their corn but to feed it to stock. But

after they too had passed on, the nurse
saw the glasses in the carriage. She
assumed that one of the ladies dropped

she handed the glasses to the lady at

the other two ladies must have dropped

That is as far as Mr. Tolson has been

Great Conference Expected In Ral

Raleigh, Feb. 6. North Carolina's

get-together conference at Raleigh
n;xt Tuesday and Wednesday. The
object is to form a combination or an
a'liance of all the forces in the State
working for the betterment of humanity
and socia' conditions generally. It
is felt that much more can be done
if all pull together than if each depart
ment fights single handed. Below are
several of the depar. ments that will
be represented, together with their

The State Board of Health which
is engineering the meeting, sends out
the following matter regarding it:
"The list represents some of the
best thinkers and the biggest men and
women in the State. Any organi
zation backed by such a council of war
bound to move things. Further
more, senator Kooert 1-. uwen, ol
Oklahoma, is scheduled to deliver the
address of the day at the operln
meeting. Senator Owen is best known
as author ot tne famous Uwen bill
for a National Department of Publi
Health, but he is a man big enough to
sr the importance and necessity of
correlating all branches of social ser
"The real significance of the meeting
is shown by the fact that the final
meeting of the conference will be held
in the Houe of Representatives. The
entire General Assembly is expected to
adjourn to attend this meeting.
"Since the intended organization was
announced, hundreds of inquiries have
been made regarding the meetings and
the organization. It is a movement
that deserve and demands the sup
port of every true North Carolinian
interested ia the advancement and
welfare of his State If you hadn't

UNLES THEY DO BASEBALL
APPEARS TO BE DEAD
ISSUE IN KINSTON.
At a meeting of the Kinston Chamber
of Commerce held Wednesday nigh: li
chat city ,the matter of putting a
team in the proposed Eastern Carolina
Baseball Association, was talon up.
That organization failed tc take any
action in the matter and turned it
over tc the athletk associatio i.
The Kinslun Fee hress has the fol
lowing to tuy in regardn to the matter:
"When the matter of a baseball
c'ub for Kinston was brought u be
fore th? Chamber of Commerce last
night, a letter was produced by the
secretary from S. F. Teague, of Golds
boro, secretary of the temporary or
ganization of the proposed Eastern
Carolina Baseball League, stating that
it was hoped this city would enter a
team in the association.
"The Chamber took no action, and
directed that the letter be turned
over to "the athletic associat'on," or
representatives of the sporting fra
ternity of the city.
"The athletic association does not
exist, and there seems to be lack of
initiative on the art of the fans to
some sort of an organization ' or an
investigation of sentiment.
"In several of the cities which have
signified their willingness to join the
league, mass meetings have been
called, and wherever this was the
case a ready response by the public
was had. In one or two instances
almost enough money has been rais
ed at the meetings to launch teams
with solid financial backing.
"A six-team league is planned, with
a sixty-game schedule, a $1,000 salary
limit, and a $300 forfeiture. Secre
tary Teague says: 'It is possible to
have some good ball in these towns
in eastern Carolina without the usual
losses incurred in the past.'
' 'Public interest does not lack in
Kinston, and the delay those re
garded as leaders in baseball circles
in starting things seems to be the
only reaso, for the present inactivi
ty. A number of business men, real
izing the value of a regular season of
the sport as an advertsising asset,
are wi ling to do the fair tbing toward
the financing of a club."
