your soul. In the mean
time 1 advise you to solicit the aid
of Christian people to look after
your spiritual welfare." The man
aat facing the judge, watching as
the word3 that sealed his doom fell
from His Honor's lip brazenly, and
when the sentence had been con
cluded, the negro made a sickly
grin r.nd turned . his head away.
Not once did he wince.
Judge Green congratulated How
ard and spake in high praise of the
community in which the foul deed
wa3 done that the people ' allowed
him a fair and impartial trial in
stead cf wreaking the vengeance of
an pnragiid people.

The First Cotton PoU. .
Mr. Archey Cline, cf St. John's
neighborhood, brought to The
Standard the first pod ot cotton
we have seen thia year. He says
that there are many open bolls in
the field from which this one came.
Cotton is opening rapidly and will
continue to do so as long aa the hot,
clear weather lasts.
His eon, Mr. Ed Oline, of this city,
who is sick at his home, was thought
to be better this (Saturday) morning.
i little one if
:lie family how
lovingly the parents plan
together for its future well-
fare. They sometimes even forecast its
education and career. Does this seem
too early to anticipate while the child is
yet unborn? It isn't. The child's des
tiny has already been partly mapped out
by Nature according lo the disposition
and habits of the parents. The best plan
a mother can make for the future happi
ness of her unborn child is to maintain
her own cheerfulness and health while
her child's undeveloped being is still l
part of hers. Her health at this critical
period is of tremendous consequence to
the little one's whole future existence.
Every prospective mother will find direct
nourishment, comfort and sustaining
ttrength, in Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre
scription. It will maintain her vitality
both bodily and mental; shorten the pen
od of confinement and make labor easy and
almost painless. It imparts strength and
elasticity to the organs concerned in par
turition, invests the mother with recuper
ative energy against an tfter period of
weakness and depression, and aids in the
secretion of healthy nourishment for the
child. It is the unfailing cure ofall " fe
Dear Doctor Yonx "Fnvoritc Prescription, " if
the best medicine to take before confinemenf
ttjat can be found. It proved so with ine. I
uever suffered so little with any of my children
as I did with my last, and she is the healthiest we
have. When I began your treatment I could not
