III III SESSION
Tried to Sell the Machine ia This
City Several Days Ago. Caught
at Rocky Mount.
Rocky Mount, May 8. The arrest on
Sunday afternoon of two neatly dressed (
and genteel young men upon a telegram
from Sheriff Coleman, of Columbia, ' S
C. , ' for alleged connection with the.
securing -of an automobile and' 'making
away with the same, has caused more
than passing comment in this city since
the arrest On Sunday afternoon the
young men, one of them who gives his
name as Williams, and the other as W.
W. Wanamaker,; arrived in the city
from Tarboro driving an E. M. P. .car,
of SO horse power roadster type.' .They
went to a garage and there left the car
and it happened that tha proprietor of
the business remembered having receiv
ed a notice relative u two such, young
men and asking that they be . arrested.
He communicated With the police de
partment, and an officer was on his way
to the garage when the telegram .from
the Columbia sheriff was received He
immediately identified the young men
as those wanted and they were arrested
and locked up.'
It appears from what has recently
been learned that these two young men
have been in this Section of the State
for a "Week or more and that they have
visited New Bern, Goldaboro,, Green
vHle, 'Washington and Tarbot o, and thai
all of the time the Columbia cfficeie
have been making a vain ffjrt to get
in touch with them and have them ar
rested, there havng been letters' and
telegsams galore In an effort to 'secure
their detenti in.
" Later. Lmt night the young man
Williams was turned lose, after it wis
proven to the satisfaction pf the officers
here that he had no part ..whatever in
the matter, save having made the trip
with Wanamaker, who sometimes, sari
the , telegram states, goes under the
name of W, E Webb, The young man
now under arrest made an effort yes
terday afternoon to sell the car and he
also tried to put thgough a trade propo
ition with a prominent physician. He
exptflins his arrest in that he purchased
a ear in Columbia, making a part pay
ment and that he has 80 'days within
which to pay the balance," and that as
yet the time has hot elapsed. He re
fuses to return without . requisition pa
pers and furhis reason be may be de
tained in, theJocal lock-up several days

Tennysun's famous poem "Crossing
the Bar" was written, said bis son.
In the poet's elghty-Orst year, "on a
day In October when we came from
Aldworth to - Farrlngford. ' Before

meaning of the bar In bis mind, and
after dinner be showed me the poem
written out That Is the crown of
your life's work,' " said his son, who
was the flint man arter tne poet to
reed "Crossing the Bar" and who
passed the first criticism upon It in
such fitting and generous language.
"It came In a moment" said the poet
and be explained the pilot as the Di

a further sum, according to rank, or

he would dwell only very briefly on the

questions ever broughtiefore .the peo
ple or t his section or ttje state and that
they should lose noj opportunity to
grasp it, That, inv the ij yejirB to come
thjs road ' would, connect with other
roads, and ; that it . would eventually

had perived from them. That before

trade now carried on in that county
went elsewhere, and that the citizens
lost out. He urged that the Central
Highway be built with care so that it
would last for, many years. He then
(poke of the increase in the value of

The First Comedy.
The first recorded comedy was played
at Athens B. C. 678, when Susarlon
and Dolon, the earliest traveling ac
tors, performed a comedy of Susurlon's
comiosltlou on a movable stage mount
ed upon four wheels. Tbe new form
of piny was so successful that the ac
tors were rewarded by tbe grateful
populace witb a cask of wlue aud a
basket of figs. Susarlon belonged to
Megarls, a state of ancient' Greece,
whose Inhabitants were celebrated for
their coarse humor and who. In their
vlllnces during: tbe evenings, were
wont to hold what they called a conius,
really a revel, In which impromptu act
ing, coupled with buffoonery, played a
considerable part. From this word we
have our comedy.
Like the plantain, which the Indiana
called "the white man's foot" because
It sprang up wherever the whites pen

New Zealand the Maoris call it "the

Ashley Home Elected Chairman.
State House Will Cost
Quarter of Million.
Raleigh May 10th. The state build
ing commission, which ie to have charge
of the erection of the $250,000 admin
istration building, was organized by
unanimous selections of Col. - Ashley
! Horne, of Clayton, as chairman, and
William E. Springer, of Wilmington,
as secretary. The meeting was called
to order by Colonel Home, who acted
as temporary chairman. A number of
architects were in the city, but 'as the
commission was not ready to discuss
plans they had to content themselves
with cooling their heels in the corridors.
Every member of the commission was
present, they being :Col. Ashley Horne,
of Clayton; Gen. Julian S. Carr, of
Durham; J. Elwood Cox, of EighPoint;
W. L. Parsons, of Rockingham; A. S.
Raacoe, of Windsor: J. A. Long, of
Roxboro; and William E. Springer, of
Wilmin gton. The commission visited
and inspected all the pussible sites fac
ing on the capitol square, but no decision
of a location was announced. In fact,
the attitude of the commission is to
work only with such haste as is consist
ent with careful planning. One of the
most favorably spoken of sites is on
the western side of the c&pitol, in the
block with the Olivia Raney libary.
It is practically certain the building will
face on the capitol square.
