Royal Bridegrooms Who Mamed Com
moners-
London, April 22.—1 f the Prince of
Wales were to choose for his wife a
lady outside the circle of royalty, he
will be able to quote many excellent pre
cedents for such a choice; for many of
hie royal predecessors have found hap
piness in such unions. In fact, until the
Royal Marriage Act put an oustacie in
, the way of such unorthodox matches.
I English princes were free to give their
: hands where their hearts could go with
them.
When, for example, Edward, the
Black Prince, sought a wife, he turned
his back on the fairest of princesses, to
woo tb* beautiful Joan Woke, a lady
who had no drop of royal -blood in her
veil*, and no ancestor more exalted
I thhn a baron. But in Joan the prince
| found happiness such as po more exalt
ed wife could have; given him; and she
I also gave him a son to perpetuate the
jline of kings.
j Where his eldest brother led the way.
, John of Gaunt was glad to follow, when
ihe went a-woolng Catherine Swynford.
a lady who had no exalted birth to add
jto her beauty and charm. She bore four
• children to her romantic lord; and from
■ her was descended Henry IV., who
) raised the humble Swynford blood to
j the throne of England.
I But the most; unconventional of nl'
royal lovers was undoubtedly Henry
jVni., who in four of his half-dozen
marriages decided to wed where he
Iloved. This he declared when he bestow
ed bis hand upon pretty Anne Boleyn.
And though Anne had a city apprentice,
! Godfrey Bolevn, for great-grandfather.
, Heiiry loved her with a passion no em
peror's daughter had ever inspired.
And yet, in spite of all his passion and
protestations, Anne’s beautiful body was
scarcely cold before the royal Lothario
was vowing love and loyalty at the
altar bf her successor, Jane Seymour, a
la4y who had a plain country knight
for father, and nothing but a pretty face
to commend her to l)is favor.
And Jane had two un-royal
successors in Henry’s fickle heart, to
both of whom he was devoted, for a
time, with equal passion- e .
When James, Duke of York, younger
brother of Charles 11., decided to take
to himself a wife, he chose Anne, daugh
ter of Edward Hyde, Earl of Clarendon,
and granddaughter of a Wiltshire
squire—a young woman of no great
birth and Ittle beauty. From this un
royal union came two 'of England s
queens—Miary 11.. and Anne—to mingle
the rustic squire’s blood with that of
Stuart kings.

NEGRO ASSAUNT OF

i Posses Are Still Scouring
Woods For Him But So
Far He Has Managed To
Escape Those Seeking Him
NINE SUSPECTS
1 are t examined
.Ire r
I Young Woman Not Able To
Identify Any Os Them—
Fear Mob Violence Is Rap
idly Subsiding
(By the Associated Press)
. Carthage. N. C., April 22.—Seareh was
i continued here today for a negro alleged
: to have attacked a young girl near here
■ Monday afternoon. Though there was
considerable interest in the case, the ex
i citement which prevailed yesterday af
ternoon when it was believed the negro
i was surrounded in a patch of woods tmt
■ side the city limits, had for the'most part
subsided. Mob violence was' tio longer
feared, it was stated, in the event of
the negro's capture.
Nine negroes were taken before the
' girl this morning after they had been ar
rested as suspects. She was unable to
identify any of them. Among the men
who were subsequently released, wns
Dock Roberts, who wns believed to have
been the man wanted.
Posses continued their search through
the country today, it was stated in the
office of Sheriff Fry.
Carthage, April 21, —Despite the fact
that armed passes have scoured the coun
tryside in all direction last night and
today, the unknown negro who attempted
criminal assault upon the 16-year-old
white school girl yesterday evening in
broad daylight and in a short distance
from a number of houses is still at large
tonight. Excitement is still at white heat
and the same precautions to prevent
the escape of the assailant will be taken
tonight.
Rumors of a strange negro bearing the
description of the fugitive have come in
from many sections of the county but the
only one that apparently tended to give
any traee of the fleeing negro is from
Parkwood. this county.
It seems to be a eerfuu fy that a young
yellow “negro about 18 or 26 years old. of
heavy built, which corresponds with the
description given by the girl of her as
sailant, spent the night last night at the
home of Ira Marly, a colored man. This
man and his wife were very reticent about
giving information to the officers and both
were taken into custody and lodged in
jail. Later the woman and several other
suspects who had been arrested but prov
ed to be not the man wanted were re
leased. Marly is still in custody and was
given an examination by Solicitor Don
Phillips, of Rockingham, who arrived on
the scene this evening to direct the man
hunt. Gordon Smith, assistant adjutant
general, also is here assisting in the mat
ter.
The crime Is one of the boldest ever
attempted in this section, according to the
authorities. The young girl was on her
way to her home, which is about a mile
from town, from school. Her home is
some distance from the highway and aft
er she had left the roadway going along
t path leading to her home a negro sprang
out of a small building as she passed,
threw a strap around her neck, choking
her so she could not cry out, and drag
ged her into a nearby woods. However,
she put a terrific fight and the noise made
attracted' the attention of two colored
women nearby and they started to the
scene, which caused the man to flee before
he accomplished his purpose, leaving his
cap in his hurry.
The women on being questioned claim
ed not to have seen him. They carried
the young girl to her home, she being well
nigh unconscious, her clothing nearly torn
off and her neck showing evidence of her
terrible ordeal.
She is resting comfortbly today and the
physician called in states that she ap
parently will suffer no permanent ill ef
fect.
Bloodhounds from Raeford were sent
for and put upon the trail about 6 o’clock
yesterday but they were unable to track
the hunted man.
Officers of all nearby towns and coun
ties have been furnished with a descrip
tion of the wanted man and instructed to
take all strange negroes answering the
description into custody and notify
sheriff R. G. Fry, who will bring them in
for identification. The arrest of the right
man is expected hourly.
Raleigh, April 21 • —According to a re
port received here late tonight from

FRONT-VVHEEL DRIVE CAR
FOR CHARLOTTE RACES
I
Not Kntown However, Who Will Pilot
the Car on May 11th.
Charlotte. April 22.—A H’ont-wbccl
drive car—the same vehicle that the late -
Jimmy Murphy expected would re- -
volutionize automobile racing—will be ;
entered 'in the Charlotte Memorial Day i
races here on May 11.
Ths announcement is contained in ,p
message to Osmond L. Barringer, gen- ;
eral manager of the Charlotte Speed- \
way, from Fred Wagner, the vereran ]
stnrter. It' is not announced, however, ,
who wilt drive the ear, although it is ,
known that Tommy Milton is anxious lo |
give it Its baptism of speed.
The car has been tested out thorough- ’
ly on the speedway at Culver City, j
Calif., and is said to be a marvelous
creation. It is a Miller special, and is ,
equipped with a supercharger. It is cor- ;
tain to prove one of the intensely in
teresting features of the racing classic i
here May 11. It will probably become
the “dark horse” of the big event.
The Speedwhy management now do- 1
finitely announces that Earl Cooper.
Tommy Milton. Benny Hill nnd Harry
Hartz, four of the sensational drivers
in the October races—and four of the
World's best—are entered in rue second
Charlotte classic. This quartet alone as
sures racing fans in this neck of the
woods a performance that will be worth
a journey of many miles to see. Added
to these is Cliff Durant, one of the
veterans of the game. Also, Pete De-
Paolo who gave everybody a thrill with
his superb driving and uncanny hurts of
speed last. October, wft again be among
those present. From this it looks as
though some real racing is going to be
handed out to the fans.
