DANBURY REPORTER/ VOLUME XL. PAUL DAVIS 1 NERVE Captures Negro Wanted For Stealing Money At Germanton. ROAD WORK TO START Contractor Making Preliminary Arrangements Other News Items From Walnut Cove. 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 week. 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, observing: "You look like the negro who Stole some money at German ton." "No, sir, boss. I ain't de man." "You keep your seat." "Alister, I'm coming out o' here." "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. King High School Honor • Roll.
