Walnut Cove, Nov. 11.—Mr.
J. G. Plott, of Statesville, who
has been awarded the contract
to build 15 miles of sand-clay
roads in Sauratown township, is
here to make preliminary ar
rangements for beginning work
next week. Mr. Plott will have
one or more camps installed this
The Bank of Stokes County
at Walnut Cove was examined
last week by a committee com
posed of Messrs. W. J. Byerly,
of Mt. Airy; and N. E. Pepper,
of Danbury. The Bank was
found to be in excellent shape,
with loans weil secured, and
\ an ample cash reserve, suf
ficient to meet any demands.
These examinations of the Bank
of Stokes County are regularly
made several times a year, as a
safeguard to the depositors and
stockholdefs. The Danbury Bank
was also examined recently. The
Bank of Stokes County has more
than $200,000 deposits, and a
cash reserve of $60,000 or about
33 1-3 per cent., which showing
probably is as good as any bank
in the State. The legal require
ment is only 15 per cent.
Messrs. W. G. Dodson and J.
W. Whitten have returned from
Tennessee and Virginia with a
big bunch of stock, including
mules and horsep, and invite
all in need of driving or working
stock, or good saddle horses, to
call and see them.
Mr. Abe D. Jones, the bright
young son of Dr. A. G. Jones, of
Walnut Cove, has recently be-
come citv editor of the Greens
boro Record, severing his con
nection with the Wilmington
Star. Mr. Jones is destined to
bo one of the State's most dis
tinguished journalists.
fhiul W. Davis is good for
other things besides selling ticketa
and looking after freight ship
ments at the Southern Railway
station. If reports are true, he
carries nerve with him. The
other evening a big buck darkey
walked into the depot and asked
for a ticket to a distant station.
Paul verg p jlitely asked the
visitor to take a scat over behind
his railings, which the darkey
wonderingly diJ, being unaccus
tomed to such marked courtesies.
Paul went on nonchalantly with
his work at the table. Finally
the darkey began to twist and
squirm impatiently in his seat,
and started to rise, when the
agent insisted with a peculiar
accent that he keep his seat,
"You look like the negro who
Stole some money at German
"No, sir, boss. I ain't de

"Alister, I'm coming out o'
"If you do you see this?"
Here Paul exhihited a pair of
sealing instruments which the
negro thought must he a new
kind of shooting iron, and there
fore very dangerous. His hair
began to straighten out and his
eyes to bulge. But Paul sat
looking very important and de
termined, until after awhile Jim
Matthews came in, and together
the depot agent and the sawmill
man tied the big darkey tight
and fast and sent him off to jail.
Paul's bluff had worked like a
charm. Without even a pocket
knife he effected the arrast of
the darkey whose name was
Rufe Lash, and who had stolen
$112.00 from his mother at Ger
manton. All but a dollar or two
of the money was found in the
negro's pockets.
Mr. W. M. Flynt of High
Point was here a few days ago
with a view of locating, but
could not secure a dwelling.
Build more houses.
Walnut Cove continues to
draw more citizens. Mr. Sam
East of Danbury expects to move
here soon and conduct a retail
mercantile business.
