Expected to Be the
Cary People Making
Officers of Wake County Sunday
School Association are of the opinion
that one of the most interesting and
helpful, as well as one of the most
largely attended, Sunday School meet
ings ever held in the county will be
the annual County Sunday School Con
vention at the Methodist church, Cary,
on Thursday and Friday, August 20
and 21. Programs of the Convention
have been mailed to all pastors and
Sunday School superintendents in the
county, with special invitations to
attend the convention themselves, and
requesting that they try to get all
their Sunday School teachers and of
ficers to attend.
The Convention program includes
addresses and conferences on prac
tically all phases of the modern Sun
day School. In arranging the pro
gram the small Sunday School was
gi\ - en much attention. During the
Convention there will be question and
discusion periods when those present
will have opportunity to get and give
information concerning any Sunday
Representing the North Carolina
Surtday School Association in the
Convention will be Miss Freda Bose,
New Orleans, La., Educational Super
intendent New Orleans Council of Re
ligious Education, Mr. D. W. Sims,
General Superintendent North Caro
lina Sunday School Association. There
will also be on the program a number
of the prominent pastors and Sunday

The officers of the County Associ
ation have announced that again this
yea ra pennant will be presented to
the Sunday School in the county hav
ing present in the convention the larg
est number of representatives, six

to the number of miles traveled. Any
Sunday school in the county is eligi

cept the Sunday School with which
the convention is ..held and others
within one mile of the convention
church. It is expected that there will
be much friendly competition among
the Sunday Schools for the pennant.

THE ZEBULON RECORD
Stray Bullet Came
Near Doing Damage
Friday night about 10:30 o’clock a
stray bullet from a pistol or rifle
found its way to the front porch of
Mr. G. B. Brantley with some force,
but not enough to embed itself in the
framing of the porch. It is thought
it had about spent it force, and as it
hit the framing of the side of the
porch it fell to the floor.
Mrs. Brantley had only a few mo
ments before been sitting on the
| porch almost in the ‘rack of the but
i let. Had she been‘on the porch at
j that time she might have been hit.
; Mrs. Brantley has the bullet in her
| possesion, and it is hoped that some
way can be found that will prove the
owner of the fire-arms that are shoot
| ing around in such a careless manner.
There has been several pistol shots
| recently around the town about 9 or
10 o’clock in the evening. It is thought
j that some young boys have in their
i possion a pistol* or pistols, and the
i firing is more for fun than anything
| else. However, this a serious matter
I and the party or parties, whether
! boys or men, should be apprehended
and given full justice. Keep your eye
open and report matters of this kind
to the police department.

Thousands of Klans

Pennsylvania Led in
•Number at Big
Guessing and estimating how many
thousands and tens of thousands of
Klansmen and Klanswomen were in
the monster Ku-Klux Klan parade
beginning at Washington last Satur
day, promptly at 3 o’clock in the after
noon and lasting into the night with
nearly four hours of marching was a
popular sport, but how many in all
there were will have to go down into
history as guess work unless the Klan
itself has some enumeration arrange
ment of its own. With 50,000 as a
minimum the part de, there were
estimates up to 75,000 and 100,000,
while some estimated it at 150,000,
other guesses being that there were
more than that number.
The parade converted Pennsylvania
Avenue into the likness of an Arabian
That there were around 150,000 of
the members of the hooded order all
told, it is said by many, and there was
evidence that there were many Klans
men who did not march. Information
the great mass of people that lined
from a Klan source was that among
the line of parade there were some
50,00 Klansmen in citizen’s clothes
with instructions to quickly put an
end to any b t of disorder that might
show its head. But if there were any
who contemplated disorderly con
duct it was not to be seen, the fact
being that no more orderly parade
and no more orderly crowd to view a
parade has ever been seen in Washing

Declares State Needs
no More Judges but
Good Advice to the

“There is nothing the matter with

| Albion Dunn, of Greenville, Monday
in a brief charge to the Wake county
grand jury at the opening of the

“Judicial reformers should go slow

he declared. “All we need are judges
who will enforce the rules as they

bar that while he presided court will
begin early and continue unt 1 th
work of the day is done.
Judge Dunn declared that it was
unwise to accept the pet hobbies of
any sentimentalist about the courts.
He said that North Carolina does not
need any more judges, and that if
ihe litigants and lawyers would co
operate the business of the courts
could be dispatched by the present
I judges. He pointed out that business

did not begin work until 9:30 o’clock,
took two hours off for lunch and
stopped work at 5 o’clock.
“The old short day suited the day

clared, “but it is not suited to the
He cautioned the grand jurors to
. be careful about the evidence of men
| who come to them wispering but are
j unwilling to have their names used.
. Judge Dunn declared that such evi
i dence was usually actuated by malice.
| He declared that if men had any evi

, do was to swear out a warrant.
He declared that his court would
not appreciate or tolerate any in
formation in behalf of or against a
defend: nt outside of court and that
j any information about defendants
1 must be given in open court where it
could be answered.
Judge Dunn reminded the jurors
that twelve votes in the grand jury
are necessary in order to return a
true bill and that if twelve votes
were not secured the bill should be
returned as not a true bill.

These fairs will be educational and
I will serve as a medium for sh nving
. and displaying some of the results of
i j our year’s work. They will also give
th t people of these districts r.n oppor
tunity to compare the r seeds, breeds,
. methods, and some of the results of
. their efforts, with other people in the
, district*. They cannot b rl a success
without an abundance of exhibits,
however, and should receive the sup
port of the leading farmers and farm
[ women throughout the county. If
properly conducted and supported. I
a.n sure that they will prove to he
worthwhile institutions and will do
much to a d in the development of
The prizes will be small but they
. should be incidental or secondary to
, those who are competing. Teaching
■ and learning how to improve or pro
! duce a better product should l>" the
; objective of every exhibitor and is far
j more worthy than simply winning a
prize for the prize's sake. The prize
; is soon gone or forgotten, but the
| idea or object lesson that may be
j gained from a First Prize product can
1 be utilized for years to come.
The exhibits at these fairs should
! include somt of the best products of
| the farm, orchard, garden, and home,
that can be produced ill Wake county,
j The larger the number of exhibits,
l the better. We can then have an op
portunity to compare ar.d learn the
I difference between good and poor
'! specimens of the same product and
' learn how and why one excells the
other. This information is often very
valuable and should help to induce the
defeated exhibitor to use better ..;'*ds
or breeds, or to adopt better methods
and make a greater effort to improve
and produce u better product. It is
hoped that much friendly competition
and rivalry can be developed between
now and the time the fairs are held
awl that exhibits w 11 be much better
and larger than ever before. Exhi
bit something, it matters not how
large nor how small. It will help the
