The victim is a man who has just

feared that there will be a spread
of the disease. '
The Covered Bridge.
Complaints are made every now

Care For Confederate Graves.
Auditor Ayer is in receipt of a
lette :! from the Chief of the Re
cord office, General Marcus A.
Wright, requesting the names of
the Confederate cemeteries in the
State and the number of j veterans
buried in them.
Ai ditor Ayer hasn't the infor
mation and he desires that those
persons who can give the facts
desired by the War Record Office,
write him at once. . .
While General Wright did not
state his object in requesting the
infoi mation, it is believed that he
is fo lowing up President McKin

he declared that the time had come
when the government should care

Young Lady's Awful Fate at High

?A,horrible accident occurred at
High Point yesterday shortly, af

A correspondent of the Char

Miss Eleanor Stanback, daugh-
of Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Stanbach,
of Trinity, was struck, and instant

it was backing in the yard, getting

Miss Stanback, in company with
two young lady " friends, was go

when a freight train, north-bound,
came in sight. The young ladies,
at the sight of the freight , train
stepped to the left. This put
Miss Stanback on tho Asheboro
track. The moving cars were
close behind her and many people
saw her danger, but the noise of
the moving trains prevented her
hearing ihe shouts of alarm. She

flat car, knocked forward and one
of the trucks passed over her head

litis understood that the new
superintendent will give Mr. F.
B. Arandell, formerly' of Salis
bury, a place. In speaking of
this the Raleigh Post says:
: Capt. Day stated that he would
tender the next appointment to
Mr. B. Arendell, of this city.
It is understood that Capt. Day
will appoint Mr. Arendell superin
tendent and warden of the central
prison in this city. Capt. Day's
determination to select Mr.' Aren
dell wras all unknown to that gen
tleman, and of course a great sur
prise to him. The fact that he
was thus selected is a tribute to
his ability and fitness to manage
such a large institution. Certainly
Captain Day could make no better
selection if he should search the
Mrs. Verble's Will. .
