ROBT.C COLEMAN ARRESTED.
Man Who Is Charted With Robbing
Postoffices At Walnut Cove and
Kerneraville Now In Greensboro
What promises to be a very in- 1
teresting case will be brought up
in the Federal Court at Greens
boro next June, when Robert C.
Coleman, alias James Harring
ton, alias Bradley, alias Mait
land, will be given a hearing on
the charge of robbing several
As far as local interest is con
cerned, the story begins at Wal
nut Cove in the month of Sep
tember of last year, when the
postoffice at that place was rob
bed. Nothing was secured
from the government, but some
spectacles and gold rings were
taken from the store in which
the postoffice is located.
The following night the post
office at Kernesville was entered
and about $1,300 in stamps and
cash, principally in stamps, was
secured, and a few nights after
wards, the postoffice at Mocks
ville was broken into and a sack j
of pennies secured, aggregating
two or three dollars. The of
ficers were in hot pursuit at
Kernesville and as a matter of j
fact a battle ensued between the j
robbers and the officers and the'
robbers were forced to flee, and
they left part of their booty be
hind In a thicket. The rings
and spectacles taken from the
postoffice at Walnut Cove were
! found in a satchel in the thicket.
Coleman was arrested in Cin
cinnatti on January 15th by a
detective and was brought to
Greensboro last Wednesday to

Mr. W. H. Flinchum, of Pied
mont Springs, caught another
large gray fox in a steel trap
Friday night. The trap broke
one of the animal's legs just
above its foot and the wounded
member had to be amputated.
Reynard is confined in a cage
and appears to be getting on all
right. This is the third fox
Mr. Flinchum has caught dur
ing the past year. He is un
doubtedly the shrewdest trapper
in these parts. Even reynard
with all his cunningness, is ap
jparently easily taken in. No
j one knows the methods used by
i Mr. Flinchum in trapping the
j wily animals.
I LIFE SAVED AT DEATH'S
"I never felt so near my
grave," writes W. R. Patter
son, of Wilmington, Tex., as
when a frightful cough and lung
trouble pulled me down to 100
pounds, in spite of doctor's
treatment for two years. My
father, mother and two sisters
died of consumption, and that I
am alive today is due solely to
Dr. King's New Discovery,
which completely cured me.

ings Being Added to the Surplus—
Old Officers Re-elected.
The annual meeting of the
stockholders of the Bank of
Stokes County was held at the
Walnut Cove bank last Thursday,
January 26. The meeting was
one of the most interesting and
pleasurable gatherings the Bank
has yet held. The following
stockholders and directors were
present: J. H. Prather and W.
J. Byerljs of Mt. Airy; M. T.

W. G. Slate, of Mizpah; and D.
S. Watkins, of Walnut Cove, were
unable to be present, but were
represented by proxy.
The reports of the President,
Cashiers and the Examining
Committees showed the bank to
be in first-class A 1 condition.
The securities were good, the
cash reserve ample and strong,
and the Bank standing on its own
footing, not having lost a dollar,
| and having earned a nice surplus
| for the past year.
Talks were made by W. J.
Byerly, M. T. Chilton aad others,
looking to the future good of the
Bank. A resolution was passed
unanimously to practice still
more rigid conservatism in the
I policy of the institution, to re
! quire still stronger securities.
| Finance committees were elected
| for both branches of the Bank,
whose business is to investigate
titles and examine loans and se-
I curities carefully.
During the year new quarters
i were built for both branches of
the Bank—at Danbury and at
| Walnut Cove—affording facilities
I equal to many banks of large
cities, each house being a credit

The usual dividend of 12 per
cent, was declared, the remain
der of the year's earnings being
, added to the surplus fund, which
i now equals about one-fourth of
. the capital of the bank, and is a
| strong and increasing bulwark
I for the bank's capital. It is only
a question of a very short time
until the surplus will be as large
as the capital.
After the meeting the company
adjourned to Hotel Dodson,
where a good dinner awaited,
and where several hours were
.spent in social converse and en
