4Drmond Given Biggest Funeral
in History of Richmond County
I Rockingham. Aug. 17.—The tre
mendous and far-reaching interest in
the homicide of last Saturday where
in W. B. Cole, wealthy textile raanu
• facturer. shot and killed W. W.
(Bill) Ormond, son of n Methodist
minister, as he sat quietly in his
Ford roadster, unarmed was mani
fested here this afternoon by the at
" tendance at the funeral of the slain
man. It was held nt 4 o'clock from
the Methodist church, of which his
father. Rev. A. L. Ormond, had been
pastor for four years.
The stores and places of business i
of the city were closed for nn hour. |
from 4 to 5 o'clock, during the time j
of the funeral out of respect to the !
dead young man and his parents.
Scores' of Friends Present-
Scores of friends from adjacent
towns, among them President E. C.
Brooks, of State college, were here.
The parents of the young man wished
to have a simple service in a privnte
home, but bowed to the insistence of
friends that it be bed in the Meth
odist church. However, Rev Mr.
Ormond requested that no hymns be
sung, and no eulogy be uttered. He
limply wished to have his dead put
tway as quietly as passible.
But despite this, the funeral be
'ame the largest attended of any
l>rivate citizen ever held in Richmond

Review of Tragedy.
The correspondent for this paper
n his previous articles and now has
nd is endeavoring to give a colorless
;ory of the events that happened on
le day of the tragic homicide, and
npe. But since the interest in the
ttire affair is so widespread, the
riter feels it but fair to give here a
ief summary of those events in the
ist of which the general public
tally appears to be familiar. And
s following is not given with any
tempt to prejudice either for or
ainst either ofthe two principals.
One baric fact is locally conceded
have existed, that Bill Ormond had
> wordly goods and that he nnd
iss Elizabeth Cole, aged 24, and a
ilemlid young daughter of W. B.
ole, had been going together for
any months, and were generally
ipposed to be in love with each
her. Their going together was an
reepted town fact. But it appears
lat in more recent months Mr.
ole had objected to young Ormond

keeping company with his daughter.
Sometime last winter, rumor has
it, Mr. Cole forbade Ormond going 1
with her. Ormond moved to Raleigh
last September, to State college.
During the winter considerable feel

and it is said that letters of physical
violence had been exchanged between
them. Finally, along about last April
or May. Mr. Cole in company, with
his attorney, Fred W. Uynnin, are
said to have gone to Raleigh to see
Ormond but. found that he was in
i Nashville, nt his father's home. Mr.
j Bynum thereupon is said to have
gone alone to Nashville, and to have
I submitted to Bill Ormond and to his
| father. Rev. A. L. Ormond, a paper
wherein Ormond agreed to re
linquish his friendship for Miss Cole
and agreed not to communicate
further with her, make any remarks
(if any had been made) about her,
nnd to stay clear of the Cole family.
Upon his signing this agreement, Mr.
Bynum is said to have innprked to
Rev. Mr. Ormond that “this now
ends the mntter, everything is set
tled nnd there is nothing more to it,”
Friends to Defense-
The friends of Ormond insist that
since that time he has not communi
cated in any way with the Cole
family, has stuck steadfastly to his
job in Raleigh and had been to
Rockingham but twice, anee on -Tilly
4 when the Cole family were in the
mountains, and again cn last Satur
day when he brought his younger
brother Allison, tq visit n young
lady. He and his brother left Raleigh
Saturday morning, in hip Ford
roadster, getting to • Rockingham
about 1:40 o'clock. His pother >vcnt
calling while he went <n)t to Ledbet
ter's pond with some friends. Re
turning to town about 5 o'clock he
at 5:10 o'clock phoned Miss Laura
I’aggc Steele and made a date to cntl
in a few minutes. He then got in his
car. parked in front of the Page
gnrnge against the curb headed east,
and (50 feet east of the Manufactur
ers building, and was seated in his
car smoking when Mr. Cole, who was
on the Manufacturers' buikling steps,
saw him. Immediately . Mr. Cole
walked eastward until he reached the
car. and then getting abreast of
Ormond at the car door began tiring.
Three bullets took effect nnd Ormond
expired in a few moments. Mr. Cole
then quietly retraced his stops to his
office. Apparently no words were
spoken, and no weapon of any de
scription, it is said, was found upon
Ormond or in his enr.
So much for the events, in so far
as the public knows, that led up to
the homicide. On the other hand,
friends of Mr. Cole assert that he is
too conservative and level headed a
citizen ever to act hastily or lll
thoughtedly. No one ascribes any
idea of temporary insanity or Harry
K. Thaw derangement. He bears the
highest reputation both as a busi
ness man nnd churchman; his char
acter w above reproach, and he Ims
an intellect of the keenest sort. His
wonderful business success would in
dicate as much. Friends further as
sert that he is obliged to have had
good cause for his action, nnd that it
will be developed in dir* time.

MORE THAN OLD
Rome Mission Task a Great One.
, Church Leader Says.
Montreal, Aug. 17.—“ The home
mission task of the church will not
be accomplished with boxes of old
clothes and children’s day offer
ings.” said Rev. Roy Smith, one of
the home mission evangelists of the
Southern Presbyterian church, in an
address before the home mission
conference at Montreat.
“We are thankful for these boxes,"
he said further, "and we need more
■ of them, but these alone will not solve
mission problem will be solved. We
church will pray more, this mountain
ipixsiion problem will be solved. We
need more money, more preachers,
more buildings, and more teachers,
and three will be provided 1 if we will
pray more anil become better ac
quainted with the needs of the work.
The great rank and file of our people
are not informed regarding the
needs of home missions. The time of
illiterate leaders in home mission
work is in tile past; the generation
now growing up will demand in
telligent, educated leadership. It is
impressive and oppressive to know
that the church has been at work so
long in Virginia and in North Caro
lina. and other of the older states,
and yet the field is hardly touched.
Our people need more home mission
literature to help them to know
just what home mission workers
have accomplished Under the handi
cap under which they have labored.
We can find plenty of literature
about foreign missions and the lives
of foreign missionaries, but we rare
ly find a published account of the
life of a home mission worker.”
Speaking on the same subject,
Rev. Walter Keys, another home
mission evangelist, declared the moun
tain people are the best people of
America, and that what they need is
sympathetic interest; not condescen
•ion, but companion ship. Mountain

But What of Christ?
J-ast Sunday, ip a sermon which lie
knew would be given wide publicity,
the Bev. A. E. Rapp, D. D.. pastor
of a Baptist church in Jersey City,
opened with this: "God is not inter
ested in failures, nor is He pleased
when any of His creatures are sick.
He is interested in men and women
who know how to take advantage of
life and make the best of it, and who,
in the ordinary term of our daily
talk, are called ‘a success'." But
that was merely an opener. After
giving a long list of the Wanamakers,
Editions and Conwells, who had suc
ceeded and done good wilti the pro
ceeds, he admonished his hearers:
"What these and others have done,
you and ail of yours can do, and as a
matter of fact, should do, for only
then are we pleasing to God.”
That, we believe, is as astonishing
a description of Christianity, as alarm
ing a map of the way to everlasting
happiness, as could well be conceived.
"God is not interested in failures 1”
But what about Christ? How much
of a success was t'.ie Magdalene? And
in what esteem did the Master hold
the wealth of a certain young rich
man, the wealth which in Dr. Rapp’s
eyes would be the definition of suc
cess but which He regarded only as
something tot be got rid of? What
of that congress of sorrow, that par
liament of poverty, to which Christ
ministered so often?
What of the twisted bodies He made
straight? What about the ears He
unstopped, the hungry multitudes He
fed, and the eyes from which He
struck the veils? In everything He
did, by all with whom He consorted.
He made it manifest beyond dispute
that He had come to reveal the God
of all men, of the poor, the halt and
the blind as well as those more
At this “success" with which Dr.
Rapp is so concerned, Christ looked
always with distrust. His psychol
ogy, which never erred, taught Him
how easy it was for the sons of men
to overvalue "success," exactly as Dr.
Rapp overvalues it. Dr. Rapp is
perhaps forgetful of what Christ did
teach, or perchance much reading of

“Your float doesn’t know the difference between gas and oil. For all you
know you may have a quart or two of unburnt gas in that crank case. High
readings on the oil gauge don’t mean anything either. You’ll get a high

“It isn’t just pressure you need in an oil system—it’s floods of clean, cool
