''In the fifth inning Caldwell
dropped out and put Fisher in the
box, and it was a "holy caution"
how the boys snapped at his curves.
Fisher was in excellent trim and
did some pretty work.
Weddington scored the single
run for Huntersville in the third
Will Gibson made two of the
runs for Concord, one in the third
and one in the sixth innings. Ga
rah Caldwell scored in the third in
ning, at the same time bringing
Gibson in on a safe hit.
The game was interesting
throughout and with the exception
of a partial umpire, Vic Hunter, of
Huntersville, the boys say they
never enjoyed a better game.

D. W. Fuller, of Canojoharie, N.
Y., says that he always keeps Dr.
KiLg's New Discovery in the house
and his family has always found the
very best results follow its use ;
that he would not be without it, if
procurable. G. A. Dykeman, Drug
gist, Catskill, N. Y., says that Dr.
King's New Discovery is undoubt
edly the best cough remedy ; that
he has used it in his family for eight
years, and it has never failed to do
all that is claimed for it. Why not
try a remedy so long tried and
tested. Trial bottles free at Fet

Mr. Walter llioiiipson tJoes to Con
cord. Mr, Walter R Thompson, who
has been principal of the States
ville graded school for the past two
years, and who had been re-elected
for another term, has decided to go
to Concord, the graded school
board, at his request, having re
leased him. Mr. Thompson will
take a position with his brother,
Prof. Holland Thompson, in a
school at Concord, the fall term of
which begins on the 31st.
Mr. Thompson is an excellent
young man and a competent
teacher, and the graded school
board gave him up with regret. We
hope he will do well in Concord
and feel sure that he will. His
brother taught there last year and
had an excellent school. States
