IN AND ABOUT THE CITY
ONLY SIX DEATHS IN
CONCORD IN AUGUST
Heart Trouble Ouised Most of Them.
—-Fifteen Blrtbs Reported by Three
. Only six deaths were reported in*
Concord during August, a new low
record for the present year, according
to figures compiled by W. M. Sher
rill, registrar of vital statistics for
the city, who pointed out in his re
port, however, that several other
deaths, unofficially reported, were not
included in his total.
Os th* six deaths reported, a ma
jority were caused by heart trouble,
the figures show. Only one stillborn
babe was reported during the month.
Twenty-seven births were reported
during the month to Mr. Sherrill and
of this total fifteen were for August.
It was pointed out in the report that
only three physicians and two mid
wives had reported births to Mr. Sher
rill and the total undoubtedly would
have been larger had all of the phy
sicians in the city submitted their
Birth statistics reported for July
showed almost even break between
boy and girl babies and the same holds
true for August. Os the twenty
seven babies reported fourteen were
Only one illegitimate child was born
in the city during the month, accord
ing to the report, the mother of this
child being a colored woman.
Five of the twehty-seven babies re
ported were colored and one colored
persons was included in deaths.
Colonel Bingham Eighty-seven.
The following from Sunday’s issue
of The Asheville Times will he of
interest to the many friend**.of Col.
Bingham in thi* section :
‘ The 87th birthday anniversary of
Col. Robert Bingham was celebrated
Saturday afternoon at the home on
Birmingham Heights of his daughter.
Mrs. R. T. Grinnan. with his other
daughter. Mrs. S. Reid McKee, also
receiving. Many friends of the colo
nel had been invited to call and many
expressions of the esteem in which he
is held in the community were offered.
For many years Colonel Bingham has
been the leading spirit in the mili
tary school which takes his name. A
large number of out-of-town friends
were among the invited guests.
“Neither his son. Judge Robert
Worth Bingham, nor any of his fam
ily. from Louisville. Ivy., were pres
ent. though Judge Bingham had hoped
to be here. He is much improved
from a recent operation for appendi
citis and is at Upper Saranac. N. Y.
“A most attractive cake, about 30
inches in diameter, was sent to Colo
nel Bingham by his son. Judge Bing
ham. Mrs. Auspen Sherman, of New
York City, served at the punch tabic,
being assisted by Miss Marjorie IVar
son. Misses Martha and Sadie Temple
McKee, and later two grand daughters
of Colonel Bingham.
“T r ne cake was handsomely iced,
ami on the top was a cornucopia
which was filled with various fruit
shapes made of candy.**
Jazz Music Assailed.
The woman’s bureau of the Wash
ington police department would like
to ban jazz music. It thinks the
syncopated strains demoralizing to the
city’s young people. Lieut. Mina
Yan Winkle finds that the same law
.enacted by Congress prohibiting teach
ing of disrespect to the Bible in the
district schools also contains a clause
forbidding “music of an indecent char-,
acter.’’ She wants this ban extended
to cover jazz.
“Jazz puts thoughts in the minds
of listeners that shouldn’t be* there.”
avers Mrs. Yan Winkle. *1 refer
to that tom-tommy sort of Oriental
music that makes men forget home
and babies. Modern jazz has Orien?
tal music beat for suggestiveness and
indecency. Desert natives would be
shocked to see the way our boys and
girls hug each other and vibrate to
the tune of jazz.”
Sergeant Rhoda Milliken, of the
same bureau, goes a step farther.
She says “any music played on a sax- •
aphone is immoral.”
As a result the j>o!iee have been,
instructed to train their ears to de
tect “indecent music.” But Detective
Tulley rises to defend jazz. “Persons
with evil thought may take the l wrong
view of an emotional piece, but why
blame tiie music?” lie queries.
The controversy lias led C. K.
Grant, Portsmouth, Va.. pipe organ
builder, to challenge the capital po
licewomen to submit a saxaphone
demonstration to a “tried and true”
jury to see if the munic is degrad
ing. “It is not the tone quality
which is degrading.” he asserts, “but
the slovenly interpretation of feeling
which the instrument is made to
bring out.” >■

A suggestion relative to settling the
dispute between the county and the
town of Mt. Pleasant about she cost

September meeting at the court house j

Mt. Pleasant will pay $20,000 within

This suggestion is a compromise one.

Interesting Meeting at Methodist
The special meeting continues at the
Methodist Protestant Church with
much interest. Rev. Mr. Bethea is
at his best these evenings and the con
gregation is exceptionally attentive
and responsive. Last night the serv
ice was good, with delightful singing j
and visible results of the efforts put ]
forth in the name of the Master. A j
good number both of the youngdr and
• the older ones are pledging their lives;
to the church and to Christ.
A feature of the work this week
that is proving of much value is the
daily Bible reading. Each evening
a collection is taken of the number
of chapters which have been read
since the previous meeting. Hun
dreds of Bible chapters have been read
by practically every person who comes j
to the services. It is hoped that;
the entire book may be read before
the campaign closes or its equal iium-!
ber of chapters. The meeting will
continue some days yet with services
at 7 :30 each evening.

J here and will be placed on the lawn
immediately. This will add greatly
to the attractiveness and efficiency of
the local church.

When you step out to buy a tire—and much as we hate to do it, it’s got to be
done every once in awhile—what do you want?
Os course, you’d like to rub a lamp, or make a wish, or have some good fairy
appear, and slip a nice new tire on the rim for nothing. •
But, unfortunately, these things only happen in our dreams.
What you want is a tire that will get you back on the road again and keep
you going for a long, long* time.
So, as long as you’ve got to buy a tire, you want something good and you
want it at the right price.
The next time you are up against the sad necessity of buying a tire—call us
up and we’ll sell you a Goodyear and make you glad to buy it.
