pletely as possible, to their school
teachers, is deplored by Supt. s. L-
Sheep, the city school system. Mr.

Pareuts nowadays are permitting
too many outside interests to dis
tract the mind of the child from his

that when the child, outside of

the more difficult for him to concen

If the parents of the city wish

Lexington Shocked By Twin City
Lexington friends of Miss Virginia
.Tonkins, who for the past four years
has made her home here much of the
time while serving as superintendent
of elementary Sunday school training
for the Western North Carolina
Methodist conference, were greatly
shocked this morning when they read
in the daily press a story from
Winston-Salem in which sdo and
another Sunday school worker are
involved. During her residence here
Miss Jenkins has made many friends
and has been held in the highest es
teem since coming to this city. The
story has added interest because
Lexington has for a number of years
been at the home office of the Con
ference Sunday school training or
ganization. which has worked so ef
fectively throughout the western half
of the. State.
Miss Jenkins and M. W. Brabham,
of Knoxville. Tenn.. also a Sunday
school training worker, were placed
under arrest in a room at a Win
ston-Salem hotel at two o'clock yes
terday morning according to the
Winston-Salem Journal of this morn
ing. They furnished bonds of SIOO for
appearance in police court today to
answer a charge of violating the
hotel law. Mr. Brabham issued a
statement it >vas stated, in which lie
fervently disavowed any wrongful
act or intent, declaring that he had
gone to Miss Jenkins' room when she
became ill to render aid. Other
workers had rooms nearby, it was
stated. Miss Jenkins is from Salis
bury, where she taught for a number
of years in the city schools.
The Winston-Salem paper stated
that both flic accused persons had
checked out at the hotel yesterday
and did not appear on the program
at the Sunday school training class.
Hotel employes are said to have
called the officers.

Colonel Springs already has agreed to
buy the property.
The Duke estate embraces seventeen
acres of land in Myers Park, the resi

premises nre estimated to be worth
half a million dollars or more.
The site originally was the home
of the late Z. V. Taylor, former presi

Company, who had erected there a
handsome residence. When Mr. Duke
bought the site from Mr. Taylor, he
preserved only a part of the structure
of the Taylor home and constructed
on the site the present mansion.
Colonel Springs, one of the multi
millionaire textile inngnates of the
South, is known to have been consid
ering for several years the purchase
or construction of a residence in
Myers Bark. The Duke Mansion has
been noted as a showplace about Char

residence, but for the beauty of the
grounds which constitute one of the
beauty spots of tills state. One of
the features of the Duke estate is
the fountain which shoots a stream

Wishy-washy scrap either. When they
